GOP Senate Candidate: We Need to Send 'a Huge Message to the Establishment'

President Donald Trump and Republicans need to remember what they promised the American people during the election. The Senate must send a “huge message to the establishment” about keeping promises like repealing Obamacare, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) said on radio Monday.

During his presidential campaign, Trump vowed to undo the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran, and Republicans up and down the ballot swore they would repeal the Affordable Care Act in order to win votes. These key promises and other campaign talking points have not yet been turned into action by Republicans, who now hold the White House as well as the House and Senate.

“I am baffled again,” Brooks said of Trump’s inability to follow through on the Iran deal promise.

Brooks, who is running for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions, said he would bring limited-government principles to the table if elected.

“If we get a principled conservative in the United States Senate … that is a huge message to the establishment, and they will be shivering in their boots,” he said of his campaign.

GLENN: Hello, America. A lot to talk about. Of course, what happened with the white nationalists. The Justice Department has opened the civil rights investigation into this. I don't know how much there is to investigate: They're Nazis, and they killed somebody.

But did the president go far enough? Was his statement also true? What role do we play in this? What is the future of a small government constitutionally minded people? Does that even exist?

Mo Brooks is a congressman who is running now for the Senate. And the election is happening tomorrow. He's a congressman for Alabama. He's running for the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. And there is an interesting race going on and a battle inside this conservative movement. The election is tomorrow. Mo Brooks joins us right now.


GLENN: Welcome, Congressman Mo Brooks. How are you, sir?

MO: I'm doing great, Glenn. How about yourself today?

GLENN: Very good. As you probably know, you have our favorite clip of anyone ever on MSNBC, when you were trying to explain the economic crisis we were in. And this is what happened.

VOICE: We were looking at going -- reverting into a depression at that point. Everyone -- the fed chairman --

MO: Well, I disagree that we were going into a depression, but go ahead.

VOICE: Well, do you have a degree in economics?

MO: Yes, ma'am, I do. Highest honors.

VOICE: Okay. So --

PAT: I love that.

STU: "Okay. So --"

GLENN: You can tell us, Mo. That was satisfying, wasn't it? That moment was just like, "Oh, yeah, that felt good?"

MO: Every now and then, they pitch a softball.


GLENN: So, Mo, tell us, first of all, your thoughts of what happened over the weekend in Virginia.

MO: Well, you know, it's very disheartening that there are still people out there who judge other people based on inherent qualities that those people have no control over: A skin pigmentation is not a basis for defining who we are. Ethnicity is not a basis for defining who we are. Sex is a basis for defining who we are. We should all be judged based on our conduct and how we interact with other people.

Unfortunately, there are still people in our society, on both sides of the fence, that look at skin pigmentation, sex, and ethnicity, when those should not be factors of concern.

GLENN: You reject outright nationalism and the national socialist Nazi movement?

MO: Well, I don't agree with socialism. I don't agree with Nazis. I don't agree with any group that says that your skin pigmentation alone makes you superior to another group. That's silly. I mean, skin pigmentation is skin pigmentation. You know, I've got freckles. Does that make me good or bad because I've got freckles? That's a form of skin pigmentation. It's so absurd.

And so, yes, I agree -- I disagree -- I disagree with anybody -- anybody who tries to define somebody else based on characteristics that they were born with. That is not what defines a human being.

GLENN: Now, you were -- you were a congressman who in 2016, endorsed Ted Cruz.

MO: I was his Alabama state chairman, and I was one of his national spokesmen for his campaign. So, yes.

GLENN: Okay. So now here comes this opening in -- you know, in the Senate. And you want to run for it. You're a great conservative small government guy.

And the president -- a couple of weeks ago, you were scheduled for an interview with us. Last week, President Trump endorsed your opponent Luther Strange. Any idea why that happened?

MO: It's baffling to me. Luther Strange is a decades' long Washington, DC, lobbyist. We all knew when President Trump declared that he was going to Washington, DC, to drain the swamp, the swamp was going to fight back. And Luther Strange is the swamp's candidate. So to me, there seems to be a conflict between draining the swamp and endorsing the swamp's candidate on the one hand.

And on the other hand, the president most recently was, rightfully so, complaining about Mitch McConnell and the do-nothing Senate. And the 60-vote rule that prevents us from passing our agenda. And I agree with the president, in that regard.

Yet, he endorses the person who supports the 60-vote rule that kills President Trump's agenda over the next three and a half years. So, yes, I'm puzzled by it. I don't know who gave President Trump this bad advice, probably Mitch McConnell. I do know the president is spread rather thin. He's got a lot of different issues he's got to focus on. But whoever it is that led him to endorse Luther Strange led him astray.

GLENN: If you go in, who do you caucus with?

MO: Well, I'm a Republican, so I'm going to caucus with the Republicans in the United States Senate. I do prefer a different leader. Mitch McConnell may be a nice guy. I really don't know him that well personally. But his job is to get through the United States Senate a repeal of Obamacare. His job is to get through the United States Senate funding for the border wall and stronger security measures. His job is to get through the United States Senate tax reform. His job is to do what must be done to get our deficit and debt under control. And, quite frankly, he has failed miserably on each of those different public policy issues. So it's time to try somebody knew, someone who perhaps can get the job done, someone more aggressive, more conservative, somebody who is able to persuade a majority of the United States Senate to do what our country needs doing.

Otherwise, it's going to be a wasted opportunity with us having the House, the Senate, and the White House.

GLENN: I've never seen anything like this in my lifetime, where they have more opportunity and a president who is providing total coverage for the Congress, just to -- just to snowplow through stuff.

