Glenn: Never Quit

After a long Thanksgiving break, the last thing Glenn wants to do is look at the news. No one wants to talk about geopolitical topics (unless it's how Hamas is the victims of the evil Israelis) and there are too many stories about how Obama is the greatest president since Lincoln. It makes him want to unplug, until he remembers the first lesson he learned from the radicals: overwhelm the system. In the aftermath of the election, Glenn feels overwhelmed and knows that other conservatives feel that way too. But on Monday night, he had a conversation with the audience where he explained why and how they needed to keep everything in perspective.

"After the election we feel defeated, we feel like we spent four years and got nowhere. We feel discouraged and perhaps at times don't have the will to want to bother fighting it anymore. And i have to tell you the natural man in me feels the same way. That's why I thank God for my kids. They teach me more than even my parents did. They bring everything into proper perspective," Glenn explained.

"On Saturday I went to my son's baptism. I got to baptize him and let me tell you there is nothing more clarifying than standing in the water with your child. It were as if time suddenly stood still and nothing else mattered other than that little boy and the path being set before him. And the responsibility I have as his parent to help him stay on that path."

"Is there any job more important than that?"

Glenn said he is often told he is a celebrity and an entertainer with the ability to impact millions, and in comparison to that what can everyday people do to change the world.

"If you are a parent, I have news for you: you are a celebrity, too. With little fans who look up to you. Who believe in you. Who love you unconditionally. They want nothing more than to just have even a few minutes of your undivided attention. That's where it all starts."

But that's not where it ends. Glenn explained that with voter turnout at an all time low, it was time to come up with a new plan to change the direction of the country.

"We're preaching to the choir and the choir gets it. And I've got news for you, we're not going to bring people in with just anti-Obama stuff. That's why Kerry lost in 2004. The left had everything going for them on paper: unpopular president, media lining up to bash bush, hollywood... And they lost. We have to be for something. We must present the solution. We must show people the way out how to lead," Glenn said.

"My goal is this: When you watch the news, and you don't know what to do or how to do it or how it all works -- you also say 'Yet' because you know where you can find the answer."

Glenn hoped that viewers knew that they could turn to his show as a place to find answers and solutions, a place to recharge and refocus on where things are going when the news of the day seems so overwhelming.

He also said that much like a person can make an impact on the life of their child and other members of their family, his audience also makes a tremendous impact on him and his life. He told the story of a woman who made him a quilt that he and his wife use at their home, and she saw the video and reached out to say she was glad to see it in their home. He said another viewer made him a Christmas sweater that he planned to wear this year as well.

"The time you take to spend with this program and the ways you go about showing your support makes a difference in my life," Glenn said. "No matter how big or small the gesture, if you make a difference in peoples lives - even if it's only one person, it's worth it."

Glenn said that he was going on a book tour later this week. "I know we're not going to get to chat like we did in the days when it was just a few of us hanging out at the book store.But even the short amount of time means something to me. And I hope it means something to you."

After telling the audience about his friend Marcus Luttrell, a former Navy SEAL, and his motto of "Never Quit", Glenn encouraged the audience to take the time to keep perspective on the effects they have on the people in their lives.

"I hope you haven't unplugged, because we may be wounded, we may be disorganized and a little dazed and confused. But we're just getting started and we win in the end."

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.
