Obama advisor continues to spread Romney lies in front of impotent media

The White House has pulled out all the stops in their efforts to defeat Mitt Romney. They've used some odd fundraising tactics, like asking people to donate to the campaign in lieu of wedding gifts, and now they are running campaign ads with blatant lies in them. The lies are so bad that they've been debunked by multiple sources like factcheck.org and PolitiFact. But when Obama advisor Robert Gibbs was grilled on the ads, he double downed on the lies.

Mediaite reported, "On CNN’s State of the Union today, Candy Crowley grilled Obama campaign advisor and former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on a recent attack ad released hitting Mitt Romney for outsourcing. Crowley ran the ad, pointing out that The Washington Post rated it false (“four Pinocchios”), and challenged Gibbs to explain why this is still being used as a line of attack against Romney."

Watch:

In the video, Crowley asked Gibbs, "...There's no evidence here that any of the fact check organizations have found that, A, he outsourced jobs or was president of Bain when that happened and, B, that he's done anything illegal. You've had a lot of advice from folks, Democrats saying get off of this particular Bain thing. There's obviously some polling that shows, in fact, there's ‑‑ it's having some effect on some of the battleground states. But why keep on it?"

Gibbs responded to the questioning by asking why Romney hasn't released tax forms for the past few years and wondered why he kept money in Swiss bank accounts. However, when Crowley asked if he was implying that Romney had done anything illegal he could only respond "Nobody knows".

Glenn said there were a few key things to take away from this confrontation.

First, Crowley said that these attacks on Romney/Bain are hurting the candidate in some swing states. However, the attacks are all lies, showing the administration doesn't care about the truth but rather only care about what people will assume is truth in swing states.

"The polling numbers are showing that this attack on Romney is working in some swing states. That's all they care about: Some swing states. This is not a president who is the president of the United States. He is the president of some swing states. He is a president of coalitions," Glenn said.

"This is not the uniter we were promised. This is the divider we all feared," he added.

Second, the administration doesn't care if these attacks are based in truth or not. Even liberal organizations and media are pointing out the lies.

"You'll notice they don't care. How many times does this have to be pointed out? Factcheck.org is a liberal organization. It's not a conservative organization. It's a liberal organization. Same thing with the Washington Post. Washington Post is not a conservative newspaper. It is a liberal newspaper," Glenn said.

"(The White House) know that the Washington Post only matters to the liberal elite, only matters to the media elite, but the media doesn't matter to the American people anymore. Only the stuff that punches through - if you say a lie loud enough and long enough, people start to believe it," Glenn said. "Most Americans don't want to hear that their president is a liar. Most Americans don't want to hear that their president possibly is on the wrong side. Most Americans don't want to hear that their president is a Marxist. So they will avoid those things at all costs."

"The reason why they don't want to hear this is because we as Americans tend to see ourselves in others. We tend to see the highest possibility. We still respect the president of the United States. Even if we disagree with him, we still respect that office," Glenn continued. "We don't think that other people are actually trying to destroy us. We don't think people are capable of that. And so we don't want to hear that our president is a liar because we don't think our president could be a liar. Even though we've all had proof president after president after president that they are just like us: They do lie."

Glenn said that its that belief in the inherent goodness of others and trust in the office of the President that allows people like Gibbs to blatantly lie to the American people.

"They know that the Washington Post doesn't matter. hey know that Candy Crowley, she's nothing. They know that she has no credibility compared to the office of the president of the United States. They have no credibility. They know that NBC doesn't have any credibility. They know how you feel about the press. All they're doing is confirming it."

"(The media) have gotten so deeply in bed, they discredited themselves over and over and over again and he's been there helping them, rewarding them, warning them that if they don't discredit themselves, in so many words, warning them that if they don't play ball, they'll be done, too. And all the while we've been ringing the bell."

"If the Washington Post would have had real journalists in there, if the Washington Post would have put Woodward and Bernstein in a year ago, year and a half ago to explain and to expose what this government was doing on both sides of the aisle, the Washington Post would make a difference today. If they were angry or not, it wouldn't matter. But it doesn't anymore. Gone are the days of Woodward and Bernstein. And they did it to themselves."

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
