'Today is the day that you really need to get out and vote': Glenn discusses the upcoming Republican primaries

Today, voters head to the polls in North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana to cast their vote in the Republican primaries. Glenn has been particularly interested in the North Carolina Senate race involving Greg Brannon. After his first appearance on the Glenn Beck Radio Program in February, Glenn referred to Brannon has ‘the best candidate’ he has ever spoken to out of the gate. As the campaign season progressed, Glenn became more and more impressed with what he saw. Brannon’s main competition in today’s primary is the establishment-backed Thom Tillis, who is the speaker of the North Carolina House. Whoever makes it through the primary will square off against incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC).

“It is Election Day… and today is the day that you really need to get out and vote…. We've got to pick the best [candidates] we possibly can,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “In North Carolina, we like Greg Brannon. He's running against…Thom Tillis. You get to pick whoever you decide, but Tillis to the GOP candidate – the one that has all the [Karl] Rove money and everything else. If that's what North Carolinians want, that's what they'll get, but Brannon is this close.”

Interestingly, the polls consistently have Brannon beating Sen. Hagan in the general election, but he has not faired as well against Tillis in the primaries. The most recent poll results from Public Policy Polling (published May 5), however, show the momentum is with Brannon:

PPP's final poll of the North Carolina Republican Senate primary finds that Greg Brannon and Mark Harris are finally picking up some steam… Tillis leads right at the 40% mark needed to avoid a runoff, followed by Brannon at 28% and Harris at 15% with the other candidates combining for a total of 8%. 11% of voters remain undecided so that should give Tillis the breathing room needed to get over 40%, but it doesn't look as certain as it did a week ago… Brannon's support has increased 8 points in the final week of the campaign and Harris' has increased by 4 points.

“So here's the thing. All these guys are polling exactly the same way that Ted Cruz did. And I think part of that is people – are you going to answer a PPP call? ‘Hi, we are calling from the PPP poll.’ What are you going to say? I'm not even going to answer the phone. I don't want to share any of my views with anybody,” Glenn said. “I believe Ted Cruz, the day before the election, was 10 points down… [so] it is not impossible.”

Brannon enjoys the endorsement of FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) among others, and Glenn explained why does not take the endorsement of Sen. Lee lightly.

“We met Brannon and I think he's good. I think he knows the Constitution inside and out. He's been endorsed by Mike Lee. I mean Mike is excruciating when it comes to the Constitution… So when Mike says, ‘Yes, he knows the Constitution inside and out, and he will defend the Constitution,’ you have a guy that will defend the Constitution,” Glenn said. “I would like to send reinforcements for Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.”

“Today is the first of our opportunities to get somebody really good,” Pat concluded. “You have a shot to get Greg Brannon today in North Carolina. And then next week, Ben Sasse in Nebraska. And the following week, Matt Bevin in Kentucky.”

“If we could get one of those three, it would be remarkable,” Glenn said. “If we could get all three, it would be just phenomenal.”

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
