Glenn: I believe we are now in the early stages of World War III

Christians beheaded in Libya. A Jordanian pilot burned alive in a cage. Jewish graves vandalized in France. Everywhere you turn, the news seems to get worse and worse. Sadly, events in Europe and the Middle East echo the build up to World War 2. In a powerful monologue last night, Glenn warned listeners it is past time to wake up. He warned last year "and so it begins", and now it is here. Real danger lies beyond the horizon - what kind of person will you be when everything comes to a head?

Below is a transcript of this segment

The news is disturbing today. On the heels of a Jordanian pilot burned alive in a cage and buried in rubble, 21 Coptic Christians were marched along a beach and beheaded by Islamic extremists.

Over the weekend, also, a 22-year-old Islamic extremist named Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein has committed two deadly terrorist attacks in Denmark, one at a free speech event, ironically, held by the cartoonist who depicted Muhammad’s head on the body of a dog, and the second attack, later that day, he opened fire on a synagogue, killing one. A German city canceled a parade over Islamic terrorist threat, and in France, Jewish graves were vandalized with Nazi graffiti.

This reminds me an awful lot of when I was over in Poland. I have seen this movie before, and this is what I really want to impress on you today. Can you take the full screen please of me over in Poland? This is a picture of me over in Poland at a Jewish cemetery. The reason why I took this, this is one of the only Jewish cemeteries in Poland that remained standing because of that iron fence.

They were going in to destroy the tombstones, the Nazis were, and lightning struck that fence and threw the Nazis into the graveyard. They said that that one happen to be protected, and so they never came back. However, I want to show you the next picture. This is what they did to all of the other cemeteries. This is a wall built out of broken tombstones. In Poland and all throughout Europe, they destroyed the cemeteries and broke all the tombstones. They made roads. They made sidewalks. They made the lion cages, believe it or not, in Poland at the Polish zoo. At the…I think it’s the Warsaw zoo, they made the lion cages out of these.

Just to show you a close-up, there is the blessing and the hands of a blessing on the top of a tombstone that had been broken. We’ve seen this movie before. We have predicted this movie to happen. We are witnessing the rising of evil. Now, let me take you back to the chalkboard that we gave you at FOX—radicals, Islamists, Communists, Socialists work together against Israel, work together against capitalism, work together to overthrow stability. Part two, they’ll cascade, sweep the Middle East, begin to destabilize Europe and the rest of the world. This is all happening.

These are all the things. The caliphate, we predicted. We talked to you, what, a year and a half ago about the Coptic Christians. That’s who was killed on the beaches, and I’m sorry, but they were on the sands of Tripoli. Is that a message to us? The scariest part of everything that is happening around the world is not the evil itself, it is that by large and by most indications, the world is in flat-out denial.

In Denmark, the authorities there said the shooter had gang affiliations. Wait, he’s shooting at the cartoonist guy who depicted Muhammad’s head on a dog, and then he went to a synagogue, and that’s gang-related? Recently, our own president described a clearly anti-Semitic shooting at a kosher deli as random violence of “folks,” yes, just like Fort Hood was workplace violence.

The administration’s latest statement today on the 21 beheadings failed to mention two critical points: One, they were Christians that were beheaded, and the guys who did it were Islamic. The unwillingness to recognize evil will be our undoing.

I have to tell you, this monologue today is a wake-up call for you. I told you last year and so it begins. It is here. I want you to understand, I am not charting a course for you because all of the good ideas, the way we could have solved this, are all gone. I believe we are now in the early stages of World War III, and it’s going to get much, much worse. You need to prepare yourself.

Instead of calling evil by its name and standing against it, we dismiss it, and we must stop. It is totally understandable. I want to give you a theory that I thought of while I was watching The Walking Dead. I don’t know if you’ve watched The Walking Dead at all, but I’m watching this, and I can’t figure out why, other than it’s a really good show, I can’t figure out first why this is 22 million people a week watching it. So, put that into perspective. Nobody’s ever done that on cable television. Since the time that there were three network, you just don’t have ratings like this. So, this is hugely rated. Why is that? Is it our love for zombies?

