Rush unloads on GOP in rare TV interview

These days, Rush Limbaugh rarely appears on TV for interviews, but he made an exception this week when he appeared on Fox News. During an interview with Greta Van Susteren, Rush lashed out at the GOP saying a “battle” for the Republican Party is underway between “mainstream” Republicans and true conservatives who rely on principle over politics. Meanwhile, he lambasted President Obama for “relishing the opportunity to put into play what the leftists have only dreamed about in faculty lounges for 50 to 75 years.”

Lead story up on TheBlaze is Limbaugh just ripping in to the president in a rare TV interview. He says he is ‘relishing in the opportunity to put into play what those in faculty lounges only dreamt about’ for years. And that's true, absolutely true,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “He also says that the media and those in Washington are doing everything they can to discredit those who identify with the Tea Party, and he specifically points out Ted Cruz as being a guy who has it going on, knows what's happening, and he says what people have to – listen to this, this is from Rush Limbaugh – ‘work within the Republican party to take it over.’”

Glenn admitted to not listening to much talk radio as of late, but he found himself overjoyed at the idea of Rush admitting to problems within the establishment GOP. “Never thought I would be able to say to you Rush Limbaugh said 'do everything you can to work within the Republican party to take it over,'” Glenn said. “Honestly, Rush was a little like Bill O'Reilly at times, where he had his blinders on, about five years ago, kind of going down that road. I thought he's kind of just going down and he's a Republican, but that's not who he is. Not at all. And he has come out strongly.”

Stu, who is more familiar with what Rush has been covering on his radio program, pointed out that both Rush and Glenn have been arguing for the importance of maintaining values for quite some time.

“I think the fundamental point you both make is the actual values – he's been talking about this a long time – conservative values,” Stu explained. “We talk about the libertarian leaning of it, but it's not about the politicians that fold all the time. Rush Limbaugh's been calling out people like John McCain for a long time.”

Sadly, much like Glenn, Rush rarely gets a fair shake from the mainstream media. Words will be taken out of context, mistakes will be exploited, and credit will rarely be given. Glenn encouraged his listeners, however, to continue to be vigilant and do their own homework.

“Do your homework, America. Be intelligent, be informed, and find out who is giving you the news. When you can watch the news and decode it, the whole world changes, but it is up to you to do it, because they are never going to report what Rush Limbaugh is actually saying,” Glenn said. “What Rush Limbaugh is actually saying is there are forces in the GOP world that want nothing more than to destroy anybody with an independent voice that stands for the Constitution and Tea Party.”

“It's interesting. It's a fascinating story on Rush Limbaugh today,” he concluded. “And Rush Limbaugh, I am proud, proud to be on Premier Radio Networks with you, and I am proud to be on talk radio, which you, sir, are responsible for and carried on to many AM radio stations, which you, sir, are responsible for keeping alive.”

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.
