Meet the Senate candidate Glenn believes has ‘the Constitution running through his veins’

As the midterm elections draw nearer, Glenn is focused on highlighting promising candidates from around the country. On radio this morning, Ben Sasse, who is running for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE), joined Glenn to discuss the current state of American politics and how he hopes to make an impact.

Last month, Glenn spoke to Sasse’s primary challenger, Shane Osborn, the former Nebraska state treasurer who has been endorsed by FreedomWorks. Sasse, meanwhile, enjoys the source of conservative stalwart Senator Mike Lee (R-UT).

“There are two guys that are running in Nebraska for this seat. Both Republicans are just stunning,” Glenn said. “Ben Sasse is one of them.”

To begin, Glenn asked Sasse to explain why Nebraska voters should trust him to hold fast to conservative principles if he makes it to Washington D.C.

“I'm not a politician. I'm running for office because we owe our kids freedom. We owe it to our kids to pass onto them a great and free and opportunity-filled world. And we're not on a path to doing that,” Sasse said. “President Reagan would regularly talk about the fact that, in a republic, we're always only one generation away from the extinction of freedom. Our kids don't get it by the bloodstream. They don't get it in their genes. They get it because we teach them the America Dream and the American way. But we've got a crisis in the country.”

Sasse believes the debt is among the most dangerous problems facing our country today. When you consider the rate at which we are raising the debt ceiling and the new entitlements – like Obamacare – that are being added, we could be on a collision course for a Greek-style collapse.

“Let's start with the fact that we have these screaming matches in Washington when the $14.3 trillion dollar debt ceiling limit goes to $16 trillion, goes to $17 trillion… Our true unfunded obligation numbers are more than 4 times bigger than that. We're on a path to a Greek-style debt crisis,” Sasse explained. “Politicians think they are Santa Clause. They make promises that don't add up. And then instead of dealing honestly with them, they add another entitlement in the form of Obamacare.”

Glenn found himself impressed by Sasse’s passion for and knowledge of the Constitution. He sees a lot of similarities between Sasse and Sen. Lee.

“I see what Mike Lee likes in you and why he endorsed you because you sound to me, very much like Mike Lee,” Glenn concluded. “I mean that as a compliment. I can hear the Constitution running through your veins, which is very, very good.”

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
