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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