I want you to think about this with me. I don’t know if this is true. This is my theory. I think we all know that the world is about to come undone. Have you seen Newsweek magazine? They’re talking about when life completely changes, will you be prepared? They’re actually encouraging people to prep now.

So, we all know, there’s something in us that tells us the world is out of control, but I don’t want to watch that. I don’t even want to watch the news most nights. So, why are we watching The Walking Dead? We’re watching The Walking Dead because we know the zombies aren’t real, and so it allows us to connect with what we’re really feeling but allows us to being a safe zone because we know zombies aren’t real.

Zombies are ISIS. Zombies are our economic peril. The rest of the show is what we say is coming, and I want you to know, just like the zombies, evil doesn’t negotiate. Evil doesn’t show mercy. It cannot be persuaded. It cannot be loved. It cannot be moved by logic. It will not quit until you kill it. To think anything otherwise is foolish.

I am not talking to you tonight about a war like the Korean War or the Vietnam War or the first Gulf War or the Afghanistan war or the Iraq war. I’m talking to you about a war where it is either live or die, World War II. That’s what we’re headed towards, and we can keep wishing it away, childishly holding out hope that soaring speeches or some kind of technology or something’s going to beat this back, but it won’t—as if the animals that do this give a flying crap what we say about them.

When I saw the beheadings and everything this weekend, I couldn’t help but think about the Jews that were fenced in like animals behind barbed wire. This is from an HBO documentary, Night Must Fall. I saw it a couple of weeks ago. It’s the only thing I’ve ever watched that give me nightmares. We’re headed there again, guys. This is just the beginning, as you will see in a minute.

I got a ton of pushback from this audience for linking to the Jordanian pilot video on our site. People were very, very mad that their happy Facebook feeds filled with puppy dog videos and Valentine’s Day pics were interrupted with a heavy dose of reality, but here’s the thing, when we suppress the full truth of the evil rising, it cripples the resolve needed to stomp the evil out. It is important for a group of people to actually look it in the eye. Who do you want to be, part of the problem or a part of the solution?

I want to show you just a little piece of this video, and it is disturbing, but after you see it, you will be left asking, “Where are the voices crying out for those who cannot cry out for themselves? Where are the voices demanding urgent and ruthless action against this evil? Where are the leaders willing to lay it all on the line for righteousness? Where is our courage?”

I warn you, it is violent, but I will also warn you continuing to collectively avert our eyes will be our undoing. To fight something, you must first know why you fight, what you’re fighting for, and who you’re fighting against. We don’t know why we’re fighting. We refuse to say who we’re fighting against. What are we fighting for? We barely believe in us anymore.

This is a highly sophisticated enemy. Watch the video. I just want you to watch a couple of things. I want you to notice, look at the slow-motion. Look at the camera angles. This is well-orchestrated—Good God Almighty…Good God Almighty. This was done and orchestrated. They blocked this out. They blocked their shots out.

This is an important part. He is dead, but this is an important part because we’ve seen this movie before. God help us all. The choice of burning to death perplexed a lot of people. They put him out with rubble. They put him out with rubble, and they burn him to death. Why? Because Islam teaches an eye for an eye.

Who was this man? Who was he? He was a pilot who likely dropped bombs on targets. Bombs explode and set things on fire. Bombs reduce buildings to rubble and fall on people—an eye for an eye. That’s what they did. Don’t tell me it had nothing to do with Islam. It has everything to do with Islam, and it’s barbaric.

If you really want to know how evil these people are, think about this, when the Allied forces first came upon the Nazi concentration camps, they were shocked at what they saw. What did they see? They saw burning bodies. They saw the bodies that had been burned and then covered with dump trucks with rubble. Does it looks familiar at all?

