The Most Powerful Man in America Today

You know who I think the most powerful man in America is today? The most powerful man in America 100 years ago was a dead man. He still is. It's just a different dead man. One hundred years ago, the most powerful man in America was George Washington.

His eyes gazed out over this nation. His influence reached beyond the grave. We used to have to memorize in school his Farewell Address. We don't even know his Farewell Address. Most people don't even know he gave a Farewell Address. I shouldn't even say that. I bet you there's 20 percent that don't even know who George Washington is.

In his Farewell Address, he talked about this. He talked about foreign entanglements and how it would be the death of America. He talked about spending too much and how it would be the death of America. He talked about losing our faith and how it would be the death of America.

He brought up about five different things that said, "This is the secret. This is what made us who we are. These are the things you must avoid." But what's really telling is he warned us against the parties. He warned us that these two parties would start to fight and these two parties would start to make it about parties over principles, parties over country. And they would start to divide the people into two separate camps. This is in George Washington's Farewell Address. And then the parties would get so vitriolic that they would start punishing the other parties.

We heard this with Barack Obama, when he gave his speech time and time again on the road. We're going to punish our enemies. We're going to punish our enemies. How many times did we say that was wrong? How many times did he we say, "What president does that? Punish his enemies, the Republicans?" Treated us like subcitizens for the last eight years. You no longer have a voice at the table.

This was a great change. Because our president used to come in and say, "The parties don't matter anymore. I'm the president of all of America." But Barack Obama didn't do this. Why?

In Washington's Farewell Address, he said the parties would start to victimize the other. One would gain power and victimize the other party. In the end, he said, somebody who was unscrupulous, somebody who was just in it for their own honor and for themselves would then use that party and use that platform and that stage for his own benefit. And he would exact revenge, and that's how he would get into office.

That was George Washington's last warning to us. Does any of it sound familiar?

So who is the most powerful man in America today? He's a dead man.

Saul Alinsky. Rules for Radicals. Quoting: With a tip of the hat to the world's first radical, who may have lost, but at least in the end gained his own kingdom: Lucifer. End quote.

What does Saul Alinsky teach? He teaches the ends justify the means. He teaches that if you have to lie to win, it doesn't matter. He teaches you to isolate your enemies. He teaches you to ridicule your enemies. He teaches you to destroy your enemies. Whatever it takes. Even if it isn't true, if it means you win in the end, it doesn't matter if you lie.

He teaches you to hate. He teaches you to destroy. It's why the book, Rules for Radicals, is dedicated to Lucifer. Because he's the author and father of all lies.

How many people in business do business this way? Just the way business is done. They'll lie, they'll cheat, they'll steal, and they'll feel good about it because they're fine in the end.

How many people in Washington will lie, cheat, and steal? How many of us will do the same? And how many of us will do that because the ends justify the means?

Everybody else is getting theirs; I want mine. It doesn't really belong to them because they took it anyway.

If you're willing just to destroy, to destroy because I want my way. Every single true hero, everybody we learned, everybody in our history, why do you think that they have -- why do you think they have gotten rid of our heroes? Why do you think the progressive movement has done everything they can to take George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, everybody? They're doing it to Martin Luther King. "He was just a communist."

They've destroyed every hero we have. Why? Because they need you to believe that that's the way everyone is.

And, you know what, I'm at a point I don't know anymore. I don't know who my American friends are. I don't know who you are.

I know who my friends are. I know who the vast majority of my audience is. But I don't recognize the people who are shopping next to me anymore. I don't recognize the people who are not engaged in thinking, or more importantly, are using the principles of Rules for Radicals and know better.

How can we come back to a place to where we can be one?

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."
