Glenn Beck: Call to Action




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

I told you on Thursday, after looking at what's in this financial "reform" bill, the republic as we know it is over.

The values and virtues of America's generations past are not even close to what we have right now. Let me correct that: You are still the same. It's Washington that has changed.

And when you read, as I have, all about revolutions and revolutionaries and begin to understand how they think, you can see what their game plan is. When you compare the revolutions in places like Venezuela, Cuba and Russia to where America is, you can see where we are in the revolutionary timeline.

They've already taken over health care. Is there any greater control than that of deciding the fate of someone's life?

They also decide which businesses live and which businesses die through the financial bill and unelected bureaucrats.

So they control your life and your pursuit of happiness. There's only one missing piece: Liberty. But they are coming for it. It's only by the grace of God — and by you standing up and being heard — that they don't already have it.

I know I'm called a fear-monger for saying things like the republic as we know it is over. That may be scary, but I'm not saying it to scare you. I don't say it lightly; I believe it.

Maybe I'm wrong — I hope I am. But I'm bringing to you what I believe to be the truth. And the truth is that by 2012, at best, we will be France. And in case you need a reminder on France, they've sucked at everything since the beret and even that sucked.

That's not who we are, but that's who these radicals want you to be. What do we do if that's reality and what I'm telling you is true? You don't have to believe it. I just want you or your friend who's not awake yet, to consider it.

Next week, I'm going to go through what I believe is the blueprint being followed by this administration. It's everything they are planning to do — read through it at GlennBeck.com. You'll be nodding your head going, "Oh, yeah — that's done. That's done."

But you cannot fall into the one trap that they are hoping you fall into: Becoming discouraged and frustrated.

It's easy to get frustrated. We go through all of this effort and seemingly nothing has changed. But don't stop what you are doing. Keep going. Don't despair. They need you to get angry and act out.

But we have to come together. Put aside any differences they've had — any bickering — hug, make up — whatever.

Ronald Reagan had a sign on his desk that read: "There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he does not mind who gets the credit."

A 9/12er got a hold of someone on our staff and they wanted me to lead more Tea Party events, etc. He said he couldn't do it because he "didn't know what he was doing."

You think I do? I'm a dad. I'm busy. I'm tired. But these are the times that try men's souls. God helps those that help themselves. Let's help ourselves.

Put your boots on.

In my lifetime, I have never served my country. I have never put my boots on and gone out into the field with a gun. I'd wet my pants; those guys are heroes. But every one of those heroes will tell you, no sir, I just did what I was supposed to do.

Are you doing what you're supposed to do?

I have not yet begun to fight. I'm not worn out, because I expect miracles. There are people now who are saying: I don't know if I am going on 8/28. I don't know if I'll go to another Tea Party.

Well, if you're done, then the republic truly is done. If you're done, they will take your liberty as well.

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."
