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."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
