How does conservative Scott Walker win over and over in one of the most progressive states?

Glenn’s been waiting to talk to Scott Walker for weeks now. The Wisconsin Governor routinely comes out near the top of our audience poll of prospective GOP nominees. But who is he? What does he believe? What are his policies? And does he have any intention of running? Glenn spoke with Scott Walker on Monday's radio show to get some of these answers.

Despite Wisconsin being the cradle of progressivism, Walker has been able to make a lot of accomplishments in the advancement of small government.

"Madison, Wisconsin, which is headed to the left of Pravda, for many out there, it is the home of progressive movement. Collective bargaining was started there," Walker said. "Who would have thought that in that city, in the state of Wisconsin, that hasn't had a Republican for president since 1984, we would be able to take on, four years ago, the Public Employee Union. And not only win that battle, win the recalls against a whole bunch of state senators. Win a recall against me and the lieutenant governor in the state. But now Wisconsin when it comes to public employee unions, we have no seniority or tenure. We can hire and fire based on merit. We can pay based on performance. We're the 25th state in the nation that have a right to work. We have photo ID requirements for voting. We deported Planned Parenthood and the pro-life legislation."

"We cut taxes by $2 billion. Property taxes were lower today than they were four years ago. Who would have thought that would happen? But we said shortly after the 2010 election, we had to go big and we had to go bold. It was put-up-or-shut-up time. And even in Madison, Wisconsin, we were able to get that done."

"What is the secret?" Glenn asked.

"The interesting thing is, to win the center, you don't have to move to the center of the issues, you have to lead. You have to clearly spell out what you're going to do. Tell the people what you'll do, and then do it. And a lot of times in politics, people think to win the middle, to win independents, sort of, independents are squishy or moderate. No, most independents have just been burned many times before. They're not willing to commit to a party because they're frustrated with being told one thing and then people doing another. If you lead, you don't have to be with an independent on every single issue. You just have to look them in the eye and tell them exactly what you'll do. Sometimes that means telling them something that they don't necessarily agree with. But they'll know on all the other issues, that you'll stand firm, when they do care about them."

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.
