GLENN: Let's move on with this. So here we go.

VOICE: Good luck with Rio. Now, last year I was elected with a mandate to bring this country "Change we could believe in" and as time has passed, it has become clear that this promise is troubling to some people. There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I'm turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. But that's just not the case. Because when you look at my record, it's very clear what I've done so far and that is... nothing. (Laughter). Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it. You don't believe me? You think I'm making it up? Take a look at this checklist.

Now, on my first day in office... (laughter), in my first day in office I said I've closed Guantanamo Bay. Is it closed yet? No. (Laughter). I said we'd be out of Iraq. Are we? Not the last time I checked. (Laughter). I said I'd make improvements in the war in Afghanistan. Is it better? No, I think it's actually worse. (Laughter). How about health care reform? Hell no. (Laughter). I even, I even went personally to try to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. It didn't work out. But in this case there's some good news with the bad. For every person who buys an American car in the next six months, you're going to get... one of these. (Laughter)

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's a T‑shirt.

PAT: It's a 2016, Chicago 2016 T‑shirt.

(Applause).

VOICE: Now, I just don't see why the right is so riled up. I mean, how do you think the left feels? They are the ones that should be mad. Now, I'm sure they thought I would have addressed at least one of the following things by now: Global warming. No. Immigration reform? No. Gays in the military? Nuh‑uh. Limits on executive powers? No. Torture prosecutions? No. So looking at this list I'm seeing two big accomplishments: Jack and squat. (Laughter). And remember, I can do whatever I want. I have a majority in both houses of congress. I could make it mandatory for all gays to marry and require all cars to run on marijuana, but do I? No. (Laughter). But it's not all bad news. I have a few accomplishments. The Cash For Clunkers program really stimulated the economy. Unfortunately it was the economy of Japan. (Laughter). Let's see what else. Also I killed a fly on TV. Remember that? (Laughter). I brought a white police officer and a black professor together for a beer. Who else could do that? (Laughter). You're right. Oprah. No one else. (Laughter). So please stop saying this country is on the road to socialism. If that were actually the case, I'd be making some real changes. Instead it took me four months to pick out a dog. So all of you frothing Glenn Beck supporters, put away those tricorner hats and those PhotoShop pictures of me as the Joker because if I see any more of this hateful rhetoric, I'm going to have to take drastic action... no, not really. (Laughter).

PAT: So that's essentially it.

STU: That's a pretty funny ‑‑ it's a pretty funny bit.

PAT: Mildly amusing.

GLENN: It's groundbreaking. Mildly amusing? It is groundbreaking. I have not seen anyone in the mainstream media take on anyone, no one. This is the first comedic punt.

PAT: Yeah. It's interesting how they took him on, though. They took him on if that he hasn't done enough of his leftist agenda.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: I mean you are not socialist enough.

GLENN: That's how they take him on. You did take over the car companies, yeah.

STU: But that's okay. At least it's something.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: You've got to give him credit for that.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: Like we criticized George Bush generally because he wasn't being conservative enough. That doesn't mean it wasn't criticism.

GLENN: When Barack Obama can't get the Olympics done, I mean, this is a debacle. Valerie Jarrett said, "Our intel said we were really close, we were number two. There was only ‑‑ it was down to two of us." They were last place. They were in last place. Their intelligence was wrong on the Olympic committee. Can you imagine how good our intelligence is on Iran?

PAT: It's a little scary.

GLENN: I mean, it's unbelievable. And by the way, it took 48 minutes before they started blaming it on George Bush.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It took an hour and 42 minutes before they started blaming the loss on me.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's amazing.

PAT: By the way, this isn't about the number of Olympics lost. It's about the number of Olympics saved or created. They are still on track. They are still on track.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: So let's give them a break.

GLENN: Okay, thank you, Pat, I appreciate that.

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.
