How does conservative Scott Walker win over and over in one of the most progressive states?

Glenn’s been waiting to talk to Scott Walker for weeks now. The Wisconsin Governor routinely comes out near the top of our audience poll of prospective GOP nominees. But who is he? What does he believe? What are his policies? And does he have any intention of running? Glenn spoke with Scott Walker on Monday's radio show to get some of these answers.

Despite Wisconsin being the cradle of progressivism, Walker has been able to make a lot of accomplishments in the advancement of small government.

"Madison, Wisconsin, which is headed to the left of Pravda, for many out there, it is the home of progressive movement. Collective bargaining was started there," Walker said. "Who would have thought that in that city, in the state of Wisconsin, that hasn't had a Republican for president since 1984, we would be able to take on, four years ago, the Public Employee Union. And not only win that battle, win the recalls against a whole bunch of state senators. Win a recall against me and the lieutenant governor in the state. But now Wisconsin when it comes to public employee unions, we have no seniority or tenure. We can hire and fire based on merit. We can pay based on performance. We're the 25th state in the nation that have a right to work. We have photo ID requirements for voting. We deported Planned Parenthood and the pro-life legislation."

"We cut taxes by $2 billion. Property taxes were lower today than they were four years ago. Who would have thought that would happen? But we said shortly after the 2010 election, we had to go big and we had to go bold. It was put-up-or-shut-up time. And even in Madison, Wisconsin, we were able to get that done."

"What is the secret?" Glenn asked.

"The interesting thing is, to win the center, you don't have to move to the center of the issues, you have to lead. You have to clearly spell out what you're going to do. Tell the people what you'll do, and then do it. And a lot of times in politics, people think to win the middle, to win independents, sort of, independents are squishy or moderate. No, most independents have just been burned many times before. They're not willing to commit to a party because they're frustrated with being told one thing and then people doing another. If you lead, you don't have to be with an independent on every single issue. You just have to look them in the eye and tell them exactly what you'll do. Sometimes that means telling them something that they don't necessarily agree with. But they'll know on all the other issues, that you'll stand firm, when they do care about them."

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

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?
