Glenn reacts to Bevin’s loss in KY: Remember, only 10% changes the world

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) cruised to victory on Tuesday in Kentucky’s Republican primary – besting Matt Bevin. McConnell will now face off against Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes in November’s midterm election. McConnell and Grimes are neck and neck in the polls. Glenn was obviously disappointed with the results of the primary, but on radio this morning he took a surprisingly optimistic tone as he emphasized the power of the individual.

“There are 3,105,349 Kentuckians that are registered to vote. McConnell won with 209,829 votes total. Bevin got 124,544 votes. [209,829] people voted for Mitch McConnell out of 3,105,000. That means there are 2,770,976 people who didn't vote for anybody,” Glenn said. “Were we too busy watching movies? Were we too busy playing on our cell phones? I'm not sure. 10% voted yesterday in Kentucky for one of these two men.”

Glenn firmly believes that everything happens for a reason, and this is not the last the world will see of Matt Bevin. While the voter turnout in Kentucky was abysmal, some 125,000 felt the need to cast their vote for change even though the polls were not in their favor.

“No real answers are going to be found in Washington. The people who created the problem will not be able to solve the problem. And now we are actively engaged and eagerly voting for our own destruction. When a people vote for their own destruction, there is nothing that can stop it,” Glenn said. “[But] there were 124,000 in Kentucky that still believe in change the right way. The rest voted, if they voted at all, for same stuff… [But] 124,000 people said, ‘You know, I'm going to vote for change.’”

The last few months Glenn has openly discussed some of the things he is praying for, and humility comes up time and time again. Glenn opened this morning about he has been struggling to figure out why the summer event he had in the works was unable to come together.

As Glenn explained, he and his staff had “a spectacular summer event planned in Pittsburgh” that would have included Sean Hannity and Mark Levin, but it feel apart not once but twice. After things fell through the second time, Glenn realized he might be getting a message – though he didn’t understand it at the time. Yesterday, Glenn believes he came to a better understanding.

“Yesterday I think I figured out the message: Politics. Too big. Far too big. The answer is not there,” Glenn explained. “I don't know what you will do. You might choose to give up. You might choose to be discouraged and walk away. You might choose to get mad, to get even. I urge you to remember Moses – delayed for 40 years.”

It is time to start thinking about the larger group, the collective and refocus our attention on the individual. TheBlaze is going to continue to grow and expand in different ways as Glenn refocuses his own priorities as well.

“We're no longer capable of standing as a group. We must stand as individuals. Who you will follow, I have no idea. I know who I'm going to follow. And it's not going to be a man. And I recommend the same thing for you,” Glenn said. “I wrote this last night about 1 o’clock in the morning. I want you to know clearly who I am and where I'm going.”

Glenn explained what he feels he is being called to do:

In my professional life, TheBlaze will continue to tell the news stories of the day. That was step one. It always has been step one. TheBlaze will continue to tell the news of the day, and we will look for ways to expand that in every possible opportunity. We will ask you and beg you to help us do that.

But I am also going into culture. I mean I didn't really have this much white hair four years ago, five years ago. It's white. And let me tell you something: We're about to go into the culture in ways that I hope will turn everybody's hair white. And it's not about politics. And it's not about control. It's about the individual. We're going to keep fighting professionally.

Political life: I'm going to continue to vote. I'm going to continue to have a strong voice on what I think people should do. In my religious life, that is a dedicated priority. That and my family, priority number one. I believe in Him and I will continue to pray to be humbled so I only rely on Him.

I've started praying for not the future. Can I have just my daily bread? Will You just provide enough food for me today so I can continue to rely on You. He doesn't trust me or anybody else because we'll do it our way. I don't want to do it my way. I've done it my way over and over and over again. It doesn't work. Please, just make sure that I'm doing Your way every step of the way.

In my personal life, I will continue, I hope, to fundamentally as transform as a man. Corrie ten Boom is one of my goals. Create light. Moses is the American story. Do we get to the Promised Land? I don't know. Maybe. Maybe not.

Ultimately, Glenn believes that with each and every person humbling himself or herself and living the life he or she is supposed to live, real change can occur. It doesn’t take a lot of people. It just takes the right people.

“Remember, only 10% of the Israelites left with Moses. 10%. 90% accepted the slavery. 10% changes the world. 10%,” Glenn concluded. “But the number required? One individual. I'm dumb enough not to stop, but I'm smart enough to change tactics. No third party. It won't work. What does? Nothing that comes from man. Find your path. Follow no man. Love one another. Vengeance is His. Quite frankly, everything is His. We don't own any of this stuff. We're supposed to be caretakers, and I fear we have dropped the ball on that one.”

Glenn spent much of the first hour discussing this theme. You can listen to the entire hour below:

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
