Insane: Obama calls climate change the "serious threat" facing America

While speaking at the Coast Guard Academy commencement ceremony, President Obama finally called out a threat to America and the world. No no, it wasn’t the Islamic State. Or Russia, or China, or Al-Qaeda. He decided to call out the problem of climate change. Is there any doubt this administration is completely detached from reality?

Below is a transcript of this segment:

Let's talk about what Obama has in store for us. Just for a moment. He's the commander-in-chief. A lot going on in the world. We have enemies. We have threats. We have problems. That's an understatement. We have big problems.

But we have a commander-in-chief who understands that there are problems. He will make sure that he tackles the issues that are really important. And he thinks about things. And he's going to tell us what the scariest thing for us is to avoid. You know what it is? Climate change, my friends. Number one national security threat facing the United States according to President Obama. Play what he had to say at the Coast Guard Academy

graduation.

OBAMA: This is not just a problem for countries on the coast or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. I'm here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security. An immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. And so we need to act. And we need to act now.

BUCK: That's insane. I don't know how better to put it than that. That's completely disconnected from reality. First of all, even the climate change screaming, wailing banshees out there. Even the ones who are just freaking about this all the time. Oh, climate change. We're all going to die. Have you seen a run on rubber boats, or what do they call it? A rubber dingy. A thing from a boat. Have you seen that recently? Is everyone buying up canoes in preparation for the melting glaciers? This is ridiculous. Right?

At best, they say, well, in 100 years, the sea level will rise six inches or something, and there will be a one-degree Celsius rise -- or .1-degree rise in global temperature or something like that. But it's in 50 years, 100 years. You know, it's a projection so far out, that it's impossible to disprove. Right?

You're like, I don't know what will happen in 100 years. They think they know. They can't predict the weather accurately a couple days in advance. But they can tell you what climate is going to be in 100 years. Sure. Sure, they can. Even more amazing than that. The president, despite all the stuff that's going on, despite China building islands in the middle of the South China Sea, that it can use as military and naval bases, despite Russia engaging in very bellicose and aggressive behavior against its neighbors, despite the growth of the Islamic State, the continued existence of al-Qaeda and the various other jihadist entities around the world sworn to destroy us and Israel and civilization with it, despite all of that, climate change.

Woo, scary. Spooky climate change. I don't know what to say to these people anymore. You see, they think that I'm crazy because I don't stay up at night worrying about this because I think they're a bunch of -- the scientists they rely on are largely a bunch of frauds. Many of them aren't even scientists. They just play one on TV. They're activists. I read a few science books and I know science stuff. E equals MC squared. Boom, #science. It doesn't really work that way. That's not how it goes. Scientists. Real scientists, well, first of all, they would never say stuff like the science is settled, or the consensus means that there can be no dissent or dispute because science is of course premised upon the continuous testing and retesting of hypotheses and results that can be replicated once you have the data.

Hmm. But they don't do that. They can't do that. So we have President Obama saying, everybody, you're going to be really scared. Your house will be on the water. I know you might like swimming. But this water will be very dirty. It's a big threat. Because you'll have to swim all over the place. It's tiring. Maybe you just ate lunch. You're going to get a cramp. So you don't want climate change. It's the biggest national security threat we face.

Is it really? That's the best that he -- that's the biggest one. This is the one that keeps the commander-in-chief up at night. This is the one that terrifies him. Climate change. I don't know what to say. They don't want to discuss it. They want to call people deniers. And they want to say the science is settled, when this is crazy. No one even holds these positions publicly. But, again, climate change is a religious belief for people who think they're too smart for religion.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
