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.”

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
