Another Russia Today anchor with a death wish: Rips Putin, quits on air

A Russia Today news anchor made the bold decision to quit her job on Wednesday – during a live broadcast. The grandchild of Hungarian refugees who fled Soviet oppression, Liz Wahl said she is “proud to be an American” and could no longer “be a part of a network that whitewashes the actions of Putin” before singing off the network for good.

Last night, Glenn shared the story on Facebook, calling Wahl a “hero” and questioning whether journalists at American news networks would be willing to stand up in a similar way in light of the Obama Administration prosecution and targeting of reporters. He took a similar stance on radio this morning.

Check out Wahl’s on-air resignation in the clip below:

“I think that is remarkable," Glenn said. "Now, if you go the easy place and say, you know, nobody is watching Russia Today, so it's not really a big deal… No, no, no. She's making an impact with what she said… because we are replaying it, and I think this is fantastic.”

While it might be easy to understand why an American journalist would cease working with an outlet like Russia Today, it is important to consider the state of press freedom in the United States as well. When the group Reporters Without Borders ranked the United States number 46 in the world for press freedom, citing the U.S. government’s investigations into various newsrooms, many gawked. But, under Obama Administration, freedom of the press is not what it used to be.

As Glenn explained, wouldn’t it be nice if more journalists stood up and said: It is time for the government to stop interfering with the press:

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a journalist or two that cared about the Fourth Amendment or the First Amendment enough to say, ‘Hey… They were threatening my friends, my journalist friends. They are spying on their parents. The NSA is violating the Fourth Amendment, and I know what's going on. But I'm an American first. I'm not a Democrat. I'm not a progressive. I'm not a Republican. I'm not a TEA Party person. I'm an American. And there are certain truths that we used to hold self-evident. And here they are: You can't spy on us… We don't squash people voices in America. And it's important that all voices are heard. Yes, even Al Jazeera. Yes, even Russia Today. Yes, those voices have a place and they can be heard.’”

Wouldn't it be nice if a journalist said, ‘You know what? The New York Times won't accept a picture from an outside source… and yet the President is boxing us out of the White House. We don't get our photojournalists in. Our photojournalists aren't going in and taking those pictures. Those are his photojournalists, and they're not journalists. They are his photographers. We're not getting candid pictures anymore. We're getting set up propaganda film from the White House. We don't get to go into the White House and tape these things anymore. Wouldn't you love to hear a journalist stand up and say that?

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."
