Glenn Beck: Overton #1 NYT!!

GLENN: We got the news last night, how appropriate, it will be on the New York Times list for the July 4th weekend premiering at No. 1. It's driving the New York Times crazy. It's driving every author crazy. It is driving every pseudohistorian and I say pseudohistorian because I think they have so twisted history, they don't even know what's true anymore, that the books that we talk about on the show go to No. 1.

PAT: Now, you mean your book debuts at No. 1 except for, like, the Ed Schultz book, right, because surely the Ed Schultz back, there's such excitement on that --

GLENN: There's no reason to do this.

PAT: There is such hysteria and high exposure surrounding this book of Ed Schultz which is called -- I don't want to insult your intelligence by telling you the name of it, but, I mean, surely other than his book?

GLENN: There's no reason to do this. There's no reason to do this.

STU: See, this is unfair because this is Glenn's first week of release and Ed Schultz has been out for several weeks.

PAT: For several weeks

STU: And, you know --

PAT: Let's take the combined number of books sold

STU: I think maybe we should look at this particular week because Ed almost -- now, he did not quite, and I can't give him full credit for this, but he sold over 90% of a thousand copies this week.

The Overton Window, a thriller by Glenn Beck

PAT: Over 90% of a thousand?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: That's over -- that's 900 books?

STU: Well, it was 1 book over that. So, he's 901 books he's sold.

GLENN: Stop.

STU: And that's unfair because this is his fourth week of release. So, you have to really look at the entire picture and look at the vast amount of books he's sold since it was released.

PAT: Which, of course, is 300,000ish.

STU: He has now exceeded 100%, Pat, of 4009 books.

PAT: 4009? Woo hoo! Wow!

Stu: 4010.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: We don't wish other people ill.

PAT: No, we don't. Who said anything about that? Who said anything about wishing anything? We are applauding his incredible effort. I will not have you disrepresenting what we've been doing the last minute and a half.

GLENN: We do not revel in someone else's pathetic, pathetic showing.

STU: Wait a minute.

PAT: That took a turn there, didn't it?

GLENN: We don't do that. No. Seriously. There's no reason.

PAT: It's interesting, because he's out there making some incredible statements that make so much sense.

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: I can't believe people aren't rushing to buy -- like what he said night before night about the McChrystal thing.

VOICE: People like this should be absolute read meat politically for the Republicans and the conservative media in this country that hates Obama, anyway. He's given Dick Cheney and all of his cronies all the ammunition in the world to go on a summer offensive against the President's policies. Whose side is everybody on? This is America.

PAT: Do you love that

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Back in the day when Bush and Shinseki was going against the policies and he did it at a congressional hearing and he went against the policy of the President, I don't remember Ed having a real big problem with this and saying we're all Americas, Why can't Shinseki get with us?

VOICE: We are at war, aren't we? This was a stupid move by McChrystal. So, once again, here's President Obama, he has to fix yet another problem he inherited from the Bush administration.

GLENN: Wait a minute. By the way, this man's books sold? What a dope.

STU: Wait, wait. What does that mean inherited?

PAT: Yeah. He didn't inherit McChrystal. McChrystal was Obama's appointment.

STU: Yeah. That doesn't make any sense at all.

GLENN: No, no, no. The war.

PAT: Is it the war he's talking about?

STU: The war after September 11th, that's

VOICE: -- the President to step up, stand up, take charge, and fire this jackass General McChrystal.

GLENN: This jackass, this jackass. This is from the group of people that called Petraeus General Betray Us and now a jackass. Unbelievable.

PAT: Oh, and now the appointment of Petraeus is just -- what was the word?

VOICE: It sounds like a pretty brilliant decision, really.

VOICE: This is nothing less than a stunning development, Brian, and, quite frankly, at a quick glance, almost brilliant.

VOICE: Politically in this town, it's going to be seen as a brilliant choice by the President.

VOICE: Politically a very brilliant move to tap General Petraeus.

PAT: So, what are their feelings about that? I mean, I was confused there. Was there a memo that went out?

GLENN: General Betray Us and now it's a brilliant move.

PAT: And none of these guys were saying -- were any of these guys saying, Hey, how could you possibly call him? Was it Media Matters that did that? How could you possibly call him General Betray Us? It was Media Matters -- moveon.org.

GLENN: Same thing.

PAT: And nobody was defending him there. Nobody was calling him brilliant there. Nobody was saying, Wait a minute. They is America. Can't we be Americans and come together in a war effort? Now all of the sudden, but it's completely different, too.

STU: That's the same man who sold over 4,000 books a month.

PAT: That's a pretty good tune. It's very good. It's very good.

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."
