Glenn: "I can't believe what I'm looking at"

All this weekend at the Mercury Studios in Dallas, Texas the Miracles and Massacres Museum and the lines are already out the door. Glenn found himself routinely saying ‘I can’t believe I’m looking at that’ as he took the tour, passing by amazing item after amazing item. Then there’s the ridiculous 4D experience - Glenn explained on radio today.

"The staff has been working last night at 2:00 a.m. We finished the last piece of the museum. And I can't even say that. I finished my last part of the museum and then everybody else was working all the way through the night, then went upstairs to the American Dream Labs to where the 4-D experience was finished," Glenn said.

"We had to reshoot a bunch of stuff in the middle of the night last night because I didn't like it. I'm just -- I'm a little choked up because I just walked out of the studio or station 33 where we have put this 4-D experience together. It is phenomenal. It is absolutely phenomenal."

Glenn was amazed at the way his team at the American Dream Labs had taken his idea for the 4D D-Day Experience and turned it into a reality.

"It's really amazing. And now what they've done is they've put all these screens that you can actually see through. You don't even know there's a screen there. And you can see through them. So there's multiple layers of screens and projection of war and it's phenomenal. And it tells the story of D-Day and it's remarkable."

Last night, Glenn changed a lot of the museum to make it more accessible to children who were coming to the studios and to build it that way from the start the next time the museum is open. The move was inspired by Walt Disney, who designed his parks with kids in mind.

"The one thing I thought about this morning at 3:00 in the morning is I should have been on my knees not in prayer but on my knees to see it from a child's perspective," Glenn explained. "[Walt Disney] would get down on his knees the whole time and he would look at things [from a child's viewpoint]. That's how he got the perspective of the buildings right. That's all forced perspective. The buildings look bigger than they are and they did it through stage techniques."

"But when [Walt Disney] was designing his park, he was down on his knees the whole time. What does this look like as an 8-year-old child? And that's the way we need to design this museum. That's the way this whole thing needs to be done. And right now, we have spent two weeks just putting things in just so you can see them, but it all needs to be done in a way. We've got to be able to tell history. The only way we're going to save our country is to be able to sell the story, tell the story of who we are and why we're here."

He also explained that he plans to find new ways to bring these experiences to people where they live in a way that doesn't cost them anything.

"We just have to give these things because you need to see it. You just need to see it. And we need to bring it to you," Glenn explained. "You need to be recharged. You need to have somebody to fill your tank without wanting something in return. And it is my greatest desire to be able to given things to you that I know we can do, that will hold you up without wanting or asking for anything in return. To serve one another."

In the end, Glenn said he wants to do these things because of the special relationship that exists between himself and the audience.

"You don't know how much you bolster me. We have this great strange friendship. You don't know who I am. I don't know who you are. But you -- you think you know who I am but you listen and you're probably pretty close," Glenn said. " I feel you. It's the weirdest thing. And I think it's the reason why we're successful, is because I can feel you. It's weird. And when I get a chance to meet you, it means the world to me. It just means the world to me."

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
