Glenn met Senate candidate Matt Bevin at FreePAC Kentucky… did he live up to the hype?

On Saturday, Glenn headed to Louisville, Kentucky for FreePAC. Hosted by FreedomWorks, the event featured conservative pundits, politicians, entrepreneurs, and community leaders offering solutions to the problems that face our nation. Glenn delivered the keynote speech at the event, and he also had the opportunity to formally meet some of the candidates he has come to know through radio and television interviews. On radio this morning, Glenn explained why “these are the kinds of people that we have been waiting for.”

“So we went to FreePAC in Kentucky this weekend, and I met with some candidates,” Glenn said. “These are the kinds of people that we have been waiting for. These are the kinds of people that we've been praying for. These are exactly the people that we had been begging for five years ago… They're here now.”

One of the candidates Glenn has been particularly excited about is U.S. Senate candidate Matt Bevin who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky. While Bevin has spoken to Glenn on both radio and TV many times over the last few months, the two have never met. Bevin spoke right before Glenn at Saturday’s event, and they got to spend a bit of time together backstage.

“I spent some time with Matt for the first time behind-the-scenes and spent about 20 minutes talking to him and his wife and his best friend,” Glenn said. “I will tell you that I was impressed with Matt Bevin beforehand. I was probably a hundred times more impressed after meeting with him personally. The guy is the real deal. And I really truly believe called by God.”

As Glenn explained, the way he felt meeting with Bevin this weekend was quite similar to how he felt when he first encountered Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“I think this is the best candidate I have seen behind-the-scenes. I don't think I've ever walked away feeling better about somebody than Matt Bevin,” Glenn said. “I was thoroughly impressed. Pat was, too.”

This year’s crop of small government, liberty-minded candidates truly has the potential to change the landscape of Congress. Glenn encouraged the audience to find a candidate – Republican, Democrat, libertarian – and support them in whatever way they can.

“Teddy Roosevelt's dream of a progressive Republican Party is on the ropes. You are so close to winning… But the key is: Don't listen to the progressive Republican media,” Glenn concluded. “This country has to be about principles not politics and politicians. Principles over parties. So you found your principles. But while you were busy being busy, others have heard the call and have risen up. Now you have the best of both worlds. Now you can be busy being busy doing the things you're supposed to do and have some people who can actually represent you and hold true to the Constitution. It's all here in the next few months.”

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
