The war of the internets is a war we must win

In the coming years, there's going to be two internets. One that's controlled by the United States and one that's controlled by China. But don't take my word for it. That idea is echoed by Eric Schmidt, the head of Google. He said at a private event back in September that this will most likely happen sometime in the next ten years.

But what would a world split between Chinese and U.S. internets look like? A world that the experts are saying will be here in less than a decade. You've heard about China's Orwellian Social Credit system, where the government can lock its people out of everything from buying a house, getting a job, going to school, taking a flight or riding public transportation… all because its AI algorithm deemed their behavior out of step with the state. Now some would say… "yeah but that's just in China." Well what happens when Chinese controlled internet blankets half the world? They'd say… "want access to our internet, our economy and our technology… well you gotta play by our rules on our system."

China is currently working on its "Belt and Road" Initiative to effectively recreate the old Silk Road days when China dominated the known world's economy. It currently involves over sixty countries. But whereas the old Silk Road traded in spices and silk, the new one will be dominated by the flows of ones and zeroes. The internet will be the top economic driver going forward, and there is currently a war being raged to see who dominates the flow of information. It used to be a silent war, but the gloves are now coming off.

Forget about all the trade deficit mumbo jumbo. And the tariffs? That's not going to do a dang thing except make things harder for everyone. All of that is smoke and mirrors for what's actually starting right now. President Trump's talk of the trade deficit took most of the media coverage, but the real danger is what he has pointed out about Chinese theft of U.S. company trade secrets. The Chinese government has sanctioned full on state controlled corporate espionage. They're stealing everything they can get their hands on.

It's an all out race to be the global leader in 5G technology.

It's an all out race to be the global leader in 5G technology. 5G will be more than just phone calls and text messages, it'll power literally everything for the next several decades. Cars, homes, medical devices, farm equipment, manufacturing warehouses… everything, and it'll all be wireless. The race to 5G is a national security imperative. It's why we're now seeing the Trump administration make moves that we would have never even dreamed of making in the past. It's why they had a Huawei executive arrested in Canada.

It's why we blacklisted ZTE a few months ago. Both companies are leading China's 5G expansion. These won't be the final moves, it's going to get a lot crazier. This is a war, and - unless you want a Chinese controlled Social Credit system - it's a war we have to win.

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.
