Obama mum on Iranian protests

In a surprise to absolutely no one at The Glenn Beck Program, protests are starting to break out in more Middle Eastern countries, as protestors have been emboldened by the success of Egypt’s revolution. But why hasn’t President Obama come out in support of these new riots in countries like Iran? Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

“Iranian police used tear gas and electric prods to crack down on the country's biggest anti‑government protest in at least a year.  Demonstrators, booed by activism in the Middle East returned to the country's streets by the tens of thousands yesterday.  The opposition reported that tear gas had been used and fired near Tehran University and the day planned for anti‑government rallies began largely peacefully, according to witnesses, with protestors marching silently or sitting in chanting,” Glenn read.

“But as common demonstrators' rank swelled, police and antiriot forces lined the streets, ordered all the shops to be shut down and responded at times with force, according to witnesses and opposition websites.  In a repeat of the official crackdown that helped snuff out months of spirited opposition rallies years ago, by day's end, online videos showed garbage bins on fire, protestors throwing rocks at police, and crowds clashing with motorcycle‑mounted members of the pro‑regime Basij militia.”

“Monday's protest came as calls for the regime change has led to the popular ousters of Egypt's Hosni Mubarak and the leader of Tunisia.  They mark a broadening from Iranian rallies that drew hundreds of thousands through 2009 and early 2010.”

“The rallies targeted what opposition leaders say was flawed presidential election.  They say it was ‑‑ they say unfairly returned President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power.  The protests yesterday demanded that the supreme leader Ayatollah Khomeini, the core power in the Islamic republic, step down.”

“Isn't it amazing that the administration has nothing to say about this?” Pat asked.

“No, no, no.  They sent Hillary Clinton out.”

“Only the president of the United States has the bully pulpit.  When the president of the United States comes out and says we support the people of Iran, we support the people of Iran on the street, that sends ripples all the way across the world.  That emboldens the people on the streets in Iran.  For him to say nothing is an outrage,” Glenn said.

“He's such a cost‑cutter and now he's doing the same thing with words.  He's just cutting them out.  For more impact.” Stu joked.

“Where is the president?  The silence on that question is deafening.”

UPDATE: After Glenn discussed this on radio, The President finally made mention following prompting by reporters.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
