Obama blames economy on everyone but himself...

President Obama took to the stand yesterday to offer a “reassuring” word to the American people and the world, in hopes to offset what was turning out to a dismal day on Wall Street in response to S&P’s credit downgrade.

The Dow was in trouble long before the President addressed the nation, down over 400 points, but what was supposed to be a rallying cry to the public, clearly fell on deaf ears, for the Presidents speech resulted in an additional 200 point run of the market, leaving the Dow down 634 points on the day.

Way to go Mr. President!

Yesterday’s speech, besides being remarkably uninspiring, sought to remind us all that President Obama is in way, shape, or form to blame for the beating our economy and country has taken these past few weeks.

In fact, Obama blamed Bush (surprise, surprise), headwinds (?), earthquakes, the Arab Spring (even though he used to support that), conservatives (because when in doubt, blame the right), and just about everything else for the bad economy.

The President proclaimed that we knew “from the onset” about the damage the debt debate would cause “precisely because we were inheriting so many challenges.” He also pointed to the fact that there was a budget surplus in 2001, but a trillion dollar deficit in 2008 when he took office (apparently all the money he has added to that deficit is trivial).

“To make matters worse, in the last few months, the economies already had absorbed an earthquake in Japan, the economic headwinds coming from Europe, the Arab spring…” Obama continued.

The speech proved to be just another example of our President’s tremendous aptitude to place blame and divert attention away from himself. But Glenn is not convinced that the President is as uninvolved as he claims, and sees this as a coordinated effort to bring down the country.

“This is, as George Soros said, ‘We just need to have a changed decline of the system.’ That's what's happening right now. This is a managed decline,” Glenn said on radio this morning.

“With that being said, it's not by happenstance, it's not incompetence that is bringing it [the economy] down.  You're seeing it brought down now in a controlled way,” Glenn added.

Apparently the President has decided the best way to jump into action is to take the day off and clear his schedule, which is what he has done today. There are even rumors of Congress being called into session.

“Oh, that's going to make it better, Mr. President,” Glenn said. “Just like when you started talking yesterday, the Dow was at 400 and now we're down over 600. By the time you were finished talking, it had fallen 200 points. Shhh. Shhh.  Quiet, Mr. President, quiet.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
