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.

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?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
