2012: Some candidates that Glenn likes...

Glenn Beck does not endorse candidates, but he does offer his opinion. He has put together a list of some of the people he has met that he believes need to be sent to Congress. He has met each of them and believes that they “get it”.  However, he strongly recommends that uou research these candidates independently and decide for yourself if they represent your values and principles.

Ted Cruz - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Texas

A real conservative who will be tough on big spenders. Cruz understands what we as a country face economically, and he is unafraid to face those challenges head on. If you’re a Texan or someone who can help Ted Cruz, we ask you to take a look and help Ted Cruz out.

Mark Neumann - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Wisconsin

Mark Neumann is a strong small government conservative. He stood up to Newt Gingrich when Gingrich was in Congress. First elected to the House of Representatives in 1991, Neumann stood by his values and principles at the expense of his own political career. While in Congress, he fought hard against big spending, and when he refused to vote for bills bloated with pork. While others would march in lockstep with committee leaders in exchange for earmarks, Mark stood his ground and was subsequently thrown off committees. A clear and finance candidate, Neumann believes that America is now ready to face the hard reality of the economy.

Chris Stewart - Utah’s 2nd Congressional District

Chris Stewart is a good friend of Glenn’s and “one of the best men (he) knows”. Glenn met him for the first time about two years ago, and he initially wanted to hire him to work for his company Mercury Radio Arts. While Glenn knew him as a fantastic writer, he is also an Air Force Legend. He is a man of faith, as well as a stand up guy who will hold fast to his principles. He understands the economy, as well as the threats America faces from radical Islam. And while he sees the danger facing this country, he has a strong belief that things could be fixed. While Glenn would hate to see his good friend in the political mess of Washington, D.C. - Glenn has said that he has hope that if Chris Stewart is there, the country can get back on track

Daniel Bongino - Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Maryland

Dan Bongino is a former, highly decorated, Secret Service agent who left the White House when he realized he hadn’t heard any honesty out of a politician in a long time. He felt that America needs leaders who believed in her and everything she could be. He decided to leave his job and pension and go back to school and get degrees in Psychology and Business Administration. Like many candidates on this list, Glenn believes Bongino is above all an honorable man who understands the threats facing the country from radical Islam and the economy.

Dan Liljenquist - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Utah*

Dan Liljenquist has an amazing life story. He was almost killed in a plane crash while on a mission trip when he was younger. He lost many friends in the crash. As a man of faith, he understood that he was saved from certain death by God for a reason, and he does not waste a day on anything that doesn’t preserve the honor of the country and his own integrity. He deeply understands what we face as a country economically if we do not send the right people to Washington who will join with others who want to cut big spending.

Jeff Flake - Arizona’s 6th congressional district. Republican party

Glenn believes that Jeff Flake is a man who really “gets it” when it comes to the economy. He has a strong record on taxes and spending. In fact, he has a perfect record with Club for Growth.

As Glenn continues to meet with candidates over the next few weeks and months, we will continue to add to this list.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
