Aw, cute: Obama’s civilian army (FEMACorps) just graduated it’s first class

Remember when Barack Obama asked for a civilian defence force as strong and well funded as the U.S. military? Well, here’s Obama’s first graduating class of FEMACorps workers. The kid in the video sums up pretty well how disturbing this is when he says ‘we don’t really know what our job is’ while adding that he’ll go wherever the government sends him. Nothing like a little brownshirt army to have at your beckon call.

"You remember, how long was it, how long ago was it that I said that AmeriCorps is going to be working with the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA and it's not going to be a good thing?  Remember they mocked me for that?" Glenn asked Stu on radio this morning.

The prediction was prompted by Obama saying, "We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set.  We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."

While Glenn may have been mocked at the time, a new report shows he may not have been wrong after all.

CBS Reported:

231 young adults made history Saturday by graduating as the first class of FEMA Corps at the Center for Disaster Preparedness in Anniston, Al.

Recent high school graduate and Missouri native Austin McBee made the jump from Eagle Scouts to FEMA Corps.

"We are the first class ever to have this kind of a partnership and we're looking really forward to working with FEMA and seeing what we can do to help survivors," he said.

As a new unit of AmeriCorps, FEMA Corps grads will spend 10 months helping the nation respond and recover from disasters.

Many of the graduates will head to the Gulf Coast to assist with recent hurricane recovery.

"They're wearing AmeriCorps Department of Homeland Security uniforms.  This is a FEMA Department of Homeland Security program.  Let me tell you something.  Since when do we need a new division of people going out and helping on a hurricane?  That's what we do.  They are taking our job away.  That's our job.  That's our job as churches and communities.  That's our job.  FEMA is always the last one there.  When we had the tornadoes, Mercury One was one of the first groups on the scene.  Churches are always the first on the scene.  And when FEMA finally got to the tornadoes last season, when they finally got there, if you remember right it was two days later and they started telling people, you can't clean this up.  You don't have a permit.  You can't clean this up.  Remember?  What do we need these people for?  Why are we spending money on this?  This is the first class wearing the Department of Homeland Security uniform.  Not good, gang.  Not good.  Really not good."

"My favorite line in that is, we don't ‑‑ we don't really know what our job description is but we're willing to help out."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
