'Notice and act': Glenn's deeply personal thoughts on love

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bob's for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a gift. Time, dancing with her two left footed husband.

We were getting ready to go in when something came up that forced us to leave.

We met this nice couple at the door who was going in to buy tickets. I stopped them and offered our tickets to them.

He recognized me right away but didn't say anything, just smiled and nodded. I nodded back and smiled.

When he offered to buy the tickets we refused. I told him to pay the tickets forward to someone else and began to walk away. As we did, he apparently told his wife who came running up behind me and said, "I just want to hug you please."

It was so nice. Later on the way home we stopped for some gas, I went in and there was a man and his son. They were from out of town. Again, so kind.

Then I met a man who came across the store and said, "I am from Australia. I have a two hour train ride and I listen to your podcasts. Lately, you are the only thing that gives me hope."

With such joy in his eyes, he shook my hand and looked almost through me and said: "thank you."

I cannot tell you how uplifting it was to hear. Especially tonight.

We may never meet, but I believe the spirit speaks to all of us in our lives.

Because I am a known person, yet most strangers to me, people will say what is on there mind and it more often than not it is something that helps me and on many occasions is an answer to a prayer or plea to my Father in Heaven.

I urge you to act and speak through your "promptings" or "feelings" (however you describe that moment when you know you should act or speak out).

You never know, but that little bit of human connection may be the only positive connection that person has made that day.

You are the answer to someone's prayer right now. Who is on your mind to call, write, reach out.

Maybe you are lying next to them reading this. Maybe they are upstairs all tucked in. Kiss them and tell them: the truth; I love you; I am sorry; I need you; thank you or whatever it is that you should not let pass another second.

Call them tomorrow. Just tell them! "I meant to call and then things spiraled out of control and then time passed and now I feel weird about it." They will understand. They have been there.

It might be a stranger or someone you don't know well that you will see at church. Maybe, like with me tonight, it is just someone standing in line at the gas station.

Perhaps it is someone that lives alone or at work that just really needs to talk to someone that cares. It doesn't have to be deep or take much time. It just has to be real.

If we are going to fix our country and world, we need to fix ourselves first. It will take acts of epic courage in the end.

Let's begin to strengthen that muscle today.

Say the things that are on your heart.

Turn to that person in line at the store and express the feeling that you are being given.

Let's not just notice people, let's really see them and then notice and act on how we "feel" and on what we hear from the spirit.

I am always turned off by us Christians, even in my own church and me included! We all want to get people baptized. I get it. I want to share what I have found as well. It changed my life. But we spend so much time trying to figure out ways to talk to people about Christ.

Why don't we figure out how to just LOVE EACH OTHER? No motive or hidden agenda.

If I could master anything in life it would be this: To truly love people, the first time I meet them. To have such compassion for others that I would want to really listen to them and see what is happening in their life good and bad. To be able to do that without fear! Wow! What a world we would experience.

I doubt I will ever "master" that but I think the first course in Love 101, just might be to notice and act.

I am greatly blessed that so many feel they know me. In many ways we do know each other. Perhaps we do "know each other" more than any other "celebrity" and "fan" group out there. Maybe it is because we share so much in places like Facebook.

Please always remember, to God, everyone is a VIP and our head and hearts are His Facebook. "Share" His comments when you know He just "liked" someone.

Thank you to all those who answered my prayers tonight.

From Dallas,

where the greatest woman I know is laying next to me because long ago she noticed me and then had the courage to to turn around, come back a few steps, shake my hand and say "thanks for all the laughs on the radio,"

Goodnight America.

Tonight, I was going to take my lovely wife out to Billy Bobs for her birthday. It is really all that she wanted as a...

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."
