Do you work harder than President Obama? (HINT: Yes)

President Obama is preparing for his third taxpayer funded vacation of 2014. After spending the Christmas and New Year’s holidays in Hawaii, the President flew to Southern California over President’s Day weekend to meet with King Abdullah II of Jordan and play a few rounds of golf at a posh estate. This latest trip will take the Obama family to the exclusive Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida.

“The president is about to go on vacation," Glenn said on radio this morning. "First of all, the man works nonstop. How does he do it? Seriously… He sometimes gets in at nine and sometimes stays as late as five… If that sounds like we're making it up, we're not."

Last weekend, TheBlaze reported the President skipped out on a briefing with his national security team about the devolving situation in Ukraine. But, not to worry, President Obama somehow figured out all of the necessary information ahead of his phone call with Russian President Vladamir Putin.

“I mean he tries to work on the weekends, but you know, he is so busy," Glenn joked. "Like if there's a national security meeting that happens on a Saturday about the Ukraine and Russia, he doesn't have time for that. He's tired. He just gets right on the phone with Vladimir Putin. He does not need to talk to any advisers. He knows it through osmosis.”

Beyond the ludicrous financial burden these dalliances put on the American taxpayer, the optics of this particular trip are not good. The President is on a nationwide income inequality tour, and yet he is spending the weekend at a gated community that requires the sponsorship of a member in order to play golf on one of its three courses. As the Miami Herald’s Blog cited, Ocean Reef is “about as far away from middle class as you can get in Key Largo.”

“He's such a warrior for the middle-class,” Pat quipped. “[He’s] in a gated exclusive gated community. You know because there's some people back there I think he wants to chat with for being so wealthy.”

“Thank goodness somebody is doing,” Glenn added. “So he's going to this gated community to chastise rich people.”

Ultimately, Glenn, Pat, and Stu questioned how President Obama will function once he is out of the White House for good, and he no longer has private planes and security shortcuts at his beck and call.

“What is it going to be like when they don't stop all traffic lights and all airport traffic for him? What's he going to be like,” Glenn asked. “How is he going to deal with it? I'm concerned because he's got such a grueling schedule now, can you imagine how grueling that schedule becomes when he doesn't have to work?”

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
