Did a college fraternity really help write The Original Argument?

Glenn’s new book The Original Argument is now available, and this morning Glenn provided a little insight into how the book came to be.

Would you believe that he had help from a bunch of co-eds?

Yes, that’s right, Joshua Charles and a few of his fraternity friends felt the need to translate the Federalist Papers into modern English. And instead of sitting around waiting for someone else to do something, Charles and his friends took the initiative and proved that miracles really do happen.

Charles always had the intent of trying to get his work to Glenn, but because of the massive amounts of mail received each day, and the fact that Glenn is technically not allowed to accept manuscripts, the odds were not in his favor, but then came Wilmington.

After watching the Wilmington TV special, Charles knew that he had to get to Wilmington that weekend. While there, he and his friends visited the 24-hour prayer room where they quickly made an impression on the lady who runs it.

“The following Monday is the Monday that we happened to call Wilmington, and we called the prayer house and said, we want to do a show about some of the miracles,” Glenn recounted. The owner proceeded to tell Glenn about the wonderful encounter she had with Charles and his friends.

The story is nothing short of a miracle. “We call them, we fly them in. I don't know that he has written the Federalist Papers for the last year and a half. We fly them in, and he walks up to me, as he gets on the set, and he's in the audience and he said, Mr. Beck, I heard you say someone should rewrite the Federalist Papers, and he said, I have, and I've been trying to get them to you for a while. Here. And he handed them to me.”

As it turns out, Charles’ translation was right on point. “I stayed up late and read them and you can understand the Federalist Papers,” Glenn said. “Now, we have taken his work and we have gotten with experts and we have gone over every single word and we have also changed it and made it even easier to read." Glenn then took Charles's revised translations and put them in context to show how they apply today.

Not only has Charles provided a glimmer of hope for the future of this country as a college student willing to stand up for what he believes in, but it is a testament to the power of just how far a little bit of hard work and faith can go.

The Original Argument is now available for as low as $7.99 in bookstores nationwide.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
