Glenn Beck: Richard Blumenthal- misspoke?

GLENN: We have the Richard Blumenthal thing, and this is why I'm not talking much about the elections today. I'm going to leave that to Bret Baier and Sean Hannity on television and Rush Limbaugh on radio. I'm not talking much about it because I see some of the candidates that are out there and I don't think Richard Blumenthal's going to help us too much. How about you?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: This is what he said a couple of days ago, of course.

BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I served in Vietnam.

PAT: Okay. We learned

GLENN: Wait a minute. Play it again.

PAT: You want to make sure of what he said?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Okay. Here it is.

BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I've served in Vietnam.

GLENN: Since the days I've served in Vietnam.

PAT: In Vietnam. Okay.

GLENN: Now, the problem is he didn't — he received five deferments. So he didn't serve in Vietnam. Here's what he said yesterday surrounded by a bunch of people dressed in VFW outfits.

BLUMENTHAL: Now, on a few occasions I have misspoken about my service.

PAT: I knew it.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: On a few occasions.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Not just once.

PAT: You know that's because he's done it before.

STU: Oh, they have video, yeah, they have tape of other times.

GLENN: On a few occasions. I can understand misspeaking —

PAT: Once.

GLENN: Once.

PAT: And then you'd be careful. If somebody would have said, hey, did you say "In"? Didn't you serve "During"?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Do we need to send you to preposition cool?

GLENN: Well, no, he's only the attorney general. So legalese.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. So on a few occasions I misspoke. That's a pretty big misstatement, but go ahead.

BLUMENTHAL: And I take full responsibility.

GLENN: Stop. For what? For misspeaking?

PAT: Yeah, you don't need to take responsibility if you misspoke, right?

GLENN: You don't need to take responsibility.

PAT: I'm sorry; I misspoke.

STU: Who else is going to take responsibility for you misspeaking? Is there another option other than you?

PAT: If I say crap instead of crumb, I'm going to say, crap, I misspoke. I'm not going to apologize for it.

STU: If you say crumb, I misspoke, then it would really be bad.

GLENN: Right. It would be really bad because then you would have to apologize because you did it twice.

PAT: And then I misspoke twice.

BLUMENTHAL: And I will not allow.

PAT: Oh, he won't allow.

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop, stop. He's getting applause. I misspoke on several occasions.

PAT: Yea! (Applause)

GLENN: There's a brave politician!

BLUMENTHAL: Anyone can take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service.

(Applause)

PAT: No impugning, yeah!

GLENN: Dirt bag politician for president! Dirt bag politician for president!

BLUMENTHAL: And I am proud of it.

PAT: He's proud. Well, I'm proud of him for being proud of it.

GLENN: I'm proud of him for being brave enough to say that he misspoke on several occasions.

PAT: You are not as proud of him as I'm proud that he was also proud that he served in the Reserves but just misspoke about his service.

GLENN: Well, I am not as proud as you are on that.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But you can't compare my pride to your pride on how proud I am of him not letting people impugn those five deferments.

STU: See, I'm mostly proud about the fact that he's proud now only that he's discovered he's proud about being proud after the fact.

PAT: Right.

STU: When he was proud that he's caught. Not that he was proud earlier when he realized it but now that he's caught, he's proud.

PAT: But how proud are you that he's proud of those who actually did serve in their pride in serving in Vietnam even though he's proud of not having served in Vietnam but rather during Vietnam.

STU: Proudly.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: I'm proud that he doesn't know his prepositions.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? Can I tell you something? Whatever happened? I am so, here's — let me boil it down. I am proud to be a part of a group called media that is so proud of their service to our country to make sure to point out that George Bush never flew in Vietnam.

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Never flew anywhere. Was just in the National Guard, you know, actually doing stuff in the National Guard.

PAT: Oh, and he was awful.

GLENN: Oh, he was awful and they went and they investigated and they got those Dan Rather actually was willing to lose his job over it because it was that important.

PAT: How proud were you of Dan? I was so proud. I was proud of Dan.

GLENN: I was proud of Dan.

PAT: Proud of the media.

GLENN: And now I am so proud that they don't give a rat's ass about this guy. That's what I am really —

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Yeah! More dirtbags in Washington.

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.

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."
