Occupy Oakland: Kids only have "early death or a life of misery"

The Occupy Wall Street protests are spreading (editor's note: Who could EVER have predicted that could happen) - and the latest from Oakland shows the negativity and doomsday views that exist in the protester's culture. Of course, the media won't show that - they'd rather just label Glenn as a fearmonger and call it a day.

PROTESTER: The system ain't broken. The system is working the way it's worked, the way it's supposed to work, the way he the's been working ever since it was founded on slavery and genocide and all the rest of it. I wanted to read something. I want to read something from the book Basics from the Talks and Writings of Bob Avakian and it speaks to the young people, the youth whose life is stolen, whose future is stolen, who are condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality. I'm talking about the youth whose options in life are ‑‑ have three options: Poverty, prison, or the military.

This is a quote: It is not uncommon to hear these days from government officials and others that only 1% of the population is in the U.S. military, but this 1% is fighting for the freedom of the other 99%. The truth, however, is this: That 1% in the military is in reality fighting for the other 1%: The big capitalists imperialists who run this country, who control the economy, the political system, the military, the media and the other key institutions and who dominate large parts of the world.

"Do you notice education's not in there. Was education in there, university system? Education's not in there again. You know why? Because education, our universities is the hideout for all the revolutionaries. It's the safe house," Glenn said.

"You know, where did the terrorists go from the Weather Underground? Universities."

Glenn also placed the blame for the pessimism of the protesters and the youth on the President and politicians in Washington. He said that they came in with big promises they couldn't deliver on, and most of their policies have only made things much worse than they were in the first place. Now, all thats left are people who are so fed up that they are in the streets calling for revolution.

Glenn said that the youth, many of whom, remember being kids during 9/11, have been raised among a culture that has painted America as the bad guy and the opressor. They have not been taught the Constitution or history, but only that war was bad, and Bush was bad, and Israel was bad.

Glenn warned that people need to wake up and get active because the youth today were not motivated right now to fix the country, but rather have been indoctrinated with the belief that a new system is needed to fix the country.

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."
