The Christmas Sweater Announcement

GLENN: Let me address, now that we're past Labor Day and everything else, I just want a programming note for anybody who listens to this program a lot. I want to give you a little update on what's coming up this fall on the Glenn Beck program. I've told you this has been the hardest year of my life and my goal this year is just to stay alive, quite honestly, because it has been just this has been a very rough year and everything is now coming down to the last three months and after November things have or I mean, sorry, after January things are changing. But all these things have kind of been on the plate for a while now. It all starts with, of course, the election, and I want to bring you up to speed on radio and television on the election.

Not only I've tried to focus everybody here recently on the things that the media just won't tell you. I think I'm beginning to understand my role a little bit better and also not taking my role so seriously. We want to double the comedy during this election season for the radio program. But also the information that I want to give you, I want to make sure that we're giving you the things in concise ways, and that's difficult for me, so it will make a difference in your life, it will make a difference in your friend's life. So if you are looking for information, we'll be able to package it for you so you can digest it and you can bring it to your friends because I think that's what you need. I know I listen to the radio and I'm like, come on, man, I've got ten minutes; give me something I need. And you really didn't need the supercollider thing, but hey, y'all may be dead by Sunday.

Pre-order an autographed copy of Glenn Beck's “The Christmas Sweater”

That's what we're trying to do on the election. Right after that you may have heard me talk about the Christmas Sweater. If you have been listening to this program or you've been to my Christmas shows, I've told you a story about three minutes about the Christmas Sweater. It is the last gift that I gave for my mom before she committed suicide and it is something that took me 30 years to understand and 30 years to really put into place what that Christmas Gift was all about. I have decided, against the advice of almost everybody, to write this. We made it into a novel. About two years I've been working on it. At the same time we began working on the Christmas Sweater, the show, the stage show. And we're about finished with both of them. The book is now finished and it's going into print and it is coming out the day after the election. It is a novel, and it's to tell you the truth, it started out a lot more fiction than it is, but I couldn't it wouldn't it just, it wasn't right until it was damn near true. Only a few names or places have been changed. But it is the story of redemption, and much to against the advice of everyone, again, I mean, Simon and Schuster begged us to change the ending and they're like, the end? What? What? And it showed and God bless the people of Simon and Schuster. I mean, this is the biggest printing they're doing or something like that. It's a huge printing. They have got their neck out on the line on this, but it shows how many people really don't understand the real meaning of Christmas and I think you do. And this book is I don't know. Maybe, you know, the five people you meet in heaven, the Tuesdays with Morrie kind of thing that you are going to be able to read. And everybody who has read it has said, "Oh, my gosh, I see me." So that book comes out the week after the election. And unfortunately because of the election, it's coming out the week that Stephen King is releasing his book. Which is kind of great because just to be in competition with a guy who called me Satan's younger mentally challenged brother is just, oh, it's going to drive him crazy. It will just drive him crazy. Nobody really expects to sell more than seven copies but I have a feeling that this is such a universal story that it will connect. Then at the same time we're doing a book tour and a stage tour in, is it six weeks, Adam? Four weeks? Four or five? Four weeks, I'm doing 47 cities, plus the radio, television and stage. And we're going to a lot of small towns where, you know, people are busy clinging to their God and their guns and, you know, I'm going to try to pry them away for just a second, but we're coming to a city near you, in November and December. Coming up on the website soon. We're going to announce the stage shows, which is the first time ever, I have, that I have been working with, we have fully scored this stage show. We just went into the first rehearsal last week, we're going to have an orchestra but they played the music behind the production and it's just let's put it this way. Adam, who does security for the show, he was crying. It is it's really a touching, great, great Christmas Story. And we'll give you the details on when that is coming. Also on the website you can preorder your copy of the Christmas Sweater. The last three days I've been signing the autographed pages which are going to be bound into the book. The other cool thing is it comes in this it's like, whose book is this? They showed it to me and I'm like, you've got to be kidding me, right? It comes it's delivered in this leather box that looks like it's wrapped and has, you know, autographed copy and stuff. So it's perfect for Christmas. Plus, I wanted to do something special on this. If you get two autographed copies, we're going to send it to a soldier or a family in your name so they can also have a Christmas Gift from you. And you can find all that information right now at The tour schedules are going to be posted in the next couple of weeks. And until that time, we'll talk to you about all the things you need to know about the election. But that is available now at, and they will be available until Christmas or until supplies last. And I'm just very excited to share this with you, I really am. This is quite honestly this is a losing proposition, the stage show is a losing proposition. Everyone has done the financials on this show and we're spending more money on the production of this show than I think we made in two tours last year. Don't expect to actually make money. We just like to break even with it. But it is I feel passionately about this. This is one of the most important things that I have ever done, and I had to get this story right and now the only thing that's standing in the way of it is a good performance from me. But it is it's something that you're going to want to see and you're going to want to experience and we're just thrilled. You know the technology that was behind John McCain, you know that big huge screen that was like whatever they had that for, that's the technology that is just the backdrop of our show and we've had a Disney artist that has been animating the stuff for it. It is really, truly going to be an amazing thing. Nothing like this has ever been done before. So check it out. You'll find all the details coming soon at the website at It's the Christmas Sweater.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
