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."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
