Who Killed DNC Staffer Seth Rich? Does the Truth Even Matter?

In a recent interview, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange made a claim that caught everyone's attention, including Glenn's.

"That is quite a charge to make in the United States of America. But that is exactly the charge that Julian Assange has made from WikiLeaks," Glenn said Wednesday on his radio program.

He wondered aloud if the United States might have crossed the line, and Assange's claim that it wasn't an attempted robbery that killed DNC staffer Seth Rich, but something much more sinister.

"We are now a country that everybody in politics, everybody with power knows, the truth doesn't matter anymore. You can get away with absolutely anything, and no one cares," Glenn said.

When the heads of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State can perjure themselves in front of Congress and no one cares or does anything about it, it sends a clear message. When secrets are leaked and private servers are kept, when we leave people behind to die in Libya and lie about it, it sends a clear message.

"You're teaching people that nobody cares. The truth doesn't matter. You can get away with anything. Well, when you think you can get away with anything, you start to open up your options of those anythings that you can do. This is what happens in a country run by oligarchs. This is what happens when somebody has enough power and enough money --- if somebody gets into their way, you kill them," Glenn said.

Assange backtracked on the accusation, but the damage was done.

"He's never actually said he was a source. So, you know, do you believe Julian Assange?" Glenn asked.

Protecting confidential sources was an honored tradition among investigative journalists, protected by the First Amendment, but standards have changed.

"It is different now. I am convinced, after talking to people in the government and talking through others to sources, I am absolutely convinced that people feel this way. That if I say anything, you know, it used to be, I'll lose my job," Glenn said. "But that's the good part of it. Have we crossed the line where our government or our politicians or political institutions now feel comfortable enough to where they will kill you? Now, that sounds crazy. But are we not moving towards Russia?"

Glenn then told a story about five whistle blowers he'd interviewed.

"Do you remember the five that sat on our couch, that blew the whistle during the Bush administration? One of them had the federal government come into their shower. They were in the shower. Broke into their house, walked right into their bathroom, and pointed a gun to the guy's head while he was in the shower," Glenn said.

And what is America doing?

"We're arguing over nonsense," Glenn said.

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.
