Obama doubles down against the Vatican - Updated

UPDATED:

Glenn discussed this story further on GBTV, commenting on The Pope's reasons for making so many conservative bishops into cardinals:

Original Story:

It appears that the Obama Administration has decided to double down in their attack on the Catholic Church. The State Department has put the church onto its money laundering concern list, which means the federal government can now monitor their cash flow.

“Now’s the time when we’re going to see whether the Vatican is really truly going to stand,” Glenn said, “I will tell you this Pope is going to stand. How long this Pope stands, I don’t know.”

Last month Glenn took a trip to the Vatican to meet with many of the church’s top officials. He went for many reasons, one of which was that history was being made there. “You are witnessing history,” Glenn recalled telling his children.

There is an internal conflict inside of the Catholic Church right now, one that goes beyond Obamacare and global politics. Glenn described it as “a spiritual battle, and a battle that this Pope has been on a track to fight. I will tell you that I didn't know how I felt about this Pope or anything else until I was in Rome and I spoke to some of the counselors and to some of the people there. They really, truly get it.”

It’s rare that Glenn finds a leader of a country or any large organization that really “gets it,” but after speaking with many of the Catholic officials that is what Glenn was led to believe. The Pope has also been appointing a lot of strong traditionally conservative Cardinals—packing the Catholic Church with those who will stand for their values if he were to step down.

This Pope has also been issuing a lot of letters to the church’s leaders in America, calling for the priests and bishops to stand up against the attacks on their faith. One example is a recent letter telling these leaders to stand up against the attack on traditional marriage in the church—a message that is supposed to be delivered this coming weekend.

“The Pope knows that there is a split in the Catholic Church, and he is trying to fight against it from the inside,” Glenn said when explaining that most likely many American Catholic Churches will not deliver this message to their congregants.

Social justice, an issue Glenn has harped on since long before the attack on Catholics, is one major cause of the divide inside of the church. Progressives and progressive organizations have been inside the Catholic Church for a long time. Soros organizations and his money have had a lot of influence in the church, some of the same organizations that have gone after Glenn in the past few years.

The most recent move by the Obama Administration, using the State Department to monitor money that goes through the Vatican is being portrayed as “help.” Glenn described the move as the State Department sarcastically saying, “we want to be sure that nobody is laundering money through the Vatican. We’re just going to put all of these new regulations up so that you can do business cleanly.”

Glenn does not believe that this Pope will acquiesce to the White House. “Obama’s thrown the gauntlet down,” Glenn said. “He’s doubled down. He first said you will acquiesce. And the Pope said we will not submit. We will not comply. He took a stand, and if the American people don’t stand with the Catholics and the Catholics don’t stand with the Pope, it isn’t gonna last long.”

Glenn went on to explain that they always start with one group, but it never stays with one group. The Catholics are under attack now, but if they can get an organization that large to give up their freedoms how long before they try to do the same to other religious organizations?

“Call your parish. Call your Catholic friends. Tell them. You stand to help them. Tell them you will stand with them. If we don't hang together, we will certainly hang separately, to quote Benjamin Franklin,” Glenn concluded.

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

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."
