Sleeping with Dictators

With all the chaos going on in Egypt right now, Glenn wondered out loud what he would do if he were President of the United States. What would he do if he inherited this problem, much in the same way the President Obama has. The radio crew discussed what has led Egypt up to this point and what would be the best possible outcomes.

“I've got to support Mubarak, probably, at this point. I mean, to keep the peace with Israel, it's kind of paramount and I also don't like the alternatives in Egypt. So, you know, you're looking at an Iranian situation, although I hear MSNBC commentators saying, there is a big difference here and this is a secular revolution. Ah-ha, yeah. That's why the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to take over the nation, because it's so secular. So, I don't know. At this point I think you almost have to support Mubarak,” Pat suggested.

Glenn agreed that the Muslim Brotherhood establishing control of Egypt would be dangerous for democracy and the Middle East.

“Here's just [The Muslim Brotehrhood’s] founding statements. The Brotherhood seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate spanning the entire Muslim world. It aspires to make Islamic Sharia law the soul basis of jurisprudence and governance. Towards this purpose encapsulated in The Brotherhood's militant credo God is our objective, Quran is constitution, and the prophet is our leader, struggle is our way and death for the sake of God is our highest aspiration,” Glenn read.

Despite their radical beliefs, Elbaradei, leader of the opposition in Egypt, has stated they are not a radical group and are as much a part of the Egypt political scene as the Marxists.

“I was driving home yesterday and I was thinking, Everything has been solvable up to this point. We can solve our deficit problem. Now, we're going to run into trouble because, as we solve that problem, people are going to have to be shut out of government services, but if we have our values and principles together and if we focus on faith, hope, and charity, we can help each other through it,” Glenn said.

But Glenn said that there are also going to be problems, like Egypt, which are so big they seem unsolvable, and the only solutions involve sacrificing principles. Essentially, you’ll be presented with a false solution, where you have to choose the lesser of two evils. “The false solution here is that if you don't have one, you're going to have the other and so you have to pick -- you have to pick, you know, Mubarak,” Glenn said.

“What we've done is we have started this pattern and, believe it or not, we started it with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, to where we took these dictators and we said it's better for us and it's really better for the whole world or the whole region if we just get in bed with these dictators and we started the idea that, well, it's better than the alternative. Why is it better than the alternative?” Glenn asked.

“Well, for the last 40 years, we were in bed with Mubarak and they said to us at the time you have to get into bed with Mubarak. Otherwise, it's going to end in Islamic regime. Well, here we are again. Nothing's changed. Nothing's gotten better. The only thing that has changed is our image has decayed and our values are gone because now the people in Egypt hate our guts because we say we're for peace and we say the Israelis aren't bad people and we aren't bad people. Well, why would they believe us?”

Glenn said Americans are making the same mistakes in making choices between our own leaders, as we are told to vote for one person because at least they won’t be as bad as another. “You've got to vote for this person, otherwise, you're going to get that person. And we've said, I don't want either of them and look where we are. I mean, we're doing the same thing in everything. We're making a choice between bad or worse. Why?”

Glenn said the real solutions involve making commitments to one another to stay true to our principles. “

With firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. A lot of people will roll their eyes and say that's not a solution. I think it is,” he concluded.

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."
