GLENN: Jon Huntsman, Sr. is a guy who is teaching me how to be charitable. That was our deal, Jon, when we first met. Teach me how to be charitable. He is a guy who grew up dirt poor, had one shirt when he was growing up, lived in a house that they had to split with another family and they put cardboard walls up in between the two families. Dirt, dirt poor. And now is — he's the guy who invented the egg carton. I didn't — egg cartons one of those things you are like, we didn't always have egg cartons? And he is the styrofoam cup and plastic fork and plate and spoon and I mean, he's an amazing guy, and he is going to die broke because he's giving his billions away, and he has been kind enough to let us use the Huntsman Cancer Institute which has one of the nicest restaurants in the city in it because as a survivor of cancer, he knew he didn't want to eat the Jell O and the really bad food at 3:00 in the morning, he wanted to have a good meal. So he brought some of the best chefs up into this cancer institute so he could cook for them, and he's got a restaurant up there. So we have — he's been gracious enough to let us have that for a fundraiser tonight for 8/28. And then he calls me yesterday. He's the guy I talked to yesterday that I told you about. He called me yesterday and said, Glenn, I want to, I want to give you a check for $50,000. I'm not going to be able to make it to the fundraiser, and I just wanted to give you $50,000 for 8/28. I am — I want you to know I asked if the audience would match that $50,000.

Today at, I will match both his $50,000 and the audience's $50,000 so we can turn his $50,000 into $200,000, and the proceeds are going to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, an amazing group. But let me introduce you to Jon Huntsman, the most charitable man I know.

HUNTSMAN: Well, Glenn, you know, every time I'm with you, Glenn, I feel a little bit like a different person because you're so gracious. And the one thing, Glenn, that, you know, I listen to your show, I watch you on Fox and more importantly, Glenn, you and I have — you know, we were fishing last week together, we had our families together. I watched you personally and I watched your children and I watched your beautiful wife. I know you very, very well. And Glenn Beck, you know, you can talk all you want about people like me, we do the very best we can, but you are a charitable man, Glenn. I look at what you've done for cancer, I look at the money you've raised, and not many people know this but out of your back pocket, you gave an enormous amount of money to cancer, and it lifted the hearts and souls of cancer patients, Glenn, and so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your charity and your goodness, Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Well, this is the guy who actually said last week that I was a natural sportsman. Right?

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Stu, natural —

PAT: Stu and I don't believe that, Jon.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, no.

PAT: That can't be true.

HUNTSMAN: I'm here — let me tell you this.

PAT: Set the record straight.

HUNTSMAN: First of all, let me talk just a second about the hoary marmot. If you don't know, the hoary marmot, it ran out from this bush and we had just been chasing this moose down the river.

GLENN: Yeah.

HUNTSMAN: And all of a sudden this wild type of creature came —

GLENN: It's like a dog.

HUNTSMAN: Yeah, but it's a light brown.

GLENN: Squirrel thing.

HUNTSMAN: Huge animal.

GLENN: It's a spooky animal.

HUNTSMAN: Spooky animal. And so Glenn and I both said, there goes a varmint! And, you know, of course it's a marmot. And the thing about it, Glenn, I found out since then was what we saw was a hoary marmot.

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: But we never saw the yellow bellied marmot.

GLENN: There's a yellow bellied hoary marmot?


GLENN: Or just a hoary

HUNTSMAN: Remember those old western movies, that guy would walk into the saloon and they would say, you yellow bellied varmint?

GLENN: Right.

HUNTSMAN: It really was a yellow bellied marmot and we didn't see one but we saw his cousin.

GLENN: So are the yellow belly are they afraid of people?

HUNTSMAN: I don't know whether they are. I think they all got shot in the early West in the saloon.

GLENN: I'm not sure.

HUNTSMAN: But anyway, we had a great time and there is such a thing as a hoary marmot.

GLENN: And I'm fishing and Jon says to me for the first time in my life, a man says to me, you are a natural sportsman. And I said, yes, I am. Yes, I am.

HUNTSMAN: Not only that, Glenn, but our guide looked at you and here was — here's Glenn Beck, folks. I've got to paint this picture because we're on this beautiful river in Idaho, moose running along the side, hoary marmots on the other side, coyotes running up and down.

GLENN: It's nice, isn't it, Pat?

HUNTSMAN: And there's Glenn with one hand. I mean, to all you fly fisherman who use two hands, here's Glenn with one hand hitting the dry fly. It's not a wet. It's a dry, which is very difficult to maneuver in a wind, we had a light wind. And there he was right along the grass, right along the shore. There he was cast after cast after cast.

GLENN: Natural.

HUNTSMAN: Natural.

PAT: Have you ever seen him throw a ball, Jon? Have you ever seen him throw a baseball, football, basketball?

GLENN: Hey, I have to tell you this story. This is my favorite story, me not being a sportsman is my 5 year old son Raphe, we go out to play catch with the ball. My 5 year old son, he's — we're, actually we're not playing catch. I'm throwing — I'm pitching it so he can hit it with a baseball bat. I pitch like three times. He just puts the bat down on the ground and says, Dad, you are really not good at this.

HUNTSMAN: No, no, but Glenn's turned over an entire new life, an entire new leaf, Glenn.

GLENN: Yes, yes. So anyway, well, Jon, thank you so much for your donation and thank you —

HUNTSMAN: Glenn, here's a check for $50,000, Glenn.

PAT: Oh, wow.

HUNTSMAN: I am so honored. Let me just say one word. You know, honoring, Restoring Honor in America and this Special Operations Warriors Fund, I had the privilege to serve in the United States Navy as a gunnery officer. We took the first troops into Southeast Asia. In 1961 I took 1100 Marines on a ship and we dropped them off and, you know, some of them didn't return. This was in the early days of the war and as it cranked up and cranked up, those of us who served in that theater and served in the Pacific. You know, we have a great affection for these young men and women who are the sons and daughters of these special operations forces in the army, Navy, Marines and Air Force, and what a great, wonderful thing you are doing, Glenn. 8/28 and the restoring of honor to America. No one else in America has done this but you, Glenn Beck, and I salute you and we really commend you for it.

GLENN: I have to tell you, these guys, who's the — what was the sergeant's name, Eddie that was on this week with us? Here's a guy, these warriors are all exactly the same. Here's a guy who had, what was it, Pat, a rocket went off?

PAT: Rocket propelled grenade hit him in both his arms.

GLENN: Blew both hands off. So here's a guy that has no hands left and we're talking to him and he has the hooks for hands, and he's like, "You know, I just want to go back."

PAT: He wanted to go back.

GLENN: "I just want to go back." I mean, he went back. It didn't end his service. He taught hand to hand combat after that with no hands.

HUNTSMAN: Just incredible.

PAT: Amazing.

GLENN: These guys are amazing. Hunts they are amazing. And two weeks ago, Glenn, I had the privilege, and Pat, to be at the United States naval academy and there one of my sons was just inducted, sworn in as a new midshipman going through Plebe Summer and we just found out this week that another grandson has been admitted for next year to the U.S. Naval Academy, but these kids want to be SEALs. They have been training their life so they can go out and, you know, it's such an honor to be a grandfather to these young warriors, the young men and women who want to grow up, serve their country and be SEALs and to do what you are honoring these special operations people for doing, Glenn.

GLENN: Jon Huntsman, what a pleasure.

HUNTSMAN: One of my dearest friends in all my life, Glenn Beck. Thanks, dear friend.

GLENN: That means a lot, thank you.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
