Why does Glenn pray President Obama is ‘exactly like’ FDR?

On radio this morning, Glenn explained what he believes to be the two most important stories out of Egypt: the persecution of Christians and the potential economic fallout in America as a result of rising gas prices. Both issues have received little coverage from the mainstream media, but, as Glenn explained, the United States now finds itself in a situation very similar to that of the 1940s. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ultimately chose to forego the New Deal for capitalism – will President Obama do the same?

“Egypt is going to affect you, whether you know it or not, because of our blessing of the
Muslim Brotherhood, and what they are now doing to the Coptic Christians,” Glenn said. “And this is a story that media just does not care about. You’re going to need to pay attention to it, and share the information with your friends and with your church, and let people know what’s really happening. There’s a purge going on that is akin to the Night of Broken Glass in Germany. It is a frightening situation, if you are a Christian in Egypt.”

On Friday’s Glenn Beck Program, guest-host Laurie Dhue spoke to Erick Stakelbeck about the persecution Coptic Christians have faced in the region, and Erick specifically called out the media for failing to cover the story.

Meanwhile, we are still sending aid – to the tune of $1.5 billion annually – to the Egyptian military. While it may be becoming more and more difficult to justify the enormous aid check, but Glenn found himself conflicted on the topic.

“I did a lot of thinking and praying on this over the weekend, and I don’t think that we have a choice at this point. My feeling is that we shouldn’t be sending aid over to Egypt, but if we cut the aid off in Egypt, it will spiral that nation out of control even faster than it is,” Glenn explained. “We should not be sending aid over to Egypt, however, we are in a position now, because of our behavior and because of the choices we already made, that if we don’t fund is military, which will be the hardline crackdown – if we’re lucky, it will become the new Mubarak. If we don’t support them, then we are look at an all-out civil war between the Muslim Brotherhood and something even potentially more dangerous.”

So what would Glenn do if he were in President Obama’s position?

“If I were president, I would get our ducks in a row right now and start drilling for oil and I would open up absolutely every oilfield we could possibly open and I would take the shackles off of our energy developing companies and I would say, ‘Go get it, boys. And do it quickly. You are running out of time,’” Glenn said. “If I were president, I would use the aid we are doing to buy us time, but I would make it very clear… I’m taking all shackles off our oil companies on anything they want to produce here because we have to be energy-independent right now.”

In 2008, the U.S. economy collapsed with gas prices at $140 per barrel. Today, oil is at $107.46, and many are speculating that the devolving situation in Egypt could drive prices close to $200 a barrel and beyond.

“There will come a time that the world will have to get involved in the Middle East and will have to get involved most likely in Egypt because of the Suez Canal. If they close the Suez Canal, prices of oil immediately skyrocket, probably to $180 a barrel. That adds ungodly amounts of money to be able to get oil,” Glenn explained. “So whatever you are paying for gas today, I want you to look at that gas price and realize that unless we find some way to put the genie back in the bottle or… we uncap those resources and start going for our own resources, we are done.”

Glenn liked the situation we currently find ourselves in to that of the 1940s. Prior to entering World War II the economy was in shambles and not getting any better, as President Roosevelt continued to implement the New Deal. Ultimately, however, even FDR realized the value of capitalism in troubled economic times. But will President Obama see things the same way?

“There is the possibility that things get so bad that this president realizes we are done as a nation, unless we go to the capitalists and turn this engine back on. Oil is going to go through the roof, I fear. If it does, we’re in deep, deep trouble,” Glenn said. “The question is, do you believe in the end that this president is a patriot that doesn’t want to see America completely destroyed. Because there are many of our grandparents… that felt the same way about FDR as we do about this president – the government is getting out of control, we are starting to head towards tyranny, this guy doesn’t know what he’s doing, and he doesn’t love the country. In the end, FDR showed that yes, he did want America to survive. Let’s pray that this president is exactly like FDR, that in the end, he does love the country and he will do the right thing, and when we have our back up against the wall, he shows us that yes, yes, this system can produce, and watch us produce.”

    Sad to say this Glenn but Obama is a fanatical communist – he wants to be an Imperialist President and cares nothing for Capitalism.

