What has happened to American's ability to endure?

Last night when he got into D.C. last night for his speech, Glenn saw two stories on TheBlaze that affected him deeply and brought to mind a conversation he had with his kids about the nature of endurance. In one story, a woman shot a man in what could have been self-defense, but then she ended up taking out her cell phone and taking a picture of the body before driving off. And then in another, a man was so fed up with his wife’s temper tantrums he decided to secretly videotape her with his cell phone. What is happening in America?

"Last night I saw on the front page of TheBlaze, I saw two stories that really impacted me in a way that I don't know if I've been impacted this way, this deeply before. There are two stories on the front page of TheBlaze," Glenn said.

"One is a woman at a gas station in Houston who has an argument with a man, they're not even sure if they knew each other. They're looking now for witnesses that were close to find out exactly what happened. But a woman is grabbed at a gas station and she kind of shakes him off and she goes in and she grabs a rifle and she points this rifle at this guy, and they're just talking. And nobody really knows what happened. And then she shoots him in the chest. He dies. She takes out her cellphone, takes a picture of his dead body, gets into her car and leaves. What the hell is that?"

Watch video of the incident below. The woman claims the man, Louis Daniel, was making unwanted sexual advances and she feared for her life. She did not wait for the police to arrive, according to TheBlaze:

"Then there was another story," Glenn said, "There's this woman in the car and the headline is Man uploads wife's tirade and files for divorce. And I'm ‑‑ I don't know why I even clicked on the story because it just doesn't even sound interesting."

"I click on it, and I start watching this woman," he continued, "and it's probably midnight and I click on the story and I just want to see what it is real quick, and this woman is sitting in a truck and the guy is filming her and they're driving. And she starts saying, take me to the lake. I want to go to the lake. I just want to go with a boat to the lake. Why? And he says, honey, I've got to take care of my truck. I've got to ‑‑ all I want to do today is I want to clean my truck and I've got to, I don't know, rotate the tires or something. 'It's always about you!'"

"And she just goes crazy. And she starts acting like a 2‑year‑old and it is so deeply disturbing because, quite honestly, it says something about parenting. We have parented people who aren't even able to function anymore in our society. We have parented a group," he said, "but some of us have parented, some of us are still parenting, but our parents so lost track of what's real. And I'm sorry, Little Miss Princess, but you don't always get your way. Life doesn't always work out the way you thought it would."

"Best thing that we ever did I think as a family for our older kids is we put values and principles on our chairs at our kitchen table, and there were about eight chairs at this table and each one, one said hope on the back, one said charity, one said honesty. And sometimes, you know, if one of the kids was having a bad day, you know, I'd say, 'You know what? You need to sit in the self‑control chair. You need to sit in the honesty chair.' And sometimes I would say it to myself: I need to sit in the honesty chair today. And there was one value that we wanted to put. We had the kids decide with us what are the values that are ‑‑ that we want, what are the ‑‑ what are the things that are important in life, and there was one and it was endurance. And my kids fought against it: 'Dad, you always make life sound like it's such a drudgery! No, endurance doesn't belong here!' And I said, yes, it does. 'Dad, man, you don't have to endure life.' Yes, you do."

"Much of your life, you will just have to get up in the day and endure until you can put your head on the pillow that night. Most of life is just endure 'til the end, just endure this. You think I ‑‑ and this wasn't popular. 'Do you think I wanted to go to all of your dance recitals? There were a lot of those things I just had to endure. And I did it with grace and a smile. I wanted to kill myself every time.' They're like, 'I've got another recital. I'm in a new play.' 'Oh, you've got to be kidding me. That's great.'"

"Endurance. Nobody can endure anymore. Everybody's special. Everybody gets their own way. Life has to be fair. Everybody has to have their portion. 'This is what I was promised.' You're not promised anything! Nothing! Forget about the government. If the government goes away tomorrow, who's making you promises?"

"Hutch said last night on TV, he said, 'Glenn, we just have to get people to ‑‑ just have to get people to realize that when they're hungry, I guess they will work.' He was making great points on we've got to cut welfare. We have to cut this giant state and we have to require people to work. And I got so frustrated, I said to him, 'Hutch, at what point do you think people are going to work?' 'Well, if they're hungry enough.' If they're hungry enough somebody is going to come and say, 'You know why you're hungry? Because those people over there, they have all your stuff and they don't want you to eat.' And they'll organize and they'll kill that person for that food! Our society has completely broken down. And if you don't see the handwriting on the wall, I ‑‑ it's probably because you're watching ‑‑ did you hear about the new prince that was born yesterday?"

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.
