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.”

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
