GLENN: From high above Times Square, Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick freak. My name is Glenn Beck. I'm very glad you're here. There's a lot to cover today, indoctrination, the latest on ACORN. Let me start there. ACORN is extraordinarily powerful. I laid this out last night on television. The advisory council for ACORN. You have John Conyers now coming out. Remember he was the one that said the powers that be don't want me to investigate ACORN. You have John Conyers now, the powers that be apparently have talked to him again, rescinding his vote to stop all funds from ACORN. Barney Frank and John Conyers have sent a letter. They want an investigation into the two kids that made the videotape to see if they broke any laws, and they want an investigation in to see if the Constitution was violated when congress voted last week to cut off the funds to ACORN. This is when they're worried about the Constitution. They are no longer afraid of you. This week they're not afraid of you. This week they're afraid of ACORN and SEIU and the president of the United States, and the Coalition of Power do you have the statement of the coalition, the Coalition of Power that these community organizations... this is the most important clip that I think we have from the words and the mouth of Barack Obama. If you hear this clip and you understand what he's saying, you will understand where we are headed. Here it is.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. The Supreme Court, he's talking about how the founding fathers, the Constitution was flawed because we never got into the redistribution of wealth. And then the Supreme Court never got into redistribution of wealth. How can anyone claim they're not a Marxist when you want redistribution of wealth? That is Stu, Pat, is there anything more fundamental than the redistribution of wealth when it comes to Marxism?

STU: It's Marxism 101 right there.

GLENN: I mean, that's it. So he's not a Marxist, but the Supreme Court never looked into that to see if it was able to happen constitutionally. But then he goes on to say this, the fundamental flaw in the civil rights movement in the 1960s. Listen.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers and the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted, and Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

GLENN: Stop. This is Cass Sunstein. Cass Sunstein and I believe John Holdren have come out recently and said we need a new Bill of Rights. We need a positive Bill of Rights, the things right now the Bill of Rights says we'll never as a federal government, we'll never take away your right to own a handgun, we'll never take away your right to stop search and seizure, we'll never take away your right to be able to not have to incriminate yourself or your et cetera, et cetera. But what they want is a new Bill of Rights that says does what the president is saying here, that is positive: You have a right to a job, you have a right to a house, you have a right all of these things. It's what the progressives tried under FDR. And make no mistake. This is what this president wants. Cass Sunstein, who is the regulatory czar, has spoken about this recently. It is what he wants as well. It is what the radicals want because once you change the Bill of Rights, once you and they've done it slowly but surely. With our grandparents they could not convince the American people that that should be done. So the progressives, step by step, let you believe that you have a right to healthcare. It's a right to healthcare. It's a right to have a job. It's a right to have Social Security so you can retire. It's a right to have a house.

How many times have you heard this now from ACORN: The American dream is the right to own a home. They're just making that right so you can have that right to own a home. That's not a right. It is to these people.

STU: You know, there are flashier quotes from Barack Obama that are news making, but that is you are right, that clearly defines his philosophy and what he wants to do, which is essentially to get over those initial constraints placed on us by the Constitution.

GLENN: He didn't say initial. He said essential. And essential restraints, he's right. Those are essential restraints... unless you want to destroy the Constitution and the republic and start, and fundamental transform America.

Now, this is the most important part because this is showing us how exactly he plans on doing it. Go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And that hasn't shifted, and one of the, I think the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change.

GLENN: Got it? Got it? The fundamental problem with the civil rights movement is it dismissed the community organizing groups that could bring the coalitions of power, political and community organizing groups that could bring together the Coalition of Power that will bring about redistributive change. How does anyone else explain this? Help me out. How is this not a front page story? These are the president's own words. He is bringing together the Coalition of Power through these community organizing groups, organizing for America! And he has brought together this Coalition of Power, ACORN, SEIU, Tides Foundation. Give me some of the other ones that are out there. Basically all of the unions. The Coalition of Power, business through the Tides Foundation. They brought all of these businesses together. This is what's happening. And if you think that you're going to buy into this bull, that you're not going to get a tax increase, you're not going to get a tax increase. Please! You're going to have a set wage. This country

WILSON: Have a maximum wage. This country will go into redistributing of wealth. The redistribution of wealth, it's happening. It's coming.

PAT: If they are going to bring about a second Bill of Rights and, you know, I have the second Bill of Rights that FDR outlined. You have to. You have to have a maximum wage because you've got to take all the rest and give it to others.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: To provide them a free home and a job and all of those things that they have a right to.

