Glenn talks to State Senator Chris McDaniel about challenging a 41-year GOP incumbent Thad Cochran in Mississippi

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel about his campaign to unseat longtime incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) in the upcoming midterm election. Sen. Cochran has been in office a combined 41 years between his time as representative and senator, and McDaniel is looking to breathe new life into the seat. FreedomWorks has formally endorsed McDaniel, and he spoke openly to Glenn about his conservative roots.

Glenn first asked McDaniel to explain how he differs ideologically from Sen, Cochran, who enjoys the backing of the establishment GOP and a newly formed Super PAC.

“Well, in short, I value the Constitution, and I value liberty. And Senator Cochran has actually been in Washington for 41 years. He was a representative prior to being in the Senate,” McDaniel said. “The primary difference is I'm a liberty-based conservative – a Jeffersonian at heart, a Reaganite. Senator Cochran is not. He's more inclined to be a statist.”

“This is one of the guys that voted to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He's voted to increase the debt ceiling eleven times for more than $7.2 trillion,” he continued. “He's voting for higher taxes – higher gas taxes, higher Internet taxes, President [George H.W.] Bush’s tax increase. He voted for taxpayer-funded abortions. In Mississippi, that's almost unheard of.”

There is a litany of issues Congress will face in the coming months, and Glenn asked McDaniel to run through his stance on several hot-button topics.

Immigration

“It's very simple: Absolutely no to amnesty, close the borders, enforce the law… This is not a time to surrender or compromise on the issue of immigration reform,” he said. “Stand and be tough and do the right thing. I have been fighting that fight since 2008 in Mississippi and coauthored one of our fist illegal immigration measures during that year.”

Obamacare

“I was the state's lead council in the lawsuit. I represented now governor Phil Bryant in a class action, and we fought Obamacare all the way to the Supreme Court. I did that free of charge, pro bono, on behalf of the people, on behalf of my governor, and behalf of the Constitution,” McDaniel said. “I am very much against Obamacare. It doesn't need a Band-Aid. It doesn't need to be made more efficient. It needs to be repealed immediately. We need to put a knife through it – kill the act, kill the legislation, and move forward. Allow the states and people to begin to experiment in that arena… It's not too late to go back. Our Constitution demands we go back.”

Second Amendment

“I'm if Mississippi, Glenn. We love the Second Amendment. I’ll be a pro-Second Amendment guy. It represent our individual right to bear arms, not a collective right – a right I have fought for my entire life in the state senate and other ways,” he explained. “I’m a big proponent of the Constitution. It means exactly what it says and says exactly what it means. And the Second Amendment is just as precious, if not more so than the First or the others.”

McDaniel obviously faces an uphill battle, and Glenn asked how he plans to win this race.

“The people of Mississippi are waking up, waking up to the reality. It is no longer about back room deals. It is no longer and lobbyists selecting our senators. We have to wake the people up again. If they will awaken, there's nothing the American people can't accomplish. This race is not about me. It is not about Thad Cochran. It is about a movement,” McDaniel said. “If the people wake up and they're energized and engaged and enthusiastic, which they are, you are going to see a massive change in this country… If we deliver a strong message of conservatism with bold colors, like Reagan said… you will see the people rise up. They are instinctively conservative. They are instinctively constitutionalists. They are instinctively men and women of freedom. They will fight for us, if we remind them the reason for fighting.”

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
