'Plane in the Ceiling' - Glenn Recounts Miraculous 9/11 Survival Story

The week of September 11th, Glenn will air a special TV program about 9/11. Friday on radio, he spoke about one of the survivors who will be featured on the special.

"His wife was living over in India with him, you know, he grew up in India. She was born in the United States and then moved to India. They got married, and they decided, 'Let's go over to America.' So they come February 2001. Neither one of them have jobs. Within six months, they're at the top of the world --- literally. She's working in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. He's working in the North Tower of the World Trade Center," Glenn said.

At 8:00 o'clock that morning, he wrote an email to a friend saying how he'd done great things in America, but felt like he needed to refocus on God and stop simply pursuing money and stuff. He believed something had to happen to get him back on track and put God first. An hour later, the plane hit.

"He was working on the 72nd floor, where jet fuel is coming down on them. He sees the wing of the plane in the ceiling. He's going down the stairs that's on fire. He stops at the 52nd floor, and he's just trying to get a hold of his wife to say, 'Where are you, honey? Get out of your tower. Get out of your tower.'" Glenn said.

Glenn then described how a firefighter and FBI agent kept pushing him to leave the building, which ultimately saved his life.

"He finally gets a hold of his wife at 3:00 o'clock in the afternoon because no cell phones are working or anything else," Glenn said. "So he thinks she's dead . . . he's convinced she's dead."

Call it divine intervention or whatever you will, but his wife had missed her train and called in sick. She never went to the towers.

"Here's this guy who has now gone on with his life, and he's doing exceptional things with his life because he's here in America. And you know what he's doing? He's going back to India, based here in America, trying to save the children off the streets of India that are sold in sex slavery," Glenn said.

When Glenn first met him, it was a remarkable moment.

"He looked at me and he shook his head and he said, 'It is a true honor to meet you.' And he was so sincere," Glenn recalled.

Glenn realized something from talking to him.

"He is unlike most Americans. He recognizes the exceptional nature of what we have, not who we are. What we have," Glenn said. "And he is on the front lines of standing up, saying 'Don't you guys get it? Look at what you have. What you have is exceptional."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
