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.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
