What do Glenn and Kim Jong Un have in common? A lot, according to Chris Matthews

On Friday, Chris Matthew’s unleashed an unusual attack against conservatives – namely, Glenn and Mark Levin – likening their actions to that of North Korea’s violent dictator Kim Jong Un. While Glenn planned to ignore the story, Pat insisted they plays Matthew’s bizarre logic on radio this morning.

“Pat is quite concerned about something that was said a few days ago,” Glenn explained. “And will not remove it from my list of things to do… Every day for the last couple of days, he's been saying this to me. And we just got into the last break and he's like, ‘I will not rest until this is taken care of.’”

“That's right,” Pat explained, “because, Glenn, over four people saw this… This is Chris Matthews on you and Mark Levin being crazy. Well, listen to what he says and then you tell me.”

Matthews argues that Mark and Glenn’s criticism of Speaker John Boehner’s leadership is somehow akin to Kim John Un’s execution of his uncle. Furthermore, Matthews proves his obvious ignorance in regards to the history of the progressive movement in the country.

“Okay. The right-wing is acting as crazy as the guy who just murdered his uncle,” Pat asked. “Calling someone weak is as crazy as Kim Jong Un killing his uncle?”

“First of all, get this. The progressive party was started by a Republican,” Glenn said. “See, the Republican and the Democrat progressives don't get along, but they're both progressives. They don't get along. He has no concept.”

In order to truly live up to the comparison Matthew’s made between Glenn and the North Korean dictator, Glenn figured he probably had to go out and find someone’s uncle to kill.

“I'm going to start killing people's uncles. Cat's out of the bag. I am coming for your uncle, and I am going to kill him today,” Glenn joked. “I like my uncle. I'm going to kill your uncle. I don't know your uncle all that well.”

Unfortunately, Pat doesn’t have any living uncles, which led Glenn to reconsider. Given that it’s the Christmas season and all, Glenn decided it would be best to spare everyone their uncles and kill Jeffy instead.

“I have to kill you at 3 o’clock today, Jeffy. Okay? It's crazy,” Glenn quipped. “That's how crazy I am… and efficient. I'm efficient, crazy, but not a progressive.”

Ultimately, Glenn explained the problem with progressives like Matthews and Speaker Boehner is that they do not understand nor care to understand the needs of the voter.

“The only thing that intrigues me on this is Chris Matthews… is so wrapped up in the idea that power listens to a handful of people that it is a crazy thought to think ‘we’ relates to ‘we the people,’” Glenn said. “But in the progressive world of Chris Matthews and in the progressive world of people like John Boehner, the voter doesn't matter. The voter is somebody that you pull the wool over their eyes. You just use them to get elected. And then you and your cronies get together, and you decide what's best for the people.”

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."
