The most memorable ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video I have seen...

The video I want to share with you is just the beginning of a story I will begin to share with you in the coming weeks. You have seen many ALS videos I am sure over the last ten days. This is the most memorable to me.

Too many of these videos have been all about the celebrity or the challenge itself. Few have connected to what it is really all about. A horrible disease that ravages the body and kills usually fairly quickly. One of my favorite minds, Stephen Hawking, has ALS. He is the very rare exception on life expectancy.

The video was done by people who know exactly what it is and have begun to all they can to, if not cure it, give those who suffer through it a bit more time and a higher quality of a dignified life.

It is the Carrick Brain Center.

Last week I spent five days with these amazing people. What they are doing for those vets with TBI, PTSD and all others who have, almost all, given up hope of finding any answers let alone a "cure" is remarkable. I have witnessed others who had, through injury, lost the ability to speak or walk get up and walk or tell their spouse for the first time verbally, "I Love You." Many, go on to live lives they never hoped possible.

When people arrive in their offices, they have already been treated by, on average, 15 different specialists. I know. I am one of them.

They have changed and my wife and I believe, they saved my life over the last year. I have not shared some of the struggles my family and I have been going through over the past five years because I don't like tell stories when I don't know how they end. But, I know now and thanks to the doctors at Carrick it has many more chapters yet to be written and a happy ending.

The CBC has recently begun working with ALS patients and even those with Alzheimers. The early results are promising. With luck and support they will complete their work and change the world by changing the way we treat people with many kinds of brain dysfunction.

I was there when they filmed this ice bucket challenge on Friday morning. Early that morning, my doctors came in with wet hair and tears in their eyes. I hope to share the story of the woman in this video with ALS with you and so many others soon.

Let me begin with a quick story that happened to me Monday morning as I was in their "civilian relaxation room" (where non vets can go to rest after, what is in some cases, very intense treatment). There, I met a man named "Kevin." He is a police officer. He suffered a severe brain injury in 1997 when he was hit head on by a semi truck, he has not been in the field since. He now works in the evidence room. We sat and just talked for a few minutes. Then, something amazing happened. Before either of us knew it, the two of us along with others including nurses were on our knees praying and thanking God for all of His mighty wonders. I have seen doctors and their offices all over the country and the world. Nowhere have I seen a place so willing and able to allow people of faith to include God in the healing process.

The other important point in this story is what Kevin told me on Friday. In his first four days, Kevin made more progress than he had made in the almost twenty years since his trauma.

Pray for these heroes of medical science. This is all cutting edge and because of that, no insurance carrier will cover the costs ... Yet. Tania and I help personally when and where we can, Mercury One has seen the results in former patients like Marcus Lutrell and others and has assisted financially and has made an ongoing commitment to help our hero vets that have been brushed aside and lost in the nightmare that is the VA.

I am so thrilled to report that the word about them is spreading like wild fire and thus there are many charitable pioneers that are getting on board to help raise awareness and much needed funds.

Unfortunately, because their results are many times nothing shy of miraculous, people who have given up are calling and traveling from all over the country to see if they can help. Some times they cannot, many times they can, but what I find so heartening is, at all times they care. I have seen their staff weep with sorrow for those they had to send away long after the would-be patient left and Thank God, I have seen them weep with joy on multiple occasions because of the miracles of hope and healing that have been found.

These people make a difference in people's lives. Those who have given up hope find it again when they cross the threshold of The Carrick Brain Centers.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

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.
