Ousting Trump Will Sow Seeds of Civil War

Several conservatives, including former Cruz campaign staffers, have been accused of advocating a Donald Trump ouster on the floor of the convention. Glenn dove into the topic on his radio program Friday.

"There's a lot of talk about the GOP now dumping Donald Trump at the convention. I cannot believe this is true," Glenn said. "I think this is wishful talking for people who don't support Trump, but I don't think it should be wishful talking and hoping because I think it leads to great trouble."

Glenn went so far as to describe how it could sow the seeds of civil war.

In a letter to William Stephens Smith, Thomas Jefferson famously wrote, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

Are we at that point? Has liberty withered enough on the vine? Co-host Pat Gray didn't think so.

"When Jefferson talked about watering the tree of liberty with the blood of patriots, I don't think he was talking about during a primary season when you've just overturned the nominee," Pat said. "I think he's talking about when they suspend the Constitution --- when they light the Constitution on fire and your rights have been taken from you."

While the rights of American citizens have surely been trampled upon, the Constitution has not yet been suspended.

"I don't think lighting the fires of a civil war is something that I rush to. You have to remember, the Civil War ended in more deaths than all other American wars combined. That's a stunning stat," Glenn said. "And you look at what that did to this nation --- we barely made it. And we made it because we had Abraham Lincoln at the helm. You want to start a war? With who? Who is in charge? Who is leading this?"

The American people have made their choice --- and the GOP must respect it.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Glenn shared additional thoughts in a Facebook post Thursday night, much to the surprise of many supporters --- both Glenn's and Trump's:

This won't happen, nor should it. The time to defeat trump was in the primary.

I have said since the beginning, if the GOP changes the rules to allow some trick, on ANY candidate it will lead to the end of the party and possibly to the kindling of a civil war, God Forbid.

This will only cause chaos and more hatred.

There are no good answers now for many Americans.

Maybe 50% of Americans don't want either, but the time to let your voice be heard was during the primary.

How you vote is your business, but rigging the game after it has been played and someone has 1237 only leads to more trouble.

I really don't think I have to tell you how much I do not like it, but it doesn't change the fact:

Trump is the nominee.

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.
