Does Marco Rubio have a chance in 2016?

It looks like Ted Cruz won't be the sole contender for the GOP nomination for long. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) are both expected to announce their candidacy in the days ahead. Marco Rubio comes with a lot of questions. Does he lean more towards the establishment progressive wing of the party? Or is he a true, small government conservative?

The guys analyzed his potential candidacy on radio:

GLENN: So we were just talking about Rubio. Stu thinks that Rubio has a good chance of winning.

STU: I think he has a legitimate chance of being the Republican nominee.

GLENN: That's because he's Hispanic. He would have the establishment behind him. He has Romney behind him.

STU: He doesn't come off like Jeb Bush where the conservative establishment --

PAT: He's not necessarily repulsive.

STU: He's in the middle.

PAT: He said bad things on immigration and the NSA. But other than that, he's been good.

GLENN: Other than immigration and the NSA --

PAT: I know. That's why he's not my guy.

STU: The immigration one hurts him in the Republican primary. The NSA one, it could go either way honestly. That doesn't necessarily hurt him in the primary.

GLENN: That's amazing.

STU: He would say -- like, he would be the answer to Rand Paul on that particular issue maybe. He's more typical conservative when it comes to defense. However, look at this, he's a young guy. Good-looking guy. Hispanic descent. He's a very good -- again, he's a very good speaker. The guy is really good. He's a good communicator. He has --

PAT: Except for the water speech.

JEFFY: As long as he has enough water.

GLENN: How old is he?

PAT: Forty-two. Somewhere in there.

GLENN: He has lots of time.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Right. The theory is, he's going to run for only president if he announces because they can't run for both. He's even said on record, he thinks that's the right law. You can't run for two offices. So the theory is that he would run for president. If he loses, he would run for governor in Florida. Which is the job he kind of wants anyway if he's not president.

JEFFY: He'll win that.

STU: I think he would win that. I think that's a legitimate chance. It seems as if the Romney people, when Romney decided he wouldn't run, have gone towards Rubio.

GLENN: Which makes me -- that's Rubio repellant.

STU: It's not a positive point for me on Rubio. Money. Some establishment backing comes from that. And Rubio has a better record than Romney by a pretty significant margin.

GLENN: If you think I ran for president, Mitt Romney would be running my way?

STU: No.

GLENN: Do you think Ted Cruz -- he's not running to Ted Cruz. He's not running to Rand Paul. He's not running to Mike Lee.

STU: You're right.

GLENN: That says something.

STU: Romney was a guy who was very moderate who said he was now a conservative. He hadn't done a lot of conservative things --

GLENN: But he wasn't.

STU: Right. Exactly. Rubio has done a lot of conservative things, he just hasn't been perfect by any means. But he's better than the alternative when it comes to the establishment.

PAT: Jeb Bush for sure. Better than Chris Christie.

STU: When it comes Tea Party versus establishment, I think Rubio has the chance to be the, quote, unquote, establishment guy that might the corner between the two.

GLENN: Have we heard from Scott Walker's people yet?

STU: He's the other guy I think in that area.

GLENN: We've invited him on the show for, what, a month. We're calling them every day, and they just keep losing our phone number. There's something wrong with that. There's something wrong with that. You don't ignore this audience for this long. What is the deal with Scott Walker?

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.
