Walter Heyer: Transitioning Is Not an Effective or Proper Treatment for Childhood Troubles

Monday on radio, Glenn was joined by Walter Heyer, who has become a noted voice on the struggles facing transgender people. Walter suffered childhood abuse then transitioned to a woman following decades of struggling with gender dysphoria. After living as a woman for eight years, Walter transitioned back to living as a man. He now works with others walking a similar path.

"Walter, I have to tell you, I think America has changed from when you were young. And I think we saw it with Bruce Jenner when he came out and said he's been feeling this way his whole life. I don't know anybody --- none of my friends at least said anything --- but I can't imagine going through that and the empathy [people have] for [others] feeling that way," Glenn said.

Walt's reply was frank and refreshing.

"Well, yeah, my heart breaks for everybody who is struggling with it today. I'm fortunate because I've come out the other side. I've been married now for 20 years. And I'm working with transgenders who want to be transitioned, after they found out, as I did, that it was not effective or proper treatment for things that happened during early childhood," Walt said.

His statement caught both Glenn and co-host Pat Gray by surprise.

"That must be politically incorrect for you to be working with other transgendered people," Pat said.

"To even say that you can come out the other side . . . I mean, that's a nightmare, politically," Glenn said.

According to Walter, it happens quite a bit.

"Two teachers, who are struggling to, you know, come out with the union and tell them, gee, I need to go back after they got such support. So it's much, much more difficult to de-transition because of all of the efforts that went into transitioning. So this is the tough part, is to step up and come back," Walt said.

GLENN: Walt, how are you, sir?

WALT: Yes. Well, what a pleasure and honor to be on your show, Glenn. Thanks so much for inviting me on today.

GLENN: You bet. I will tell you, Walt, that you have a remarkable story, and I don't know how much you're comfortable sharing. But can we start at the beginning of your story?

WALT: Oh, absolutely. Sure. Any questions you have, I want to answer right here for your audience.

GLENN: Okay. So, Walt, start with your childhood and your grandma and your dad and your uncle and everything else.

WALT: Yeah. Well, I started out, you know, four years old. Interested in female things and cross-dressing. And my grandmother helped me by making me a purple chiffon dress, which we both delighted in. And it was our little secret. She did this while babysitting me. So that started the journey of gender dysphoria. Journey of transgenderism. Journey of confusion over gender. And then when my dad found out a couple years later, when the secret was out, and both my mom and dad found out -- my dad obviously was furious. And he -- you know, not knowing what to do -- keep in mind, this is, you know, before 1945. Because I'm 76 years old.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

WALT: So there wasn't much out there about this. So he was -- you know, he's a part-time police officer. Industrial goods salesman. Strong guy.

And I'm sure inside him was just turmoil. And so he decided that, you know, to toughen me up, he was going to exercise real strong discipline. And when the secret got out, my uncle, who was an adopted uncle, decided that, you know, it was appropriate to tease and sexually molest me.

So, you know, before you get very old in life, you're cross-dressing, and you've got some heavy discipline, and then you're molested.

GLENN: My gosh.

WALT: So it's not the best way to start.

GLENN: So at 13, you were told you had multiple personalities.

WALT: Well, it wasn't quite that early. I did start changing my name. I became -- I changed my name at 13 to Crystal West. And people began to wonder that I was confiding in, which was a small group of people. And so I didn't know what was going on. All I knew was I had these very, very strong feelings. And it just didn't go away, Glenn. They went on literally every hour in my head. I kept thinking that I was in the wrong body and that I should change to be in a female.

GLENN: Walter, I have to tell you, I think America has changed from when you were young. And I think we saw it with Bruce Jenner when he came out and said, he's been feeling this way his whole life. I don't know anybody -- none of my friends at least said anything but, I can't imagine going through that. And the empathy of feeling that way. I mean, I -- do you feel America has changed? When you can tell your story and -- I mean, I think the vast majority of people just their heartbreaks for you.

WALT: Well, yeah, my heartbreaks for everybody who is struggling with it today. I'm fortunate because I've come out the other side. I've been married now for 20 years. And I'm working with transgenders who want to be transitioned, after they found out, as I did, that it was not effective or proper treatment for things that happened during early childhood.

PAT: Wow.

WALT: You know, so I'm quite comfortable with who I am as Walt today.

PAT: That must be politically incorrect for you to be working with other transgendered people.

GLENN: My gosh. And to even say that you can come out the other side and this is not --

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, that's -- that's a nightmare politically.

WALT: Oh. Well, quite frankly, it happens quite a bit.

PAT: Hmm.

WALT: I've had as many as three people in a week contact me. Some of them are doctors, physicians that are changing, airline pilots.

PAT: Wow.

WALT: Two teachers, who are struggling to, you know, come out with the union and tell them, gee, I need to go back after they got such support. So it's much, much more difficult to detransition because of all of the efforts that went into transitioning. So this is the tough part, is to step up and come back.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Okay. So, Walt, you -- at what age did you decide to become a woman and begin to transition?

WALT: Yeah, well, at about 40 years of age, I went and saw a psychologist up in San Francisco who specialized in this. And he diagnosed me with having gender issues and said that I needed to undergo hormone therapy and wait the two appropriate years and then have surgery then by Dr. Biber in Colorado. And so I thought, "Well, this is pretty radical, but, you know, I've been struggling with this now for 36 years," by that time.

And so the feelings are extremely strong. And my heart goes out to anybody who is struggling with them. But I listened to the guy as though he was an authority on it. And two years later, you know, I got my second letter of approval. Went and had the surgery in 1983. I was an executive for American Honda Motor Company at the time. And they promptly terminated me, which was I think appropriate actually.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait. Wait.

