Glenn Beck: A pivot in America's history

Learn more about the 8/28 Rally...

GLENN: Last week five prayers were answered at one time, and please mark on your calendar 8/28 and also 8/27. I have told you that on Friday, the 27th, we were going to be doing something spectacular. I will tell you this, that we had one thing planned. We had RFK stadium all ready to go, we had this giant fireworks thing that we were going to do and this whole program, and we just couldn't get it right. We just kept — we didn't, we didn't secure RFK because it just, it just wouldn't fit. It just wouldn't fit, it just wouldn't fit.

Something happened last week that is coming together in a miraculous sort of way that I believe we're going to announce on 8/27. We'll give you details. And then hopefully at 8/28 will be unveiled at the Lincoln Memorial as well. It has — I don't want to — I want to make sure this is accurate. I just talked to one of the guys who was with me and he believes this hasn't happened for 234 years. Would you say that this is something that hasn't happened since then?

PAT: Yeah, not that I know of.

GLENN: This is — and if it comes through, and I have handshakes from everyone, if it comes through, it is a pivot point in this country's history. It is something black, white, yellow, brown, it doesn't matter. It is all about character and it is uniting. When I — I had a conversation this weekend. I got a phone call actually while I was on a boat fishing in the river in Driggs, Idaho. I'm out by the Grand Tetons and the phone rings and it's a call from somebody who is — I couldn't not take the call. And when I told this individual what I thought we had put together and wanted to ask him if he wanted to be involved, he said, holy cow; really? It is something you will want to witness. History in the making. A historic event. Do not miss it. Washington D.C. August 28th. I ask for your continued prayers and I — God knows what I'm talking about. Ask Him for — ask Him for His divine providence and the finger of the Lord to appear. So far — and I can't wait to share this with you. So far His — it is only through divine providence. It is really only through divine providence that this is happening so far. I ask you to continue to pray like you've never prayed before because I tell you, I didn't know when we were first — when we first started this, I didn't know what we were — where we were headed. It's one of those things that you're just like, okay, Lord, you want me to walk down this road, I'll walk down this road. Now I see it, and I see how it has come together one piece at a time. And it is, only through divine providence I think this could happen. So keep this in your prayers. Keep this event in your prayers.

I also think that is why you are seeing the left organize beyond your wildest imagination against this event. They are saying now, we've got to have more people there than — you know what? Every American is welcome. And just like Martin Luther King ‑‑ I just keep thinking, I just know this to be true — I believe Martin Luther King, his message is right, and it has been perverted. And one of his messages, one of the things that he strongly believed in was you put these two images side by side, you put the racists next to the beaten down man and America will see and they will choose the right side. Let me tell you this. I believe that to be true. Just like Martin Luther King, just like you, just like George Washington, just like really I think every average American, you believe in the decency of the American people. If people want to come and protest this event, they are going to be so unbelievably exposed. You can come and stand with us. That's why I ask you, don't bring signs. Bring your children, please. Don't bring signs. Bring your children. They can stand shoulder to shoulder with us. Once they see what we are doing, once they see what this event is, they are going to be so exposed as nothing but haters. August 28th, Washington, D.C. Please join us as we turn the page in American history.

Science did it again. It only took 270 million years, but this week, scientists finally solved the mystery that has kept the world up at night. We finally know where octopuses come from: outer space. That explains why they look like the aliens in just about every alien movie ever made.

It turns out octopuses were aliens that evolved on another planet. Scientists haven't determined which one yet, but they've definitely narrowed it down to one of the planets in one of the galaxies. Hundreds of millions of years ago (give or take a hundred), these evolved octopus aliens arrived on Earth in the form of cryopreserved eggs. Now, this part is just speculation, but it's possible their alien planet was on the verge of destruction, so Mom and Dad Octopus self-sacrificially placed Junior in one of these cryopreserved eggs and blasted him off the planet to save their kind.

This alien-octopus research, co-authored by a group of 33 scientists, was published in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal. I'm sure you keep that on your nightstand like I do.

Anyway, these scientists say octopuses evolved very rapidly over 270 million years. Which sounds slow, but in evolutionary terms, 270 million years is like light speed. And the only explanation for their breakneck evolution is that they're aliens. The report says, “The genome of the Octopus shows a staggering level of complexity with 33,000 protein-coding genes — more than is present in Homo sapiens."

Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

They mention that the octopus' large brain, sophisticated nervous system, camera-like eyes, flexible bodies and ability to change color and shape all point to its alien nature. Octopuses developed those capabilities rather suddenly in evolution, whereas we're still trying to figure out the TV remote.

These biological enhancements are so far ahead of regular evolution that the octopuses must have either time-traveled from the future, or “more realistically" according to scientists, crash-landed on earth in those cryopreserved egg thingies. The report says the eggs arrived here in “icy bolides." I had to look up what a “bolide" is, and turns out it's a fancy word for a meteor.

