Could this be the guy to unseat Mitch McConnell?

It’s no secret that Senate Minority Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is not a Tea Party or conservative darling, which is why it should come as no surprise that Sen. McConnell will face opposition in his upcoming reelection fight. Matt Bevin, a military veteran and entrepreneur, hopes to be the guy to unseat him, and he joined Glenn on radio this morning to talk about his experience campaigning against the machine of the establishment GOP.

“Matt Bevin is the guy running against Mitch McConnell in Kentucky,” Glenn said. “We've had several conversations off air. While he has not received any endorsements yet, he has been spoken to by many people – FreedomWorks, the Senate Conservative Fund. They speak highly of him. In fact, I was told by a couple of people that he's the best Constitutional candidate they have seen in the nation. Wow.”

Glenn asked Matt to tell the audience a little bit about himself. “I'm a guy who grew up, second of six children, and I grew up in the country in a 3 bedroom house, ate everything we grew on our own land, had a variety of eggs, meat, milk and such. A very Spartan lifestyle, but a good one. It was a home grounded very much on Judeo Christian ethics and principles. And my Christian faith is really the cornerstone of who I am as a person,” Matt said. “So, my entire life as a business person, husband, father, how I will be as a politician is grounded in my Christian faith. So that's me from a broad stroke. I put myself through college. My dad worked in a small wood mill and my parents weren't in a position to help with that, which was fine. I put myself through the college, joined the military. I was an Army officer on active duty for a number of years. And since then, left the military a little over 20 years ago, have worked exclusively in the private sector. Small business owner, a guy who employs other people, pays taxes and pays attention. That's why I am in this race because I do not see the future, the American Dream isn’t being offered to future generations in the way that it was to mine and those who preceded me."

Considering the progressive nature of Sen. McConnell, it might be easy to look at Matt and say that anyone would be better, but Glenn asked him to explain where he would stand on the issues facing Congress today.

“There's two critical things. Obamacare as it relates to this CR and the debt limit. These two things are stepping into each other as we head into October. As it relates to Obamacare, I've been calling for, from the very get-go since I announced my candidacy in July exactly what's being done. And I’ve had conversation with the aforementioned senators and exactly about what the House is doing by sending this bill minus the funding for Obamacare to the Senate is exactly what I’ve been calling for,” Matt explained. “I don't think there's a tremendous part of spine on the part of Boehner but I applaud the fact that he's sending the bill and refusing to blink. I hope they continue and think that's the right thing to do. The American people do not want this. They cannot afford this. It's clear that it is so flawed it's not able to be implemented. If it's not able to be implemented as the law of the land for every one, then it should not be implemented period. And all this defunding will do, as you know, is simply kick this can down the road, which is frankly, not the right solution. But it is, at this moment in time, the best that can be done, which is not to fund the implementation of Obamacare.”

Matt went on to explain his positions on the NSA, the budget, the Middle East, and more. While Glenn was not jumping out of his seat, he found himself impressed with the candidate.

“Let's continue to do our homework on him,” Glenn said. “But I certainly like him more than Mitch McConnell. If this guy is who he says he is, imagine getting him and Louie Gohmert in – just those two, getting rid of Cornyn and McConnell.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

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.
