Matt Kibbe: We’re fighting for the soul of the Republican Party

On radio this morning, Matt Kibbe of Freedom Works joined Glenn to talk about the state of the Republican Party.

“We're in a total different situation than we were five years ago, aren't we,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “We're not sitting here as a helpless, small group of ragtag people who don't know what they're doing but are trying to throw some things together. We've used the five years – people have all over this country – to figure out how do I get my voice out? How do I cobble people together? How do I build a coalition? How do I have a source other than mainstream media? Where are we sitting today?”

“I think today we're fighting for the soul of the Republican Party, and whether or not it actually represents us or if we're going to have to go somewhere else to get what we need. But to me, it's not really a Republican or Democrat thing,” Matt said.” It's the insiders have really circled the wagons – doing it on Obamacare and doing it on all their special perks. And the reason that it's so hostile right now… [is] we're literally knocking on the front doo. And we're not only going to get a seat at the table, but they are afraid we're going to take over the directors... And I think that's why we need to understand how tough it is, how big the opportunity is to actually beat these guys.”

The President may have the media on his side when it comes to the public relations battle that accompanies a situation like we are currently facing in Washington, but is there any chance for Republicans to emerge victorious from this dogfight?

“I think if we can get the Republicans to hold the line, I think the reality is that we can beat the public relations campaign that the President of the United States always used to win because he had the soap box. But everything is more decentralized now,” Matt explained. “We can tell stories about the government stopping World War II veterans from getting into their own memorial. We can tell stories about all of the ridiculous, nonessential employees that we really don't need to be funding. We've got to drive the message from the outside. And I think we do have to focus on the Democrats. We've got the Republicans where we want them for now. And everybody is watching public opinion. They watch polls. It's almost like crack cocaine to these guys. But we got to drive the message from the outside. That's why Facebook, that's why talk radio, that's why the Internet is so potent when it comes to it being in the hands of patriots.”

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
