The War on Moms

While the left continues to accuse the right of waging a “war on women,” the Obama Administration is implementing their own “war on women” by, as Glenn put it, “treating them like morons.”

Yesterday, Democratic talking head Hilary Rosen went on CNN and basically said that because Ann Romney was a stay at home mom, “she’s never worked a day in her life,” and therefore doesn’t have any credibility regarding economic issues.

Here is her statement from CNN last night:

“With respect to economic issues, I think, actually, Mitt Romney is right, that ultimately women care more about the economic well-being of their family, and the like. But he doesn't connect on that issue either. What you have is Mitt Romney running around the country saying my wife tells me what women really care about are economic issues. When I listen to my wife that's what I'm hearing. Guess what, his wife has actually never worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the economic issues that -- a majority of issues that women are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send to them to school, and how we worry about their future."

Glenn couldn’t help but point out that Ann Romney has not only raised five children, those children were all boys – not exactly an easy task.

Stu took note of how little attention has been paid to the second part of Rosen’s offensive comment. “She has never put thought into the economic future of her children.”

“That’s a shot at being rich,” Pat said, also questioning how anyone could not be aware that most everyone is concerned with the future of their children, regardless of their economic situation.

“I bet wealthy conservatives are more concerned about their children's economic future than liberals are,” Glenn said. “Because conservatives are more likely to say, pull yourself up by your bootstraps this is my money I made it. You go make it on your own. I'll help you, but you go make it on your own. You're not going to live off daddy. The Kennedys live off daddy, and granddaddy, and gran-gran-grandaddy. Limousine liberals, that's what it is. They pass it from generation to generation, and they just become these really dependent people.

This always seems to be how the left exposes who they really are. They point their finger at the right, and accuse them of exactly what they themselves are guilty of. “This is who Hilary Rosen, and people like her are,” said Pat.

For those that are thinking that this isn’t really relevant to the Obama campaign, he can’t control every talking head out supporting him on the campaign trail, they may want to consider Hilary Rosen’s connections to this administration, like the fact that she’s made multiple visits to the White House.

“She’s been to the White House numerous times,” Stu said. “In fact the White House logs, according to National Review, say that Hilary Rosen has visit the White House thirty-five times.”

Thirty-five White House visits may not seem like a lot for a President who has been in office for over three years, but compare that with General Petraeus, who is in charge of a war operation in Afghanistan that has been going on for about a decade, and you may notice a problem.

General Petraeus has been to the White House nine times.

“So Hilary Rosen has been to the White House 35 times, and General Petraeus has been there nine times,” Stu said. “Here's the guy who's bailed out this President [General Petraeus] when he was in a really tough spot. He came in and took one for the team, stepped up for his country and didn't care about politics – and bailed out this President in these wars. He gets nine visits, and Hilary Rosen, the “hey, the stay at moms don't work” lady gets 35.”

“Hey ladies, how are you feeling about ‘stay at home moms have never worked a day in their life?” Glenn asked.

Rosen’s comments fit the pattern of the left. Glenn pointed out that unless you see the world their way, you’re going to be demonized. The left will find something wrong with your lifestyle or ideology to make what you’re doing seem worthless - notice the deafening silence of groups like the National Organization for Women.

Ann Romney doesn't seem to need the defense of any organization. She quickly came out and defended herself yesterday by joining Twitter (@AnnDRomney) and releasing a statement saying, "I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys. Believe me, it was hard work." This started a firestorm on twitter, and had the left backpedaling so fast they couldn't help but trip all over each other.

“I think I like Ann more than I like Mitt,” Glenn said. “She’s a pretty strong woman.”

Glenn noted that she suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, something the liberal media would have quickly pointed out if a conservative had attack a mother of five for staying home and raising her children. Ann is also a breast cancer survivor.

“Will the press even do anything about it?” Glenn asked.

“Of course not,” Pat said.

“This is a bad one though,” Stu said. “As you're trying to pitch your sell to women across the United States, you're this insulting? This is the attitude they've carried throughout the campaign. They always demean the stay-at-home mom. It’s always a secondary choice and something they don’t like. And here it is, in it's most overt stance. And immediately the administration comes out and says, well this is just an advisor. We don't agree with these comments.’ Really?”

Stu pointed out the hypocrisy of this White House that didn’t seem to have any problem coming out and exploiting Romney’s advisor who made the ‘etch-a-sketch’ comment. However, when it is one of the Obama Administration’s advisors, the media backs off quietly.

This wasn’t a comment about one person running for President, this was a comment that belittled women all across this country doing the best they can to raise their kids and take care of their families.

“You want to talk about a war on women? Not only did they say this to Ann Romney. But they took everybody that works at home, and everybody who is home schooling,” Glenn said. “Every woman who is strong and stays at home, they're now adding on top of it the real war on women, which is the subtle war of the demeaning and the degrading of those women and their choices.”

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
