Moment of Truth

GLENN: So anyway, last night I watched American Idol and I watched it through my fingers. Is anybody watching American Idol this season?

STU: I didn't watch it last night but I saw several before that.

GLENN: I had forgotten how much of it is, it's a true car wreck, it really is. You watch through your fingers. I really do watch American Idol, the first part, through my fingers. I'm like, no, no, no, ow, ow, ow. You feel so bad for them.

STU: It is brutal. I would say that they actually have, they may have taken a little bit of the heat from last year. Remember last year they were saying they were too mean. This year they seem to be ending them all in an up note.

GLENN: That's because it's Paula. "I want to vote for you, I really, I wish I could." No, you don't.

STU: My favorite thing that they say to them like it's okay is, "Not for this competition." Like, "There's another singing competition you might just get through."

GLENN: You know the one with the bar on Friday night, not the good bar in your neighborhood but the bar that, just like the really bad people go to? That bar probably will have a competition and that one you could probably win.

STU: Well, not win.

GLENN: But you're right for that competition.

STU: They don't say that you'd win but they say -- you know.

GLENN: And then I watched one of the worst television shows of all time.

STU: This guy, let me guess.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Absolutely 100% has to be the Lie Detector Show.

GLENN: The Lie Detector Show, one of the worst shows of all time for, I don't know how -- for many reasons, for many reasons, one of which -- and I brought in some audio -- one of which is how long you have to wait for the answers and then whether or not that's going to be an accurate answer or not. And I'm not kidding you. It was almost -- Dan, you have the audio of this? Go ahead. Play it. It's almost like, have you ever eaten cookie when you weren't supposed to? Hmmm? (Mumbling.) Yes!

STU: You have to explain, too, Glenn, that they took the Lie Detector Test off screen earlier.

GLENN: So they've already been asked this question.

STU: Yeah, they knew the questions, they knew out of a certain range which ones they would be asked. So they already know the answers. They know how they answered them previously. It's just that typical reality shows, sort of like they have to look around and act like they are thinking about it even though they know.

GLENN: I don't know. I don't know.

STU: This is not edited.

GLENN: This is ridiculous. Listen to this.

Voice: Did you ever get a passing grade just because you were on the football team?

GLENN: Oh! He's still thinking!

VOICE: Actually no.

GLENN: Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it.

STU: What's the answer?

GLENN: Wait for it! Wait for it! Still waiting!

VOICE: True.

GLENN: Oh, thank goodness. Now --

STU: I love -- you've got to love the contrite, "Whoa!" Every question. They are not even dramatic questions, half of them.

GLENN: No. Half of them are, did you ever, did you ever lick an envelope and then kiss somebody afterwards with that icky envelope taste in your mouth? Whoa! "I don't know if I can admit that on national television." And then they get on these questions that there's no way you can win. You might win money but you may lose your job. You may lose your family. This is the most despicable show on television and that's saying something.

But before we leave the time thing, I just have to play -- I took 40 minutes of this show and I edited all of the pauses out and all of the, you know, "So you're a football player, let's get back to the game." Took all of that stuff out. 40 minutes. How long do you think 40 minutes, when it just plays the game, how long do you think 40 minutes edits down to? Even I was surprised. I will play the 40 minute, excuse me, the edited 40 minutes after this commercial and I'll give you a hint. I only have two minutes after this commercial.

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."
