GLENN: We announced on Friday that I am coming to a little town called Wilmington, Ohio. People say that this is Ground Zero for, you know, economic hardships in America of a town of 1200 or I'm sorry, 12,000. 9500 jobs were lost when DHL pulled out of town, but this town is not Ground Zero. This town is, I don't know, a rising Phoenix? It may have been burned but it is rising again and it is doing it without government help. And it is a tremendous, tremendous town. And I want to introduce you to the town. I don't want to I'm going to go and we're going to put on a we're going to do a show. And all the money will go to help out the soup kitchen there and also this old theater that we're doing. We're going to give some of the money to the old theater because this is an old wasn't the theater built by the guy who originally owned the Chicago Cubs? And this was his hometown and he thought, you know, my hometown should have a state of the art facility, too. Where they can bring the traveling shows and the off Broadway shows, et cetera, et cetera. And so it's been sitting there and it's this beautiful, beautiful old theater. You know, but they don't really bring the Broadway shows there anymore. And I think last year they didn't have a heater and the town always does a salute to their town and everybody comes. And last year the furnace broke and they couldn't afford to fix it but everybody came in a jacket. And they watched the show in a jacket. At least that's what I've been told. Legend has it. It is a tremendous town that also has a 24 hour prayer cover going on. They won't take money from the government because they are going to do it themselves. And they love their town. And they know that God is the answer and so there are 34 churches in town and they've decided that they are all going to pitch in and they are going to pray. And so they've opened this little place down right in the middle of town where somebody is always praying 24 hours a day, seven days a week for the town and for the people in the town. And blessings are coming. And I don't want to go and necessarily help them and showcase them and say, oh, let's all feel sorry for them. No, the exact opposite. I'd like to showcase them as, here's a town that gets it. Here's a town doing what needs to be done. It is in the worst conditions they are finding the best in themselves. So it's kind of "It's a Wonderful Life" and I invite you to come on December 15th to Wilmington, Ohio, if you're anywhere in the anywhere in the area, drive up for the day. We'll tell you more about it. I'll tell you who owns the local restaurants and, you know, what there is to if you're going to say, there's this old hotel that was just sold recently to one of the, one of the residents of Wilmington and she just loved the old hotel and she bought it on a handshake. There's no contract. She bought it on a handshake. And you know, she wanted to save this old hotel and the owner was like, well, I do, too, but I just can't run it anymore. She said, well, what can I do? And he said, buy it. She said, I can't afford it. And he said, yes, you can, and I'll help, I'll finance it myself. And they did a deal, but there's no contract. And she's struggling but she hasn't missed a payment. I just love these people. And I want you to meet them. And we'll be there December 15th. Make your plans, if you can. Come with the kids because Santa's going to be there and there's lots of surprises. It's going to be one of hopefully if anybody went to 8/28, if you went, you know that you've never felt anything like that before. And everybody I know that I have met that was at 8/28 said, man, I just, I just, I crave that feeling. I just wish I could feel that again. Well, you're going to feel it again this December. And this time, this is I believe that this will be a Christmas, a Christmas event that will set your feet on the right path for Christmas and your kids, too. You'll feel something. My goal is, as I told the guys who, you know, are on city council and everything else in Wilmington, I said, you know, here's the thing that I hope. I hope that this makes such an impression on people and you when people come to visit, they feel your spirit of your town so strongly that next year you are deluged with letters and cards and calls saying, are you doing that again. And I think they will. Maybe this is the first Christmas, the beginning of the Christmas tradition in Wilmington, Ohio. Come.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
