"The 4th Hour" looks at 2012 GOP candidates

Glenn doesn’t like to talk too much about specific candidates, but on today’s “4th Hour” Pat and Stu decided to do a little analysis of the 2012 GOP field. What do they think?

Tim Pawlenty

Pawlenty announced his exploratory committee yesterday, so Pat and Stu started off with him. While Stu seemed open to a Pawlenty run, Pat said – without going into details – that Pawlenty stuck him as having an air of “liberalism” about him.

Mitt Romney

Both Pat and Stu said that Romney would have to explain the Massachusetts healthcare law before they would consider him as a candidate. Stu also pointed out it may be a little too late.

Rick Santorum

Tied with Allen West as Pat’s number one pick right now, but Stu isn’t so sure that he’s going to run. He might be waiting to see who could emerge as a candidate.

Allenn West

Tied with Rick Santorum for number one pick with Pat. Stu cautioned that he hasn’t been in office long enough and we don’t really know who he is. Pat argued, “Is it too early? No! I’m desperate!” Stu later did say West’s military experience does make him more appealing than most political unknowns.

Rand Paul

Stu said that he had heard that Rand Paul would not run against his father. Does this mean that he would run if his dad didn’t? Either way, Stu pointed out that, while he likes Rand Paul, a few weeks ago he was a doctor and that we may now know about him at this point.

Chris Chritsie

Pat said the “shine was going away” for Pat on Chris Christie as he learns more about his views, specifically on climate change. Stu, again, felt it was too soon to tell.

As Stu wrapped up the segment, he pointed out that right now everyone is just desperate for someone else. In the hilarious clip at the top of this article, he likens Americans as being stuck with the ugliest girl at the bar, and are now kind of looking around to see better options. At first glance, some of the candidates look good, but upon closer inspection we may find out we are wearing beer goggles. “You don’t ask the girl to marry you at the bar,” he warned.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
