Megyn Kelly confronts Wisconsin Dem

Glenn has a lot of respect for Megyn Kelly, and even moreso after her most recent interview with one of the state senators on the lam from Madison, Wisconsin.

“I think she's one of the best reporters out there.  She is relentless,” Glenn said of Kelly.

In her interview, Kelly said “First of all, people want to know how you can go out of the state not, you know, show up and do your job as a state senator and continue to collect a paycheck.”

“Well, we firmly believe we are doing our job.  Not only are we talking with our constituents every day and returning phone calls and checking on work e‑mails, we're also standing up for what we believe in and what thousands of Wisconsin citizens believe in and the direction that the governor wants to take the state as well.  We're not doing this to stop people.  We all know the vote's going to happen at some point.  We all know that.  We're doing it to call attention to what Governor Walker wants to do by taking away workers rights in the State of Wisconsin,” the senator responded.

Later, Kelly asked, “What do you say to those folks who say, look, we have a Democratic process here and, you know, this governor won election fair and square, as did the Republicans who now control the state assembly and the state Senate.”

“And this is, what we do on this country is we vote.  We have up or down vote.  We saw it on the healthcare bill, right?  Which the majority of Americans did not want, sir, according to the polls and yet we had that vote and it was voted through.  And they look at the Wisconsin state senators, the Democrats and say that's your job to go in there.  And you can vote no and you can rail on the Senate floor about why this is wrong, but you've got to ‑‑ you've got to go vote, sir,” she added.

“Oh, no, and we fully intend on voting on something.  Again this was never to stop a vote because we know the vote's going to happen.  The question is what are we going to be voting on,” he tried to answer.

“The teachers walking out, I read a stat cost $9 million.  Now, what is this costing the state?  Here's a state that is having trouble.  What is this costing the state just to police the capitol?  What is this costing to keep the capitol clean?  With, you know, hippie love‑ins in the middle of the capitol?” Glenn said.

“Can you imagine?  If the Tea Party would have done that?  And the reason why they don't is because they have respect for the process.”

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."
