Thanks a lot Harvey: Can you believe #MeToo is only a year old?

If you don't believe in Divine Providence, I want you to consider what this weekend is. The October 5th weekend, exactly one year ago to the day, began the #MeToo movement. The New York Times ran their bombshell story on Harvey Weinstein, and it's been twelve straight months of #MeToo madness.

Now I don't want to sound insensitive to the overall issue of sexual abuse. It's an absolute nightmare for anyone, male or female, to have to endure. We can all stand together in solidarity against violence against women, violence against men and violence against children.

But the overall #MeToo movement is an out of control monster. In the span of 365 days, 429 people have been accused in a total of more than 1,700 allegations. And keep in mind, these are just the high profile cases spanning Hollywood, government and big business. If you add in the lesser known cases the number of accused doubles to over 800.

Now these numbers are relatively easy to find, but guess which numbers aren't… the amount of convictions. Good luck finding those. That seems kind of relevant doesn't it? You would think the #MeToo movement and the rest of the media would be eager to post those numbers, but they never do.

#MeToo has devolved from the post Weinstein fallout as a movement that counts accusations as facts and rushes to collect heads as if they were fighting in the French Revolution. Evidence doesn't matter, corroboration doesn't matter… the accusation is all that is important. That's what this movement has become.

This entire, very public, process has finally given us a glimpse into what it looks like when the rule of law is replaced by mob rule.

But Divine Providence reveals itself in mysterious ways. I mean, I refuse to believe that on the anniversary of the #MeToo movement we are given the biggest example, on the largest stage in the country right now, for how far #MeToo has fallen, and how dangerous this mob rule mentality is. The Senate is voting on Brett Kavanaugh twelve months to the day of when this all began. Over this past year, we've never seen any of these #MeToo cases played out in a courtroom. But now, we've finally seen one. We saw the mob salivating for Kavanaugh's head even though they had no evidence… no corroboration… and everyone the accuser said could back up her story flatly denied it ever happened.

The only thing that existed was the accusation. And that right there is the story of the past three hundred and sixty five days. I feel awful for the Kavanaugh family in the way this has gone down, but this entire, very public, process has finally given us a glimpse into what it looks like when the rule of law is replaced by mob rule. This process has been painful, but it has taught us a big lesson. The presumption of innocence is one of our founding principles. If we abandon our principles, what happened to Judge Kavanaugh could be the standard for all of us.

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."
