Beck: Panetta testimony was cover for Obama

So why in the world is Panetta so freely disassociating Obama from the night of Sept 11? It seems quite damaging to the President and the story he’s presented so far on his involvement with Benghazi. Glenn’s theory is that another hammer is about to drop - something even worse - that the President needs cover from. What news is coming?

"Let's just play this out. At first nobody knew anything. We were getting information as quickly as we can, right?" Glenn said.

"And I said at the time: Why are there no pictures like there was with Bin Laden? Why are there no pictures of the situation room? The Secretary of Defense, while it's going on, we have drones up in the sky. It's easy to deploy a drone. You know we had drones up in the sky of Libya at this time. It goes ‑‑ it's beyond reason to think we didn't."

"So the State Department originally said 'I'm watching on a monitor realtime.' It is beyond reason to think that this nation on September 11th in the greatest hot spot in the world, that we don't have ‑‑ especially after all the threats that we now know came in, that we don't have a drone somewhere in the area. We know we have open lines of communication for realtime information. We know that former Navy SEALs were in the area and they were told to stand down, but they heard about it. They went and joined the fight. They lost their lives. But they went on their own accord are. So we know that people knew what was going on, and we were told that the president was engaged and the president, you know, just didn't have the information fast enough."

"Then we're told, when we say ask ‑ where was (Obama)? Where was he? Can we find out, what was the timetable? Can we give ‑‑ you know where the president is at all times."

"There is a record of where the president is at all times. Can I tell you something? When I am ‑‑ when I am driving, I have a security detail. And when I'm driving ‑‑ I'm not the president of the United States. When I'm driving, there are certain checkpoints, and the guys look down at their cellphone and they push a button and it says, checkpoint 1, checkpoint 2. So I think there's like five of them between here and my house. That is communicated to the other security detail that's not with me and to the security headquarters in Los Angeles. And so they are caught ‑‑ they know when I leave and they know if you don't hit that checkpoint from this time to this time, call. Because there's a problem. Okay. That's my security detail. So you know the president of the United States, you know exactly where he is within six feet at any given time, and there's record of it."

"Well, they don't know where he is. They don't know where the president is."

"Then they send out pictures to show that he's engaged, having meetings: This is where the president was on September 11th. Remember the pictures that came out, make him look very presidential? He's meeting with the generals and Panetta and everything else. Okay. To make us feel like he was engaged and watching everything."

"Now Panetta comes out and says, 'Oh, well, that's just from a meeting. We met with him for just a few minutes and we told him and he said, well, you guys handle it.' I don't even believe that's constitutional. Do you? Do you have a ‑‑ I don't even know if that's constitutional. 'You guys handle it.' He didn't even ask what assets we have. Nothing. 'You guys do it.' And then they left him alone from 5:30 for the rest of the night. And he doesn't check in."

"Why would they now make the president look like he wasn't engaged at all, that he wasn't a part of this?"

"Remember the president wants to be viewed as a guy who killed Osama Bin Laden. So why would you do that? Why would you make it look like he doesn't ‑‑ had nothing to do with it?"

"Okay. Here's why: Because as bad as that is, we'll play some audio for you here in a minute from Rand Paul. Rand Paul is the first guy that I have heard in the public eye that has said, yes, they were running drugs ‑‑ or guns. I told you that Week 1 when this happened: They're running guns. Those guns that had just suddenly disappeared and all those weapons of mass destruction, they suddenly disappeared, we were running guns. Later the New York Times reports that, yes, and they found a captain of a ship that was running those guns, and we were part of it."

"So here's what happened. This is why this testimony came out yesterday. What is on the horizon about what that ambassador was doing and what our response was is so much worse than the president being involved. So they know that the president is going to get heat and people are going to say, 'You weren't involved at all' So when the real story comes out, he can say, 'Oh, my gosh.'"

"'I should have been involved. That's why they kept me at arm's‑length. That's why they told me that they could take care of it and they wanted me out of it. I had nothing to do with this at all.'"

"This is to protect the president from some ‑‑ from another shoe that's going to fall, and that shoe is going to be bad. And hear me now: This president was involved. He knew. And they are protecting him right now. Do not believe the cover. Because that's all Panetta's was yesterday was a coverup, to distance the president from what is going to be exposed in the future."

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
