WATCH: You won't believe the story behind this flag

On Monday's show, Glenn spent the opening monologue criticizing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's remarks stating that that some conservatives have no place in New York. At the end of the segment, Glenn told the story of a flag he has had on set for the past few months, and how it shows the true spirit of Americans and conservatives who are living in the state.

I don’t think any American, left, right, straight, gay, believer, atheist, believes that less diversity, less voices, more intolerance is better. I don’t think anybody thinks that that that’s what they had in mind when they came up with Excelsior. I’m disturbed because I have 200 employees in New York, and let me tell you, Governor, who we are.

It was the day after 9/11. Dust was still in the air, smoke at Ground Zero. I was there a few days after this, and it was an awful place to be. And I’m sure the governor was there too. And it was a time that united all of us. The day after, it was 9/12, a day when we were amazing to each other, and parties didn’t matter anymore, when we were John Doe.

A woman and her spouse left their apartment, it overlooked Ground Zero, and they didn’t know what to do. Everything was closed. Everything was utter chaos and covered in ash. It was awful. I saw this area a week later, and I will never, it took me a decade to get the smell out of my nose every time I thought of it. It reeked of death.

So here these two are, they’re walking down the street, and they go into a restaurant. And they’re sitting in this restaurant. And they look out the window, and they see this woman covered in ash. And she is distraught and disoriented, and she’s talking to herself. And she has wrapped this flag around her like a shawl.

And they see her coming, and they immediately get up and leave the restaurant and say we’ll be right back. And they go out, and they comfort this woman. She was sitting on the sidewalk, and she was absolutely incoherent. And they couldn’t console her for quite some time. They talked to her about anything, and they talked to her about this flag. And she said I was down at Ground Zero, and it was in the rubble. And I pulled it out. And she was using it as a cover, a shield.

She said that her husband was a police officer. She hadn’t been able to get a hold of him, and she was going down to see if she could find him. She walked across the bridge. It was clear that the odds were not in her favor at the time. Well, they calmed her down, and she stood up. And she said I have to go home. They asked if they could help her, go with her, and they wouldn’t happen.

And she was grateful for the good Samaritans, for they would provide a shoulder to cry on. As they started apart, she took this flag off of her shoulders, and she gave it to this couple. They returned home, and they put that flag on display for everyone to see right outside their window overlooking Ground Zero.

A few years later, they joined something we started called the 9/12 Project, and they tried and tried and tried to get this flag to me because they said the flag didn’t belong to me, it belonged to America. It belonged to anybody who understood who we really were on 9/12. It belonged to everybody that understood that we need to come together, and we need to come together not just after an awful tragedy.

I share this story for two reasons: One, this is who we are. We’re people that live side by side, and we help each other when we’re in trouble. We don’t wait for FEMA, and we don’t wait for the Republicans or the Democrats. We just do it because it’s right.

But the other reason I wanted to share this is the one detail of the story that I left out, the members of the 9/12 project, that couple that was looking for a flag, two Conservatives, they are strong on the Constitution and the right to life and everything else, but they’re also two lesbians, two women, Conservatives, members of this audience who live in New York.

Yesterday, I thought about this flag. As I thought about the governor’s statements, I thought boy, Governor, do you believe they have a place in your state?

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."
