WATCH: Glenn reveals 'the real Mitt Romney'

Its no secret that the media has spent the last several months going out of its way to dig up everything and anything it could find on Mitt Romney (remember the days spent analyzing the ethics of putting a dog on the roof of a car). Well, Glenn was fed up with the media’s inability to tell Americans the truth about Romney, so he asked his staff at TheBlaze to go out and find the stories about Romney the media isn’t covering.

It’s become more and more evident that Romney isn’t the kind of guy who goes around talking about all the good he has done, so on tonight’s program, Glenn chose to invite some of the people whose lives were changed for the better by Romney, many of whom had never even met him, so that Americans could get the real story on the Republican presidential candidate.

Glenn first sat down with the Nixon Family, whose two sons, Reed and Rob, were paralyzed in a car crash on their way home from a youth event at their church. It was a horrific crash that landed the children in different hospitals, and it took six months for Reed and Rob to complete their rehab and return home. Soon after they got home, Stuart and Sheryl Nixon, Rob and Reed’s parents, received a phone call from Mitt Romney. While the Nixon’s were not well acquainted with Romney, they knew one another through the Mormon community. Romney could have cut a check or sent some presents, but instead he asked to come over to the Nixon’s home. Mitt, Ann, and three of his sons, visited the Nixon’s on Christmas Eve, bringing along gifts for the entire family. It was a special moment, but it didn’t stop there. Romney went on to regularly attended benefits and fundraisers for the boys, and ultimately paid for both Reed and Rob to attend the college of their choice. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this story has never made it in the headlines, but it says more about Romney’s character than a policy or platform ever could.

Watch the Nixon’s share their story below:

Next, Glenn spoke to Bryce Clark, who, like Glenn, struggled with drug and alcohol addictions throughout his young life. Unlike Glenn, Clark was a member of the Mormon Church from birth, and the community would not tolerate such addictions. As it came time for Clark to embark on his mission, he had to meet with Romney, his state president (similar to a Catholic cardinal), to discuss his plans. Clark admitted to Glenn that he lied throughout his interview with Romney, not letting on to his personal struggles that kept him from feeling like he was worthy of going on a mission. That night at 11 o’clock, Clark realized he needed to come clean. Clark went to visit with Romney who did not fault him for his actions, but rather told him that he “was not alone.” Clark credits this moment as one that “changed the paradigm of his life.” It was not easy for him to overcome his addictions and demons, but Romney continued to be a part of his recovery: writing him letters and ultimately attending the blessing of Clark’s first child several years later. While the New York Times did cover Clark’s story, they refrained from publishing or referencing the many hand-written letters Romney had sent Clark over the years.

See one of the letters, and Clark share his story here:

Earlier this week on radio, Glenn previewed the story of Ken Smith, director of Boston veteran’s shelter, whose organization benefited from Romney’s generosity. During his 1994 run for Senate in Massachusetts, Romney visited Smith’s shelter to tour the property and get a better understanding of their financial situation. Smith recalled that Ted Kennedy, Romney’s opposition, stopped by for a quick tour lasting no more than 30 to 45 minutes, but Romney spent 45 minutes with Smith just looking at the organization's books before embarking on a tour of the facilities. There was a great deal of press at the walk through and on his way out, Romney asked Smith what his biggest problem was. Smith told Romney it was a lack of milk, to which Romney responded, “Well maybe you should teach them [the veterans] how to milk cows.” Needless to say, the press had a field day with the gaffe, and the following day Romney called Smith to apologize. The following Friday, the milkman arrived as usual with 7,000 pints of milk, only this time the bill for that milk was half price. When Smith inquired as to why the milk was less expensive, the man would not tell him. Two years later, on the milkman’s last day before retirement, he finally told Smith that it was Romney who picked up the tab for the milk. Again, where is the media’s coverage of a story like this?

Smith explains Romney’s charity below:

Finally, Glenn sat down with Reed Fisher, who lost his home in a fire. Fisher’s son Ethan was friendly with Romney’s son Matt because they lived nearby. In the days and weeks following the fire, the community came to the Fisher’s aid - helping them to remove debris from their property and helping to get their lives back in order. After things began to die down, Ethan received a call from Matt Romney, asking if it would be okay for him to come over and continue to help. Fisher came home a few days later to find four people out in front of his house working on breaking down the trunk of pine tree that had burned in the fire. More surprisingly, Fisher found Mitt and Matt Romney participating in the cleanup effort. Romney was campaigning in the area and chose to take the morning off to help the Fisher’s in their time of need. There was no press coverage of these actions, and it did little or nothing to further his campaign, but that didn’t stop Romney from lending a hand.

Watch the whole interview with Fisher below:

You may or may not have known these stories about Romney, and this may or may not change the way you vote, but it will hopefully change the way you think about this decent man. “Vote for Romney or don’t vote for him,” Glenn said at the end of the show. “It doesn’t matter to me. What I hope you take out of this is: ‘I could do better.’”

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."
