It's Opposite Day: Glenn reacts to some of Obama’s flip-flops

Are the sanctions against Russia really working? Based on the answer President Obama gave a reporter, it isn’t really clear. On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu tried to make sense of some of Obama’s recent remarks as they compare to his past positions.

During a press conference on Wednesday, NBC News’ Chris Jansing asked the President a simple question: “Are sanctions [against Russia] not working?” Obama’s answer was not nearly as straightforward.

OBAMA: Well, we don't know yet whether sanctions are working. Sanctions are working as intended in putting enormous pressure and strain on the Russian economy.

While Pat and Stu could not make heads or tails of the apparent doublespeak, Glenn tried to better understand the President’s reasoning.

“So here's what he said: We don't know if sanctions are working in the grand scheme of things, but sanctions are working as they are intended to put great pressure on,” Glenn said. “But has he capitulated yet? No, we don't know if they are working in that way, but we know that they are working as intended to put great pressure on the economy… You don't just put them on and then they capitulate right away. We don't know the end result.”

Obama made another interesting comment this week during the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. While discussing various initiatives aimed at strengthen U.S./African relations, the President made this plea to House Republicans.

OBAMA: I would be remiss if I did not add that House Republicans can help by reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank. That is the right thing to do.

While running for President in 2008, however, President Obama had a slightly different opinion of the Export-Import Bank.

OBAMA: I'm not a Democrat that believes we can or should defend every government program just because it's there. There's some that don't work like we had hoped. The Bush Administration spent $1 billion a on a reading program that hasn't improved our children's reading. We should take that money and use it for things that work. There's some programs that have been duplicated by other programs, that we just need to cut back, like the Economic Development Agency and the Export-Import Bank that's become no more than a fund for corporate welfare.

“So it's a little more than a fund for corporate welfare, but the Republicans should reauthorize it back into existence because it's the right thing to do,” Pat said. “Can you explain that opposite?”

Glenn admitted this one was a bit more difficult to explain away.

“This is really challenging,” Glenn said. “[But] because I'm now in charge and the seas are beginning to recede, I have fixed the Import-Export bank, and it is no longer corrupt, no longer corporate welfare. Now it is important because I have arrived.”

While Glenn’s response may have been a bit sarcastic, Stu believes that is probably not too far from the President’s approach.

“He was in a campaign [when he made the original statement],” Stu said. “He may have completely forgotten he was critical of the Import-Export Bank – it’s just a thing he said on that day. Now the thing to say is, ‘I need it,’ so he's saying that. That's not specific to Obama by any mention.”

Ultimately, Stu found the archive clip to be particularly interesting because of the light it shines on how government waste is viewed.

“It's interesting to hear the older clips of him in that it just shines a great light on how the government works. As he is going through in 2008, he is discussing a reading program for $1 billion that he's saying is a waste of money,” Stu concluded. “What percentage of our government would stand, if we lived on that standard? Certainly less than half – if you need a measurable results from a program that you have.”

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.
