GLENN: So here's the thing. It's taken me a while to be able to figure out how to explain what's going on even to myself and so if I may take a moment and try to explain what the hell these people are doing to our money, let's just say you're you. I know that's a stretch but try to pretend you're you and you're just living in a regular you place and next door to you a guy that you've known forever and you think he's a pretty nice guy and all of a sudden he comes back and he's like, "Hey, I got married in Vegas this last weekend. You're like, you got married in Vegas, you're kidding me. That doesn't seem like you "Yeah, well, Paris Hilton was there." "Wait a minute. You married Paris Hilton?" "Yeah." "You think that's a good idea?" "Well, why not? She's hot." "I know, but really? I mean, that's going to work out?" "Sure it is."

All right. So there you are being you in your you kind much place and your next door neighbor who's, used to be just like you but now is married to Paris Hilton tears down his old house because Paris says we need a bigger house and you go over to the neighbor's house and they are like, hey, how are you affording this house? And you're like, "Oh, have I told you how great the sex is with Paris Hilton?" Pretty soon your friend is starting to tell you about how many purses she has. She's going out every day and she's buying a Louis Vuitton purse or a Coach purse or a Prada purse and she's bringing them back and your friend is now saying, "Honey, I don't think we can afford all these purses." "Yeah, I can, because I'm charging them." (Laughing). So she's charging all of the purses and you say to your friend, "This isn't really a good idea." And your friend says, "I know, but have I told you how great the sex is?"

So she continues to charge purses and she buys more and more and more purses, so many purses now that the purses can't even fit in the house. Your friend is now living in the car while Paris is in the house with the purses. It's a bigger house, by the way, and you're in a small little car seeing your friend once in a while. He only asks you to leave, you know, when he has to sleep or his wife comes to visit. You know what I'm saying?

So now your friend is there with all the purses living in his car, giant house, sex once in a while with Paris Hilton. He's living the sweet life. You and your wife are going, I don't know how he's doing it. This can't last. But Paris continues to say, "The purses, they're going to increase in value. They're going to be great. We're going to be so rich because these purses are $4,000 a piece right now, but people these are going to go up in value." And you keep saying to yourself, "I don't think so. I don't think those purses are worth, you know, 50 bucks, let alone I mean, they are just a piece of cow leather. That's all they are." "But they say, like, fancy names and stuff on them." They're still cow leather. "You don't understand the purse world."

And so Paris and her husband are making fun of you because you are not on the purse bandwagon. You are not somebody who understands it. You say it doesn't make sense, but everybody else tells you, "You're just stupid." And they continue to buy purses next door.

Well, one day, one day all of a sudden the purse store wants the payments for the payments because somehow or another the purses aren't selling anymore. Somehow or another people realize, $4,000 for a purse, that's really stupid. "I know, but have I told you how great the sex is?" "Yeah, I know you're happy and everything, but $4,000." So nobody's buying purses anymore.

So now your neighbor's in a full fledged panic. Well, not to worry, not to worry because before Paris Hilton can collapse, here comes the Parker Brothers guy, you know, the guy with a top hat, you know, from the Monopoly? "Hey, everybody, I'm here with money. I got money, money, money, money." And so he comes to the door and he's got lots of money. And he's like, "Don't worry, I can bail you out. I got money!" And he starts throwing money around and giving them all this money to your friend who then gives it to his wife who then goes out and buys more purses with it. And you're like, "You know, Bob, I don't think that's I don't think that you should be buying more purses and that money looks a little funny right now." "What? It's Monopoly money. It's good. Look at all the pretty colors." And your friend's got a whole stack of money, but in between some of the green ones are like orange ones and pink ones and white ones and you're like, okay, I don't think those are Canadian dollars because Canadian dollars are actually worth more than the green ones right now. So you should probably be careful of asking the Monopoly guy for more money. But the Monopoly guy named Hank continues to bring more Monopoly money to your friend and his collection of purses.

Well, then because the purse stores are all going to collapse, the purse stores all get together and they go to the purse reserve. "Hey, we're going to have one of our biggest customers fail here. What do we do." So the purse reserve gets together with the Monopoly guy and says, "You know what, if you'll guarantee the loans on these purses with your Monopoly money, we'll just hold all of these purses over here in the purse reserve." This is great! This is fantastic because now all of the purses are gone and they're in the purse reserve. They've all been paid for by the Parker Brothers guy and your friend is free to move back into his house with Paris Hilton and they can have sex and she oh, wait a minute, hang on. He can't have sex with her because she's out buying more purses again. Because she hasn't learned her lesson.

She can't wait because they are the only one that actually gets hurt in this. Well, no, not true. Until your wife decides she just wants a simple purse. She hasn't been collecting purses. She just wants to buy one purse. That's all she wants. Unfortunately she can't get a loan for the purse. She can't she doesn't have any money for the purse because all the money is tied up with Parker Brothers and the purse reserve. Only big buyers of purses, only Paris Hilton can get that access now to that cash to buy more purses. Your wife can't buy a purse because there's no money available for the small, little people who weren't on the purse bandwagon in the first place.

So the moral of the story is everyone but you is dumber than Paris Hilton. The Fed and the Treasury, they get it. The irresponsible neighbor, he's had sex with Paris Hilton. But look at it this way. You're getting screwed by the Parker Brothers guy, huh? An then the Super Collider kicks in and we're all sucked into a black hole.

So that is what's happened in a nutshell to you over the weekend. I hope it was good. Did you get a chance to smoke? Because, mmm, that Parker Brothers guy is hot, isn't he?

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.
