Santa Shows His 'Number One Elf' What Love Looks Like

In case you missed it, a story of epic and heart-wrenching proportions is making the rounds on news outlets and social media channels. It shows the magnitude of a simple act of love.

"I want to tell you just an incredible story from Tennessee," Glenn said Monday on radio.

The story involves Eric Schmitt-Matzen, a 6-foot, 310-pound gent that looks every bit the real Santa Claus --- and a terminally ill boy who died in his arms.

Schmitt-Matzen, who plays Santa over 80 times each year and was born on Saint Nicholas Day, received a call several weeks ago from a nurse at the local hospital about a very sick 5-year-old who wanted to see Santa.

"He said, Great. I will be right there. Let me change into my outfit. And she said, Don't. There's not enough time. Your red suspenders that you always wear will be enough. Come right away," Glenn described.

Within 15 minutes, he was at the hospital and met the boy's family. After learning the boy was very close to death, he entered the room with a small present from Santa and the elves.

"He came in and he sat down on the end of the kid's bed . . . whose eyes opened up wide. He said, So what is it I'm hearing about you missing Christmas this year? You can't miss Christmas. You're my number one elf," Glenn said.

The little boy tried to sit up in bed, and said, I am? He also asked a very poignant question: They say I'm going to die. How am I going to know when I get to where I'm going? How am I going to know that I'm there?

"This amazing man sat there . . . I can't imagine . . . how would you answer that?" Glenn asked. "He sat there at the edge of the bed, and said, Will you do me a big favor? When you get there, you just tell them that Santa said you're my number one elf, and they will let you in.

Moments later, the little boy died in Santa's arms.

"This man is a former Army ranger and said that he got out of the room as fast as he could, let the family have their privacy. And he had a hard time driving home through the tears," Glenn said.

On Facebook this morning, Glenn posted this message:

This is what love looks like. I don't know if I could have ever put the red suit on again. Only a Santa that was a ranger. Blessings to all.

And may God bless his new number one elf in heaven.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
