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:

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
