Glenn reacts to the ‘most important’ speech given last night

Congresswoman Cathy McMorris-Rodgers (R-WA) delivered the official Republican Party response to the State of the Union, and Glenn found himself unimpressed by the worn out platitudes and party-pleasing rhetoric. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) also delivered assessments of the state of our union aimed at a more small-government, liberty-minded audience, and Glenn connected much more to their sentiment. In fact, Glenn was so impressed with Sen. Lee’s remarks he heralded the speech as the ‘most important’ given by a politician recently.

“Was anybody else frustrated by the GOP response,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Then you have Mike Lee, who gave the response for the Tea Party Express… between him and Rand Paul, those were the best… I watched the opening [few] minutes of each, and I will tell you that those eight minutes were more powerful, more truthful, and more plain spoken than anything the President has said for about three months and more than anything that the press has said… It will connect with you because it's common sense, common values, and common courtesy.”

Glenn first focused on Sen. Paul’s because he did an excellent job of boiling down the most serious problems facing this country in a succinct, easily digestible way.

“The President was offering all kinds of solutions yesterday, but he was not talking about the problem. We have not yet talked about the problem. What is his excuse… You cannot fix a problem unless you address the problem. So here's the opening that I think every American should see of Rand Paul… He's talking about what the problem is and then he goes into the solution.”

Watch Sen. Paul’s speech below:

“You listen to him and he really starts to lay out the problem and then he presents the solution,” Glenn surmised. “That was more clear and more educational and better for the American people than anything the President said.”

Meanwhile, Sen. Lee delivered a very plainspoken speech that obviously directed at the American people, not the political elites in Washington, D.C.

“I want you to really listen to this, America, because this addresses you… He is not talking to the political elites. He is not talking to the party. He is not talking to anybody but the average American, who he recognizes is tired, is burned out, is discouraged,” Glenn said. “This is, I think, probably the most important political speech I have heard in a very long time from anyone in Washington because he's speaking directly to you.”

What Glenn most appreciated about Sen. Lee’s address was the uniting tone it struck. Any and all Americans who value small government and less federal overreach will appreciate what the Senator said, and Glenn believes that inclusive attitude will prove vital moving forward.

“This is the most important speech I think I have heard from a politician in I don't know how long because, A, I know Mike Lee. I know he means this. And listen to what he's saying: We're all alike. And those who went out and protested a government they didn't want, you played an important role. And you might feel discouraged right now,” Glenn said. “[But] there is more growth in the American people… We focus on the problems in our society. We focus on how many people are not getting it, are not paying attention, aren't reading a book. But could we for a second trust the American people and see how many millions across this land are more awake than they have ever been before in their life?”

“Trust the American people,” Glenn concluded. “And prepare yourself to go to the next step now and that is being for something great.”

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."
