GLENN: So it's always a pleasure turning on my computer in the morning and seeing all the things that have been written about me and this time drawn about me.

PAT: And I'll tell you that is not a flattering drawing of you, either.

GLENN: You don't think so?

PAT: No.

STU: You are not that portly. I would actually say you are thinner in real life than that picture.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Which is not something I say normally.

GLENN: No, it's not.

PAT: No, it really isn't. It really isn't.

GLENN: Forget the ghosts and goblins. Why not dress up as someone truly scary this year. Our annual collection of Halloween masks highlights some of the year's most frightening faces. This is from Forbes. And the 100 or the top ten scariest people of 2009, I'm number one.

PAT: Wow. Who's number two?

GLENN: Number two is Rod Blagojevich.

PAT: You are scarier than Rod Blagojevich?

GLENN: Apparently, yeah. We have Steve Forbes on?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Steve? How are you?

FORBES: Well, better than you.

GLENN: Forbes is making me the number one scariest man in America?

FORBES: Well, hey, you know, people always want to be at the top of our list. We just happened to pick the wrong list.

GLENN: Not this one. I mean, isn't it am I spreading too many free market principles?

FORBES: It was a mis it was a miscommunication. We were going to put you on the most admired, most beloved, most reasonable, most enlightened list.

GLENN: Right, right.

FORBES: But we figured if we did that, it would yeah, we wanted to put a mask on you so you wouldn't get killed by the liberals.

GLENN: I mean, here's the competition: Rod Blagojevich, Bernie Madoff, Michael Jackson, David Letterman, Michael Moore, Roman Polanski. You've got a rapist who is nine slots lower than I am.

PAT: That's not good.

GLENN: Not good.

PAT: That seems bad.

GLENN: That's not good. That's not good.

FORBES: Well, as they say, people love to be on our list.

GLENN: No.

FORBES: We just happen, we got you on the wrong list.

GLENN: Wrong list.

FORBES: We normally would put you on the 400 list but we respect your privacy.

GLENN: That's right. So Steve, let me ask you real quick. We were talk

FORBES: By the way, this does show, even though I make you look like, you know, a true liberal, my conservatism, it shows we believe in diversity here.

GLENN: Yes, it does.

FORBES: The universe still has its job.

GLENN: Yes, it does. We were just talking about I've only got two minutes with you. We were just talking about George Soros. He is starting yet another he is going to dump another $50 million into a new antifree market think tank. Steve, help me out with the thinking. Do you know George?

FORBES: I've met him.

GLENN: Okay.

FORBES: But we're not friends.

GLENN: Help me I can imagine. Help me out with the thinking of people who become billionaires, make $9 billion last year in his hedge fund and yet he wants to close the door on everybody else. How does this work?

FORBES: Well, it's typical human nature. Once you've arrived, you want not you yourself but once the

GLENN: Well, I'm on the number one in Forbes, I'm on that list.

FORBES: Well, that's to keep the IRS away. You know, we want to keep the liberals away.

GLENN: Right.

FORBES: But, and in terms of people like George Soros, it gets to one of the phenomenons and that is why do rich people hate capitalism. And they have this misconception that capitalism is about greed where it's about serving the needs and wants of others and a lot of these people feel once they make it, they feel guilty about it and they want to show, oh, no, we're human, we're liberal, we're kind, we don't believe in this dog eat dog blah, blah blah which is a caricature as we know anyway and so they turn against it. And so Soros is not alone in this. Many people who make a turn against it. And even the phrases that we use. For example, people say, well, when you make it, you should give back. Well, you should give.

GLENN: It shouldn't be taken.

FORBES: But give back sounds like you took something that didn't belong to you.

GLENN: Steve Forbes, thanks.


 

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.
