CNN host admits he advises Obama

Is it weird that a CNN host serves as an advisor to President Obama? The same reporter who seems to attack Glenn on a fairly regular basis? Glenn and the radio guys sure though Fareed Zakaria’s close relationship to the White House was a little odd for the supposedly unbiased reporter.

“Well, it is good to see that CNN keeps their standards so very, very high that they have a guy who is doing a news show that is an advisor for the president,” Glenn said.

“Is somebody in the media going to ask that question to Jay Carney today, let's see how he stumbles through that answer? I'd like to know because, you know, I don't know. Seems like they are constantly criticizing, you know, everyone else about their standards,” Stu said.

On his CNN program, Eliot Spitzer asked Fareed, “Look, I read something in the paper this week a couple of days ago that made me bring a smile to my face. It said the president of the United States calls you for wisdom and advice about issues around the world. So first when he calls you, what does he say, hi, Barack, you're calling for Fareed? What does he do?”

“Mostly it's been face‑to‑face meetings. You know, it's usually organized by Tom Donilon, the National Security Advisor. What I'm struck by, though, honestly, Elliott, is how much time he's spending thinking about the issues of the Arab strain, particularly the issues of Egypt, how to make it go right, what are the mechanisms that the United States has to help the moderates and liberals. It's been a very thoughtful conversation. You know, we'll see where it goes,” Zakaria answered.

“Shouldn't we know if a reporter or a show host, a talk show host is giving advice to the president of the United States, shouldn't we know what those conversations were so when we hear it spill out of his mouth, we know if it's propaganda, to forward the presidential objectives?” Glenn asked.

“You would think CNN's standards would be that this guy would no longer be employed as of right now. But those aren't CNN standards because the guy's trying to pawn himself off as a newsman,” Pat said.

“I mean, you could have Fareed on but he could say, I cannot talk to you about these issues. Or, he has to say, look, I spoke to the president on these issues and here's what the president is thinking and this is why, et cetera, et cetera. But then it's literally an arm of the Obama administration. But at least it's out in the open. But you would have to draw a line. You'd have to say, I recuse myself because I have inside information. Do you not?” Glenn said.

Glenn pointed out that his show and Zakaria’s show are both opinion show, and its not unusual for hosts of an opinion show to come with a bias. But there is a big difference between Zakaria and Glenn.

Glenn said, “I don't have a problem with him doing that, or CNN running that. But where we split is I'm not an adviser for the president of the United States. I'm not an advisor.”

“You can't be advising the president on what the president should be doing in the Middle East and having those secret conversations and then go on the air and say, let me tell you what I think we should do in the Middle East; let me tell you what I think which story is really important. Because you don't know if he is furthering the president or the administration's wishes or not.”

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
