Dana Loesch: People Will Flock to Flyover Country During Zombie Apocalypse

Liberal elites have a stranglehold on the coasts of America, but there's more to the country than just east and west --- a lot more. It's a vast space of land in between known as "flyover country." And the majority of those who live there couldn't have a more different mentality from their coastal brethren.

Dana Loesch, host of The Dana Show on TheBlaze TV, joined Glenn's radio program on Tuesday to talk about her new book Flyover Nation: You Can't Govern a Country You've Never Been To --- and recap what has been an election season for the ages.

"People don't have any idea on the coasts of who we really are," Glenn said.

Dana agreed wholeheartedly.

"No, and everything that we're dealing with right now and everything that we're talking about in terms of where conservatism is going --- and those people that are leading the way and those people that are making it up --- so many of those people are in flyover country," Loesch said. "When you look at Middle America, with the exception of Nebraska, you had Cruz and Rubio that took from the Canadian border all the way down to the Mexican border. There was this firewall in the Midwest of flyover states. I found that really incredibly interesting."

Another election moment Dana found interesting? Ted Cruz being skewered over the "New York values" comment. While people in flyover country perfectly understood his meaning, New Yorkers went nuts. She found the double standard incredibly irksome.

"We have been made fun of for as long as I can remember. And then one thing is said about New Yorkers, and they lose their ever-loving minds. I was offended that they were offended. Does that make sense? I thought, you have no right to be offended because we've been made fun of our whole entire lives. No, you don't get to be offended. We take first in that," Loesch said.

New Yorkers and other coastal-dwelling folks may mock flyover country values now, but Dana knows they'll flock to it when the rubber meets the road.

"I tell you what, when everything hits the fan and we have a zombie apocalypse that breaks out, people are going to be looking for hillbillies and rednecks. They're going to be running to those people," Loesch said.

In Dana's new book, she shares her alarm over America fracturing into two countries --- not North and South, but Coastal and Flyover. Worse, the people in charge don’t understand the first thing about how most of the country thinks and lives. For example, Coastals think every problem --- from hurt feelings to the cost of birth control --- requires government intervention and huge federal spending. Flyovers know that money isn’t magic fairy dust, and many problems can be solved only by individual character and hard work.

Flyover Nation: You Can't Govern a Country You've Never Been To is available now for pre-order and in bookstores everywhere on June 21.

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.
