SEIU protesters take over bank HQ

While the left will undoubtedly claim that Stephen Lerner and his plot of economic terrorism has nothing to do with them, SEIU continues to use radical tactics to attack economic institutions. The latest shows a group of SEIU protestors infiltrating a bank in Pennsylvania and disrupting business for a portion of the day. Glenn gave his reaction on video this morning, and tied it back to the larger story of the left’s plan for economic collapse.

“What caused the financial collapse last time?  I will tell you that it was many people living beyond their means is one.  But also the forcing of the banks to give loans to people who didn't qualify, to give no interest, no downpayment, no i.d., no proof of a job, give people those loans.  Who did that?  The banks did that.  For what reason?” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

Pat told the audience it was because the bank received pressure from ACORN and SEIU.

“ACORN would go in and disrupt services at the bank and say you have to do these things or we won't leave you alone and you'll never expand.  You'll never get anything from government, et cetera, et cetera,” Glenn said.

Glenn said that it’s the same thing that Lerner is calling for in the transcript of the video, where union members at the federal, state, and county governments should demand that banks renegotiate loans.

And what if the banks don’t cooperate? The protestors will jam their machinery closed, much like they do in the video below:

“They show up.  They shut the bank down and the bank will receive pressure,” Glenn said.

Pat said, “It's pretty amazing and their little dispute has nothing to do with the bank other than the bank President is on the Board of Directors at the medical plaza where they're striking.”

“They're in the lobby chanting to see the bank President who has nothing to do with this.  The person says we will call the police and they continue to chant, respect our vote, respect our vote, and the police are called and the union representative walks out to talk with the police officer.  Saying we don't want to cause any problems here.  You already have! They chant that they'll be back.  And they will,” Pat continued.

“This is the fear and the scare tactics that you are going to see more and more.  Now what they will do is they will cause these scare tactics and they will force the banks, according to this plan outlined.  You'll see it at theblaze.com.  They will force the banks to refinance all of the state loan, all of the county and the banks will not be able to do it.  He says that's the plan,” Glenn said.

“To bring them to the edge of financial collapse because if we can cause enough chaos, if we can bring them to the edge of financial collapse, we can collapse the system and we can cause another financial crisis.”

‘Now who in their right mind thinks another financial crisis is a good thing?  Who thinks that this government is going to be able to survive?  There are anarchists.  There are communists.  There are even people who claim to be patriots.  ‘I want anarchy! We'll take it down!’” Glenn said.

Glenn said that this is just more of the Van Jones “top down, bottom up, inside out” strategy the left want to employ to enact their goals.

“Republican, Democrat, Independent, it doesn't matter,” Glenn said. “That is not what this Republic is.  We are free men that control our own destiny and our own lives.”

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."
