GLENN: I've just got questions that need to be answered tonight. Not by the administration but by you, by your neighbors, by your friends. Questions that need to be answered. What are the odds? I want to get Steve Nguyen on. What are the odds? Give me the best Vegas odds maker, will you, Steve? Give me the name of them. What are the odds? In fact, if anybody knows odds makers, if anybody I want you to watch tonight. Tell them to watch tonight. I'd love to see the odds of what I'm going to lay out tonight because they're staggering. It's so far beyond a reasonable doubt that it's laughable. What were the dreams of his father? What a great question. Thank you, Pat.

PAT: Thank you.

GLENN: I'm going to give you a cupcake now.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Wow, I would have brought that question up a long time ago if I would have known that.

GLENN: I actually gave them to Jeffy to give to Dave because Dave is here as our guest today and Jeffy probably gave them to Dave.

PAT: Wait, you got a cupcake?

GLENN: Did you get a cupcake?

PAT: He pays $11,000 for this and he gets a cupcake?

GLENN: That's all he did?

PAT: Was the cupcake promised to you?

Dave: I actually got a big cookie, a piece of a big cookie.

PAT: Oh, what a rip off.

Dave: A big sacrifice personally to give to me.

GLENN: Did you, Jeffy? You sacrificed to give the big cookie?

PAT: Nice.

JEFF: I sacrificed a piece of my

GLENN: A piece of the big cookie.

PAT: You paid the most in the auction to follow Stu around, right? Be executive producer for a day?

Dave: Yeah, supposedly.

GLENN: Yes. He's not here, is he? That's pretty weird, isn't it? Now, you paid $11,000 to come here. For what exactly were you hoping that Stu would show you or do?

PAT: You don't know?

GLENN: You have no idea?

Dave: It's one of those days

GLENN: One of those days.

PAT: Are you independently wealthy? Do you have a whole bunch of, like a big piggy banks at home? How does that work?

GLENN: I mean, how do you pay for $11,000? I mean, usually, usually people are like---

PAT: Fat cats.

GLENN: I'm 74 years old and I've been how old are you?

Dave: 25.

GLENN: You are 25?

Dave: That's right.

GLENN: And you are in the army? We are paying our army far too much money. Dave just looks like, yeah. Oh, yeah, we're all rich. So you've done two tours of service?

Dave: That's correct.

PAT: Wow, thank you. Thank you.

GLENN: And you are from Alaska?

Dave: Yes.

PAT: Came all the way here for this.

GLENN: From Alaska.

Dave: Sure did.

PAT: Wow, wow.

GLENN: Disappointing now, isn't it?

Dave: Stu already gave me the refund policy.

GLENN: Really? No refunds. It really kind of stinks. So you've been over to Afghanistan or Iraq?

Dave: Both of them, sir.

PAT: Did you just call him sir? Wow, you are in the military.

GLENN: Call me ma'am. I've worked a long time to be called no, wait. That was no, I got that all screwed up.

PAT: Something else, yeah.

GLENN: How are things going over there?

Dave: overseas ?

GLENN: Yeah.

Dave: Not too bad. I was mostly support. So we didn't see too much of the action, both fronts. Yeah, things are cleaning up, especially the surge in Iraq when I first went over, was it '07? Recently in Afghanistan when they were building up there. So

GLENN: How's morale?

Dave: Morale? Not too bad. We were on the FOP. So we were, of course, had a lot of the accommodations that

PAT: A FOP is, for those who may not know?

Dave: Forward operating phase.

PAT: Not being the hip

GLENN: We're pretending.

PAT: Not being the hip military people we are, the FOP is, of course

Dave: Forward operating phase.

PAT: The FOP, we all call it the FOP, you know, for the simpletons who don't know that.

Dave: (Laughing).

GLENN: Well, they're more than simpletons. They're racist.

PAT: Yes, racist simpletons. Who hate inner city children and don't want them to go to school.

Dave: Yes.

PAT: That's all they are.

GLENN: Well, that's a dream of my father, yeah. So anyway, so that's going well for you. Now, you wrote a check for $11,000, which makes me a little nervous because you might be an operative. You know what I mean? Don't you think?

PAT: He might be.

GLENN: You might have gotten Soros money. Hey, kid, go in there; you look like you're one of them.

PAT: Harmless?

GLENN: You look totally harmless.

PAT: A clean cut guy.

GLENN: Yeah, you are talking in your sleeve now. I saw that. See? I know he's talking he doesn't even have sleeve, but he's talking into imaginary sleeves. But thank you so much for the donation because, you know, that goes to 8/28 and we have a lot of the guys like you that are going to be joining us and the first, at least I think it's going to be the first part of it. It may be the middle of it, I'm not sure. But at the appropriate point in the event, we're going to be doing quite a salute to you guys, and I thank you very much for your service.

PAT: Are you going to be at 8/28? Are you going to be able to make that?

Dave: I'm not going to be able to make it.

PAT: Get out. We're tired of looking at you. Get out.

GLENN: Are you going back? It's all the way, you're in Alaska.

Dave: There's speculation of us going back, but I won't be in the unit too long.

GLENN: Right. Oh, you are getting out? What are you going to do?

PAT: Now, you are from Alaska. Do you know Sarah Palin?

Dave: Oh, yes.

PAT: All you guys know each other.

GLENN: There's, what, four people and then a lot of, like, deer or elk.

PAT: Polar bears or something.

GLENN: Moose or something. I'm going up on vacation to Alaska this fall.

Dave: Yeah, I got the tickets for your show on September 11th. I'll be going to that.

GLENN: Holy cow.

PAT: This guy is made of money.

GLENN: All right. He's stalking me. What should I if you are going up to Alaska, what’s the one thing you should do?

VOICE: One thing, well

GLENN: Besides I thought bring a jacket would be one.

PAT: No, you don't need that anymore, with global warming. Glaciers are all melted, right?

Dave: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I called Todd Palin and I said, okay, Todd, you know, so what should we do when we're up there? And he said, oh, I'll call you back. So he calls me back and I couldn't talk to him and he's like, there's the greatest thing ever you can go glacier climbing. My assistant said

PAT: No.

GLENN: Todd, you are calling Glenn Beck. Glacier climbing?

PAT: Glacier climbing?

GLENN: Yeah, I'm going glacier climbing. Could we shoot a bear while glacier climbing? For the love of Pete.

PAT: Did you relate to him, I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of a couch, a living room?

GLENN: Here's what I want. I want a place that has a big window where I can look out at the glacier.

PAT: That would be nice.

GLENN: And then maybe eat bear stew that someone else has hunted, killed, chopped up and then made into a tasty stew.

JEFF: Oh, look honey, somebody's climbing the glacier.

GLENN: That's what I'm looking for. Man, you people in Alaska, all this outdoorsy stuff, it's way overrated. By the way, welcome, Dave.

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.
