Glenn Beck: NASA's new mission -- make Muslim countries 'feel good'

GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. So I have to play some amazing audio here of the new chief of NASA. Okay, the space exploration, whatever. Let's make NASA's main, main mission to make Muslim countries feel good — I'm quoting — feel good about themselves and their contribution in history to math and science. Here is the chief of NASA.

VOICE: Charged me with three things. One is he wanted me to help reinspire children to get into science and math. He wanted me to expand our international relationships and third and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations, to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering.

PAT: Wow. Gosh, that's —

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: That's the charge given to Charles Bolden by the president of the United States for the NASA mission.

GLENN: That's the most condescending thing I've ever heard.

PAT: Foremost.

GLENN: Foremost.

PAT: That was his foremost mission.

GLENN: But imagine how condescending that is to say that NASA's going to go over and say, look who's been smart in the past, look what you've done. Who can take an abacus and turn it upside down? You can. I mean, that is the most condescending thing I've ever heard. Make them feel good about their history. And isn't that so very progressive. Make them feel good. That's the charge of NASA? That's what we're doing with NASA money?

PAT: Well, what would you do with NASA? I mean, you don't — you know, it's a space program. What are you going to do?

GLENN: You've already been to space.

PAT: You're not going to go to space.

GLENN: We've already been to space.

PAT: We've been to the moon.

GLENN: If that's your charge, shut NASA down.

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: If that's your charge, shut it down. You know there are some things that only the government can do because it is so big of a charge, such a huge charge. I no longer think that NASA is the only one that can go to space because we've seen it with the X rocket. You can do it. So NASA's looking for a new mission. If that is the new mission of NASA, I don't even know what that has to do with space. Shut it down.

PAT: No, because they are also doing global warming. So it's the Muslim outreach.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: And you are doing the climate change, too. So —

GLENN: We have Darrell Clegg Washington on the phone now.

KLEGWORTH: Darrell Klegworth.

GLENN: Klegworth?

KLEGWORTH: Yes. I'm the associate director of Glenn Beck Obama research outreach.

GLENN: Wait. I didn't know we had one of those. What is this?

KLEGWORTH: The Glenn Beck coalition to outreach to Obama's force.

PAT: What?

GLENN: The Obama outreach?

KLEGWORTH: Yes.

GLENN: We're reaching out to Obama supporters?

KLEGWORTH: We are. We believe that it's important for many of the listeners out there who have voted for Barack Obama but might listen to Glenn Beck to know that they're excellent at math.

PAT: Really?

KLEGWORTH: They're excellent at —

GLENN: How is — I didn't — first of all —

PAT: How do we even know they are excellent at math?

KLEGWORTH: They are fantastic at it. Have you ever met these people?

GLENN: Hang on just a second. No, I haven't and I — I mean, first of all, they are probably not listening to us.

KLEGWORTH: Very important to reach out to them. They are listening very closely. A lot of people seem alienated by the fact that you bring up all of Obama's faults and his connections to nefarious people.

GLENN: Right, but I don't —

KLEGWORTH: But they really need to come along to the Glenn Beck business and to be customers and listeners of yours for years to come is to realize that we understand here at the Glenn Beck program that they know their times tables. They have studied both long and short division.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. I don't think this is what — I mean, they don't —

KLEGWORTH: But really —

GLENN: It's not like they have a misunderstanding of where I stand on math with them.

KLEGWORTH: They do. Think about this. Do they know that you know that they're special? They're special people. Do they know —

GLENN: I think that might be a little condescending.

KLEGWORTH: Do they know that you know that they — if passed with cooking and appetizer, it will likely come out fairly well. Do they know that about you?

GLENN: That I know that they can cook appetizers?

KLEGWORTH: They can cook, when you cook —

GLENN: I'm not sure all of them can.

KLEGWORTH: Well, that's not really important. That's important is that they know that you know that they can cook up a wonderful spinach and artichoke dip.

PAT: So this is all about making them feel important or —

KLEGWORTH: We want to be sure that they feel good about their ability to look bruschetta.

GLENN: Let me just take this out of the real world here.

PAT: Weird.

GLENN: You know, with our associate director of Obama voter outreach.

KLEGWORTH: Yes.

GLENN: And let's use a hypothetical situation.

KLEGWORTH: Hypothetical.

GLENN: Okay. Let's say a group of people hated you because they thought that you were oppressing the rest of the world, that you were the Antichrist, the literal Antichrist, okay?

KLEGWORTH: Sure.

GLENN: They hated your way of life, they hated your religion, and it was deep. I mean, it was generational. If I said to them, hey, you're good at math and science, I don't think that's going to make a difference.

STU: Well, that could ring a little hollow. But if you were to also say you're good at social studies.

PAT: Oh.

KLEGWORTH: You're good at gym. You guys are fantastic at dodge ball and pickle ball you're at least adequate.

PAT: I don't think Obama supporters are good at dodge ball. I don't think they even play it.

KLEGWORTH: How do you know that?

PAT: Well, because it's dangerous.

KLEGWORTH: It is a little dangerous. Maybe we should ban that.

GLENN: But wait a minute, wait a minute. What if we tell them that they can play it even though it's dangerous; that's how good they are?

PAT: Ah.

GLENN: It's not dangerous for them.

PAT: Hmmm, that might be good.

KLEGWORTH: That's pretty good.

PAT: You like that?

KLEGWORTH: I like that.

PAT: I mean, you are the outreach guy.

KLEGWORTH: I am.

GLENN: You go out and keep that outreach.

PAT: Make that happen.

GLENN: I think new Obama supporters are going to start coming, watching and listening to the show every day with this kind of —

KLEGWORTH: It's important to focus on this, Glenn. Like, for example, we have started an outreach program directly to Sean Penn and we said, "I am Sam" was adequate. You did a good job in that movie. It was a good job of acting. It wasn't —

PAT: Have you seen I am Sam?

KLEGWORTH: No, no, of course not.

PAT: Nobody did, but you just want to make him feel good about his performance.

GLENN: But I don't think that's going to make him a fan of me or even a supporter or even tolerate me.

KLEGWORTH: Well, it's certainly not believable if you tell him he is good at math because there's no way Sean Penn has come to addition in a good way.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

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.