Wait a minute, why did the Nazis burn the bodies? We know that they were following Islam. Why did the Nazis burn the bodies? When we first heard of these atrocities, we were in a state of disbelief, and in fact, much of the world says it’s too horrible to believe, it was made up; it never happened, right? Right? It’s just a plot of the Jews. It never happened.

The Germans did not want to show you the scenes. They didn’t want you to ever see them. I want you to show you a scene from Night Must Fall on HBO. Play this, please.

Those are bags of hair. How many haircuts had to be given? How many haircuts had to be given to fill that warehouse with hair? The people who walked in the concentration camp, they went, and they got the people who were living down the road from this. Night Must Fall shows these guys coming in, and they have a spring in their step. They have no idea what they’re entering into. They lived right there, and most of them had no idea.

The Germans, when they left, they tried to burn and bury all the evidence. They trapped people in buildings and set them on fire, which indicates that while they were obviously committed to their plan of death and extermination, they understood that the world would not accept it. Those are the Nazis. Now, let me tell you who we’re fighting today, ISIS. ISIS on the other hand are not hiding. In fact, they are going out of their way to create a dazzling presentation of their evil for the entire world to see. It is not only evil and radicalized, it is psychotic and eerily similar to the Nazis.

After the pilot was burned alive, they bulldozed his body and buried him in the rubble. This too looks eerily similar to what the Germans did. So, now we know who the bad guys are. Who are the good guys? Over the weekend, I read a lot of Churchill, a man with a lot of flaws. He had a cold upbringing. He became a politician, held various offices over the years, but during the 1930s to the buildup of World War II, Churchill wasn’t holding any office.

In the 30s, it’s referred to as his wilderness years because he was chased out by both parties into the wilderness. But as early as 1930, Churchill was concerned about Hitler, and he urged Britain to boost its defense. Why didn’t they have a defense? How did the most powerful Navy ever on the face of the planet not have a Navy by 1930? Easy, Woodrow Wilson told them to destroy it in the name of peace.

So, by 1938, Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Pact and declared peace in our time. This is Neville Chamberlain’s actual letter in response. This is his actual letter. It says your Fuhrer wants peace just like we do. Churchill’s response came in remarks to the House of Commons. He said, “You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.”

1939, war came indeed when Hitler invaded Poland, and in the coming weeks and months, Hitler would invade Denmark and then Norway, and the Nazis invaded France and then Belgium and Luxembourg and the Netherlands. It appeared the Germans were going to march all over the entire world, and Churchill then gives one of his most famous speeches.

He says this: “I would say to the House, as I said to those who have joined this government: I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us an ordeal of the most grievous kind. We have before us many, many long months of struggle and of suffering. You ask, what is our policy? I will say it is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.”

Where was America? Where was America? America was neutral. America didn’t want to get involved. America didn’t want to call it evil. We were unwilling to call it by its name. Germany had bombed Paris, and Churchill alone, alone, not fully believing that he could actually win, he was told he needed 62 squadrons to be able to even stay on par with the Luftwaffe. They had 32.

Churchill gets in front of a microphone, and he says this: “I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our island home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny if necessary for years, if necessary alone.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”

This is the kind of war I am warning you about, not the one where everybody goes off to war, and we don’t hear anything or see anything. This is the kind of war. When he said “and if necessary, we will fight alone,” he was saying that to America. He finished this speech with and if we lose, and we are all starving, which I don’t for a moment believe we will, but this island or a large part of it is subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas armed and guarded by the British fleet, the guys on the boats, they will carry on the struggle until, really important, in God’s good time the New World with all of its power and might steps forth and rescues and liberates the Old World.

They were counting on us, America, as the world and God will count on us again. We are witnessing a repeat of history. There is no mistaking what side evil is on and what evil is demanding. They’re producing it in highly-edited videos for the entire world to see this time. There is no hiding. There is no excuse now for us to say, “Well, gosh, we didn’t know. They were setting children on fire? They were beheading people on the beaches just because they were Christian?”

