The end of the world is still coming

I flipped on Family Radio on Saturday night while in the drive thru at Sonic (I heart diet cherry limeades), and the station was still on the air despite the fact that the apocalypse should have already come and gone.  They were running a recorded show from Harold Camping, their fearless leader, from 26 years ago when he discovered there was no, absolutely no, justification for divorce, including but not limited to adultery, “fornication”, physical violence…attempted murder…rape…pillaging…genocide…(I mean if you mistakenly married Pol Pot—there’s no out at all?  None?)

Anyway, despite strong opposition from my wife, I waited until the top of the hour where I was hoping to hear the apocalypse addressed in some way.  Unfortunately, no luck.  However, it was nice to hear the announcer of a prerecorded show that was supposed to be airing after the apocalypse, previewing the episode that would be airing next week.

It’s interesting to read the post-Apocalyptic coverage though.  You have the media with their spin:

For atheists, this could be an “I told you so” moment.

But that would be too easy. Almost too easy, anyway.

Instead of gloating, some atheists hoisted beers and called the latest failed prediction of Family Radio’s Harold Camping a lesson in human behavior.

“We know he’s not the first or the last who’s going to do this,” said Mike Gillis, a host and producer of the Seattle-area radio show Ask An Atheist on KLAY 1180 AM.

Okay—this is not an “I told you so” moment for atheists.  No Christian outside this incredibly limited group actually took this dope seriously.  We made fun of him and his prediction incessantly on the radio show.  I mean, he’s already done this before and failed in 1994.  No one thought the end of the world was actually coming.

On the other side, the Blaze has video of how Christians in the area reacted to it.  Which was to walk to their building and try to find followers of Camping and console them.  They don’t mock or insult them, they just point out that predictions of false teachings are all over the bible.  They weren’t there to insult, but instead to help.  Remember, Campings's followers are a group of people who just spent their entire life savings on a scam artist/crazy person.  There’s no benefit  in recruitment, other than actually caring.  In a way, this is an "I told you so" moment for Christians.  They say that they actually care, and they actually do.

Out of all of this, that’s a nice moment of realizing how you’re probably supposed to react to something like this.  Of course, mockery was fun too.

By the way, the end of the world is actually in October.  Camping only predicted that they'd disappear in May, but the REAL end is in October.  So, we've got that going for us.  Which is nice.

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.
