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.”

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."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
