Glenn has a strong warning for anyone looking to Mike Huckabee for answers

Glenn has made no secret of his skepticism of Mike Huckabee. While presenting himself as a conservative, Huckabee has pushed for Common Core and big progressive government policies. But on radio this morning, a caller asked for Glenn to go in depth on his frustration with the former governor and cable news host. The answer?

"Mike Huckabee is a progressive from the get-go.  Anyone that is for the policies that the Obama administration had been for on even just the school lunches is a progressive.  Mike is a guy who believes the Constitution is great, but there are things that we have to do," Glenn said.

WATCH:

CALLER:  I have a question.  I have heard you several times make disparaging comments about Mike Huckabee.

GLENN:  Oh, no, no, no, I would never --

CALLER:  And he's not my guy.  Okay.

GLENN:  Hang on a second.

CALLER:  Can you be more specific, please?

GLENN:  Yes, I would not disparage Mike Huckabee.  I'll tell you the truth about Mike Huckabee.

Mike Huckabee is a progressive from the get-go.  Anyone that is for the policies that the Obama administration had been for on even just the school lunches is a progressive.  Mike is a guy who believes the Constitution is great, but there are things that we have to do.

And I could -- you know, we could -- we could, if I felt it was worth it, spend at least an hour --

STU:  Oh, we spent a lot more than that over the years on this.

GLENN:  Going through his policies.

PAT:  We have explained it.

GLENN:  Yeah, we have explained it.  I will tell you, however, that Mike Huckabee is not what he appears.  Mike Huckabee is one of the most disingenuous men I have ever, ever met.  And I have had several encounters with him and I know a lot of people really like him.  I am not one of them.  I think he's a very disingenuous man.  I think he's a political player, and I have less respect for people who invoke the name of God and then are politicians on top of it.  He's a politician from the get-go.

STU:  My favorite Mike Huckabee policy is the widespread release of dangerous criminals.  I think that's something we can really get on board with.

GLENN:  And why is that?  Why did he do that?

STU:  I believe everybody deserves a second chance, including rapists --

GLENN:  Because of his Christian faith.

STU:  His Christian faith, I guess, inspired that.

PAT:  How about the Common Core stand which is a reasoned policy of Mike Huckabee that everybody -- no, he doesn't support that anymore.  No.  What he supports is changing the name to something else, but keeping the policy into place.

GLENN:  No.  He is -- he is Jeb Bush hiding behind the cross.  He is.

STU:  Did you see -- did you see the letter that he wrote about Common Core?

GLENN:  No.

STU:  This is -- let me see if I can get it to load.

GLENN:  Wasn't he one of the architects?  Wasn't in charge of the governor's conference when this all started.  He was a big player.

STU:  Yeah.  Of course, obviously my computer is going into --

GLENN:  I will tell you that my dislike for him goes beyond his progressive -- he is a liar to your face.  He is a very disingenuous man.

STU:  Yeah, I can't speak -- I can only speak to the fact that his policies are a disaster for conservatives.

GLENN:  Yeah.

STU:  He speaks a game.

GLENN:  You were there.  You were there.

STU:  There's a lot --

GLENN:  You were there with me.

STU:  I don't think I was.

GLENN:  I think you were.  On a tarmac in Idaho.  Or, in --

STU:  I do remember the story, quite clearly.

GLENN:  -- in Iowa.

PAT:  He says that all the criticisms you might have about Common Core -- it says:  It's disturbing to me that there have been criticisms of these standards by other conservatives.  I've heard the arguments that these standards threaten local control of what's being taught in Oklahoma classrooms.

Speaking from one conservative to another, let me assure you, this simply is not true.  They're not something to be afraid of.  Indeed, they are something to embrace.

It goes on and on and says -- I can't find the exact quote that I was reading yesterday.  It was, you know, we must make sure that these standards don't go anywhere.

GLENN:  I can tell you that he is running interference, I believe, for the Republican party as well.  He's running interference for Ted Cruz to try to split the religious vote off of Ted Cruz.  I think that's what's happening.  Just as much as Mitt Romney is trying to run block and tackle for Jeb Bush.  Huckabee is running block and tackle for -- against Ted Cruz.  Being good little food shoulders.  I can guarantee you he doesn't like Ted Cruz's policy.  Guarantee it.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
