Say It Ain't So: Glenn Predicts One More Obama SOTU

Tonight on TheBlaze TV, Glenn and his cohorts will watch the State of the Union in what's been dubbed Political Science Theater 3000.

"It's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the State of the Union," Glenn explained. "We did it last year, and it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding."

While Glenn has been saying this would be the last SOTU by Obama, he made an unfortunate prediction Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program: Obama will give one more State of the Union address before leaving office.

"No way this president gives up a chance to say, 'And here's what I've accomplished.' No way," Glenn declared. "Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union."

GLENN: So I'm looking at the past State of the Union addresses and their dates. Yes, I have absolutely no life. But looking at the dates of the State of the Union address, particularly this president's dates of the State of the Union address makes me say, "This is not going to be this president's last State of the Union." Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: Wait. What?

GLENN: He's not going to give up the presidency. I knew it. I knew it. Marshal law is right around the corner.

Well, that's one way to look at it. The other is with facts. I don't think this is going to be the last time we hear from the president in a State of the Union. I'll tell you why, right now.

(music)

(laughter)

GLENN: This is incredible.

(laughter)

I hope I'm wrong on this. Okay.

We've been celebrating that tonight we're going to be doing Political Science Theater 3000. And it's on TheBlaze. And it's the four of us sitting on a couch watching the -- watching the State of the Union and you can watch it with us as we comment all the way through. We did it last year. And it's the only way to watch it without your head exploding. It's lots of fun. Political Science Theater. And you can watch it tonight only on TheBlaze. Sign up for TheBlaze TV at TheBlaze.com/TV. So we've been saying, this is the last one. There's the good news. This is the last one.

Until you look at the dates that this president has given the State of the Union. Remember, the State of the Union comes when the president says he's going to deliver the State of the Union.

If you go back into the 1960s and John F. Kennedy, it was January 11th. January 14th. January 8th. January 4th. January 12th. January 10. January 17. January 14.

So in the 1960s, it was in the first two weeks of January. Then you go down and you look at -- let's just pick it up at 2004. January 20th. February 2nd. January 31st. January 23rd. January 28. February 24th. This first one, Barack Obama. February 24th. January 27. January 25. January 24. February 12th. January 28. January 20th.

What's the date today? Is today the 12th?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That's the earliest one in a decade. Why do I say this is going to be the -- why do I say the president is not going to be -- this isn't going to be the last one? Because the last big, huge progressive president we had was Jimmy Carter. And on January 16th, 1981, he gave his last State of the Union. Everybody else gives that State of the Union to the next president.

PAT: So four days before Reagan took office, he's delivering the State of the Union address.

GLENN: He's delivering the State of the Union.

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter. Everybody else gives it to the next guy.

JEFFY: No way.

GLENN: No way this president gives up a chance to say, "And here's what I've accomplished." No way. Mark my words. Next year, he will deliver another State of the Union.

STU: I love this prediction. So Carter did it.

GLENN: Carter did it. Nobody else.

STU: Huh.

GLENN: Carter did it.

PAT: Bush certainly didn't do it.

GLENN: No, uh-uh. Clinton didn't do it. Reagan didn't do it. All of them leave it for the next guy.

STU: So he's essentially -- do you think he's doing it early this year to kind of prep people for, this is the time it happens?

GLENN: Yes, yes. Because all of them have been in late January or early February.

PAT: I'm not trying to steal their thunder. I did it last year on the 12th.

GLENN: You bet. You bet. You bet.

PAT: That's what he's going to do.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: He's going to do another State of the Union next year. Mark my words. Write that down in your calendar.

JEFFY: Stu, what was it you were saying earlier about no hope?

STU: Yeah, that's fascinating. You can say that if it's never been done before, what are the odds that he's going to come up with this new practice? But Jimmy Carter did it.

GLENN: Jimmy Carter did it. And they're the same kind of guy.

JEFFY: And they're able to say, "He's not the first one to have done it."

GLENN: That's right. Jimmy Carter did this back in 1981.

STU: But, I mean, think of the Carter circumstance too. A radical shift in the direction of the country.

GLENN: Yes. If it's Ted Cruz, he definitely does it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He definitely does it.

STU: I mean, if it's Hillary, you think it's less likely. But also, he's not exactly in love with Hillary. So...

GLENN: No, he's an egomaniac.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: He's not going to let that last stage -- that last chance for him to say something eloquent, uplifting, and stirring, and have the waters recede after he speaks. He's going to take that opportunity. You know it. You know it.

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.

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."
