Glenn: We are not the extreme right - we are the common sense center of this country

Dave Brat’s convincing victory over Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) marked the first time a House Majority Leader has been defeated in a primary. While Brat remains relatively unknown in mainstream media and establishment circles, it didn’t take long for the smears to begin. Brat, an economics professor, is already being painted as a right wing extremist, but on radio this morning, Glenn explained why Brat’s victory actually represents a return to the “common sense center of this country.”

“Last night and this morning, they were all talking about the extreme right taking over. This is the Virginia loss of Eric Cantor,” Glenn said. “Now, let's just define ‘extremism’ because Nancy Pelosi immediately came out and said… 'The extreme right is trying to take over the Republican Party.' I am so sick of this… We are not the extreme right.”

So what constitutes an extremist in the United States?

“The extremist is someone who takes power away from the people,” Glenn said emphatically. “Here in America, the extremist is the one who says, ‘You don't have a right to do that’… Anybody who is taking power, usurping the power of the people; anybody who is trying to go around the Constitution, going around the three branches of government; anybody who is not living or enforcing the laws of the United States of America… Let's be very clear: That's the extremist.”

When you look at some of the biggest issues of the day – immigration reform, Common Core, the VA – the common sense solution is the one being discussed by the so-called extremist right.

“Who is stopping Common Core? Is it the extreme right? The extreme left? No,” Glenn said. “It is the common sense people right in the center that says this is wrong. This is a power grab in America – not Europe – but in America.”

“Common sense says let's take care of the veterans first,” he continued. “What happened to the liberals who used to say, ‘Let's take care of our own self first, our own schools first, take care of our own cities that are crumbling first? What happened to you guys? Because common sense says: Yes, let's take care of our own first – especially our veterans.”

With that in mind, Brat’s victory in Virginia on Tuesday represents the people’s desire to see the power returned to the people. While Cantor personified the ultimate Washington insider, Brat ran on a platform based on Constitutional principle.

“David Brat is a return to common sense. Dave Brat is a return to listening to the people,” Glenn said. “Dave Brat is one that says, ‘Let's stop spending so much money.’ Dave Brat is a guy saying, ‘We can't have a president… that just makes up the rules.’”

Glenn explained that common sense Americans on both the left and right are craving a return to responsibility and accountability that simply no longer exists in the world today.

“What is it that is making the average American, both left and right upset? Both left and right are upset at something going wrong and no one taking responsibility,” Glenn said. “That's the whole problem. We don't love people anymore. We love things… People are a means to the ends of the things. That's the whole problem. We have too many things. We love too many things. That's it. We need to start loving people again.”

Glenn warned that the true extremists in Washington will begin to reveal themselves – specifically in regards to the ever-growing immigration debate – as they attempt to cling to power.

“What they are going to try to do again is – when it comes to immigration – they will use those people on the border to keep positions of power for them. That's it,” Glenn concluded. “They will use anybody, any time, any plight, any emergency, anything that will pull on your heartstrings, that's an extremist. That's an extremist. This is a return to common sense, and God help us, common decency.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
