SARAH: And now a Glenn Beck Program Olympic update.

STU: Excellent job, Sarah.

GLENN: This is great.

STU: It's Stu. I am live in the other studio across the room with glass kind of in between us.

GLENN: Stu, can you hear me?

STU: Yes, I can hear you. Can you hear me?

GLENN: I can hear you.

STU: It's a soundproof window.

GLENN: It is. I don't know the advances in modern technology, the miracle of telephonics here.

STU: It is amazing, Glenn, but I am sitting here right now looking at the same television screen that you're looking at.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And I'm breaking news as we speak.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: There is news coming from over there in Copenhagen.

GLENN: Ya, sure.

STU: Ya, sure. The first round of voting is up for the Olympic games, and the first

GLENN: Wait for it! Wait for it! Enjoy this. Savor this moment.

STU: And the first city to be eliminated is... Chicago. Yes, our president flew all the way over there to fail

GLENN: Not one plane. Just in one plane?

STU: No. Two planes. We need more breaking news. There we go. Two planes.

GLENN: Two planes.

STU: His wife Oprah Winfrey, all the jet fuel needed to lift them.

GLENN: All the massive amounts of corruption that was promised.

STU: All the greenhouse gas emissions, all the publicity, all the excitement.

GLENN: For nothing.

STU: For as the kids call it, an epic fail.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Stu, can you still hear me?

STU: I can can you still see me?

GLENN: I can see you, yes.

STU: And hear me?

GLENN: I can hear you and see you through the glass. Now let me ask you this, Stu.

STU: Yes, Glenn.

GLENN: Are you saying that the president failed?

STU: Glenn, there is no honest observer who could disagree with that statement.

GLENN: Let me ask you this, Stu: In his failure to bring the Olympic games, didn't Putin go over and get the Olympic games?

STU: Yes, he did, Glenn.

GLENN: Wasn't Tony Blair the first to go over and get the Olympic games?

STU: I believe you're correct on that, Glenn.

GLENN: So this would make the is it possible that this is the first head of state of any major country that has ever gone over and made the pitch in person and then failed?

STU: I don't know if that's true, but I'm choosing to believe it, Glenn.

GLENN: We can always hope.

STU: And Glenn, by the way, I don't know if you're noticing this. This is the first absolute undisputable proof of Rush's comment being true: I hope he fails because we're going to need the money. Well, he's failed and guaranteed we've saved money by his failure.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: So it's actually, it's proven to be true.

GLENN: Do you notice there in Daley plaza they have a sign up on one of the buildings: Imagine.

STU: Imagine failure, Glenn.

GLENN: No, no. It says

STU: You don't need to imagine it anymore. It's here.

GLENN: It says Chicago 2016, imagine. And that's exactly what they're going to have to do. In 2016 they'll stand around and imagine what it would have been like to have the Olympics in Chicago.

STU: Welcome to the 2016 imaginary games.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: Seriously that is a you know, we sat here

GLENN: An epic failure, epic failure.

STU: Why

GLENN: Epic failure.

STU: Why did he do this? This is terrible PR.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? Right now oh, my gosh. Chicago received the least votes in the first round.

STU: Yeah, it was eliminated.

GLENN: Yeah, urgent wire here.

STU: Tokyo is now out by the way as well. Tokyo is out. Madrid or Rio.

GLENN: What are they doing? How are they possibly making this? The only one that you could have done on social justice really was Tokyo.

STU: I think Rio, though, because there's never been an Olympic games south of Mexico City, I believe. So I mean, the entire hemisphere is being ignored.

GLENN: Well, that's a pretty big deal.

STU: That is a big deal.

GLENN: And they're just good looking down in Rio. You know what I mean?

STU: There you go. But Glenn, seriously like how isn't this president supposed to be the guy who can talk Ahmadinejad out of a nuclear program?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. They love him.

STU: If he can't get

GLENN: He just gave a speech yesterday and he said, look, it's important. I am the guy I am here to bring the whole world together. I am here to I can I got the whole world in my hand, I got the whole wide world in my hand, I got the whole wide world in my hand, I got... what? Oh, crap.

STU: I have nothing.

GLENN: I've got nothing in my hand.

STU: I've got two jets that need to fly back in my hand. I've got

GLENN: I said yesterday let me tell you something. Somebody right now is about to receive a phone call that will change their life. Somebody, whoever made the decision that said, yes, Mr. President, you should fly the first lady over and then you should join them on the day, so you're in Copenhagen, ya, sure, when this story breaks. There's no way to escape it because you can't be, like, meeting with a general or something. You're going to be in Copenhagen when they announce this. That person, whoever made that, is about, if they haven't already, is about to receive this phone call (making phone noises). "Hello?" "Yeah, pack the stuff. Guess who's got a new job at the Center for American Progress."

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: Guarantee you someone is going to be transferred to the Center for American Progress. Which is weird because it's almost like Siberia.

STU: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: You just go into Siberia and you're just there. You still play a role, but you've brought shame to our fearless leader. Your family, like in the middle of the night, like Van Jones, I don't even know. Is this family? Does his family even know where he is now? Do they just come and get him in the middle of the night and leave his family going, "Where did Daddy go?" "Oh, he went to the Center for American Progress. Shhh, quiet." I'm just sayin'. It's just a question. Just a question.

STU: It's time to turn in the Blackberry.

GLENN: May I ask no, no, the Blackberry is the one connected to the Center for American Progress.

STU: Center for American Progress, yeah, that's a good point.

GLENN: May I ask this question: Is it possible that the president ever finds himself transferred to the Center For American Progress?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: We're not really operating constitutionally now anyway. Could we wake up appeared ever just see a headline that says, "President transferred to the Center for American Progress. New president, John Podesta.

STU: No. Can George Soros just be implemented as king above all of them? That would make things a lot easier.

GLENN: You conspiracy theorist, what evidence do you have that George Soros is involved in any of this? So we have to I guess figure out which city was more corrupt and had bigger bribes to the IOC than Chicago. That's saying something.

STU: Well

GLENN: When we can be outbribed, that's

STU: The problem is that that whole corruption thing from Chicago is so long gone, a lot of these bids and stuff happened back when Rod Blagojevich was governor and he would never be involved in anything.

GLENN: And Mayor Daley, only 41 in his administration have

STU: 47, Glenn, 47.

GLENN: Only 47 have gone to jail for corruption.

STU: So

GLENN: Not 48.

STU: No.

GLENN: Not 50. Only 47.

STU: 50 would be a problem. 47's

GLENN: Well, it depends on how you define "Problem." So there it is. Heart breaking news. Chicago didn't get the Olympics.


 

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.
