Glenn reflects on the life of Pastor Ken Hutcherson

Yesterday afternoon, Glenn received news that his friend Pastor Ken Hutcherson had passed away at the age of 61 after battling cancer for more than a decade.

His church, Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Washington, announced: “Antioch Bible Church sadly announces that shortly before noon today our Senior Pastor Dr. Ken Hutcherson was ushered in the [presence] of the Lord. Please pray for comfort and peace for the family. The family asked that you give them some privacy at this time. Please no phone calls or [visits].”

On radio this morning, Glenn reflected on the life of his friend and the impact Hutch had on Glenn’s life and the lives of all those who met him.

We lost Ken Hutcherson yesterday. And it's really strange because while I was on stage yesterday – We were doing a big corporate meeting and we had 300 people here and then we had the internal broadcast for all of our staff around the country – and halfway through I started talking about Hutch and talking about how you can go bitter inside or you can change your thinking and experience a miracle. And nobody told me [when] I got off stage. I had to go do the TV show. And as soon as I finished the TV show, I saw the staff walk in and everybody kind of had their head down. And they said, "Glenn, some people are waiting for you in the green room." And I'm like, "Is it the NSA? Are they here for me?" And I said, "What's going on?" And they told me who was waiting, and I knew. And I stopped and I said, "He died, didn't he?" They said yes. And they said, ironically, the best we can tell, he died at almost precisely the time you deviated from your prepared notes and started talking about him and how wonderful he was.

And Hutch and I have just had this connection, and we both believed that we knew each other before we were born and that we were strangely connected. I talked to Pat [his wife] and she said, you know, he was worried about us. You know, it's a man thing. And that's why I really wanted to get out before he died just to tell him: Don't worry. Your family is going to be fine. Your family's going to be taken care of, and your family's going to be fine. But I didn't get a chance to see him. But he was a remarkable man.

And if you missed our special on Hutch, you can see it. There are I think four or five episodes that we did. Strangely, I knew that we weren't going to have another shot. I hoped. I was in denial. I hoped that we had more time, but I knew that would be the last episode we cut of Hutch. That last episode I made everybody go back up to Seattle. We had already filmed that last episode, and I saw it and I said, “That's not right. Go back up and do it again.” And they went up and he could barely talk and barely move, and I'm glad we did because when I talked to Pat, she said, “I can't thank you enough for having your team come up and have him talk about fatherhood and his daughters and everything else.”

And if you want to know about a miracle, here it is. I thought, I really thought that Hutch could be the next Martin Luther King. And I really thought that he had so much stuff that was important for Americans to hear and that's why we began to make that special series. And he does have things to say that you need to hear, you need to watch. He was one of the most remarkable men I've ever met. But at that last episode, I realized, we're missing the mark here. And when I told them go back up and get him to talk about the family, what does he want to say to his daughter, what does he want to say to his wife.

And last night when I found out, I thought, you know, Lord, you are so great. You are so personal to each of us. You don't really care about, quite honestly, about business or how much things cost or how much time is spent or whatever… I think I met Hutch not for any other reason other than he was such a good and faithful servant that had been so loyal to the Lord, and He knew, God did, that his family was going to need comfort and to remember him and remember the good times. And so He knew that our company would be loyal enough just to go up and film him. And I think that was a gift from God for his family. Not for anybody else. But it's still worth you watching.

61 years old, Ken Hutcherson, a remarkable, remarkable man.

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."
