This man had been drinking since six in the morning before reaching out for help. Glenn gave him the same advice that had saved his own life

Things got very serious and emotional on radio this morning when a caller reached out looking for answers. Ed, a listener from Massachusetts, called into the show looking for help and guidance in his struggle with alcoholism. Ed had just quit his job as a bus driver because his withdrawal symptoms had endangered the kids. Glenn, a recovering alcoholic himself, did his best to put Ed on the right path, discussing how faith helped save his life and asking Ed to get himself to an Alcoholic Anonymous meeting as soon as possible.

"Well, yesterday I lost my job because I promised myself that I would never jeopardize the kids. I'm a school bus driver. So I told them that I was quitting," Ed said. "Because of my shakes, and I was withdrawing really bad."

Ed admitted he had been drinking since the early morning, and was already quite drunk when he called into the show.

"Do you want to be sober?" Glenn asked.

"God yeah. Oh, God, yes."

"Well, you won't make it without two things. You won't make it without God, and you won't make it without AA," Glenn said.

"Here's the thing, the whole God thing, that's what I was calling about. I don't know that I believe in God," Ed said.

"Neither did I. Neither did I," Glenn said. "In fact, when I was in exactly your same shoes where I was trying to hold my sobriety, I couldn't. And I read a letter from Thomas Jefferson to his nephew Peter Carr, and it got to religion. And he said to Peter: If you're going to be a man, these are the things you have to know. And when it comes to religion, above all things, fix reason firmly in her seat, and question with boldness even the very existence of God. For if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear."

What Jefferson was trying to tell Peter was that if there is a God, you will find him but you have to want to find him and be willing to look for him everywhere. Glenn asked Ed to look at the seeming coincidences that led to Ed making it on to the air to have a conversation.

"Ed, do you know how few calls I take? How long have you listened to this program?" Glenn said. "Don't appreciate the phone screener. Don't appreciate me. Don't appreciate anything. It's not a coincidence. Out of all the phone calls that come in, out of all of the times, out of all of the days, your phone call comes in today, and I decide today I'm going to take phone calls, and you're on the air. That's not a coincidence."

"Everything in your life, Ed, is a message, and here's what the message is: God is your father, whether you recognize him or not. He's your father. You can dress him any way you want. You can make him look any way you want, but it doesn't change him, it only changes our access to him, if you will, but it doesn't change him. He is our dad, and he always will be our dad. And he loves us no matter what we do. And there's nothing in your life that has happened to you that he hasn't been there the whole time. No matter what -- no matter what it has been. No matter how bad it's been to you or no matter what how bad it was that you did, he was there. So he already knows. There's no hiding from him."

"I wish I was as strong as you," Ed said.

"Well, you will be, Ed, if you choose to be, one day you will be," Glenn said. "I love you. Get to an AA meeting today. Would you hang up the phone and get to an AA meeting today. Would you do that?"

"I will do that. Yes, I will," Ed said.

After Ed hung up to go get help, Glenn took a minute to talk to the audience about the struggles we all face everyday.

"You're struggling with whatever you're struggling with. And you're looking at everybody else and saying, how do they do it? The answer: They don't. We can't judge people because we don't know what's going on in their lives.

We don't know what others are struggling with. But the best thing that we can do is just admit to ourselves, I can't make it. I can't make it on my own. I can't make it on my own. I'm going to find a way, but I can't compare myself to others, and I'm not going to be perfect. And I need others. And I'm not going to look at everybody else and say, oh, wow, they're so perfect because they're not. Nobody is. They're all struggling. Every single one of us is struggling with something deep and powerful and we don't even know it. We just need to be there for each other."

"Life is a hospital. We are all patients. There is only one doctor."

God.

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

A Colorado mother of three, Erin Lee, said her 12-year-old daughter was recruited by teachers to attend an "art club" after school, only to find it was a GSA or Gay Straight Awareness/Alliance Club. Not only was the family misled about the purpose of the club, but a guest speaker — who told the middle school students that "if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender" — also encouraged the kids to keep secrets from their parents.

Lee told Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday that her "shy, vulnerable, barely 12-year-old daughter" had just moved to Wellington Middle School in Fort Collins, Colorado, when she was invited by her art and home room teachers to attend an "art club" after school.

"She texted us [and] we gave her permission for art club," Lee said of her daughter. "When she got there, it was actually GSA, or Gender and Sexuality Awareness or Alliance Club. The teacher had invited in a completely unqualified outside presenter who did unthinkable things with the children. I'll give you the CliffsNotes version. She told them, 'what you hear in here, keep in here.' She used flags to use defining words, telling them if they're not fully comfortable in their bodies, that means they're transgender. Then she would hand out the flags and stickers and bracelets and other swag. She told them that 'queer' is a label for when they're still figuring out their sexuality.

"She did the 'Genderbread person,' which explicitly asked kids who they're sexually attracted to, so 11, 12, 13-year-olds with peers and adults in the room, talking about their sexuality. She handed out her personal contact information and invited them to connect on teen chat platforms, like WhatsApp and Discord, where she knows that parents are not monitoring the conversation. She told them that families may not be safe, and it's okay to lie about where they are. And in fact, the art teacher, as my daughter was leaving the room that day, pulled her aside and said, 'remember, you don't have to tell your mom.'"

The outside presenter, Kimberly Chambers, is the director of SPLASH Youth of Northern Colorado, an organization that targets children as young as 5 years old, as indicated on its own website. Chambers is a paid employee of the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment with access to children’s information, according to a Parents Defending Education incident report.

Lee went on to say that, after learning from her daughter what happened, she and her husband contacted the school principal, who confirmed that the meeting was, in fact, held in secret and they are always held in secret because as a public school they have to offer children a "safe space." Lee then turned to the school board, but said she was ignored "for months." Finally, she was able to meet with board member Kristen Draper, who turned out to be a close friend and "strong ally" to Chambers. Draper also volunteers for an arm of SPLASH called SKITTLES.

"FOIA emails showed that [the school] immediately colluded when I objected to what happened," Lee told Glenn. "They immediately colluded with the school board to keep me quiet. They referenced parents who find out as 'barriers' that the school board has removed. They talked about sending social services into my home because I didn't like what they did with my child," she continued.

"My daughter had never expressed gender dysphoria before. She never expressed that she'd had any trouble at home. They never spoke to me. I never spoke to any of the people that did these things before they decided to talk about calling CPS ... In the state of Colorado, if my child had said to the CPS that I wasn't affirming her transgender identity, I firmly believe they would have removed her from the home. And the people knew this when they suggested that CPS come to our home to remove our child," Lee warned. "Colorado is off the rails in particular, but this is happening everywhere."

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.
