Bill O’Reilly: How Progressives are DESTROYING YOUR FREEDOM

The Progressive Left knows the midterm elections could HALT their current progress, Bill O’Reilly tells Glenn, which is why they’re doing everything they can to push voters toward Democrat candidates…even if American cities become further destroyed as a result. It’s all part of a ‘MASSIVE TAKEOVER,’ O’Reilly explains, to diminish YOUR personal freedoms. In this clip, O’Reilly gives several examples of recent attempts to do just that. Plus, he and Glenn discuss the decision our citizenry must make in the coming months and whether the far-left can be stopped before we no longer recognize our nation…

GLENN: Jeez, where do want to start the biggest story of the week?

BILL: Well, you know, I wanted to start in a more generalized capacity. Because you have the midterm elections, which could put an end to some of the madness. And so the progressive left, which has made unbelievable strides under Biden knows that. And now they're working in conjunction with the media, to put out these phony polls, that show the Biden administration surging in popularity, and the Democrats, and the generic ballot, beating the Republicans, and all of this.

This is not true. But it could have an effect, if it's not countered by people like you and me.

Because we live in a country, where half of the voters don't know anything. And I'm not being supercilious, Beck. Arrogant. I'm not. It's just a fact. They live this a world of their own. A world they create out of cyberspace. They don't pay attention.

GLENN: Correct.

BILL: They don't understand the big picture. They don't understand that gas costs more, and so does bread. But that's all they understand. And so they're subject to unbelievable propaganda.

But if Americans and the Republican party start to really up the urgency of this.

GLENN: Well, part of this is because of Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell has been hurt to say that all we're going to do is just keep pointing out how bad the Democrats are. That way, we won't lose anybody. Are you out of your mind?

BILL: I don't know what he says. They don't care what he says.

There isn't a central force in the Republican Party right now, at all.

And really, there isn't in the Democrat Party either. Because Biden is not in control of this situation. But the Democratic machines allied with the media. Out of K Street out of Washington. Where these political action committees operate. They are well-organized. And the Republicans aren't. So there isn't this urgency of message.

I mean, when you get a poll in Los Angeles. It shows that a progressive leftist is well out in front of a guy who says, look, I'm going to clean up the town.

And that poll is probably accurate. And you say to the people of Los Angeles. Okay. If this is what you want. This is what you've got. You better get a gate. And you better get a gun or security guards. Because this is totally out of control. And you're voting for it. You're voting for more of it.

That's the big story. There comes a point in history. And you know that I'm the history guy.

Where a citizenry has to make a decision. A collective decision.

GLENN: Correct.

BILL: To you and me, it's so clear, right? It's so clear. There isn't two sides of the story, like there might have been with Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. There aren't two sides to the story. This is a massive government takeover of everything in this country, to diminish your personal freedom. That's what this loan thing is all about.

GLENN: I know.

BILL: But if the government wants to run education, Pre-K to post graduate. They want to run it all. So they can indoctrinate, just like you did with the Tuttle Twins said. Thus, students from cradle to when they're out.

GLENN: Yeah.

BILL: This is a massive step towards that. We will pay, if you go along with us, if you agree with us. We'll pay for a lot of your education. They want to run personal protection. Second Amendment.

They don't want you to have personal protection. This is the federal government. But most of all, they want to run the economy, to tell you, the American citizen, what you can and can't have.

This is all tied in, to the progressive vision. I'm not a conspiracy guy. I mock most conspiracies. But you can see, how this has happened in the past, in other countries. And how it is now being attempted in the United States.

GLENN: Yeah. I -- I have never really liked. This is the most important election in our lifetime. Because I've heard it my whole life.

This could be the last midterm election, under the United States of America as we know it.

The Constitution by 2024, could be gone, if there's no speed bump in Congress. There's -- we've got to stop this.

The -- the -- the executive orders, Bill.

I've -- I've always been against executive orders, when they are just -- they're -- I mean, we're writing -- we're not legislating anything anymore. And I don't like executive orders.

Now, I think executive orders have to be stopped. They just have to be stopped.

Because we are in a dictatorship. When a president can do what he's trying to do, that's a dictatorship.

BILL: But you're not going to stop it, unless you have a Republican president elected in 2024. There's no mechanisms to stop it. So the Founding Fathers, they wanted a certain type of government, but they realized, all of them, in their personal letters and papers. That this won't happen.

GLENN: Okay. So let me go. Talking about personal papers, the redacted version of the Mar-a-Lago search warrant affidavit, is supposed to be made public. Now, redacted. Are we just going to see a bunch of pages with nothing, but black bars over it?

