With Glenn on vacation for the holidays, we’re counting down the top Glenn moments of 2013. What were this year’s highlights? Stay tuned to the Glenn Beck Newsletter to find out!
This is the season to reset
Glenn often likes to refer to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s as the ‘trilogy of holidays’ because of the opportunity they offer to reset. It is the chance for us to focus on what is really important. This year, Glenn decided it was time to simplify certain things in his own life, and his Christmas special, Searching for Grandpa’s Christmas, was a chance to re-discover the true meaning of the season by spending time with his family at his ranch. There were plenty of laughs – and, yes, even a few tears – as Glenn spent time teaching his son Raphe how to milk a cow and time by himself reflecting on past traditions.
This year also brought the release of Glenn’s first Christmas album, Believe Again. In collaboration with Clyde Bawden and nine talented artists, Believe Again features Christmas classics and inspiring originals. The process of putting the album together was chronicled in a remarkable two part series for TheBlaze. Cameras captured the range of emotion as nine musicians from diverse ideological and musical backgrounds came together to record a Christmas album in only four days. How on earth can you possibly put an album together in just four days? One of the producers on the project sat down with GlennBeck.com to explain. Tonight, fill your home with the sounds of merriment
Don’t miss the Millennial Choir’s once-in-a-lifetime final performance in The Performance: Finale, premiering tonight at 8pm ET. Then, continue to fill your home with sounds of Christmas cheer with Believe Again: The Music, featuring the music videos of both traditional and original Christmas songs from the Believe Again artists. Tonight at 10pm ET only on TheBlaze. Purchase the Believe Again album HERE.

Are we witnessing the early stages of the disintegration of America as a global hegemon?
TheBlaze’s national security editor Buck Sexton once again filled in for Glenn on radio this morning, and he opened the program with a ‘deep dive’ into national security. With the Christmas season upon us, Buck decided to take a look at the non-Christmas celebrating world and explain the major shift in geopolitical relations and structure that has been underway for some five years now.

‘If we want government to do less, we need to do more’: Mercury One proves charity does not need to originate from government
Mercury One began in November 2011 with a simple mission: Inspire, organize, and mobilize to improve the human condition physically, mentally, and spiritually with malice towards none and charity for all. In the two short years since, Mercury One has been among the first on the ground when natural disasters strike. When a devastating tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma in May, Mercury One once again mobilized on the fly – sending tractor trailers full of food, clothing, and supplies to the ravaged community. Glenn recounted the devastation he witnessed in Moore on his radio program, and in a matter of hours, more than $1 million was raised with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Mercury One Disaster Relief Fund.
It is because of your generosity that Mercury One accomplished so much in 2013, and they’re only just getting started! Have you considered becoming a 2014 Mercury One Member?

Waste, fraud, and abuse: Congress cuts military benefits, keeps tax loophole for illegals
On Monday’s Glenn Beck Program, Dana Loesch filled in for Glenn and opened the show with a scathing monologue condemning the military benefits cuts found in the Murray-Ryan budget. Dana was joined by Stephen Yates, CEO of D.C. International Advisory, to discuss the implications of these benefits cuts and whether or not Congress will take action to reform the measure when they return to session in January. WATCH

The history book your kids will want to read!
History is about so much more than memorizing facts. It is about the story.

Glenn’s latest book, Miracles and Massacres: True and Untold Stories of the Making of America, is history as you’ve never heard it told. It’s incredible events that you never knew existed. And it’s stories so important and relevant to today that you won’t have to ask: Why didn’t they teach me this? Get your copy today!
