GLENN: I was walking to work today, I was walking with a friend of mine and he said to me -- he said, Glenn, I don't think any one of these guys, McCain or Barack Obama, are making any headway on any of this stuff with oil. And I said, well, why do you think that is? Well, because I don't think either one of them has it right yet. No. It's that neither one of them have said anything that they really truly believed in quite some time. Last year everybody was all on the global warming bandwagon. We weren't on the global warming bandwagon. Stu, you been on the global warming bandwagon?

STU: All over, Glenn.

GLENN: Yeah. We were on the global warming bandwagon so much that we had RFK, Jr. calling me a corporate toadie and a shill and, you know, basically just one in a long list of people who should be imprisoned because our viewpoint was criminal. I don't really care. See, what we need is politician that doesn't really care. You don't like him, oh, well, you don't like him. Don't vote for him. That's what we need. Somebody who actually says what they mean and mean what they say. But these politicians, all they do is they say what's politically expedient at the time. Political expediency, that's all there is. That's all that matters to people now. "Well, wait a minute, what do the polls say? What do the people say? Why, you can't say that. You'll offend this special interest group over here." I don't really care. That's what I believe. I mean, how stupid do you have to be?

I'm reading a new book called Petro State. Putin, Power and the New Russia." Just listen to the back cover of this and tell me how much trouble is coming our way if we don't wake up on oil. This is from Marvin Kalb, the Moscow bureau chief, CBS news. This may be Golden's best book and that's saying a lot, focusing on Putin's Russia with a scholar's commitment to deep and meaningful research and reporter's eye for detail of color. Goldman has explained why and how Russia has again emerged as a global power. The answer is oil. At inflated prices it leads directly to inflated national aspirations and further down the road to dangers of a totally unpredictable nature. Read and learn. This one comes from professor of politics, Princeton University. Few developments are likely to reshape the contours of international -- excuse me. Why am I hearing something in my headphones, please? Could we have that fixed today, Dan? Excuse me. I'm sorry. All of a sudden my headphones just start picking up another show.

Few developments are likely to reshape the contours of international politics over the next decade more than Russia's ascent to an energy superpower and no one can tell the story, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Superb and readable description, yada, yada. The KGB is back with oil and petro dollars. This is a resurgence of Russia's power base, based on petro dollars.

We don't -- nobody's paying attention because all that John McCain and Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and everybody else, all they do is pay attention to today. They don't look at what's coming tomorrow. You know, they are looking either at today or what's going to come in 1,000 years from now. I got news for ya, gang. 1,000 years from now I hope we have better solutions. Look at what the world was like in 1008. You know, I don't think we could have sat back. Can you imagine -- can you imagine the arrogance of the people that were ruling the world in 1008. Well, what is this going to mean in 2008? What kind of policy should we make now in 1008? That's ridiculously stupid. "Well, I don't know. Is this ink that we're working on right now here in the Bible, is it good for the environment, or will the polar ice caps melt in 1,000 years? Oh, what will those people do while they're trying to scribe in their Bibles in 1,000 years." That's ridiculous! But that's all our politicians are talking to us about. 1,000 years from now or today.

Here's what I care about today. I care about the next one year, five years, ten years, 50 years. What we do will affect those years. What we do today will not affect today. It may affect a little bit tomorrow, a little bit more in five years, a lot in ten, and a huge amount in twenty. But everybody just wants to fix everything today. I'm sorry, but the Constitution didn't come from McDonald's. Some of these problems we have to look at, why is Russia going over and trying to buy -- this is a story that I found two weeks ago. I can't find it any place else. Nobody's paying attention to it. You've got to ask yourself why. Why is Russia going over to Libya and trying to buy all of their oil? Why is it that their minister of energy has said we are only interested in carbon energy now? Because they're looking to the future. Because Putin doesn't have to answer to the public. Oh, sure. I mean, he's got those elections he has to worry about. I was looking through this book last night. I mean, Stu, you're -- this is your kind of book because it's got all kinds of charts in it. It's got all kinds of charts and graphs, and it's talking about all of the gas companies and all of the -- and all of the heads of the media and the oil companies and everything else from the beginning of -- you know, from the fall of Russia, and it's absolutely amazing. I'm trying to find one of these things. It's absolutely amazing because if you look at them and you see what happened to each of these guys that were running, these companies -- I can't find it now. I can't find it now. It's hysterical. It's, you know, so-and-so arrested, so-and-so killed, so-and-so arrested, so-and-so arrested, and they're all -- these are the CEOs, and Putin all of a sudden appoints someone. Clean. No more problems. No more arrests. All of a sudden the oil company starts to just get everything done. It's amazing what this country has done. This country, Russia, sees the future. They know what's coming. Meanwhile we are playing games in Washington for power and it is short-term power. Somebody in Washington has to stand up and say what they mean and actually mean what they say.

Is it too much to ask, is it really too much to ask? Just tell me what you really mean. Now you have Barack Obama coming out and saying, well, we're not going to do the oil drilling. Well, I mean, we will if we have to compromise to get something done. You're not going to do it. If you're President of the United States and you have Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in congress and you're controlling Nancy and Harry as well, you're not going to drill. Why not just say that. Why not just, why not -- if you really, truly believe it, say it and damn the consequences. I am convinced that somebody who really says what they mean and mean what they say, somebody who just, they don't care, they just don't care. They know what's important. 

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.
