Glenn is sick of the GOP: "Let’s find some people with spines"

After today, it’s safe to say that Glenn has had more than enough of the Republican establishment. This morning on radio he reacted to the Obamacare ruling and the vote from George W. Bush appointed Chief Justice John Roberts.

“I'm tired of the conservative movement.  I'm sick and tired of it.  I am sick and tired of the Republican conservative movement,” Glenn said this morning following the ruling on Obamacare.

Glenn recalled going to CPAC and rallying the crowd behind the problem of progressivism in both parties, while the “power players” in the Republican establishment continue to implement progressive policies when it is convenient for their party.

This is one of the reasons Glenn has partnered with FreedomWorks to organize FreePAC, a gathering of Tea Partiers and people who believe in small government from all around the globe in Dallas, TX this summer. The event occurs the same week of Restoring Love, and as Glenn made sure to point out, it won’t be full of covert progressives.

“I'm sick and tired of it.  They’re cowards.  They're all cowards,” he continued. “They won't come out and tell you what they really are; they won't tell you what they really mean.  They try to convince you that they’re just like you.”

The deciding vote in the Obamacare ruling was made by Bush appointed Chief Justice Roberts. Glenn has gotten heat from the right for referring to George W. Bush as a progressive in the past, but as Stu pointed out this morning, “This destroys Bush’s legacy among conservatives.”

One of the most shocking pieces of today’s ruling is who wrote the decent on this case – Kennedy. Justice Kennedy wrote in the decent that “in our view, the entire act before us is invalid in its entirety.”

“If Roberts voted the other way, the entire thing would have been thrown out,” Stu said.

Pat pointed out that it’s always the guys who look conservative that end up turning these votes. It never happens the other way.

“Let’s find some people with some spines,” Glenn responded. “Are you telling me out of 350 million people, we can’t find nine?”

Glenn rejected the notion that these appointed Justices should not have a litmus test or should be right down the middle on the issues.

Stu agreed, and added that “the Constitution should win in Constitutional battles.”

This shifted the conversation to what Romney’s response will be, and more importantly, to the importance of he being the conservative he claims to be should he win in November. Glenn also reminded listeners how important it is that they are registered to vote, and that they get their friends registered to vote.

“Have you registered to vote yet?” Glenn asked the radio audience. “Have you done that?  “Have you gone to mercuryone.org or FreePAC.org and registered?”

“I'm telling you, this is the freedom movement. I have met with these guys from Freedom Works over and over and over again.  These guys are good.  They are rock solid," Glenn said.

Earlier in the radio show Glenn said this of the healthcare ruling, "This is not a setback, this is a challenge. Believe me; the American people are up for a challenge." Glenn has been encouraging his audience that the time for action is now. If you want to make sure that we do not lose the reason America has always been exceptional, then you need to actively be part of a movement that draws a line in the sand around American hearts. Glenn and FreedomWorks are working hard to organize those who are playing an active role in restoring America - FreePAC and Restoring Love are big part of that.

Stop waiting on Republicans in Washington D.C. to make a difference. Join Glenn and FreedomWorks this summer in Dallas to Restore Freedom and Restore Love.

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."