MO: I don't get it either. It's baffling to me. It's puzzling to me. We have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reverse Obamacare, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try to get our deficit and debt under control before we suffer debilitating insolvency and bankruptcy that will do great damage to a country that our ancestors took centuries to build, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure our southern border. Just go down the list of things that you, in 2009 and 2010, are focused on, as you helped the Tea Party movement that gave us the House of Representatives in 2010, where we gained 63 seats, if my memory serves me correctly.

And this is our chance. And to date, over seven months of President Trump's presidency, we have had zero -- zero significant legislative achievements that pertain to the major issues that face our country, the issues that I just itemized. And that's because the 60-vote rule in the United States Senate has empowered Chuck Schumer and the Democrats to control our agenda. And that's just craziness. You've got a choice: You can either support an archaic rule that was born in the 1800s, while there was still slavery, or you can go with America. And I choose America.

GLENN: We're talking to Congressman Mo Brooks who is running tomorrow the election in Alabama. Running for Jeff Sessions' Senate seat.

Let's talk a little bit about North Korea. What do you think is -- what are we headed with this, Mo?

MO: I believe that you're going to see a relationship between the United States and North Korea, akin to what we saw with China under Mao Zedong and the Soviet Union, under Josef Stalin and all of his successors.

In my judgment, the mutually assured destruction doctrine will work to deter North Korea from ever launching a first strike at the United States of America. Because a first strike by North Korea against America results in a retaliatory nuclear strike by the United States, that would turn North Korea into a sea of glass. And every single North Korean leader would be dead. The North Korean leadership acts crazy. But I tend to think they act crazy in order to achieve a smart purpose. I don't believe that they won't commit suicide.

So mutually assured destruction doctrine ought to work with them to prevent a first strike from ever being launched by either party, just as it has worked with the United States and the Soviet Union -- now Russia and China over the decade. However, to be on the safe side, we need to bolster our radar systems and our interceptor systems so that we can shoot down any missiles that may come from North Korea. Having said all that, we must not be distracted from the bigger threat. The bigger threat is Iran.

Iran -- mutually assured destruction doctrine may not work because of their religious beliefs, where they believe that giving up their own life in the furtherance of Allah's will is worthwhile. And if Iran gets nuclear weapons, with missile delivery systems that can knock out what Iran calls the little Satan, Israel, and knock out the United States of America, even if it means the total and complete annihilation of Iran, some of these Iranian leaders may do it as a matter of religious belief. And so I would tend to focus a little bit more on Iran and the threat that they pose, given that Barack Obama has empowered Iran to get nuclear weapons and the delivery system sometime within the next ten to 15 years.

GLENN: So do you have any insight at all on why President Trump ran on I'm going to tear up that Iranian deal, and then has come out and said, "No, no, we can't do that." Do you have any insight, any feelings on that, Mo?

MO: Well, I am baffled again. Once you make a campaign promise, I'm one of those who believes you ought to keep it. And I do not understand why the president may have said one thing on this particular issue, dealing with the Iran nuclear agreement, while he was a candidate, and not fulfilling whatever his campaign promise may have been, during the campaign.

That's -- that's akin to repealing Obamacare. We promised the American people we would repeal Obamacare. But apparently, there are a lot of people in the United States Senate and the House of Representatives that didn't really intend to keep that promise.

And the American people need to hold their feet to the fire to ensure that we deliver on the promise to repeal Obamacare. You just can't go through the motions and say, "Well, I tried. I voted that way."

In the Senate, you have tremendous power to force things to happen. And unfortunately, we don't have enough people in the United States Senate right now, fighting hard to force that repeal of Obamacare.

GLENN: Talking --

MO: There's nice guy stuff going on, instead of real fighters to achieve our goals.

GLENN: Talking to US congressman from Alabama, Mo Brooks, who is running for the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. That election happens tomorrow.

Mo, what happens to the -- the conservative movement or the Republican Party should voices like yours be brushed out and lost? And -- and voices -- and voices like Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan or even worse, the Steve Bannons of the world are held up.

MO: I'm going to flip it a little bit and talk about what happens if we prevail. If we get a principled conservative in the United States Senate -- and as an aside, if anyone wants to help, please go to

But if we are able to prevail, that is a huge message to the establishment, and they'll be shivering in their boots. Okay?

This 60 percent rule that blocks us from repealing Obamacare, from funding the border wall, from dealing with deficits and debt, from getting rid of a lot of these giveaway programs that cause people to no longer respect the work ethic and that encourage the breakup of families, and having kids out of wedlock, because you get more money that way -- we can make huge strides, if we win -- if you elect Mo Brooks from the state of Alabama in this election, because it sends a message to Mitch McConnell, that he better get on the ball, that he better start working. And this recess, this vacation that the Senate is on right now, they should get back to work and continue to confirm every single one of President Trump's nominees to various positions. They need to get back to work on repeal of Obamacare. They also need to start thinking about new Senate leadership because it will be a debacle and an embarrassment for Mitch McConnell if after spending 5 to $10 million in attack ads against Mo Brooks and against Judge Roy Moore, if their handpicked establishment candidate, Luther Strange, does not win.

So we can send a huge positive message to the United States Senate and Washington, DC, that it's time for a change. We're not satisfied with a do-nothing Senate. We're not satisfied with allowing Chuck Schumer and the Democrats to be obstructionists because we let them. That's the message.

We have to win this race tomorrow. Then that message gets to Washington, DC. And they like keep their jobs, they might start working better.

GLENN: Mo Brooks for Senate. Mo -- M-O -- is where you can go and get more information and help out. And get to the polls if you're in Alabama. If you like what you heard, those -- that -- those polls open tomorrow. And if somebody doesn't get 50 percent, there will be a runoff.

Mo, thank you so much. Best of luck to you. And, sir, thank you for the years of good service in Congress. And we hope that --

MO: Thank you, Glenn. Thank you for all your help.

