Some candidates we like...

"I'm not a guy that endorses anybody. I will tell you what I think, but I think I'm going to put together a list because I've met several people that I think we need to send to Congress and I would like you to know them. I'm not endorsing them. I have met with each of them. I think they get it," Glenn said on radio today.

Glenn said he doesn't endorse people because 1) people should be making up their own mind and not listening to others and 2) it's hard to get to know someone well enough for Glenn to make that kind of statement of support in a short meeting.

"You just never know about people. You just never know, you know, and you send them into Washington. God only knows," he said.

Nevertheless, there are some good people he wanted to mention:

Ted Cruz - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Texas.

"I want to give you some names of some people that I've met with that I think are very good. One of them is Ted Cruz in Texas. If you're in Texas and you can help Ted Cruz, help Ted Cruz."

Mark Neumann -  Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Wisconsin

"Mark Neumann in Wisconsin, here's a guy who stood up to Newt Gingrich back when Newt Gingrich was in Congress. I think Mark served for temporarily there for awhile. He was on some committees and Newt Gingrich said, Don't you dare vote against me or you'll be off every committee and he voted against him and Newt threw him off of every committee and that night, instead of wallowing in it, he wrote a letter to every member of Congress and said, My only regret is I wasn't on more committees to be thrown off of. I wish I had more committees so I could have been thrown off them so everyone could have seen you stand up for what you believe in and that was the end of his career. He's trying to run again and I believe this guy gets it."

Chris Stewart -  Utah's 2nd Congressional District.

 

 

"Chris Stewart in Utah is a very good friend of mine and one of the most stand-up guys I've ever met. "

"He is a guy that I met about two years ago and I've been trying to hire him. He's a great writer and he's -- he holds the flight record for the Air Force fastest around the world flight for the Air Force. This guy is stand-up, buttoned up, nothing's coming through Chris. He's the guy I don't want to go to Washington because I just -- I love my friend. And I also would like him to work for me."

Daniel Bongino - Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate from Maryland.

"Really great guy. This guy was a secret service agent, left the secret service because he started -- he was in the White House. I mean, he was there and he's watching television and he realizes, man, this is the first guy I've seen that makes any sense. He had kind of gone dead and realized that he hadn't heard anybody tell a bit of truth in a long time and decided that he was going to go back to college. He went back to college, got his economics degree, quit, and decided he was going to -- he was going to run for office to make it. Great guy."

Dan Liljenquist - Republican candidate in 2012 for U.S. Senator from Utah.*

"Dan Liljenquist is a guy who I think really gets it," Glenn said.

Jeff Flake - Arizona's 6th congressional district. Republican party.

After going over some of the candidates he had met and liked, he said, "I'll continue to meet with people and I'll pass it to you. What you do with that information is up to you."

 

 

 

 

*Glenn did made a point to say that while he likes Orrin Hatch and feels like he has done good work in Utah in the past, he feels like Dan Liljenquist is prepared to face challenges facing 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."
