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.

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
