Glenn's Top Moments of 2012: Libs freakout over Obama in PeePee

With Glenn on vacation for the holidays, we're counting down the top Glenn moments of 2012. What were this year's highlights? Stay tuned to the Glenn Beck newsletter to find out!

Libs freakout over Obama in PeePee

The left in America believe they have the market cornered when it comes to the art world. So, it probably royally hacked them off when Glenn Beck was named one of the top 100 most influential in the art world recently. Glenn put his new ‘player in the art world’ credibility to the test in 2012 when he unveiled his first masterpiece: Obama in Pee Pee.  Some might say it was just an Obama action figure in a jar of liquid that wasn’t actually urine, but those people just don’t know art. The inspiration for the piece was a recent work that had made news - Obama as Jesus. That picture portrayed Obama positioned as Jesus dying on the cross, and wearing a crown of thorns. Liberals predictably were outraged over ‘Obama in Pee Pee’ and were blind to their hypocritical defense of various artwork that mocks Jesus. Glenn put Obama in Pee Pee up for charity auction and it ended up selling for $13,000.

But the best part of Obama in Pee Pee was the interview Glenn had with the artist of the Obama as Jesus picture.  As a liberal, he was convinced Glenn was going to try to humiliate and smear him, but ended up being shocked that Glenn was so... fair. He later admitted that he had just believed the short clips liberals use in an attempt to smear Glenn.  Shockingly, the truth was far different than what the MSM presents.

California Democrats are leading the way on green spending, but what do they have to show for it?

In this clip, Glenn discusses California's crippling energy shortage and pleas to its citizens to stop cooling their homes during the current heat wave. Elected officials want Californians to buy electric vehicles and stop charging them, leaving Glenn to deduce that California lawmakers want people to stay home.

California's grid is under such strain that it requires a power plant in Oakland that burns jet fuel to continue operating through the end of next year to keep the lights on. "That sounds green as crap, doesn't it?" Glenn snarked. Can Americans continue to shrug this off as only California’s problem? Well, between the 17 states who have bound themselves to California by law, how long will it be before the rest of America begins to feel the impact in their lives?

The average price for a gas-powered vehicle is approximately $48,000, while the average price for an electric car is more than $66,000. And according to a study from the Hoover Institution, California will have to double its grid to meet the EV demand.

Watch as Glenn walks through the challenges and the proposed "solutions" out of California.

After tense negotiations between Amtrak, its workers, and the White House, Biden has announced that they've reached a "tentative deal" to avoid a national rail strike.

Reuters reported:

U.S. passenger railroad Amtrak would resume normal operations Friday as it works to quickly restore canceled trains after a freight rail labor deal was announced, averting a rail shutdown.

"We're saved!" Glenn said on Thursday's radio program. Pay no attention to what was happening just a few months ago with this deal or the fact that it is nearing the midterms. Just stand in awe of the totally coherent Joe Biden and his unquestionable cognitive ability to intervene in negotiations with the union workers and save America.

"This is political theatre at its finest," Glenn said. In this video, Glenn performed a one-man political theater show and illustrated why some might be led to believe that the whole Amtrak debacle was strategically planned — and on International Democracy Day to boot.

Enjoy the show.

San Francisco Chronicle reported that catalytic converter thieves targeted police vehicles earlier this week.

According to police, at around 1 p.m. on Monday, an SFPD officer discovered that a catalytic converter had been stolen off of a police truck in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. A spokesperson said the officer later noticed multiple police vehicles had been hit by thieves.

No arrests have been made. Multiple officer injuries have been reported in connection to catalytic converter theft incidents.

As San Francisco police were targeted by catalytic converter thieves, House Rep. Nancy Pelosi was in D.C., along with President Joe Biden, and told the American people about the totally successful and not at all disastrous Inflation Reduction Act. Glenn Beck covered the spectacle on his radio program and called the gathering "the worst propaganda ever devised."
