GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick freak and welcome to Stephanie in Oklahoma City. Hi, instead of, what's up?

CALLER: Hey, good morning. How are you?

GLENN: I'm very good.

CALLER: I was calling. I have so many different emotions watching everything that's happening to our nation right now.

GLENN: I was going to say, name some of them.

CALLER: Oh, just the economy, the lack of -- I see no character or morality or honesty. Those things don't seem to matter anymore. Integrity doesn't seem to matter.

GLENN: We told them that it didn't. We told -- we said that your personal life doesn't matter. We said that what you do doesn't matter. As long as you just deliver the --

CALLER: It does to me.

GLENN: I know it does, but now we're seeing the consequence of that.

CALLER: Right. And I think the thing that just, you know, breaks my heart more is I have two beautiful boys and I'm self-employed. My husband and I both run our own businesses and I just feel like everything that we work for is so much at risk right now.

GLENN: Sure.

CALLER: And for our future. I think what I wanted to know, get your perspective on is what can I do or how can I start to make a difference. I feel almost helpless. But I feel like I'm not willing to see this country fall apart.

GLENN: I will tell you that, Stephanie, to be quite honest with you this is what I spent most of my weekend reflecting on and pondering on, what is it that people can do because the -- I'm reading up on the Weimar Republic, which is the republic that preceded Hitler and it had hyperinflation and it was bad and the key to that destruction, the key to that whole thing ushering in Hitler was when the average person felt that it didn't matter what they did, it didn't matter if they played by the rules, it didn't matter if they had saved their money and done the right things. It didn't matter. Once that happened, the whole thing fell apart entirely. I urge people to read up on the Weimar Republic because we're making many of the same mistakes. And so I have spent the weekend trying to come up with things that I think will matter. But a lot of people will read them because, you know, I think what they want to do is say, "Okay, how do I protect my, how do I protect my investment or what do I invest in or whatever." I'm not the guy to go to for that. I'm the guy to go to and say what is the big picture and what is really important. And you need to look at -- you need to break everything down and look into, how do I protect my family, what am I willing to do to protect my family. What do I do with my finances. But not what do I do with my finances and where do I invest but am I -- do I understand work ethic. My sister called me over the weekend. She's 50 years old. And her husband has passed away a couple of years ago and she's been living on the edge and, you know, financially and she said, "Glenn, I don't have anything. What happens? What happens to me?" And I said, honey, you know what? You are probably in one of the better positions because you're willing to do any job. You're willing to go out and, you know, work in the fields if you have to. There's no job beneath you. And so she will feel an impact, sure, just as every American will. But if you are the good employee, if you are the one who will bust your butt. When unemployment starts to rise, companies generally don't fire the good employees. They fire the bad ones. And it's time for everybody to be a good employee. Bust your butt. Make sure -- as I tell my family, as I tell my kids -- I told my daughter, I said, we live in a very nice town that has a lot of people that work on Wall Street. These people are the people that go to Harvard and Stamford and Princeton and there will be those who are willing now to work at a grocery store or a car dealership or, you know, behind the counter at Starbucks because they need something rolling in. Well, if you've got the 14-year-old kid or the 28-year-old kid who is a total loser and just doesn't care and it's like, whatever, it's Starbucks, man, as a manager of Starbucks, I'm going to fire that guy and replace him with a guy who went to Harvard who's humble enough to be able to do that job and care because he wants to set his life straight.

So one of the things is just do what you're already doing, it sounds like, Stephanie. But then because you have children -- and I know how you feel. I really do. For the first time in my life -- I spent a lot of time this weekend thinking to myself, my gosh, I cannot believe this is real. This is it. I mean, this is -- where we -- this is happening in our lifetime and it's not a joke. It's not hyped for the election. It's not -- this is real. And most people don't realize it yet and when they do, they will be thinking the same things. And the biggest thing that you can do is -- and I know this sounds hokey. Teach your children the Constitution. Teach your children about this country. Teach your children the truth about who we are because somebody needs to teach it. Somebody needs to pass it on. Your children must know who we are and what we stand for as a country because our congress and our President has already lost it. We are -- and most people don't understand this, but as God as my witness, overnight we have become the country of France. We are no longer the country we were four weeks ago. We are already France. And if we come out the other side in any shape, you know, whatsoever that is recognizable, when we get there, what we will recognize is that we have the power, the clout, the economic muscle of France because we have been socialized, and we've got to be able to teach our children on the other side values. What are we? Who are we? Who have we always been and who do we want to be tomorrow? Stephanie?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: Doesn't help you.

CALLER: Well, it does. I just, I just want to know how to change our government, too.

GLENN: Well, you will know that and that will automatically happen when we reconnect with the values of the Constitution. You go out and you find a libertarian. You go out and find a remember can libertarian. You go find a progressive libertarian, any libertarian and you vote for them. You vote for somebody who has an understanding of smaller government. I don't care what party they're there. It's not like just something they adopt for change. I mean rooted in less government. And you do everything you can. You want to talk about not wasting money? Here's dollars well spent. Invest in those campaigns that will actually change the way Washington is done. When you find those people, you invest them.

You know, if I can get -- well, you are from Oklahoma City. So I'll get all spooky religious with you. It says in the scriptures, seek those people out. It doesn't say, "Hey, just vote for them." It says seek them out. So let's seek those people out that are going to do something and then support them. And I don't mean, yeah, you got my vote. I mean if you can afford it, if you can do it, campaign for them. Go out and go door to door. Tell people. Explain to people what's going on. Do your best. It's time for a generation of Americans to learn the truth about their country. Teach the truth about their country to their children and stand up for the truth.

CALLER: Absolutely. Absolutely.

GLENN: Thanks a lot, Stephanie.

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.
