Glenn Beck: Olbermann endorses 9/12 project


MSNBC's Keith Olbermannn

GLENN: 888 727 BECK. I am waiting for a decision to be made on where I am going to be on 9/12. I got it down to two things and the idea is what is going to be the you know, we all play a role. So what is the best thing that I can do on 9/12. If you haven't made your plans yet, please make your plans. I'll tell you hopefully maybe by the end of the show today. Otherwise tomorrow. I'm just waiting for some logistics to come through on something and then I'll tell you what I'm doing on 9/12 and I hope that you will join me or other 9/12ers or tea partygoers or where there are a lot of things going on and we'll tell you about them coming up in the next few days as we get closer to 9/12. But I will tell you that again I didn't expect it from Keith Olbermann but if we have can we just play just a little bit of what he said about the 9/12 group?

OLBERMANN: At its core beneficial, calling, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12th, 2001? Not the dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Wow. I mean, he does get it.

GRAY: He gets it. I didn't think he would, but he does.

GLENN: He does.

PAT: Seems to.

GLENN: I didn't

PAT: That sounded pretty sincere.

Learn More about the 9/12 Project

GLENN: And I don't think he said that before when we started it. Remember everybody was trying to make me into a fear monger, that we wanted the fear of, you know, 9/11.

STU: It's so often that we see things in political terms. And when something like that happens, it's very possible that he may have had an initial reaction to it which was negative. But when he actually has seen it in progress and seen it going on.

GLENN: Shows the idea behind it.

STU: Turned around. I think that's cool, though. You've got to

GLENN: It shows that he was thinking and it shows that he was he's open to new ideas and to new, you know, different because he doesn't obviously agree with me on anything but, well, except for the 9/12 project.

PAT: But he's had a chance to watch your show and realize how sincere you are about things and maybe he gets into the spirit a little bit more.

OLBERMANN: But at its core, beneficial, calming, unifying, thoughtful, restore the sense of September 12, 2001. Not of dread or threat but of collaboration, meeting in the middle somewhere, standing together under one flag and trying to improve the conditions of all Americans.

GLENN: Isn't that I mean, he should have delivered the monologue when I introduced it.

STU: Is it possible that maybe he would come to the event and maybe co host it with you? It would show sort of a

GLENN: You know what? Maybe we should invite him to co host, you know, any event that we might be doing because that would be that would be quite amazing because he can, obviously he can put his, you know, petty partisan "I work for GE who has practically set up a desk next to Barack Obama's desk in the Oval Office."

STU: Well, it's not really practical. Practically the head of the company's in, you know, he's one of the advisors to the president. So I mean, you are right. I guess not practically. The desk location might be different, you are right.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. I mean, he is you know, and he's working for GE which is just such a great, great...

VOICE: GE, we bring evil to life.

GLENN: And for him to be able to detach from the evil of his gigantic global corporation that is currently being called Enron for its accounting scandal that, you know, come right out of your taxpayer dollars. But it was only $50 billion, you know, and then also spending all of that money on anti mob things because they have billions of dollars to gain in GE healthcare, you know, so they can say, you know, things like, hey, don't worry. At GE we're building a better tomorrow. And for him to be able to detach from that constant pounding of what that giant corporation wants him to say and do to help the president of the United States.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Is

PAT: It's moving really. Again it's moving.

GLENN: It is moving.

PAT: I've been moved. And for because as a rule I think that sheer evil sheerly corrupts those who are around and within it.

GLENN: But here's a sign that, here's a sign that I mean, he's been moved deeply.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: He's deeply been touched.

STU: Personally I think.

GLENN: Anyway.

STU: You could just tell by because I saw the video of this statement.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: And you could tell by the way he stops, pauses and turns to the camera that he

PAT: When he does that, you know he's being real.

STU: Yeah, that's just natural. That's what people do. That's how they speak. They just suddenly pause and at the exact time it switches and he knows exactly which that's how you do that. Like when I proposed to my wife, I got down on one knee and then I stopped and I looked down and then I turned to the right and I looked right up at her just like that because when you do that, you're giving a sense of sincerity.

GLENN: Well, it's almost Shakespearian the way he

STU: Yeah, I think that is a good reference, Shakespearian.

GLENN: Well, for that relief, much thanks.

STU: Right, yeah. Like that's a you know, can you imagine how great it would be to be able to actually just take a woman that has been writing in as a fan of the show and then go to some hotel and have sex with her and then say for this relief, much thanks, and then have an assistant write and say, I don't ever want to talk to you again; don't ever call or write?

STU: Yeah, I'm not getting the reference here but you are right about people crossing political divides.

GLENN: It's right out of the top of my head but thank you, Keith Olbermann, for the endorsement of the 9/12 project. It was big of you, and much thanks.

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.
