Keith Olbermann OUT at MSNBC

Friday was a sad, sad day in the world of cable news as Keith Olbermann was fired from MSNBC and the network’s popular show Countdown came to an end. Not only did MSNBC lose one of their flagship program and one of their most popular hosts, but also Glenn lost some easy competition.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Keith Olbermann has left the building,” Glenn announced on radio this morning.

Glenn predicted Olbermann’s exit from MSNBC back in Novemeber.

“You are going to hear the liberals come out and start to throw MSNBC under the bus and throw them under the bus hard.  And here's why.  MSNBC is marked for death.  If it is sold to Comcast, Comcast will run it like a business.  If it remains liberal, it will just be a good liberal station.  It will just run things that will actually get ratings.  If it is ‑‑ if it's not, it will most likely just be a news channel or ‑‑ I mean, I don't know what they're going to do with it.  But it won't feature Keith Olbermann,” Glenn said.

“So now we know [Beck] doesn't know anything about television, either,” Olbermann said at the time in response to Glenn’s prediction.

Glenn wished Keith the best, but pointed out that Olbermann has a history of clashing with bosses. “From every indication, Keith Olbermann is the biggest pain in the ass in the world.  And nobody liked working with him.  And he was impossible to work with.”

Glenn told a story of the time he was leaving CNN and remembered that he thought that network should embrace their liberal viewpoint in commentary the same way that Fox News had embraced their opinion commentators.

“You know, when I was over at CNN, I said you guys are going to be left in the dust.  You'll be left in the dust.  Because Fox, while the news department doesn't have any opinion, Sean Hannity has an opinion,” Glenn said.

“But everybody thinks you [at CNN] have an opinion.  So why not just embrace your opinion or what they think.  Let your news be your news.  But stop with this nonsense that ‘We're objective.’”

“Because somebody's going to pick a side and they're going to steamroll you.  And exactly that happened with MSNBC.  And MSNBC chose a side, which left CNN in this middle ground.  Because they think they have this credibility that they don't.  They don't have that credibility.”

“I'd much rather have a person talking to me and being honest about where they are coming from and then I can decipher that from that position.  I can see what you are and then I can see what you're saying and then decipher for myself,” Stu added.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
