'Today is the day that you really need to get out and vote': Glenn discusses the upcoming Republican primaries

Today, voters head to the polls in North Carolina, Ohio, and Indiana to cast their vote in the Republican primaries. Glenn has been particularly interested in the North Carolina Senate race involving Greg Brannon. After his first appearance on the Glenn Beck Radio Program in February, Glenn referred to Brannon has ‘the best candidate’ he has ever spoken to out of the gate. As the campaign season progressed, Glenn became more and more impressed with what he saw. Brannon’s main competition in today’s primary is the establishment-backed Thom Tillis, who is the speaker of the North Carolina House. Whoever makes it through the primary will square off against incumbent Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC).

“It is Election Day… and today is the day that you really need to get out and vote…. We've got to pick the best [candidates] we possibly can,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “In North Carolina, we like Greg Brannon. He's running against…Thom Tillis. You get to pick whoever you decide, but Tillis to the GOP candidate – the one that has all the [Karl] Rove money and everything else. If that's what North Carolinians want, that's what they'll get, but Brannon is this close.”

Interestingly, the polls consistently have Brannon beating Sen. Hagan in the general election, but he has not faired as well against Tillis in the primaries. The most recent poll results from Public Policy Polling (published May 5), however, show the momentum is with Brannon:

PPP's final poll of the North Carolina Republican Senate primary finds that Greg Brannon and Mark Harris are finally picking up some steam… Tillis leads right at the 40% mark needed to avoid a runoff, followed by Brannon at 28% and Harris at 15% with the other candidates combining for a total of 8%. 11% of voters remain undecided so that should give Tillis the breathing room needed to get over 40%, but it doesn't look as certain as it did a week ago… Brannon's support has increased 8 points in the final week of the campaign and Harris' has increased by 4 points.

“So here's the thing. All these guys are polling exactly the same way that Ted Cruz did. And I think part of that is people – are you going to answer a PPP call? ‘Hi, we are calling from the PPP poll.’ What are you going to say? I'm not even going to answer the phone. I don't want to share any of my views with anybody,” Glenn said. “I believe Ted Cruz, the day before the election, was 10 points down… [so] it is not impossible.”

Brannon enjoys the endorsement of FreedomWorks and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) among others, and Glenn explained why does not take the endorsement of Sen. Lee lightly.

“We met Brannon and I think he's good. I think he knows the Constitution inside and out. He's been endorsed by Mike Lee. I mean Mike is excruciating when it comes to the Constitution… So when Mike says, ‘Yes, he knows the Constitution inside and out, and he will defend the Constitution,’ you have a guy that will defend the Constitution,” Glenn said. “I would like to send reinforcements for Mike Lee and Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.”

“Today is the first of our opportunities to get somebody really good,” Pat concluded. “You have a shot to get Greg Brannon today in North Carolina. And then next week, Ben Sasse in Nebraska. And the following week, Matt Bevin in Kentucky.”

“If we could get one of those three, it would be remarkable,” Glenn said. “If we could get all three, it would be just phenomenal.”

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."
