Obama doesn’t have a strategy to deal with ISIS, but he does have a plan to cripple the American economy

On Thursday, President Obama stepped up to the podium and offered a simple message about the United States’ strategy in dealing with ISIS: We don’t have one.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” the President said. “I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them.”

But, not to worry, Obama delivered a stump speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this weekend that proves he does have a plan to further derail the U.S. economy.

“There is no denying the simple truth: America deserves a raise,” he said to the crowd of A.F.L.-C.I.O. union members before touting his executive action that will raise the minimum wage for federal contractors from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour in 2015.

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the dueling priorities of the Obama Administration as it becomes clear the President is not particularly interested in dealing with foreign enemies.

“The President has come out and said he doesn't have a strategy yet from ISIS,” Glenn said. “I have a strategy, and I mean this sincerely because it works. This is where I think everybody is in America. We see how well it works. You just have gun control laws in Iraq – and Syria and parts of Jordan and parts of Iran.

“You make the caliphate a gun-free zone, there won't be a problem,” Stu added sarcastically.

Pat had another strategy that might be even simpler to implement given how well it has worked in Russia.

“What if they have a strategy where they really put the hammer down like they did in Russia and impose sanctions on – not ISIS – but people that ISIS doesn't know… How about that,” Pat asked. “Like, if ISIS is from Syria, they… freeze the bank accounts of certain Syrians who know an ISIS person.”

All kidding aside, as the world waits to find out how the U.S. plans to deal with the threat of ISIS, the President spent Labor Day weekend speaking to union workers about the need for an increased minimum wage.

The New York Times reports:

Countering arguments that raising the minimum wage would reduce jobs, Mr. Obama said states that had not waited for the federal government to raise their wages had seen more job growth than those that had not raised their wages.

During his brief stop — he was in Milwaukee for about two hours — Mr. Obama expressed optimism about the nation’s economic recovery, emphasizing the progress made since the 2008 collapse…

“By almost every measure, the American economy and American workers are better off than when I took office,” Mr. Obama said.

After a summer dominated by grim news at home and abroad, the president on Monday, the unofficial opening of the general election season, tried to refocus attention on an economic policy issue that could help his party. Democrats, wary of getting too close to Mr. Obama and his lackluster approval ratings, are fighting to keep control of the Senate in the midterm elections.

“He's laid all the groundwork to say, ‘These people in fast food restaurants just need a working wage. So let's give them a pay hike,’” Glenn explained. “Okay, Mr. President, are you going to pay for my burgers?”

Ultimately, with Obama’s logic in mind, Stu may have figured out the most optimal solution in dealing with ISIS.

“Talk about a way to kill ISIS,” Stu concluded. “You can pass a $15 dollar an hour wage in Syria and their economy would collapse.”

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
