GLENN: That would be crazy, try to sell our book. I mean, jeez.

PAT: Yeah, you know what?

GLENN: What?

PAT: I've been listening to you bad mouth Michael Moore's new movie, Capitalism: A Love Story, for months now. I'm sick of it.

GLENN: I really don't think I've mentioned it really.

PAT: I'm sick of it. I saw it over the weekend.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It's awesome.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: It's awesome.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: That movie is the feel good movie of the year, Glenn.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

PAT: You know what he does?

GLENN: What?

PAT: He yells at those evil AIG executives with a bullhorn and stuff.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Outside their big building.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It's a riot.

GLENN: You know, funny you should mention the word "riot." Isn't it interesting a day after the anticapitalist movie premiered in Pittsburgh, anticapitalist were rioting at the G 20 in Pittsburgh. I mean, if I were as ridiculous as let's say a numbskull at MSNBC, I might actually blame Michael Moore for the violence. But again that would make me a numbskull, wouldn't it?

PAT: Yeah. And that would just show your stupidity. Michael Moore isn't preaching the hateful hating hater hatred hateness that you are.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: He's just giving the facts.

GLENN: That's all he's doing.

PAT: Like there's no one watching the store anymore. There's no regulation on anyone.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

PAT: Right now.

GLENN: For the banks.

PAT: No regulation.

GLENN: The banks, for example, they only have the FDIC to answer to with all their regulations.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: And the Federal Reserve and all of theirs, and the OCC, Office of Controller of the Currency, and the OTC, Office of Thrift Supervision. There are literally hundreds of regulations and restrictions on the banks.

PAT: Since when?

GLENN: Whenever the government gets involved, it's always a treat and you should check out Page 17 of Arguing With Idiots. The government is involved in everything, many times over when it comes to regulation. You'll see on Page 17 that there are up to 12 different agencies responsible for more than 35 food safety laws. 541 clean air, water and waste programs spread over 29 different agencies. 40 different programs aimed at job training that are administered by seven different federal agencies. 50 programs to aid the homelessness run by eight different agencies, and I could go on. But do you really think Michael Moore's socialist or communist agenda is the answer here?

PAT: Well, no. For you I think the answer might be to cut back on the lard sandwiches so you can at least have some hope of looking at least as good on screen as Michael Moore does. I mean, your fat face doesn't even fit on Fox alone anymore.

GLENN: Do you really?

PAT: Takes up Fox, Fox Business, CNBC, MSNBC, the Food Network, Discovery, the National Geographic channel...

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.
