Obama: You can’t make it in America

On radio this morning, Glenn played this gem of a statement from President Obama’s campaign speech yesterday, where he basically said that people can’t make it in America.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And so the question in this election is which way do we go? Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared, or do we go backward to the same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.

I believe we have to go forward. I believe we've got to keep working to create an America where no matter who you are, no matter what you look like, no matter where you come from, no matter what your last name is, no matter who you love you can make it here if you try.

“I wish we had that kind of America,” Pat sighed in response to Obama’s remarks.

According to the President, we don’t live in a country that affords the equal opportunity to succeed. But not to worry, his new ‘forward moving’ vision of shared prosperity will fix that. On second thought, his vision really isn’t all that new – it sounds an awful lot like the vision of the Soviet Union, but I digress.

“Don't you wish we had a place where a guy with a funny sounding first name and last name, who, when the country is at war with Muslim extremists, the guy named Hussein can be elected,” Glenn asked. “And he's trying to say we need to create an America where we can be different? You're the president of the United States. We’re already in that America, man! We're already in that America.”

When you look at Obama’s personal history, you have to wonder how this guy could ever say that people can’t make it in America.

“And who could possibly write this,” Glenn asked. “I mean besides Bill Ayers, who could possibly write this and say the American people would believe that a guy with Tata the monkey, Lolo the stepfather, the Communist father from Kenya, the mother who grew up as a socialist, the mentor who is a Communist, the guy who was completely broke, didn't even touch mainland ground here in America until he was 18, then somehow or another miraculously went to the best schools, schools that you'll never go to, schools that I never went to, go to the best schools in America, apparently for free, got that all done, would become president of the United States. By the way, did I mention he was black? And then say, ‘You can't make it in America.’”

“How do you say that with a straight face? How are you that guy with that story and you say these things? How,” Pat asked.

As ludicrous as this seems, it all comes back to this: President Obama and the people he surrounds himself with are looking to fundamentally transform the United States. In their minds no one has ‘made it’ until all things are equal, and another Obama term will be another step in this direction. Take that with you to the voting booths this November.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
