This season is the opportunity to reset

Glenn has been talking about the importance of the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s trio of holidays for a few weeks now, and, on radio this morning, he explained why the holiday season offers the perfect opportunity to “reset” and “examine” your life and to “figure out who you want to be.”

“The trilogy of holidays, as I like to call them, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's – it's a chance for you to reset,” Glenn said. “It's a chance for you to put into place all three things that are important in life."

As Glenn sees it, Thanksgiving offered the chance to express humility and gratitude for everything - both the good and the bad - that you have.

Glenn explained that his family recently received some bad news, but he finds himself proud with the way they have handled the situation. It is easy to give credit to God for the good things in life, but it is equally important, as Glenn explained, to recognize that the not-so-good things come from Him as well.

“It all comes from him. It's all right. It's all right. It's all going to be good. That's a miracle,” Glenn explained. “So the first part of the trilogy is Thanksgiving and the humility, to see the blessings of the good and the bad.

The second part of the trio is Christmas, and while we often look at Christmas as the celebration of the birth of Jesus, Glenn explained why it is actually a day to celebrate the life of Jesus. Christmas represents an opportunity for rebirth – to reexamine what it is you are supposed to do.

“And then it's the birth of the baby, but it's not just the birth. That's not what it's about. It's the death. Why did he come? To start over, to send you a clear message: You can start over,” Glenn said. “My life is so different than it was in the 1990s. Everything about me – fundamentally to the cellular level – [is] different because I was given the chance to start all over again. And you can [too].”

Glenn warned against making “stupid” New Year resolutions that “don’t mean anything really.” Instead, Glenn encouraged his listeners to consider what it is you want to be. “Figure out why you are really here,” he said.

To illustrate this point, Glenn told the story of a man named Joe:

Joe lived a long life, and he died peacefully in his sleep. Next thing he knows, he's entering the pearly gates, and St. Peter greets him and says, "Anybody here you want to meet?" And he's like, "You've got to be kidding me. I can meet anybody?" He's like, "Yeah, you can meet anybody." He's like, "Well, I've always been a baseball fan. I'd like to meet the best player you've got up here." St. Peter says, "Paging Lou Gehrig, Lou Gehrig to the pearly gates, Lou Gehrig." Lou shows up. He was taking batting practice. He takes a break. They talk for hours about baseball and the power of humility.

St. Peter says, "Anybody else you want to meet?" He says, "Yeah. Tesla. I read this book by Glenn Beck. I was actually reading his book when I fell asleep and then you took me and then I didn't get a chance to finish the Tesla and Westinghouse and Edison chapter." He says, "Hang on. Nikola Tesla to the pearly gates. Nikola Tesla to the pearly gates." They had a long talk.

St. Peter says, "Anybody else?" He says, "Yeah. You know what? I was an American soldier. Tell me, who's the greatest general here?" St. Peter thought for a moment. This time he didn't page anybody. He takes him over to an alley right around the corner and there sitting on a bench was a cobbler repairing a shoe. He said, "There he is. He's the greatest military general that ever lived." Joe said, "I don't recognize him." St. Peter said, "No, you wouldn't. He had all the values and the characteristics of a great leader, but his father was a cobbler, and his father before him was a cobbler, and so he felt he should be a cobbler. He thought it was the right thing to do – not for himself but for others. He never followed his passion, but he's a good man."

“Be remembered for doing not what you think others want you to do, but find out who you really are. Find out why you are here. Start all over again. Be your authentic self. You have unique talents,” Glenn concluded. “When you get to the other side, have somebody say, ‘I want to see the best of...’ Don't have St. Peter come around the corner and say, ‘It should have been him, but he did what everybody told him he should do. He did what he thought was the easiest. He listened to others.’”

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."
