Glenn Beck: 19 ought 7

GLENN: Now what's happening? Last week I told you, was it last week or two weeks ago. I know I said it on television to a couple of guests and they laughed at me. I said, I think we're three years away from being a socialized country, I think it's right around the corner, and I think the first step is what happened with Bear Stearns. I think we are going to start nationalizing this debt. I was laughed at. That's okay.

Other big events from 1907 include Oklahoma being admitted as the 46th state, the first electric ball being dropped in Times Square and the 1907 Romanian Peasants Revolt - our favorite revolt of the year...

On Friday, Stu, did you get the e-mail I sent you? The 1907?

STU: I did get your 1907 e-mail. It was a wonderful addition to my weekend.

GLENN: It was, wasn't it? And you actually, you actually followed through. You actually read up on it.

STU: Yes. You asked me to read it on it and so I did.

GLENN: But I ask you to read a lot of things and so you --

STU: I read a lot of things that you ask. I don't read everything that you ask because I have a life but I read as many things as possible.

GLENN: I just never thought, on the scale of I've got a life, the crash of 1907 I didn't think that you would actually read.

STU: I don't know how that happened but it did.

GLENN: I know. It must have been -- is Lisa gone? So here's the thing. I wrote you in that e-mail, I said, there's a couple of really interesting things that happened in 1907. I said, the next thing would be to have the Fed grab power to be able to strengthen the Fed. So what is the news today? Today the news is the President is going to come out with a proposal that gives power of the Fed over our economy, they have -- and here's how it's -- their model is the Nordic banking system. Norway, Denmark. Stu, the Nordic banking system. What form of economic system does Norway have?

STU: I know they have the weather in common. It's pretty cold.

GLENN: It's cold. No, I mean their economic system.

STU: Oh.

GLENN: Socialism.

STU: Oh, yes, that's it.

GLENN: Socialism. That's weird. Oh, by the way, Hillary Clinton has come out today with the first real detail on how she's going to pay for her healthcare system and what it's going to cost you and me and just want to let you know, I'm trying to track this one down so we can get a little more, a little more detail on this one. But she has promised that it will only cost between 5 and 10% of your income to have her healthcare system. Now, 5% of Stu's income is different than 5% of Dan's income and Dan's is different than 5% of my income. Is that a Progressive scale? Is that a 5 to 10% additional tax on my income? That makes sense. It's the only way you can pay for it. But isn't that socialism? I'm sorry. I just have never heard of the premiums costing us between 5 and 10% of our income until now. That's a good thing that you are releasing that, Hillary Clinton.

So now the Fed will be given control over the banking system entirely. Now, here's why it is important for you to know this. Here's why you need to pay attention to this story and don't worry about, oh, is Hillary Clinton going to be dropping out. Who cares if Hillary Clinton is going to be dropping out. They are stealing our country under our noses and they are doing it all because -- well, they're protecting you. They want to make sure that you're okay. No, they're not. Follow the money.

The international banking system is taking control of our economy. They already have most of the control through the Fed. They are strengthening a system that most Americans think is part of the government. It is not. And here's how it unites all of us. You want to talk about uniting messages? Here's one. How about to the right. May I just say here is a nongovernmental agency that is taking control of the government, taking control of our economy, taking control of our entire economic system and they're being handed it by our politicians. Do you want any more control of our economy or do you believe in the free market system? That's to the right.

To the left. I thought you hated big business. I thought you hated special interests. I thought the whole idea was to get big business out of Washington. You're handing, the biggest business of all, international banking, you're handing economic sovereignty over to business, not the government but to business. Business will tell the President you can pick from these three options. You know what? That's how I ask my kids what they want to eat: Do you want a cheese sandwich or do you want macaroni and cheese. I'm sorry, but the American people aren't 3. We can choose for ourselves. We are smart enough to see other choices other than the two or three the Fed has given us. But it's all about to happen and it's all about to happen in the cover of night and there's nobody in Washington that's willing to stand against it. And it is surprisingly enough happening at just an interesting time, when no one can afford to be seen standing on the sidelines saying, "No, no, we shouldn't do anything. No, this is a solution that will work."

GLENN: So Stu, how was your weekend in '07?

STU: Oh, yeah, I mistakenly started studying 1607 just because it's one of my favorite '07s.

GLENN: It was 1907.

STU: Yeah, once I got there, then the weekend really turned around.

GLENN: When you started reading it, did you notice the similarities? You can look at this all the way down the line. But 1907, did you notice the similarities? Did they kind of jump out at you?

STU: Certainly do. And one of the worst parts about it is just how government reacts to it, which is creating more and more regulation. I mean, when I read a story that's, when Barney Frank is telling me that President Bush's plan is a great step in the right direction, I want to shoot myself.

GLENN: And you know what? All of these politicians will jump on the bandwagon, some of them because they actually believe in the Progressive ideals of nationalizing everything, especially our economy. But others, just because they've got to do something, the American people are demanding that you do something. I did something. Look. I nationalized our banking and monetary system.

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.
