Tom Hanks shills for Obama in new propaganda film

Tom Hanks really needs to do a better job in picking what movies he gets involved with. Sure, he’s been in some classics: Forrest Gump, The Da Vinci Code, Toy Story, Catch Me If You Can. All are really good films. But, some of his recent choices don’t seem to be quite as good. Larry Crowne, for example, didn’t get a lot of great reviews. But his worst choice, by far, is his decision to narrate The Road We’ve Travelled, the Barack Obama propaganda film that came out a few weeks ago.  How bad was that film? Glenn, Pat, and Stu tore it apart on radio this morning using FactCheck.org and gave Hanks some career advice when picking his next film.

 

What did FactCheck.org have to say about the Obama propaganda film? Well, to start…

  • The film says “17 million kids could no longer be denied for preexisting conditions,” implying all of them were being denied care before the federal health care law was passed. But that’s the total number of kids who could potentially be denied coverage or charged higher premiums ifthey sought coverage on the individual market.
  • It also implies that Obama has reined in the costs of health care premiums — which “had been rising three times the rate of inflation,” as the film says. But the law hasn’t reined in premiums, which still rose three times more than inflation last year. In fact, experts say some of the recent growth was caused by the law, which requires more generous coverage.
  • The film suggests that Obama refused to compromise on health care. Obama did hold out for a comprehensive bill, but there was compromise along the way, including the decision to drop the “public option” that he once championed. Later, he called the law “nine-tenths of a loaf.”
  • On the auto bailout, the video says automakers have “repaid their loans.” But taxpayers are still on the hook for half of the $80 billion in federal aid. It also suggests that Bush gave away $13 billion to auto companies without demanding action on their part, when, in fact, Bush required them to come up with the so-called economic viability plans by March 31, 2009. Obama then used the plans to force the companies into bankruptcy and force the restructuring of the companies.

 

Ok, clearly not the most accurate film ever.

 

The conversation then turned to narrator Tom Hanks.

 

“Tom Hanks, may you go the way of Oprah,” Glenn said. Glenn reminded audiences that career did not benefit once she got political and endorsed Barack Obama in 2008.

 

“I will say the Tom Hanks phenomena has, I would say, gone the way of Oprah before Oprah went the way of Oprah,” Stu said.

 

“It's too bad, because I like Tom Hanks,” Glenn said.

 

“He's gone from TV comedian to comedic actor, you know, really respected comedic actor to really respected film artist to, you know, this piece,” Glenn added.

 

Glenn did, however, say that people should to stop looking to artists to give them political advice. He said that they are usually ones to lead people down the path to socialism and communism, only to be the ones who first fall victim to the machine once it is in place.

 

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
