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.”

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.
