Trucker group plans to shut down D.C. for 3 days… and Glenn supports them?

A group of truckers is reportedly planning to shut down Washington, D.C. for three days straight beginning on October 11 to protest “corruption against the Constitution.” A Facebook page for “Truckers To Shut Down America” has gained more than 16,000 likes, though it remains unclear how many truckers actually plan to take part in the event.

“There's a story here that I would really like to get behind as a show, as a series of shows,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “I think that we should find out, first about these truckers and then stand behind them. This is the number one store on TheBlaze right now.”

According to the group’s Facebook description: “The American people are sick and tired of the corruption that is destroying America! We therefore declare a GENERAL STRIKE on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013! Truck drivers will not haul freight! Americans can strike in solidarity with truck drivers!”

A YouTube video posted by “Kevin Allen” on the “Truckers To Shut Down America” Facebook page, the event is labeled as a general “strike” by the American people against the federal government and its “bulls**t.”

(Warning: Some strong language)

“Facebook provides additional information behind the action, which ranges from universal health care to the I.R.S. Scandal to Benghazi,” Glenn said. He proceeded to read through the objectives of the protest:

“‘Remove the president from office for high crimes of treason and misdemeanors. We want a congressional hearing on Benghazi and seal team 6. Lois learner needs to be put in jail. No amnesty. Remove all Muslims from our government that do not uphold the constitution.’ That's the only one that I kind of think is a little reckless here. But it does say, ‘does not uphold the Constitution.’ I would not make it Muslims. I would make it any person that doesn't uphold the Constitution. ‘Remove Eric Holder from office for crimes against the people and the Constitution. Last but not least, the price of fuel.’ Do you agree with those? Do you get behind those?”

Pat and Stu both agreed that the trucker’s list of demands is not unreasonable. Glenn quickly pointed out, however, the under appreciated power of the trucking industry in this country.

“After September 11, if you remember, Jeffy and Stu, I said, ‘We don't need Department of Homeland Security. We need to see something from the truckers.’ The truckers are the ones moving. They know what's going on. They see what's happening and what's moving across the country,” Glenn said. “And you know, you get the truckers to strike, you stop the American economy. You really do. You stop it.”

“Do you know how many times your grocery store is restocked? Five times a day on average. You stop trucks from coming into grocery stores for three days. There's nothing left. There's nothing left. That's why people, when we talked about food insurance and everything else,” he continued. “We say you don't know how fragile the system is. You stop trucks for three days in this country. You won't recognize your stores because everything is going to shut down because the truckers come in and replenish everything. Yeah, they could have a huge impact. And the ones who are really impacted by the price of gasoline and everything else are the truckers… They work way too hard. Way too hard.”

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."
