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.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
