Obama on government: ‘We’re doing things right’

In case you needed further proof that President Obama is an egomaniac, he is now touting his plans for a “smarter government,” while reminding Americans that his administration is “doing things right.”

During a speech at the White House on Monday, President Obama explained:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've got to have the brightest minds to help solve our biggest challenges. And it's a reminder that in this democracy recognize that this government belongs to each us, and it's up to each of us and every one of us to make it work better. We can't just stand on the sidelines. We can't take comfort in just being cynical. We all have a stake in government success, because the government is us.

"He's so Woodrow Wilson it's sickening," Glenn said.

“I mean, listen to this hypocrisy,” Pat continued. “This is all about, ‘Hey, you need to root for me. You need to be on my side. You need to be out there fighting for me. Don't be on the sidelines. You need to fight for me. And anybody who doesn't is cynical and awful and against government completely.’ Wow.”

The nonsense continued:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We're doing things right. When we're tracking weather more effectively, that saves lives of those who are in the path of a tornado.

“Stop! Stop! When we're tracking weather more effectively,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “Seriously, when I was voting in 2000, 2004, 2008, I was thinking, we could just track weather more effectively.

“Me too,” Pat quipped. “That's why I was so pissed when Bush didn't do it. [He] promised, and he lied. Remember? ‘I will be the greatest tracker of weather in American history.’ Remember that? And then he let us down. He let us down.”

Although we have been tracking weather for nearly a century now, we haven’t truly been saving lives until President Obama took office. And heaven forbid someone remind the president that there are private businesses also specializing in weather tracking.

“And there certainly would be no private entities that would step in to track weather because there's no money in it,” Stu joked. “There's no need for it. What are they going to do? Make a channel out of it? They're not going to do that!”

“That would be stupid,” Pat interjected. “Oh, man, to have a Weather Channel. Track weather 24 hours a day? That would be like having a whole channel of news or something!”

But President Obama’s victory lap didn’t stop there:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: When we're delivering effectively data on improved healthcare choices, that's going to save lives.

“Hang on,” Glenn said. “I don't even understand what that is. ‘When we are delivering data on healthcare choices?’ Seriously who is crawling in to go, ‘I just need some more government data... on healthcare choices!’… Yeah, I can't seem to muster up my outrage for this guy anymore.”

When it comes to the government, everyone wish it was efficient, more effective, a better oiled machine, but time and time again we learn that is just not the case. Fortunately, President Obama had an excuse ready for that too:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We’re doing a lot of this work administratively but unfortunately there are still a bunch of rules, a lot of legislation that has poorly designed some of our agencies and forces folks to engage in bureaucratic jump-hoop — hoop jumping — instead of just going ahead and focusing on mission and delivering good service to our citizens.

“We all want the government to work well,” Stu said. “We just don't want it to do the things you think it should do.”

“Why wouldn't we want it to work well,” Pat asked. “We're the ones paying for it.”

“You just feel bad for him,” Glenn concluded, “because he's such a clown.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
