Bill Kristol still wrong as violence escalates in Egypt

More violence broke out in Egypt this week as at least 42 people have been confirmed dead after a bloody clash between the Egyptian military and supporters of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood regime. Both sides claim the other initiated the violence, but either way there is massive violence on the streets and it’s only getting worse.

TheBlaze.com is reporting that violence erupted between Egyptian security forces and supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi early Monday morning. There are conflicting reports coming from each side on the violence. Morsi supporters, who were holding a sit-in, content that the military fired the first shots, while the military says terrorist trying to storm the Republican Guard building fired first.

"What we do know is that Morsi’s supporters have been holding a vigil outside the Republican Guard headquarters in Cairo where it’s believed Morsi is being held by the military which detained him after ousting him from power on Wednesday.

The incident prompted the Freedom and Justice Party – the Muslim Brotherhood’s political arm – to call for “an uprising by the great people of Egypt against those trying to steal their revolution with tanks.” It’s urging the international community to intervene and “prevent a new Syria” scenario."

This morning on radio Glenn discussed the escalation in violence in the region (…and how confused Bill Krystol must be about the massive failure of the "peaceful revolution").

"Emergency services say more than 320 were wounded in the sharp escalation of Egypt's political crisis," Glenn explained. "Where's Bill Kristol when you need him?  Is this another Jeffersonion uprising? Did he dig Thomas Jefferson up and is he okay? That's what I want to know."

"I think Jefferson was one of the guys that climbed up that wall and threw Morsi opponents off that wall, killing them," Pat joked, referring to an alleged report that Islamists were throwing Morsi opponents off a high wall on the roof of a building and then beating them in the head with sticks.

"Also, Tahrir Square seems to be almost festive and protesters chant against the Islamic president who's overthrown in a video posted by the Muslim brotherhood and unidentified woman cries out as men attack her. The group from which former president Morsi hails claims the attack occurred in Tahrir square. Human rights watch reports a sharp rise in sexual assaults since earn Morsi protesters took to the streets in record numbers," Glenn continued.

In fact, there have reportedly been 100 rapes just last week — most of them gang rapes.

"The rights group says the latest attacks follow an all too familiar pattern since mass protests began.  Men force a girl or woman away from the people she's with, rip off her clothes and assault her.  Passersby join in on the attacks, which range from a groping to gang rape that have lasted more than an hour in the public square," Glenn said. "One woman said they made a more tight circle around me.  They started moving their hand all over my body, they violated every inch of my body.  So much traumatized I was only screening at the time.  I couldn't everyone speak, I cann't cry for help.  I was just screaming.  The only way these women can be rescued is by volunteer groups in women's organizations.  They ever an -- they have organized a system.  Once they are alerted they send in volunteers to take the women from the mob around, but uh notice there's no police action, nobody else doing this.  It's women."

Sadly, that's hardly shocking news in the Middle East, where in most countries woman are treated as second class citizens at best.

President Obama, who previously hadn't taken a stance, has come out in support of ousted President Morsi.

"He's standing firmly behind the Muslim brotherhood," Glenn said. "The people don't want it.  The people don't want him.  Why all of a sudden are you for the Muslim brotherhood?  I thought you were for a glorious revolution.  We'll let the people decide.  The people don't want it. Why are we back the Muslim brotherhood?  It's curious, isn't it? Everything that we said would happen has happened, except for the caliphate, but that's coming.  Everything we said, everything we said they would do."

In fact, what Glenn believed would happen during the first uprising appears to be happening now.

Do you remember when this first started, I didn't say that the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be it. I said it would be El Baradei.  Remember him?  I said this was a move from George Soros' international crisis group.  That's Samantha Power plays.  She is Cass Sunstein's wife, same up with the responsibility to protect, which is the reason why we went in to Egypt and Libya, and we had — we have a responsibility to protect, if there's human rights abuses going on," Glenn explained.

"Well, the international crisis group wanted El Baradei.  That's the guy that they wanted," Glenn continued. "Well, that's not the way it worked out."

Some are now claiming that one of the frontrunners will just go in a take power with the military — allegedly El Baradei.

"Now is anybody involved with Soros or the International Crisis Group, are they involved this time and are they working behind the scenes this time to get El Baradei?" Glenn asked.

After all, these are the groups that used social media to assist in the overthrow of former Egyptian leader, Mubarak.

Pat also pointed out that it is now against the law from Egypt to receive the $1.5 billion dollars in aide from the United States.

"There are two separate laws preventing it," Stu noted.

"But watch them do it anyway," Pat responded, noting that John Kerry already skirted the law and sent it this year.

Given the men and women occupying the White House claim to stand firmly against a so-called "war on women", one would think providing aide to a country that doesn't do anything to stop women from being raped in crowded streets in broad daylight would be out of the question. But apparently that's not the case.

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.
