Glenn's Cabinet


Glenn Beck live in HD - July 17th at a movie theater near you

GLENN: And these movie theatres in several states are now sold out. And I just, last night I just heard, I don't remember which movie chain tried to get permission and, fine with me but I don't know how Fathom Events does this because it always has to be live, they said can we do other show times. And I said, there's not enough water to replenish my body in time to do it. I mean, I'll sweat like 40 gallons.

STU: I know that, like, a lot of these theatres only use this technology in one, if I'm understanding this right, one screen.

GLENN: There are some theatres that have multiple screens and they have already opened them up to multiple screens and they're sold out and now they want to go to multiple showings. So -- but we will try. It is only one performance and this is Thursday night. Go to GlennBeck.com to fine out all of the information. And then we're in Dallas and there's a couple of things going on. I just found out somebody else is coming to the performance on Thursday. On Friday we're going to be in Houston. There is somebody in Houston that is going to arrive that I can guarantee you will be nonstop standing ovations as they are sitting in the crowd in Houston, Texas. Guarantee you. And it might be somebody that I'm considering putting on my cabinet because if I were running, I'm giving the ultimate politically incorrect speech this week because we wrap up Beck '08 Unelectable, our comedy tour, I'm giving the complete -- I'm giving the speech really honestly that I think the President should give. He would be completely unelectable, but it's the truth. It's what every American wants to hear. So I'm giving that on Thursday. I think I need a cabinet. So you're looking at, like, the secretary of energy. I mean, who are you going to do? The only one that really comes to mind, she's not strong enough, the governor from Alaska. I'm digging her.

STU: She would be fantastic secretary of energy.

GLENN: Oh, I'm digging her. If she weren't married and I'm not married, oh, yeah, come on, bring it on. I don't even remember what she looks like. I just find her energy talk so erotic. You know what I mean? She's just like, oh, we could drill here all day long, and I just, I don't know. There's something about her that I just love.

STU: She's fantastic. She would be a great choice for that. I mean, that's a serious -- you don't have that sort of pull. You're not going to get a good candidate like that.

GLENN: No, I'm saying if I'm President. If I'm President, a lot of things change. I don't give you the option not to serve. You're serving. "Hey, governor, what's your face, come to Washington. You're serving."

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, I would do a draft. I do a draft, yeah.

STU: See, I don't think that that would work out.

GLENN: No, I think it would. I think there's enough people out there -- because you know what? I may not even need that because in my administration there wouldn't be any bullcrap. You know what I mean? We would sit in the cabinet room and you could televise it or whatever you want and people could say something and I'd say, that's genius. Well, Glenn, that will kill all of the one-eared bunnies in all of Wisconsin. I would say, sucks to be a one-eared bunny, doesn't it?

STU: You know, it does suck to be a one-eared bunny.

GLENN: It does. It really does. Hang on, let me weep for the bunnies. Okay, I'm over it. Let's drill through their heads for more energy. Department of Homeland Security, you know who I want as Department of Homeland Security, I not only pardon Compean and Ramos, I appoint them as the head of Homeland Security. How's that? Hey, I know you guys spent some time in jail. I'm erasing that and... I'm giving you a raise. You know those guys that set you up? You know those guys who wouldn't do what we were supposed to do on the border and you spent time in jail? Yeah, you get to fire them. We can do it on TV if you want. Go ahead.

STU: See, I don't know if there's, like, partners in these jobs. I think it's typically one person --

GLENN: It's my administration. Homeland Security is a big job. There's two borders. One could be Department of Homeland Security north and the other one for south.

STU: How hard do you push for the northern job. That's a much easier job.

GLENN: Actually, you know what, I think the -- I mean, not right now because the drug cartels, but I think on terrorism, I think the northern border is more dangerous than the southern border. I'm just saying. Or we could go with Sheryl Crow. She could get things done, you know? She could just, we could sit down and talk to everybody.

STU: She could sing a very nice song about sun or all she wants to do.

GLENN: Something like that.

STU: Las Vegas or something.

GLENN: Secretary of defense, I would like to nominate Ted Nugent.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: I just think secretary -- wouldn't that be great? Nobody would screw with us. Nobody -- we would just say -- as the President I would say, you know what, Iran, I told him I was going to sleep on it but Ted Nugent, our secretary of defense, he said he wants to come over and kick your ass. I'm going to sleep on it. You know what? If you have a change of heart, call me before tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m. that damn phone will ring!

