Glenn Beck: Our future is being decided...

GLENN: And that's what needs -- and that's what I want to be frank on. I want to talk to you today about the American dream. I want to ask you what is the American dream. Who are we as people. Our future is being decided right now and it is being decided by special interests, by rulers and kings. They just don't wear a crown anymore. Lords and ladies, dukes and earls. We have entered a European period of America. I will tell you that I wonder, I wonder if in America you can truly be successful anymore. I wonder in America if you can truly, the individual, make a difference. That's what's being decided. Can a man make his own way? Can a man stand up and, against all odds, succeed? In Democracy in America, a book written in the 1800's about America, a European trying to figure out, what is this American experience, how does this work, we've never seen anything like it before in the history of the world. How does this work? The first half of the book talks about the glories and the wonders. The second half of the book talks about there will come a time where the rich and the powerful will try to kick the door closed because they don't want to share, pause they don't want to be challenged anymore, they made it, kick the door closed. The question is: Has that door been kicked closed and if it has, what then? I have a firm belief in the power of the individual. I have a firm belief in the idea of America. That's what America is, an idea, an idea that every man can make his own way, that every man will not be crushed, that every man has a right to fail and will fail. Your life will be more failure than success. Mine has been. Your life will be more stress than happiness. It's not just business. Your -- I tell you now, warning: Have all the children you want. Warning: It will be your greatest heartache, until the day you drop dead, they will be your greatest heartache. Warning: They will also be your greatest joy. It will be the only reason you live at some point in your life. If you truly get it, you'll realize that's the only thing that really means anything is your children. So, you will have to decide: Is it worth it? The answer is "yes."

Is the American experience, is the idea that all men are created equal, that we don't have kings and lords, that there is no system that will crush us, is it worth it? Is it worth fighting for? Is it worth giving the last full measure? The answer is "yes." It is why people raised the flag on Iwo Jima, standing practically on bodies, thousands dead, mowed down the moment they jumped off the boat. Why? For a piece of ground that we would never keep? A piece of ground that meant nothing? No. For the American idea.

We're tearing ourselves apart and there are those that are tearing us apart intentionally. There are people now that are telling, on both sides, the extreme right and the extreme left, It's my way. You do it my way. You don't listen to that person or listen to that person.

The New York Times finally, finally printed the story about how The Coming Insurrection is now a hit, it's a bestseller. It's been out for -- since the summer. Who's been selling this book on communism, on the most outrageous books I've ever read, the most evil book I've ever of read? The New York Times and, the publisher say, Glenn Beck. The New York Times wanted to know why, why would you do that if you say that it's the most evil book ever written? Because I'm not one who bans books! That's what Nazis do. That's what communists do. They tell you not to search, not to seek, not to listen, not to read. I tell you, turn over every stone, read everything you can, ask yourself. Don't ask the bold questions of others before you've asked the bold questions of yourself first. Please, I implore you, know what you believe, know what is true. Question with boldness even the very existence of God, for if there be a God, he must surely rather honest questioning over blindfolded fear. Why? Because you will not stand if you don't know what you truly believe. When trouble comes, you will not stand if you have a simple ton's version of the United States and the flag, oh, I don't know. I go to all of the fourth of July celebrations, I go to the parade. That's not what we are! That's not who we are. We are keepers of the dream. We are protectors of the flame. We are guardians of freedom, freedom to express yourself as you see fit! As long as you're not telling people to kill people, you have a profound honor and responsibility, because more and more people are wondering today, does the American dream even exist? And as you see more and more of this structure coming your way, more and more people will ask, can a man stand on his own, can a man come from nowhere and make it to the top? And the answer is "yes"! As long as you understand that American dream isn't -- has nothing to do with a TV set or a house, it has everything to do, everything to do with the pursuit of happiness and rights that can only come from one place, an ever loving God that loves you so much that he will allow you to experience pain and discomfort so you can understand the sweet, sweet blessings of life.

 

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.
