TheBlaze Radio’s Doc Thompson breaks down some national races that really matter

Glenn is not the only member of TheBlaze team who is looking to highlight up-and-coming talent in the conservative movement. Doc Thompson, host of The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson on TheBlaze Radio Network, and his producer Skip LaCombe have been scouring the country looking for key races that could really have an impact this November. Doc and Skip introduced Glenn to strong candidates like Matt Bevin in Kentucky and Greg Bannon in North Carolina, and Doc joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss the importance of the 2014 midterms.

“Doc is one of my favorite employees along with Skip because these guys don't just sit around and wait for us to say, ‘Hey, here's what we're gonna do.’ They just take it on,” Glenn said. “One day, I find out that these guys have taken their own car and their own money and everything else, and they are like, We're going to go across the country. We're going to meet all these candidates.’ And they did.”

Last year, Doc and Skip traveled to a total of 20 states and met countless people along the way. What is so exciting about this election cycle is that we don’t need to win every race in order to make an impact. Sending just a couple key reinforcements will greatly bolster the work of Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rand Paul (R-KY).

“I wouldn't steer you wrong. Greg Brannon is one of the ones I said stands out. Let's get him some attention. He's definitely one. Matt Bevin… tremendous,” Doc said. “We don't need to put 400 people in there. We need a couple of reinforcements to people like Cruz and Lee, and you're there.”

“Those are the two really that we found to be just incredible candidates,” Pat agreed. “I mean, what an amazing thing it would be to add Greg Brannon and Matt Bevin to Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Mike Lee. You're onto something there.:

Other notable candidates Doc has discovered in the last dew months is Sam Clovis, who is running for Senate in Iowa, and David Brat, who is challenging House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.

“He's an economist at Randolph-Macon College. He has laid out an entire argument of how amnesty actually hurts other countries as well… He's brilliant,” Doc said. “I don't know if you know this, [but] if John Boehner leaves, Eric Cantor takes over the House. He's the heir apparent. John Boehner is weak. Eric Cantor is a snake.”

In the lead up to November Doc and Skip have vowed to spend a good deal of their time providing a platform for conservative minded candidates that don’t enjoy the support of the establishment GOP machine.

“Every day we're spotlighting another state to bring some candidates to your attention,” Doc concluded. “If you like these guys, do your work and vet them some more. And if you like them after that, tell people about them maybe send them a couple dollars… We'll do the heavy lifting for you. We'll funnel through it for you.”

You can listen to Doc on The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson weekdays from 6am to 9am ET on TheBlaze Radio Network. Not up that early? You can also listen to the program anytime, anywhere on demand HERE.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
