Lying liars and the lies they tell in the White House

The Obama administration, perhaps emboldened by a media that rarely if ever questions them. That is evidenced by the lengthy list of lies told by this president, a list Glenn went through on radio today. If only the media cared...

Some of the highlights:

1) BIDEN: Look, I was there when we did that with Social Security in 1983. I was one of eight people sitting in the room that included Tip O'Neill associating with President Reagan.

GLENN: Okay. Now he was talking about how great President Reagan was. First of all, Joe Biden never thought President Reagan was great. I mean, these guys hated him when he was in office. But he's specifically talking about how great Reagan is and how we need to get together, and he was, as he just said, in the room. Now, I should mention here that even as a ‑‑ even as cynical as I have become about these progressive politicians, I took Biden at his word on that. And who would say that? "I was there." Okay, then you can dance around it. But then he followed up, "I was in the room with about eight people when we did this." Fortunately ABC's Jake Tapper didn't take him at word. Jake looked into it and found out that, yes, Joe Biden was not in the room. He lied. He wasn't in the room working out that deal. He was not one of the key negotiators. Tapper called Biden on it, caught him in his bold‑face lie and how did he respond? This is what the office said: In 1983 the then Senator Biden was one of many senators who weighed in on budget‑related issues from the party leadership including on Social Security reform. In particular he was one of the group of members who met with Tip O'Neill while the speaker was negotiating with President Reagan on reform specifics. In those meetings the vice president, other members gave their thoughts on the negotiations to the speaker and the Senate majority leader ‑‑ or minority leader Robert Byrd.

2) Obama claimed he did not cut permits and licenses for oil and gas leases on federal land and federal waters in half. 

After Obama called Romney a liar for bringing up the figure, Chris Wallace found out Romney was right but only after the debate was over.

3) Obama's campaign claimed Romney was planning a $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthy.

Stephanie Cutter has come out and admitted this is untrue.

4) OBAMA: " We stabilized the banking system but we got back every dime we used to rescue the banks with interest."

 GLENN:  Did we really?  Because according to the Congressional Budget Office we're losing $24 billion on that deal.  The same day he said that, the CBO comes out and says we've lost $24 billion.  That's a lot of dimes, Mr. President.

5) OBAMA: "Under Governor Romney's definition, there are a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small businesses.  Donald Trump is a small business."

GLENN: No, Mr. President, Donald Trump has upwards of 25,000 employees, or more.  His revenue and his other millionaires and billionaires receive ‑‑ the revenues that he receives makes him ineligible for this.  Another lie.  The president told Univision that he inherited the scandalous, deadly, and disastrous Fast and Furious program. 

6)  OBAMA: First of all, I think it's important for us to understand that the Fast and Furious program was a field‑initiated program begun under the previous administration.  When Eric Holder found out about it, he discontinued it.

GLENN: This is an outrageous lie, according to ABC News.  ABC reports in actuality the Fast and Furious program was started October 2009.  October 2009.  That's the year the president got in.  Bush's last day ended in '08.  Instead Obama claims Bush started it, Holder discovered it and stopped it.  Instead of beginning the plan in 2009?  What?  What an outrageous lie.  How the media is not all over this administration for this, how the media thinks this ends up well for them or for any American, you cannot allow somebody with this much power to out‑and‑out lie over and over and outrageous lies.

7) Benghazi - PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING

GLENN: And let me end this with another hugely important lie. In addition to all the campaign and debate lies and quite honestly nearly everything that he says on the campaign trail about himself or Romney has been a lie. But all of ‑‑ in addition to all of that, this president has betrayed the sacred trust placed in him by the American people and has lied over and over again about the Benghazi tragedy. And this is so incredibly important. It may not be the sexiest story. It may not be the one that everybody is talking about, but what is happening over in the Middle East, especially the way it relates to Benghazi, is so critically important because the lies are covering what we're really doing over there. It is so critically important. Hear me, people of the left. Hear me, please hear me, Democrats. We are not divided on the war thing. We're not. We're not on opposite sides. You don't want another war; I don't want another war. You don't want American soldiers killed; I don't want American soldiers killed. I'm tired of the war, too. What is happening, they are sucking us into a global, a global war.

There was a predator drone flying over the embassy that night beaming a live feedback to the United States. Are you really going to tell us that you didn't know that there was no protest? You didn't know exactly what this was? You had a drone. It's been verified, with a live feed showing the firefight. You knew exactly what was going on.

Mr. President, in the situation room, I don't know if you've ever been there, but underneath your office is a room called the situation room where you can watch those live feeds. Somebody in your office was downstairs in the basement watching the feed! Somebody was there. Now why they didn't brief you is beyond me. Some might say that they did and you had been lying. And that someone is me. They said it was a protest gone wrong. You knew it was a lie. There was no protest. You said it was about a YouTube video, unprecedented, coordinated attack. You knew that that was a lie. They said they didn't know about all the requests for extra help and security. We know that that is a lie. This is why Romney is going to win.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

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.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

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?
