Did Obama really flip flop on Gitmo?

Remember how just a few months ago President Obama and Eric Holder were pushing for the 9/11 terrorists to stand trial in downtown New York City? But then suddenly, it’s been announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will actually face a military trial at Guantanamo Bay. Why the sudden change? Glenn gave his reaction on radio this morning.

“Isn't it strange that he does this now?” Glenn asked.

“He waited for six months and now he's doing it. It's almost like -- can I -- can I tell you something? This is an interesting theory and I -- this is -- it's not even a theory. It's more of an idea or a noticeable moment,” he said.

“The President, he starts out and he's, like, ‘I am so against these terror trials in Gitmo because these terror trials in Gitmo, do you know what they do? They inflame the Muslim world’,” Glenn said,

“They inflame the Muslim world. And so you can't do it and so he wanted to close down Gitmo because it's such a nasty place and then do the terror trials here -- just a couple of blocks away in New York City, away -- just a couple of blocks away from Ground Zero.”

“That would prove American justice to the Muslim world,” Pat said. “It would show them what kind of a people we are.”

Glenn jokingly said that there was no way that trying these terrorists a few blocks from Ground Zero would cause any problems in New York City, not to mention nearly bankrupt the city with the costs associated of putting that type of trial on in New York.

“So, then that [Ground Zero mosque] story just goes away. The President's thinking about it. But then he decides, I'm going to launch a third front in a third Muslim country. That's what I'm going to do. And I'm going to -- I'm going to set the world on fire by saying, Hey, kiddos, rise up. Revolution is neat-o. And so they do. And then Terry Jones sets the Middle East on fire even some more,” Glenn said.

“The Pentagon tried to make sure that nobody released these [photos] a year ago, but somebody decided to sit on these pictures for a year of our troops being dirt bags, five members of our troops, but then coincidentally on the weekend that we decide to go to war in a third Muslim country, Der Spiegel and Rolling Stone decide to print these old pictures which they say in Germany is setting the Muslim world on fire,” Glenn said.

“Then, just last week, the President has decided that he's going to -- he's going to now start to back the Ivory Coast candidate, you know. He's the rightfully elected. He was democratically elected Muslim candidate.”

“So, we seem to be on the wrong side there, as well as we have the Muslim world enraged in all of the streets in North Africa and throughout the Middle East,” Glenn said.

“What was he flip-flopping on? Gitmo. Out of all of the times that he could now reverse himself on Gitmo and say, We’re going to hold those terror trials. Out of the two years that he's had in office, now is the time to hold trials there at Gitmo for the 9/11 terrorists. My gosh, what an unfortunate flip-flop that is. A noticeable moment of strange, unfortunate timing.”

“Perhaps they realized that just late last week it became not to dangerous in the Muslim world to try prisoners at Gitmo. Is that possible?” Pat asked.

While it’s certainly possible that the President’s reversal is just a case of bad timing, it sure seems like a huge coincidence.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
