STU: Oh, wow. So we have addressed some of the secondary claims the White House has made.

GLENN: This is the White House. Now remember, I have made some claims that people have said are outrageous, are crazy, conspiratorial. You name it, they have said it about me. So now the White House has decided enough is enough and they are going to take me on face to face. They are going right at me. Guns ablazing, everything they have. The White House blog now has a little section. What do they call it?

STU: Reality check.

GLENN: Reality check, section at whitehouse.gov, reality check.

STU: This one in particular is termed trying to turn a point of pride into a moment of shame.

GLENN: I saw this. And I thought, there is nothing, there's nothing like the White House website coming after me and saying and I thought, okay, I got the whole, I have the whole Olympic thing wrong. I've turned

PAT: Did you get a chill, kind of a chill down your spine?

GLENN: I did, a thrill up my leg and a chill down my spine. They met somewhere in the private area and it

PAT: I don't even want to hear about it.

GLENN: Yeah, you shouldn't. Okay. So anyway here's what

STU: Now, this is their lead claim.

GLENN: This is their lead claim.

STU: This is what they led with.

GLENN: All right. I want to correct this right away because what I've said is massive corruption coming our way. Look out. I talked about Air Force One and Air Force Two, a 747 and a 727 just spewing toxins just so they could fly over to Copenhagen and, you know, get the Olympics for Chicago which is going to hemorrhage money. And just be corrupt. All right. So what do I have?

STU: The number one claim.

GLENN: Number one claim.

STU: Against Glenn Beck.

GLENN: And I want to apologize right now. I know I have it wrong.

STU: Rhetoric.

GLENN: Rhetoric.

STU: Beck said Vancouver lost $1 billion when it, quote, had the Olympics. Glenn Beck said Vancouver lost now this is a quote, by the way. Vancouver lost, how much was it? They lost a billion dollars when they had the Olympics. The source's transcript, Glenn Beck show 9/29/09. Reality? Are you ready for the reality? Are you ready for the reality?

PAT: I'm ready.

STU: From the White House, Vancouver's Olympics will not take place until 2010. How could they have lost the money if it hasn't even happened yet? They nailed you in your face, in your face! Sucker! Yeah.

PAT: You are going down! Oh, man. It's over.

STU: It's over. It's over. The media entire is about to collapse.

GLENN: Hold on just a second. I thought that I was actually going to have to apologize. I thought I was going to contend with some real, some real problems here. Let me just take another approach here.

PAT: Well, you've finally been caught, haven't you, Mr. Beck? This is rich. Like you are, Mr. Fatty Fat Fatso with a big fat wallet, climbing up the backs of the door, eating small children as you go.

GLENN: I get it, I get it, I get it. Get to the

PAT: You said the Vancouver Olympics already happened when they don't even happen until 2010.

GLENN: Yeah. See, here's what I here's what happened.

PAT: I am so stupid.

PAT: I looked down my notes for the question and read Vancouver instead of Calgary.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: So I misspoke. I should have said Calgary and not Vancouver.

PAT: Oh, you misspoke.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: But apparently nobody's disagreeing that Calgary hemorrhaged money because they didn't respond to, you know, the hemorrhaging money of I mean, you could easily see how that was a mistake. I, you know, said Vancouver instead of Calgary. I was just in Washington State. I know that the Olympics happened up there, you know, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Isn't this kind of a strange thing to attack? I mean, I'm talking about the Olympics losing billions of dollars. I'm talking about corruption, and they are calling me out on the order of Olympic cities? I mean, this is like is this trivial pursuit? Because I mean, it's like we're doing Olympic trivia or something like that. I'm not sure who won the bronze medal for speed skating in Calgary that year but I guess the White House is going to, you know I'll just have to go to the White House for that kind of information because they will have that, I'm sure.

PAT: Keep talking, keep talking.

GLENN: Luckily they don't have wars to deal with an economic crisis or corruption in Chicago or anything like that.

PAT: It's not about the date and you know it.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It's about the fact that you said Vancouver lost a ton of money and the event hasn't even happened yet. That's what it's about.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Calgary instead of Vancouver. I'm sorry for that one. I stand corrected. But when looking at it from a financial perspective, it's not really a two week event, is it? It takes years and years and years. Ask the people in Vancouver if spending on the Olympics has started yet. It's kind of like Medicare on Social Security. You know, they aren't tens of trillions in debt yet, but any honest observer with a calculator can figure out that that's just a matter of time. What doesn't make any sense, I mean, if you are the White House, why would you draw attention to the Vancouver games, you know?

PAT: Well, because. Because you want the truth out about them.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You said they were losing a fortune. And they haven't even had the games there.

GLENN: All right. Well, you asked for it. So well, you didn't. But at least the White House asked for the details on the Vancouver games. So let's give you the details on the Vancouver games, which again haven't happened yet. The Vancouver Olympics budgeted $175 million for security. According to the Vancouver Sun, that number may be $800 million higher. British Columbia's auditor general reported that British Columbia, quote, has not fully disclosed the risks associated with the cost and revenue projections, end quote. He says they didn't include, quote, what he and two previous auditors believe should be counted as Olympic related costs. The billion dollar sea to sky highway improvements, the billion dollar trade and convention center and the $2 billion Canada line. That's close to $4 billion that they just kind of shuffled off onto other books. Plus the $600 million the government admits to.

PAT: Okay, but those numbers don't

GLENN: Hold on just a second. I'm not entirely done here. Also missing from the budget, the $300 million Olympic bonus that unionized government employees got for signing a four year contract that ends after the games. I just, I just love these unions. By the way, that contract ends right after the election, too. Transportation to the event, which is another unaccounted for $250 million, Canadians are also on the hook for the Olympic village for a billion dollars. Its original budget was less than $200 million. They thought they could make the money back by selling everything as condos after the games. Yeah, guess how well those condo sales strategies are working out for them. Just interest on the money for all the unsold units could cost Canada $48 million. Every single year. So far we're up to over $6 billion in unaccounted for costs. The original budget was $1 1/2 billion. Also remember it doesn't include everything. There's still almost a year before the games actually start, but, you know, don't worry. They planned for this, you know. They have a contingency fund. $66.8 million. Unfortunately they've already spent 98% of that money.

PAT: Yeah, well, you still made up the cities. You got that wrong, Vancouver, Vancouver, Canada.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

Image source: Glenn Beck Program on BlazeTV

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
