Glenn speaks with Marcus Luttrell about his upcoming tour

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell about his upcoming Patriot Tour. Marcus, the bestselling author of Lone Survivor, will be bringing his incredible story to audiences around the country – making stops in Houston, Austin, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and Pensacola. Get all the details HERE.

“What is the topic of your tour,” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

“It’s called the Patriot Tour,” Marcus said. “It started out kind of an idea between me and Chris Kyle and we wanted to get on the road, share our stories with the general masses. A lot of times we get up and talk to people in a private environment, and he and I felt like that would be a good idea, to get out there and kind of tell a little bit of what we did, how we did it, just to let people know, kind of, fire them up. Once we lost [Chris] that kind of buckled me to my knees a little bit, but I shook it off and keep on, you know. Do it for him, instead of with him this time.”

Before he kicks off his tour, Marcus will be attending Glenn’s Man in the Moon event. Glenn is in the process of putting together a small museum that will be on display over the Man in the Moon weekend, and Marcus donated the uniform he wore during Operation Red Wing.

“You will see a movie coming out in late December, and then in January called Lone Survivor, and it is the story of Marcus and his team,” Glenn said. “One of the greatest stories you could ever read of heroism, and Marcus was lucky enough to live through it, to be able to tell the story of what his teammates did, but this is his actual helmet that he was wearing in combat.”

Remarkably, Marcus lost the helmet during the battle, but it was returned to him two years later. He knew it was his because of the Texas state flag he had on the back of it.

The uniform and pack he was wearing will also be on display. The uniform, which had been brand new, is now reduced to little more than tatters.

“It doesn't have all the blood on it, but it will give you some idea of what the battle was like,” Glenn said. “These were the brand new pants he was wearing when he went out on operation – look at this?”

“Torn to shreds,” Pat said. “That's how you describe it.”

Glenn noted the unusual smell the clothing had, to which Marcus responded, “Smells like death.”

The items Marcus has donated to the museum are particularly poignant not only because of the lives lost that day but because it tangibly illustrates just how high a price we pay for our freedom.

“If you happen to be in any of the cities Marcus is going to be touring in, make sure you go and see him and listen to the stories,” Glenn said. “Let me rephrase this, because it makes him uncomfortable, listen to the stories about heroes from somebody who has walked the walk. Marcus Luttrell. And you can find out more about it at MarcusLuttrell.com. Thank you so much, brother.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