PAT: Why?

GLENN: Why?

WALT: Well, you know, when somebody is struggling with that depth of issues, personal issues, they're not going to be effective in doing their work. I totally understand that. And so I -- I've never begrudged people for not wanting me -- and I went and interviewed for over 200 jobs, Glenn, and couldn't get a job because I was one of the early people who went through this. And I understood it. I told my counselor in California at the time, "You know, I understand that." It's a confusing issue. And people should have the right to not employ anybody who they don't want to employ.

GLENN: Where did you get --

PAT: What a hatemonger.

GLENN: Here's a guy who has been abused. You have every reason to be, you know, cut me some slack. Where are you getting this Christ-like attitude of, "Hey, I just need to do my thing. And I understand if you disagree." Where are you getting that kindness?

WALT: Jesus.

PAT: Just as you said, yeah.

WALT: I get it from Jesus. I totally understand that people are confused. Listen, I was a little confused for a while. Frankly, now it's nice to have my feet on the ground.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Especially Walt, at that time, because the only person I can think of that I knew about when I was growing up, that was in your situation, was Renee Richards, the tennis player, who went from man to woman.

WALT: Right.

PAT: And then there was the big controversy of, should she be allowed now to compete against women, when she's -- she just came from being a man. That had to be a really difficult time period because America wasn't socially where it is now.

WALT: Oh, yeah. Yeah. And keep in mind, Renee Richards has come out later and said -- regrets, I have a few.

PAT: Really?

WALT: Oh, yeah.

PAT: Wow.

WALT: So, you know, these are the stories that don't get talked about. And Renee doesn't suggest anybody have it.

In fact, Renee stays very quiet about it. But I don't. I -- I'm troubled by the fact that we have a population of people that are changing genders.

And from 1979 to this day, Glenn, they've been reporting extremely high rates of suicide.

GLENN: I know.

WALT: And suicide attempts at over 40 percent. So if this is so good and so effective and so wonderful, why are 40 percent of this population attempting suicide? That's a question I ask all the time.

GLENN: Well, it's interesting to me, when we talked about this last week and we spoke about how the, you know, pre-surgery suicide rate is 46 percent. Post-surgery it's 45 percent. So it's the same. So obvious, this does nothing to those feelings at all.

WALT: Yeah.

GLENN: And so it's -- it's not a life-saving surgery by any stretch of the imagination. And we are just -- we are just -- just throwing in with this and saying, "Yeah. This is all good." And if -- if I'm not mistaken, the numbers for suicide for, you know, people under 30, are -- are even higher than that.

WALT: Yeah. The suicide attempts -- I don't know what the actual rate of suicide is. The suicide attempts are at 50 percent. And at lower age-groups, children especially, 12 to 24, 28, somewhere in there.

So, you know, this is just not a healthy thing psychologically or emotionally. And what we do know is that, according to the studies, that 60 to 70 percent of the population are struggling from what's known as comorbid disorders. That's separation anxiety, dissociative disorders, body dysmorphic disorder. And schizophrenia and a whole bunch of other disorders that we are totally ignoring. And the treatment of modality of -- of people who are suffering.

We should sit these people down. And what I do is actually talk to them and say, what do you think was the trigger mechanism that set this in motion?

And 100 percent of the time, Glenn, every one of them, over a period of time, when we have this discussion, can identify the moment of trauma or event or situation that caused them to not want to be who they are and attempt to be someone who they can never be.

GLENN: Walt, we're with Walt Heyer, somebody who transitioned from male to female and then back to male. We'll continue with him here in -- in just a second.

(OUT AT 10:23AM)

GLENN: We're glad to have Walt Heyer on. He is a guy who has had really an amazing life. Started out in the 1940s with his grandmother cross-dressing him, his father physically abusing him, and his uncle sexually abusing him. Then he was diagnosed with a personality disorder and then gender dysphoria. He had a sex change to a man. Walt --

PAT: To a woman.

GLENN: Sorry. To a woman.

Can you tell me, Walt, what that is like, going through that?

WALT: Well, I -- you know, when I went from male to female, there was a period of euphoria, where, I thought, wow, I finally solved all the problems. And that all of this stuff that I had gone through and suffered was going to be behind me.

You know, the truth is, it's only a temporary reprieve because early childhood issues, when you have any event happen that you're struggling with, you need to go to psychotherapy and get it done. So I -- you know, within eight years of trying to suppress what had happened in my early life, I finally started going -- well, I went to -- as I went to UC Santa Cruz and studied psychology, I realized, you know, the whole gender thing is really built on a foundation of psychological issues, and they're trying to cure psychological issues by giving people hormones and surgery, which are defective.

GLENN: So, Walt, before you have transgender surgery, no one is recommending to you to have serious psychological work done on your childhood to see where those scars are? Is that just too politically incorrect now too?

WALT: Oh, that is really politically incorrect. In fact, in California and other states, it's actually against the law for a therapist to -- if the kid is under 18 years of age who comes in and said, I want to change genders. It's against the law for him to probe into what might have stirred this idea that --

GLENN: So wait.

PAT: Wow.

WALT: Yeah.

GLENN: So teachers -- teachers can -- are required to probe on sexual abuse and anything else if they have any inkling. Yet, a psychiatrist cannot probe a child who is having gender dysphoria?

WALT: Well, no. That's -- I know it sounds totally absurd. When I had -- just got an email yesterday from a mother who said, "My daughter is getting hormone blockers. She's 12 years old." I think it was. And I know there is something wrong because my child was sexually abused by her father. But they don't care. So they're going to give the child hormone therapies and send them down the track of changing genders. This is so common today. They don't want to acknowledge early childhood trauma in the transgendered population. They do not want to do that.