GLENN: Thank you. We appreciate it.

Glenn CAN'T TAKE Biden's Hypocrisy After the Supreme Court's Trump Immunity Ruling

Glenn CAN'T TAKE Biden's Hypocrisy After the Supreme Court's Trump Immunity Ruling

President Biden spoke after the Supreme Court's ruling on presidential immunity ... and Glenn couldn't believe what he heard. Biden slammed the Court's ruling, which granted former president Donald Trump absolute immunity for presidential actions and presumptive immunity for "official" actions. Biden followed the lead of dissenting Justice Sonya Sotomayor, claiming that the Court basically allowed the president to do anything, including go after his opponents ... Wait? Like Biden is doing right now?! Glenn reviews Biden's speech line by line and highlights all the hypocrisy within it.


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Well, I just don't know what to say. I watched the president's speech last night. And everybody coming out and saying, he could go after us. He could shut us down. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled. Donald Trump, if he's elected, he will come in and he will start putting people in jail.

Huh. I want you to remember that here in just a second. We will get back to it.

Here's what the president had to say last night, at a press conference.

It's cut nine.

BIDEN: The presidency is the most powerful office in the world. It's an office that not only tests your judgment. Perhaps even more importantly, it's an office that could test your character.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

BIDEN: Because you not only need moments where you need courage for the full power of the presidency. You also face moments where you need the wisdom to respect the limits of the power of the presidency.

GLENN: Yes. Stop there for a second. So, Stu, what would some of those limits be?

Because it's an awesome responsibility, to be president of the United States. But you can't just do anything. Right?

Like, what would some of the limits be. You couldn't just go out and kill people, right?

STU: I don't know. That's not what I have been hearing, Glenn. Over the past 24 hours.

GLENN: Really. Wow?

STU: My understanding is the Supreme Court gave James Bond license to kill, to the president of the United States.

GLENN: No. No. No, I don't think that's true. But we'll continue to listen.

STU: Yeah. Immune. Immune. Immune.

GLENN: I didn't hear the whole speech. So we'll go on.

I was thinking something smaller, like -- like maybe you say, hey, you have student loans.

I can't help you with those. That would be the -- the constitutional thing. But the president couldn't just say, I'm going to just forgive all student loans.

STU: Yeah. Yeah. That -- you're thinking of the old-timey America.

There was a version of America, where the -- you know, the head of the executive branch couldn't just spend $500 billion on a whim, without Congress.

But those days are long gone, Glenn.

GLENN: Okay. But it would go to the Supreme Court. If it was wrong, it would go to the Supreme Court. And they would tell a president to stop it. And he would.

STU: No. He would just do it again.

GLENN: Oh, it went to the Supreme Court.

STU: Yeah. They shot it down.

GLENN: Awesome.

STU: So he just did it again.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And then in a slightly different way. Like 1 percent different.

And then sends it through the courts again.

And, again, it will get rejected again.

Then he'll just do it again.

GLENN: Right. So that's weird. It's an awesome power. And, you know, it shows character. You know, when you restrain yourself from doing those things that you can't do. Anyway, I digress.

BIDEN: Respect the limits of the power of the office of the presidency.

Legislation was founded on the principles. There are no kings in America. Each. Each of us is equal before the law.

No one, no one is above the law.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. Stop for just a second here.

Stu, are we all equal under the law here?

I mean, is that true?

STU: It doesn't seem true. Uh-huh.

GLENN: Like, for instance, if you were held in contempt of Congress.

Right? You would go to jail. Right?

Like Steve Bannon just went to jail yesterday.

STU: Sure. Another Trump adviser who said, no. I can't share that. That's executive privilege.

They sent him to jail.

STU: Navarro. But it's all equal, right?

I mean, let's say, somebody was -- yeah. Not releasing tapes of testimony.

And they say, well, that was executive privilege.

And they were in contempt of Congress. They go to jail as well, right?

STU: No.

I mean, I don't know what you're talking about specifically. But what you just described does not sound at all like something you would go to jail for.

GLENN: Okay. Well, let's say you were the head of the DOJ. And Congress said, you have to produce this information, and then you didn't.

STU: Right. Totally fine.

GLENN: You would be in contempt of Congress.

No, no, no. You don't go to jail?

STU: That doesn't seem like a jailable offense at all.

It's like, I can see where you're getting confused here.

Like, for example, if you were to -- like, riot at a federal building.

Right? That's something you would go to jail for. It's wrong!

You don't do those things.

GLENN: Right. Right. The darkest day.

STU: Yeah, and then there's another separate scenario, where let's say you were to riot, at a federal building. You don't go to jail for that.

GLENN: Oh, wait. Was it just a federal building?

STU: If you're rioting at a federal building, you're going to jail.

If you're simply rioting at a federal building, you don't go to jail.

GLENN: So is it kind of like -- it's a very subtle difference, it's kind of like, when you're praying in front of an abortion clinic. You would go to jail.

STU: Jail.

GLENN: And but if you burn down an abortion clinic. You don't go to jail.

STU: Depends on -- are you burning it down, because they're not doing enough abortions? If you're burning it down because they're frequently aborting enough kids, then yes. You cannot go to jail. But if you burn it down because you think they're doing too many abortions. Then obviously, you go to jail.

GLENN: Okay. So if you burn down an abortion clinic, you would go to jail, if you disagreed with them. But if you burned down the people's business, where they were pro-life, I also go to jail.

STU: Well, they're pro-life? The owners of the business. Yeah. No. You would not go to jail for that.

Why would you go to jail for that? That's stupid.

GLENN: Okay. I want to understand, that I understand equal justice under the law.

I think we have it. Go ahead with President Biden.

BIDEN: Not even the president of the United States. Today, the Supreme Court decision. On presidential immunity.

