Glenn Beck: Obama and Iranian Caviar

GLENN: Meanwhile Joe the plumber, speaking of Barack Obama, who's just like you, you know, because he -- I mean, he hangs out with people like Joe the plumber and Joe the Senator, you know, Joe Biden. He's -- may I say something to you? He's -- Joe Biden is Joe Six-Pack -- well, not six-pack as much as, you know, Joe, a bottle of fine Chardonnay. But yesterday Barack Obama who's just like you, is taking at the Waldorf Astoria. "I've got to get to the Waldorf." So he's staying at the Waldorf Astoria and he and his wife just want to order a little something in their room. "What do we have? Honey, what do you say, let's just call for something up in room service. I don't know. Just something to pick at a little bit, maybe, I don't know, some peasant food of some sort. What do they have here at the Waldorf Astoria?" Well, apparently at 4:00 in the afternoon yesterday (phone ringing)... "Room service. Yes?" "Yes, this is the Obama room and we would like just to have something to pick at, just something simple. What do you have?" "Well, we have some quesadillas." "No, no, I was thinking something a little more like maybe some lobster hors d'oeuvres." "Oh, those hors d'oeuvres things?" "Yes, what you said. I'd like some lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, a little Iranian caviar. Do you have Iranian caviar?" "Ooh, I don't know, hang on just a second. Are we still only serving the Syrian caviar or -- yes, we have the Iranian." "Oh, that's lovely. I love, love -- the only conditions that I will set is that my meal must include Iranian caviar. Anyway, we'd like a little Iranian caviar, the two whole steamed lobsters, a little lobster hors d'oeuvres and a little champagne. After all, you can't have the 4:00 hour go by without a little bubbly." You've got to be kidding me! When I read this story just a minute ago, I asked Stu. And Stu, have you done any checking? Was it their anniversary yesterday?

STU: I don't know yet, no.

GLENN: My gosh, I just for -- I am so sorry. I forgot. It is an essential occasion. It's just a Thursday, "A little caviar on Thursday." Who is this guy!

STU: Their anniversary is October 3rd.

GLENN: Their anniversary is October 3rd? Maybe, maybe they were having their anniversary dinner at 4:00 in the afternoon. That's a possibility. Can somebody check and see if they had time together for their anniversary. I've never even had caviar. I might have had it by mistake one time. You know, it's one of those things that you're like, "What's that?" I mean, you know, not like -- you know, I never ordered it. It's like one of those -- you know, you go to -- have you ever been to one of those buffets, you go to those buffets and they got crap that you've never seen before and you're like, "I don't know." And you just start loading stuff up on your plate? You know, come on. You've never been to Shoney's? You've never had the caviar at Shoney's? It's Tennessee caviar, but it's really, really good. I've never had caviar. Have you ever had caviar, Stu?

STU: No, and I have no possible desire to eat it.

GLENN: I think we should -- I'm in Detroit. There's got to be lots of caviar here.

STU: Oh, yes, the caviar capital of the world, Detroit is.

GLENN: Adam, go outside, go outside downtown Detroit, see if you can find some caviar, will you? "We must have some caviar, it's lovely this time of year. Excuse me. Excuse me, sir. Where might I find some caviar and toast points?"

I don't even order this stuff. I mean, honestly. You go to -- my eyes shooting blood out of the -- my wife would choke the bat crap out of me if I ever went to a hotel -- I get yelled at if I order orange juice at a hotel. I mean, you order at a hotel, I'm not kidding you. We were at a hotel in New York and this is before we started the television, and we went up to New York and we were doing the pilot for the television show and so we had to stay in this hotel for, like, three, four days. So we're up in this hotel and I get to the hotel and my wife was making peanut butter sandwiches on the bed and I said, you know, they do have room service. She said, do you know how much hot chocolate is? Do you know how much a peanut butter sandwich is? I went out -- I'm not paying that. I went out and I got bread and peanut butter and jelly. I mean, that's the way real people are, for the love of Pete. Can you even imagine? What does love -- we have to call the Waldorf Astoria. What does lobster hors d'oeuvres, two steamed lobsters and Iranian cav -- side point, your Honor. May I have an ADD moment? Iranian caviar? Iranian caviar? If you're Barack Obama or John McCain, do you have anything Iranian right now! "I don't know. Do you have anything imported from Iran?" "Hang on just a second. Do we have anything from Iran?" "Look like we have a little anthrax right now. Would you like a little anthrax?" "No, no, no. Just the caviar. Send in the caviar. Thank you very much." My gosh. But remember, he's just like you. He Joe Six-Pack. He's Joe Six-Pack. "As long as Ch

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.
