'This is not a game. What is at stake is significant': Glenn talks to KY senate candidate Matt Bevin

The Republican primary in Kentucky is set for Tuesday, May 20, and on radio this morning, Matt Bevin, who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), joined Glenn for an emotional interview in which he explained why he is running and the difference he hopes to make in Washington D.C.

“I will tell you, Matt, that I don't think – and Pat, correct me if I'm wrong – I don't think I've ever believed in a candidate more than you,” Glenn said. “I really don't think so.”

While Bevin remains down in the polls, his campaign is actually tracking much in the same way McConnell’s did when he first ran for office.

“He was actually – with less than three months to go – over 40% behind,” Bevin said of McConnell. “Kentuckians, we do not wear our sentiment politically on our sleeve. We don't spill our guts in polls. We go in the voting booth, and we know what needs to be done. We don't listen when they say, ‘Disregard that eye doctor from Bowling Green.’ We elect guys like Rand Paul. This is Kentucky, and we don't care what the echo chamber in Washington D.C., thinks or cares or talks about. This is something that we need to because it needs to be done.”

The establishment GOP has poured a lot of money into protecting McConnell, but Bevin encouraged those who are frustrated with the status quo to consider the alternative this election cycle.

“He is a fraud. And I'll tell you, the people, though, have a chance to do something about it,” Bevin said. “I'm begging your listeners and the people of Kentucky and across this country: If ever you have cared, care now. If ever you are going to rise up, rise up now. If ever you are going to write a check, write a check now. If you've ever worried about your country, worry now, because this is the absolute crossroads that we must make decisions today that are going to affect us for generations to come.”

It was after Glenn brought up Bevin’s family – his wife, Glenna, in particular – that the candidate got especially fired up.

“I'll tell you: This is not a game. What is at stake is significant. It is the future of this great nation,” Bevin said emphatically. “And the idea that we got here by accident, the idea that we just got here by coincidence, and the idea that we're going to stay here on auto pilot is a fool's notion. And we have got to take ownership. We've got to step up.”

Glenn encouraged his listeners to consider how they can get involved this election cycle because the candidates are truly worthy of our support.

“If you believe in Mitch McConnell, then go contribute to the GOP… But if you hear this guy and you want a different course, I would ask that you… contact [Bevin] through his website and find out how you can help. If you don't have any money, that's all right. We're all in different situations, but we all have a way to serve,” Glenn said. “I don't know if anybody else felt that, [but] when he stopped… that was one of the most powerful moments I have felt… There's something special about this guy… And I would urge you to do your own homework, and if you find him worthy, then support him in the ways that you can.”

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.
