Republican candidate Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina has become Congress' youngest Representative-elect in decades, and the first to be born in the 1990s.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck congratulated 25-year-old Cawthorn on his victory, but also issued a warning: Washington, D.C., has a real affinity for collecting souls. Stay strong, stay humble, know who you serve, and remember what you're fighting for.

"I'm not afraid of losing my soul just because I know who I am, and I've got a great base to rely on," Cawthorn told Glenn. "But, I do realize that there's a danger in Washington, D.C., so I'll be very cognizant of it. I have a great team around me, and I know that we'll be able to hopefully take the soul from Washington, D.C., because we need to re-put some morals, some values, and some freedom-loving fighters."

Cawthorn, who is paralyzed from the waist down from a near-fatal car accident in 2014, said he felt confident that he would be able to fight against corruption and stay true to his personal faith and values.

"My spine is reinforced with titanium, so I know it won't bend or break from the powers that be," he said. "The person that I am right now is completely indebted to the people I get to represent. And I think that's what we're missing in Washington, D.C. All these career politicians who believe in self-overservice, we have to fight against that."

"Are you concerned at all about the Republican Party?" Glenn asked. "I mean, the Republicans seemed a little quiet today. … I don't see anybody saying, 'We're here by your side, Mr. President.' [Trump] seems to be fighting alone."

"Well, I'll tell you, that's not true. I am right by the president's side. I think he's the best hope for our future," Cawthorn answered. "But I will tell you, I was not voting for President Trump when I voted on the Republican side of the ticket. I was voting for an ideology. I think that was what was on the ballot yesterday, was ideologies. One, it's going to say, 'you have to kneel to the state. You have to kneel to the mob.' They will tell you, when and where you can go to church, they'll tell you what your children can learn in school, they'll tell you if you can open your business or not. Or, on the side I like to vote on with President Trump, the person who I'm fighting in the trenches with right now, I genuinely believe that in that ideology we kneel only for our God, and stand for our flag."

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
