Beck for president? Glenn casually hints at possible presidential run in 8-12 years

Was he just testing us to see if we were listening?

Or did Glenn really say he might run for president of the United States in 8-12 years?

Watch the clip below and see for yourself.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: So we were talking, and Pat said he had the answer on how to solve the ISIS thing if he were president of the United States.

PAT: Yes, I'd go with the Marcus Luttrell plan.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Which is?

PAT: Which is Marcus gathers about 300 of his closest, most personal SEAL friends. You untie their hands. You remove all the rules of engagement. You say, "We're not going to pay a bit of attention to what you do. You just go." And they kill every single member of ISIS. You give them six months, and they kill every member --

GLENN: Now, Stu laughs at that.

STU: That's awesome.

GLENN: You're not laughing -- because that's exactly what I would do.

STU: Yeah, I mean, I don't imagine -- it certainly wouldn't happen under this administration.

PAT: No, it would not.

STU: Or probably, I mean, as far as no restrictions and we won't pay attention --

GLENN: I've told you guys this, I don't think I've said this on the air. In eight to 12 years, I'm thinking about running for president of the United States.

STU: Oh, yeah?

PAT: In eight to 12?

GLENN: In eight to 12.

PAT: You're going to be pretty old at 12.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: You might want to make it eight.

GLENN: Pretty old in 12? I'll be in my 60s.

STU: Yeah, that's actually pretty young for the Democrats.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You think you can run as a Democrat because you'd be like the youthful alternative?

PAT: Wouldn't that be funny?

GLENN: For the love of Pete...

PAT: You would guarantee a Republican victory if you run as a Democrat.

STU: Yeah, that's true.

PAT: This is a really good idea. I say we investigate this. That's not what you wanted to hear.

GLENN: That's not what I wanted to hear.

JEFFY: Eight years. Let's get that done.

PAT: Yeah. You'll run in eight to 12 years. And?

GLENN: Then if there's anything left, that's when we will unleash Marcus and his friends. If there's anything left and we have eight years of -- of this --

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: -- that's when we just unleash -- we unleash every SEAL. We dig them up. We dig them up and we restart their hearts.

STU: I think if you wait eight years with ISIS, they'll have about a quarter of the globe.

GLENN: Yeah, it will be too late. But. Honestly this weekend I was thinking, "If I was president, what would I do?" And that was part of it. But the other part is, we have to find a way to short-circuit their prophecy. And this is why when anybody says, "This has nothing to do with Islam," you have to impress on them, it has everything to do with Islam. And unless you understand that --

PAT: Especially to them.

GLENN: Yeah, you'll not be able to defeat them. If you keep denying this has anything to do with Islam, you will continue to miss -- like their latest video that talks all about the prophecy.

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.