BILL: Yeah. I mean, look, what you can expect to see, is a generalized rationale towards the search. You're not going to get any names. You're not going to know what the person -- the grand jury that Trump took. You're not going to know any of that. I don't even think you'll get specific documents that they're looking for.

GLENN: There's nothing here. That's a nothing burger.

BILL: Right. There's nothing in this whole thing for me.

GLENN: I know.

BILL: All right. This is just -- you know, it's another example of a government trying to destroy an individual, in this case Donald Trump.

So the government -- the Biden administration is trying to destroy the man, because they know, that he still has a massive amount of support.

And the Republicans who hate him, are siding with the Democrats. Which is really, look, I know Trump better than anyone knows him. And I understand the eccentricities of the man. That he did some damage to himself and the country, by being immature and undisciplined. And I told it to him, more times than you can even imagine. But he governs the country well.

GLENN: He did.

BILL: And that is not in dispute, if you look at the border, if you look at the economic deals that he made.

GLENN: But, again, it can't be done by executive order.

It has -- I mean, we wouldn't be having this problem if we had Republicans with a spine.

Let me switch topics here. The FBI is losing credibility so rapidly. We have the FBI, not only with the Mar-a-Lago thing.

But we also have the FBI agents, whistle blowers at the highest levels, according to Grassley. Saying that the FBI was ordered not to talk about Hunter Biden. It was -- they were ordered not to look at any of that.

The -- Mark Zuckerberg was on Joe Rogan. And he talked about how the FBI came to him. And said, you know, there's going to be some Russian disinformation coming out. You know, don't run with it. So we have that.

Plus, we also have the story, that the people who stole Ashley Biden's diary, which I'm all for them being arrested. They stole her diary. But this has really damning information in that -- in that diary.

They arrested those two people. But nobody is looking into the Hunter Biden thing. No arrests have been made on this, at all.

What is the game plan of the FBI?

BILL: Okay. It doesn't really matter, Beck suspect preponderance the House becomes Republican in November. Okay. When that happens, and they're all sworn in, in January. The first thing the Republicans will do, is hold hearings on the FBI.

And then these whistle-blowers will come in, and they'll say, what they are going to say under oath. And that will be the end of the FBI's reign of power. Because it will then be destroyed and charges -- actual charges might come from that. That's number one.

GLENN: But I have to tell you Bill. I'm concerned. I think we're a country. The United States of blackmail. They have been monitoring these congressmen and everything else. And, you know, these congressmen are not the best moral character. Are you sure that of the -- the intelligence agencies, and, you know, look at the power that the FBI had under Hoover.

BILL: Yeah. I mean, I know it, because I wrote Killing the Mob. And everything is in there. But different age now. So that's the FBI. But here's the worst FBI.

You ready for the worst, Glenn?

GLENN: Sure.

BILL: They didn't even look into, who leaked the Alito memo.

GLENN: Do you know that for sure?

BILL: Yeah. Because if they had, they wouldn't have made an arrest. There are only maybe 20 people.

GLENN: I know. I know.

BILL: And probably out of those 20, over maybe six or seven.

GLENN: But doesn't that -- doesn't that also fall to John Roberts. Because they do have their open at least security, that can hire out, to investigate.

BILL: I guess. I don't know. But I do know, that if Trump were president. And this happened, you would have an arrest already.

GLENN: Yeah. You would have.

BILL: Okay? So when you see something that simple, all right? That blatant, that you have a person inside the Supreme Court. Not a lot of them. All right?

And they can't find that person who leaked that memo in a historical fashion. Which makes us a banana republic, if we can't even keep secrets at the Supreme Court level. We're a banana republic. And so, it is a terrible thing.

But there is a resolution to this, if the House goes Republican.

GLENN: All right. Back with more. Bill O'Reilly here in just a second. If you're a sensible person, which I know you are. You know you're never a single disaster away from losing the things that are precious to you. You wake up in the middle of the night to a house fire. What do you won't be?

I mean, this just happened to a neighbor of mine. They had a house fire. Lost everything. They had sprinklers in the House. They thought that would save them.

GLENN: Well, it stopped the fire. But it destroyed everything in the house, including the house. You know, taking pictures out, that are just now garbage. Once things are destroyed, they are gone. Now, you don't have to have a fire in your house. Just time destroys many of our photos. If you have videotapes or anything like that. Man, they're going to be gone soon. Those tapes are meant to last ten years. Everything from my childhood, to my kid's childhood, is on films and tapes and photographs. Preserve them now.

Bill O'Reilly, a guy who knows how inflation works. Too many dollars chasing too few goods.

