Glenn Beck: The President of the United States is telling callous, cold, and calculated lies

Part 1 of Glenn's monologue is above. Part 2 is at the bottom of this page.

Tonight on his TV show, Glenn examined all the evidence that has emerged from the attacks on the Libyan embassy in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. While some in the media are happy to report the pieces as they emerge, no one is stepping back to take a look at the big picture to see what it all means: The President and his administration knew what was going on during the attacks, they knew who was responsible, they didn't send in the aid or take the security measures needed to stop it. Glenn believes it has also become clear that the White House is covering up the real reason that Stevens was in Libya. And worst of all: President Barack Obama and his team are lying to the American people about all of it.

In recent history, there have been three major scandals from sitting Presidents: Nixon/Watergate, Reagan/Iran-Contra, and Clinton/Lewinsky. In most of those cases, especially Nixon and Clinton, the argument could be made that critics were simply playing politics. And while no one was killed as a result, they undeniably broke the trust of the American people.

Glenn believes that a similar scandal is unfolding today. President Barack Obama is lying to the American people on several issues. Some of them may appear small, like on Romney’s record on the auto-bailout, but others are far, far worse. In fact, Glenn believes that President Obama and his administration is covering the truth behind the murder of Libyan Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans by radical jihadists.

The Romney Op-Ed claim demonstrates his unrepentant ability to lie,” Glenn said. “The President has lied about the attack that killed a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans. And if we can’t get him to tell us the simple truth at the very beginning then there is something wrong, and at the very best it is just a very deep callousness that I don't think I’ve ever seen before from a sitting President. This man is putting American lives in danger and he doesn't even seem to care about the consequence of his own actions. He doesn’t care about the lies that he’s telling,” Glenn said.

While Glenn has never believed the official story from the White House on the Libya story, things keep getting worse. Last night, a series of e-mail reveal that the White House was told that the embassy in Benghazi was attacked by al Qaeda-linked radicals two hours after the attack began. The information conflicts with the instances when senior White House officials placed the blame for the attacks and the deaths on an anti-Islamic YouTube video.

The Blaze reports:

White House and State Department officials were informed just two hours after the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11 began that a radical Islamic militant group had claimed responsibility, according to official emails obtained by Reuters.

The emails, reportedly put out by the State Department, specifically mention that the Libyan militant group Ansar al-Sharia had taken credit for the attack almost immediately and called for additional terrorist acts.

The correspondence provides a glimpse into how U.S. diplomats described the fiery assault, as it was happening, to officials in Washington, D.C.

Glenn could not understand why the White House stuck to the YoutTube excuse for the attacks, nor did he know why a Quick Response Force was not deployed from our base in Sicily to help the attacked Americans. He also didn’t understand why Stevens was in Libya to begin with if it was so volatile.

Glenn also reviewed the timeline for the attacks, showing the ample time the military had to not only help once the attack began but to know better than to send the ambassador over there to begin with.

Glenn said that mounting evidence supports a theory he presented on September 17th: That the United States and Ambassador Stevens were providing weaponry to the Libyan rebels to overthrow Ghadaffi. Those guns then fell into the hands of the same radicals who launched the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi.

Glenn said there are too many unanswered questions emerging as we get further and further away from the attacks in Libya. Why was Stevens in Libya? Why was he not helped by American troops? Where was President Obama when the attacks were happening? Was he given the e-mails reporting on the attacks? If not, why? Why did the administration continue to push the YouTube story? Why was Hillary the one to take the fall for the attacks? Why has an Islamist sympathizer tied to Iran and CAIR appointed to investigate the Libyan situation? And where is the press holding President Obama accountable?

“I started the show today from the Oval Office because you have to know if you’re President is a crook. You have to know what our President is up to,” Glenn said.

“Obama is not telling you the truth on these terrorist attacks yet he continues to look you in the eye and say ‘Trust me. I’m your president. Trust me’ and he does it in the same cold calculating way Bill Clinton did it and Nixon did it. I’m sorry America but your President is a liar and this time it is different. It is not about politics, it is not about a personal relationship. This is about your children’s security. No way around this one. Whether you think its important about him lying on the campaign trail or when it ends with four Americans dead and a nightmare to follow there is no way around it. The President of the United States is telling callous, cold, and calculated lies.”

I think we can all agree, both on the Left and the Right, that children who have been caught up in illegal immigration is an awful situation. But apparently what no one can agree on is when it matters to them. This past weekend, it suddenly — and even a little magically — began to matter to the Left. Seemingly out of nowhere, they all collectively realized this was a problem and all rushed to blame the Trump administration.

Here's Rachel Maddow yesterday:

I seem to remember getting mocked by the Left for showing emotion on TV, but I'll give her a pass here. This is an emotional situation. But this is what I can't give her a pass on: where the heck was this outrage and emotion back in 2014? Because the same situation going on today — that stuff Maddow and the rest of the Left have only just now woken up to — was going on back in July 2014! And it was arguably worse back then.

I practically begged and pleaded for people to wake up to what was going on. We had to shed light on how our immigration system was being manipulated by people breaking our laws, and they were using kids as pawns to get it done. But unlike the gusto the Left is using now to report this story, let's take a look at what Rachel Maddow thought was more important back in 2014.

On July 1, 2014, Maddow opened her show with a riveting monologue on how President Obama was hosting a World Cup viewing party. That's hard-hitting stuff right there.

On July 2, 2014, Maddow actually acknowledged kids were at the border, but she referenced Health and Human Services only briefly and completely rushed through what was actually happening to these kids. She made a vague statement about a "policy" stating where kids were being taken after their arrival. She also blamed Congress for not acting.

