So Pat went to jail.

When you tune into The Glenn Beck Radio Program, we really hope that you learn something. Politics, science, faith, history - at his core Glenn is a storyteller and a teacher. So what did we learn today? Well, Pat went to jail.

Yes, you read that right.

Let's be honest, if you were to guess which person from the show had done time, you would guess Jeffy. Then if you found out you were wrong, you'd guess Jeffy again and tell me stop messing around. The it's a toss up between Glenn in his drinking days and Stu after local Texas bistro that's run out of veggie burgers.

Never Pat. Never, ever Pat.

But it turns out Pat once lived on the wrong side of the tracks, getting busted for (wait for it)...a parking ticket!

Say it ain't so Pat!

Stu: How many times have you been in prison, Jeffy? Can we start with that?

JEFFY: For what particular crime?

PAT: No, we're just talking in general. Overall. Total number. Jail, prison, combined.

JEFFY: Jail and prison are two different things. Anybody can say jail --

GLENN: Yeah, we've all sat in jail. Right, Jeffy? We've all gone to jail.

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: I actually have. I actually have sat in --

JEFFY: Okay. This is news to us today.

GLENN: This is the second time you've said this, and we've been friends since the '80s, and you've never told me about your jail time.

PAT: Have I not? Really?

GLENN: No, you have not. You're saying this like you've never gone to jail.

PAT: No, I have. I spent a night in jail, in the Salt Lake County jail.

GLENN: I killed a man in Reno just to watch him die.

PAT: It was actually Rexburg, a family of six.

GLENN: Right. Wow. Why were you in jail?

PAT: It was a parking ticket that was unpaid.

GLENN: Okay. What kind of Nazi town was that?

PAT: I know. I know. Right?

They -- I didn't appear when I was supposed to, and then --

JEFFY: So there was a warrant.

PAT: There was a warrant.

GLENN: How old were you?

PAT: Twenty-one, probably. Just married.

GLENN: Did that scare the life out of you?

PAT: Not super responsible apparently at the time.

GLENN: What a surprise that it was some sort of a -- a vehicle violation that Pat spent time in jail over.

PAT: Yeah, it's a shocking surprise.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So I -- you know, wasn't paying much attention to it so I thought, yeah, I'll get around to that. I didn't get around to that. Then there was a bench warrant or whatever. And then I appeared. And the judge was really nasty. And he wasn't going to let it go with a fine. In fact, he gave me a 30-day sentence and suspended 29. I could have spent 30 days in jail for a parking ticket.

JEFFY: First of all, that's just how the man will do you right there. I mean, we've all been in front of judges like that.

PAT: Yeah. So on Mother's Day in like 1981, I'm in jail. And Jackie is home alone.

STU: Mother's Day.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: Home alone without her husband.

STU: Did she -- did you guys have kids?

PAT: She was pregnant at the time. She was pregnant with our first --

STU: Oh.

JEFFY: So she wasn't a mother yet.

GLENN: Boy, she was regretting --

PAT: Oh, yeah, she was like --

GLENN: She's like, is there any way this child is not Pat's?

PAT: Can this be annulled at this point, even though we've conjugated.

GLENN: There's got to be some way this is not Pat's.

STU: I believe on this program, she was very much was a mother at that particular time.

PAT: That's right. Thank you. So I will say to you -- so you're in jail on your wife's first Mother's Day.

PAT: With these assaults. You know, perpetrators. With burglars.

GLENN: What was that like?

PAT: So what are you in for? I killed a man in Rexburg, just to watch him die. No, a parking ticket. They all laughed. But...

JEFFY: Make some friends? Lifelong?

PAT: Fortunately I did not get together with any of them that night.

GLENN: You didn't find any love spots?

PAT: No.

JEFFY: I mean, you're already there.

GLENN: You have a pretty mouth. How frightened were you?

PAT: I was terrified.

GLENN: Did you sleep?

PAT: No. And it was probably pretty -- it was -- twenty-four hours. It was overnight.

GLENN: Like, I got there at 7:00 and the sun came up.

PAT: I can't remember what time I got there. Maybe 6 o'clock in the afternoon. Then I had to spend the night. Then I think Jackie could pick me up at 9 o'clock the next morning or something.

GLENN: Did you get a chance to take the cup and ring it across the bars? I've always wanted to do that from the other side of the bars.

STU: So that means Glenn, you're signifying you've never been to jail?

GLENN: We're talking about Pat right now.

STU: Wait. You've been to jail too?

GLENN: We're talking to Pat right now. We're talking about Pat and his --

JEFFY: Every jail cell doesn't have a cup, so it could have been possible that you went to jail and didn't have a cup.

GLENN: I'm just saying that we have one revelation here that we have not finished exploring. Let's concentrate on Pat.

PAT: No, I think we've explored it in its entirety.

GLENN: Oh, golly. We're all out of time. We're all out of time.

PAT: Now it's time to shift the exploration. Wow. So there is something you haven't come clean on?

GLENN: There may be some things that I've misremembered.

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.
