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.

 

 

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."
