Here's the best business advice that Glenn can offer

Question: When did you know in business that you were doing the right thing?

Glenn: Never. Here’s the thing, I think, and feel free to correct me if anybody else has a better answer than this, because I really am bluffing. The only time I’ve ever known anything…well, I shouldn’t say this. There’s been about four times in my life that I’ve really, truly known. I was seven, and I heard clear as a bell, “What you do in life at some point will be a turning point. That’s all I heard. I don’t know, I’m seven, I don’t even know what that means.

That actually led, played a big role in my alcoholism, because every time I would think that I’m on the verge of something, somebody else would beat me to it, and I’d be like, “What the…? Why am I always behind?” I’m always behind. It wasn’t until the 90s that I just let go and said I don’t really care. I think that’s probably a childhood little thing, and it took me until about 2005 when I’m on the cover of TIME magazine that I’m like oh my gosh, oh my gosh. I wasn’t trying to do anything anymore. I was trying to find it before. You know what I mean? And so I was screwing it up.

Once I let go, and I’m just like I’m just going to be, I’m just going to do today what I think is right…there’s been about four times in my life where I felt like I’ve had that this you must do, but I never know how to do them, ever. I usually don’t even know exactly what they mean, and it can really screw me up. Beyond that, every time I second-guess myself, I screw it up. Your first thought is usually the right one. The first thought is you know what we should do, we should do this.

Now, things around that might change. We’re working on this amazing thing that we’re hopefully going to announce this summer. We’re going to start a tradition 15 months from now for Fourth of Julys, because I think we need to do Fourth of July right. I’ve tried to do it all over the country. I’ve tried to play, you know, in everybody else’s sandbox. Nobody cares about the traditions of America anymore. It’s all about hot dogs and fireworks and country music bands. That’s not Independence Day. That may be Fourth of July, but it’s not Independence Day.

We came up with this idea, and our first name for it is the Campfire. That sucks. That’s what I think it should be, the Campfire. That’s going to change, but all of the stuff that’s at the heart of it is not going to change, okay? So, you have to have confidence enough in yourself to say you know what, I’m just settled enough that I’m comfortable enough to say I’m good failing with this, I’m good. I’ll fail, but I’m going to do this because it feels right to me, and then just hold on, just hold on, because it’s a scary ride, and every step of the way you’ll question yourself.

I do today. I did this week. Four or five times this week I said you know what, maybe we shouldn’t have done any of this. Maybe we shouldn’t have done any of this. Maybe it’s just me in my head thinking we should. Let it go. Let it go. Wherever you end up is right where you’re supposed to be, and once you say I could lose it all…my kids asked me one time, “Dad, why do you say enjoy it while it lasts?” Well, because in my 20s, I thought it would always go on, and I lost everything. When I didn’t have it anymore, I realized wow, I’m happy without it. It doesn’t matter.

But while you have it, enjoy it, and once you really let go and say I don’t really care, I will live under a bridge because I know I’ll be happy, one way or another I’ll be happy, and it will be exactly where I’m supposed to be, everything works out. It all works out.

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.
