Al Gore: Hit the streets!

GLENN: Now let's go to Al Gore, who would like you to take to the streets because our government has failed us entirely.

PAT: Yeah. Well, we heard that last week from him that the government has failed us entirely? You remember that?

GORE: I want to call you to action, but I have to begin by telling you what you know. In all candor the United States government in its entirety, largely because of the opposition in the United States Senate to taking action on clean energy and a solution to the climate crisis, has failed us. America is capable of great things. We always have been and we still are. We have a history of great leadership from our earliest days. The United States Senate has failed to meet the challenge of the climate crisis.

PAT: And, of course, the government has failed in its entirety. So on his blog post he linked the Australian wire service report that tens of thousands of protestors have taken to the streets across Australia to protest on climate change and then he said, across the world, when politicians fail to take action to solve the climate crisis, people are taking action. He added, after excerpting the news reports, it is my hope we see activism like this here in the United States.

GLENN: I wish I could do that.

PAT: So he's calling for people to, tens of thousands of people, I guess, to take to the streets of the United States and start protesting because their government has failed in its entirety.

GLENN: This goes back to Van Jones and ACORN and the unions and everybody else. They are encouraging people to get out into the streets and hold up their signs and be really angry and march and sit down and don't move and all of these things. They are encouraging them, while at the same time tea parties are gathering. And they're demonizing that, except the left has a tendency of getting violent and we've already seen it. That's why it is important that you, as an American citizen, are different. You must stand out. You must be different. This is why I say do not bring any signs to 8/28. Don't bring them. And if you see people with signs, ask them to put them down. And if they won't, I believe they're infiltrators. I'm not expecting infiltrators, quite honestly. I mean, there's enough, believe me. Believe me. There's enough that will

GLENN: Now, with Al Gore, he wants to save the planet and the government has fundamentally failed you. But that's good stuff.

PAT: Yeah, because of the climate crisis, the government has failed you.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Climate crisis?

PAT: Yeah, there's a climate crisis.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: On the other hand we just heard, what, 45 minutes ago from Barack Obama that there's no Social Security crisis.

GLENN: I think they have a hard time defining crisis.

PAT: I think they do. Crisis means a little something to them.

GLENN: No financial, no Social Security crisis.

PAT: Right. But there is a climate crisis.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Because the climate in 100 years will be out of control?

PAT: Or 1,000, whatever.

GLENN: Between 100 and 1,000 years, the climate will be out of control. But within five to ten, Social Security will be out of control.

PAT: But that's not a crisis.

GLENN: That's not a crisis?

PAT: No.

GLENN: I don't understand the word the way they are using it. -- I don't think they know what it means. May I just give you this? Do you know what the fiscal year 2009 agency financial report is called for the Department of Energy? Do you know what they called the report in 2009?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Department of Energy. This is actually from a book that we're releasing here soon. I'm just doing the final edits on it today. The Department of Energy, their annual report called working to save the planet.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's the Department of Energy. Is that a little strange? That's their new goal?

PAT: Because the climate is in crisis, Glenn. The planet, because of our SUVs, the planet is in crisis.

GLENN: Do you drive an SUV?

PAT: Of course, but that's because I have to get from Point A to Point B to save the planet.

GLENN: Yeah, but if I can't get to Point A to point B in order to

PAT: You can walk because you're not you're not fighting to save the planet. You simply are focused on destroying the planet.

GLENN: Okay. But you just take the SUV then and you don't burn up like a bunch of jet fuel to go places, do you?

PAT: Well, I plant trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: You what?

PAT: I plant trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: You plant trees?

PAT: Trees.

GLENN: Okay, that's good.

PAT: That offsets the planet killing carbon dioxide that's coming out of my SUVs.

GLENN: That offsets?

PAT: That offsets the SUVs.

GLENN: Why don't you just stop using the plane?

PAT: Because I must, as I said if you'd listen to me, I must get from Point A to Point B to save the planet.

GLENN: How about using just technology? For instance, I mean, there's like video conferencing.

PAT: Do you know how much CO2 computers use?

GLENN: There's holographic images now that you can put in. It's like you're in the room.

PAT: Again you're expending energy.

GLENN: I understand that, but you're expending much less energy than you would on the Gulfstream.

PAT: That's why I plant the trees in Indonesia.

GLENN: Instead of planting the trees, because I think you have to use computers to be able to transfer funds to Indonesia.

PAT: Well, that's what I'm saying. I must, I must save the planet. And see, in all of my efforts to save the planet, I have to expend some energy. That's why I can't, I can't abide these hypocrites like yourself who drives around in his SUV just to get his fat but from Point A to Point B.

GLENN: But see, that doesn't make me a hypocrite because I don't believe in global warming.

PAT: But you are telling me I shouldn't be using my SUV.

GLENN: Well, because you are telling me I shouldn't use my SUV.

PAT: That's because you're not saving the planet. The Earth has a fever, Glenn.

GLENN: Does it seem like this might be a circular argument?

PAT: It does.

GLENN: Just a little bit?

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."
