Glenn: Secret Service scandal latest in bizarre string of events in Obama Administration

[gbtvembed content_id="20668867"]

Have there been things that you’ve seen the past few years that you never thought you’d see? For instance, did you ever think the Secret Service would be wrapped up in a sex scandal? Or how about a President that passed judgment before all the facts came in? Glenn spent some time on radio this morning wondering why these once unthinkable things are suddenly happening.

“Can I ask a quick question. Has anybody, has anybody ever seen the Secret Service with hookers before?” Glenn asked as he opened the show.

Over the weekend, news broke that the Secret Service members advancing President Obama’s trip to Colombia were engaged in heavy drinking, partying, and prostitution. The scandal broke when one agent supposedly refused to pay $47 to the prostitute who had stayed at the hotel overnight.

CBS News reports:

President Obama says he wants a thorough investigation of a Secret Service scandal connected to his weekend visit to Colombia.

Nearly a dozen agents are in trouble, along with five members of the U.S. military.

The agents were in Colombia preparing for the president's trip when they were accused of hiring prostitutes.

It's been an embarrassment for the White House and the Secret Service.

Eleven members of the elite agency are now on administrative leave.

As Mr. Obama was wrapping up his trip Sunday, he called for a thorough and rigorous investigation.

"If it turns out," he said, "that some of the allegations that have been made in the press are confirmed, then, of course I'll be angry."

“Eleven elite presidential advance team Secret Service members? Really?”

“Never seen the Secret Service nailed for prostitution. Haven't seen that one. That's a new one to me,” Glenn said.

But is this just the latest in a string of baffling events in the Obama Presidency?

How about the White House party crashers who showed up uninvited to a state dinner and got their picture taken with several key officials - including the President!

“I've never seen anybody actually, what, climb the fence, get in through the front door, get past the Secret Service, get into the state dinner and hang out with the president. Never have I seen that before.”

“ I'm just seeing a lot of things I just never thought I would see before and they seem to be with the Secret Service. Has anybody else, anybody else noticed some things that maybe ‑‑ is it just me? I think we should start compiling a list because I'll bet you we're going to start finding patterns here of things we've never seen before,” Glenn added.

But is it just part of a larger pattern of conflict between the White House and law enforcement?

“I've never seen the president of the United States ever say the police acted stupidly. Have you?” Glenn said.

Glenn went through several cases where President Obama passed judgment on police before all the facts came in. He used the example of the Trayvon Martin case where Obama weighed in before Zimmerman had been charged.

“I mean, probably once every couple of months I see something happen that I never thought I would see and they don't make sense. And nobody really talks about them in a way like, ‘Oh, that's pretty shocking.’” Glenn said.

The list of examples grew to include the credit downgrade of the United States and the returning of the Winston Churchill bust that had been in the White House. Both events were treated as if they were not big deals.

“When is anyone going to actually notice these things? When, when is anyone going to start to say, ‘Hey, something's dramatically wrong’?” he added.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

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.
