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.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
