WATCH: Glenn’s impassioned reaction to Obama’s U.N. speech

President Obama addressed the Unites Nations General Assembly yesterday, and his speech consisted of several questionable declarations about the state of U.S. foreign policy and the state of the world as a whole. On radio this morning, Glenn unleashed a passionate rebuke the President’s words.

“No one wants to believe that the President of the United States, any president of the United States, is a habitual liar. Nobody does. But how many times do you have to see it for your own self and hear it with your own ears before that label becomes appropriate and absolutely unavoidable insanity to not attach that label,” Glenn asked. “It is way past appropriate to call the President a liar. He is a liar. What is truly incomprehensible, however, is that he can look into the eyes of the American people and look the world in the face and say the things that he said yesterday with a straight face.”

One of the issues the President attempted to address was the tactics and motives of the National Security Agency (NSA) both domestically and abroad.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've begun to review the way that we gather intelligence so that we properly balance the legitimate security concerns of our citizens and allies with the privacy concerns that all people share.

“That's unbelievable,” Glenn said. “Our privacy concerns as citizens, who are guaranteed to be protected under the Constitution, have been ignored. They have been lied about and they have been shredded.”

We know Americans are uneasy with the surveillance techniques of the federal government, but how do our allies feel? Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff used her speech, which opened the U.N. General Assembly, to accuse the U.S. of violating human rights and international law through espionage that included spying on her email.

PRESIDENT ROUSSEFF: The permanent mission of Brazil with the United Nations and even the very presidency of the republic of Brazil were subject to interception of communications. Tampering in such a manner in the life and affairs of other countries is a breach of international law and as such, it is an affront to the principles that should otherwise govern relations among countries, especially among friendly nations. What we have before us, Mr. President, is a serious violation of human rights and civil liberties, a case of invasion and capture of confidential secret information pertaining to business activities and, above all, a case of disrespect against the sovereignty of my country.

“Does this sound like she agrees – that her concerns have been properly balanced by the President of the United States,” Glenn asked. “Who are we turning into? She is, quite frankly, pissed and should be. She has every right to be. She was actually scheduled to come to Washington for an official state visit, but she cancelled it. Brazil cancelled an official state visit because of this spying program. Do you know anything about this? Have you heard this in the news?”

The President, according to Glenn, has “ruined or weakened” our ties with our closest allies, as much as he has worsened our relationship with our enemies.

“They are talking now about the United States of America violating basic human rights. This is not Iran saying this. This is Brazil,” Glenn said. “And then our President has the gall to stand up and say this yesterday:”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: As a result of this work, in cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago.

“You've got to be kidding me: The world was more stable than it was five years ago. This is why, honestly, we don't concentrate on presidential speeches anymore because blood shoots out of my eyes,” Glenn proclaimed exasperatedly. “I can't believe the Hollywood world we live in, where everybody allows him to get away with this. The world is more stable than it was five years ago?”

Let’s quickly rundown just a few of the unstable events that have transpired in the last five years:

“You mean like before Egypt was on fire? Before Egypt rounded up 50,000 Muslim Brotherhood clerics and outlawed the group? Really? You mean we're more stable now? Before two changes in Egyptian leadership within a year, including a military coup that we don't even know if you'll call it a coup or not? You mean more stable than when the Christian churches were burned to the ground and Coptic Christians were being massacred? Because these are the changes in Egypt, by the way, Mr. President, that you encouraged,” Glenn explained.

“The world is more stable now that we don't have a dictator in Libya,” he asked. “Don't like the dictator, didn't like him, but now Al‑Qaeda is in charge of Libya, and the world is on fire there.”

The world was less stable before Libya burst into flames and four Americans were murdered in Benghazi. It was more stable, when the world thought that we would actually go rescue our own people,” Glenn continued. “You have the gall to say that the world's more stable after Kenyan terrorists began rising up and murdering innocent people at shopping malls? The world was really less stable before the Syrian Civil War, which hundreds of thousands of people have been killed. Chemical weapons were used. Because we destabilized the world, Mr. President! And the world is on the brink of World War III, and you have the gall to say it's more stable?”

There is no quantifiable way to argue that the world is more stable now than when President Obama took office, so why is he even trying to make that case?

“Mr. President, you are far too intelligent for this. You know better than this, but maybe you don't because everybody is afraid to say anything to you. So maybe you don't. Maybe you've never learned a lesson because nobody ever has the guts to say anything to you,” Glenn said. “Nobody will ever say, ‘Do you realize what you've just done? Do you realize what that speech just did? Do you realize what the ramifications are? Do you realize, Mr. President?’ No. Instead, everybody fawns over you and says you're the greatest leader to ever live! So maybe you don't. But I can't believe anymore that you're not just straight‑up lying.”

“Let me understand this. Is that really your idea of stable, Mr. President? Is that really what you think is stable,” he continued. “Because to quote the Princess Bride, "You keep using that word, and I do not think it means what you think it means."

Glenn ended his impassioned monologue with a plea to the American people:

“Let me ask you something: Where are you? Where are you? When will you have the basic human dignity and decency to stand up and denounce,” Glenn asked. “I don't care if you denounce this man or denounce your vote. I don't care. You denounce what's going on. You stand up and say, ‘No, not in my name.’ When? For the sake of our lives, our children, our God, our liberty? When will you finally wake up and say, ‘I can't be a part of this, not in my name. Not in my name.’”

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?
