Meet the 15-year-old working hard to make an impact in elections across the country

Voters in Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Oregon, and Pennsylvania head to the polls today, and Glenn is particularly interested in the Kentucky Republican primary Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Matt Bevin. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to a remarkable 15-year-old Rhode Island student, Holly Fraser, who has been working tirelessly through her organization, Youth for Bevin, to raise awareness for Bevin’s campaign.

To begin, Glenn asked Holly the obvious question: What brought her from her home in Rhode Island to Kentucky?

Holly explained that she is a homeschool student has been involved in various political groups including Generation Joshua, which seeks to “raise up the next generation of Christian leaders and citizens, equipped to positively influence the political processes of today and tomorrow.” During her time with the organization, Holly campaigned for Ken Cuccinelli’s 2013 gubernatorial run in Virginia, and she was “so disappointed” when he lost.

Following Cuccinelli’s defeat, Holly began looking at other conservative candidates she could support.

“So after that was over, I was looking up other candidates that were going to be running this year because… I don't want this to happen to any other conservative candidates. I had to do something,” Holly said. “So I found Matt Bevin, and he just stood out to me. So the more I learned about him, the more I liked him. Once I began to listen to him, I knew he's one-of-a-kind candidate, and I wanted to do everything I could to help him win.”

That led Holly to found Youth for Bevin, “a national conservative student led grassroots movement for young Americans who stand with Matt Bevin.” According to the group’s website, they “believe young people have a duty to take action and shape the political culture of our nation.”

Holly has mobilized several dozen students from all over the country to make calls and spread the word about Bevin’s campaign. Holly and her mother, Elizabeth, have spent several weeks in Kentucky, and Glenn asked Elizabeth what she believes her daughter is gaining from her experiences on the campaign trail in several races.

“As a mom, what do you think you're teaching Holly by having her do this? Basically we'll back it up. She started this youth for Bevin in November 2013… As a mom, a home schooling mom, that's a wonderful thing to hear. I encouraged her. I said, ‘Go right ahead. We'll incorporate this into your home schooling,’” Elizabeth explained. “This is real life experience. This is changing not just Holly, but all of the students that have come. It's opening their eyes to what it's like to be actively involved, and I don't think a single one of these volunteers would ever become complacent when it comes to what's taking place in our country.”

When you consider everything that is happening with the American education system today, Glenn believes Holly’s story demonstrates the incredible opportunities that can come from homeschooling.

“Look, you may not want your kids going out and campaigning for somebody. You might want your kids to go out campaigning for Barack Obama. Homeschooling allows your kids to find their passion and follow it,” Glenn said. “You know your kids… Washington doesn't know that. Bill Gates doesn't know that… Everything that is being preached to us now as the way we have to do it is enslaving people, is dumbing people down, is putting them in a box, is medically unhealthy for them, spiritually detrimental. You use any label you want. None of it is good.”

“Teach your kids about freedom. Teach your kids to walk with the spirit, to listen to that inner voice, and pursue the things – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he concluded. “Pursuit of happiness kind of makes you think you're never really going to find it. You're never going to arrive there. It is all about the chase and the pursuit. That's what makes us great.”

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.
