Why is President Obama being called ‘the face of global white privilege’?

On Tuesday, Glenn played portions of audio from the 2014 White Privilege Conference in which some 2,400 educators and students were taught that racism was first invented in the American colonies. Furthermore, speakers at the conference claimed “racism is central to America;” “the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become;” and “this country was built on white principles for white people.”

This audio was captured by ProgressivesToday.com – a collaboration between Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit and EAG News’ Kyle Olson of EAG News – and the website plans to release their reports as part of a four-part series. Olson is also the co-author of Glenn’s new book CONFORM: Exposing the Truth About Common Core and Public Education.

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to some of the shocking audio from part two of the ProgressivesToday.com report. In the compilation clip, University of Iowa Professor Adrien Wing tells the audience “you can’t just look at the face” before slamming President Obama and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Wing goes on to call the President “the face of global White privilege.” Furthermore, Kankakee Community College Professor Stephanie Baran declared capitalism perpetuates white supremacy and privilege, in addition to racism and sexism.

Glenn, Pat, and Stu were particularly struck by the persistent mentions of tenure by the various speakers. Considering some speakers at the conference stopped just short of advocating for book burning, you have to wonder whose freedom of thought and speech these educators are interested in protecting.

“How she can be protected for unpopular speech at the same time is talking about banning speech,” Stu asked.

“It is just their speech that they are trying to protect. I got news for you. Why do you have the rise of neo-Nazis in Germany? Why are you having that? Because you can't talk about it,” Glenn explained. “I mean listen to them! There are things that you can't talk about, but we can talk about sex with our third graders. We have to talk about it. You can't talk about Nazis. You can't talk about racism… You can't put your finger in the position of a gun… You can't have a t-shirt… that says the NRA because it's too powerful… But let's hand out condoms to kids.”

Glenn believes it will take a Third Great Awakening to right the wrongs of our current society, but the longer we wait, the harder it will be. Glenn has literally been at rock bottom with the decision to die physically or die and be reborn, and he chose rebirth. What will we choose?

“It will be the Third Great Awakening that ends this again… Until you connect with a higher power, we're going to keep going down this this road and it ends in a cliff. And then when our broken bodies are down at the bottom of that cliff, then we're going to say, ‘There's nothing else.’ Everybody cries out for God when they are completely broken,” Glenn said. “I've lost my family. I've lost everything. And I had a choice: Die physically or die and be reborn. I chose to be reborn.”

After making that decision, Glenn admitted he did not wake up the next day and find everything to be A-Okay, but he made the decision to commit himself to a new path and, with time, things began to work themselves out.

“It's easy to check out. It really is. And it's easy to get depressed. And that's what happens when you're on the ground and you're like, ‘There's nothing I can do. I'm over. It's over,’” Glenn concluded. “And then you choose life. And it takes you a while, but, before long, you're not afraid of anything. And you know it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if I lose everything again. I don't care. I will not lose my soul. I will stand. My family will be proud of what their grandfather did. They will be proud.”

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
