REPORT: Obama administration warned about attacks, did nothing

The more details surface about the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya, the more disturbing they are. First, there are shocking reports about the Ambassador possibly being sexually assaulted before being killed. Also, reports are indicating that Obama knew about the elevated warnings and did nothing.

TheBlaze reported:

Senior diplomatic sources say the U.S. State Department had credible information, 48 hours prior to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the embassy in Cairo, that American locations may be targeted, however, no warnings were issued, no “lock down” orders given, The Independent reports.

On Tuesday, a mob of radical Islamists stormed the consulate in Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in a fiery assault. Officials say the murders of the four men were likely the result of “a serious and continuing security breach,” the report states.

The Independent has also reported that sensitive documents have been taken from the embassy:

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

"If we can't see the difference between good and evil, if you can't see that a president continually lies to your face, if you can't see that a man who has not been to a briefing in two weeks, has only gone in the last year to 4‑ ‑‑ is it 38% of his briefings, that we had a warning 48 hours in advance and this president didn't put out an alert to the embassies, that the guy he assigned to Libya was flying in to Libya after the warning had come in and he didn't alert him!  That while that ambassador was being sodomized on the street and killed and our NOC list was being taken, the president didn't even have the wherewithal, the care to stay awake, to find out what was going to happen, how he could help, to brainstorm to bring somebody in with an idea on what we should be doing.  He decided to go to sleep.  Oh, my gosh.  America, character matters," Glenn said in response to the news.

Glenn said that when he was driving into work this morning in New York City, he watched the people on the street and wondered how they couldn't recognize the failure of leadership that America is currently experiencing. Is everyone just too wrapped up in their own lives to realize what is happening? Are people paying attention to what is going on in the Middle East? Will Barack Obama be re-elected because Americans were ignorant of where he really stands on the issues and what his actions have meant for the country?

"Now, I'm driving down the street. I'm thinking, how long before they go after the bottles? And I'm looking at the people and I'm wondering, how long before you people wake up? How much more? And then I saw people for being people, not just stupid New Yorkers. And I saw a woman who's walking down and she was carrying her purse and she was smoking and she was rushing to work. And I started to think, 'What is her life like? Where is she going? What does she do for a living?'"

"I saw another guy who was jogging and he had tennis shoes and black socks. He ‑‑ I mean, he looked like he came right out of 1970. And I thought, 'Who is your wife? How does she let you out of the door with black socks and shorts?' He was like 45 years old. 'Who are you listening to? Does your wife even look at you anymore? Do your kids say, hey, Dad, stop with the black socks'? I wondered what he did for a living," he continued.

"As I saw somebody just kind of meander down the street, I saw somebody else behind them. It was a guy probably about 50 years old and he was a little pudgy, he was a little out of shape like me and he was carrying two big, heavy boxes. I wondered, 'What's in the box? Where are you taking it? What do you do for a living?' I notice he had two cellphones."

"The reason why I bring this up is because I looked at those people and I thought, how much, how much time do they have to do their own homework? Most of us are fighting for our lives just to get home, just to be with the kids. That guy probably doesn't have any other socks except black ones with the shorts because he probably wears a suit every day and that's just kind of the world he lives in. He was probably going jogging because the doctor said, 'You've got to get some exercise, man.' And it's something new. He's probably fighting for his health and his wife probably doesn't care about the socks. She probably just cares about having him alive. 'I don't care what you ‑‑ I know your father looks ridiculous in the socks, but he's doing something. He's trying to get into shape.'"

"Is it that we have been so duped, that we are so in debt that we are ‑‑ we are living to work, not working to live? Let's give America the benefit of the doubt, that they're just busy, tired, and misguided in their priorities."

Glenn emphasized, however, that character matters - and in the end whatever the excuses are we cannot afford to have four more years where America heads down the wrong direction.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.
