In the First Presidential Debate of Campaign 2020, Mike Pence Gets to Set the Stage

Excerpt from The Resurgent

By Erick Erickson

Mike Pence is, if nothing else, one of the most articulate defenders of conservatism in the United States. Tonight, he will take to the stage and be next to a man who claims a level of private conservatism. But Kaine is, publicly, a liberal. Pence is unapologetically conservative.

On the campaign trail, Pence has been shackled to Trump and overshadowed by Trump and forced to defend Trump’s follies. Tonight, though he has to defend Trump’s policies, he can also shine by repackaging and better articulating Trump’s policies.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn that it's now a proven fact that the Hillary Clinton campaign "concocted and financed the bogus Russian collusion story."

Glenn said this particular Clinton scandal is the "big one." So then, why is this getting so little coverage?

"We're living in a corrupt country," O'Reilly said. For the first time in American history, the corporate media has worked directly with a political party to win elections, he suggested. So, with that kind of power, what comes next?

Wokeness has taken over the American left — or at least the elite — and the corporate media is leading the charge. But the left's "Great Awokening" is actually fueling a great awakening of average liberals, including this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Newsweek deputy opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon joined Glenn after taking CNN's Brian Stelter to school about wokeness on his own show "Reliable Sources".

Batya reviewed the biggest takeaways from her new book, "Bad News: How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy," including how journalists have abandoned the working class, how she overcame Trump derangement syndrome, why the left hates conservative media, and why there's much more that unites us than divides us.

Bill O'Reilly says the biggest story of the week is the latest Biden vs. Trump feud, centering on the 'executive privilege' of former presidents. President Biden has threatened to write an order declaring Trump's executive privilege nonexistent, so the January 6th House panel can gain access to the former administration's documents and records. But an executive order from President Obama's time in office may get in the way. O'Reilly breaks down the whole story…

The World Economic Forum just held a 'Great Narrative' meeting in Dubai, led by WEF founder Klaus Schwab. And this 'Great Narrative' could give world elites even more power to further their 'Great Reset' agenda. During the meeting, they called for the creation of a 'story for the future' to lead 'humankind.' Not only is this 'freaking terrifying,' Glenn says, but it's the 'SCARIEST thing he's seen.'
