Glenn talks with 'The Homeless Advisor'

Glenn has a lot of fans across the country, but there is one fan in particular who many may be surprised is a huge Glenn Beck fan – a homeless gentleman named Scooter.

When he brought him on, Glenn asked Scooter to introduce himself to the audience.

“I'm 56, from New Jersey. I've been homeless just over two years now. I'm approaching my third year. I wasn't part of the subprime mess. I lost a house that I had lived in for 27 years. It was bad health, bad luck. And I'm hoping to explore my future. I'm a Tea Party guy. I'm not here because of addiction,” Scooter said.

“I live in my van. I live in a conversion van of wonders. I'm in a Wal Mart parking lot here in Morris County, New Jersey, and I stay alive by using a generator. I'm able to cook in here. I have a new wave oven, I've got a microwave, a coffee maker. And hoping for a much better future.”

“But you want the government to take care of you?” Glenn asked.

“Absolutely not. I take the absolute minimal. As a matter of fact, it wasn't until New Jersey had forced me to that I applied for disability,” said Scooter.

“Because of the type of aid that I do get from the state which is general assistance and food stamps which amounts to a total of 400 a month, they obligate me, because I have a medical situation, they obligate me to apply for disability. And I was made aware of that about a year and a half ago and I just refused to do it and then I was told I had to do it, otherwise I was going to lose what I get,” Scooter explained.

“Ofttimes you have quoted Ben Franklin where he said don't make people too comfortable in the situation that they're in. And I don't want to become complacent. And you know something? When you get to the winter? Like last night we had below 30 degrees, and it becomes appealing. I do look for work. I've picked up some odd jobs over the course of time so that whenever I've seen opportunity, I've grabbed it with both hands and I've gone with it.”

Scooter said he was looking at Wyoming, North Dakota, and possibly Texas. Scooter said that he has a background in television and used to work in the production trucks in New York for live events.

Scooter also commented on politicians a political figures like Maxine Waters and Jim Wallis.

“ Here's the thing with Maxine Waters. I mean, she's been obnoxious in the past, and I've got to tell you even before I heard her quote, I was getting annoyed at the Wall Street people simply because I've been in the van like I said over two years and not once have I ever wanted to defecate out in public. Quite frankly, because I would be so studious in finding where I needed to do whatever it was, I wound up in a hospital with a severe case of diverticulitis. And that these people, they've actually made life for some homeless people in the country harder in certain cities because they've been grabbing resources from churches and things like that that are designated specifically for the homeless.”

Scooter said that the people and businesses around him have been generous. He gets electricity from a generator and he gets internet access from the nearby McDonald’s and a Panera Bread.

How did Glenn hear of Scooter?

Scooter explained, “There was actually a tsunami on Twitter a few weeks ago that was inspired by me. It wasn't instigated by me and I was quite surprised by it. There's a fella by the name of Mark Fullback who came up and did a video with me. The thing I like about Mark is that he's not going after government help for helping homeless people get back on their feet or stay alive. He reaches out to individuals, to institutions, to corporations and he's doing a great job. He came up, shot a video with me at which point he asked me the same question about Internet access and I mentioned that Glenn had the new network online and that I wish I could get it and I looked in the camera and I said, if anybody wants to buy me a scholarship, please do. And then there was this tsunami of tweets that people were saying, ‘Hey, Glenn, reach out to Scooter, he's your biggest fan,’ et cetera, et cetera, et cetera.”

One of Glenn’s producers saw the tweets and passed the story to Glenn and Stu. Below is the video which led to Scooter ending up on radio:

At the end of the interview, Glenn gave Scooter a subscription to GBTV – but with the caveat that Scooter continues to contribute to segments on radio and GBTV.

“Thank you so much. And listen, God bless you guys for everything that you do. I told these people what you do I cherish because you're boots on the ground and you're pressing the Constitution and you want to take the country back to the greatness that it was that opens up opportunities for guys like me. It really does.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
