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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
