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.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
