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.”

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
