WATCH: Rand Paul talks privacy, third parties, and the future of American politics

Last week, Glenn sat down with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for an in-depth interview about some of the biggest issues facing America today. The interview aired on Thursday's Glenn Beck Program, and Sen. Paul candidly explained why all Americans should fear the erosion of the Fourth Amendment and what he believes to be the future of American politics.

Earlier this week, Sen. Paul filed a historic class action lawsuit against the Obama Administration over the National Security Agency’s surveillance practices. While conservatives often fight tooth-and-nail for the Constitutional rights outlined in, say, the Second Amendment, they forget the overlapping rights afforded by the amendments.

"We need to understand there are other amendments, and they are just as important," he said. "You can have the right to own a gun and bear a gun, but if the government has the right to come into your house without a warrant and take that gun… You need the Fourth Amendment to tell the government, 'You can not come in my house unless you talk to a judge.' We separated the police power from the judiciary power."

The Fourth Amendment says:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated; and no Warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

"What part of this doesn't the government understand," Glenn asked.

While the issues Sen. Paul is fighting for are vitally important to the future freedoms of American citizens, Glenn questioned how we can make people care.

"You are having a really good intellectual argument, but most people don't care. How do you change things when the President can look people in the eye and say, 'You have your doctor; you can keep your doctor,'" Glenn asked. "He knew that was a lie when he said it, and nobody cares!"

"I would disagree that nobody cares," Sen. Paul responded. "I would say that if you want to get your message out and you want to win elections, you have to take your message to people in a way they can understand it."

That includes speaking to a younger voting demographic in terms they can relate to - something his father, former congressman Ron Paul (R-TX), did very well. Ron Paul ran for president as a third party candidate and made conservative ideals of small government and personal responsibility popular among a younger generation of voters that typically do not find the Republican Party's message appealing. Sen. Paul, however, is not so sure a third party is best way to affect change in the current political landscape.

So what does the future hold for Sen. Paul? For starters, he wants to see the Republican Party move in a newer, more inclusive direction. Sen. Paul watched the 'establishment GOP' tell Ronald Reagan to "sit down and shut up" in the primary against President Gerald Ford in 1976, but he also watched the conservative element of the party stand up for their principles. Ultimately, the party came together and rallied around Reagan. There is a very real opportunity for that to happen again, but the Republican Party needs to be willing to duke it out and emerge better and stronger.

"There is a struggle going on within the Republican Party… I am proud that there is a struggle, and I will struggle to make the Republican Party a different party, a bigger party, a more diverse party, and a party that can win national elections again," Sen. Paul said. "It is the ideas of liberty and presenting them to everyone, not just white folks with ties on."

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.
