Matt Bevin: There is a "hunger for change" in Kentucky

On the heels of Ben Sasse’s big win in the Nebraska Republican primary on Tuesday, Glenn is hopeful the momentum will carry over to next Tuesday’s Kentucky primary in which Matt Bevin faces off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). On radio this morning, Bevin joined Glenn to discuss the waning days of his campaign and why he remains encouraged despite the poll numbers.

Bevin has been on the campaign trail for a number of months now, and Glenn asked him what the feeling on the ground has been.

“Frankly, we are very apathetic as a nation. Certainly, I don't think Kentucky is unique, but there are many people who are frustrated, who think we must do better, something has to change, but they don't feel it's within their power or responsibility to step up and be that change. It's disheartening,” Bevin said. “That said, last night I spoke to a group of 250, 300 people. There was a GOP gathering, and it was one where it was not the most hospitable crowd, but boy, we moved some people… So the groundswell of hunger for change is there, at every turn. We got a huge ovation from people when I was done speaking and not because it's brilliant. It's because it's real and resonates with people.”

Glenn explained that he used to have a good deal of “real respect” for McConnell because he considered him to be “one of the good guys.” But much in the way many long-term incumbents have turned into huge disappointments, McConnell suffered the same fate.

“It's really funny, because I used to have real respect for Mitch McConnell. I really did. I thought Mitch McConnell was one of the good guys years ago,” Glenn said. “If you are there too long, it just wears you down until you are just part of the system. And it's dangerous.”

“Term limits is what we need,” Bevin responded. “It will happen to any man. There's nobody who goes to that town and doesn't change… Yet those who change don't recognize it in themselves. We need congressional level term limits.”

Ultimately, Bevin asked those listening to remain informed and ensure they understand what is at stake before heading to the ballot box.

“I charge your listeners: America is great, and we will not stay great if people don't take ownership,” Bevin concluded. “I am just begging people, be engaged, step out there, make sure you are voting in an informed fashion, because this is the greatest nation on earth. And if the American people lose this experiment, if we lose the control of our government, which is quickly happening, then we have lost, and the world has lost a least great beacon of hope. We can't allow this to happen on our watch.”

“Thank you very much, Matt. We'll talk to you next week. It’s MattBevin.com - endorsed by FreedomWorks, endorsed by Kentuckians Against Common Core. Heidi Huber, who heads up Ohioans Against Common Core, also big with Matt Bevin,” Glenn concluded. “This is an important one. This is a game-changing election. And that's why the GOP has spent so much time and so much money trying to dismantle this guy because this one is truly game changing… Keep him in your prayers this weekend. It's something that can still happen.”

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.
