Why are so many people moving to Texas?

For close to two years, Glenn has been talking nonstop about how everyone needs to move to Texas. (editor's tangent: Seriously, he won't stop talking about it. Every time I see him he tells me how great Texas is and how I need to get out of New York as soon as humanly possible. I mean, we talk about other stuff but it always come back to that. Sometimes he just mocks the New York staff over Skype when we're in the morning meetings. It starts like a joke and then it's all "No, seriously. Move to Texas". Joel gets it the worst. End of tangent). Well, it seems like the rest of the world is catching on to what Glenn's known all along: Texas is a pretty sweet place to live. Shockingly, the BBC is the latest outlet to espouse the virtues of the state with their Top ten reasons so many people are moving to Texas. Did he agree with their points?

Let's start at the top:

1. Jobs

Well, it's hard to argue that Texas is kicking butt when it comes to job creation - but Glenn has been on the record that the #1 reason people should be going to Texas is for the freedom. If you find a job in Texas (which you probably will) that's great, but freedom comes first.

2. It's cheaper

Yup. As the article points out, it's just easier to make your paycheck last and to obtain the things associated with a middle class lifestyle. Glenn agrees.

3. Homes

Cheap land? Can't argue with that.

4. Low taxes

So far so good.

5. Pick your own big city

Lot's of options including Houston, Dallas, and Ft. Worth. Not so much El Paso even though it's pretty big. But that brings us to the biggest disagreement...

6. AUSTIN

Really? Austin, TX is one of the TOP TEN reasons to move to Texas? Stu stuck up for the city and praised it's great food and music scene, but Glenn couldn't believe that the city made the top ten list.

"Liberal progressive hippies that's who love (Austin). People who just want to be weird and they were like 'You know, San Francisco used to be weird, but now it's too big city weird. So I want to go do weird someplace else'. Would you stop wrecking the whole country?" Glenn said.

Ok, moving on...

7. Family-friendly

Agreed, although the BBC article has to specifically point out that San Antonio is home to the largest community of gay parents.

"We have to differentiate?" Glenn asked when he read that.

8. Fewer rules

Freedom. BOOM! Seriously, how is this not the number one reason?

"If that's not the very fabric of this state, we're done," Glenn said.

9. Texans are normal people

Yes, they are - but does that really need to be pointed out and put on the Top Ten list? Glenn took issue with the way that media portrays Texas to the rest of the country and how the cowboy in a ten gallon bucket hat has become the stereotypical Texan. He also took issue with a woman who was quoted as saying "[They] realise that Texans aren't all Bible thumping, gun-toting people." Uh, would it be so bad to live in a place where people had faith and exercised their rights?

10. And they're not going anywhere

The segment ended before they got to number ten on the list: Native Texans stay in Texas. Why? Because it's awesome (source: Glenn Beck every day since he moved to Texas)

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."
