Rick Perry speaks with Glenn on the day of the Iowa Caucus

On radio this morning, Glenn welcomed several of the presidential hopefuls from the GOP to the show from Iowa where they are preparing for the first primary voting. Glenn first welcomed the current governor of his new home state of Texas – Rick Perry.

Perry cast himself and his campaign as Washington outsiders who were looking to overhaul the bureaucracy in Washington. “The essence of this campaign is that we've got to have an outsider who will come into Washington D.C. and overhaul it, dismantle these agencies. I mean, the idea that we even have a Department of Education that is taking our money and then skimming off billions plus dollars to administer are the place and then pick winners and choose winners and losers and send it back to the states that they want to send it to is just absolutely insane.”

“Why would you want a bureaucrat in Washington D.C. telling you how to run your state, whether it's environmental laws, whether it's education, whether it's delivery of healthcare or transportation infrastructure?” Perry added.

Perry said that states should be able to determine their own regulations and standards and that claims like “It’s everyone’s air” shouldn’t mean that a national federal agency should interfere.

“The issue is this: It's our water, it's our air, and if you think that we care less about our children's health, the next generation's health, I beg to differ with you. As a matter of fact, Texas using our own program cleaned up the air more than any other state in the nation during the decade of the 2000s. We reduced ozone levels by 27%, nitrogen oxide levels by 58% with our own flexible permitting program because we didn't kill jobs. We were creating jobs but we were using a flexible permitting process which I won't go into the details, but it worked.”

Perry also promised to severely limit the role of The Fed.

“I'd move the Fed back to a single purpose agency and its single job would be to make sure that inflation stays under control. And that's it. And I would make it incredibly transparent,” he said.

Perry also emphasized the importance of faith and Judeo-Christian values.

“I tell pastors all across the country: Do not fall into that trap that you cannot talk about the values and the principles that are biblically based and that it is our responsibility as Americans to take our values that are taught biblically and allow them to be discussed and to put them in place in the public arena. That is the principles that this country was based upon, the Judeo Christian values that the vast majority of our Founding Fathers believed in, they put them in place.”

“As President, one of my most important jobs is going to be to create an environment where you don't overtax, you don't overregulate, the government becomes less consequential in people's lives and they have the freedom to take care and their family, the dignity of a job,” Perry added.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