GLENN: Why, Walt? I mean, that's what Freud has been all about. That's what the progressive movement has been all about, you know, these hidden sexual fantasies and problems.

WALT: Glenn, if they allowed in-depth effective sound psychotherapy for people who struggled with gender issues, it would collapse the entire hormone and surgery procedure. Because they would be able -- to do effective psychotherapy, they would be able to pinpoint what the psychological issues are and would make surgery and hormones --

GLENN: But, Walt, you're -- I mean, I just have to play devil's advocate and push back here. What you're saying is, is that there are no doctors out there that are in this that don't -- that just say, this -- you know, I don't care about the money. We're talking about people here.

I mean, the whole industry is okay with doing that?

WALT: Well, I think there are some really good doctors. Because I've had people report to me that, you know, they would do it because they -- the doctor found that they did have coexisting disorders and wouldn't approve them. And, you know, whether it's a condition called autogynephilia, which people don't talk about. That's a sexual disorder. And so there are some excellent therapists out there that do provide good therapy.

GLENN: All right. So I want to pick it up there. I mean, you would have to get rid of other issues first and then go in. I want to talk to you about what is -- what it was like. And then your transition back into a man, which they say is a very rare procedure, when we come back.

(OUT AT 10:32AM)

GLENN: Walt Heyer is with us. WaltHeyer.com. H-E-Y-E-R. A guy who has just led an incredible life. Started off young. Grandma cross-dressing him. He says that planted the seed or fanned the flames of desire. Physically abused by his father. Sexually abused by his uncle. Was diagnosed with personality disorders. Then was a very early adopter of being transgendered, back in the 1980s, when it must have been -- you were remarkably alone, Walt.

This was the time, wasn't it, where -- I mean, that's early for America doing this. I think growing up, when I was growing up in the '70s, it was all in Sweden or someplace. Wasn't it?

WALT: Right. Yeah. Dr. Biber in Trinidad, Colorado, was kind of the sex change capital of the United States. And by the time I had gone there, he had -- he had done -- it sounds like a lot then, but about 2800 or 2700. So he was well on his way. He had started in the late '70s doing the procedure. So he was pumping them out almost daily.

GLENN: So when you had a sex change. I don't need to get graphic here. But all the parts were changed. What is that like, Walt?

WALT: Well, you know, at first, you think this is good. And this is the way you should be. And then you realize that you just have been mutilated totally unnecessarily because people didn't look at the early childhood issues. So that's devastating. And it's hard to deal with. And then you realize, back in those days, they didn't have, you know, good surgeons who could do anything to replace the destruction and was extremely expensive. And I was financially destitute. And so, you know, there's some things you just weren't able to do. So you transition back in as many ways as you possibly can. But even today, many of the -- what they call phalloplasty, which is putting things back together, isn't totally -- it's not going to function as it once did. And so that can actually be another deeper psychological issue after you detransition and have the surgery. Some of them -- reports are that they work fairly well. Other reports are that they don't. So it's kind of a mixed bag.

GLENN: Well, you wouldn't have any feeling down there. And you've taken away, I mean, chemically in many ways, some of the things that make you a man.

WALT: Well, you know, one of the things, Glenn, that I came to the conclusion, that appendage did not make me a man.

GLENN: No, I understand. I mean, I just don't want to get graphic.

WALT: Right.

GLENN: But there are things involved that, you know...

WALT: Yeah. Yeah. So it isn't -- it isn't totally replaceable, let's just put it that way.

GLENN: Yeah. So, Walt, what was it -- when you had transitioned to a woman, you say it lasted for a while, this euphoria. And then it kind of started to go back to the way it was, to where you're like, I am -- what? Because you had thought you were a woman, or you would just be happier as a woman beforehand?

WALT: I thought I would be much happier as a woman. But then you realize that -- the same thing, Glenn, kind of happens again. I don't remember at what point it was, but a point on down the road, you realize, now you're a man trapped in a woman's body. How do you fix that? And this is the reason for this. Is because you never really resolved the original issues that caused you to not want to be who you are. And so I think that's the core issue. We need to look at this as people not being who they really are and attempt to be somebody who they cannot be.

GLENN: I have to tell you, I can't -- I cannot imagine -- I mean, look, you know, I said this last week. And we've had this for a long time. You know what, that is between you and your maker and whatever -- you know, I just am not going to judge people. And I can't imagine living the life that you have lived. I thank God I haven't had to.

But you have come out of it on the other side happy and whole and finally at peace. But there are -- I can't imagine that people wouldn't say, hey, let's overturn every stone before we start doing this. Let's just make sure that this is what's really going on with you before we take some really dramatic -- to push that all underneath the rug is -- is sickening to me. But at the same time, Walt, you have said more things -- I know this show is going to show up on all of the lefty sites and going to say that I've had a hatemonger on and that I am bigoted and everything else, when I've not heard anything but compassion from you, compassion from us, and you -- but you have said some controversial things that nobody wants to say like, it's -- you're not born that way.

WALT: Right. Yeah.

And, you know, Glenn, I would be here today -- let's just take it for what it is. It's Jesus and my 31 years of sober living that make this possible. And so once I came to know the Lord and got sober, things began to fall into place. So I understand that people -- and I struggled when I didn't have those two things in place.

GLENN: Me too.

WALT: So I know there are a lot of people who are not going to like what I have to say. But I'm concerned about the number of people who are attempting suicide. And that's why I speak out. Because I hate to see that. I was one of them who attempted suicide. And my heartbreaks for them, that they become so confused and so -- just entrenched into this whole transgender life that they just want to kill themselves. I mean, that to me should stop the hormones and surgeries right in their tracks until, like you've said -- basically, turn over stone. You're so correct on that, Glenn. They should turn over every stone.

