Hilarious media coverage of 8.24

The media has certainly made some interesting choices n covering the Restoring Courage event. Glenn went over some of the more peculiar coverage of the Restoring Courage event on radio today.

“This is Reuter's. So, this is the worldwide media,” Glenn said in reference to the Reuters report that said, “Beck's Restoring Courage event in an archaeological park Israel has built in an area of Jerusalem it captured in  1967 war.”

“The New York Times took their typical cowardice sort of path and decided to report that there were only hundreds of people there, a complete and total fabrication, a complete and total attempt to discredit, but it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. In the end they are swept into the dust bin of history. They are. Make no mistake, the world is changing and evil always loses.,” Glenn said.

“Now, there were 1700 people because that's -- for security reasons, that's all we could allow into the area. It was really very secure,” Glenn said.

The press did not report on the thousands that watched from a remote viewing location nearby, nor on over 1400 viewing parties in over 60 countries.

The Blaze analyzed the way the media covered the event in Israel:

Ynet News reports that Glenn attracted more than 1,000 supporters, mostly Evangelical Christians from the U.S., at the Davidson Center near the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

They don’t explain that attendance was restricted in the Davidson Center.  Our ticket count there was 1,600 and there were 3,000 more gathered at the alternate viewing site at Safra Square.

….

Ma’ariv, also a Hebrew language site, touched on the rally itself, then referenced some of the protesters that were there, including the verbal scuffle between the Knesset member and Peace Now.

….

Israel’s Channel 2 news began their report “The extremist American broadcaster Glenn Beck …” so you get a sense of how that report went.

Channel 1 news (IBA) reported that American broadcaster, Glenn Beck, gathered people together in a ceremony to support Israel. The report does mention that Glenn’s audience comprise Christians and American Jews but, unlike other reports, does not state that practically all of the participants are Evangelicals. Channel 1 was also the only outlet to mention the many “viewing parties” that were held to watch the events unfold.

Then, a less than flattering Associated Press piece stated: ”The conservative commentator has won fans among Israel’s far-right with his unabashedly pro-Israel, anti-Muslim rhetoric, and 2,000 people turned out to hear him speak next to the compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.”

The rest of AP the article focused mainly on criticism of Glenn’s support for Israel and a rehash of past statements.  And highlighted the 1,200 Facebook fans of the Peace Now protest group.  It failed to mention that Restoring Courage has 32,000 fans on Facebook.

All in all, a mixed media exists in Israel, just as it does here in the U.S.

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."
