Glenn Finds Common Ground With Young Liberals in L.A.

Still on the road in sunny California, Glenn had the opportunity yesterday afternoon to speak with a few hundred young liberals. While most would not have normally crossed the street to meet him, they were very attentive, civil --- and there may have been a breakthrough.

"We're in this unbelievable screening room. It looked like one of the nicest theaters I've ever been in, but it was a screening room, and I walk in the back door onto the little stage area, looking at this. I'm, like, wow are you guys living in a bubble? This is sweet. And I sit down, and they start asking questions," Glenn said.

One line of questioning was very telling.

"There is disenfranchisement on both sides. And it was really interesting because several of the questions revolved around this. One of them clearly stated this, and the other ones were kind of hinting around this: What happens if I can't pull the lever for Hillary Clinton? Does that mean I'm responsible for electing Donald Trump?

The irony wasn't lost on Glenn.

"I just, I mean, I wanted to laugh. I'm, like, boy, I've heard this conversation before, except it's on the other side," Glenn said.

One thing struck Glenn during his time with the group: There is a unique opportunity to have a real, issues-based conversation.

"We talked about gun control, we talked about abortion, we talked about everything, and we did it peacefully, respectfully, quietly. It was a fascinating," Glenn said. "They were all sitting on the edge of their seats, and they were really, truly trying to listen and understand."

Glenn's common sense perspective seemed to resonate and, perhaps, break down some barriers --- or at the very least, allow people to consider things from a different angle.

On the issue of gun control, Glenn explained why the only way to change the stance on guns is through a constitutional amendment. When one audience member suggested laws to curtail and control gun usage, Glenn detailed why that would never sit well with conservatives or solve what's perceived to be the problem.

"You have to have a constitutional amendment. If you can get a constitutional amendment fairly, squarely, then maybe you would have a chance of solving it. But you have to do it the right way because it's in [the Constitution]. I warn you, like prohibition, you might be able to get it through, but it will reverse itself quickly," Glenn said.

On the issue of abortion, Glenn explained why those on the side of life cannot compromise, comparing a life in the womb to a life in a Jewish concentration camp.

"We can't compromise because those of us who believe in life believe that it is a human life. So it's the weakest among us, and we have to stand," Glenn said.

While we may disagree on specific issues, if we stop trying to control each others' lives, those issues, for the most part, become irrelevant.

"When it comes to bathrooms and gay marriage, we can argue back and forth, but the argument means nothing if you having gay marriage doesn't affect in any way my marriage or my faith or my church," Glenn said. "If I don't have to perform gay marriage, if I don't have to bake a wedding cake, if my faith says you can't get involved in that, you can't force me. Just like I can't force you not to get into marriage."

Glenn explained one aspect of marriage which he said had "scales falling off of their eyes." He asked if anyone knew why we even have marriage licenses --- nobody raised their hand.

"We have a marriage license because Progressives wanted to make sure blacks and whites never mixed races. We have a blood test to keep the undesirables from breeding. That's all nonsense. That's all eugenics. So why are we arguing over marriage licenses?" Glenn asked.

Many seemed to really understand what Glenn was trying to say: Stop arguing nonsense and stick to your principles.

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."
