'We have people on the ground' - Glenn explains why he has to be cryptic about the Nazarene Fund

On radio Monday, Glenn gave an update on what the U.S. now wants to do with refugees from ISIS and from Syria.

"John Kerry has come out and said, 'we're going to take 200,000 refugees.' Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to break down the difference between refugees and those seeking asylum.

"Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over," Glenn said. "The Muslim world can take care of the refugees."

Glenn explained there's a huge difference between refugees who will be accepted back into their countries and those who are marked for death and have nowhere to go.

"What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum," Glenn said.

Glenn told listeners the Nazarene Fund to rescue Christians seeking asylum has raised over $7.5 million and people are now on the ground in the Middle East, working to secure their release. And while Glenn is typically pretty open about the details of his ventures, he said he won't be able to share very much during the next several weeks to protect those involved.

"I have to be cryptic, but I have to tell you the main thing I'm going to ask you for is prayer," Glenn said.

I don't have the latest number. But it's probably about $7.5 million that we have raised here in the last three and a half weeks. And I've never seen anything like this. Every dollar, so, you know, every dollar of the Nazarene Fund goes to help free those Christians in the Middle East. And I do emphasize that for a reason. The president has now come out and said -- John Kerry has come out and said, "We're going to take 200,000 refugees." Well, here's the problem with this. We don't want refugees.

Saudi Arabia has more than enough room. Jordan has enough room for refugees. Europe and the United States and the western world does not need Muslim refugees. There is enough room in Muslim countries, let them do their five pillars with their own people.

Refugees connotate a group of people that are going to go back home once the conflict is over. These people are not coming home. Now, how do we vet them? Well, let me tell you. You know how you get on a list for a refugee to come to the United States? You have to go to our embassy or our consulate, and you have to be put on a list. Well, who is doing the vetting there? Who is putting the people on the list? Well, in those countries, we hire Muslims to do that. So how many Muslims are coming in compared to how many Christians are coming in? If you're a Christian -- the number one we complaint we get from talking to the Christians over there is, "We can't get into the United States because there's no Christians that work at the embassies that will even listen to us. We're second-class citizens."

So you don't want refugees. You want those who are seeking asylum. There is a huge difference. And what is happening is, we are being told, "You know, you don't want any of these people anymore." Yes, you do. You want those who are seeking asylum. The Muslim world can take care of the refugees because we have seen how refugees in the Muslim world are used. And eventually nobody wants them. And they are going to create a Palestinian state in our own country and in Europe. It will be the same thing. The refugees never go home. Ask Jordan. There is no solution there.

They are used by Islamists to change the course of countries. What we are looking for are people who are seeking asylum.

Now, we have raised about seven and a half million dollars in the last three weeks. And because I am who I am and because I also overshare, because I am transparent, like it or not, sometimes in all the wrong ways I am transparent, I am -- I've put people in danger. Our own people. And we have -- also, because I am who I am and we're vocal -- and, you know, It Is About Islam, is being sold in the Middle East. The book.

When I got a call from the publisher and they said, "We just received a rather large order for your book in Arabic in the Middle East." Like, "That's not going to be good, is it, for my travel over -- anywhere in that?" No.

I'm going to ask you for a favor. I am -- I'm not going to talk about this for the next few weeks. I'm going to kind of just not talk about it. Because we have people on the ground. And I'm not going to give you anymore information than that. We have people now that are trying to get out, but if they are known that they're trying to get out with us, it puts everybody in danger.

And so what I'm asking you for is just a pause on information for a while. And let our proof be in the pudding. There are some things that are happening around the world because everything is changing so rapidly. You know, I think what's really a good thing is these countries over in Europe, they -- they were saying, "You know, we're not going to take any asylum seekers. We're not going to take anybody." But now when they have this group of, you know, 400,000 20-somethings, men who are coming over that are Muslim and you can't tell the difference between the Muslim and the Islamist and Europe is freaking out, they look like haters. They won't take anybody.

So what a lot of these countries are now starting to think and consider and do is, they are -- they are trying -- we are -- they are -- they are -- people are trying to convince them that it would be in their best interest to not look like haters and turn everybody away. It might be in their best interest to look and vet in an organized fashion a large number of Christians and bring the large number of Christians into their nation and let the Arab world deal with the Muslims because they're best equipped to know who the good ones are and who the bad ones are. We're best equipped to know who the good Christians are and who the bad Christians are. And we are looking at levels of presidents and prime ministers at this moment trying to get countries all around the world to take them.

And you are leading the world. When I say that, I mean that sincerely. You are leading the world in this effort. And so we will have more to report here in the coming weeks. But I said that we were going to make some dramatic moves by Christmas, and I believe we are going to do that and maybe more before Christmas. And I'll give you more details as I can. But I would just ask for this: More than money, more than anything else, pray, please. Pray for those people who are on the ground trying to get them out. Those who need to get out. And those leaders of countries, including our own to see the difference between a refugee and an asylum seeker. And see the wisdom in taking asylum seekers.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
