Glenn Beck: It's a disenfranchisement Monday!

GLENN: The other story on disenfranchisement that we'll talk about today is how they can't solve murders now. The solvable murder rate is going through the floor and it's going through the floor in cities like Washington, D.C. Whoa, you're kidding me. Really? Where it's corrupt, where there's gang members, et cetera, et cetera, and places like Minneapolis. Wow, that's weird. Wait a minute. What's happening in -- isn't Minneapolis the community that has the high rate of Muslim immigrants, in a Muslim immigrant community where we pointed out over a year ago they are forcing these people into silence? They've got a code of silence in the Somali community. It's because of these extremists. They are telling the Somali community, "You can't trust the government," which again I find it very interesting that, did you notice all of the coverage of Barack Obama and his radio interview that he did last week where he called his grandmother the typical white person that had racism bred into her? Yeah, yeah, I didn't see a lot of that coverage, either. It was on one network, Fox. Everybody else, nobody reported it. Isn't that interesting. In a speech where the guy is talking about, being compared to Abraham Lincoln's "A house divided against itself cannot stand," they compare it to that speech but they don't notice that what he's doing is dividing ourselves. He is dividing all of us. That's what he's doing. How is that even possible, that nobody picks up on that?

So disenfranchisement, that's really the theme of today's program because that's going to lead us to all kinds of problems. The disenfranchisement of not just scaring people into silence with the murder rate, scaring people into silence but also teaching them, don't cooperate, don't cooperate with the police, the government is not your friend. It's not just the Somali community. It's not just the gang community. It's not just the Black Panthers. It's also us. We're also doing the same thing. We're also involved in the same thing. I point out to you every day, you can't trust the government. So do I play a role in this? Or does the government play a role? Do we all have personal responsibility? You know what? Because quite honestly I've had it up to here.

There's a story today in The Wall Street Journal that talks about the economy and the banking sector and it says, oh, the stocks may be up, everything may be looking good for the banking sector, but look out; it's a house of cards. Why is that? It's a house of cards because all that's happened is they flooded the system with bogus money. They flooded the system with government money. They haven't allowed anyone to fail.

So I'm going to set up a little rule. You know what? If you're a slimy politician, we throw you out. You're a racist? I call you a racist, and I thought in a consistent society that none of us should deny that that racist existed. If you are a -- if you kill somebody, I'm going to rat on you and you're going to go to jail. You are an illegal alien? We ship you back home and we build a fence. It's not that hard to solve these problems.

When you're a racist and you say that the Government invented AIDS, do you know now that about 50% -- I'll give you the stats on this -- over 50% of the African-American community now believes that the cure of AIDS exists but the Government won't release it because AIDS kills poor people. That's frightening. A house divided against itself cannot fail.

I told you on September 11th, have no fear. No one will ever defeat the United States of America as long as we stand shoulder to shoulder. Well, it's intentionally being clawed at, and it's not necessarily something nefarious like the Bilderbergs all getting together and saying, "Okay, now what do we do." It's also people who are just being greedy. It's also people who have set up these systems like the superdelegates. It's unbelievable. The superdelegate system, I hope that we're going to have this professor on from the University of California Berkeley who is a conservative. I want to know how he got the job. Wrote this great article, I think it was in the New York Times today, that said the superdelegate system is going to tear the country apart, is going to tear the Democratic party apart because what's happening right now is these superdelegates, people who have 10,000 times the power that you have in your vote, are making back room deals right now. They are getting together with Barack Obama, they are getting together with Hillary Clinton and they are saying, okay, you give my town, you give my city, you give my district special whatever, a new water system when you get in to be President of the United States, you back me on that; I'll give you my superdelegate vote. Back room deals.

Well, how do we trust anything? And how did this superdelegate system even begin? Well, good news for you. We've got the history of the superdelegate system. Oh. Oh, this sounds like America. It's all red, white and blue, this story. You ready? Buckle up.

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.
