'Now is the time to lead the conservative resurgence': Glenn talks to Mississippi Senate candidate Chris McDaniel

While some very strong candidates have emerged from the various primary races around the country, a Republican incumbent has yet to be unseated by a primary challenger. It appears as though that might change, however, in Mississippi where incumbent Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) is polling behind Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel (R). Cochran has been in office for a whopping four decades, and McDaniel is looking to breath fresh life into the seat. On radio this morning, McDaniel joined the program to discuss what his campaign is doing ahead of the June 3 primary.

The Mississippi Senate fight is being described as the “nastiest” race in the country. McDaniel’s campaign came under fire for the actions of a local blogger, Clayton Thomas Kelly, who was arrested after police said he entered a Madison, Mississippi nursing home to take a picture of Cochran's ailing wife without her consent. While the liberal media has accused Kelly of working with McDaniel’s camp, there is no affiliation between the two.

“Can you ask you about this video of Thad Cochran's wife in a nursing home that they're blaming on the Tea Party,” Glenn asked.

“I can give it a shot. There was a blogger down here that was acting pretty much by himself, and he apparently somehow how took a picture of Senator Cochran's wife,” McDaniel said. “That picture was then later it seems used as part of some video that he created, and they're of course trying to pin that on the Tea Party and others… We have absolutely no contact or knowledge of this guy whatsoever. We've condemned it completely and wholly. It's absolutely ridiculous that he was taking that type of action.”

Cochran was first elected to Congress when McDaniel was just a toddler, and he has proven to be a tried and true establishment Republican time and time again.

“He has a terrible record. Even the American Conservative Union gave him a D-minus during the Obama presidency and basically ranked him dead last among Republican senators – the most liberal Republican senator during the Obama presidency,” McDaniel explained. “I'll tell you, Glenn, if you can't take a stand against Barack Obama, that is truly unfortunate. No one in this state can name a single fight that Thad Cochran has led against Barack Obama. So his record is filled with liberal votes.”

McDaniel enjoys a slight lead in most polls, and Glenn asked him to describe the energy on the ground.

“We love it. The energy is incredible. We have literally thousands of volunteers. They're going door-to-door, making phone calls,” McDaniel said. “What's happening is the people of this state are waking up, and that's the key. Mississippi is one of the most conservative states in the entire republic. We need a senator that's going to fight as a conservative for Mississippi values.”

As Pat pointed out however, of the 139 incumbents of both parties who have faced primary challengers so far this year, all 139 have won. Pat asked McDaniel how he plans to overcome those odds in the waning days of the campaign.

“Mississippians are people of character, and we understand that it's time to fight. It's time to take this country back, and we can't do that by reaching across the aisle. We can't do that by compromising. We can't do that by back room deals. Right now is the time to lead the conservative resurgence,” McDaniel explained. “Mississippi is that fertile ground. Our people are strong. They're self-reliant. They believe in the things our Founders believed in, and they know how serious this election is. That's why we're going to win. This is one of those elections that sets a tone for the rest of the country.”

“If we can unseat a 42-year incumbent, then every one of those men and women will be sending a message. It's time to listen to the people for a change,” he continued. “And they haven't been looking to the people for a long, long time. We're going to change that on June 3rd.”

Glenn encouraged his listeners to consider donating or volunteering for McDaniel’s campaign regardless of what state they live in.

“I wish you all the luck in the world,” Glenn concluded. “This guy, he is winning in the polls, so this is just a show up thing. If you show up, you win.”

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
