Glenn Beck: 'Capsize Guam' Congressman at it again



Guam in danger?

GLENN: One of my favorite guys in congress is the guy who said that Guam could capsize.

PAT: Hank Johnson is shooting up the charts.

GLENN: Hank Johnson is — whatever, I don't know where he's from, I don't know what he does.

PAT: Georgia.

GLENN: He's from Georgia?

PAT: Yeah, uh huh.

GLENN: He's not Cynthia McKinney's —

STU: I believe he is, replaced Cynthia McKinney.

PAT: I believe he is from that district if I'm not mistaken.

GLENN: I would like to go down to that district. I would like to see if there's something in the water. Is there some Dow Chemical plant that has been dumping things into the water?

PAT: Surely there's got to be somebody better who lives in the district.

GLENN: Van Jones has said that these companies are poisoning people. I'd like to see if that is possible.

STU: And they say you don't care about the environment. Look at that.

GLENN: Exactly right. I mean, you elect Cynthia McKinney and then Hank Johnson? Hank Johnson, play the super classic, my favorite on Guam.

PAT: Yeah, because

GLENN: Doesn't get any better.

JOHNSON: My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

PAT: That's scary.

GLENN: That's heavy. That's a lot of population on one side.

PAT: Well, that's 7,000 extra Marines that would be sent over there.

GLENN: What we need to do is make sure that everybody is evenly spaced.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: If we land some Marines on the left side of the island, make sure you land the same number of Marines on the right side of the island, front and back.

PAT: At exactly the same time.

GLENN: Front and back. Yes. One foot on...

PAT: That's coordinated.

GLENN: How many times, how many times have you been in an island where you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa! And then the whole thing capsizes and gets everybody all wet?

PAT: Happened to me three times.

GLENN: Did it really?

PAT: Three times. Manhattan completely capsized three times last week.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? That's why Jamaica's not overpopulated.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The Bahamas, not overpopulated. Everybody, you start all over again, ground zero. The only people — you know those boots that you hang upside down and

PAT: Antigravity boots? Uh huh.

GLENN: You're wearing those.

PAT: I think they were prominently featured in one of the Star Trek episodes.

GLENN: Exactly right. And what happens? The island flips over, everybody falls down to the bottom of the ocean and then the island flips back over and only the people wearing antigravity boots are the ones still able to live on the island.

PAT: They're saved.

GLENN: You wouldn't want a floaty for the island. You need it for the Guamanese.

STU: Okay, that's a good point. Maybe that's not why it's not passing.

GLENN: All right. So here's the latest soon to be classic from Hank Johnson.

JOHNSON: Let's get right down to it. Why are the Republicans opposed to restricting campaign donations in American campaigns both local, state and federal?

PAT: First Amendment speech.

VOICE: Why? Because Republicans favor big business.

PAT: Oh.

VOICE: And big business favors Republicans.

GLENN: Okay, hold on just a second. Stop for just a second. Quick, Stu, who was the largest contributor oil companies

PAT: Well, wait. You are getting ahead of yourself. Let him say it.

STU: No.

PAT: Wait for it.

GLENN: He doesn't say it.

PAT: Wait for it.

JOHNSON: More Republicans getting elected, both local, state and federal. What it means is that BP, a corporate wrongdoer, foreign corporation can influence elections.

PAT: Yeah.

JOHNSON: It means Goldman Sachs and other corporations.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh

PAT: And BP!

GLENN: And BP!

PAT: Biggest contributors to Barack Obama.

GLENN: Barack Obama.

STU: That is unreal.

GLENN: That is incredible.

PAT: Is that fantastic?

GLENN: You know what happened?

PAT: This guy's a gold mine.

GLENN: He may have been wearing antigravity boots.

PAT: He may have.

GLENN: And when the island flipped back up, he hit himself in the head real hard accidentally. He's still a little dizzy.... because nothing's really making sense as it's coming out of his mouth.

PAT: I'm going to Georgia to campaign for and on behalf of Hank Johnson because I want him in congress forever.

GLENN: I want him as president.

PAT: We need him. We need him.

GLENN: I want him as the president. He's fantastic.

PAT: I mean, come on. BP specifically, the biggest contribution they've ever given in the last, 24 years, 26 years? Barack Obama.

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."