STU: Yeah. That will be the 3:00 a.m. call everyone's always talking about. In all the political commercials the phones always ring at 3:00 a.m. it's to avoid getting your ass kicked by Ted Nugent.

GLENN: Ted Nugent. We could reduce the size of the military like crazy because the guy we would have as secretary of defense is this close from being crazy. It would be great. I'm just saying.

STU: I love the pick. I mean, don't you -- should you consider, you know, maybe someone who has experience in, you know, some sort of qualifying position?

GLENN: Secretary of defense? Do you know what an experienced hunter Ted Nugent is?

STU: That's very true. I'm just saying that maybe in a, more of a --

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: War planning --

GLENN: Do you know Ted Nugent wants to go hunting with me? I said, Ted, are you out of your mind? He said, no, I want to take you hunting, brother. But Ted, you're crazy.

STU: That's the one person I would trust hunting with you. A, he's very safe with -- very responsible with firearms. B, he's one of the few people in America that don't want to kill you. I mean, this is a --

GLENN: He may have to. I'll be whining the whole time. Oh, can you imagine? Adam, Adam wants to go hunting with me, Greg Stube, war hero, Marcus Luttrell, war hero, and -- oh, and my nephew before he goes back to Iraq.

STU: Well, I mean --

GLENN: I said, are we -- Greg is a medic, right? I mean, we're going to need a doctor on site for me.

STU: Just walking up hills, let alone.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. It will be like, just let's go to the store and get some meat. What are we hunting -- we can go to the store. It's all wrapped up in a styrofoam tray. Made, by the way, from petroleum! See, that's how the mind works. I will won't be able to get meat in the lies convenient little styrofoam tray because congress won't drill!

STU: But you have to consider that whenever you're going on a trip into the wilderness, you don't have television, you don't have movies. You need comic relief. And watching you walk up hills is --

GLENN: Oh, you know what, I'm going to be the guy that about halfway through the afternoon I'm going to find myself and one of them's going to say, you know, you've got a mighty pretty mouth, and I'll just start crying. That's --

STU: I mean, it's probable.

GLENN: I don't like nature.

STU: You really don't get along with it.

GLENN: I don't, I don't like nature. I'm the only guy who would be very, very happy with my head in a jar. Somebody would have to carry me around. I could just talk and think and, you know, wouldn't have to answer -- nobody would ever have to say, "Hey, can you get that?" Nope, can't, just a head in a jar.

STU: I mean, they could easily roll you down hills with the head in the jar. Maybe put the jar into like a plastic bubble and then they can roll you down the hills and that's an easy --

GLENN: Why would they need to roll me down a hill? Just leave me like on a windowsill.

STU: No, if you want to go on a camping trip --

GLENN: I live in San Diego. You put me on a windowsill, I'm looking at the ocean the whole time. I'm a head in a jar. I can do that anywhere. I can telecommute. I don't actually have to have a desk. I don't need a computer. I don't have hands. I'm only a head. It's fantastic.

STU: Are you trying to tell me you're so lazy that even if you had no torso, you still wouldn't go into nature and walk?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Even if someone was carrying your head, you wouldn't go up a trill with trees?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: God.

GLENN: What's the point? I'll just look at it. Look at it. Look, it's a nice day outside. It's nice. I don't want to go out in it. It's hot. It's not a constant temperature.

STU: You are the only person in America with negative muscle tone. Like, that's how unathletic you are.

GLENN: Well, I've told you the story of when the doctor actually, you never want to hear a doctor stand behind you, back surgeon stand behind you and touch your body and then laugh. And I had one of the best surgeons in the country did that. He laughed. And I said, that's not really comforting. He said, no, I just, I've never, I've never felt anyone with less muscle tone than you. I said, hey, do I get an award for that? Do I get a special discount or anything?

STU: Look what we've done. This is what government does. We were trying to get your cabinet picked and then we talk about your head in a jar rolling down a hill for 20 minutes.

GLENN: Let me go to Matt.

No, wouldn't you rather have the President of the United States spend time on stuff like that, though? Really?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

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.
