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.”

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"
