Glenn, David Barton weigh in on Tinkle-gate

While it's really difficult to feel badly for dead Taliban terrorists, what a small group of Marines did to a handful of dead Taliban and videotaped it is causing quite the controversy. What'd they do to infuriate terrorist sympathizing progressives everywhere? One word: tinklegate. Nevertheless, even Glenn felt that it was a poor course of action for the Marines, and he invited David Barton on to help him explain on radio this morning.

"I want to talk to you a little bit about the going‑on in Afghanistan with our military, and it's not going to be a popular stance and may not even be the right stance but it's my stance. I want to talk about the urination on dead bodies by our troops. Understand that when I get to my opinion, I speak as a guy who has not been in war and I understand war is hell, but I want to give you a little perspective and we're going to bring David Barton in as well who, you know, has sons who have been in the military and have served and I just want to talk to him about the historic perspective of the nation we should be, not the nation we are or not the nation that we ‑‑ that, you know, takes the easy way out. The compassionate nation and the nation that we should be," Glenn said.

"Here's what Allen West says: The Marines were wrong. Give them the maximum punishment under the field grade level Article XV nonjudicial punishment, place a general officer letter of reprimand in their personnel file, have them in full dress uniform stand before the battalion, each personally apologize to God, country and the corps, videotaped and concluded by singing the full U.S. Marine Corps hymn without a TelePrompTer. For everybody else, unless you've been shot by the Taliban, shut your mouth. War is hell," Glenn explained.

"The only thing I disagree with on this is the last line," he said.

"We have to start with, these guys were wrong. That doesn't mean that you don't understand what they've done, it doesn't mean that war isn't hell," Glenn said.

"I think degrading their bodies by peeing on them is despicable honestly. I understand the anger. I understand the frustration. I haven't had all of my buddies killed. If my buddies were being killed, I get it. It did happen in previous wars," he said.

Glenn cautioned, however, that "it's not a criminal thing and they should be disciplined because I believe our corps needs to be more disciplined than that."

"Last night I was just reading Ecclesiastes. Try this: There's no righteous man upon the Earth who does good and never sins," he said.

"In other words, in other words, if you're in the world and you are actively trying to change the world, you're going to make mistakes."

Glenn also invited David Barton on to explain how George Washington would have handled this type of situation. You can hear his explanation in the clip above.

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.
