GLENN: Let's move on with this. So here we go.

VOICE: Good luck with Rio. Now, last year I was elected with a mandate to bring this country "Change we could believe in" and as time has passed, it has become clear that this promise is troubling to some people. There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I'm turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. But that's just not the case. Because when you look at my record, it's very clear what I've done so far and that is... nothing. (Laughter). Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it. You don't believe me? You think I'm making it up? Take a look at this checklist.

Now, on my first day in office... (laughter), in my first day in office I said I've closed Guantanamo Bay. Is it closed yet? No. (Laughter). I said we'd be out of Iraq. Are we? Not the last time I checked. (Laughter). I said I'd make improvements in the war in Afghanistan. Is it better? No, I think it's actually worse. (Laughter). How about health care reform? Hell no. (Laughter). I even, I even went personally to try to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. It didn't work out. But in this case there's some good news with the bad. For every person who buys an American car in the next six months, you're going to get... one of these. (Laughter)

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's a T‑shirt.

PAT: It's a 2016, Chicago 2016 T‑shirt.

(Applause).

VOICE: Now, I just don't see why the right is so riled up. I mean, how do you think the left feels? They are the ones that should be mad. Now, I'm sure they thought I would have addressed at least one of the following things by now: Global warming. No. Immigration reform? No. Gays in the military? Nuh‑uh. Limits on executive powers? No. Torture prosecutions? No. So looking at this list I'm seeing two big accomplishments: Jack and squat. (Laughter). And remember, I can do whatever I want. I have a majority in both houses of congress. I could make it mandatory for all gays to marry and require all cars to run on marijuana, but do I? No. (Laughter). But it's not all bad news. I have a few accomplishments. The Cash For Clunkers program really stimulated the economy. Unfortunately it was the economy of Japan. (Laughter). Let's see what else. Also I killed a fly on TV. Remember that? (Laughter). I brought a white police officer and a black professor together for a beer. Who else could do that? (Laughter). You're right. Oprah. No one else. (Laughter). So please stop saying this country is on the road to socialism. If that were actually the case, I'd be making some real changes. Instead it took me four months to pick out a dog. So all of you frothing Glenn Beck supporters, put away those tricorner hats and those PhotoShop pictures of me as the Joker because if I see any more of this hateful rhetoric, I'm going to have to take drastic action... no, not really. (Laughter).

PAT: So that's essentially it.

STU: That's a pretty funny ‑‑ it's a pretty funny bit.

PAT: Mildly amusing.

GLENN: It's groundbreaking. Mildly amusing? It is groundbreaking. I have not seen anyone in the mainstream media take on anyone, no one. This is the first comedic punt.

PAT: Yeah. It's interesting how they took him on, though. They took him on if that he hasn't done enough of his leftist agenda.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: I mean you are not socialist enough.

GLENN: That's how they take him on. You did take over the car companies, yeah.

STU: But that's okay. At least it's something.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: You've got to give him credit for that.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: Like we criticized George Bush generally because he wasn't being conservative enough. That doesn't mean it wasn't criticism.

GLENN: When Barack Obama can't get the Olympics done, I mean, this is a debacle. Valerie Jarrett said, "Our intel said we were really close, we were number two. There was only ‑‑ it was down to two of us." They were last place. They were in last place. Their intelligence was wrong on the Olympic committee. Can you imagine how good our intelligence is on Iran?

PAT: It's a little scary.

GLENN: I mean, it's unbelievable. And by the way, it took 48 minutes before they started blaming it on George Bush.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It took an hour and 42 minutes before they started blaming the loss on me.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's amazing.

PAT: By the way, this isn't about the number of Olympics lost. It's about the number of Olympics saved or created. They are still on track. They are still on track.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: So let's give them a break.

GLENN: Okay, thank you, Pat, I appreciate that.

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.
