Obama Fact of the Day: Carney says Romney’s credentials “deserve some scrutiny”

Today’s Obama Fact of the Day comes courtesy of Press Secretary Jay Carney, who took it upon himself to attack those evil private equity firms.

On radio this morning, Glenn played a some  audio from yesterday’s White House press conference.

To begin, let’s here Carney’s thoughts on why it is okay to keep attacking private equity firms:

CARNEY: The experience he had as a community organizer and a State senator and then as a United States senator were the experience that he believed helped qualify him for the presidency, he made the case and – that that record...

REPORTER: He didn't do it as a community organizer. He did it as a President. My question is: Why are you saying that he would run things...

CARNEY: Because the governor himself – because the governor himself has said as much. He's not running, that I can tell, on his record or that you can, because he hasn't on his record in Massachusetts. He's running as a businessman who can do for America what he did in private equity and that, I think – I think Americans would expect that that – credential deserves some scrutiny.

In that case, doesn’t President Obama’s record deserve some scrutiny as well?

Glenn moved on to the audio clip of Carney answering a question about the how hypocritical it is for the President to accept money from the leaders of the private equity firms his campaign deaminizes:

REPORTER: Another question I've heard asked a lot about this is, you know, isn't it hypocritical for the President to attack Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital and then hold fundraisers and take donations from private...

CARNEY: The issue – those folks are not running for President. They do not believe that their experience in their line of work wholly qualifies them to sit in the oval office and be commander in chief and make the kinds of decisions on the economy that a President must make. He appreciates support from Americans from every walk of life and from every area of the economy and as you know, I'm sure you've reported on it, the – you know, the fact of the matter is the President's support as demonstrated by contributions is demonstrative – comes demonstratively from small – people who contribute just a little bit. They're not from huge donors at all. For more details on that, I'm sure the campaign can help you fill…

So there you have it, yet another example of how deep the hypocrisy runs in the Obama White House.

“I don't care if you're a Democrat or Republican. It doesn't matter, if you're honest, you can absolutely tell that this is, as promised, the most transparent administration ever in the history of the United States, transparent – transparently lying,” Glenn said in response to Carney’s comments.

“It is so clear that these people are just full-fledged hypocrites and liars. He was just lying about everything he was just asked. There is no truth left in these people. The truth for us to survive as a nation needs to live and thrive inside of us. Help spread the truth.”

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
