Georgia congressional candidate: Russia/Ukraine conflict could become an ‘international catastrophe’

On Tuesday, Georgia Republicans in the state’s 11th Congressional District will head to the polls to vote in the runoff election between conservative former state senator Barry Loudermilk and incumbent Congressman Bob Barr (R-GA). Loudermilk enjoys the support of David Barton and General Jerry Boykin among others, and he spoke to Glenn on radio this morning about the current conflict in Ukraine and the upcoming election.

Loudermilk spent time in Ukraine in 2003, teaching American history via a program with the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. The hope was to prepare the next generation of Ukrainian children to be dedicated to the path of liberty and freedom by familiarizing them with the United States’ independence.

“It was incredible. But the most incredible thing that happened to me – after I was teaching on Thanksgiving Day in 2003 about American history, the founding of America, I was having dinner with some government officials,” Loudermilk said. “One of them kept asking me more and more questions about the founding of America. And I finally asked him, ‘Why are you so interested in American history?’ And, Glenn, what he said changed my life because he said, ‘We want to become what you were.’ What you were.”

The verb tense of the statement the Ukrainian official uttered is what struck Loudermilk most. Given the Obama Administration’s lackadaisical response to the current Russia/Ukraine conflict, Glenn asked Loudermilk what we should be most aware of and concerned about.

“This has the potential to be an international catastrophe,” Loudermilk said, “especially with our ally Ukraine already fighting Russian forces that are insurgents operating within the border of Ukraine.”

In the aftermath of the crash of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on Thursday, Loudermilk spoke to a friend of his who is very involved in the nationalist fight in Ukraine. While the conditions on the ground are difficult, the Ukrainian people have not lost hope.

“I contacted, via Skype, a friend of mine who is in Kiev, and he's one of the nationalists there,” he explained. “He told me yesterday, ‘Barry, the people are… taking their vacation time to go volunteer with the national defense battalions to defend their homeland.’ They're taking their vacation time, Glenn, to go defend their nation! [The U.S.] can't even get people to… take an hour off of lunch to go to the polls. We can learn from Ukraine going forward.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
