Inspirational: Iowa Prison makes donation to Mercury One

On radio today, Glenn read a letter from a chaplain at Anamosa's State Penitentiary, where the inmates made a donation of $100 to Mercury One to help provide aid to the Hurricane Sandy relief effort. What made the donation so surprising was that the wage for the prisoners who sent the check is only 52 cents/hour, the equivalent of 32 days of work for a single person.

Glenn read:

Dear Mercury One,

Enclosed you'll find a check from the men of the Chapel Religious Programs at Anamosa's State Penitentiary in Iowa. I work here as the chaplain religious program coordinator for the program. One of the things we try to accomplish is to help people come to an understanding of the value and importance of other people and why it's important to reach out to them in a positive way. This is a new concept for some of the men here. This is how the religious program fits into the security, education and treatment of the prison. Please be aware that inside the walls, and they are relatively high, the rate of hours worked is 52 cents. So that means $100 is 32 days of work for a single person here.

We chose Mercury One to be our charity partner because we know the entire amount will go to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. Please utilize it in the place where it is needed most.

Richard Jenkins, chaplain, Anamosa's State Penitentiary, Iowa

"This is a tremendous donation," Glenn said.

Glenn used the letter as an opportunity to teach about the importance of being able to control where you choose to spend your money. The current progressive philosophy in Washington is "let the government decide where the need is greatest", but Glenn believes that individuals should have the freedom to decide how to spend their hard earned money.

"When you know the value of work, when you know the value of a dollar, or in this case $100, 32 days of work, and you have the opportunity to give, you don't let the tax structure do it for you.  Because all of that hard earned money, so much of it is wasted.  Our ability to give and our ability to keep the fruits of our own labor, whether it's 52 cents an hour or $100,000 an hour, doesn't matter.  We're all the same in the end.  We all have to be helped and coaxed and coax others to give.  But then when we do, because our heart has been truly changed, we look for the way to give it the most effective way.  Charity is an investment in people.  It's an investment in the future.  It's an investment in ‑‑ I believe in the people in New Jersey, or I believe in the Huntsman Cancer Center.  I believe in them and so I give to them because I know they're going to use the dollar the most efficient way," Glenn said.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
