GLENN: I've not had one. Stu has been talking about the Milky Way hot chocolate.

STU: Here's what's amazing. I made a prediction last hour for this year and it's already happened. I'm one for one.

GLENN: Smells good.

STU: Does smell good. I would say that it's, we calculated it as 800% chocolate and 300% caramel.

GLENN: That's pretty good.

STU: It is good, isn't it?

GLENN: It is good.

STU: Dunkin' Donuts is doing a good job with their hot chocolate flavors.

GLENN: Dunkin' Donuts is for real people. When I used to drink coffee, I hated Starbucks.

STU: Really?

GLENN: I hated Starbucks. I'm not saying all those frufru things up on the counter. Shut up. I want a cup of coffee, please. Dunkin' Donuts I thought was the best coffee out there.

STU: Yeah, a lot of people feel that way. That's definitely our staff's, you know, mainstream --

GLENN: Is it?

STU: Yeah, I would say.

GLENN: You know what? Because we're real people.

STU: I wouldn't say that but I would say that we have the coffee of real people.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: We're totally --

GLENN: Okay. Take money out of it.

STU: I don't mean that, even in that way. I just mean that, you know, most of us in some way are insane or bizarre. But the overall thing is that doesn't really affect coffee. I think like -- because I like the Milky Way hot chocolate. They also have white hot chocolate at Dunkin' Donuts.

GLENN: This pisses me off, and I'm sorry. This pisses me off. On the top of Dunkin' Donuts' coffee lid.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Caution, hot. No crap! Really? You think so?

STU: You don't think the word in the title of the product is enough of a warning?

GLENN: Hot chocolate!

STU: Like coffee, maybe you can make the argument that people might not know coffee is hot. There is ice coffee.

GLENN: Ice coffee.

STU: Right.

GLENN: This is hot chocolate!

STU: But over at, like, Starbucks they have peppermint hot chocolate.

GLENN: I may have to, I may have to sample.

STU: You want me to send --

GLENN: I may have to test the peppermint hot chocolate.

STU: It is very tasty.

GLENN: Is it?

STU: I will say that I will be getting one of them later tonight. I already had a Milky Way hot chocolate.

GLENN: I don't know. See, though, again that's going the frufru route.

STU: It's a little uppity but it's very tasty.

GLENN: It is peppermint. It's a little -- caramel, ooh. Even though caramel is -- if you say it's caramel hot chocolate, then it's okay. If it's caramel hot chocolate, it would be sold at Starbucks.

STU: See this is, I think, though -- I mean, essentially what you're drinking right now is caramel hot chocolate but they were smart enough to name -- we need drinks named after candy bars. There's just not enough of them. How can we drink a candy bar more often is one of the main goals of this society.

GLENN: May I just point out that this program costs about $10,000 a minute. So anyway, you were saying?

STU: Just saying that Milky Way hot chocolate -- and this -- we should be charging for this but we're not. But it's very good. The white hot chocolate is tasty, too. Have you tried that, the white hot chocolate?

GLENN: I don't like white chocolate.

STU: I wouldn't say that you have to. It doesn't necessarily -- I would say it's almost in a marshmallow hot chocolate sort of direction. It's not quite white hot chocolate. It's pretty tasty, though.

GLENN: I don't like Milky Way bars generally speaking.

STU: Really? I don't understand how that's possible.

GLENN: Wait, wait, not Milky Way. Yeah, Milky Way. Or is it Three Musketeers? Which one has that crap in the middle of it?

STU: Well, they both have knew GATT, of course, they both have that. The Milky Way has caramel. Caramel.

GLENN: I think I can tolerate the caramel, caramel. I can tolerate that. I'm not a big fan of it but I can tolerate it. It makes the nougat okay.

STU: I love the nougat. Nougat is my favorite part.

GLENN: I don't even know what it is.

STU: It's the base of the candy bar.

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's nougat.

GLENN: What is it made of?

STU: What kind of question is that? I mean --

GLENN: It could be stuff that they go to, like, shelters all across the country and they're like, when they fall asleep, take the stuff in between their toes and jam it into a candy bar. You don't know.

STU: If it tastes like that, I don't care. Who cares. I think it honestly is -- okay, I'm going to just throw it out there. I think it's loosely marshmallow-based perhaps like a chocolaty marshmallow?

GLENN: Look it up, Dan.

STU: What is nougat? I think it's more of a --

GLENN: It's gross.

STU: What are you talking about?

GLENN: A Three Musketeers bar? Makes me want to vomit.

STU: What are you talking about?

GLENN: It does. It's the only candy bar?

STU: I'll rip one of those you have. Sarah's going to be walking up and down the stairs all day today with the way we're talking about food.

GLENN: This is good and everything. Kind of wearing thin on me.

STU: It's tough to --

GLENN: It's very intense.

STU: Yeah, that's a very, very good word. It's like you can do a small but when you get into mediums and larges, it gets hard he. It's a little rich.

GLENN: Unless I had, like, a vial of cream. If you just take, like, wash it down with some heavy cream.

STU: And you know what's shocking because I was looking at the prediction sheet for 2008 from Fusion. They actually predict you're going to gain weight this year.

GLENN: For 2008 or for last year?

STU: Well, that wouldn't be a prediction. That would be a --

GLENN: That would just be an accurate statement, be an accurate statement.

STU: That would be exercising your eyes.

GLENN: Right now as I'm on -- you know, because we have the cameras here in the studio and the people at the Time-Warner Center are watching and as they're watching me drink the hot chocolate from Dunkin' Donuts, Conway Cliff is weeping. There are several executives right now at the Time-Warner Center going, why (crying), why.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
