Glenn Beck: How much is enough?


Some in Glenn Beck's staff prepare for the coming economic doom by stocking up on instant hamburger helper and bottled water from their remote location in Florida...

STU:  I understand that.

GLENN:  Stu and I are having an argument off the air.  He's a big believer on duck sauce and catsup packages are your survival kit.

STU:  I don't have any duck sauce at my house.  I have never said I don't have duck sauce.

GLENN:  You are not American if you don't have duck sauce and hot mustard.  I mean, like lots of packages of them.

STU:  It does feel like that.  At one point there was that and the soy sauce packets.  But my point is we're talking about food storage.

GLENN:  Yeah.

STU:  That, you know, Dan is saying that -- because I started making fun of him saying he only had a couple of days food in his house and I'm like, that's not true because when you get down to a scenario where you need to use your food storage, it's not buffet time.  You don't start eating -- you know, you don't go crazy and spoil yourself.  You are going to minimize your calories, you're going to eat what you need to do to survive, you're going to make sure your child has enough food to survive and be as healthy as possible.  But this is a meltdown situation we're talking about.  This is not a four-course scenario.

GLENN:  Right.  But I believe -- there are two things that I'm advocating that I don't know how to get it across to you.  First of all, first of all -- and that wasn't an elitist thing.

STU:  No, I want you to help me understand.

GLENN:  I don't know how to get --

STU:  I'm confused.  I'm just a normal -- okay, go ahead.

GLENN:  The two scenarios are that, one, there is a meltdown, okay?  At that point, I'm sorry, catsup packages are --

STU:  Well, then describe to me the meltdown.  You mean meltdown as if there's no food in any grocery store anywhere?

GLENN:  Meltdown could be anything from let's say a hurricane -- you know, you lived in Florida, we've all lived through hurricanes.  You know what it's like.  It's madness because everybody goes in and they're like, Cheetos!  And they go in and get all the Cheetos and the water and you go there's nothing, nothing available.

STU:  Right.

GLENN:  So it could be a hurricane.  Meltdown scenario also is, you know, we could -- look, are you telling me that if Osama Bin Laden crashed an airplane into a Saudi Arabian oil field and blew up a lot of the oil fields, we wouldn't see $175 a barrel oil right now?  That shock itself would shove us into the Great Depression.  It would shut -- because it would be such a rapid shock and also everything would spiral out of control.

STU:  I don't know if I agree with that.  The point is we don't need to describe the circumstances to get into it.  You are saying every grocery store has nothing in it.

GLENN:  No, I'm saying that we are in a Great Depression.

STU:  A long scale Great Depression.

GLENN:  Correct.  Now, I don't think that we're headed for the Great Depression but I really, truly believe that our grandparents would slap us across the face.  Why?  You are too young to remember this.  I'm 45 years old.  I remember my grandmother saving the bacon grease.  I remember her pouring the bacon grease out of the pan and keeping it up above the stove in the kitchen.  She kept it there.  My wife yells at me all the time.  She is like, why are you saving bacon grease?  I said, because it was bred in me.  The reason why it was bred in me is because my grandparents taught me that.  Our grandparents would slap us across the face and say, you are no arrogant that this could never happen to you?  It happened to me.  And it was so huge that for two generations those lessons lasted.  And now we've forgotten.

STU:  No, that's significant that that is one sort of -- that's different from the hurricane, though.  That's a completely different subject.

GLENN:  Completely different.  I don't think, being in New York, I don't think we're going to get hit by a hurricane, although I hear global warming is going to make them stronger.  And I also don't think at this point we're going to hit a Great Depression.  Here's the other one.  Either way, if those two happen, you with your catsup packages are going to be hungry.

STU:  I would be -- I am prepared for, certainly prepared for the hurricane.  Absolutely 100% am prepared for that.  You are talking about Great Depression where there's -- I would still think that in a Great Depression there's still people eating.  It wasn't like a -- it's not a --

GLENN:  Yes, except most of our grandparents grew food.

STU:  Right, right.

GLENN:  If you had access to a little bit of green where you could grow something.

STU:  We know the bread lines in the Great Depression were famous but that doesn't mean that no one ate.  It was difficult.  It was very difficult.

GLENN:  Not unlike anything this country has ever seen.  We can't even relate to what -- if you didn't have a grandparent that lived through it, you can't even --

STU:  I did have grandparents that lived through it.

GLENN:  Right.  And they will tell you it was nothing like -- "Oh, well, it's a little slowdown, it's an economic," blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.  I've got seven seconds here to wrap this up and I can't.  Those are two scenarios that are not, you know, catsup package.  But the other part is what we haven't even touched on and we'll get to that here in just a second.  Hang on.

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.
