Greed, excess, manipulation, robbery: this budget bill represents the worst of Washington DC

TWO THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND THIRTY-TWO PAGES... that’s how long the newest budget bill is.

A small select group of lawmakers wrote this monstrosity and delivered it to the rest of Congress last night. But no worries! I’m sure your Congressman has PLENTY of time to read over this thing and make sure all your needs are met. There’s NO WAY this thing gets rushed through. Oh, wait... THEY’RE VOTING ON IT TOMORROW.

Two thousand, two hundred and thirty-two pages. Let’s put that into perspective for just a second. Expecting someone to read this bill before they vote on it tomorrow would be like asking them to read War and Peace, not once, BUT TWICE. War and Peace is only 1,400 pages. Not even a speed reader could get that done.

The truth is obvious. Most of Congress won’t even attempt to read this, but they’ll be guilted into voting for it anyway because... “THE GOVERNMENT MAY SHUT DOWN IF WE DON’T!!!”

$1.3 trillion of YOUR MONEY is at stake here. Yeah but, we’re dealing with a lot of complicated things this time, right? The border wall, DACA... If you were hoping to hear about either of those you’re going to be severely disappointed.

Those two issues, which held up the budget agreement last time, are nowhere to be found in this two thousand plus page mega-bill. Wow, it’s almost like neither side actually really cares about either issue. Almost like it’s just one big game.

So what IS getting funded? Well... Planned Parenthood is still getting money from OUR pockets. A half a billion dollar project to build a tunnel under the Hudson River is in there. I’m sure that doesn’t benefit New York Senator Chuck Schumer at all...

This isn’t governing.

The amount of wasteful spending is out of control. We’ve cut taxes, so we SHOULD be cutting back spending, but Washington is raising the national debt at a historic rate. In the last six months, the national debt has grown by ONE TRILLION DOLLARS. Has the debt grown that quickly before? Oh sure, back in 2009 during the GREAT RECESSION.

We’re now looking at $21 trillion in total debt, and there is NO sign that ANYONE in Washington cares to do anything about it. To the contrary, they just hid even more wasteful spending into a two thousand two hundred and thirty two page bill that THEY KNOW everyone won’t have time to read. This budget bill represents the worst Washington DC stands for: greed, excess, manipulation and outright robbery.

This isn’t governing. Who in Washington will take a stand and stop this?

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.
