Does Bloomberg think he’s God?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg may have been knocked off his high horse earlier this week when a New York judge overturned his soda ban, but that hasn’t stopped the outspoken Bloomberg from vowing to continue his crusade to rule people’s lives. Following the judge’s ruling, Bloomberg said:

BLOOMBERG: This wasn't a setback for me. This is a setback for the people who're dying. In case you hadn't noticed I watch my diet. This is not for me. I want to leave this world a better place for my kids and their kids. And shame on me if I don't.

It is no secret that Glenn does not support Bloomberg or his initiatives because of the lack of freedom and individual responsibility they typically entail. “Does Bloomberg think he’s God,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Here's the thing. Here's what I'm for: maximum liberty, maximum responsibility.”

We have moved away from a culture based in individual rights and responsibilities to one that focuses on the collective. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be held accountable in our choices and decision making. “I'm doing what I'm doing in my life. I have choices in my life. You have choices in your life,” Glenn said. “You want to eat sugar? Here's a five pound bag of sugar. You think that's poison? You stay away from it.”

While Glenn advocates maximum liberty, Bloomberg’s policies are rooted in minimum responsibility for everyone. “It’s my responsibility what happens to me. I want maximum liberty, and maximum responsibility,” Glenn said. “Bloomberg wants minimum responsibility for everyone. Maximum responsibility on his shoulders for my life. Nobody is giving you that responsibility, Mike. You don't have responsibility over my life. You want to make the world a better place, make people more free. Now the only way you can make people more free is to help them educate them.”

The adage, give a man a fish, feed him for the day; teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime, is particularly apropos in this situation. “Teach people. The best way to teach people is through example,” Glenn said. “Bloomberg is just jamming it down your throat… If you still don't take to their nudge then they'll start to slap or shoot.”

The problem, Glenn explained, is that too many people are afraid and, as a result, they accept the overreaches of government. “Don't be afraid,” Glenn said. “I spent most of my life afraid. Don't be afraid. It's okay. It is so freeing when you take responsibility your own self… And if you don't, we're all going to be living in a state where the Bloombergs are going to tell us exactly how much we can eat, exactly when we have to exercise.”

“We don't need [Bloomberg and [his] rules. We want to cut our own path. We want to go our way. We want to follow our own hearts,” Glenn concluded. “Some of us would like to remain free and independent.”

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.
