The American Dream...by Van Jones?

Glenn’s old friend Van Jones is showing up in the news again, this time (shockingly!) on the Huffington Post. Van’s seen the trouble that has spread across the globe and thinks it’s time people get together and do something about it. He calls this “The American Dream Movement”, and Glenn have his reaction to the story on radio this morning.

“The American Dream movement, an idea from Van Jones, where Van Jones says we've got to come together.  He sees the trouble that is happening now all around the country, and he wants to come together.  He feels there's trouble if we don't.  He's worried.  He's worried about the way we're pulling ourselves apart.  That can't happen.  And Van Jones wants to make sure it doesn't,” Glenn explained on radio this morning.

“We've got to work together.  We've got to put something together quickly.  Can somebody put together a Facebook page?  Rebuild the Dream.  It's fantastic.  And he's asking people now to come from all over, come from all over the country and please help save the union.  Well, somebody was able to put a Facebook page together and they got it together pretty quickly.”

Shockingly, it seemed like people were able to organize themselves pretty quickly in order to make Van Jones’s call to action a reality.

“Unfortunately as we will show you tonight on television and post on The Blaze soon, the growing of the American dream movement was an idea that was discussed on July 18th, 2008.”

“July 18th, 2008, a series of sessions were held at a Netroots Nation conference and this session was called Growing the American Dream movement and it featured three speakers.  David Bonior, Tom Woodruff and Leila McDowell, all three believe that the Free Choice Act would be instrumental in building union power,” Glenn said.

“Do you remember when they were talking about the free choice act?  And they said it was about Hispanics and the American dream?  Except we told you that it was about unions?  And that, of course, was a conspiracy theorist?”

“They said the American dream movement would be instrumental in building union power and only large union numbers would ensure a positive change David Bonior sums up when he said more union members ‑‑ and we'll play this for you tonight.  More union members mean a better progressive movement.  You can't have a successful progressive movement without a workers movement.”

And what was it Andy Stern said about workers movements? “We are beginning.  We have offices now in Australia and in Switzerland, in London, in South America, in Africa.  We've been working with unions around the world.  And what we're working towards is building a global organization because workers of the world unite is not just a slogan anymore.  It's a way we're going to have to do our work.”

“So the American Dream movement that was born out of passion from Van Jones just a few days ago where he's watching what's going on and saying, "Somebody's got to do something.  We ‑‑ the country's going in the wrong direction.  We have to be good to each other."  It was born, of course, in a Huffington Post article on February 22nd, the American Dream union ‑‑ movement.  Although all of the SEIU announcements of the moveon.org sponsored 50 state rally went out on the 23rd, Jones had this idea in his call to action just the day before.  And it was so powerful that SEIU and moveon.org just started moving people right away.”

“Tom Woodruff who spoke at this session is the Director of Strategic Organizing to Change to Win at SEIU.  Now, both the American Rights at Work and SEIU are sponsors now of this new idea, completely unrelated to the, you know, conference that they had in 2008.  American Rights at Work and SEIU are sponsors of the 50 Day Rally on 2/26.”

“But Van Jones had this idea and the others are not connected at all.  Not connected at all,” Glenn concluded.

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.
