GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. I am very impressed, in Phoenix with the hard working Americans who just want to be here.

PAT: Because they love the country.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: They are just looking for a better life for their families.

GLENN: Sure.

PAT: That's all they want.

GLENN: Sure. And I appreciate that it's the tea parties that are violent.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And they are the radicals. They are the radicals.

PAT: Yeah. Mean, hateful.

GLENN: Well, not exactly.

VOICE: There's a somewhat chaotic scene out in front of the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix. We'll take live pictures from sky fox here. You can see it is a sizable crowd that has gathered, a Mexican flag out front and a lot of protestors holding up signs really expressing, you see them kind of chanting?

VOICE: But what I can tell you is that several protestors have been arrested at this time that I can tell. It seems that some more could be heading in that direction. What were expected to be peaceful protests today is turning in another direction.

GLENN: I wouldn't have seen that. I wouldn't have seen that coming. Now, what's really interesting is some of the protestors are members of SDS. That's

PAT: Some others are SEIU members.

GLENN: I'm sorry, what?

PAT: SEIU.

GLENN: Now wait a minute. SEIU, that's where Andy Stern was, right?

PAT: Yeah, it is.

GLENN: SEIU, the union SEIU. And wasn't Andy Stern, when he was in college, wasn't he in SDS?

PAT: A member of SDS? Yeah.

GLENN: A member of SDS. Hey, the Weather Underground, they came from SDS, didn't they?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then ACORN came from SDS.

PAT: Sure did.

GLENN: Cloward and Piven came from SDS.

PAT: SDS.

GLENN: That's weird and so

PAT: Now these people

GLENN: SEIU and SDS members were arrested.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: What are the odds?

PAT: Isn't that interesting.

GLENN: We should go to Vegas because we're just hitting incredible odds because that's definitely not orchestrated, nor is it something that we said would happen. No.

STU: You've got to take into account, though, that everybody knows a couple dozen people who are in SDS. Everybody---

GLENN: No.

PAT: We've seen that at live rallies lately where

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You've asked. And how many hands have gone up?

STU: Oh, it's just flooded with people.

PAT: I mean, in crowds of thousands of people, I'll bet three hands have gone up.

GLENN: May I just say with Bill O'Reilly, we were at Kansas City on Friday and I did a luncheon Friday. There were 1400 people there. And I asked, and nobody's hand went up. Then I went to Long Island.

PAT: That wasn't a diverse crowd, though.

GLENN: No, it wasn't.

PAT: Saturday night we had a diverse crowd.

GLENN: And I said, who is a member of SDS. And one hand went up. And it was a lady in the front row. And I joked with her and I said, from the New York Times? And she just shook her head. And I said, oh. You're from

PAT: CBS?

GLENN: CBS? And she said no. I started walking I was making a comedic point and she said, CNN.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: She was from CNN. And I said, ah, okay.

STU: That's real?

PAT: Oh, yeah. That actually happened.

GLENN: And she hated me.

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Hated me like poison.

STU: But she was there to cover the event?

GLENN: No. She was there because her husband is a fan and her husband wanted to see it and so it was his birthday --

PAT: That's a lot of love.

GLENN: That's a lot of love.

PAT: That's a lot of love.

GLENN: And she was poison darts coming my way like you wouldn't believe for the entire show.

PAT: Now, how did you know? How did you know the story behind that? How did you find that out?

GLENN: She said it. I asked her.

PAT: Okay. Right there on the stage?

GLENN: I asked her at the end. In the second half she was just still killing me with her eyes. And I am like, honestly, why are you here? I mean, was this a penalty of some sort? Did you go to some progressive judge where they are like, "Bad you! Voting for a conservative! You now have to go to the penalty box and see Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly." I said, how did this happen? And so she told me. Now, there's something else I asked, who has ever been for the violent overthrow of the United States government?

PAT: This was amazing.

GLENN: This was amazing. About four people raised their hand in Long Island.

STU: That's a lot for that question. And there was none in Kansas City?

GLENN: They were together no, there was none in Kansas City. They were together and they were hostile hippies.

PAT: I don't know why they were there.

GLENN: I don't know why they were there. They weren't there by the second half. I think they were there just maybe to disrupt because they were very disruptive. The second half I brought them a plate of warm cookies and they were gone and I was kind of disappointed because I had the kitchen backstage make these warm cookies for the hippies. I figure, I know the way I can get to hippies. I can talk to hippies.

PAT: By the second half, they got the munchies.

GLENN: They are all stoned. Just bring them hot cookies and they will be fine. They are like, hey, I'm for capitalism, rah, rah.

PAT: Doritos, dude?

GLENN: Yeah, that's the way it works. But you ask yourself, how many people, how many people do you know have called for the violent overthrow of the United States government? How many people do you know have blown up the Pentagon, wanted to kill police officers, call them pigs? How many people do you know are members of SDS? How many people do you know were members of the Weather Underground? How many members or how many people do you know are avowed communists? Avowed revolutionaries? How many people do you know? This White House has tons of them. It's time to wake up and see what is coming, and what is coming is what was happening there in Arizona. And I want to address that because violence is coming, but the left will blame it on me, as they already are today and my German ancestors, I love that one. It's important that you understand what they are doing and why they are doing it.

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
