Glenn’s take on the latest birther claims

[gbtvembed content_id="2154281"]

The birthers are back. Why? Yesterday 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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
