Couple Married for 75 Years Have an Amazing Story – but Their Names Are the Best Part

Meet Harvey and Irma.

Nope, not the terrifying hurricanes that are flooding homes and threatening lives — Harvey and Irma Schluter, a couple living in Washington state who marked their 75th wedding anniversary this year. Harvey is 104, and Irma will be 93 in November, so they’ve lived through their fair share of American history: the Great Depression, the moon landing and President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

Now, their names are both headline-making storms; Tropical Storm Harvey left Houston and other parts of Texas under water, while Hurricane Irma is poised to hit Florida.

“I don’t know how they’ve done that, to have a Harvey and Irma,” Irma Schluter said in an interview with the New York Times. “I don’t know how that worked out.”

Glenn talked about the couple’s incredible story on radio, admiring their efforts to help foster children in need of a home. The Schluters estimate that over the years, they have cared for around 120 children, many of whom had physical or mental disabilities.

“Really, truly wonderful healers, Harvey and Irma,” Glenn said.

GLENN: You know, it's interesting how Pat missed the point on -- you know, he's saying we got to come up with kinder names. Irma sounds like a woman who is a little upset. And we should come up with kinder names. I believe -- I mean, if we're not talking to Mr. Pat 1940, he would understand the real problem is, how dare us assign gender to these hurricanes.

STU: Hmm. That is a great point.

GLENN: How do we know Harvey identifies as a male storm and Irma identifies as a female storm?

STU: We don't know. And how do we know if they're male or female at all?

GLENN: It's the oppressors once again at work. How dare us. We should listen to each hurricane. Let them say their gender. Let them decide their name.

STU: And this is the problem with unleashing Pat, maybe he should be leashed.

GLENN: Maybe he should.

STU: Maybe he should be leashed on his new show, starting Monday, by the way, on TheBlaze. Pat Gray Unleashed. Very excited for that.

GLENN: Harvey and Irma had been married for over 75 years. Not the hurricanes. It's Harvey and Irma Schluter. They've been married for 75 years. He just turned 104. And she will be 93 in November.

They both remember vividly the -- the major events of the last century. They remember the first time they ever saw an airplane. They remember the Great Depression. They remember obviously the wars, Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. Irma just said recently she remembers that it was a -- a cool and cloudy day, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

Now, as they celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary, we've named two storms after them. And they said, you know, what are the odds? And as you get to know Harvey and Irma, they are the exact opposite of these two storms. They got married in 1942. And she wanted to -- she wanted to wait to get married. And he said, "No, no, no. Let's get married right now." He worked as a barber. They found their way to Spokane, Washington. What the interesting thing about these guys, they have taken in over 100 foster kids. They were foster parents.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: And most of them mentally or physically disabled. Really, truly wonderful healers, Harvey and Irma.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
