Glenn also talked about Google and his concerns about the tech company which is so integrated into the fabric of our lives. Why the concern? Some of Glenn's reasons are outlined below:

ERIC SCHMIDT ON GOOGLE – FROM WSJ INTERVIEW 2010

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704901104575423294099527212.html

§ The day is coming when the Google search box—and the activity known as Googling—no longer will be at the center of our online lives. Then what? "We're trying to figure out what the future of search is," Mr. Schmidt acknowledges. "I mean that in a positive way. We're still happy to be in search, believe me. But one idea is that more and more searches are done on your behalf without you needing to type."

§ "I actually think most people don't want Google to answer their questions," he elaborates. "They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next."

§ Let's say you're walking down the street. Because of the info Google has collected about you, "we know roughly who you are, roughly what you care about, roughly who your friends are." Google also knows, to within a foot, where you are. Mr. Schmidt leaves it to a listener to imagine the possibilities: If you need milk and there's a place nearby to get milk, Google will remind you to get milk. It will tell you a store ahead has a collection of horse-racing posters, that a 19th-century murder you've been reading about took place on the next block.

§ Says Mr. Schmidt, a generation of powerful handheld devices is just around the corner that will be adept at surprising you with information that you didn't know you wanted to know. "The thing that makes newspapers so fundamentally fascinating—that serendipity—can be calculated now. We can actually produce it electronically," Mr. Schmidt says.

§ …Google takes a similarly generous view of its own motives on the politically vexed issue of privacy. Mr. Schmidt says regulation is unnecessary because Google faces such strong incentives to treat its users right, since they will walk away the minute Google does anything with their personal information they find "creepy."

§ Really? Some might be skeptical that a user with, say, a thousand photos on Picasa would find it so easy to walk away. Or a guy with 10 years of emails on Gmail. Or a small business owner who has come to rely on Google Docs as an alternative to Microsoft Office. Isn't stickiness—even slightly extortionate stickiness—what these Google services aim for?

§  Mr. Schmidt is surely right, though, that the questions go far beyond Google. "I don't believe society understands what happens when everything is available, knowable and recorded by everyone all the time," he says. He predicts, apparently seriously, that every young person one day will be entitled automatically to change his or her name on reaching adulthood in order to disown youthful hijinks stored on their friends' social media sites.  "I mean we really have to think about these things as a society," he adds. "I'm not even talking about the really terrible stuff, terrorism and access to evil things," he says.

Schmidt on Soros

§  CEO ERIC SHMIDT “MY VIEW OF SOROS IS THAT HE IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TODAY IN TERMS OF IMPACTS HE’S HAD”

§  GOOGLE/SOROS HAVE $17 MILLION INTO A VENTURE WITH OMIDYAR NETWORK TO FUND ENTERPRISES IN INDIA

§   (1). On Aug. 9, 2006, Schmidt held an interview with George Soros to discuss Soros’s new book. During the interview, they referenced past contacts they had had, demonstrating a long-time relationship between them

§  (2). In a March 29, 2010 press release from the Open Society Institute, Soros encouraged Google to choose Baltimore as the city to launch their high speed internet project, “for the same reasons that I selected Baltimore for my philanthropic investment,” Soros said

§  (3). Soros’s request shows that he identifies Google as one with his same left-wing ideals.

GOOGLE CONTRACTS

§ NASA & GOOGLE DEAL: NASA houses fleet of jets/helicopter to ferry Google executives, planes are supplied with Department of Defense jet fuel…deal was struck in name of “scientific research.”

§ FCC & GOOGLE: FCC began using Google Analytics to monitor number of visitors to its website, even though one analyst said Google’s privacy provisions are “rather weak.” … visitors to the website are never informed of their tracking unless they happen to first check the agency’s privacy policy.

§ DOI & GOOGLE: Google recently sued the Department of the Interior for refusing to consider its product for a $50 million bidding contract.

§ Pentagon Spending: In September 2010, Google landed its biggest Pentagon contract, inking a $27 million deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) even after media reports raised questions of favoritism… with this deal, Google landed the largest government contract ever a $26.7 million dollar renewable sole-source contract for Google Earth spatial imaging software with with the secretive Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA).  With that decision, Google multiplied nine fold the total of $3.02 million in direct purchase orders that it has received from 25 federal government agencies since is founding 1998.

§ High level support from Obama admin:... Google outmaneuvered rivals to secure federal government certification for its Apps for Government software. That certification helped the company win a competitive $6.5 million contract in December 2010 to provide email for 15,000 employees of the General Services Administration.  Complaints arose that Google received preferential treatment

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."
