CALLER: Can I say one more thing?

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: When Barbara Walters looks at you with just nothing but contempt, I want you to know and I want you to feel like the Verizon commercial and realize that we're standing there right behind you and she's really truly staring at us. It's not and you are getting through, and I can't imagine. If I was to quote/unquote do you to one of my friends and I was to try to pretend to be Glenn Beck, what I would do, you know, the way that I would try to, you know, get you would be that I would say, really? And so you are just simply asking the question, you are asking people to, you know, come on, are we all cool with this? Is this okay? And so Barbara Walters is just angry as she can possibly be because you have the I got the word, but anyway, the temerity to question just the status quo. I mean, she's just bitterly angry at you for that? I don't understand.

GLENN: Well, you know, Jason, I thank you for that and I appreciate it and I really do appreciate it. The best advice given to me just recently was just keep asking questions. Just keep asking questions.

I was talking to somebody late last night and we were talking about the ACORN thing and I said, this whole thing is going to fall apart. The whole thing, all of this is going to fall apart. At the point that I can show people and I can't do it yet. At the point where I can show you this, this and this is going on, I can prove that these things are going on, which answers this nagging feeling that you have here, here and here in society, why are we spending so much money? Why is this happening? Why is no one paying attention to this? Why is the media avoiding? Why is Washington not doing anything about it? What do they get out of it? Those are the questions that everybody is asking. Something's wrong. When the answer is finally apparent, there's going to come a time to where and I'm beginning to feel it now, not just there but on other things. I have had these moments recently where I've said, oh, my gosh. Now, I haven't shared some of the things with you that I'm on the track on because I don't want to I don't even want to tip my hand in case they're wrong. I want to make sure they're right. And I have I mean, I had a meeting, a pretty big meeting yesterday just trying to find out who I can turn to that is just so buttoned up. I don't want to go to somebody I want somebody working with me that is that challenges me on absolutely everything, goes into this saying, "There's no way this is true" but is willing to look and really honestly doesn't have a problem with being wrong. Because I don't have a problem with being wrong. I'm not going to bring you something that is wrong, not on some of the things that I'm working on now. I'm just not willing to do it. I'm willing one of the things I'm willing to say, you know, I think this might be... not on this. But as things are starting to become more and more clear to me, I realize that if I can just show you in a clear way with evidence what's going to happen is the country will look at it because it will ring true with your gut, if you still believe in the truth, no matter whose truth it is, you will look at it and go, oh, my gosh, and then it's over. It's lights out. And I think we're getting there because there's going to be more and more pressure on the outside and there's more there's going to be more and more truth out there. And as those two things grow, like again with Craig T. Nelson. With people starting to say, you know what, I want none of this, it's going to escalate things. And when things escalate on both sides and this is why I've said no violence, nothing stupid, be very careful who you get information from, be very careful on what you do. If you think of, "I'm just, I'll start the ball rolling. I grab my gun..." you are going to discredit everything you think you stand for. Where somebody, when the going gets tough, that's when somebody makes a mistake. And my guess is they make it first because this is so big, so out of control, they are going to make a mistake. They already have. They just don't know it yet, and you don't, either. But it's coming. And it will just collapse on its own weight.

STU: I've got to say this caller I think has the analogy of the year because that Verizon commercial is exactly, it's such a great analogy because, you know, you talk about, you know, you're out here, you're on TV, you are saying all these things and there's all these people behind you, which is I think the way he meant it. But to go further on it, you could sit here and run your mouth on the phone all day. But if the Verizon people aren't there making it work, it doesn't mean anything. You are talking to yourself.

GLENN: Gosh.

STU: It's such a great analogy.

GLENN: You know, Stu, I was going to ask you, I woke up in the middle of the night last week and, my gosh, blubbering Glenn is here because sometimes things just click and I don't know why and they bother me for a long time. It just clicked. Woke up last week, last weekend, middle of the night. Clear, clear as a bell on a theory of support and foundations and I'm like, what am I supposed to what is that all about? You just, you just said it. What I woke up with was when you get up on a ladder, you make sure that the ladder is open all the way and those little arms inside are down and that way you can reach higher, okay? But if you really have to go up, what you need to do is you want to have people like you that are holding onto each corner of that ladder and holding on and bracing that ladder and you want to make sure that they really understand what's going on so you can climb up and get to the top, you know what I mean? That's our society right now. And the corners, the ladder that we're climbing on is the Constitution. The ladder that we're using to climb up above everything else is the Constitution, but not enough people have used it. Not enough people have even experienced it, and others have just been closing it slowly. You have to know what it is. You have to, when you pull that ladder out, you need to say, "Okay, wait a minute, hang on, how do we use this again?" Pull it all the way open and lock those things into place. You need to do that. But then you need to get some other friends and talk to them and say, "Okay, you know what this is? Okay, and I'm going to come up here but it's going to get shaky. Can you just hold this down?" We all work together but we all have to educate each other. We all have to be in this together. If we can hold the ladder, if we can understand it, find it, understand it, unfold it, lock it into place and then each of us work together to make sure we hold it into place, we're going to be able to do amazing things, amazing things. Wow, thanks, Stu. I thought of that this morning on the way in. What the hell was that ladder thing for? Thank you for jarring that. And thanks to the caller who did that, too.

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.
