Glenn talks to Senator Lieberman



GLENN: That's tonight we're going to be covering that at 6:00 Eastern time. Stu, are you doing shots all night? Is that what you are doing every time something is called for a Democrat?

STU: No, not doing that for a Democrat. We may have a couple of participants from our staff who would volunteer doing that, which is such a shocker.

GLENN: Yeah, the alcoholics on the staff. I mean, the recovering alcoholic is not doing that. But all those that I have strangely hired and put around me going, "Glenn, it's just one; it's no big deal."

STU: Hugh Hefner, Hugh Hefner has just called. Let's do another shot.

GLENN: Is he going to be watching all of the -- he's going to be specifically watching.

STU: MSNBC, just to see how much tingling goes on with the staff.

GLENN: Full-fledged --

STU: Tingle.

GLENN: I mean, 30 Rock is like, you know, orgasmatronic over there. That's all that is. It's just sitting there. It's going to vibrate tonight.

STU: They are going to get like Dick Clark to host that thing on MSNBC. It's going to be like a giant party countdown. It is going to be the greatest moment in Keith Olbermann's life.

GLENN: It is.

STU: Congratulations.

GLENN: It is. That guy is so angry, just so angry.

STU: How great was the sketch on Saturday Night Live about that, with Ben Affleck. How fantastic is that.

GLENN: Who is that person here? Lynn who has been holding for a while. Hi, Lynn.

CALLER: Hi, Glenn.

GLENN: You were calling about the Olbermann thing, right?

CALLER: I was hoping to hear about it Monday and then talk about it today. I thought they did justice to his personality.

GLENN: Oh, you know what? A tingle went up to my leg to know that it was Ben Affleck that did it.

CALLER: I know.

GLENN: I mean, I couldn't believe it. And did you notice? Maybe it was just me wanting to read more into it. It seemed to be done with glee.

CALLER: It was. I think he actually cracked up a couple of times when he was doing it.

GLENN: Yeah. And it's not -- I don't think it was done in the done in the spirit of just good-natured ribbing. It seemed as though they really did not like him.

CALLER: Well, I know you'd think somebody -- or someone reported that he showed up at the set and Affleck was not comfortable with that when he was there.

GLENN: Well, what was it, Stu? Were you the one who told me what Olbermann said? "You know, I just wanted to see exactly what was going on so we could all laugh together." And you know that he wasn't laughing. He is not the kind of guy that is going to take --

STU: He will certainly say that he is, you know. "Oh, it was all in good fun and everything else." But you look at it and I think there is an element that has been brewing for -- I think really when it was highlighted by the, "Shut your damn mouth, George Bush" and also when he was hammering Hillary Clinton in that one about how she should drop out of the race and everything. And I think it's come to the point now where liberals are embarrassed by Keith Olbermann. Like they are getting to that point where they are like, "All right, we don't want people to think we're like this guy." And there's a lot of people. I mean, you know, like there's a lot of people who are I don't think right but sensible and calm and not idiotic like Olbermann that believe liberal things. And you get to that point where you actually get embarrassed now.

GLENN: I've never watched Rachel Maddow's show but I've tuned in across and seen a little bit. I don't know. She's very, very liberal, everything that I believe. But I believe that she's the kind of person that you could have dinner with and have a reasonable conversation. She's not trying to kill you and drag your body through the streets.

STU: It definitely seems. And I have not watched the show at all but I've heard from people who are conservatives who say she at least seems likeable.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Which is a huge, a massive difference than Keith Olbermann who couldn't possibly be less like.

GLENN: That's the kind of atmosphere that we need to get to, you know, to where we can sit down. I mean, I worked at CNN. I can work with uber liberals and like each other, and really like and respect each other. Just disagree on those things. But you don't have to be nasty about it. And that's where we have to get away, you know. We just had Orrin Hatch on and now we have Joe Lieberman on. Here's an example of two people who are not nasty. They know what they believe, they stand up, and if you disagree with them, that's okay but they don't have to be nasty about it. And that's the direction we need to go in.

Joe Lieberman, welcome to the program, Senator. How are you, sir?



US Senator Joe Lieberman

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Hey, Glenn, great to talk to you. I'm good and I'm honored to be on after my dear friend Orrin Hatch. We worked a lot together. We disagree but, you know, this is a friend and a most civil person. So thank you.

GLENN: I will tell you, Senator, I will tell you that I am -- you know, I just talked to Senator Hatch about this. I fear our Constitution is hanging by a thread. I fear our Constitution, we are in real, real jeopardy here because we haven't faced this perfect storm before that we have. I mean, everybody right now is just talking about the economy, but let's talk about what the heck happens with Israel and Iran and even Iraq at this point.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Yeah. No, look, there's no question that when people get up in the morning, they're worried about the economy. They are worried about their jobs, they are worried about their savings and investment, worried about whether they can pay their mortgage. That's all understandable and that's something that is on the ballot today. But let's never forget that out there is an enemy as devastating, probably more devastating than any we've ever faced. They protect us in the homeland, these are the Islamic extremists, they ab sore our values, our way of life and, you know, this is a choice for commander-in-chief between a man who's really inexperienced in foreign policy, a smart man, Barack Obama, well spoken but never really been tested in a crisis. And we're not sure what he would do. John McCain tested all of his life in crises, passed the test, knows that the world has leaders who are good and some are evil and you're not going to talk the evil ones into being good by sitting down over a cup of coffee. You know, they have got to -- I always say about John McCain that he will be a President that our allies will trust and like and our enemies will fear. And that's the kind of President we hate. So you are right, there's an awful lot on the line today in this election. And it honestly goes to the heart of our -- in a way that seems to me more intense than any election since I've been voting, goes to the heart of our future, really what we're going to be as a country and a very more personal way, whether America's going to be as strong and free and full of opportunity for my kids and grandkids as it has been, thank God, for me.

GLENN: Do you agree that with Senator Hatch -- I've only got a minute before a network break. I hope we can hold you here. But do you agree that Senator Hatch said to me that if we don't at least have the firewall of the filibuster in the Senate that in many ways America will not survive.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: Well, I hope it's not like that, but I fear. And I think for some of us there is a key. You know, it gets a bad name but it was really put there, a 60-vote requirement as somebody said to me when I first came to the Senate, stop the passions of a moment among the people of America from sweeping across the congress, the House, to the Senate and to a like minded President and having us do things that will change America for a long time. So the filibuster is one of the great protections we have. Glenn, I apologize. I'm running to go out with Senator McCain. We're going to Colorado.

GLENN: Best of luck.

SENATOR LIEBERMAN: I'm real proud of you. I remember you back when.

GLENN: Thanks a lot. Bye-bye.

Bill O'Reilly: Adam Schiff is in 'wonderland' during the Senate impeachment trial

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, Bill O'Reilly gave his latest take on the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, and explained why he thinks House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is like "Alice in Wonderland."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
