Glenn: Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I have ever seen

During an intense debate on last night’s AC360, Christiane Amanpour exploded on her fellow panelists over the humanitarian crisis in Syria.

TheBlaze reports:

Taking aim at anti-interventionists, the normally very calm Amanpour became visibly agitated and shouted down her fellow talking heads, unleashing on blogger Andrew Sullivan and making an impassioned case for U.S. involvement following the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The initial tension became evident when Sullivan discussed separating emotion from public policy. Breaking her silence, Amanpour made it known that she fiercely disagreed with what her fellow panelists were saying about the complicated international crisis.

“I can barely contain myself at this point. … How many more times do we have to say that weapons of mass destruction were used and as bad as it is to decapitate somebody it is in no means equal?,” she rhetorically asked.

Amanpour went on to talk about the “false moral equivalence” that she feels has overtaken the discussion on Syria. “We can’t use this false moral equivalence about what’s going on right now,” she said. “They tried to do it in the Second World War, they tried to do it in Bosnia, they tried to do it in Rwanda and they tried to do it now. There is no moral equivalence.

Glenn, who first crossed paths with Amanpour during his time at CNN, was appalled to see her try to make the case for going into Syria and, in the process, contradict pretty much everything she’s ever said prior to yesterday.

“So the hapless, discredited and really unwatchable Christiane Amanpour was on CNN last night. She is back with her tail between her legs… She had delusions of grandeur that somebody would actually care what she had to say and she could go on, you know, network television and people would watch and I mean, she's absolutely unwatchable, with anyone with any kind of common sense whatsoever because they know that she is a slanted hack.” Glenn said. “So she suddenly cares about all use of chemical weapons. She suddenly cares about how we must get involved in Syria. There is a reason why I am so unbelievably passionate about this, and she has a reason to be passionate as well.”

Glenn took to Twitter early this morning to express his outrage:

“So here's the thing that I'd like to say about Christiane Amanpour. Christiane Amanpour is the biggest fraud I've ever met, and I've held my tongue since I've worked at CNN, but I'm not going to hold my tongue on her anymore,” Glenn said defiantly. “She is somebody who has a distinct anti‑Israel, anti‑Western approach. And how do I know? Well, let's just say that while we were at CNN, we might have made sure that we could back up our claims in case we ever had to back up our claims. But Christiane was one of the people that was instrumental in making my life a living hell trying to tell the truth about Islamic extremism. We had to go through her stupid Arab or Israeli or whatever her desk was, wherever it was, we had to go through her people and have every single word vetted, of people that were actually teaching people how to hate the Jews on television. We had all the videotapes. We had all the translations, and she made our life a living hell. This woman is so anti‑Western and so anti‑Jew it is remarkable, remarkable that this woman has any credibility at all.”

“Here's what the conversation is really about, Christiane, that you can't seem to understand. Just because you are not for war in Syria doesn't mean you don't care. You want a false equivalence, there it is. I don't care? Of course I care. Can you make people's lives better? Can you do anything to actually help? No. Your kind of help, the kind of help you deliver leads people to the slaughterhouses. See Syria. See Egypt. See Libya. See Tunisia. That's your kind of help,” he continued. “Now, if they happen to start gassing people in Jordan, we have a good guy. We know who the king is. We have a good guy to help. Let's see you get all upset if they start to lob chemical weapons over into Israel. I doubt you say the same thing. You're a fraud.”

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."
