Is this state senator the next Ted Cruz? Another candidate steps up to challenge Lindsay Graham

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to South Carolina Republican State Senator Lee Bright, who is challenging incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham in the upcoming senate race. Bright joins fellow candidates Nancy Mace and Richard Cash in the Republican primary fight, and Glenn found himself impressed with Bright and his background.

“So now you are officially in the game and you are officially running against Lindsey Graham,” Glenn said to Bright on radio this morning. “What is the reason why people from South Carolina should trust that you're going to be any different?

“Well, I've done that in the State Senate, I've been very conservative,” Bright said. “I've got a 100 score with the South Carolina Club For Growth, got the high score in the legislature in the Republican liberty caucus. I've been consistent on social and fiscal issues. Basically I've been fighting the good fight and looking forward to doing that in Washington.”

Sen. Graham made headlines recently for his ill-advised comments about not knowing how bad things really were in Egypt. He has said he doesn’t mind if the NSA listens to his phone calls from time to time. He mocked fellow Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for his decision to filibuster the Obama administration’s drone policy. It’s safe to say that Sen. Graham does not align with conservative values. But would Bright be any different? Glenn asked him what he would do upon arriving in Washington.

“I think somebody's going to take the fight to Obama,” Bright said. “Instead of trying to find ways to compromise with someone who is dismantling the foundation of our nation, we need to take the fight to him and we're not doing that… We've got three in the U.S. Senate that are doing it and, you know, I'm hoping that we get more. But it's just a matter of taking the fight to him.”

When you are facing off against someone like Sen. Graham, you are really facing off against a machine of progressives from both sides of the aisle who will stop at nothing to maintain power. Glenn reminded Bright that it will be a difficult and trying fight.

“And that's what I told people after I got elected to the State Senate. I said, ‘You think things are bad until you get down there and you find out how bad it really is.’ And I'm sure Washington's even worse,” Bright explained. “I've been through a lot in my life. I have had to go through a business that did not survive the economic times, I had cancer when I was in high school, my wife and I had two very tough miscarriages. I've been through a lot in my life, and the very thing that holds me is being grounded in my faith. And I realize that we're all but vapors on this Earth, and I want to be able to make a difference and to be able to say that my life mattered. And by going up there and being a part of the crowd, I'm not going to be able to make a difference.”

“Okay,” Glenn responded. “So that brings me to my question: How's your soul?”

“How's my soul,” Bright reiterated. “I'm a sinner saved by grace. That's how my soul is. But I'm worried about the soul of America, which to me, right now we're in some dark times.”

While many have been known to falter on that particular question, Glenn was impressed by Bright’s response.

“I think I'm going to take that,” Glenn said. “I would like him to go a little deeper, but I think I'll take that one. I think I'll take that one.”

“Really,” Stu exclaimed. You're going to accept an answer to that question? You never accept any answer to that question.”

Challenging Sen. Graham will be no easy task, and Bright should expect a tedious fight. Glenn, however, came out of the interview surprisingly optimistic.

“I will tell you, you know who he reminds me of,” Glenn asked. “Ted Cruz – when we first started interviewing Ted Cruz. Not sure because I'd like to see the proof is in the pudding, but he said a lot of the same things that Ted Cruz said.”

"I will say that he definitely has a good handle on why he believes the things he believes,” Stu continued. “He doesn't seem like he's a guy who's coming to this as, ‘Oh, well, you know, I know the Rand Paul thing's kind of trendy at the moment. So I'm going to go down that road’… The question is can he win.”

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
