Glenn: How do you deal with a President who is hell bent on destroying America?

Glenn opened the radio program this morning with a scathing critique of President Obama and his increasingly authoritarian leadership style. When you consider the results of a new AP-GFK poll, which find the President’s approval rating to be at a mere 37%, clearly the American people are fed up as well.

“How do you deal with a President who is hell bent on destroying America as you know it,” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

For President Obama to have been able to get away with all he has over the last five years, Glenn explained the media must either be complicit or oblivious. And the oblivious argument wore out its welcome a long time ago.

“I don't believe oblivious anymore. To be oblivious, you have to be dead,” Glenn said. “From the beginning, the American media has been head over heels in love with this man and his story. If you even believe his story, if not for all of the anti-American itch and ideology attached to the story, nobody would ever believe it. But because it's just rife with hatred for America, they are charmed.”

It became clear President Obama studied under prominent Marxists, Communists, and Revolutionaries. It became clear the people he refers to as “mentors” in his books were nothing more than composites. It became clear he attended the church of an America-hating, racist pastor for 20 years. And yet the media continued to laud his vision and what he stood for.

“I wondered how we could even contemplate putting this man on a parade committee, let alone the president of the United States. But the trust, the love, the adoration from the media continued unabated – for some because they actually share his distaste for this country; for others, because they were totally and incompletely ignorant,” Glenn explained. “To them, he was the symbol of diversity that they had been yearning for. He was hope and change itself. He was simultaneously proof that, in America, all things are possible through government and a reminder that this nation sprang from oppressive racist roots. He was everything the left ever dreamt of and more.”

When you have a media that is unabashedly infatuated with the President, you see questions like this:

REPORTER: What has surprised you the most about this office, enchanted you the most of serving in this office, humbled you the most, and troubled you the most.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, let me write this down. Let me write this down.

“When you hear the press start to ask somebody in power that kind of question, you know you are in real trouble,” Glenn said. “Which explains how he survived the election. Jobs dismal, almost nonexistent. One where he himself declared this:”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If I don't have this done in three years, it's going to be a one-term proposition.

“No, no. As a result of the cover of the media, he survived. He has continued to survive, despite breaking virtually every promise that he made even do his extreme left base,” he continued. “He hasn't stopped surveillance or warrantless wire-tapping. Do you remember that? That's what he was all about. No more foreign wars. Bring the troops home. Stop the killing… No more use of drones. I'm going to close Gitmo. He hasn't done that. Not in one year. Not in five years.”

As the government shutdown continues on because of a refusal to negotiate, President Obama had the gall to stand in front of the American people yesterday and say this:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: This morning, I had a chance to speak with Speaker Boehner. And I told him I'm happy to talk with him about anything – not the issues I think are important, but the issues they think are important.

“The deception is so easy to see through,” Glenn said. “He's happy to talk about anything. He won't budge a single inch, won't make a single concession. He's happy to talk all you want. In fact, in his entire presidency, name one thing that he's conceded to the Republicans. They say he concedes all the time. He gives everything. Tell me one time. One thing that was ever really important to the Tea Party and the people who believe in the Constitution. Name one… How about not apologizing for everything that we have ever done? How about just seeing that we have good intentions? How about not calling us ‘Tea Baggers’ for once? How about just recognizing the people that came on 8/28/10 and saying they were good decent people? How about just that? Name one thing.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But I also told him that having such a conversations, talks, negotiations shouldn't require hanging the threats of a government shutdown or economic chaos over the heads of the American people.

“That, of course, is not what they are doing. It isn't,” Glenn said. “But he is a master of setting up a false premise and babbling endlessly about how evil they are. And how evil what they are doing is, which they aren't doing.”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Think about it this way. The American people do not get to demand a ransom for doing their jobs. You don't get a chance to call your bank and say, ‘I'm not going to pay my mortgage this month unless you throw in a new car and an XBox.’ If you are in negotiations around buying somebody's house, you don't get to say, ‘Well, let's talk about the price I'm going to pay, and if you don't give me the price, I'm going to burn down your house.’ That's not how it works.

The President’s remarks are especially ironic when you consider how picky he has become when it comes to implementing and obeying the law.

“How about we look at it this way. In our lives, we don't get to say, you know what? We're just going to ignore this law or that law. How about that, Mr. President? In this life, in this Republic, we don't get to say, I’m going to disavow and not obey this law. But this one, I'm going to do. I don't get to do that. None of us do. But you do,” Glenn said. “That, sir, and let me be very clear, is the sign of a dictator, someone who dictates the laws. When they are passed, you follow them. You sir, do not. You sir, pick and choose which laws and who to apply them to.”

