NE senate candidate Ben Sasse talks about the importance of the grassroots in his campaign

Primary season is in full swing, and Glenn has spent the last several months highlighting some of the small government, liberty-minded candidates challenging big government Democrats and Republicans around the country. One such race is underway in Nebraska, where Ben Sasse is facing off against Nebraska state treasurer Shane Osborn in the May 13 primary to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE). On radio this morning, Sasse joined Glenn to discuss his campaign and what he hopes to accomplish in Washington D.C.

Glenn asked Sasse how he plans to fend off the likes of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) or Senator John McCain (R-AZ) or the other establishment GOP guys who are deeply entrenched in the Washington game. Sasse explained that he had an experience very early in his campaign that reaffirmed his promise and desire to stay principled.

“We had some lobbyists come to us in the beginning and say, ‘You seem like a nice guy. You same able and articulate, but we're going to be supporting your opponent in this race. And we're going to support him because he's been involved in state government before, and we understand he knows how to play ball. And you don't seem like a guy who would play ball,’” Sasse explained. “And my jaw sort of dropped. I had two meetings in a row, and lobbyists said the same thing: ‘You don't seem like a guy that will play ball.’ On that, the lobbyists and I agree. I'm not doing this job because of what lobbyists think.”

“The crisis is too many Republicans want Washington to be in charge, and I want local community to be in charge,” he continued. “I want entrepreneurs and families to be the center of American life. I want to grow the conservative movement, but I want to grow it based on articulating boldly what conservatives believe.”

Sasse went on to explain, however, that despite those encounters being incredibly disheartening, traveling around Nebraska and meeting the people has reaffirmed his commitment to serving.

“It [can be] incredibly disheartening,” Glenn said. “How did you get through that?”

“By just coming back and talking to Nebraskans again… The reason we're doing so well and there's so much grassroots momentum in this race is because people in my state, they are serious people,” Sasse said. “If you don't get your crops in on time in the spring, you are not going to get them out before the freeze in the fall and government can't just write a new rule to change that outcome. They believe in reality. And they believe we are on a path toward a Greek-style debt crisis. We just double down on what we believe, and Nebraskans are rallying around it.”

Glenn encouraged his listeners to do their homework, and if Sasse is a candidate they believe can effect real change in Washington, they should consider supporting him.

“Good luck there,” Glenn concluded. “We are really counting on you, and we are praying for you. Best of luck.”

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.
