Behind the scenes at 'Christmas Stories With Glenn'

Did you miss Glenn's one night Christmas event in Salt Lake City? We had fans come from Florida to L.A. and everywhere in between, there was even one couple who flew all the way from Australia just for the show. We know tickets and time were limited, so for those of you who weren't able to make it, here's a peek behind the scenes of what goes into an event like this. Hopefully we'll see you next time!

Today, we have satellites helping us do everything from watching TV to navigating to the grocery store. But back in 1957, Americans were sent into a panic because there was only one satellite in space — and it wasn't ours. The Sputnik satellite marked the beginning of the space race and, in many ways, the modern era. Four Sputniks were made: One burned up in our atmosphere, one is in Russia, one is in the Smithsonian, and one recently came up for auction ... and just guess who bought it.

Thanks to Heritage Auctions, Glenn Beck had the chance to go behind the scenes to get an exclusive look at all kinds of incredible items going up for a high-stakes auction. The auction was mostly themed around the JFK era and the space race, but there’s something for everybody — "Game of Thrones" fans, space nerds, U.S. presidency buffs, Texas die-hards, and more.

In the video below, Glenn takes a look at the speech inside Teddy Roosevelt’s jacket pocket that saved his life — complete with bullet hole and blood. The typewriter of John F. Kennedy’s secretary, a secret hotline phone likely used to dial Marilyn Monroe, JFK’s bloodstained limo seat, and the TV news camera that captured Lee Harvey Oswald’s death live. And, of course, the satellite that helped spark the U.S.-Soviet Union space race.

With each artifact, you’ll learn a new story. Which White House employee warned JFK not to go to Dallas? Which president refused to wear hats? And what does Nikola Tesla have to do with the U.S.-Soviet Union space race? It’s history like you’ve never seen it before.

Director Dallas Jenkins is changing the world by telling the greatest story of all time in a completely new way. “The Chosen” is not just a rehashing of Bible stories. It's a biblically "plausible" look at life in first-century Judea — with all the social and political tension of Israel under Roman control — and it’s won over countless fans who never thought they’d be this excited to watch a “Jesus show.”

While the show's unconventional style is paying off, there were bound to be some controversial scenes — despite the multitude of historical and religious advisers on set. On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Dallas gave an insider’s look at “The Chosen” as the third season begins, including the very controversial "10 seconds that broke the internet."

"Season two, episode five is probably the most controversial episode we've done," Dallas told Glenn. "It has a few moments that were controversial with people. One is Mary Magdalene relapses. She's someone who'd been redeemed by Jesus, walking the straight and narrow path, healed from her alcoholism and her demon possession. And she gets triggered by a few things and has a relapse. In that same episode, Jesus has a couple of conversations with John the Baptist, and they have some arguments. They're like two cousins and they are teasing each other and they have some arguments ... and some people were really upset with that," he explained.

"Then the big one — the 10 seconds that broke the internet when it happened — is Jesus preparing for a sermon, the big Sermon on the Mount, and he's by himself, and he's kind of working through the words that he's going to say," Dallas continued. "There were some people who lost their minds, just were like, 'He's God. He never struggled with anything.'"

Dallas also shared the story of how he cast the role of Jesus, the incredible experiences that he’s witnessed on-set, and the twists and turns he’s planning for future seasons as he explores the humanity of often one-dimensional characters like Mary Magdalene, Nicodemus, and Judas Iscariot.

Glenn Beck: Did the CIA just give away its role in JFK's assassination?

The government was supposed to release the JFK assassination files back in the 90s. Then, the files were supposed to be released during the Trump and Biden administrations — but, of course, COVID-19 delayed things.

This week, the files were once again supposed to be released, but the CIA vetoed the release of some of the files that it deemed just too dangerous to "the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, and the conduct of foreign relations."

Is this an admission of guilt? Or at least a huge intelligence failure? Why would the release of files from the 60s put us in danger today?

On the radio program, Glenn Beck said that for the first time in his life, he's not so sure Lee Harvey Oswald was working alone.

'They tell us it's our civic duty to DROP DEAD': Here's how EVIL Canada's assisted suicide program has become

Canada's Medical Assistance in Dying program killed nearly as many Canadians as COVID-19 did in 2021, and changes to the law will soon make this form of "medical homicide" an option for those whose only medical condition is a mental illness, including veterans with PTSD, the depressed, or even "mature" children under the age of 18.

Rebel News chief reporter Sheila Gunn Reid joined Glenn Beck on the radio program with the latest updates on what she called Canada's "culture of death," including why Canada's socialized health care policies are to blame and why she believes more people are dying from medical suicide than the government is reporting.

Reid told Glenn that while official reports say that more than 10,000 Canadians died with medical assistance in 2021, the actual number is likely much higher for two main reasons.

"Doctors are now in Canada under advisement from certain medical associations to obscure the numbers by listing the cause of death as the reason the person sought MAID ... instead of the actual medical homicide at the hands of the state," Reid explained.

"Also, that 10,000 number, those are people who asked for medical homicide in writing. But in Canada, you don't have to ask in writing. You don't have to wait ten days the way we used to have to wait. You can just ask for it and get it on the very same day now."

Reid went on to emphasize, "This really is the end stage of socialized medicine. The government is creating the suffering for so many of these people in Canada through their own ineptitude. But instead of doing a better job of alleviating people's suffering, they tell us it's our civic duty to drop dead and get out of the health care line."

Under Canada's socialized health care system, a person who is suffering from chronic pain can now get medical assistance in dying far more easily than corrective medical treatment, according to Reid.

"In Canada, the standard of care for knee replacement surgery is 182 days," she said. "However, you can seek medical assistance in dying for the chronic pain you have because of your knee on the very same day you ask for it. That's because, in Canada, you don't have to be terminally ill. You just have to be chronically ill and dissatisfied with the level of care that you're receiving."

"Over the past two years, it's really been horrendous here in Canada," Reid continued. "We had a 91-year-old lady who was in the news in Vancouver because she sought medical assistance in dying because she didn't want to go back into COVID lockdown in her nursing home. Young people with diabetes or eating disorders seeking medical assistance in dying. People who are dissatisfied with the government-subsidized housing that they're receiving saying, 'I don't want to be homeless, so I have a chronic illness, and I'm going to seek medical assistance in dying.' ... We've got up to nine veterans that are on the record saying that, instead of helping them ... Veterans Affairs suggested to them that perhaps, because you're in such chronic pain and you're experiencing acute PTSD, wouldn't it just be better for everybody involved if you dropped dead?"
