Senate candidate Greg Brannon explains why this is “the 1770s all over again”

One of the candidates Glenn is most excited about this year is Dr. Greg Brannon, who is challenging Senator Kay Hagen (D-NC) in North Carolina. While Brannon polls well against Sen. Hagen, he has a tough primary battle to get through on May 6. On radio this morning, Brannon joined Glenn in studio to discuss his campaign and why he believes this is “the 1770s all over again.”

“We were just having a conversation before we went on the air that we've prayed for people to come and be a part of this revolution, if you will, and try to restore the Constitution,” Glenn said. “We've prayed for people like this. And now they're here. I think you're one of them, but now these people are rising up.”

Brannon, who is a father of seven and practicing OBGYN, and longtime listener of the program, explained that he has decided to give politics a shot because it is really now or never.

“My wife and I walked in the studio today, and you have a David and Goliath right there. And you said with five stones, David went after Goliath… He was prepared. This is what we're doing… We're taking our shot and we're going to win,” Brannon explained. This is really clear. I'm a believer. I have nobody on this earth to bow to other than my wife… It's exciting because what else do we have to pass onto our kids? We're going to pass onto your kids a less free America? There's no way. This is the 1770s all over again."

One of Glenn’s fears is that the collectivist mindset of the French Revolution has crept into the American mindset today. If we do in fact wake up, will the fight be for the principles our Founder’s fought for or a more socialized agenda?

“Our American revolution was completely different than the French revolution but the collective will is now coming over,” Brannon said. “The only legitimate role of the government is to protect the individuals' unalienable rights – pursuit of your dreams. The other week you were talking about: I want to live my life. We can't live our life because the government tentacles got involved… But it's us as individuals freely associating and linking arms that the establishment is fearful of.”

Glenn asked Brannon to run through his position on several topics, including Common Core. As the father of seven the husband of a public school teacher, his understands firsthand the dangers of the nationalized standards.

“I have teachers coming in every afternoon crying because of Common Core, crying because of those 20 tests a month… This is Woodrow Wilson's ultimate dream. He said we need two types of educators: We need the classical liberal education for the elites, and for everybody else the worker bee, the K-12, be the doctor, the lawyer, the plumber, the baker, and be part of society,” Brannon explained. “This is Plato's republic. You have the producers who are interchangeable and replaceable; the auxiliary; the military; and the guardians who are above them who are out make the law and live outside the law. That's not America.”

Brannon and his wife Jody will join Glenn on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program to further discuss his campaign. Glenn encouraged anyone in the audience – regardless of where you live – who believes Brannon can really make a difference to consider giving to his campaign.

“If Greg sounds like somebody you can support, go to GregBrannon.com,” Glenn said. “We're bringing Jody on because I want to spend some time with his wife and kind of talk to her and see what the real deal is and that's 5:00pm ET tonight on TheBlaze TV.”

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."
