GLENN: Okay. So now let's move to NBC. Last night in their continuing coverage on what's really important in America, Brian Williams was off the fluorescent light kick for just a second and moved right into Jimmy Carter's views of that all‑important issue, Joe Wilson. Is he a racist?

VOICE: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said he is ‑‑

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Hang on. Could you play that again?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: A certain number of signs. What number of signs? Were there four?

STU: Zero?

PAT: Was it a million?

GLENN: Was it a million? A certain number of signs.

PAT: I love that kind of journalism. Great.

GLENN: It's yellow journalism.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: Which, I don't know. Is that racist anymore? Am I making a comment about a race by calling it yellow journalism now? I'm not sure.

PAT: I don't know any yellow people. Do you?

President Jimmy Carter on Brian Williams

GLENN: No, I don't know. I don't know yellow people.

STU: SpongeBob.

PAT: SpongeBob? Okay, sorry. Stand corrected.

GLENN: SpongeBob? Thank you. Why do I hate SpongeBob so much? I'm clearly aware that yellow journalism has nothing to do with SpongeBob SquarePants or any other person that might be yellow but when do the facts matter anymore? So why is Brian Wilson ‑‑

PAT: You may be hearing from the association of jaundiced people later on today.

PAT: Can I tell you something? My son was born jaundiced. I hated him when he was yellow.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I hated him. All right. So Brian Williams goes on with his yellow journalism.

PAT: A certain number of times.

GLENN: Setting up people, as these tea party people as being violent haters.

REPORTER: A certain number of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Pause it. No, I just want to let you know because you can't see the video, they are not showing signs of that. By the way, do you hear people singing the Star‑Spangled Banner and patriotic songs in the background? Such hate mongers. And there's no signs that they're showing on television.

PAT: They are showing the signs. Just, none of them have anything to do with with race, hate, violence, nothing.

REPORTER: A certain numbers of signs and images at last weekend's big tea party march on Washington and at other recent events have featured racial and other violent themes, and President Carter today said ‑‑

GLENN: What were the violent themes? I'm trying to think of one violent theme.

PAT: What was the racial theme? What was the violent theme?

GLENN: Oh, I remember. The NBC story that they did with the white guy carrying the gun that turns out to be a black guy because they just didn't, they just cut off his head and his arm in the shot.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Luckily our cameras were there and we had the same guy and the same shot and we showed that it was an African‑American.

STU: That is the point here, though, is that's why the wording is so careful of "Some." I mean, there are some.

GLENN: Of course there are.

STU: Of course there are. In every group there are idiots, always.

GLENN: I'm tired of the counting thing. University of Indiana did, you know, the computer thing where, you know, they measure the space and the ‑‑

STU: Oh, yeah?

GLENN: The number of people. You didn't know this?

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7 million people.

STU: No.

GLENN: 1.7.

PAT: I didn't see any of that because I was... sailing.

GLENN: Computers? Why not just listen to the politicians count. Would you like some Grey Poupon?

PAT: Surely, on my yacht.

GLENN: So anyway, he's making this great case so far. And then he gets right to the expert of all race issues: Jimmy Carter.

CARTER: An overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward ‑‑

PAT: That's line a certain amount of signs, isn't it? An overwhelming portion.

CARTER: Of President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man.

GLENN: I didn't know that.

CARTER: African‑American.

GLENN: I wasn't aware of that. Did you know that?

PAT: That when you say "You lie," that just means ‑‑

GLENN: That means I hate black people.

PAT: ‑‑ you hate black people. I didn't know that.

GLENN: You know who I feel like? Haley Joel Osment: I hate black people. Anybody else was like, "You lied." I can just stand there and go, "He hates black people." That's what we should have. We should have just little Haley Joel Osment on the set everywhere just to watch the news: "He hates black people." That guy hates black people, too. I'm pretty sure he hates black people."

PAT: I didn't like what Barack Obama was wearing today.

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm opposed to the healthcare reform...

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm really ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm against ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I didn't say anything yet.

GLENN: I don't ‑‑ It's Pat talking. He hates black people.

PAT: I don't ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people.

PAT: I'm not sure ‑‑

GLENN: He hates black people. Look at the hate.

