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?

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

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.

Soros is trying to elect MORE TEXAS RINOs. Here's how YOU can stop him.

Texas is under threat of a George Soros-backed takeover.

Soros-funded RINO judges have been elected in some of the highest courts in Texas. These judges implemented restrictions that have blocked nearly a thousand cases of voter fraud from being investigated or prosecuted from across the state. These new restrictions are similar to ones in place in states like George, Arizona, and Wisconsin, leaving Texas more susceptible to election corruption than ever. If Texas falls to corruption, America will lose its largest bastion of conservative electoral power in the nation. Without Texas, Republicans WILL NOT be able to win national elections and liberal corruption will go unchecked across the country.

Fortunately, there is a way to stop this: YOU.

If you live in Texas you have a chance to stand up against corruption and to fight back! Starting Tuesday, February 20th, early voting for the primaries begins, where three of these judges are up for election. Go out and vote. If the right people are voted in, there's a good chance the restrictions will be lifted and election fraud can once again be prosecuted.

But remember, you can't just go in and vote for anyone who has an "R" next to their name. Sorors knows that a registered Democrat would never stand a chance in Texas, so his lackeys register as Republicans and ride the little "R" right into office. So who do you vote for?

Fortunately, Glenn had Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton on his show today and Ken gave us his list of judges that he vouches for. His list is as follows:

  • Gina Parker
  • Lee Finley
  • David Schenck
The Primary Election runs from February 20th to March 5th. This is your chance to get out there and make a difference. It might be the most important election you ever participate in. If you need to know where your nearest polling location is, or any other information regarding the election, you can go to votetexas.gov to find out more.
It's time to stand up.

Hypocrisy EXPOSED: The 'Amazon Files' and what WE are doing about it

Who is really banning books?

For years now, Conservatives have been taking flak from the left for supposed "book bans." The left likes to compare these "bans" to Nazi book burnings, accusing the right of sweeping authoritarian decrees designed to suppress information. In reality, this is a movement largely motivated by parents, who want to remove inappropriate books from children's libraries.

But if you want to discuss authoritarian book bans, look no further than the White House. As Glenn recently covered, the Biden administration has been pressuring the world's largest bookseller, Amazon, into suppressing books they disagree with.

On February 5th, 2024, Ohio Representative Jim Jordan released a slew of subpoenaed documents that exposed pressure placed on Amazon by the Biden Administration. The documents, which Jordan dubbed "The Amazon Files" after Elon Musk's "The Twitter Files," revealed an email conversation between Andrew Slavitt, a former White House senior adviser, and Amazon employees. In these emails, Slavitt complained that the top search results for books on "vaccines" were "concerning" and then requested that Amazon intervene. Amazon initially refused, not out of some altruistic concern for the free exchange of information. They thought any action taken would be "too visible" and would further exasperate the “Harry/Sally narrative,” referring to the outrage that followed Amazon's removal of Ryan T. Anderson’s book When Harry Became Sally.

Despite this initial refusal, Amazon agreed to meet with the White House a few days later. The number one item on their agenda was removing books from the website. An Amazon employee even admitted that the reason they even took this meeting was due to the pressure being placed on them by the Biden Administration.

What was the result of this meeting? Amazon caved. They began to implement ways of limiting the outreach of books that challenged the mainstream vaccine narrative and other books the White House might not like.

The White House was caught red-handed pressuring the world's largest bookseller to restrict the sale of books they consider in opposition to their narrative, and they have the gall to accuse conservatives of information suppression. This is just ONE of many actions committed by the Biden Administration that are more characteristic of a dictator than a president.

What can you do about it? Fortunately, you are not dependent on Amazon and its corrupted algorithm to help you find books. Every week right here on GlennBeck.com, we highlight books that Glenn is reading or talking about in our "Glenn's Bookshelf" series. Here you can find a wide selection of books free from Amazon's filters. Be sure to sign up for Glenn's newsletter to find out about new additions to "Glenn's Bookshelf" every week.

10 times Biden has acted like a DICTATOR

The left-wing media's most recent tirade is accusing Trump of being a dictator. But, as Glenn said, "Everything they're accusing us of, they're doing."

Since day one, the Biden administration has overstepped the bounds placed on the executive branch set by the Constitution. In Glenn's most recent TV Special, he examined ten times Biden acted like a dictator, NOT a president. Here are 10 of Biden's Dictator Moves, and click HERE to get ALL of the research that went into this week's Glenn TV special:

5 ways to protect your First Amendment rights. Number 4 will surprise you.

Buyenlarge / Contributor | Getty Images

Every day it seems Glenn covers another story revealing how people across the world at all levels of power DESPISE the fact that YOU have rights, and they are actively trying to curtail them. Recently, there has been a string of attacks against the rights outlined in the First Amendment: the freedom of religion, the freedom of speech, the freedom of press, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom to petition.

As a refresher, the First Amendment reads as follows:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

This is powerful stuff, there is a good reason the Founding Fathers made it the FIRST Amendment. It's also the reason why power-hungry elites are attacking it. These attacks are designed to control the way you think, speak, and believe, vote, what you read, and who holds your representatives responsible. The First Amendment is our strongest weapon against tyrants, and they know it.

So what can you do about it? Hope that some wig in Washinton will eventually do something? We know how well that works. The best thing to do is to stay active, engage in the issues you care about, and exercise your rights.

So where to start? Here are a few things YOU can do to protect your First Amendment rights:

Religion

The best way to flex your Freedom of Religion is to—you guessed it—practice your faith. Become an active member in your place of worship, go to scripture studies, invite your friends to that late afternoon event, and walk the life. This can impact the way you spend money as well. Shop the businesses and brands that share your values, and don't shop at the ones that scorn them. Keeping the community alive and healthy is the best way to ensure that generations to come will be able to experience the freedom you enjoy.

Speech

Much like religion, the best way to protect your freedom of speech is... to speak. Engage your friends and family in polite, civil conversation. Stand up for what you believe in, and make your case to your peers. Just remember to keep it friendly. No one ever won an argument by shouting down their opponent. The civil exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic, and a dialogue where the participants are well-informed, considerate, compassionate, and open-minded can have permanent impacts on all involved.

Press

Freedom of the Press seems a little tricky at first. Unless you work for the media, what are you supposed to do? Quit your job and go work for the local newspaper? The good news is that exercising this right is not nearly that difficult. In fact, you are currently doing it. The best thing you can do is to read from outlets that produce informative content.

Assembly

Freedom of assembly is one of the more impactful yet underutilized freedoms in the First Amendment. Peaceably assembling and protesting with like-minded individuals can hugely influence politicians and policies while simultaneously creating community and fellowship between attendees. It's understandable why more people don't turn out. We're all busy people with busy schedules, and flying out to D.C. for the weekend seems like a daunting task to many. Thankfully, you don't have to go out all the way to D.C. to make a difference. Gather some like-minded people in your town and bring awareness to issues that impact your community. Big change starts locally, and exercising your freedom to assemble can be the catalyst to lasting impact.

Petition

If you've been a long-time listener of Glenn, then you will have heard a few of his calls to action where he asks his audience to contact their representatives about a particular piece of policy. There is a good reason Glenn keeps on doing those: they work. Whether it's your local mayor or your senator, a call and an email go a long way. If you really want to make a change, convince your friends and family to reach out as well.
