Glenn turns Thanksgiving Eve into a personal conversation and a moment for empowerment

Today is a very different day.

I've sent everybody here in the studios in Las Colinas, Texas, back home and told them to be with their families and spend the day so you and I can spend some time. Whether you're in the airport or in the car driving home or you're like me, somebody who has to work today, that we could be together and share the truth on the history of Thanksgiving, the history of our country, the history of the season and what it's really all about. I am convinced that Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year's are put together really through divine providence, that when we are humble enough, we will see the meaning of Christmas and we'll be able to change our life in the new year. That's what it's really all about, I think, but it's the humility part that gets us and this is really one of those days that you either love or hate.

We all have people in our family that we don't necessarily get along with. We were talking at the family dinner table last night, my daughter and my new grandchild and my eldest daughter and my two youngest kids. We had my son-in-law's mom at the table last night. We read our -- we read our scriptures at the table last night and we started talking about family and we started talking about the holidays. And I just love having my family near, but there -- it hasn't always been that way. And I said to my -- I said to my kids, you know, it's important, I think, to get away from your parents and your family for a while because otherwise I would have been that stinky younger brother. I would always be who my family thought I was.

But I want you to come to the table today, and this is one of the reasons why I really wanted to spend some time with you one on one today. I really wanted to spend some time with you today talking about what this is really all about so you -- even if you have one of those family situations where you just don't want to go because you don't get along with somebody at the family or maybe you don't get along with anybody in the family, or maybe you're going into a situation where everybody disagrees with you. That's okay. And to recognize that we're all different and our jobs are to be a beacon of hope and not to engage in fear and worry and doubt but faith, hope and confidence and to give thanks.

Last summer I wrote, while we were in the midst of still putting together Man in the Moon, I was working on another project. It's called Believe Again. When they asked me what the name of the CD would be, I said "Believe Again." Believe, period, Again, period. So many of us have lost faith. So many of us are going to lose faith because things are going to get hard. And we live in a time now, in a world now where if it's hard, it shouldn't happen. It shouldn't be that way. "I was promised that it wouldn't be hard." You were never promised that. In fact, it is our struggles. It is the things that we question, the things that push us up against the wall. Those are the things that make us.

So at the end of spring of this year, I wrote a letter about Christmas. I had a guy who's never produced an album before get together with an album producer and get together with people that we found on YouTube. We went and we scoured YouTube. We thought, "This person sounds great." And we called them up and we asked them: "We'd like to try to do a CD but we want to do it with all people of different faith, all different faith. Is faith, does it play a role to you?" If the answer was yes, we asked them to join. Some of them quite honestly when they found out who was responsible for the CD didn't want to participate, and strangely not because of my politics but because of my personal faith. They missed the point. The point was people of all walks of life getting together and celebrating God and showing that we can work together.

But I wrote a note back in spring to all those involved and I said:

Out of all of the gifts that we can give to America as a gift, the only one that really will matter will be the gift of light.Such spiritual darkness is rolling over the entire planet and most of the world has let their light burn out over the years. Some have had their flame intentionally snuffed out. They've done it themselves. Our job will be to show the world that flicker of light again and gently rekindle that flame. With divine providence and guidance from above, if we are loyal, pure, and focused on the love that he expects from us and requires us to share, we will see that flicker begin and blaze back to life. 

Freedom is slipping through the fingers of so many around the world. And I think it's about time that we accept the mantle of new civil rights leaders of the world, at least until -- at least until the time when those people that were supposed to do it show up. Our task is harder right now because much of the world has plunged into darkness and can no longer see the truth. But those of us who are awake have something that the others don't: The power of truth. The struggles against powers and principalities that nears our ancestors have conquered before.It was just the beginning, and there is more struggle that will come. But hopefully with these songs that you will put together, travelers from around the world will find their way and help preserve the rights of man.

So many in the world are whining about trouble or whining about struggle. And in our part of the world, so much of it is for no reason whatsoever. I feel as though our dad, our God, is about to say, "You want to cry about something? I'll give you something to cry about," just as any dad would. It will be our job to recognize that we brought most of this upon ourselves. Let us see and share the gift of redemption that is far more valuable than any gold, Frankincense, or myrrh. If we follow our promptings with joy and eagerness and exactness, that those of you who are recording this CD, your voices will fill the air with praises to our God and king.

Find out what you promised him you would do in your lifetime and then may we all live our lives in such a way that we may be a gift of light, of courage, of joy in a troubled and frightened world. Many mighty miracles will be seen in the coming days and I think mighty miracles just may come from what you set out to do.

It's strange I find myself believing in people sometimes more than the people themselves do. But I really think I know who they are and what they're capable of doing.

May they this season find blessings in the love and peace of God and may they never fear, no matter what the darkness tries to do, because the gift of life, the gift of light, conquers all.

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

Infrared ear thermometer

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked?
