Never Thought I'd Say This: Take Phil Donahue's Advice (Oh, and Call Me on Wednesday)

I never thought I would say this but the MSM should take Phil Donahue's advice: Listen to the people who are angry and voted for President Trump.

Phil Donahue believes the press should pay more attention to "angry" Trump voters, but also to those who didn't bother voting. "Apathy is killing us," Donahue said, urging more on-the-ground, outside-of-DC reporting. "You're going to get more truth the lower you go."

I agree, if no one listens to you or anyone who feels unheard and squeezed at both ends, things will never get better. I need to listen as well.

Wednesday on Radio, I Will Take Your Calls

I want to know how your life has been going over the last 10-plus years:

• What are the stresses in your life, where do you feel the downward pressure?

• When was the last time you had a raise, what is happening with your health insurance?

• What is your number one concern? Is there anything you have faith in anymore?

• How has your life changed, your school, relationships, neighborhood and church?

• How can I help make your life easier?

• What can TheBlaze do?

• What can we help you understand? (you should know we are trying to figure it out too).

• There are those in media and journalism that care and actually believe in you and that there is eternal truth. How can they help you?

• What can people do to restore your faith in reporting? The system, your neighbors? Is it too late?

• Are we in the early stages of wide spread civil unrest or war?

• Do you want to stop it? Are you willing to do what those who followed Ghandi, Lincoln, Bonhoeffer, Jesus and King did? Stand fast in the truth but never punch back? Or is it too late?

• Have you lost friends or family? Would you like to make up or is it good riddance?

• Are you tired of the division and name calling? Could you live as we once did, together, with respect for differences? (I am asking about you- not what others will or will not do).

• It feels good to win and to pinch back. We all get a hit of dopamine when we do or see someone else punch. Especially when we feel it was deserved or way over due. Can we break this "addiction"?

• Do you want to?

• If you could tell the media or "the other side" one thing, that you really feel if they could understand things might change, what would it be?

I would love to hear from you on the phone Wednesday, beginning at 9AM EST. Call me at 888.727.2325. I am not looking for political discussions, I want to know about you, your feelings and life.

You can also post a reply message on Facebook. If you feel you need to vent at me, Trump or Hillary, I do understand, but unless it is constructive could you post elsewhere for the time being? Many of us really do want to help and move the whole country forward.

If you are a listener and/or truly want to make a positive difference please let me and the rest of the country hear your voice.

I have always said that "this audience will be remembered as the one that backed us up from the cliff and saved the republic." I still believe that, in fact stronger than ever before. "Blessed be the peacemaker," but it is a choice.

The world is descending into hatred and madness. There is not truth nor anyone or anything to believe in. Have you made your choice yet? Is there anything that could change your mind?

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.