That fundamentally changed. For all. For all practical purchases.

Today's decision almost certainly means that that there are no limits to what a president can do. It's a fundamentally new principle. It's a dangerous precedent.

GLENN: Yeah, dangerous.

BIDEN: Because the power of the office, will no longer be constrained by the law. Even the Supreme Court of the United States.

GLENN: Wow. Stop for a second.

That is news, isn't it?

Especially to the Supreme Court.

That is news. That no matter what the president does. Even if it breaks the law, you're not going to have pay a price for it.

I didn't know that. I didn't know that.

See, what the left is afraid of right now is what they're saying is, he is going to silence speech. Donald Trump will silence any dissent.

And that's not happening now. Uh-uh.

Or he would put his -- he would put his -- you know, former allies -- I mean, his former foes in jail.

For instance, let's say, you're running against a guy who Donald Trump didn't think he could beat. Then he would just make up some charges.

And then get the guy arrested.

And then keep him, you know, in the court system, until you finally got him into jail.

That's what Trump could do. Trump could do that.

Because of yesterday's rulings.

So that's pretty -- pretty frightening.

You know, I think if we're really going to go all the way. What should be terrifying, is that Donald Trump could just round up a whole group of people, because he didn't like them.

You know what I mean?

Just round them up.

And then put them like in a concentration camp. Kind of like FDR did with the Japanese. And that wouldn't be legal. You know, he would get out of office. And he would never pay the price. that FDR had to pay.

STU: Which is that he named our best president.

GLENN: Well, yeah. That's weird.

STU: Over and over again.

GLENN: Yeah. The guys who would violate these are always the progressives. Always.

The deep, deep progressives are the ones, who violate all these things.

Now, when it comes to just killing people, or doing something illegal, the Supreme Court case laid out it must be constitutional. So if the -- if the president acts in an unconstitutional way, then you can get him!

But unless it's -- unless it's unconstitutional, he can't do it. So it would be unconstitutional to round up the people that disagreed with you.

It would be unconstitutional to silence those who oppose you!

It would be unconstitutional to go after your opposing political foe, and try to put them in jail. All things that Joe Biden is currently doing.

STU: Yeah. I mean, it's funny, this ruling is coming from Roberts. Who is an institutionalist. Right?

If anything, we've complained about him a million times, because he's so unwilling to shake up things. Just because, you know, it happens to be the constitutional way.

I mean, Obamacare is a great example of that.

It will shake things up. I don't want to give the impression, that we're too impactful on society.

He's always doing these things. That's in a way, what this ruling is.

What he's saying is, hey. We shouldn't have -- I mean, in a way, it's designed specifically to protect Joe Biden.

Because everybody knows, if there's no immunity. What do you think Donald Trump will do when he's president of the United States, after what he's just been through. He will go in there, and find everything that he can. And go after Joe Biden on that.

He promised to do with Hillary. He didn't do it. He now says he regrets not doing it.

And now they've done it to him! So you think he will just sit back and say, you know, let me show you what I will do as president.

It's a shoulder shrug. I don't think that's the way it will go down. In a way, Roberts is protecting both sides from this back and forth that can easily come.

GLENN: However, what the president has done, is not constitutional.

And he should go to jail. Not for the things that he's done in office.

I disagree with all his policies. The whole thing, of, you know -- of, you know, taking away your student loans. And things like that.

You know, that's unconstitutional. But I don't think that's something that you go after.

However, the business dealings with China?

Yeah. I think that should be prosecuted.

STU: At least as far as we know.

GLENN: That didn't happen as president.

STU: As far as we know, none of that happened while we were president. That wouldn't help at all. I think what Roberts is doing here, is just setting a high bar.

GLENN: That's what he's saying.

STU: Of course you can go after a president for the worst things in the world. However, there's a high bar for you to clear. So don't bother bringing up your BS nonsense every ten seconds because it's not going to work. That's beyond the fact that we all knew what he said was true.

Official acts would be -- you would be having immunity for. Like you're not able under the law, Glenn, to kill people. Right?

Like you can't just -- like, you couldn't send a drone to start murdering people, in other countries.

The president, with his powers, as commander-in-chief, has -- powers that we don't have.

Like, we all know that. There was some sort of implied immunity for official acts. We all knew that. We all knew unofficial acts would not be covered here.

There was nothing new in this ruling. It was blatantly obvious. Yet they have to do this charade every single time. And act, oh, SEAL Team Six might come and just start being utilized to kill people. You know how many -- how many different layers of checks and balances would have to -- including SEAL Team Six, just going along with this.

Which they would not be covered to do. They would all get prosecuted. They would all be put in prison. But we're supposed to believe, that Donald Trump would be fine for doing this.

It's insanity.

GLENN: All right. Well, let me just end with this.

As the president was saying this, two things happened yesterday. Christian pro-life father of 11 is now facing over a decade in prison.

He will be sentenced today, okay? For a peaceful protest in Tennessee. It was a violation of the Face Act, you know. They were praying in the hallway.

What he said, yesterday, is this: Quote, it's real easy for me. I can go and go to battle and go to jail as an individual. And it's not a big loss.

The challenge comes, when you're leading your family through it. When you're talking to your 3-year-old and your 23-year-old and your other family. Von said that he wanted to pray to God, quote, every day. And get up ready to take on the day, with whatever circumstances believe my way, with a humility and a grace and a spirit-led life. That represents all of us in our society. Represents him and our community around us.

How many politicians order their life after truth and justice, versus power, greed, negotiation, and negotiating principles?

So here's a guy who said, I believe what I believe. God will be with me.

I'm going to go to jail. At the same time, Bannon also went to jail.

For contempt of Congress. There are now 15 -- I believe 15 people in the Biden administration that have been deemed in contempt of Congress.

