Glenn Beck is seen here eating on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

Glenn: Stu, what are those? Those are the best thing ever.

Stu: They are the best thing ever, Glenn. Exactly. They are Blue Diamond natural oven roasted almonds, vanilla flavor.

Glenn: But I would have a problem. I would eat the whole thing. I am decided I am really, really close to giving up soda.

Stu: That's silly. Soda is delicious. Enjoy it.

Glenn: I met with my doctor yesterday, two days ago, and, you know, he put my arm in a sling and he was, like, you broke your elbow sac or whatever it was. I'm like, what will hell is that?

Stu: That doesn't exist.

Glenn: That's what I said. You're making that up. You're not actually a doctor. And he's, like, no. I've got these thingies I put in my ears. And I said, I don't think you can hear my heartbeat in my elbow. He said, Shhh. I'm listening. But, anyway, but I talked to him. I said, you know, I've got to get healthy and I've got to, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, and I said, I've got a really bad fall coming up with the election and everything else that's going on and he said, Well, what's your schedule? And I told him. And he said, Hum. That sounds like suicide. And I said, No, no, no. That's why you're being involved now. How do I not die? And he said, Hum. I don't know if I can help you on that one but then he gave me a bunch of stuff to do and he said, you know, you've got to give up soda and everything else.

Stu: Oh, stop it.

Glenn: No. My wife has been trying to get me to give up soda for awhile.

Stu: It's silly.

Glenn: I hate water so much.

Stu: You drink diet soda, by the way. We should point that out. I don't know if your doctor knew that or not.

Glenn: Your body processes diet soda after awhile the same way.

Stu: Why are we it's a typical, like, thing that health magazines do and Sarah is looking at me because she always complains about this to me and I understand she's way more healthy than I am.

Glenn: Did you see how fat she's getting? She hasn't gained an ounce anywhere like except in her stomach region.

Stu: Like in the last eight, nine months.

Glenn: It's this weird I think she has a tumor, a stomach tumor or something.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's like she's got a watermelon in her stomach. I'm afraid of her.

Stu: Don't say it too loud. He's right there.

Glenn: I'll tell you something. If cantaloupes stop shooting out of her, remember, you heard it here first. Have a camera nearby because that would be cool.

Stu: I don't want to have that conversation. Nor do I want the video.

Glenn: We can sell the video.

Stu: That's possible. It would be a scientific

Glenn: Sarah with cantaloupes shooting out of her. It would be fantastic. Did you see the movie Chameleon? She could be on the phone and tell me with Sarah this could happen. She could be on the phone and all of the sudden her belly could rip open and then it comes and eats us. I saw it. They scamper through the air vents and stuff. Anyway, what were we talking about?

Stu: We were talking about soda.

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: And the fact that health magazines like to blame weight gain on soda.

Glenn: I wasn't blaming it on it.

Stu: It's 0 calories and also the fact that people that are fat and like to drink are the ones that drink the diet soda. So, of course they drink more. That's why they need diet sodas because they've been eating more all of their lives. I know. I'm one of them.

Glenn: That's true. I'll give you that. I look at it as 150 calories saved. There you go. This argument always pisses me off, the main ingredient in soda, water. It's mainly water.

Stu: I thought of you this your big point on this, there is a huge new development on this.

Glenn: Well, let me give you my viewpoint. What kind of I'm tired of seeing the PBS specials, the amazing machine, the human body, the amazing machine. It's so amazing, they keep telling me to drink more lousy water. I hate water. They're telling me to drink more water. Coke is mainly water. My body can't sort it out? What kind of filtering system is this?


I'm sorry. Go ahead, Stu.

Stu: Are you ready for it? There's two new fronts on this. First of all, there is a new study released that the water thing is bull crap, they've been telling you for years in all these magazines and there is no discernible difference between the people that drink 8 glasses of water a day and those that don't.

Glenn: Really?

Stu: That is bull crap. I will get the story for you momentarily.

Glenn: Am I the only one that hates water?

Stu: I like it after you exercise and stuff like that.

Glenn: I like it, like, in the middle of the night where when you wake up and you're, like, I've got to have water. Have you ever had that.

Stu: Yeah.

Glenn: Where I just there's a couple of times a month, I'll wake up in the middle of the night (indicating.) I don't think I have an ounce of water in me and you crawl to the kitchen to get a drink of water and you can, like, feel your eyes get bigger.

Stu: Are you keeping a canteen next to your bed?

Glenn: I do. That's the only time I like water. It's so boring. It doesn't taste like anything. I hate it. Here's the thing. If I ever become President or God, like Obama, I'm going to make water taste good. I mean, look. Toothpaste?

Stu: Uh huh.

Glenn: It's got fluoride in it. So does water. Well, how about we make water taste minty? We can do it to toothpaste. We can't make it, like, minty fresh water? It would be great.

Stu: Do you think Barack Obama could

Glenn: Chocolate chip water. Oh, yeah.

Stu: I think Barack Obama could make chocolate chip water.

Glenn: Doughnut flavored water.

Stu: They do have a lot of the flavored waters now, Glenn.

Glenn: Yeah. They suck.

Stu: Can Barack Obama part a bottle of water? He can part the sea, we know.

Glenn: Only well, first of all, he wouldn't because Fiji water is brought from an island on a giant 747 and that's not very environmentally sound, but he can do it with Perrier.

Stu: Really?

Glenn: Yeah. It's French.

Stu: It's interesting. Now, Glenn, the other development in this little turn of events

Glenn: Yes.

Stu: that's completely off topic and all we've got here is I was in a grocery store the other day and I'm going through the soda aisle, which I spend most of my time in the soda aisle, and there is a big, giant case of soda, a big display that has as one of its advertising slogans on the back Soda Hydrates, Too, and it's a big thing about how don't believe it, soda can give you just as much hydration as water.

Glenn: Well, that would be coming from a bigot like you. So

Stu: It comes from big soda.

Glenn: No. It comes from a bigot like you, somebody who is just so bigoted who thinks I can vote for Barack Obama but that means I'm not a racist.

Here is the latest, Barack Obama the campaign is already starting to come out now that if you vote for Barack Obama, it doesn't mean you're not a racist. So, you could vote for him, you could support him, he could be the most powerful man in the world, but it doesn't mean anything about you being a racist. You're still a racist, honky.

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.
