Glenn Beck: Clean politician?


Detroit mayor charged with perjury


Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was charged with perjury and other offenses Monday — and got a stern lecture about the importance of telling the truth — after a trove of raunchy text messages contradicted his sworn denials of an affair with his chief aide.

GLENN: Now, here's the thing on the Detroit mayor and I don't believe I can -- oh, yeah. Okay, we can go with Michael Bublé or Barry White. I'm cool with either. I think we need the Detroit mayor music. In fact, I think that this -- I think Barry White, I think -- you know how we have, like, Hail to the Chief? I think that whenever any politician walks into a room, you should just hear this.

(Barry White music playing.)

GLENN: Maybe we can just make this the first lady's theme as long as Hillary wins.

The way, I mean, the new New York governor, I mean, not the one that was making it with the hookers but the new one.

STU: I hasn't admitted yet. He's setting records.

GLENN: No, no, the old mayor, the old governor was the one with the hookers.

STU: Right. I'm saying the new one I assume at some point will admit to being with hookers because he can't go through a three-hour period without admitting something new. This guy is on an admission tour.

GLENN: I hate blind people so --

STU: I hate this show today.

GLENN: Why do you hate blind people? Do you notice that, Dan?

DAN: Yeah.

GLENN: He just hates blind people. He doesn't know it's bad what he's doing. He can't read the newspaper. He's blind.

DAN: Blind people need hookers, too.

STU: I haven't made any comment about blind people at all. I'm just commenting about --

GLENN: That's what I'm hearing. Oh, it's just a coincidence that the new governor happens to be blind and you happen to be on this attack mode, just this hatred.

DAN: He's only been in like a week.

GLENN: I don't even know him. I do know that he's had multiple affairs on his wife and --

STU: This is what I'm talking about.

GLENN: She has -- quiet. I'm talking about the facts. Stop with your hate mongering.

So he's had plenty of, you know, affairs on his wife, but hey, to be fair his wife was cheating on him, too.

DAN: It's equality America.

GLENN: Why even come home. You know what I mean? Why even -- "Look, you're cheating on me, I'm cheating on you. Was it good? Because mine was rockin'." I mean, you guys shouldn't get pissed. "Look, we're just splitting the bills here. That's all we're doing. You know what I'm saying?" .

So anyway, apparently the splitting of the bill thing is good because he also announced yesterday that he's done cocaine, which makes for an even more rocking evening, huh? Of course, I wouldn't know that, but let me check with Swinger Stu. How many drugs were involved after the Bublé concert?

STU: No drugs were involved. Well, --

GLENN: See?

STU: Alcohol. I did have a couple of beverages.

GLENN: Loosen things up a bit?

STU: It was a casino.

GLENN: Set the mood? You don't drink, my friend.

STU: I occasionally have a drink.

GLENN: I think I've seen you drink one beer.

STU: I mean, I'm not a big drinker.

GLENN: What else did you have at the casino? Was it hard liquor or was it beer?

STU: It was a beer. I believe I had two or three.

GLENN: Two or three beers.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Hmmm.

STU: And I'm a gigantic person. That doesn't do too much.

GLENN: That doesn't drink and is a vegetarian, which I've always questioned everything about you since I've heard that you were --

STU: Is this another baseless accusation coming up? Is that what it is?

GLENN: No, vegetarian fact. You can't trust vegetarians. Anything that won't knock the horns off an animal and eat it because they can, don't trust them.

STU: This is in-depth philosophy here.

GLENN: I'm just sayin'.

DAN: Sounds pretty rock solid to me, Glenn.

GLENN: Thank you very much, Dan. More Barry White music.

STU: Are you going for race?

GLENN: Yeah, race usually comes with the promotion. The reason why we're playing Barry White is because I think all politicians should have this as their theme. And then the Detroit mayor is in his own little scandal here. He is the son of the representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick. I don't know -- because it's not in quotation marks in The Wall Street Journal, "Cheeks." I'm not sure if you are a U.S. representative that you should have a, you know, a handle of Cheeks. And if it's not, if it's like your maiden name, you should probably just drop it.

