Still Don't Understand Why 'TPP' Sucks? Follow Glenn to the Chalkboard.

"You have to pass it to find out what's in it."

That unconstitutional phrase infamously made during Obama's first term gave us the crushing burden of Obamacare. And if we've learned one thing, it's that history repeats itself. This time around, it's the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a new global regulatory structure better known as TPP that will transfer power from individual Americans and Congress to an unelected, international bureaucratic committee.

If you don't know what TPP is, you're not alone. It's been shrouded in secrecy and fast-tracked by Congress and the Obama Administration. On Wednesday, Glenn took to the chalkboard to explain why it's critically important to Americans.

"You might have noticed anti-TPP protesters waving signs and causing all kinds of commotion during the DNC," Glenn said. "There's both government and grassroots movements on each side here --- one side fiercely lobbying to see the TPP through, while the other is fighting just as fiercely to see it thrown out. The rest of us are kinda caught in the middle trying to figure what the heck is going on."

So where do we turn, to a senator or a congressman maybe? Sure, if they'd show up.

"For such a volcanic subject, you'd think legislatures would be chomping at the bit to go on the record to tell us what this thing's all about. My staff has been working on this for weeks, and we can't get a single government official to comment on it," Glenn said in dismay.

If this deal is what they purport it to be, why not come on the record and defend it?

"It's not an easy subject to talk about, mostly because it's been shrouded in secrecy. The very fact that they chose to hide the details from the public should have been enough to set off a few warning lights. Even more so that the details of the trade agreement weren't released at the same time the president was requesting Trade Pact Authority, or TPA," Glenn said. "Maybe it's me, but this just seems laughable. But guess what, Congress passed the bill and handed Obama the authority without most of them even reading the details of the TPP," Glenn said.

"Apparently, there were some very influential people and companies in high places that wanted to give the president the power to get this thing signed and delivered. Nearly 200 million in contributions was paid out to ensure the deal got done."

As Speaker of the House, it's only logical that John Boehner raked in the biggest windfall, but here are the top four most expensive 'Yes' votes:

• John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million

• Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million

• Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million

• Pat Tiberi (R-OH) received $1.6 million

More of a visual learner? You're in luck. Glenn took to the chalkboard to illustrate the flow of money --- and how, once again, Americans are left in the dust.

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.
