'Today is the day that you really need to get out and vote': Glenn discusses the upcoming Republican primaries

Today, voters head to the polls in North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana to cast their vote in the Republican primaries. Glenn has been particularly interested in the North Carolina Senate race involving Greg Brannon. After his first appearance on the Glenn Beck Radio Program in February, Glenn referred to Brannon has ‘the best candidate’ he has ever spoken to out of the gate. As the campaign season progressed, Glenn became more and more impressed with what he saw. Brannon’s main competition in today’s primary is the establishment-backed Thom Tillis, who is the speaker of the North Carolina House. Whoever makes it through the primary will square off against incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC).

“It is Election Day… and today is the day that you really need to get out and vote…. We've got to pick the best [candidates] we possibly can,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “In North Carolina, we like Greg Brannon. He's running against…Thom Tillis. You get to pick whoever you decide, but Tillis to the GOP candidate – the one that has all the [Karl] Rove money and everything else. If that's what North Carolinians want, that's what they'll get, but Brannon is this close.”

Interestingly, the polls consistently have Brannon beating Sen. Hagan in the general election, but he has not faired as well against Tillis in the primaries. The most recent poll results from Public Policy Polling (published May 5), however, show the momentum is with Brannon:

PPP's final poll of the North Carolina Republican Senate primary finds that Greg Brannon and Mark Harris are finally picking up some steam… Tillis leads right at the 40% mark needed to avoid a runoff, followed by Brannon at 28% and Harris at 15% with the other candidates combining for a total of 8%. 11% of voters remain undecided so that should give Tillis the breathing room needed to get over 40%, but it doesn't look as certain as it did a week ago… Brannon's support has increased 8 points in the final week of the campaign and Harris' has increased by 4 points.

“So here's the thing. All these guys are polling exactly the same way that Ted Cruz did. And I think part of that is people – are you going to answer a PPP call? ‘Hi, we are calling from the PPP poll.’ What are you going to say? I'm not even going to answer the phone. I don't want to share any of my views with anybody,” Glenn said. “I believe Ted Cruz, the day before the election, was 10 points down… [so] it is not impossible.”

Brannon enjoys the endorsement of FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) among others, and Glenn explained why does not take the endorsement of Sen. Lee lightly.

“We met Brannon and I think he's good. I think he knows the Constitution inside and out. He's been endorsed by Mike Lee. I mean Mike is excruciating when it comes to the Constitution… So when Mike says, ‘Yes, he knows the Constitution inside and out, and he will defend the Constitution,’ you have a guy that will defend the Constitution,” Glenn said. “I would like to send reinforcements for Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.”

“Today is the first of our opportunities to get somebody really good,” Pat concluded. “You have a shot to get Greg Brannon today in North Carolina. And then next week, Ben Sasse in Nebraska. And the following week, Matt Bevin in Kentucky.”

“If we could get one of those three, it would be remarkable,” Glenn said. “If we could get all three, it would be just phenomenal.”

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.
