Glenn picks apart a call

GLENN: Go ahead and play this, Dan, and I want to show you, I want to show you how predictable liberals really are in the people who are falling in line behind these programs like universal healthcare, how their thinking is so unbelievably consistently inconsistent.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: I don't have policies, I have opinions. But it's America. You can disagree all you want. Okay.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop. Let's refer to the war, which is -- did she say a trillion dollars there? Which is a trillion dollars. Stu, do you have the actual number? Which is a trillion dollars, and it never had to happen at all. Got it? First of all, 70% of American people when we went to war were absolutely for it. The congress also for it, and you don't have to take my word for it. You can look at all of the people like Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and look at their actual quotes when Bill Clinton was in office and what they said then. He had to be stopped. Then you can also look after they had been briefed about all of the things that they said that he did have the weapons of mass destruction, et cetera, et cetera. The facts are there. I know nobody wants to look at them, but the facts are actually there. But she's not actually calling for the war. This is step number one in a liberal Progressive argument. Start with the war. That way you get that premise out there and you already start in on the war but then change the subject right away until you start to lose. Then go back to the war. Start with the war. That's what she did. Now she said, so let's just start with that. Go ahead.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. So let's start with the war. Okay. The war has nothing to do with healthcare unless she's trying to tie the -- this is important -- unless she's trying to tie the trillions of dollars in her words that have been spent on a useless war that we didn't have to fight in the first place, okay, that we cannot afford. Remember, we cannot afford this war. Got it? So maybe she's tying it to the war we couldn't afford and when people go on disability, then money is taken from them. I don't even understand that but I would imagine the only time money's ever taken from me is when I'm held up every April 15th. That's the only time my money is taken from me, but maybe that's just me. I doubt that's her point.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. So now we are beyond just healthcare. If you can't get healthcare, you are going to go on disability because your situation is going to get worse. So in other words, let's say I'm a soccer player but a poorly paid soccer player and I've got a foot infection but I can't afford healthcare. My foot infection is going to eventually end up as toe rot. I'm going to lose my foot and now I'm on disability. I think that's the argument but again these arguments are very hard to understand or follow because they're always bringing in, like, six different things and they always start with... the war.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop, stop. She doesn't have to read something that she's for. So if you're for it, you don't have to read about it. That is yet another interesting comment that you hear all the time in certain ways from liberal Progressives. They don't have to do any research. They don't want to hear anything about global warming. They don't have to read it. Their mind is made up. They don't have to know. They don't need anymore information. There is nothing new. There's nothing to see here, people. Move on. She doesn't have to read the "New York Times," and she also won't allow me to tell her about the New York Times.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop. Stop, I love this. "Why! Why is Sally Muckenfutch without a face? Why does her dad not have health insurance? Why? Why? Why? Why is Bill Hutchensonsonberg, he lost his job as a shoe manufacturer. Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?" We're talking about one person that's not acceptable to a liberal Progressive. You should let liberal Progressives know that that's not what we do. But the New York Times article was not talking about one individual. It was one case that showed that there are a lot of people out there that gamble with their health. They're young and so they think, I don't need healthcare; I'm not going to spend the money. Well, if you're gambling with your own health, guess what. You lose. The house isn't going to pay you for gambling and losing. No.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Okay, stop, here's the next one. First of all let's just totally inflate everything. Let's make this much worse than it is. Now there are trillions of people -- she said it twice, trillions. I asked her again for clarification later. Trillions of people that are in need of healthcare. Wow, that's a lot. I thought it was 49 million people but that number as I'll explain later not even accurate. But now it's trillions of people. And also, I haven't walked in her shoes. I don't know. She was one of those people. I wasn't. I must not be one of those people because I'm rich. Sucks that I happened to be very, very poor eight years ago. Really sucks that I couldn't even afford the braces for my children's teeth ten years ago. Wow, it sucks. It's almost like I've lived in those shoes. It's almost like I've walked in those shoes.

Here's the thing. You get into an argument with a liberal Progressive. They're going to start with the war. They're going to tell you about how it's wrong and how we shouldn't have fought it and if we can afford that, we can afford this program. Yet they will tell you we can't afford the war. You need to hold them to, we can't afford the war, we can't afford anything else. You can't afford the war, period. It's never worked with my wife to say, honey, we can't afford -- we can't afford that new car. That's why we should get a new sports car. It doesn't work that way. If we can't afford this, we certainly can't afford something that's more expensive. Also, they won't let you use individual examples. Fine. Then don't use individual examples because you can use actual stats and facts, but don't let them use individual examples. Also, you've never walked a mile in their shoes. I'll bet you most of the people have not walked a mile in those shoes, that are making that argument. I bet you're closer to walking in those shoes, if you haven't walked in those shoes yourself, than they ever have. The difference is you never asked the government for help. You just did it because you believe in you. They believe in the government. I'm past believing in the government thing. I kind of got -- roll the dice on me and you.

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."
