Glenn Beck: Battle of the Headlines

GLENN: Well, it is Monday, a new, fresh start. I saw a poll that shows that Barack Obama is winning, what is it, Dan, 86%?

STU: Yeah, a mere 86% of the vote in Europe and McCain has a whopping 6%. 8% are really thinking it over, though.

GLENN: Now, I would, I would think that with 86% of Europe saying Barack Obama is my guy, there might be a headline somewhere that we could find saying, if Europe thinks he's that great, maybe we should run in the other direction.

We go to Stu for a little pregame analysis on the Battle of the Headlines today.

STU: That's right, Glenn. I mean, you said it correctly when you said you figure if Germany really likes him, maybe that would be something to point out that it's not particularly a good thing. They haven't exactly elected the best people in the past.

GLENN: You're saying that Germany has a bad voting record.

STU: Some would say that they've made an occasional error in judgment.

GLENN: I don't know what you could possibly be talking about, but let's go right to the Battle of the Headlines. Here comes headline number one for John McCain: China criticizes McCain, Dalai Lama meeting. Headline number two for John McCain. Chuck Hagel says John McCain is treading on very thin ground. John McCain reverses himself on affirmative action. And, what a surprise, had to have one, angry McCain needs to make way for old optimism.

We go to the half now because I'm a little torn on this, Stu. Your analysis.

STU: Yeah, very interesting there, Glenn. The first two headlines, China criticizing McCain and Chuck Hagel criticizing McCain, those could very well be taken as positives.

GLENN: I have to ask you. John McCain reverses himself on affirmative action. Was he for it or against it?

STU: You know, I don't know, off the top of my head.

GLENN: I have no idea. He could go either way, and now has.

STU: I'd like to find out.

GLENN: Apparently. All right. So we go into the second half. Here's headline number one for Barack Obama. Obama admits drop in Iraqi violence. Was more -- no, there's -- he admits a drop in Iraqi violence was more than he had anticipated. Obama declares foreign trip a success. That's from MSNBC. In Berlin hope for the fall of other walls. I don't even know what that one means. Barack Obama, president of Europe.

VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top, glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee, what a frickin' surprise.

GLENN: All right. So you've checked into the Barack Obama -- or the John McCain on affirmative action. He used to be for it and now he's against it. Well, that's great. We've got these guys -- this is like fish. I went fishing with my son this week even. It was like, they're just flopping around on the side. Bang them in the head with a hammer, I'm telling you. They will stop flopping around for a while. For the love of Pete. And I love this one: Berlin, hope for the fall of other walls. It wasn't hope that brought the Berlin wall down. And it wasn't sunshine and lollipops that put it up. I mean, it's just -- aye-yi-yi.

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.
