What 4 things does Obama control that will affect the election?

How does this administration really believe that it can win in November? It’s as if they know something that we don’t know, along with a few things they wish we didn’t know, Glenn explained to listeners this morning – like a George Soros meeting in Florida on how to defeat Mitt Romney.

“There’s also something else, and every president controls three of these things, but Barack Obama has added a fourth,” Glenn said. “If you’re really good at playing ‘the game,’ this is how you win. This is how a president wins reelection.”

The first thing that Barack Obama controls is the calendar. Glenn pointed to the current debate about student loan interest rates as an example. The White House set up a win-win situation – either we cost ourselves close to a billion dollars in interests that would be lost and add another free giveaway, or the Republicans look like they’re against students, college, children and learning. And, they time this all to come up right before the election, setting up the opposing side to look bad.

The second thing that the president controls is events. “In other words, no matter what's going on in the world, he can say, "Hey, look who's going to look who's going to Afghanistan today."  And no matter what else is happening, no matter what the topic is, he now controls the news.  He now can put an event in that everybody's got to pack up their crap and get onto a plane and go over to Afghanistan, and he controls the news cycle for at least a day,” Glenn explained.

The military is the third thing. Glenn explained that while he didn’t believe this, many people accused Bill Clinton of doing this. However, Barack Obama has practically been dancing all over the grave of Osama bin Ladin. His death has been used in campaign ads, campaign speeches, etc.

“So he controls the military and any military operation,” Glenn explained. “That's a big deal, especially when a country is at war, or the world is on the precipice. What happens to a presidential rating if all of a sudden we've got to go to war or something happens overseas, and we've got to look tough?”

The final thing that Barack Obama controls, and has never been controlled by a United States – the press. “The president has never controlled the press, but this one does. This one has them so spooked, so mesmerized, and so in the bag that he can pretty much count on the press to help him in every possible way,” Glenn said.

“So the things that you have to be aware of with this president and really any president, but this one especially when it comes to this time in an election, the things that he can control: the calendar, spontaneous quote/unquote events, the military, and the press,” Glenn said.

“Mitt Romney has a huge uphill battle, huge uphill battle and so do we. The thing that we talked about in our morning meeting today is how many people voted for Barack Obama that will not vote for him this time. He's lost a lot of people.”

President Obama has lost millions of voters that pulled the lever for him over ‘hope and change.’ “Every poll shows that,” Stu said. “He’s not going to get the same percentage, at least not at this point.”

“Hot many has he gained?” Glenn asked. “How many are like, ‘I voted for John McCain last time but I'm going to go for Barack Obama.  He's kind of changed my mind’.”

That answer is a fairly obvious ‘none,’ Glenn noted.  President Obama is still pulling from the same group of people, and many of his supporters are abandoning him. “So what is he going to do to win?” Glenn asked.

On top of the four things Glenn noted that the President controls, he also controls our perception of things.  Glenn noted what the administration is doing with jobless number. They pull the number from their computers, where they control what numbers are used in the equations.

“I mean, they control the stats and the way we look at stats, before it's given to the press.  Mitt Romney has got to get the people who didn't vote last time plus the people who did vote plus the ones that were so disenfranchised,” Glenn told listeners. “Those guys are going to be hard to get.”

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.
