What is the best way to get kids excited about history and bring it to life for them?

My experience is if we can switch places. So in other words, I go your house and teach your kids, you come to my house and teach my kids, because my kids don't care about anything I say.I've been in the car several times and I'll be telling this great story and they start talking about something else. And I look at my wife and like, people pay good money to hear me tell great stories. My kids won't listen to any of my stories. They won't. It's like really?

How do you find that balance between maintaining your sanity yet being informed?

You think I've retained my sanity? We all look at the news and we go, we all just lose ourselves and go, this is over...We're running this giant company and I'm involved in all of it and I don't actually do the things I'm supposed to do at work. I'm doing all the other crap at work. And so I don't -- when I get home, I read, I write. It's the only time I have to really write something is at home....So what I have to do is I have to get up in the middle of the night and write.

How can we help you? Is there anything we can do other than pray for your safety and good health?

Because I care about you, here's what you can do. I mean this sincerely. Buy Comcast and then put us on. Don't send us checks or anything. I just want to you buy Comcast. So you get it in the end. You'll have Comcast. You're going to be rich beyond your wildest dreams. And we also win in that. (editor's note: Lots of sarcasm in this answer)

My 18-year-old is planning on joining the ROTC program. This terrifies me. I know we need good people in the military, but the leadership is so corrupt. I tell him we'll need him here protecting his own country and people. It's such a fantasy for these young men. What would you say to your son?

Run for your life. I wouldn't want my son joining the military now...Starting Tuesday, election day, until the next president, this is the most dangerous time in our nation's history...this is the most dangerous. Without something happening, all it's going to take is a Black Swan event. And I think we could be in deep, deep trouble. We have a chance of losing our country in the next two to three years.

What did we find out yesterday? We found out that they're quarantining our soldiers in Italy and what is Italy saying? Did you read this yesterday? They announced it yesterday afternoon that the soldiers -- our soldiers are being quarantined after the Ebola thing in Italy. And Italy is like, you're not coming on our shores. You're not coming in with your soldiers and -- and bringing Ebola into us. If they're going to be quarantined, they can be quarantined in the United States. They're not coming to Italy. And they have every right to.

And quite honestly, you're exactly right about the ROTC. I love the military. I absolutely love the military. We have a lot of really great people in there. But I have to tell you, I think we're going to have trouble in the homeland, because if an economic collapse, is coming. I don't know when. It could be tomorrow with a Black Swan event. It could be in five years or 10 years from now. I don't know. But it is coming. And unless we really hold ourselves together and start reaching out to one another and loving one another, and saying, hey, we disagree with each other but you and I, we're Americans, we're Americans and we're in this together. Unless we do that, we're in deep trouble.

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.