So the economy is overheating. We have to slow down the economy. How do we do that?

You make sure that people don't have the money to spend. What Joe Biden did with this -- with this bailout of people, student loans, is absolutely incredible.

Bill, talk to me a little bit about the fallout of this. What you think -- if it's going to stand.

Nancy Pelosi flip-flopping, and what it's going to do with the economy.

BILL: Well, I can't predict the economy. Nobody can. We still have the big consumer engineer in this country. People are out, as in Yankee Stadium for the Mets game on Tuesday.

Fifty thousand people there, spending money and buying, you know, 8-dollar hot dogs. So I can't predict the economy.

The loan forgiveness thing will be obliterated if there is a Republican president in 2024. That will go. It's a ten-year expenditure. I estimate the expenditure, if the Democrats continue to hold power, to be at about 700 billion. The country cannot afford, obviously to keep running up this kind of debt. Biden is not going to stop. The only reason they do this, is to buy votes anyway. Most of the money is wasted.

It's so complex. People don't understand who is going to get the loan. How it's tied into the Department of Labor. I mean, it's just unbelievable.

GLENN: So wait. Wait. Wait.

You -- you say that this is going to -- has to wait until the next president. Do you not think this is going to go to the Supreme Court?

BILL: No. It won't get there. Biden will veto any attempt to rein it in. But, you know, it's only really two years away now. This is how fast time goes. I want to tell your audience, Beck. Because I know you have a very smart and big audience around the world. A couple things, I did an interview with Newt Gingrich this week on BillO'Reilly.com. Everybody should watch that interview.

The way I interviewed these people, is totally different than anybody else. And, you know, that.

GLENN: Yeah.

BILL: And I got a lot of micro information, about really what's happening. Because Gingrich, he went through this. Right.

The whole thing, in the contract for America, and all that. So if you really want an astute analysis, and get away from the propaganda. You see on television, and paper news, watch that. The second thing is that people are getting hopeless now.

And they shouldn't. So, yes.

There are states like mine, New York, and California, and Illinois. Almost irredeemable at this point.

But also states like Florida and Texas, and other places, that are wise enough. That are saying, you know, we want our freedom. We want to hold on to our personal freedom.

I mean, people in California and New York. I'm shocked. They don't seem to respect their own personal freedom.

They want a government to tell them, what they can and can't do. Every single facet of life. I've never seen anything like this, ever. Why do you want to sacrifice your personal autonomy to an incompetent boob like Joe Biden? Why would you ever want to give Nancy Pelosi power over you, or Donald Trump, or any other politician?

You know, you've got to fight for your independence. And we're not there. Because that message is being suppressed.

STU: Well, that message also, you know, Newt Gingrich had the contract for America.

I had been ringing the bell in Congress and the Senate for a year. Contract for America. How about a new one? And they won't do it.

BILL: It's not going to happen -- it's not going to happen this time around, there's no central leadership, like Gingrich brought to the House.

STU: Yeah. Well, then Kevin McCarthy should definitely not be the guy in the House. He should definitely not -- if he can't get that done, then he should definitely not be the leader of the House. Period.

BILL: Whatever. I don't follow that very closely, because I don't -- I know the games that are played.

STU: Yeah. Yeah.

I want the American people to wise up, to see what is happening, in a non-paranoia way.

And discuss it with their children, their families, their friends, and say, you know, this is bad. This is way worse than you think it is.

When the powerful corporate media allies with the progressive left, as it has, there's trouble.

GLENN: Bill O'Reilly from BillO'Reilly.com.

Will Iran’s Attack on Israel Lead to NUCLEAR WAR?
RADIO

Will Iran’s Attack on Israel Lead to NUCLEAR WAR?

Over the weekend, Iran launched over 300 missiles and drones at Israel. But in a response that could only be seen as “miraculous,” Israel’s defense systems neutralized 99% of the attack. However, the world might have been a very different place if even a third of those missiles had hit their targets. Former Department of Defense intelligence analyst Jason Buttrill joins Glenn to lay out just how close we were to global nuclear war. So, is there still a chance that this will lead to World War III? Will Israel retaliate? And can Iran even respond a second time? The guys break it all down.

GLENN: So yesterday, Israel, Iran attacked over the weekend, and it was a significant attack.

JASON: Yeah. You know that scene in war games, where it shows all these missiles. That's what it looked like. It was insane. 350 missiles. Missiles drones. All that. It was --

GLENN: So significant attack. They are launching the missiles, some of them into space. Did we get the video in yet?

JASON: Should.

GLENN: Of the -- what do they call this? The C Dome? I think.

