Hear This Warning: The Future of the Conservative Movement Is in Jeopardy

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's radio monologue from August 29, 2016.

I want to talk to you --- not about the election. I'm going to ask you to take a longer view of what is happening.

I've been doing my homework for a couple of weeks on one particular aspect of what is going on in the country and around the world, and it is something that we have talked about off and on for the last two years. By the time I'm really diving into this, I expect that you and others will say to me the same thing people said when I started talking about Woodrow Wilson.

I said, "You have to understand Woodrow Wilson and the progressive movement."

And people said to me, "Glenn, 'progressive' movement? I mean, 'liberals' --- it's the same thing!"

No, it's not.

"You need to understand the roots of progressivism," I said.

Nobody believed me for a long time, and now progressives are known as progressives, and this audience, at least, knows the roots of progressivism --- and that is wildly important.

But there's something that I think is as important as the caliphate was back then. If you remember, no one knew what a caliphate was, and everyone said that was fantasyland and dismissed it.

I will tell you that I am in the midst of doing research, and I will bring all of it together in the next month, I hope. I feel exactly the way I did about the coming caliphate, which is now a reality. I feel as strongly about this as I did in 2006 and 2007 about the coming market crash, which happened. I feel as strongly about this as I did about telling you about progressivism and the roots of it --- and I need you to hear this warning.

I'm going to introduce you to some people that you are going to say make no difference, but I am telling you, it is the future of the conservative movement if you don't know who these people are. Everyone will say, "They're unrelated. It doesn't matter." And I am warning you now: This is the direction of the country.

I'm going to teach you a lot about the history that I am learning right now and show you why what's happening is simply a repeat of the past.

Where are we right now?

We are in a place --- because of 9/11 and because the system has been corrupt for a very, very long time --- 9/11, we thought we were going to get into a war and we were going to win the war and then come home, right? We thought it would be pretty easy. And we'd win the war and we would come home and we would teach everyone a lesson. But that war now has gone on for 15 years.

We were kind of betrayed and began to ask, "what the hell is going on with the war?" This started back in 2003 and 2004, when we realized we're not fighting this thing to win.

What is happening?

We had already been weakened by political correctness. And then we started to question our parties, we started questioning our government. Then we started questioning our banks. Then we started questioning our justice system and our police officers, to the point where we have nothing left that we believe in.

People are hungry. They are frightened. They are unable to afford life. They don't feel like anybody is listening to them. They don't feel in control. They don't feel like they belong to anything. Most importantly, no one feels like anything makes sense anymore.

Would you agree with those statements so far?

Betrayal and lies in the media.

On top of that, we feel the media has betrayed us and the media is not telling us the truth. Now the media is starting to fractionalize even more. And now the right media is split in half, and both sides are saying, "We're telling you the truth."

Meanwhile, while that war is going on, the people, again, feel like they're being lied to. The people who were their friends. Many think that I have changed and somehow or another I have betrayed the movement. Other people who are in this audience think that others like Matt Drudge or Breitbart have changed and have betrayed the audience.

Basically, everyone in America feels that they have been lied to by someone who they recently trusted, after they lost faith in everything else. They feel like they've been lied to and betrayed by people who were only saying what they said for their own gain and their own power.

We don't believe in our own friends anymore. Even our families are breaking down. The traditional idea of marriage and what a family is, the traditional idea of what a man or woman even is has broken down. Would you agree with that?

Stay alert.

Many people are now in an apathetic state to where they have just checked out and said, "The world doesn't matter, nor do I. And so I'm not paying attention."

Then on top of it, we have forces in the country that are mocking absolutely everything, and there is anger and rage at the system.

We have entered the world of the destruction of the politician. Now the destruction of the parties. The destruction of both parties and the politicians. And now we are entering the destruction of the entire system.

Looking ahead.

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to lay out for you why we're repeating history --- the history leading up to World War I, which in turn, leads to World War II. I ask that you listen and share this with your friends and family.

It's not about politics. It's about the future of America and the world.

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."
