Could the Pope have ended abortion yesterday?

After hearing the speech Pope Francis delivered to Congress on Thursday, Glenn was a little disappointed to say the least. The Pope called for peace and environmental justice, but completely missed a huge opportunity to end abortion in America, Glenn told radio listeners Friday morning.

The Pope could have said, "stop the abomination today," Glenn said. "That opportunity would have been historic."

GLENN: The Pope could have ended abortion in America yesterday. He could have stood in the well of the Senate and said, "I'm sorry. I know this is not my place. I'm not here to talk to you about politics. I'm here to talk to you about life, and you have the opportunity right now to end abortion."

These Catholics, these people who have been following the doctrine of our church for a long time, have been leading the way and have been waiting for an opportunity and have been waiting and praying, "Dear Lord, help us stop abortion right now!" And the Pope could have said, "And I am an answer to that prayer. I look at you in your eyes right now and tell you, stop the abomination of abortion today." That opportunity would have been historic.

That is an opportunity that -- that Mother Teresa would have taken. In fact, Mother Teresa did take when she was at a prayer breakfast and Bill Clinton was sitting right there. And she said this.

MOTHER TERESA: And I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion. Because Jesus said, "If you receive a little child, you receive me." So every abortion is the denial of receiving Jesus, is the neglect of receiving Jesus.

PAT: Wow. They go on to clap for quite a while at that prayer breakfast. And you know who is sitting one seat away from her and is not clapping, is Bill Clinton. President Bill Clinton.

GLENN: Yesterday, the Pope should have gotten up as the vicar of Christ and say, "Christ demands that we take care of the most innocent among us, the most helpless among us." This isn't asking him to do something that is not in his trait, is not in his purview. This is not asking him to do anything political. This is asking him to be the vicar of Christ. That's what he was introduced as. That's his title. Missed opportunity.

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.
