This season is the opportunity to reset

EDITOR’S NOTE: Due to inclement weather in Dallas, Glenn asked his staff to stay home this today as he broadcasted his radio program from home. As a result, no video clips will be available from Friday’s radio show. You can listen to the entire radio show HERE. The story below is a recap of one the radio segments.


Glenn has been talking about the importance of the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s trio of holidays for a few weeks now, and, on radio this morning, he explained why the holiday season offers the perfect opportunity to “reset” and “examine” your life and to “figure out who you want to be.”

“The trilogy of holidays, as I like to call them, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's – it's a chance for you to reset,” Glenn said. “It's a chance for you to put into place all three things that are important in life."

As Glenn sees it, Thanksgiving offered the chance to express humility and gratitude for everything - both the good and the bad - that you have.

Glenn explained that his family recently received some bad news, but he finds himself proud with the way they have handled the situation. It is easy to give credit to God for the good things in life, but it is equally important, as Glenn explained, to recognize that the not-so-good things come from Him as well.

“It all comes from him. It's all right. It's all right. It's all going to be good. That's a miracle,” Glenn explained. “So the first part of the trilogy is Thanksgiving and the humility, to see the blessings of the good and the bad.

The second part of the trio is Christmas, and while we often look at Christmas as the celebration of the birth of Jesus, Glenn explained why it is actually a day to celebrate the life of Jesus. Christmas represents an opportunity for rebirth – to reexamine what it is you are supposed to do.

“And then it's the birth of the baby, but it's not just the birth. That's not what it's about. It's the death. Why did he come? To start over, to send you a clear message: You can start over,” Glenn said. “My life is so different than it was in the 1990s. Everything about me – fundamentally to the cellular level – [is] different because I was given the chance to start all over again. And you can [too].”

Glenn warned against making “stupid” New Year resolutions that “don’t mean anything really.” Instead, Glenn encouraged his listeners to consider what it is you want to be. “Figure out why you are really here,” he said.

To illustrate this point, Glenn told the story of a man named Joe:

Joe lived a long life, and he died peacefully in his sleep. Next thing he knows, he's entering the pearly gates, and St. Peter greets him and says, "Anybody here you want to meet?" And he's like, "You've got to be kidding me. I can meet anybody?" He's like, "Yeah, you can meet anybody." He's like, "Well, I've always been a baseball fan. I'd like to meet the best player you've got up here." St. Peter says, "Paging Lou Gehrig, Lou Gehrig to the pearly gates, Lou Gehrig." Lou shows up. He was taking batting practice. He takes a break. They talk for hours about baseball and the power of humility.

St. Peter says, "Anybody else you want to meet?" He says, "Yeah. Tesla. I read this book by Glenn Beck. I was actually reading his book when I fell asleep and then you took me and then I didn't get a chance to finish the Tesla and Westinghouse and Edison chapter." He says, "Hang on. Nikola Tesla to the pearly gates. Nikola Tesla to the pearly gates." They had a long talk.

St. Peter says, "Anybody else?" He says, "Yeah. You know what? I was an American soldier. Tell me, who's the greatest general here?" St. Peter thought for a moment. This time he didn't page anybody. He takes him over to an alley right around the corner and there sitting on a bench was a cobbler repairing a shoe. He said, "There he is. He's the greatest military general that ever lived." Joe said, "I don't recognize him." St. Peter said, "No, you wouldn't. He had all the values and the characteristics of a great leader, but his father was a cobbler, and his father before him was a cobbler, and so he felt he should be a cobbler. He thought it was the right thing to do – not for himself but for others. He never followed his passion, but he's a good man."

“Be remembered for doing not what you think others want you to do, but find out who you really are. Find out why you are here. Start all over again. Be your authentic self. You have unique talents,” Glenn concluded. “When you get to the other side, have somebody say, ‘I want to see the best of...’ Don't have St. Peter come around the corner and say, ‘It should have been him, but he did what everybody told him he should do. He did what he thought was the easiest. He listened to others.’”

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."
