Why are leftists complaining about Obama?

Not one to defend anything that comes out of the Obama White House, Glenn started the radio program this morning coming to the President’s defense – kind of.

With all of the progressive policies the President has put forth these last three years, it is hard to believe that many leftists and progressives continue to express dismay with the President’s job performance. After all, Obama has done things no progressive president ever has – passed government healthcare and so much more.

So what’s the problem?

“I honestly don't understand what the left wants from this President. Let me play devil's advocate, and I may mean that literally, and argue for the President here for a second,” Glenn said.

“If you are a Marxist, if you are a revolutionary, if you're a communist, really, if you're an anarchist, if you're an extreme leftist, if you're somebody who doesn't like the system as it is on the left, what more could this President do for you,” he asked.

Once you begin to run through the list of everything Barak Obama has ‘accomplished’ in his first term, it’s difficult to find anything that would be construed as a ‘failure’ by the left.

Just a quick look at President Obama’s first three years reveals he has:

- Passed universal health care

- Ended the war on terror

- Pacified the labor unions

- Lead the largest financial reform in U.S. history

- Created the Credit Protection Agency

- Changed foreign constitutions in support abortion

- Given NATO a leading role over the United States

- Appointed literal socialists, literal communists, literal revolutionaries to high office

- Supported anarchists, communists, and revolutionaries by supporting Occupy Wall Street

- Made it near criminal to have a differing point of view

- Put in place more regulations than could ever be undone

- Allowed the Department of Justice to stop a bid to halt illegal voting

- Controlled what food we can and cannot eat through his wife’s anti-obesity initiatives

- Given the Environmental Protection Agency the ability to regulate carbon emissions

- Doubled the amount of people on food stamps in three and half years

- Enacted a stimulus policy, which blindly threw billions of dollars at green energy companies among other things

Oh and one more minor achievement: this President has overseen the fundamental transformation of the United States America.

“I'd like to hear from you on what did we miss because we sat around this morning and we went through this list. And I'll bet you we missed over half of what this President has done,” Glenn said. “It's overwhelming what this President has done. He has overseen the fundamental transformation of the United States of America. He's literally rewriting history in real time.”

This list just scratches the surface, and yet the left is still not satisfied with the President’s job. Ironically, it would seem their unhappiness stems from the same place conservatives’ does – President Obama has not been truthful.

“I know you know the guy's a Marxist, period. He's not a communist. He's a Marxist. He wants to fundamentally transform the United States of America. He is more Hugo Chavez than George Washington,” Glenn said.

“We all know that. And we know he knows that, and we know he's telling us lies, but I contend so does the left,” he continued. “The left looks at him and they're seeing him – they’re seeing him cozying up with Wall Street and they're saying, ‘Wait a minute. Why are you cozying up with Wall Street? What happened to you?’”

“They know he's lying, and they're angry he won't come out and admit it because there's nothing to be ashamed of. We're all socialists now. We're all Marxist now. Why can't you be the President of the France? He won on the Marxist platform. He came out and admitted it. Why don't you admit you've been hanging out with the Democratic Socialists of America? We've got all the evidence. We've seen you at their conferences. Why won't you admit it? They don't like it.”

Had the President been open with his ideology and accomplished all of these things with his intentions clearly stated, the left would be proud to call him their leader, but that has not been the case with this administration.

“They think he's a liar, just like we think he's a liar,” Glenn concluded. “He's in trouble. He's in trouble because our side, we don't like him. We think he's a liar. We vote him out of office. Communists, revolutionaries, and anarchists, they think you're a liar, you betray the revolution, it usually doesn't end well. The President is in trouble.”

“They don't trust him. The same problem that the left has with the President of the United States is the problem we have. It's the same problem. Nobody trusts him because you don't really know who he is.”

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
