Tonight, TheBlaze kicks off its month of holiday programming with the premiere of the two-night special: Believe Again. On radio this morning, Glenn opened up about what it has been like to film these specials and what he hopes the audience will take from them.

“I am so excited for you to see the special tonight: Believe Again. If you happen to have TheBlaze on TV or if you're a subscriber, make sure you watch it tonight at 8:00pm ET,” Glenn said. “Watch it with your family. There's a whole week of specials this week and next week. This week is Believe Again tonight and tomorrow night, two-night special.”

Believe Again chronicles the journey of nine artists from diverse musical and religious backgrounds as they come together to produce and record an album of Christmas classics and originals. You can purchase the Believe Again album and learn more about the musicians HERE.

“I wrote to the staff last night after I watched it and I said, ‘Finally a reality show that actually has reality in it,’” Glenn said of Believe Again. “It captures the moment of: Can these people actually do this? Can they pull this off? And who are they? Who are they to think that they can do it? And the spirit that they come to this with is really remarkable.”

On Thursday, join Glenn and his family at their Idaho ranch as they rediscover the true spirit of Christmas in Searching for Grandpa’s Christmas.

“[On Thursday is] my family special from the house in the mountains. And we invite you for the first time to our house in the mountains,” Glenn said. “And it's a very different experience.”

The feel of the program is quite different from anything Glenn has ever done before, and it shows a side of Glenn and his family that is rarely captured in public. Glenn’s executive producer Tiffany, who has been with him since his time at CNN, wrote Glenn last night to express how special this particular project has been for her.

“I wrote [to Tiffany] because I saw a part of it last night, and there's a portion where Raphe and I go out in the morning, and we're milking cow and there were some really funny exchanges in there,” Glenn explained. “And I wrote, you know, ‘How come you took out all the funny parts because the cow was funny.’ You know, in a 12-year-old boy sort of way, it was funny. And she said, ‘Well, I suppose we could add some out takes, but there's something so peaceful about you and Raphe out there together.”

“This special feels so organic to me. I feel like I'm experiencing all of this with your family,” Tiffany wrote to Glenn. “Call me crazy, but there is a simple beauty to all of this that makes me understand the spirit of Christmas. And growing up Jewish, I have never felt that before. It's raw, honest, and beautiful all at the same time. I could be biased, but I can't help tearing up every time I've watched it.”

Next week, follow brothers Brett and Brandon Stewart of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra as they transform 800 ordinary vocalists and musicians into a multi-faith choir. Get an inside look at the entire process from auditions to rehearsals to their final two-part performance.

In addition, you won’t want to miss the Liberty Treehouse and Wonderful World of Stu Christmas specials.

“Probably the biggest one, obviously I would think, [is Wonderful World of Stu],

Stu joked.

“I would think it was the biggest one because you had this entire studio… nobody had moved for four days. The studio is closed. Nothing is happening,” Glenn explained. “And all of a sudden I'm getting phone calls from people and they are like, ‘Stu needs a ski lift.’ And, ‘We've already airlifted three of the people because they were in car accidents trying to get to the studio to film his Christmas special.’”

“I don't care about your car accidents,” Stu quipped. “Get to the studio for the Wonderful World of Stu Christmas special.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
