Glenn Beck: Grace


“Grace” by Richard Paul Evans

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I have always told you that I believe in my sponsors, I believe in the I'm never going to ask you to ever go out and spend a dollar of your hard earned money if I don't believe in something. I promise you that. I know how hard you work for your money. I know how hard I work for my money and I also know that if I ever ask you to do something and then you do and you're like, well, that sucks, you know, it really, it hurts our relationship. The one thing that I tell you that I have really been feeling strongly about lately is and I know it's hard to find it right now on this program because I'm giving you so much information that it's like, "Oh, boy, think I'm going to go in the garage and hang myself." But the one thing that I've really been feeling strongly for the last three months is hope. Hope, hope, hope, hope, hope, hope. And I've told you recently that we have to reconnect with values, we have to reconnect with something of value. I'm going to tell you where you can spend $19.95 today and you will get $50 worth of value and have just a great reconnection with hope and the values that we have been missing. I reconnected with my childhood. I reconnected. When I was a kid, we used to have this we had this house and in the backyard there was kind of this overgrown area and my father helped me build a clubhouse. And I was kind of a loser kid. So it was really only me in the clubhouse. Wasn't really fun, but I remember the time going into the clubhouse and it was like my own secret world. I hadn't thought about that and what my childhood was like for a long, long time. I hadn't thought of that clubhouse in probably 20 years until I picked up the new book for Richard Paul Evans called Grace. In case you don't know the name, Richard Paul Evans is the author of The Christmas Box. Another one of my favorite books, The Gift, came out last year. Just, he is a writer of character, quality and hope and he's with me now. Richard, how are you?

EVANS: Good, glad to be here.

GLENN: This went on sale just the other day and you are already getting people who are coming up to you in the street. Because it doesn't take you long. I think it took me two nights to read. But you are already having people coming up in the streets that have been affected by this.

EVANS: Right. Immediately. Because some of the underlying themes are bringing memories, like you said, out of people, especially people who have been abused in the past.

GLENN: And I have to tell you because, you know, America I mean, if you've been abused, you are going to love this book. Please read this. I picked it up and I think I read the jacket and it was my first kiss, my first love. She was little match girl, though I could see in the future the flame of a candle. I'm like, oh, wow, this is going to be nice, blah, blah, blah. Then I read on and it's like, I can't do this, too, please, no, I can't.

EVANS: It's hopeful.

GLENN: And it's hopeful but it doesn't get in until later on. It doesn't really get into that. It just an innocent first love, first kiss, true to each other, helping each other out. It's great.

EVANS: They're kids. Someone said this reminds me of to kill a mockingbird, what I was doing really heavy social issues. The bottom line is you are reading about these kids and how they are dealing with the world around them. The story's about a young runaway girl and young boy who finds her and hides her in his clubhouse and tries to protect her.

GLENN: Right. And he finds her, he is working at the. He was a guy who decided he's going to capitalize on everything if he will right over here. He will capitalize on all of the advertising from everybody if it's McBurger Queen. I thought that was great. But anyway, he was working there as this kid and he goes out to dump some stuff out of the dumpster and he hears a noise and he spots Grace.

EVANS: Looking for food.

GLENN: Dumpster diving.

EVANS: Right.

GLENN: And he doesn't say anything to embarrass her. If I remember right, he knew. I know it says later that he didn't, but did he really know at the time?

EVANS: Well, he saw her drop the hamburger she was holding but he didn't want to embarrass her. And so later she writes in her diary, either he was very kind or very dumb.

GLENN: Yeah. It's great because it has her diary, little pieces of her diary all the way through between the chapters and so you are seeing what she's not telling him and it is, it's a story of chivalry. It's just great.

EVANS: Thanks.

GLENN: Now, you what I love about do you know Jon Huntsman?

EVANS: Yes.

GLENN: Senior?

EVANS: Yes.

GLENN: One of the greatest guys I know.

EVANS: He is an amazing man. I actually sent him a book.

GLENN: He is not going to read it. I sent him my book. Anyway, he is one of the most amazing men because here is a guy who has made a fortune and he's giving it all away. Tell the story about the first time when you first got the offer on The Christmas Box because you just self published it. That was something that you really had just written for your family, right?

EVANS: Right, as a Christmas present. In fact, I went out my publisher, first publisher was Kinko's. So I went out, made 20 copies and handed them out and they just spread. People started sharing them with each other and pretty soon hundreds of people had read those 20 copies and that's when I decided to try to publish the book. So I sent it out to publishers and they all rejected the story. "A book like this will never sell" and so I self published it because I beg to differ, I think it will. That was 8 million copies ago, just kept spreading and spreading. But we got that first check because at first once it hit the New York Times, then the publishers changed their minds. They all wanted the book. It sold in an auction for $4.25 million. So when I got the check, the first thing I did is like, I made a copy and sent it to my friend, faxed it to him just to bug him. And then Keri and I, who is actually in the studio, Keri and I talked about it, well, what would this do to our family. We went and talked to some financial consultants and they told us these horrible stories about our kids would become drug addicts. I was like, what? Keri said, let's just give the money back, which says a lot about this woman. And I said, hold on a second.

GLENN: Wait, wait, can we buy some stuff first?

EVANS: I've been without money, I don't like that. So we decided we would give back and so it started this process that's become a magnificent obsession. We started building shelters for abused children and we've housed more than 20,000 abused children since we started.

GLENN: That's amazing.

EVANS: Isn't that cool?

GLENN: That's amazing. And you kept the money, too.

EVANS: And she has a nice home. She won't say anything.

GLENN: You know, we talk, because I how much time do we have here, Dan? We have one minute? I sent you the I sent you a copy of my book and had you read it and you've called back and said it was great, blah, blah, blah. We were talking about it and I said, okay, here's the problem. The publisher wants me to change the ending and you said do you remember what you said to me? You said, why? And I said, because they don't understand the redemption part. They don't understand the God part of it. Do you remember?

EVANS: I do.

GLENN: And you said, went through the same thing. They don't in New York they just don't get what the rest of the country just, you know, gets naturally. When we come back, I want to ask you a little bit about the difference between what we see in the media, what we generally read and the courage that it takes to stand up and say, "No, no, no, I know that's what everybody says you are supposed to believe but this is the truth."

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
