The great Wile E. Coyote, ACME bomb scare of 2018

Nine suspicious packages and eight - well what do I call things - extremely ridiculous looking improvised explosive devices, or ERL IEDs, have been counted so far. The Clinton's, the Obama's, Eric Holder, John Brennan (care of CNN), Debbie Wasserman Schultz, George Soros, Maxine Waters and even Robert De Niro were all recipients of these ERL IEDs.

So first of all these "pipe bombs"... to get an accurate comparison you'd have to watch a few Warner Brothers Saturday morning cartoons to see anything even remotely close. Pipe bombs are usually made from steel piping, but these were constructed from PVC pipe. The reason steel is always used over PVC is because the entire purpose of the bomb is to utilize the steel shrapnel when it explodes. This attacker, who we'll give the codename of Wile E. Coyote, made his bomb out of... plastic! The devices also had protruding wires coming out of the PVC pipe with a big ridiculous looking digital timer taped to it. Again, this is not typical pipe bomb construction as all of the wires and the detonator are usually concealed inside the pipe.

So in other words, this device was the equivalent of Wile E. Coyote leaving eight overly large sticks of dynamite with a big alarm clock lashed to it with the words ACME bomb stamped on the side. Oh, and a big pile of bird seed next to it to attract the roadrunner.

And I didn't even mention the fact that a parody ISIS flag was taped to the device which is actually a right wing meme. And if you thought it couldn't get even more silly, the meme quotes Larry the Cable Guy.

None of these devices detonated. They had zero chance of ever making it through security screening, and Wile. E. Coyote must have known that. You think Hillary Clinton actually personally checks her mailbox everyday to see if her Amazon Prime order came in? You think George Soros does? Every person that has been sent one of these packages has mail screening, and these devices were designed not to kill, but to be detected, caught and seen. Wile E. Coyote wanted a media circus, and boy oh boy did he get one.

Now I'm not going to speculate who Wile E. really is. Is he a right wing nut or a left wing nut looking to change the narrative before the midterms… no one knows yet. But that's not stopping the left from jumping on this. No way… never let a crisis go to waste. By noon yesterday, Paul Waldman of the Washington Post already had an article out blaming Donald Trump:

Given what Trump has done and said, this was absolutely predictable. In fact, it's a wonder that it took this long. It's not just that Trump advocates violence against his political opponents — though he does. It's that everything about his rhetoric pushes his supporters in that direction…

When has the president actually called for violence? Calling the media Fake News is bad, but is that in any way equivalent to, oh I don't know, encouraging you're electorate to harass Republicans at their homes, restaurants or places of business? *Cough* Maxine Waters. Is it equivalent to declaring the end of civility? *Clears throat* Hillary Clinton. I could go on, but we all know the left's narrative that you heard yesterday, and will continue until the midterms, is complete bull.

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate.

And many of our friends in the left leaning main stream media were just utterly shocked that this kind of attack occurred. One person remarked how they'd never seen anything like this directed at one side of the spectrum. Seriously? I guess that's true if your memory doesn't go back as far as - oh I don't know - literally just a few weeks ago! Suspected ricin letters were just sent to the White House, James Mattis, FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson and Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson. Did they forget this just happened?!

And as far as the identity of Wile E. Coyote, for those of you in the mainstream media, it's best not to speculate. If you don't know… say you don't know. Do that and you might receive the unthinkable. Something you've lost long ago… a little credibility.

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."