GLENN: Well, until you go to AA, I mean, as a recovering alcoholic, you know, you'll go to a doctor and they'll treat you with all kinds of stuff. They'll give you all kinds of drugs and everything else, to help you through whatever it is. But until you -- until you turn and find a higher power and you start doing the 12 steps and realize there's something in you, you know, you could say it's a disease all you want, I don't care. I don't care if I was born this way.

There are tons of alcoholics in my family. And there are tons of people that have committed suicide or at least it seems like that, in my head, in my family that have killed themselves. If I was born that way. Fine. I'm born that way. But it doesn't matter to me. Because I know what has helped. And AA and going through and plowing through the whole life and making peace and then serving is the answer, at least for me and millions of other people. It sounds like it's the same kind of thing that you're saying.

WALT: Exactly.

You know, and in AA, we talk about doing the same thing over and over again. It's insanity. Well, here we are, with the transgender surgeries and hormones. They've known since 1979 that people attempt suicide, and they're still attempting suicide today, and they're still giving hormones and surgery to people. I mean, that's insanity.

PAT: Walt, are you completely comfortable in your own skin now, do you feel like a man?

WALT: Oh, absolutely.

PAT: So those feelings -- none of that lingered. You've overcome that?

WALT: No! No lingering.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: How -- when did you meet your wife? And how did you go through all of this with her?

WALT: Well, I was actually speaking at an AA meeting, a recovery meeting. And she had nudged a friend that she was there with and said, that's the kind of guy I want. He's been through all this stuff, and he's out the other side, you know.

So we started seeing each other. And so we knew each other for about five years before we got married. And so -- like I said, we were married in May, 20 years. So it's wonderful. I mean, she is, you know, just my -- my companion. My rock. She edits all my books and all my writing. And -- and is so supportive of what I do. And she's just fantastic.

GLENN: You know, I looked at your website during one of the breaks, and I see the people who are there who are -- you know, have transitioned to women and now want to transition back. And the -- the heartbreak there.

WALT: Right.

GLENN: At what point, Walt, did you -- I just talked to somebody who said to me, you know, I don't talk about my alcoholism, Glenn. I know you do. But I don't really talk about it at all. I don't see any good that comes of that. And I said, well, to each his own. For me, I've seen tremendous good from that. Because I'm not hiding it and I don't care. And it helps other people.

And at what point in your life did you say, I don't care if people know that I want to be a woman. I don't care if people know that I want to go back to being a man. And I don't care that the world seems against me on political correctness. I'm going to say it.

Was there one turning point in your life?

WALT: Well, yeah, I think when we started the website about 12 years ago -- and I thought I was probably the only person in the entire world that regretted it. And then all of a sudden, you know, within that first year, we realized -- we had 700 people came to the website that first year. And, you know, one person contacted us. And I thought, okay. Well, I'm not alone. Well, to give you an idea, in 2015, 350,000 people came to the website.

GLENN: Wow.

WALT: And now we have people contacting us frequently from around the world and United States, Canada, Australia, Italy, everywhere, who are struggling with these issues. Because we're really giving them the wrong information about what and how to treat gender issues. And so I'm excited today that I can lend an ear to it. You know, I can't change, you know, what the powerful groups are doing. But if I can help one person, if I can prevent one person from committing suicide, which I've already done -- if I can prevent somebody from totally unnecessary surgery, then, you know, my life has meaning. And that's why I'm here.

GLENN: If you had one message for somebody or a parent that was struggling with this, what would the message be?

WALT: Well, any time somebody is announcing that they are transgendered. Someone needs to look back and see when that onset of that desire, that feeling, that struggle, and begin to explore what caused it. Was it a traumatic event? Was it an illness? Was it -- something always has happened in somebody's life that caused them to not want to be who they are, and then they began looking around for a way to escape. And what I want to do is let people know that they don't need to escape. They need to face whatever issue it is. Get effective sound psychotherapy and avoid hormones. Avoid unnecessary surgery. Turn your life around. And you're going to be far better off than struggling with the issues of a lifetime of hormone therapy and surgery that mutilated your body.

GLENN: Walt Heyer, thank you very much for talking to us today. I appreciate it, sir. God bless.

WALT: Thank you.

GLENN: Remarkable life.

STU: Yeah, whether you agree with him or not, I mean, what an experience to go through.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. And he's going to be bashed. So are we for having him on, I'm sure. But you can't say that that guy hasn't lived it. I mean, that guy has as much right to say what he believes as Bruce Jenner.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: When he came out and announced -- I have the same feeling about Bruce Jenner, you know, when he was Bruce and he came out and said, I've -- I'm Caitlyn. I mean, I feel the same way. How are you going to argue with somebody's, you know, life experience? You can't.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.

America's end? How the left is paving the way for revolution

Photo by Koshu Kunii on Unsplash

What if I were to tell you that we're all being set up for a Civil War? I know, I know... You're not supposed to say things like that, but it's ABSOLUTELY true. The left is grooming us for revolution, and they're not even trying to hide it anymore. They're being so blatant. It almost makes you wonder: is this by mistake or by design?

I want to show you what's been happening just in the past 2 weeks. I started to notice a trend about a week ago. Axios ran this article on September 1st.

A top Democrat data and analytics firm, Hawkfish, said in an interview on HBO that it was “highly likely" that President Trump will appear to have won in a landslide on election night, but will actually ultimately LOSE after all the mail in votes are counted. They said:

We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump... When every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day, which will be some day after Election Day, it will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage.

