Glenn Beck: What's missing from the AZ lawsuit?

GLENN: Remember Barack Obama is about hope and not fear. We're past the politics of fear, or are we? The Arizona law, I have one of my chief researchers looking at this now. We have a report from Washington about the lawsuit that has been filed. In the lawsuit that has been filed by the federal government in Arizona, it is my understanding currently, and I will get verification on this, I have enough verification where I feel comfortable with it but I haven't personally verified it, that in the lawsuit for Arizona — well, before I tell you, Pat, why are they filing this lawsuit? What is the big problem with this Arizona law?

PAT: Oh, it's discriminatory.

GLENN: Discriminatory.

PAT: You know, they are going to be pulling people over for driving while Hispanic. I mean, it's just an ugly — you go out for ice cream and wind up in the slammer.

GLENN: It's discrimination.

PAT: Sure it is.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Sure it is.

GLENN: Do you know what's not in this lawsuit?

PAT: Spoons?

GLENN: No. The government doesn't make the case in this lawsuit that it's discriminatory.

PAT: What? I thought that was the government's case.

GLENN: I thought that is — exactly right. No, no, no.

PAT: That it's discriminatory?

GLENN: No, no, that's not the case.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: No. They don't make that. They are not making that case.

PAT: What's their problem then?

GLENN: Isn't that ‑‑ pardon me?

PAT: What's their problem?

GLENN: Well, you can't have ‑‑

PAT: They're trying to do the job we're not doing?

GLENN: No, you can't have the cities or states go up against the federal government and have a competing law. You can't do that. That is for the federal government to decide, not for Arizona to decide. But it's not discriminatory. They don't make that case in the lawsuit. You see, that's only for the public consumption. That is to — could you — do you remember the, who was it, Gerald from — Gerald what's his name from SEIU that said, you know, all you have to do is you say this to African‑Americans and they know. They're on it. You can just whip them up into a frenzy. Do you have that by any chance?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: We played it last night. It's SEIU. They're basically saying we've got to whip people up against white people, and we can get the African‑Americans just by saying discrimination. So that's what's happening now. That's for the public consumption. But that's not, that's not actually the case. They are not trying to make that case at all.

So Gibbs was asked this question, and this question is extraordinarily important because if you're not making the case of discrimination, you're saying now that, well, it's just that, you know, this is the federal government's job, and you can't have that. This is a powerful question. Listen yesterday, press conference with Robert Gibbs.

REPORTER: Now there are dozens of so‑called sanctuary cities that have their own policies that might potentially conflict with federal law supplements like Governor Brewer to say that if Arizona's in violation of federal law, then so are these localities. So my question is why did the president then ask DOJ to look at Arizona and not everywhere?

GIBBS: Let me — I don't know the answer to that but I will try to seek some answer on — some answer on that.

GLENN: Some —

PAT: Let me...

GLENN: Some... I'm going to — I'm going to get a — you know, I think it's appropriate when you don't have an answer to anything and you — I mean, you just... uh... Michelle Obama might be able to help out.

MICHELLE OBAMA: And Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices, we are going to have to change our conversation, we're going to have to change our traditions, our history. We're going to have to move into a different place.

GLENN: We should just move to a different place because we're going to have to change everything. Just change the conversation. Can we change the conversation a bit? Let's just talk about discrimination. Can't we change the conversation just a little bit? Let's change our history a little bit. We stole that land. Let's just change our history. Let's just change the conversation.

So what about the sanctuary cities? How come the federal government didn't go after the sanctuary cities?

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.
