Comedian Louis C.K. takes to Twitter to lash out against Common Core

If past comments are any indication, “America’s undisputed king of comedy” Louis C.K. is certainly not a champion of conservative causes. But the comedian caused quite a stir on Twitter Monday when he seemingly came out against Common Core testing.

After garnering a tremendous amount of both positive and negative responses to his initial tweet, C.K. followed it up with a series of specific examples from his daughter’s homework:

Glenn and TheBlaze have been actively covering some of the problems surrounding the motives behind Common Core and the implementation of the standards for some time now, and Glenn has a book coming out next week on the topic, which he offered to send to C.K.

“Did you see what he said about Common Core,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “He's not conservative, [but] he was doing homework with his third grade child – and anybody who's done Common Core homework knows it is insane. It is absolutely insane… And he starts tweeting the truth.”

As Glenn explained, C.K. simply expressed frustration – the same frustration parents and teachers around the country are dealing with on a daily basis – in a very public way.

“His point is: None of these make any sense, and it is causing so much stress on the family and the teachers involved,” Glenn said. “The teachers are starting to come out… They're trying to ring the bell. Does anybody care? The good news is: Yes, but there's a lot of work that needs to be done.”

Glenn’s latest book Conform: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education will be released next Tuesday, May 6. But if you sign up for Glenn’s free email newsletter below, you will receive a promo code this week for 50% off the retail price.

“You need to know what Common Core is. Then you need an action plan. So the first step is Conform,” Glenn concluded. “Next is a massive national movement where you have a support team, so you can go into your local communities and make sure that it is stopped.”

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.