None of them are being prosecuted.

But Donald Trump's people are. Bannon said this, and I don't like Bannon. Okay?

I don't agree with Bannon on everything. I think he's -- a thought leader, that I really strongly disagree with many times. But he should not be going to jail.

He said, I am proud to go to prison. If this is what it takes to stand up to tyranny, if this is -- if this is what it takes to stand up to the corrupt criminal DOJ. If this is what it takes to stand up to Nancy Pelosi, if this is what it takes to stand up to Joe Biden, then I am proud to do it.

You have people crying that they might go to prop. While they're putting people in prison, for the things that they have done themselves.

Please, Mr. President, don't talk to me about out of control tyranny from the Supreme Court. They have done exactly the opposite.

They have protected the presidency, while they are dismantling the administrative state.

"Biden Advisor" Reveals How to SAVE Biden's 2024 Campaign

"Biden Advisor" Reveals How to SAVE Biden's 2024 Campaign

President Biden suffered a major blow due to his embarrassing CNN Presidential Debate performance: He came across as way too elderly and now, many in his party are considering replacing him. But don't worry! His campaign has a plan! Glenn speaks with the just-as-ancient "Biden advisor," Wilfred, who is an expert at youth outreach. Wilfred (totally not Stu) lays out all the wonderful ways that Biden can reinvigorate his campaign ... and also why the President may actually be "TOO youthful!"


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Well, this is an amazing turn of events, from the -- I guess what do you say who did you say. White House spokesperson.

Wilfred. I don't know if I have your last name. Hi.

How are you?

STU: May I speak to Rush?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Rush? Let's just say, Rush doesn't work here anymore.

STU: Yes.

Right. My name is Wilford.

And I'm calling from Sun City Florida.

GLENN: Yes. Okay.

And you're a Biden adviser.

STU: Yes. I'm one of his campaign spokespeople. Person.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

And -- and it's my understanding, that you have some inside news of what happened this weekend. Were you there at Camp David?

STU: No.

GLENN: With the family?

STU: Positions would not let me involved in air travel. However --

GLENN: Positions. Yeah.

STU: I have been in close touch with the campaign.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

STU: I've been working in campaigns, like this, for quite some time.

GLENN: Quite some time. Really?

STU: And I watch the debate on the television set.


STU: And I -- and look, did Joe Biden have a good night?

No. No.

GLENN: No. He didn't. No.

STU: He -- it -- it was -- look, it was a catastrophe. Let's be honest about it.

GLENN: All right.

STU: Joe Biden. It's like the time I tried to make a move on Ethel, at the prom.

GLENN: Ethel. Okay. What happened there?

STU: She -- well, she seemed to be into it.

But she had so many layers of pantaloons.
And I was unable -- to get --

GLENN: Right.

STU: To get to the conclusion of the evening. And the sun came up. I was still trying to remove layers.

GLENN: Right. Okay. All right.

So Wilfred, we're really looking.

We're looking towards the future here, on whether he's going to drop out from the campaign.

Or, I mean, what has been decided?

STU: Well, the first thing that was decided, was that his entire campaign would now be sponsored by Prevagen.

So we can get the donations from the Prevagen Corporation. And really, if we fill him up, to make his internal digestive systems approximately 80 percent Prevagen. We believe multiple sentences will come out!

GLENN: Really? Really?

STU: Together. Yes.

GLENN: Right. Okay. All right.

STU: So there are decisions we can make, but this is similar to when I worked on the Fillmore campaign.

We had --

GLENN: The what?

STU: When I worked on the Fillmore campaign? Millard Fillmore.

STU: The Fillmore campaign. Millard Fillmore. When I was working.

GLENN: Hang on. I'm sorry to -- just trying to remember what year that might have been. I can't remember.

STU: Oh, you were -- well, you were -- he was lucky 13. Thirteenth president.

GLENN: Thirteen.

Okay. Good. All right. Go ahead.

STU: And I was working with him, on messaging.

And it was difficult. Because, for example, we must have really electricity.

Pretty much at that point.

GLENN: Right. Right.

STU: And we were trying to communicate to the people. Now, fill more was a much better communicator than Joe Biden, obviously.

GLENN: Right. Right. Sure.

STU: But he also beat Medicare with be and I'm -- I think that's a good thing for him to come back to.

Joe Biden beat Medicare. And Millard fill --


STU: Millard fill more did as well. And I think he can stand on that.

GLENN: All right.

STU: By the way, am I speaking with Don? Is this Mr. Imus?

GLENN: No. He's -- let's just say, Don does not work here anymore.

STU: I listen every day, Don.

GLENN: All right.

STU: And I would say, I'm concerned that Joe Biden may come off as too youthful.

For the American people.

GLENN: Too youthful?

STU: I don't know if you've noticed lately. But the American people love old candidates.

They don't want people who are coherent. When was the last time you watched a Sunday show, and saw someone.

GLENN: Are you there? Are you there?

GLENN: Yeah. You got that out. Are you all right? All right. We may have to come back to -- we may have to believe back to Wilford a little bit later.

STU: Just remember, Hedy, this is Hedy Lamarr. Am I right?

GLENN: Yes. Yes, you are.

STU: I have been a huge fan of your show since it began. And when you and Marconi were doing that one thing together.

GLENN: All right. We're going to let you go now. But thanks for calling in from the Biden. From the Biden team, that's Wilfred.

STU: I know my pill.

GLENN: Just hang up the phone. That's all you have to do is just hang it up.

Maybe -- may be a while. Let's move on, shall we?

