Meet the 15-year-old working hard to make an impact in elections across the country

Voters in Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Oregon, and Pennsylvania head to the polls today, and Glenn is particularly interested in the Kentucky Republican primary Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Matt Bevin. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to a remarkable 15-year-old Rhode Island student, Holly Fraser, who has been working tirelessly through her organization, Youth for Bevin, to raise awareness for Bevin’s campaign.

To begin, Glenn asked Holly the obvious question: What brought her from her home in Rhode Island to Kentucky?

Holly explained that she is a homeschool student has been involved in various political groups including Generation Joshua, which seeks to “raise up the next generation of Christian leaders and citizens, equipped to positively influence the political processes of today and tomorrow.” During her time with the organization, Holly campaigned for Ken Cuccinelli’s 2013 gubernatorial run in Virginia, and she was “so disappointed” when he lost.

Following Cuccinelli’s defeat, Holly began looking at other conservative candidates she could support.

“So after that was over, I was looking up other candidates that were going to be running this year because… I don't want this to happen to any other conservative candidates. I had to do something,” Holly said. “So I found Matt Bevin, and he just stood out to me. So the more I learned about him, the more I liked him. Once I began to listen to him, I knew he's one-of-a-kind candidate, and I wanted to do everything I could to help him win.”

That led Holly to found Youth for Bevin, “a national conservative student led grassroots movement for young Americans who stand with Matt Bevin.” According to the group’s website, they “believe young people have a duty to take action and shape the political culture of our nation.”

Holly has mobilized several dozen students from all over the country to make calls and spread the word about Bevin’s campaign. Holly and her mother, Elizabeth, have spent several weeks in Kentucky, and Glenn asked Elizabeth what she believes her daughter is gaining from her experiences on the campaign trail in several races.

“As a mom, what do you think you're teaching Holly by having her do this? Basically we'll back it up. She started this youth for Bevin in November 2013… As a mom, a home schooling mom, that's a wonderful thing to hear. I encouraged her. I said, ‘Go right ahead. We'll incorporate this into your home schooling,’” Elizabeth explained. “This is real life experience. This is changing not just Holly, but all of the students that have come. It's opening their eyes to what it's like to be actively involved, and I don't think a single one of these volunteers would ever become complacent when it comes to what's taking place in our country.”

When you consider everything that is happening with the American education system today, Glenn believes Holly’s story demonstrates the incredible opportunities that can come from homeschooling.

“Look, you may not want your kids going out and campaigning for somebody. You might want your kids to go out campaigning for Barack Obama. Homeschooling allows your kids to find their passion and follow it,” Glenn said. “You know your kids… Washington doesn't know that. Bill Gates doesn't know that… Everything that is being preached to us now as the way we have to do it is enslaving people, is dumbing people down, is putting them in a box, is medically unhealthy for them, spiritually detrimental. You use any label you want. None of it is good.”

“Teach your kids about freedom. Teach your kids to walk with the spirit, to listen to that inner voice, and pursue the things – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he concluded. “Pursuit of happiness kind of makes you think you're never really going to find it. You're never going to arrive there. It is all about the chase and the pursuit. That's what makes us great.”

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."
