Mitch McConnell’s challenger explains what is at stake in this election

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) Senate seat is in trouble. Polling shows that if Sen. McConnell is to make it through the Republican primary, he could very well lose to the Democratic challenger. Fortunately, there is a very strong candidate seeking the Republican nomination, and over the last several months he has significantly closed the gap in the polls while gaining the endorsement of many conservative institutions. On radio this morning, Matt Bevin joined Glenn to discuss the progress of his campaign and why he believes the 2014 election is so important.

“I am really thrilled to have on with us now Matt Bevin. He is running for U.S. Senate against Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. Freedom Works now has officially enforced him. We are thrilled,” Glenn said. “We've had him on how many times now? Two times, three times, and every time we've had him on, we feel good about him. We don't trust any politician. Matt, thank goodness, at this point doesn't have enough politician in him yet to feel slippery.”

So what made the veteran, entrepreneur, and father of nine decide to go to Washington?

“I've been asked a number of times and it's an important point of clarification. I don't mean to sound flip in saying this, but it's less a function of what I want to do and more a function of what I'm willing to do,” Matt said. “The reason I'm willing to do this is I look at the fiscal path we're on as a nation… and I realize it is so remarkably unsustainable… And I realize we are trying to run our federal government in a way that no one could run their home, no one could run a business. And yet we're digging deep into this hole of debt and saddling our children and grandchildren with the responsibility they may not be able to handle.”

Matt was down over 50 points in the polls just a few short months ago, but he has closed that gap tremendously as grassroots conservatives from around the country rally around his message. Sen. McConnell has revealed himself to be firmly rooted in the establishment GOP. And while Matt believes the fight for the “heart and soul” of the Republican Party will be a theme this election cycle, he sees something ever bigger at stake.

“There is a lot of discussion… about how this is a battle for the heart and soul of the Republican Party, but I would challenge your listeners to think about the fact that it's really much bigger than that,” Matt said. “What is at stake really is a battle for the heart and soul of the entire political process because what is at stake is whether or not we will continue to be a government of and by and for the people or whether we are going to be of and by and for a handful of these small – what Reagan called – ‘intellectual elite’, these individuals who believe that they are the ones that are going to make the decisions for us. They'll choose the candidates. They'll choose the time. They'll choose the place. They'll choose the deals.”

Matt has a message and a voice that will resonate well with conservatives and libertarians who are looking for a small government advocate, but with the funding and forces of the Republican Party squarely behind Sen. McConnell, Matt will need help to keep his campaign going.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
