WATCH: Glenn opens the radio show with remembrance of 9/11

On radio this morning, Glenn opened the show with the bone chilling audio of the 9/11 attacks that has become an annual tradition on the anniversary of the attacks on American soil. It’s hard to hear – but it’s necessary to help us remain vigilant and keep the promises we made to each other in the days after the attacks.

"I got dressed this morning and I thought, I'm a completely different man than I was in 2001," Glenn said through tears as the audio came to a close.

"I was lucky enough to have found God in '99. So my journey was a little easier."

"Every year when I hear 'It's Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and my name is Glenn Beck,' I remember saying those words, trying to be strong, project confidence, give people a sense that we were going to be okay. But I was freaking out just as much as the next guy."

"Somebody called me on the air that day and said, 'Who did this? What's happening?' I didn't have a single answer. But I promised that listener the same thing I promised God that night: I'll do my best. I'll find out what's going on and I'll alert. I won't go back to sleep. I'll be up to the task. I will finish the job. I will teach my children."

"I'm a different man. I'm sure you feel the same way, but there are many days that I think, 'It's too hard. I'm tired of being a pariah.' I held the hand of my son in Anchorage, Alaska. We had been talking about fishing and coming up bear hunting. It was a good boys weekend this last weekend. This lady accosted me in the street, started yelling at me, 'We don't want you in our town. Get out of our town. We don't want you here. You're a hater.'"

"I told you yesterday that I just turned to her and I said, 'I love you.' Boy, I didn't want to say that. But that's what came out, and it didn't ‑‑ believe me, I didn't think of it. I just kept repeating it, as she was screaming on the streets at me. I finally turned around and walked away."

"As I told you yesterday, my son had been whisked away by somebody. He doesn't really understand why we have security 24 hours a day. He's just starting to learn. He said, 'Why did that lady say those things, Dad?' Each of my children have asked that question, and I answer it each time the first time for each of them the same way: 'Your dad says things that he believes that a lot of people don't like and even more people don't want to hear, but I say them because I believe them to be true and that's the most important thing that we can do.'"

"It's our responsibility. It's our responsibility to our country, our God, our children and our neighbors. It's why it's written as our first right that the government can never take away. It's the most important thing. To be able to follow the dictates of your spirit, to worship the god of your understanding, and speak and stand with everything in you."

"I don't know what I did most of my life before September 11th, but I can tell you I'm amazed at what I have done since September 11th. I want you to take an inventory of what you've accomplished in the last eleven years and if it's not a huge, long list of how you've changed for the better, then maybe you should go back and evaluate, did you keep your promise that we all made that night, that we all made. Because we're all tired. But the good news is what I said on September 11th, 'Nothing will destroy us except for ourselves' remains true today. How are we doing on that front?"

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
