A 'New York liberal' talks to Glenn about a topic the mainstream media won't cover

Over the course of the last few months, Glenn has sat down with several individuals who could only be described as "strange bedfellows." On Thursday's Glenn Beck Program, the trend continued with self-described "New York liberal" and author Joy Brighton joining the program to discuss her new book Sharia-ism Is Here: The Battle to Control Women and Everyone Else. In the book, Brighton seeks to distinguish the religion of Islam from the politics of what she has termed “Sharia-ism.”

“I’m sitting with you because I wasn’t invited by CNN or MSNBC, because something about what I’m saying today, they don’t want said,” Brighton said. “Which is symptomatic [of] the problem.”

Brighton defines Sharia-ism as a “political movement to control," and she compared it to communism or fascism. While communism and fascism never took real hold in the United States, Brighton argues that Sharia-ism has because it operates under the “cover of religion” and an enormous number of “petrodollars.”

"What I do is pull it apart and say, okay, let’s put the religion over here… Islam is a religion… And let’s look at the politics over here," Brighton explained. "And when you start looking at the politics over here, you get a sense of what’s going on because there’s this new bully on the street. And this bully is walking around stepping on women’s rights and free speech. But every once in a while he mentions religion, and everybody backs away. So he’s getting a free pass to do all this because, well, you know, we don’t want to go there. And this is what’s going on."

According to estimates, hundreds of thousands of women in the U.S. have suffered female genital mutilation and forced marriages. Brighton said young women are being sent to countries like Pakistan and Sudan where they are forced to marry "some strange relative" and bring him back to the United States.

“Now she’s under the thumb of a Sharia-ist," Brighton said. "She doesn’t even experience Islam, the religion! She experiences control.”

While Glenn and Brighton might not see eye-to-eye on many things, he greatly admires her resolve and bravery.

"I will tell you, I think you’re an amazingly brave woman… I mean, good for you, good for you. Shame on CNN, shame on MSNBC, shame on anybody. This is honestly… the book that you have been looking for," Glenn concluded. "Strange bedfellows indeed. But yet, not so much."

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.
