On August 22nd, 2011, Glenn brought Restoring Courage to Jerusalem with the second event - Restoring Courage: The Courage. From the old train station Glenn was again joined by a huge crowd of people eager to stand with Israel!

Raj Nair kicked off the event with a live pre-show, as he explained what would be going on that night to the GBTV audience. He also explained why Glenn selected the old train station as the venue for the second event, as it represented the expansion of Jerusalem beyond the walls of the Old City. When Glenn took the stage moments later, however he joked, “There are only so many places that can hold this many people.”

The events of the night focused on the events of the Holocaust, with the train tracks of the venue paralleling the train tracks of Auschwitz. The opening prayer also contained many allusions to the events of the 1940s and the attempted genocide of the Jewish people. But even with the sad subject matter, the focus was on those who helped the Jewish people when half the world was out to destroy them - people like Corrie ten Boom and Oscar Schindler.

Glenn then brought out Jon Voight onto the stage to a huge ovation.

“Several years ago I visited Israel and spent time with the victims of suicide bombers, and gave honor to those I would call martyrs, who by sheer miracle, survived barbaric attacks by the Palestinian terrorists in Israel,” Voight told the audience.

“What I witnessed would tear my heart out. Many were without limbs. Many lost children, wives, and husbands. How did we come to a time when the slaughter of innocents, blowing the brains out of babies, even genocide, are acceptable means to a political end? I feel complete outrage at anyone who could make excuses for this barbarism, and I feel complete contempt for anyone who is not intelligent enough to see that this propaganda in the media, painting the Palestinians as poor victims, is capable of destroying the Jewish nation in Israel.”

“We are witnessing a new type of Holocaust, and good people of all faiths should express outrage, and demand the truth be heard: the Palestinian radicals have only one prayer on their lips, and it is to kill and rid every Jew, young and old, from Israel.”

“Tonight, let us pray for courage to stand up and fight against all this antisemitism that has found its way to all the evil-doers. And let us pray for peace - but with the understanding that we will not bend to terrorism in any shape or form for the sake of peace,” he said.

“Very few did what Jon did. We called, I asked, he accepted,” Glenn said as he returned to the stage.

Glenn then began to introduce the film that would be discussed this evening, Kleiner Rudy.

“Last night we talked about love, tonight I want to focus on it’s polar opposite: fear,” Glenn said.

Glenn began to talk about his visit to Poland, where he met a woman who at sixteen years old in the Polish ghetto became one of the “Righteous Among the Nations,” and he asked her how something like the Holocaust could happen. How could people, no matter their language or place in the world, allow something like that to happen?

She told him that while everyone has the seed to be one of the “Righteous Among the Nations”, they must water it with God. She also said the righteous don’t suddenly become righteous, they hold fast as the rest of the world goes over the cliffs.

Glenn said that he later met a man who had been saved by that woman in his New York office. He didn’t want to remember. Glenn, knowing he could never tell someone else what they should do after going through such a horrific experience, nevertheless encouraged him to do so. While Glenn doesn’t know if he will do so, he wanted to the audience to hear the story of someone who had gone back.

He then asked the audience to watch Kleiner Rudy, which tells the story of Rudy Wolff.

The description for the film follows:

Rudy Wolff, an eighty-five-year-old Holocaust survivor, invites his granddaughter, director of the film, to join him in visiting his German birthplace. Once there, Wolff meets his childhood friends, giving us a first-hand glimpse into the after effects of the Holocaust, such as how do Germans deal with their past? How do Jews handle forgiveness and reconciliation? Is it in fact possible to accept, understand and forgive?

Glenn then invited Michelle Teery, Rudy’s daughter and director of the film, Mike Evans, David Brog, and Rabbi David Greenblatt to the stage for a panel discussion.

Following the panel discussion, Glenn was joined by the descendant's of Rudy Wolff, showing the power and impact that saving just one life could have on the world. Benjamin Wenzelberg, a extremely talented young vocalist, sang as the audience participated in a candle ceremony before Dr. Mullins closed the event with a song.

Look for more coverage on these events today and throughout the week.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

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.
