GLENN: I want to talk to George, would you say you are my most liberal friend? I mean, you don't know all my friends but you are so liberal.

LANGE: Ah.

GLENN: George Lange is one of the most decent men I know. He is I mean, he is a guy who came over to my house one time because he was going to take some pictures of me underwater in a suit and he came and he said, you'll be proud of me. I got a red, white and blue swimsuit. And I looked at it and I said, that's the Cuban flag, you communist! And it really was. And he was like, oh, wow, it is. I thought it was American. Anyway, and George, when I first met him, he refused to take pictures of George W. Bush because he told me and he didn't know who I was at the time. He said, I couldn't do him justice because I don't like him. And he said, you don't, you don't take a job unless you can do the right thing and take an honorable picture of somebody and something that would reflect them, and I was afraid that my view would be what was reflected in those pictures. And I looked at him and he didn't know that I was conservative at the time and I shook do you remember this, George?

LANGE: Sure.

GLENN: And I shook his hand and I said, you are an honorable man. And we have been friends ever since, and he's the only guy that does photos of me if I can, if I can ever help it. Because he's a decent human being and a world class photographer. He is the Annie Leibovitz of our day who's not going to go broke.

LANGE: Hopefully.

GLENN: Anyway, so George, I hired George to go down to 8/28 and take pictures really of my family because I really wanted things documented for my family and I was going to do a family album. And then the more we talked about it, he was like, well, you know, we should have a couple more photographers and take pictures of the crowd and take pictures of the event and everything else. And so we did and now I think, George, you have 8,000 photos?

LANGE: Right, right.

GLENN: So we have 8,000 photos of 8/28, and we started looking through them and decided that this has to be a picture book because it's remarkable the photos that George has taken of the crowds and the lines and the people and the children. And the event and the behind the scenes stuff, George, is just incredible. Just incredible.

So can you tell me a little bit about what you're looking for because we want to add some things to this book.

LANGE: Basically the story that I was photographing was on your side of the barricades. It was your experience, what it was like looking out. And one of the most memorable moments of the event is when we all came from behind the curtain and looked out at the crowd and realized what was going on and that feeling, I mean, all of us burst into tears, you know, each person from that was working with you when they looked out, the power of what was going on out in the audience, I really want to be a big part of the book and the most important part of the book. And we're really trying to get the experience that people had when they were planning for the event, when they were packing it home, packing up their cars, getting to the buses, the experience on the bus, getting to the capital. And then all the things that happened at the capital, there have been all these stories about random acts of kindness, people reaching out to other people that didn't have hotel rooms, people that needed their place saved in line, people having tickets to things and sharing tickets, all of those experiences we want to capture in pictures and we're hoping to have them sent in, along with people's stories.

GLENN: Right. We don't have and, you know, George and I laughed about it yesterday. I guess we should have thought this one through. We don't have pictures of people in the middle of the night, you know, sleeping out or in the middle of the night in their hotel room, you know, sharing, you know, the floor of a hotel room because it was the only one they could find. We don't have people, pictures of their families on buses, et cetera, et cetera. So where do people send these, George?

LANGE: I don't have the address.

GLENN: You don't have the address? Oh, here it is. Upload your photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. GlennBeck.com/828photos. And we're looking again, pictures after the event, pictures from the days leading up to the event.

LANGE: Pictures of families.

GLENN: Pictures of families, pictures of the garbage carefully placed around the garbage cans, packing your cars, if you have it. Pictures of people on the trains and the planes and the automobiles. People walking in these giant crowds blocks and blocks away from the event. Any kind of pictures that you have like that.

LANGE: The subway.

GLENN: You know, the subway lines we were told were two football fields we were told this by the transit authority two football fields long. Does anybody have a picture of that?

LANGE: Right.

GLENN: Please send them to us. Now

LANGE: We have most of what was going on the stage covered pretty well, although we're interested in seeing if there's some interesting pictures of that. What we're looking for is how people were interacting, the people they were next to, the people they were meeting and, you know, the

GLENN: Experience of getting there.

LANGE: Things they were taking away.

GLENN: Yeah. Also we want to hear about your shared experiences. If you ever stories send those to serve@GlennBeck.com. That's serve@GlennBeck.com. The uploaded photos at GlennBeck.com/828photos. And if you want to order this book, it is going to be a really beautiful coffee table book of the photos and the memories. I'm also going to have journal entries in there. It will outline the, you know, the 40 Days and 40 Nights plan in there. It will have behind the scenes are we going to put things in, George, some of those photos of my family and me and the children and everything else?

LANGE: Those are just so amazing.

GLENN: We've never I don't publish photos of my children, but George actually snapped some of the most amazing real intimate scenes with me and my family and my children leading up to it and he happened to capture them in a way where you can't see their faces which, you know, for obviously security reasons. But I want to include them because this is really about family. I'm going to show you some pictures tonight on television because I'm outlining another part of this plan unrelated to the book and I'm going to show you some pictures tonight of families that went to 8/28 that are stunning, just says everything that you need to know about what this is really all about. So if you want to preorder the book, you can do that now at GlennBeck.com. Is it going to be on Amazon? No? Don't know? Okay. So is it Glenn Beck

LANGE: Glenn, one technical thing. If you're uploading pictures, upload the highest res that you have. And also understand that if you are uploading them that we have the rights to use them in the book.

GLENN: Jeez. What a Nazi this guy is. All right. George Lange, thank you very much, sir.

LANGE: Thanks, Glenn.

GLENN: God bless you, bye bye.

LANGE: Take care.

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.

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.
