This is why we don’t like talking about President Obama

There’s a reason Glenn doesn’t like to spend too much time playing audio from President Obama. In fact, he banned his name from even being mentioned on the radio show for all of 2013. Today, Pat put together a montage of some of Obama’s biggest lies - and Glenn could barely contain his outrage.

"Nobody wants to believe the President of the United States is a liar. Nobody. It doesn't work out well. No one wants to say that about the president. I don't want to say it, I don't want to believe it. I love this country. I have immense respect for the office of the President of the United States, not the men, but the office. But this is a fact. And it is an unpleasant one. Most of the press completely ignores it, but it is a fact, and the proof is readily available for anybody who cares to look," Glenn said on radio today.

Glenn then ran through a litany of lies that Obama has told. Here are just a few:

Lie: The Affordable Care Act isn't a gateway to single-payer.

President Obama said, "Let me address an illegitimate concern that's being put forward by those who are claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single payer system."

The Truth: President Obama has said in the past "A single payer health care credit–universal healthcare credit. That’s what I’d like to see, but as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House and we’ve got to take back the Senate and we’ve got to take back the House.”

Lie: The healthcare mandate isn't a tax.

President Obama said, "For us to say that you've got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase."

The Truth: In order for SCOTUS to uphold the individual mandate, it had to be declared a tax.

Lie: If you like you're healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan.

The Truth: Nope, millions couldn't keep it. Turns out there was an assumption that people wouldn't be happy with their plan. As Glenn put it, "The responsibility for the lie is us. We liked our doctors and we shouldn't have liked them. We are stupid, and therefore, we need to be lied to."

Lie: Obamacare would be revenue-neutral and only cost $900 billion.

The Truth: Again, no. "Well, after his $900 billion promise, the next year cost was adjusted to $1.4 trillion. The next year, $1.7 trillion. The next year, again to $2 trillion. The next year it was $2.3. The latest, $2.6 trillion. How much do you love it now?" Glenn said.

Lie: It was supposed to insure all 48 million without insurance.

The Truth: "ObamaCare was supposed to insure all 48 million Americans who were without insurance. That was the compassionate thing to do. Even their most wildly ridiculous claims are that 9 million have been insured. $2.6 trillion for 9 million people. We still have 39 million people uninsured. Is that better than you predicted? I could go on," Glenn said.

"There are literally hundreds of lies we could highlight from this man, but my doctor says I have too much Obama for my blood pressure," Glenn said. "I hate being the guy telling you the President of the United States is a liar. I hate it. I hate it. I don't want to be this guy, but nobody else will say it."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
