Who misled their audience on GM - Glenn or President Obama?

Glenn is honest when he makes a mistake, so this morning on radio he wanted to make sure he corrected one that occurred yesterday.

After playing the audio below of President Obama, Glenn acknowledged that a serious error was made.

“When the American auto industry was on the brink of collapse, more than one million jobs at stake, Governor Romney said let's let Detroit go bankrupt. I said I believe in American workers, I believe in this American industry and now the American auto industry has come roaring back and GM's number one again.”

“You know, I said GM's not number one and, well, it's not number one,” he explained. “But we want to make sure that we don't mislead you on saying that GM was never not number one.”

Glenn went on to explain that, like they has assumed, Toyota is number one. They were number one before the bailout, just as they were as the bailout was ending. But that’s not the full story.

In 2011, GM did reclaim the number one position worldwide. This was relinquished about a month ago when Toyota reclaimed the position. Did Toyota, a Japanese company, briefly lose their top spot solely due to an auto-bailout?

No.

It’s more likely that the tsunami that ravaged their country was largely, if not completely, responsible for the title loss.

“As soon as they're able to recover and they can rebuild their factories and people's lives are back in shape, they begin making cars again and they immediately regrab the number one title,” Glenn commented.

So, not only was President Obama dishonest about the current ranking of GM, he also failed to mention anything about Toyota being the company to fall to the number two spot, and the economic struggles they’ve had while rebuilding over the last year.

“It's difficult to come to the conclusion that it was a mistake by this president,” Glenn said.

He went on to note that the President is acting as if his policies led to “the GM comeback.” Well, the comeback is over, so good policy making…

“If it was just due to the stimulus, it means you need to continually juice the system to be able to get them to sell that many cars,” Glenn said. “But that's not even true.”

The bailout was already over.

Not only did the president ignore the fact that a horrible natural disaster occurred in Japan AND ignore the fact that the bailout was already a failed policy by this time, he completely deceives the crowd he’s talking to. Obama was well aware of the effects that the tsunami had on the economy – he’s been using it as an excuse for his failed stimulus policies.

Here is a clip of the president doing just that:

“The economies already had absorbed an earthquake in Japan, the economic headwinds coming from Europe, the Arab Spring and the rise in oil prices, all of which have been very challenging for the recovery.”

“So he's claiming that he's made GM number one with the stimulus even though it was the tsunami that did it but he can't pretend he doesn't know the tsunami because he's claiming that the headwinds of the tsunami and other things are exactly what caused the stimulus not to work,” Glenn noted.

“He knows he’s lying about 800 different ways.”

President Obama is using the same tragedy to make him policies look good and as an excuse for his failed policies.

“This isn’t normal. It isn’t normal for Washington. This isn’t normal for any place on planet Earth,” he added.

“The question is do we accept this?”

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?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
