The most frightening part of Obama’s State of the Union was…

There were a lot of issues with the State of the Union address. In fact, it took Glenn one whole hour on radio this morning just to get through the first half of his notes. But there was one theme in particular that Glenn found most offensive. Just a few weeks ago, President Obama promised to circumvent Congress with his phone and his pen, and he doubled down on that message last night. Clearly, the constitutional limitations on executive power are of no concern to him.

"The worst part of the speech last night – and the speech was horrific from start to finish – were the continual pronouncements that he fully intends to trash the Constitution of the United States to ignore Congress, the balance of power, and simply seize control and do whatever he wants to do," Glenn said on radio this morning. "Over and over again he looked the American people in the eye – a guy who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United State – and over and over again looking us in the eye, he said he would use his executive power to get his way. He bragged about it repeatedly."

Glenn believes this is a moment our grandchildren will look back on this moment as the beginning of an unprecedented power grab from the executive branch of government. And he encouraged his listeners to write in their journals what side of history they stand on.

"Write it down in your diaries and keep it for your children and your grandchildren because you're going to have to be an example for your grandchildren [so they will know] the true history. This is what really happened," Glenn said. "And I believe that every American should write in those diaries that this was the State of the Union where our President declared he would become America's first dictator."

This transition of power began in the early 20th century with President Woodrow Wilson, but Glenn believes it was completed last night. To make matters worse, President Obama announced his intention to marginalize the legislative branch while the lemmings in Congress thunderously applauded.

"The most chilling part of the speech – more terrifying than a president standing up and saying, ‘I'm just going to become an administrator. I'll just become a dictator’ – was that half of the Congress, who are about to lose their power… cheered him on like the lemmings that they are," Glenn concluded. "Like the Roman Senate and Caesar, they cheered him on."

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.
