Glenn: "Today officially is the day that I no longer recognize my country."

Obama administration ignored cries for help three times during embassy attacks - DETAILS

Just ten days to go before the election and it’s absolutely amazing it’s as close as it is in the polls. How can the President even be close with this horrible economy, but more importantly, the cold and callous actions demonstrated in the wake of the Libya attacks. Where is the integrity? The honor? Over four years ago President Obama said he would fundamentally transform America. Glenn looked at the news from the past couple of weeks and warned listeners and viewers across the country that the day has finally come where he no longer recognizes America.

In the last week, Glenn spent time with someone who worked in the Situation Room. Before making assumptions about how bad the news breaking in Benghazi is and how deep it goes -- what would in be like in the Situation Room during this type of crisis?

This is the answer Glenn received: "Without a shadow of a doubt, the president of the United States knew. If he didn't, then you've got a bigger problem because the president is not informed.  The president has people doing things and he's not involved."

Consider the amount of information that Glenn and his team have been able to acquire over the last couple of weeks, not only from reporters, but from sources they have -- why is anyone, inside or outside of the media, giving the president an 'out' that he somehow didn't know what was happening?

The way these stories are stacking up, not only did this administration know what was going on, they also made the conscious decision not to do anything.

"The only one that could have authorized special forces going in is the President of the United States," Glenn added. "But that would require Leon Panetta and the Secretary of State going to the president."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, would have had to go to the president and make the case that special forces needed to be sent in. But the president is the one who makes the final decision.

"If he claims that he didn't have any of the information that I now have sitting, redacted, sitting on my desk right now that shows what was happening in realtime, that was handed to the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense and the situation room, if he says he didn't have that information, he's either lying or you need to demand a list of the people who are fired because of it," Glenn said.

But the time for giving the President the benefit of the doubt on this is over. He's the President of the United States, he did know. It's his job to know.

"With the amount of information you have, you know that it's impossible for that situation to develop without him knowing about it," Stu said to Glenn. "You're being fair because you have information that makes it impossible for this guy to have not known.  He knew, period.  He knew."

For the past couple of years Glenn has been warning that we would wake up one day and not recognize our country. He warned that we were being led down a path that could redefine who we are as Americans.

This morning on radio, as all of the breaking news on Benghazi continued to come together, Glenn had to be the one to tell Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods' father the breaking news about the 'stand down' order that was given during the attack that killed his son -- the order that made it painfully obvious not only that the President of the United States has been lying about this story since day one, but that he did nothing as four Americans were killed by terrorists on the anniversary of 9/11 in Benghazi.

"What have we turned into?" Glenn asked.

Ambassador Chris Stevens was hired by President Obama -- he chose him for this job. He knew the man that had repeatedly asked for more security. Did the president think it was under control? That nothing was going to happen? Something did happen. Glenn pointed out that the president is the Commander-in-Chief of the military.

"When something happens and your military is there AND you can do something to save the man that you appointed to go in our name -- And he does nothing? I don't understand it," Glenn said.

Glenn has pointed out the marxist policies of the president, his socialist tendencies, the class warfare, but today Glenn realized that our country is crossing a new line.

Americans serve voluntarily -- Americans serve because they believe in this country.

"You don't just grab somebody up and throw them in a school and make them the ambassador from birth like in Communist countries. These are people who are volunteering!" Glenn pointed out. "And the president is the last ‑‑ the guy who says, "We're not going to leave a single person behind."  We won't leave our people behind."

But that's not what Barack Obama did. What he did was not the "American way."

"If we don't turn this corner, America, we will become a force, a global, terrifying force for evil," he added.  "It's not just our destruction.  We're talking about the destruction of our souls.  You can't be this kind of a person or a country -- you can't."

The president had the capabilities of not risking more human life to save the lives of our ambassador and these SEALs. One drone could have saved these men and they were told to stand down.

Glenn asked the question: What must have these Navy SEALs been thinking in their own heads? "What have I sacrificed for? What do we even mean?"

"Today officially is the day that I no longer recognize my country."

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
