Glenn to Obama: "I don't think that you really understand America, sir"

UPDATE: Glenn also addressed this topic on GBTV Tuesday night - WATCH:

Original:

Mr. President,

You gave it a college try.  You tried.  You did.  You've done everything you could in your power, and then beyond your power, beyond your executive power, you have done more than any President should be allowed to do.  In fact they are not allowed to do the things that you've done but you've done them anyway. And still we see the results.

See you're going after the money or after the bodies of voters.  Sometimes literally the ones in the ground.  But that's not what America is.

I don't think that you really understand America, sir.  You understood two words last time that really kind of describe America but there has to be something behind that and it's hope and change.

Hope is an American trait.  We always have hope for a brighter tomorrow.  We do.  That is an American trait. And that helped you last time.  Change is also an American trait.  Nobody really likes change but we are the ones who have changed the world. We are looking for new ways to do things.  The system is broken, and we knew that, and you said 'I'm going to change the system.'

But you changed it in a way that is fundamentally un-American.  You changed it in a way that is all about corruption, all about money, and all about special interests. That wasn't the change that we sought. That wasn't the change that the people on the left sought. I'm not just talking about the Tea Party or the right or the Republicans - I'm talking about the left.  I'm talking about the people who are just good Democrats.

We tried change.  We tried your hope and change. And in fact it was all of us wanted hope, and all of us wanted change.  And darn near all of us - even if we voted against you and were against you - on election day, the day after we kind of licked our wounds a bit, and we all most of us did say it is cool to have an African-American President.

We had a moment where maybe the left would finally recognize that America isn't racist because you couldn't have been elected if we were a racist nation.  You couldn't have been elected by minorities.  You needed the white people to vote for you and they did in droves.  Many us, even if we didn't vote for you, were happy that we sent a message to the rest of the world that American is not 1950 America.

It was cool to see a black man in office.  Just as some day it will be cool a woman or a man who isn't embarrassed by his wheelchair.  Maybe even some day it will be cool to see a member of an easy to pick on faith be President of the United States.

But what happened here Mr. President, is America's hopes for change were not realized this time.  No matter which side of the aisle we were on.

I don't know if you've seen this nut the left - the people that you helped you so much all the way along and bashed the Tea Party and everybody else - they're worse now on you than the Tea Party was ever was a few years ago.  That's why you're having trouble raising money for your reelection. Because the people who supported you no longer support you.  And that's not the Republicans' fault.  That is the fault of people like you and people on your team deciding to put Big Labor and big corporations ahead of individuals who believed in you, who went door-to-door campaigning for you.

See politicians on both sides - it's not just you Mr. President, it happens all the time - politicians always forget that it really is about the individual.  In America, that's what it is.  The individual. And the parties and the politicians on both sides always forget that.

The American dream is about one person making up their mind and then making a difference.  It's not about a huge government.  It's not about huge corporations.  It's not about shadowy organization.  It's not about that. It's not about donors making a difference.  It's about individuals.

So Mr. President, I'm guessing that Americans are going to keep their $3 especially because after inflating my tires and everybody else inflating their tires we still have a hard time paying 104% more per gallon for gasoline.

We'll use that $3 to buy the fuel it will take to get to the polls.  And we'll stop off at an elderly neighbors or someone who can't drive and take them to the polls as well. And there we'll stand side by side in a school or gym along with the rich and poor the white and black the young and the old.  Democrat and Republican.  Americans all, and we will wait quietly in that line.  Not as an collective but as individuals.

Once again we'll cast our vote for change, and we'll do so with hope.

That's the great thing about America.  There's always hope.  Tomorrow always holds a new promise.

America really is an exceptional place.  And here's evidence of it:  No matter what has happened in the last 10 years, believe it or not, I still have hope we're going to find a group of decent people to go to Washington to represent us.  Maybe it will be this election.  And maybe this guy who's going to replace you will keep more of his promises to unite us, and bring us together and move us forward than you did.

But here's where the real hope comes from: If he doesn't we'll gather in our gyms and schools again and we'll send him home as well.

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.