They have the Iron Dome.

JASON: Oh, it's it is Arrow System.

GLENN: Watch this. Watch this. If you're watching TheBlaze. There.

STU: Fireworks.

GLENN: That is -- I feel like a million voices were all screaming and then suddenly silenced. That is a hit in space.

JASON: Exoatmospheric.

GLENN: So that's the Arrow system, going up out of the atmosphere into space, and hitting a missile as it's starting to come back in.

I mean, it's one of the most incredible things I've ever seen. And I think this is the first time it was ever captured on film, right?

JASON: This was the third interception in space. The others were last year, when the Houthis launched Iranian missiles against Israel. So just the weapon technology involved this weekend is nuts.

GLENN: So 99 percent, 99 percent of these missiles will tell you what was going on, but the biggest thing you need to know is, we could have very easily been in World War III today.

I think because of the Arrow missile system, which is a joint project between us and Israel, that really, truly saved the day. If these 300 missiles would have struck the ground, it would have been world war.

Absolutely world war.

JASON: Oh, if a quarter of these missiles actually got through. We're having a completely different conversation right now.

GLENN: Please tell us we have the Arrow system here.

JASON: I don't think we do. It was the second half of the development for that. So it's also an American.

We have dibs on it. We have our own system that is kind of pre-deployed on naval ships all around the world, so we do have the same capability.

GLENN: That's the Aegis System, right? That's not shooting things from in space.

JASON: It is. I don't remember. There's two parts of it. I don't remember the second part of it.

GLENN: The Aegis System on ships, is just a buttload of bullets, coming out.

I mean, it's just -- it's just round after round. Big butt of bullets.

JASON: Yeah. It's called a BLB. Buttload of bullets. Military technology.

GLENN: Yeah.

JASON: It was more than just the Arrow system. To try to get the scope of this. You have to look at the graphic of this. Submitted. Of where all this ordinance was coming from.

Yemen. Iraq. Iran. Lebanon. All converging on multiple different fronts. All down on Israel.

They have a three-pronged system. The further one out, is the arrow two and three system.

GLENN: That's the one shooting in space.

JASON: That's the one that can reach up and touch you in space. The second one is David's Sling. That shoots lower -- yeah, I know. They have such cooler names than ours does. That shoots like cruise missiles or like missiles that are flying low to the ground. And then you have the Iron Dome, which everyone is talking about.

All of those things were firing all at once, going on over the weekend. But you also had Israeli planes, going up and firing on cruise missiles, way the heck out there. Then you had US planes, and planes from the UK.

All of this converging in the skies, over the weekend.

GLENN: So is it that Iran's missiles suck so much?

Or is this as amazing as it sounds?

JASON: It's as amazing as it sounds.

So these are current generation weaponry that we're talking about. Iran is exporting some of this weaponry, giving it to Russia, to Russia can attack Ukraine. This is amazing.

99 percent success rate, does not happen. It doesn't. So, I mean, granted there was great technology here.

But I think there's some God work going on as well.

GLENN: I was going to say, isn't there Scriptures, when the whole world goes to attack.

That God just protects. It's like a dome over Israel.

JASON: Yeah. Yeah. It was so effective, that I think that Iran probably is rethinking some of their first strike strategy against Israel.

Now, you know they've all gamed this out.

And I'm sure, part of this attack, that goes into their plans. Like, they know that they want to take out Israel. If they had to, what do they need?

Well, they threw everything, but the ayatollah's kitchen sink at Israel oar the weekend.

GLENN: I think I was flying. I think I saw does that hit the ground.

JASON: They probably used that too.

GLENN: With the disposal, which is weird.

So if you would have had one of these nuclear-tipped. It -- I mean, so you -- so all of that work for a nuclear weapon. You ain't going to deposit it through a missile. Right?

Wouldn't that be the message that Iran would get?

JASON: You're not now.

Yeah. I don't. This sent Iraq back, I'm sure. Probably several years, as far as whatever their eventually goal is.

And that right there, is the problem. Because we know, they won't stop. So when you're saying, you know, when everyone is like pleading with her.

When Biden was pleading with Bibi over the weekend, to don't retaliate. On the one hand, I'm like, yeah.

Because I don't want to see the Middle East completely change overnight.

GLENN: It's not just that.

If they retaliate, Iran has the ability to set Europe and America on fire in the streets. And that's only a matter of time, before it happens. But I don't know.

I would like to delay it as long as possible.

JASON: But if you're Israel. Look at the overall picture here.

They're surrounding them. Look at the graphic of where all the missiles are coming from.

Israel is surrounded.

