Matt Kibbe joins Glenn to handicap the upcoming primary races

What promises to be a very big and very exciting primary season kicked off in Texas yesterday. Republicans chose Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott as their gubernatorial candidate, while liberal darling Wendy Davis took the Democratic nomination. Unsurprisingly, Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) made it through his primary unscathed. On radio this morning, FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe joined Glenn to discuss what conservatives can expect to see in the coming months.

“Well, the results out of Texas last night are actually very exciting if you are a TEA Party person,” Glenn said. “The national media will look at the top line results of Cornyn. They'll say, ‘Well, TEA Party is dead.’ There was no chance of Cornyn going anywhere. That was not something that was seriously contested. I wish it were, but it wasn't seriously contested. If you look at the turnout, if you look at all of the local, all of the statewide offices where the incumbents were thrown out or thrown into a runoff, it's significant.”

One of the major races FreedomWorks is focused on is the U.S. Senate race in Kentucky between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Matt Bevin. Glenn, Pat, and Stu have spoken to Bevin many times and are very impressed with what they’ve heard. Matt explained that Sen. McConnell is in serious trouble.

“The [Karl] Rove team is very invested in protecting Mitch McConnell. And you think about the entire D.C. establishment, whether it be the political consultants who make so much money or the lobbyists that trade on the relationships with leadership, they're all for Mitch McConnell. It's not helping him that much in the state of Kentucky,” Matt said. “Mitch McConnell is actually statistically losing to a virtual no-name Democrat in a state where he's already spent $10 million. This is a state where Mitt Romney won Kentucky by 21 points.”

Despite all the money that has been spent by the establishment to protect Sen. McConnell, Matt believes the strategy is actually backfiring. Even though there is no doubt Bevin will be outspent in the race, Bevin has a very good chance of coming out on top.

“I think it's actually backfiring. There's partisan polls showing Mitch McConnell is winning and there's other polls by the Democrats that tell their story. But the trend is that Matt Bevin is steadily gaining on Mitch McConnell,” Matt explained. “And he's starting from zero. If you look at the trends, say, Rand Paul in Kentucky or Ted Cruz in Texas, it's quite similar. That by no means says that we're done, but it means that we're in the game. And I think a lot of the grassroots organizations and groups that support constitutional candidates are going to have to step up.”

With the fifth anniversary of the 9/12 Project just around the corner, Glenn asked Matt to reflect on the impact of the movement. Matt said the thought of have senators like Mike Lee (R-UT), Ted Cruz (R-TX), or Rand Paul (R-KY) in office would have seemed highly improbably just five years ago, and yet here we are.

“Michael Barone wrote a really smart piece a couple days ago talking about how we've fundamentally changed the conversation in Washington, how we're reshaping the Republican Party, and compared us to the conservative version of the left wing peace movement in the 1960s,” Matt said. “So we're changing everything. I do think that activists need to understand… this is a lifetime commitment… You don't get to fix Washington overnight as much as we desperately need to. We got to play the long game because if we go away, they go back to business as usual.”

FreedomWorks is in the middle of a “money bomb” and could really use your support. They are trying to raise $200,000. Glenn encouraged the audience to visit FreedomWorksForMe.com and consider giving what they can to help get more conservatives elected into Congress.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
