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.

 

 

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
