Conservative Darryl Glenn Relentlessly Pursues US Senate Seat in Colorado

Darryl Glenn, a promising new face on the national political scene, is putting non-stop pressure on his Democratic opponent in Colorado. The 21-year veteran of the U.S military, with an MBA and law degree, joined The Glenn Beck Program on Friday to discuss his current bid for the U.S. Senate in Colorado.

GLENN: A candidate for the US Senate in Colorado, Darryl Glenn, how are you, sir?

DARRYL: Oh, I'm doing great. Thank you for having me on again.

GLENN: You bet. Tell me what the situation is in Colorado. First of all, can you tell me anything on the ground, what your gut says about Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump? Do you have any sense that those polls are real, are still shifting, what are your thoughts on that?

DARRYL: Well, I see a lot of momentum on the Republican side. I think that with all of the news that has been coming out with regard to everything with the investigation starting up again, it's really energized the base. I think if you're looking at our ballot return, you've definitely seen an up in Republicans turning in their ballot.

And when I'm out there personally walking precincts, you do still have a lot of people hanging on to their ballots that are personally planning on delivering them. Because there is some concerns about whether or not that their vote will be counted appropriately.

So we know that -- I think that things are going to be very surprising in Colorado. I can guarantee you, we're going to win this race.

GLENN: So, Darryl, let me ask you this, you're in Colorado, which I know places like Boulder, Colorado, are, you know, very, very lefty. And -- but there's also parts of Colorado that are very western in their -- in their approach, which leans constitutional and Libertarian. Not necessarily Republican.

When it comes to things like, you know, pot in Colorado -- and I know you're running for the US Senate. But when it comes to that, constitutionalists generally speaking, are like, "Well, I may not want it in my state, but if that's what the state of Colorado decides to do, constitutionally, they can do that."

Are you seeing that -- because as a constitutionalist, are you seeing that you can pick up any of these Libertarian kind of people that might be in Colorado?

DARRYL: Absolutely. And we are specifically targeting them. Because there are some disenfranchised Bernie Sanders voters. Young millennials. And we are specifically out there talking to them because they bring a lot of value. And they need to understand that the other side of the ticket, as far as the Democrats, are going to continue to infringe upon their freedoms and liberty. And that if you you truly want to have somebody to stand up there and fight, you need to go to ElectDarrylGlenn.com and back my candidacy. Because I do not -- I take an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, not to a party or not to a person. It's to understand that we are separate but equal branches of government. And that's what's been lacking, and that's what people are frustrating.

GLENN: It shows that Michael Bennet is still in the lead, but you're closing the gap quickly. He's the current senator. He is a far left Democrat. Big supporter of Hillary Clinton. Thinks that Obamacare is a good thing.

What are the premiums up in Colorado?

DARRYL: Well, you're looking at people, especially in -- I'll just kind of give you a sense in our western slope, there are 14 counties that are down to one insurance provider. You're looking at premium increases that are ranging between 20 to 40 percent.

I know of one individual business owner where their premiums have gone from 60,000, and it's projected to go to 50,000. But yet Michael Bennet is still out there supporting the Affordable Care Act. And this is why we are highlighting that fact, that, that, on top of his support for the Iran nuclear deal, are reasons why he should lose his job. That's why people are flocking to ElectDarrylGlenn.com.

GLENN: They're flocking to -- what was the name of that website again?

(chuckling)

DARRYL: ElectDarrylGlenn.com.

GLENN: Okay. I didn't know if I heard you right. ElectDarrylGlenn.com.

PAT: ElectDarrylGlenn.com.

GLENN: Michael Bennet was in a debate with you. And I find this astounding. He's made it all the way to the US Senate without knowing a couple of terms, one of them is open borders, the other is open trade. I want to play this.

VOICE: Open borders.

MICHAEL: Huh? I don't know what -- I don't know what that means in -- if you can define it for me, I would be happy to answer it --

PAT: What?

VOICE: It was her -- quote, that her dream is in the hemisphere open borders and open trade.

MICHAEL: I don't know what that means, but as part of the Gang of Eight --

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: What's going on, Darryl?

PAT: Wow.

DARRYL: Well, you have to remember that Michael Bennet graduated from Yale Law School. And that just shows you that -- you know, if I was Yale, I would say, "Look, you're not representing the institution very well."

PAT: That's for sure.

DARRYL: And what he's doing is what he traditionally does, is he hides. He doesn't want to take a position. And I tell people, "We need to just talk straight." The average person knows what the definition of what open borders is. And you should be able to talk about that. But what he doesn't want to acknowledge is the fact that he supports the Barack Obama administration. And if Hillary Clinton is in office, he's going to do the exact same thing.

PAT: Wow.

Now, what are the odds that people will be too stoned to get to the polls on Tuesday? Is that possible? You know, they got such a case of the munchies that they're too busy buying Doritos and Cheez-Its. Is that possible?

DARRYL: No, I don't think that's possible.

PAT: No?

GLENN: All right.

PAT: Good.

GLENN: That was, Pat, by the way, Darryl. I just want to make sure you understand. That was Pat.

DARRYL: Yeah. I understand that.

PAT: Well, it is legal.

And what is your stand on the marijuana situation in -- in Colorado? Is that going well, or would you repeal that if you could?

DARRYL: Well, it has some unintended consequences. And what I'm saying is the current position that we're in doesn't represent either side very well. You know, you need to stand up for state's rights. But right now, the federal government can pick and choose when they want to enforce the standard.

And when you're dealing with, like with Colorado, we have a lot of military installations and you have to follow federal law there, it becomes problematic.

And I can tell you specifically as the county commissioner responsible for funding, you know, organizations like our sheriff's department, we're having some unintended consequences because what you're seeing is a rise in property crime. A rise in heroin usage. So there's still a lot of work that needs to be done. But the current position right now of doing nothing is hurting people. Go in there and investigate whether or not it should be reclassified, as it should.

Then you can then put it into the pharmacy. Then that clears some of the public safety concerns. But the bottom line is you got to stand up for state's rights. And that's what we're going to do.

GLENN: Darryl Glenn, running for Senate in Colorado. Mike Lee is a huge supporter of Darryl. Ted Cruz is also a big supporter of Darryl.

Darryl Glenn. ElectDarrylGlenn.com. Elect Darryl Glenn. That's with two N's.com. In Colorado. And he needs your help, to -- I would imagine some extra funding would be helpful or even people willing to go out and knock on doors this weekend. And help put another constitutionalist in the Senate of the United States.

Darryl, I appreciate it. Thank you so much.

PAT: Good luck.

DARRYL: Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. Thank you.

GLENN: You bet.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
