Glenn Beck: Left attacking people of faith

GLENN: Let's I want to talk to you a little bit about now, what is the name of this thing, Pat?

PAT: Oh, this seven mountain man thing?

GLENN: Yeah, the 7 Mountain Mandate. Why did you find it? Okay, good, good, he's got the sources. He's got the sources. It was some guy that, it was some preacher, I don't know who he was, and he said I mean, why don't you just take a chalkboard out? He went to this big writing tablet and he just started drawing these mountains and he said that the problem with the world right now is that there are seven mountains and one is the media and one is government and one is, I guess family life, I don't know. I don't remember what all the seven mountains were. And one of them is church. And church has just said, we're just going to occupy this little mountain. But that's not what we're supposed to do. As church people or people of faith, we're not supposed to just occupy that pew on Sunday or Saturday. We're not supposed to do that. We're supposed to be children of God. We are supposed to believe in something. And those things are supposed to permeate our life, and we're supposed to effect the nation as a whole. It is really what our founders did. Our founders, there was no separation of values and principles that you got in church. Those things you lived. I'm getting a lot of mail from people that are saying that I'm being pessimistic right now because I'm saying there's nothing that's going to solve this but God. All right. May I, just ask a question? Since when is God the last resort? Since when is God going, no, no, I got it, I got it, stop with your God thing, I got it! If I don't have it, then we'll call God. When? Doesn't it say on our money "In God we trust"? Don't we put him first? Isn't that the point? Isn't that the point of why I believe we got here is because we no longer put him first in our life? Thou shalt not have other gods before me, and that includes you as a person. As somebody who has driven off the track, as somebody who has just destroyed my own life, do you know why I destroyed my own life? Because I knew better. Because I'll do it my way. I knew what my life was supposed to be. I knew where I was supposed to go, et cetera, et cetera. No, I don't. Have no idea.

Can I tell you something? And many in this audience will probably agree. We were having a conversation in the hallway and both the guys said, I don't think we should have this conversation. And I'm going to have it anyway. I think I'm possibly ending my career right now because the day I decided and I told Stu and everybody on the staff. I said, you know, the day we really start talking about God, you'll know that I think that we're in real trouble, and I hoped that we would never get there where I had to just be real open and honest and say, get on your knees and pray. The day I told the staff, do you remember, Stu? The day I told everybody we're going down the God road is the day that I had a very expensive research study done on this program and they came back and they said, your audience loves you, your audience will tolerate your temporary insanity here and there and they're fine and blah, blah blah, blah blah, they love the show, et cetera, et cetera... but. And they said this right at the very beginning: The only thing your audience won't tolerate is you talking about God.

STU: Wait a minute. Don't characterize the audience like that. That's not true.

GLENN: What did they say?

STU: They showed a level of being uncomfortable with really overt God stuff they were behind faith, a lot of them very religious.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But uncomfortable at times when you got really overly religious in that really personal religious sort of way that you do.

GLENN: Which we do all the time now.

STU: Pretty much, yes.

GLENN: Yes. We do all the time now.

STU: Pretty much, yes.

GLENN: And so and I looked at the guys and I said, well, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to waste anybody's time or money here, but that is where we're headed. And that's what we're doing now. And we do talk about God openly, et cetera, et cetera. And so I don't know if this is going to work or not. But it's not about it working or not. It's not about a business decision. It's about doing what you feel you are supposed to do. I do what I feel I'm supposed to do. And that sometimes means success, sometimes that means failure. It will always mean success for your soul but sometimes in the world it means failure. I don't know. I just know I'll be where I'm supposed to be if I just keep doing those things. Media Matters is now and the left is starting to smear me because they are saying that Glenn Beck says God talks to him. I got news for ya, Arianna. God's talking to you, too. God's talking to everybody. And he's not telling me what you should do. He's not telling me what you, Arianna Huffington, should do. He's telling me what I should do, what I should say. He can tell everybody else whether they should follow or not.

PAT: You are saying God speaks to His children? (Laughing). Oh what parent speaks to their children? --

PAT: I mean, you tell them one thing and then they are on their own the rest of their lives.

GLENN: I got news for you.

PAT: You don't just continue to talk to them.

GLENN: We're all prophets of our own life and our own family.

PAT: Whoa!

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: Whoa!

GLENN: You should listen to that still, small voice for your 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.
