'His humility is obvious': Bitcoin expert reflects on experience with Glenn and TheBlaze

After returning from a trip to Silicon Valley last month, Glenn had a newfound interest in Bitcoin - though he admittedly understood very little about the currency/payment system. On Tuesday's Glenn Beck Program, Glenn welcomed three Bitcoin 'experts' to the program to discuss the theory behind Bitcoin, its viability, and its future. One of those guests, Jeffrey Tucker of Liberty.me, penned an article reflecting on his experience with Glenn and TheBlaze, in which he commended Glenn's "humility, openness, and willingness to learn."

"We think we know but then, it turns out, we don’t know. That’s the main lesson I’ve gained from watching the extraordinary rise of Bitcoin… But, to understand requires some humility," Tucker writes. "This is why I was thrilled to be invited to be on the Glenn Beck show, along with my colleagues Elizabeth Ploshay and Kristov Atlas… It was not a debate. It was not contentious. It was about learning. He asked questions and together we worked through some of the biggest issues in the cryptocurrency space."

While Tucker admits he has not followed Glenn closely, he palpably sensed Glenn's understanding "that we are on the verge of something big in history, something that will end in a terrible authoritarianism or in a new manner of freedom." Furthermore, fi we are to achieve that freedom, "it will not likely come from top-down reform."

Tucker praised TheBlaze's "large, modern, eccentric, super techy" headquarters that he described as "teeming with talented young people working in every aspect of production." He also praised Glenn for his "humility" both on and off camera.

"I would like to add something about Glenn too. I’ve known many people in his position who are not nearly as appealing in person as they are on camera… I did not get this impression from Beck at all. His humility is obvious off camera," he writes. "He could not have been more humble, self effacing, and down-to-earth… He runs an amazing media empire at this point. And yet he has maintained his personal authenticity and intellectual curiosity. That is very much to his credit, and I say that with full awareness of many disagreements we might otherwise have on many issues. I just can’t help but admire someone like this."

Ultimately, Tucker encouraged readers to embrace the rapidness of the digital age by being opening to learning and open to adapting.

"In some important ways, Beck has furthered the discussion of Bitcoin. He opened his mind to the topic and went exploring," he concludes. "This is what we all should do, not just on this topic but all a huge range of topics that are confronting us in this digital age. There are many things we do not understand but can, provided we have a teachable spirit."

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.