The strategy now. International community. Israel just keep your walls.

Just keep your walls up, and you will be safe. When has that ever worked, in military history?

Never. Constantinople. Greece. Troy. Pick your time. Your walls are an illusion. They will keep you safe, for a limited amount of time. But the eventual goal of an invading army is to topple those walls. That's Iran's plan.

So how long do you delay? And if they decide -- and Iran says, they're not delaying anymore. That is when the entire region changes forever.

They've been playing this little proxy war for 40 years.

GLENN: This is the first time, that they have, not used a proxy. Right? No proxy, it was Iran.

And so I saw -- and honestly, I thank God, that we are pausing at least. You know what I mean?

Because this will escalate into a world war that fast.

Just, everything in me says, once the Middle East is set on fire, Russia and Ukraine, and everything else, it's just going to be you. Just dominoes.

Because if the Middle East is on fire, and Iran is losing, which they would.

They're just setting all of our countries on fire, you know, internally.

So I was glad to see the pause. However, I was a little disturbed, that the news came out from the White House. Because that should have come out from the Prime Minister's office in Israel. But instead, Joe Biden calls Bibi Netanyahu. Who apparently, the war ministry, all voted to retaliate. And then Joe Biden called and said, hey. We won't support you.

Tonight -- don't do it. Don't retaliate. That's what the White House is saying, and so Bibi changed his mind. Well, gee. Thanks for backing me into a corner. I mean, it might be a corner I like to be in. But that's not the way you deal with an ally, is it?

JASON: No. How they're dealing with this all across-the-board, is what you're not supposed to do. This attack happened because of the Biden administration's overall foreign policy in the Middle East.

GLENN: You think?

JASON: When you refuse to stand up to their proxy, Hamas. When you coddle them as they have, things like this happen. When you give billions of dollars back to Iran. When you try to go back into the JCPO, nuclear agreement with them. When you're doing everything possible, to say, let's play nice. Let's play nice. When you have refused to stand up to a bully, this is the type of crap that happens. And I'm not saying that we go off and militarily attack them. There is a formula for dealing with this.

It was actually working. The Abraham Accords are happening. When you abandon them. This is the kind of crap that happens.

GLENN: But when you're having the possibility of Trump getting back in, and quelling all of this. I just want to make it to, you know, January, in case he wins. If he doesn't win, I mean, we're just going to keep seeing more and more of this.

You're right. It is our policies. We are weak. We don't command any respect. And honestly, we're on the other side.

We're giving money to Iran. So our tax dollars went to Iran. And to Israel.

So you could feel good on April 15th today. You paid for both sides of this.

STU: What do you guys make of the really strange way this all unfolded.

It was like, hey! Drones are going to be there in a few hours. They're all coming.

GLENN: I think that is. That is -- and correct me if I'm wrong, Jason.

You would know more than I would.

I think that was the signal from Iran.

Hey. We're going to do this.

STU: Right.

GLENN: We're going to -- because otherwise, you surprise.

Hey, surprise!

But they let Israel.

STU: Israel did.

GLENN: Yeah. They telegraphed it. Let Israel know.

Prepare your people for this. And then we will stop.

And that gives -- that gives the Israelis an opportunity to say, okay.

Well, we stopped you. Don't do it again.

STU: Because their statement right after. Hey. By the way, that's the end of this.

Wait until you know. That's what we're doing.

The matter is settled.

JASON: Concluded.

STU: Yeah. They're trying to say to our people. Hey. We did something.

To Israel, hey, we told you it was coming. You blocked it all.

Let's just call it a draw. Now, Israel, of course, gets the win here. They wiped out important military officials, and people they really wanted to target in Syria.

And they stopped the entire attack from Iran.

I mean, it's a massive escalation. No way of denying that. Maybe there's a chance for us to avoid a real inflammation of our entire region.

GLENN: I think we did. I think we did.

STU: You think it's over? Netanyahu said, it's going back for years.

GLENN: It's going to go back to terror now. The missiles are over.

STU: I mean, Netanyahu said, he wants to basically go after Iran directly.

He believes they're doing all this --

GLENN: Wow, they are the head of the state. They are the problem.

STU: It's true.

JASON: It's all up to Israel's response now.

GLENN: So you don't believe. So you don't believe, they are finished. Because -- according to the White House. They're done.

JASON: I think that's what Israel is juggling right now. Because it was heavily telegraphed. Iran told Turkey they were going to do this attack. And Turkey transmitted it to us.

GLENN: Let me take a quick break. And then I want to come back. Because I want to lack at this from the Israeli point of view.

I'm in addition they're stopped.