    Will not happen, not in a thousand years, for his hatred for the Untied States, our life, our ways and our very culture an tradition are absolute and he is determined to destroy it.

    # 32, FDR, began his presidency as a collectivist, and he died a collectivist. #33, Harry S Truman, replaced a dead FDR; #33, too, was a collectivist during his entire term in office.

    #34, Dwight D Eisenhower started as a hegemonic collectivist; however, as he left office he was repentant enough to issue a warning which has gone unheeded. Yet, again and again, amerikans are complicit with the amerikan empire’s wars of aggression.

    “This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

    In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the Military Industrial   Complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

    We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together. ” ~ Dwight D Eisenhower

    I feel it would be great if he is like FDR. Other that Lincoln FDR has been the best president in the nations history.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Look at the entire last five years he has been in office, his entire agenda is based on the transformation of the United States, from Obama-care that usurped 1/6th of the economy, to massive debt, massive spending, and crushing the economy under oppressive regulation, taxation and more.

    Open your eyes and look around, see the truth and make up your own mind.

    I don’t know where GB gets this “feeling” or idea that Obama does not love this great country??
    GB and most conservatives have never sat down with the man himself without cameras or reporters around to better known Mr. Obama. How some people think they know a person you have never hang out with or grew up with? Mr. Obama is a true American story . . . son of a hippie American mother and an African father; born in Hawaii, raised between Thailand and US; educated in America’s schools and grew under his maternal grandparents, who were as American as apple pie. Its amazing how he came out of all these unbalance in life and became our President . . . Children, if Obama did it, you can do it too! This still the land of hope and opportunity. America, keep your head up . . . we still great!!

    America has transfromed itself since 1776 . . . Its call TIME folks and time changes with time. Some Presidents are conservatives, others are progressives, some are good, some are bad, some are white and finally some are black. Its the nature of politics and issues. I just hope some conservatives stop the negativity they are in and begin to take a more open minded vision on this President. He is not perfect and we should not expect that from any politician or men or women . . . Obama was voted in twice and his tenure will be over in 2016. It will be interesting to see what history say about us later on during the Obama times??

     Cause Glenn comes form a mindset that because Obama took his father’s “foreign/black/mulsim” sounding name over his mother’s white christian american sounding last name that he hates this country

  • Trevor Hansen

    No it’s because Obama said he has to “fundamentally transform” the US and his wife Michelle said she was never proud of the country UNTIL Barack got the nomination, not when he was elected as a Senator. Also Obama goes around apologizing for the US in every foreign speech he gives and saying how flawed we are as a nation. Also he sat in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years where Jeremiah preaches how evil the US is and how the Whites are the source of all the problems in the world and the African-Americans in the US. This church is so bad Oprah quit going to it.

    Obama took on his father’s cause of anti colonialism and we are now being punished by him due to how this country was was colonized.  According to his sick way of thinking he is punishing us due to our forefathers, for taking this land from the Indians and he will not stop until we are destroyed.  Isn’t he such a great man, have you seen anything he has done for the Indians lately???  Yes, some things that were done during the building of this once great nation were not right but a lot of things were.  Who the heck is this guy, God, the great avenger?  Furthermore although some things were not right, what he is doing is trying to make 2 wrongs into a right, and this all for his daddy.  That’s why he hates England.  Why would he return the gift of the bust of Churchill given to the US as a gift?  Look it up.

    “Open-minded”???  “Stop the negativity”????  You and those of your ilk need to “OPEN YOUR EYES”!!  The things that are occuring in this country are part of Obama’s (and those like him) master plan.  He did warn the country prior to his first election that he was going to “fundamentallly transform” this nation.  Moochelle said that Barack was going to change our customs, our history, our traditions, etc. etc.  And he is doing his very best to do just that.  He hates the Constitution and America as it was founded.  If you are paying any attention, you know he has said this in his own words.  He said he believed the Constitution was a set of “negative” liberties and basically that he did not believe in them.  Can you not see this for yourself?  It doesn’t take too much of a brain to hear his words and understand what he himself has said!  YOU are the blind oneif you cannot see this, not those of us that see what this “person” is doing to our country.  If things do not change, America will be history in our lifetime so we won’t have to wait too long to find out what “history” says about Obama ruining the most wonderful country on earth….I hope you are proud of yourself because you will have helped him on his mission.

