Glenn Beck: Political Geek Update


VOICE: Attention, attention, procrastinators of America. If you blew up filing your taxes on April 15th and decided to file an extension, today is your tax day. It's October 15th. Remember, as Joe Biden says, paying taxes is patriotic and luckily if he gets in office, you'll have an opportunity to be more and more patriotic every year. This message brought to you by the fat lazy people of America.

VOICE: Electoral votes, control of the Senate. Popular vote count, the latest poll. Control of the House. Up-to-the-minute rumors and falsehoods. Fancy buzzwords, and more. It's a political geek election report on the Glenn Beck program.

GLENN: Stu, I can't wait for the good news on which states you are going to call not for Obama today. You've gone way out on a limb.

STU: I really have, Glenn, and with 100% accuracy so far. I mean, you can never predict the future.

GLENN: Sure.

STU: But there's no reason to believe this will stop. It's a tidal wave of accuracy.

GLENN: What do we have today in political news?

STU: Well, the third debate is tonight, the final debate for the presidency. What are the things he needs to hit?

GLENN: He definitely needs to kick his ass.

STU: He can't just kind of --

GLENN: Stop with socialist ideas, he should probably say I'm going to unleash Sarah Palin like a pit bull in congress.

STU: I like that.

GLENN: Just sayin'. I'm gonna, you know, I'm gonna take a real strong look at that Fed and the Treasury and say I don't think we should give them all this power, and then take it back. I'm going to build a time machine so we can go back and -- these are just some of the things that I'm thinking. I'm just, I'm free-wheeling. We're in a safety tree, right?

STU: We're totally in a safety tree.

GLENN: We're just brainstorming here.

STU: Let it flow. You're freestyling.

GLENN: How about, you know what? I'm going to give it to -- I'm going to give it to Romney. I think I'm going to give it to Romney because I think he would probably have a better handle on the -- make people feel a little more comfortable on the economy.

STU: You are suggesting he ejects himself from the presidency?

GLENN: Yeah. Just, hey, that whole thing, you guys were wrong. That whole thing. I mean, I know you are already ahead, you are thinking I'm going to vote for Obama. You are wrong on that one, too. So I'm going to do the right thing.

STU: This is quite an interesting list. None of it's supported by polling, which is what I was going to give you a couple of --

GLENN: Okay, go ahead. What's the polling say?

STU: Well, let me give you two examples. Number one, a recent poll now says that Democrats are trusted on the issue of taxes 47-42%.

GLENN: Well, let me ask you this: When I say to you California is on fire, can you tell me which --

STU: Texas, Texas is also having all those huge economy problems.

GLENN: No, Texas isn't.

STU: Oh, they are the reverse?

GLENN: Yeah, when I say California is on fire, which -- do I mean in a literally or figuratively?

STU: That's a very good point.

GLENN: Both. It's a trick question. All right, anyway, go ahead.

STU: So 47-42 in taxes. McCain is not going to win this election if he can't convince people that Republicans have better tax policies. Of all things in the world, he's got to hit him on this 95% thing. He's got to hit him on this capital gains tax. He released a few very good proposals today. So hopefully he can actually articulate those to the people. Also in five swing states polling going on from Rasmussen which I believe is the most accurate pollster has every one of those states has more people extremely comfortable with Obama than they are with McCain. Again, can't lose on those two categories. So he's got a tough road to --

GLENN: Can you give some happy news?

STU: By the way --

GLENN: I mean, I'll invest in rope here in a second.

STU: We have our moment of hope here in a second. I shall --

GLENN: This is the moment of change?

STU: This is the moment of change, change in programming. In Hour 2 we have Scott Rasmussen, the pollster, on.

GLENN: Oh, good.

STU: For a half hour talking all sorts of polls, history, what's going on now. So that should be interesting.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Our moment of hope, 80% of CEOs think that McCain has a better economic policy. And, of course, as we know Democrats have been telling us for years, CEOs are evil and run the world. So if that's true, then he should be cruising to victory.

GLENN: Right. But he's strangely not. More importantly on that, that's from Chief Executive Magazine. They did I think 751 CEOs, they asked him which one are you for. None of them were for either. They were for -- they were actually for Mitt Romney. They were just, "If I have these two to choose from, it's going to be McCain." And the question, the second question or third question was which presidential candidate do you fear, if any. 64% said Obama.

STU: Wow. You'd think, though, if CEOs run the world, then Mitt Romney would have been the candidate. I don't know how that didn't work out. Let's call our states here, Glenn. We've got to make sure. Very important. Projected winner. We can now with 100% confidence call Washington D.C. for Barack Obama and Louisiana for John McCain. Our electoral vote count, John McCain 64, Barack Obama 20.

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.
