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.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
