Touching tribute to Scooter Jolley: ‘He wasn't just a listener — he had become family’

Many years ago we got a call from a homeless man in New Jersey. We were living in New York City while he was living in his van.

He called us on the air one day and we put him on. He was one of the clearest voices we had heard. He knew who he was and who we were as a nation.

He was not ashamed of where he was in life and he refused a handout. He wanted work.

When we moved to Texas, he moved too. A land of opportunity.

He no longer lived in his van and he worked hard. He always volunteered for our service projects. Be it Restoring Love or our museum opening.

Recently, we got a call that he was sick and only had hours to live. All of us rushed to his hospital bed.

He wasn't 'just a listener' he had become family.

When we walked in he was giving his end of life instructions to his son. When his son saw us he began to cry. I wasn't sure if they were tears of joy as his son was from the NE and not a fan at all.

They were tears of joy. He loves his father and suddenly knew our heart and love for this amazing man. We loved him as much as he loved us.

I found out that his son was getting married in three weeks and Scooter had been told that he wouldn't make it three days.

He asked us for a blessing, as Pat and I hold "the Priesthood" in our faith. We anointed him with oil and prayed with him, for him and over him.

Now, three and a half months later we got a call again last night. The wedding has passed and Scooter is ready to go home.

Please pray for this amazing man and his trip home to see his Father.

It has been a great experience for all of us to get to know him. Our audience will be greatly diminished by his passing but the ranks of those who watch over us will swell with a valiant warrior.

Scooter, now your real work begins. Keep an eye out for us and watch our back.

It is an honor to know you.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."
