Who’s in charge? Obama ‘knew nothing’ about NSA, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Obamacare glitches

Over the course of his five years in office, an all too common theme has emerged from the Obama White House that involves someone claiming the President had ‘no idea’ what was going on. From Fast and Furious to Benghazi, the scope of the NSA surveillance techniques to Obamacare rollout glitches, the excuse used most often by this Administration is: The President knew nothing. So if that truly is the case, who is actually running the country?

“Has there been a coup? Could you please point us to the people who are actually running this country because the President doesn't seem to know anything that's happening? He didn't know about Benghazi. He didn't know about gun-running, about the IRS. He didn't know about anything. So who does,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Because you're either lying, or there's been a coup, and this president is woefully misinformed and negligent in his job. Even [MS]NBC rolled this edited piece of the press asking during all of the scandals: What did the President know and when did he know it?”

MSNBC is definitely not known for being critical of anything related to the Obama Administration, but this morning on Morning Joe, even they had to question the wherewithal of the White House.

“That's amazing… If I'm the President of the United States, I name names, I turn around and say it's this person. This person was in charge… All of these people, none of them thought it was important enough to bring it to my desk. They are all fired. And I want you to know their names… What they did was allow me to tell you a falsehood, and that's inexcusable.

What honest person would not have that conversation with the American people today,” Glenn asked. “What person wouldn't be so deeply sorry and so deeply offended that he had people around him that didn't stop him from lying to you? Please America, put this one together.”

“In any sane society that montage ends a presidency,” Stu said.

“We're not a sane society,” Glenn concluded. “We are not a sane society.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

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.
