Obama: the 'Food Stamp President'?

President Obama likes to remind everyone that he is definitely NOT the ‘food stamp president.’

Forget the fact that food stamp usage has drastically increased under his administration – he is not promoting food stamp usage.

President Obama may not be the ‘food stamp president,’ but he is the president who has put out a massive advertising campaign to show people just how accessible food stamps are.

Glenn played the audio from one of the ads on radio this morning:

VOICE 1: I love taking my grandkids to the park, but if I want to keep up with those little bundles of energy, I have to stay healthy and eat right.  And that can be a real challenge.  But that's where food stamp benefits come in. They help me eat right when money's tight.

VOICE 2: Would you look at Margie. She looks amazing.

VOICE 1: Yes, she sure does.

VOICE 2: I wonder how she stays so fit. What's her secret?

VOICE 1: Well, she told me that food stamp benefits help her eat right and she stays active, too.

VOICE 2: Oh. I didn't know they helped people our age.

VOICE 1: Oh, food stamps help lots of people. People you know.

VOICE 2:  Wait. You, too?

VOICE 1:  Yes, I do.

“No! She's on them, too,” Glenn joked. “Everybody is on food stamps.  Well, gee, Marge, maybe I should be on food stamps.”

“How do you stay so young,” Pat asked. “Well, I eat right, exercise, and I use food stamps every day.”

“But he’s definitely not… he’s not the food stamp president,” Glenn responded.

While there is nothing wrong with people using food stamps as a last resort, encouraging the use of food stamps because it’s easier than ever to get approved for them takes the dangers of an entitlement society to a new level.

“There's nothing wrong ‑ if our folks are ‑ if our folks are struggling and there's nobody in the family to help them, that's what food stamps are for,” Glenn said. “For people who are really struggling and can't. But listen to this ad again. That's not what it is. This is like, ‘You know, sometimes I wet my pants.’ That's why there's Depends. I mean...”

“Do you get the impression after listening to that ad that the food actually tastes better if you purchase it with food stamps,” Stu asked.

“Marge is going, she's let herself go,” Glenn responded. “She was eating hot dogs, Twinkies and Doritos.”

“But now she's on food stamps,” Pat said. “But look how great she looks now. Now she's a fashion model.”

All kidding aside, it is incredible to think that a measure put in place to temporarily help people who are struggling is now being touted as a lifestyle choice.

“Here's an ad for people who are 70 years old who need to know about food stamps. We all know that food stamps is the, is the last thing you were taught to get onto. You were taught not to take charity from the government. You were taught to make it yourself,” Glenn concluded.

“And you know what? You have made it your whole life. You've worked hard. You've put money in. You did the right thing,” he continued. “And if times right now are too tight for you, this is exactly what this program was made for. Not deadbeats, not people who won't work, but people who can't or just can't make ends meet to be able to get the nutrition that they need to be a productive citizen.”

“Look at yourself in the mirror. Do you need them? Now, are you too proud to take them? If you need them, take them. You're exactly the person they're made for. That's the way it works.”

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
