This is not a caravan, it's an INVASION

The migrant - you can't see right now but I'm air quoting - "caravan" started off in Honduras with about 2,000 people. It then more than doubled in size to 5,000 strong. As of this morning, there are over 7,000 people making their way North to the U.S. border. The line of people, when they're not riding in the back of several mysteriously paid for trucks, stretches out for over a mile.

I air quoted "caravan" because this is anything but. When was the last time you saw more than seven thousand people, marching towards another countries border, and carrying their own flag? The answer for most of us is never, unless you've served in the military. This is an invasion. There's no other way to describe it.

I've said it before, but this is a Honduran political stunt organized by a leftist group that has ties to the former Marxist president who was exiled after a coup in 2009. They never got over it, and they've been doing political stunts ever since to make the current right wing government look bad. The organizers of this invasion have ties to the Castros in Cuba and Maduro in Venezuela. This stunt is designed for media fallout, and it's timed very specifically for maximum exposure. Early voting for the midterms has already begun.

By the time they reach the U.S. border you'll only see two things on cable news:

1. Election polls and 2. The status at the border.

If the caravan is stopped in Mexico, this could actually help the GOP come November 6th. I mean, is there any greater example for why we need stricter border policies, or even a wall, after seeing all this play out? Mexican immigration officers were completely overwhelmed when the caravan first crossed into Mexico. They could only process about 600 people before the remaining five thousand plus pushed through; some on land while some waded across the water. If these invasion caravans are the new norm, do we have any choice but to build a wall?

This is the same tactic employed by Hamas.

But let's say the caravan reaches our border. Every single media camera will be pointed, not at the migrants, but at the National Guard and U.S. Border Patrol dressed in riot gear. Video will be rolling as tear gas clusters are fired at the waves of people attempting to cross. Pictures will be snapped of people showing off their rubber bullet bruises. It'll be mass chaos. And none of them will be reporting on what the migrants are doing, but rather, how we responded. You know who has to deal with this every day?

Israel.

This is the same tactic employed by Hamas. They charge the Gaza/Israel border with thousands every… single… day. And how does the Western media respond? By vilifying Israel every time. And that's what we can expect if this invasion caravan reaches its destination.

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."
