Mubarak to step down?

Glenn will have more on this continuing story tonight at 5pm ET on FOX News

News broke during the radio show that Mubarak was going to step down today as President of Egypt. The news was, and continues, to unfold, but Glenn gave his initial reactions on radio this morning.

Upon first hearing the news, Glenn said:

“Mubarak, NBC is reporting Mubarak will step down tonight.  This is significant.  Once you have a win, once it ‑‑ this has been my theory, that if they see movement ‑‑ and remember I am not a fan of Mubarak.  I am not a fan of supporting him.  I am not a fan of how we've supported, I'm not a fan of how does a guy make $70 billion for his family, $70 billion in a country where the average person makes $2 a day.  This guy's a dirtbag.  And I hope to God we have not welcomed him into our country.  Anyone who ‑‑ where does he go?"

"Well, let me get through this real quick.  First, this is significant because we will see now what happens in the next month.  If he steps down, where is this country a month from now?  Is it freedom and democracy?  What happens?  Two, where does Mubarak go?  What country is going to take him?  Three, which countries now are set on fire?  Is Jordan next?  Because once you flip one, now it moves to the next one.

"And all the other countries say, we can do it here.  And not only are they empowered in the Middle East, but the revolutionaries, the ones that the New York Times today is finally exposing, they do it in a happy way, that they have made this coalition with the left, with communists, with socialists and Islamists.  The New York Times on A‑1 is finally recognizing it.”

Glenn later added as the news continued to unfold:

“The news from Cairo, Egypt is gigantic."

"The Egyptian prime minister says President Mubarak may step down soon.  NBC is reporting that he is going to step down tonight.  If it goes to the vice president, this is very, very bad for the Egyptian people.  If ‑‑ find out the name of the vice president.  If he steps down and it goes to the vice president, which is what they were talking about yesterday, this guy is the head of the intelligence service.  Not good.  The head of the intelligence service, that's like putting the guy who was in ‑‑ I mean, he's the guy in charge of rounding people up and putting them and torturing them.  Not good."

"We don't know what kind of a transition it will be at this point.  Tonight at 5:00 we are going to have all of the information for you and experts on exactly what to watch."

"I will tell you the New York Times got the story right today.  They announce on the front page that, oh, gee, it looks like the Egyptians are working with communists and revolutionaries and the left and liberals.  And look, it's jihadists working with communists, even though they disagree with each other."

"Welcome to the real world.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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."
