You might be surprised by who has been targeting Tea Party Senator Mike Lee

Glenn was in a bit of a mood this morning, making it a perfect time for Pat to bring up some news out of Utah that would turn his smoldering grumpiness into a full-on inferno. A local paper in Salt Lake City, Deseret News, decided to publish a thinly veiled and passive aggressive op-ed criticizing "strident partisans" and "ultra conservative special interest organizations" operating in Utah. Who were they really going after? Glenn explained on radio Monday.

"They are taking Mike Lee apart in Utah. And I'm sorry, I really don't understand how you can look at Mike Lee and say he's an extremist," Glenn said. "I don't know when it became radical, especially in places like Utah to stand for the Constitution of the United States, but if you don't stand with people like Mike Lee, who is decent, honorable, quiet, adjusted, willing to work with people -"

Pat and Glenn dissected the article, which was written as a point/counter-point between a Republican and Democrat centered on a recent study showing Utahans want Congress to work with President Obama.

"Both of them progressive," Glenn said.

The Republican, Frank Pignanelli, wrote:

Most Utahns are pleased that our congressional delegation occupies extremely powerful positions. But we are also a proud people … and hope our representatives do not upset this opportunity to solve some of the many problems with the federal government. As the Utah Policy poll demonstrates, we want solutions to immigration, national debt, Social Security and all the troubles plaguing the federal government. Sorry, guys — the pressure is on.

"Yes, we do. Yes, we do," Glenn said. "And progressives have not given us any solutions except pile -- by the way, the progressives have had control of the Congress pretty much without exception, since World War I. With the exception of the 1920s and Ronald Reagan.  Can you think of any other time?  Possibly, possibly JFK.  Other than that, it's been an open runway.  An open runway for progressive policies.  How much debt have we had?  How is that working out for us?"

Pignanelli continued:

Ultraconservative special-interest organizations — especially those from out-of-state — should read and heed this barometer of Utah emotions. We despise their ridiculous threats against our federal lawmakers to take positions and make statements contrary to how we conduct business. Further, stacks of analysis document how Utah conservatives are of a different flavor than right-wing purists in other states.

"Why don't they just send a message right to Matt Kibbe?  It's MattKibbe@freedomworks.org.  You don't have to make it so cryptic.  Just send him a letter," Glenn said. "They're talking about Freedom Works."

Glenn also interpreted "right-wing purists in other states" as representatives in Texas.

But Glenn didn't just stand up for Mike Lee from the attacks from the press. He also criticized his good friend Jon Huntsman, who recently called Lee an "embarrassment".

"If you think [Lee's] an extremist and you keep going to -- and, yes, I'll say it, you keep going to people like Jon Huntsman. You're in dire trouble because that stuff won't work. We've had that now for a hundred years. That doesn't work. You have to reattach yourself to the Constitution of the United States. That's not radical," Glenn said.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
