If Obama Mocks Something, You Can Take the Exact Opposite to the Bank

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Obama over the past seven years it’s that he’s a man of his word. He means what he says and says what he means.

Wait, scrap that. How about he means the exact opposite of what he says and says the exact opposite of what he means. Yeah, that sounds more like it.

Moreover, the president has a nasty habit of mocking anything or anyone he disagrees with. (Can you say Saul Alinsky?)

“I'm trying to make a case that if he mocks you---not if he disagrees with you---if he mocks you when it comes to global conflict, you can take that to the bank, that the opposite is going to happen,” Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Think about it---the fruit cart salesman, Libya, Egypt, the Arab Spring, the caliphate, Guantanamo, Benghazi, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic terrorism---those are just a few issues the president has shrugged off as problematic, mocking anyone who thinks otherwise.

One new thing he mocked during the State of the Union was very telling. For the very first time, the president mocked anyone who believes World War III has begun. Anyone headed to the bank?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN:  Oh, yes!  The State of the Union last night.  We are -- we're hung over from it.  Woo!  Was that a wild party we had last night or what?

PAT:  Woo!  Yeah!

GLENN:  It was the moon HEP shot of all moon shots.  I'll tell you that now, I've changed my opinion on that man.  And I've also changed my opinion on climate change.  That's the problem.  To hell with Islamic terror.  First of all, I learned something about global warming.  And then I also learned that we're treating our veterans better than we ever.  Problem solved.  Problem solved.

He did have the courage to call ISIS "killers," not "Islamic killers."  He wanted to lecture us about how we use the word "Islamic."  We're going to start right there, right now.

(music)

GLENN:  I'm going to start making a list here, just a mental list, if we can.  I'll work on this.  A list of the things that the president has mocked -- not disagreed with, not just disagreed with, but disagreed so vehemently that he had to mock people about it.

For instance, he had to mock people about Tunisia and the fruit cart salesman, right?  If you disagreed with him on that, you were crazy.  You were a conspiracy theorist.  That that wasn't going to bring peace and stability.  Same thing with Libya.  Same thing with Egypt.  If you disagreed with the Arab Spring, you were crazy.  And he mocked anyone.

The caliphate is another one.  If you were against the caliphate.  How about Mitt Romney and Russia?  The '80s called back; they went their policies back.  Can you think of anything else that he's mocked on the global scale when it comes to danger and war?

He's mocked anybody who -- I don't know if he's mocked -- has he mocked anybody who has said that it's "Islamic terror," or has he just called you an evil person?  I'm looking for things that he mocked because he mocked something really important last night.

STU:  The Islamic terror thing is too serious to mock.

GLENN:  I know.

STU:  If you believe there's a possibility of a Muslim terrorist, you must not just be mocked.  You must be shunned.

GLENN:  I know.  I know.  He won't live in a world where anybody mocks the Prophet Muhammad.  True, he did say that.

STU:  True.  He did let us know.

GLENN:  Can you think of anything else he's mocked on the global scale?  He's mocked Russia.  He's mocking anybody who says about Iran, right?

STU:  Yeah.

GLENN:  Anybody who says that's a bad deal, he's mocking you.

STU:  If we're going to close Guantanamo and you think that's dangerous, you were mocked.

GLENN:  Okay.  Guantanamo.  Also, Benghazi, he mocked you on that.

Okay.  Here's -- I just want -- I'm trying to make a case that if he mocks you -- not if he disagrees with you -- if he mocks you when it comes to global conflict, you can take that to the bank, that the opposite is going to happen.

He is so off the -- here's one.  Islam is a religion of peace.  No, I'm sorry.  Muslim Brotherhood is largely secular.

If he says -- if he comes out and says that and you disagree and then he starts to paint you as a conspiracy theorist or something like that and he mocks you, you can take it to the bank that that is going to happen.

So what did he mock last night for the first time?  Stunning.  Stunning that he mocked it.

I didn't say it last night while we were -- because I couldn't.  I had a hard time even broadcasting.

PAT:  You're talking about the World War III thing?

GLENN:  Yes.  He mocked you if you believed that we were at the beginning of World War III.  Mocked you.

That's crazy.  Take it to the bank, we are at the beginning of World War III.  Don't take my word for it.  Take the president's -- the president says, "It's definitely not going to happen."  I think that is all the evidence that you need that it is definitely going to happen.  I've never seen a man more wrong when it comes to what the world is going to do and what our enemies are going to do.  I've never seen anybody more wrong.

It is -- he is either the most unlucky guy, or he is absolutely brilliant and lying to you because he's on the wrong side.

PAT:  Wonder which one it is.

GLENN:  I don't know.  I couldn't -- I don't know.

STU:  Deep thought there, Pat.  Hmm.

PAT:  Trying to noodle it out.

GLENN:  Now, it sounds again a little like sarcasm or ridicule.

STU:  Oh, no, he said he was noodling it.

PAT:  No, I'm noodling it.

GLENN:  You're noodling it?

PAT:  You know if I'm noodling, it's completely serious.

GLENN:  All right.  So you're noodling.  Do you have any -- how do we know when the noodles are done?

STU:  They stick to the wall.

PAT:  You start to smell the burning.

GLENN:  Right.  Okay.  All right.  That might be overdone.  I like mine a little al dente.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

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."
