Winners and losers of Democratic presidential debate according to Glenn

WINNERS:

1. Martin O'Malley. He looked presidential. He was well prepped and articulate. He used the camera well and made connection with the viewer. He seemed like a left Progressive, but mainstream enough in his presentation to win the country. He could grab O'Malley-progressive Republicans.

2. (Tied with 1) Bernie Sanders. Line of the night, unfortunately, "We are tired of your emails." Notice where Republicans would have divided, he united! Also, I figured him out tonight. I understand his appeal. No one else can do what he has done, and the Republicans, by not understanding how he is connecting, could lose to him. It is more than his policies. In fact, his policies actually would prevent him from a win in the general, but only if others discover what his real strength is. (I want to refine my explanation and will present on radio.)

3. Anderson Cooper and CNN. Neither the network or Anderson pitched softballs. They did not play favorites nor did they hold back on a single candidate. While they didn't cover the things I would have, they covered many of them and hit them as hard as I would have. The real sign will be the number of calls Jeff Zucker gets from the campaigns tomorrow telling him they were unfair.

LOSERS:

1. Jim Webb. Stop the whining. He just didn't belong. He was at his best when you forgot he was part of the debate.

2. Lincoln Chaffee. He looked clueless and like a small town mayor. His answer on the bank bailout was perhaps the worst answer I have ever heard any candidate give. He too was at his best when he was neither seen nor heard.

3. Hillary Clinton. She reminded America why her campaign and the DNC is fighting so hard not to have debates. She looks like a slimy flip-flopping politician. She is utterly unlikable and untrustworthy. I hope she wins the nomination because, other than Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee, she is the easiest to beat.

The thing that I worry most about: The country.

The Republicans are engaged in a clown show much of the time. They, unlike the Democrats, spend most of their time fighting each other. They come off to the average person as angry, small-minded and insincere.

The Democrats are Socialists, corrupt and insincere.

The country is in real trouble.

Most Americans understand that.

Bernie Sanders is the only one coming to the table with ground-shaking ideas and those ideas are 100 years old and discredited. But the old saying: "we have to do something" comes to mind. To many, his ideas are new and he seems sincere.

Our education system is churning out people that have no idea how to engage in critical thinking, the media is in the bag for big government, big political parties and big corporations.

We as a people not only do not see the same solutions, we don't even agree on the same set of problems. From climate change to All Lives Matter. We no longer can even agree that American culture is unique and good.

We are headed for real trouble.

The next president is going to face titanic-size problems. Perhaps Lincoln-style problems. Who is big enough to unite us and lead us? Who has the moral authority?

We need real statesmen, big thinkers that understand the possibilities of the tech of tomorrow along with the hatred and bigotry on all sides (race to wealth) of today.

There is one key that pulls everyone together and only ONE candidate tonight talked about it and it is why he is drawing huge crowds.

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.
