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.”

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
