GLENN: Let me go to Chris, who is the general manager and President. Are you the president of this company?

Chris: President now, yes. You promoted me.

Glenn: Well, that's and it's important, too.

Caller: Yeah, yeah.

Glenn: So, anyway, Chris, you had an interesting weekend. Stu will not tell me what happened to you this weekend.

Chris: Well, I think it's for good reason. I think we all needed to find this out together.

Glenn: Okay.

Chris: So, on Saturday night I decided to go to Madison square garden to view a concert by the Eagles. You know the Eagles?

Glenn: Yes, I do know the Eagles.

Chris: And so I'm sitting there minding my own business, watching the Eagles concert and they're playing all the hits, hotel California.

Glenn: Yes.

Chris: Boys of Summer.

Glenn: End of Innocence? Is it End of Innocence? What is the end of

Stu: End of the Innocence. Those are all Don Henley songs.

Glenn: Well, I know. I'm trying to think of Don Henley is the one that really drives me out of my mind.

Chris: Take it to the limit. Yeah. Good quality stuff.

Glenn: Good quality stuff. How were they?

Chris: They were actually very good and so then another song comes on, Dirty Laundry.

Glenn: Oh, boy.

Chris: Do you remember this song?

Glenn: Oh, I love this song. It's a Don Henley long. Can you play a little of Dirty Laundry? Yes.

Chris: And during Dirty Laundry, they have a full screen, you know, like a full kind of like whole stage screen behind them.

Glenn: I have a feeling I know where this is going and it's not going to turn out well for me?

Chris: Well, Glenn, they had a video montage that they had produced running behind them during the song and the highlight of that video montage was you.

Glenn: At the Eagles concert?

Chris: At the Eagles concert featured, I would say, prominently during the song was highlights from the Glenn Beck program.

Glenn: Can we sue them?

Chris: They have a lot of money. We were in good company because the other people that were in this video Monday damage were Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Jerry Springer.

Glenn: Jerry Springer?

Chris: Hang on. Rupert Murdock and you.

Glenn: Me. Well, that's the evil, right there! Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Rupert Murdock, Jerry Springer, and me.

Chris: Yeah.

Glenn: That's

Stu: The expanded axis of evil.

Glenn: That would be fantastic. I'll have to go to an Eagles concert. Now they can say it to my face!

Chris: What if you just stood on the stage while they were performing the song?

Glenn: You don't know what these guys are singing. Listen to me. You're going to die.

Stu: Congratulations, Glenn, you are now the example of evil journalism.

Glenn: I'm just giving dirty laundry.

Stu: Right.

Glenn: How many times have I said on the air, I can't take it, I can't take the dirty laundry

Stu: Right. Because we used to play this song all the time, kind of like as far as, like, giving an example of that. Shockingly enough, it's now turned around.

Chris: It was mostly real story clips, by the way.

Glenn: Like what did they show?

Chris: A lot of real story graphics about you shouting about oil.

Glenn: Oil, yeah! That would be the thing, too, because you know, you've got everybody in the audience going, yeah! Yeah. That oil thing, that's not a problem. Like, what was I could you hear me? Did you hear any reaction from the crowd, because we're not even known in New York.

Chris: No, no. I think if there was booing, it was Bill O'Reilly or for Murdock.

Glenn: Rupert Murdock?

Stu: Tour dates, the next date, Philadelphia, July 14th at the Wachovia Center.

Glenn: July 14th. Okay. So, that's Saturday. That's a week from Saturday. So

Chris: Of July.

Glenn: Oh, July. We need somebody that's a long wait. Of what are they what, are they talking the walkers to Philadelphia?

Stu: On their website it says the next date is July 14th.

Chris: I think they take a little time to roll in their money between concerts.

Glenn: How much were the tickets?

Chris: $189.

Glenn: What?

Chris: Yeah. So, yeah.

Glenn: Did you have good seats for $189?

Chris: I mean, I wasn't, like, front row or anything. I mean

Glenn: You guys are all too young. I remember when the Jacksons went on tour when Michael Jackson was really, really hot, and I think the tickets were $19 and people went crazy. People were, like, $19? This better be one damn good show! $19 now, you would be, like, am I inside? Does that just get me into the parking lot? Do I have to put my ear up to the glass door?

Chris: I kid you not. My ticket master service charge was $19.

Glenn: Unbelievable.

Chris: That was just on top of the ticket price.

Glenn: Now I feel like it's a deal to come to our show this week. How much are tickets to our show?

Chris: 35 to 45.

Glenn: That's an outrage. Worth every dime but

Stu: You should be 145, apparently. I mean, you could see Glenn Beck on stage live for $45 or you could see him on screen with the Eagles for 189.

Glenn: Why not see the real thing? I mean, I'm just saying. Chris, thanks, man.

Chris: Sure.

Glenn: All right. Bye.

Chris: Bye.

Glenn: I'm becoming that guy. I don't want to be that agree.

Stu: The evil guy? I mean, you have no choice.

Glenn: I'm the evil guy. I know. Do you know if I just had do you know if I just had the flip opinion, do you know how big we would be?

Stu: Yeah. Of oh, I'm seeing it now on YouTube here Glenn.

Glenn: They have it on YouTube?

Stu: It's on YouTube. Yes. There it is.

Glenn: Can't we sue them? Get Joe on the phone. Will you?

Stu: We can't sue them.

Glenn: Why not? They have deep pockets. Let's go for it. It's the American way. Joe is here. That's what he does.

Stu: Yeah. I don't think he would be comfortable with that analysis of what he does.

Glenn: Oh, he's a scumbag attorney and he knows it.

Stu: He's an attorney. I don't know that he would consider himself a scumbag.

Glenn: Oh, he's not personally a scumbag but every attorney, you've got to have a degree of scumbag if you. I mean, I think even Joe will say that.

Stu: Yeah, he probably would. Yes, do I see Jerry Springer clips and then it flashes to Bill O'Reilly. Oh and Elizabeth Hasselbeck has made it.

Glenn: Oh, she's such a dirt bag.

Stu: How evil is Elizabeth Hasselbeck? And then the Morning Show on FOX.

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.
