Why does Glenn believe this strategy will win Hillary Clinton the White House?

Hillary Clinton has had a rough year. After bumbling through the nationwide book tour for her new memoir Hard Choices, Clinton has seen her approval rating dip to new lows. But that hasn’t quieted the 2016 rumors. On radio this morning, Glenn shared details of a conversation he had with a Democratic friend about the 2016 presidential election that has him convinced Clinton can take the White House.

“I want to talk to you a little bit about the upcoming election. There was a friend who is a friend of Hillary’s people… They don't know that we're friends. And this friend was saying to me, you know, ‘Hillary is going to win.’ This is last week when I was on vacation,” Glenn said. “Then they explained what their friends of Hillary and the left told them… the strategy is. And when I heard the strategy, I did this, ‘Oh, my gosh. She's going to win the presidency.’”

According to Glenn’s friend, Clinton’s aids are privy to the tactics the right will use to diminish her reputation – primarily, the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. But, as Glenn explained, Clinton will utilize a much more conciliatory and optimistic approach that will draw on the work her husband did during his tenure in the White House.

“Here's what Hillary is going to do,” Glenn said. “Do you remember when America was good? Do you remember when we had jobs, and we were building towards a brighter future, and things were really happening? During the Clinton Administration, we had it under control. Things were good… We're going to do better. We're going to replant our flag in the traditional things that you understand… We can talk about Ronald Reagan all we want, but nobody remembers Ronald Reagan. It was too long ago. We remember Ronald Reagan, but the Clinton years are the golden years.”

Glenn admitted he and Pat have had conversations about how they would “gladly take Bill Clinton right now” simply because things have gotten so out-of-control. While the Clinton presidency was not nearly as triumphant as history has remembered it, even Glenn said he remembers those years fondly.

While Pat agreed the yesteryear strategy is “viable,” Stu wasn’t so convinced.

“That is a horrific strategy,” Stu said bluntly. “There is a great-on-paper argument. But the issue with Hillary Clinton is: She could have done this in 2008 and was unable to do it.”

As Pat explained, Clinton will try to tout the supposed budget surplus her husband left office with and the burgeoning economy, but he believes those arguments could easily be torn apart by her opponent.

“She'll remind us that the economy was supposedly great and ‘we left a surplus when we left office,’ which was all nonsense,” Pat said. “That's what they'll claim because they've claimed this for 15 years… [but] that surplus was gone. It was a surplus on paper. It was not a surplus in reality.”

“Do you just ignore the truth when they bring those arguments up,” Stu asked.

Ultimately, Glenn believes these are all technicalities that will do little to thwart the support this sort of approach will garner.

“That's a technicality nobody is going to listen to,” Glenn concluded. [This] will work… While we're talking about technicalities and the past, they're going to be talking about a past that was brightly remembered. And they will talk about the America we will become… They absolutely have a vision, and they have a vision that Americans generally remember and are comfortable with and like.”

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."
