Donald Trump: The Four-Part Series

In a short amount of time, Donald Trump has tapped into the anger created by an out-of-control federal government that no longer listens to the people. His solutions to the country’s many problems make great sound bites — but what’s the substance beneath?

In this four-part series, Glenn looks at the man behind the message, including Trump’s early years as a Manhattan developer, his grandiose claims about business dealings and successes and, perhaps most telling, the language he uses when talking about women. Is Trump the kind of man needed to restore America to her founding principles — or is he just adding another notch to his belt and title to his resume? Is he a winner who wins all the time or is he a showman putting on the greatest show of his life?

The four-part series is compiled below for your convenience.

Part I: The Tabloid Years

Donald grew up the son of a successful real estate developer. He didn’t exactly start in the mail room of his father’s company. He started at the top of the family business, which in 1974 was already worth $200 million. In today’s dollars, that translates into a one billion-dollar business. But Trump claims he didn’t have it easy. Here’s how Trump rose to the top of the Manhattan real estate game and began collecting trophy wives along the way.

Part II: The Business Resume

Winning is everything to Donald Trump, and when you win, you put your name on it. Trump Vodka, Trump Plaza, Trump Place, Trump Steaks and Trump University are just a few businesses stamped with Trump’s brand of glittering gold, helping him feel like a winner. While anyone with a net worth in the billions cannot be called a failure, Trump isn’t exactly the winner he claims to be. Many of his business ventures have faded into oblivion. His father bailed him out of a troubled casino venture by purchasing $3 million in chips. He’s defaulted on over $6 billion. Winning may be everything to Mr. Trump, but his record shows not only multiple failures, but also how low he can go. Ask Vera Coking.

Part III: The Chameleon

For as firm a stance as Donald Trump has taken on current issues, he’s just as likely to have held completely opposite opinions in years past. A political chameleon of sorts, Trump has managed to change party affiliations five times. He first registered as a Republican before changing to Democrat and then joined the Reform Party and later became an Independent — only to return to the Republican Party.

While Trump blusters about Obamacare, he is for universal health care for all citizens. He has flip-flopped on abortion, first being very pro-choice and then switching to pro-life. He hates the idea of guns but has a concealed carry permit and owns two pistols.

While he comes off as strong on the border and illegal immigration, he supports a pathway to citizenship. He has contributed to liberal candidates many times, including his would-be opponent, Hillary Clinton. Trump has even said both President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were doing a great job. Now that he’s running for president, his opinion of their performance has changed. What has caused Donald Trump to change his opinion so dramatically and so often? What are the pivot points that inspired these changes? Listen to Glenn’s rundown on Trump’s history and then you decide if these changes are genuine or not.

Part IV: The Recent Years

On the campaign trail this election cycle, Donald Trump has been touting the importance of leadership and having the right people around you. When someone lacks any type of record in politics and government, the best place to vet their credentials can often be who and what they publically support. In 2009, Trump stated President Obama was doing a great job and gave him a “solid B+” for his first hundred days as well as saying he would hire him. Not only did he support Obama, but he also agreed with his appointments – most notably a possible democratic nominee for this year, Hillary Clinton.

In 2010, Wolf Blitzer asked if Obama has “saved” us as a country and Donald noted that he had indeed. It was a totally different story in 2011 however, as Trump said that Obama had surpassed Jimmy Carter as the worst president in history. What changed to have Mr. Trump change his tune so drastically? Had Obama crossed him personally or in some other way? Or was it just that Mr. Trump was gearing up for a presidential bid of his own.

Whatever caused the change, Donald switched parties and became a republican despite having been quoted as saying “the economy seems to do better under democrats” and Mrs. Clinton saying “he’s basically a democrat.” Mr. Trump consistently touts his relationships with the democrats and how he is best equipped to work with them, but is that just because he is still ideologically aligned with them or because of he “negotiating genius?”

That will be for the American people to judge.

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.
