Glenn talks with O'Reilly about his new book, the NSA, Rand Paul, and more

Glenn and Bill O’Reilly don’t always see eye-to-eye on everything – this morning was no exception – but they had a great conversation about some of today’s most pressing issues. On radio this morning, Glenn spoke with O’Reilly about his latest children’s book, Kennedy’s Last Days, the NSA whistleblower, Senator Rand Paul, and much more.

O’Reilly’s new book, Kennedy’s Last Days, is a kid friendly adaptation of his bestselling Killing Kennedy. “I mean, Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing, you know, McKinley and Garfield and whatever else, I've read them. I've actually read them… And I think they're really, really good,” Glenn joked.

“The book that comes out today is the kids book of Killing Kennedy called Kennedy's Last Days,” O’Reilly explained. “Our goal on the children's history books is basically to introduce the kids to people that they may have heard of but, of course, know nothing about because the public school system doesn't teach history anymore.”

With all that is currently going on in the news right now, Glenn switched gears to get O’Reilly’s thoughts on what is happening with the NSA. While the reaction to the whistleblower’s actions continues to be mixes on both the right and left, O’Reilly explained that he believes the PRISM program is unconstitutional and he supports Edward Snowden’s actions if the government overreach proves to be true.

“The PRISM program is unconstitutional if it's actually happening,” O’Reilly said. “See, we haven't seen any evidence that emails are being bundled and sent out to Utah where they're stored. That is clearly unconstitutional. And the Supreme Court, it would take them 10 seconds to forbid that, and it's a violation of the law to do it. But we don't know yet because the whistleblower who is now apparently on the run hasn't really put out anything to back that up.”

“I have to tell you, Bill, I am proud to call you friend on that,” Glenn responded. “You're usually – I mean, you're never mealy mouth or wishy‑washy but you're usually not one to jump ahead of the game. And as you say, ‘Well, he hasn't, you know, he hasn't proven anything, he hasn't – yada, yada, yada.’ But for you to be this strong, I'm pleasantly, I'm just proud. I'm proud to call you my friend.”

O’Reilly reiterated that he is always consistent in his analysis, and the Constitution clearly states what is legal and what is illegal when it comes to government intrusion and privacy rights.

Glenn pressed O’Reilly on why so many on the right – including Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham – have come out against the whistleblower. Speaker Boehner went so far as to call Snowden ‘a traitor.’

“There's a lot of denial, you know, in that area. But again, we haven't seen any evidence that the government is doing that, if they are bundling e‑mails, seizing e‑mails from Americans and putting them, storing them for use in their own way as we you is an over at the IRS, what they did with private information, then it's clearly unconstitutional,” O’Reilly said. “And I think Graham and McCain would admit that if the evidence was put forth. I think they're operating in a theoretical world now, the war on terror world. I think that's where they are. I could be wrong. I got Rand Paul on tonight. You know, I'm going to ask him that question: What about your colleagues McCain and Graham, why are they on the opposite side. Maybe he will have some insight on that.”

It is no secret that Glenn is a big fan of Senator Rand Paul, and while O’Reilly said he generally doesn’t like politicians, he applauded Sen. Paul as an independent thinker.

“I think he's an independent thinker. I mean, I wouldn't say he's part of the establishment, no,” O’Reilly said. “But he's got to be sane about Iran and things like that. You know, if he's going to follow his father down the yellow brick road to insanity he's not going to get anywhere, you know. You've got to recognize the danger when the danger is hitting you in the head.”

TheBlaze broke a story this morning about the State Department considering a formal request from the United Nations to take in Syrians as refugees and allow them to settle in California, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia.

Glenn believes the refugees will be allowed to enter the U.S., but O’Reilly was not convinced. “How do you think the Boston bombers got here? That's how they got here. So, you know, is that a smart thing to do? Probably not,” he said. “There is a humanitarian situation going on over there. Turkey can't take them all. But I think, you know, with our problems with the jihadists that would be a very controversial thing. I do not think Kerry is going to do that.”

Ultimately, O’Reilly asked Glenn to bet him his Texas ranch that the Syrian refugees will not be allowed to enter the U.S.

“That's jealousy, ladies and gentlemen,” Glenn quipped.

But he did have one word of advice for O’Reilly. “I tell you what: you just consider one thing: Get the hell out of New York and the Northeast because the people are going crazy. And there's two kinds of people: There's half of them that don't mind if you spy on them, if you give, just give me free stuff and I'll live in any totalitarian state you want. It doesn't matter. And the other half of the country that says, I want some freedom, and you're in the wrong half. Just sayin'.”

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
