‘This is not a parody’: Glenn shares tips to ensure that you survive the snow and ice season safely

Glenn was forced to close his Dallas offices on Friday and Monday because of the ice storm that rocked much of the country late last week. While Glenn admitted he was totally ill prepared for the storm (he didn’t even own a shovel!), a new report from the Snow & Ice Management Association might just take preparedness to a whole new extreme.

“I just want to share something. And… this is not a parody,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Tips for safe walking in snow and ice from the Snow and Ice Management Association… Every winter the hazards of driving in snow and icy conditions are noted, but rarely is walking in the snow noted. So the Snow and Ice Management Association has come out with their tips about walking in the snow.”

“Yeah, because it's pretty confusing,” Pat joked. “What do you do? What do you do?”

Glenn, Pat, and Stu had a little fun going through the recommendations from the Snow & Ice Management Association – a nonprofit representing the snow removal industry – on how to safely walk through snowy or icy conditions.

Wear proper footwear. Wear shoes with heavy treading and a flat bottom that place the entire foot on the surface of the ground.

Wear things that help you see and be seen. Wear sunglasses so you can see. Also, bright and reflect clothing help you be seen by drivers.

Plan ahead. Walk consciously on icy sidewalks and parking lots. Look up to see where the next icy spots are and be aware of any vehicles near you.

Listen. Avoid listening to music or talking on the phone while walking in icy or snowy conditions. Pedestrians need to be able to hear approaching traffic or other noises.

Anticipate ice. What appears to be wet pavement may be black ice, so approach it with caution. Ice will often appear in the mornings, so be more aware in the early hours.

Take steps slowly. When walking down steps, take them slowly and deliberately. Plant your feet securely on each step and be sure to have a firm grip on the handrail.

Enter buildings slowly. The floors of buildings may be covered in melted snow and ice, so check the entrance and try to step on any rugs in the doorways.

Avoid shortcuts. A shortcut path may be dangerous because it is less likely that snow and ice removal occurred.

Look up. Be aware of what you're walking under. Falling snow and ice can cause injuries.

“You'll never guess number 10 because I think they've told us like three times not to do this,” Glenn said. “But number 10 is: Look up.”

“Wait, what,” Stu asked skeptically.

“They have been saying: Look at your feet. But they want to make sure that if you are looking down; they also throw in there to look up occasionally too,” Glenn explained. “Don't just look down.”

Stu still couldn’t understand why he is supposed to look up, when he is supposed to be looking down to see the ice on the ground.

“Well, you want to be careful about what you're walking under,” Glenn continued. “Because, I didn't know this: Injuries can also result from falling snow and ice.”

“So you can look up and the icicle can fall directly into your eyeball,” Stu quipped.

“Following these tips will ensure that you survive the snow and ice season safely. For more tips, for even more tips, go to the Snow and Ice Management Association website,” Glenn concluded. “Thank you so much for sending this to me, Snow and Ice Management Association, who I didn't know you existed, and strangely, now I'm questioning why you do. But I'm glad you will exist to help us through these troubled, troubled times of snow and ice… Things you didn't learn from Mom and Dad.”

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."
