A lesson in grace & humility: Glenn explains why Sean Hannity’s simple act of kindness is so important

You may have heard Glenn mention that Sean Hannity is using TheBlaze’s New York offices as a temporary home base for his radio program. While his studio is undergoing renovations, Glenn reached out to Sean and offered him his office and radio studio to use because – let’s face it – Glenn would any excuse possible to not visit New York. On radio this morning, Glenn explained why Sean Hannity's simple act of kindness illustrates an important lesson in grace and humility.

Glenn tells the story in his own words below:

I've been in radio since the 1970s, and back in the 80s things were very, very competitive. And, boy, I was a ruthless competitor, but it was done in a spirit of fun and one-upsmanship. A competing guy would one-up us, and so we would work harder to one-up him, and that's just the way it was. And for some reason, radio is a very competitive business, and it's funny because most of us are self-hating egomaniacs. We have to have that bravado to be able to think that our opinions even matter or should be listened to. But at the end of every day, the best of us go home and say, ‘I don't know if what I did was right, I don't know, who am I to say?’ Yet, we for some reason build walls up between each other. And it's no secret that many people in talk radio, and on the web, in television, have considered me to be a competitor or have listened to people fill their heads with nonsense about, you know, who I am. And so we have had damaged relationships and just all out of misunderstanding. And I take blame for anything that I might have done.

But this summer, I've been doing it kind of roundabout for years, but this time I wrote a few people in talk radio and I said, ‘For anything I have done, I'm sorry. But we are in a different country, in a different time, and we don't have that many differences. And we all have our own way of doing it, but we've got to stand together.’ And so I have offered up everything I have in the service of like-minded people.

And Sean Hannity is building new studios – and he certainly doesn't need my help – but he's building new studios, and he was in a place where it was going to be a real hassle, you know, with a tarp on the other side of the glass and it would have taken longer for his studios to be built, et cetera, et cetera. And so we offered up our Blaze studios, my studios. And he has my corner office in New York. I gave up my office for him for three months in New York because I'm not using it. And he has come into our offices, and we tried to make him feel at home. And he has been so gracious to everyone on our staff, and he's been everything that you would hope Sean Hannity would be.

Today, I just got a note that he's bringing pizza in for, I don't even know. What do we have, 210 people in New York? And he's bringing pizza in for the whole staff just to thank them and just to give them a lunch today. Completely unnecessary. And he didn't think that I would talk about it. And is not doing it for that. I just wanted to tell you the message I got last night was grace and humility, and Sean Hannity is demonstrating that today – a lesson he didn't need to learn apparently as much as I did.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