It's no surprise what's going on here... We've known from the start why the left wants to fundamentally alter how Americans vote. If they were ACTUALLY concerned about people not being able to go to the polls, they'd tell everyone to vote absentee. But that's not what they did. They proposed mailing out ballots IN MASS. That would give them WEEKS after election night to pull off a little magic trick. My question now is, what happens during those weeks when the left furiously begins jimmying up the votes? What happens in the streets, AND from the left side of Washington D.C.?

I then saw this Politico story hit, one week later, on September 7th.

Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders have teamed up to WARGAME what they'd do if Trump “refuses to leave office." Sanders referenced the “red mirage" that Axios and Hawkfish warned about — that Trump would have appeared to have won on election night, but weeks later would have lost after all the mail in ballots are tallied.

These are not the actions of a party that expects to win LEGITIMATELY. They see the writing on the wall. And it's no surprise who Hawkfish works for: both the DNC and multiple Joe Biden Super PACs.

I'm going to come back to this later, but a week after Sanders and Schumer began voicing their concerns that Trump might now step down if he lost, the Daily Beast reported that Democrats were secretly planning for violence after election day.

One day later, on September 9th, the New York Times ran an INSANE story about what might happen on election day. Everything that might make the election delegitimized, including the Russians (of course), false flags, disinformation, extending the vote, pollers getting Coronavirus, and... uncounted mail-in votes.

It kind of feels like we're being prepped for something doesn't it? Like we're being GROOMED for something on election night. We all need to be familiar with these two words: Color Revolution. If you live in Eastern Europe you know exactly what I'm talking about. They always occur after a contested election. Street activists come out in force the night of or the day after the election. Violence ensues. Government buildings are occupied, eventually — if successful — culminating in a successful revolution. We've seen it successful in both Georgia and Ukraine, and it was ATTEMPTED in Russia in 2011.

Ukraine and Russia... What did those two revolutions have in common? The Obama Administration, the Obama State Department, organizations like USAID and the National Endowment for Democracy, and allied outside agitators like George Soros. The SAME people and strategy behind Eastern European style Color Revolution are planning the EXACT SAME THING for mainstreet U.S.A.

You know, it really is amazing how everything I've been talking about over the past year is all connected. I showed you what Obama and Biden were up to in Ukraine. Civil Society 2.0 and their tech camps were all about inciting revolution throughout the world. I showed you how U.S. funds were funneled into Ukraine to support street activists. They used people like George Soros to topple governments with leftist mobs, and then rewrite constitutions.

I showed you how Black Lives Matter has had a financial relationship with George Soros since 2015. BLM met IN SECRET with Soros' organization, Democracy Alliance. I'll discuss this later.

Project Veritas outed Soros for funding Refuse Fascism, an organization created by 60's era leftist radicals, which supports ANTIFA.

Now put that in perspective. Remember when I exposed the global plot to destroy Capitalism called The Great Reset? Remember Soros' speech at the World Economic Forum?

The stock market, already celebrating Trump's military success, is breaking out to reach new heights. If all this had happened closer to the elections, it would have assured his reelection. His problem is that the elections are still 10 months away and in a revolutionary situation, that is a lifetime.

Why do you think Democrats STILL say that Stacey Abrams won the Georgia governor's election? Who is she? She doesn't matter IN THE SLIGHTEST — unless it was NEVER about her. They wanted to plant the seeds of what they're doing RIGHT NOW — that an election could be stolen — and burn that into our brains.

Why did Democrats refuse to condemn the violent riots? Why are they starting to push Russian election interference again?

What was up with that ridiculous conspiracy theory about the Post Office rigging the election?

Why did Hillary Clinton say this a few weeks ago?

ALL of the same people are connected and they are ALL involved. Their goal… is Color Revolution. THIS IS WHAT THEY DO BEST! They've done it before and they're attempting to do it again. They're not even really trying to hide it. They're talking about it IN THE OPEN. The question you might have is why? And the answer is… they can't let it look like a conspiracy. We're being softened up and desensitized to what's about to happen IN JUST 2 MONTHS. They want to remove the elected president of the United States, and they want US to believe that it was all HIS fault.

It really is kind of brilliant. It's INSANE, but brilliant. The entire plan hinges on two things. First, they're relying on us being stupid. Everything falls apart if we understand and recognize what they're really doing. And second, they're counting on us not connecting what they did in places like Ukraine to what's going on here at home.

I'm pulling back the curtain on ALL OF IT. Who's behind it, and how are they pulling it off. The process has already begun.

I'm not saying the CIA was involved, but...

The Intelligence Community teaches a little formula for pulling off a successful coup in a foreign country.

It's called “The Three M's." Before the CIA would even attempt to assist in a foreign coup, they would first ensure they had control of the media, the military, and a whole lot of money.

I'm not saying the CIA was involved, but you saw this play out to a T in the recent coup attempt in Turkey. The coup was driven by a large faction in the military.

Soldiers then seized newspaper outlets and even took over CNN.

Coup sympathizers were flush with cash.

That drove Erdogan to begin seizing banks.

It's simple but effective.

Now this is how violent coups go down in FOREIGN countries. All of this is what's needed for radical actors to pull off a successful revolution and upend the country.

Also we have the media. Just like in the CIA's “Three M's," you have to control the flow of information. The left has already DOMINATED this step. They have everyone — MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post — ALL OF THEM. Independent outlets like Blaze Media are basically all that's left. We've got Fox, but for how long? Roger Ailes is gone. Rupert Murdoch is 89 years old, and his family isn't too conservative.

