When the announcement of Mercury Ink was made back in June, Kevin Balfe, SVP of Mercury Radio Arts, promised, “With Mercury Ink, we can work with the best writers around to bring their vision to our audience while maintaining the high standard of quality that Glenn’s own books are known for.”

“I am so excited about this book,” Glenn told listeners back in June. Glenn said that he had been looking new ways to reach out to kids, and Michael Vey provided a new way to connect with them. “How do we possibly do teach really good values and lessons without teaching. If a kid smells there’s a lesson – they’re done.”

Glenn said he was thinking of a book or a graphic novel that would accomplish this, but then he got a phone call from Richard Paul Evans who told him about the Michael Vey series. Glenn said that during his conversation with Evans, the author told him he felt that Glenn and his company should be the ones to publish it. After speaking with Glenn and Kevin Balfe, Evans sent a copy of the manuscript to Balfe, who passed it to Glenn’s agent George. George immediately walked it across the street to a thirteen-year-old neighbor. The next day, the kid told George it was the best book he ever read – and Michael Vey passed its first test.

Glenn gave it to his daughter, who raved about the book and ultimately convinced Glenn to publish it under Mercury Ink. “I think it’s as good as Twilight or Harry Potter quite frankly,” Glenn told fans.

In an interview with GlennBeck.com, Evans said that he first started had the idea of writing the book while working on his other book, The Gift, about a boy who also had a special power – the power to heal. Evans also has a long love of superheroes and felt that Michael Vey is “the book I always wanted to read when I was little.”

When writing the book, Evans said that he was transported back to his own childhood. While he doesn’t share Vey’s superpowers, Evans also grew up with Tourette’s syndrome and wasn’t popular with cheerleaders and the “in crowd”. Evans had been wanting to publish a Young Adult novel for a long time but had been looking for the right story. When he came up with Michael Vey, he knew he had discovered a story he loved – and the response from readers has been very positive.

Evans hopes that young kids and families will discover a love for reading through the book, and that parents end up enjoying it as much as the kids. He has already found children falling in love with it, as they sent advanced copies out to some schools. The children, who were not allowed to take the book home, would start coming to school early to get their hands on the book – and one student even tried to bribe their teacher with lunch money to get their teacher to let them take the book out of class.

Video from a school that got an advanced copy can be seen below:

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
