GLENN: I want to talk to those people who have listened and you may not have moved on my words before. I talked to a woman yesterday. She said, Glenn, my husband and I have listened to you for a long time. She said, I was listening to you one day with three years ago when you said, please, if you're in the stock market, please get your money out; someone must have something remaining, please get your money out. She said, we listened to you then. She said, I heard it and I was going to talk to my husband. My husband came in the door and he said, honey, I need to talk to you, I just listened to Glenn Beck and he said get the money out and it just sounds right to me, we've got to get our money out. She said, you saved, you saved our money. Let me tell you something. I didn't. Because that call went out to millions of people and very few people actually acted on it. Those who did saved their money. I could be wrong. I'm not an economist, I'm not a I'm not an expert on society or religion. I'm not an expert on anything. I come to you as a, just a regular Schmo that quite honestly is an undereducated man. I'm a self educated man. I am an entertainer. No matter what the press wants to use that as a smear, that's who I am. That's what I've always done with my life. But I'm talking to you now as a citizen and as a dad.

I want to give you what I have told you in the last four years. When it comes to the economy, I told you that we weren't headed for a recession; we're headed for a depression, the ultimate depression. I have told you, be very careful with your money. I have told you, I don't know why anybody has their money in the stock market. It's bogus! I have told you and gotten so much heat for saying that the Dow would end up, if it was lucky, at 5,000. I have told you, make a decision on your home. I've told you that I've been trying to sell my home now for, what, two years? But I live in the Northeast in town where it's 95% Wall Street. I have friends who built, who built a $5 million home. That's what it cost them to build it, a $5 million home. They sold it for 1.5. Almost every home in my neighborhood is up for sale. I told you things weren't going to get better; buckle up. I told you that the rich are getting out.

Now let me give you the headlines from today. All of those things I have been hammered for. I told you these things three years ago. I've also told you I don't know the timing of things. I can see over the horizon on some things, I can see the general direction of where we're headed, but I don't know when it's going to happen. It could happen tomorrow, it could happen five years from now. I don't know. I also, I also don't have any idea why I have this ability to see over the horizon other than it's my job. We all have our job, and you in your job, no matter what it is, it's a calling. You have the ability to listen, if you want to be in California, to the universe, or listen to the word of God for your calling in your family in your personal life. Well, my calling is to be on the radio every day and comment about what's happening. And quite honestly if it hadn't have been for my bottoming out, if I hadn't lost everything, if I hadn't have lost my friends, my family, my fortune, my house, everything, if I hadn't have lost everything, and the most important thing was my good name, my ability to look a person in the eye and say, no, really, this is true, and have anybody believe me. If I hadn't have lost everything, I wouldn't have been to a place to where I said, I will never tell a lie because all I want is someone to believe me again when I say something that is true. When you do that, life becomes very easy because you no longer have to keep track of what you said, but extraordinarily hard. Because you say things that you don't want to say. You say things that are unpopular. Is there enough money in the world? Is there enough fame in the world for someone to put themselves in a position to where they know how they'll be remembered in history and it won't be good? Is there enough money? Is there enough fame? The answer to that is no. How evil and irresponsible would I be to have the platform that I have. What kind of monster would I have to be to have the platform that I have and say these things if I didn't believe them? How insane would I be? There are those within the sound of my voice that say, damn right, just as insane as I think you are. There is not enough money and fame for me to live the rest of my life with people like you saying that about me to my children! So maybe you're the one that might be a little misguided. Because it's those voice that have been telling you not to listen to me because the Dow at 5,000 is crazy, because a total collapse of our system is out of you've got to be out of your mind to believe that! We're America! That will never happen! That we're in a depression, we're headed for a depression, not a recession. "That's crazy talk! He's fear mongering!" Those are the voices that are controlling most of this country right now.

Here are the headlines today. Worries about recovery deepen. Hindenburg Omen, which you heard about on this program. Hindenburg Omen happened again last week. The Hindenburg Omen means that there's a 77% chance that the market will correct itself by at least 5%. The Hindenburg Omen, when it happens in September or October, has been the has been the crash of 19, what was it, 1989, the crash of 1929? Does October or September come to mind? It happened again last week. If it happens once, there's a 77% chance of a crash. If it happens twice, all bets are off, as I told you two weeks ago. It's happened twice, and it almost happened three times, in the last ten days.

Next headline: Investors are scattering to safety. Next one: Drop in home prices renew pricing fears. The largest drop in home prices the largest drop in home sales since LBJ. Next headline: Dow faces bouncy ride to 5,000! Next headline: CNBC, economy in depression, not recession.

Look , if you have listened before and haven't acted, maybe you have regretted that. If you have listened before and have reacted because you've seen the pattern, you've seen that I'm not right all the time, but I've got a pretty good track record. I have a much better track record than Joe Biden who says we're moving in the right direction. I beg of you, I beg of you, please, please, please listen to what I have to say today. Please.

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.
