I want to talk to you a little bit about the ‑‑ I want to give you a little bit of hope today. Stu, I want you to go through these numbers for me, will you? I'm going to give you a little bit of hope today. We were talking about Barack Obama and, you know, how his poll numbers are fantastic. I want you to look at his poll numbers and I want to show you the beginning, what I believe is the beginning of the end for the parties, the two‑party system, and here it is. Stu, give me the poll numbers.

STU: All right. This is a Rasmussen poll that's out today from Rasmussen Reports. It's, you know, typical approval rating. They do daily snapshot every day. Barack Obama approval rating, 55%. Which is as low as I've seen it, at least in quite a long, I think ever as far as Barack Obama. 43% disapprove. But there's some interesting trends behind that.

GLENN: Right, okay, hang on just a second. 55% approval rating, and that is still good. I mean, you know, 55. The number 43% disapprove is not good. Is there a neutral category? Is it just, I disapprove or approve?

STU: I mean, you've got, what, 98% accounted for. So maybe 2%? At this point how do you not know?

GLENN: How do you not know. So he's polarized but he's still in the approval section.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: So that looks like a good number.

STU: And behind that number is 36% strongly approve. 32% strongly disapprove.

GLENN: Okay. So you're polarized with 32%. Everybody else is in the center. You've got 65, 70% on the edges. That's not good. You want ‑‑ you don't want 60% on the edges because that's where the conflict comes in, you know. Remember I was doing the thing the other day on the swinging of the pendulum where you don't want ‑‑ you want that pendulum to swing kind of in the middle. You're going to need ‑‑ if you're going to make big dramatic moves, you are going to have a lot of support and a lot of enemies on each end, but you don't want those numbers to grow. You don't want 70, 80, 90% on the edges because then it's unstable.

Okay, go ahead.

STU: Exactly. You look at ‑‑ there's some things you'd expect out of a poll like this. You expect the GOP to not like Barack Obama.

GLENN: Give me the number.

STU: 71 to 25.

GLENN: 71% disapprove. 25% approve.

STU: Out of Republicans. There's certainly some room to drop there still.

GLENN: Give me the Democrats.

STU: Democrats, 89% approve.

GLENN: 89% approve.

STU: 12% disapprove.

GLENN: Disapprove.

STU: You can't really improve over 89%. You can't go too far over 90. You kind of top out. There's always some percentage of your party that doesn't like you. You know, 90% is really, you are topping out unless it's, you know, something like right after 9/11 where George Bush hit those numbers, but that's very rare.

GLENN: Then independence.

STU: Independence I found very interesting. 53% disapprove. 45% approve, on independence. Now, this is the guy that was bringing us together. This is the guy that was going to unite everyone. You know, I know everyone made fun of uniter, not a divider. But that was how this guy was sold just as much, if not more. 53% disapprove. 45% approve. Again we are in April.

GLENN: Okay. Here is where the problem is for Barack Obama and I believe our two‑party system. This morning at 9:00 a.m. I turned in the manuscript to Simon and Schuster for Common Sense based on or inspired by Thomas Paine's original Common Sense. I believe this is going to be a dangerous book because it is so frank, it is so clear. It is a message that I don't think that you hear in the mainstream at all, and it takes both parties down, holds both of their feet to the fire. And this is going to ‑‑ Stu, the time that an empire is at its most dangerous point is when?

STU: Its most dangerous point?

GLENN: Most dangerous fear is an empire ‑‑

STU: Scare, fear and hunger?

GLENN: You are just throwing Glenn Beck answers.

STU: When it's in collapse?

GLENN: When it's in collapse, correct. The empire of the two‑party system is about to realize that it may go into collapse. When that happens, they will become extraordinarily dangerous because they're just going to grab onto power and they will do anything to destroy anyone to stop that from happening. They will use anyone and push their head under the water to keep themselves afloat, okay? I believe we are, you know, maybe a year away. I don't know. I have no idea on the timing of things, but I believe that we are on the road. If things continue down this road, we're on the road of these guys collapsing and here's where I want to show it to you. This is why. This will make you realize, oh, wow, wait a minute; my side actually is winning. If your side is the truth and not the parties.

