Glenn Beck: Media countdown to Chelsea's wedding

GLENN: Quiet, quiet, quiet. ABC is right now running final wedding countdown: Inside Chelsea Clinton's big day.

PAT: 3, 2, 1...

GLENN: Does the ball come down at the end?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: This is going to be so great.

PAT: It's tomorrow, isn't it?

GLENN: I don't ‑‑

PAT: I think it's tomorrow.

GLENN: I don't want to say. I don't want to say. I would say I don't know but I want to ‑‑ that would sound ridiculously uninformed. I want to just say, I don't want to say.

PAT: All right.

STU: I think it is tomorrow.

GLENN: Shhh. Don't release that information.

STU: I'm just saying I think it is.

GLENN: $3.2 million. Now, they say that that might be because of security. That's the spin on it: Well, it's security.

PAT: I heard $200,000 of it was security.

GLENN: Uh‑huh. And how much of that was being paid for by the taxpayers?

PAT: I think all of it.

GLENN: Oh, okay. All right. So you have that. I don't think that's the big ‑‑ I don't think, when you have $500,000 in flowers, I don't think security is the big piece. The wedding cake is $11,000.

PAT: How much ‑‑

GLENN: Which again, if you want to spend that on a wedding cake ‑‑

PAT: That's great.

GLENN: I am all for it.

PAT: Just don't preach to me that nobody's doing enough, the rich don't do enough in any country, that there's got to be redistribution of wealth. What was it Bill Clinton said just recently about wealth?

GLENN: I was at the Time, I was at the Time 100 thing and he spoke and I was vomiting in the back, but he was speaking and he said that our lifestyle is becoming grotesque and it is unsustainable.

PAT: That is unbelievable.

GLENN: I don't think that ‑‑

PAT: Our lifestyle is grotesque and then you spend $3.2 million on somebody's wedding, your daughter.

GLENN: You can do that!

PAT: That's great, but don't preach to us.

GLENN: How much are they worth? About $100, 150 million if I have one child and it's my daughter and I've got ‑‑

PAT: I still wouldn't spend $3.2.

GLENN: I don't think I would, either, but I can see, I could see that maybe ‑‑

PAT: Well, you know what W spent on Laura's wedding, his daughter Laura?

GLENN: Oh, it was out of control, out of control.

PAT: Out of control. It was silly, it was ridiculous, these rich people.

GLENN: You remember at the time how they reported it, too.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: They reported it as rich, opulent.

PAT: Opulent.

GLENN: Opulent, blah, blah‑blah.

PAT: Ostentatious. $100,000. $100,000. I mean, you know, that's a lot of money, but ‑‑

GLENN: $3.2.

PAT: And the thing was George W. Bush was never preaching to us, don't be spending money; the rich have too much.

GLENN: And look at this. Look at this. Good Morning America is actually, is actually ‑‑ oh, no, they're at Central Park. Okay, I thought they were actually broadcasting from the Clinton ‑‑

STU: They are tomorrow.

GLENN: Are they?

STU: I don't know if it's that show but I know CBS will be broadcasting live from Rhinebeck, New York, the newscast will feature a piece examining the interest in presidential children and commentary from historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. Isn't that delightful?

PAT: Doris Kearns Goodwin? Anybody with three names you know is much smarter than the rest of us.

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.
