"Did anyone even vet this guy?": MoveOn.org's hilarious anti-Romney ad

The left love’s to accuse Glenn of linking disconnected instances of leftist maneuvering together to making ‘crazy conspiracy theories’ to persuade America against this administration. They used to criticize him for the people he would put up on his blackboard, completely disregarding the facts that got them there, of course.

Well, “if you can’t beat ‘em, join em,” the saying goes. It looks like one of Glenn’s biggest critics (and frequent guest of the blackboard) has found a blackboard of their own: MoveOn.org.

In typical MoveOn.org fashion, they completely forgot to include facts in the blackboard conspiracy theories featured in their latest anti-Romney political ad.

This morning on radio, Glenn played the video that MoveOn.org thinks could stop Mitt Romney from being elected this morning. Key word being “thinks,” because, most likely, this video is going to have you laughing for the next ten minutes.

“Moveon.org is attacking Mitt Romney and the Republicans using conspiracy theories and a blackboard. This is the greatest thing ever,” Glenn said this morning


After “criticizing” Romney for saying “corporations are people” – something Stu pointed out is part of the legal definition of the term – “strapping the family dog to the roof of a car,” and “parking his money in the Cayman Islands,” MoveOn.org has the audacity to ask this question:

“I mean, did anyone even vet this guy?”

Incredible. Glenn quickly points out who the mentor of the current occupant of the White House is and how thick that mentor’s FBI file is.

“He is hanging out with known communists and terrorists. He puts a Communist in the White House, a Communist revolutionary who called for the overthrow of the United States government,” Glenn said.

But Mitt Romney puts his family dog in a dog-crate on their car, he hasn’t been properly vetted.

“I mean, how can you bring up the dog thing at this point?” Stu asked. “That is a lost argument for you guys. I don’t know if you know that. Your candidate was eating dogs.”

After the accusations, MoveOn.org’s conspiracy theories begin. Yes, the “three prong GOP plan to get Mitt Romney into the White House.”

“This is great. This is when they're showing the chalkboard,” Glenn noted. “This is when they're showing the chalkboard behind them, with all of the things exactly the way Jon Stewart would portray it, they're putting it behind them and going, ‘Look, here it is. Here it is. Here are all the connections’."

What is this “three prong plan” laid out in the ad?

1. Sabotage the economy and blame it on Obama

2. Use rich peoples’ money to spread lies about Obama

3. Suppress minority voters using Voter ID laws

How does the evil GOP plan on accomplishing their master plan? According to MoveOn.org by “doing things like starving states of funding which force massive layoffs and then criticizing Obama for those job losses.”

“Can you imagine criticizing a president who has only been in office for four years?” Pat jokes.

The ad goes on to blame the GOP for damaging the United States credit rating due to the “debt ceiling debacle,” and demonize Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for emphasizing the importance of Barack Obama being a one term president.

Writers note: Someone may want to inform MoveOn.org that the Democrats currently hold the majority in the Senate before they make any more political ads, as this one repeatedly refers to Mitch McConnell as the Majority Leader - that would be Harry Reid.

“Not jobs, not an economic recovery. It's all about defeating Obama,” MoveOn.org claims. “And the most frightening part about this strategy is that it's working. The latest polls indicate more Americans actually blame Obama for the struggling economy – over Wall Street, congress, or even George W. Bush.”

Is it really that frightening or hard to believe that America would blame the man who has been the leader of the country the last four years for its current problems?

Of course not.

“America is just done with it,” Glenn said. We're done with people telling us ‘we didn’t build that.’ I'm sorry, but we don't buy the lies anymore.”

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
