'Don't tell me there's nothing you can do' - Disabled vet donates entire savings to save Christians

Glenn read a letter on radio Monday from a disabled Army veteran who had mailed in a small jar of change. In the letter, Joel from Montana asked Glenn to use it to help rescue Christians in the Middle East.

The coins added up to just $37.32. Joel said it was all he had and he wanted it to be used to save lives. After reading the letter, Glenn pointed out there is no giant corporation coming in with a giant check to save the lives of these suffering Christians.

"This is going to be done by you in dribs and drabs by people who you will never meet, by people who you will never know," Glenn said.

Since Joel doesn't work at a company that matches donations, someone on Twitter suggested we match it for him.

Read the touching letter below.

Dear Glenn,

I'm a 100 percent disabled Army veteran. I was not able to afford to visit my family for over six years. My parents never met my youngest two children. I saved every penny I had for the last six years, and I was finally able to introduce my two children to their grandparents last July.

Since that trip in July, I've been saving money for the next trip. I save my money in a jar. This is only two months of savings, but it's all that I have. And I gladly give it to you to help rescue the Christians overseas.

I proudly served my country from '93 to '98 in the Army, believing in America, believing in God, believing in the Constitution. Now, as I suffer from pain every day, I ask myself, "Really, was it worth it?"

Increasingly, I find myself answering that question, "No." Because I'm ashamed of myself. I'm ashamed of my country. I'm ashamed of our leaders. I'm ashamed now even of my beloved Army.

Don't feel sorry for me. I am currently working on getting a Ph.D. because I've got to get back into the fight. You're never out of the fight. There's always one more thing you can do. The stuff only sucks while you're doing it. I can't physically serve anymore, but I can help educate.

Please accept my donation to help save lives.

Joel

GLENN: I want to read a letter to you: Dear Glenn -- this comes from a guy in Montana named Joel.

Dear Glenn, I'm a 100 percent disabled Army veteran. I've not been able to afford to visit my family for over six years. My grandparents have never met my youngest two children. I saved every penny I had for the last six years, and I was finally able to introduce my two children to their grandparents last July.

He lives in Montana. His parents live in Wyoming. You get kind of an understanding of how little money this guy has.

Since that trip in July, I've been saving money for the next trip. I save my money in a jar. This is only two months of savings, but it's all that I have. And I gladly give it to you to help rescue the Christians overseas. I proudly served my country from '93 to '98 in the Army, believing in America, believing in God, believing in the Constitution. Now, as I suffer from pain every day, I ask myself, "Really. Was it worth it?" Increasingly, I find myself answering that question, "No." Because I'm ashamed of myself. I'm ashamed of my country. I'm ashamed of our leaders. I'm ashamed now even of my beloved Army.

Don't feel sorry for me. I am currently working on getting a Ph.D. because I got to get back into the fight. You're never out of the fight. There's always one more thing you can do. The stuff only sucks while you're doing it. I can't physically serve anymore, but I can help educate. Please accept my donation to help save lives. Joel.

(Dumps money out)

This is a man's life savings. Don't tell me there's nothing you can do. Joel is by himself and not able -- this isn't enough to save anybody's life over in the Middle East. And Joel could have said, "There's nothing I can do, and none of this will make a difference. I can't buy anybody's freedom with that. I can't get anybody out of Syria with that."

And he's right, by himself, he cannot. But see, this is the secret of Restoring Unity. By ourselves, we are weak. By ourselves, we are broke. By ourselves, we are poor and poor in spirit. By ourselves, we can do little.

But once we join with the Almighty and then we start to join with others, we can change the world.

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."