See any difference in reporting there from today? That "policy" she referenced has suddenly become Trump's "new" policy, and it isn't Congress's fault… it's all on the President.

She goes on throughout the week.

On July 7, 2014, her top story was something on the Koch brothers. Immigration was only briefly mentioned at the end of the show. This trend continued all the way through the week. I went to the border on July 19. Did she cover it? Nope. In fact, she didn't mention kids at the border for the rest of the month. NOT AT ALL.

Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not?

Make up your minds. Is this an important issue or not? Do you care about immigrant kids who have been caught in the middle of a broken immigration system or not? Do you even care to fix it, or is this what it looks like — just another phony, addicted-to-outrage political stunt?

UPDATE: Here's how this discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

Glenn gives Rachel Maddow the benefit of the doubt

Rachel Maddow broke down in tears live on her MSNBC show over border crisis.

Progressives think the Obamas are a gift to the world. But their gift is apparently more of the metaphorical kind. It doesn't extend to helpful, tangible things like saving taxpayers money. Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation upgrades around the planned site of the Obama Presidential Center. The catch is that Illinois taxpayers will have to cover $200 million of that cost. For a presidential museum.

Eight years of multiplying the national debt wasn't enough for Barack Obama. Old fleecing habits die hard. What's another $200 million here and there, especially for something as important as an Obama tribute center?

That's all well and good except Illinois can't even fund its pension system. The state has a $137 billion funding shortfall. That means every person in Illinois owes $11,000 for pensions, and there is no plan to fix the mess. Unless Illinois progressives have discovered a new kind of math, this doesn't really add up. You can't fund pensions, but you're going to figure out a way to milk the public for another $200 million to help cover the cost of a library?

It's hard to imagine who in their right mind would think this will be money well spent. Well, except for maybe Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel who said, "The state's… investment in infrastructure improvements near the Obama Center on the South Side of Chicago is money well spent."

Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

The spending has already been signed into law, even though the Obama library has not received construction approval yet. Part of the holdup is that the proposed site is on public land in historic Jackson Park. That doesn't seem very progressive of the Obamas, but, you know, for certain presidents, you go above and beyond. It's just what you do. Some presidential overreach lasts longer than others.

Here's the thing about taxing the peasants so the king can build a fancy monument to himself – it's wrong. And completely unnecessary. The Obamas have the richest friends on the planet who could fund this project in their sleep. If the world simply must have a tricked-out Obama museum, then let private citizens take out their wallets voluntarily.

As the Mercury Museum proved this weekend, it is possible to build an exhibit with amazing artifacts that attracts a ton of visitors – and it cost taxpayers approximately zero dollars.

'The fool builds walls': China blasts Trump over tariffs

I can picture it now: Thousands of years ago, Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China, standing before hordes of his followers, in the Qin Dynasty, with a bright red bamboo hat on, and chanting, "Build that wall!"

It took a couple centuries to build the thing, but it got built. And it has been carefully maintained over the last 2,000 years, but, today, the Great Wall of China is so massive that astronauts can see it during good weather conditions from the lower part of low Earth orbit. The wall boasts over 3,000 miles of towers and brick embankments, with over 1,200 miles of natural defensive barriers. It's worth mentioning that the Chinese government is also exceptionally good at imposing digital walls, so much so that China ranks worst in the world for internet freedom.

So it's a little strange to hear an editorial run by a major news network in China criticized President Trump for his proposal to build a large wall along the southern border of America.

"Following the path of expanding and opening up is China's best response to the trade dispute between China and the United States, and is also the responsibility that major countries should have to the world," the author wrote. "The wise man builds bridges, the fool builds walls."

Similarly, the Pope told reporters in 2016, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel."

Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

If you've been to the Vatican, you know that it is surrounded by enormous walls. The same goes for all the celebrities who live in heavily walled compounds—a safety measure—but who have also vehemently criticized President Trump's plans to build a wall.

You know the adage: "People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones at other people's glass houses." Perhaps the phrase needs an update: Don't throw stones at people who want to build walls when you live in place surrounded by walls.

An immaculate Nazi doctor hovers over newborn. He probes and sneers at it. "Take it away," he says. This is the very real process that Nazi doctors undertook during the era of Nazi Germany: Nazi eugenics, the studious, sterile search to find children who would define a pure breed for the German lineage. The Übermensch.

During a speech to a delegation of Italy's Family Association in Rome on Saturday, Pope Francis referred to this cruel Nazi practice, which he used as a comparison to the increasingly popular process throughout Europe of "ending" birth defects, by offering abortions to women who have babies with chromosomal defects.

Here are two passages from the Pope's remarks:

I have heard that it's fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let's send it away.

And:

I say this with pain. In the last century the whole world was scandalized about what the Nazis did to purify the race. Today we do the same, but now with white gloves.

When CNN got the quote, and it shocked them so much that they had to verify the quote with the Vatican—in other words, it didn't fit the usual narrative.

It didn't fit the usual narrative.

The Pope also addressed claims that he has dedicated himself to LGBTQ causes:

Today, it is hard to say this, we speak of "diversified" families: different types of families. It is true that the word "family" is an analogical word, because we speak of the "family" of stars, family" of trees, "family" of animals ... it is an analogical word. But the human family in the image of God, man and woman, is the only one. It is the only one. A man and woman can be non-believers: but if they love each other and unite in marriage, they are in the image of God even if they don't believe.

The media have largely seen Pope Francis as the cool Pope, as the Obama of Catholicism. It'll be interesting to see how abruptly and severely that perspective changes.
