Ann Coulter analyzes the media's reaction to the townhall debate

Eager to hear her post-debate analysis, Glenn was looking forward to speaking bestselling author Ann Coulter more than usual this morning.

"I wish I could watch the debate with you.  It has to be fun," he told her this morning.

Ann, who after Obama's miserable attempt at the last debate, predicted the media would be declared the "winner" by the media as long as he showed up looking alert, had this to say about last night's townhall debate:

"I don't think this is going to help Obama at all. I knew the media would say he had won no matter what happened. He could have come out and his head could have rolled like Linda Blair's in the Exorcist, which it almost did. I just don't think Obama does nasty very well.  He seemed testy and sour the whole night, and I mean Candy Crowley — the most rememberable thing — her jumping in the Libya thing as the moderator, and the declaring a winner, when "oops, the umpire made a bad call" was outrageous."

Coulter admitted, Romney should have been more careful with his words when he called out the president for not calling Benghazi an act of terror until weeks after the fact, but he was accurate in his claim.

Glenn followed on that with the WhiteHouse.gov transcript, which provides the president's statement:

The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack.  We're working with the government of Libya to secure our diplomats.  I've also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world.  And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.

Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths.  We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.  But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence.  None.  The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.

 

"Yes, it's only at the end of the speech," Ann added. "And if he's going to describe everything he talked about falsely, as referring to Benghazi, then he's delusional and needs to be in a nut farm, because he was also talking about the 9/11 attack [the original]. Does he think that happened a month ago?"

"What do you think is the biggest takeaway from this last night?" Glenn asked.

"That Obama can't run on his record," Ann responded.

For example, Obama continued to claim that he was all for drilling and pipelines last night, and Mitt could respond with, 'but you didn't do anything to encourage pipelines or drill within the country.'

Ann also mentioned the African-American who told the president he had enthusiastically voted for him in 2008, but he's noticing that everything he needs is costing him most.

" I don't think Obama can get away from that," Ann said. "It doesn't matter how much the alleged media umpires are playing on the team for Obama.  It doesn't matter that the pressroom cheered when Obama took his cheap shot at Romney for being wealthy. People know they're out of work. They know everything the own, their assets, are worth less, and everything they need to buy costs more. And Romney said over and over again, the people don't believe that."

Glenn agreed and added, "I think that the American people know something is wrong.  They know these policies haven't worked.  I mean President Obama kept saying, "he's only got one point plan." Well, no, Mr. President yours is when it comes to taxes yours is one point.  Tax the rich, and the rest of your plan sounds like the stimulus package: infrastructure and green jobs."

Throughout the night, the president had to imitate the "rhetoric" that he blasts all of the time. He praised free-enterprise and claimed to support "risk-takers" saying that they needed to be rewarded. But his record points to statements of 'successful businessmen aren't that smart and "you didn't build that, somebody else did."

Glenn thought one of the most critical points in the debate occurred under the topic of energy.

"The president said, in so many words, 'you will never see a $1.85 gasoline if the country does well," Glenn said.

The president made this claim last night with the qualifier that the only reason gas was cheap was because the economy was about to crash. Which basically claims that the reason that gas is so expensive now is because the economy is doing so well. Unfortunately for the president, it's pretty well documented that unemployment is at 7.8%, 47 million people are on food stamps, and our debt is out of control.

"It's really a strange double whammy," Coulter pointed out. "Because generally that is true, that when the economy goes down the gas prices go down. Obama has managed to create a situation where there are 23 million people out of work, 50% of college graduates can't get a job, people are suffering, their houses are worth nothing, and yet, gas prices have more than doubled."

Glenn believes these debate have been great for Romney.

"They [Americans] didn't know Romney. They heard all kinds of horrible stories: he's a monster, He hates your children.  He wants to go in and tie every woman's fallopian tube.  He's a religious crazy, and 1,800 hundreds pioneer gash gauche, and he's practically Chinese, and they've heard these horror stories from the President," Glenn pointed out. "I don't think anyone will vocalize this, but because they generally trust the president — because he's gotten away with saying these things when they weren't true — but when they watch him [Romney], he looks like the President of the United States. Romney takes the President of the United States and makes him look, honestly, like an 18-year-old boy next to him."

They see this, and it's registering that the description of Mitt Romney they've been given isn't what they are seeing during these debates. It's causing them not to trust the president.

"I could not agree more," Ann responded, who added that it was also adding to the distrust in the media.

Glenn noted that the media is already down to 8% among the American people. So after these debates, when the American people are seeing Mitt Romney lay out his plan in an honest, calm, reasonable fashion, the media coming and claiming a 'Barack Obama victory' is discrediting them even more.

"It only sends a signal to those who don't trust the media, on both sides, that there's something wrong here."

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
