GLENN: I believe that what America needs more of is poetry. I think that

PAT: Only if it's really good, though.

GLENN: Well, no, it's got to be like award winning poetry.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It has to be award winning, social justice, climate poetry.

PAT: That's what it has to be.

GLENN: Yeah. It's not I mean, if it's just any kind of poetry, well, then with

he don't need that. But award winning climate and social justice poetry, there's

nothing like it.

PAT: Preferably given by a, shall we say robust 16 year old girl. That's what I

think

GLENN: Oh, that never happens.

PAT: No.

GLENN: See, you wouldn't happen to have that on tape.

PAT: No, way. Well, wait. Do I?

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Here she comes.

PAT: Here she comes.

GLENN: You go, girl.

PAT: They're egging her on.

STU: She's going to speak truth to power here, I bet.

PAT: Truth to power.

GLENN: Van Jones is in the audience.

(Audio playing)

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California, the southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

applied five years ago when I was 11, when it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place.

PAT: You go, girl.

GLENN: Wait, wait.

VOICE: Broken like the wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning

jazz band. That was the

PAT: Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

GLENN: You have to hear this from the beginning. You have to really listen to

the audience. The audience

PAT: Great.

GLENN: This is in the Bay Area and Van Jones is there and he's about to award,

you know, for the greatest social justice, environmental movement kind of

poetry. Here she is talking about George Bush. She was 11. She was 11 and when

Katrina happened, and listen to the crowd. Play, can you play it again?

PAT: Yeah.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: She's standing and she's kind of, I don't know if I can do this.

PAT: She's kind of warming into it.

GLENN: Do it, do it.

PAT: Go, girl.

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California, the southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

applied five years ago when I was 11, when it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place. And Katrina wrecked Louisiana's ninth ward. The levees broken

like the wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

PAT: (Laughing). I love that! Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band.

STU: That's deep. That is deep.

PAT: Oh.

PAT: She nailed it.

GLENN: Man, she's got it on the ropes now.

PAT: She nailed it.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: The whole situation with that one sentence.

GLENN: Sounded like a drowning jazz band.

STU: Ooh!

PAT: Ooh.

VOICE: That was the standard number one applied five years ago but it is still

right here acceptable today because (inaudible).

(Audio playing)

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, some.

STU: Stop!

PAT: Double helix?

STU: Stop with your double helix! It's so ridiculous.

GLENN: Do we have the, do we have the presentation of the awards from Van Jones?

PAT: I didn't stick around for that.

GLENN: Because she oh, you didn't?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Oh, she won.

PAT: Did she win?

GLENN: She won.

STU: But that was really good, though.

GLENN: But, but, but... he couldn't just pick the top three. Oh, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: Oh, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No. No, we had to find the best four.

PAT: How many were there? Four?

GLENN: Yeah!

PAT: All right!

GLENN: And I want you to know you're all winners. You're all winners.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: That's right!

GLENN: No, you're not, Van. They're losers. They lost. They lost. Yeah, you walk

away you're not all winners. Otherwise you'd all get a prize. And only four of

them did, even though only three of them were supposed to. "We just couldn't, we

just, there's not enough slots because you're all winners. "

PAT: I don't think they were expecting the 16 year old to be as good as she was.

STU: Yeah, a drowning jazz band.

PAT: Drowning jazz band thing.

GLENN: That was really, really good. Now here

PAT: And then when she compared abortions to broken levees, that's when I knew

this, this woman is on it.

STU: And, you know, she's come out there and say talk about a helix, we would

all be like, whatever. But when she brought the double helix?

GLENN: She's bringing the double helix to town.

STU: Wow. She got

PAT: She brought it.

STU: She got George W. Bush there.

PAT: She brought it. She's all up in there.

GLENN: Is this video available on The Blaze?

STU: It is.

GLENN: It is? You have to watch this video.

PAT: It's funny.

GLENN: It's on TheBlaze.com. It is especially when you see her doing it.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: When you see her doing it, it's a wall of sound. That's what it is. It's

just a wall of sound coming at you.

STU: I just love the self importance of it all. It's just this idea where she's

talking about the San Joaquin Valley and she's just in that, like

GLENN: We feed you!

STU: Yeah, when you're 16 years old, you believe what you think is that

important. You're convinced of it. And just the passion is admirable. It's just

passion toward nothing.

PAT: It's, I think to me it's the best poetry since...

GORE: One thin September soon, A floating continent disappears, In midnight sun,

Vapors rise as, Fever settles on an acid sea. Neptune's bones dissolve.

STU: She is better.

GORE: Snow glides from the mountain. Ice fathers floods for a season. A hard

rain comes quickly. Then dirt is parched. Kindling is placed in the forest for

the lightning’s celebration. Unknown creatures take their leave unmourned.

PAT: Kindling in a double helix.

GORE: Passion seeks heroes and friends, the bell of the city on the hill is

rung. The shepherd cries. The hour of choosing has arrived. Here are your tools.

PAT: Polar bears drown like a drowning jazz band in New Orleans when the levees

break and people get abortions.

GLENN: You know what's funny is when we released the Overton Window and we

released the ad do you have the ad by any chance? When we released the ad for

the Overton Window and it was Rudyard Kipling, they all jumped on the wagon on,

"Oh, this guy's crazy poetry. Glenn Beck's writing crazy poetry." No, it was

Rudyard Kipling.

PAT: And they were also saying it was nonsensical.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It was ridiculous, it was pathetic. Because they thought you wrote it.

STU: Right. So that's their automatic response is to criticize.

GLENN: Automatic, it's ridiculous. Did you listen to the Al Gore poem? It's just

worst.

STU: That really is one of the greatest moments of audio of all time, though.

GLENN: What is it about these elitist snobs?

PAT: Neptune downs in the levees of New Orleans.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: SUVs can't be gassed up. They're drowning in Neptune's tears.

STU: (Laughing). So awful. Such an awful failure.

GLENN: Wait just a second. The Times and everybody else just comes out and just

says, "Oh, Glenn Beck is crazy." Now, let's play these poems back to back here.

Go ahead. Here's Rudyard Kipling.

(Audio playing)

VOICE: As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of man. There are only

four things certain since social progress began. That the dog returns to his

vomit and the sow returns to her mire. And the burnt fool's bandaged finger goes

warbling back to the fire. And then after this is accomplished and the brave new

world begins, when all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his

sins, as surely as water will wet us, as surely as fire will burn, the gods of

the copybook headings with terror and slaughter return.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Whew.

GLENN: Okay? And if you know the whole poem, it's unbelievable. Now, here's the

whole poem from Al Gore.

GORE: One thin September soon, A floating continent disappears, In midnight sun,

Vapors rise as fever settles on an acid sea.

GLENN: Neptune's bones dissolve. Now wait. Now, go to the condom chick.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: I'm more entertained by the audience than by her.

PAT: They are. They're good.

GLENN: Yeah! Bring it!

STU: She's better than Gore, though. Even at 16. I think.

VOICE: I am a resident of Stockton, California. The southern sister of

Sacramento, the baby cousin of the Bay Area. That was the standard number one

required five years ago when I was 11. When it was 2005 and George W. Bush was

nine months into the second term of a presidency he shouldn't have even won in

the first place.

PAT: Go!

VOICE: And Katrina wrecked Louisiana's ninth ward. The levees broken like the

wings of a fallen angel. Disaster sounded like a drowning jazz band. That was

the

GLENN: Stop.

STU: That is awesome.

GLENN: With terror and slaughter returned. (Laughing). This time the gods of the

copybook headings, they are only going to dissolve Neptune's bones.



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."
