Is the President safe? New revelations on Secret Service screw-up raises red flags

The Washington Post reported new details on the man who jumped the fence and rushed the White House earlier this month. It turns out he made it much further into the building than was originally reported. Omar Gonzalez was able to enter through an unlocked door and get all the way to the East Room before being detained by Secret Service. Couple this with revelations earlier this week regarding shots fired at the White House in 2011, and Glenn was left wondering just how safe the President really is.

"Don't worry, in the East Room, it's only where the president does all his press conferences," Glenn joked. "And that room just has national treasures in it. I wouldn't worry about it. So there's the president. There's the president's family. And, of course, there's national treasures, but I wouldn't worry about it"

Glenn's sarcasm really addressed a fundamental problem regarding presidential security in the modern world. These days, it's easy to smuggle an explosive device in something as small and portable as a backpack. What would have happened if Gonzalez had been carrying more than a knife?

"The other thing that's pretty disturbing is just being continually lied to," Pat said. "On this story, for instance. They told us the guy barely got through the door and they apprehended him."

The Washington Post also reported that the alarm had been muted at the request of the ushers.

"We don't need to get into all the details. We don't need people to know all these details. This is still under investigation. So we don't need to know that," Glenn joked.

"This guy was in the White House, and we didn't shoot him. Amazing," he added.

So what do we do now?

"Our Secret Service, I have to tell you, I'm President of the United States, before I take office, I have a long talk with the new Treasury Secretary and say, 'Look, here's the deal, dude, you and I are going to be doing a lot of things, but you and I are going to need the best Secret Service agents ever. You get this cleaned up because the entire government is at stake.'"

"Our system is at risk here and it seems to me they're having too many cocaine and hooker parties at the Secret Service. I want the best men. I want the most moral men. I want the most decent men. I want men -- and I hate to say this, I want men who are so close to being the best they can be that the spirit will motivate them. That they will -- yes, I am saying it, that they will have and they will obey those crazy hallucinations that religious people sometimes have, I like to call them promptings. They will listen to the spirit and they are worthy of hearing the spirit because we're dealing with the country. We're not just dealing with the first family's life. The President of the United States has no right to put himself in dangerous situations. He has no right to do that. There's way too much at stake. Can you imagine if this president was killed? Can you imagine what it would do to the country right now?"

"Our nation is at stake. The president's life is in danger, and I have been saying this since we were at CNN. Warning, this guy gets in and he's not everything he's promised, everyone will have a reason...By the way, just look it up. If you'll look up who the ones are that take on presidents of the United States in history, it has been radical, revolutionary, communists, leftists, and Palestinian supporters. So don't tell me about the radical right. Could it be? Yes. Could it be a racist? Yes. But odds are it is a radical revolutionary, communist, socialist, Palestinian supporter. Look it up. They are the angriest.""

"Every single time. Look it up. I have. Because I actually care about the president's life. I may not agree with him, but he's the President of the United States of America. His family. Three years ago, they shot at the White House. The Secret Service received phone calls from people saying, 'I see a guy with a gun firing at the White House.' They dismissed it. They found the bullet hole. Now, we find out about this three years later. What the hell is going on? Americans need to pay attention. We need to be on the front lines of making sure this president is safe."

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.
