Meet the Senate candidate from NC Glenn called ‘the best candidate’ he has ever spoken to out of the gate

It’s no secret that Glenn is not a fan of politicians, and he speaks to all of them with great skepticism. But on radio this morning, he spoke with a Senate candidate from North Carolina, Dr. Greg Brannon, and he was pleasantly surprised by what he heard. In fact, Glenn went so far as call Brannon “perhaps the best candidate [he has] ever talked to the first time out of the chute.”

“So we have decided that we wanted to be able to highlight some of the candidates around the country that are really truly winnable. And beyond winnable, they are candidates that are cut from the cloth of Ted Cruz, Ran Paul, or Mike Lee,” Glenn said. “I have not met this man, but… Matt Kibbe has compared him to Ted Cruz and Rand and Mike. He's running for Senate against the Democrat Kay Hagan in North Carolina. His name is Greg Brannon.”

Brannon is a father of seven, practicing OBGYN, and longtime listener of the program, who openly discussed what led him to run for Senate and what he believes to be the biggest issues facing the nation. To begin, Glenn asked him why he chose to enter the political fray.

“Well first off, I believe it's a service not politics. I'm 53. Our generation is going to pass on a less free America, unless we stand. And I'm not going to look at my children’s face and the

9,000 babies I delivered 15 years from now and they say: Where were in the fight for liberty. This is 1770 all over again,” Brannon said. “Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul – that's our future of our country. It's going back to our foundational core beliefs and who we are. And I'm not going to sit here on the sidelines.”

One of the things about Brannon that most impressed Glenn was how well read he is. Brannon chose to read H.R. 2590 (aka Obamacare) in its entirety because he believes “in knowing how things work and why.” He also explained how effected he was by a letter between Thomas Jefferson and his nephew that Glenn has referred to.

“Jefferson wrote to his nephew: Challenge everything. And we have to challenge this idea of who we really are,” Brannon said. “And let me to ask myself two questions: Who is sovereign, and what is the role of government. And both those are answered the second paragraph of Jefferson’s declaration… I'm just pumped to be out here. We have to make this Constitution what it means – that's what Washington challenged us.”

With the Republican Party in such disarray, Glenn asked Brannon how he plans to combat it should he make it to Washington.

“The Whigs, the Federalists, they messed up. They lost the actual true beliefs of who we were, and they went away. I believe what Ronald Reagan said when he was asked, Why did you leave the Democratic Party. He said, ‘No, they left me.’ I'm in the same position,” Brannon said. “I believe the party is Reagan and Goldwater and Taft and Coolidge. The Boehners and McConnells are... exposing who they are, which is great because the true rank and file Republicans and conservative Democrats are liberty loving constitutionalists. They are looking for men and woman who will honor their oath and Article VI. We have do that, the paradigm shift happens.”

“So I'm optimistic in this because I've seen it,” he continued. “We've traveled about 88,000 miles around the State. I'm still on call every day. I deliver 20 babies a month. And I'm just being that servant citizen… Glenn, you don't know what you've done by encouraging me to read, to challenge the status quo. Those kinds of things have empowered.”

After sharing his thoughts on immigration reform and answering the dreaded "how is your soul" question, Glenn had nothing but praise for the Republican candidate.

“I will tell you Greg… besides Rand Paul, I don't think I've ever talked to a candidate that has quoted more or listened to the show or read the show more than you have. And I appreciate that,” Glenn concluded. “I've talked to a lot of politicians. I've talked to a lot of candidates. And it usually takes me a while to warm up to them before I trust them. You are so well read. You are so well thought out. I believe you. You are perhaps the best candidate I have ever talked to the first time out of the chute.”

Brannon is currently in a primary battle against the GOP establishment-backed North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis, and he could use your support. To learn more about Brannon's campaign, click HERE.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
