Try holding Donald Trump up to this litmus test for leadership - then try Ben Carson

On radio Monday, Glenn shared a passage of scripture - familiar to many for it's frequent use at weddings. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast."

Glenn invited listeners to think of those verses in a different way.

"May I give this to you as a litmus test?" he said.

He then proceeded to profile himself against the test, followed by Donald Trump and then Ben Carson. The results were pretty mind opening.

Watch.

GLENN: I'm going to -- let me share something with you. We all know this because it's -- it's read at so many weddings. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast. It's not arrogant. It's not rude. It doesn't insist on its own way. It's not resentful or irritably. It doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing, but it rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures in all things. You may kiss the bride.

(laughter)

That's how we hear this all the time, right? We hear that over and over and over again. And then we have it, and we're like, "Ah, it's my favorite scripture because it's the only one I really know. I heard it at somebody's wedding. And whatever that one is, I want that read at my wedding because it will put my wife or husband in place and make sure they understand, you're going to be patient and kind and you're not going to be arrogant and you're not going to insist on your own way!"

May I -- may I give this to you as a litmus test. Let me give this to you as something I did last night as I was laying in bed and reading this.

I took out love. Now, in some scriptures it's charity. In some scriptures it's love. It's actually neither. The Greek word is agape, which is the pure love of Christ. It is the self-sacrificing love of God. It is what we have for our children. The minute they're born, something goes wrong with your children, you're immediately like, "I'll take it. Give it to me. Give it to me. Give it to me." That's agape. Where you are willing to do whatever it takes to your own demise because it's the right thing.

Now, let's talk out agape, charity, love, whatever. Insert your name here. Glenn is patient. No, uh-uh. Glenn is kind. Try to be. Glenn does not boast.

(laughter)

Glenn is not arrogant. Uh-uh. Glenn's not rude. Not a chance. Glenn doesn't insist on his way. Glenn's not resentful or irritable. Glenn doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. That's the only one that I could say I was pretty good on. I was like, "I got that one." Well, not so -- sometimes when somebody gets it, I'm like, "Yes!" But he rejoices with the truth. That one I got.

No matter what the truth is, I do rejoice in the truth. Bears all things. Not so much. Believes in all things. Uh-uh. Hopes in all things. Eh, if you believe hope is a step away from despair, I got it. And endures all things. Not with grace. I suck on that list.

Now, may I ask if your daughter or your son says, "I'm dating somebody great." Really, what's her name? "Harry." Really. Is Harry patient? Is Harry kind? Does Harry not boast? Is he arrogant? Is he rude?

This is a way for you to judge not only yourself, but also anybody who comes around you, anybody who wants to date your children, anybody you're supposed to go work for, anybody you're trying to hire.

How about this one? You think I flunked? Donald Trump is patient. Donald Trump is kind. Donald Trump does not boast. Donald Trump is not arrogant. Donald Trump is not rude. Donald Trump does not insist on his own way. Donald Trump is not resentful. Donald Trump is not irritable. Donald Trump does not rejoice in wrongdoing. Donald Trump rejoices with the truth. Donald Trump bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, the reason why I'm bringing this up into politics is because I want you to know -- let me give you another one.

Ben Carson is patient. Uh-huh. Ben Carson is kind. Yeah. Ben Carson does not boast, is not arrogant, is not rude. He doesn't insist on his own way. He's not resentful or irritable. He doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. He rejoices with the truth. He bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things. I think he's pretty good at that.

Now, here's the secret, this is the first step. It says in the -- in the verses right before. You could give away all your stuff. You could sell all your stuff and give it to charity. You can be at nursing homes every day. I mean, it doesn't say nursing homes. This is the gospel according to Glenn. You can do all of these things. But unless you have this, unless you have charity, unless you have love, unless you have agape, everything you do is worthless. Everything you do is worthless. It won't work. None of it will work.

So we have to start looking for this in ourselves, looking for this in our leaders, and knowing that's not all that is required. That's just the basic fundamental.

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
