GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. There is a lot to deal with today and want to take your phone calls today, want to try to break it down a little bit on what all of this stuff means today, what has caused all of this. What has Freddie and Fannie, what role do they play? How did that even start? What happened to us? Is it because of deregulation, is it because the Republicans said there's not enough regulation or what? What is the deal? What happened yesterday? I thought we were close to a deal. Now we don't have a deal. Now the stock markets are probably going to crash today. Now the Dow futures are down almost 200 points. What happened? How did we get here? What is the rest of the world saying? What is the President saying behind the scenes? I'm going to bring you some pieces of information from a couple of conversations that I have had over the last couple of days with people that have been with the President and have been with some of the candidates. They have been in the rooms. They have had one-on-one conversations. What is it they're telling us? The President is saying that there is a -- the President is saying that there is a bad economic recession. I'm going to give you a conversation where it was reported to me that the President said the words "If we survive." I have to tell you, we've got to do something but not just anything.

You know that I came to you on Monday and I said, look, I have been studying this all week, or all weekend and I have been talking to my sources, I've been doing my homework. I've been doing my homework on this for about two years, and I know, I know the things that most Americans struggle with every day and I know them because I struggled with them two years ago. I didn't know how the money system worked. I didn't know how the banks made loans. I didn't understand Freddie and Fannie. I didn't know what the Community Reinvestment Act was. Most of these things you don't know, either, and you know what? God bless ya. You don't necessarily have to, but you have to be able to understand enough of it to be able to make a good decision. And I told you that this is quite possibly the most important decision and, in fact, I know this is. For me as an American citizen, not as a broadcaster, as an American citizen this is the most important few days of my life. As a dad, what our country does in the next few days will decide our children's future. This is not about an -- God bless you, the election seems like it's 5,000 years away for me now. The election, please, let's not even talk about the election because we're a long way away from the -- the entire world could change by the election.

We are facing quite possibly a Soviet style collapse. This is what Ron Paul told me on the air a couple of days ago, that we are facing a Soviet style collapse. I don't know if that is true. I hope to God it's not. I hope we go into a Depression -- well, no, I don't hope that. But I mean, I hope that's as bad as it could ever get, that we would go into a Depression. However, I'm starting to see signs now from the rest of the world that that's not what they're pushing for. The rest of the world -- and I told you before about the perfect storm. The rest of the world is pushing, is pushing to discredit capitalism. The UN is pushing now for one-world financial system. Germany, Russia, China, everybody is looking to get rid of the U.S. dollar. They are looking for a stabilization of the dollar and a normalization of the dollar along -- right next to other foreign currencies. Gang, we are about to lose our superpower status and that's why I say to you and have for the last while, you've got to prepare, you've got to know what's going on and you have to prepare your friends. You cannot be playing politics with this. The people in Washington -- you know what, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, you guys, you guys have control of the congress. If you really, truly believe this, stop playing politics. If you really, truly believe. And I know good solid citizens that believe that the bailout package that congress had yesterday that the President wants and that the Democrats want, there are good solid citizens -- do not count me as one of them -- that think this is a good idea. Then you have control; pass it. That's what leaders do. They make decisions that are unpopular. Pass it. Why are you standing around and saying where are the Republicans? Pass it. This is, unfortunately with too many people they have not come to the table yet. They are still playing politics, and they are playing it because you -- or we the people don't really have a handle on what this really means. So I'm going to try to take you there. I'm going to try to take you to the place to where you can see that whether John McCain did this for politics or not, I don't know. I don't care. I'm not paying attention to either one of those two now. But when Barack Obama says we're going to -- you know, we can multitask, that shows to me a fundamental misunderstanding of what the situation is. When missiles are flying over the polar icecap, you don't multitask. And we have economic missiles flying over the polar icecap. You've got 12 minutes to live. So Mr. President, could I have your focus on this for just a second?

I would like to see John McCain and Obama take a stand, not just go for the press conference, not just go for the quick shots of sitting around the table with everybody but actually lead. Where is the leader? I'll tell you where the leader is. They are all afraid because what we have done is over time we have elected weasels. We have elected people that don't know what they stand for. They don't know what they believe in. I know what I believe. I know it, and I've been tested and I've been thrown up against a wall. So many people have. You probably have been tested, and you're tested through failure. That's the only way you know what you truly believe because once you failed, once your -- I bet a good portion of this audience, maybe not you, will understand what I'm about to say. When you're laying down on the floor in the fetal position on the carpet of a rat-infested apartment that you can barely afford and your whole life has fallen apart, you got two choices: Life or death. And when you choose life, you know, "Okay, I can't live this way anymore. So what got me here. What do I believe in. What are the things that I actually believe in." I've been in that fetal position. Millions of Americans have been in that fetal position. You may be in that fetal position right now for a myriad of reasons.

Our financial sector is in that fetal position right now. Well, damn it, where are the people who stand up and say "I know what I believe. I believe in capitalism. I believe in the American spirit. I believe in freedom. I believe in the ability to fail and the ability to succeed. I believe in my fellow American. I do not believe in some gigantic global entity that's telling me how to live my life."

The world is about to change, gang. As much as the world changed on September 11th, it is about to change even more. And unfortunately there are no burning towers to alert the people. But that's the way usual -- that is usually the way evil wins. When it's blatant, when it's on fire, you don't see it coming. And evil wins because good people do nothing, and good people do nothing because they don't necessarily see it. I really, truly believe in divine providence. I really believe it. I really, truly believe that you're listening for a reason. Maybe not everybody, but you. Ask yourself, what is the message that I'm supposed to get? What is it I'm supposed to hear? What is it I'm supposed to do? What is it I'm supposed to tell other people? I will tell you what I believe I am supposed to tell you today and that is we are going to make it. It is going to be ugly, it is going to be brutal, but we are going to make it, and the reason why we're going to make it is because of people like you, and you've got to go find more people like you. You've got to go take them by the shoulders today and look them square in the eyes and say, wake up, man; okay, wake up; here it is. You need to stand fast in what you believe. You need to rededicate yourself today to those things that are real. There is a massive storm coming to our shores and you must be the rock. But you've got to ask yourself, what is that rock? What are you built on? Not politics.

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.
