'They're not expecting us to talk to each other': Glenn talks about his lunch with Mark Cuban

On Friday, Glenn welcomed Dallas Mavericks owner and businessman Mark Cuban to Mercury Studios for lunch. In the past, Cuban has described himself as an “independent leaning to libertarian,” and while he and Glenn did not see eye-to-eye on everything, they found common ground. On radio this morning, Glenn shared details of his conversation with Cuban and explained why the best thing we can do is simply talk to one another.

One of things Glenn was most surprised to learn about Cuban was his stance on healthcare. While Cuban has spoken openly about his desire to see less government – not more – he is an advocate for a single payer system.

“I had lunch with Mark Cuban on Friday. Spent two hours with him. One of the first things he said to me was, ‘You and I disagree on an awful lot, especially where the President is concerned.’ And I said, ‘Oh, I thought you were a libertarian.’ He said, ‘I am,’” Glenn explained. “And then he talked to me about how he's for universal health care, and he's been to the White House several times and talked to the President… He's very well thought out on these things. [But] I disagree with almost everything that he said.”

When it comes to the NSA and government surveillance, however, Cuban seemed to have a much more libertarian view.

“It was such a bizarre meeting because I really was thrown. I really had heard that he was much more of a small government guy. He's not,” Glenn said. “But when it comes to the NSA, I said, ‘So you're for the NSA spying, then.’ He says, ‘Oh, my gosh. Absolutely not.’ This must be where he deems himself libertarian… He is a guy you could stand with on surveillance… He's also very strong on business.”

Cuban agreed to spend an hour with Glenn on air sometime in the near future, which promises to be a very interesting conversation. In addition to his support of universal healthcare, Cuban also told Glenn he favors the $15 an hour minimum wage recently passed in Seattle.

As Glenn explained, there are a lot of things he and Cuban disagree on, but dismissing someone because opposing viewpoints is playing right into the progressives' hand. They are banking on the fact that people will never actually take the time to have a conversation with one another and realize the common ground they share.

“Now, this is really radical thinking. But it is the thinking that they're not expecting. It is the thinking that that they haven't prepared for,” Glenn said. “Look at Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck. We all know the players that try to keep us apart… What did they assume we would never do? They assumed that we would be so arrogant that we would never talk to one another, find out the truth, and compare notes.”

The same can be said of all Americans.

“They're not expecting Americans to start reaching out and talking to one another. They're expecting Americans to grab their guns and become violent that… That will not work,” Glenn concluded. “So the point is… we could just be against Mark Cuban… or I could say, ‘Mark Cuban is a friend with the NSA’… Let's start making friends. Let's start looking for strange bedfellows that we can unite with. We've got to stop the division.”

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

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.
