42 Days left until America decides

America has two very distinct choices this November the 6th on election day. One candidate believes all things flow from government while the other believes limited government intervention is the best way to go. Polar opposites. Which does America prefer? That was the question Glenn encouraged listeners across the country to ask themselves on radio this morning when he told the story of Duncan Hines, an American entrepreneur who managed to leave his mark on America without relying on the government.

"In forty-two days America will decide. Probably the most important thing that the America has decided in maybe a 150 years," Glenn said.

Glenn said that Americans have the choice in November to support a philosophy that holds redistribution as a core tenet. They can vote for a man who believes that government programs and institutions are essential to and indivisible from personal success. Or they can vote for someone who believes in individual success and small government, who thinks that solutions are found at home with families and with faith.

Glenn said that Americans need to remember great individuals who succeeded despite the personal challenges they faced. He recalled the story of Duncan Hines, whose mother died at a young age and whose lawyer father sent him to spend most of his childhood with his grandmother. It was with his grandmother that he learned to appreciate good cooking, and as an adult he travelled the country with his wife compiling lists of good places to eat.

"Well the list that he and (his wife) Florence had put together had become so popular and it was passed around so much, and they became inundated. And that's when they realized that nobody had compiled a list of places to eat in America. In 1936 he wrote a book called the " The Adventures in Good Eating". He wrote about all sorts of places including one in Kentucky a little coffee half a mile from Corbin. You could get fried chicken, potatoes, biscuits, vegetables, a drink. All that for a buck tops," Glenn explained.

That restaurant near Corbin, KY turned out to be the very first Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Hines's review was one factor in Col. Sanders's deciding to franchise the restaurant.

"In 1952 he introduced his own bread to the world. A year later he sold the rights to this bread. He made a fortune. And then he licensed his name to other food products because the country had grown to trust the man with the name that symbolized good food," Glenn continued.

"He was renowned food critic and author. He found a niche in America, a need that wasn't being fulfilled and he filled it. And in doing so, in finding that on his own he built something. He became wealthy through his own hard work and his dedication, and in his ingenuity."

"And we don't know him anymore, we just know Duncan Hines cake mix. In just a few days we're going to decide if Duncan Hines didn't build his cake mix, who did? Was it the government?"

"Soon we decide."

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.
