Glenn Finally Has Something Nice to Say About Trump

Donald Trump gave the convocation at Liberty University on January 18, 2016. Glenn watched and listened, hoping to form a positive opinion he could share about Trump. It worked!

Proud and Protestant

The real estate mogul was loud and proud about his brand of religion: "I'm a Protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it."

Two Corinthians Walk Into a Bar

Trump also quoted scripture, but it was a little awkward. His staff must have forgotten to prep him on the correct way to reference 2 Corinthians, so it came out "two Corinthians" and not "second Corinthians." The crowd responded with nervous laughter. Glenn thought Trump was telling a joke.

Let's Be Honest

A lot of people believe in God, but may not be regular church attenders or bible readers. It happens a lot, in fact, and that's okay---unless someone tries to make it sound like he is an active churchgoer or bible reader. Trump seems to fall into that category. It doesn't make him the devil or anything, but that whole honesty-is-the-best-policy thing is usually a good way to go.

Common Sense Bottom Line

After watching Donald Trump's convocation remarks at Liberty University, Glenn did some soul searching and realized he could actually say something positive about Donald Trump. Here's the good news according to Glenn: "I'm absolutely, positively sure that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist."

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Yesterday, Donald Trump was at Liberty University. And I was listening and watching what he had to say. And I thought to myself, "I have something good to say about him." And I want you to listen to this. Here it is.

DONALD: I'm a Protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it. And we've got to protect -- because bad things are happening. Two Corinthians. Right? Two Corinthians 3:17. That's the whole ball game. Where the spirit of the Lord -- right?

(laughing)

GLENN: Stop. Stop. They're laughing. They're laughing at him. Because the first time I heard this, I thought he was saying, two Corinthians, you know, two Corinthians, they walk into the bar --

PAT: And there's three Thessalonians across the bar from him.

GLENN: Like, you three Thessalonians, us two Corinthians are going to kick your butt.

PAT: Then two Johns come in. Wait. I think it's 2 John, and I think it's 2 Corinthians.

GLENN: Yeah. So they're laughing. They're actually at his -- listening to him and they're laughing at him. You can hear them laughing in the background. And he doesn't know. And it's really bad because it shows that no one on his staff went before and said, "No, no. Don, it's 2 Corinthians. Remember, 2 Corinthians." I got it. I got it. Two Corinthians. "No, it's 2 Corinthians. That's really important. Everyone will know you've never picked up a Bible in your life if you say two Corinthians."

STU: Yeah. He's never looked at it before. Let's be honest about it.

GLENN: No, he's never heard anybody say, I want to read from 2 Corinthians.

STU: Which is fine.

PAT: Which is fine.

GLENN: No, it's totally fine. Totally fine.

PAT: It's only not fine when you're pretending.

STU: Yeah, when you're lying about it.

GLENN: Yeah, because I think there's a special I'm sorry place for you to go to if you're lying about the Bible. You know what I mean?

STU: Not if you're lying for your own personal benefit though. That's much better, right?

GLENN: If you're lying for personal gain, no. There's a special I'm sorry place where you're required to say I'm sorry.

STU: Really? So if you're lying about God for your own personal gain, that's somehow bad?

GLENN: That's somehow bad. I don't know all the ins and outs of that. Do you guys want to hear the good news?

STU: I thought that was it, like he actually pronounced Corinthians correct.

GLENN: No, I honestly was waiting for the joke. Two Corinthians, right? That's the whole ballgame. Two Corinthians, they walk into the bar -- I was expecting him to go there.

Here's the good news. I haven't been able to say this about Bill Clinton, although I was a little wishy-washy about Bill Clinton. I was more convinced on Barack Obama, all right? But I'm absolutely positively sure that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, because I think the Antichrist would be more clever than saying two Corinthians. He knew both of them, am I right, Pat? He knew both the first Corinthian and the second Corinthian that wrote that thing.

(laughter)

STU: So I'm reading P-salms.

GLENN: P-salms is great. It's great.

STU: It's not as good as The Art Of the Deal.

GLENN: So you know the Antichrist is not going to say, I was reading P-salms.

STU: Right.

GLENN: You got that down. You got that down. So he's not the Antichrist. That's something we could say that's good.

STU: Though I would expect the Antichrist would come up with a trick to make you believe that he's not the Antichrist.

GLENN: I have thought about that. Because I thought about that with Clinton. And I thought about it deeply with this guy. I don't think so.

PAT: I think he's more suave too. I personally believe that the Antichrist will be more suave than Donald Trump. Don't you think so? He'll dress better even though he's a billionaire. He'll look better, even though this guy is a billionaire. I think he will.

GLENN: I don't think so. I think the Antichrist can look an awful lot like al-Baghdadi. I'm just saying could look like al-Baghdadi. Not necessarily al-Baghdadi.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: That's starting his own army of Armageddon. I'm just saying.

PAT: Well, he certainly is not suave. So that wouldn't fit --

GLENN: No. No.

STU: I think people now will is he with us now? (?)

GLENN: I thought he was for Cruz.

STU: Yeah, no.

GLENN: Now, he's saying he's not the Antichrist. I don't know. Maybe he's for Trump.

STU: You're a political chameleon. You really are.

GLENN: I really am. Okay. All right. So we have that.

STU: I can't believe the actual two Corinthians thing happened, and it happened at liberty, Right?

GLENN: Yeah, listen to it again. And listen to the crowd. It's sad. (?)

DONALD: I'm a protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it. And we've got to protect because bad things are happening. Two Corinthians, right? Two Corinthians 3:17. That's the whole ball game. Where the spirit of the Lord -- right? Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. And here this is Liberty College, Liberty University, but it is so true.

STU: That's so sad. He's just trying -- somebody was like, what if you read this and it kind of sounds like liberty?

PAT: But, again, nobody in his camp knew it was 2 Corinthians. No one said that to him.

GLENN: Or they just expected him to know. Here is this.

STU: Yeah, they probably expected him to know.

GLENN: I mean, I quoted that, when I was at Liberty University. There is liberty.

STU: But you knew it was second --

GLENN: Well, it's two Corinthians. I don't know which one wrote it. Either the second Corinthian or the first Corinthian. Sure, one was great. But when they got their heads together and there were two of them. You should see what they said. Back in a minute.

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.
