Texas Rangers star Josh Hamilton will be on GBTV tongiht at 5pm ET in his first one on one interview since his relapse. The interview will be conducted by his pastor, Dr. James Robison, as Glenn is out on a “special assignment” until Monday morning.

“I'm so moved by the Josh Hamilton story in the first place because it is a story of redemption,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

Glenn, notoriously clueless when it comes to sports, admitted, “is the one sports story I can talk about with some credibility. Well, I don't know about credibility but I mean, I can talk about it.”

Pat described the story, how Hamilton was one of the biggest baseball prospects to come along in a while but drugs and alcohol ruined his life, and he was out of baseball completely for a while.

“And then he got his act together. I think that's when he met his wife and really put his life back together. And obviously became a huge star in the major leagues and in '05 he had his first relapse,” Pat explained.

In the past week Hamilton had his third relapse.

“He lives in my general neighborhood and everybody that I know down in Texas just says he and the family are just, he and his wife are just amazing people, just amazing people. And Tania and I were so hurt to hear that he was struggling with alcoholism and, you know, the relapse,” Glenn said.

Being that Hamilton had his relapse in Dallas, the radio crew wondered why someone would serve him.

“Nobody else is responsible for that drink. However, I do have to question the sanity or the humanity of the guy, the bartender and the people at the bar,” Glenn said.

“You know, we've talked about this over the past couple of days a few times and I'd say it's about 50/50 split. There's a lot of people who take that sort of, I guess I would describe it as libertarian bet of saying, look, it's his responsibility whether he's going to drink or not. I'm not going to refuse him alcohol. He's not being dangerous to other patrons or anything else; maybe I should just serve him. But to me it's like you you're a member of this community. I mean, I can't imagine people inDallas are happy with this bar for serving him. It's like you're ruining potentially just selfishly you're ruining the team's year. This is a team that's gone to the World Series twice, two years in a row,” Stu said.

Nevertheless Glenn, also a recovering alcoholic, sympathized with Hamilton.

“Alcoholism is the hardest thing to kick. It is. It's with you for your whole life,” Glenn said.

Glenn shared his own struggle admitting that there have been times recently when he has feared falling back into old, bad habits.

“I haven't talked about this at all but this has been the hardest two months of my entire recovery, the last two months. Just been very difficult. I've asked you to pray for us, pray for the family,” Glenn said.

On Wednesday night, James Robison will be filling in for Glenn while he goes to work on a special project that he will reveal on Monday. Robison joined Glenn on radio to discuss some of Hamilton’s struggles and what the two will discuss Wednesday on GBTV.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.
