UPDATED: Glenn has best radio interview of the year... with an 11-year-old girl?!

UPDATE: Thanks to the generosity of this audience, Madison has sold several thousand more packages of her mistletoe than expected, and The Maketplace is officially sold out of 'Madison's Mistletoe'! It is safe to say Madison will be able to pay for those braces.

--

Yesterday, TheBlaze reported the mind boggling story of an 11-year-old Oregon girl, Madison Root, who was told she was not allowed to sell her mistletoe at Portland, Oregon's popular Saturday Market because city ordinance bans such commerce without proper approval. The security guard reportedly added that she could continue on the sidewalk outside or beg for donations instead.

Madison was looking to sell the mistletoe she had picked from her uncle's farm as a way to offset the cost of her braces, but was chased away before she had a chance to sell any. Glenn got wind of the story yesterday and decided Madison's entrepreneurial spirit would make an excellent addition to The Marketplace by TheBlaze. 1,000 bags of 'Madison's Mistletoe' were made available in The Marketplace this morning for $9.99 each and sold out almost immediately. Madison is now working to put together more bags of her product.

On radio this morning, a remarkably well-spoken and insightful Madison joined Glenn to talk  about her experience at the Portland Market and why she refused to give up.

Madison explained to Glenn that she could not believe the security guard at the park suggested she beg for money instead of working hard and selling a product.

"I am working hard. I am trying to get something that I want, and I am doing something. I am applying myself," Madison said. "But now they are saying, 'You don't need to apply yourself. You can just sit down and beg for money.'"

Glenn said that selling Madison's mistletoe in TheBlaze's Marketplace was a no brainer because the 11-year-old has clearly demonstrated her willingness to work hard for the things she wants. He explained The Marketplace would not profit from the sale of her product, and the only extra cost to consumers is a small surcharge to cover credit card fees.

"I think there's a lot of people that would appreciate and understand that, you know, you want to work to earn your braces," Glenn told Madison.

"Yeah, what it really boils down to is this generation's work ethic, and I think that's how it's going right now, it's just disappointing. It disappoints me that this country has come down to begging instead of working hard for something you want and need," Madison responded. "My dad has his own company. He's an entrepreneur. My whole family has always been entrepreneurs. They always have some business going on."

Madison's dedication and maturity clearly impressed Pat and Stu, who wondered whether or not she could run for president.

"This is the greatest kid of all time," Stu said. "That's my favorite guest of the whole year."

"Is she too young to run for president," Pat asked. "She's great. She is fantastic. If that's not heartwarming, I don't know what is."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
