GLENN: All right. Let me quickly go back to Van Jones and tell you why this bothered you at Fort Hood, while you were watching the President, I know everybody has already talked about this, but I've been gone and I haven't heard anybody really spell out why this bothered you. When he talked for two minutes -- play the audio, please, of Van Jones, when he talked for two minutes prior to saying, Hey, by the way, huge tragedy at Fort Hood today, he was talking about Indians and this is the first audio piece that went off in my mind. I knew I had heard the word -- these kinds of words somewhere before that the President was now saying and it was spilling out into my living room. I'm hearing not the President. I'm hearing this.

MR. JONES: No more broken treaties, no more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect.

GLENN: Okay. So, I started thinking about Van Jones. Now, this is in the three minutes before the President even starts to address Fort Hood. And I start thinking about Van Jones and then I remembered that I wanted to talk to you about something that we had missed and I think everybody had missed in New York in the 23rd -- while everybody was talking about the New York 23rd, they didn't notice that there was -- in the law in New York and it went -- really, nobody even talked about it. Do you want prisoners to be able to go work for community organizations? Sure. That sounds like a good idea. Uh-huh. So, now prisoners can leave the walls and they can work for community organizations, just pulling a couple of ideas out, Americorp, maybe, something like that. And it made me think that we got off Van Jones too early because we were working on a story about Van Jones speaking in San Quinton last March, where he told a group of inmates from the San Quinton Times, quoting, We need genius. We need entrepreneurial brilliance, people who will reimagine possibilities. We need you. The whole point of that speech was to give jobs to people in prison, to let them work, something that has just passed in New York and nobody paid attention. Naturally, I think we all agree that this is -- it's only an extremist that think that we shouldn't be looking for tomorrow's entrepreneurs in prisons, not colleges or tech schools. No, no. Prisons. That's where the, quote, genius and entrepreneurial brilliance will from. Guess who else focused directly on prison inmates for their recruiting efforts. Let me ask the question again. Van Jones looking for new recruits, entrepreneurial brilliance. New York now voting to say, yes, if you're a prisoner, you can go to work for a community organization. Hum. Sounds awfully familiar. Sounds like the Van Jones plan. So, we know Van Jones and the extreme left wants to recruit in prisons, but who else wants to recruit in prisons? Who looks at not just the entrepreneurial brilliance in prison but who looks to prisons as their No. 1 spot to recruit, No. 1? Al Qaeda. The No. 1 place for Islamic radicalization in America is our prison system, which brings me full circle back to the speech where Barack Obama meandered around before addressing the Islamic terrorist slaughter of our men and women in uniform, on a military base right here at home, in Texas, and then he told us not to jump to my conclusions. Fortunately, President Obama has never jumped to my conclusions before.

OBAMA: I don't know all the facts, but that -- the Cambridge police acted stupidly.

GLENN: Hum. So, now you can draw your own conclusions from all of this, but my point is something wasn't right, something isn't right. When we can trace policy back to a radical revolutionary communist self-titled communist Van Jones and make the connections directly back to Barack Obama's agenda, maybe it was divine providence that this happened on the same day, so we could actually see the connections, mistake make these connections during a speech following, call it what you want to call it, a terrorist massacre. There's ample reason to be concerned. Trust your gut. Look. A lot of people will talk about may have been American rights. It's important. Treaties were broken, but in the grand scheme of things and priorities, the day of a national tragedy, yeah, I don't think I as the President would be doing that on that day, but you stay awake. You stay involved in the process. You are needed. You are not a sunshine patriot. If you just love the flag, well, just old glory, you're not going to be of any help. Your country needs you now more than ever before. You feel it like I do. This is not who we are, this is not the America our grandparents gave us. Check the records. You won't find a single shout out in any address on a tragedy from any American President in history. You won't find any Presidents advocating reparations for special interest groups, making the case for redistribution of wealth or making political promises to people before he even gets around the mentioning the death of 13 Americans who volunteered to serve not Americorp, not ACORN, but the ideas and the ideals of the founders of the United States of America.

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."
