This One Thing Could Convince Author Brad Thor to Abandon #NeverTrump

Ted Cruz's defeat on Tuesday may have pulled the plug for some in the #NeverTrump movement, but not for Brad Thor. The New York Times best-selling author joined The Glenn Beck Program on Wednesday to provide some clarification on the meaning of the word "never."

"I was reading a story in the Huffington Post today, where they said the #NeverTrump people have to decide what #NeverTrump means. So we thought you would be the guy to answer that," Glenn said.

This question was clearly right up Thor's ally.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

"Far be it from me as an author to lay out the meaning of words, but perhaps the hashtag should be #NeverEverTrump," Thor said. "I mean, it can't be more clear than that. Never --- you know, this is coming from the left. I thought ‘no' meant ‘no' to the left. Does ‘never' not mean 'never'"?

Glenn pointed out many people are arguing a vote against Trump is a vote for Hillary.

"Right --- and no to Hitler was yes to Stalin. So I got that, I got that," Thor replied. "I think you can be anti-Hillary and anti-Trump. You can be pro-liberty, pro-Constitution."

With that said, the thriller-writer admitted there actually was one way Trump could earn his vote --- but don't hold your breath --- it was a big ask.

"There's only one way that I will move out of the #NeverTrump camp," Thor said. "That only one way is that if there's the greatest check put on Donald Trump's power possible --- and that would be to put Ted Cruz into Scalia's seat at the Supreme Court."

Co-host Stu Burguiere didn't see that happening.

"He's going to put in someone that he can make --- he can have them rule and make the Supreme Court great again. And whatever that means is, it means agreeing with Donald Trump," Stu said.

As anti-Trump as Thor is, he made an impassioned plea to all those listening to pray for Trump, his family and those protecting them.

"I want to right now ask everyone who is listening to pray for the men and women of the Secret Service who are charged with protecting Donald Trump and his family. I think we will see unprecedented assassination attempts on Donald Trump," Thor said.

"I think the left will so vilify and demonize him with the media --- I'm betting that they are going to be attempts on his life. I pray to God that it doesn't happen, but the way this country is right now, I don't know how it doesn't happen."

Glenn has been observing the Secret Service for most of the Obama administration's term, so this fear wasn't surprising.

"I hope not. But quite honestly, I don't trust the Secret Service," Glenn said. "They're so sloppy. There's got to be Secret Service agents that are like, ‘Guys, we are a mess right now. We've got to fix this before something happens.'"

If there is any good news in this insane election cycle, it's that there has been a separation of who's really in it for the right reasons.

"We've now seen who really stands with liberty, who is a constitutionalist and who is in this just for their own," Thor said. "I'm sure that like me, you could have held onto a lot more customers, a lot more listeners. I could have held onto a lot more readers if I'd just played it right down the middle or thrown my arms around Trump."

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."
