Payback? Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza targeted by the Feds

The man behind the wildly successful anti-Obama documentary, 2016: Obama’s America, has been indicted in New York on charges he violated campaign finance laws. On Thursday, federal prosecutors announced the charges against conservative author and scholar Dinesh D’Souza.

According to TheBlaze, D’Souza will be arraigned Friday on charges he directed $20,000 in illegal contributions be made in the 2012 New York Senate race. The funds allegedly benefited Wendy Long, who unsuccessfully ran for Hillary Clinton’s United States Senate seat.

“Let's talk a little bit about the lead story on TheBlaze right now – the Dinesh D'Souza story. This story is sad. Really sad. I think Dinesh D'Souza is one of the smartest guys around… and was doing so much good,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “He was at King's College, and he was fired at King's College because he was having an affair. And once that happened, we thought, ‘Oh, boy, Dinesh’… [But] Dinesh went and he made the second biggest documentary film of all time.”

We first learned of the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups last spring, and since then the number of cases involving organizations and high profile conservatives being investigated or targeted has skyrocketed.

The Hollywood Reporter reports D’Souza found out he was being investigated by the feds in the mid-2013, months after his anti-Obama documentary earned roughly $33 million at the box office. Given the success of the film and its anti-Obama sentiment, one cannot help but speculate the documentary somehow played a role in this investigation and subsequent indictment.

“I think even before the IRS thing, a lot of us would have said, ‘I don't know if they really do that,’ [but] I mean we would suspect it,” Stu said. “But we know they do this now, and we know they use the apparatus to target people that they don't like. That's confirmed. So whether this is a case of it, we don't know yet.”

Sadly, Glenn doesn’t think it will much matter if D’Souza is found guilty or not because is career is most likely over either way.

“You know what? Even if it turns out not to be true… this country now can indict you – and will. They will indict you. Whether you're guilty or not, it doesn't really matter because your career is over,” Glenn concluded. “If they want to destroy you, they will get you on something. He was a target. I don't know about in this case, but if you're not clean and you're going after the people in power, you're done. You are done. Prayers with Dinesh.”

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.
