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.

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.
