Original story below:

Glenn broadcasted Friday’s radio program from Liberty University in Virginia because he was invited to speak the school’s convocation. He admitted he had written and re-written his speech several times over the last couple of days, and he ultimately decided to bring along a few historical artifacts from his collection to illustrate how times are changing.

“I got up this morning, and I thought, ‘Who am I to speak today,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But as I got here last night – and I brought a whole bunch of stuff to share with them – I kind of changed the direction this morning… But it is really pretty much the same conversation that I had with my daughter yesterday at lunch… I told her, you know, the seasons are changing, and we just have to know who we are. And we have to know who we serve. And we have to know who has the answers. And it's not the guys in the long robes.”

Glenn took that stage around 10:30am ET, and his radio program and TheBlaze TV carried a portion of the address. While video of the full speech will be available on GlennBeck.com later Friday afternoon, below is a highlight:

To begin, Glenn explained that Friday’s graduates are “entering a time unlike anything America or the world as ever seen. While the possibilities are truly endless, it will be more necessary than ever to enter the world firmly rooted in principle.

“The times are changing, and if we are going to rebuild our nation and keep people free, then we have to look at the source… And the more political answers that we try to find, the more lost in darkness we become. The more we try to find the answers through science, through technology, the more lost we become,” Glenn told the crowd. “The answers are quiet, the answers are simple. And the answers are here. I brought some things with me that I want to show you.”

Two of the things Glenn brought with him were the personal Bibles of King Louie XV of France and King George III of England. Both books were in pristine condition – as though they had never been opened.

“If you look through this, it is absolutely perfect. I don't think the pages were ever turned,” Glenn said. “What do your scriptures look like? Will someday somebody say, ‘This was my this is my sister's scriptures. Look, they are in perfect condition,’ or will they have been pored over, dog-eared, written in? That tells the story of your life and your path. This is what freed the world. And this came at a great price.”

The graduates at Liberty University today are entering a less than perfect world, and Glenn encouraged the young men and women gathered in the room to be prepared.

“I am asking you: What is it that you believe? Are you willing to give your life? It's real. This is not a textbook. Your classes are over. Life is about to begin. And it's real. What are you willing to do? What is it that means something to you,” Glenn asked. “Expect miracles in your lifetime. Live in such a way that you can demand miracles, expect miracles, call down miracles. And then when they happen, pronounce them, declare them, never be shy. No matter how small or how big, don't explain it away. That is the awesome power of Jesus Christ and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

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."
