Santorum comes from behind to nearly tie Romney in Iowa

Rick Santorum pulled off a huge upset last night as he came within eight votes of winning the Iowa Caucus. While others had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising, Santorum took to the streets and tried to meet as many Iowans as possible. As other candidates rose and fell over time, more and more saw Rick Santorum as the person who embodied the values they were looking for in a conservative president. As a result, the man who was a blip on the radar a few weeks ago ended up neck and neck with Mitt Romney, a man who had been a major political force for years now.

One Iowan called into the show today and said that one of the reasons he spoke up for Santorum was because of his interviews with Glenn over the past few weeks.

“Last night I attended the caucus in my precinct here in Cedar Rapids and it was what was ‑‑ what might be called organized chaos. Very disorganized. There ‑‑ you know, I mean, everything just seemed like, "Well, okay, we're going to just do whatever we want to do and this is, you know, after all it's just ‑‑ it doesn't really matter. It's really just a straw vote and so forth." But as we got through it, it is, you know, do we have anyone to speak for Michele Bachmann? And they're doing them alphabetically. And how about Herman Cain. And no one stood up. And no one stood up. And came to Jon‑Jon Huntsman ‑‑ I'm sorry. What's that Dad calls him. Jon Huntsman and, you know, fella stood up and said, well, you know, I don't really know him, but... and talked a little about and that was terrific. And then it came time for Mr. Romney and a fellow stood up and just, he had a prepared speech. On and on and on and on and on and I finally said, okay, enough is enough. And I stood up and I got applause. And then they said, is there anyone to speak for Rick Santorum? And there was no one to speak for him. And I could not sit in my chair any longer. I had to stand for something. So I stood up and I said, I would like to speak for Mr. Santorum. And it was because of your conversations with him and The Blaze,” he said.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
