GLENN: I have to apologize to you. Last night I was doing the television show and I had moms from all over the area in the studio audience, and we had a conversation, a long converse afterwards about we were talking about inflation, and I don't know if anybody saw the program last night about inflation and food storage which, I mean, I honestly, I don't know I don't know how long, you know, the TV show can survive with the show that I'm with the show that I'm putting on every day now, and wait until you see next year. I can't imagine how long it can last just because I know what people are going to say about it and I know how the press is going to treat it and I know you know, I have no idea why anybody would watch it because it is so it's becoming more and more radical. For television, I should say. But we're having a conversation and when I asked on television last night about inflation, I asked them, I said, so you're all moms? You go out and you've seen the government says no inflation is happening. And they all laughed. And I said who thinks inflation is happening and who's seen it? And they all raised their hand. So we talked about it after the show a bit, and their concerns are the same as mine. Now, these are just moms who are out, and they're seeing it and they know. And one of them raises their hands and said, Glenn, tell me about the farm bill. And I said, quite honestly I'm looking into the farm bill, I haven't had a chance I don't know how many e mails I have sent off to my research staff: I've got to know about the farm bill, tell me about the farm bill. And I just, I haven't it's my fault. I haven't been on top of this thing because I'm working on 600 other projects. Overwhelm the system, if you will. And I come to you to apologize that I did not pay attention enough to this farm bill and get this research done fast enough, and last night I had our researchers working through the night and got a briefing about, what, 6:30 this morning on it and because last night cloture happened in the Senate. It has already passed the House and it is just, they voted to cut off debate yesterday in the Senate, and it passed with 70 votes in the Senate. It will pass in the Senate. They made some changes to it. It has to come back to the House. This is an extraordinarily, extraordinarily innocuous thousand page bill. It is all full of things that just have to happen just to keep your food safe. "In order to keep you safe, we just have to have a few more regulations, but that's it. Oh, this Death Star is fully operational."

It is something that you could read, and I have not read it but I have in fact, during the show I will get more of the summaries on it. My research staff says, Glenn, it is Cass Sunstein Central, it is completely fine. If you don't look at the government and say that there are revolutionaries in there, if you don't look at the country and say, hey, there's inflation out there, and you trust that everything is great, it's the Homeland Security bill. But there's nothing wrong with Homeland Security, is there? No, this is food patriot bill, that's all this is, the food PATRIOT Act. That's all it is. Aren't you a patriot? Don't you want safe food?

May I ask, why the rush? Oh, by the way, first of all, I believe, I believe we got healthcare at Christmastime, did we not? We got healthcare at Christmastime. Did we get another one at Christmastime, too?

STU: The light bulb thing.

GLENN: Oh, the light bulb thing happened at Christmastime. And then now our food safety at Christmastime. Did we not get the PATRIOT Act at Christmastime, too, didn't we? Or it was right around the holidays.

PAT: I'll bet it was because it probably took them

GLENN: September 11th, it took them a while.

PAT: Took them a while to get that together and then they probably

GLENN: Or did it take a while? Can you find out when it passed? Did it take them a while?

STU: Yeah, I'm looking at it now.

GLENN: You know, we just thought

PAT: Who wrote the PATRIOT Act?

GLENN: Yeah, could we find that out?

PAT: That happened a little too fast, now that I think of it.

GLENN: Now that I think of it, it did.

PAT: Was that the Apollo Alliance?

GLENN: Seriously let's find out. Because you know who wrote the farm bill, or you know who's funding the farm bill, the major funding behind it is the Pew Center.

STU: What do you mean the funding of the farm bill? What does that mean?

GLENN: The people who are pushing, the real money pushing this thing.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Now, I don't have any evidence that they wrote it or anything else, but that is exactly the way the Tides Center works. They write the bill. These organizations like the Apollo Alliance through the Tides Center, they write the bill and then they give it. So the bill's already done. I'd like to know the origins of this bill. I know the major money behind it is the Pew Center, which is an uber left radical group that has been cleansed that everybody's like, Pew? Oh, just... no, they're just into education. Oh.

STU: Aren't they the polling guys?

GLENN: I don't know if they are the polling guys.

