WH spokesperson stumped: Where was Obama on night of Benghazi attack?

It’s a relatively simple question: where was President Obama on the night of the Benghazi attacks? No one seems to know. Yesterday White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer was grilled about the location of the President that night and his pathetic response indicates the President was probably not where he should have been.

"They are changing the story. Every time I hear the White House, they are changing the story, and no one is tracking the story.

During a contentious back and forth with Chris Wallace, Pfeiffer refused to say where President Obama was during the attack on the Benghazi consulate.

WALLACE: But with due respect, you didn't answer my question: What did the president do that night?

PFEIFFER: He was kept ‑‑ he was in constant touch that night with his national security team and he kept up with the events as they were happening.

WALLACE: Well, you say his national security team. He didn't talk to the Secretary of State except for the one time when the first attack was over. He didn't talk to the Secretary of Defense. He didn't talk to the chairman of the joint chiefs. Who was he talking to?

PFEIFFER: He was talking to his national ‑‑ his national security staff, his National Security Council or the people who keep him up to date about it on these things as they happen.

WALLACE: Was he in the situation room?

PFEIFFER: He was kept up to date throughout the situation room.

"This is different than what he said before.  What he said before was that the president wasn't involved, he didn't need to be involved," Glenn said.

Glenn explained that he believes that President Obama was kept out of the loop so he wouldn't be a witness to a situation that involved running guns to the rebels in Syria.

"Why isn't the president in the situation room when he's upstairs going to sleepy sleep? Why did they make it such a point? Why would Leon Panetta come out and say what he said during an election, that the president, there was no phone calls, there was no e‑mails, there was no phone calls, no contact. No contact with anyone in the White House all night long. Why? Why? To keep him clean of the real crime," Glenn said. "Even the death of the ambassador, I am sorry to say, is not the real crime. The one they are trying to cover up is not the ambassador's death. It is running guns to the Muslim Brotherhood. Period. And the longer you spend trying to figure out why they're trying to do these things, the longer you spend not tying it to what was going on in that annex in the first place, the farther away from the truth you get."

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
