This California candidate lived through the Soviet Union...and wants to stop it from happening here

With primary season well underway, Glenn has been talking about the importance of supporting strong candidates around the country in whatever way you can. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to Igor Birman, who is running for Congress in California’s 7th Congressional District, ahead of Tuesday’s primary.

Glenn has spoke to Birman on both radio and television several times, and Birman has spoken candidly about his family’s plight from the Soviet Union. His parents fled the Soviet Union with little money or prospects, and yet they flourished in the United States.

“I think you are one of these guys that we would really love to have in the House and the Senate because you lived in the Soviet Union,” Glenn said. “You remember [what it was like].”

“I definitely know what it's like,” Birman responded. “I'm taking on a former member of Congress, a very liberal Republican, and we can't take anything for granted. So I need a lot of help to get across the finish line next week.”

Birman explained that his campaign has received a tremendous groundswell of support and because of the setup of the California primary system, he is cautiously optimistic about his chances next week.

“It's one of the strange California deals where the top two will advance in to November – regardless of the party. But we're in pretty good shape to advance,” Birman said. “We're looking pretty good, very excited about where we are. We've moved from a very weak position. Back when I announced nine months ago, very few people thought we could succeed. But we have this avalanche of young people descend on us. You know, they've knocked on almost 10,000 doors. They've had made almost 200,000 phone calls, communicating principles of freedom, stating our positions in bold colors, and here we are.”

As Glenn explained, Birman is a guy who really understands the dangers of the path we are currently on and wants to ensure freedom survives.

“He's a guy who's seen the other side of this,” Pat said.

“He remembers it,” Glenn concluded. “He remembers the night before he came to the United States when he secret police, the KGB, came in and tore apart his family's house. And when they left, and everything was in a shambles, he remembers his mother holding his younger brother and he was crying. His mother said to him, ‘Don't worry. We're going to America where this will never happen again.’”

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.
