Is Rand Paul done?

On radio Monday, Glenn spent a few minutes contemplating out loud whether or not Senator Rand Paul has a chance of lasting much longer in the presidential race. While maintaining he likes Senator Paul and supports his run, Glenn told radio listeners he thinks the candidate has made two critical errors.

"I think he first got into bed with Mitch McConnell," Glenn said. "I think that's his biggest problem. I don't think anybody has really recovered from that."

The second thing, Glenn said, is how he came across to many people as "too angry" during the debates.

"I didn't think he came off as angry. A lot of people did," Glenn said. "But I am thinking that now, the way he's attacking Ted Cruz. What are you doing, man? Stop it. Stop it."

GLENN: I think Rand Paul is done.

PAT: I think so too. He is for me.

GLENN: I think he's done -- I don't know what happened --

PAT: I vacillated so wildly on him.

STU: Yes, you have.

PAT: But he attacked Cruz again.

GLENN: I know. This is really bothering me. I don't know what's happened to him. I don't know what's happened to him. But he's like -- what are you doing? Why are you shooting -- why are you shooting a guy who is part of the Freedom people? Why are you doing that? There's no other targets?

PAT: You know why he's doing it? I mean, it's pretty obvious. He considers Ted Cruz his biggest threat because Ted Cruz almost beat him at the Libertarian thing they just had over the weekend.

GLENN: I don't understand. Do I have this right? Because I saw that Rand Paul got 57 percent.

PAT: Yeah, and he got 51. I didn't understand that.

GLENN: Okay. That's doesn't work. Yeah, the math doesn't really work out. Like the third guy has 19 percent.

PAT: Your first or second choice, is that what it is?

STU: Maybe, yeah.

PAT: It might have been your first and second choices. So, anyway, Rand Paul got 57. Ted Cruz was second at 51 percent.

GLENN: That's enormous. This was a Libertarian poll.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: That happened over the weekend. This was the big Libertarian conference that happened. And for Ted Cruz to come within six --

PAT: Anywhere near him.

GLENN: Within six points of Rand Paul is phenomenal.

PAT: Huge. So I think that's troubling to him, and that's probably why he's lashing out at Ted Cruz.

GLENN: I think this is trouble. And I like Rand and I support Rand and I support his run. But I think he's made two critical errors. I think he first got into bed with Mitch McConnell.

PAT: That was huge too.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I think the story would have been entirely different had he not gotten into bed with Mitch McConnell.

STU: Yeah, I agree.

GLENN: So I think that's his biggest problem. I don't think anybody has really recovered from that. Because you're just like, I don't know who he is. And the second is, people thought he was too angry during the debates. I didn't think he came off as angry. A lot of people did. But I am thinking that now, the way he's attacking Ted Cruz. What are you doing, man? Stop it. Stop it.

STU: Because I want to believe in both Ted Cruz and Rand Paul and Bobby Jindal and all these guys, that if -- they don't see it as them. They see it as a bigger thing.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: I want Rand Paul to think, "If I can't win, I want Ted Cruz."

GLENN: Yes. But I don't think he does.

STU: And I want Ted Cruz to think the same.

GLENN: I don't think he does. And that's exactly what I want. I want the guys who I like, I want them all not to turn on each other. They can talk about the facts, but don't turn on each other. And then just say, "Look, if it's not me, that guy. I'll serve in the cabinet of that guy. I'll serve that guy. I don't care who it is." We all have to be on the same page. Because the enemies here in our own party are the big government progressives.

STU: Yeah, I want someone who is big enough of a person to, like, if they completely screw up More-On Trivia and criticize the commissioner and then are proven completely wrong when the football game is played, I want that person to step up and say what a disaster --

JEFFY: Thank you. Thank you.

GLENN: Pat, you should do that.

PAT: What happened with that, by the way? Was it right?

GLENN: It was right. We were right. We were sitting here saying to you, you know what I mean? Right, Stu?

PAT: No, I don't know what you mean.

JEFFY: What happened was --

GLENN: Let me tell you something, Jeffy said he wanted an apology from me this morning because I called him a fat bastard. And I want you to know, Jeffy, and I mean this in all sincerity, you being a fat bastard has nothing to do with you being commissioner of More-On Trivia. You will always be a fat bastard to me.

PAT: That's beautiful.

STU: That's nice.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
