GUTFELD: Hey, there. How are you?

GLENN: Very good. Greg is from Red Eye at airs at 3:00 o'clock in the morning eastern time, midnight on the West Coast. I don't know if they do that because people are high on the West Coast, generally, and so they can handle it a little bit more, a little earlier.

GUTFELD: Perhaps.

GLENN: Perhaps.

GUTFELD: I don't know if there was any theory behind the actual creation of the show.

GLENN: Really?

GUTFELD: Yeah.

GLENN: I've been on the show before. You never invited me back, but that's a different story.

GUTFELD: That's just because you got too busy.

GLENN: Is that what it is?

GUTFELD: You just stopped answering my calls.

GLENN: So, Greg?

GUTFELD: Yes.

GLENN: You say you want to open up a gay bar next to the mosque at Ground Zero.

GLENN: We think that might be a little, a little much.

GUTFELD: Yeah.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

GUTFELD: Well, I don't know. Is the idea of a gay bar next to a mosque any crazier than building a mosque near Ground Zero?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay. All right. That's a very good point.

GUTFELD: That's one of the exercises that I'm trying to complete here.

GLENN: Yeah.

GUTFELD: I tell my friends this. Like, you -- I think you're kind of the same way. I'm not against building a mosque. If it's done legally, if the money is coming from the right place, private property, it's good.

GLENN: Yeah.

GUTFELD: But it's like when I was a kid and I would irritate my sister, I would stand really close and run my finger in circles in front of her eyeballs, that's legal but it's annoying. It's annoying. It's kind of like what the mosque people are doing by, you know, building it and kind of ignoring out sensibilities. They're just annoying us. It's not against the law. Can't they exercise some good manners? And in a way, that's what I'm saying with this --

GLENN: So, how much money would you need to raise to open ?

GUTFELD: You know, I've looked around the area. You know, I'm a terrible businessman, Glenn. I'm not like you. I'm barely scraping by. I live in a box, you know, under an overpass.

GLENN: Somehow I doubt that.

GUTFELD: I have buddies that open bars in the city. So, I called them up and asked them. They said around a million dollars, and I've also looked at space in that area. Again, casually on Google because I'm very lazy and I couldn't tell if there was anything available but there are a lot of bars that look like they're available in the sense that they are extremely empty and depressing looking.

GLENN: Right. But you have a multilevel bar idea, don't you? I mean, this is a pretty big bar.

GUTFELD: Well, the thing is I want it to be all inclusive, like, you know, where everybody can come. It's all about building communication and tolerance. So, I think that there should be two floors, heaven and halal and halal, the first floor would be all halal food, which is the kind of food that Muslims can eat and then the second floor would be heaven, which you have 72 virgin drinks because alcohol is not permitted by the Muslim faith. I would also like to have another floor where you can drink, so people could go there and have an alcoholic drink who aren't necessarily Muslim.

GLENN: So, that would be heaven, halal, and Infidel Zone or --

GUTFELD: Yes.

GLENN: That is what it would be? The more I think about it, I'm really kind of partial to You Mecca Me Hot.

GUTFELD: Yeah, yeah. I have to give credit to -- you know, Twitter, when the idea came out.

GLENN: Really?

GUTFELD: People just started posting --

GLENN: What’s your Twitter account? Maybe you can get some more suggestions.

GUTFELD: It's at Greg Gutfeld, but if you look at the hash tag, Gutfeld bar names hash tag on Twitter, you will see there are thousands of them and they were just coming up like crazy. Some of them you can't repeat because they are offensive -- but then there are others --

GLENN: But you don't mean this to be offensive?

GUTFELD: No, no, no. -- basically this really is an exercise in tolerance.

PAT: You're building bridges

GUTFELD: Exactly. That's what I'm here for. This is what New York City is all about. There should be a gay bar near a mosque.

GLENN: Right. Now, somebody would say you're building bridges. Someone else would say you're also lighting the finished end on fire before you finish that bridge.

GUTFELD: Lighting the what? What did you say?

GLENN: Lighting the finished part of that bridge on fire. Greg, I appreciate it. We'll look for a -- the opening of the new gay bar

GUTFELD: Yes. Absolutely. You can come on premiere night.

GLENN: All right. Okay.

GUTFELD: I'll have a roped off area.

GLENN: Okay. Thanks a lot. Greg Gutfeld from Red Eye and the FOX News Channel.

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.
