GLENN: I want to go with cut 376, please, CNBC reporter is concerned that the CNBC, these conspiracy freaks are concerned that the President is setting up his own legal system. Here it is.

VOICE: I guess the other point really becomes and, Rick, whoever wants to take this, did BP end up really doing the right thing here? They definitely got strong armed, it seems, into doing this. Did they make the right decision into cutting the dividend?

VOICE: In cutting the dividend or in joining up with that fund? In cutting the dividend, yeah, it's smart to save cash in the face of an unknown liability, but I'm very troubled by the fact that the President has, once again, created his own sense of a legal system. He fired the CEO of General Motors, he circumvented the rights of bond holders in the GM situation, and now he's confiscated $20 billion from a company wait a minute to set up, quote, a financial and legal framework that already exists. It's not his job to create laws. It's his job to enforce laws.

PAT: Hum.

GLENN: Huh. Let me go to let me go to cut 303, also, MSNBC.

VOICE: When does the President become a dictator on this? When does the President start really calling the shots and saying, This is the number, this is what you're going to pay, we're not going to let you off the hook?

GLENN: Okay. So, we have on CNBC we have somebody saying I'm very concerned he's setting up his own laws, he's setting up his own system. You have MSNBC saying, when is he going to just become a dictator? Then you have a senator asked on MSNBC, what gives them the authority to force BP to pay? Cut 389. Listen to what she had to say.

VOICE: He have a specific question for you on what legal basis can the government demand that BP set aside this money? What's the specific legal authority for this?

VOICE: Well, first of all, if we have to pass a statute to create that authority, we will, but I think the basic focus here is BP has said they're going to pay. So, let's start footing the bill.

GLENN: Hum. If we have to pass it after the President the President asked for it. If he wants more authority just to take money, we'll pass it. We'll give it.

PAT: And then grandfather that in.

GLENN: That's interesting.

PAT: Hum.

MSNBC's Schultz Asks When Obama Will 'Become a Dictator' on Gulf Cleanup

GLENN: Now, it is fascinating to me that the very people that have been ridiculing for me and you and everyone else in this country that has stood up and said, we are headed in the down the same roads that Europe headed down in the 1930's, they're the ones now calling for a dictatorship, they're the ones saying it's okay for a dictatorship.

We have some disturbing audio, cut 392. This one's coming from New Haven, Connecticut. This is a school that is well, they're having the kids chant. Listen to this.

VOICE: Anything, anything, anything, anything I want to be I want, doctor, lawyer, judge, journalist, writer, fire fighter, principal, President, President, President, anything, anything, I want to be. If my mind can conceive it and my heart can believe it, then I know, I know, I know, I can achieve it, because I am an Obama scholar, an Obama scholar and I will strive to be, out outstanding, brilliant, I will achieve, I'll be motivated, positive attitude, positive attitude, mountain, move out of my way.

GLENN: Fascinating to me.

PAT: It's reminiscent of what we heard, what was, a year, year and a half ago about the Obama militant kids who were chanting about Obama. Do you remember that?

VOICE: Alpha omega, alpha omega.

GLENN: It was almost like a little civilian Army happening here.

VOICE: President Obama, because of Obama I will strive to be the next doctor, because of Obama, I will strive to be the next lawyer. Because of Obama, I will strive to be the next auto technician. Because of Obama, I will strive to be the next architect.

GLENN: This is frightening.

VOICE: Because of Obama, I am striving to be the next engineer.

PAT: Then there were the young kids that got to go for the choir.

'Obama scholars' sing The One's praises

VOICE: We're going to spread happiness. We're going to spread freedom. Obama's going to change it. Obama's going to lead them. We're going to change it and rearrange it.

GLENN: It's frightening.

PAT: Creepy

VOICE: We're going to change the world.

GLENN: I don't think I need to hear any more. Go back to cut 303, please.

VOICE: When does the President become a dictator on this? When does the President start really calling the shots and saying, this is the number, this is what you're going to pay, we're not going to let you off the hook?

GLENN: Progressives will tell that you they don't want a dictatorship. They'll tell you that Fascism is crazy, they'll tell you that communism is crazy, but when it comes down to it, that's exactly what they want. If you can play the Bill Maher force them, tell them what to do, in the end progressives believe they are smarter than you. They believe that if they can talk down to you enough or Cass Sunstein can nudge you enough, but in the end, they if you can't get it done, when are you going to become a dictator? This is exactly, exactly what happened with FDR, but not nearly this quickly. And luckily, by the time his people said to him, you have got to take the reigns, you have to be a dictator, by the time they actually said those words to him, most of America was on to him. In 1939, 50 some percent was afraid and felt that the United States was turning into a dictatorship. That's when he was told, take the reigns. We still have so many people that don't even see this coming, that we have cheerleaders on the side, on the left, saying, Become a dictatorship.

It is not the President's job to create new laws. That's the job of the Congress. It is not the job of the President to dictate terms. Now, I read the other day, I was reading in the Bible. I was reading in a story from the Old Testament and it talked about the sins of the fathers coming back on the sons and I thought, since when? We don't pay for the sins of the father. My dad did something wrong, my dad pays for it. No, no. The sins of the father are about to come down on the sin for the son and I'll explain and a way out, next.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.