In a scattered shower of journalism moment yesterday, Mark Knoller of CBS News asked the President a ‘tough’ question about the current political climate, and President Obama’s response proved just how out-of-touch he has become:

KNOLLER: Mr. President, while you are waiting for the shutdown to end, why is it that you can't go along with any of the bills the House is passing? Funding the FDA, FEMA, where you were yesterday, and Veteran's Benefits, and Head Start. You've got to be tempted to sign those bills and get funding to those bills that you support?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Of course I'm tempted because you want to solve some of the problem if you could not solve all of it. But what you see are bills from Republicans wherever they feel political pressure, they put a bill forward. If there's no political heat, no television story on it, then nothing happens.

“So let me translate and take out all of this smugness and arrogance. If [he] signs these things, there won't be any pain, and [he’s] intending on inflicting as much pain on the American people as possible,” Glenn said. “Here's the thing. Everything that's been said here, I want you to know this: To those who are truly awake, truly completely awake, you are about to win. Wake up your neighbors, and if they refuse to come out of their deep sleep, move on to the next person. This is triage operation. And those of us who are believers know the truth. Here is the truth: The Constitution now and forever. It will stand because it is the truth.”

For weeks now, our political leaders and the media have been repeating the World Health Organization's claim that non-medical-grade face masks don't work when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. So, why are infectious disease experts now reconsidering their guidelines?

According to the New York Times, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, said the guidance on wearing non-medical masks is "being critically re-reviewed, to see if there's potential additional value for individuals that are infected or individuals that may be asymptomatically infected."

In actuality, they didn't trust the American people to do the right thing and prioritize healthcare workers to receive masks first, opined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday. But they do work, and "if we're going to open the country up, we are going to all have to wear face masks," he said.

William "Bill" Kelly is 95-year-old World War II veteran from Oregon. He lived through the Great Depression.
He served in the South Pacific during World War II. And now he has just fought the coronavirus -- and won.

Bill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share his experience and a hopeful message about why the younger generations can overcome this crisis.

"I want to tell the people, it wasn't pleasant, but on the other hand, you know, if you do what you're supposed to do, and you have some loved ones around you, and do a lot of praying, why, you'll come through okay. We [American's] have been through a lot. We've been through Pearl Harbor. We've been through the Great Depression, and who knows what else. We're tough. We'll get through it. Hang in there," Bill said.

"You know, it's just -- it's in our American blood," he added. "We're that type of people. We take care of each other, and we are not going to break down. We're going to make it through, every time. Every time."

"There are people that don't think we are those people anymore. That it was the greatest generation -- your generation -- that did it, but now we're not the same people. Do you agree with that? Glenn asked.

"No," asserted Bill. "And the reason I say that is because I remember when I was a young kid, you know, and people, the older people, said 'all those young kids are soft' ... but when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor -- sneak attack, you know -- it's surprising how those so-called goofy kids turned into mighty fine fighting people. And they're very loyal. I have lots of faith in them ... no, I don't have any problems with this new generation. They'll take care of us. We're Americans."

