Matt Bevin: There is a "hunger for change" in Kentucky

On the heels of Ben Sasse’s big win in the Nebraska Republican primary on Tuesday, Glenn is hopeful the momentum will carry over to next Tuesday’s Kentucky primary in which Matt Bevin faces off against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). On radio this morning, Bevin joined Glenn to discuss the waning days of his campaign and why he remains encouraged despite the poll numbers.

Bevin has been on the campaign trail for a number of months now, and Glenn asked him what the feeling on the ground has been.

“Frankly, we are very apathetic as a nation. Certainly, I don't think Kentucky is unique, but there are many people who are frustrated, who think we must do better, something has to change, but they don't feel it's within their power or responsibility to step up and be that change. It's disheartening,” Bevin said. “That said, last night I spoke to a group of 250, 300 people. There was a GOP gathering, and it was one where it was not the most hospitable crowd, but boy, we moved some people… So the groundswell of hunger for change is there, at every turn. We got a huge ovation from people when I was done speaking and not because it's brilliant. It's because it's real and resonates with people.”

Glenn explained that he used to have a good deal of “real respect” for McConnell because he considered him to be “one of the good guys.” But much in the way many long-term incumbents have turned into huge disappointments, McConnell suffered the same fate.

“It's really funny, because I used to have real respect for Mitch McConnell. I really did. I thought Mitch McConnell was one of the good guys years ago,” Glenn said. “If you are there too long, it just wears you down until you are just part of the system. And it's dangerous.”

“Term limits is what we need,” Bevin responded. “It will happen to any man. There's nobody who goes to that town and doesn't change… Yet those who change don't recognize it in themselves. We need congressional level term limits.”

Ultimately, Bevin asked those listening to remain informed and ensure they understand what is at stake before heading to the ballot box.

“I charge your listeners: America is great, and we will not stay great if people don't take ownership,” Bevin concluded. “I am just begging people, be engaged, step out there, make sure you are voting in an informed fashion, because this is the greatest nation on earth. And if the American people lose this experiment, if we lose the control of our government, which is quickly happening, then we have lost, and the world has lost a least great beacon of hope. We can't allow this to happen on our watch.”

“Thank you very much, Matt. We'll talk to you next week. It’s MattBevin.com - endorsed by FreedomWorks, endorsed by Kentuckians Against Common Core. Heidi Huber, who heads up Ohioans Against Common Core, also big with Matt Bevin,” Glenn concluded. “This is an important one. This is a game-changing election. And that's why the GOP has spent so much time and so much money trying to dismantle this guy because this one is truly game changing… Keep him in your prayers this weekend. It's something that can still happen.”

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.
