'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.”

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

13. Alaska

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

A majority of the CEOs support AI regulation.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
