GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I've got to go back to Barack Obama now who was just making a comment about how, you know, we're going to have chocolate rivers and oompa loompas making candy bars at night.

PAT: You want to start from the beginning of this or you want to start from let's try from the beginning.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Tonight after nearly 100 years of talk and frustration

GLENN: Progressive.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: After decades of trying and a year of sustained effort and debate, the United States congress finally declared that America's workers and America's families

GLENN: Workers are

PRESIDENT OBAMA: and America's small businesses deserve the security of knowing that here in this country neither illness, or accident should endanger the dreams they have worked a lifetime to achieve. Tonight

GLENN: Tonight.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: At a time when the pundits said it was no longer possible.

PAT: That's what they said.

GLENN: I didn't.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We rose above the weight of our politics. We pushed back on the undue influence of special interests.

PAT: There you go, pushed back on the undue influence of special interests like


PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Kickback on SEIU? I didn't see that. I didn't see any of that.

PAT: I didn't, either.

GLENN: How about the Center For American Progress? Did they push back on the Center For American Progress? How about the Apollo Alliance? Did they push back on that one? How about the AFL CIO?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: They didn't push back there?

PAT: Uh uh, but

GLENN: How about the prescription drug companies?

PAT: Not really. They kind of made a deal with the prescription drug companies.

GLENN: How about AARP?

PAT: No. Made a deal with AARP. So

GLENN: I'm just trying to figure out

PAT: Caught a couple of special sweetheart deals for pharmaceuticals who then pumped millions of dollars into an ad campaign to get this thing passed. All the while they demonized them behind their backs.

GLENN: But surely, surely

PAT: Maybe that was the pushback.

GLENN: Surely there was no deals with those evil insurance companies.

PAT: No, actually there were some.

GLENN: What was that?

PAT: Yeah, there were some deals with the insurance companies, too.

GLENN: Oh. Oh, I know what he was talking about. There was pushback on the tea party people.

PAT: Yes, that's who he pushed back.

GLENN: Yes, the special interests of you, the American people. You were finally pushed, finally

PAT: I hate that special interest.

GLENN: And if we could just kick you in the ribs it would be good, too, wouldn't it? I can't wait for those people like us to just be kicked in the ribs over and over and over again.

PAT: Or the face. You know, whatever.

GLENN: It's coming. All right. What else did he say?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We didn't give in to mistrust or to cynicism.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop.


GLENN: Stop, stop, some. Wasn't it SEIU that was going out and calling where was the press when they sent the SEIU thugs out to beat up a black tea partygoer while calling him the N word? Where was the press on that one? Where was the press one? You are right. He didn't give in to fear. The good news is we didn't, either. They didn't give in to cynicism. Cynicism, what would cause cynicism? People saying one thing and doing another? The lack of

PAT: Deals?

GLENN: The lack of transparency, what would cause cynicism?

PAT: Oh, he's been clear about this notion of a lack of transparency.

GLENN: This notion?

PAT: He's been clear about that.

GLENN: Is that what that is?

PAT: It's a notion, yeah.

GLENN: There used to be notion salesman, didn't they?

PAT: Not anymore. He's co opted that word.

GLENN: Unmentionables and notions.

PAT: Really? I thought those were lotions, but no?

GLENN: No, I thought they were notions. Wasn't there notion salesmen? I think so. I don't know.

PAT: It's possible.

GLENN: I didn't live in the early 20th century with all of the evil progressives. So I'm not sure, but anyway, go on with his unmentionables.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Instead we proved that we are still a people capable of doing big things, in tackling our biggest challenges.

GLENN: Wait, hold on just a second. Hold on just a second. Was healthcare our biggest challenge? Was it?

PAT: No, I thought jobs were.

GLENN: I thought jobs were, too. I thought jobs were, too. But Nancy Pelosi came out today and said that she thinks this is going to create all kinds of new entrepreneurial ideas.

PAT: The healthcare bill?

GLENN: Uh huh. I think she's kind of right.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, like how do I get my company and my money out of the country before it's all confiscated. I think that's there's some entrepreneurs working on that right now. How can I set up shop in another country because Charlie Rangel, what a surprise, blocked the door and said you can't leave with your money anymore. Hmmm. What an odd coincidence that was.


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.
