What the hell is going on?

Depression being treated by assisted suicide in Belgium. Children crucified by ISIS for failing to fast during Ramadan. The mentally handicapped being used as suicide bombers. Young women being sold into sex slavery. Terrible atrocities are taking place all over the globe - are you brave enough to take a stand? Glenn shares just a few of the disturbing stories of the day and an amazing story of history of one man who went to extremes to uncover one of the darkest moments in world history. Have you heard the story of Witold Pilecki? And will anyone be brave enough to do the things he did in WW2?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

We don't see things anymore. Because if we see things, it requires us to do something. And too many of us don't know what to do.

24-year-old woman named Laura, she's in Belgium. She's been going to the psychiatrist in Belgium since she was a kid. She's had suicidal thoughts since she was about ten.

The psychiatrist that she's seeing now diagnosed her depression as treatable. And I'm quoting. Her condition of depression is treatable by death. End quote.

Well, gee, thanks, Doc. I think a lot of aches and pains and troubles that I have might be treatable by death.

Pat, your back pain, I've got a solution for you. Death!

PAT: I'm not sure that's the most viable solution for me right now.

GLENN: She just died. Lethal injection.

PAT: (sighs)

GLENN: She was allowed to be killed. Her depression has been cured.

Why is this happening? Because we don't see people as people. We don't see people as valuable.

Turkey, Turkish authorities on Sunday have opened up their borders, and 10,000 people have just come across. They were running from the terror group ISIS.

In Syria, over the weekend, ISIS crucified and killed two children for failing to fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan. By the way, children are not required to fast during Ramadan. ISIS said they were. They crucified them.

And how appropriate, they nailed up above their cross their crime for all to see.

Some things haven't changed from 2,000 years ago. Apparently, they were caught eating. ISIS has beheaded and crucified a number of children on a number of occasions. Back in February, the United Nations Committee on the rights of the child detailed some of the horrific abuses carried out by ISIS.

One of those charges is that they're now using mentally handicapped children as suicide bombers. They can teach them to go over there and push this button.

They are using children as suicide bombers as young as eight years old. Those are generally the boys. The girls are being sold as sex slaves in the marketplace, again, as young as eight years old.

What are you going to do? What is it we do? How do you stop something like that? Well, I'm a firm believer that America sees love versus evil, and they will choose love.

That's getting weaker and weaker as the days go by. But I still believe that evil will overplay its hand. The lies will end. The ends never justify the means.

We need to do what we're supposed to do with a pure heart. Without anger. Without angst.

We're to do unto others -- ye without sin, don't lie or cheat. Respect your elders. Be true to yourself. Don't judge unless you want to be judged.

Union workers are no different than I am. Millennials. Parents. Conservatives. Libertarians. Honest liberals. They're no different. There are a few principles that we all agree on. Crucifying children I think is one of those.

Selling children into sex slavery is one of those. We may not know how to stop it. But we have to be able to hold it at bay. We have to recognize it. You see, there's a difference. There's a real difference between what has gone in the past and what has happened now. And God will not hold us blameless.

After World War II, we said never again. But never again, we didn't know what was happening.

Let me tell you about somebody from history that you've probably never heard of. He was a guy just like you.

There was one difference. He volunteered to prove that it was happening. The allies said they didn't know what was happening in Auschwitz. So Witold Pilecki volunteered to be put on a plane to Auschwitz. He was inmate number 4859. He got there. They tattooed his arm. He volunteered to go into Auschwitz. Because we didn't know what was going on.

So he went. He talked to prisoners. He watched. And then he got smuggled parts, and he put together a radio, and he transmitted that information out of Auschwitz. He escaped Auschwitz, believe it or not. He got back out. Just in time for the Russians to come.

They tried him for espionage. We don't know where he was buried. But that man went in to prove what was happening.

We know now what's happening. Never again means now.

How do we wake people up? I don't know. I don't know.

I think we need to worry about ourselves. Stay awake. Stay awake. What happens when you've had such a shock to your body and you have a concussion, what do they say? As a nation, we have a concussion. We have had major impact in the last 15 years. We don't even know who we are anymore. We have a concussion. What do we have to do? We have to slap each other awake all the time. Don't go to sleep. Don't go to sleep. Don't go to sleep. If we go to sleep, we die.

Our nation has a concussion. Don't go to sleep. Wake up! Stand up. Grab your children. Grab your wife. Grab your husband. Stand up. Slap them across the face. Don't worry about your neighbor. Worry about yourself. Worry about your church. Worry about your synagogue. Worry about people the most like you, and keep them awake so we can help the people who are least like us.

Here's what I would like you to do. On Thursday, we're going to make an announcement on exactly what's going to happen on 8/28 and 8/29. I want you to be there on August 28th and August 29th in Birmingham, Alabama. I want you to go to your church and I want you to tell your church -- we want to put a bus together. Because we want to be the seeds, and we want to bring this back home. Because they're going to give us information on what is happening over in the Middle East and how we can help. And we're going to stand. And we're going to start to link arms with churches that are the least like us all over the country. And we're going to begin to move as one body. Because the body needs feet. The body needs hands. The body needs eyes. The body needs a mouth. The body needs a torso. And we got to stop rejecting the hands -- the hands has to stop rejecting the fingers.

We have to start moving as one body. That doesn't mean that we join our theology. Because we're never going to agree on theology. And that's okay.

Let's stand together and keep each other awake. I want you to go to your church and I want you to go to the members of our church or your local community, and you get a bus together, and you say, we're going to go down to 8/28 and we're going to stand and we're going to make a difference. Because this is not, let's just stand and get together and feel good. This is stand, get together, learn, take it back, and do.

When something happens in your community, we're going to be there together. When there is somebody like there was in Charleston, we're going to go together. When something happens in Baltimore, we're going to be there together. When something happens at the Supreme Court, we're going to be there together. When there is a problem, we will be there.

When something is happening in the Middle East, we will be there. We will provide aid. We will provide comfort. We will provide love. We will provide the truth. We will stand. We will not be afraid. We will do the things that we know are right because we answer to no man. We answer to God.

I don't know if I could be Witold Pilecki. I don't know if I could have the number 4859 on my arm. But I'll be damned if I'm not going to try. I only have one life. And I'm swinging for the fences. Join me. Please. The time is now.

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."
