How you can help with the South Carolina flooding disaster

On radio Monday, Glenn gave an update on the historic flooding in South Carolina and shared ways to help. Kelly Golden, the morning show host on affiliate 94.3 WSC in Charleston, South Carolina, joined Glenn to give him the details of the "1,000-year flood."

"Charleston is the home of that horrific shooting that happened earlier this year," Glenn said. "Now there's another tragedy unfolding there. This one from natural causes."

Golden described more of what she and other residents are seeing.

"It's unprecedented" Golden said. "I remember walking out of my house in Somerville, not far from the city center, and it looked like a bomb had gone off. And now, it's just - when it comes to rising waters and damage and all of this is still happening, Glenn, as we're still trying to wrap our arms around this."

The flooding has claimed several lives and helicopter rescues have been ongoing. So how can you help?

Golden told Glenn she has been asking people to make a $10 donation to American Red Cross Disaster Relieve by simply texting "REDCROSS" to 90999.

"The Red Cross has boots on the ground with us, helping us from here until however long it takes," Golden said. "You can text REDCROSS to 90999. And just when you do, that's a $10 donation to help us get things back together."

GLENN: When it rains on a community, it pours. That's the saying. And, boy, have they seen it in this community.

Kelly Golden is the morning show host on our affiliate 94.3 WSC in Charleston, South Carolina.

Charleston is the -- is the home of that horrific shooting that happened earlier this year. Now there's another tragedy unfolding there. This one from natural causes. It's called the Low Country, this area, and it's because obviously it's low. And that can cause real problems if there's ever any flooding. And they're now experiencing 1,000-year flood. And the governor says that it -- it's not over yet. Welcome to the program, Kelly Golden. How are you?

KELLY: Man, meeting like this, Glenn.

GLENN: I know. You guys have had a really rough year.

KELLY: Yeah.

GLENN: Tell me what's going on now.

KELLY: It's incredible. Well, we, of course, have the National Guard mobilized statewide. It's unprecedented. As the governor said, it's a 1,000-year flood. This is something that folks, even living here through Hugo, 27 years ago, which was a category ballooning off our coast, five storm, came down to a three upon impact, but was one of the biggest things that folks can remember in their lifetime around here.

And I remember walking out of my house in Somerville, not far from the city center, and it looked like a bomb had gone off. And now, it's just -- when it comes to rising waters and damage and all of this is still happening, Glenn, as we're still trying to wrap our arms around this. But it's stuff unprecedented that we haven't ever seen before. Where the little stream or ditch on the side of the house had now turned into in all seriousness, a raging river that has overtaken entire neighborhoods.

GLENN: Like downtown Charleston, like we were. Is that affected? How much of that area is affected?

KELLY: The entire state practically, Glenn, is affected. I mean, there has been 30 inches of rain that has fallen from downtown Charleston where many folks, you know, know about the Emanuel nine. That is literally being closed off to anyone but residents, including our barrier islands for the last two days.

GLENN: Wow.

KELLY: We have -- think of 30 inches of rain. That sounds insane because it is. And that has fallen, as you said, on the Low Country. And unfortunately, that amount of rain went from the low country on Saturday night, straight up the heart of our state to sit on our capitol in Columbia in the middle of our state. And devastated and unfortunately killed people there. We know at least five people are dead because of these floodwaters. And that includes Department of Transportation workers. First responders who are trying to get out and help people who shouldn't be out in the first place. I mean, we're still under a state of emergency at this point.

GLENN: How can we help, Kelly?

KELLY: Well, we are asking folks because we understand that people love and want to give and care, and that is so appreciated, to text -- it's a 10-dollar donation, to Red Cross. You can text Red Cross to 90999. The Red Cross has boots on the ground with us, helping us from here until however long it takes. I'm sure you'll put that up on your website. But you can text Red Cross to 90999. And just when you do, that's a 10-dollar donation to help us get things back together.

At this point, we still have people performing swift water rescues, literally by helicopter. There's a young water who just got pulled off of her roof Katrina-style into a basket, clutching her newborn baby. I mean, the situation really is still, you know, no pun intended, fluid. The water that I mentioned that went from the Low Country up to the upper part of our state is going to unfortunately, Glenn, flow back down. And by Thursday, we're talking about record river swells.

GLENN: How much warning did you guys have?

KELLY: We have been talking about this at least on our news talk station here at 94.3 WUSC for the better part of last week. Folks from the -- you know, emergency operation folks. We knew this was coming. Just didn't know how bad it would be. And for how long. I mean, we just, unfortunately, got stuck in a sandwich of a situation that left a soaker on top of us for almost 36 hours, which is just unreal.

GLENN: So this is not an overstatement to say this is South Carolina's Katrina.

KELLY: Yes. Absolutely. You know, to see businesses washed -- you know, literally wash away during live broadcast, you know, with news reporters. To see, you know, businesses gutted. There was one restaurant, the water was flowing almost 20 feet just straight through the restaurant. It took all of -- you know, out of the restaurant, all the chairs, tables. You see the huge, you know, industrial refrigerators floating by and at a massive rate. I mean, just dangerous situations happening -- breaking out all over our state. I mean, 30 inches of water is literally pushing coffins out of the ground in Ridgeville, not far from the city center in Charleston.

GLENN: Where are people being housed?

KELLY: Believe it or not, after doing the rounds of the emergency operation centers throughout the morning here, not that many people -- even though they have 5 feet of water in their homes -- are in shelters. We have a couple of hundred just in the Tri county. Big different story if you look statewide. But I can just speak for my area. A lot of people are really helping each other out. As we do, Glenn. You know in times like this, we -- this is where we do show our true love for one another. Neighbor's neighbor.

GLENN: Kelly, thank you so much. And, again, if you want to help the Red Cross is on the scene. And we encourage you. And I'm sure that Mercury One is going to be involving themselves as well. Thank you very much, Kelly. I appreciate it.

KELLY: Glenn, thank you.

GLENN: God bless. That area is being prepared for something. I mean, they're -- they are -- they're being stripped down to nothing. And being prepared for -- for a leadership role in something, I think. Because they have proven themselves to be remarkable people. The kind of place that you want to live in, after we saw what happened with the shooting and now this. These are the kind of people you want to be around.

PAT: Yeah. The way they've handled everything is just really remarkable. You can text -- she said text Red Cross, right? To 90999.

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.
