Glenn Beck: Olbermann endorses 9/12 project


MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I am waiting for a decision to be made on where I am going to be on 9/12. I got it down to two things and the idea is what is going to be the you know, we all play a role. So what is the best thing that I can do on 9/12. If you haven't made your plans yet, please make your plans. I'll tell you hopefully maybe by the end of the show today. Otherwise tomorrow. I'm just waiting for some logistics to come through on something and then I'll tell you what I'm doing on 9/12 and I hope that you will join me or other 9/12ers or tea partygoers or where there are a lot of things going on and we'll tell you about them coming up in the next few days as we get closer to 9/12. But I will tell you that again I didn't expect it from Keith Olbermann but if we have can we just play just a little bit of what he said about the 9/12 group?

OLBERMANN: At its core beneficial, calling, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12th, 2001? Not the dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Wow. I mean, he does get it.

GRAY: He gets it. I didn't think he would, but he does.

GLENN: He does.

PAT: Seems to.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: That sounded pretty sincere.

GLENN: And I don't think he said that before when we started it. Remember everybody was trying to make me into a fear monger, that we wanted the fear of, you know, 9/11.

STU: It's so often that we see things in political terms. And when something like that happens, it's very possible that he may have had an initial reaction to it which was negative. But when he actually has seen it in progress and seen it going on.

GLENN: Shows the idea behind it.

STU: Turned around. I think that's cool, though. You've got to

GLENN: It shows that he was thinking and it shows that he was he's open to new ideas and to new, you know, different because he doesn't obviously agree with me on anything but, well, except for the 9/12 project.

PAT: But he's had a chance to watch your show and realize how sincere you are about things and maybe he gets into the spirit a little bit more.

OLBERMANN: But at its core, beneficial, calming, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12, 2001. Not of dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

GLENN: Isn't that I mean, he should have delivered the monologue when I introduced it.

STU: Is it possible that maybe he would come to the event and maybe co host it with you? It would show sort of a

GLENN: You know what? Maybe we should invite him to co host, you know, any event that we might be doing because that would be that would be quite amazing because he can, obviously he can put his, you know, petty partisan "I work for GE who has practically set up a desk next to Barack Obama's desk in the Oval Office."

STU: Well, it's not really practical. Practically the head of the company's in, you know, he's one of the advisors to the president. So I mean, you are right. I guess not practically. The desk location might be different, you are right.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. I mean, he is you know, and he's working for GE which is just such a great, great...

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: And for him to be able to detach from the evil of his gigantic global corporation that is currently being called Enron for its accounting scandal that, you know, come right out of your taxpayer dollars. But it was only $50 billion, you know, and then also spending all of that money on anti mob things because they have billions of dollars to gain in GE healthcare, you know, so they can say, you know, things like, hey, don't worry. At GE we're building a better tomorrow. And for him to be able to detach from that constant pounding of what that giant corporation wants him to say and do to help the president of the United States.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Is

PAT: It's moving really. Again it's moving.

GLENN: It is moving.

PAT: I've been moved. And for because as a rule I think that sheer evil sheerly corrupts those who are around and within it.

GLENN: But here's a sign that, here's a sign that I mean, he's been moved deeply.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: He's deeply been touched.

STU: Personally I think.

GLENN: Anyway.

STU: You could just tell by because I saw the video of this statement.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you could tell by the way he stops, pauses and turns to the camera that he

PAT: When he does that, you know he's being real.

STU: Yeah, that's just natural. That's what people do. That's how they speak. They just suddenly pause and at the exact time it switches and he knows exactly which that's how you do that. Like when I proposed to my wife, I got down on one knee and then I stopped and I looked down and then I turned to the right and I looked right up at her just like that because when you do that, you're giving a sense of sincerity.

GLENN: Well, it's almost Shakespearian the way he

STU: Yeah, I think that is a good reference, Shakespearian.

GLENN: Well, for that relief, much thanks.

STU: Right, yeah. Like that's a you know, can you imagine how great it would be to be able to actually just take a woman that has been writing in as a fan of the show and then go to some hotel and have sex with her and then say for this relief, much thanks, and then have an assistant write and say, I don't ever want to talk to you again; don't ever call or write?

STU: Yeah, I'm not getting the reference here but you are right about people crossing political divides.

GLENN: It's right out of the top of my head but thank you, Keith Olbermann, for the endorsement of the 9/12 project. It was big of you, and much thanks.

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.
