Glenn Beck: Your stimulus money hard at work


America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: Today, number one in a new series on the March to Socialism.

VOICE: New microscope focus investigative watch, lots of googling, Glenn Beck's eye on stimulus 2009.

GLENN: That's so 2009 sounding, too, isn't it? Eye on the stimulus. Where exactly is your stimulus going? The Obama administration likes to, you know, throw out this claim creating and saving jobs. Hmmm. How are we counting the jobs he saved? Let's not get into that. Otherwise we have to go down the Joe Biden road which, where he tells us it's very complex. Way over his pay grade. They've actually been trying to quantify the amazing benefits of the stimulus package lately. Now they are claiming that they will create or save 600,000 jobs in the next 100 days. Wow. That is hmmm. On their list of the 100 projects that they have done in the last 100 days, because we should just I mean, let's look. The next 100 days, they are going to be so fantastic. What about the last 100 days? Well, you have to dig real deep to find a major error there. You have to take out that microscope and search laser pinpoint focus, flipping through endless pages until you get to project number 1. They say using $27 million of recovery act funding, a public housing development in Washington D.C., the Regency house has undergone a green retrofit. As part of this upgrade the building installed solar panels, the green roof, a rainwater collection system, an energy efficient lighting system. This is I think I may be having an aneurysm. This is what's going to save our country. The water conserving toilets. Just a side note, your Honor. May I approach the bench for just a second? The water conservation toilets don't work! Now, maybe it's just that I'm a large man, but you end up flushing like 400 times! They don't work! I'm sorry. The shower heads, the faucets, everything else, the greening of this building will allow Regency House to save money and energy costs while lessening the impact on the environment. I'd kill a tree right now if I had one near me. The only problem is you can go to the Regency House and check out the progress. Now, I know the White House doesn't expect anyone in the press to actually do it, but somehow or another the skies have opened up and Jack Tapper has, John Jake Tapper has fallen from the sky. I don't care. I love him. You call him anything you want. He's the greatest. He's fallen from the sky. Somehow or another he's like an alien life form in the press corps, asking actual questions. This is what he did. But, well, actually before we get to that, I just want to remind you what they're bragging about here. If they actually did this, okay, you get a new system for collecting rain. If they actually did this, get grass on your roof, new shower heads and faucets. This is what they had to pass immediately or we'll be eating each other. It will be cannibalism within two weeks. Here's what Jake Tapper found. Claims aren't even true. What they found that was only two of the seven promised projects had anything to do with the stimulus package at all. The others had already been done before the stimulus bill had even been introduced in congress. So instead of $27 million in spending, the actual total was, well, it was close. $59,000. $27 million is the amount supposed to be spent on the entire D.C. housing authority, not just this one crappy building with grass on the roof. What was Robert Gibbs' response? Well, he's such a wordsmith. He had to admit that, okay, the number one project on the list of accomplishments was almost total and complete bullcrap. He said, quote, yeah, the mistake on that one... it just took a series of different projects in a cut and paste kind of fashion and put it into one. Oh! Well, that's all that well, if this is number one on their list of 100 accomplishments, let me just say this segment, cottage industry. We're going to be able to do this segment for a very, very long time.

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."