So, to recap: a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, an alien race of octopuses packed their sperm-bank samples in some meteors and shot them toward Earth. Lucky for us, they landed in the water. Otherwise, we might be octopus pets.

President Trump's approval rating is rising, and Democrats — hilariously — can't seem to figure out what's going on. A few months ago Democrats enjoyed a sixteen point lead over Republicans, but now — according to CNN's recent national survey — that lead is down to just THREE points. National data from Reuters shows it as being even worse.

The Democratic advantage moving towards the halfway mark into 2018 shows that Republicans are only ONE point behind. The president's public approval rating is rising, and Democrats are nervously looking at each other like… “umm guys, what are we doing wrong here?"

I'm going to give Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a little hint. We know that the Left has enjoyed a “special relationship" with the media, but they might want to have a sit down with their propaganda machine. The mainstream media is completely out of control, and Americans are sick of it. We're DONE with the media.

RELATED: The mainstream media wants you to believe Trump is waging war on immigrants — here's the truth

Look what has been going on just this week. The president called MS-13 gang members animals, but that's not the story the media jumped on. They thought it was more clickable to say that Trump was calling all immigrants animals instead. In the Middle East, the media rushed to vilify Israel instead of Hamas. They chose to defend a terror organization rather than one of our oldest allies.

Think about that. The media is so anti-Trump that they've chosen a violent street gang AND A GLOBAL TERROR ORGANIZATION as their torch-bearing heroes. Come on, Democrats. Are you seriously baffled why the American people are turning their backs on you?

Still not enough evidence? Here's the New York Times just yesterday. Charles Blow wrote a piece called "A Blue Wave of Moral Restoration" where he tried to make the case that the president and Republicans were the enemy, but — fear not — Democrat morality was here to save the day.

Here are some of these cases Blow tries to make for why Trump is unfit to be President:

No person who treats women the way Trump does and brags on tape about sexually assaulting them should be president.

Ok, fine. You can make that argument if you want to, but why weren't you making this same argument for Bill Clinton? Never mind, I actually know the reason. Because you were too busy trying to bury the Juanita Broaddrick story.

Let's move on:

No person who has demonstrated himself to be a pathological liar should be president.

Do the words, “You can keep your doctor" mean anything to the New York Times or Charles Blow? I might have saved the best for last:

No person enveloped by a cloud of corruption should be president.

I can only think of three words for a response to this: Hillary Frigging Clinton.

Try displaying a little consistency.

If the media really wants Donald Trump gone and the Democrats to take over, they might want to try displaying a little consistency. But hey, maybe that's just too much to ask.

How about starting with not glorifying terrorist organizations and murderous street gangs. Could we at least begin there?

If not… good luck in the midterms.

In the weeks following President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the mainstream media was quick to criticize the president's pro-Israel stance and make dire predictions of violent backlash in the Middle East. Fast forward to this week's opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem and the simultaneous Palestinian “protests" in Gaza.

Predictably, the mainstream media chastised Israel for what they called “state-sanctioned terrorism" when the IDF stepped in to protect their country from so-called peaceful Palestinian protesters. Hamas leaders later admitted that at least 50 of the 62 Palestinians killed in the clashes were Hamas terrorists.

“In our post-modern media age, there is no truth and nobody even seems to be looking for it …. This is shamefully clear in the media especially this week with their coverage of the conflict between the border of Israel and the Gaza strip," said Glenn on today's show. He added, “The main media narrative this week is about how the IDF is just killing innocent protesters, while Hamas officials have confirmed on TV that 50 of the 62 people killed were working for Hamas."

The mainstream media views the Palestinians as the oppressed people who just want to share the land and peacefully coexist with the people of Israel. “They can't seem to comprehend that in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, only one side is actively trying to destroy the other," surmised Glenn.

Watch the video above to hear Glenn debunk the “peaceful Palestinian protest" fallacy.

Here are a few headlines regarding the protests in Israel: 'Global protests grow after Israeli killing of Palestinian demonstrators,' the Guardian. 'Israel kills dozens at Gaza Border,' the New York Times. 'Palestinians mourn dead in Gaza as protests continue,' CNN. 'Over 50 Palestinians in massive protest are killed by Israeli military, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war,' ABC News. 'Gaza begins to bury its dead after deadliest day in years,' BBC.

In each, the spoken or unspoken subject of the sentence and villain of the story is Israel. Innocent Palestinians murdered by the cruel Israelis. This is the narrative that the mainstream media has promulgated. Few have mentioned that the majority of the “protestors" that died were members of Hamas, the militant (and highly anti-Semetic) Sunni-Islamist organization that has been labeled a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department.

A senior Hamas official told reporters that 50 of the 59 people killed in Monday's protests were members of Hamas, and the remainder were “from the people." So…they were all Hamas.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative.

As usual, mention of such membership has been left out of the mainstream media's anti-Israel, pro-Islam narrative. Maybe they think of Palestinians as underdogs and they love a good scrap. Well, they aren't underdogs. But their outburst have been glorified for so long that it's near impossible to disagree with that narrative.
