Chalkboard Quiz: Did You Cheer or Jeer on These Obama, Hillary and Trump Issues?

Where do you stand on the bombshell report from the Washington Post that Trump leaked classified intel to the Russians? If true, was it treason? Should he me impeached or step down? Does it even matter if Trump is or isn't qualified to handle sensitive information?

In analyzing the report, Glenn first asked a series of important, revealing questions. How would you answer?

Enjoy this complimentary or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: All right. Let me talk about the Washington Post. And let me just say, the media and the DNC are celebrating today because they smell blood in the water. And they think this is going to take Donald Trump out. And indeed, it might.

Those on the G.O.P. side and the -- let me put a category out there, the always Trumpers, the ones where Donald Trump could shoot somebody on Fifth Avenue and they would still be for him, they would still say, "Well, Hillary Clinton." I don't care about Hillary Clinton.

Those people are also not even willing to listen to what the Washington Post actually is saying. They're going -- they're going to read the stories that are combating the Washington Post story without actually reading the original source.

Imagine -- imagine reading the -- the -- all of the professors talking about how bad the Constitution is or how bad the Declaration of Independence is, without actually reading either one of those. Do you think you would get the truth?

You can't argue a story unless you've read the original source. So we did. Last hour, I spent the time to go over the original source, the Washington Post, and to go over the audio of the Trump White House response.

Let me break this down to you: There's some questions that we have to ask ourselves first. For instance, one of the questions we have to ask ourselves: Did you cheer or jeer when President Obama said the 1980s want their policy back?

I, for one, I cheered. Remember, Mitt Romney said, "I cheered." When Mitt Romney said, you know, I want this -- you know, the biggest geopolitical foe of ours is Russia, I cheered. And when Obama said this...

OBAMA: Governor Romney, I'm glad you recognize that al-Qaeda is a threat. Because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia. Not al-Qaeda. You said Russia. In the 1980s or now, calling to ask for their foreign policy back.

(chuckling)

GLENN: So were you happy? Yes or no? I was not happy with President Obama. And nobody in this audience was happy with President Obama. The mainstream media and the Democratic Party, yes, they were. They thought that was great. They denied that Russia was a threat. We didn't.

Next question. Did you say anything like Hillary shouldn't be around classified information? She's not qualified to be around classified information if she doesn't understand how to use classified information. How did you feel?

VOICE: Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.

GLENN: Okay. "Intended" was the word there.

Okay. So let's just -- when Hillary Clinton -- when people said Hillary Clinton isn't qualified to be around classified information, if she handle it this way, she can't be the president of the United States. I agreed with that. I said, yes. The mainstream media said no.

Did you think that it -- by the way -- and we could go deeper on that. Just the word "intended." Did you think it was right that the mainstream media went and -- our investigators went in and said, "Well, what's her intent?"

No, we said, "What's the law?" Not what's your intent? What's the law?

Did you think it was treason or, you know, on the road -- did you say, "This guy is out of control, "when this moment happened with President Obama?

(inaudible)

GLENN: Okay. Remember this? The mic was on. And everybody on the right had a cow because he put his name -- he put his hand on the knee of Medvedev and said, "Look, this is my last election. I'll have more flexibility after the election." Yes, transmit to Vladimir.

And we all said, "Vladimir!" You're -- you're -- you're saying you'll transmit this to Vladimir? Did you think that that was on the road to treason? I didn't think it was treason, but I certainly highly questioned it. I questioned it. The mainstream media and the DNC did not.

Now, what does this tell you? This tells you that we have switched places. Because now -- now we're the ones -- when I say "we," the right -- we're the ones saying, "Yeah, the 1980s want their policy back. Don't you understand?" The Republicans -- the Republicans are saying, "The Russians are our friends." And the Democrats -- the Democrats, the people who have never been against Russia, even when it was the Soviet Union, we're the ones now saying -- we're the ones saying, "It doesn't matter. And that's not what he intended. And, yes, maybe he leaked a little classified information to the Russians." And it's the Democrats saying, "He's not qualified to be president if he doesn't know how to handle sensitive information."

Is it treason when Obama said, "I need more time. Transmit to Vladimir?" The Democrats now have a problem with talking to the Russians. And Donald Trump is saying, "I'm just -- I'm just talking to the Russians." So we've switched sides.

Now, in 2011, I showed you a chalkboard that said, "The left, the communists, the fascists, the anarchists, and the Islamists will work together to cause chaos and destabilize the Middle East, Europe, and the western world." Can we all agree that a lot of that is happening right now?

They're not plotting. I've said back in 2011. It's not that they're all working together to -- to plot and say, "Oh -- okay. You do this. And then I'm going to do that." But they are seeing mutually beneficial opportunities. And they each think that they're going to destroy the other one in the end, but they have a common enemy: The United States. And so what are they doing? They're causing chaos.

Before I get fully into the Washington Post, let me talk a little bit about chaos. Because chaos is exactly what we're feeling right now. This is the underlying problem in America.

It is chaos in everything we do. Because we've disrupted everything.

Stu, how many genders are there?

STU: The two.

GLENN: Thank you.

JEFFY: What?

GLENN: Thank you. Two.

PAT: Why the hate?

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: Why?

JEFFY: Thank you.

PAT: Why the hate?

GLENN: Listen to what's happening here. Even in jokes, when I ask that question, there are people all across going, I don't know. Is the number up to 92 now?

