PAT: Sadly, or maybe mercifully, last night was Larry King's final night of broadcast. And beautifully Katie Couric marked the occasion with a heartfelt poem that I feel really quite compelled to share.

KATIE: I decided, Larry, that I was going to write you a poem bemoaning the fact that you're leaving your home. What are we to do without our top talker? Here's an ode filled with love from me and Miss Walker as you hang up your suspenders on your dressing room door, I speak for us all when I say we want more, more of the show that we instantly loved for 25 years couldn't get enough of. Your unique take on politics, culture and crime, never cutting off guests, except for Barbara, always giving them time. You made NAFTA exciting, and that's hard to do. And you scored Paris Hilton's post-jail interview.

PAT: And gave me the flu.

KATIE: Sinatra, Clint Eastwood, Becall, so many stars I just can't name them all. From Heather Mills' legs to Ross Perot's twang, you always cajole, not harass or harangue, but there were moments when your guests had a cow, Seinfeld wasn't cancelled, Larry, but I guess you know that by now.

PAT: I doubt it.

KATIE: Mike Tyson KO'd without throwing a punch. And you got Miss California's sash in a bunch. You went gaga for Gaga, Sharon Stone, Janet Jackson, alas it was Brando who gave you some action. Eight presidents joined you from Nixon to Obama and you brought us each moment of OJ's long drama. Some startling shows I'll never forget. Tammy Fay's eyes. Ted Haggard's regret. Your guests made us cry, made us laugh, made us think. Winona Judd told you about a podwink. I hadn't heard that before, so I looked the phrase up, it's a miracle, blessing, an overfilled cup. That's what you are. And as Old Blue Eyes might say: The best is yet to come, Larry. You did it your way.

PAT: Ah, that was beautiful. That moved me deeply. And really, really honestly did. It was reminiscent -- it was a poem given in a fashion reminiscent of not Genghis Khan, as John Kerry would say, more reminiscent of Al Gore on that fine day.

GORE: One thin September soon A floating continent disappears

In midnight sun Vapors rise as Fever settles on an acid sea

Neptune's bones dissolve Snow glides from the mountain Ice fathers floods for a season A hard rain comes quickly Then dirt is parched Kindling is placed in the forest For the lightning's celebration



Couric: An ode, to the King

Unknown creatures Take their leave, unmourned Horsemen ready their stirrups Passion seeks heroes and friends The bell of the city

On the hill is rung The shepherd cries The hour of choosing has arrived Here are your tools.

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that.

PAT: Me too.

JEFF: I'm happy to hear it.

PAT: Me too.

JEFF: Outstanding.

PAT: Best part of the whole thing.

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that poem.

PAT: Us, too, Harry, us, too. It has added 365 days of joy to this program. Neptunes bone dissolve.

JEFF: I am so glad you read that.

PAT: Yep, we all are. You know, tis the season for an Al Gore poem, really. But this isn't -- that's probably a little too obnoxious for this. We need something more generic. Maybe something like this, for another Al Gore poem. [Music] it was the night before Christmas, when all through the energy efficient solar-paneled house not a creature was stirring, because humankind had killed them all with manmade global warming brought on by our ways. The stockings were hung by the chimney with care. But we dare not light a fire, children, because of the damage the smoke could do to our atmosphere and the trees. The trees. The children were nestled all snug in their beds that were filled with biodegradeable 100 percent recycled material, and the only lights a twinkling were of the CFL energy saving variety no incandescents here. While visions of sugar free trans fat free healthy fruits and vegetables danced in their heads, with Tipper in her kerchief and I in my earth-friendly Green Peace logoed cap, we had just settled in for a long winter's nap. To rest my wary planet-loving body before it dissolves the way Neptune's bones did [music] I still have it. I hit those vocals every time. I still have it top 40 --

JEFF: I'm so glad you read that.

PAT: Thank you. You are -- thank you, Jeffie. Thank you, in my own voice there, yes. I think it was pretty safe. And I think it was pretty -- I think it was pretty Christmassy, and I think it was pretty touching, I think it was pretty meaningful.

JEFF: It was beautiful, thank you again.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
