GLENN: I'd like to play the audio now of a Democratic senator picked up by a

microphone saying you know, talking about this, again, a Democratic senator

talking about the system that we now have.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

PAT: I believe, I believe he uses the word "Rigged" either four or five times.

GLENN: And who he's talking to, another senator, is also saying, yes, yes.

PAT: Yes, it is, yes, is rigged. The situation is the agenda has been rigged by

the Democrats. And there's a Democrat, Michael Bennet, from Colorado saying it,

and just happened to be overheard with a live mic during a C Span broadcast.

GLENN: Now, this is after the voting of the Food Safety Act. With the Food

Safety Act.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Now, why would it possibly be rigged?

PAT: And he wanted, he wanted some discussion I think is all he wanted. He was

wondering why they weren't talking about it, why and they wouldn't because it's

already been rigged.

GLENN: Well, no, but that's ridiculous to say.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Who would possibly rig something like that?

PAT: Well, we're conspiracy theorists for pointing out that he said it.

GLENN: I don't know why you have to point out that he said it. Who is this

mysterious "He" that you keep referring to?

PAT: Senator Michael Bennet from Colorado.

GLENN: Just like you to come up with a name like that.

PAT: I know. Just pull it out of thin air.

GLENN: Thin air. And then, you know, show the audio. Who could possibly rig it?

Who benefits from the Food Safety Act?

PAT: Hmmm. Where do you begin?

GLENN: Where do you begin?

PAT: Monsanto, I guess?

GLENN: Monsanto.

PAT: That would be a pretty good place to start.

GLENN: Who, who just upped their stock on Monsanto, and I believe it's now the

number one or number two investment of this individual?

PAT: Umm, gosh.

STU: It's probably somebody older? I feel like an older person?

PAT: You feel like not originally from America?

STU: Maybe not, maybe not.

GLENN: I don't know who you're talking about. I have no idea. You conspiracy

theorists are just because through the Tides Foundation which I fund the Apollo

Alliance was born and they wrote the stimulus package, I don't know what you're

talking about. Why would the Food Safety Act be written by any of my minions?

PAT: That's just conspiracy talk. That's all it is.

GLENN: That's all it is.

PAT: It's conspiracy talk.

GLENN: Well, no. I mean, it is conspiracy talk.

PAT: And anti Semitism.

GLENN: To come out and say that the system is rigged.

BENNET: It's nothing about because it's all rigged. I mean, the whole

conversation is rigged, the conversation, the fact that we don't get to a

discussion before the break about what we're going to do in the lame duck is

just rigged. This stuff's rigged.

GLENN: Yeah, it's rigged, isn't it?

PAT: That is that is amazing. That is amazing. I wonder how often MSNBC will

probably hammer that today.

GLENN: I haven't seen that anywhere.

PAT: I bet they play that over and over.

GLENN: Have you seen that?

PAT: I haven't seen it yet but I'm sure they

GLENN: I haven't seen it.

PAT: They are probably just queueing up the tape right now.

STU: They are saving it up so they can run it all midday.

GLENN: Have you seen it on Fox?

PAT: Actually I haven't seen it on Fox, either.

STU: I haven't watched Fox this morning but I'm sure they

GLENN: You have a Senator on the floor talking about how the whole system is

rigged! That's not news to anyone?

PAT: No, and it wouldn't be, either, if Republicans were in the majority right

now in the Senate or we had a, let's say Republican president like George W.

Bush and they were saying that it was rigged, I'm sure that that wouldn't be a

news item, either. I'm sure if it was Lindsey Graham are or John Cornyn saying

this, I'm sure it wouldn't be a discussion.

STU: It seems like all he's asking for is a discussion about what would be

discussed during the lame duck session.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: That's not exactly a high standard he's looking for.

PAT: No, it's really not.

STU: It's really not.

PAT: It's really not, but they didn't even have that before they voted

apparently and so that's

STU: They needed to talk about Boise State, though. They needed to have Boise

State. Nevada won in that game, and the quarterback's tall and he can run

quickly.

PAT: Very, very, very fast.

STU: And he throws it a long ways.

PAT: A long ways according to Harry Reid.

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."
