Arianna Huffington 'confused' by Glenn Beck

GLENN: Back to my original question. What percentage of Americans understand what we're on the verge of? We what do you suppose the percentage of Americans that believe that there are revolutionaries that want revolution, that we are on the eve of profound dramatic change, that we are fundamental transformation is here and it is not it's not an America that you recognize. And that this country can clamp down on media and people that are speaking out overnight. Overnight this stuff happens.

PAT: And if you, if you do speak out and you talk about people like George Soros, who has done this kind of thing

GLENN: Over and over and over.

PAT: Over and over again.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And they are you're called a conspiracy theorist or you're living in a fantasy land like, you know, Arianna Huffington just said about you.

GLENN: What did she say?

PAT: He was living in a fantasy.

HUFFINGTON: (Inaudible). If you would watch Glenn Beck in a fantasy. I mean, he wakes up and decides George Soros runs the world and then works out, you know, a complicated, confusing way of presenting it. It's entertaining. (Inaudible). It's da daism.

GLENN: Da daism. Da daism. Stop.

(Music playing)

GLENN: Stop.

STU: No, I think he got the first thing. I think he wanted the Green Acres thing. Yeah, it was Green Acres he wanted.

(Music playing)

PAT: Da daism. The lizard brains, darling.

GLENN: You know what's amazing? Did you hear what she said? She said complicated, confusing way, but it's entertaining. How can it be entertaining if it's confusing and complicated?

PAT: Right.

STU: Right. And it's complicated and confusing to her. That's because she can't understand.

GLENN: No, she understands. She understands. What did Cass Sunstein say? What did he say about people that would speak out and out the government? What did he say? Make it

PAT: Make them look like they're conspiracy theorists.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Even if it's true.

GLENN: If it turns out to be true, if you come out against the government

PAT: Oh, it's effective.

GLENN: Make it look like a conspiracy. Discredit them. Even if in the end it turns out to be true. They are doing that. I mean, I don't know why people won't take people at their word. You know what I mean? Listen to their own words. So I want to ask you guys. I say it's only about 10% of the American people that are really, truly awake. Stu?

STU: Uh

GLENN: That really understand. You know, they are not thinking, oh, you know what? Next year could be bad on unemployment. Next year could be off with their heads revolution. May not be but could be. We could see what we're seeing over in Europe next year.

STU: Yeah, if you're talking about riots in the street and stuff like in Europe, yeah. I mean, I think there's 10% of the population that sees that as a legitimate possibility. I mean, not certainly anything that's locked in by any means. We've been able to avoid it mainly so far. But it seems like it's happening over there. And these are not countries, this is not Zimbabwe having these rallies. These are well established, you know, very modernized economies going through these troubles.

GLENN: What is the percentage of people think that their country could be lost, their freedoms could be lost, the media could be lost as we know it? I'd say it's under 10%.

STU: Yeah, I would say under 10% for that, sure.

GLENN: Pat?

PAT: I don't want to get in trouble with Fareed Zakaria. So I'm going to say 1%.

STU: I'm going to say 97% Fareed. 97%.

PAT: Back that up. Back that up, Stu.

STU: Uh oh.

PAT: Back that up. There's 300 million people, 97%

GLENN: How does a country prepare? How does a country prepare? How does a country survive? How does freedom survive if only 10% is vigilant, is willing to say it could happen here?

PAT: What was the percentage in the revolution? They think about 20%. So we just have to wake up another 10 if your figure is right that it's 10%

STU: Not that we're looking for revolution obviously.

PAT: Not that we're looking for, no.

GLENN: No, but they are. They are.

PAT: We're looking to avoid it.

GLENN: Look at this you've got to watch this video on The Blaze. They use the word "Revolution."

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, you know the lady who is overseeing TARP? She's using the word "revolution." She said, you know, this country doesn't come to revolution quickly, but anybody who thinks we haven't moved in that direction is fooling themselves, and she's using that as a good thing.

STU: Jeez.

GLENN: As a good thing. They are they are revolutionaries. Man, when will people wake up to this?

STU: And you have it's difficult because you have the word "Revolutionist" thrown around in so many different contexts and so many different meanings and, you know, you hear

GLENN: No, no.

STU: For example, it was a Ron Paul campaign slogan. I mean, was Ron Paul looking to violently overthrow the government? No. Are people who are, you know, associates of STORM trying to overthrow the government?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Well, yes, they said they wanted to. So I mean, there's two different ways here and

GLENN: Same with WikiLeaks. Same with WikiLeaks. This guy is going to be I mean, you know, even last night I was talking to the Judge and I said, Judge, you know who this guy is. And he said, no, I really don't. You know, I know that he's exposing I said, he's not exposing the government. He's a revolutionary. He is on the far left. He is looking for global revolution, a collapse and chaos. Those are his own words. He's looking for chaos. And he said, well, I didn't know that. And this is the Judge. This is a guy who gets it!

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."
