Glenn Beck: Air America loses bout with capitalism, dead at age 6

Glenn: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, could we stop the music, please, and have something a little more appropriate, please?

(Piano music playing.)

Glenn: It just went at an unexpected time yesterday. It just crept up on us. Nobody really saw it coming. Nobody even knew it was ill. It was a shock to the system, but we lost Air America yesterday.

Pat: Gosh. So young, too. So, so

Glenn: And so healthy.

Pat: Healthy and young, vibrant.

Stu: How can these jobs not be saved? I don't understand.

Glenn: Well, they will be eventually.

Stu: I hope so.

Glenn: Through NPR, PBS, and the expansion of the government into all broadcast.

Pat: Well, that will be great, because when they fine us for do so well, they'll redistribute the money right back to them. So, they'll do fine.

Glenn: Right back to them. Air America announced yesterday that it was this damn economy that

Pat: Dang this economy!

Glenn: Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. It had nothing to do with the fact that I believe the people that were running it for awhile were embezzling.

Pat: No.

Glenn: It doesn't have anything to do with the fact that the guys that were running it originally I think were taking money from charitable organizations to prop it up.

Stu: And also not paying their employees for awhile.

Glenn: Yeah.

Pat: Zero listeners.

Stu: Zero listeners is a really good one.

Glenn: Zero listeners, that only had something to do with they hired people without any real talent.

Stu: Yeah. Consistently.

Pat: Seemingly a problem.

Glenn: Yeah. So

Stu: It was a little sad. It was a little depressing

Glenn: They did do a retrospective before they went off the air last night, the best of Air America and

Pat: Did it last for about a second and a half?

Glenn: No. It went from 5:59 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Stu: Woe.

Glenn: It was you know, all the things they really had a huge impact with America.

Stu: You have to think about it, though, when you have an older, like, a grandparent and they get to the end of their lives and they're really struggling through a lot of pain and eventually they pass and you think think to yourself, at least it's over for them. I mean, this is some this is an organization that went bankrupt so many times and the over and over again brought it to the financial hospital to be just brought back to life.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
