Are terrorists conducting ‘dry-runs’ to prepare for the next 9/11-style attack?

A horrifying internal memo obtained by a local Tampa television affiliate details an incident some pilots believe may have been a “dry-run” for terrorists plotting another 9/11-style attack.

“Can we talk about the air marshals,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “There's a story that again is being just reportedly local news. Nobody is reporting this in the national news. You can find this on TheBlaze. The pilots' unions are saying there's another ‘dry-run.’”

TheBlaze reports:

The memo obtained by WTSP-TV, which originated at the union that represents pilots for US Airways, reportedly states that “there have been several cases recently throughout the (airline) industry of what appear to be probes, or dry-runs, to test our procedures and reaction to an in flight threat.”

A Sept. 2 flight from Washington, D.C. to Orlando International is the most recent “dry-run” that the pilots are aware of. According to crewmembers, four “Middle Eastern” men caused a disturbance shortly after take off.

Witnesses say one of the men got up form his seat and ran toward the flight deck door. He then made an unexpected left turn and entered the bathroom for a “considerable length of time.”

Meanwhile, the other three men were reportedly seen roaming the cabin, changing seats and opening overhead bins to make a “scene” and possibly with the intention of distracting flight attendants.

Watch the WTSP-TV news report below:

You may or may not remember that a similar situation occurred back in August 2001 – in the lead up to the September 11, 2011 terrorist attacks.

“This happened in August of 2001, and the actor, James Woods, was on the plane with Mohamed Atta, and he's watching this. And he's like, ‘This is a dry run.’ And so he calls over the stewardess, and the stewardess goes and gets the pilot and he said, ‘You've got a dry run going on, on your plane right now.’ They told the FBI, and the FBI said, ‘Oh, nothing to worry about,’” Glenn explained. “That was a dry run. And James Woods, the actor, was the one who spotted it. Now it's happening again.”

The TSA told WTSP-TV that the incident did indeed happen but that it doesn’t require any additional investigation, and the Federal Air Marshal is not happy with that response.

“They’re flat-out liars,” a Federal Air Marshal said of the TSA’s stance.

One marshal, who was put under voice disguise to maintain his privacy, said that when it comes to another 9/11-style attack, it’s no longer a matter of if but when.

“We’re waiting for the next 9/11 to happen, because it’s not a question of if. It’s a question of when,” he said.

“And so you know, the last time that these runs [happened], we only found out afterwards,” Glenn said. “The last time these runs we spotted, it was within a month that we had 9/11… The country is in disarray.”

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."