So in this, the reason why they got cloture yesterday was because some of the Republicans were concerned. They were concerned that this might affect your garden at the back of your house or small farms. Because small farmers just can't handle all of this money. So don't worry about that. They have written in there that, okay, small farms and houses aren't going to be affected. Oh, well, I feel so much better. Just like when the president promised that no money would be going for abortions. I feel so much better.

Now, look, here's what I'm telling you. On this farm bill, you can read this bill and if you read it with the eyes of stupid people, if you read it with the eyes of people quite honestly like Orrin Hatch. Orrin, I love ya. You're a good man. But what are you doing anymore? People like Orrin Hatch who will look at this thing and say, "No, well, you know, it's not 1955 anymore. We are not it's not 1975, it's not 1985, it's not 1995." I'm sorry for an outburst on Orrin Hatch, but I just got the list of all the people that voted for cloture yesterday, and he's one of them.

PAT: Maybe you should give him a call and ask him why.

STU: Yeah, yeah, like to hear his case on it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I know his case on this. He's a guy who is still playing the game as if it is as if you can trust everybody. He's a decent man, but unfortunately you're not playing the game against decent people. You are playing a game against radicals! Show me the country that has a safer food supply than us, can you, please? Who has a safer food supply? Is it Sweden? You know what? When we reduce the population of America down to the size of Sweden, we'll get a band of really hot blonds, call them Abba and we can emulate their food supply as well. Won't that be great? 350 million people have to be fed on our food supply. Name the country that has a safer food supply than us.

PAT: I don't think there is anybody.

GLENN: So then why are we why are we panicked on this? Why? Why do we have to do this at Christmas?

PAT: They will tell you the spinach scare, they will tell you the lettuce scare. That's what they'll tell you. That's what they'll tell you.

STU: They've had a decent amount of recalls lately and we need to make sure we improve safety.

GLENN: How about the dog food? How about the dog food that has lead that comes from China?

STU: Yeah, exactly, that's why we need more regulation. We need to make sure that we can check all this stuff.

GLENN: Yes, that's right. How much money is this going to cost? And who pays for it in the end? It's not magical fairy money that shoots out of Geithner's butt. It doesn't exist. So it's passed on to the consumer. You have people that are living on the edge right now, living on the edge. You have seniors that are not going to get a raise in Social Security. You have military who they're now talking about making sure that they don't get a raise, either. The military is the only group of people in this country who are doing their damn job in the government. You name the you name the group of people that are doing their job, in the government that are paid by you and I through tax dollars. Military. That's it. You're kidding me, right? You're going to take these guys, many of them who live on the poverty level already and you're going to have inflation go up, you're going to deny it, which will force their families onto food stamps. Inflation is going up. Then you're going to do something that causes the price of food to go up even faster? What, are you out of your mind? No, no. This is what Stalin did. This is what they all do. This is what FDR did. "Oh, we're going to fix the food thing here in America. You know, there's just too much food." That's why they slaughtered millions of pigs. And then what happened? And then we had a then we had trouble with food. Oh, gee, we can't get any food. People are starving!

Look, if you want to be somebody who agrees and says, you know what, no, it's still 1995, it's still 1985, it's still 1945, it's still 1905, you go right ahead. You go right ahead. I'm not one of them. I'm sorry. There's nothing in this food bill that if you're dealing with Jesus Christ and his disciples as congress and the president, then I'm sure we're fine. I'm sure we're fine. I happen to believe that we're a little farther away from Jesus and a little closer to Beelzebub, and I don't trust them. And I don't want them anywhere near my food supply, thank you very much. This is Cass Sunstein needing new dials. Oh, he'll make sure that you're not eating meat. Remember, he's an animal activist. He will make sure you're not eating meat. How? Well, we'll just make it a little more difficult for the food process to happen with beef. Oh, these slaughter houses need to be cleaned up. Oh, you've got to have more regulation on the slaughter houses. Price of beef goes up! So you're not able to afford beef or chicken.

How many times have we heard about the chicken processing plants and how horrible they are? Well, now, Cass Sunstein can help, a guy who doesn't want you eating chicken! "Oh, well, that's fine. We'll just nudge. We'll nudge. We'll make it a little more expensive."

Gang, please, please. The website GlennBeck.com, all of the information we had on food storage is there. 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?

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.
