Glenn arrives in Wilmington

America's First Christmas - Tonight on Insider Extreme - Learn more...

GLENN: Yesterday we were in Cleveland in the morning. And then we went to Strongsville. Then we went to Columbus, Dayton, Cincinnati. The bus rolled into town last night, and we went because we have to have a food fest, really that's what this whole show is about. People think, oh, you're doing really good stuff. No, just going around the country eating. So we stopped in Germanville. The village. German Village. I can't understand a thing they're saying that's okay they can't understand what I'm saying either. We went to German Village, which I've never been to. That's a cool town. How many people live there? Anybody have any idea? It's really -- I mean, it's surprisingly large, is it not? Pat are you just going to be?

PAT: No.

GLENN: That is good.

PAT: Always a question. Do I know what the population of Germantown is?

GLENN: It's a big place. I'm wondering if anybody had a guess.

STU: 9,314.

PAT: I was going to say 7,612.

STU: 6,984,000?

PAT: 8403.

STU: 68 trillion.

GLENN: So anyway we went to German Village -- German Village, and we went to, what's the name of the place? Schmidt's. Schmidt's Sausage Haus, spelled with a U and an A. It's fantastic. They're fans of the show. If they're listening now keep making the sausage because we're coming back. You go to this place and it's German sausage and sauerkraut, and it's packed at least it was when we got there. It was packed really, really good. And then you walk outside and there's a fudge house right across the street.

PAT: Which they also started.

GLENN: I thought to myself: Jesus --


Am I at your house now?

STU: That is the intersection that he comes back to.

GLENN: It really is splits the mountains to get to the sausage and fudge house. And last night we got in about 11:00, and they kept one of the pizza houses opened, which was delicious. What was the name of it? Generations Pizza. Great, great pizza. And it's all family-owned and operated and everybody was there. And people from the town were there, and I asked who is from around the country, people from California, North Dakota, Georgia, what am I missing? Virginia. Houston.

STU: I want to say a lot of people from Detroit which made me think they were just escaping at really any cost.

GLENN: It really was. Really was. They didn't even know who we were. It's just I'm from Detroit. It's insane. They're eating each other in the streets. Didn't they just close down part of Detroit recently, like 20 percent? Were we on the bus and we heard.

PAT: They said they were shutting down services. Shutting down services.

GLENN: Good night, everybody, that part of Detroit. See you later, good luck, you're on your own, we're not coming back to this part of town. That's what's happening now in Detroit, which I don't really understand how you do that.

STU: Everybody's moved out of the city so they don't have any revenue to provide services to the entire --

GLENN: That's when you bring a bulldozer.

STU: No, I think they're actually listening to you. They're bulldozing houses.

GLENN: They should have done that in 1975.

PAT: Or they might think of a sausage house and a fudge factory. Bring back some people to the area.

GLENN: Wouldn't be bad. Wouldn't be bad. So then this morning we got up. We stayed at the General Denver Hotel, which is this little hotel right across the street. Built around, what, 1900, 1910, something like that.

PAT: Did you want guesses again? 1812.

STU: 1704.

PAT: 2006.

STU: 2,109.

PAT: 1403.

GLENN: So we --

STU: Columbus, really?

PAT: That's what I heard.

GLENN: Yeah, not really sure. That was a bad guess, you think? You'd be lousy on Jeopardy. So last night, before we went to bed, we went over right next to the hotel is -- I'm sorry, I don't remember the names of any of these things. What is the name of the prayer house right next to it?

PAT: Anybody know the prayer house.

GLENN: Wilmington Prayer House. Guesses again. So we were at the prayer house last night. Have you been across the street to the prayer house, anybody?


GLENN: Go across the street. Like right now, go. No. It's fantastic. Went in last night. It was probably about 1:00 when we went in. And they have taken an empty storefront and redone the whole thing. I thought it was in honor of me. But, no, they've been there a long while. All chalkboards, across all the boards. People write down and say so and so has cancer or so and so is struggling for an answer on this. And people pray 24 hours a day seven days a week for the town of Wilmington.


GLENN: It is such an incredible place. I mean, it is -- it's unlike anything I've ever seen. Last night, 1:00 in the morning, there's a musician there. And anybody see the Truman Show? Do you remember the Truman Show where the guy was playing the soundtrack live with spooky dude George Soros? And he was playing the sound track? There was a musician there playing music while people were praying. It was so unbelievably cool, and I was talking to the lady who started it, and I actually sat at one of the chalkboards, and I said a prayer. And I wrote on the chalkboard my prayer that the nation would see Wilmington. And I don't mean that they would see the trouble, they would see the strife. This is a town that's 12,000 people. They lost 7500 jobs. Not that they would see that. They've seen it. You watch 60 Minutes and see that, that's all they show you. What they need to see is the people. They need to see the joy. They need to see the teamwork. They need to see the people coming together. And as I wrote that on the chalkboard and I walked back into the back and I gave the woman who started this great place a hug and she said, "You know, I started this a few years back." And she said, "I just, you know, I just stood where I was told to stand." And she said, "It came to me I should start a prayer center here in town." She said, when I had that thought, I had the impression that it would be the start of something for the nation. That it would -- that the eyes of the nation would see this and it would inspire them and we would get through our tough times."


And I took her back over and I said, "Let me show you what I just wrote on your chalkboard." I have a documentary film unit that actually -- they're all Ohioans, I don't want to base them in New York, it will taint them. So they're all here in Ohio. And I got a call -- the reason we're in Wilmington, is I got a call about, I don't know, six months ago, and they said, "You have to come to this town. You have to see this town. Can we take some extra time and shoot some things in this town so you can see it." I said sure. So we watched this little mini, you know, eight- or ten-minute documentary on Wilmington in my office when they got back. And I said, "We gotta go there. We have to go there."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:
