Gas prices soar...and that's OK?

According to the media and The President, soaring gas prices are just fine. They are so good, in fact, that the media and politicians are bending over backwards to talk about how great skyrocketing prices can be! Yes, the same people that once derided President Bush for high oil prices are now saying how great this could be for Obama. Geez...

"The average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States is now $3.53. The average price of a gallon of gasoline is higher than $3.70 in Connecticut, Washington D.C., and New York. In mid‑January 2009 the average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States was $1.85, $1.85. The average price of a gallon of gasoline in the United States has risen 25 cents since January of this year. Never before in U.S. history has the price of gasoline been this high so early in the year," Glenn said.

"The Oil Price Information Service projects that the price of gas could reach an average of $4.25 a gallon by the end of April."

"But that's not the only thing that you're being hit with now. If you want to get into your car and drive your car all over the country, our politicians are putting up tollbooths. Most of the time these tollbooths are going up on roads that have already been paid for. So now you're paying an outrageous sum of money for gasoline and you're putting up tollbooths and being asked to pay for tolls on roads that have already been paid for," he continued.

There's a new bill in Congress that wants to allow even more highways to be made into toll roads.

"It's almost as if somebody is trying to force us to stop driving our car," Glenn observed.

"So what is the good news? Well, the good news is, is that sources are saying an economic collapse will help the price of oil and gasoline. Because that's what happened in 2008. Remember? Gas was up to $141 a barrel and then crashed down? Because we didn't have any money. There's your good news," Glenn said.

"The president, however, says that, no, no, it's because the world is booming now. The good news is that the price of gasoline is a good sign," he said.

But is that true? Glenn played audio from the last election when people didn't seem to agree.

"What we are seeing is, you know, a government run for the oil company," Democrat Barbara Boxer said just a few years ago when oil prices were high.

"Drivers are paying a heavy price in the Bush administration's failure to enact a comprehensive energy strategy. This Congress, under the Democratic leadership, is working to make up for years of inaction, taking America in a new direction that helps bring down the cost of gas," Pelosi said.

"Gas prices have more than doubled since George Bush became our president," Hillary Clinton said.

And what about President Obama? "I understand how desperate folks are. I met a guy who couldn't go on a job search, had lost his job, couldn't go on a job search because of the high price of gas. Just couldn't fill up his tank. I met a teacher in South Dakota who loved her job as a teacher on an Indian reservation. They had to quit because the drive was too far. She ‑‑ it was taking up too much of her paycheck. I know how bad people are hurting. "

The President has also said that gas prices are rising due to the surging economy...really? Really?

And what are people in the media saying are the benefits of high gas?

More jobs! (where?)

It encourages us to look for alternative fuel sources! (Yay?)

2,220 people have already been saved over the past year because of reduction in driving has led to less particle pollution in the air. (Really?)

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

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.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

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.
