GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. All right. So the last break I told you that values are what we have to reconnect with, time tested, time honored values, the things that weren't fashionable before. I thought a lot about my grandma's fruit cellar yesterday. People make fun of me for saying, oh, you're storing food? Why are you storing food? You're just one of those crazy people. Really? My grandma had a fruit cellar. Was she crazy? No, she could go to the store. You know, I grew up in a time when there were stores. Grandma still canned soup and fruit and food. She had different values and she knew what value was.

Does anybody else remember their mom going shopping and getting stuff in bigger sizes? Do you remember hearing the phrase, "You'll grow into it." Oh, jeez. I swear to you I never had clothes that fit me. They were always I swear they were either too small or too big. Maybe there was a day in there it was like, perfect size. They never fit me. "You'll grow into it." We didn't hem our pants. Well, at least we didn't hem it and just cut it and then hem it. We hemmed Grandma and Mom would always hem them so they could let them out. So I'd always have that line around the cuff. You know what I mean? When they would let them out, I'd always have a line and it would be like, "Okay." Because they knew clothing wasn't about being fashionable, wasn't about the latest trend. Life wasn't about clothing. As much as I hated it, our parents and our grandparents knew that life was about life, not the little line that went around where they let the hem out.

Over the last year and a half people have made fun of me, and you can continue to. I mean, there's lots of reasons to make fun of me. Really, seriously. My family, you think you could be worse than my family? Please. You should hear my kids. People have said I'm a doomsday guy, Mr. Gloomy, you name it, "Oh, you're crazy." One of my highlights of the year is when I gave one of the most honest pieces of "Here's what you can do as a family." The most honest piece of advice I think I could give you and, oh, was it a joke. Still is. In the office, you should hear. Just last week, "Oh, really? Should I go buy some shoes, Glenn?" I'm going to give the advice again because maybe this time it will carry a little bit more weight. If you have children, just remember your grandparents, remember your mom. If you have children and you know that they are going to grow out of their clothes and there are going to be sales, make you this promise. I can't promise you that we're going to have 1929 style Depression but I also can't promise you that our country will resemble what it is today ever again. I know you won't change. But I can promise you this. Your dollar is at its highest value because they are inflating the money. Inflation is coming. When people are putting their money into treasuries and they're saying I'll take zero gain in the next ten years, I'll take 3% gain over the next three years, when inflation that they report is running at 5%. Inflation probably now is 10%. People will lose anywhere from 2 to 7% on their money just to make sure it's safe. When that kind of stuff happens, you know you're in real, real trouble. You may not have any money to invest. You don't have to. Your investments won't return as much as inflation. So go to the store. You want to invest? Go to the store today. You see a sale? Today, tomorrow, this week, coming sales, you see a sale, you don't just buy it for this year. Buy it for next year. You know your kids are going to use shoes. Buy them for next year. It is an investment. Because inflation is coming. And if you think you can beat inflation, that's great. I don't think you can.

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.
