GLENN: Anyway, so being a member of the hard right, let's look at those.

STU: Because this is ‑‑ I mean, if you are a member of the hard right.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And he said traditional values arguments are done along with a strong foreign policy, which is ‑‑

GLENN: Yeah. It's so ‑‑ I am so glad that that strong foreign policy thing is done.

STU: What's the opposite? I mean, we have to ‑‑ I guess if the strong foreign policy's dead ‑‑

GLENN: I know the answer.

STU: What is the opposite of that, Glenn?

GLENN: Transnationalism.

STU: Well, I was going to say weak foreign policy.

GLENN: No, it's transnationalism.

STU: I guess they are in the one and the same.

GLENN: I have such a clear understanding and we'll get into it later ‑‑ oh, yeah, we'll become Charlie Rose soon. But I understand. I get it. I get it. I really ‑‑ you know, I've been looking for a while. I think we all ask ourselves, why is this happening? How did we get here? How did this all happen? It so congealed in my head, it was actually, it was Friday morning at 5:00 or 4:00 a.m. and I was just finishing up working on a book that's coming out and I was just finishing it and it's 4:00, 4:30 and Joe was there, my chief researcher, and he was there and we were going back and forth and I said, Joe, I get it. It's not a Star Chamber, there's no conspiracy. I understand it. I really truly believe not all of the detail yet but I know exactly where it happened, where the country went off track. And I know how we look at left and right, why we do. I know why people make fun of libertarians, I know it all, I get it. I get it. I'm going to share it with you later. But it is the left in this country, they done want a strong foreign policy. They want transnationalism. They want the United Nations. The right wants a strong foreign policy. The libertarian says, hey, hey, guys, every time we get involved, it really kind of gets screwed up. You know what I mean? What do you say we just kind of hang back here for a while? Somebody attacks us, we bomb the bat snot out of them, you know? Somebody takes a hostage, you know, a pirate or something, we shoot them in the head. Congratulations, President Barack Obama. You would have gotten the blame had it gone poorly, you get the credit today for doing the right thing. Would have liked to not have it takes five days, but congratulations, you did the right thing.

So why is it we only discuss really aggressive foreign policy? "Boy, that strong foreign policy is dead. We're going to give it all to the United Nations. " Hang on just a second. I think there's a third choice here. I'm sorry, was I using traditional values?

STU: You were.

GLENN: That was crazy. Those things are over. Okay, so some of the traditional values, just go ahead and give them.

STU: Honesty.

GLENN: That's out.

STU: It's dead, he's right.

GLENN: That's dead.

STU: He's right on that. Reverence.

GLENN: Reverence, let's see. Reverence, reverence, reverence.

STU: Pretty much dead.

GLENN: Now let's look for a way we can be reverent on things. Nope, can. Okay, it's dead.

STU: Hope is definitely not dead.

GLENN: Nope, it's not dead.

STU: It's changing, it's hoping all the time, more change and more hope.

GLENN: Hope, hope, hope, hope. Hope.

STU: That's alive and well.

GLENN: And that one's a traditional American value. We're hoping.

STU: So Chuck is wrong there.

GLENN: Chuck is wrong on one.

STU: Thrift.

GLENN: Thrift, dead, dead. Hang on just a second. Let me get a hammer. We've just got to put some really big railroad spikes into this coffin called thrift

STU: Humility.

GLENN: Humility, dead

STU: Charity.

GLENN: Charity is quickly being killed.

STU: It's being killed but it's in the process of being ‑‑

GLENN: It's in the process of being ‑‑

STU: Brutally slaughtered.

GLENN: It's not killed. It's dead with the progressive class. I mean, charity only counts when you are running for president. You know what I mean.

STU: Exactly.

GLENN: Then you are like, I am so charitable right now. I'm crazy charitable.

STU: And then when you get the presidency, you take away the deduction so people done give to charity as much.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And then they have to come to you.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Which is because as you've pointed out many times, two days from now everyone is going to feel so charitable.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Didn't you wake up this morning ‑‑ last night I signed my income tax forms and I didn't sign them with a hot poker, I didn't, no. Wanted to but I didn't. And the reason why I didn't, I thought, look at all of the people that we're helping, with about 4 cents on every dollar that I spend. About 4 cents, honey, of every dollar that I give to the government is going to help someone, and I feel so warm and cuddly inside. Tax day, tea parties, what?

