GLENN: How do we get more?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Mark Lloyd, our new FCC czar will

(Audio playing)

GLENN: By the way, I'm not kidding you. This is what Mark Lloyd wants. Mark Lloyd is our new diversity czar. I pointed him out on Wednesday. He was the guy that we have on tape, on videotape again. No one responding to it. Extolling the important revolution that happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez. And if it wasn't for the United States and these big businesses and nonstate run radio, that revolution could have happened a lot easier. And that's that was his he's trying to make a case that we shouldn't, we shouldn't have free radio and television. It should all be run by the state. And he's using Hugo Chavez's first failure as a reason why because he hadn't controlled the radios yet. I mean, what?

STU: Well, did he say it over that music? Because I think it would be more credible.

GLENN: Do it again.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: You know that very start again, start again. You know that very important revolution in no, no, you know what, I can't do it. Do we have the Toll McClellan? Go ahead. Because I think we can we have our own.

STU: Here's the beginning.

GLENN: Here's the beginning.

(Audio playing)

VOICE: Welcome back to National Public Radio.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: And now Almost All Things Considered with your host, Toll McClellan.

GLENN: Hello, I'm Toll McClellan with guests Biff Biffeson and, hello, Biff. Biff

PAT: Good to be here, George, good to be here.

GLENN: Biff, we are talking about this crazy thing called freedom of speech. And Mark Lloyd, the new FCC diversity czar that quite correctly pointed out that Hugo Chavez and his first attempt at revolution failed because of freedom of speech.

PAT: Bloody awful, Beck, bloody awful.

GLENN: See, we can do this. We've got jobs no matter what happens. We've got jobs.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: So anyway, let's go hang on. Hold on just a second. I believe, Biff, we have a phone call.

PAT: Do we have? How marvelous.

GLENN: We have a phone caller coming through. Unfortunately our phone system here at NPR works as well as the private radio stations did. Yes, hello?

CALLER: Hello.

GLENN: Yes.

CALLER: I'm very interested in your program. Thank you now

GLENN: Please hold down some of the passion.

PAT: Your inside voice, if you will. If you wouldn't mind.

CALLER: I apologize. I'm very excited as you can tell from being on the program.

GLENN: Indoor voice, thank you.

PAT: Indoor voice.

CALLER: I just am invigorated by your commentary today.

GLENN: Slow down just a bit, please.

PAT: No reason to get excited, good fellow.

CALLER: Well, I'm very invigorated by your commentary. I just can't believe what you're talking about today because this is what I've been thinking for years and years, which is why do I have all these choices? When I turn on the radio

GLENN: Biff, very good point made here by the

PAT: Excellent, excellent point.

GLENN: Who usually we just look down our nose at and wonder why these people even are allowed to have phones.

PAT: Even exist, even exist on the planet.

GLENN: Even exist, yes, thank you.

PAT: Is there no population control anymore? What happened to the 1970s?

GLENN: There are no white houses, are there no prisons?

PAT: There are no prisons. It's bloody awful.

GLENN: All right, all right, stop, okay. So here is what NPR said. This is a conversation on NPR about Ted Kennedy.

VOICE: Sad at his passing and yet celebrating this huge life and his huge long list of accomplishments.

VOICE: I think he would be the last person who would want us, those he's left behind, to be morose and full of bathos.

GLENN: Oh, hang on. Morose and full of bathos.

PAT: Or partos or Arcadian for that matter.

GLENN: I am so full of bathos until I squeezed it out of me.

PAT: When you use the term bathos four times in a day, it belongs to you. It's your own word and you get royalties from it from then on. Bathos.

GLENN: You now own it! You've said it four times.

PAT: Oh, how marvelous!

GLENN: I may have to say it; I don't have enough money in my wallet. (Laughing). Okay, so anyway, he wouldn't want us to be full of bathos.

VOICE: He would come in with a big guffawing laugh and make us laugh, too.

VOICE: He would, yes.

STU: Are we going to ignore guffawing?

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. I mean, it's a normal word.

PAT: A big guffawing laugh. (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, and we all would have, we all would have chortled over that for hours.

VOICE: At his own expense.

VOICE: Well, you know, he I don't know if you know this or not, but one of his favorite topics

GLENN: Ready?

VOICE: of humor was indeed Chappaquiddick itself and he would ask people, have you heard any new jokes about Chappaquiddick.

PAT: That's such a scream!

GLENN: It is.

PAT: Remember that chick I drove into the creek? She was like 19, 20 years old, wasn't my wife! (Laughing). I went home, I'm out, you know, I'm a little wet, but I'm home relaxing with a beer; she's expecting me to come back! (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man. You're killing me! (Laughing). Just like her!

PAT: It was killing her! (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man!

PAT: That's rich, like me!

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.
