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.

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
