WATCH: The incredible interview with the Berlin Candy Bomber

Glenn spoke with a living legend named Gail Halvorsen on TV last night, the original “Candy Bomber” from World War II. During the Berlin Airlift he began attaching little parachutes to chocolate candies and dropped them for German children to eat. He never could’ve imagined the everlasting impact this one small act would do.

While in Berlin for the Berlin Airlift, Halverson came across a group of children along the fence outside the airport. He was used to kids in Europe begging for candy when seeing American soldiers, but these didn't.

"It was against the rules to drop stuff out of airplanes, and I got along well because I followed by all the rules," Halverson said.

"When I did it, I hoped nobody found out about it. I met those kids at the fence, as you saw, and when they didn’t beg for any chocolate, and they didn’t have any for two years — kids around the world where I flew before would run you down in the street in this uniform, 1945 uniform, and grab your arm. After an hour when they didn’t beg and I turned to leave to catch my Jeep, I realize that, and I felt my pocket, and I said I’ve got to give them something. And I had the two sticks of gum," Halvorsen

He broke the gum in his pocket into four pieces and pushed it through the fence. Their faced lit up with joy.

"I said I’ve just got to give those kids more. And I didn’t want anybody to find out about it because I didn’t have permission," he explained.

"So Gail, when you’ve looked at this now for the last several decades, and you’re thinking about this, you’ve had to have reflected on this. What is it about the candy drop, what you and your fellow copilots and everybody else got involved eventually? What is it that you think…why has this lasted? Why has this become so legendary? What is it about this," Glenn asked.

"Well, I think it comes back to enemies becoming friends and how does that happen. Jesus Christ said greater love than this have no man than he lay down his life for a friend. Thirty-one of my Air Force buddies and 39 of my British comrades gave their lives, not for a friend, but for an enemy who became a friend. So the bottom line I think it is, it just exemplifies the durability of the truth that the only way to real happiness in life is not a bigger car than the neighbor or a bigger house but getting outside yourself and serving someone else. Serving others is the only solution to happiness," Halverson said.

"And the idea that…it was those kids, not me. Scrooge had been standing at the fence, and the kids had done the same thing. So the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow, and the metamorphosis from killing each other just a little while before to flying day and night is the thing that changed everything around."

"I came back, I lived in a barn, up in the attic of a barn. There wasn’t room in the inn at first. One of my buddies bombed Berlin during the war not long before, and here they were just getting back to the states, meeting the family so the kids didn’t say who’s that stranger coming through the door, and they asked they go back to Germany. And my buddy bombed them. He got shot up."

"One member was almost dead when he got him back to England, and I looked at him in the eyes, and I said, 'Friend, how do you feel leaving your family again and feeding the guys that tried to kill you?' And he took a moment, he looked at me, and he said, 'Hal, it’s a whole lot better to feed them than it is to kill them. I’m glad to be back.' That’s the healing balm on the wounds of war, the service."

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."
