GLENN: Oh, yes, welcome to NPR, where your tax dollars are spent and pent spent and spent. We spent a lot of money bringing you shows that no one ever watches like Upstairs, Downstairs, like Attic and Basement and Outside and Inside. Tonight we have a very special broadcast, Shakespearian theater. Patrick, what are we expecting in tonight's performance?

PAT: Well, Glennard, we have a marvelous performance by Shakespearian Thespian extraordinaire.

GLENN: Now, many people have seen his performances when he first came on the stage but he hasn't been seen by very many as of the last few years.

PAT: No, he is a rare gem indeed, Glennard, a rare gem indeed.

GLENN: What is the performance that we'll be watching?

PAT: Tonight's performance is Special Comment by Keith Olbermann.

OLBERMANN: The actual place that is the real equivalent right now of the paranoid dream contained in the phrase Ground Zero mosque has been up and running since before there was a World Trade Center and for the nine years since there has been a World Trade Center, running without controversy, without incident, without terrorism, without protest. Because this is America, damn it, and in America when somebody comes for your neighbor or his Bible or his

GLENN: Stop, stop, yes.

PAT: Just a second.

GLENN: Did you see the "It's America, damn it"?

PAT: Damn it! Oh, it was

GLENN: It was expertly done.

PAT: I felt it through the screen, Glennard, through the screen.

OLBERMANN: Or his atheist manifesto or his Koran. You and I do what our fathers did and our grandmothers did and our founders did. You and I speak up.

GLENN: That's right, damn it. We speak up, damn it.

PAT: Although, I don't know that I've ever heard Shakespearian Thespian Keith Olbermann ever explain that someone's Bible has been taken when it has, in fact, been taken; or, "Under God" been removed from the "Pledge of Allegiance" in nine western states. I don't remember him ever saying "This is America, damn it!"

GLENN: It's very interesting to me. Can we play this again because I think this is such a great clip. Listen to him.

OLBERMANN: The actual place that is the real life equivalent right now of the paranoid dream contained in the phrase Ground Zero mosque has been up and running since before there was a World Trade Center and for the nine years since there has been a World Trade Center, running, without controversy, without incident, without terrorism, without protest. Because this is America, damn it.

GLENN: Damn it!

OLBERMANN: And in America when somebody comes for your neighbor or his Bible or his Torah or his atheist manifesto or his Koran, you and I do what our fathers did and our grandmothers did and our founders did.

GLENN: Damn it!

OLBERMANN: You and I speak up.

GLENN: Damn it! Damn it! Oh, yeah! Let me ask you something, Keithy Weithy. Do you think you are going to speak up when people come for the Bible? Do you think you will? Do you think you'll be the oh, I feel sorry for even asking this. You won't be on the air. Because nobody's watching you. "This is America, damn it!" This comes from a guy who has wanted me off the air forever. I celebrate this guy's on the air. I support Keith Olbermann and his idiotic positions.

PAT: This is the only time anybody ever hears him is when we play him on the show.

GLENN: We're helping him.

PAT: We're helping him.

GLENN: We're helping him.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Look, we've thought about doing no, seriously we are helping him. I thought about doing a little, kind of a cool little program where we would ask a listener a day to watch the program, so we knew somebody was watching for Keith.

PAT: And it would double his ratings, if not triple.

GLENN: He doesn't watch it. Who else?

PAT: No, his mom. His mom.

GLENN: His mom watches?

PAT: Mrs.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

PAT: Mrs. Olbermann. She's a saint.

GLENN: She is a saint. Sometimes our mothers are saints, and she's a saint. She watches every night?

PAT: I no.

GLENN: No?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Okay, all right.

PAT: But when she gets a chance.

GLENN: I'm not really, I'm not really sure if she watches.

PAT: No, I don't I don't know. I was just assuming.

STU: But since he's gone through the trouble of joining Insider Extreme to watch every episode of Beck University, I mean, the least we could do is supply one of our ten million listeners to watch one, it's the least.

GLENN: You know what? You make a very good point. This is, after all, America, damn it!

PAT: Somebody should watch.

GLENN: All right. All right. We should redistribute the audience. He should just level the audience playing field and just force people to watch him so we could all be equal. See, we're all created equal, Keith, but we don't all have equal results. And you know that. You know that. Because your results in prime time, very, very unequal to mine at 5:00 p.m. In fact, your entire network, very unequal to mine at 5:00 p.m. It's kind of a, kind of a tough place to be.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But it's hey, God just keeps kicking you in the head until you get it. So you can either start to get it, or list just keep getting kicked in the head

PAT: Get kicked in.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You know.

GLENN: 'Cause and I wouldn't want to say that God is kicking your head in. Currently I am. So

STU: Imagine the ratings God would have. They would be really big.

GLENN: They would be really big. They would be really big. Those are big shoes. I've got my head kicked in by God before. Big shoes, big shoes. He packs quite a wallop.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