I would also group Hollywood here. Some people don't watch the news, but pretty much EVERYONE watches TV and movies. If you can't indoctrinate through the news, you go straight at them via culture. Democrats have infiltrated and dominated Hollywood for a long time. The bias is painfully obvious. You can't even watch an awards show anymore. Events like the Oscars and Emmys are the left's version of an extravagant liberal tent revival.

Control the flow of information and culture and you direct the narrative, but you have to ensure you indoctrinate the young and vulnerable — that's why you also need education. Progressives have been infiltrating colleges and universities since the turn of the century.

A new study published by the National Association of Scholars found that the ratio of Democrat professors to Republican is 12.7 to 1! They're indoctrinating young adults who then go out into the workforce — many of whom become school board officials, union heads and teachers. I just spent two weeks exposing Marxism, Black Lives Matter and critical race theory, all being taught in K through 12 schools. They're backed up by powerful unions like the National Education Association — THE LARGEST UNION IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY!

Next is GOVERNMENT. Democrats already control the House and the radical wing within the party are rapidly pushing it further to the left. They lack the Senate and Executive, but elements of the liberal Deep State are picking up the slack.

The State Department was using a Soros-linked media tracking tool to monitor conservatives and Trump allies. And all this is not to mention what the DoJ, FBI and CIA were doing to Trump.

I also have the military.

Multiple former high level military brass have come out publicly against Trump. Ok ok, so that's FORMER military, but remember Lt. Col. Vindman?

We now know that it was he, NOT THE WHISTLEBLOWER, that started the entire impeachment fiasco. This was an attempted coup... FROM WITHIN THE MILITARY!

Next is money. For Socialists to get everything they want, they need an unlimited supply of money. Well, not to worry. The Coronavirus is giving them EVERYTHING they could have ever dreamed of. As I showed you in my specials on both Event 201 (the Coronavirus wargame), and The Great Reset, this virus is providing them the tools to turn capitalism into a form of National Socialism. Have you seen what the Fed is doing? After all is said and done, the Coronavirus response is projected to exceed $10 TRILLION. People are starting to say it out in the open now.

The Fed is moving towards Modern Monetary Theory. It's the belief that governments with sovereign currencies can “print" or “coin" money to support full employment or essentially any government program they want. It goes against every SANE economic model from the history of time. Debt? Means nothing. Inflation? Means nothing. And we're the science deniers?

Modern Monetary Theory is how they plan on creating the ultimate centrally controlled authoritarian welfare state. Now you know why they CONTINUE to say we need to lock everything back down.

Next, they need control over the local police. This is part of the reason for why Black Lives Matter exists. BLM hits the streets, and the mainstream media perpetuates the lies that all police are racist. Democrat lawmakers then have the leverage to push for things like defunding, and even disbanding, entire police departments.

And if that strategy fails, George Soros — while simultaneously funding Black Lives Matter — is ALSO quietly buying up District Attorneys all over the country. They're undermining police and completely overhauling the U.S. Justice System.

But none of this is even doable without a strong Bottom Up street movement. They need people causing chaos. They NEED protests. They NEED riots. This is why almost ZERO Democrats have condemned the rioting. They won't speak out on Antifa and they sure as heck won't condemn BLM. It's why the media refuses to do the same. It's how the Wisconsin rioting can be called “mostly peaceful" despite Kenosha being burnt to the ground.

Along with the media and Hollywood, they also need Social Media. Do I even need to go through this one? Google, Facebook, Twitter. When was the last time a prominent member on the left was censored for ANYTHING? When was the last time they were shadow banned or kicked off a platform?

Some are doing it blatantly out in the open.

Like Twitter doing their own “ fact checks." Well, with their own liberal bias of course.

Others, like Google, are doing it quietly. As I exposed with Robert Epstein, Google is trying to manipulate your vote, and the way YOU THINK, without you ever knowing it happened.

Think about all of this. The left controls every single step to pull off a successful revolution. And the final point: Compliance. Infiltrate every point on this board, and gain full public compliance, and you've successfully stolen a country. Just look at how easily Americans were willing to comply in the shadow of Covid. How easily the Bill of Rights was willing to be shredded over a virus with a 99% recovery rate.

They've got LITERALLY EVERYTHING, and I think the election defeat of Hillary Clinton escalated their plan for revolution. It went into overdrive in 2017, and it culminates THIS NOVEMBER. It's a multi-step process, and we're seeing it go down week by week, day by day. The closer we get to November, the closer THEY get to pulling off their plan.

As I mentioned earlier, Color Revolution is what they do. It's what they're good at. They LITERALLY WROTE THE BOOK ON IT.

Something happened and it changed the entire game.

Ok. I've shown you how the Intelligence Community pulls off coups, and I've shown you what is needed for a successful revolution to take place — eerily similar. But I don't think the left even thought they needed to do anything drastic. After 8 years of Obama and a shoe-in victory predicted for Hillary Clinton, they assumed all was proceeding as planned. They had everything they needed. But something happened and it changed the entire game: Donald Trump won and blew everything up.

The left has been using the word “revolution" a lot lately, and we had better start taking them at their word here. It's no longer hyperbole. Listen to this from John Kerry while attending a panel for the Alliance of Democracies.

Kerry was addressing a question about the American system, IN GENERAL, and threw in that line about not having access to vote.

If you begin to deny people the capacity of your democracy to work, even the Founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, we have an inherent right to challenge that.

Wow. But for Kerry, all is not lost. He is “encouraged" by something.

What encourages me is this incredible spontaneous reaction to the killing of George Floyd by those police officers has unleashed a torrent of awareness, that people see this unfairness now and it is, I think, becoming a voting issue.

