Glenn Beck: John McCain's 'Musical Woes' ??



VOICE: Barack Obama, John McCain, two candidates, one winner fighting to the bitter end. The Battle of the News Headlines starts... now.

STU: Well, yesterday was a very interesting day as John McCain steamed get two mildly positive headlines but I'm sure that's going to turn around. We're looking for some very -- some attacks that have no substance for them. I think that's what I'd like for in the first half.

GLENN: All right. Let's go with John McCain, headline number one from today's paper, McCain calm over cancer scare. I don't even know what headline number two means: McCain's musical woes. Dan, you've got to look up that story. I can't even imagine. What is John -- did he go see Mamma Mia? John McCain headline number three: John McCain's negative attacks against Barack Obama hit a low mark. John McCain says media is biased towards Obama but it's McCain who's been getting a free ride. Here we are at the half, about ready to go in and see the next four headlines. These headlines will be for Barack Obama.

STU: That's basically exactly what we expected for McCain. Looking forward to Obama, we expect positive embrace from the media. That's what he gets on a daily basis.

GLENN: And here we go, headline number one for Obama: A hug for Obama, a handshake for McCain. Headline number two: Obama says he's becoming competitive in red states. Headline number three: Obama, new sheriff in town. I mean, what does that -- oh, does he think he's a cowboy? And the third. Mr. President? Not quite, but quite presidential.

VOICE: Once again Barack Obama comes out on top, glowing headline after glowing headline. Gee, what a frickin' surprise.

GLENN: Dan, what is John McCain's musical woes? What is that?

DAN: Give me one second. Hold on.

GLENN: I mean, that's just -- oh. And here's another one. I'm assuming this one, John McCain's negative attacks against Barack Obama hit a new low mark? Is that the one where he won't -- he will go to the gym but he won't go visit the soldiers in Germany?

STU: That's, I'm sure that's that, yeah. You know what, I -- look. Barack Obama's going to run 15,000 terrible ads and 527s will do it, too, but John McCain's ads stink so far. I don't understand this. Like, I -- it's not his place to be criticizing Barack Obama that he's going to the gym instead of going to visit the troops. It just seems like a silly sort of hackish attack. And then --

GLENN: Well, it's -- compared to like, for instance, he says he won't take on Jeremiah Wright.

STU: Right. That's something of substance. Like, he --

GLENN: Well, no. Because John McCain sees it the wrong way. John McCain sees the Jeremiah Wright thing: Oh, that's race and that's religion. No, it's not. His theology is political theology. It is a Marxist theology. And if somebody would stand up and say, look, I don't want to talk about anybody's religion, I don't really care about anybody's religion. But this is a Marxist theology. And look, here is this phrase from this individual called Lenin, here's this phrase from Marx, here's this phrase from Castro, here's this phrase from Jeremiah Wright. Now let me give you the phrase from Berlin that's awfully familiar. You know what I mean? If you would just take on and say, look, this has influenced the man. No matter what he says, it has influenced the man. And it's not about religion and it's not about race and it's not about loud, flashy preachers. But he won't do 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.