Why Bill O’Reilly Predicts Biden Will Suspend His 2024 Campaign

Why Bill O’Reilly Predicts Biden Will Suspend His 2024 Campaign

According to media reports, President Biden’s family has encouraged him to stay in the 2024 race. But Bill O’Reilly believes that Biden will still end up dropping out. Bill joins Glenn to explain why he believes this, and it revolves around former President Barack Obama and Biden’s former Chief of Staff Ron Klain. Bill also gives his take on who the Democrats will choose to replace Biden: Will it be Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, Gretchen Whitmer ... or will Michelle Obama come out of hiding at the last minute? And can any of them beat Trump?


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: You know, today is the kind of day, that you miss people like Bill O'Reilly. And I don't say that lightly, or often.

But you miss the days where you can flip on the news, and you would have a guy who is credible. And he would have some sources. Or he would at least know, because of his contacts, what's really going on in Washington, DC. Well, Bill O'Reilly, of BillO'

Today is one of the shows that you will miss. You will miss a lot if you don't see it. He's on with us now.

He tweeted: The decision has been made. The president will quit the campaign.

Now, he tweeted that yesterday.

Bill O'Reilly joins me now.

BILL: Who is this? Glenn, who? Glenn Beck.

GLENN: Wow. Wow.

I got my first name. Bill O'Reilly.

That's a first to use my first name.

BILL: That's the first time. How are you, Beck?

I haven't talked to you in a while.

GLENN: Yeah. I saw your tweet. Then I think you reached out to me, and then I reached back out. Because I was going to reach back out to you.

All right. Spill the beans.

What do you know?

BILL: Okay. So the two people in charge of this are Barack Obama and Ron Klain. The former chief of staff of Joe Biden.

For the first two years. So they huddled and they actually talked to Joe.

I don't know whether it was on Zoom, or they -- in New York.

Obama was in New York, at a fundraiser, and then so was Biden.

But it's really tamped down.

And both Klain and Obama. And this is what my tweet was. decided that if -- so when I say that, what does that mean?

It means that they -- the two most powerful men in the Democratic Party right now, they are the two most powerful people, have said to Biden, you can't win.

You cannot beat Trump.

And he's the devil. He's evil.

But if you don't get out, you are helping evil. That's how --

GLENN: Okay. Hang on just a second. I don't think that that -- I don't think that would phase Joe Biden. He knows that.

He has a son. Anyway, this reminds me of Nixon. Where the tables turned on Nixon. And he lost the support of key members of the Senate.

They walked in and said, you've got to go. You've got to go. Now, are they going to offer any carrot or stick, if edgers go?

BILL: Well, that's an excellent analysis, Beck. You have to be partisan to be --

GLENN: Well. Gotten much older.

BILL: But it is very, very similar. So the Nixon people were telling the American public, oh, he's not going anywhere.
This is just -- he made a couple of mistakes. But, you know, he's a great president. Blah, blah, blah.

But behind the scenes, the Republicans said, hey. If you don't get out, they're going to arrest you. They're going to -- they're going to charge you with crimes.

And that's why Nixon went to the helicopter and waved to everybody.

Now, it's being presented by the, if you don't get out, you will go down in history as a villain. Because Trump will win. And it will all be your fault. 100 percent.

Now, Biden as you rightly pointed out, it's not he really -- he's not capable anymore.

Actually digesting that. So it's his wife that's making all the calls. So they go to Camp David over the weekend. They're still there.

I think their helicopter shows up in about 20 minutes. All right?

And she is going no way. No way we're living.

We're fighting this to the end. Jill Biden -- Joe Biden is just sitting there. You know, eating his sugar Frosted Flakes.

He didn't have anything to do with this. The fight now is between the party elders, and Jill Biden.

Who is digging it in, and saying, no. No.

Joe does everything I tell him to do. And he's not going to leave because we think we can overcome this. Now, let me give you the reason why they won't overcome it. That the Bidens may leave. And they may leave very quickly now.

They're trying to figure out, the Democrats, when to make this announcement. All right. They obviously have to get the Bidens on board.

But they also have to go to some kind of Plan B. Right?

So we will go to the convention with these people. They don't that have yet, okay?

GLENN: Well, how do they do that? And say they respect democracy?

I mean, there's no way to do that.

PAT: No. No. Yes, there is. Absolutely there is.

GLENN: Well, there's the superdelegates.

BILL: Yeah. All Biden has to do is say, I'm retiring for health reasons. Which you'll see. And I'm going to give my delegates. Whomever the party wants. And then Biden would be totally out of it. And they would tell him, go the delegate to see Kamala, to Newsom, to Whitmore, or whatever. That's -- and it's not that complicated.

LBJ did it, and it's ironic because he did it, and then the convention was in Chicago and all hell broke loose in '68. Well, where is the Democratic convention this year?

GLENN: Chicago. And all hell is going to break loose.

BILL: You bet. And all the anarchists and pro-Hamas people will be there.

Okay. So the reason why this is -- in my opinion, but it's more than an opinion.

Incontrovertible is that Biden's support was thin to begin with. He doesn't have core support.

It's all hate Trump support. Okay?

And so there aren't many Democrats. If you believe the CVS poll. To care if Biden is the nominee.

They don't have an emotional investment in Biden. They just want to see Trump lose. That's hygiene.

So he doesn't have a cadre of people outside of Jill.

And maybe Hunter, I don't know.

But he doesn't have that.

He doesn't have Congress.

I mean, the Congress people running around, undermining the hell out of him.

And his own people. You saw Jamie Raskin do that. My God!

GLENN: Uh-huh.

BILL: So he doesn't have a core support in Congress, or among the folks. They say they raised a lot of money from the debate. I'm suspect. But I don't think you're going to raise a lot of money going forward. Right?

GLENN: Okay. So, Joe. All right. So, Bill.

Who -- who do you think is most likely to replace him?

BILL: I don't know. But I will tell you who wants it.

So Kamala wants it. Kamala will not go quietly into the night.

