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:

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
