GLENN: Al Gore was on the arm of the White House, MSNBC, and he was on today. He's also on the cover of, what is it, U.S. News and World Report or Newsweek magazine?

STU: Newsweek.

GLENN: Newsweek. The thinking man's thinking man.

STU: He's got an apple falling on his head, which is funny.

PAT: Are you kidding me?

GLENN: Yeah. No, they have Newton's apple falling on his head.

STU: Right. Because the apple and the Newton and then the teachers get apples.

GLENN: The thinking man's thinking man.

PAT: Unbelievable.

GLENN: I'm described as the, what people who aren't thinking

STU: No, wait, I can see here. Madman is how you were described by Time, madman.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And an angry style of American politics. And he is the thinking man's thinking man.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Just in case you are wondering.

GLENN: Okay. So here's what he said. Now put this together with what we have, Andy Stern, the most frequent guest of the White House. 22 times he was in the White House and he said workers of the world unite; we're going to have to have a global system. That's what they're doing. He's saying that basically thugocracy, we will use the politics of persuasion. Wasn't that it?

PAT: No. If the power of persuasion doesn't work, we'll use the persuasion of power.

GLENN: That's right.

PAT: That's the barrel of the gun thing from Mao.

GLENN: And he also talks about that, you know, the free market system isn't working. We just played George Soros saying the same thing, free market system is not working. Now let's listen to Al Gore, another genius, the thinking man's thinking man, on what he says. Listen carefully to this.

VOICE: I have got the vice president on the cover of Newsweek with an apple hitting his head.

VOICE: Oh, my.

VOICE: This is a historical analogy for the economic shift you are arguing for? . What's the)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Listen to this question. He's saying can you give us the analogy to make the argument for this economic shift give me the Van Jones quote that we have. Stu, the Van Jones quote that we were talking about today where he's talking about an economic shift that first we want to say we're going from this gray capitalism to a green market?

STU: Eco capitalism.

GLENN: Eco capitalism. Find that quote for me because you are going to need to hear it after this Al Gore. Here's Al Gore talking now about making an analogy to make the argument about the economic shift that he is proposing. Listen carefully.

VOICE: The crisis is unprecedented but in terms as you think historically, what is the most precise example of our shift from one economic way of doing things to the way you would like to see us do them?

GORE: Well, Alexander Hamilton at the birth of our republic was among those who charted a course to position the United States to lead the Industrial Revolution. I'm not sure it's a precise analogy but, you know, the Declaration of Independence and Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations were both published the same year and they were both based on a similar model. And the meteoric rise of the United States in world history came because of our commitment to democracy, to trust in people both in political choices and in economic choices, with the kind of free market philosophy, with government policies restraining some of the excesses. We made a decision to go full board into that Industrial Revolution. Now we are seeing a completely new, even larger shift because with our global civilization, we still depend on these carbon based fuels that are killing the future.

GLENN: Got it. So stop.

PAT: The future.

GLENN: So here's the thing. The giant rapid growth of the United States and what I contend changed the world was our founding and the belief in people and the belief for them to make and government gets out of the way. You make the decision. But now we're seeing an even bigger shift. A global community, a bigger shift than what the American experience brought. A bigger economic shift into a global community, and we can't rely on these fossil fuels anymore. So now what does that mean? The paradigm, the economic paradigm of trusting you, having you make the decision, you be the driver, government is limited is over. It is over to these people. And this is what the real battle is all about. But they're not making this case. They are making it more and more I shouldn't say that. We are discovering it more and more because we are not journalists, but we are acting like journalists and we are looking into different things. The SEIU stuff I got from an actual journalist. Scott Baker from Breitbart.TV, I asked him, could you look into Andy Stern for me. He is a journalist, and he and Naked Emperor News looked into Andy Stern, and we've got volumes of stuff on Andy Stern now. Now, you tell me.

PAT: The interesting thing about Al Gore, too, is because this New York Times story came out and they are talking about how, you know, he's making nobody knows because he's under no obligation to disclose anymore. He's not a politician. So he doesn't have to disclose his finances. But it's hundreds of millions of dollars. It's pretty clear he's into the hundreds of millions or more now. And so I mean, at least they reported the story. They didn't really spin it in a negative way in the New York Times. And his question was, do you think there is something wrong with being active in business in this country. Well, yes, when you're profiting from the biggest hoax in the world to the detriment of your country.

GLENN: I will tell you this. I am torn. I don't believe that he is genuine. I don't believe many of these people are genuine. If they are as smart as they claim they are, they are not genuine. But I don't have a problem. I mean, look. I get ribbed all the time because I'm just in it for the money. The New York Times will take me on because I'm in it for the money. First of all, I have to tell you I spend more money than I believe any other show in all of radio history.

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: On research and development.

PAT: I'd like to know how saying the things you do makes you money. It doesn't. It probably loses this company money. If we were, if we were purveying nothing but happiness or comedy or having fun

GLENN: I can tell you that

PAT: We would make more money, make more money.

GLENN: I can tell you that for the last two years, because the truth sells or I shouldn't say that. Because the truth attracts listeners, you know, you could say that we're making money. But for a while, before it's recognized as truth, it repels listeners. And for two or three years we were repelling listeners.

STU: And I have absolutely no problem with profit, and I don't care

GLENN: No, no. No, neither do

PAT: Absolutely.

GLENN: That was my point on Al Gore. I have no problem, if you are being engine win.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I have no problem

STU: I don't care about you being genuine. If you want to make stuff and do whatever you want, you can do what you want. But this is an interest sorry, this is an interesting point here. Remember the way he made this money is by venture capital into a firm. But listen to the way the New York Times describes this deal today. The deal, the deal he invested in in a company appeared to pay off in a big way last week. In the next sentence you would think is, a lot of people decided to buy the product that he's selling.

GLENN: Government.

STU: Yeah. When the energy department announced $3.4 billion in smart

PAT: He's affecting policy.

STU: Yeah, he's affecting policy and that policy is what's fueling these companies. It's not actual desire.

GLENN: That is my problem, yeah.

PAT: That policy is going to lead to the climate change bill which is going to be the biggest debacle in American history.

GLENN: This is the oligarchy part of this that people don't understand. There's no fairness here at all. This is the oligarchy. Those with power, those with money and those with influence will influence the United States government to buy things that you don't necessarily want. Look, if you have influence and you can get a supercar built by GM or, you know, Michael Moore says, well, I couldn't get my movies made. But you eventually did, and you found a market for it. Here you're playing to a market of one. You are playing to the government. And the government, as they are doing now, they are selecting the winners and the losers. I got news. I got news for you. Unless you want to sell your soul to the devil, in this system you will be a loser.

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.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
