Glenn Beck talks with Ann Coulter

GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Let's go to Ann Coulter who we've been e-mailing each other back and forth a little bit on how scary the times are that we live in. I mean, Ann, any doubt in your mind that the right to free speech is in real jeopardy and our Constitution hangs by a thread?

COULTER: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. No, this is -- I mean, that's what is so troubling about an Obama administration and that is that Democrats will put in place rules and regulations so that the pendulum can never swing back again because otherwise, you know, you'd look at this and say, okay, it's going to be a really bad four years, there will be a massive recession, the stock market will go down. Hopefully you are not retiring this year or aren't counting on your income from this year. But if they repeal the Fairness Doctrine, which Democrats have been chomping at the bit to do well, for basically since Reagan repealed it in '87. And, you know, Reagan repealed it in '87. Less than a year later the Rush Limbaugh show began. Apropos of its name, the Fairness Doctrine doesn't apply to newspapers, magazines, television or Hollywood movies. It only applies to radio stations and that's about as fair as it gets in my book.

GLENN: It's really amazing, and I was just talking to Elizabeth Dole and I said in your lifetime have you ever seen a candidate come out, say more spooky things than this candidate has said, talk about, you know, that the Warren court, you know, wasn't so radical; I mean they didn't -- you know, they didn't get rid of some of the fundamentals of the Constitution put there by our founding fathers to stop the redistribution of wealth. I mean, you've got to be kidding me!

COULTER: I know.

GLENN: Somebody wrote to me today, Ann, and said, "Don't worry about this election. It's not going to be a big deal. Something's going to happen that will wake people up." I'm like, besides exposing him as a lizard from space, there's nothing else that this man could say that he hasn't already said!

COULTER: I know. It's true, although I must say that I am, I am impressed with the wisdom of the American people. We're basically running Tallulah's horse here, Glenn. And the economy is down and people are angry at Bush.

GLENN: It's still within 2 points. That's amazing.

COULTER: I'm amazed our guy isn't 75 points behind.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. It is really, truly amazing when you look at it, when you look at it that way. It really does go show the judgment of the American people. They know in their gut this isn't right. It's just, you know what it is? It's 40% of the population that pays no income tax.

COULTER: Yes.

GLENN: And is living on the dole.

COULTER: Yes, yes. We start with an almost 40% for the Democrats unless you are including this, which I suppose is fair, the Dole category. Everyone who works for state, local and federal government. I mean, that right there is about 28%, right?

GLENN: Yeah. It's really, it's frightening. I want to play a clip from an Obama speech that he gave, it was this past July and I want you to listen to this and you tell me what this means. There's two ways to read this. He's talking about a new force of about 250,000 people and he's talking about the job corps and, you know, the political people that go across the -- I'm trying to remember what you call those.

COULTER: Oh, the ACORN people?

GLENN: No, no, the ambassador corps, you know, the people that go over as ambassadors. But then he also says something: We must no longer rely on just our military for our own national defense. I want you to listen to this. Tell me what you think he means by this.

OBAMA: We're going to grow our foreign service, open consulates that have been shuttered and double the size of the peace corps by 2011 to renew our diplomacy. We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set.

GLENN: Listen to this.

OBAMA: We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.

GLENN: We need a civilian force. Is he just talking about, you know, the people that go overseas or is he talking about -- what it sounds to me like he's talking about a civilian corps here in America that is just as strong and as powerful, which goes right along with his green corps which is, put people in uniform, get them out there to make sure everything's green. Is this brown shirt stuff or am I dreaming?

COULTER: If he considers WETA one of the great accomplishments of the Clinton administration.

GLENN: It's amazing to me.

COULTER: I know, I know. I mean, Hillary -- without Palin, Hillary would have been a logical choice, as I think I indicated many months ago, as opposed to McCain because McCain is liberal enough. If you're a Democrat, you know, he's right in there with you on all the policies. Republicans wouldn't get blamed for it. We would have Republicans in congress fighting him. This guy is off the charts. No one paying attention can vote for him. I mean, as bad, as liberal as McCain is going to be -- I mean unless we get in and impeach him so we get Palin.

GLENN: (Laughing).

COULTER: Shhh.

GLENN: You know, I have to tell you, have you talked to Joe the plumber?

COULTER: I can't get through because every government agency in America is investigating him.

GLENN: That's so great. That is so great. That's unbelievable. I just spoke to him this morning. He is a fan of the show and he called in and I'm looking down at my phone screen and I'm like, Joe the plumber. He calls in. He's a really nice guy, really articulate. Dan, can you see if we can play that interview back here in a few minutes. Really smart guy. He reminded me in many ways of Sarah Palin in just like, it's not that hard.

COULTER: Yeah.

GLENN: I work with crap all the time. You flush it and you move on, you know? The American people have the answers.

COULTER: I know. Listening to him talk, I've seen him do some TV and he is magnificent. I listen to him talk and think, why can't our candidates ever talk like this.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right.

COULTER: That's the beauty of Sarah.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. I mean, and look what they've done to Sarah. I mean, they just --

COULTER: Oh, yeah. That's how you know you're getting their goat.

GLENN: Yeah, I know, it's amazing. Ann, thank you very much. When's your new book come out?

COULTER: December 30th. I just turned it in yesterday.

GLENN: December 30th, good. Then I won't be competing -- well, actually mine is a novel. So I won't be competing against you.

COULTER: When does yours come out? Before Christmas is my guess. I didn't get mine in in time.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, I'm doing the Christmas Sweater. It's a novel and it's coming out November 11th, I think, but it's competing against Stephen King who by the way called me Satan's younger mentally challenged brother. And I can't wait. I mean, I just hope I'm somewhere even within, you know, ten spaces of Stephen King because it will just drive him crazy.

COULTER: Well, so do I.

GLENN: All right. Well, thanks a lot, Ann. We'll talk to you soon.

COULTER: Talk to you soon. Bye.

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