I wonder if the rioting, looting, fires, and deaths are part of what he describes as “encouraging" and the “torrent of awareness"?

You see, I think John Kerry knows EXACTLY what he's doing here. He's seen all of this before. In fact, he was a part of it during the Obama Administration in 2013 and 2014, but it wasn't here, it was in Russia and Ukraine.

This is a photo of John Kerry strolling through Red Square in Moscow back in 2013. It was an interesting time in Eastern Europe. Color Revolutions were breaking out all over. When this photo was taken, Russia itself was in the tail end of their own, called the Snow Revolution.

It kicked off after a disputed election — this is going to sound very familiar in a couple months — by online bloggers who were suddenly very savvy on organizing massive protests using Facebook and social media. Sounds like we've heard this before. Oh yeah. Civil Society 2.0 and Tech Camps.

See if this also sounds familiar.

Russia immediately banned USAID and kicked out the George Soros Foundation.

I'm definitely not saying anything positive regarding Russia, but after knowing what we now know about what the Obama State Department was doing with Soros in Ukraine, I can understand why Putin was so pissed off.

Let's go back to that photo of John Kerry in Moscow.

The man to Kerry's right is Ambassador Michael McFaul. He was a Stanford academic that became the first non-career diplomat to ever ascend to that post. McFaul took office right as the Snow Revolution was kicking off. Let's just say the Russians were highly suspicious.

After arriving in Moscow, McFaul gave an interview to a Russian outlet explaining how he was different from other Russian diplomats. Here's a translated quote from the interview:

Most of the specialists on Russia are diplomats, specialists in security, arms control. Or Russian culture. I'm neither. I can't quote Pushkin by heart. I'M AN EXPERT ON DEMOCRACY, ANTI-DICTATORIAL MOVEMENTS, REVOLUTIONS.

Kind of an odd thing for a newly minted Ambassador to say once arriving in the country.

And similar to how the State Department in Ukraine was supporting the street activists, McFaul was holding meetings with protest organizers in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. In fact, he met with opposition leaders BEFORE he ever met with Putin. But I'm sure he was on Russia's radar long before he arrived as the new ambassador. In 2005, McFaul wrote an academic paper on what was needed for a successful Color Revolution.

He called it the “Seven Pillars."

In order for a Color Revolution to break out, McFaul identified these specific things that must be present. This is the Obama Administration guide to ejecting an elected leader, and toppling a country.

  1. A semi-autocratic rather than fully autocratic regime.
  2. An unpopular incumbent.
  3. A united and organized opposition.
  4. An ability to quickly drive home the point that voting results were falsified.
  5. Enough independent media to inform citizens about the falsified vote.
  6. A political opposition capable of mobilizing tens of thousands or more demonstrators to protest electoral fraud.
  7. Divisions among the regimes' coercive forces (Military/Police).

All of these “pillars" were present in Georgia in 2003. The government was toppled. They were present again in Ukraine in 2014. The government came down. They thought they were present in Russia in 2013, but it failed. And now, they think they have the components ready for here. Now.

All of the pillars are accounted for.

This one is all about ACTION.

Everything I've outlined represents what's needed for a revolution to begin. All points have been met. I think the plan was to do this gradually over time, but — as I said earlier — Trump came along and escalated the timeline.

Now I want to discuss the Obama Administration's Color Revolution plan. It differs a bit from mine. Mine shows the conditions required, but this one shows how you actually START one. This one is all about ACTION. So let's go through the steps.

1. A semi-autocratic rather than fully autocratic regime:

How many times have you heard it? "Trump is literally Hitler!" It's a meme at this point. There are books on it, and there are DAILY news articles about it.

At first it doesn't make sense. How can you even BEGIN to make the comparison? Would Hitler have moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem? Would Hitler have ever been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for helping to broker peace between Israel and Arabs?

It's so ridiculous. In fact, everything they accuse Donald Trump of being is what THEY would be if given power. Joe Biden called for a national mask mandate. Donald Trump didn't do it. Why? Because HE DOESN'T HAVE THE POWER TO DO IT! An authoritarian would have just done it anyway. Many have called for Trump to send in the troops to quell the riots. Donald Trump has refused. Why? Because it's first a city matter and then THE STATE. The federal government is THE LAST RESORT. Would an authoritarian act like this?

So why are they doing this? They NEED to portray an image to the American people that Trump is a despot. It's the very first step in the process, and it literally started on DAY ONE.

The media began comparing Trump to Hitler the DAY OF THE INAUGURATION. But being an autocrat isn't enough. For the plan to work, STEP TWO, he had to remain an unpopular candidate for the entire term.

2. An unpopular incumbent.

Remember this?

This was 10 months into Trump's presidency. Talk about not aging well. Look at how produced this segment is. Everything from the colors of the set, to Olberman's suit. These videos were designed to engage as many people as possible, to KEEP them engaged and to have them coming back for more.

#THERESISTANCE! It started on day one and spread like wildfire. It's all over the place. The resistance hit Trump for EVERYTHING he did. He was constantly under attack BY DESIGN, but it was always void of facts. That didn't matter. it rarely does. They needed a divided base, and look around. They got it. Keith Olberman KNEW that the Russia collusion narrative was full of crap. That's why he abruptly ended The Resistance videos prematurely before a verdict came out.

Remember when Trump ended DACA back in 2017 and the waves of protests that followed? The left was quick to capitalize on this by doing what they do best — pissing people off and getting them out in the streets. But they never provided the context for what Trump was ACTUALLY doing. Look at that headline:

"Trump Ends DACA, Calls On Congress To Act"

The story wasn't “Trump ends DACA." The REAL story was that Trump gave the power Obama STOLE from Congress back TO THEM! Who's the authoritarian in this? The one that seized power or the one that gave it back?

