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 less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."

The World Economic Forum isn't trying to hide its plans for the Great Reset. Details to "reset" the global economy have been published on its own website. Despite that and all the warning signs, many are still quick to refute this master plan as a "conspiracy theory" or as something that will never actually take hold. But as Glenn Beck explained on the radio program Monday, the Great Reset is happening right now in Europe. A huge new development for the Great Reset that could affect not only European businesses, but American ones as well. Businesses — and citizens — may be forced to comply sooner than you think.
