NE senate candidate Ben Sasse talks about the importance of the grassroots in his campaign

Primary season is in full swing, and Glenn has spent the last several months highlighting some of the small government, liberty-minded candidates challenging big government Democrats and Republicans around the country. One such race is underway in Nebraska, where Ben Sasse is facing off against Nebraska state treasurer Shane Osborn in the May 13 primary to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE). On radio this morning, Sasse joined Glenn to discuss his campaign and what he hopes to accomplish in Washington D.C.

Glenn asked Sasse how he plans to fend off the likes of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) or Senator John McCain (R-AZ) or the other establishment GOP guys who are deeply entrenched in the Washington game. Sasse explained that he had an experience very early in his campaign that reaffirmed his promise and desire to stay principled.

“We had some lobbyists come to us in the beginning and say, ‘You seem like a nice guy. You same able and articulate, but we're going to be supporting your opponent in this race. And we're going to support him because he's been involved in state government before, and we understand he knows how to play ball. And you don't seem like a guy who would play ball,’” Sasse explained. “And my jaw sort of dropped. I had two meetings in a row, and lobbyists said the same thing: ‘You don't seem like a guy that will play ball.’ On that, the lobbyists and I agree. I'm not doing this job because of what lobbyists think.”

“The crisis is too many Republicans want Washington to be in charge, and I want local community to be in charge,” he continued. “I want entrepreneurs and families to be the center of American life. I want to grow the conservative movement, but I want to grow it based on articulating boldly what conservatives believe.”

Sasse went on to explain, however, that despite those encounters being incredibly disheartening, traveling around Nebraska and meeting the people has reaffirmed his commitment to serving.

“It [can be] incredibly disheartening,” Glenn said. “How did you get through that?”

“By just coming back and talking to Nebraskans again… The reason we're doing so well and there's so much grassroots momentum in this race is because people in my state, they are serious people,” Sasse said. “If you don't get your crops in on time in the spring, you are not going to get them out before the freeze in the fall and government can't just write a new rule to change that outcome. They believe in reality. And they believe we are on a path toward a Greek-style debt crisis. We just double down on what we believe, and Nebraskans are rallying around it.”

Glenn encouraged his listeners to do their homework, and if Sasse is a candidate they believe can effect real change in Washington, they should consider supporting him.

“Good luck there,” Glenn concluded. “We are really counting on you, and we are praying for you. Best of luck.”

It's amazing to see just how strongly many LGBT+ Americans are allied with Palestine in the Israel-Palestine conflict because the Palestinians aren't exactly pro-LGBTQ.

Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz decided to go into the West Bank to ask people on the streets of the Palestinian territories to explain their views firsthand. What he discovered was a shocking and even violent intolerance for the LGBT+ community.

Ami joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to share a sample of his eye-opening footage and the stunning reactions he received from pro-Palestinian (and vehemently anti-Isreal) LGBT+ Americans.

On direct orders from President Joe Biden, the Department of Homeland Security has released 79,652 migrants into the United States in just the last month after they were detained for illegally crossing the southern border. This brings the total number of illegals that have been caught and released into the United States on Biden's watch to 1.335 million people.

"At this pace, the ones that we catch and release — not the ones that we didn't catch — [will total] 3.5 million illegal immigrants in the United States in [Biden's] first term," said Glenn Beck on the radio program.


Biden’s border crisis is getting EVEN WORSE | #shortsyoutu.be

Perhaps these shocking statistics had something to do with the Biden administration's quiet approval of a plan to complete a portion of former President Donald Trump's border wall in southern Arizona.

On Thursday, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas authorized the completion of the U.S.- Mexico border wall in Arizona’s "Yuma Sector," despite Biden's oft-repeated promise that "not another foot" of Trump's wall would be constructed while he is president.

A Department of Homeland Security announcement cited "immediate life and safety risks" for migrants attempting to cross into the United States illegally as well as the first responders and agents working in the area "where there is a risk of drownings and injuries from falls."

Interestingly, mainstream media outlets seem to have suddenly seen the light when it comes to the actual function of a wall. Yes, walls provide security and help keep people safe. Biden's border walls "will better protect migrants who can get hurt slipping down a slope or drown walking through a low section of the Colorado River," according to NBC News.

But people on social media noticed more than a slight discrepancy in the way news about the border wall was framed under President Trump.

In 2020, NBC News said "President Trump's border wall endangered ecosystems and sacred sites." But on Friday, they said closing the gaps in the wall "won’t be much of a deterrent," according to Arizona environmentalist Myles Traphagen who has been "mapping ecological damage left by border wall construction" under former President Trump.

"Biden had pledged during his campaign to cease all future wall construction, but the administration later agreed to some barriers, citing safety," AP News reported.

"In addition to posing 'safety and life hazard risks for migrants,' the [D]epartment [of Homeland Security] said the gaps in the wall presented 'life and safety' risks to first responders in the area," reported CNN.

"Completion of the wall was at the top of former President Donald Trump’s agenda, and border security remains a potent issue for candidates of both parties going into this year’s primary elections. President Joe Biden halted new wall construction after he took office, but he has since made closing the gaps just south of Yuma a priority," said NBC News.

Earlier this week, CNN wrote an ugly, baseless trash piece titled “An 'imposter Christianity' is threatening American democracy” that argued American Christianity is being overrun by radical "white Christian nationalists" and supported that premise with far-left thinkers and biased New York Times best-sellers.

BlazeTV's Glenn Beck said the article was so bad, it made his "eyes bleed." So, on the radio program Thursday, Glenn debunked it all in an epic takedown of CNN's lies — and he brought all the facts from history that prove "everything CNN is contending here is wrong."

As many Americans fear a coming recession, the Biden administration has conveniently decided to say that we can't trust the conventional definition of "recession." Instead, we'll just have to wait until after the midterm elections to know for sure. But that's hardly the first time the left has redefined a word or phrase as part of its terrifyingly Orwellian "strategy" to control language for political purposes.

Glenn Beck posted a list of terms the left is redefining under President Joe Biden alone.

People also reminded Glenn of a few more redefined words or phrases to add to his list:


And don't forget Asian Murder Hornets and Monkeypox:


On the radio program, Glenn Beck ran through an extensive list of other simple terms the left is redefining to fit its narrative, just as the minions of Big Brother in George Orwell's "1984" used "newspeak" to further their totalitarian propaganda.
