Senate candidate Greg Brannon once again proves why he could be the future of the Republican Party

It’s no secret that Glenn is not a fan of politicians, and he speaks to all of them with great skepticism. But early last month, he spoke with a Senate candidate from North Carolina, Dr. Greg Brannon, and he was pleasantly surprised by what he heard. In fact, Glenn went so far as call Brannon “perhaps the best candidate [he has] ever talked to the first time out of the chute.” Brannon once again joined the radio program this morning to talk about his campaign and to offer a fascinating history lesson on American foreign policy.

“I don't think the American people really understand the game that is being played at the international level with Ukraine and Putin and the laughingstock that we are. I certainly don't want to go to war. I don't want to get involved,” Glenn said. “But as somebody who would be in the Senate, what exactly would you do and what advice do you have for Americans and for the Senate?”

Brannon, who is a self-proclaimed history buff, proved just how deep is knowledge of U.S. history and politics runs with the overview he provided of his preferred foreign policy:

This is crucial… I love history. I've been reading about Europe and Asia for years. You look back at the Ukraine. Ukraine actually means, by definition… ‘border land’. It's between Europe and Asia. There's a crucial part there… You have to know the details of the geography, the economics, and the people there; how it's been divided over years; in World War I, how they split sides between the Triple Entente and Central Powers. This is not a knee reflex reaction. But the problem is our American policy has weakened us. We've weakened because of the amount of gasoline refineries since 1973. We've not drilled in Anwar. We have not made ourselves energy efficient.

I believe the word is meek. Our military must be meek, which is strength under control. We must be quietly powerful. Senator [Robert] Taft (R-OH), [President Ronald] Reagan, their foreign policy was phenomenal because they run back to John Quincy Adams and Thomas Jefferson. So we got to look at the details of this. But it does not mean weakening. It means strength.

Glenn, Pat, and Stu found themselves a little gob smacked by the Sen. Taft mention, and asked Brannon to expound upon that particular point:

Taft was beautiful. Mr. Republican, right? He might have been president if he didn't pass away, maybe even before [President Dwight] Eisenhower. His book on foreign policy talked about having phenomenal air force strength, for example. He did not want to retire from the world. He wanted to be engaged in it. But we must do it as peace through strength.

And that's why understanding the geography, the language, understanding the peninsula itself, how it is there – look at the gas. 60% of the gas pipeline was through Ukraine to Europe. What if we were selling gas to Europe? What if we had the free market to compete again? I believe in America. We are the superpower of free markets when we let our chains be off our hands, off our feet. That is strength.

I was thinking, sir, about something really clear here: What if our dollar was constitutionally backed by gold, which is Article I Section 10? What if we did that? Other countries would not run away from our currency. They would run towards our currency. There's so much intertwined here that we must look back and think about.

The Republican primary in North Carolina is scheduled for May 6. The establishment-backed Thom Tillis is his competition. Tillis is the speaker of the North Carolina House. Brannon is quite optimistic about his chances against Tillis, though he is essentially fighting against the Republican Party. Should he make it through the primary, Brannon will square off against incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC).

“We're the only candidate against Senator Hagan to – five months in a row – either beaten her or tied with her. We're tied with the Karl Rove and McConnell candidate,” Brannon said. “And if you look at the independents, we win significantly. That's why we're being attacked because Mr. Tillis will never debate us. I would love to be on a stage with him. I want to know how he allowed Common Core in our state. How he was actually getting state exchanges done. He said, ‘Obamacare is a good idea. We just can't afford it.’ If that's conservatism, that's not our party. We're going to stand firm.”

“If Greg sounds like somebody that you feel you want to support, I mean, I have not heard anybody speak like this. I mean Matt Bevin is really good [too]. I would tell you: Count your blessings, America, because five years ago we said, ‘Where are the good people’… Here they are,” Glenn said. “And really, if you don't step up now, it's going to be too late… You want the Constitution? Then you go Greg Brannon, you go Matt Bevin, you find someone like that. They're there, but it's all going to rely on you doing something about it. If you have money, donate. If you have time, donate.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
