Lib politician: Cops may be shooting all the black kids in Chicago

On last night’s O’Reilly Factor, Bill O’Reilly confronted Illinois State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago), who is pushing a theory she allegedly heard from constituents that Chicago police are the ones gunning down black children in the streets. This contentious interview was just the latest for O’Reilly, who has weathered quite a storm in recent weeks for the conversation he is raising about the problems facing blacks in America.

“So Bill O'Reilly is also being very, very brave. He is taking on the poverty pimps, and he has been saying since the Zimmerman thing that this is an outrage on what is happening and what is being preached,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And he said what we have to really talk about is the decay of the black family. The black family unit, as is the white family unit, the black family unit is just way, way ahead. But our families are disintegrating. And when our families disintegrate, no matter what the progressives want to tell you, the family is the essential building block of all society.”

Earlier this week, O’Reilly played this remarkable audio from Rep. Davis during his Talking Points Memo:

DAVIS: I'm going to tell you what some suspicions have been and people have whispered to me. They're not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There's some suspicion – and I don't want to spread this, but I'm just going to tell you what I've been hearing. They suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.

Her comments, made on a radio show this week, appear to condone a “destructive” rumor that, as an elected official, she should have shot down immediately. Davis, however, has refused to take responsibility for publicizing the irresponsible allegation, which enraged O’Reilly during last night’s interview.

O'REILLY: Joining us now from Chicago is Ms. Davis. Do you regret saying that, madam?

DAVIS: Well, I didn't say it, Bill. I repeated what members of my community have said to me. It is important that people realize that that was not Monique Davis' statement. I was repeating what community members have said to me, over 70%.

O'REILLY: But you didn't say, "But that's crazy and they shouldn't think this because that's not what's happening."

DAVIS: Do I have to say that? Do I have to say that?

DAVIS: Why do I have to say it?

O'REILLY: Here's why you have to say it. Number one, your credibility as an elected official, all right? And number two, people don't know where you stand. Are you buying that, are you not buying that, are you refuting that? I mean, that is destructive to the discourse. I mean, Chicago police…

DAVIS: What I am saying, Bill…

O'REILLY: …As you well know are not gunning down black children. You know that, right?

DAVIS: Well, of - certainly they are not, Bill, but based upon the history of African Americans in this country and based upon the fact that 70% of the murders in Chicago are unsolved, 70% are unsolved, people are wondering what the heck is going on. Certainly Monique Davis, who is a good friend to the police, who support the police, I believe they're our First Responders, and I respect that. But I have the right as a legislator to repeat what my community says to me.

O'REILLY: Not if it's irresponsible you don't. I hear a lot of irresponsible stuff and I don't report it.

DAVIS: Well, I don't think it's irresponsible. They will…

O'REILLY: You don't think it's irresponsible for a person to accuse the Chicago police force of gunning down children without a shred of evidence? You don't think that's irresponsible?

DAVIS: I don't think they said that. I said there was some suspicion that that could be occurring.

O'REILLY: Even if the suspicion – no, that's irresponsible without any evidence.

DAVIS: But you don't know what my response to my community was, Bill O'Reilly, because you were not there.

O'REILLY: It doesn't matter.

DAVIS: I talk to people in private.

O'REILLY: I know what you said on the radio in the full context of what was said.

DAVIS: I repeated…

O'REILLY: You didn't walk away from those comments. You didn't refute them.

DAVIS: I repeated what was said to me on a radio show in Detroit never knowing it would get national attention and perhaps…

“Yeah, who knew? Who knew that it was broadcast,” Pat asked sarcastically. “I didn't know radio signals went into other people's homes. I thought I was just saying it to the host. “

“So this magic box called a radio does what exactly,” Glenn quipped. “So irresponsible.”

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."
