'How is this happening?' Glenn reacts to Friday's security breach at the White House

On Friday, the White House was temporarily on lockdown after 42-year-old Omar J. Gonzalez of Copperas Cove, Texas jumped the fence and managed to make it inside the North Portico doors of the presidential residence before being apprehended. According to CNN, Gonzalez was carrying a folding knife in his pocket.

On radio this morning, Glenn and Pat questioned what kind of lapse in security would allow someone to get over the fence – let alone inside the White House. But, then again, this is not the first time unauthorized persons have made it past the Secret Service.

“Are the Secret Service understaffed, worn out? Do they have a sense of mission? Are they too tired from making out with hookers? Are they drunk? I don't know,” Glenn said. “But I have been saying this from the time that the White House had a breach of security at that first gala dinner, where people just strolled in that weren't even on the White House guest list… Is it just me?”

The media has chosen to focus on the mental state of Gonzalez and the fact that President Obama was not home at the time of the breach, but Glenn believes that narrative misses the point.

“Please, can we just have a serious conversation with one another,” Glenn asked. “I don't know if anyone notices that [radical Islamists] are talking about flying the black flag of Islam over the White House. I don't think now would be a good time to cut back on security. But, don't worry, he only had a pocket knife, machete, black flag.”

Glenn explained he recently had an intruder make it over the fence at his home, but between his personal security detail and the police, the situation was rectified immediately.

“Last week, somebody jumped the fence of my house… We're pretty well equipped. Let's just say the guy didn't get very far,” Glenn joked. “Now, that's me… If the guy would have touched the doorknob on my house, I certainly wouldn't have said, ‘Guys, did you lock the door?’ My door is always locked… We've put in these things, where I don't have to worry about locking my door.”

Considering the constant security threat the president and first family face, wouldn’t you just assume even more comprehensive security procedures would be in place?

“Can you imagine the president going, ‘Honey, did you lock the door?’ Does the president or the first lady lay in bed in the middle of the night and say, ‘Did you turn on the alarm?’ ‘I heard something. Grab your gun. Go downstairs,’” Glenn said. “The president and the first lady shouldn't have to be saying those things. I say them. You say them. The president and first lady don't say those things… How is this happening?”

Ultimately, Glenn said he has never met anyone – liberal or conservative – who is against the president receiving the best possible protection available, so it is simply unacceptable that the Secret Service cannot seem to get its act together.

“Could I just point out that no time in my life… as a fiscally responsible conservative… have I said, ‘We really need to cut back on the president's security,’” Glenn concluded. “Never in my life have I said or would I say, ‘Hey, the president's on his own here.’ It's the White House, for the love of Pete!”

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.
