WATCH: Dem Congressman's scathing critique of Obama's $100 million trip

Democratic Congressman John Barrow (D-GA) made headlines over the weekend for his scathing critique of President Obama’s upcoming trip to Africa. The trip carries a whopping price tag of $100 million!

“Now, while you're all fired up… let's go now to what Yahoo is calling his triumphant return to his homeland, the president's trip to Africa,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Here's a Georgia Democrat, John Barrow, criticizing this $100 million trip.”

BARROW: Madam speaker, very soon thousands of folks in my district in Georgia and even more across the state will be furloughed as a result of the budget sequester. Studies have shown that the sequester will cost the Georgia economy approximately $107 million. Meanwhile reports circulated this week that President Obama's upcoming trip to Africa will cost the taxpayers nearly $100 million. Madam speaker, no one here questions the need for security for our commander‑in‑chief, but we do question the need for such expensive trips when so many folks across the country are being forced to cut back because Congress can't get its act together. A trip of this magnitude isn't unusual, but these are hard times. $100 million could be better used to keep folks on the job. I urge the president and everyone at the federal level to lead by example and not take the fact that Congress can't get its act together and rub that in the faces of hard working Americans. With that I yield back.

“Here's the interesting thing,” Glenn said. “You can take this and you can just say, what do you say we don't do $50 million conventions for the IRS and we save the $50 million they've just sent to ten different households as refund checks? There's $100 million there. There's $100 million there.”

“Now, I know that's nickel‑and‑dime to the, you know, to the president. He says that that's no big deal. I'm sorry, it is a big deal,” he continued. “$100 million, how many people are working their brains out that you had to take money from their check? How many of us, how many of us have given our blood, sweat and tears to make up just that $100 million? You don't find $100 million on the street corner. How many of us have worked our whole year and worked the first, what, three or four months of that year to send you money in Washington to have you abuse it like that? It's offensive and it's immoral.”

Stu was quick to point out that while he agreed with Rep. Barrow’s criticism of the trip’s price tag, his decision to tie it into the sequester is pretty unconvincing. “His tie‑in to the sequester, his point there makes it so obvious that the sequester is a BS argument,” Stu said. “If they are making trips for $100 million, we have $100 million right there from the IRS, how many more programs? You're telling me you can't cut 1 or 2% off of that budget. It's insulting to say that.”

“It’s so offensive. And when will the American people be outraged,” Glenn asked. “They have taken your money. And they are growing the size of this government that is so inept and so out of control that this is the way they're spending your money.”

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.