PAT: I'm just curious ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, he's got a gun.

PAT: If only we could‑‑

GLENN: He's got a gun.

PAT: Unity is ‑‑

GLENN: He's got a bomb.

PAT: Diverse ‑‑

GLENN: Run, run.

PAT: More diversity.

GLENN: Help me. We're all in danger.

PAT: We need to be more tolerant.

GLENN: Help, help, help, help, help. Killer on the loose.

PAT: I'm out of here.

GLENN: Son of Sam.

GLENN: I don't think so.

GLENN: Son of Sam. He's the devil.

PAT: I'm not even speaking.

GLENN: My gosh. Jesus, is that you? Help me, please, please, please. The devil is right here. He's hating so many people. He's just killed the entire planet, for CO2.

STU: I don't know why Pat is lighting his bombs instead of setting them on timers or something.

GLENN: He hates black people. Stu ‑‑

PAT: That was clearly racist in nature, clearly, clearly racist.

GLENN: It's like a Klan meeting between these two.

PAT: It's time to put on those pointy hats. Who was the Georgia Republican, or Democrat? Hank Johnson.

GLENN: Yeah. Do we have Hank Johnson?

PAT: Another guy, yeah.

GLENN: Listen to Hank Johnson. This is great.

PAT: If we didn't censure Joe Wilson, here's what he thought.

JOHNSON: It does not help the cause of diversity and tolerance with his remarks.

GLENN: It doesn't help.

JOHNSON: If I were a betting man, I would say that it instigated more racist sentiment feeling that it's okay. You don't have to, you don't have to bury it now. You can bring it out, talk about it.

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. If he's a betting man, he's just lost. If I was a betting man, I would say that the false cries of racism on Joe Wilson, when there's absolutely nothing to back ‑‑ just back it up. Just back it up. You want to say, "Hey, I think this guy is a racist," well, then let's listen to the explanation. Let's ask: What is your evidence that he's a racist? What is your evidence? And let's do it with peace and love in our hearts. What is your evidence? I haven't heard their evidence. Has anybody even asked their evidence? I'd like to ask for the evidence. What evidence do you have that ‑‑ because maybe he is. I don't know. I've looked. We've had our researchers look. I haven't found any evidence. So let's hear it. Maybe he is. But that should be asked. Why would you say that? Because racism is real. And if you have evidence, well, then we should listen to it. And maybe we can convince them that they're either right or they're wrong. Maybe we can say, oh, my gosh! Oh, I hear your evidence now! Oh, I see, okay. You're right. Or... no, you're wrong and here's why. You see? That's maybe what we should do. It's kind of like, it's really interesting to me. When somebody cries fire, why do they cry fire? Because it's dangerous. Kind of like racism. It's dangerous, okay? So if somebody cries fire, how come we've just now entered a world where if somebody cries fire, nobody says, wait, wait, where? Where? You see smoke? Help me out. Where's the fire? How come we either just say, you liar! There is no fire! You should be thrown out of a window! Or... yeah! There's a fire in here and you started it! Why do we do that? Why do we do that? Why don't we reasonably and rationally say, hang on just a second, where's the fire? I don't any evidence of fire; where's the fire? No, don't you smell that? You smell the smoke? No, I don't ‑‑ oh, hang on just a sec. Yes, I do. Let's call the fire department and look and find out where this smoke is coming from. Why don't we do that anymore? Because it's really not about fire. It's really now, the cries of racism most times, not all times, some people have evidence and would like to have that conversation. When there are cries of racism, sometimes it's not because there's real racism. Sometimes it's because there's somebody milling around in the office, you know, that might figure out what's going on in the office and then might report it. And so what do they do? Fire! Fire! To get everybody out of the office. So they can continue to cover up what they need covered. And so you're all standing out in the sidewalk going, "Gee, fire." But you know what? After that person cries fire over and over and over again and there is no fire, maybe we should look at that and say, why do they keep crying fire? I'm just sayin'. If we really felt racism, which I do, if we really felt racism was bad and harmful, we would ask more questions about it when we heard those cries. And we decide which was the truth and then we do something about that truth.

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.
