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.”

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
