Glenn Beck: POTUS seeking 'ass to kick'

GLENN: Okay. I want to play the audio that is so unpresidential that I've never heard a president say this. And it's odd. It just doesn't feel right. And the press is all saying, "Well, he's just trying to show passion." No. No, he's not. That is a misunderstanding on what these — who these people are and who the president is keeping at bay. Go ahead. Play the audio.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I was down there a month ago before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be.

GLENN: That's quite a statement.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I don't stand around talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answer so I know who —

GLENN: Can you stop for a second? Could you stop for a second? Could you look up — what is he talking about? Could somebody in the audience? And e mail that to — to you, Pat? Give your e mail address. Can they e mail it to you? Do you have —

PAT: Yeah, just Pat@... at —

GLENN: GlennBeck.com.

PAT: GlennBeck.com.

GLENN: Did he want to give it out. Listen, here's the thing. Somebody look this up. Why was he down there a month ago? Because a month ago was about the time that the president of BP was selling all of his shares and about the same time that Goldman Sachs sold about a half a billion dollars worth of their shares in BP. So it would be interesting to see, why was he down there a month ago? He was down there a month ago saying what a disaster this could be. What are the odds of that?

PAT: Well, but it's been over a month since this happened. It's been, what, 50 days now? So it could be a month.

GLENN: So wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Hold it just a second. I never even thought of that. It's going on two months.

PAT: Going on two months. And he was down there a month ago.

GLENN: The talking heads were down there 20 days before.

PAT: We were talking about it the first day.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, hello. Okay, that doesn't make any sense. Forget what I just said.

PAT: Good thing I didn't give the e mail address for that.

GLENN: These aren't the droids you were looking for. What a ridiculous — I lose time now?

PAT: It's gone by so fast.

GLENN: It's gone by so fast. That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard: I was down there 20 days after this thing started. Oh!

PAT: We talked about that. Do you remember?

GLENN: I know.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But I thought he was referring to something that — I forgot that it was already —

PAT: Yeah, it bean a while.

GLENN: It's been more than a month. And here's what he's saying. Listen, this is on the Today Show. This is with Matt Lauer.

PAT: So he made me stop it there. All right, here it goes again.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I was down there a month ago before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. And I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.

PAT: Oh, that's — oh, that's presidential, very classy. That's classy.

GLENN: Never heard him say that. Now, here's how the media is spinning this. That he's saying that because they are saying did he have passion on anything. Well, hello. This is a new revelation to you? I mean, show me a time that he has gotten anything but angry. I haven't seen it. And believe me, don't poke the monster. Don't. Don't poke him. I don't want to see him rip off that mask of total serenity. Thank you. Notice he says the talking heads. It's not the talking heads. He's got the uber left coming out against him. It's the uber left that's coming out. Why is he pinning it on the talking heads? He's losing his support... from the left. When we come back, I want to explain, I want to explain the anarchists of the early 1900s and the connection of what is happening today. This is really important because it goes to a big meeting that is happening in Washington yesterday, today and tomorrow, and they are progressives having a big convention in Washington. One of the topics I think tomorrow, we've got to get a camera there. I've got to see this. The Beck and Bachmann problem. I love that. That's good. Maybe Michelle and I could go and attend together. This is the heat from the uber left. It all will come together for you in your head and it will all — you'll understand because you'll see it in Europe. It's already happening. I have to correct one mistake that I've made and it was a critical mistake, and when I correct it, all of a sudden the formula works.

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.
