Jay Carney mocks ABC News’ Jon Karl for daring to question Obamacare signup process

The Obamacare rollout has been a major black eye for this Administration. The tactic to cover up for the failures has been to lie (i.e. President Obama’s now infamous: If you like your plan, you can keep your plan). If they didn’t lie, the law never would have passed. But, as Glenn explained on radio this morning, lying is nothing new.

So what is the next tactic the Obama Administration will use to distract from the fiasco? Based on White House Press Secretary Jay Carney’s performance yesterday, the Rules for Radicals playbook of isolate and ridicule seems to be on tap.

“So what is their tactic now,” Glenn asked. “Let's go to Jay Carney, otherwise known as Saul Alinsky.”

“Seriously, talk to people who really don't like bullies. Let's talk seriously. I don't like bullies… I despise bullies, but the left is the one that always gets credit for being against bullies. But their playbook is from the biggest bully of all time: Saul Alinsky,” Glenn explained. “And Saul Alinsky's tactic is – think of bullies – isolate, ridicule. So what you do is you get everybody onto your side and then you surround that individual. This is Saul Alinsky tactic… So he ridicules and then, like Pat said, brings the crowd around him and says, ‘John, we are not all confused. We are all in this room. You're all alone.’”

But this tactic of isolating and ridiculing is not simply reserved for the press. Anyone who disagrees with this White House is saddled with the same treatment.

“I want you to listen carefully,” Glenn said. “This is what everyone in this society is trying to convince you of: That you are alone, that everybody is against you, that the odds are against you, that you will never make it, that you will never make it in your business, never make it in your school. You need somebody to help you. And listen, that's a cute little idea that you have, but you didn't build that. You didn't do that. You are not capable. Don't listen to any of that.”

“I want to tell you something really, really important. There are certain laws of the universe that are true and unchangeable. And one of them is, there's power in the spoken word… There's power in the spoken word. There's power in what you think,” he continued. “And right now the entire world is geared up to make you think that the collective has power; that the collective is worth saving; that the individual is meaningless, is helpless, is hopeless. Do not believe any of it. Do not speak any of it. Only speak those things that you know to be true… You are powerful.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
