'We are better than this': Listen to the robocall that targeted Democratic voters in Mississippi

A day removed from Senator Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) eleventh-hour victory over Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel (R), the questionable tactics employed by the GOP and Cochran campaign are coming to light. From the robocalls used to woo black voters to the future ramifications of winning an election because of Democratic voters, it looks like politicians and pundits alike are going to be analyzing this race for a long time. On radio this morning, Glenn couldn’t help but hope “we are better than this.”

“The story on how Thad Cochran beat Chris McDaniel in Mississippi is beginning to become much more disgusting than we even thought yesterday, and we're better than this,” Glenn said. “We are absolutely better than this.”

Glenn believes the situation in Mississippi proves a couple of things. For starters, you can never underestimate the desperateness of the establishment.

“First of all, never, ever underestimate what the GOP is willing to do,” Glenn said. “The GOP is willing to sell their soul to the devil. They are willing to do anything it takes to win. Don't ever underestimate anyone that's been in Congress or senate for 30 years. They have racked up all kinds of bonus points, all kinds of favors that they are due, and they will call them in.”

The Daily Caller has released the audio of a robocall seemingly aimed at potential Democratic voters that harshly criticizes the McDaniel campaign and the Tea Party. Because Mississippi has an open primary, the Cochran campaign actively courted predominantly black communities.

While it is unclear exactly who paid for the robocall campaign, it is believed to have come from a GOP affiliated PAC.

“So what did they just do? They said, 'This is a racist. This is a guy who doesn't like Barak Obama,’” Glenn explained. “That is the Republicans that paid for this. So don't talk to me about how much they don't agree with the President because they just got a bunch of people to vote, to make sure that Chris McDaniel didn't stop the President's agenda.”

In addition to the race baiting, the robocall focuses primarily on one thing: Free stuff. The New York Times spoke to a handful of voters in Mississippi who voted for Cochran and that message seemed to have resonated.

Hattiesburg resident Jeanie Munn told the Times she believes McDaniel “represents a threat to the state,” citing a vote he cast in the State Senate against a new nursing school building at the University of Southern Mississippi.

“Okay, so she voted because she wanted the free nursing school,” Glenn said.

The Times also cites Roger Smith, a black Democrat, who was apparently paid to campaign fir Cochran. “I don’t know too much about McDaniel,” he said, “other than what McDaniel’s saying: That he’s Tea Party, he’s against Obama, he don’t like black people.”

“That's your informed electorate,” Glenn quipped.

Based on the people quoted in the Times article, this was a common theme among voters in the state. Furthermore, an op-ed from the New York Times editorial board explains the “debt” Cochran now owes the people of Mississippi – i.e. the Democrats who put him over the top.

Ultimately, looking at the results of this particular race, Glenn now better understands what Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has been doing in recent weeks. While he believes it is a “dangerous game,” it may be the only way to curry the favor needed to rise up the ranks.

“I think this is why Rand Paul is playing the game that he's playing. I personally think it is a very dangerous game. I don't like the way Rand Paul is conducting himself in business… [but] I know why he is doing it,” Glenn concluded. “He's learned from his father: You can't go it alone. You have to have the party mechanics on your side. And if those people from the party are not on your side, you're decimated. And Chris McDaniel just saw this.”

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.
