Two members of Glenn's staff prepare to depart for the Middle East, right to the front lines of ISIS

Glenn announced the upcoming departure of two of his staff members for the Middle East on his TV show Wednesday night. Glenn's head writer, Dan Andros, and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, made the decision to travel there so the audience could visually experience what it means to be a Christian in that part of the world.

"I'm going to be hobbling here for a couple of weeks because two people that I depend on to help me put this show together every day are going away," Glenn said. "This is the first team that we're sending over in the next 8 to 12 weeks."

Glenn described Jason - a former Marine previously on Glenn's personal security detail - as a "warrior," both in the physical sense and spiritually.

Dan was quick to point out, "I'm not a warrior. I am going to be standing behind Jason at all times."

Requesting prayers on their behalf, Glenn said they're going to be "literally on the front lines with ISIS."

Why would they want to do something so potentially dangerous?

Dan explained he felt moved after reading what one refugee said after being kicked out of his community by ISIS.

"He just said, 'I feel like nobody cares,'" Dan said. "My hope for this trip is that you get to meet these people and that it moves more of the country into some sort of action."

Jason agreed, saying, "We want to show everyone that there is something that you can do. Everyone can play their role," Jason said.

Glenn's response?

"This is what I've been saying that we're at a time of heroes," he said.

JASON: On this issue, now, full disclosure here, we’re not journalists.

GLENN: Good.

JASON: Dan’s a writer, and I’m a researcher. I’m a former military guy. I’m basically a Marine that does research now, and Dan’s a writer. We’re basically just like the audience is. We’re the same. But I think that the whole reason for this is to get two guys that are not journalists, we’re not part of the mainstream media, but we want to show you the same thing that The Root was designed to show, which is what is going on. We want to take the audience on a trip with us to the front lines right there. We want them to say who are the good guys? Who are the bad guys?

GLENN: There are good guys there.

DAN: Because that’s what the media does is they just show you the wreckage. That’s all they want to do is show you the wreckage. What we want to do, since we’re not going in there as one of these guys to just sit there and point to the carnage that’s going on, we want you to see who the good guys are, meet them.

GLENN: They’re heroes.

DAN: Honestly, it’s not like, I know Jason’s just been chomping at the bit to get over there, but it’s not been my dream to go on the front lines against ISIS. I clearly drew the short straw here. But I’ll tell you though, what turned it for me is when I see quotes like, there’s one quote actually in the media that stuck out for me where they interviewed some refugee who got chased out by ISIS. He just said, "I feel like nobody cares." When you just watch the wreckage and you just see some shots and some explosions, it’s easy not to care because it’s just so far away. But when you meet the people and when you get to know them, that’s what my hope is for this trip is that you get to meet these people and that it moves more of the country into some sort of action.

GLENN: This is what I’ve been saying that we’re at a time of heroes. Dan, I’ve known you for 15 years. You’re no hero, and I’m not a hero, not even close.

DAN: We’re not heroes.

GLENN: You’re closer to a hero than we are. We’re not heroes. Can you believe we’re here, where not for money, not for fame, not for anything else, just because I do care, and it’s time for somebody to stand up? That’s amazing.

JASON: And that’s part of the purpose of this trip. We want to show everyone that there is something that you can do. Everyone can play their role.

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