But if I'm an Israeli, I'm like, go get them now.

They've just blown everything that they have most likely. Let's go get them, while they're weak. We can overthrow them.

Why Megyn Kelly is “DISGUSTED” by New York’s Criminal Trump Trial

The hush money trial of Donald Trump has begun — the first criminal trial ever against a former president — and Megyn Kelly is “disgusted” by it. “The United States of America DOESN’T do this,” she tells Glenn. But will Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg actually throw Trump in jail? Megyn explains why she doesn’t believe so, but she also debates whether a criminal conviction will help or hurt Trump in the November election.

GLENN: Megyn Kelly, welcome to the program.

How are you, Megyn?

MEGYN: Hi, Glenn. Good to see you. How are you doing?

GLENN: What's going to happen this time? Are they going to get him this time?

MEGYN: They're going to get him. And I don't know about you. You can kind of laugh at it. And kind of absurd. But now that it's -- I mean, the first criminal trial of Donald Trump has just begun. They're in the courtroom.

The witnesses will be called eventually, after they pick the jury.

And they're going to try to put this guy behind bars, potentially.

They're 100 percent taking their best shot at stopping him from winning this race. And it really, for me as a lawyer, it's been very sobering morning.

I'm just disgusted.

I cannot believe we're doing this.

I -- it's like -- it's like Princess Diana behaving like a straight whore. That's what we're doing. The United States doesn't do this. And because we're in the hands of this scummy prosecutor. Multiple. It's not just Alvin Bragg, but he's the lead on this.

We've gone down this road, pretending a payment to a porn star, who is threatening to expose an affair, is a crime that warrants 34 counts. And they're going to make it as sleazy as humanly possible.

We're going to hear about David Pecker, who ran the national inquirer, owned AMI Media, and to bury negative stories on Trump and to inflate stories on Hillary.

Great. I can't wait to hear about Fusion GPS. Was Trump the only one trying to get dirt printed on his opponent.

That's what this jury will be left with. He worked with dirty magazines to get Hillary painted as fact. And unwell.

And without talking about how his campaign was spied on. She's been trying to get him impeached or thrown in jail, along with President Obama, for years.

Politics is disgusting and dirty and underhanded. And we wish it weren't so.

But guess what, it's so. Welcome to America.

And never before, have we put somebody on trial. Antics around it. Or a man on trial, for not screaming from the rooftops, I paid off a porn star, so she didn't humiliate me with my wife.

We're embarrassing ourselves with this trial. I feel appropriately disgusted.

GLENN: What is the difference between this trial, and the trial that didn't happen, because I only lied about sex? You know, to save my marriage, to make sure I didn't humiliate my wife. That's basically why Donald Trump perjured himself. Or not Donald Trump. Bill Clinton perjured himself, and nothing happened there. Everybody just walked away. What's the difference between these two?

MEGYN: One is a Democrat. One is a Republican.

GLENN: That's what I thought. That's what I thought.

MEGYN: Yeah, if you're a Democrat, you can lie. Ask Fani Wilis, ask Nathan Wade. Fine. You can lie on the stand, under oath. Like Bill Clinton did.

It's okay. It's just -- oh, wait. That's what Trump was doing too, allegedly.

That's -- wait. He was lying to cover up an affair. In only one lane does it become a felony.
And just not to get too deep in the weeds, Glenn, but let's not forget what really is happening here is a misdemeanor bookkeeping snafu or error or just statement, that the statute of limitations has run on. They reinvigorated a dead claim, by saying, well, it was made to cover up an underlying felony, which was a campaign finance violation.

You made $130,000 donation, quote, unquote, to your own campaign by paying off Stormy Daniels to win an election.

Well, guess what, that's not a campaign finance violation. The only way you get the kind of campaign finance violation, is get the payment, who could only have been made for one purpose, and that is to help your campaign.

Well, guess what, again, hush payments have been made by men to shut women up since the dawn of time. It doesn't have to be to save one's campaign. And that is the relative legal test expect Alvin brag should know. It's the reason the feds were not interested in pursuing this claim against Donald Trump.

GLENN: Correct. So is it just a corrupt judge that is making all the -- because the judge should look at that and said, no. You can't do this?

MEGYN: Yeah. Yes. I mean, it's not just. Because we have Mr. Bragg. But, yeah. The judge say serious problem.

A nonpartisan judge would you have thrown this out in the papers. Pretty easily.

And I do believe there's a very good chance, this will ultimately, no matter what happens with the area. Get thrown out on appeal.

