The United States vs. Santa Claus: The B.S. of A.’s Brian and Jack take on the war on Christmas

What happens when big government meddles in Christmas? Find out in The United States vs. Santa Claus: The Untold Story of the Actual War on Christmas, the hilarious new book from The B.S. of A.’s Brian Sack and Jack Helmuth that will have you wondering what’s fact and what’s fiction. From IRS audits and unionized elves to gigantic reports on the environmental impact of stocking coal and reindeer farts, the government pulls no punches in its effort to bring Santa to his knees. Can a bumbling bureaucracy manage to sour even the jolliest of souls and ruin an entire holiday in the process? Spoiler alert: Totally.

Brain and Jack joined Glenn on radio this morning to talk about the premise behind the book that – believe it or not – actually came from Glenn. As Brian and Jack describe it, The United States vs. Santa Claus is “a crazy idea from Glenn Beck made funny and coherent by writers.”

“As small business owner, about two years ago, I was thinking, you know, these guys would regulate Santa out of business and do it for a myriad of reasons because he's using elves – and how dare he use elves that are not union labor and have them working all the time. And abuse of animals. And putting coal in stockings, you know, what damage is it doing to the environment. And I outlined this to Brian and Jack Helmuth, and it's really funny,” Glenn explained. “ I told them they should do a libertarian book, one that you just pick up and laugh... But also one you could give to your friends and they could laugh. And as they are laughing, you could say, ‘Why are you laughing.’ ‘Well, this is so funny.’ Yeah, it's kind of true. Gone to the extreme here with Santa, but it's kind of true, isn't it?”

Glenn has always been vocal about the importance of conservatives taking back our culture. While the left has Jon Stewart and just about every college professor in America, the right has, as Glenn describes it, “geeks or people that look angry all the time.” The goal of Mercury and TheBlaze has always been to deliver the truth, but it is important to present the truth in ways that will reach as many people as possible. Enter Brian and Jack. They turn the news-of-the-day on its head with their weekly sketch comedy show The B.S. of A. and their new book has a similar goal – deliver the facts in a funny, easy to comprehend way.

“It was fun to write, you know, to get out your frustration and aggression on what's happening in the country through jokes. I mean it's just a different way. And I think that conservatives and libertarians do issues really, really well. They do that sort of book well. But where's the humorous book in the Pantheon of these books,” Jack asked. “Glenn, you write like a thousand books a year. And they are fun, funny because you are funny. You know, the kids who write your books are funny! And this is a humorous book for an underserved market… Where's the laughter that is suitable that doesn't offend values? It's important to us and to our show, important in this book.”

“What I really like about this is it easily could have been done by Jon Stewart. The same thing easily could have been said by Jon Stewart, but they won't do it because it makes the case of a big out of control government. So, they won't,” Glenn said. “Not only, this is reason number one to buy it: It's just funny – lots and lots of laughs on every single page. Doesn't get bogged down in preaching or anything else. It's just laugh page after page. It's very funny. Number two reason: If you are trying to convince somebody that, ‘Hey, your world is starting to be insane.’ This is the back door to get them into it, to have the conversation.”

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