STU: Well, I'm going to need another show for you to prove to me that 4 cents actually does that. We don't have that sort of time here.

GLENN: No, no. No, don't have to do it because honesty is dead.

STU: No, that's perfect. There you go. How about sincerity.

GLENN: Sincerity.

STU: For example, if someone were to say preach bipartisanship to the public while not actually intending to do anything bipartisan.

GLENN: No, no, no, no, no, no. That's ‑‑ can we play the new clip from Chuck Schumer here? Let's just see how many times we can count, how many times we can count where he is being sincere. Go ahead.

SCHUMER: The hard right which still believes when the federal government moves, chop off its hands, he will be ‑‑

GLENN: Stop. Do you believe they were sincere on that?

STU: The hard right believes that when the government moves, you chop off its hands.

GLENN: That was sincere. Go ahead.

SCHUMER: Still believes that traditional values kind of arguments ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop. Believes that those traditional arguments and stuff. Okay, next.

SCHUMER: Arguments and strong foreign policy, all that's over. And I think President Obama has a pretty smart strategy. He's going to talk bipartisanship to the American people but ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop.

STU: How is he admitting this?

GLENN: Because they don't care.

STU: They just don't care. Goes back to humility.

GLENN: It does go back to humility. These guys are so unbelievably arrogant, so unbelievably arrogant because they know. We can stick hot pokers in their eyes and they won't do anything. What are they going to do? What are they going to do?

STU: We've been doing this and now we have more control than we've had.

GLENN: Yeah. We've been screwing these people since 1912.

STU: And we just keep getting more and more power.

GLENN: More and more power.

STU: It's like when you go to pick up the hot girl. When you go to pick up the hot girl, you've got to be a jerk because they only respond to the jerks. That's the way it always is. You always go to the bar, the guy who blows them off is the one who gets them. That's what the politicians are. They just blow us off, they ignore us all the time, they get more and more power and more and more votes. Let's throw a party.

GLENN: I'm not sure if I agree with you on the hot girls.

STU: Trust me, that's how it works. That's how it works in society, Glenn.

GLENN: I don't think ‑‑

STU: No, trust me.

GLENN: You know what, I forgot. Traditional values are out the window. You are right. You are exactly right. Okay. So what's the next one?

STU: Moderation.

GLENN: Moderation, moderation. Moderation, trying to use that in a sentence in Washington other than moderation in Washington is dead. Honesty is used with extreme moderation in Washington.

STU: That's excellent. So he is wrong on that one.

GLENN: He's wrong.

STU: Hard work.

GLENN: Mmm‑hmmm, I think that's dead.

STU: George Bush did say it a lot.

GLENN: Yeah, we've got a lot of hard work to do, hard work, hard work.

STU: Courage.

GLENN: Courage.

STU: This Washington.

GLENN: Gone.

STU: Personal responsibility. No, that's definitely gone.

GLENN: You think of these in the framework of Washington. They are all dead. He's right. He just is wrong that it's dead in the rest of the country.

STU: Right, yeah.

GLENN: It's just dead in Washington. He is absolutely right. All of these are dead, except for moderation, when used in conjunction with honesty.

STU: And then gratitude is the last one. They do give a thank you speech after every election.

GLENN: God bless America. That goes for the reverence thing, too.

STU: There you go.

GLENN: So you know what? He's tragically right. Now, the question is, is he tragically right in your neighborhood? See, these guys completely misunderstand. They complete misunderstand, for instance, the tea parties. There's a story today. Let's see. Beale's attack ‑‑ they are calling me Howard Beale again. Beale's attacks were not bipartisan. Beck by contrast unleashes his anger against and whips up dark scenarios about the new president of the United States. There's a big difference. If he were burning effigies of Bush to protest the massive debt we now face, I might take his word in good faith and take it more seriously.

STU: Way to pay attention.

GLENN: Yeah, you didn't pay attention. You just didn't happen to be watching me at the time. You know what I mean? I was saying those very things. I wasn't burning an effigy but I don't believe I've burned Obama an effigy, either.

STU: Only at your home behind closed doors.

GLENN: Shhh, quiet. Honesty is dead. Don't you remember?

They don't understand you and they don't understand the tea parties and it is because the chattering class, as Chuck Schumer likes to put it, just is out of touch as the ruling class.

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.
