Marcus Luttrell opens up about the man who saved his life

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to his good friend Marcus Luttrell about the man who saved his life – Mohammed Gulab. If you have read Marcus’ book, Lone Survivor, you are familiar with the iatrical role Gulab played in aiding Marus and the team that came to rescue him in the aftermath of the failed Operation Redwing. Since that day, Gulab and his family have been under increased threat, and with the release of the movie adaptation of Lone Survivor due out in December, Marcus is looking to bring his friend to the United States to ensure his safety.

“[Marcus] happened to fall into this village, and the guy who was really his savior was Mohammed Gulab,” Glenn said. “And this guy is now entering a situation where he's known as the guy who saved Marcus Luttrell, and when the movie comes out, it will only get more dangerous for him over there. He is coming over to the United States for a visit. I would like to see that we could get a Green Card for him because he is increasingly in more and more danger and he saved, not only a friend of mine, but he saved… a man I believe is an American hero.”

Gulab will be arriving in Houston, Texas this week for a short visit with Marcus, but Marus explained that his friend is not looking to cut corners or gain U.S. citizenship – he is simply looking for safety on a temporary basis.

“[Gulab is] probably the most honorable man I know, other than my brother – willing to hang it on the line for a total and complete stranger… He hadn't had any problems before I rolled in there. But since then, his family members have been killed; his house has been burned down… They try to kill him daily,” Marcus explained. “With the release of the movie, we want to get him back over here, so he can ride it out… Everybody talks about him becoming an American citizen, but he's a proud Afghani. If he did come over here, it would all have to be the right way, the legit way, following every rule because that's just the way he is. He doesn't cut any corners and he doesn't believe in that.”

The future of Afghanistan is unkown. Marcus explained that when the U.S. military pulls out of the country, there is a very probable chance the futile democracy will crumble and Gulab’s safety will be less certain.

“I'm surprised he made it this long without our help. So if anybody deserves any kind of asylum or our help, it's him,” Marcus said. “He not only saved my life – the people who rescued me, the Rangers and Green Berets, he's been helping out with intelligence for our government to chase down bad guys over there. So I wouldn't understand if they denied him, when most people can just walk over here freely.”

Glenn asked Marcus to explain one of the more interesting facets of his relationship with Gulab. The men speak on the phone on a regular basis despite the fact that they do not speak the same language.

“Does he speak English at all,” Glenn asked. “Because I know he speaks Pashto.”

“No, he's got fragments here and there,” Marcus explained. “This may sound funny, but it all falls back to when I was in that village for that week. I just go off the inflection in his voice, and he goes off of mine. I just kind of can understand where he's coming from, what he's trying to say to me, and how things are going out there just by the way he talks to me. That's how close we became… It's crazy how close you can become to somebody when they are a lifeline, when you absolutely positively have to hang on to every word they say, every emotion they throw out, just because you think they are going to keep you alive.”

“I think this is the spirit of speaking tongues,” Glenn surmised. “You can understand him, he can understand you, but you don't speak a word of the language. I think it's a God thing and a heart thing, Marcus.”

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."
