Glenn agrees with Obama: This is the biggest election yet

Barack Obama has said this is the biggest choice that Americans could face, and Glenn happens to agree with him. Of course, Glenn agrees for a completely different reason. Barack Obama warned us four years ago that he would ‘fundamentally transform America’ if he were elected. He’s doing it and if he has another 4 years it’s uncertain if America as we know it would survive.

On the radio show, he played this ad from Barack Obama:

In the ad, Obama ends with: "Sometimes politics can seem very small. But the choice you face, it couldn't be bigger."

"Here's the thing: The plan that he's talking about is different than the plan I'm talking about. When he says we tried their plan and it didn't work, he's talking about a different plan. He's talking about a big government progressive Republican plan. We're talking about the Founder's plan: freedom and merit. An idea that President Obama dismisses entirely. But he would. He doesn't understand it. How could you possibly say that you understand truly the Founders in America, when you never went to a Fourth of July parade, you didn't go to fireworks on the Fourth of July. You were raised in Indonesia and then you moved to Hawaii where you spent your teenage years in Hawaii."

"The Founder's ideas worked to the extent that hundreds of millions of immigrants poured into our shores just to be a part of it to escape what they had anywhere else. It worked to the extent that we pulled ourselves along with much of the rest of the world out of the Dark Ages and into the brilliant electric light of freedom and hope and opportunity, success and invention," Glenns said.

Glenn noted that most nations that followed progressivism to its socialist and communist extremes have all had to deal with the opposite: Their citizens fled to be a part of nations that represented freedom and opportunity.

"We have violated the idea of a free Republic, of a free nation. We have done it through regulation over the last 100 years. We have done it through progressivism where a man cannot start his own business, can't chart his own course. Only here in this nation can you do it. And we're a shadow of what we should be. This nation provides equal opportunity. No guarantees, just the opportunity."

Glenn used his own story as an example. Twelve years ago he couldn't afford his rent, at the time less than $700.Now people refer to Glenn as a leader and titan in the media industry, and he's been blessed with financial success. That kind of opportunity and success is uniquely American. He added that there are stories of

You can find those stories over and over again in America, and only in America. In each of their cases and so many more through perseverance and ingenuity,through getting back over and over they stronger. They become people able to conquer any adversity. And therefore they will acheive amazing success. We hold these truths to be self-evident. With your children, if you jump in and take care of everything for them whenever anything goes wrong in their life, if you don't allow them to overcome adversity on their own, they will be dependent upon you. How is it any different with us and our government? Expecting people to work through their own problems is not heartless or hateful or selfish. It helps them build character, and gain confidence. It makes our country stronger."

"We can be there for the occasionally helping hand up. But if we continue to get handouts and trophies that nobody deserves, we're giving them or us any favors," Glenn said.

"Obama is right. That commercial is true. The choice in November couldn't be any bigger. To you give you some perspective there are 51 more times we meet before we decide the future of our country. The choice could not be any bigger. The biggest choice America maybe has ever faced. Will we allow fundamental transformation to be completed? Or will we again as we did 236 years ago fight for our independence? Except this time at the ballot box, because at least today the ballot box still matters."

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.