    What Obama has that FDR did not is multiple generations of voters indoctrinated by a federal education system and 50 years of communist societal manipulation. Obama will never embrace
    capitalism.

    Compare the 1934 political cartoon about FDR at this link to today’s situation. It should look very familiar. Note the Action Plan at the bottom, left. The only thing not yet completed is the last item.

    OBama isn’t calling the shots, Glen. The Flying Monkeys are. It’s up to us. I keep saying, “Follow the Money.” The more money, the more culpable they have been in the destruction of not only this nation, but the world. We have to make our OWN industries, through our own personal businesses. Online businesses. hme businesses, that the pigs in the government can’t regulate or control. And put the proceeds in Bitcoin or other virtual currency the globalist thieves can’t play their stupid games with. We don’t have to obey the Fuhuer. He’s giving us unlawful orders. He isn’t the president. he never was. He can’t even prove who he was, and he wasn’t legally elected, and he can’t prove that either. Let’s tell them to try. Firstly, lets ask for a full audit of the Tides Foundation and the Campaign Funding Records and all those Pac records from the foundations and whatever. I’d like to see how a really rich bunch of stuck up snobs look while they are collectively shitting bricks.

    Well I guess if nobody else has brought it up (you know) I guess I should remind you all there not even close to being the same all of Mr.Becks facts are correct but we as racist crackers forgot he is a Black man and he say’s he is much better at understanding us white folks and we white folks just don’t get it so see he is clearly a much better ?

       glenn, let me try this one more time. obama was hired by satan to destroy this country. china a godless nation rises out of the sea to rule the world.

    It would take a supernatural act of Almighty God to turn our president around.I agree that in his heart and mind he is loving the destruction of American while he and family vacation on our tax dollars! God can turn this around  for his Glory! Since God is in the business of supernatural acts.. I encourage all believers to petition that God save our nation! If God would chose to do this we must be clear it would be miracle from our creator! ” One nation under God!”

    Sorry Laurie, but Coptic Christians weren’t the first inhabitants of Egypt — Egypt was around at the beginning of civilization – about 2000 years before Christ —- remember, the Israelites were in slavery there i.e. “Let my people go…”  Sad though that Obama depises Christians so much he’s okay with their slaughter —- pre-anti-Christ type he is.

    No, sorry, Obama doesn’t want to see the light for this nation – he’ll try to keep driivng us down, down, down to destruction – then he’ll be happy – now that he has his $10M plus – he doesn’t care.

    in the end, this president will love himself.  the only thing that motivates him to do anything is if he benefits from the act.  so, if america happens to benefit from any given action, that is purely on the side.  applying intellectual honesty, sometimes america benefiting from any action on his part may well have to do w/his legacy but in the end he won’t bleed, he won’t suffer for america; he’ll not be inconvenienced one bit for america and he certainly won’t die for america.  he has given us so many reasons to dislike him as he’s shown great distain for americans; he’s a man who does not belong where he is and is certainly not worthy of his position; he’s committed treason by arming the enemy.  there is absolutely no question as to the character of this man.

    not one bit of doubt about that.

    You know what the funny part about this is? You actually believe that I am a Republican. You actually believe that both sides are not trying to accomplish the SAME goal. If you believe that these people are not trying to turn this into socialist/communist state, you are a fool. The healthcare take over is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The government being involved in any business is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The “public-option is there, you aren’t smart enough to see it. It’s called the expansion of Medicaid, for those who can’t afford the premiums. You must have missed the part about requiring a 29 hour work week for EMPLOYER MANDATED HEALTHCARE, everyone else WILL be on Medicaid. It is a take-over.

    So, in summation, for the prepetually stupid. Both sides are attempting the take-over and fools, like you, are too blind to see. None of this is Constitutional. The Bill of Rights was written to LIMIT the Federal Government for a REASON. If you want those things, move to China, Europe or any place that has it. You will NEVER see those things come to be in this country.
