America's Example to the World: The Peaceful Transfer of Power

Regardless of one's political leanings, all Americans should recognize and revere their country's example on Inauguration Day.

"This is always a day, whenever there's a change in power, that makes me so proud. It makes me proud to be an American that we have this peaceful transfer of power," Glenn said Friday on radio.

For more than 200 years, America has passed the reins from one president to another with pomp and circumstance --- and peace. That's something to be recognized and remembered.

GLENN: I will tell you in just looking at the screens today and watching the television coverage of the Obamas and the Trumps are about to leave the White House. This is always a day whenever there's a change in power that makes me so proud. It makes me proud to be an American that we have this peaceful transfer of power.

PAT: Every single time.

GLENN: Every time.

PAT: Without exception.

GLENN: Every time. And there is something to be said for that that is -- it is unlike we do not -- and this is one reason -- and I know this pisses a lot of people off -- why I am so torn because I don't believe there should be special classes of people. You do wrong, you go to jail. However, because politics, and we know how politicians will use the levers of power to destroy their enemies. It's one reason why I'm glad that Trump is saying "We're not going after Hillary." Just leave it alone. Walk away in the sunset because every other country puts their opponents in jail. We don't. And I will tell you, I got this argument from the most surprising of places. Mike Lee.

I asked Mike Lee "Please tell me, Mike, somebody is going to go after the scandals with Hillary Clinton, and we're going to go correct this." And he made the best cautioned case of be careful. Because that sets up a precedent of you're going to go after your opponents and put them in jail. And then you get a bad guy who says I'm -- oh, really? You stood against me? I'll get you.

We don't do that. And to be able to show that to the rest of the world is great. This is a truly proud day for America to be able to see Barack Obama, who couldn't be more different than Donald Trump. And Donald Trump who couldn't be more different than Barack Obama. Get together in the White House and Obama reaches into his pants, so to speak, takes out the keys of the White House and hands it to him and says "It's yours. Here's the important thing I learned. Don't do this."

I think this is great.

RIAZ: I agree.

GLENN: So we're going over these scandals, and it's really unfair to do to you. Because I can't remember all the details vividly. But everybody in our audience knows these scandals. You may not be able to recall them.

RIAZ: I don't think it's fair. I'm sitting here shocked that I've never heard of them.

PAT: You've never heard about fast and furious at all?

GLENN: Fast and furious never crossed your screen?

PAT: Wow that's something.

FULL EPISODE: 'The Democrats' Hydra'

"As one falls, two more will take their place." Democracy does die in darkness and is being strangled in secret, back-door arrangements.

Disturbing details and explosive documents reveal how the Obama Deep State allowed the theft of a country and has set the stage for devastating consequences in our democracy today. Glenn explains how it's all happening under the nose of the president and, more importantly, without the approval of the American people.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
