GLENN: And now there was also some good news and some bad news, speaking of people. On Friday I know a lot of people were very upset at me and we talked about it off the air and I'm like, guys, you guys are setting me up, man. We had this whole thing planned about Palin. We had talked about it the night before. That what we were going to do was say that we had bikini photos because the number one search for Palin was like, hot Palin, sex Palin, all of these things. So we were talking about, what are we turning into as a country that that's what you're looking for? So we decided, what we're going to do is we say that we have bikini photos. We don't have any bikini photos. I'm happy to say if I had bikini photos, I wouldn't put them in the newsletter. But what we decided to do is since there were so many people that would be drawn to bikini photos that we would not the bikini photos but all the things that you need to know about Sarah Palin and put it in a way that you could send it to your friends that they're like, oh, bikini photos? And it was kind of a joke but then in the end you learned a lot about Sarah Palin. Dan, you want to give me some of the stats?


DAN: Yes, I do, Glenn.

GLENN: There's good news and bad news.

DAN: Yes.

GLENN: We get to the good news at the very, very, very end.

DAN: So the first page was the warning, you know, click here to get the pictures. And there was a link

GLENN: Click here for Palin bikini pics.

DAN: Warning, you are going to get pictures of Sarah Palin in a bikini here. Compared to the previous most open item on the news, Glenn Beck newsletter which was ironically your butt surgery video, which was huge.

GLENN: My butt?

DAN: The open rate. So anyway, that was six times bigger than your butt surgery video.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

DAN: Six times bigger. Which was humongous.

GLENN: Wasn't the Palin thing, because when I released that video where I talk about suicide and everything else, that was everywhere, it was huge on YouTube. But I don't even think that made it to number one. Wasn't it like number two or number three? Joe was telling me over the weekend my Palin interview was number one on YouTube when they announced. Did you know that?

STU: Yeah, yeah, it was the number one most watched Palin video. And it still was for even after her speech for at least a while. I don't know that it currently is but it's up there. It's over 700,000 views of that interview.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

DAN: Disturbing part about that stat, by the way, Glenn, videos about your butt is only six times less interesting than Sarah Palin and bikinis. There should be more of a separation there.

GLENN: Should be more of a spread, yes, I agree with you, yes.

DAN: But anyway, still a lot bigger. So then you get to the next at the bottom of that page it said, really? She's a governor, you shouldn't be looking at these pictures but if you really want to see them, click here was the next one.

GLENN: Right.

DAN: So 62% of the people who got the warning clicked the link to move forward and see the bikini pictures.

STU: I'm surprised it's only 62%.

GLENN: 38% of the people bailed out, they felt guilty. They are like, oh, you've got to be kidding. It's us, man, you don't fall through. Come on!

DAN: I mean, you've gone through the warning, you've done everything else.

GLENN: You are like, okay, I'm going to make half the effort. You know what I mean? It was like, look, it was so easy. But then all of a sudden it's like Jiminy Cricket pops up. Pinocchio, you can't do that. I want to be a real boy. I want to look at the pictures.

DAN: Mentally you've already committed. You might as well just go ahead and do it. You know what I'm saying? 38%, that was a pretty decent rate there. Then the final page was the last one that had, you know, all the stats and stuff on it, you know, again with no actual bikini picture. But this is where our stats get a little foggy because tens of thousands of people are now passing the final page around on the Internet. So the last page actually increased by 20%. More than the one before.

GLENN: There's more people opening up the last page. Wasn't it I was supposed to go out as a whole thing so you could it doesn't do that, huh?

DAN: Technically just didn't work that way this time. I think if we have more pictures of her in a bikini

GLENN: If you send it to your friends, is the subject line still bikini pics?

STU: Yeah, says Sarah Palin bikini pictures.

GLENN: Can we make that page available so you can send it to your friends?

STU: I think that's the big thing here is you have to get your friends on it.

GLENN: They do.

STU: And the thing about it is the last page because we got some angry e mails on Friday. People really pissed at us, "What if it was your daughter? What would you do then?"

DAN: You are a moral man, Glenn, you know better than this.

GLENN: No, I do. Look, here's the thing, here's the thing. A, I'm not going to come off my stance. She's hot. She's smoking hot and I know, I got a lot of mail from people in the last week, "That's demeaning." No, it's not. She's hot.

DAN: Nothing wrong with that.

GLENN: You can say she's hot.

STU: It's scientifically confirmed, Glenn. You have to say it.

DAN: They say it about Barack Obama.

GLENN: Please stop with that. She's hot. That doesn't mean I want to go and have sex photos of her, although no. It's not that I want I mean, come on. I can recognize that she's hot. I am a man. She's a woman. That's a normal thing.

With that being said, we shouldn't I don't think we should be looking for her bikini photos and that's why I mean, give me some benefit of the doubt, will you? I mean, people who have listened to this program and who have made it through the through Bo Bo and have made it through the first ever on air abortion which, by the way, turned out surprisingly enough to be Al Frankens' first show, which I didn't see it coming. But anybody who went through that, you should give us the benefit of the doubt that we're yes, we're on the edge but we're not going to be sending around bikini

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I want to make sure we don't have any, right? So I can make this blanket statement?

STU: Yes, you can.

GLENN: Until we get them, we're not going to be sending around Palin bikini pics.

STU: The point of it was at the end

GLENN: I don't really want to see them.

STU: I do. But the point of this was that you'd send this around to your friends, it would get clicked on and at the end there's sort of a Sarah Palin myth busters thing which shows, goes through some of the stupid things that they are passing around about her and how they are not true and how all these you know, there's videos of all these things being, you know, kind of debunked. So I mean, the point of it is that eventually you get to, we lure people into actually hearing good information.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. It is the Fusion of entertainment and enlightenment.

STU: There you go.

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.
