Glenn: The lost sheep, us included, are starting to come home

On radio this morning Glenn did something only he could – turning the story of a lost sheep at his ranch into the perfect analogy for making sense of the world around us today. About a year ago, the sheep on Glenn’s ranch were attacked by a pack of wolves and coyotes. The family assumed all had been lost until just a few days ago, when one of the lost sheep wandered back. It had survived.

“I want to tell you a story about something that happened to me on the ranch last week. I've never understood looking for that one lost sheep until we did actually have to look for one lost sheep. Last year, we had our sheep killed by coyotes, and one of them was cowering on our front porch when we came home. The coyotes had come and just got into the sheep pen and just killed them and eaten them, and one of them was up against our door just looking for our help, and we were gone. We just assumed that they had all been killed,” Glenn explained. “But then last spring, one of the guys who works on the ranch saw a sheep up in the mountains and said, ‘I think that's one of ours.’ But it disappeared, and we own this side of a mountain that, you know, you're just not going to get to everything.”

While at the ranch last week, Glenn’s daughter spotted a lamb out the window. Glenn explained that he put on his boots and coat and headed outside to try to catch it.

“I got my boots on and my coat and we all tried to catch sheep. Now, I'm a city boy. I have no idea what it takes to catch a little lost lamb. It's not as easy as it might seem. And it took about six of us and two 4Runners and some rope and finally the sheep was so afraid that he ran right into the cab of my 4Runner,” Glenn said. “And so he was inside the cab of this little vehicle. And we had to bring him back. And the kids and I, as we roped the legs of this lamb to put him in the back to bring him back down to the pen, the kids just talked to him and petted his face and tried to tell him everything was going to be okay. He was terrified. He had been out in the mountains for a year alone, and he had survived the coyotes and the wolves and everything by himself. I've been thinking about that for a long time. In fact, as we drove him back to the pen, the kids and I talked about that one lost lamb and what it takes for Jesus to go out and how we're all lost sheep. It was really a cool night with the kids.”

So how does this relate to the state of the world right now?

“I remember when I said ‑ after the election – I said to my own team and more to my own self, ‘Well, we all would have gone back to sleep. Maybe we're supposed to stay awake a little longer because, if we would have put the [Romney] in, the people who were awake today, probably a good portion of them would have gone back to sleep,’” he said. “And so I thought maybe that's the reason. But the other thing at the time, and I didn't realize it until yesterday, I said, ‘The Lord isn't just trying to save half the country. He wants to save everybody.’ Every single lost sheep has to be found.”

President Obama may have won the election, but his win sparked something in a lot of people – a lot of people woke and realized the problems with a large, bloated government, and people on both sides of the aisle have now resolved to fix it.

“But because the average TEA Partier no longer believes in Washington and no longer believes the answer is going to be found there, which is true. Because we don't have a Republican president, which might have been a progressive president just as bad in many ways, we have had to rely on ourselves. And because of that, the real story yesterday was not Syria. The real story was Colorado,” Glenn explained. “And that is an amazing story. That is the story of Americans saying, ‘I don't care what you say.’ We're doing it the right way and recalling two politicians that were the leaders on the gun control bills in Colorado. That's a huge story; that was seven people deciding, ‘We're not going to take that. We're going to recall them." Seven people – against the man, against Bloomberg, against all of the millions of dollars, against the entire progressive movement, against the state, against everything and anybody who wants power. Seven people stood and said, ‘I'm not taking that. I'm not doin' it.’ And they won.”

When times are tough, it is easy to get discouraged, but Glenn was adamant that there is a silver lining to even the most difficult situations.

“So the first thing I said, trying to lift myself up and my spirits up, was, ‘Well, maybe this happened because we would have all fallen asleep.’ The guys who are awake would have fallen asleep. Well, because the president was reelected, not only did we not fall asleep, we have retrenched ourselves closer to the truth,” Glenn proclaimed. “What we might have believed was the truth last year, I think we're closer to the truth now. And that truth is this: The power resides with you, the individual. The power is not in Washington. It is close to home. And you've got to shore your neighborhood up, your home up. You've got to shore up your state. And that's exactly what happened in Colorado. That is huge news and good news.”

“And the other thing I said after the election was, ‘God doesn't want to lose a single one. He's going to go after that lost sheep. And I don't know how it's going to work, but it is. Look at what's happening with our country right now… Look how many people are starting to agree with each other and saying, ‘Wait, I don't want to agree with that guy, but I do.’ We are starting now to understand that it is the power of the individual, and it is not the truth of the party, that is this blanket truth,” he explained. “And now, because Romney didn't win, because this president has told so many lies that now his own people are starting to look at him and go, ‘This doesn't even make sense,’ we don't have to preach that to them. They're seeing it. And we're finding ourselves coming together. And the lost sheep, us included, are starting to see the real truth and are coming home. Even though we've all survived in the mountains for a while, and we've almost been eaten by coyotes, we're all comin' home and we're learning to trust each other. That's a good thing.”

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."
