Glenn: If you are looking for a shill of the Republican Party, this program is not for you

Yesterday, Glenn got into a debate with a caller from North Carolina who suggested he was “poisoning the well” by criticizing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his Administration’s involvement in ‘Bridgegate.’ What Judy failed to realize, however, is this scandal is just the latest strike against Christie, who has proven to be more of a progressive Republican than a conservative in the years since first winning the New Jersey governorship in 2009.

But Christie is just one of many establishment Republicans Glenn has chosen not to support, for there is little difference between a progressive Democrat and a progressive Republican. Progressivism is a disease that infects both parties, and it time to look for candidates that reflect small-government values.

On radio this morning, Glenn explained that over the course of the he has come to the decision that we no longer support Republican candidates just for the heck of it, and anyone listening to the program who is looking for a shill of the GOP should look elsewhere:

Poisoning the well for 2016? I told you last year: This is the year to decide. This is the year to decide who you are. If you are going to break again because people are going to start telling you ‘Shut up, because we have to vote for…’ Judy and anyone else who feels this way, I want you to listen carefully: This isn't the show for you.

Let me tell you what we do on this show: We tell the truth, as we know it. It's not our job to make sure the Republicans get elected at any cost. We will tell you what we truly believe. We hope, in the coming year, in a more entertaining way to make sure that you are informed and have some fun along the way. But we have never ever been and never ever will be shills for the Republican Party.

But it isn’t just Glenn who is fed up with the establishment. Conservatives in and around the media are becoming less and less willing to toe the Republican line:

Frankly, I think people like Judy are going to be absolutely shocked during the next few years because I can tell you, I am not the only one who's had it with the GOP. Sean Hannity has had it with the GOP. Mark Levin has had it with the GOP. The biggest “shill” of the GOP, as they have always liked to say, Rush Limbaugh, has had it with the GOP. We do this for a living. We've had our fill. So if you're looking for shills for a political party, you're probably going to have to shake talk radio.

Turn on any mainstream media channel and you will hear the same all old regurgitated talking points that you may or may not want to hear. Glenn explained that he will not spend his time focusing on those things:

There are plenty of people who will simply tell you what you want to hear. But on this program, on this show, we don't care about what you want to hear. We'll tell you what we think. We'll tell you what we believe and what we don't believe in the political parties…

What I've said in the past, I hate politics. I've never been interested in politics. I don't think you are either. The only reason I talk politics on the show, is because they're forcing us to talk politics on this show. I don't mean the Zionist master. What I mean is: Washington is so up in our face, in our life, we have to spend time battling them. If they would mind their own business, I wouldn't talk about a donkey or elephant for the rest of my life because I don't care. What I care about: My family, my faith, my God, my day ahead, my plans, my values.

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."
