Glenn: Obama a danger to the United States of America

On radio this morning, Glenn dedicated a full hour of the radio show to laying out all the evidence on Libya that the White House has been ignoring.

On ABC News reported last night, it has now become clear that there was no protest going on outside of the embassy in Benghazi:

"This is significantly different than what we were being told at the time. At the time, as you recall, we were told it was a protest that went bad and became an attack. Now, we are told there was no protest going on outside that embassy. The first indication that they heard anything outside the walls of the embassy -- of the consulate compound, was an explosion and gunfire. They looked through a camera to see what was going on and we are told they saw a large number of armed men coming and approaching that compound. We're told it was a very complex attack without precedent in U.S. diplomatic history. We've never seen an attack like this in Libya or anywhere else, we were told by this senior State Department official," Karl reported.

"The translation to English from political bullcrap: We've been lied to," Glenn said in response to the news.

Glenn said that this is just the latest in revelations that the White House and the Obama Administration must have known, at the very least, that the Libyan embassy was at risk. The Heritage Foundation has released a timeline outlining the evidence that shows that despite credible information that the embassy could come under attack there was little to no security precautions taken by those in charge. The timeline includes attacks on the embassy prior to 9/11/2012, as well as dangers in the surrounding area and requests for increased security dating back to April of 2012.

Even worse was the response from the White House. The immediate response from Sec. of State Clinton and President Obama was to condemn the attacks, but they also condemned a controversial YouTube video that they said incited the violence in the Middle East. As TheBlaze TV has been pointing out for several weeks, one element of the Muslim Brotherhood's strategy to wage cultural jihad against the West is to outlaw blasphemy against Islame.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney came out and instantly condemned the attacks with a strong rebuke of Obama's foreign policy, only to be mocked by the media.

Glenn also said there are several unanswered questions that still have not been answered by the White House, including why Ambassador Stevens was travelling with men who were working to recover US arms in the area. Glenn has his own theories, and has also gotten word from unnamed sources in the State Department that have been "sending up flares".

Glenn said that people need to understand the following: The President and his administration lied one Day One about the nature of the attacks; the White House and the media advanced a Muslim Brotherhood agenda point by blaming the anti-Islamic YouTube video; officials in the State Department and other government agencies are starting to speak up and warn the American people; what is happening in the Middle East affects the security of America.

As a result of all of the above, Glenn said there are several conclusions that need to be drawn. First and foremost, the American people, especially those informed on what is really going on in the world, need to be the ones spreading the truth.

Second, it has become clear the Arab Spring was a failure.

Third, radical Islamists are stronger than ever. The death of Osama bin Laden does not mean Al Queda has been destroyed, as they have been linked to the attacks on the Libyan embassy.

Fourth, the Muslim Brotherhood is bad and they have infiltrated several institutions in America.

Finally, the Obama administration and several people in the State Department and other organizations are on the wrong side of this story - either knowingly or unknowingly.

"If it's not intentional, it is criminally negligent," Glenn said on his final point.

But Glenn said even if it is unintentional, he wondered how we could trust someone with such a poor record on Middle East policy to be the President of the United States. And if you combine this with all the other "bumps in the road" and issues that have come up over the past few years - rising gas prices, rising unemployment, the Ft. Hood shooting, the Iranian uprising, the Arab Spring, and more - even if they are all things that he can't be expected to handle, do we really want to re-elect him as President?

After all, Mitt Romney made the right call on Libya from the start, even when the media mocked him.

"Every time when the President shoots from the hip, he's wrong. And when he's informed, he's wrong. No mincing words: This President, whether he knows it or not, is a dangerous to the United States of America."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
