Glenn receives a thank you note from… Mitt Romney

On Monday, Glenn discussed on air – for the first time – a gift he gave to Mitt Romney just days before the 2012 election: A rare, first-edition copy of George Washington’s farewell address. Glenn explained that, despite their political differences, he wanted to congratulate Romney on running “an honorable race.” Furthermore, Glenn hoped to “cement in [Romney’s] mind” that if he were to win the election, he would “have to be George Washington,” the “guy who understands the principles.”

The weekend before the election, Glenn gave the artifact to Romney’s son Josh and explained its significance. Days, weeks, months, and now years have gone by, and Glenn never heard so much as a peep from Romney or his team. Having met Romney in the past and knowing him to be a gracious man, Glenn admitted on Monday that he was surprised he didn’t receive any sort of thank you from the presidential candidate.

As it turns out, however, Romney’s silence was not at all intentional. On radio this morning, Glenn explained that he received an email from Romney last night that shed a new light on the incident.

“Monday we were talking about… Mitt Romney trying to be the elder statesman and the 'anti-Jim DeMint.' – the Theodore Roosevelt of the party… And I just offhandedly said, ‘Farewell address is still in his hands.’ And Stu said, ‘Now you got to tell the story.’ So I did,” Glenn said. “Well, last night I get a note from Joe, who works for me. And he says, ‘Glenn, Mitt Romney sent you an email. It references your conversation on the air. My counsel would be to do as you always do and give a very measured response. I recommend the Abraham Lincoln method of a reply, rereading it and sending it.’ So I knew it wasn't going to be good.’”

Glenn a small portion of Romney’s email:

I heard I failed to send you a thank you note for your precious book you kindly gave me during the campaign. I am so sorry for the error, and I'm afraid that when you learn the reason I failed to send you a note, you will be even less happy.

“He is an honorable man because I wouldn't have wanted to write the letter to me,” Glenn said. “He never got the farewell address.”

That’s right. Romney never actually received the gift, which is why he never acknowledged it. More likely than not, the book was misplaced during the chaotic final days of the campaign. Even though the email made his "eyes bleed" from sadness, Glenn really admired Romney’s truthfulness.

“First of all, a man of honor, to have the balls to write that,” Glenn said. “He didn't even lie and say we got so busy and it's so great. He went the hardest possible route and said, ‘Yeah, I'm going to tell you [the truth]. It made my eyes bleed for about an hour. I got up at 3 o’clock this morning, and I read that note and I could not go back to sleep. I thought, ‘It's a farewell address!’”

“I frankly think that makes it better – the fact that he didn't get it,” Pat concluded. “I don't like the tact that he says he’s going to be the anti-Jim DeMint... But there are so many things about him I really like this a lot, and I like this a lot.”

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."
