Michele Bachmann weighs in on the GOP nomination race

Michele Bachmann called into radio to give her thoughts on where the GOP race is headed and why Santorum was able to pull off some upsets last night in the American Midwest.

"Well, I think actually what you saw was a reaction to what president Obama has done in the last week or so with this ruling on forcing religious universities and schools to offer contraceptives against their teachings and practices, and I think this was really what you might call the first social policy election because this has been so prominent in the news. People are very upset about this. This is something that I think Rick Santorum has talked about, and I think people are reacting, and this is really very bad news for president Obama because it shows he's not going to get away with Obamacare and when the president and the health and human services secretary made the decision to force religious organizations to deny their own religious beliefs in accordance with the government's will, that was too far and so this is a signal from the American people that they are not going to put up with Obamacare, and I think that's part of the reaction," she told Glenn.

Glenn has been focused a lot on the attacks that people of faith are experiencing at the hands of the federal government. Glenn wanted to get Bachmann's thoughts on the matter during the interview.

"Do you believe that Christians and Jews, people who are living their faith are prepared for the kind of full frontal assault on their faith and prepared to really truly stand through what I think you believe and I know I believe is coming?" Glenn asked her.

"I do believe it's coming. Are they prepared? I think that your show is a wonderful beacon to try and prepare people for that, but I think they aren't prepared with the threats particularly to the United States that we're seeing from our southern border, and part of what I'm very concerned about is the influence that Iran is having on our southern border," she said.

Glenn also asked Bachmann, who said she was not endorsing anyone at this time, if there was a candidate who she would be very scared to see win the Presidency in 2012.

"Is there anybody that is running that you say and you don't have to tell me a name God help us all if that person is elected?" he asked.

"Barack Obama," she said.

Good answer!

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
