Is #Thor2016 a Pipe Dream?

Is he in or is he out? Best-selling author Brad Thor has floated the idea of a third party candidacy (egged on by a few conservative radio voices). Could #Thor2016 happen? Thor joined The Glenn Beck Program on Thursday with an update.

"Brad, I wanted to get you on because Stu is very excited. He's had butterflies in his stomach all morning," Glenn said.

Could Brad Thor have been the candidate Glenn's co-host Stu envisioned for his recent #Bailout2016 plan?

"Well, I mean, I was very interested. We're talking about major developments in the presidential campaign," Stu replied. "The proposal is to go through deep red states that Donald Trump, you know, will have without even showing up and campaigning one time, and run someone who is actually conservative to give us a third option, should the vote go to the House."

Donald Trump is not likely to do well in deep red states. Utah is one of the target states where Trump is within a few percentage points of Hillary, and a conservative candidate should be beating Hillary by a landslide in Utah.

"I used to live in Utah. I lived in Utah for eight years. I love Utah. I would crush Donald Trump in the state of Utah," Thor said.

"So, Brad, I have to know this because you were online last night, and you were making a big deal about running for president. I have to know, are you serious or not?" Glenn asked.

Thor posted this interesting message to Facebook on Wednesday, with his first "campaign commercial," a remix of Ronald Reagan's 'Yes, We Can' speech.

"I listened to the show yesterday, when you had Erick Erickson on, and while I think Stu's idea is fantastic and doesn't take votes away from Trump and it actually takes certain states out of play, I don't think you'd ever get the Congress to vote for anyone other than Hillary or Clinton. You couldn't even get a roll call vote for the rules at the RNC convention. I don't think they would decide it based on who's the third-party candidate," Thor said.

Our cowardly Republican Congress would not likely vote for a third party candidate. So where does that leave Thor?

"Libertarians are on 36 of the 50 state ballots. They're working on the last remaining ones. If we're really looking for an alternative, there's a lot not to like about Gary Johnson, but we're not going to get the perfect candidate because I'm not running," Thor confirmed.

"Wow. So you are officially copping out after getting everybody excited last night?" Stu asked. "I think I actually took you seriously, Brad. Are you saying you're playing with our hearts?" Stu asked.

It turns out #Thor2016 was just a pipe dream.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
