Barbara Bush, a lady until the end

The Lord called Barbara Bush home last night. She was 92 years young. The country truly has lost an American icon. She was the matriarch of the most successful American political dynasty in modern history. She was the helm of the entire Bush family ship. I want to take just a few minutes to celebrate Mrs. Bush and her amazing life.

Barbara Pierce was born in Manhattan in 1925. When she was 16, she met the man she’d one day spend the rest of her life with. George H.W. Bush was her first kiss, and they began their adventure together in 1945. They married while George was on leave during World War II. This past January, Barbara and George celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary. That makes them the longest married couple in US presidential history.

After the war, the Bush's moved around a lot. TWENTY-NINE TIMES to be exact. They eventually settled in Texas, and it was there that tragedy first tested the Bush family. Their daughter, Robin, died of Leukemia in 1953. She was only three years old. Barbara Bush said, “I was combing her hair and holding her hand. I saw that little body, I saw her spirit go.”

Barbara and George persevered. In the end, they proudly boasted six children, 14 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. They were successful in everything they did. First, the Texas oil business, and then politics. Barbara would become the Second Lady from 1981 to 1989, First Lady from 1989 to 1993 and the mother to the president from 2001 to 2009.

In the end, I’m sure she saw her family as her greatest achievement.

For many Gen X’ers, Barbara Bush was the FIRST First Lady they remember. Her look was iconic. Everyone remembers the white hair and pearls. Barbara said her hair was never colored due to her intense love of the outdoors and swimming. She was always outside enjoying nature. Barbara flashed her granddaughter, Jenna, a sly grin and told her that her signature pearls were “to cover the wrinkles, which they no longer do. You can’t wear pearls all over your face.”

Barbara’s crusade over the years has been universal literacy, and she founded the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. She holds honorary degrees from five different universities.

But in the end, I’m sure she saw her family as her greatest achievement. To quote Barbara one more time, “I’ve been the luckiest woman in the world, truthfully, and I know it.”

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.
