GLENN: Look, you know what's amazing, what's amazing to me is and this is the point, America. The media is going to do what the media does, and I am I got to this place over the holiday when I was when I was on vacation last week, when I was headed out to the boat and somebody said, umm, Glenn, the ambassador to Pakistan would like you to come out against the burning of the Koran.

PAT: Had that same problem over the weekend, didn't you, Stu, with the ambassador of Botswana.

STU: I believe he's the am bass tore to Belize was yeah, all of them.

GLENN: I just turned around and I said, the what? Huh?

STU: That was bizarre.

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: It is totally bizarre, totally bizarre.

PAT: Have you ever seen, I can't remember I was thinking of that over the weekend. I don't think I've ever seen an ambassador from another nation call on a television or radio host to denounce anything.

GLENN: Never, never.

PAT: We really need Glenn Beck to

GLENN: You know what that says. You know what that says. A couple of things. One, that's how much trouble America is in on leadership, okay?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That's the real message you should get here. But the other is, the rest of the world is looking at America, and they are seeing lack of leadership. So who has the ear of the American people? Who has any influence with the American people? Well, the Pakistanis apparently believe I do.

Here's the best news. When I heard that about the Pakistani thing, first of all, I did, I wrote

STU: Yeah, he should subscribe to the e mail newsletter because you

GLENN: Yeah, I wrote something, what, two days before, the day before.

PAT: On vacation?

STU: Did you get paid for that? Did you get paid for that? I want that donated to Pakistani charities.

GLENN: (Laughing). So anyway, what I realized was, over vacation because I had time to get away from everything. It's almost sad to watch the once great lion of the republic, the press, just implode. And he just don't they're flailing. They don't know what to do. They just don't know what to do. They don't know how to explain it, they don't know what's going on. Time magazine wrote something gosh, I saw it on Saturday going up to Alaska. What was it, in oh, it was on 8/28. It said Glenn Beck, he gathers all these people here, but he didn't even know what to do with them. He left them all confused and going home. No, no. The only ones that were confused were the reporters. You are so out of step and out of touch with the American people that you don't it's sad. So the message that we need to be focusing on on the media is, they are so far behind in your rearview mirror, it doesn't matter. You have already won. You've already won. Now it's just making sure that you're consistently doing the things that you say that are important to do. I believe faith, hope and charity. I believe these are the things that are going to turn and transform the country. And it doesn't, it doesn't matter. Just don't you be ashamed of what you believe. Don't do it anymore. Don't be a mouse, don't be like, well, I really don't want no. Say what you mean and mean what you say. Say it with love in your heart. But remember Jesus turned over a few tables himself. You don't go there's no reason to burn a Koran. Those who want to burn books will destroy themselves. And those who want to chop people's heads off because they're homosexuals and the Koran says that that's well, they will destroy themselves as well. As long as you do one thing: Know what you believe and take a stand.

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."
