Could this be the candidate to take down Lindsay Graham?

Nancy Mace, the first woman to graduate from The Citadel, announced her candidacy for U.S. Senator for the state of South Caroline, officially throwing down the gauntlet for progressive incumbent Sen. Lindsay Graham. Glenn has been desperate for a strong candidate to rise up and challenge Graham - is Mace the answer?

During the interview, Glenn pulled no punches and asked tough questions right out of the gate. He wanted to press Mace as she should be facing some tough obstacles in her quest to be the new Senator from South Carolina.

"$6.3 million war chest. You're going to run against (Sen. Graham) in a state that allows the Democrats to vote in the Republican primary. There's a ton of Democrats that don't want to see Lindsey Graham go anywhere. He has a fortune. The last person that spends the most amount of money in the last 30 days is going to be the winner and this guy also is going to get all of the democratic votes. How do you think you're going to beat him?" Glenn asked.

Mace said that she feels like she has to force a run-off in order to make sure a true conservative comes out on top.

"I disagree with you on part of the remarks because no one in this race is going to have the mountain of money that he has. He has special interests, he has PACs, he has a lot of money. And no one's going to raise that kind of cash. But what we are going to do is build a grassroots network around this, around the state. And that's the only way you're going to win in this race is if you're able to have a message that, I think that most people can believe in and also have a grassroots network. And that's what we're doing right now. I mean, we've been overwhelmed by the response of people to be included in this race. And in South Carolina, it's a runoff state. So the goal here is to force a runoff. And I believe the most conservative candidate wins the primary after the runoff," she said.

What is the biggest issue facing the country? Mace said it was the lack of trust in government.

"I think the biggest problem facing this country today is trust. I mean, do we trust this government to do what it says it's going to do? Do we trust this government with our individual liberties to protect us?" she said. "I look what's happening with ObamaCare and I look what's happening with our individual liberties when our personal e‑mail records and phone records are being gone through with the NSA spying program."

Glenn also asked a tough question of her, but one that he has asked a lot of candidates over the past year: How is your soul?

"What I can say about my soul is that, I mean, I am founded on very specific principles and I do not waver, and I believe I'm on the right side here, on the right side of the angels. And when I go to Washington, I'm not going to waver from that. I mean, I have shown consistently in my life that I'm a very hard worker and I'm self‑reliant and that's what I want to bring to D.C. I mean, I see what's happening up there and it's very frustrating," she said. "I believe in life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That's what our country was founded on and that's what I believe in."

Glenn wished Mace luck in her race, but when he came back from the break he seemed a little less than impressed by the interview. Pat and Stu wondered why he threw her some obscure and unusual questions about the state of her soul on her first major outing since announcing her candidacy.

"She's the candidate that has announced now, the first one that was announced and I'm getting all kinds of heat here in the studio because I was tough on her. Well, are you kidding me? I was a piece of cake compared to what she's about to show up and face," Glenn said. " A, that's my job; and B, if you are a small government person and you can't handle an interview on the Glenn Beck Program, you can't handle it."

"When I was asking her about her soul, what do you believe?" he said. "Tell me what it means to you. What is the core of who you are? What makes you stand against that lion? Because I guarantee you when that lion is unleashed and it's coming toward you, you're going to question everything in your life. And he's going to make you question everything in your life. And the media is going to then eat your entrails. So you better know who you are and what keeps you moving and why you're doing it."

Glenn said that he hoped in future interviews that she would make a point of talking about what it was like to be the first woman to go through The Citadel and how the obstacles she faced shaped her into a fighter and the woman she is today.

"Do you know what it's like to go to the Citadel? As the first woman to graduate? They didn't want me to graduate. They put me through absolute hell. I had to be torn down, and I was alone. And I was torn down to the very fiber of my being. I know who I am. I know what gets me through life. And it's these principles that I had to hold onto at the ‑‑ tell the story of the worst time you were at the Citadel, when you thought, there's no way, nobody wants me to succeed, there's no way I can succeed. Tell me the story of what got you to succeed. Give me a reason to see that you're a fighter. Give me a reason to see that you're not ‑‑ once you get your teeth into it, you are not letting go. That's what I want to see," Glenn said.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