Like most of the prosecutions against Trump. Not the obstruction case. But the J6 case could get thrown out soon, actually. The Supreme Court throws out the obstruction charges. Other cases involve J6 defendants not Trump.

If the Supreme Court does anything on presidential immunity. And then if he loses that J6 case. If there's a trial. I think it can get thrown out on appeal.

But he has to go through the humiliation.

We -- we -- America have to go through the humiliation of this criminal trial first.

We just saw our former president dragged into a criminal courtroom today.

And in typical Trumpian fashion, he said, I'm proud to be here. I'm very proud to be here.

That's smart. Trump is smart. He always does it. Positive spin for anything that happens to him. Let's be honest. This is not a proud moment.

Not for him. Not for us.

GLENN: Not for his family.

MEGYN: I'm ashamed of us for doing this.

GLENN: So what do you say about Donald Trump, this is, you know, something that, you know, we would be disgusted by, if it was something that was happening on the other side? Bill Clinton comes to mind. That we as conservatives, would say, this guy, he shouldn't be doing this as president. But in the Clinton case, it was illegal. He perjured himself. But there -- there really isn't anything illegal here. And if it was, it's past the statute of limitations.

MEGYN: There's a difference between those two cases. Let me tell you, Glenn. No one is allowed to lie under oath. It's a felony. It's a felony. It's perjury.

GLENN: Correct.

MEGYN: And a lawyer really isn't allowed to lie under oath. You have additional duties of candor to a court, before they admit you into the bar. You swear not to do things like that. So there are additional obligations on a lawyer, which Clinton was.

And on top of that, there are additional obligations as president. He violated them all. He committed a felony. Donald Trump made a bookkeeping misstatement. That's what he did. And for that, he's being hauled into court.

There's just no comparison between the legal scent -- and, look, I don't have any doubt, Trump will be convicted.

And to be honest, I don't have any doubt that Trump did this. I'm not -- I don't really doubt, that Trump didn't write down the hush money, to Stormy Daniels. Porn star. Who is threatening to go to my wife and the media about an affair, I may have had. He probably did do that.

GLENN: Right. Well, there was another one he paid off, that it wasn't true.

So I mean we don't know. Right?

MEGYN: The doorman? Yeah. Well, that's another piece of the AMI media piece of this case, which hasn't gotten much attention. But it's going to, when I think you hear, David Pecker will take the stand. The guy who ran, and I owned it. He will take a stand. And say, yeah. We caught and killed stories, including from this Karen McDougal who was the 1998 playmate of the year, who allegedly had an affair with Trump.

And also took a payout from AMI, to write health columns, instead of take the story to a publication that would run with it. This is what the allegation is, that if you're a friend with Pecker, like Trump was, you could get this kind of thing done for you.

And that's what he was doing for Trump. And we will have with this testimony, to that effect. And that's -- okay.

Is anyone shocked, that Trump didn't want all his affairs come out? I don't care. I'm sure he has had affairs. I'm sure, you know what, I'm sure Obama did too. The sainted Obama. And I'm sure Bill Clinton did. And the only reason the Clinton thing became a story is because Linda Tripp cited it -- and go public with the story. Neither pair of the lovers wanted that public.

Linda Tripp brought it public, and then Bill Clinton, rather than being a man and owning up to it, lied under oath. We're back to that problem.

But this is just -- we shouldn't be knowing about any of this. We shouldn't be humiliating ourselves, and getting neck deep into the gory details of it. But the Democrats are going to be awash in -- in seedy Trump affair details, for the next six weeks.

And it's anything, but accidental.

GLENN: How do you think this plays with the American people?

MEGYN: I think they will be disgusted like him.

But unfortunately, I think the very group Trump is struggling with, women, former Republicans, in the suburbs, like where I live. They're not going to like this. You know, because most of our husbands don't cheat on us with porn stars and playmates of the years. And --

GLENN: Well, I would hope -- I would hope that it doesn't just -- we don't. Yeah. We're all cheating. But not necessarily with porn stars. And play boys.

STU: There's also so many playmates of the year. They would be way too busy if everybody were cheating.

GLENN: Yeah. Way too busy. I don't think most husbands cheat on their wives.

MEGYN: I don't think they do. So they're not going to like this. You can't forget MAGA. Those guys who are out in front of the White House now, amazing.

The pro-Trump guys with all their pro-Trump gear. And they're like the anti-Trump guys. Did you see the guy with the flute?

He hates Trump! Like liar. Narcissist. Felon. And then he's playing the lovely flute. Saying God bless America.

Anyway, the hard-core MAGA, they're not going to care. We all know. Nothing is going to change their mind. And most Republicans are on Team Trump, and realize it's a political persecution.

