Glenn’s take on the latest birther claims

[gbtvembed content_id="2154281"]

The birthers are back. Why? Yesterday Breitbart.com released a biography used by Barack Obama’s literary agent from 1991 describing him as ‘born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii,’ through 2007 when it was corrected to say ‘born in Hawaii.’ This morning, Glenn gave his take on what has been released and the reaction to it thus far.

Glenn, who has been pretty vocal about his opposition to the ‘birtherism’ movement since its start, wasn’t swayed in his opinion by the release of this document. Glenn saw the length this document was allowed to run inaccurately as more of an Elizabeth Warren type of move, where progressives try and make themselves more appealing by the the left's love of multiculturalism. Obama was pumping up his ethnic connections for personal gain, probably unaware that his short term goal for recognition in 1991 would come back to haunt him among the birther movement.

For the past couple of weeks Glenn has been breaking news on Barack Obama’s “fairy tale life” and the inconsistencies in the stories he tells about it. “I think this verifies another piece of the storyline of what this guy will say and do,” Glenn said of the news that broke this morning. “He’s Elizabeth Warren to the thousandth power.”

Glenn explained that while he does not have a literary agent, he does have a speaking agent. Every year they publish a booklet, similar to the one that was released with President Obama’s biography, that goes out to all of the people, corporations, etc. that are looking for speakers.

“I know that if somebody saw ‘Glenn Beck born in Bonne, Germany,’ we wouldn’t have called and gotten it pulled. It probably would have run for a year, but it wouldn’t have run for sixteen consecutive years,” Glenn said.

Glenn compared this to the Elizabeth Warren story that is currently in the news where she claimed she was a Native American for ten years. They think anything that is radical, diverse, international, etc. is “cool.” “That’s absolutely how they are. It’s a badge of honor if she’s a Native American,” Glenn said.

“Barack Obama wrote about this in in his book. He used the name Barack because it was cool,” Stu said.

“It goes back to what we've been saying the last couple of weeks. The guy's life story is fiction.  It’s fiction,” Glenn said. “He'll create anything he has to be create depending on who he's with, what he’s doing, so he can fit in, and he can be the star. Is that unreasonable to believe?”

“Not at all,” Stu responded. “Elizabeth Warren is the perfect example.”

To further make the point that he doesn’t believe this document does anything to negate the president’s birth certificate or any other document that confirms his birth in Hawaii, Glenn gave the example of his Italian in-laws. Glenn’s wife’s parents are Italian.

“I'm willing to give which they would never do for me.  I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt because I have heard my in laws, I have heard Tania say ‘I'm from Italy; my whole family is from Italy.’ No you're not. Your grandparents but your mom and dad weren't. Your grandparents were. I understand it in context I understand it. They are from Italy. What?  I mean that's the way that some people talk in the right context. Now will they ever be this kind to me? No.”

In the end though, who really benefits from this story? Barack Obama! All it does is continue to take attention away from the economy and the destructive path he has put this country on. The supporters of the birther theory are used to make conservatives as a whole look radical and conspiratorial, and it hurts the efforts to vote him out of office in 2012. Take the biography as an example of his efforts to appear "cool" back in 1991, not as a missing key in proving he wasn't a natural born citizen.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
