Glenn talks to congressional candidate Katrina Pierson about taking on the establishment GOP

With the midterm elections just around the corner, Glenn has decided to make a habit of highlighting some promising candidates in federal and state elections all over the country. On radio this morning, Glenn introduced Katrina Pierson who is challenging Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX) for Texas District 32.

"We have made a promise to you that we would introduce you to some candidates that we think are pretty good… And you can decide from there. We also make a promise to each candidate that if you turn out to be a dirt bag, we turn on you so fast and so hard, that your head will spin,” Glenn said. “Katrina Pierson is running against Congressman Pete Sessions here in Texas… To call Pete a massive disappointment is a massive understatement. And you should get to know Katrina. Ted Cruz, who doesn't throw these things around lightly, called her an utterly fearless principled conservative, which I think is about the highest praise you could get from Ted Cruz.”

As Pierson explained, it is the depth of her life experience that has made her the conservative she is today.

“People always ask me how I became so conservative considering where I came from. And the simple answer is I just lived it. My mother was 14 years old when she was pregnant with me, and my grandfather said abortion was not an option,” Pierson explained. “But she had a biracial baby, and they didn't know what to do. Gladney said they didn't specialize in biracial babies, so my mother was sent to Kansas to give birth to me and give me up for adoption. She changed her mind, and brought me back to Texas. So the joke on the campaign is: I'm a native Texan born in Kansas.”

“But I also grew up with a teenage mom who became very much codependent on government and then became very much codependent on drugs, and that's what happens with these liberal policies. It traps you in an environment that you can't get out of,” she continued. “And then it finally breaks your spirit. And the rest of us caught up in that environment have to fight tooth and nail to get out of it. And I survived that, so I feel it's my duty to fight back against that because it's becoming the standard. This Administration feels like a redistribution of wealth should become the standard in this society and I cannot allow that.”

Pierson has served as a Steering Committee member for the Dallas Tea Party for the last five years, and she is also the founder of the Garland Tea Party and a member of the Texas Tea Party Caucus Advisory Committee. She worked on Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) campaign and has very real concerns with the ‘establishment’ GOP.

“Well, I think the GOP, you know, is fundamentally dismantling itself. We saw this last year that they are trying to alienate even the remaining of their base based upon special interests. The GOP used to be the party of opportunity, the party of freedom. And now it's shifted into the party of corporatism, the party of special interest and lobbyists,” she explained. And what's interesting is you have the liberals who have this marriage with government. And then you have Republicans who have a marriage with big business. And now you have big business married to government. So they're all one big happy family here. It's up to the people moving forward where the real power is to get engaged to stop that process.”

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.
