Dr. Ablow and Glenn on the importance of courage

People across the country are finding inner strength with help from Glenn and Dr. Keith Ablow’s new book, The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life.

One caller, Ronald, is a recovering heroin addict who received a copy of the book from his father. He called to thank Glenn and Dr. Ablow, and to share how the book had helped him. He said, “It's helping me to basically follow my breadcrumbs and follow my gut instinct because there are a couple of things that I follow my gut on since I've been out and they worked out real well for me.  That's actually how I got my job because I didn't ‑‑ I happened to notice a place and follow my gut to go in there and I ended up getting my job.”

Another caller, Barbara, found insight into some of the delinquent teenagers she tries to help through her work. She said, “ I just started reading your book The 7 and I got to Page 15 and I was just stunned because you start out by saying here that empathy, human empathy is what lets us identify with others and do right by them?  And I work with a group that helps young teenagers who have been caught shoplifting and similar things, trying to keep them from being incarcerated.  And the social workers have said to me the big thing they find is that these teenagers lack any empathy.”

Glenn then welcomed Dr. Ablow to the show, and the two discussed the book.

Glenn started the conversation by saying that not everyone who would pick up the book are at the “bottom”, so what can they gain from the book.

“People have more in common than separates them.  And so where you are on the spectrum matters less than that you start moving forward.  So we just heard from somebody who found himself addicted to heroin, trying to avoid pain.  But there's courage needed for every step forward.  Even if you're trying to become more successful and you can't seem to do that.  That may be because you haven't noted, as we do in the book, that courage includes elements of fear and doubt.  If you've been waiting for just a clear run at the next job promotion or you're changing your career to something you love, don't wait.  Understand that fear and doubt will remain with you as you take that step.  That's what courage is all about.”

How does this tie into changing the country?

Dr. Ablow said, “Here's the thing.  Ultimately people need that pole star we talk about in the book.  You know, in Legend, the pole star being that mythical star around which all the other planets turn.  They need that in their gut.  It's very tough to take people down a road toward darkness or one that doesn't include liberty if in their hearts they have already taken the journey that we're suggesting.  Because if you have courage and you believe that you should do the things that your gut tells you are right, that will empower you and other people, you become somebody who's tough to herd.  You know, it's tough to herd cats and it's tough to herd people who believe that they're worthwhile and that they should follow their hearts. “

Glenn used the historical example of teaching a slave to read to support this point. Glenn said, “It was against the law to teach a slave how to read because once you could read, you'd realize, wait a minute, I can learn; wait a minute, I'm not an animal; wait a minute, they're not superior; wait a minute, I have a right.  And it all comes undone.”

Dr. Ablow also discussed how individuals ultimately have to make the choice to change themselves. He said, “The bottom line is you can give people your counsel, you can go to the ends of the Earth to resist your addiction with them.  I mean, I encourage parents go to court.  Get some kind of substituted judgment.  And if you can, put your son in detox if he won't go himself and he's at death's door.  But ultimately, ultimately you have to find that path yourself.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
