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.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
