Original story below:

Glenn broadcasted Friday’s radio program from Liberty University in Virginia because he was invited to speak the school’s convocation. He admitted he had written and re-written his speech several times over the last couple of days, and he ultimately decided to bring along a few historical artifacts from his collection to illustrate how times are changing.

“I got up this morning, and I thought, ‘Who am I to speak today,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But as I got here last night – and I brought a whole bunch of stuff to share with them – I kind of changed the direction this morning… But it is really pretty much the same conversation that I had with my daughter yesterday at lunch… I told her, you know, the seasons are changing, and we just have to know who we are. And we have to know who we serve. And we have to know who has the answers. And it's not the guys in the long robes.”

Glenn took that stage around 10:30am ET, and his radio program and TheBlaze TV carried a portion of the address. While video of the full speech will be available on GlennBeck.com later Friday afternoon, below is a highlight:

To begin, Glenn explained that Friday’s graduates are “entering a time unlike anything America or the world as ever seen. While the possibilities are truly endless, it will be more necessary than ever to enter the world firmly rooted in principle.

“The times are changing, and if we are going to rebuild our nation and keep people free, then we have to look at the source… And the more political answers that we try to find, the more lost in darkness we become. The more we try to find the answers through science, through technology, the more lost we become,” Glenn told the crowd. “The answers are quiet, the answers are simple. And the answers are here. I brought some things with me that I want to show you.”

Two of the things Glenn brought with him were the personal Bibles of King Louie XV of France and King George III of England. Both books were in pristine condition – as though they had never been opened.

“If you look through this, it is absolutely perfect. I don't think the pages were ever turned,” Glenn said. “What do your scriptures look like? Will someday somebody say, ‘This was my this is my sister's scriptures. Look, they are in perfect condition,’ or will they have been pored over, dog-eared, written in? That tells the story of your life and your path. This is what freed the world. And this came at a great price.”

The graduates at Liberty University today are entering a less than perfect world, and Glenn encouraged the young men and women gathered in the room to be prepared.

“I am asking you: What is it that you believe? Are you willing to give your life? It's real. This is not a textbook. Your classes are over. Life is about to begin. And it's real. What are you willing to do? What is it that means something to you,” Glenn asked. “Expect miracles in your lifetime. Live in such a way that you can demand miracles, expect miracles, call down miracles. And then when they happen, pronounce them, declare them, never be shy. No matter how small or how big, don't explain it away. That is the awesome power of Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

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.
