Progressives on both sides of the aisle

With candidates starting to announce their intention to run for President in 2012, Glenn and company have been vocal about who they think should not be running for the nation’s highest office. “Progressives are on both sides of the aisle,” Glenn said, and talked about who should not be running and as well as who he thinks will get the nod from the GOP.

First, Glenn returned to Donald Trump. Glenn, Pat, and Stu have gone on record with their belief that Trump is not a true conservative, and they touched on some of the things he said in the past to support this belief.

“First of all, he called Iraq the worst catastrophe in American history. He said George W. Bush is evil,” Pat said.

Stu then referenced an article on Slate which took some quotes from the last time Trump was considering a run for President. “Here are some of his quotes: We must have universal healthcare. I'm a conservative on most issues but a liberal on this one. We need as a nation to reexamine the single payer plan, as many individual states are doing,” Stu said. “By imposing a one time 14.25% net worth tax on the richest, we could put America on sound financial footing.”

You can see more of Stu’s analysis of Trumps comments in the clip below from yesterday’s 4th Hour.

“Anybody who's lining up with Donald Trump, good luck. Good luck. You haven't done your homework,” Glenn said.

Despite his criticisms with Trump’s political stances, Glenn did acknowledge his respect for Trump as a businessman. “I will tell you he is a spectacular developer. Spectacular. What he does in New York City no one else can do.”

“He is a credible, credible developer who I have respect for. And he is a great promoter, which I have respect for,” Glenn said. “Politically he is on the wrong side.”

Glenn also doesn’t agree politically with Mike Huckabee.

“if you are somebody who understands progressives are on both sides of the aisle, I think Mike Huckabee is John McCain,” Glenn said. He pointed out the Huckabee expressed support for Michelle Obama’s nutritional programs.

“We talked about this during the 2008,” Stu said. “He raised taxes in his state, he's kind of overreaching with sort of the nanny sort of health style.”

Glenn also said that he felt Mike Huckabee would be the most likely to get the traditional GOP support. “Quite honestly he's the only one I think that is the perfect progressive candidate for the Republican Party. He's the guy. He will play along with the party politics. He will get along to get along.”

While he may disagree with Huckabee on politics, he does not judge the man’s heart and feels like he has a lot of positives, just not as a political leader. “I think that Huckabee is truly deeply religious and I think he truly is a Christian man,” Glenn said.

“There's a lot of positives with Huckabee. A lot of people like him because, A, he's a fantastic communicator and, B, he's one of the only guys really out there, you know, who focuses more on the social issues and that's something that not every candidate does. So I mean, I think a lot of people like him for that reason. But I don't like some of his bigger government tendencies.”

The radio crew said that Huckabee’s record is not one that supports a libertarian or small government agenda. “He's bashed libertarians several times outwardly,” Stu pointed out.

Glenn concluded that Tea Partiers should learn from Scott Brown that there are progressives on both sides of the aisle. “This is why we are attacked on this program. Because we'll take them both,” he said.

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.
