GLENN: It's another day in America. And as we look to the future, there's a list of potential GOP candidates for 2012.

PAT: Getting together again for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference. That's where, you know, it's kind of the precursor to the presidential race, and it happens today through Saturday in New Orleans. Among the speakers this year so among the potential candidates, this is from whom we're choosing apparently, at least so far. Newt Gingrich.

GLENN: Can't win. No way.

PAT: Ron

GLENN: You know what, if you listen to Newt Gingrich, Newt Gingrich has a lot of great ideas and he's a great historian. I just think he has too much baggage.

PAT: Ron Paul. Enough said there. I mean

GLENN: No.

PAT: No chance. Bobby Jindal.

GLENN: Well, now wait a minute. Hang on. America has changed. There are more and more libertarians, but I don't think that there's a chance for Ron Paul.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Sorry, but Ron Paul, I mean, he's right about many things. And I'm more and more in his corner on

PAT: Fiscally?

GLENN: No, fiscally I'm absolutely, I mean, let's abolish all of it. When it comes to military, I'm more and more in his camp, but I am not somebody who says, stop it right now. You can't. You can't. You have to phase it out. You can't create a vacuum. But as far as I'm concerned, the rest of the world, I mean, I'm president of the United States; here's what I say: The rest of the world, fend for yourself. And you attack us; I'm going to use everything we got. I'm going to use men last. I got missiles. Some of them are aging and need to be replaced. I might as well use them. So don't screw with us. You know what I mean? And the last thing I'm going to do, by the way, I'm going to vaporize you and I'm not going to help rebuild. Don't screw with us. But, you know, Ron Paul is just too much for me, for my taste. But I think America's moving his direction more and more every day.

PAT: Then there's Bobby Jindal, another speaker.

GLENN: You know, Bobby Jindal, I really like Bobby. I've met him a couple of times and I really like him. He really hurt himself in that speech that he gave, remember, after the inauguration? But that's, you know

STU: That's one mediocre speech.

PAT: Mediocre, whew, that was kind, Stu.

STU: He's like kind of the opposite of some of these other like, you know, Barack Obama who's much worse off prompter. Bobby Jindal's much better off prompter.

GLENN: Oh, yeah, Bobby Jindal

STU: You know, in debates and stuff he would do a lot better than he did in a speech and again it was his first big public

GLENN: Can I tell you something? America will want somebody who can go off prompter, you know?

PAT: But on prompter he was like, I think that

GLENN: He was not good. I like him and I like his policies. I think this guy is I think he has a chance.

PAT: I think he's the real deal.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Michael Steele speaking.

GLENN: Didn't Michael Steele just step down from

PAT: No. His top chief of staff. He says he's staying.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: And then Sarah Palin.

GLENN: Is that really a good idea? I'm sorry. Did I say that out loud?

PAT: I think you did.

GLENN: And then what?

PAT: Sarah Palin.

GLENN: I don't think she wants to be president.

PAT: No, she doesn't seem to.

GLENN: I don't think she wants to be president.

PAT: And then, you know, he's not listed as speaker, but the other, you know, potential that we hear about all the time is Mitt Romney. And he's saddled with the burden of Massachusetts healthcare in the face of a very unpopular federal system.

GLENN: I have to tell you that Mitt Romney could be the only guy that could win, and I don't know if he could because I think that Americans are going to be I mean, this country is going to be in deep trouble by 2012, and the next term, if it's not decided this term, the next term will decide our fate. Then I hope that Americans are ready for an adult and are ready for hard news.

I tell you, you know, this who is it, the Huffington Post came out and said that Glenn Beck is only making money by saying things that everybody wants to hear. I'm going to give you a week next week. I have a thinktank that we've put together and all next week I'm going to lay out the map of cutting the budget in half. I am going to I'm going to make everyone in America angry next week, even you. Everyone in America is going to be angry with me next week.

PAT: Because you know that's what America wants to be. You know they want to be angry and that's just another

GLENN: It will only help. It will only help me make my money on saying things that I don't believe

PAT: That's right.

GLENN: I'm just saying the things that people want to hear.

PAT: Because people want to hear that America's about on the brink of economic destruction. Who doesn't want to hear that?

GLENN: I know.

PAT: We all love it.

GLENN: I know.

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."
