March Madness: Glenn's insight into the 2011 NCAA Tournament

When you think excellence in sports commentary, you think Glenn Beck. Alongside such extraordinary sportscasters as Bob Costas, Bryant Gumbel, and Greg Gumbel, Beck is known for his ability to communicate the action on the court with a quick wit and a deep understanding of the fundamentals of the game. While Glenn doesn’t like to show off his sports commentary skills, he made an exception this morning on radio to talk about the BYU basketball team’s adherence to principles and values while maintaining success in the NCAA Tournament.

“If we want to talk about sports, may I just do one thing here and then we'll get into the real show.  BYU, if this isn't the blessings of living by higher standards, I mean, everybody thought they would be out including me, and I know nothing,” Glenn said of BYU’s success in the NCAA Tournament so far.

Pat made sure to interject, saying, “I'm helping with this story because it's a sports story.”

“ Brandon Davies who was kicked off because he was having sex with his girlfriend which is against the standards of the, obviously the church.  It's a church‑run school,” Glenn said.

“So they kicked him off and he was the star player and there's very few, maybe Liberty University would do the same thing.  Very few universities that would actually hold to those standards,” Glenn said.

“I'll bet you the alumni associations gave more money because of that decision,” Beck said, noting the importance of adhering to values to alumni of the school.

“It was amazing.  But I did see reports earlier on from media saying, why would you do that?” Glenn said.“Because there is something called standards.  It's not about the game.  It's how you play the game.”

“And he signed the standards.  He knew what he was getting into,” Stu said.

“All students.  Not just athletes but all students, you sign the honor code,” Pat added.

Despite his admiration for the team, Glenn admitted he wasn’t sure exactly where they were in the tournament. “I'm worried about the destruction of the planet.  I'm sorry I'm not up on the little basketball game,” he joked.

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.
