Is your evil detector broken?

Below is a partial transcript of Glenn's opening monologue from Thursday's TV show:

I think some people’s evil detectors are completely broken. I don’t know if they were ever installed. What do you say you and I start exercising it, call evil by its name? Anybody, anybody who is working with the terrorists, wants to make sure that everybody who interviews them has to be wrapped up, you know, in the headdress because I’m going to have to stone you if you don’t, I think you’re evil.

Yeah, that seems to be the current way of this administration’s strategy is to partner with some of these people. It might be that we’re on the wrong side of history. From trying to woo dictators with love letters and radical extremists with cushy jobs in foundations of former presidents and even within the Department of Homeland Security itself, America is a disaster waiting to happen, and the world is already on fire.

Something when I was at Fox we were mocked for bringing up, Greece. Unemployment has ballooned now 27%. Police are now clashing with protesters over the murder of a 35-year-old rapper. Normally when we lose a rapper, I’m not like put it on the news, but this one was stabbed twice in the chest by a self-professed member of the Golden Dawn party. You remember them, evil, the new Nazi party in Greece.

For those who maybe are like well, I don’t know, were the Nazis that bad? Yes, evil. It’s so bad now in Greece that thousands are starting to flee to, get this, Turkey. Imagine things are so bad that you think Turkey is the place you ought to be. Turkey is now getting it from both sides, because hundreds of thousands of refugees are coming in from Syria and now from Greece, and the region is coming apart at the seams.

America, I told you earlier this week you’re not on the verge of losing your country. I think you have lost your country. And we have some things that I’m going to show you tonight that I think will show you that, you know, it still can be turned around. But we are on the brink of World War III. If nobody else in the media will tell you, well, tough luck.

I hope I’m wrong. Just pray and hope that this network, you know, five years from now, we can all go boy, were you a dummy. But let’s remember, three years ago I was on Fox telling you the same thing – maybe in five years we look at the Middle East, and it’s all great, and it’s Jeffersonian democracy, and we all have a laugh. But we’re not laughing now, are we?

We are technically already at war with China, Russia, and Iran. It is a proxy war through Syria. The United States is extraordinarily vulnerable in this proxy war. I don’t know if you saw For the Record last night. Please watch that. We have great producers that are putting together this incredible show once a week now. It happens on Wednesday nights.

Last night, we looked at the economic terrorism that struck us in 2008, and we’re only worse off now. What the Fed is doing is tanking the dollar. Instead of stopping quantitative easing, which is printing, digitizing money, they’ve “unexpectedly” – not so much if you understand evil – “unexpectedly” kept it going. It’s unsustainable to continue to print or digitize $1 trillion in cash every year, and any talk of recovery is a joke. This is all smoke and mirrors.

If you can’t reduce it by $5 billion a month, we don’t have an economy, and we’re in a lose-lose scenario. If you stop printing money, the house of cards falls down, and the IMF has said you destroy the whole world, so the whole world is angry at us. Two, if you continue printing money, you eventually collapse, and the whole world is mad at you, and we’re all poor.

The arrogance of the Fed is astonishing. They think they’re so smart that they can tinker with the system and make every problem go away. The Germans thought the same thing after World War I. So did Poland and Romania and Brazil in the 1990s and more recently, Zimbabwe. Just because we’re in the United States of America doesn’t make us immune to hyperinflation.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to me there any adults in the room who are willing to speak the truth to the American people, and the adults that are in the room don’t understand what truth is because their evil detector is broken. We’re going to find it hard to find an exit. I know I get made fun of for, you know, advising people to prepare, but you know, I don’t know how you can survey the news every day and not see any other possible solution other than buckle up, get ready.

It’s getting closer, but it’s going to be okay, because I truly believe that most people are good, and as long as we are good and know where the source of good comes from – evil comes from one place, good comes from another – we will survive. So it’s important that we build ourselves up, tell each other the truth of what’s really going on, but then also find the stories where people are doing the right thing and figure out what it is that makes these people special.

Why are they making a difference? From the six regular people who started the Colorado recall effort to the bikers who started a Facebook page which led to thousands of bikers descending on D.C., to the 19-year-old kid who confronted a thief at Dairy Queen that I’m going to tell you about a little later. I talked to this kid little earlier today, to the mom who turned in her 18-year-old son after she learned that he robbed an 85-year-old vet.

Rough waters are on the horizon. We have to realize that these things are coming, but we’ve seen them before, and we’ve survived. But we prepared, not just temporally, but spiritually as well. Focus on being a better person than you were today. Keep making a difference. Focus on God, because all the so-called leaders are focusing on things like being pen pals with dictators because they think they’re going to solve it. Trust me on this one, only God will solve these problems

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."
