Dan Blog: Where in the world is Joe Biden?

Joe Biden burst on the scene promising to join Barack Obama and make some real change in this country. He never could have imagined the scope of the change he’d experience in just a short time on the campaign trail.

Just a few short weeks ago Joe Biden had the press hovering outside the gates of his Delaware home, waiting like vultures over their prey, hoping to catch a glimpse of the Senator and maybe even a scoop. Once selected, Biden was all too happy to hop aboard the Obama express to the White House. Perhaps it was that daydream dancing in his head that had him talking about Amtrak all the time.

Paying nearly $200 round trip to ride the super plush, super high speed Acela Express train everyday to and from Washington D.C. isn’t exactly the ‘everyman’ tale that Obama had hoped to hear from his newly crowned running mate. Joe---tell me about the Corolla you drive around or something---anything but the most expensive, CEO train in America! I guess Barack Obama was too blinded by his angelic choir and foam Greek columns to notice or care. Neither candidate cared---- after all, the democrats could do no wrong. It’s time for change!

Then John McCain announced his running mate.

And---to quote the immortal host of ‘Unsolved Mysteries’, Robert Stack (God rest his soul)---‘he was never seen again’.

Glenn mentioned it on the radio program that he has vanished---and it’s true. Joe Biden got some change all right---the only problem is that the change involves going from shining star to flickering flameout.

Here are about the only two things I’ve seen in the media in the last couple of days that the press felt worthy to mention of Biden. First up:

Biden: Palin not a step forward for women---she’s a step backwards

Ouch. Yeah, that’s the road you want to go down, Joe---to bash women. No seriously, that will play well. Go with it. Don’t forget to work a train mention in there too.

And the other story:

Biden comments called a ‘new low’

Catchy headline with no meat, perhaps? Biden hopes you think so and brush off the headline because if you click on the link it only gets worse. When talking about special needs children and stem cell research, he said ‘well guess what folks, if you care about it, why don’t you support stem cell research?’.

Joe—good job getting at least some media attention---bad job on it being because you are questioning how much Sarah Palin cares about special needs kids…you know, ones LIKE HER OWN child.

Thinks aren’t looking good for the Amtrak warrior these days. Despite his superhuman taxpayer funded efforts of riding in a huge, plush recliner for an agonizing 90 minutes to and fro work---which make Marcus Luttrell’s efforts look like kids play in comparison (Marcus—I know you know this but just for the sake of my own life---that was sarcasm) ---Joe is somehow not stacking up against the hockey mom from Wasilla.

At least Joe has a lot of time on his hands on that train, as he’s looking out the window and into houses, to wonder just how in the heck he’s going to not get embarrassed in his debate with Sarah Barracuda.

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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."
