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.

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
