The world is on fire, and President Obama is partying with... Ricky Martin?

Tonight, a bevy of celebrities will overtake the White House for Música Latina: In Performance at the White House. The event, which will kick off at 7pm in the East Room, is in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, and will feature Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Natalie Cole, among others. As TheBlaze reported, the event is the second such concert held since the sequester went into effect and the 12th since President Barack Obama took office five years ago.

According to TheBlaze:

This is the 12th such concert since Obama has taken office. The last concert was on April 9 with a “Memphis Soul” theme. It will be the 52nd overall “In Performance at the White House” event, a program which began under President Jimmy Carter in 1978.

The White House said the concert is about “reflecting the influence of richly diverse Latino communities from throughout the Americas. The program celebrates the beauty and diversity of that music.” The concert will be broadcast Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. on PBS stations nationally and on Oct. 13 on the American Forces Network.

First Lady Michelle Obama will host a special daytime event at the White House for Washington, D.C. area student about the history of Latin music.

The April concert featured Al Green, Justin Timberlake and Queen Latifah.

“You may be having some real problems and some difficulties in your life, you know, and you might want somebody to pay attention to the economy and help free people up so they can create jobs,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Well, you're not invited to this. But there is a really exciting night happening at the White House tonight. Natalie Cole, Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin are all going to be performing. They are among the list of stars that are going to be performing tonight at the White House. And we've got another gala happening at the White House.”

“But it's only the 52nd overall performance at the White House,” Pat quipped. “Just the 52nd.”

“Who goes to these,” Glenn asked. “What is the point of these?”

“To have a good time, Glenn. Okay,” Pat explained sarcastically. “To have fun. To listen to enjoyable music by the likes of Gloria Estefan, Ricky Martin, and Natalie Cole.”

“I just think it's a disgrace honestly that we've only had 52 of these,” Stu added somberly. “Why haven't we had 520 of them?”

All kidding aside, Glenn explained why these events in particular illustrate just how out-of-touch this administration has become.

“But the real part of the story is our president is leading the life of King Louie. The same life of being inside of his own little world had his own elite friends. They all come over to his house, they all have parties, they all get dressed up, they all listen to some music, all elitist stuff, and say everything is good in the country. And all of his expensive vacations,” Glenn said. “If you really cared, wouldn't you just feel bad at some point? You talk about these people who are struggling all the time. Wouldn't you feel bad? I mean, at least Jimmy Carter would carry his own luggage because he was like, ‘I'm going to be a man of the people.’ And he wasn't opulent or anything else… It was a ridiculous thing to do, but at least he was trying to connect with people and he wasn't living a double life. He really was that guy in real life. I disagree with everything he did, but he really was that guy.”

“This president tries to make you think he understands poverty and everything else. He doesn't understand poverty. Look at the life that he's leading. Look at what he's doing. He's living a movie star life, and he loves it,” he continued. “Nobody holds anybody accountable… These guys get so out of touch with the American people because nobody will criticize them. In the end the ones who are going to be the strongest are the ones who are being attacked all the time.  Because we've had to figure out who we are. What is it we really believe in? Because nobody wants to be a pariah. I mean, honestly if you could be popular or you could be a member of the TEA Party, which would you rather be? You'd rather be popular. But now which one are you? Because popularity means nothing. And you are smarter than that… This is not a glamorous gig. I don't think anybody wants to be the person that they are right now. You don't want to be the pariah.”

As Stu explained, President Obama has been able to capitalize on that very fact. “And this is how the president wins votes,” Stu said. “Because younger people who haven't put all the thought into decades and decades of research are going to do what feels better. What's easier, what looks good, what their friends do. And they wind up voting for this moron.”

“Right. And so they are just doing it because it feels good,” Glenn agreed. “And you also get the added benefit of a Ricky Martin concert.”

“If we could just get Ricky Martin on our side,” Stu concluded sarcastically, “then the tide would turn. Am I right on that?”

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.
