Biggest moment from last night's debate

CNN hosted the final GOP debate of 2015 in Las Vegas Tuesday night. Being the first debate since the Paris and San Bernardino terror attacks, foreign policy and national security issues dominated much of the conversation.

On radio Wednesday, Glenn asked his co-hosts what moment in the debate stood out the most to them. They all agreed it was when, as Pat put it, "Trump didn't know what the triad was."

So what happened exactly?

CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer asked Donald Trump what his priority would be among our aging nuclear triad (i.e. the three components of America's nuclear arsenal: strategic bombers, intercontinental ballistic missiles and submarine-launched missiles).

Trump's response indicated his complete ignorance of what the nuclear triad even was.

"Well, first of all," Trump said. "I think we need somebody absolutely that we can trust who is totally responsible who really knows what he or she is doing, that is so powerful and so important."

Glenn expressed his amazement at the absurdity of Trump's statement.

"What is that? That would be you, that would be the president of the United States," Glenn said.

Trump went on to talk about nuclear proliferation being "the biggest problem in this world today," to which Glenn said, "I think he's bluffing at this point. He's just trying to throw things out."

That wasn't the end of Trump's blundering. As Blitzer began changing gears to allow Marco Rubio to answer the same question, Trump made one final statement that fell completely flat.

"I think for me, nuclear is just --- the power, the devastation is very important to me," Trump said.

When Rubio was given a chance to reply, he started by explaining what the triad was.

"Maybe a lot of people haven't heard that terminology before," Rubio said.

Glenn called Rubio's response "expertly done."

"He immediately let everybody in the room know Donald Trump had no idea --- a pretty presidential trait is completely lost here and he doesn't know this information --- without saying it," Glenn said.

Glenn mused what might have happened had Rubio gone at Trump more openly rather than simply taking the "gentle win" at that moment.

"I think it would have been the moments of the night between them," Glenn said. "It would have been a massive win."

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.