COVID-19 Now Killing Victims Who Don't Have COVID-19 https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-nyc-emts-stop-taking-cardiac-arrest-patients-to-hospitals/
  • EMTs in New York have been given a directive not to transport heart-attack victims to hospitals if they cannot be revived at the scene.
  • Prior cardiac arrest victims would have been transported to hospitals for further life-saving procedures, but with hospitals being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, heart attack victims are solely in the hands of local EMTs. If EMTs cannot restore a pulse at the scene, victims are to be left there to die.
  • "Artificial ventilation and/or compressions must not be delayed," the memo states, adding that chest "compressions must begin as soon as it is determined the patient does not have a pulse."
  • But the guidelines change if the patient cannot be revived before arriving at a hospital.
  • "In the event a resuscitation is terminated, and the body is in public view, the body can be left in the custody of the NYPD."
China Lied, People Died Trending on Social Media https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
  • US Intelligence Services has concluded what the Internet has known since January: The Chinese Communist Party lied about total infected and total deaths due to Coronavirus.
  • Citing a report provided to the White House last week, officials confirmed that US Intelligence concludes 'gross' underreporting of total cases and total deaths, especially from Hubei Province.
  • Many have speculated that numbers coming out of China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and other totalitarian countries have been dramatically underreported, by as much as a factor of 10 according to official British Intelligence reports.
  • The early misrepresentation of data by the CCP may have lead some Western Politicians and epidemiologists to underestimate the seriousness of COVID-19 and delayed response in Italy, Spain, the UK and the US.
  • Though why anybody would have believed anything the Chinese Communist Party had to say remains an open question...
Italy's Death Toll Far Higher Than Reported https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italys-coronavirus-death-toll-is-far-higher-than-reported/ar-BB122vvc
  • In the town of Coccaglio, an hour's drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi.
  • These aren't isolated incidents. Italy's official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don't make it to the hospital and are never tested, therefore they aren't included in official numbers.
  • "They were all sick, they all had flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing," stated a nurse from one of the nursing homes. "We had no ambulance to get them to Milan."
  • In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic's human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
  • As stretched and sometimes overwhelmed hospitals fight to save their patients, many other people die unseen and uncounted, including elderly people in out-of-the-way locations.
  • In addition, the health-care crisis can lead to a surge of deaths from other causes that would normally be treatable.
  • "There are many more dead from the virus than are officially declared... People died and they were never tested because time and resources are limited," Eugenio Fossati, deputy mayor of Coccaglio, says of deaths caused by the virus.
More Numbers Hard to Trust as Bodies Left On The Streets in Ecuador https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3078077/coronavirus-bodies-are-being-left-streets-ecuador
  • Coronavirus: bodies are being left on the streets in Ecuador.
  • 'They fall in front of hospitals or in back street alleys, or in small villages…no one wants to recover them,' says the mayor of Ecuador's largest city.
  • The army is placing unclaimed bodies in refrigerated cargo containers at the port while authorities pursue plans for a new cemetery.
  • The corpses have been overwhelming Guayaquil, a port city of 2.8 million at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in Ecuador.
  • Over the last few days, several were wrapped in plastic and left on the streets. Others have lain unclaimed in hospitals and clinics that have been overwhelmed by infections. The city morgue is full.
  • The majority of the dead are believed to be victims of the virus, but nobody can say for sure how many. There has been little testing.
  • The country has confirmed 2,700 infections and 93 deaths - 60 of them in Guayaquil and its immediate surroundings. But municipal officials there said they have recovered at least 400 bodies in the last 3 days.
  • Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who announced that she has also tested positive for the virus, said the national government should be responsible for collecting the corpses.
  • "They're leaving them in the villages, they are stacked in front of hospitals," she said in a Twitter video message to residents late last week.
  • Many local villages in Ecuador are simply burying the dead in unmarked graves, which will make official counting of COVID-19 victims impossible in the weeks ahead.
50% of Viral Spread Comes from People With No Symptoms https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/health/us-coronavirus-updates-wednesday/index.html
  • Researchers in Iceland have confirmed earlier reports from Hong Kong that a significant amount of viral spread is caused by carriers who have no symptoms.
  • In the US, Doctors at the CDC have confirmed asymptomatic spread, but estimate a number of about 25%.
  • If true, then the case for all persons to wear masks, even those who don't have symptoms, becomes much stronger.
  • To prevent further spread, the top infectious disease expert in the US says health officials are reconsidering guidance on face masks.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would "lean towards" recommending that the general public wear face masks "if we do not have the problem of taking away masks from the health care workers who need them. The public can stay home to avoid infection, but health care workers cannot," he said.
  • "We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci said.
Ship vs Train... Ship Wins https://abc7.com/usns-mercy-coronavirus-train-crash-derailment/6069395/
  • A Locomotive Engineer in Los Angeles has been charged with 1 Count of "Train Wrecking", a Class A Felony under Federal Law, after purposely derailing his freight train while attempting to sink the US Hospital ship Mercy.
  • Eduardo Moreno, 44, intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"
  • Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally but said he did not plan it out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.
  • He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
  • Officials say video from inside the train's cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.
Biggest Issue With COVID-19 in Malaysia: Nagging Wives https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825051317/dont-nag-your-husband-during-lock-down-malaysias-government-advises-women
  • Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting.
  • This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.
  • Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.
  • The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores.
  • Additionally, the Ministry urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.
  • After some negative response on social media, the public service messages have been removed from the Ministry's Facebook page.

MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell was lambasted by the left and mainstream media after he announced at a White House press briefing on Monday that his company will start making tens of thousands of masks to fight against the spread of coronavirus. Lindell also thanked God for President Donald Trump and encouraged Americans to turn back to God in this time of crisis.

Read the details here.

Whether it was his support for President Trump or strong religious beliefs, no one has lit up the media quite like Mike Lindell. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to talk about the president, the 'horrible, crazy media' and how he's not afraid to keep speaking out about his faith.

"I think people are going to quit being brainwashed by this horrible, crazy media -- they know who they are -- and the public is going to see the amazing job that our president is doing," Lindell said. "I've done interview after interview today. I'm taking all the bad ones on -- I think I'm going on 'The View' tomorrow I love it. I want to go right into the hurricane. Finally, I get to speak out for Jesus like I want to."
