'This is not a game. What is at stake is significant': Glenn talks to KY senate candidate Matt Bevin

The Republican primary in Kentucky is set for Tuesday, May 20, and on radio this morning, Matt Bevin, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), joined Glenn for an emotional interview in which he explained why he is running and the difference he hopes to make in Washington D.C.

“I will tell you, Matt, that I don't think – and Pat, correct me if I'm wrong – I don't think I've ever believed in a candidate more than you,” Glenn said. “I really don't think so.”

While Bevin remains down in the polls, his campaign is actually tracking much in the same way McConnell’s did when he first ran for office.

“He was actually – with less than three months to go – over 40% behind,” Bevin said of McConnell. “Kentuckians, we do not wear our sentiment politically on our sleeve. We don't spill our guts in polls. We go in the voting booth, and we know what needs to be done. We don't listen when they say, ‘Disregard that eye doctor from Bowling Green.’ We elect guys like Rand Paul. This is Kentucky, and we don't care what the echo chamber in Washington D.C., thinks or cares or talks about. This is something that we need to because it needs to be done.”

The establishment GOP has poured a lot of money into protecting McConnell, but Bevin encouraged those who are frustrated with the status quo to consider the alternative this election cycle.

“He is a fraud. And I'll tell you, the people, though, have a chance to do something about it,” Bevin said. “I'm begging your listeners and the people of Kentucky and across this country: If ever you have cared, care now. If ever you are going to rise up, rise up now. If ever you are going to write a check, write a check now. If you've ever worried about your country, worry now, because this is the absolute crossroads that we must make decisions today that are going to affect us for generations to come.”

It was after Glenn brought up Bevin’s family – his wife, Glenna, in particular – that the candidate got especially fired up.

“I'll tell you: This is not a game. What is at stake is significant. It is the future of this great nation,” Bevin said emphatically. “And the idea that we got here by accident, the idea that we just got here by coincidence, and the idea that we're going to stay here on auto pilot is a fool's notion. And we have got to take ownership. We've got to step up.”

Glenn encouraged his listeners to consider how they can get involved this election cycle because the candidates are truly worthy of our support.

“If you believe in Mitch McConnell, then go contribute to the GOP… But if you hear this guy and you want a different course, I would ask that you… contact [Bevin] through his website and find out how you can help. If you don't have any money, that's all right. We're all in different situations, but we all have a way to serve,” Glenn said. “I don't know if anybody else felt that, [but] when he stopped… that was one of the most powerful moments I have felt… There's something special about this guy… And I would urge you to do your own homework, and if you find him worthy, then support him in the ways that you can.”

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.
