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.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