And she will play the race card.


Gender and race card.

That's what she's got.

She'll play it.

Newsom, I understand, just ordered hair products, a lot more.

So --

GLENN: Right.

BILL: He obviously wants it. Whit miles an hour in Michigan, wants it.

All right. Those are the three right there.

Now, they would like --

GLENN: What about big Mike? What about big Mike?

What about big Mike?

BILL: Big Mike. Who is big Mike?

GLENN: That would be Michelle Obama. That would be Michelle Obama. Michelle Obama.

BILL: I'm sorry, Beck. I didn't get the big Mike reference.

This is -- it is -- I have never in my 50-year career in journalism see any famous person locked down like Michelle Obama.

You can't get a whisper out of that. Anywhere. So obviously, that would be the savior, right?

GLENN: Yeah.

BILL: But there isn't any indication one way or the other. That she wants to do it.

And those of us who know Michelle Obama, and I know her a little bit. She is a very strong woman. Barack Obama is not going to go, hey, Michelle, you're running. No.

GLENN: No. No. You don't say that to big Mike. Listen, let me ask you, Bill. Let's not talk politics.

Let's talk security of the country.

First, who is running the country right now? Go ahead.

BILL: The three guys there in the White House, the chief of staff, the national security guy. That's the Irish guy.

GLENN: Yeah. Look at this. This is what we voted for. The Irish guy.

BILL: Right. Right.

GLENN: Jeez.

BILL: Jake Sullivan.

Thank you very much everybody.
And the -- his counsels. But you it's a triumvirate.

In the White House.

Nobody ever heard of these people.

They get no -- every once in a while, they go out. But not often.

And it's an alert, by the way. Very serious alert on US bases overseas and amnesties about a terror attack. Very serious.

GLENN: I know. I know.

BILL: So we have an incapacitated president. Go ahead.

GLENN: You're right. We have an incapacitated president. What the heck -- you know, who ordered the -- our nuclear sub to surface in the Norwegian sea this weekend, to send a message?

And it's kind of important to know who is actually running the show there.

Because we're on the verge of -- of war.

If we're stupid!

And I can't gauge, who is actually making the decisions.

Should the president step down, from the presidency?

BILL: Yeah. That would be Sullivan. Okay?

Look, this is a very, very chaotic White House.

You know, I got a book coming out, confronting the presidents.

We're with every president. And I sent that to you, Glenn.

And I'm going to hire someone to read it to you. I'm going to pay somebody to follow you around, and read you this book.

Because it's unbelievable about the difference in some presidents, and bide citizen the second worst president in our history.

Trump exaggerates saying he's the worst.

Nobody is worse than James Buchanan. Who actually lit the fuse of the Civil War.

But Biden is second.


BILL: And it is so to me, because I do know what is happening on a daily basis. In the White House.

This man, there are three out of five days. And Axios has about 50 percent of this right today.

He's not even in the Oval Office.

He didn't even make it down from the residents.

That's how incapacitated he is.

And Jill Biden makes that call.

If you look at his schedule, and on the No Spin News. My news broadcast. We reported every day.

Most of the time, he has nothing on his schedule, but a fund raiser where he raises the teleprompter. That's it. He doesn't do anything.

And everybody in his administration knows this, which is why after the debate catastrophe, this is unbelievably shocking.

That they won't tell the truth to the American public.

The Democratic Party will not tell the truth.

This has been going on for a year.

It didn't just happen.

GLENN: Okay. Last question.

I have to get this in.

Is this -- is this better or worse, for Donald Trump, if Biden leaves.

Does it change it enough to -- to change the game, and people will just then say, oh, I will just go with somebody new.

BILL: Trump would defeat Joe Biden now no question. That's number one.

GLENN: No question.

BILL: Right. He beats Biden.

If Biden, when Biden steps aside, if it's Michelle Obama, that's --

GLENN: It's over.

BILL: -- formidable for Trump. That's trouble. Anybody else he can beat fairly handily at this point. Because remember, Trump got 70 million votes in 2020.

I estimate, the most he could lose on the 72 million would be 10 percent. That, again, brings it up to 65 million.

Biden will get nowhere near that.

Trump Immunity Case EXPLAINED: Alan Dershowitz's Biggest Takeaways

Trump Immunity Case EXPLAINED: Alan Dershowitz's Biggest Takeaways

The Supreme Court has granted at least partial immunity to former President Donald Trump for the actions he took as president. Attorney Alan Dershowitz joins Glenn to explain what this means. He lays out why this is likely a big win for Trump that has made it all but impossible for his Jan. 6 case to go to trial before the 2024 election. But Dershowitz also explains why he believes this isn’t over yet – chances are, he argues, this case will be heading back to the Supreme Court …


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Big news. And riots come out of France. This weekends. We haven't even had a chance to talk about that. But we will.

But in Paris right now, is Alan Dershowitz. He's getting ready to get up on stage. And speak.

But we wanted to take a couple of minutes. The decision on Trump immunity. Or actually it's presidential immunity came down.

And I think it's a win for the republic.

I think that's the way I would have ruled.

It was nine HP three. Alan, any just on it, and what it says?

ALAN: I'm in Paris. And speaking to you from the place of riots and demonstrations. And I'm not a part of that. Bit predicted exactly this instigation. (?) many any book, Trump.

Neither side would have a complete victory. And the Supreme Court would rule six-thee. And if at that if it's well-within the authority of the president. He has immunity.

If it's outside of the president. The question is, which is which?

Does TV to go back to the trial court? To determine whether the indictment had things that covered by immunity. (?) so this is the first step, in what what would be a multi-step process. It probably means, that there won't be a trial before the election.

GLENN: Right. So that's a win for Donald Trump.

ALAN: I think so.