GLENN: Why did I say about six months ago that it was important to understand what happened under Woodrow Wilson? And I said at the time, it's important to understand this because we this time are England. Do you remember me saying this? That we are England, and China is the United States. It may not even be China. I'm not sure who the other side is. It may try to be a global power but I'm guessing that it's China. But we're England this time. It is important that you understand the progressive movement under Woodrow Wilson, and it is also important that you understand what happened beginning in World War I. I said at the time, World War I set the stage. America became the dominant force in the world during World War I but we just didn't know it. The world didn't know it until 1945. But in World War I when Woodrow Wilson was setting the stage, he dismantled the world's strongest Navy, England. He dismantled every single other country, every other force in World War I, and he did it through his financial policies. England and Europe was in trouble. They couldn't afford the war and so they were selling and we were buying. We were England. Headline: HSBC bids farewell to dollar's supremacy. The sun is setting on the U.S. dollar as the ultra loose monetary policy of the U.S. Federal Reserve forces China and other vibrant economies of the emerging world to forge a new global currency order. This according to a new report by HSBC. That's the headline.

Listen to this. Quote: The dollar looks awfully like the sterling after the first world war. Read history. We are repeating it. This doesn't end well if we don't stop it. The dollar is going to be destroyed. Once the dollar is destroyed, Stu, what did I say before the World Trade Center was attacked and we were talking about Digital Angel? By the way, have you heard the latest from the makers of Digital Angel, VeriChip?

STU: I have not.

GLENN: VeriChip is working with the United States government. They just did a new deal to track the swine flu digitally with new chips. We have called. We have I have called several different business people to verify that these things are happening and we're going to release this report next week. Several different places to verify that the business deals with the government and VeriChip are happening. They are happening. We have called five times to get a response from VeriChip. No response. They want absolutely no publicity on this. I don't know what's going on, but I know that VeriChip has just entered a deal with the United States government to be able to track the swine flu. VeriChip is the company that made Digital Angel. In the year 2000 I said you don't want the government in bed with this kind of technology. Not because I was worried about something in 2000 but I said do you remember the phrase? The phrase was if you introduce fear and hunger into this society, this society will accept any dictator. They will follow anyone, if you introduce fear and hunger. And you do not want this digital satellite tracking chip technology in the hands of our government. That was in 2000.

STU: Yeah, and that's a formula that's repeated itself throughout the world over and over and over again.

GLENN: Over and over and over.

STU: When fear and hunger are introduced, people will leave everything that they thought they had behind.

GLENN: It is why I have been saying you must know what you believe. You must know what you believe because, quite honestly, I will starve to death. Quite honestly I will fight to my last breath. I know what I believe. I didn't for a very long time. I still am a work in progress. I stim am learning every day.

I was reading Thomas Jefferson last night again. There is so much yet to learn, but I know what the basic truths are. You must find those truths. You must find them. You must make them the cornerstone of your life. Fear and hunger is coming. What we're doing with the Fed is intentionally destroying our dollar. It is going to be I don't know how long it will take. It may take two weeks, it may take two years, it may take outside you talked to deep throat with me, Pat. Do you remember what was his outside estimate?

PAT: Three, I think. Two to three.

GLENN: It's coming. It's coming. And you're seeing it now. It is the front page of the Drudge Report: New global currency. So what do you do? You unite. The thing that saves us every time, there is nothing I go back to what I said on September 11th. No force from the outside will ever destroy us. It will only be a force from the inside that rips us apart. We must unite. We must unite on the principles and the values that we know to be true. We must not sell our soul to the highest bidder. We must not sell our soul for a loaf of bread. We must not sell our soul because, well, I'll be able to keep my house. Lose your house. Save yourself. I know that we're not that different. You may not agree by say things, you may not agree with all of my philosophies, but we're not that different. If you have children, you don't care about you. You care about your children. And if you don't, well, then remember the day your child was born, how your life changed. It no longer was about you. It was about them. We must preserve the way of life for our children. They must they don't have to have money. They don't have to have stuff. They don't have to have iPods. They don't have to have anything. They have to have freedom and liberty.

Look, our founders crossed the mountains in wagons. Our founders created something unbelievable with candlelight. We could lose everything. It doesn't matter. As long as we have each other. Americans will always survive. Beyond that we will always thrive. We are the people that changed the world. We still are those people. It's a scary time. It's a scary time. But I believe we were all born at this time for a reason. We're the ones to bring us through it. We're the ones to set the table for the next generation. We're the ones to sweep up the mess. Many of us, including me, we made the mess. Clean up after ourself. Set things right. We can do it. But only if we have fierce determination. Only if he we don't concentrate on the things that divide us. When it comes down, we must speak the truth. And that may seem divisive to some people, it may seem like hate speech to some. It's only because they are refusing to look at the truth. The truth just is. We look at the truth and then we find the things that unite us and we stand together. And we'll make it through anything.

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.
