Nice Try! Obama attempts to brush off ugly campaign tone

For the first time in nearly two months, President Obama addressed the White House Press Corp and faced more than a few questions about the tone of his campaign. Despite the divisive and fallacious rhetoric spewed on a daily basis by campaign advisors David Axelrod and Stephanie Cutter, Obama maintained the his campaign is by no means negative. After all, accusing your rival of committing a felony and killing someone is all in good fun.

“Guess who does a press conference yesterday and it's ridiculous,” Glenn asked at the start of the radio show this morning. “There has never been in American history a bigger group of partial truth tellers and downright liars than we have seen from team Obama and the Democratic Party every day.”

Not surprisingly, more than one reporter asked Obama about the borderline ugly tone his campaign has taken as of late that wreaks more of desperation than of a man who is running as an incumbent for reelection.

REPORTER: Are you comfortable with the tone that's being set by your campaign? Have you asked them to change their tone?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm not sure all of those characterizations are accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon. If you watch me on the campaign trail here's what I'm talking about: I'm talking about how he we put Americans back to work.

Considering Obama campaign advisor Stephanie Cutter started this whole felony conversation when she said that Mitt Romney was misrepresenting his position at Bain Capital through the SEC, the President cannot in good conscience stand in front of a group of people and say his campaign is not making accusations.

“Did Obama lie? Technically, maybe not. But did he tell the truth? Absolutely not,” Glenn said. “The question Americans need to ask themselves is: Is this the kind of President you kind of sort of want leading us kind of sort of or not really kind of sort of?”

A CBS News reporter asked Obama his thoughts on the Super PAC ad that suggested Romney was responsible for a woman’s death. Again, the President pleaded the fifth.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This is an ad that has barely run and this is not one I approved. And it's not true.

“As for the ad barely running, that's probably why he held the surprise press conference. The campaign got so much heat for the ad he had to come out and distance himself from it. These are flat out full frontal lies,” Glenn said.

Instead of focusing on his own policy plans for his second term, Obama used the press conference to lambast Romney’s credentials and policies.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Today it was reported in the Washington Post that the firms owned [by Romney] were outsourcing pioneers. We don't need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office. We need a President who will fight for American jobs. That's what my plan will do.

What is your plan exactly, Mr. President? “He didn't get to his plan. He got to the smear, and then he threw the word jobs in there,” Glenn commented.

So what yesterday’s spontaneous press conference seems to say is that despite all of the name-calling and mudslinging, the complete disregard for facts and the fabrications, Obama is remarkably satisfied with the overall tone of his campaign.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If you look at the overall trajectory of my campaign, we point out sharp difference between the candidates, but we don't go out-of-bounds.

“We don't go out-of-bounds,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “I would hate to see what he considers out-of-bounds.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
