Glenn Beck: America Capsizing Guam?



Congressman Hank Johnson worries that 8,000 US troops could cause Guam to tip over...

GLENN: That's an interesting now, now let's go to somebody really stupid. And I know the media immediately says, "Oh, they are going to talk about Sarah Palin because she's just the dumbest politician ever to walk God's green Earth which God, of course, had nothing to do with because God doesn't exist." I'm just thinking like the media. Unfortunately for the media, this is not Sarah Palin. This instead is audio of Congressman

PAT: Hank Johnson.

GLENN: Hank Johnson. Where is Hank from Illinois?

PAT: You know

GLENN: Look up Congressman Hank Johnson. I don't know where Hank is from, but he's a light bulb.

STU: Fourth district of Georgia.

PAT: Georgia.

GLENN: Of Georgia, okay. So here's Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson speaking at a press conference.

PAT: Looks to be like some sort of hearing involving a general who's sending 8,000 keep in mind they are trying to send 8,000 Marines to Guam to shore things up there.

GLENN: All right. And here's what happens.

PAT: Here's what happens.

VOICE: I don't have the exact dimensions but to your point, Guam is a small island.

VOICE: Very small island and about 24 miles, if I recall, long. So 24 miles long, about seven miles wide at the least widest place on the island and about 20 about 12 miles wide on the widest part of the island, and

GLENN: Okay, stop for just a second.

PAT: It's small.

GLENN: He's trying to make a point that this is a small island.

PAT: Small island.

GLENN: 8,000 Marines to Guam.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And I think what the congressman is trying to get to here is it's a small island.

PAT: Small.

GLENN: Now, maybe he's worried about overcrowding. No. Listen.

CONGRESSMAN HANK JOHNSON: Square miles, that is, do you happen to know?

VOICE: I don't have that figure with me, sir. I can certainly supply it to you if you'd like.

CONGRESSMAN HANK JOHNSON: Yeah, my fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

VOICE: We don't anticipate that. The Guam population I think currently about 175,000 and again with 8,000 Marines and their families, that's an addition of about 25,000 more into the population.

PAT: We don't, we don't anticipate it capsizing.

GLENN: I'm so would you play that? We have to take a break. Can we come back and play the part where he says, "I'm worried that it might tip over and capsize."

PAT: Capsize. Well, how many times have we seen that happen on small islands when you get too many people? I mean

GLENN: Never.

PAT: How many times? You've never seen that?

GLENN: How is this not a lead story everywhere? These are the people that we expected to fix healthcare.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: He's worried about and listen to the deference. I couldn't be a general. Listen to the deference. The general should have said

PAT: Very respectful.

GLENN: "What the hell is wrong with you?" "No, we don't anticipate that as a problem."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: You want to know why our government is broken? Because you have to say to a dope like that, "No, we haven't really... no, we're not anticipating that as being a real problem." Instead of saying, "Can we get somebody in here to answer to ask real questions here? Because..."

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Well, you know, there was a long time in our history that, you know, people believed the Earth was flat. Do we know that islands aren't floating and they capsize because of overpopulation? Has anyone ever confirm that?

GLENN: No, we haven't.

STU: It could happen.

GLENN: You are right. You're right.

STU: And this guy's just trying to be open minded scientifically.

GLENN: That's exactly, that's exactly right.

PAT: Well, Guam is small.

STU: It's small.

PAT: It's small.

STU: He illustrated that in his comments.

PAT: Like 24 miles wide.

GLENN: Hank, I want you to I want you seriously I want to thank you for thinking of the things that no one else has ever thought of.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I mean, what is it, what is it that Jon Stewart said of me, that I'm finally a thinking man, the guy who's thinking what was it, was the quote on one of our books?

STU: Finally a guy who says what people who aren't thinking are thinking.

GLENN: Yeah. That's weird because I've never thought that an island would capsize if you if we were going to send 8,000 Marines. How did this guy get into office?

PAT: That's a really good question.

STU: He was running on the floating island platform.

GLENN: Can you find out about

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Can you find out a little something about him? Can you what do you have on him? I've never even heard of this guy.

STU: He does have a response to this, by the way.

GLENN: Oh, good.

STU: This has gone viral and it's unbelievable that something like this would go viral when he was so obviously joking. Listen to the humor.

PAT: Oh, he was joking?

STU: Listen to the humor in there.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding me!

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: You have got to be kidding. Hang on, hang on, hang on.

STU: He was just so smart and funny!

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."
