Glenn Beck: What 'doing something' looks like




Video: Katy Abram on Hardball

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. Hello and welcome to the program. Let me go to Katy in Pennsylvania who was questioned by Arlen Specter. Or you questioned Specter, right, Katy?

KATY: Yeah. Yeah, I did.

GLENN: And what happened to you now?

KATY: The meeting was on Tuesday and the past two days it's been a whirlwind

GLENN: Are you okay, Katy? Are you okay?

KATY: Yeah, I'm okay. Sorry. I just went there to ask a question and these people I'm sorry. These people are calling my cellphone, calling my dad's office, e mailing my dad's office. They are trying to set up the normal people of this country.

GLENN: Katy

KATY: That's what I see.

GLENN: Katy?

KATY: Yes.

GLENN: Do you have these e mails?

KATY: Yes.

GLENN: What are they saying in the e mails and what are they saying on your phone?

KATY: The phone call I got, the first thing on Tuesday was some coward called me. I don't know how he got my cellphone number. He said something and then he called me a racist.

GLENN: What was

KATY: The question, this is not a left or right. This is about America, and I wanted him to go back to Washington and show us that, you know, to I can't even think right now. They are dismantling our country.

GLENN: Okay, Katy, Katy.

KATY: Yeah?

GLENN: Let me tell you something. I can certainly relate to you. I have had to have police cars in my driveway. I have now security detail. If you read any of my if you read any of the blogs about me, if you read any you should read my tweets. The venom, the anger.

KATY: Yeah.

GLENN: The evil quite honestly that is being pointed at people who speak out is staggering. I have done this for over 30 years and I have never seen anything like what is coming. And just know, Katy, that you are not alone. And what you have to understand is this is a sign of their weakness. When they can't argue the truth, when they can't defend it and they need to bully and intimidate, when they need to take the, quite honestly Ahmadinejad type tactics and bully people and pillory them without talking about the facts. This is what Stalin did, this is what Ahmadinejad does. They all do it. If they can't defend it. Don't worry. There are more people like you. What I'm looking for is those Democrats that say, okay, I wanted change. I didn't want George Bush and I didn't agree with his policies, but we are not a nation of thugs. I would like to see those Democrats stand up and where are they. Call if you're one of those Democrats. But no, Katy, you are not alone. You are not alone.

KATY: I know that. I would say of all the phone calls, the e mails I've gotten on Facebook and everything, 99% of them are positive. They're telling me you know I'm a stay at home mom, too. I know what you're feeling. I thank you for standing up for me and the boys, for the people. And I'm proud to do that. It's just that, you know, everything kind of caught up with me last night. I wrote you an e mail last night well, early this morning. And I was wondering if I could read it to you.

GLENN: Yes. Go ahead.

KATY: It says, hi, Glenn. It's 4:41 a.m. I finally just got a few hours of needed sleep. And sitting here writing you maybe is a way to help myself feel a little better. I can't stop crying right now. The gravity of the past two days is finally hitting me. I am merely an American who wanted to ask her senator a question. Sorry. That's all I wanted. Last evening I went on MSNBC's Hardball with Lawrence O'Donnell. The lamb walked into the lion's den knowing she could be eaten alive. The lion pounced. The lamb is still alive. But is questioning why she would have placed herself in such danger. I new Hardball would be difficult but I want those who don't watch the channels that I watch to hear from a normal American. I'm not a plant by the GOP. I am a mom. I may not be the most articulate person. I may not be well versed, but I know what I believe. I can't quote numbers or facts well. I know my limitations. But I know who I am. I know what I believe in.

Glenn, I have received hundreds of e mails from people like me. My friends tell me they have fan pages for me on Facebook. I have bloggers tearing me apart or holding me up. I feel like I've just stepped into your world. I don't know how you do it. I have always respected you but it has grown a hundredfold in the past 48 hours. I have lost seven pounds in two days. I have barely eaten. My head hurts and I miss my kids. They come home today from my in laws. I just want to hug them. My daughter Madelyn asked me on the phone last night who the sleeping giant was. That's a great question. It's such an honest one from my 7 year old. God bless her. Who is the sleeping giant. I'll tell you who he is. The sleeping giant consists of those of us who have buried our heads in the sand for years. We know what we believe and yet it's our voice yet if we voice our opinions publicly, we are chastised and called hate mongers or racist even when those lies are unfounded. We are the people who you don't see in the news. We are the people who love this country so much but feel so powerless to do anything. We feel powerless against this huge machine of government and media. We are the people who are finally taking a stand. We no longer just yell at the politicians on TV. We now go to town hall meetings to have our questions answered, our voices heard and our faces seen. This giant is now awake. He is ready to fight for this country, his freedom and his liberty. I ask that you pray for my family. I've been praying for yours for some time now. I know I want to fight this, but I don't want this ruining our family, our business or our lives. My gut says I can do this. If I must be the waking voice for those whom I have touched, then sobeit. And that's the end.

GLENN: Katy, you are a very brave, very brave person.

KATY: Thank you.

GLENN: You are only the beginning of you are only the beginning. You have a write in your diary. Are you keeping a diary, Katy?

KATY: I haven't had time.

GLENN: Okay. Go get a Moleskin. It's a little teeny book of just blank pages. Keep it with you. Keep it in your purse. Even if it's one line. Katy, you are living in historic times and while your name or your face or my name or my face may not be ever recorded in history, you are the beginning of that giant. You are the first eyelid opening up or you are the firsthand that has moved and said, wait a minute here. Know your place in history, Katy, and you are you may feel insignificant but you're not. And speak the truth. Question with boldness and speak without fear. Thanks, Katy.

KATY: Thank you.

GLENN: We have the audio of her question and let's go see if we can get the audio and see what, what a surprise NBC did to her last night, next.

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.
