Government money going towards ex-cons and not veterans?

This morning on radio, Mike Broomhead started off the program discussing Memorial Day and our veterans. There is currently new legislation being passed that will allow ex-convicts the ability to go to college and further their education. It would essentially allow people the opportunity to turn their life around and gain a free education. But at what cost? Well, apparently it's at the cost of some of our veterans.

But what about our veterans who have fought so hard for our freedom? Well, 40 veterans will no longer get the opportunity to attend Yavipai College's aviation program since the Veterans Affairs Regional Office has pulled the plug on the program for veterans.

The Daily Courior published a story discussing this situation and the 40 veterans who are now in a state ready to attend classes they cannot take.

Listen to Mike Broomhead discuss some of this below:

Rough Transcript Below:

Mike Broomhead: I have a stack in front of me of papers of stories I've been looking at all week long. There are six members of the House of Representatives that are trying to start something called the REAL Act. It's about -- it's restoring education and learning. And in this act, the six members -- and I'll read their names to you. Remember these names.

Diane (sic) Edwards from Maryland. Danny Davis from Illinois. Barbara Lee of California. Bobby Scott of Virginia. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut. And Cedric Richmond of Louisiana. They've introduced legislation in this that would reinstate Pell grants, free college for inmates.

So we have members of the United States Congress fighting to get inmates free college. These are people that have committed crimes. These are felons. These aren't people in jail for misdemeanors. These are convicted felons. And they want to give them free college as a way of stopping the recidivism and stopping people from committing crimes again. They believe it will benefit our society.

So we'll do it. I want you to hear what they're pushing for. The people that you and I elect to the United States Congress, especially the House of Representatives. You know, Congress broke into two parts. The House of Representatives is called the people's house. These are the people that we send to Washington, DC, to represent our wishes in the United States government.

How many of you believe this represents your wishes? They are taking away education benefits from veterans. There is an aviation technology program at Yavapai College in Northern Arizona in which 40 veterans, some of them coming as far away as Nebraska, and I'll give you some detail in a moment.

A veteran from Nebraska separates from active duty in the United States Air Force is then working as a contractor making $75,000 a year, as a contractor, for the United States Air Force. Has an opportunity to go to college. Sells his home below market value. Moves from -- to Arizona so that he could attend college with VA benefits. And a month before classes start is sent a letter saying, sorry, the program doesn't exist anymore. When he contacts the VA, his words, he was spoken down to. Treated rudely.

So I want to know if these people represent you. I'm thinking -- I realize this is an emotional time for me. I realize that the backstory for me is tied up in emotion. I've spent the last week corresponding with old friends and with my family and with the men that my brother served with on the night he was killed. Them wishing my family well, praying for us. And I've spent all this time wondering what those men are doing.

Yesterday, what did the members of Eagle Troop, second squadron, third ACR, do yesterday? Those men that were there in Fallujah, Iraq, the night my brother and another guy from Tampa named Mike Quinn were killed, and nine other soldiers were wound in that platoon. How did they spend yesterday, the anniversary of that occurrence? How has their life changed in the last 12 years? Have we as a country been doing for them what's necessary for them to move on with their lives? Have we kept our promises to them and the men and women like them, or are we sending people to Washington, DC, that believe the wishes of the American people is to reinstall free college -- reinstate free college and Pell grants to convicted felons?

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.
