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.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:
