9 Questions to Ask Your Dad on Father's Day

Dads --- they've been there through it all. They were there to change your diaper, coach your little league team, watch you get married and everything in between. Dads are the ultimate hero and the original Superman. However, sometimes it feels like a challenge to connect with them on a deeper level. Believe it or not, they have a story of their own apart from being your dad --- and chances are they would love to tell you about it. Here are some questions to spark conversation with your dad and uncover what made him into the father he is today.

What Is a Favorite Memory of Your Dad?

Nothing shapes a dad more than his own father. Chances are, a big chunk of how he raised you was influenced by how he was raised. The memories he has with his own father are priceless, and can only be passed down by telling them to others. So, listen up! These stories are worth remembering, and your dad would probably love to share them.


What Is the Best Advice Your Dad Ever Gave You?

Maybe it was advice on how to get the girl or maybe it was on how to grill the perfect burger. Whatever it was, it's stuck with your dad and played a vital role in shaping him into the man he is today. The best advice his dad ever gave him could end up being the best advice your dad ever gives you.


Who Was Your Childhood Hero?

Your dad --- all big and tall and strong and grown --- used to look up to someone, probably both figuratively and literally. He admired someone in the same way that you probably admire someone today. That person was your dad's idol, his icon and his inspiration. It's definitely worth asking about the person that your father aspired to be when he grew up.


What Were You Like as a Teenager?

It's almost impossible to imagine, but your dad was a teenager at one point too. So, what kind of teenager was he, exactly? The possibilities are endless. Was he a straight-laced, straight-A student? Was he the classic story of teenage-angst? Did he stay out way too late and get into way too much trouble? The answer might surprise you, and make for a hilarious (and hopefully not awkwardly uncomfortable) story.


Who Was Your Favorite Singer in High School?

Imagine your dad cranking up the music in his room and your grandparents screaming at him to turn down that nonsense. Imagine him flying down backroads blaring his favorite tape through his car radio. These things probably happened during his childhood, and chances are history repeated itself with you. Ask about his favorite singer and you may have found the coolest vintage music --- or just an awesome excuse to make fun of him.


What's the First Album or CD You Ever Bought?

This can tell you a lot about the kind of childhood your dad had. Hardcore rock and roll album? Your dad probably wore a lot of leather and smoked a lot of cigarettes. Album full of emotional ballads and love songs? Your dad probably wrote a lot of poetry and went over the top to romance your mother. Your dad might put on a tough act for you now, but music doesn't lie.


Where Did You and Mom Go on Your First Date?

Now you see them as your mom and dad, but at one point your parents were two, young love-birds going out for dinner and a movie, probably writing each other cheesy love notes. Their story is the beginning of your story, so it's worth hearing about! Plus, you might even get some dating-advice, because whatever your dad did to impress your mom obviously worked.


Were You in the Delivery Room When I Was Born?

The day you made your grand entrance into the world. . . where was Dad? Was he tearing up watching the miracle of birth? Or was he in the waiting room trying not to vomit? Or maybe he was just stuck in traffic. (Believe it or not, there was a time when dads weren't welcomed in the delivery room.) Your day of birth is a pretty huge day for both of you, so imagine hearing it from his perspective.


What Was a Favorite Family Tradition When You Were Growing Up?

Ever wonder why every Christmas you have the most absurd tradition that nobody else you know does? It's probably because your father had the same tradition when he was growing up. Traditions are cool because they are passed down and get to influence you the same way they influenced generations before you. Or maybe your dad's favorite tradition is one that died along the way before it got to you. Either way, it was an important part of his childhood and certainly an important part of who he is today.

Here's wishing you and your dad an enlightening and enjoyable Father's Day!

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.
