Glenn shares an exciting update in the Get TheBlaze campaign

Now through August 25, the FCC is collecting public comments in regards to the proposed merger of Time Warner Cable and Comcast. This merger would allow two of biggest cable monopolies – with the worst customer service records – to dictate what 30% of America can see on cable TV. Ultimately, this means less choice, less competition, and higher cable bills.

On Monday, Glenn asked his listeners to make their voices heard by visiting GetTheBlaze.com and filling out the FCC comment form. As he explained, just 10,000 comments would make a big impact for the FCC would be unable to ignore the response. On radio this morning, Glenn announced more than 8,000 comments had already poured in.

“Right now, there are six companies that control [70]% of everything that is on television, everything that you see reported in news or entertainment. That is a monopoly,” Glenn said. “And there's no way around it without going through the government. I'm not a guy who likes going to the government, but I will tell you: This is very bad for news, information, and entertainment.”

Earlier this year, TheBlaze released a video that simplified just how little choice there actually is on television:

Because of Monday’s overwhelming response, Glenn decided to up the ante and make a new goal.

“I'd like to make a new goal. I'd like to see if we could do 30 to 50,000 comments,” Glenn declared. “If they can't ignore 10,000 [comments], what will the attorneys and the FCC and Time Warner and Comcast have to do and say when they've got 50,000 comments saying, ‘This is bad for the public interest.’”

“All you have to do is think about this: Do you think combining Comcast and Time Warner will make your rates go down or up? Do you think innovation goes down or up? Do you think choice goes down or up,” he continued. “Competition is good… Stop the mergers. They're getting too big and too dangerous. Go to GetTheBlaze.com and speak out for the public interest.”

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.
