A Message from Glenn

All-Access Back-stage Pass Blog

Hi from the road.

It is Sunday and we are on our way to the airport headed toward our next city. Last night in Pittsburgh we opened 'The Christmas Sweater". As I make notes in my journal today, several things will be remembered.

1. The audience at both shows were so kind. The standing ovation when I walked out in the afternoon took me off guard. It was humbling and made the entire show emotionally difficult for me to do. It was like you were just old friends giving me a hug and I just wasn't prepared for that but I can't tell you how much it meant to me. Don, my director was caught off guard as well. He told me last night, he always counts during applause. The average is 8. Outstanding is 13. Show stopper is 20. Yesterday he counted 38. He said he has never seen that happen on Broadway or anywhere else. I think yesterday he finally understood our relationship. He has seen over the months of rehearsal how much I care about and respect you and now he understands: It is mutual. Thank you for your trust and friendship.

2. In the first show, with the mic(S) going out, lights not working etc ... Ooof. It was a tough show. But afternoon audience I meant what I said after it was all over. I know you know that but your reaction to that little 'chat' brought tears to my eyes as well. I just love you people. I am so glad we opened in Pittsburgh.

3. These are going to be the three longest weeks of my life. When I first walked off stage I was emotionally drained and regretted doing this. In fact we talked about refunding all of the money for every show and shutting it down because we all worried about the toll this project would exact from all involved as well as our ability to meet our standards every night. I didn't know how I was going to make it last night for the second show. In fact Monday I will tell you the story about how I tore a muscle in my shoulder during the show. VERY FUNNY ... ONLY WOULD HAPPEN TO ME. :) Emotionally, much tougher than I thought. I thought I had it under control but I think it will be a roller coaster ride every night.

4. Meeting people at the book signing after the show was AMAZING. So emotional for so many. Wow. You really give me strength and hope.

If you have or will see the show, I would love to read or hear your thoughts. Please post them here after you have have experienced "TCS". I would love to hear the good and bad. What you felt, your favorite part, is it what you expected, what did you experience in the audience, what was your conversation on the drive home. And most importantly, was it worth your time and hard earned money. I really hope so, we have never worked harder on anything and as you know this is the most important story of my life. We want to do it right and would love to hear from you about it.

Well we are ready to go. See you in St. Louis.

God bless and Merry CHRISTmas.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
