Lindsey Graham’s reelection chances are looking slim

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to South Carolina Republican State Senator Lee Bright, who is challenging incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) in the upcoming U.S. Senate race. The primary is set to take place June 10, and the goal is to force a runoff by keeping Sen. Graham from reaching the 50% threshold. The numbers are in Bright’s favor across several polls, and he spoke to Glenn about the important differences between him and the incumbent, why he feels the need to go to Washington, and more.

“Well, we all know that Lindsay Graham is a nightmare. Vote for Lee Bright. That's all, everybody. That's all Lee has to say,” Glenn said. “But Lee is here to say a little bit more than that. The goal in South Carolina is to keep Lindsay Graham under 50% in the June 10 primary because then there would be a runoff… and he's currently under 50% in the polls I have seen.”

To begin, Glenn asked Bright to lay out how he differs from Sen. Graham. One of the major differences involves the education system.

“There's so many. Actually, I cosponsored the bill to stop Common Core in South Carolina. We've been fighting that for quite a while now. I mean it was an experiment by some leftist folks that put some money into a plan, and I called it a scheme to try and take over the education system and it was done very cleverly because it's not actually a federal program but the federal money is involved. So they put $1.2 billion out there to encourage the states to acquiesce because that's what they often do.”

“We're a nation of laws and the rest of the world is watching… If somebody is here illegally, I don't know how you reward that behavior. I mean it sends a message. And the fact that Lindsey Graham has been tone deaf when it comes to the view of South Carolinians – he's more interested in what the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says versus what South Carolinians say,” he continued. “And also wanted to touch another subject. I was the lead sponsor on the Obamacare nullification in the Senate. And now the bill that passed the House is before the Senate.”

Bright is just 43 years old and has been a South Carolina state senator since 2008. As Glenn explained it, Bright has his “who life ahead” of him. So why does he want to go Washington?

“I think our republic is on the verge of being lost,” he said. “If we don't send some real constitutional conservatives into Congress to fight them the next few years, I don't know how we'll survive. We can't have Lindsey Graham and John McCain, who continually roll over and want to look rational and reasonable, when there's no compromise with this guy… [President Obama] is bent on destroying this country, and we've got to send folks up to Washington that are going to fight him.”

If Bright does in fact win the election, he will join the likes of Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Rand Paul (R-KY) in the fight for smaller government. Glenn asked Bright if he relates to any of those men.

“I'm probably more like Ted Cruz. I would say that I am out front. I've been in the state senate now for six years and every major fight I've been out front… You got a couple of type of Republicans. You got the ones that want to be conservative, they just don't have the courage. And then you've got those that really aren't anything. They just want to be elected,” Bright said. “And if Lee Bright beats Lindsey Graham, it will give the ones that don't have enough courage the courage to do the right thing. And it will scare the ones that don't really have… any core principles and those we either need to defeat or we need to put the fear into them.”

With just a couple of months to go before the primary, Bright has a “money bomb” going on right now to help fund his campaign. He is hoping to raise $100,000 today, and Glenn encouraged anyone in the audience with a couple of dollars to contribute to consider doing so.

“It's BrightForSenate.com. He's got a money bomb going on today. He'd like to raise over $100,000,” Glenn said. “Thank you very much, Lee. I appreciate it.”

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