JEFFY: It might even be more.

GLENN: It might even be more. I know it was 82. And then I thought I saw 92, but I'm not sure anymore. Two is the answer. Two genders is the answer.

Now, if you want to change that, good, then you can change that. But you have to build a case over time. Otherwise, it causes confusion, otherwise known as chaos.

If I hold my finger up like a gun, is that dangerous?

JEFFY: Whoa, whoa.

GLENN: No. Well, yes.

PAT: Yeah, it's a lookalike firearm.

JEFFY: Thank you.

GLENN: Yeah. What is that doing? It's causing chaos. We can't trust the president. We can't trust the media. We can't trust our police. We can't trust our schools. What is that causing? Chaos.

Everything that we're doing, even those things that we do with good intent, is causing chaos. It is causing us to question everything. Even in a game of tag, you have home. Just get home. Go to home base. Let me take you home.

Do you understand your home? Do you understand what's going on? Do you understand your kid's homework? Do you understand Common Core, as you're trying to help them out? How about, do you understand what they're even saying online? Do you understand what's going on online? Do you feel comfortable that your kids and your family is safe from the outside influences, even in your own home? Because I don't.

I feel like we're keeping chaos at bay. Do you remember -- do you remember what I talked about when I talked about the Twelfth Imam. The Twelfth Imam will return.

Now, he is, according to Twelvers, and you don't have to believe this. You just have to believe that they do. The people in Iran, some of them, the ones that are in charge, believe in something called the Twelfth Imam. The Twelfth Imam is going to crawl out of a well at a time of great bloodshed when the world is washed with blood. And the way to get him to hasten the return of the promised one is to create chaos.

Let me hasten the return of the promised one. Well, that -- if you look at their holy scriptures and what they believe and you look at our holy scriptures and what we believe, in the book of Revelation and you invert them -- if you take -- if you take the Twelfth Imam's scriptures of the prophecy of the end time and you read them, you're reading the inverse of book of Revelations. You're reading the manual of the bad guy.

The bad guy -- it's almost as if they took the Book of Revelation -- and you could make a case that it wasn't prophecy. That that's what they did. I don't know. But you could make the case that they just took it and just said, "We're going to screw with those Christians. We're going to be the bad guys."

And that is caused by chaos. So the people in the Middle East have reason for chaos. Russia, as we have told you, one of the main advisers to Putin. His symbol of his political party is the ancient symbol of chaos.

So now, how do we reduce chaos? On this particular story, how is it we are to behave? What will get us through this story? How can we understand this story? How can we make sense of this story? How can we make -- how can we move forward with this story?

It's not that hard. And I'll give that to you. And how the media is also missing a greater point on what they exposed over the weekend.

Give you that coming up in a second. First, this.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"

NY Post editor speaks out after 'Big Tech' SILENCES bombshell story on Hunter Biden & Ukraine

NY Post Opinion Editor Sohrab Ahmari tried posting a link on Twitter to the bombshell story his newspaper broke about newly obtained emails between Hunter Biden and Burisma officials in Ukraine. But he was blocked. According to Twitter, the story was "potentially harmful." Yeah, harmful to the Joe Biden campaign… because this story — if verified to be true — is the "smoking gun" that threads ALL the pieces of the Biden, Ukraine saga together. But instead of allowing voters to make their own decisions in the upcoming election, it seems Big Tech is doing what it can to gate keep in new, dangerous ways.

How did a repair shop obtain Hunter Biden's alleged laptop?

This might be the craziest story of 2020 so far. So crazy, in fact, that Glenn and Stu have a hard time believing it's fully true. New, damning emails were just unveiled between a top businessman at energy company Burisma and Joe Biden's son, Hunter, discussing how he could "use [his] influence" on the company's behalf. But that's not the insane part...the emails were discovered on a laptop, possibly Hunter Biden's, that was mysteriously abandoned at a computer repair shop. So, is it fake news? The work of a foreign influence? Or did Hunter not think this through? Either way, the laptop is in the hands of a FBI investigation now, so the Biden family/Ukraine saga lives on...

'You have about 3 weeks to prepare for INSANITY': Glenn Beck issues warning ahead of election

Do you feel like something big is coming with this election? Whether it's societal collapse or just widespread unrest, it feels like "evil is washing over the world right now," said Glenn Beck on his radio program.

"I think these are the beginnings of the days that have been foretold," Glenn stated. He urged Americans to prepare — physically, spiritually, and mentally — but also warned against adding to any violence.

"We will not be counted as 'helpers', if you will, if we are engaging in violence. That is different than protecting your family, your home … but for those who are thinking, 'I'm going to get a group together.' That is not the way to go," Glenn said.

"You have about three weeks to prepare for insanity. It may not happen and I pray it does not happen. But I can't recommend highly enough that you prepare food storage. That you prepare for your home to be secure. That you have met with your family and your children, and you know where you're supposed to go if there is a problem. That you prepare financially. And then you've got to do your homework and prepare educationally. Do you have a physical copy of the Constitution of the United States and the Declaration of Independence? You need that," he advised.

Glenn also encouraged listeners to prepare spiritually, to work on establishing a strong relationship with "the spirit", to ask for advice, and to obey the answer.

"You also have to prepare mentally," he added. "We are going to be leaving things behind us. and I mean that historically. I think things are going to change. Don't pine for the good old days. Look forward to the future."
