GLENN: Holy cow. We have now new audio from Bill Ayers on the WikiLeaks. Do

you have it? This is from

PAT: Yeah, I didn't think it was going already but it is.

GLENN: This is from

TheBlaze.com. It will be posted in a few minutes. This is an

exclusive, I believe from TheBlaze.com right now. It is Bill Ayers talking about WikiLeaks. In it he does not denounce violence of the weather underground. He

compares WikiLeaks to the Weather Underground and, in fact, at one point he's a

little indignant that the radio host tries to imply that he denounces violence.

Here it is.

VOICE: In all of your interviews, especially, you know, around the election, you

always had to open up by denouncing the violence inflicted by the Weather

Underground and what we were wondering, which never got talked about, is what

actually drove you guys during that era? What drove these activists that you

knew to such extreme measures?

AYERS: I'm let me just start by saying I'm not certain I understood the

beginning of your question. You said always denounced the violence of the

Weather Underground?

VOICE: Well, yeah. It seemed like, it seemed like you always

AYERS: I don't remember that.

VOICE: Well, it seemed like you always had to open up by being like it was very,

you know, regrettable and so forth.

AYERS: I don't believe I ever said it's regrettable, but so

PAT: I don't think he has, either.

AYERS: I'll tell you I'll answer your question but I don't quite agree with the

way you set it up because actually what I've consistently, including in

everything I've written, is that there is no question that the Weather

Underground crossed, you know, lines of legality and I sometimes say we crossed

lines of common sense in certain ways, but I never denounce what we did. And the

reason is because in the context of those times and what was going on


TheBlaze:


‘I Never Denounced’ W.U. Violence: Ayers Compares Weather Underground to

WikiLeaks

GLENN: The ends justify the means.

AYERS: I actually think that we were very restrained, and I've always thought

that, and I still think it. So but what drove us to it? Well, I would say this:

That I was one simple way to say it is in a story. I was first arrested opposing

the war in Vietnam in 1965.

GLENN: You are hearing Bill Ayers, brand audio.

AYERS: At that point, something like 80% of Americans supported the war,

something like 10, 15% opposed the war. Over the next three years activism

became much more intense, much more public. I participated in a lot of it. A lot

of organizing went on against the war. I think the most violent force then and

even more violent today is the U.S. Government. Do I think what we did was

brilliant? Not really. Do I think it was horrendous? Absolutely not. You compare

6,000 people in one week being murdered by my government to, you know, an

escalated piece of vandalism against a military computer inside the Pentagon,

there's no comparison. And to kind of focus on the Weather Underground as this

violent, unbelievably out of control, I think it reminds me, if you put it in

today's context, here we have WikiLeaks describing, you know, revealing all the

incredible things going on. The real assault on democracy by our government in a

systematic way. And how does the news media cover it? Oh, my gosh, it's leaking,

it's dishonest. Who's dishonest in this picture? Who's the liar in this picture?

Who's the force for oppression and exploitation? Well, in my view if you look at

the Sixties and you look at the Seventies, the Weather Underground was not only

restrained, we were temperate, we were not particularly violent. We destroyed

some property.

GLENN: Can you stop for a second? I just said this, I looked at Pat when I'm

listening to him and I'm saying, this is all set up. This is a setup. This

Julian Assange thing, when did we know he was coming out with things?

PAT: Was it August?

GLENN: I think it was a little before August.

PAT: Maybe, maybe before that.

STU: Well, he had the war stuff over the summer and then it's been more recent.

Recent stuff.

GLENN: So we knew. Why did he wait until now? Does anybody know?

PAT: Christmas Gift for the left?

GLENN: Why did he wait until now?

PAT: Stocking stuffer?

GLENN: Why? Why? Why would you wait on that? Why would you sit on that stuff?

STU: I think I've heard him I could be wrong on this but I think he wanted

separation to some degree.

GLENN: From?

STU: From the other stuff that he released, the war stuff, which is why he's

supposedly trickling it out now instead of just releasing it all at once, have

more impact. I don't know if you buy that, but that's been something tossed

around.

GLENN: I just find it, I find it really interesting. Listen. Bill Ayers, no

matter what he says, is a friend of Barack Obama and Barack Obama's allies. They

may not be close friends but they know each other. They worked in the same damn

building one door away. They were on the same board. They lived in the same

neighborhood. They know each other. They're friends. I'm not saying that they're

having, you know, nacho parties and watching football games on the weekend, but

they are friends. Bill Ayers, without a shadow of a doubt, is friends with many

people surrounding this president.