Everybody's going against, if you look at the media right now, what is everybody doing? Barack Obama is ignoring the tea party people. All of the media centers are ignoring the tea party people or ridiculing them. That's the only way they're going. They have decided for their own power, because they are collapsing. Their ratings are absolutely horrific, and they are collapsing. So what do they do? First they reached for Rush Limbaugh. Then they reach for people like me. Then they reach for the last straw, people like you. In the case of the media, they are only doing this, they are selling out their principles of journalistic standards. Have you ever seen the media actually blatantly pick sides? They didn't cover. They decided what this movement was. They decided that this movement was anti‑Barack Obama, it was just a Republican shill, it was nothing but ‑‑ it was started by CNBC. This is quintessential grassroots. Well, they will call ACORN grassroots that is getting government money. This is not.&nb sp; Their ratings are in collapse. So they decided to save themselves. They will just pull down the people in the center of the country. They will just pull down the people who are libertarian in spirit and growing more so every day. When you look at the approval rating of 55%, everybody can say, "Oh, my gosh, Barack Obama is doing really well." When you look at the GOP, you see that his number with the GOP is 71% disapprove. But only 25% approval. 25% approval. There is still more to lose with the GOP. When you look at the Democrats, 89% approve. 12% disapprove. It is my thesis that 12%, you can't get much higher. George Bush wasn't higher than this after September 11. What, 93%? Okay, maybe 4 percentage points. But that was after 9/11! 9/11. So you are hard pressed to find any more Democratic support for Barack Obama than he has right now. So he has every place to go but down with the Democrats and the GOP. But here's where it means something more than just the president of the United States: Independents disapprove 53‑45. These people are still swinging: 53‑45, but they lean disapproval. They don't like the games between the Democrats and the Republicans and these people were onto, wait a minute, they were betrayed by Bush and they were betrayed by Barack Obama. That can only ‑‑ that number, I believe, is not going to stay stable because the number of independents in America is not stable.

A few years ago there were only 11% of the country that said, yeah, I'm just independent. That number is now 25% that I am now just independent. That number is growing. As these groups continue to disenfranchise their own bases, as the tea party movement grows within both parties and they say "I am not going to be a part of this game anymore," as people start to understand the game which I believe we have exposed clearly unlike anything you have ever seen before, at least not in one place, it is all of it put all in one place, when this movement is really, when people start to pull that curtain back and see it and they are like, oh, my gosh, look at this, that number goes through the roof of independents. That's when they are in real trouble, and America will be restored. When people say, "I'm not going to play this game anymore." You should get great, great hope out of the fact that people are starting to leave the parties. It's what George Washington wanted to happen. Everything that's happening right now is exactly what was in George Washington's farewell address. He said, "Listen to me, please, just remember these things. Don't do these things." We've done them. And he said the destruction that would be wrought if we did do them, and it is the same destruction. It's amazing. It's like prophecy from this guy. And so what do we have to do? We have to leave these parties and start listening to George Washington. I know he's been dead but he's still very, very relevant. And get away from these parties. As we do that, however, they will get more and more vicious because they're not just going to shed this power.

The same with the media. The media is not going to shed their power. They are losing their newspapers. They are losing their ratings on television. If you look at what Fox is, if you take the Democrats and the independents and you combine them, there are far more Democrats and independents watching Fox News than there are members of the GOP. There are more of those two parties. But if you look at the numbers in the country and you say, okay, if you take independents and Democrats and the GOP, there's this big number out there. But if you only play to one side and the independents don't want to play with you, well, then you got nothing. And if you look at the ratings of these television shows, it takes MSNBC, Headline News and CNN combined and they still don't beat like my show or O'Reilly's show. That's phenomenal and that's what really is happening in America. But warning: Once they realize that there's no place else to go and they are about to lose their newspapers and their television stations, then they are in full‑fledged panic because what they realize is they are actually losing their grip on power.

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