They never give context because that's not what was needed. They needed the APPEARANCE that Trump was unpopular. Kind of puts organizations like The Lincoln Project and Never Trumpers in a whole new light doesn't it? What drives their hate of Donald Trump? Is it irrational? Or is it just part of a “7 Pillar" plan?

3. A united and organized opposition.

Had anyone ever really heard of Antifa before Trump became the GOP nominee in 2016? Antifa was small-time, but now they're all over the place. This is Tee Stern, an organizer with Refuse Fascism:

Earlier, she admitted that they had been given funding from George Soros. This organization SUPPORTS Antifa. Now we see in this video that the ultimate goal — I'm using her words here — is to get thousands and millions into the streets to force elected officials to step down. Keep in mind, all of this was BEFORE George Floyd.

And we can't forget Black Lives Matter — the MARXIST organization (something the media will never say). They had all but died out after 2015. We barely ever heard from them, but after George Floyd — like Antifa — they're all over the place. And what are they even protesting anymore? It's not about George Floyd. They protest cops when people try to KILL COPS, like what happened in Lancaster.

All of this is the set up or preamble. They're organizing and building the network for something much larger in November. Professional organizing groups are being brought in to help.

Journalist Stacey Lennox over at PJ Media recently identified this group: the Momentum Community.

They're veterans of Occupy Wallstreet that have trained street activists all over the country.

Their website lists the Marxist groups they train, including Working Families, Black Lives Matter and the Sunrise Movement. The Sunrise Movement has been helping to push the Green New Deal.

Where does Momentum Community get their inspiration? Check this out from their website:

Momentum synthesizes the lessons of various 20th century movements, including the COLOR REVOLUTIONS of Eastern Europe and the ARAB SPRING in North Africa.

4. An ability to quickly drive home the point that voting results were falsified.

This is where the preparation turns to action. This is what's planned for election night. This is also why Democrats radically pushed for mass mail-in voting. It's why the U.S. Postal Service conspiracy was born.

The entire reason for that Axios article I showed you earlier was meant to perpetuate it.

It's the reason why Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer made it public that they're making plans in case Donald Trump doesn't step down. They want to give the Bottom Up street thugs the green light, and to let them know that they have support from THE TOP. It's all signaling.

5. Enough independent media to inform citizens about the falsified vote.

Number 5 is easy. Just about every mainstream news outlet except for Fox is all in bed with the left.

That article from the New York Times that I showed you earlier, not only shows you how ridiculous they are, but that they are playing RIGHT ALONG with the Obama Administration's “7 Pillars." They've all been prepping, and will be ready to UNLEASH on election night.

6. A political opposition capable of mobilizing tens of thousands or more demonstrators to protest electoral fraud

Antifa and BLM were prepped, organized, and even put through a trial run over the past few months. What happened then will be NOTHING compared to what happens on election night if the left declares electoral fraud. You wanna know why the left refused to call BLM a Marxist organization, and why they REFUSED to condemn the rioting and violence? Because they're preparing to set them loose! They're being mobilized.

The Daily Beast recently reported that the left has been secretly planning for violence after election day. They've been wargaming what might happen with over 50 organizations, including people like John Podesta and even Bill Kristol. I told you earlier. #Resistance and never Trumpers are together. And who organized this meeting? Something called Fight Back Table.

It's an initiative put on by Democracy Alliance. AKA... George Soros. I mean of course it would be him. He's been there organizing and funding Color Revolutions for the past two decades. There's no way he'd sit this one out.

One source told the Daily Beast what Fight Back Table's mission was all about:

Occupy sh*t, hold space, and shut things down, not just on Election Day but for weeks.

The wargame centered around this document from the “Transition Integrity project."

It includes multiple scenarios for how they'll deal with various outcomes of the election. If you think using the words “revolution" and “civil war" is hyperbolic, read the following quote — and I have to quote the entire thing because it's INSANE:

Team Biden encouraged Western states, particularly California but also Oregon and Washington, and collectively known as "Cascadia," to secede from the Union unless structural reforms were made. In exchange for Trump getting the presidency, Republicans would need to agree to abolish the Electoral College, give Puerto Rico and D.C. statehood, and divide California into five states for better Senate representation.

They're not playing around. This is what they're actively planning to do.

Finally, number 7...

7. Divisions among the regimes' coercive forces.

By “coercive forces," they mean military and law enforcement. This is why the police are being undermined, defunded, and disbanded. It's why Soros has been buying up District Attorneys. It's why rioters are being set free and not prosecuted.

But perhaps the hardest and most important piece to this pillar is the military. In every scenario — the Intelligence Community's, mine, and the 7 Pillars — the military is key. They HAVE to create a division between Donald Trump and the military.

I showed you earlier how multiple high ranking members of the military publicly rebuked the president. How many more ACTIVE members of the military agree with this? We already know that officers like Lt. Col. Vindman are there. How many more? Remember this story?

The Atlantic made the ridiculous claim that Trump called veterans who died in war “losers and suckers."

But when the people that were actually there were questioned, including John Bolton, they said it never happened.

Now at first, I just assumed this was the media being the media, but then I saw this tweet, just two days later, from author of the “7 Pillars" Michael McFaul:

He has lost the military. How can he continue to serve as our Commander in Chief?

Was this more than just some random tweet? Was this the signal that the Seventh Pillar is now set?

These are not the actions from a party that believes they will win. They're pulling out all the stops, and I hope — AND PRAY — that the president is ready.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.
