Glenn Beck: Bigger Than ACORN




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

We're about to show you some absolutely stunning video, but here's what I hope you'll keep in mind on this story: Everybody has this story wrong. While it obviously involves ACORN, it's not about, ACORN.

We have been telling you for months now, that, as citizens, we need to be focused on the bigger picture.p>

The mainstream media completely missed the point on Van Jones, too. The left is still saying that I was "over-the-top" on my coverage of a special adviser to the president. Yet, in every case, they have glossed over the facts we presented over and over again to you.

Van Jones was a radical, revolutionary, self-proclaimed communist. Now each of those words came from him. The only time the media even referenced any of those issues was when they tried to equivocate about whether he was still all of those things when he was appointed.

Supposedly he changed his mind on communism. Really? First of all, I never saw him say that he'd disavowed any of it. If anyone in the press can show me his pivot point, I'd love to see it. I never have, but while looking for that, I did see this quote from Van Jones: "I'm willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends."

BuBut let's say he mellowed. OK, how is it, that so many in the media are perfectly fine with a former radical, revolutionary, communist, having the ear of the president of the United States?

Are we so bereft of talent in a nation of 300 million people, that we have to accept a tax cheat as our treasury secretary — as Tim Geithner is? Or a guy who wants to de-develop our economy and redistribute the wealth in and among nations as our science and technology "czar" John Holdren? What about a guy who thinks that animals should be able to have attorneys and who thinks he can nudge the country into vegetarianism as does our regulatory "czar" Cass Sunstein?

I don't accept that.p>

There are thousands of good Democrats, that don't come anywhere near holding any kind of radical views like those I've just mentioned, who are capable of filling all of those key jobs in the administration.

The president said himself, when John McCain accused him of having Marxist friends… responded with this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden, or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO. Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

So far it's not working to his advantage. We're not talking necessarily about Marxism, but we're now expected to believe and accept that the way to help people in the inner cities and to set them on a path of growth and education is to support with tax dollars an organization that has demonstrated its corruption over and over again.

Currently arrests have been made in 14 states — many of them led by state Democrats — for fraud, voter registration fraud, corruption, and the tapes that we've shown you that involve tax fraud, the selling of illegal immigrants into the sex trade, and just good old fashioned prostitution.

Now, the government will make speeches and throw you a bone about cutting off funding or access here and there, but until Republicans and Democrats rise together and demand a full, independent, rigorous investigation that doesn't concentrate just on the local level, but goes all the way to the top — to the power brokers at the highest levels of ACORN and in our own halls of Congress and administration — it will all be a sham.

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."
