The Communist reveals the man behind Obama's beliefs

Mercury Ink’s latest book, The Communist by Paul Kengor, came out today, and the book exposes the man who Barack Obama referred to as his mentor 22 times (!) in his book, Dreams from My Father, Frank Marshall Davis.

“This book is unbelievable,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “It's off the charts. We learned stuff that we didn't know. And we’ve spent four years – this is our job. It’s really amazing what you will learn in this book.”

Glenn played audio of Kengor describing the book this morning. Kengor explains that any biographer knows that the first thing you do is look to the mentors – look to the people had a great influence. In Obama’s case, the mentor in question is Frank Marshall Davis, a journalist and member of the Communist Party USA.

Kengor uncovered a tremendous amount in his research – research that shockingly no one in the media ever bothered to report. One of the more noteworthy revelations come from Davis’s own newspaper columns. He was editor-in-chief of a major American Communist publication, and he regularly used words like ‘Change’ and ‘Fundamental Transformation.’ Sound familiar?

This man was so radical his FBI file was nearly 600 pages, and included a copy of his Communist Party card. He was number 47544. But again, no one in the media could find this information?

While you can’t really say exactly what Obama learned from Davis, it is no coincidence that Obama had men like Davis in his life. “It's not a coincidence I think that is his mentor had been a card carrying member of the Communist party of America,” Kengor said.

For anyone who wants to go deeper and really understand where the President developed his ideology, this book gets to the bottom of it, and makes you wonder how we could possibly elect a President we know nothing about.

“You're going to feel betrayed,” Glenn said. “Not betrayed by the President, but betrayed by the media. The media has been treasonous. Truly treasonous. I don't know what the future holds. But at some point you have to look at what the media has done. And ask yourself what did they know and when did they know it. This book proves treason.”

It’s hard to imagine the media was unable to find this information – after all the FBI has the guy’s Communist card on file – but it is all too possible that media simply ignored this information, which is the true tragedy in this situation.

“Frank Marshall Davis is who Obama’s mother sent him back to be with and learn from. This is it. You'll see him,” Glenn concluded. “This book is not – by the way, it is not about Barack. This is about his mentor. But when you read it you will see this is Barack Obama.”

Kengor will discussing The Communist on Sean Hannity's Fox News program tonight at 9PM EST, and don't miss Glenn's interview with Kengor on tomorrow's radio program!

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
