Glenn & S.E. Cupp react to GOP debate

Who performed well at the debate last night? Who didn't? Glenn interviewed S.E. Cupp on the program today to talk about all things debate, especially the recent rise of Newt Gingrich. S.E. takes issue with this recent surge, questioning conservatives as to why they are willing to ignore the many betrayals to conservatism Newt has committed - some this year.

Who did S.E. think won the debate?

She explained, "I think Mitt Romney did a great job. He sounded strong on national security, he made a really convicting case for Israel and a real flare show of mission for Mitt to say, I want you to know that my first trip overseas as president of the United States will be to Israel to tell her that we stand strong with her. It was a really emotional moment. And he's a very disciplined guy. So it was good to see, I think. And kind of what he needed to do."

Pat, however, wondered if Romney's support came after listening to a certain radio program with a certain host who held a certain event in a certain Middle Eastern country *coughGlennBeckcough*.

"I have never heard him speak with passion on Israel before. Hmmm. That's interesting," Pat said.

What does S.E. think of Newt Gingrich?

"I think people have been very afraid to tell Newt Gingrich what they think for years. And frankly I want to start by saying we all know he's the smartest guy in every room. That goes without saying. You know, I've interviewed him a dozen times over the past, you know, five or six years, and he is. He is impressively smart. But he's also incredibly arrogant. And let's be perfectly honest: He's kind of a terrible person."

"I mean, there's such reverence around people like Bill Clinton and Newt Gingrich. It's like we've completely forgotten that they're terrible people. And I'll make this analogy. I said the same thing about let's say someone like Michael Vick. When he did what he did, I was outraged. He went to jail. When they let him back in the NFL, I was outraged again. And people said, look, he served his time. What do you want him to do? Never be a part of society again? And I said, no, but I don't need to reward him with a multimillion dollar contract on a pedestal in a place of importance and power, and I don't think he deserves it. And that's how I feel about Newt."

"I talked to a lot of people who said they really like Newt because they want to see him debate Obama, and who doesn't. That would be a great show. I would watch with popcorn and beer. But that's not a reason you elect a president," Cupp said.

How does she feel about accusations that Bachmann released confidential information while on stage?

"I like the double stories. I mean, this is the same group of people who said that she ‑‑ no one in congress tells her anything, she's barely there, she never wins any fights, she doesn't know anything. And yet she is trusted with classified information that she just leaked on stage. I mean, the irony knows no bounds. I thought she did really well."

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.