But there is a group of independents now, center right independents. Who used to be Republicans. Who don't like Trump. And it would be helpful to the Republican Party and to Trump. If those people could be more disgusted with Biden than with Trump.

GLENN: Right.

MEGYN: And they might yet be. And I don't mean the conviction. The conviction won't help either.

Six weeks of Trump is a shitty husband. That won't help.

GLENN: Remember.

STU: Broadcast.

GLENN: Broadcast. That's all right. That's all right.

So, Megyn, does he go to jail? You said he will be convicted. Does he go to jail? And what would that mean? How much time would he be facing on this?

MEGYN: He's not going to jail on this case. He's not.

But you have lunatics like Andrew Weissmann, who honestly, he's not a -- like, this guy has done a very legitimate legal resume. I realize he left the FBI and all that.

But he was general council of the FBI, was a US attorney, and he's out there saying nonsense like, well, Trump is a recidivist. A recidivist is someone who continues to commit crime after he's served time or been convicted. You know, like you can't stop yourself from selling the heroin.

That's not Trump! So it is true, that there's some potential for jail time, if this judge somehow turns him into a repeat offender because he is facing three other criminal trials.

That's not happening. So I don't think he will go to jail for this one. I think it will be a matter of fines. But if -- that doesn't change much. I mean, jail time would be far, far worse.

But they still have their conviction.

And the thing is, guys, half of independents and still one-third of the Republicans, are saying they like Trump. But they can't vote for a convicted felon.

And I had this conviction -- I think it was with you guys, Stu. You and Dave Marcus were on my show this week. What if they mean it.

I know we don't think they mean it. What if they do mean it.

I look at this. Huh. What if we're wrong?

What if we're downplaying this, like, everyone knows this is BS, but we're wrong? When we misread the polls. And we do often. Because who the heck knows what to believe on polls anymore.

GLENN: Yep.

MEGYN: We get burned.

And so today really could be day one, in Trump losing this election. It could be.

GLENN: My gosh.

MEGYN: I don't think it will be.

But I recognize the danger of what they're doing here. And, of course, we all know, that's why they're doing it.

GLENN: I was hoping that it would backfire on them. I think it has to some degree.

I don't know when you add the actual felony. You know, to this.

MEGYN: That's the thing. That's the question.

Is the backfire bounce, already baked in.

GLENN: Hmm.

MEGYN: Right?

Have they already gotten all the bounce there is to get, from the outrage, over resetting norms that have been in place for almost 250 years.

And that, of course, would be the Democrat's plan, to boost him in the primaries.

He'll get whatever bounce he gets in the backlash.

And then it waned over the course of what they hoped would be four criminal trials. Now it looks like just this one.

But this is their best shot. Six weeks. Disgusting man. Horrid husband. And now convicted felony.

They don't need to hurt him much. You know, Joe Biden only one by 45,000 votes. They don't need to hurt him much.

GLENN: I know.

The Dirty Trick that Makes Congress RICH but Would Put YOU in Jail

The best Wall Street stock traders are NOT hedge fund managers or financial experts. They're members of Congress like Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Brian Higgins, and Dan Crenshaw. But how do all these lawmakers from BOTH parties manage to outperform the experts? Well, it may be through a practice that would get YOU thrown in jail ... but not them. This is all exposed in the newest Blaze Originals documentary “Bought and Paid For: How Politicians Get Filthy Rich.” But first, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to explain how this scheme works.

WWII Pilot: What Hollywood Left Out from ‘Masters of the Air’ TV Series | Glenn TV | Ep 346

There’s a lesson or two (or 20) today’s younger generations could learn from the men and women who served in World War II. "America’s Greatest Generation" suited up, stared evil in the face, and they did what needed to be done to protect freedom ... often with zero complaints. "Saving Private Ryan" was the first depiction to come close to what WWII veterans truly experienced and then "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" did the same. But until recently, there wasn’t a similar production showcasing the heroes who spent much of the war in the sky. Finally, "Masters of the Air" is doing just that. One of the pilots who helped inspire the series, John "Lucky" Luckadoo, joins Glenn in-studio to share real-life war experiences with the Air Force’s "Bloody Hundredth" bomber unit that Hollywood will never be able to fully capture — like how pilots could barely breathe while flying the B-17 planes and the one aspect of war he chose never to focus on: "I worked my tail off," he says, rather than fixating on the reality that he may never make it home. Plus, "Lucky" gives a brutally honest answer on how he dealt with the psychological pressure of World War II, and he shares one part of the story of the "Bloody Hundredth" that Hollywood chose to leave out ...
