Media turns Barack Obama foreign policy disaster into Mitt Romney gaffe

If you were reading the news yesterday, you would have thought the worst thing going on in the world involved Mitt Romney criticizing the administration's response to the ongoing attacks on embassies in the Middle East.

Yesterday, before the Cairo embassy was breached, the organization issued the statement:

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

After the Libya embassy was attacked, they tweeted that they still stood by their statement.

Soon after, Romney condemned the statement that was issued by the embassy, issuing a statement that read:

"I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It's disgraceful that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

Almost instantly the media attacked Romney as being "irresponsible" and "ham-handed". Reporters claimed that the White House has sufficiently denounced the attacks on the embassies and distanced themselves for the controversial statement from the Cairo organization. Furthermore, they accused Romney of trying to politicize the attacks.

But rather than cave to the attacks, Romney stood his ground.

"The president takes responsibility not just for the words that come from his mouth but also from the words that come from his ambassadors, from his administration, from his embassies, from his State Department. They clearly sent mixed messages to the world," Romney said.

The mixed signals Romney referred to were the conflicting messages coming from the Cairo embassy condemning the controversial film which is said to have ignited the protests, and the statement issued by the White House distancing themselves from the Cairo's embassy's statement.

"We express immediately when we feel that the president and his administration have done something which is inconsistent with the principles of America. Simply put, having an embassy which is -- has been breached and has protesters on its grounds, having violated the sovereignty of the United States -- having that embassy reiterate a statement effectively apologizing for the right of free speech is not the right course for an administration," Romney added.

On radio, Glenn could not believe the attacks being made by Romney by the media following the statement.

"Let me show you what happened after, I believe it was nine U.S. soldiers were killed while the president (Obama) was running for President of the United States and he came out and he said this:

John McCain who supported the war from the start said we'd be greeted as liberators has really focused on the tactical issues in Iraq and the surge has no doubt reduced violence and I think all Americans are thrilled by that.  But what George Bush and John McCain have missed consistently from the start of this process is the broader strategy.  You know, was it a wise thing to go in there and what are the costs and benefits of staying there indefinitely.  We're spending $10 billion a month there.  We've spent $200 billion since the surge began.  Meanwhile the situation where ‑‑ where the central front against terrorism should be taking place in Afghanistan, the situation has deteriorated and we have this brazen attack on a U.S. base where nine servicemen were killed. 

Obama pretty blatantly had no issue using a tragedy where nine servicemen were killed to score political points for his own campaign. But he sure doesn't like it when someone does the same to him.

"There is no time, there is no time like during a campaign when you should hear the differing opinions on the issues that affect not only the country but us as individuals and the entire globe.  What, Mitt Romney should shut his mouth?  No.  Mitt Romney should say exactly what he believes and carve out the exact differences between the two.  Because you have a choice, America.  You have a choice," Glenn explained.

"The media is somehow or another making Mitt Romney the bad guy in this.  Somehow or another Mitt Romney should keep his opinion to himself.  It's a presidential election.  We should absolutely hear what Mitt Romney has to say," Glenn added.

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.

The Federal Reserve is now doing two things it has promised never to do: purchasing our national debt, which has never been higher, and printing money, which leads to deflation. As a result, your money in the bank has already lost 10 percent of its value in recent weeks.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck explained how, thanks to the fed's poor decision making, our deficits have another dangerous effect: The United States' credit score has been downgraded, putting our country at risk of becoming an untrustworthy borrower. He also advises Americans to have at least a week's worth of cash at home, because a banking crisis could happen soon.
