Why does Glenn pray President Obama is 'exactly like' FDR?

On radio this morning, Glenn explained what he believes to be the two most important stories out of Egypt: the persecution of Christians and the potential economic fallout in America as a result of rising gas prices. Both issues have received little coverage from the mainstream media, but, as Glenn explained, the United States now finds itself in a situation very similar to that of the 1940s. President Franklin D. Roosevelt ultimately chose to forego the New Deal for capitalism – will President Obama do the same?

“Egypt is going to affect you, whether you know it or not, because of our blessing of the

Muslim Brotherhood, and what they are now doing to the Coptic Christians,” Glenn said. “And this is a story that media just does not care about. You're going to need to pay attention to it, and share the information with your friends and with your church, and let people know what's really happening. There's a purge going on that is akin to the Night of Broken Glass in Germany. It is a frightening situation, if you are a Christian in Egypt.”

On Friday’s Glenn Beck Program, guest-host Laurie Dhue spoke to Erick Stakelbeck about the persecution Coptic Christians have faced in the region, and Erick specifically called out the media for failing to cover the story.

Meanwhile, we are still sending aid – to the tune of $1.5 billion annually – to the Egyptian military. While it may be becoming more and more difficult to justify the enormous aid check, but Glenn found himself conflicted on the topic.

“I did a lot of thinking and praying on this over the weekend, and I don't think that we have a choice at this point. My feeling is that we shouldn't be sending aid over to Egypt, but if we cut the aid off in Egypt, it will spiral that nation out of control even faster than it is,” Glenn explained. “We should not be sending aid over to Egypt, however, we are in a position now, because of our behavior and because of the choices we already made, that if we don't fund is military, which will be the hardline crackdown – if we're lucky, it will become the new Mubarak. If we don't support them, then we are look at an all-out civil war between the Muslim Brotherhood and something even potentially more dangerous.”

So what would Glenn do if he were in President Obama’s position?

“If I were president, I would get our ducks in a row right now and start drilling for oil and I would open up absolutely every oilfield we could possibly open and I would take the shackles off of our energy developing companies and I would say, ‘Go get it, boys. And do it quickly. You are running out of time,’” Glenn said. “If I were president, I would use the aid we are doing to buy us time, but I would make it very clear… I'm taking all shackles off our oil companies on anything they want to produce here because we have to be energy-independent right now.”

In 2008, the U.S. economy collapsed with gas prices at $140 per barrel. Today, oil is at $107.46, and many are speculating that the devolving situation in Egypt could drive prices close to $200 a barrel and beyond.

“There will come a time that the world will have to get involved in the Middle East and will have to get involved most likely in Egypt because of the Suez Canal. If they close the Suez Canal, prices of oil immediately skyrocket, probably to $180 a barrel. That adds ungodly amounts of money to be able to get oil,” Glenn explained. “So whatever you are paying for gas today, I want you to look at that gas price and realize that unless we find some way to put the genie back in the bottle or… we uncap those resources and start going for our own resources, we are done.”

Glenn liked the situation we currently find ourselves in to that of the 1940s. Prior to entering World War II the economy was in shambles and not getting any better, as President Roosevelt continued to implement the New Deal. Ultimately, however, even FDR realized the value of capitalism in troubled economic times. But will President Obama see things the same way?

“There is the possibility that things get so bad that this president realizes we are done as a nation, unless we go to the capitalists and turn this engine back on. Oil is going to go through the roof, I fear. If it does, we're in deep, deep trouble,” Glenn said. “The question is, do you believe in the end that this president is a patriot that doesn't want to see America completely destroyed. Because there are many of our grandparents… that felt the same way about FDR as we do about this president – the government is getting out of control, we are starting to head towards tyranny, this guy doesn't know what he's doing, and he doesn't love the country. In the end, FDR showed that yes, he did want America to survive. Let's pray that this president is exactly like FDR, that in the end, he does love the country and he will do the right thing, and when we have our back up against the wall, he shows us that yes, yes, this system can produce, and watch us produce.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
