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.”

Watch Obama’s full remarks via the Washington Examiner below:

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
