Glenn: "Thank you Barack Obama"

President Obama has finally come out and decided he wants to talk about the economy. But rather than say the government needs to make tough choices and cut back on spending - he simply says "we" need to do better. He is clearly trying to put the blame at the feet of the American people rather than on his administration. After all, the American people need him and his big government programs. The American people need him to help make good choices. The American people even need him to tell them how often to eat ice cream. On radio this morning, Glenn played some of his latest comments and explains the choice the country is facing in just a few short months.

"The hypocrisy is unbearable with this guy," Glenn said.

President Obama became leader of the free world despite being born into a broken home, raised by grandparents, being mentored by Communists, and never having held a real job - the rest of the country needs big government to take care of them. President Obama believes that the the American people have to have government programs.

"Sadly when Obama says that Americans are tougher than whatever tough times bring us, what he really means is that the government is tougher," Glenn said.

Glenn said that Obama believes that "you can't make it without these government programs. You can't decide how much of a sundae to eat. You're not tough. You don't have control to say no to ice cream. How could you possibly say no to something tough?"

"This President gives me a reason to be committed to freedom every single day. I've never known my country better than I do because of Barack Obama. He forced me to learn about my country. He forced me to learn about progressivism. He forced me to look at what I really believe about Manifest Destiny. I didn't know about manifest Destiny other than what I learned in school - which is nothing. He forced me. I'm a better American today because of Barack Obama. I'm a more enlightened American because of Barack Obama. I'm a more charitable person today of Barack Obama. I'm a better entrepreneur today because of Barack Obama. I don't need a bailout. I got Barack Obama. He's the anchor around my neck. It forces me to be a stronger swimmer. It's fantastic," Glenn said.

"Thank you Barack Obama."

"I'm committed because I now know what I believe," Glenn said.

Glenn then asked the American people if they were ready to take their newfound strength and get the President out of the White House.

"Are you committed? Have you activated yourself. Are you registered to vote? Have you looked at your list of friends and said are they all registered to vote?"

"We've changed Mr. President. You've woken us up. We've actually looked. We've seen all of the things that your friends hate America for," Glenn said. "We've considered them carefully. We've put them into perspective. And we realized that sometimes anchors around our necks make us stronger swimmers."

"Others will try to divide. it's not going to work," Glenn said. "That's not what Americans are."

Let's show Barack Obama that being positive is in fashion. Demonstrate that positivity is alive and well in America by sending a true capitalist to Washington. Somebody that doesn't apologize for America and all of its deals."

"That's the real debate in America. Do you need somebody to help you because you're not capable of figuring out how many calories to eat? Are you so incapable you can't stop yourself from eating a sundae that the President of the United States the most powerful man in the world needs to use eating a sundae as a teaching moment for America?"

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
