We should look to the people of Iceland for some of our answers

More than 10,000 Icelanders offered to take in Syrian refugees after a prominent author from Iceland publicly requested her country's government allow citizens to help with the crisis. In an open letter posted on Facebook, Bryndis Bjorgvinsdottir pleaded with the country's welfare minister to raise the cap of just 50 asylum seekers per year. She said she knew someone who could take in five fleeing Syrians and asked for others to express public support.

On radio Tuesday, Glenn urged his listeners to take this story to heart and then do something about it.

"Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, 'I'll offer up my home. I'll offer up my money.' I'm asking you to do the same thing today," Glenn said.

Glenn said he has a goal of raising $10 million before Christmas to rescue Christians fleeing from ISIS.

"If you have no money, can you house somebody? Can your neighborhood house somebody? Can your church house a family? Can you help spread the word? Can you help just as a prayer warrior? What is it that you can do? Because everybody has something," Glenn said.

GLENN: We can save 2,000 people or more by Christmas. 2,000 people. Just so, you know, that's 800 more people than Schindler and his list saved. We can save 2,000 souls. And that's only if 400 churches get involved. 400 churches that is, hey, I will take a family. Now, it's $25,000 to get those families here. We'll break all those families down for you by the end of the week so you know exactly where the money is going, how it's being used. But did you see what Iceland is doing? Because Iceland is only a country of 300,000 people. 300,000 people in the entire country.

But one woman got on Facebook. She's a prominent author in Iceland. And she couldn't take it. And so she went on Facebook and she launched a campaign after the government said we'll take 60 refugees. We'll take 60. She thought, that's not enough.

So she went on Facebook and she said, who else will take some? Who will volunteer as a family to take a family in? I'm asking you, which churches -- will your church volunteer to take a family in? In the space of 24 hours, 10,000 Icelanders offered up their homes and urged their government to do more.

People wrote in, I'm a single mother with a 6-year-old son, I can take a child in need. I'm a teacher, I'll teach a child to speak, read, write. Adjust to our society. Another one wrote, I have clothes, a bed, toys, everything children would need. I'll pay for the airline ticket even to get them here.

Out of a country of 300,000 people, 10,000 people in 24 hours said, I'll offer up my home. I'll offer up my money. I'm asking you to do the same thing today. I'm going to post in a few minutes just a quick note that just says, what churches will take a family? What people will take one person? Will you offer up your home? See, when I started telling you that we are going to repeat the 1930s, everybody thought I was nuts. When I said, we're going to have to be a people that will hide or take people. Are you -- are you willing to be one of the righteous among the nations?

I thought this would happen with the Jews. I didn't think it would happen with the Christians. I thought it would happen with the Jews. But it's happening with the Christians. So now, what are we going to do? I ask you again what I asked you six, seven, eight, ten years ago. When the world goes mad and the world is crucifying people, when they're building houses of horror and concentrate camps -- I mean, what's the difference between the concentrate camp at Auschwitz and the one barrack in Auschwitz that held female prisoners that were used as prostitutes, used as pleasure receptacles, forced to have sex -- what's the difference between that and the 8-year-old girl that just escaped ISIS, who has testified that she was raped up to ten times a day every single day? What is her life like? What's the difference?

There is none. We said never again. Well, never again is now. I have a goal of raising $10 million by Christmas. That's a huge goal. I don't know if we can even make that. That's the largest amount of money we've ever asked to raise, by far. By far.

Maybe we can only make 5 million. I don't know. We've already raised 3 million. And not from big donors. Big checks. The average check is $100. It's the average listener. But it's the average listener that wants their name in the book of life. They want their name. This is the time that giants are born. And you're either going to sit on the sidelines. And not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. You're going to sit on the sidelines, and your name is going to be written in the book of death. Or you'll find a way -- if you have no money, can you house somebody? Can your neighborhood house somebody? Can your church house a family? Can you help spread the word? Can you help just as a prayer warrior? What is it that you can do? Because everybody has something.

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."
