Glenn Beck: What's Complicated About Tea Party Movement?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

Why is it that no one in the fringe media can get the tea parties right?

Is it really that tough to figure out why so many people are willing to take precious time out of their busy lives to make their voices heard?

Is it really that complex?

Is it really so difficult to comprehend that people become concerned when their president sets out a mission to "fundamentally transform" the country?

And is it hard to believe so many citizens would recoil at the president's use of the high-pressure tactic of "Act Now!" and respond by saying: "Wait, wait, wait — can you slow down and explain that one a little bit more please?"

Do the people in the media not see their children's future and say, "I don't know how there is a country left for my children, because of all the spending?" Do they not look at the numbers in their own news reports and say, "Wait, that doesn't add up"?

Is it impossible for the media to believe that even those who voted for Obama and want some of the things he talked about, have realized maybe we can't afford all of this right now?

Is there no one that can understand that?

Is there no one in the media who reported on the cries of "Halliburton!" over and over again, that sees ACORN and SEIU and the Apollo Alliance and how president is using them?

THEN-ILLINOIS STATE SENATOR BARACK OBAMA: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth… the tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to pull together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

Do they not see that:

— On the "czars:" It's not a political witch hunt. Americans are just not comfortable with radicals having unchecked authority.

— On health care: If Americans are promised an open and honest debate before overhauling the system — when that promise isn't kept, they ask questions.

— On bailouts and government spending: Americans want to see the government live and play by the same rules they do. Bad investment? Live with the consequences. If you don't have the money, don't spend it.

Can they not see that point of view?

I believe they can see it and they do get it, but they are part of the problem. I'm trying to bring you the truth and I'm trying to understand the world we live in.

And here is some of the reality we face:

— When a major health care company informs its customers of its concerns about health care legislation, they are investigated and threatened with legal action and told by the government to be quiet.

— When regular people oppose government run health care and let their voices be heard at town halls and tea parties, they are labeled "angry mobs" and "teabaggers" and domestic terrorists and gun-toting radicals. And as more people stand up, they will only continue to paint you into the bad guy.

Here's I think the most disturbing thing yet: While they are doing that, they've used the National Endowment for the Arts to make propaganda — we have the audio of the call coming from the White House.

And on top of that, they are now indoctrinating our children. We showed you a video this week — "The Story of Stuff":

NARRATOR: Well, let's start with the government. Now my friends tell me I should use a tank to symbolize the government and that's true in many countries and increasingly in our own — after all more than 50 percent of our federal tax money is now going to the military. But I'm using a person to symbolize the government because I hold true to the vision and values that governments should be of the people, by the people, for the people.

Telling our children that America is a bad place? That movie's paid for by the Tides Foundation and comes out of Berkeley, California, and it's all over our schools.

And then we also have school kids singing a song about Barack Hussein Obama:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CHILDREN SINGING: Mm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that all must lend a hand


To make this country strong again


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said we must be fair today


Equal work means equal pay


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said that we must take a stand


To make sure everyone gets a chance


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

He said red, yellow, black or white


All are equal in his sight


Mmm, mmm, mm!


Barack Hussein Obama

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We're all equal in his sight — as in Barack Obama's sight! And they wonder why people are in the streets?

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.
