People Fleeing California Wildfires Captured This Terrifying Footage

The death count from California wildfires has risen to 42 lives lost, but that number will likely increase by a lot once the fires are contained enough for emergency responders to go through the buildings.

Two people who escaped the inferno captured video footage of the fires near their home.

GLENN: Mike and his roommate knew they only had seconds to make a last-ditch escape from their home in Yuba County, California. The flying embers and the smoke swarmed everywhere.

As the fire singed their hair and burned their eyes, they ran into the SUV, praying to God that they would make it out in time.

VOICE: Oh, my God, dude. You're going to have to cut to the left. Open the gate.

GLENN: Here he is running out, into --

VOICE: We're going to die, dude. We got to get out of here.

GLENN: Into the flames. Trying to open the gate, so they could get their SUV through. Flames all around them. Embers in their hair.

VOICE: I can't breathe, dude.

VOICE: You're all right. You got this.

VOICE: We shouldn't be driving into this gorge.

VOICE: Oh, my God. I can't breathe.

VOICE: This meadow, dude. Come on, Expedition, baby. You can do it, girl!

GLENN: We're not dead yet.

VOICE: This is our only option.

GLENN: Mike and his roommate survived, but others have not been so lucky.

The northern California wildfires have claimed at least 42 people so far, but that is expected to go way up as we begin to search and send search-and-rescue teams out to comb through the gutted homes looking for bodies.

Five thousand seven hundred homes and businesses have been reduced to ashes. To put this into perspective, the wildfires have consumed an area larger than New York City.

This has been the deadliest wildfire epidemic in Californian history. And yet, out of the smoke and the debris comes hope.

Loren Jade Smith -- Lauren lost the most precious thing in the world to the Santa Rosa wildfires. He lost his Oakland A's collection. He had baseball cards dating back to the year 2000. He had 17 jerseys, ten hats, two baseballs, one of them signed by the entire team.

Loren wrote to the baseball team about his plight. He said, to the Oakland A's, I love watching your A's games. I want to be an A's player. I want to play at Mark West Little League in Santa Rosa. I played baseball in my backyard all day, loving the A's and making my own game.

In my backyard, we won six World Series in a row. But my house burned down in the Santa Rosa fire. And my saddest thing was that my A's collection is gone.

Well, the A's got that note, and the president of the A's moved so much by Loren's letter, he promised to completely outfit the 9-year-old and his family in new athletics gear. People from all over the country are now sending Loren their Oakland A's memorabilia in an effort to help him restore his collection.

It is the simple things in life that change our experience. Never underestimate the generosity of humanity in small and seemingly insignificant ways. Ask and ye shall receive.

As the wild fires in northern California become contained, remember that the fire in a man's heart to do good can never be extinguished.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars."

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.

How Biden will COMPLETE Obama's radical transformation of America

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal the moment in history we went from "America the Free" to "America the Oligarchy." He runs through a terrifying checklist of how much damage has been done since former President Barack Obama promised to "fundamentally transform the United States of America," and argues the Biden administration is really just Obama 2.0 on steroids, and progressive ideals are being executed at a hyper-accelerated pace.

While Joe Biden signed record numbers of executive actions, the World Economic Forum gathered to further push the Great Reset, and the ideas are nearly identical. There's a very specific reason why the first keynote speaker last week at the World Economic Forum wasn't an expert on free market capitalism, but the president of ... CHINA.

We are hurtling toward an oligarchy where Big Government merges with Big Corporations. They'll have all the power, and according to our betters behind the Great Reset, "You'll own nothing and you'll be happy."

Democrats are using the GameStop, Reddit saga to CRUSH the underdog

Glenn explains how — despite what Democrats will tell the public — they care NOTHING for the little guy...all they want is control, and the GameStop & Reddit saga is showing us how much control they want. Because right now they're doing everything they can to CRUSH the underdog. Glenn says that when the government gets heavily involved in the stock market & when you can only invest in a company (like GameStop) from the stock exchange in MEXICO, it means we no longer have a free market here in America anymore...
