Some people are saying these trumpets are a sign of the end times

For over a decade, people have captured strange noises on video all over the world. No one knows for sure what is causing the strange trumpet-like sounds, and some are wondering if it could be a sign of the end times.

The Daily Mail reports: "Sounding like a trumpet or a collective from a brass section of an orchestra, a selection of videos shot from the Canada to Ukraine, via the U.S., Germany and Belarus show strange goings on above us. And the eerie sounds have been continuously heard at all different times and locations for almost a decade."

"It's weird. It's weirder to see the video because you're just seeing the skies all over the world," Glenn said.

People are drawing connections between the sounds and Revelations 8:2 which says, "And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets." Those trumpets are said to herald the beginning of the end times.

"No big deal. Don't worry about it," Pat joked.

While the world is certainly at an interesting time - the Pope is telling people to prepare for martyrdom and Christians are being beheaded in the Middle East - Glenn's not convinced these are Biblical trumpets. After all, they don't sound all that majestic and heavenly.

"I don't think this is God," Glenn said. "They suck."

"He has Louis Armstrong up there. Come on," Pat joked.

When TheBlaze reported on these sounds in 2013, they quoted a city spokesperson who blamed a blade being ground down on a grader. "The grader blade needed to be straightened. Kind of gets ground down, and it makes a very strange noise. It’s as simple as that," the spokesperson said.

One listener, Monica, isn't buying it.

"Glenn, we hear that sound all the time. It is a shofar. It's a ram's horn. It's a biblical instrument. My husband plays it all the time," Monica said. "We play it on the Sabbath. On the High Holy Days. The Passovers. The Feast of Tabernacles. Pentecost coming up, we'll be playing it. And we both looked at each other, my husband and I, and we said, oh, my goodness, that's a shofar. And we could play it for you right now. I think the father in heaven is playing his shofar."

"Now, if you listen to like the 1967, the war, when they took over the Temple Mount you will hear those guys playing the shofar in unison. When you hear this, you'll hear many men playing these, some women, but they will play it and you can't believe your ears. This is what they played at Jericho when the walls came tumbling down."

"It is heavenly. And I believe the Father is sharpening his sword. This is a trumpet call for people to get ready. This is amazing. I've never heard of these recordings. When we heard the sound, it was so familiar to our ears. I'm telling you, Glenn, this is a biblical sign. And I believe that the shofars are sounding."

Monica has been a listener since Glenn's days in Tampa where he used to organize the "schlub club", listeners who would call in with a coordinated weird opinion on a news story. He wasn't sure if Monica as sincere in her shlomo theory, or if she was pranking the,.

Glenn admitted that while some part of him wants to say this could be trumpets from Heaven, there could be a much more mundane explanation.

Watch a portion of the analysis below:

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
