Did Obama really flip flop on Gitmo?

Remember how just a few months ago President Obama and Eric Holder were pushing for the 9/11 terrorists to stand trial in downtown New York City? But then suddenly, it’s been announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will actually face a military trial at Guantanamo Bay. Why the sudden change? Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

“Isn't it strange that he does this now?” Glenn asked.

“He waited for six months and now he's doing it. It's almost like -- can I -- can I tell you something? This is an interesting theory and I -- this is -- it's not even a theory. It's more of an idea or a noticeable moment,” he said.

“The President, he starts out and he's, like, ‘I am so against these terror trials in Gitmo because these terror trials in Gitmo, do you know what they do? They inflame the Muslim world’,” Glenn said,

“They inflame the Muslim world. And so you can't do it and so he wanted to close down Gitmo because it's such a nasty place and then do the terror trials here -- just a couple of blocks away in New York City, away -- just a couple of blocks away from Ground Zero.”

“That would prove American justice to the Muslim world,” Pat said. “It would show them what kind of a people we are.”

Glenn jokingly said that there was no way that trying these terrorists a few blocks from Ground Zero would cause any problems in New York City, not to mention nearly bankrupt the city with the costs associated of putting that type of trial on in New York.

“So, then that [Ground Zero mosque] story just goes away. The President's thinking about it. But then he decides, I'm going to launch a third front in a third Muslim country. That's what I'm going to do. And I'm going to -- I'm going to set the world on fire by saying, Hey, kiddos, rise up. Revolution is neat-o. And so they do. And then Terry Jones sets the Middle East on fire even some more,” Glenn said.

“The Pentagon tried to make sure that nobody released these [photos] a year ago, but somebody decided to sit on these pictures for a year of our troops being dirt bags, five members of our troops, but then coincidentally on the weekend that we decide to go to war in a third Muslim country, Der Spiegel and Rolling Stone decide to print these old pictures which they say in Germany is setting the Muslim world on fire,” Glenn said.

“Then, just last week, the President has decided that he's going to -- he's going to now start to back the Ivory Coast candidate, you know. He's the rightfully elected. He was democratically elected Muslim candidate.”

“So, we seem to be on the wrong side there, as well as we have the Muslim world enraged in all of the streets in North Africa and throughout the Middle East,” Glenn said.

“What was he flip-flopping on? Gitmo. Out of all of the times that he could now reverse himself on Gitmo and say, We’re going to hold those terror trials. Out of the two years that he's had in office, now is the time to hold trials there at Gitmo for the 9/11 terrorists. My gosh, what an unfortunate flip-flop that is. A noticeable moment of strange, unfortunate timing.”

“Perhaps they realized that just late last week it became not to dangerous in the Muslim world to try prisoners at Gitmo. Is that possible?” Pat asked.

While it’s certainly possible that the President’s reversal is just a case of bad timing, it sure seems like a huge coincidence.

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.
