MSNBC reporter presses White House on affiliation with group selling access to the President

Yesterday, TheBlaze.com reported that Organizing for Action, a group "closely affiliated" with the White House, was offering donors access to the President in exchange for large donations upwards of $500k. The reaction to the group's auctioning off of face-time with President Obama hasn't been very positive, to say the least.

There's a good reason for the negative reaction. The allegedly "independent" group is headed by Barack Obama's former campaign manager, Jim Messina. If OFA sounded familiar, but you had never heard of "Organizing for Action", it's because the DNC's community organizing project was "Organizing for America". Organizing for America was transformed into Organizing for Action in January of this year.

"Closely affiliated" seems like a bit of an understatement.

Yesterday, in an unprecedented moment of journalism, White House Spokesman Jay Carney struggled to explain the administrations position on the issue.

Jay Carney: "There are a variety of rules governing interaction between administration officials and outside groups, and the administration officials follow those rules.  White House and administration officials will not be raising money for Organizing For Action and while they may appear at appropriate OFA events in their official capacities, they will not be raising money."

"That's exactly what they're doing," Glenn responded upon hearing the clip.

He compared face-time with the president to what Glenn does to raise money for charity by exclusive events for more expensive ticket packages.

"You can buy these tickets that are like $1200.  through Mercury One. They're some of the same tickets are packaged like…you know, $5,000 or $10,000 or $25,000. Well, all of that money goes to charity, so I'm attending a special dinner and you have time with me," Glenn explained. "If you did like $50,000 or whatever, you and I have time together — "face-time" — one-on-one time together. So that is exactly what they're doing."

Glenn went on to explain that he's not just showing up to talk to people. He's raising money, which is exactly what the President is doing for these groups. He's using the White House and the presidency to help them raise money.

"It's obscene," Glenn said.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd, oddly enough, was the reporter giving Carney such a hard time on the issue.

"Even MSNBC is becoming disgusted with these guys," Glenn noted.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
