CONGRESSMAN STARK: The minutemen want to have something to say? What -- who are you going to kill today?

VOICE: Who are we going to kill today?

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Yeah.

VOICE: What I would like to know, actually American citizens are being killed right now (inaudible.)

CONGRESSMAN STARK: That's right.

VOICE: Okay. I want to know why the Federal Government is not doing anything or doing a lot more to seal our borders in this country so that we're a solvent country again.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: We can't get enough minutemen armed (inaudible) so that they could stop shooting people here.

VOICE: It's not a-- the United States government--.

(Crosstalk.)

CONGRESSMAN STARK: We'll try and get you some more arms and get you down there to

VOICE: We don't want to go down there. We want to have lives, normal lives. We pay taxes and we pay to have the government take care of our borders.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Is that all?

VOICE: Is that all what?

CONGRESSMAN STARK: The government should do?

VOICE: Well, that's one of the things the government is supposed to do.

GLENN: Hang on. I -- my blood is boiling on this. The arrogance, When he says, We don't want to do this. You know, Washington, do you think this is what we want to do? I didn't get into this business-- . Read my first book. I have become the talk show host that I have always despised. Somebody who's got a cause. I don't want to do this. Americans don't want to do this. Americans want to go home and be with their children. Americans don't really want to be pariahs. Americans don't want to go out and stand on the border do the job that we're currently paying to have done. We don't want to even believe the stuff that we do.


Rep. Stark Mocks Border Concerns (Story)

My gosh. The arrogance, the arrogance. I've never seen anything like it.

PAT: And the accusations, the slandering of the minutemen who have never shot a single person, they've never shot anyone on the border.

GLENN: The Federal Government t is currently sending more money to fund what? The Mexican Army, the Mexican Army gets their ass kicked every time by the drug cartels. Every time we send new technology down, every time we train new people, they are absorbed into the drug cartels. By sending more money down to Mexico for more training or more anything, it goes right directly as an asset to the drug cartels. What are we doing?! We are empowering the cartels.

Nobody in the media? . Have they not seen-- do you know what I should do, except they would throw me in jail for doing this. I should send Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric and Brian Williams, every member of the press corp the pictures of the heads that I have. I have pictures of heads, people who have been beheaded just on the other side of the border. I don't know. That seems like a pretty dangerous situation. Putting heads on stakes. What do you think? We've now had to close a park 80miles in, 80miles in. We've had to close it. Why? It's too dangerous for Americans. Oh. Oh, it's too dangerous? Why? Are there bears in there? No. We don't have control of our borders. Oh. So, let's just close the park. Let's close 80miles into the U.S. land. Let's just close it.

What? What are we? I don't-- I'm sorry to rant. I wanted to play this all the way through, but I think my head going to explode with the sarcasm, the contempt of this Congressman for his own constituents. Take a deep breath. Let's play the rest.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Because we don't need the minutemen.

VOICE: That's correct.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Good. Let's send the minutemen home. That's a good idea.

VOICE: Answer the question.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: What answer?

CONGRESSMAN STARK: What kind of an answer would you like, young man? He asked the question?

VOICE: Please do answer the question.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Yeah. What's your question?

VOICE: The question is why is the Federal Government leaving our borders for anybody to come in anywhere they want?

CONGRESSMAN STARK: If you do anything about our borders-- (applause.)

GLENN: Stop, stop. Thank goodness the troops have arrived. Here's a guy just taking a pummeling from a Congressman and finally somebody says, Answer the damn question, and then somebody else says, Yeah. Answer the question. And somebody else says, Yeah. Why don't you answer the question? And finally, when the question is asked, the troops arrive and people start to applaud. Now the Congressman is on the ropes, or is he?

We are talking about Pete Stark from California and what's happening when he had a meeting and a guy says, Hey, what are you going to do with the border? Now, Pete Stark just starts mocking him and finally somebody else stands up and says, Answer the question. What are you doing on the border? Everybody starts to applaud, everybody starts to, you know, support the guy who was asking the question and now is he on the ropes? Listen to what he says.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: You would know that that's not the case. Our borders are quite secure. Thank you.

VOICE: What do you mean? People are flowing in here at an alarming rate. Hundreds of thousands of people are flowing in every year.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: Yes.

VOICE: Okay. And so that is not secure.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: And how would you secure it?

GLENN: Well, no. Tell me. I mean, I'm not the government.

VOICE: I would send about 25,000 troops down there, for one thing, and I would build a wall down there that it so difficult --

CONGRESSMAN STARK: How high and how long would that wall be?

VOICE: As high and as long as it takes.

VOICE: Yeah. (Applause.)

CONGRESSMAN STARK: I'll tell you what. We'll go down there. You design the wall and--

GLENN: Listen to this jerk.

CONGRESSMAN STARK: As soon as we know (inaudible) if you don't want the people coming over, then I'll go down and we'll start a ladder company, but I've got to know how high.

GLENN: What a guy.

PAT: He goes on with that for nine minutes, nine minutes.

STU: He didn't say one intelligent thing in that.

PAT: No, he didn't.

GLENN: He was mocking.

PAT: He was mocking. He was ridiculing. He was lying.

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.
