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? “

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
