GLENN: But there was something else, Pat. What was it?

PAT: The Chris Christie porn.

GLENN: Oh, Chris Christie porn. Oh, boy.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

STU: Again, can I protest again the name? Common sense porn, which you said it, it was your quote.

GLENN: No.

STU: It's a great way to sell that.

GLENN: No, I think Chris Christie is the key here. Common sense, sure, yeah.

STU: It is common sense.

GLENN: But Chris Christie himself, a politician saying the things that he says? I mean, you know, just dingdong, pizza delivery, man. I mean, it is —

PAT: Come in. Oh, hello, Chris.

GLENN: It really, it really is. Go ahead, give me a little bit of this before we take a break.

PAT: All right.

CHRISTIE: We know that there's over five million people trapped and over 10,000 failing public schools around America and I use the word trapped and I use it directly. They are trapped by an educational bureaucracy, they are trapped by a selfish, self interested, greedy school union that cares more about putting money in their own pocket and in the pockets of members than they care about educating our most vulnerable and needy children around the country.

PAT: Thank you. Thank you.

GLENN: Listen to him. Who says this?

CHRISTIE: And by those children, I mean very clearly as you know, more than 50% of those children that we're talking about are in our largest cities and they do not graduate. 50% of the children in our largest cities in America never graduate from high school.

GLENN: That's obscene.

CHRISTIE: Now in New Jersey in the city of Newark we are expending $24,000 per pupil in public money.

GLENN: Holy cow!

CHRISTIE: For an absolutely disgraceful public education system.

PAT: Wow, is that good stuff.

STU: Yeah. One of the things they did in New Jersey, a little bit, might be shady on the details here because I'm kind of remembering it from something I read but basically at one point there were these poor cities that didn't have enough money for their schools and that was the case. That's why they were underperforming. So they started having this sort of New Jersey state fund which all the other communities would dump into and then that money would go only to the poorest schools.

GLENN: You are not saying that it went corrupt.

STU: Not only did it not go corrupt.

GLENN: No.

STU: But also they dumped money. The amount of money they are spending on these schools is a fortune and, of course, it hasn't improved performance at all.

GLENN: Play the one from last week where the teacher stood up who made $86,000 a year and was bitching that she wants to make $82,000 a year at least.

PAT: Yeah, okay.

GLENN: I mean, it was just a — go ahead.

VOICE: You are not compensating me for my education and you are not compensating me for my experience. That's —

VOICE: Well, you know what? Then you don't have to do it. I mean, the simple fact of the matter is —

GLENN: Go to the private sector.

PAT: Yeah, don't do it. Duh.

VOICE: I do it because I like it.

GLENN: The simple fact of the matter is this —

VOICE: Teachers do it because they love it. That's the only reason that I do it.

VOICE: Well, and you — listen. And teachers go into it knowing what the pay scale is.

VOICE: That's right, that's right.

VOICE: Teachers go into it knowing all that.

PAT: Then shut up about it if you knew it.

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. If you go to a private sector, you won't have this argument. You won't have it. Because the market will bear the price and the market will also demand performance. The market won't allow you to have a job forever and ever and ever, no matter how much you suck at it. And the other teachers who don't suck at their job and want to be freed up to be able to teach children? Isn't it weird? They will celebrate you leaving. People don't want to be surrounded by losers. People don't want to be surrounded by people who hate their job who are miserable. People don't want to be trapped and not be able to do what they feel is right. People want to be free. Teachers want to be free. Teachers know what the problems are. Go to the private sector, gang. Go to the private sector and you won't have these arguments. "Oh, well, yeah, you got..." $24,000 per student? In New Jersey?

PAT: That's insane. That's insane.

GLENN: Where 50% don't graduate? What are you doing?

STU: Yeah, hundreds of thousands of dollars per classroom.

GLENN: In classrooms.

PAT: It just shows, throw money at it, doesn't work.

GLENN: By the way, our SAT scores have been going down so far, so fast. Started in the 1960s, 1962 or '63, which is surprisingly the same year that we chased God out of the schools. But the SAT scores, do you know when our SAT scores were doing well back in the 1950s, when things were actually happening? Do you know the class size I think was 36? We didn't seem to have a problem with that. Now it's if you don't have a class size of one on one, you're in trouble. And the teachers are complaining. And look, I get it. I get it. It's not the teacher's fault. It's not just the parents' fault. It's all of our faults. But let's actually talk about real change here. Not just spending more money. Giving, you know, another program or giving — it's not going to solve it. It's not going to solve it. It doesn't work. So let's stop doing it. Let's get out of the insane. And let me again quote James Garfield. The truth will set you free but first it will make you miserable. You don't want to deal with these things. We don't want to have these conversations. But we must. If you want to fix it, you've got to look at the truth. And it will set you free, but the first thing it's going to do is piss you off and make you miserable.

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.
