GLENN: Well, after Van Jones was outed as a communist Truther, he obviously was immediately disowned by the mainstream media, right? I mean, left, right? Of course, of course he he left the administration. He ended up at the hard corps communist Truther think tank, right?

STU: Definitely, yes, yes.

GLENN: He was able to pick up some office space at the Center For American Progress think tank run by former chief of staff of Bill Clinton, John Podesta and funded by George Soros. That is so weird because it's also the exact same place where the official who gave us the Air Force one Statue of Liberty fly by wound up after he was forced out. So today's czar is not Van Jones who is... no longer a czar. Yes?

STU: Is it Van Jones?

GLENN: No, I just okay. I don't think you guys understand this game. Today's czar loves nature. Don't you. I mean, don't you like to go to the park and lay on a blanket under a tree?

PAT: Yogi Berra.

GLENN: No, I'm not just because it's the word picnic...

STU: Boo Boo?

GLENN: No, it's not Boo Boo. This czar loves nature so much, he apparently wanted to turn the whole country into a giant park free from all those annoying stores and houses and roads and malls and gyms and doctors' offices, gas stations, irritating preschools and, you know, Build a Bears, all of those things. Quoting the czar of the day, quote: The most critical change of all must be a change in goals. All people, rich and poor alike, must come to recognize that being a citizen of a giant smoggy freeway strangled industrial state is not necessary to being happy, healthy and a fulfilled human being. He said, still quoting, a massive campaign must be launched to restore a high quality environment in North America and dedevelop the states. Dedevelop? I don't know about you but I don't know if I want to go a guy who wants to perform the equivalent of breast reduction surgery on the economy in the White House. I mean, maybe it's just me but we've kind of been cozying up to that teat, you know what I mean? Trying to get our food off that capitalism thing. But certainly this guy loves nature so much, and he has no other motivations at all, right? Quote: The need for development presents our economists with a major challenge. What did I say, Stu?

STU: You said the need for development.

GLENN: I'm sorry, the need for dedevelopment presents our economists with a major challenge. They must design a stable, low consumption economy in which there is much more equitable distribution of wealth than in the present one. Redistribution of wealth, both within and among nations is absolutely essential if a decent human life is to be provided to every human being.

STU: I love that, within and among.

GLENN: Among.

STU: Among nations.

GLENN: Among nations. Boy, there's no does anybody completely unrelated. Isn't it weird that Barack Obama is going to be the first U.S. president to chair the security council? Isn't that weird? Oh, and isn't it weird that we're also, you know, going to do that big green thing with the United Nations? Oh, and isn't it completely unrelated. Isn't it weird to have the first president go overseas and give a campaign speech in Europe?

STU: These questions feel rhetorical to me. So I'm not going to answer them.

GLENN: Do you know your czars!

STU: Is it the love child of Al Gore and Al Gore?

GLENN: No, sorry, sorry.

PAT: Is it the love child of Al Gore, Al Gore and Ed Bagley, Jr.?

GLENN: No. Sorry. It is science and technology czar John Holdren.

PAT: Didn't see that coming.

GLENN: Yes, the guy in charge of technology and scientific development supported dedevelopment of our country in a textbook, a textbook written in the Seventies. But don't worry because he sort of kind of disavowed some of his unrelated beliefs on forced abortions and governmental population control. And those are the only ones that anybody wants to ask him about. So we can assume that he's done with the dedevelopment and redistribution of wealth thing, right?

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."
