GLENN: Well, thar she blows. There it is, Governor Spitzer. May we go back to just a few moments? Because the network turned off my microphone. I'm just saying. When I say the network, I mean Stu and Dan.

STU: And it was a brilliant decision by us because you couldn't stop the entire time.

GLENN: No, it wasn't. No, it wasn't. The people want to hear... I'm doing the people's work! Could we take it one more time with my microphone open?

STU: Yes, we can.

GLENN: Yeah. His wife looks like she hasn't slept in, oh, I don't know, a month.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: In the past few days I have begun to atone for my private failings with my wife Silda, my children.

GLENN: Yes.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And my entire family.

GLENN: Right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: The remorse I feel will always be with me.

GLENN: I'm sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the love and compassion they have shown me.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: From those to whom much is given much is expected.

GLENN: Could we stop?

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have been given much. The love of my family.

GLENN: Yes.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: The faith and trust of the people of New York. And the chance to lead this state.

GLENN: With really hot sex with hookers.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I'm really sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me.

GLENN: Stop. You didn't even come close to living up to what was expected. What was expected? Just to do a good job. Just to do a good job.

STU: I don't think that was expected. He's a politician. I think if you show up to work occasionally and not do anything illegal. How about that? Can we get that out of you?

GLENN: "I'm sorry I didn't live up to it but it was a high mountain to climb." I mean, you wanted me for four years not to have sex with hookers? What, are you crazy? Do you know how hard that is? They're hookers, man!

STU: They're --

GLENN: They're great!

STU: They're so good at it.

GLENN: I was doing investigations on them and I was putting them in jail and I'm like, what am I doing? They're great! Oh, I'm sorry I couldn't live up to your high standards.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: To every New Yorker.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize.

GLENN: Stop. You look so sincere now, too. Doesn't he look heartbroken?

STU: Really he --

GLENN: The guy has absolutely no emotion.

STU: Yeah. And you are right about his wife. His wife, A, looks like she hasn't slept in a month and, B, has not one little, like indication of emotion. She just looks absolutely stone faced.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? Stu.

STU: Yeah?

GLENN: You've got the perfect marriage.

STU: I would agree.

GLENN: That's the look of a woman who's ready to kill you! That's not -- there's no -- Dan, look at her!

DAN: You know, she gave up her own career she gave up. I forget what she was going to be, like a doctor or lawyer or something. She gave it up.

GLENN: Not a hooker.

DAN: Apparently that disappointed.

GLENN: If she would have become a hooker, everything -- it was a perfect relationship.

STU: Who is at fault here?

GLENN: She is! All right. I mean, Dan, you look at her face. There's emotion there, right? That's, "I'm going to kill you."

DAN: Well, let me put it this way.

GLENN: If it was legal in this city to carry a gun, you'd be a dead man.

DAN: If her eyes had heat-rays, his head would be melted off like the guy from Indiana Jones.

GLENN: She may be thinking to herself, heat-rays out of my eyes, heat-rays out of my eyes.

STU: I feel like it's a woman who wants to kill her husband but trying to play the part of --

GLENN: Oh, you know what it is. No, haven't you ever seen old movies?

STU: How old?

GLENN: Like in the 1940s and stuff.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: What he did is because, you know, he's the husband. So -- and she's playing the wife and so he had a doctor come over and say, I just think we should give her these pills, just give her these pills. It's going to be a tough time for a few days. And so she's probably all doped up. I saw it in the movies in the Forties. They gave her some sort of drugs that will make her not kill him.

STU: For the time being.

GLENN: Just a theory from a movie in the Forties. Go ahead, Dan.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I look at my time as governor.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: With a sense of what might have been.

GLENN: Stop. I could have gotten more hookers in!

GOVERNOR SPITZER: But I also know --

GLENN: Yes.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: That as a public servant I and the remarkable people with whom I worked have --

GLENN: Stop. We don't include the hookers here, do we? I mean, why not. They were incredible people, too.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- accomplished a great deal.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: There is much more to be done.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And I cannot allow my private failings to disrupt the people's work.

GLENN: Stop. The people. The people's work! There's just, I can't allow it. I'm doing it for you. I'm quitting for you. It has nothing to do with me. I'm quitting for you.

STU: I like that there is much more to be done and there is many more to be done. I think that's kind of like the general message we're getting here.

GLENN: I think so. I believe. I believe you're right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Over the course of my public life.

GLENN: Yes.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have insisted, I believe correctly, that people, regardless of their position or power --

GLENN: Stop. Eliot, from hereon out no more use of the word "Position." Just saying that we need to have a talk at language class with you. Not being politically correct but you will never be able to say many words without invoking laughter.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- responsibility for their conduct. I can and will --

GLENN: And will.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- ask no less of myself.

GLENN: Ask not.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: For this reason I am resigning from the office of governor at Lieutenant Governor Paterson's request, the resignation will be effective Monday, March 17, a date that he believes will permit an orderly transition. I go forward with the belief --

GLENN: Yes.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- as others have said that as human beings, our greatest glory consists not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Again not a phrase you should use, rising again. Probably -- I'm just, I'm just saying it might -- hey, you can put the instatabs and it happens right away. You know what I mean? Or you can take -- I mean, just get yourself to the hospital if you rise again and that happens to last more than four hours.


 

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.
