Glenn Makes Wild Prediction About Trump

Donald Trump has faced consistent pressure and scrutiny from Glenn, so his prediction Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program came as a surprise.

"I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump," Glenn said. "I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States."

Glenn has said Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate that his shoe or a rock could beat her. But her flaws are not the only thing stopping her from reaching the Oval Office.

"The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up," Glenn said.

Glenn has been adamant that Clinton would wipe the floor with Trump, so what led him to change his mind?

"After looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number --- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up --- I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump," Glenn said. "Ten percent, probably maybe, maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, 'It doesn't matter.' But if you can get 30 percent..."

A high percentage of Democrats voting for Trump could make the difference.

"That shows how weak of a candidate [Hillary] is."

GLENN: Hello, America. I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump. I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States.

JEFFY: Oh.

GLENN: And I don't think there's any way around it. I believe Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton. And here's why: The -- Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate. I've said this for a long time. My shoe would beat Hillary Clinton, right? Anything -- a rock will beat Hillary Clinton. That's why I said, "This is our biggest chance, our biggest chance to beat Hillary Clinton." And my theory was, because nobody is going to cross over to vote for the Republicans, per se. But if the Republicans would unite and they would unite around constitutional principles, we could win and restore the nation.

But what's happening is Donald Trump is a divisive figure. And a lot of people, you know, disagree with me. They think we're the divisive ones. Fine. Whatever. Those people who are supporting Donald Trump are, most of them, who have been on the bandwagon before, are not constitutionalists, not people who actually believed in the principles of the Tea Party. Some of them were Tea Party goers, but they have been so badly beaten and disenfranchised by the G.O.P., by the -- by the entire government, by culture, that they just want somebody to stop the madness.

But that's not the key to the success here. The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up. And I believe -- after looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number -- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up. I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump. Now, 40 percent of Republicans say they're not happy with Donald Trump.

Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that. Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that and say, for principles, I'm not going to do it. I'll find another party, or I just won't for that level on the ticket.

Ten percent, probably maybe -- maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, "It doesn't matter." But if you can get 30 percent -- when was the last time you ever saw a poll that said 5 percent of Democrats would vote for a Republican? Certainly not 30 percent in an exit poll that say they would cross over. That shows how weak of a candidate she is.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."
