EXCLUSIVE: Glenn Speaks With Orlando Survivor Tony Sanchez

Tony Sanchez, who survived the horrific terrorist attack in Orlando, graciously spoke with Glenn from his hospital bed, just prior to going into surgery Thursday morning. Tony remains in critical but stable condition after being shot four times in the back and in his left arm, which was completely shattered.

During the emotional 20-minute conversation, Tony spoke about the harrowing experience, the doctors' belief in a miracle that spared his internal organs and spinal cord, and the plan God has for him.

Watch a portion of the sobering interview below.

"What is the prognosis on you? When you were shot in your lower back -- that is so scary -- are you mobile? Will you be able to be mobile again?" Glenn asked.

"So far, they say yes," Tony said. "As far as my arm, they still are trying to reconstruct it because it was --- it was messed up pretty bad. They opened my stomach to see if any organs or my spinal cord was hit by any other bullets. And they consider it a miracle because none of the bullets touched any other organs or the spinal cord."

Tony went on to describe how he and his best friend Luis --- who did not survive --- were about to leave when the sound of bullets erupted.

"So my instinct --- and most everybody's instinct --- was just to fall to the ground and cover themselves," Tony said.

When he saw the shooter approaching about 20 minutes later, shooting people in the head, Tony buried his head under a couch. He described seeing bodies to his left and right.

"Oh, dear God," Glenn said. "I'm --- I'm --- man, I'm sorry to --- this must be horrible for you to talk about."

The gunman stopped shooting and Tony believed he was in the clear, but he wasn't. He described the awful moments that followed:

He stopped shooting, so I was like, "It's over. Hey, I'm actually pretty much going to make it." I'm hoping it's over and the cops got to him or whatever. But then, like five minutes after, shots were getting fired again. And that's when I don't know where, I felt him shoot my back.

It was very bad because the bullets went through my back, and they came out and hit my arm also. So my arm was destroyed, and all my blood was just coming out of my arm. So it was like a pool of blood from everybody because there was too many people around me.

When police entered and began clearing the space, Tony dragged himself toward the door with his one good arm. That's when someone picked him up and carried him about a block away. He passed out and woke up in the hospital.

"What do you take from all of this personally, Tony? Have you, I mean, I know you're so early in on this, but what is the main thing that keeps going through your head right now?" Glenn asked.

"I just got to keep on fighting. Can't give up. And I thank everybody that's been supporting me. And I just got to keep on pushing forward because if I'm still alive, it's because, you know, God has a plan for me. That's the only thing I could think of," Tony said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Tony to cover medical expenses, hospital bills, food, counseling and anything the family may need.

"If you want to help with his medical bills, we're all brothers and sisters. Let's take that off their plate," Glenn said.

A GoFundMe campaign has also been established to support all shooting victims and their families. The campaign has already raised nearly $5 million, dwarfing GoFundMe's previous campaign record of just over $2 million.

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."
