Glenn Beck: Battle of the Headlines - VP debate

VOICE: Barack Obama, John McCain. Two candidates, one winner. The Battle of the Headlines is about to begin. First here's the pregame analysis with Ted Stantley and Gary Veckers.

STU: I tell you, very exciting debate last night between the two presidential candidates. Gary, what do you think -- how do you think this will translate to the headlines?

DAN: I tell you what, it's a great debate but I'm going to have to say the maverick's maverick pick of a running mate paid off in maverick proportions last night. I think the press will have to give the win to the maverick of the two. She was so mavericky that I thought I was actually watching Top Gun she said maverick so many times.

STU: I don't think that's what she means by maverick.

DAN: I think it was. You could see the maverickosity on the stage. You could see the history, singing the crazy songs, you lost that loving feeling and one admiral's daughter, you know, Penny Benjamin.

STU: You might be watching a little bit too much TBS, Gary.

VOICE: The battle starts now. Here's Glenn Beck with today's headlines.

GLENN: Headline number one for John McCain. Palin's not ready. Headline number two, Palin struggles to keep up with Joe Biden. Headline number three: Palin all attitude and image to Biden's facts and focus. And headline number four: Perky Palin lacks seriousness.

VOICE: It's time for halftime analysis with our own Ted Stantley and Gary Veckers.

STU: Wow, do I hate the media. Doesn't it sound like the -- that's the amount of --

GLENN: I was just saying the same thing. Unbelievable, these people.

STU: Wow. Doesn't it sound like the press was very impressed?

DAN: No, it doesn't. But Ted --

STU: It's so true. I just can't take any more. I just can't take it anymore! Hey, Gary, let me ask you this: Doesn't it sound like the press was very impressed with your maverick?

DAN: You've got to never leave your wingman there, Teddy, never, ever leave your wingman.

STU: If you make another Top Gun reference I'm going to have to tell you that I pray you end up like Goose.

VOICE: The second half starts now. Once again here's Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Barack Obama headline number one: Biden strategy edges Palin's style. Headline number two: Biden's ready for the job. Headline number three: Poll says Biden the winner. And headline number four: Biden polished. Palin short on substance.

VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top. Gee, what a frickin' surprise.

GLENN: Stu, let me ask you a question.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: When the end comes, do you think that there's enough people in America that know that I'm not part of the media? Because I just think that they're gonna come, I just think that they're gonna come with torches for these people at some point.

STU: No, you're in trouble here. You have to make sure you make that -- because I think a lot of people when they look at you, they think, wow, mainstream media. Maybe not. Perhaps not. It is unreal. It was interesting to watch last night of the coverage afterwards. It's like, you -- people don't pay attention to what happens anymore. It's just, if you're on this side, then you remain on that side. If you are on the other side, you remain on that side. You just walk down. When you find someone who actually -- look, I'll tell you last night I thought Joe Biden was really good. I thought he did a very solid job. I think he did everything that he had to do. Now, he does -- boldface lies several times but he doesn't have to do anything better than that. He's just maintaining. I thought Palin was great.

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."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.
