Glenn Beck: EU -- Fiscal union or bust?

GLENN: You know, it's it's amazing to me how this is all coming together and how beautifully crafted it is. It is truly elegant the way that this country and the globe is being conned into a collective government. I want to go back to Europe and show now the choice in Europe. You know that they first said that they had to give lots of bailout money and it had to be staggering amounts does this sound familiar to shock the system over in Europe. And it went to Greece and that was supposed to stop the dominoes from falling. And now the next domino is starting to fall and that is Ireland. And the Irish didn't want it. And they were forced by the EU to take it, otherwise all the other dominoes would fall. Well, there's more dominoes to come. It's going to be Portugal and then it will be Spain. It's over.

And so here's what's being reported in the financial sector today.

PAT: Business Insider has a story that's headlined: You've Got to Restructure the Eurozone Now Before the Radicals Take Over. If Europe is going to resolve the current crisis in an orderly way, it's going to have to move very quickly, not just for the obvious financial reasons.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Could you read that sentence again?

PAT: If Europe is going to resolve the crisis in an orderly way.

GLENN: Stop. Who else is talking about an orderly restructuring, an orderly decline? George Soros.

PAT: George Soros.

GLENN: Do you know that George Soros was just voted by some, I don't know, world organizational thing as the 15th most important and most influential man in the world? Now, why wouldn't we listen to what he has to say? If the world is being restructured. Listen to that again. For an orderly restructuring, you've got to move rapidly. Quick, quick! Emergency! You've got to reorder this right now! Otherwise chaos! And don't dismiss the chaos. There is chaos on the other end.

PAT: And this particular author says that for ten years he's been using mainly an economic argument to explain why he believed the Euro would have great difficulty to survive for even a decade, let alone as long as it has. So he's he claims to have seen this coming and he quotes another article from another expert in the Financial Times that the Eurozone is maneuvering itself into a position where it confronts the choice between two alternatives considered unimaginable: Fiscal union or total breakup. So they either unite under one continental I suppose government and really unite more than they already are.

GLENN: Fiscal government.

PAT: One fiscal government. Or they break up and go back to the monetary units that they used to use, like the franc and all the

GLENN: And the answer is local.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The answer is smaller, not bigger. And they are going to push them into the smaller.

Now, if you, if you unite all of Europe under one financial umbrella, who has the engine?

PAT: Oh, I know. I know. I know. Finland!

GLENN: No, not Finland, no.

PAT: Norway?

GLENN: Sorry, no.

STU: Denmark.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Luxembourg.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Luxembourgians.

STU: Monaco, Monaco.

GLENN: No, sorry.

STU: Ivory Coast! Ivory Coast!

VOICE: Oh, come on!

PAT: Bosnia?

GLENN: No, it's not. No. Germany.

PAT: Oh, crap. I didn't see that coming at all.

GLENN: Germany. So Germany now will be the financial center of this new European, this new European order.

PAT: That's always worked out so well when they've been the center of Europe.

GLENN: It has always worked out.

PAT: Very well. That's great.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you something. When you have Europe being shouldered by the workers of Germany, do you think the Germans take that on as a good thing? Do you think the Germans want the German identity erased?

STU: They usually don't.

GLENN: Good, good, usually have a major problem with that.

PAT: You are only saying that because you've got historical evidence to back it up.

GLENN: Every single time!

STU: Seems to be an issue for them.

GLENN: Yeah, it seems to be a problem. I don't know if you've ever been to Europe, but they don't want to melt into each other. We are a melting pot; they are not. They don't like the fact that everything is the same. They like the convenience of things being the same, but they are unique. They are stones. They are not bricks. But they are being held together now by materialism. Think of

PAT: Gosh.

GLENN: History repeats itself over and over and over again. It is the Tower of Babel. And is it, is it would you do a Google search of the EU parliament building and the Tower of Babel? Do it right now. Look at the two buildings side by side.

PAT: You have to find an because there's no actual photos of the Tower of Babel.

GLENN: Thank you, thank you.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Thank you. There is a painting from, like, 1643 or something like that. But look at the have you done this, Pat?

PAT: Of what they would look like.

GLENN: Stu, have you seen them?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

PAT: It's pretty cool. You showed it on TV, didn't you, last week or the week before?

GLENN: Yeah, a couple of weeks ago. I mean, it's remarkable. It's remarkable.


 


 

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."
