Update on Glenn’s health: “I’ll eat the sticks!”

Among the myriad of health issues that Glenn claims to be afflicted with, his ADD is by far the one that drives everyone else crazy. For example, on radio this morning Glenn was wishing Keith Olbermann a fond farewell from the world of cable news when he randomly started to complain about the studio temperature (again), leading to an update on some health issues he has talked about over the past few months.

In the middle of Stu’s analysis of CNN’s “unbiased reporting”, Glenn started to comment before randomly complaining, “It is boiling hot in this room and I can't take it.”

“That's the ADD we deal with every day,” Stu said as the discussion veered wildly off topic.

For anyone who wants to know, Glenn usually has the temperature set around fifty degrees, and he still complains about the heat even as Stu and Sarah freeze to death in the next room. The temperature when he began to complain today was a moderate 68.25 degrees Fahrenheit.

So, why did the studio temperature become an on air issue this morning?

“Over the holidays I was officially diagnosed as having small fiber neuropathy,” Glenn revealed.

Glenn explained that the cold aggravates the symptoms, but he also wanted to keep the studio painfully cold (usually painful for everyone but Glenn). “And I have to tell you, I may just rather be in pain and not think than be hot all the time.  I hate the heat.  I am so hot,” he said.

“Yeah, I actually would rather kind of see you in pain than the amount of sweat that you're currently producing,” Stu joked.

“I'm like Letterman.  I like it very cold on the air.  And last week during the TV show I was wearing gloves.  I'm supposed to wear stupid gloves all the time indoors if it's cold.  Like I'm turning into the guy from ‑‑ that ran for mayor here in New York.  I'm that guy,” Glenn said, comparing himself to Jimmy McMillan of “The Rent is Too Damn High Party”.

You don’t remember Jimmy McMillan? Here’s a a video to remind you:

Come to think of it, that’s kind of how Glenn looked on radio this morning:

Glenn said he even reached out to Deidre Imus, who has helped her husband Don Imus in his battle with cancer by putting him on a strict and unusual diet.

“I think it was Thursday, I reached out to Deirdre and I said, look, I know you're saving your husband's life with cancer, which I believe is a year‑long course in any ethics class.  Do you save Don Imus from cancer?” Glenn joked.

“I wrote and I said, ‘But you're, like, feeding him sticks, aren't you?’  And she said, ‘You can either whine about not having the food that you want and be sick or you can eat the sticks and live.  Which is it going to be?”

Don’t bother asking Glenn for more information on his health. Anyone who works with him knows that he can’t keep his mouth shut about anything. Want to know why he keeps saying, “I’ve lost control of my company”? It’s because Mercury doesn’t dare trust him with anything that needs to stay confidential.

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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
