Obama downplays Islamic terrorism and lectures on gun control

In his third ever address from the Oval Office, President Obama's speech following the terror attack in San Bernardino --- not surprisingly --- fell flat with his usual lackluster performance and reliance on progressive liberal talking points.

In the wake of the worst terrorist attack in America since 9/11, most U.S. presidents would have used this opportunity to announce new policies to keep Americans safe, like changes to an irresponsible immigration plan and an ineffective vetting system for visa-seeking foreigners. Instead, Obama blamed guns and warned against Islamophobia.

"As we become better at preventing complex, multifaceted attacks like 9/11, terrorists turn to less complicated acts of violence like the mass shootings that are all too common in our society," Obama said.

Let's get this straight. The president considers a well-coordinated terror attack by a pair of radical Muslims who reportedly swore their allegiance to ISIS, leaving 14 people dead, a "less complicated" act of violence? No, Mr. President, this was absolutely not a "common" mass shooting.

Pitch hitting for Glenn, his co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere pointed out some of the logistical errors of Obama's speech during The Glenn Beck Program Monday.

"He didn't seem to be looking at the camera at any point during the speech," Stu said. "I don't know if the teleprompter was on the left side of the room, but he was looking there instead of in the camera."

Also at odds with past presidential addresses from the Oval Office, Obama used a podium rather than sitting at his desk.

"In a speech in the Oval Office, they sit behind the desk. It's the Resolute desk. And the president is supposedly resolute," Pat said. "And so it would be great if the president sat behind the Resolute desk while being resolute and gave a resolute-ish speech."

Obama went on to blame the terror attack on everything but the obvious --- Islam.

"As groups like ISIL grow stronger amidst the chaos of war in Iraq and Syria, and as the internet erases the distance between countries, we see growing efforts by terrorists to poison the minds of people like the Boston Marathon bombers and the San Bernardino killers," Obama said.

Pat had a bone to pick with that line as well.

"You blame the internet instead of the ideology. You blame the gun instead of the shooter," Pat said. "This is what he does."

Obama went on to say that gun control is a matter of national security. He actually said there are "some that reject any gun safety measures."

"You like how he puts that? There's not a single person alive who rejects gun safety measures, you moron," lamented Pat. "Gun safety measures are what the NRA is all about."

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