GLENN: But is this a win for the republic? Because we can't have one of the branches going after the other branch, and then we also can't have people dragging the president into the -- into the courtroom, for everything that he does.

He's got to have immunity on official stuff, right?

ALAN: I agree. I agree.

GLENN: Do you agree with this line? Yeah. I agree with the line in general. I think it will be hard to implement and practice.

Everything the president does, he does as president. That's very hard to separate (?) than public acts. For example, the president orders the targeted assassination of Sella Manny.

Surely, he has to be (?) for any prosecution. But what if the president orders troops to have a coupe did he at a. And keep him in office. (?) hypothetically. He probably shouldn't get immunity for that.

So I do think, that this seems like the right line. And now, the problem is, it's going to be complemented by the lower courts.

And the lower courts, of the (?) District of Columbia. Are completely biased against Trump.

It may come back from the Supreme Court.

This may not be the last word from SCOTUS.

GLENN: Any just before we let you go? I know you have to get to the stage.

Any just at all, about what should be happening with the president on stepping down.

I don't know how you can say, he should step down from the campaign, and not as president.

What's the right thing to do?

ERIC: All I worry about is the alternative. Look, there's no question, that Biden, he himself admitted he's slowed down.

He's less -- less able than he was. The question is: What's the alternative. If he does step down, the Democrats may nominate some radical progressive person, who will be terrible to the country.

Terrible for peace in the Middle East.

We may see, you know, an attempt to get real radicals, as president and vice president.

So sometimes, the devil you know, is better than thively you don't.

And we'll see what the Democrats do. If they -- were to nominate some moderate person. That might be good. But if they use this as an excuse to let the progressive wing of the party take over, it won't be good.

GLENN: Alan Dershowitz, thank you very much. Stay safe.

ALAN: Always my pleasure. Thank you.

GLENN: You bet. Alan Dershowitz. That's an interesting thing coming from Alan Dershowitz, isn't it?

STU: Yeah. For sure.

The whole -- very interesting day here. And I think a very good one for Donald Trump.

This ruling going through it, I think exactly what he would want here. It doesn't give him, you know, full immunity on everything he did while he was in office.

It -- it -- and I think that would be bad for the country, right?

If he had this ability to have complete immunity, and any president to have complete immunity on anything they did. It would be completely ridiculous.

GLENN: But that's if we know that's what the impeachment process is for. First.

STU: Right. It also -- Trump's lawyers basically argued this. They even said, we wouldn't have the right to murder a bunch of people for fun.

GLENN: Right.

STU: Right? We're talking about official acts. Now, what the court is saying, is we have to have -- first of all, there's a presumptive immunity for a president, when dealing with these situations.

So you are going to start off with the idea. Okay. There is immunity. Because he was president.

Then there has to be some sort of (?) whether it's an official act or unofficial act.

They sent it back to the courts. (?) are these official acts or not. You rushed through this. (?) whether these were official acts or not.

There's some sort of process there.

Which, by the way, the court notes. We don't know what it is.

There's no actual official process to figure out, whether these are official acts or not.

So this is amaze of legal rulings and challenges.

And the bottom line to all of this, is basically, I could be wrong on this, Glenn.

I will admit if I am.

But to me, this basically kills the possibility of either of these January 6th cases, coming before this election.

Like, it goes from unlikely to impossible with this ruling.

GLENN: Well, if president -- here, let me make a prediction.

If the president loses -- President Trump loses this election.

It will -- these cases will just disappear.

If the president wins this election, they'll fight it tooth and nail.

And they'll drag him all the way through.

But, you know, I think people are tired of all of this stuff. Myself.

You know, the last part of the debate, when they were going back and forth. And Joe Biden was making fun of Donald Trump's weight.

I mean, was he really actually doing a fat joke there?

I mean, I couldn't believe it.

And finally, Trump did say. Let's stop being -- acting like children here.

I think people just -- you know, their lives are in enough turmoil.

They would like somebody to pay attention to them, please.

STU: It's -- look, yeah. I think that's right.

And this is an amazing day.

Stop for a second.

And go back a year. Right?

Six months. This is a possibility of four cases come you up against Donald Trump. That go up to 91 charges against him. And we had no idea where this was going. One them has gone through 34 convictions. We see the result of that. Has not moved the election at all. Everyone has seen that as a weakest one. It will be overtinder anyway.

It's nonsense in my view. That leaves I with the two January 6. Which on the (?) consequences of that. Regardless of what you're feeling. Those were the most impactful. If you were to get convicted (?) even though, I think he was -- obviously, the government was overreaching on all this stuff.

Well, both of those are dead before this election now.

GLENN: And -- and the fanny Bryce. Or whatever her name.

STU: Fani Willis. (?) I would much rather have fanny Bryce do it.

She is -- that thing is pretty much dead.

I mean, it's not.

STU: I think that's dead, especially with this ruling.

I mean, I think it's dead.

We will see. It could still wind through.

They could find their outs.

It was dead anyway.

Most likely, now. I think it's dead, dead, dead.

Then you have the documents case. Again, keeping documents to me, the lowest of consequences in this.

But still, he had trouble there. It looks like there's no question, that will be pushed past November as well.

So it -- we're kind of at the point where that whole, hey, this is going to be an election about legal charges against Donald Trump is over.

Whatever consequence has occurred.

We're going to see. This is it.

There's no more moving this election. On charges. By Democrats.

I mean, Trump had already won the back and forth on this. By getting it to the Supreme Court, and having it take it along.

Just, if they have it delayed. They had a horrible ruling. It would still be a ruling for Trump. Because of the way it played out. This is a much better option.

For him, it will wind around the courts forever.

There's no chance of this happening before November now.

GLENN: And it's the right thing to do as well. This is the right thing to do for the republic.
