The latest on ex-marine Brandon Raub’s incredible (scary) story

On radio this morning Glenn shared the latest on the incredible (and frightening) story of Brandon Raub. Raub, a 26-year-old former United States Marine, was in sentenced to 30 days in a psychiatric facility after he was taken into police custody last Thursday over posts he made on his Facebook page that criticized the government and called for a revolution. A judge has since ordered for Raub’s release because the government had no clear case against him.

“Here's what's really amazing on this story,” Glenn said. “Every family member, every friend said Brandon is definitely not insane. No one came forward to say he was insane or unstable. In the Facebook post that we saw he didn't specifically threaten anyone. He made vague references to revolution. He talked about taking back the Republic. It is crazy.”

While Raub’s comments are not necessarily mainstream, he makes no clear threat against anyone or anything that would warrant an involuntary psychiatric evaluation.

“[Last] Thursday [Raub] gets a knock on the door,” Glenn explained. “He opens it up, and the F.B.I. says ‘We see some disturbing posts. We need to come in and search your home and talk to you.’ Raub asked see the warrant, and they don't have a warrant. They threw him down on the ground because they said he was hostile. They didn't have a warrant! They didn't have a warrant for his arrest. They threw him on ground. They handcuff him. The F.B.I. puts him in the back of a car and takes him to a mental institution for an exam.”

This is a man who risked his life to defend American principles and liberties (like free speech), and he was taken into custody without a warrant for expressing his views. Meanwhile Black Panther members are threatening to militarize and spewing racist remarks, while the cronies from Occupy Wall Street threaten to overthrow the government. Where is the F.B.I. in those cases?

“The Black Panthers are saying they are militarizing. They are developing an army to drag crackers out of their house, and beat them, and kill them in the streets,” Glenn said. “Where's that? We have video of people on MSNBC from Occupy Wall Street saying this is a revolution. This is not about repairing the system, this is about tearing the system down. We have that. Are they in mental institutions?”

“There's something wrong and when they're scooping up our military, and they're trying to make them look insane,” Glenn concluded. “Really not good. This is a warning sign.”

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.
