Is your evil detector broken?

Below is a partial transcript of Glenn's opening monologue from Thursday's TV show:

I think some people’s evil detectors are completely broken. I don’t know if they were ever installed. What do you say you and I start exercising it, call evil by its name? Anybody, anybody who is working with the terrorists, wants to make sure that everybody who interviews them has to be wrapped up, you know, in the headdress because I’m going to have to stone you if you don’t, I think you’re evil.

Yeah, that seems to be the current way of this administration’s strategy is to partner with some of these people. It might be that we’re on the wrong side of history. From trying to woo dictators with love letters and radical extremists with cushy jobs in foundations of former presidents and even within the Department of Homeland Security itself, America is a disaster waiting to happen, and the world is already on fire.

Something when I was at Fox we were mocked for bringing up, Greece. Unemployment has ballooned now 27%. Police are now clashing with protesters over the murder of a 35-year-old rapper. Normally when we lose a rapper, I’m not like put it on the news, but this one was stabbed twice in the chest by a self-professed member of the Golden Dawn party. You remember them, evil, the new Nazi party in Greece.

For those who maybe are like well, I don’t know, were the Nazis that bad? Yes, evil. It’s so bad now in Greece that thousands are starting to flee to, get this, Turkey. Imagine things are so bad that you think Turkey is the place you ought to be. Turkey is now getting it from both sides, because hundreds of thousands of refugees are coming in from Syria and now from Greece, and the region is coming apart at the seams.

America, I told you earlier this week you’re not on the verge of losing your country. I think you have lost your country. And we have some things that I’m going to show you tonight that I think will show you that, you know, it still can be turned around. But we are on the brink of World War III. If nobody else in the media will tell you, well, tough luck.

I hope I’m wrong. Just pray and hope that this network, you know, five years from now, we can all go boy, were you a dummy. But let’s remember, three years ago I was on Fox telling you the same thing – maybe in five years we look at the Middle East, and it’s all great, and it’s Jeffersonian democracy, and we all have a laugh. But we’re not laughing now, are we?

We are technically already at war with China, Russia, and Iran. It is a proxy war through Syria. The United States is extraordinarily vulnerable in this proxy war. I don’t know if you saw For the Record last night. Please watch that. We have great producers that are putting together this incredible show once a week now. It happens on Wednesday nights.

Last night, we looked at the economic terrorism that struck us in 2008, and we’re only worse off now. What the Fed is doing is tanking the dollar. Instead of stopping quantitative easing, which is printing, digitizing money, they’ve “unexpectedly” – not so much if you understand evil – “unexpectedly” kept it going. It’s unsustainable to continue to print or digitize $1 trillion in cash every year, and any talk of recovery is a joke. This is all smoke and mirrors.

If you can’t reduce it by $5 billion a month, we don’t have an economy, and we’re in a lose-lose scenario. If you stop printing money, the house of cards falls down, and the IMF has said you destroy the whole world, so the whole world is angry at us. Two, if you continue printing money, you eventually collapse, and the whole world is mad at you, and we’re all poor.

The arrogance of the Fed is astonishing. They think they’re so smart that they can tinker with the system and make every problem go away. The Germans thought the same thing after World War I. So did Poland and Romania and Brazil in the 1990s and more recently, Zimbabwe. Just because we’re in the United States of America doesn’t make us immune to hyperinflation.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to me there any adults in the room who are willing to speak the truth to the American people, and the adults that are in the room don’t understand what truth is because their evil detector is broken. We’re going to find it hard to find an exit. I know I get made fun of for, you know, advising people to prepare, but you know, I don’t know how you can survey the news every day and not see any other possible solution other than buckle up, get ready.

It’s getting closer, but it’s going to be okay, because I truly believe that most people are good, and as long as we are good and know where the source of good comes from – evil comes from one place, good comes from another – we will survive. So it’s important that we build ourselves up, tell each other the truth of what’s really going on, but then also find the stories where people are doing the right thing and figure out what it is that makes these people special.

Why are they making a difference? From the six regular people who started the Colorado recall effort to the bikers who started a Facebook page which led to thousands of bikers descending on D.C., to the 19-year-old kid who confronted a thief at Dairy Queen that I’m going to tell you about a little later. I talked to this kid little earlier today, to the mom who turned in her 18-year-old son after she learned that he robbed an 85-year-old vet.

Rough waters are on the horizon. We have to realize that these things are coming, but we’ve seen them before, and we’ve survived. But we prepared, not just temporally, but spiritually as well. Focus on being a better person than you were today. Keep making a difference. Focus on God, because all the so-called leaders are focusing on things like being pen pals with dictators because they think they’re going to solve it. Trust me on this one, only God will solve these problems

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.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
