GLENN: It's another day in America. And as we look to the future, there's a list of potential GOP candidates for 2012.

PAT: Getting together again for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. That's where, you know, it's kind of the precursor to the presidential race, and it happens today through Saturday in New Orleans. Among the speakers this year so among the potential candidates, this is from whom we're choosing apparently, at least so far. Newt Gingrich.

GLENN: Can't win. No way.

PAT: Ron

GLENN: You know what, if you listen to Newt Gingrich, Newt Gingrich has a lot of great ideas and he's a great historian. I just think he has too much baggage.

PAT: Ron Paul. Enough said there. I mean

GLENN: No.

PAT: No chance. Bobby Jindal.

GLENN: Well, now wait a minute. Hang on. America has changed. There are more and more libertarians, but I don't think that there's a chance for Ron Paul.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Sorry, but Ron Paul, I mean, he's right about many things. And I'm more and more in his corner on

PAT: Fiscally?

GLENN: No, fiscally I'm absolutely, I mean, let's abolish all of it. When it comes to military, I'm more and more in his camp, but I am not somebody who says, stop it right now. You can't. You can't. You have to phase it out. You can't create a vacuum. But as far as I'm concerned, the rest of the world, I mean, I'm president of the United States; here's what I say: The rest of the world, fend for yourself. And you attack us; I'm going to use everything we got. I'm going to use men last. I got missiles. Some of them are aging and need to be replaced. I might as well use them. So don't screw with us. You know what I mean? And the last thing I'm going to do, by the way, I'm going to vaporize you and I'm not going to help rebuild. Don't screw with us. But, you know, Ron Paul is just too much for me, for my taste. But I think America's moving his direction more and more every day.

PAT: Then there's Bobby Jindal, another speaker.

GLENN: You know, Bobby Jindal, I really like Bobby. I've met him a couple of times and I really like him. He really hurt himself in that speech that he gave, remember, after the inauguration? But that's, you know

STU: That's one mediocre speech.

PAT: Mediocre, whew, that was kind, Stu.

STU: He's like kind of the opposite of some of these other like, you know, Barack Obama who's much worse off prompter. Bobby Jindal's much better off prompter.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, Bobby Jindal

STU: You know, in debates and stuff he would do a lot better than he did in a speech and again it was his first big public

GLENN: Can I tell you something? America will want somebody who can go off prompter, you know?

PAT: But on prompter he was like, I think that

GLENN: He was not good. I like him and I like his policies. I think this guy is I think he has a chance.

PAT: I think he's the real deal.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Michael Steele speaking.

GLENN: Didn't Michael Steele just step down from

PAT: No. His top chief of staff. He says he's staying.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: And then Sarah Palin.

GLENN: Is that really a good idea? I'm sorry. Did I say that out loud?

PAT: I think you did.

GLENN: And then what?

PAT: Sarah Palin.

GLENN: I don't think she wants to be president.

PAT: No, she doesn't seem to.

GLENN: I don't think she wants to be president.

PAT: And then, you know, he's not listed as speaker, but the other, you know, potential that we hear about all the time is Mitt Romney. And he's saddled with the burden of Massachusetts healthcare in the face of a very unpopular federal system.

GLENN: I have to tell you that Mitt Romney could be the only guy that could win, and I don't know if he could because I think that Americans are going to be I mean, this country is going to be in deep trouble by 2012, and the next term, if it's not decided this term, the next term will decide our fate. Then I hope that Americans are ready for an adult and are ready for hard news.

I tell you, you know, this who is it, the Huffington Post came out and said that Glenn Beck is only making money by saying things that everybody wants to hear. I'm going to give you a week next week. I have a thinktank that we've put together and all next week I'm going to lay out the map of cutting the budget in half. I am going to I'm going to make everyone in America angry next week, even you. Everyone in America is going to be angry with me next week.

PAT: Because you know that's what America wants to be. You know they want to be angry and that's just another

GLENN: It will only help. It will only help me make my money on saying things that I don't believe

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: I'm just saying the things that people want to hear.

PAT: Because people want to hear that America's about on the brink of economic destruction. Who doesn't want to hear that?

GLENN: I know.

PAT: We all love it.

GLENN: I know.

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.
