Georgia congressional candidate Barry Loudermilk explains why Americans "can't lose hope"

In an effort to highlight strong conservative candidates ahead of November’s midterm elections, Georgia Congressional candidate Barry Loudermilk joined Glenn on radio this morning to discuss his campaign. Loudermilk and Glenn share several mutual friends – including David Barton and General Jerry Boykin – and Glenn found many encouraging similarities between the men.

Loudermilk is running for Congress in Georgia’s 11th District. He was elected to the Georgia State Assembly 2004 and served as a communications operations specialist in the Air Force from 1984 to 1992.

“As I begin to look into you, you are the kind of guy that I think that we need more of,” Glenn said. “I don't know all of your policies, but I do want to talk to you about one thing. I'm really concerned about the direction of the right right now.”

“You are exactly right,” Loudermilk agreed. “I tell this to people, the greatest thing we are facing now is the Americans are beginning to lose hope. We can't lose hope. We can take this nation back. I know we can do it. There's never been a situation that Americans, when we pull ourselves together, can't overcome. That's what David Barton and you and I call ‘American exceptionalism.’ It is still alive. And we can turn that thing back around. We owe it to our children and grandchildren. We are not to that point of pulling out our guns and fighting. I mean that's the coward's way out.”

When you consider how polarized and bloated Washington, D.C. has become, Glenn questioned what it will take to turn this country around. Loudermilk believes that with the right leadership, who is willing limit the power of the government, things can turn around.

“First of all, we've got to have leadership and we have to have representation in Congress that understands the Constitution and understands that Congress is given the overwhelming authority in this nation. And they have given a lot of that away to the executive branch. They are not holding the executive branch accountable, not using the power of the Constitution to hold the president within the scope of his limited powers,” he said. “Look at the Constitution. It says all legislative power is given to Congress. It uses the word ‘all.’ And clearly, through the administrative state, the President overstepped those bounds. A lot of this action is being done through the executive branch, and we have to have strong leadership within Congress – leadership who is not afraid to make a stand, leadership who is willing to put things on the line.”

Glenn asked Loudermilk what current members of the House and Senate he most identifies with – the people he hopes to provide reinforcement for.

“I got to meet several folks that I greatly admire for different reasons. [Rep.] Louie Gohmert (R-TX) is one of those. For the courage to stand on the Constitution, you have [Rep.] Trey Gowdy (R-SC), doing some tremendous work. [Rep.] Jim Jordan (R-OH) is another one. [Rep.] Tom Graves (R-GA) is a close friend of mine I have known for many years,” Loudermilk said. “And you have to admire the courage of [Sens.] Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) and those guys who are holding the line. It's difficult to stand. I mean we live in a difficult time. And now is the time the patriots have to make courageous moves.”

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."