All the things we have warned about from the dangers of the Arab Spring and to the caliphate to the Muslim Brotherhood taking control in Egypt, radical Islam spreading into Europe, the old hatreds of the Nazis rising again in Europe, evil is here. It’s here. It has not come like a thief in the night, but it has come in the light of the day with the ocean lapping at their heels.

Will we make the same mistake that Chamberlain made? Will we follow in the steps of appeasement? I want you to hear me carefully. I am not suggesting a policy. I am not suggesting a plan. I am forecasting a future, one where we will either be destroyed or become slaves of a totalitarian world that is ruled by the insane, or one day soon we will finally wage war by sea, land, and air, and we will fight in the fields, and we will fight in the streets with all our might that God can give us, and we will wage a war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark lamentable catalogue of human crime. Which future is up to you.

IN PLAIN SIGHT: COVID and mental health

NotesfromPoland.com

A lot of times, people drown in plain sight. Largely because most of us haven't been taught what to look for. We're accustomed to the movie version of a person struggling in the water — flailing their arms and shrieking and gymnastic — but in real life drowning is quieter, something you could see and not realize. It's never been harder than it is now, in 2020, as we're all locked indoors, alone, out of sight.

Every year, an estimated one million people worldwide kill themselves. A death every 40 seconds.

America is in the throes of a suicide epidemic, with the highest suicide rate since World War II. Suicide rates have risen 30 percent since 1999, and the number keeps climbing. There were 45,000 suicide deaths in 2016 alone. In 2017, there were 47,000. Roughly 129 people a day.

In 2018, 10.7 million American adults seriously thought about suicide, 3.3 million made a plan, and 1.4 million attempted suicide. There were 48,344 recorded suicides. That's roughly one person every 11 minutes. And that's 1,171 more people than the year before. The average American knows 600 people. Meaning, the increase of suicide deaths in one year was more than double the number of people you know. And that's just the difference.

Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in this country. It is the second leading cause of death among children, and since 2000, there has been a worrying jump in the suicide rate of 15-to-24-year-olds.

In January, USA Today ran an article about the rising suicide rates, "More and more Americans are dying by suicide. What are we missing?

That was January. Three months before the pandemic sent all of us indoors.

An article in The BMJ, a weekly peer-reviewed medical journal, points that "Widely reported studies modeling the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on suicide rates predicted increases ranging from 1% to 145%." In other words, "We really don't know."

So we can't prove exactly how much damage the pandemic and the lockdowns have caused, or how many suicides there have been this year compared to last year because those numbers will take a while to assemble. But we can get an idea by measuring the scope and prevalence of the conditions that lead to suicide, and they are significantly higher in 2020. Because what's not in doubt is that the pandemic has gravely affected people's mental health.

Affect on Adults

For starters, while suicides tend to drop at the start of pandemics, they quickly increase in response to the conditions of quarantine. It's also true that suicide rates increase during recessions.

A study in Science Advances journal noted that "as the rates of COVID-19 positive cases and deaths increased substantially across the United States, COVID-19–related acute stress and depressive symptoms increased over time in the United States." A CDC report from August found that in 2020 compared to 2019, adults' symptoms of anxiety have tripled and symptoms of depression have quadrupled (24.3% versus 6.5%). Compared to 2018, two different studies concluded that symptoms of depression and "serious psychological distress" are triple the level they were. In fact, the rates of anxiety and depression have been higher throughout the pandemic than "after other large-scale traumas like September 11th, Hurricane Katrina and the Hong Kong unrest." Ten percent of Americans surveyed in June said they had seriously considered suicide in the past 30 days.

French philosopher Albert Camus once wrote that "In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer."

Well, we find ourselves — literally and figuratively — in the depths of winter.

Well, we find ourselves — literally and figuratively — in the depths of winter.

