'His humility is obvious': Bitcoin expert reflects on experience with Glenn and TheBlaze

After returning from a trip to Silicon Valley last month, Glenn had a newfound interest in Bitcoin - though he admittedly understood very little about the currency/payment system. On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn welcomed three Bitcoin 'experts' to the program to discuss the theory behind Bitcoin, its viability, and its future. One of those guests, Jeffrey Tucker of Liberty.me, penned an article reflecting on his experience with Glenn and TheBlaze, in which he commended Glenn's "humility, openness, and willingness to learn."

"We think we know but then, it turns out, we don’t know. That’s the main lesson I’ve gained from watching the extraordinary rise of Bitcoin… But, to understand requires some humility," Tucker writes. "This is why I was thrilled to be invited to be on the Glenn Beck show, along with my colleagues Elizabeth Ploshay and Kristov Atlas… It was not a debate. It was not contentious. It was about learning. He asked questions and together we worked through some of the biggest issues in the cryptocurrency space."

While Tucker admits he has not followed Glenn closely, he palpably sensed Glenn's understanding "that we are on the verge of something big in history, something that will end in a terrible authoritarianism or in a new manner of freedom." Furthermore, fi we are to achieve that freedom, "it will not likely come from top-down reform."

Tucker praised TheBlaze's "large, modern, eccentric, super techy" headquarters that he described as "teeming with talented young people working in every aspect of production." He also praised Glenn for his "humility" both on and off camera.

"I would like to add something about Glenn too. I’ve known many people in his position who are not nearly as appealing in person as they are on camera… I did not get this impression from Beck at all. His humility is obvious off camera," he writes. "He could not have been more humble, self effacing, and down-to-earth… He runs an amazing media empire at this point. And yet he has maintained his personal authenticity and intellectual curiosity. That is very much to his credit, and I say that with full awareness of many disagreements we might otherwise have on many issues. I just can’t help but admire someone like this."

Ultimately, Tucker encouraged readers to embrace the rapidness of the digital age by being opening to learning and open to adapting.

"In some important ways, Beck has furthered the discussion of Bitcoin. He opened his mind to the topic and went exploring," he concludes. "This is what we all should do, not just on this topic but all a huge range of topics that are confronting us in this digital age. There are many things we do not understand but can, provided we have a teachable spirit."

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.
