Harvey Is a Long Way From Over – Here’s What Happens Next

Even though it’s been downgraded from hurricane status, Tropical Storm Harvey continues to douse Texas and the southern coast as torrential rain adds to the flood waters.

On radio Wednesday, Glenn thanked the audience for their incredible support and asked them to continue to help as flood victims try to recover. In the last 48 hours, people have given over $500,000 to help Texas; unfortunately, the storm is far from over.

“It’s going to have a chain reaction that you’re going to probably feel in your community,” he said of the huge storm that has flooded tens of thousands of homes. “I’m humbled by what you have already done.”

Teams working to rescue people and keep them fed and safe need supplies, including satellite phones. Because the satellite phones sent to the disaster site aren’t waterproof, communication has been going down.

“We need more boats. … We also need your help on communication devices,” Glenn said. “This is a long way from being over.”

UPDATE: Total funds are now over $1,000,000 in donations.

GLENN: So there is -- there's some good news. Yesterday, just in the last 24 hours, you have stepped to the plate in an unbelievable way. Over $500,000 was raised just on yesterday's program. And we -- we can't thank you enough for that.

This is going to be something that goes for a very, very, very long time. And I think it is going to -- it's going to have a chain reaction. That you're going to probably feel in your community.

And I am -- I'm humbled by what you have already done and how many people are just giving like $5. Yesterday, I got an email. And people -- and we're going to talk to Jason who is down yesterday in Houston.

He said he could not believe the number of people who were driving their own personal cars and bringing their boats from all over the country. And he said, they were just leaving their car. And as they were leaving, they were like, "Buy, car." They just knew they were never going to see their car again. And Jason almost got stuck a couple of times because they're driving around. And they're trying to find a place to launch the boats. But the water is coming in so fast, that the cars are -- you know, when they drive down a street, if they can't launch it there, by the time they were turning around to try to get out the same way, they were blocked. I mean, they almost got trapped yesterday.

Just, you know, they didn't have a boat.

JEFFY: Wow.

GLENN: They were following the guys who had the boat. At one point, they got separated. And they were like, we are -- we're going to be asking them to rescue us.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: We need more boats. And we also need your help on communication devices. The satellite phones that we dispatched yesterday, unfortunately not waterproof. And so we're losing a lot of satellite phones, the communication devices are going down.

We really need your support to believe just to communicate. This is a long way from being over.

You have to remember the waters were receding in -- with Katrina, really quickly.

And you were able to go -- by this time, they were going door-to-door, and they were spray painting X's and numbers on doors of how many people were dead in those homes. We're not even there yet.

And this is a long, long way from being over. And we really need your support at mercuryone.org.

We are trying to be as transparent as we possibly can be so you know exactly where the money is. I'll give you an update on what was happening yesterday. But we have -- I think it's Project Barbecue yesterday, finally was able to get to the -- to the location, which is the convention center.

PAT: George R. Brown Convention Center.

GLENN: The convention center, they're the ones that are going to be supplying 25,000 meals a day. Last night, they finally were able to fire things up. I think they served only 2500 last night. They'll be up to ten or 15,000 by today. And by tomorrow, they'll be at 25,000 meals.

STU: And in a real moment of graciousness, we have offered, when they're done, they can come back and stage here. Any barbecue facility actually that wants to come and stage themselves here, is welcome at any time.

GLENN: But there's no one to rescue here.

JEFFY: There's plenty of room in the parking lot to --

STU: Thank you, Jeffy. Lots of room.

So just think of this. This is all donations. Think of the amount of beef you need and pork. Thank God we're in Texas.

Think of the amount of food. For 25,000 people, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, at that one location. If you can help us, five bucks makes a world of difference. Go to mercuryone.org.

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
