'God Was There': 10 Percent of Republican Congressmen Could Have Been Dead

GOP congressmen practicing for their annual charity baseball game against Democrats didn't just dodge a bullet, they dodged dozens. Had the gunman achieved his objective, we could have seen one of the greatest massacres of it's kind in American history. According to at least one congressman, divine intervention played a role.

Glenn shared a message he'd received from Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) during his radio program Wednesday.

"Barry Loudermilk said in a text a few minutes ago that he was there and he was shot at several times. And he said God was there," Glenn said.

He went on to spell out the aftermath that was avoided thanks to the heroic actions of the two Capitol police officers who took down the gunman.

"I just want you to recognize the divine protection we had today," Glenn said. "You had 30 Republicans on the field. Thirty. You would have lost 10 percent of those in the Senate and Congress that were Republican. Ten percent of the Republicans could have been dead today. That would have changed our country as much perhaps as September 11th did. God only knows what would have happened to our country, had this guy been successful. He wasn't. God was there."

Earlier in the segment, Glenn played audio of President Donald Trump's response to the shooting.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Here's the president. He's stepping to the microphone now.

PAT: Good.

VOICE: -- prayers for those who have been wounded. A --

GLENN: We have -- we have him walking to the microphone now.

TRUMP: As you all know, shortly after 7:00 a.m. this morning, a gunman opened fire on members of Congress and their staffs as they were practicing for tomorrow's annual charity baseball game. Authorities are continuing to investigate the crime. And the assailant has now died from his injuries.

STU: Oh, wow.

GLENN: Hmm.

TRUMP: The FBI is leading the investigation and will continue to provide updates as new information becomes available.

Congressman Steve Scalise, a member of House leadership, was shot and badly wounded and is now in stable condition at the hospital, along with two very courageous Capitol police officers. At least two others were also wounded.

Many lives would have been lost, if not for the heroic actions of the two Capitol police officers who took down the gunman, despite sustaining gunshot wounds, during a very, very brutal assault.

Melania and I are grateful for their heroism and praying for the swift recovery of all victims. Congressman Scalise is a friend and a very good friend. He's a patriot. And he's a fighter. He will recover from this assault. And, Steve, I want you to know that you have the prayers, not only of the entire city behind you, but of an entire nation and, frankly, the entire world. America is praying for you. And America is praying for all of the victims of this terrible shooting.

I spoke with Steve's wife, Jennifer, and I pledged to her our full and absolute support, anything she needs. We're with her and with the entire Scalise family.

I have also spoken with Chief Matthew Verderosa -- he's doing a fantastic job -- of the Capitol Police, to express our sympathies for his wounded officers and to express my admiration for their courage. Our brave Capitol police performed a challenging job with incredible skill, and their sacrifice makes democracy possible.

We also commend the brave first responders from Alexandra Police Fire and Rescue, who rushed to the scene. Everyone on that field is a public servant. Our courageous police, our congressional aides, who work so tirelessly behind the scenes with enormous devotion, and our dedicated members of Congress who represent our people, we may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's Capitol is here because, above all, they love our country.

We can all agree that we are blessed to be Americans, that our children deserve to be to grow up in a nation of safety and peace, and that we are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.

Please take a moment today to cherish those you love, and always remember those who serve and keep us safe. God bless them all. God bless you. And God bless America. Thank you.

GLENN: So he stuck almost entirely to the script. And --

STU: Did what he had to do.

GLENN: Did what he had to do.

JEFFY: Did great.

GLENN: Didn't take on the media. Didn't do anything.

STU: No. Not time for that. And he recognized that.

GLENN: Right. And I hope we stay this course. I would -- I would love to see somebody from the left on CNN have some sort of recognition of what they said about Tea Party people and how these things historically almost always come from lunatics or the radical left, in America. The shootings that we have had have always been lunatics, Palestinian, or radical left. Those are the history of our assassination attempts in America and the unfortunate assassinations that have gone through.

That doesn't mean, like with Martin Luther King, that a -- a white racist doesn't pop in either. That happens as well.

But generally, those people are all unstable.

JEFFY: They're all lunatics. That's exactly right.

GLENN: They're all unstable. They're all unstable. I mean, it's not rational to go in and -- and shoot someone. But if you have a collective mindset, sometimes that happens. And it seems more logical, because the individual is not as important as the collective.

We're a republic. And the Democrats I know do not want this kind of stuff to go on. And the Republicans that I know do not want this stuff to go on. We are all Americans. We're all decent, good, many God-fearing people. And today would be a good day to reflect on a couple of things.

I mean, you know, Barry Loudermilk said in a text a few minutes ago that he was there and he was shot at several times. And he said God was there.

I just want you to recognize the divine protection we had today. You had 30 Republicans on the field. Thirty. You would have lost 10 percent of those in the Senate and Congress that were Republican. Ten percent of the Republicans could have been dead today.

That would have changed our country as much perhaps as September 11th did. God only knows what would have happened to our country, had this guy been successful. He wasn't. God was there.

And for those who were on the field, I know they have to be thinking, "What am I doing? What am I doing? Is this really worth dying for?" Yeah, I think it is. But are you doing it with integrity? Are you really -- what you're doing...

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