Lockdowns

A number of studies warn about the danger posed by lockdowns. One in particular, published in Lancet, summarizes it well: "Most reviewed studies reported negative psychological effects including post-traumatic stress symptoms, confusion, and anger. Stressors included longer quarantine duration, infection fears, frustration, boredom, inadequate supplies, inadequate information, financial loss, and stigma. Some researchers have suggested long-lasting effects."

The report is very clear about how to minimize the harm of quarantine: Give people as much information as possible, reduce boredom, improve communication, emphasize altruism, and keep lockdowns as short as possible.

Affect on Children

The pandemic and the lockdowns have been especially difficult, and even fatal, for one group in particular, but you might not have heard about it because the media is too obsessed with identity politics to stop for a moment and look at the bigger picture. I'm talking about the most important population: Children.

But they aren't dying of Covid. In fact, children are more likely to die of homicides, drowning, or even fires and burns, than they are to die of Covid. The Academy of Pediatrics reported that, as of December 3rd, children accounted for slightly more than 0% of all COVID-19 cases, and even fewer deaths, about 0.11%, about 160 in total. There are still 15 states with zero reported child deaths. They don't even catch it as often: They account for less than 2% of the total confirmed COVID-19 cases globally. Even here in America, the nation with the highest infection rates, that number is the same: 2%. And, when they do catch it, the overwhelming majority of them experience either no symptoms or mild symptoms. Another recent study found that, compared to the flu, children play a minimal role in spreading Covid-19, and most children who contract it actually get it from their parents.

So they rarely catch it, they almost never die because of it, and they don't spread it. Yet, according to data from the CDC, the rate of children visiting emergency rooms has skyrocketed. Compared with 2019, the number of 5-11-year-olds is 24% higher, while the rate for 12-17-year-olds is 31% higher. This surge is due to mental health reasons.

According to a ton of studies (Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, Here, and Here), during the pandemic, children of all ages have "had high rates of depression, anxiety, and pos-traumatic symptoms as expected in the aftermath of any disaster."

The reality is unequivocal: The lockdowns and quarantines are bad for children. Certainly much, much worse than the disease itself, a point Donald Trump was heckled by the media for making. We waded through a sea of studies, reports, and articles, and the consensus was so consistent that we shifted our focus to looking for studies that said otherwise.

The International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction released a study this month that found that three in four children have reported having depression, and that "the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on children's mental well-being is worrying 60% of parents, according to a survey by parents with primary-aged children and 87% reported that their children were missing school and less than half stated that their children were feeling lonely, which altogether affects their children's mental health and wellbeing."

One study found that children of all age groups "showed more clinging, inattention, and irritability. However, 3-6 year-olds were more likely to manifest clinginess and fear that family members might contract the infection, while 6-18 year-olds were more likely to show inattention and persistent inquiry." Another study found that "In many households, children who end up staying indoors become restless and, in some cases, violent."

Children need predictability... and they need to believe that their parents are in control of things.

Uncertainty, social isolation, and parental angst. Children need predictability, they need activities, and they need to believe that their parents are in control of things. But, as a result of draconian lockdowns, they have spent much more time in front of screens. They are also more susceptible to sleep disruptions, or "somatic symptoms." And they are at a much higher risk for sexual abuse and domestic abuse, and, without school, unable to escape it.

Like us, they'll be dealing with the long term effects of the pandemic and lockdown for the rest of their lives. The difference is, we're more equipped to handle it.

One report refers to the undue harm lockdowns cause children as "collateral damage," adding that "we all have a responsibility to promote the health and well-being of children at home, and to ask questions and fight for service provision in areas where clinicians are not needed to fight COVID-19 but are needed to protect children."

As a society, it is our duty to protect the defenseless, and there is no group of people more defenseless, yet more important, than children.

German philosopher Kant wrote a lot about suicide. His argument can basically be boiled down to two parts:

1) I ought to do my duty as long as I am alive; and

2) It is my duty to go on living as long as possible.

