Here’s the conversation the GOP needs to have

As the stats keep pouring in, one key factor is moving to the top of the list as the main culprit: the old guard running the campaign show for the GOP has got to go. Glenn read from great posts by Michael Walsh and Jennifer Rubin on radio today which lay out the new strategy the GOP must take.

"This is the conversation that I think we should be having but they will not have this one on Fox.  This is the conversation," Glenn said as he began to read from the articles. "You need a new strategy, gang.  You need a new strategy, and it ain't ‑‑ these clowns in Washington, these clowns in New York, the clowns that are all the operatives, they don't know ‑‑ they don't know anything.  And we've got to stop giving them power."

Rubin wrote:

No more 2004 Bush campaign veterans: What they know (polling, ad making) is wrong and what they don’t know (cable ad buying, new media) is too vast. A new crop of savvy, young campaign operatives who are culturally sophisticated and new media knowledgeable has to be groomed and culled so it can run a 21st century presidential campaign.

She later added:

The big GOP money should henceforth divert at least a tiny fraction of the dough it poured into Karl Rove’s useless American Crossroads super PAC and its ilk and establish its own, alternative media (not Fox News) that functions both as a sword and shield against the decaying, corrupt journalistic establishment. After all, the Republicans lost with the super PACS, and they can just as easily lose without them, and at a fraction of the cost. But they can’t win without a media operation that can neutralize the 15 to 20 points that MSM advocacy regularly contributes to the Democrats. The only way to beat the media is to replace the media — and if you don’t think the media won this election for Obama, you’re delusional.

"That is absolutely on the money," Glenn said. "And that is the only conversation that I have heard anywhere that is actually saying it."

Glenn is working hard right now to do exactly what Rubin is suggesting with TheBlaze.

"Now, here's what I asked you the other day after the election:  I'm going to start a 60 Minutes show.  We are going to do a 60 Minutes, but it is $4 to $5 million minimum to do that show every single year.  I'm going to start a Nightline show, but this one is going to be ‑‑ this one is going to be specifically on the Middle East and the Muslim Brotherhood and everything else.  This one is wildly, wildly politically incorrect," Glenn explained. " We have to double our subscriptions.  Every dime that we make we're pouring back into the product.  We have a lot of ground that has to be covered.  I need your help.  If you haven't subscribed, please subscribe."

Stu added, "This thing, you know, Glenn didn't start TheBlaze on November 7th, the day after the election:  "Holy crap, we better start a media organization."  This started years ago and the development started years ago and it's been built up slowly over the past couple of years as you've seen it.  But the reason is something that I mean, you just read it in that quote.  It's not obviously about the GOP but it's about conservative values, it's about the principles that we all share and it's about making sure that they get not some untrue spin room treatment but just a fair shot."

"You'll see we're changing a lot of stuff in the way we do because honestly I have a plan for 2016.  My plan was to have this thing up and running by 2016, really up and running.  Full you 24‑hour cable news channel by 2016 and then some.  I believe we have until 2013.  We have to do this by 2013 and we need your help.  Need your help.  So if you can subscribe, please do that.  Blaze.com/TV."

 

 

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
