Remember the Alamo (in a PC and neutral way only)!

Glenn doesn’t hide his love for Texas, but he had a couple of issues with the state on radio this morning. His concern came with schools in Texas starting to teach Arabic and culture classes, as well as a shift in the way the history of the Alamo is being taugh.

“ Some middle school parents were shocked this week when they found out that two schools in their Mansfield, Texas school district will soon be requiring Arabic language and culture courses.  How about we do American culture courses, what do you think?  Could we do that?” Glenn asked.

“Forcing it in their schools.  The foreign language assistance program grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.  As part of the $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Crosstimbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School,” Glenn read.

“Parents were caught off guard by the program, were surprised by the district telling them only in a meeting on Monday night between parents and superintendent.  DOE has identified Arabic as a language of the future.”

“ The language of the future.  And so they are going to learn about the Arabic language and its culture, similar to the way kids are now learning about Spanish and the Mexican culture,” Glenn said.

Pat then pointed out that schools are now teaching the history of The Alamo with a “neutral stance”.

“May I just ask a question?  What the hell is wrong with us!  What is happening to us?” Glenn asked.

“Let me give you something from William Travis that is honestly, I need to get a copy of this letter and I just want to have it framed in front of my desk.  William Travis was one of the heroes of the Alamo.  I want you to listen to this letter.”

Glenn read:

“My fellow citizens and compatriots,  I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion.  Otherwise the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken — I have answered their demand with a cannon shot, and our flag still waves proudly from the walls — I shall never surrender or retreat.

Then I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days.  If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country VICTORY OR DEATH. William Barret Travis.  PS:  The Lord is on our side.  When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn.  We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels.  Travis.”

“That letter should say everything.  That letter is from an independent American,” Glenn said.

“Later Davy Crockett comes after telling congress, you can all go to hell.  Why did he say that to congress?  Because here's a guy who fought for freedom and justice, American justice, equal justice.  He wasn't out and he said, no, the Indians are not our enemies.  Some of them are killers.  Some of them are not.  And we can make treaties with them.  We can make deals with them.  And we can live on the land together.  And he did.  And he gave his word.  And then Andrew Jackson gets into office.  And when Andrew Jackson gets into office, he decides manifest destiny:  Take the damn land from the Indians.”

“Now, before he says that, Davy Crockett is crazed because he's like, no, no, not Andrew Jackson.  No, not Andrew Jackson.  He runs to go to the house in Washington.  Here's a guy that if you ever read his actual words and transcript, you can barely understand what he's saying.  He's like, he's not going to give me one of them raccoon things and put it on my... and then we'll all have soup!  You're like, what the hell is he even talking about? He lost his first election.  Andrew Jackson stopped him.  He wins the next one and he goes to Washington and he said, I am at no man's bidding.  I bark for no man.  And he's tricked by Andrew Jackson to leave the state while they start this debate on the Indian removal act.  He finds out about it. He comes back and he reads congress the riot act and he says, how dare you.  How dare you.  What are you doing?  And he leaves.  And as he leaves congress, he looks at him and he says, you can all go to hell; I'm going to Texas.  Well, he was from Kentucky.  Why is he going to Texas?  Because he heard of a group of Americans that were standing for something that meant something.  Not even their own independence.  Another man's independence, a Mexican independence at the Alamo.  And he rides down and he joins Travis, where Travis has drawn a line in the sand.  This is where it comes from.  I'm going to draw a line in the sand.  We're all going to die.  You stand on the side with me and die for freedom.  If you stay on that side, that's okay.  Go away.  But the time to go is now.  I'm drawing a line in the sand.”

“This story and this letter and these men have the answer and now you're telling me not only are we teaching Arabic and culture when we can't even teach American culture.  We teach Mexican culture, but we are neutral on the Alamo?  When Texas becomes neutral on the Alamo, Texas will be over in one generation.  Texas can lead the way out because Texas understands independence and freedom.  Texas understands what the Alamo is all about.  I didn't need to read that letter from Travis.  Most Texans know it.  Most Americans don't and that's the problem.”

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."
