Glenn's take on National Treasure II

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. I'm glad you're here. My name is Glenn Beck and I want to talk to you about a couple of things. I want to start with something real positive. I went to see National Treasure over the weekend, the Nicholas Cage movie. I don't know if you've seen it already. I personally, I think I liked it better than the first one. I don't know. I'd have to see the first one. I really liked the first one. I mean, you know, it's an American Indiana Jones. If you are looking for anything deeper than that, you are going to the wrong movie. But that's what it is, an American adventure in Indiana Jones. And I saw the second one and I liked it as much as the first. My daughter said on the way out, she said, I think that's better than the first one, Dad, and it's been a long time since I've seen the first one but it's pretty close. I liked it. But here's what I liked about it. I liked the fact that, A, there wasn't any offensive -- there's nothing offensive in it. I didn't feel uncomfortable sitting next to my family. I didn't have to walk out and go, no, that's not exactly what was going on. I didn't have to explain who the bad guys are and who the good guys are and that the black had -- sometimes are white hats. Sometimes the bad guys are good guys. Sometimes the good guys are bad guys. I didn't have to do that. It really felt like movies the way they used to be made where a parent didn't have to explain or to back out and correct the bullcrap that had just been pumped into our child's head. Am I alone feeling that? I know I'm not.


 


 So that's one of the things I liked about it. It was just good clean fun. I liked the fact that the Nicholas Cage character, who's a good, decent guy. Again I didn't have to explain to my son who didn't see it yet because he's 3, but I could watch that movie and I won't have to explain to my son, well, no, a good guy doesn't behave that way. That guy was honorable every step of the way. Even in kidnapping the President, it was honorable, and I know that sounds strange but he didn't actually kidnap the President. And when the President -- and this is my favorite part, and I wanted to cheer and I wanted to ask you, am I alone in this feeling. If you saw national treasure, when he kidnapped the President and then went down beneath Mount Vernon into the secret tunnels and they were there and Nicholas Cage said I want to do this to -- sir, I want to do this to restore my family name and you, sir, can restore this national treasure to the United States, bring something back that hadn't been seen forever. It wasn't "And we can all get rich." It was, "And we can do good." The President said to him -- and this is my favorite part. The President said to him, why would you think I would do that? And the Nicholas Cage character said, because whether you were born to be the President, sir, or you just found yourself the President, I believe that the President is an honorable man and when push comes to shove, the President of the United States will always do the right thing. The President looked at the Nicholas Cage character and said, nobody believes in that anymore. And Nicholas Cage said, sir, everyone wants to believe.


 


 I don't think I have seen a truer line in a movie in I don't know how long. "Sir, everyone wants to believe." That's the thing that Barack Obama has captured when he talks about hope and change. He's not talking about what it is, and that's the problem. But he's showing us, he's giving us that feeling that we had with Ronald Reagan that we're not these people, that we are great people. We want to believe the President of the United States is an honorable man. We want to believe those in congress are there doing an honorable job, but nobody believes it anymore. But we want to believe. I know I do. But so many times the truth doesn't matter and so you know what? We have to get to the truth. We have to.

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."
