Glenn Beck: Sun dimmest it's been in 100 years

GLENN: Sure. Scientists are so darn smart, they know exactly when the climate problem is global warming and also when it's climate change. I would argue that, you know, when the temperatures around the globe start dropping, the scientists call it climate change but, you know, what do I know. I'm one of those people who thinks, you know, some mysterious guy up in the sky created the universe. Hello. When obviously the universe created the universe. Anyway, even the almighty scientists have trouble understanding the universe creation of itself sometimes despite what Al Gore says. Here's a story from the BBC: Quiet sun baffling astronomers. The sun is at its dimmest it has been for nearly a century. There are no sun spots, very few solar flares and our nearest star is the quietest it's been for a very long time. Gee, maybe it's going to sleepy sleep. The sun normally undergoes an 11 year cycle of activity. At its peak it has been tumultuous boiling atmosphere that spits out flares and planet size chunks of super hot gas. This is followed by a calmer period. Last year it was expected that it would have been hotting up after a quiet spell but instead it hit a 50 year low in solar wind pressure, a 55 year low in radio emissions and a 100 year low in sun spot activity.

See, this is just crazy talk. I mean, the sun has varying temperatures? I wonder if that affects the Earth at all. I wonder if the people who live on the sun understand that the sun has varying temperatures. Is it because of their SUV? Those damn sun people.

In the mid 17th century a quiet spell lasted 70 years and led to a mini ice age. Oh, that's weird because I always thought it was those, you know, 17th century SUVs that led to the mini ice age. Evidence from tree trunks and ice cores suggest that the sun is calming down after an unusually high point in its activity.

Wait a minute. Unusual high point? This can't be true. Can somebody get Al Gore on the phone? Because I know he's honestly looking for answers. I bet he needs to hear about this. I mean, whatever you do, when you get him on the phone, though, just don't, you know, form this, you know, put this in the form of a debate at all because the debate is over.

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.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
