Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: We were talking before we went to break a minute ago about the passage of this healthcare bill. Nancy Pelosi is now all of a sudden for it. You know, she's like, you know, that Senate bill, that's pretty sexy, I'm thinking that's pretty good. Of course, it's the fastest way to a single payer healthcare plan. It just is. It will collapse. There's just no way around it. It can't be done. But they're not going to tell you that. This bill will pass before Christmas. I believe they will pass this. What day is Christmas? What day of the week is Christmas?

PAT: 25th.

STU: 25th.

GLENN: Thank you. Oh, is it on the 25th this year?

PAT: Two weeks from today. Two weeks from today.

STU: Yeah, 25th. And then the New Year's is the 1st.


GLENN: I don't have that. I'm questioning then, I think everybody goes to, everybody will pretty much go to vacation, what, a week, a week from today? I mean, not everybody will, but a lot of people will just go

STU: A lot of people will take that Christmas week off, sure.

GLENN: It will happen a week, you know, the Saturday, a week from tomorrow up to Christmas. Find out when they leave. It's going to happen. I think they are going to pass this thing. While everybody is nestled all snug in their beds with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. It will lessen the blow, they will think, because we'll be gone for three weeks, two weeks. And it will just be, "That's old news, yes, we passed it. The president signed it. What? It was a Christmas Gift to the American people."

Here's what I want to ask you. Look at who's guiding us right now. You know, they came out, Creamer came out yesterday. We told you about Robert Creamer. He is a guy who wrote a progressive book that David Axelrod says is a blueprint for the progressive victories. They have used it did you see the show last night, Pat?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: I mean, I showed, in the monologue I showed exactly what they say and what they're doing. And it is Robert Creamer's plan.

PAT: I thought it was amazing.

GLENN: Amazing.

PAT: The Creamer plan that we just have to say everybody's for this. Everybody's you know, there's total, it's just like what they're doing on climate change. It's total consensus, everybody wants it, we've always wanted it. And then the montage.

GLENN: Of all the people saying that.

PAT: All the Democrats saying that.

GLENN: We played montages last night on the TV show. Do we have the audio? Can we get the audio to play them on the radio?

PAT: That's what I'm starting to look for now.

GLENN: We played these montages last night where, okay, this is Creamer said, "Oh, I don't have any power; they are not doing this." And I said, okay, here's what he says to do and here's what people are doing. And we showed them, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. And it is I mean, some of them are verbatim from the book, verbatim!

PAT: I think it was John Kerry that was exactly.

GLENN: Exactly word for word from the book. All right, the reason why I bring him up is because here's a convicted felon. The progressives are all excusing him because, well, he was just stealing money from the bank, you know, for a good cause. What? We have ACORN. I'm asking you for the character of the people. You have Van Jones. You have communications director that, she thinks of Mao most often. Look at the character of the people. John Holdren, our science czar. If there's a population explosion, I can help you reduce the population, through sterilants in drinking water and forced abortions. Now, he said, "Well, that was at a time when we thought the population explosion, that was in the Seventies and it was a time of the..." but he's never said that it was a crazy idea, never. He says the population thing didn't happen. Not that even if the population thing did happen, we shouldn't put sterilants in drinking water! Look at the character of these people, and I ask you and this is controversial, but why stop now? Do you believe that America has been the greatest gift to man? Over its period of 233 years, we have made colossal mistakes but is it a divine nation, a divine idea, a divine idea the Constitution, would you say that it has done more good than any other nation in the history of planet Earth? We've made mistakes. If you are a God fearing person and I am if you believe good and evil which I do this nation is not going to fade away. This nation is far too powerful. It is far too powerful of a tool in the hands of evil. I have news for you. I believe, because we are a powerful, powerful nation, we're not going to fade away. We're either going to get better and be good or we are going to be a force for great and powerful evil. A powerful tool is only destroyed if there's nothing else to do. But if the opposition side, the side of evil, can turn that and use that and distort that power and distort that source of leadership and use it for the dark side, I mean, I hate to get all Darth Vader on you but that's really who we are. We're either going to be a force for good or we're going to be a force for evil. Let's just hope in the end we turn out to be Luke who might have started losing his hand and everything else and had some decisions. But in the end he stood and said, I am not going to go there. Let's just hope we're that and not the Darth Vader character.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."

On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
