GLENN: Norah O'Donnell pointed out last night on her Twitter account that Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin were together for a full hour and there was not one mention of Haiti, which I find ‑‑

Pat: Um, um, um.

Glenn: ‑‑ horrifying. Don't you?

Pat: Uh‑huh.

Glenn: It speaks volumes.

Pat: Uh‑huh.

Glenn: That we were together for a full hour ‑‑

Pat: And didn't talk Haiti at all.

Glenn: Not a peep.

Pat: Not a word about Haiti.

Glenn: Now ‑‑

Pat: Does that mean ‑‑ is that hate? Is that just hate for Haiti?

Glenn: I think it is. I mean, she can read into my heart

Pat: It's your hatred of Haiti.

Stu: It wouldn't have anything to do with an interview that was taped during a breaking news event, like, you wouldn't ‑‑ you know, it wouldn't have anything to do with that

Pat: No.

Stu: The fact that the interview was a few hours previous and then, you know, we have news people who are on live and ‑

Glenn: No. Really obviously that had nothing to do with it. It didn't come up because I was concentrating on a bigger picture with Sarah Palin on something ‑‑ this is the first time that I've sat down with an interview with Sarah Palin and I really wasn't talking about current events. I don't know if she noticed that. I think I had a current event here and a current event here, but only as it tied into the conversation so, I wasn't doing a current event kind of interview.

Stu: Well, I assume she's doing that, though, to try to did I reflect from that controversy of hers, you know and it comes down to ‑‑.

Glenn: What is her controversy?

Stu: The Norah O'Donnell controversy.

Glenn: What was the Norah O'Donnell controversy?

Stu: Apparently she was Tweeting about pedicures while Haiti was suffering.

Glenn: Why the hatred there.

Stu: She's going crazy. She's getting attacked about that.

Glenn: Wow.

Stu: You know, I kind of defend her on that, you know, because she's trying to ‑‑ was it stupid for her to go out there and start Tweeting about pedicure attention in the middle of a terrible tragedy in sure. Yes. But, I mean, you know, look. We all make mistakes and I think that she's going to obviously have to come out with a public apology very soon.

Glenn: Yeah. I don't have the blogs, but the good thing is we've just got about ‑‑ oh, I don't know ‑‑ about 8 million times the exposure than a blog does. So, you mentioning that she was Tweeting about getting a pedicure and manicure while Haiti was suffering, she must have said in that ‑‑ in those Tweets, while Tweeting ‑‑ while Haiti was ‑‑

Stu: I think, for instance ‑‑

Glenn: How many times in her tweet did she mention Haiti, besides the fact that we didn't mention Haiti?

Stu: Obviously, you know, she's in a breaking news format. She was talking about Haiti quite a bit, but a lot of people are on top ‑‑ I'm not. I mean, I think, you know, look. I think everyone has their own personal way of doing things and covering events but, you know, the fact that she was Tweeting about pedicures during this event, a lot of people are upset about it and a lot of people are attacking and, you know, I'm personally defending because, do you know what?

Glenn: I'm defending, too.

Stu: I'm defending and I know ‑‑

Glenn: Look. You need to get ‑‑ look. You've got half a million people dead. Sometimes you have to find your own source of power.

Pat: A little beauty in your universe.

Glenn: Yeah. You do. Because there's a lot of horror that is happening and Norah O'Donnell is right there, not on the front lines, not even in the middle lines, or the back lines, but she's there and she's got her ‑‑

Pat: She's talking about the lines.

Glenn: Yeah. She's talking about a lot. You can imagine the stress that she's under, having to talk about that all the time.

Pat: And if your feet don't look good as you're talking about the horrors in this world, how do you even survive?

Stu: And a lot of people are saying it's insensitive because she wasn't even talking about her own pedicure. She was talking about someone else getting a pedicure and it's like ‑‑

Pat: A lot of people are talking about it, a lot of people?

Stu: Millions ‑‑ I assume millions. We're taking a sample here, but millions of people are extremely insensitive for Norah O'Donnell about Tweeting about pedicures while Haiti suffers and that's something that, I think, people have to deal with individually.

Glenn: Well, Hey. We all ‑‑ we all have to ‑‑

Pat: We all make mistakes.

Glenn: Let's open our hearts to Norah O'Donnell and make sure she understands that, Hey, talking about manicures and pedicures while Haiti suffers, I don't assume you hate everybody in Haiti. I mean, you probably ‑‑ maybe you do. Maybe some of the people, but not all of them.

 

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."
