Obama says Americans aren't paying attention

President Obama held yet another press conference yesterday to remind the American people that he is doing everything in his power to solve the looming debt crisis and budget debate.

Though the President’s remarks did little more than strengthen the argument that he is in way over his head (especially in regards to the economy), the mainstream media has once again come to his defense. In fact, reporters practically begged President Obama to solve the crisis during yesterday's press conference.

Glenn and Pat were not so convinced of the President’s capability this morning on radio.

It has become a habit of the administration to speak about the American public as though they are ignorant fools and this press conference was no exception.

“Talk down to me some more, Mr. President,” Glenn said in response to theses remarks:

VOICE: Only 24 percent of Americans say you should raise the debt limit to avoid an economic catastrophe. There's still 69 percent who oppose raising the debt limit. Is it the problem that you and others have failed to convince Americans that we have a crisis here and how are you going to change that?

OBAMA: Let, let me distinguish between professional politicians and the public at large. The public is not paying close attention to how a treasury auction goes. They shouldn't, they're worrying about their families, they're worrying about their jobs, they're worrying about their neighborhood. They've got a lot of other things on their plate. We're paid to worry about it.

Considering how well the debt talks have been going so far, it is safe to say that the American people surely have a lot to worry about, and the government’s actions, or lack there of, to this point are certainly cause for concern.

“We're trained professionals. Back away. We've done a good job at this whole debt thing for years now. The people shouldn't pay attention to it,” Glenn joked. “This notion that people should pay attention is nonsense.”

At the end of the day it is clear that the country in trouble, and no matter how many softball style questions the media may throw the President’s way, it is time for the American people to wake up and pay attention.

“Yes, they should (pay attention). America, do not listen to this man,” Glenn said. “You should know what treasury auctions even mean. You should know the consequences. It's your damn money, and your country. But they'll take care of it. They've taken care of it so far, haven't they? “

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
