Is your favorite candidate on Glenn's short-list of Constitutional conservatives to interview on his show?

For those who are asking.

I hope to do at least two sit-downs soon with each of the six or so Constitution-based conservatives.

Maybe your candidate is on the list, maybe not. Maybe your candidate will be on the list but refuse to come on. One Constitutional candidate will not come on and in fact will not return my calls. It is too bad as I really respect him.

On my list to interview in depth twice:

Dr. Ben Carson

Ted Cruz

Carly Fiorina

Marco Rubio

Rand Paul

Bobby Jindal

Rick Santorum

I have a yes from six of the seven just a scheduling issue now.

Is there someone you want to add on the list?

I think if we can get them to do what Carly did today, you will see them clearly.

First night: who are you and what is the fire in your belly?

Domestic issues (jobs, ethics, faith, hatred, the system, their record).

Second night: global collapse (caliphate, global economy, Russia, Europe, ISIS, reserve currency).

I hope you like the style of the interview with Carly. I want them to talk and less of me. I think they will expose themselves as frauds, if they are, over the two hours. You are smart enough.

I will do everything I can to help them "look good" - it is their job to actually be good.

If you watch my interview with Carly, I used different cameras and lenses to give her the best chance of visuals not being a distraction. (Live cable news is very harsh). I will do this for each and every candidate to give them the best leg up but they will have to answer the questions honestly.

It is amazing what someone in my position could do without the audience even knowing it to make someone look bad. I would bet you that Carly and her team didn't even notice, nor did you. But A/B tonight's show with last night's. Subtle but powerful. You would never notice, but it is there. One looked like cable news and one looked beautiful creamy film.

This is how it is done. Watch Barbara Walters specials with people. They spend 3 days on lighting. NOT KIDDING. It is all sub-conscience.

Maybe this is too much inside baseball, but I want you to know everything so no one can pull the wool over your eyes.

Look for "eye lights" when ABC etc. interview Hillary Clinton. Look for the softest lens. Look for leg lights on beautiful women. YOU WILL NEVER NOTICE UNLESS YOU KNOW. That is why it works.

I will make sure on my show they look as good as they will make Hillary Clinton look on the networks. But the rest is up to them.

If they treat the audience like an adult and as smart as they are, they will do themselves justice.

I would consider doing Bush, Christie, Trump and Huckabee but none would come on if invited and I also think that is a bridge of progressivism that my audience already gets and this a waste of my and your time. All of them are below the top ten on our audience poll.

We need help deciding who we should rally around. That is not for me to decide, but the American people.

I am getting heat from some saying I am duped by Carly. You will notice however, I didn't interject my opinion on her. Let her speak and you decide.

Will I vote for her or any of these guys? Most of them. You need to narrow it down. So far these seven I THINK I COULD pull the lever for but there is a lot of time left.

My guy is Ted Cruz, but he will get tough questions too. However, I will give you my word: no "ratings questions" or "gotcha questions" for any of them.

If I wanted ratings, I would do everything I could to get those on my progressive list and bury them. Beck vs Trump or Jeb or Christie! Hell yes, ratings.

Not interested. Let's do something positive. If I did do something with these three, I would be honest, but I would not "set them up."

These people are guests in "my home" - I will treat them as such.

If I did an interview with them, they will receive the same treatment.


If your candidate is on that short list, watch the Carly interview and if you think they should be seen that way, let them know to come on the show.

For those who are asking.I hope to do at least two sit downs soon with each of the 6 or so constitutional based...

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
