The Obama lies continue: I’m not running up debts

Today’s Obama fact/lie of the day comes straight from the President himself.

President Obama came out yesterday and, with a straight face, praised his administration and Democrats for being fiscally responsible, while accusing Republicans of being out-of-control spenders.

On radio this morning, Glenn played portions of a speech the President gave yesterday in Newton, Iowa:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Now, we all know how difficult these past few years have been for the country. Iowa has actually done a little better than some other states, but it's still been tough. And after the worst recession of our lifetimes, it's going to take some time for the economy to fully recover -- more time than a lot of us would like. And we're still facing some headwinds, like the situation in Europe right now, which is having an impact on our economy.

But while there's certain economic developments we can't control, there are a bunch of things that we can control. There are plenty of steps that we can take right now – steps that we must take right no – to speed up this recovery and to create jobs, and to restore some of the financial security that a lot of families have lost. It's within our control to do all of that right now. But here's the thing – (applause.) It's true, we can make that difference.

The challenge we've got is that too many folks aren't on the same page. We've got too many of my dear Republican friends in Congress that have been standing in the way of some steps that we could take that would make a difference at the moment. Either they say they don't want to do anything at all, or they don't want to do it before the election, or they want to double down on some of the policies that didn’t work and helped to get us into this mess in the first place.

“Okay, stop for a second,” Glenn interjected.

“I just want to point out that his budget has failed every time with not a single Democrat vote. Not a single Democratic vote,” he continued. “The last time that it went through – the Democrats are the ones standing in the way of his budget and his budgetary ideas. That’s why we don’t have a budget. We haven’t had one for three years. I’m sorry, it was the Democrats. The Republicans couldn’t even stop any of the legislation up until two years ago – couldn’t stop any of it.”

Glenn also played a clip from a speech the President gave on Wednesday at a Colorado fundraiser:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I don't know how they’ve [Republicans] been bamboozling folks into thinking that they are the responsible, fiscally disciplined party. They run up these wild debts and then when we take over we have to clean it up. And then they point and say, ‘Look how irresponsible they [Democrats] are.’ Look at facts, look at the numbers.

“Stop, stop. I want you to play it again. I want you to play it again,” Glenn responded. “I want you to hear the realization of the people who are in the audience when they say, ‘He runs up this wild debt.’ You can hear the room feel like, ‘Oh, crap. Not really, we... everybody knows. Everybody knows. It's been $5 trillion. Everybody knows.’”

“That’s amazing,” Pat responded. “There is no response to that – except nervous laughter.”

One of the main problems with the President and this administration is that they refuse to take responsibility for their actions, regardless of what the facts say. Time and time again, his actions have demonstrated that he will not work with those who disagree with him.

“He doesn't like disagreement,” Glenn said. “That's the problem. You go his way or you hit the highway. The president is not – when he says, ‘My good dear friends across the aisle,’ he doesn't mean a word of that. He's identified them as an enemy.”

When it comes to enemies in this country, it’s probably safe to say those undisciplined and irresponsible Republicans should be the least of the President’s worries.

“Mr. President, I believe the only one that is an enemy to the Constitution and to the capitalist system are those who are trying to fundamentally transform the capitalist system and our Constitution,” Glenn said.

“You, sir, have gotten into bed with people who have called for radical revolution, who have called for an end of the Constitution,” he continued. “There's only one enemy here, sir, and it's not the Democrats, it's not the Republicans. It's Marxists who want to end the Constitution and transform America into something it never was. Now, if you happen to fall into that category, well, then maybe that's a conversation we should have. I'm certainly not putting you in that category. Your actions put you in that category.”

The United States is headed toward disaster, and since the government has shown no real leadership, it will be up to the people of this country to stand up and work together. Individual responsibility and a commitment to the ideals this country stands for will be the key to getting America back on track.

“I'm telling you if a president will start saying, if leaders will start stepping to the plate, if states will start making sure that their businesses are protected, money and business will come flocking to America because there is no place stable. There's no place stable,” Glenn said.

“We must – we must build that beachhead and be stable, and even if it's one business or one community or one state, that's what has to be done. And people from all over the world, the dreamers, the entrepreneurs, the sane people, the ones who aren't saying, ‘Well, you know, gee, ATMs really have hurt our economy.’ What! Those people, you can live – you can live wherever you want. You got the whole world to pick from. You have the whole world to pick from.”

“You want to do business,” Glenn asked. “Good. Let's start working together. Because it ain't going to be fixed in Washington, gang.”

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