STU: There's Maurice Cheeks, the basketball player. There's been people named Cheeks before. Maybe it's a middle name.

GLENN: U.S. representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick.

STU: Is it a middle name?

GLENN: May be her maiden name. I don't know. There's no hyphen. Cheeks, this is another reason why stop with the maiden name, keeping the -- stop it right now. One of you decide.

STU: A lot confuses you in the world.

GLENN: Nope, not a lot confuses me. I'm not confused on that one at all. Take his name or you, dope, take hers. Stop with the maiden name thing.

STU: It's a lot of words there for you, a lot of letters you have to pronounce. Gets real difficult.

GLENN: Somebody seems like they're confused. Not me.

STU: I'm just trying to help, Glenn. A lot of sill bells in there.

GLENN: I'm making perfect sense. I'm making sense. You know what it is.

STU: He's flustered.

GLENN: It's the confusion of, do I like guys, do I like women, do I like them both at the same time, that's what it is.

STU: So when you say you're confused, you're going to point out me as being confused as the example? That makes no sense at all.

GLENN: I'm not confused at all.

STU: You are confused.

GLENN: So anyway, Cheeks has a son. He becomes the mayor of Detroit. Now, even if Cheeks is your middle name or your maiden name and you've decided I'm proud of that, I think once your son starts doing the things that he was doing, you need to lose Cheeks. Maybe it's just me. So I need a little more Barry White, please. Thank you.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: This is the same one. Or is it like Air Supply? They just all sound alike.

DAN: I thought we decided this is the theme.

GLENN: This is the theme, good. So then what happens is police are investigating something, I don't know, and he tries to get them to stop investigating and so they said, well, but wait a minute, hang on just a second. Why would we stop investigating? And he fires them. So the police sue. And while he's testifying, they say, are you having an affair with so-and-so? And he says no. So-and-so gets on the stand, she says no. Well, unfortunately for the mayor they have some text messages. I love this one. "Can I come up and just lay down in your room until you get back?" Puhleez. Look, let's just cuddle. We won't do anything." I mean, what kind of 12-year-old question is that? "Let's just take our clothes off and cuddle. Nothing will happen. Let me just hold you. I'm just really sleepy. Could I just stay in your room until you get back? . I'm madly in love with you" is one text message. I've been feeling this way about you a long time. In case you haven't noticed, I'm madly in love with you, too, relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love."

So they find these text messages. They say, hello, perjury. "But I was just lying about sex. I learned this in the Nineties. You can lie about personal matters as long as it's sex and no big deal, right?" No, unless you're a Clinton. And then we change the rules, for everything. But here's the best part of the story. Do you know what the police were investigating that he tried to shut them down on? Any idea? Dan, any ideas? Do you know what that is? It's just kind of missed in the media.

DAN: No idea. I just knew about the 14,000 texts.

GLENN: Stu, you heard about the text messages.

STU: Sure did.

GLENN: Do you know what they were investigating?

STU: I don't know what they were investigating.

GLENN: Swingers. No, what they were investigating was a murder, alleged murder of a stripper. The stripper was actually, had told her 14-year-old son that she had been at a stripper's party at the mayor's mansion in Detroit.

STU: I know I would tell my son if that if I were --

GLENN: I know. Well, you know, 14-year-old boys like strippers, I guess. So apparently she was murdered and she said that she had been assaulted by the mayor's wife when the mayor showed up unexpectedly -- I'm sorry, the mayor's wife showed up unexpectedly and didn't know that he was having strippers over to the house and she abused this stripper. So they were investigating the murder. And that's what he shut them down on. By the way, the DA said the mayor wasn't involved and all but now in light of all of the other things, they think they might take a second look at the stripper's death. Just saying. Might be a good idea.


 

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

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.
