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.

A shocking report from Yahoo News recently exposed a covert operation to track Americans' social media posts for "inflammatory" content — carried out by the U.S. Postal Service.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere broke down what we know about the USPS' surveillance effort, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (or iCOP), and the role it plays in providing other federal agencies with information on "right-wing leaning" accounts, among other data, and asked: Who exactly authorized the U.S. Postal Service to monitor the internet?

"It was found out yesterday and released in a story by Yahoo News, the United States Postal Service is apparently tracking social media posts as part of a clandestine program, searching for inflammatory messages," Glenn began. "Wait, the Postal Service has a clandestine operation going on?"

Glenn read highlights from the Yahoo report, noting that iCOP has quietly had analysts combing through various social media sites, particularly those considered "right-wing leaning," looking for "inflammatory" postings and then sharing information with other government agencies.

"The Postal Service is now spying on you. But no big deal, right?" Glenn added sarcastically.

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck noted how big banks are currently making moves — in an effort to maintain their profits despite the declining rate of loans — that have never been done before.

But what does their unprecedented action mean for the economy? How is big government contributing to it all? And what does it mean for YOUR savings?

Watch the clip below to hear Glenn explain how all of this could be the beginning of the end for the U.S. dollar and how to prepare for what's coming:

Former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin is facing several charges for his role in the death of George Floyd. But attorney Andrew Branca, who specializes in self-defense law, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain exactly what must be proven in order for those charges to stand.

Did Chauvin act reasonably in the context of the entire situation? Were his actions directly responsible for Floyd's death, or could it be blamed on factors beyond Chauvin's control?

Branca also argued that the prosecutor committed misconduct serious enough for a potential appeal, how political tension makes it "impossible" for a fair trial, why he would vote not guilty, and what sentence Chauvin is facing if the actual jury disagrees.
