GLENN: We have some amazing things to go over. You are terrifying this administration. This audience is the most, it is water to the Wicked Witch of the West. They are terrified of you. We have monitored this Netroots meeting that the president spoke at, that Rachel Maddow spoke at, that Ed Schultz spoke at, that every single I mean, they say that the tea parties are organized by Fox. It couldn't be further from the truth. And here we have Maddow and Schultz and everybody else speaking at the progressive convention and nobody says a word.

PAT: Yeah. And Pelosi? I mean, they are politicians.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: Everybody's there.

GLENN: Now, they are terrified, and not in the way that not that you are carrying a gun or they are afraid you are going to blow up anything. They know that you stand in their way, period. That's all it is. They know. The president had to come out and apologize to them and say, hey, look, I know that you don't think we got a lot done, but we did. We got a lot done. You just have to hold on just a little bit. Van Jones said the same thing. They have to convince their own people that this administration has accomplished something because they thought that this was going to be an open highway. They thought we would already, I don't know what, be communist by now? That we would have you know, that the president would have been able to destroy absolutely America, everything America is?

PAT: Yeah. This was a chilling statement when he said this.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Change hasn't come fast enough for too many Americans. I know that. It hasn't come fast enough for me, either. And I know it hasn't come fast enough for many of you who fought so hard during the election. The fact is it took years to get here. It will take time to get us out.

PAT: Yes. It's 1776, it took us to get here, and he's trying to dismantle that in one year.

GLENN: Do you have the Rachel Maddow speech by any chance? Rachel Maddow said I think this is incredible. Rachel Maddow, she introduced the president. He did a video and she introduced the video. And she said she's had to report the news of each of his accomplishments in office from healthcare to hate crimes to student loans. Quote: The last time any president did this much in office, booze was illegal. Who was that president Rachel Maddow was talking about? Is that incredible?

PAT: Was it James K. Polk?

GLENN: No, it wasn't.

PAT: No?

GLENN: It was incredible.

STU: Who was it? Was it Garfield?

GLENN: Don't make me say his name.

STU: No, who was it?

PAT: William Harry Henry Harrison?

GLENN: The name that shall not be mentioned.

STU: I don't know who you are talking about. You need to inform the people.

GLENN: Woodrow Wilson!

PAT: Who?

GLENN: Isn't it amazing, isn't it amazing that two or three years ago on this program when I first found Woodrow Wilson on this program and said, oh, my gosh! Look at how evil this guy is! And everybody do you remember? I mean, people still do it: "Glenn Beck is obsessed with Woodrow Wilson." Isn't it incredible that this is the guy they've modeled themselves after? This is the guy! Out of all the presidents that everybody knew nothing about.

By the way, a listener sent me or brought to the, what do you call it, the American Revival a big picture, a framed newspaper: Woodrow Wilson is dead. I have that hanging over my desk in my office. I love it. It's quite possibly the best gift ever given. I love it.

So I want to go over some of the things that they said at this, at this meeting over the weekend because it is important that you understand who you are to them. They laid out a detailed plan of coming after you, not only me but you. I am just, I'm just the guy who everybody gets together around, but I'm not the one they are afraid of. They are afraid of you, and it's fascinating to me. For the first time they actually admitted what they have done and they talked about how, you know, they have boycotted my sponsors not because they are trying to get me off the air but they are trying to discredit me by only leaving me with little sponsors that no one has ever heard of. Those sponsors that are left, they talk about going after them. That's what I've told you this is what's happening with Goldline. And by the way, thank you. Thank you for Goldline called me and said, these guys are so stupid. Our business has actually increased. I said, you know, our audience isn't dumb. You know, they just know. Anybody who is standing by, they may not agree with everything that I say but they understand America and they also understand that this audience, you know, full of consumers.

But they talked about one other thing in their speeches this weekend and it is this: That they must come after you. They haven't been able to find a way to destroy me yet, and they're doing it. According to this we'll play the audio for you. They are just going to continue to come after me. Now they are using what they call the evangelicals. They said they almost had me, they thought, with Jim Wallis. Really? Did you? I haven't even begun to fight on that one. They thought that we they almost had us with Jim Wallis and there's a plan, and they outline the plan and how they are going to use the churches and how they are going to use the evangelicals against me. I understand that. I got it. You should know that. Because the other thing that they are going to do is they said they are going to start looking into the makeup of the audience. They are going to start reading the things that people say about being a Glenn Beck fan and they are going to start following those people and looking about what they write online and what groups they are affiliated with because Glenn Beck has got to have some bad people in his audience and we'll discredit him even more with the audience now.

So just know that you now and I told you this, what, three months ago, four months ago? And I was overwhelmed by the response of this audience. But I want to give you that loophole just as I said to Goldline three weeks ago, and I told them four months ago, and I told them eight months ago: Look, if the heat becomes too hot in the kitchen, I understand. No hard feelings. And I say that to you. It may be in your best interest to not visibly stand by me because they are going to come after. And I want you to understand that this movement is not about me. It never has been about me. It's an insult it's an insult to America to make it about me or the president or anything else. This is about universal principles. This is about nature's god and nature's laws. And so if they take me down, you have to be standing. And if they take you down, somebody else has to be standing. We need to really view ourselves as nonarmed, nonviolent cells. Because they really think that if they can take me down, it's over. But it's not. You'll never sit down. I know you. You are exactly like me. You'll never sit down. If they take me off the air, if they take me off radio or television and, mark my words, they will, I'm coming to your house. I'm coming to your park. I'm coming to your church. I'll come to your school. I'll come to your car. I'll come where anybody will come and listen. If I'm just mowing my lawn and you drive by my house and I'm completely unemployed and you drive by and your window's open, you'll hear me preaching it.

I didn't stumble onto George Whitefield without a little divine providence. Understand there is a difference between divine providence and manifest destiny. Manifest destiny is a perversion of divine providence. It is what they're using against this country with all minorities because after our founders died, it went from divine providence, it went from a group of guys saying, oh, my gosh, we're just standing up for what we believe is right, what we believe are the laws of nature and nature's god, we're just standing up for those things and look at His finger all the way along. We would have never been able to pull this off if it hadn't been for God helping us. That's divine providence. Manifest destiny is, "Get out of my way. I'm on a mission from God." I'm not on a mission from God, nor is this country. We are just standing up because it's right. We find ourselves experiencing divine providence because we're standing with nature's god and nature's laws. They cannot be undone. So humbly travel together. Humbly we shall not fail.

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?

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.
