Will Rick Santorum fill the role of Winston Churchill?

Rising conservative star Rick Santorum stopped by the radio show today, just days after his amazing showing in the Iowa Caucus.

“I'm up here in New Hampshire and just finished an event in Manchester and headed up to Northfield which is in the beautiful Lakes region here in New Hampshire and we had a crowd last night in Brentwood, 300 people jammed into a place.  They were out the doors.  Just wonderful response, people signing up.  People coming by our headquarters, dropping off checks.  Got folks coming and volunteering,” Santorum said.

Glenn asked Santorum about the difference in spending between he and the other frontruneer, Mitt Romney.

“Chuck Grassley told me this at the very beginning when I first got out there.  It's that you can't buy Iowa.  And you know what?  You can't buy New Hampshire.  I don't know how much time you spend up there in the State of New Hampshire.  Just about everybody in New Hampshire is an elected official.  I mean, you run for everything up here.  I mean, and your state legislature, there's 400 of them in New Hampshire and they get paid $100 a year,” Santroum said.

“And so the idea that people are just going to listen to TV ads and listen to what the national media says or what the national poll said, that's just, that is not New Hampshire.  And I've been up here, this is my 31st visit.  I'm done over 100 town hall meetings.  We have a great base of support up here and it's building everybody day and we feel very comfortable that the citizen participants up here in New Hampshire are going to do what's necessary to make sure that our country turns around and they are going to give us a little bump.”

Glenn asked Santorum to come onto GBTV for an extended interview, saying that he wanted to get to know the candidate more and wondered if he filled the “hole in America” that needed to be filled by a Winston Churchill figure. Glenn noted that Churchill was run out of town for speaking out against the dangers of Germany. Glenn noted and has noted in the past that Santorum had a similar experience when he was speaking out against radical Islam and was eventually voted out of office in Pennsylvania.

“Well, I shrink at comparing myself to anybody, a huge historical figure like Winston Churchill.  So if we can put the Churchill relationship away because that's a little ‑‑ I'm a huge Churchill fan and wouldn't even say my name in the same breath.  So let me just say this, that they did run me out of town in Pennsylvania and, you know, I lost my lot.  But as you know, we did a ton of interviews during that time and we were saying words like Churchill back then but they didn't want to hear it.  I was out there talking about Iran and I was out there talking about winning in Iraq at a time when people said we needed to leave and tuck tail and take our lumps and get out and it wasn't popular.  And I understand that, and I took ‑‑ I took the lumps but I didn't give up.  And I went out there and worked on national security issues for the last five years as a think tank and wrote about it and lectured all over the country, on college campuses even on radical Islam and the threat of Iran in particular.  And now here we are.  And look.  Look at Iran.  Look at what they're on the precipice of.  In a sense we're at this moment, everyone thinks the economy's the number one issue, and it is, but the president of the United States of course, while he can have some impact in the economy, runs the national security of our country.  That's what president does.  That's his constitutional duty.  And having someone I think in ‑‑ as the nominee of our party who's got it right on these issues at a time when I think national security may be the biggest issue going into the fall election given what is possible in Iran between now and November,” Santorum said.

Santorum also took time to defend the attacks that are coming and have come at him throughout the election cycle.

“You know, people may not believe what I believe but they know that I believe what I believe.  And I think that's really an important thing.  That these folks are going to go and hit me, they are going to say, oh, you said this, and you can't be this extreme.  And I'll say, well, I did say this, I'm not extreme, and here's why,” he said.

 

 

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