Now, Bill Ayers is now coming out now, listen. Because what's happening here? We

are taking down this regime, if you will. Well, who's in charge? Who's in

charge? Barack Obama, right? Well, if you take down this regime, wouldn't you be

taking down Barack Obama? Or are we just taking down America? Because, as I told

you before, they are building a structure and they need to have the structure

completed before it collapses. I've told you they are preparing. They have. The

only piece left is the media and the military. Now, I don't know what their

military plan is, but I do know what their media plan is. Because you can find

it on The Blaze. We just played we did it for about 45 minutes today, playing

the audio. Listen to the commissioner of the FCC. He wants to control television

and the characters on television.

The only thing left is the media and the military. I know what they are planning

on doing in the media, and that happens December 20th or 21st? The FCC goes

against the wishes of congress and against federal judges and they are going to

do Internet, what do you call it?

PAT: Net neutrality.

GLENN: Net neutrality through, if you remember I said the most dangerous man in

America is Cass Sunstein, our regulatory czar. He controls and writes all the

regulations. Once you make congress irrelevant, it's all about regulations and

paperwork. So what are they doing on December 20th? They are changing the

federal regulations on the Internet. They will regulate it through the FCC. Cass

Sunstein. We will show you, you can read about it more on TheBlaze.com about the

military and what is happening currently with the military. The military has

been doing military exercises and we are tracking all of this stuff down and we

are going to do probably an hour special on it tomorrow night. But all of the

pieces are in place. So Barack Obama doesn't collapse in the system. The people

remember, bottom up, cause chaos, get people to march in the streets. Cause

chaos. Cause a, what was it Soros says in Step Number 3, what he did to all the

other nations? You cause distrust of the government. And you get people to march

out in the streets. You cause collapse and the people want it to stop, and they

will cry out. And that's when the top comes down that coordinated the bottom

riots. This is Czechoslovakia 1948. This is America 2011. Bottom up, top down.

Turn it inside out. Their own words they are saying these things now. You just

have to believe that there was somebody that would be willing to do this. Here

is Bill Ayers. It just screams coordination to me. Here is Bill Ayers saying

that the Weather Underground is the same as WikiLeaks. It's the same, their

goals are the same. You have the communists go to NZpatriot.com today and look

at the list of the communist parties all around the world that have come out and

said, yes, we're behind WikiLeaks. Why? Chaos.

Do you remember the show I did three, four months ago and I had the whole

spectrum and I had anarchists and communists. One side was communist and the

other side was anarchists. Well, what do the anarchists have in common? Why

would the communists be fueling the anarchists? Why would they do it? Because

they know that anarchy leads to people crying out and saying stop it, just make

it go away. Bring sanity. They are going to collapse this whole damn world. They

are going to collapse the whole damn world.

So you know, this isn't a WikiLeaks is doing this. He was arrested in Great

Britain. This is not an American problem. This is why I've said to you that

they're so far beyond what you thought, what I thought and I will tell you now

and I haven't told this story before. I have had one moment of real fear, real

fear, and it was the moment that I found buried in a bill that passed under

George W. Bush pieces of this FCC regulation. It's when I knew they were

building a structure and I knew they were way ahead because this piece of this

FCC structure made no sense by itself. It was buried in another bill. A

researcher called me about 11:00 at night and said, Glenn, I found it. When did

it pass? Believe it or not, it passed under George W. Bush. Dear God help us. I

realize this isn't about Barack Obama. This isn't about anything. This is about

radicals that have laid in wait. What is the beginning of H. G. Wells and War of

the Worlds? That we have been studied. Eyes, envious eyes watching and studying,

laying in wait. That's when I wrote to Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin and I had been

texting each other all night and I wrote to her and I said, I am for the first

time afraid. And she called me back like at 2:00 in the morning and we were on

the phone for about an hour. And I said, Sarah, this has been in the works for a

very long time. They're way ahead. Way ahead. And this was the moment that I she

actually talked me down from the tree because this is a moment when I said just

never, never going to beat it. You're never going to beat it. And I'm not going

to be the guy I'm not going to be the guy. And she talked to me for quite a

while: You've got to stay in the game. You've got to stay in the game. She was a

real blessing to me. I don't even know if she even remembers that. I'm sure she

does. Since that time I have learned so much of, A, how far ahead they are but,

B, how to defeat them. I know how to defeat them. And the way to do it is they

think you are going to zig. You must zag. They do not the darkness will not

understand the light. It is your only cover. It is your only cover.

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."
