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.

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
