Obama Rewrites History

 

In case you haven’t heard, GM is back on their feet. At least that’s what President Obama told the auto workers in Detroit yesterday.

“They made a huge profit last year. Largest ever,” Pat told Glenn, isn’t buying the claim from the President.

“It’s pretty easy to make a huge profit when the government comes in and pays all my bills. America spent eighty billion—eighty—bailouts. We’re not getting it back gang,” Glenn said.

The only reason that GM is “back on their feet” is because America spent eighty billion dollars. But, that’s not all the President had to say. He went on, “The same folks who said if we went forward with our plan to rescue Detroit you can kiss the American automotive industry good-bye.”

Of course the President didn’t care to give any examples of people saying that. In fact, Stu points out that they were saying the opposite.

“We were making the argument if you didn’t give them any money, and they went through bankruptcy that they would still survive. The complete opposite of what he’s saying,” Stu said.

Glenn jumped in and pointed out that they may have said if the government jumps in, and tries to design automobiles that they wouldn’t succeed. Judging from the Chevy Volt, it’s a safe assumption that was another accurate prediction from Glenn.

“Remember when Obama said that Ford had to have the bailout? All of them had to take it, and Ford said up yours Mr. President. They took zero dollars. Ford is doing well,” Glenn said. (and their cars don’t look like Chevy Volts, I might add…)

“They [Ford] did not take the bailouts… They’re still around magically!” Stu added.

Pat, who doesn’t support the bailouts either, made an interesting point. “While I don’t support the bailouts, I don’t either support him taking credit for something he did not do. Bush did the bailout, and he has rewritten history to take credit for it,” Pat said.

President went on to make it seem like those against the bailouts were against the workers, and that’s who the bailouts were for. That is wasn’t about paying back the unions.

“Explain to me how the unions leapt over the bond holders. That doesn’t happen. That required someone in the government to make that happen,” Glenn said.

This is the President who during is campaign said, “I spent my entire adult life working with SEIU, I didn’t suddenly discover SEIU. Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating healthcare I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members. Before immigration debates took place in Washington I talked with Medina and SEIU members. Before the EFCA I talked to SEIU.” …but he’s not a union guy.

“You know what kills me,” Glenn said, “the number one visitor to the White House is Andy Stern and Richard Trumpka.” Later adding, “ALF-CIO and SEIU, are number one, and you’re not a union guy?”

“It’s amazing,” Stu said, “This is essentially his main argument for re-election—this ridiculous bailout of the auto industry, in which we, the American people, are going to lose twenty-four billion dollars. His priority, this thing he thinks is his best argument, has us losing dozens of billions of dollars. We’re not picking his worth thing and making fun of it. This is what he’s picking as his best thing.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
