This One Thing Could Convince Author Brad Thor to Abandon #NeverTrump

Ted Cruz's defeat on Tuesday may have pulled the plug for some in the #NeverTrump movement, but not for Brad Thor. The New York Times best-selling author joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to provide some clarification on the meaning of the word "never."

"I was reading a story in the Huffington Post today, where they said the #NeverTrump people have to decide what #NeverTrump means. So we thought you would be the guy to answer that," Glenn said.

This question was clearly right up Thor's ally.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

"Far be it from me as an author to lay out the meaning of words, but perhaps the hashtag should be #NeverEverTrump," Thor said. "I mean, it can't be more clear than that. Never --- you know, this is coming from the left. I thought ‘no' meant ‘no' to the left. Does ‘never' not mean 'never'"?

Glenn pointed out many people are arguing a vote against Trump is a vote for Hillary.

"Right --- and no to Hitler was yes to Stalin. So I got that, I got that," Thor replied. "I think you can be anti-Hillary and anti-Trump. You can be pro-liberty, pro-Constitution."

With that said, the thriller-writer admitted there actually was one way Trump could earn his vote --- but don't hold your breath --- it was a big ask.

"There's only one way that I will move out of the #NeverTrump camp," Thor said. "That only one way is that if there's the greatest check put on Donald Trump's power possible --- and that would be to put Ted Cruz into Scalia's seat at the Supreme Court."

Co-host Stu Burguiere didn't see that happening.

"He's going to put in someone that he can make --- he can have them rule and make the Supreme Court great again. And whatever that means is, it means agreeing with Donald Trump," Stu said.

As anti-Trump as Thor is, he made an impassioned plea to all those listening to pray for Trump, his family and those protecting them.

"I want to right now ask everyone who is listening to pray for the men and women of the Secret Service who are charged with protecting Donald Trump and his family. I think we will see unprecedented assassination attempts on Donald Trump," Thor said.

"I think the left will so vilify and demonize him with the media --- I'm betting that they are going to be attempts on his life. I pray to God that it doesn't happen, but the way this country is right now, I don't know how it doesn't happen."

Glenn has been observing the Secret Service for most of the Obama administration's term, so this fear wasn't surprising.

"I hope not. But quite honestly, I don't trust the Secret Service," Glenn said. "They're so sloppy. There's got to be Secret Service agents that are like, ‘Guys, we are a mess right now. We've got to fix this before something happens.'"

If there is any good news in this insane election cycle, it's that there has been a separation of who's really in it for the right reasons.

"We've now seen who really stands with liberty, who is a constitutionalist and who is in this just for their own," Thor said. "I'm sure that like me, you could have held onto a lot more customers, a lot more listeners. I could have held onto a lot more readers if I'd just played it right down the middle or thrown my arms around Trump."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
