Media reacts to Romney’s ‘gaffe-tastic’ overseas trip

In light of Mitt Romney’s overseas tour the media has taken to pointing out the ‘gaffe-tastic’ nature of Romney’s trip, while reminding us that whenever President Obama goes overseas he is ‘gaffe-free’ and ‘picture-perfect.’

“Let’s move on to our 1984 world where two plus two equals five kind of ‑‑ kind of, you know, media formula, where nothing makes sense anymore,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Let's go to Mitt Romney, his overseas trip, has been described by the press as gaffe‑tastic, gaffe‑filled, and his mouth runneth over.  Hmmm. Of course, when Barack Obama went overseas and really ever since, he was gaffe‑free and picture‑perfect.”

So let’s take a look at some of the horrors that show just how embarrassing Romney’s trip was.

For starters, he had the nerve to suggest that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

“Hey, Jeffy, according to the map, according to the location of the capital according to the location of the prime minister's office, according to the location of all political offices, where would the capital of Israel be,” Glenn asked. “It’s like saying, ‘I'm not going to tell you where the capital of the United States is.’”

And we can’t forget about how embarrassing it was when Romney explained how cultural differences between Israel and Palestine could be a factor in why Israel’s economy is so much stronger than Palestine.

“He mentioned their respective GDPs as an example. Romney cited Israel's per capita GDP at $21,000, Palestine's at 10,000.  It's actually more like 31,000 to 1500. So it's not two times the GDP. It's closer to 30 times, far more dramatic than even he indicated. If you were talking about that's his gaffe, okay, I'd be with you. But that's not what they were doing,” Glenn said.

Let us not forget how President Obama and his administration have handled questions about Israel situation as of late. No one with half a brain would call it picture-perfect. One day the President comes out in front of the AIPAC and says that Israel’s security is “sacrosanct,” and Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel. The next day he says:

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  This was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech and we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given.  The point we were simply making was is that we don't want barbed wire running through Jerusalem similar to the way it was prior to the '67 war. We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps. So that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.

“What? You don't think you is... was... make any sense. But don't worry, none of that is gaffe‑tastic, gaffe‑filled, gaffe‑alicious. It's sheer unadulterated perfection personified,” Glenn joked.

The bias is bordering on laughable at this point and further proves that the media is becoming more and more obsolete.

“The media is irritating but irrelevant. It's like a little gnat. After a while that's really irritating.  But here's what happens. Welcome to GBTV. Welcome to talk radio. Welcome to the Internet. Welcome to the 9/12 project. Welcome to the Tea Party. Welcome to Freedom Works. Welcome to America,” Glenn concluded.

“We are the ultimate flyswatter. They're irrelevant. Let them rant and rave. Let them dig their own grave. This November Americans will pick the man who best represents American principles and values.”

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."
