GLENN: Can I tell you something? This book is going to drive the left out of their ‑‑ it already is. Just the cover is drive them crazy. Sucks to be them. All right. Do you remember Joe the plumber? He was a guy playing catch in his front yard with his son, decided to ask the president just one question. Hey, you know, I'm working really hard; you're going to take all my money. And here's what the president said. Here's what the president said. Here's what ‑‑ how much are we paying Pat just for the audio vault thing? How much are we paying him?

STU: $13 million.

GLENN: The phone system works better than he does.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Here's what the president said.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind it, that they've got a chance of success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

GLENN: Okay. Remember, it wasn't his question that made the news. It was Obama's response: Spread the wealth around. This is way back when Obama was denying his plans were all but completely based on soaking the rich and his cabinet members weren't admitting as much on live television. But still, the term, you know, just spreading the wealth, redistribute the wealth is something that the administration would never embrace, right?

PAT: Right. Is it Peter Pan?

GLENN: The czar of the day?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: No, it's really not time to guess. I was just asking a question in there. The czar that we have a problem with now has a problem with the way the Indians in this country were treated over the years.

STU: Is it Bob Uecker as Harry Doyle?

GLENN: No, it's the ‑‑ sorry, it's not time to guess. This czar is worried about Native Americans and how to bring wealth to them.

VOICE: And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn't want, where it was all hot and windy, well, guess what. Renewable energy. Guess what, solar industry. Guess what, wind industry. They now own and control 80% of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect that they deserve. No justice on stolen land. We owe them a debt.

GLENN: Wow. No justice on stolen land. Really. Give them the wealth. Wow. Apparently the environmental movement is just a secret plot to avenge our broken treaties to Native Americans. Who knew?

PAT: Is it Warren Churchill?

GLENN: No, it wasn't ‑‑ I'm sorry, no.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Who was the czar?

STU: Is it someone hoping to build an Indian casino?

GLENN: No. The answer to everybody's favorite czar... Van Jones. Now, I know what you are probably going to say, you know, this is old audio, probably before he turned really, you know, into a crazy radical and then he changed back apparently. We can't find any evidence of that, but it had to be the youthful indiscretion, right? Well, it's true, it is old audio, from way, way back. I don't even remember this president's first term. Do you remember the first term of Barack Obama?

STU: Oh, my God, yeah.

GLENN: It was that long ago. That long ago. Way, way back, in March of 2009.

STU: Wow.

PAT: I don't even, I don't even know what grade I was in. Like 37th or something, 37th grade?

GLENN: I stopped counting at 12th grade.

PAT: I don't even ‑‑

GLENN: How old was the president back in March? Was he like 4?

PAT: Oh, he had to be, you know.

GLENN: That's incredible. And if you think this audio is good, oh, wait. Coming up at the top of the hour. Audio that should scare the living pants ‑‑ well, I guess if you were caused so much injustice by the evil Americans that you don't have pants, maybe you won't be scared out of your pants. But if anybody has pants, I've got more injustices for you because we're now going to take your pants, as we scare the pants right off of you. At the top of the hour.

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.
