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.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.

A big question Glenn Beck has always had about “The Amazing Do-Over” is: How do you get the most powerful and wealthy nation that has ever existed to accept, “You will own nothing … and be happy”? A foundational principle of this country from its very inception has been land ownership. We worked hard, were fiscally responsible, and stayed away from high debt, but the progressive era began to erode all of that.

The Clinton Global Initiative recently gathered the ruling class to tell the plebes how to run their finances and called anyone who dared challenge their ideas “climate change deniers.” Glenn argues we are dangerously far down the “Road to Serfdom” and exposes the progressive playbook to keep us in line. It’s a 600-year-old medieval model that’s been the plan all along.

We’re already feeling economic pain, and yet they’re playing “Game of Thrones” with our lives. Turning us into serfs is their ultimate goal. How do they finish the complete restructuring of the American financial system and our way of life?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn connects it all on the chalkboard and details the solution to fighting back against the ruling elites.

These days, it seems like everything is about politics, and comedy has been one of the biggest targets. Many comedians are walking on eggshells, but stand-up comedian and "Saturday Night Live" alum Jim Breuer isn't one of them.

Breuer joined Glenn on the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to talk about why he’d rather be funny than fearful and what inspired his hilarious comedy special, “Somebody Had to Say It," which has garnered almost 1.5 million views as of this writing.

Breuer made it clear that he does not consider himself to be political. "I'm not. I'm 100% not [political]," he told Glenn, before explaining how people started calling him political when he dared to ask questions about a certain shot that we're not allowed to mention, let alone question.

"When did medicine become political?" Breuer asked.

"What kind of price have you paid for being called political?" Glenn asked Breuer.

"To be dead honest with you, once COVID really kicked in, and ... once you realize we're not going to be here, that we're on borrowed time, and I do have God in my life ... you come to terms with reality on a deeper level. And when COVID kicked in, I said, 'You know what? All bets are off.' I already knew I wasn't in control. But now, not only am I not in control from the natural order of life, but now the puppet masters ... are in control," Breuer answered.

"It made me realize I don't have time to worry about what people think of me. I know where I'm at in life. I know where I'm at spiritually. I know where I'm at with my family," he added.

"That's tremendous power," Glenn said. "But it spooks the hell out of people."

"But it shouldn't!" Breuer exclaimed. "I'm excited that other people get this ... but they're stuck. We ain't got time for stuck. To me, this is the time of, 'You gotta rise.' For years and years and years, you allow fear to control your life. Fear of dying. Fear I might get sick ... everything's based out of fear. It's time for the fearless."

Breuer also revealed his secret for dealing with tough times, and he’s seen his share. But he also said he's seen miracles, including the incredible (and hilariously told) story of how he found faith, how God saved his marriage, and why one family friend was convinced his wife belonged to a cult.

COO of vegan food giant Beyond Meat arrested for CHOMPING man's nose

A top executive at Beyond Meat, a plant-based food company, was arrested for reportedly biting a man’s nose in a parking garage near Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas, over the weekend.

Chief Operating Officer Doug Ramsey faces charges of terroristic threatening and third-degree battery after allegedly chomping down on a man's face and "ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose" during an altercation following the University of Arkansas football team’s victory over Missouri State.

According to reports, Ramsey was attempting to leave the parking garage in his Ford Bronco when a Subaru “inched his way” in front of him and made contact with his front passenger’s side tire. Ramsey allegedly “punched through the back windshield of the Subaru” before attacking the Subaru driver with both fists and teeth.

Ramsey “pulled [the Subaru driver] in close and started punching his body,” then “bit the owner’s nose, ripping the flesh on the tip of the nose,” according to reports.

The irony of a vegan food executive trying to make a meal of a human being's face was not missed by those jokesters on Twitter.

BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere is a vegetarian and also just happens to be the executive producer of the Glenn Beck radio program. Glenn joined "Stu Does America" to do a taste test of the plant-based "McPlant" burger, a Beyond Meat product, to see how it fares against the competition. In case you missed it, this was without a doubt the most ridiculous (but entertaining) plant-based food review so far.