He used the anecdote of civilization as a human body. We must only harm our body if it's necessary for self-preservation. If a toe is necrotic for whatever reason, we amputate it, so that we can preserve our body, our person, as a whole. Suicide, on the other hand, is an act of destruction. It is harmful, not just to the person it removes from humanity, but to humanity as a whole. Each of us plays a role in making sure that body remains in motion. So, when a person resorts to suicide, they are harming the body, the whole, they are depriving society and humanity. They are severing limbs or slicing our arms. They are robbing us of every good that they would bring.

School

Most European countries have closed their schools. According to UNESCO, 91% of children worldwide have been affected by school closures. A study from Bangladesh found that Bangladeshi children were suffering from higher rates of depression, anxiety, and sleeping disorder. In Italy and Spain, one study determined that 85% of parents have noticed negative changes in their children's emotions and behaviors since the pandemic. In England, deaths by suicide among children increased shortly after the country's first lockdown. In Holland, a study "found that young people reported a significant increase in severe anxiety and sleeping problems during the country's lockdown period." Numerous studies from China found that roughly a quarter of children were suffering from the same symptoms. In India, like many other countries, children are spending so much time in front of screens that experts fear it will lead to "psycho-social problems, like lower self-esteem."

Meanwhile, in Sweden, where schools and childcare centers have remained open, the spread of Covid as a result of children attending school is practically nonexistent. Over the next few years, research will show us exactly how Sweden's no-lockdown approach affected their youth.

The research concludes that children should remain in school.

Overwhelmingly — and I mean overwhelmingly — the research concludes that children should remain in school. Academic articles are known for their boring, long-winded, incomprehensible titles, but not these. Like this one: "Mitigate the effects of home confinement on children during the COVID-19 outbreak."

Children need physical activity, which is crucial to minimizing depression and anxiety. Schools provide structure. Schools are a consistent source for children's nutrition, and a lapse in nutrition can have psychological effects. Schools also provide healthcare.

School closures have also put children at a higher risk of domestic violence or sexual abuse, because "school is a safe space where children can report problems and where signs of abuse can be detected."

Children need community. They need friends. While many adults are at home with their kids, most of us are working, and children left alone on workdays are more likely to have anxiety or depression.

Teenagers

According to the CDC, of every demographic, 18-24-year-olds have been most affected, with 75% of respondents in that age range reporting at least one negative mental health symptom. One-quarter said they were using more drugs and alcohol to cope with pandemic-related stress, and another one-quarter said they had "seriously considered suicide" in the previous 30 days.

No prom. No graduation. No church. No dates. No birthday parties — birthdays spent alone. No games. No homecoming. No extracurricular clubs. No sports. No Spring Break — no vacations at all. No funerals, although there are plenty of people being buried.

Teenagers in lockdown are more concerned about their more basic needs. They feel less connected to other people. They are learning less and spending less time on school work. In other words, they are hurting, and bad.

The number of studies that back this up is daunting.

Three papers (Here, Here, and Here) determined that older adolescents suffer more symptoms of depression than younger ones and children. Another study describes the "collective trauma" that the lockdowns have had on teenagers.

The National 4-H Council found that:

●81% of teens say mental health is a significant issue for young people in the U.S., and 64% of teens believe that the experience of COVID-19 will have a lasting impact on their generation's mental health.

●7 in 10 teens have experienced struggles with mental health.

●55% of teens say they've experienced anxiety, 45% excessive stress, and 43% depression.

●61% of teens said that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased their feeling of loneliness.

●82% of teens calling on America to talk more openly and honestly about mental health issues in this country.

Life has always been hard for teenagers, but even before the pandemic, it has been especially rough on American teenagers, who are twice as likely "today to have more anxiety symptoms and twice as likely to see a mental health professional as teens in the 1980s.

Here's how the conversation went on radio:

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH: The politics of COVID-19 is DESTROYING our children youtu.be


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.
