GLENN: You know what? This was amazing. Listen to this. This is Senator Jon Kyl from Arizona. He's talking about a meeting that he had with President Obama about the border. Listen to this.

KYL: I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us. I kicked the rest of the people out. I asked them if they would leave. Sorry. (Laughter). And here's what the president said. The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you‑all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform. In other words, they are pulling it ‑‑

PAT: There it is.

KYL: They don't want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with comprehensive immigration reform.

PAT: People were truly stunned. I don't think that surprised me at all.

GLENN: I don't think I've ever heard a real gasp like that before. That's like a movie gasp.

PAT: Tthe people swallowed their tongues I think at that meeting.

STU: I was listening for the gasp. I didn't know what —

GLENN: Hang on just a second. You know what that is? That's the scene from Frosty the Snowman. Do you remember when he comes alive and all the kids are like, ah, Frosty?

STU: I'm looking up Frosty the Snowman on Amazon.

PAT: Check Frosty and see where we are on Amazon right now.

GLENN: It's not the time of the year. I'm not recommending anything

STU: No, no, you did. You already did it.

PAT: You already did it.

STU: Can't get out of it now.

PAT: Too late. The Beck Bump or the Stu Stampede.

STU: Stampede, I love it.

GLENN: I wholly endorse your buying of...

PAT: All right. So where is Frosty right now? Frosty the Snowman.

STU: I'm looking it up.

GLENN: No, I don't really care where Frosty the Snowman — it was a quick reference.

STU: It didn't seem like it. It is number 4,870.

PAT: Okay. If that doesn't move, the Beck Bump is over and Media Matters runs that as their lead story: Beck Bump ends; Frosty doesn't move.

GLENN: They will write a whole story about how I just believe that Frosty, because he's white, is the story of America.

PAT: Uh‑huh, uh‑huh.

GLENN: All right. —

PAT: Anyway, the Jon Kyl thing, is anybody surprised?

GLENN: I'm not.

PAT: I'm not shocked at all he said that.

STU: What is it again? What exactly happened? Because I was listening for the gasp and I wasn't actually paying attention to what he was saying.

GLENN: Play it again.

KYL: I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us. I kicked the rest of the people out.

GLENN: Okay, he's met with the president.

KYL: I asked them if they would leave.

GLENN: Just the two of them.

KYL: Here's what the president said. The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.

PAT: Okay. Did you get that? So they are not going to secure the border because then you may not vote for comprehensive immigration reform because the border's already secure. Well, wait a minute. Close the border and then we'll worry about dealing with all the rest of the madness and that's what America has always wanted. But you know what? I mean, they gasp. George Bush was doing the exact same thing. This is exactly the Bush policy, too, the Bush doctrine on this. It's the same thing.

GLENN: Excuse me? Excuse me?

PAT: Bush, Clinton, H. W., probably back to Reagan.

GLENN: Keep going?

PAT: All right. Let's try Carter, let's go to Ford and Nixon.

GLENN: You can go all the way back. You can also go across.

PAT: LBJ.

GLENN: You can go to John McCain. How about Senator Kyl? Where has he been — where has he stood on this?

PAT: Yeah, I —

GLENN: You don't know, do you?

PAT: I mean, he's been strong —

GLENN: Frosty the Snowman would know.

PAT: He's been strong at times but he's — I remember having some problems four years ago with Kyl but I don't remember what they are now. He may have supported the comprehensive immigration reform. We should look into that.

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."
