Glenn Beck: Firm Reliance

GLENN: The founders at the end of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson didn't write, "And we have faith, and we'll mutually pledge to each other our..." didn't say that. With firm reliance on divine providence we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, our sacred honor.

Here's what I want you to do. In all things that we talk about, prove me wrong. Prove me wrong. I'd love to be wrong. Prove these things to be true or false in your own life. Do not take my word for it. Don't take anybody's word for it. When you read a story in the New York Times, the Huffington Post, The Blaze, the Glenn Beck newsletter, do not read it and take it as fact. We try our best, but there are some sources that don't try their best. We do. But it makes no difference if you say, well, Glenn Beck told me that's true. What? A preacher can't give you faith. Only you can. The press and special interests are not going to give you faith, they're not going to give you hope, and they're not going to give you charity. I won't, either. But the media will tell you and politicians will imply that Americans are stupid, incapable, gullible, need a shepherd. They can't do it themselves. They're like sheep. "We need more Washington, we need more programs." They'll tell you that the biggest day of charity is April 15th. That's the biggest lie of them all. I won't tell you those lies. I'll just tell you what I believe and what I have found to be true and how I arrived at that conclusion. You may not arrive at the same conclusion. I challenge you to find your own conclusion. But I also challenge you to do this: I want you to start dismissing the press and those sources that you have found to be so untrue. Don't argue with them anymore. Don't let them bother you anymore. Remind me if it starts to bother me. Just, you know what they are? They're Biff Tannen: What are you looking at, butthead? They're so wrong, I expect them at some point, our foes, to come out and say, "Why don't you make like a tree and get out of here." Really? That's who you're dealing with, Biff Tanner, or Tannen. What's his name? Tannen? Tannen or Tanner? Biff Tannen. We can argue about the lies, but we will never get to the truth by arguing over lies. We won't defeat the back room, back‑stabbing power politics of the past. You can't defeat them. You have to dismiss them. You? You I'm going to dismiss now. That's what we have to say. Just dismissing. No harm, no foul, just dismiss, you're done here. Who are you to say? I just have the fire of the truth on my side. That's really pretty much all it is. The more we argue about our rights being lost or stolen, "They are not." "Yes, they are." "No, they're not." The more time we lose. The door is being closed. We have to start arguing about our responsibilities. And really not even arguing. Just deciding what our responsibilities are. Our first responsibility is this: Vote. Vote. Get involved and vote. Find something that you believe in. Find the truth. Put your faith in somebody. They may violate it. But who knows? You might find a higher truth with that person and it gave you a little more faith. Get involved. It's our responsibility. It is our responsibility to give until it hurts, to inform ourselves before we try to inform anybody else. It's history. It doesn't belong to those at Yale or Harvard or Columbia. It doesn't belong to those at school‑lastic. It's your history. It is our responsibility to raise our kids are values and principles. And to teach them about what our founders said were nature's laws and nature's god. Pick up your God‑given responsibilities. Stop talking about your rights. Start picking up your responsibilities and your rights will be restored automatically. That's a pretty hefty claim. How does that work? Well, if we're taking care of each other, if we're actually tithing 10%, all of us, and I don't care if it's at your church. Give it to idiot but, you know, give it to PETA. Give it to something you believe in. If we are all giving until it hurts ‑‑ we're the most charitable nation on the planet. If we are starting to give our money to things that help people who are homeless, help people who are unemployed, help our neighbors. Don't give it to some faceless organization that's going to ship it some place else. We got problems here. And we have the ability to take care of each other. If you don't do it, well, the government will have to. There's no ifs, ands, and buts about it. The one thing that they have, the one thing that they have, and I happen to believe in the dark forces. Let's call is the dark Sith, the one thing the dark Sith or Darth Vader has is a little bit of truth. Satan always uses a little bit of truth. No matter what it is. He uses something that is true. And then it's perverted. So what is, what is, politically speaking what does the opposition have that is true? People are suffering. People will go hungry. People don't have jobs. Those are true. And so they follow that truth with, "And the government has to fix it." No! That's the falsehood. Mixed with truth. And so what they do immediately is say, "Well, you don't care about people." Yes, yes, yes, I do. I give 10% of my income. And if we are all giving 10% of your income, as a minimum, and you have to have faith that you'll be able to make it. I know that's hard. Pay it first. Pay it first. And have faith. You will get more truth by doing it. And you will have greater faith. If we all give, if we all help each other, the government will say, what are you doing? We don't need this program; we don't want your program. We will have the moral authority to be able to say small government! People are suffering, until our neighbors join arm in arm and take care of our neighbors who are suffering. Faith, hope, equals truth and charity. It is the answer.

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."
