Glenn: It was a hard day...

Glenn has made a habit recently of doing late night Facebook posts. Sometimes he uses it to post pictures and update fans on what he is working on behind-the-scenes, and sometimes he uses it to vent about what is on his mind. Last night he wanted to vent. Really, really badly. But he stopped and decided to put himself in the shoes of his fans, and realized as frustrated as he gets, he has a lot more support than some people out there. He asked readers about how they get through the tough days - and there were some truly amazing responses.

"Last night about 11:00, and we had finally put the kids down to bed. Taken care of everything we needed to take care of. Straightened up the house, cleaned the dishes, finally just sat down. Tania was on the couch. I was on the couch and both of us kind of falling asleep back in forth in conversation. And I said, Tania, I just want to talk to you about some things that are just on my mind. So we had a good conversation. We went to bed. I decided to post something on Facebook. And this morning I got up and it was like 85,000 likes and I don't even know how many thousands of messages. But this is one I'm going to read all the messages, because they're unbelievable," Glenn said

"Now, if you read this, I had a change of heart at that period. Because I kind of came into it with a pity party. But I was thinking about you as I wrote this."

He wrote:

Hard day today.

Feeling kind of lost.

Questioning everything. Wondering how much is real and worth it beside family. Wondering how "normal" people do it. Work all day, come home while the other parent goes back out to their second job, raise the kids, do the shopping, pay the bills, take the kids to ballet or Boy Scouts, serve in the church, be a good husband and a good dad, study for work the next day, keep up with your loved ones - family, and dear friends and still reading scriptures and praying.

I have help and assistants and my amazing wife. Who do you have? I am sure, no one. Maybe you are a single parent.

Dear Lord. How blind and foolish I have been. Who am I to complain, judge, or feel tired? I am so sorry.

I do however want to know how do you do it? I am overwhelmed. It is funny, I can do a million projects at work, but I quickly get lost when it is the most important project of all - my family.

Maybe because I know the scars it left on us as kids. Or maybe because I have older kids and so I can see the errors I made and know that I have much left to learn.

Pray for me and I will double up on my prayers for you tonight. God is great. God is love.

From Dallas. Goodnight America.

Here are some of the responses:

Pamela N Chris Jennings: Prayers, my friend. I was at the end of my road once. It was right before Christmas. Whole world in the crapper. I started walking (I live in a rural area). I walked for miles. Came to the county courthouse area. Walked into the library for no particular reason. Picked up the first book off the 'new arrivals' shelf right by the door. Was really thinking about ending it all. Didn't even care about the book, just something to take my mind off for a few minutes. I read page one & didn't stop till the end. It changed my whole perspective. It probably saved my life. A sweet tale. It was called 'The Christmas Sweater'. Thanks, Glenn. I'll never be able to repay you, but thank you.

Tania Andrews: I am a single mother of 4 (8yo, 7yo, 4yo twins), I have 2.5 jobs and we live in a one bedroom condo. I drop the four of them off at two different schools (at least 10 miles apart) before driving to my job (30 mi from the last drop off). I used to secretly pray that God would send me a champion, a rescuer, a knight in shining armor to pluck me from my situation or at least come along beside me and help relieve some of the pressure. I've been learning that Jesus has been my rescuer, champion and knight all along. He loved me going into a dysfunctional marriage, He loved me when it turned violent and I left, He loves me and my children (and even their dad) still. I wake up with God daily, even the tough days and I cling to His promises and presence CONSTANTLY.

Julie Emler Haga: At 24 I found myself suddenly abandoned with 3 small children and another on the way. I had days when I was so overwhelmed I was sure I couldn't do it for one more day, but the sun still rose, the world continued on, and I did it once again. When I was at my lowest, my father said something I will never forget:"you can have today for your pity party, but I won't attend. The Lord never throws anything at us we can't catch and throw back." So I caught, and threw it back, eventually getting my GED ( I had quit school in the 9th grade) and then on to nursing school, graduating with a 3.98 gpa, thanks to my parents and the Lord's help. I guess my point is this: when it gets hard, there's no shame in getting overwhelmed, just remember that the sun will still come up tomorrow, giving you another chance to come as close as you can to getting it right, and if you need to drop to your knees and pray for guidance, it's ok, because we all need a little help sometimes.

Cory 'n Amy Brand: I am a minister just down the road from you. I was feeling much the same emotions you described. Then I read this scripture, it was encouraging for me hope it is for you.

Galatians 6:9-10 NIV

[9] Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. [10] Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Kirsten Raye: Today the youngest of my four children went to the nurse at school, not feeling well. I was halfway to work at 0740 when I got the call to pick her up. When I asked, "Kylie....if you weren't feeling well, why did you even bother going to school today?", she responded, "I knew you had a meeting and I didn't want you to miss it, Momma". These are the invisible scars of the single parent; they ache in our heart. But I think there is something to be said of children who understand how torn we feel, and try to help in their own HUGE way. There's a balance we all find; sometimes we are in survival mode - there's no choice. But once we've overcome that storm, we get a reprieve filled with much cherished smooth sailing.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
