Obama worse than Dr. Evil?

Was President Obama channeling Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movies in his State of the Union address last night? Glenn had fun with Obama’s calls for more spending (or is it investing?) in his State of the Union speech last night.

“The speech last night was a campaign speech and we are starting to see the beginning of changity change change again,” Glenn said about the President’s speech.

Remember when the Obama administration was calling for high speed bullet trains? Much like a lot of the content in the President’s speech last night, the message and the facts don’t line up.

“Ooh, bullet trains?  That sounds, well, violent, but it sounds great.  A bullet train?  Please don't let anybody explain to me why bullet trains won't work here in America.  You know, the fact that we only have a single rail system.  So in other words, our freight trains run on the same tracks that our new bullet trains would run on. And the bullet train might go a little faster than a freight train and go bumpity bump bump, boom, but don't explain that because it just sounds better if we just say, we should get a bullet train.”

Glenn almost had an aneurysm when the President said America’s infrastructure was just rated and got a “D”, and we need to invest more into strengthening our infrastructure.

“I immediately thought to myself, isn't this kind of the same speech he gave two years ago and he said, ‘And that's why I need a trillion dollars’,” Glenn said.

“The last time I heard somebody use a trillion dollars, wouldn't say it with a straight face, I need one trillion ‑‑ when I say $1 trillion, you think of a guy in a gray suit with his pinky up to his lip.  He's bald.  It was an Austin Powers movie, $1 trillion.  Remember?  Remember when a trillion dollars used to mean something?” Glenn said, referencing Dr. Evil from Austin Powers.

Movie expert Stu chimed in, “I think he said a million and then everyone made fun of him and then he said a hundred billion.”

“Dr. Evil was only one tenth of what Barack Obama asked for two years ago,” said Glenn.

Glenn could not believe that President Obama asked for the a trillion dollars two years ago and came back to the State of the Union last night and asked for more money without showing any results.

“Instead I say, ‘I was given the trillion dollars.  Green jobs are the future and let me tell you something.  We have found a company and we invested.  We took that trillion dollars and we invested.  We gave them a loan.  They couldn't get a loan from any bank and we thought it was a great idea.  And here's what they've done.  And they've hired 150,000 people.  And I don't even need to tell you about this because you have these stupid shingles on your house.  Because they're so amazing, they're flying out of the store, we're sending them all over the world,’” Glenn explained.

What would Glenn make sure he didn’t say. Pretty much what President Obama said last night.

“I would not go in front of the American people and say, ‘And I know I told you this before, and I have no evidence to back it up now:  Green jobs are really the future, and the way to get green jobs to be good is we're going to penalize anybody who doesn't buy the crap we're now building with your trillion dollars that we can't really track and tell you how we spent it.’”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
