Terrorism Doesn't Matter to Obama

President Obama's recent comment that ISIS doesn't present an existential threat to the United States clearly stands at odd with the facts. Why doesn't he take this threat more seriously? The president has a pattern of behavior when it comes to showing what he cares about --- and what he doesn't. His comments and demeanor following the attacks in Belgium reveal his disinterest in ISIS and terrorism. And people are starting to notice.

Michael Hayden, Former Director of the National Security Agency, recently said this about Obama's remarks from a ballpark in Cuba:

I'm going to say something that's going to sound pretty harsh, but I think it's true. That wasn't a mistake. That wasn't weakness. That was policy. His going to the ballpark and his spending less than a minute commenting on the attack. I actually believe in his heart of hearts, the president's policy is, that is not that big a deal. There are other things that are more important. And that was what he was messaging.

Veteran NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw also took notice.

You know, so much of politics and national security is a combination of symbolism and reality. The reality is that we did have that attack yesterday. It was unnerving to us. It was devastating in Europe. But at the same time, the symbolism is that the president stayed at the baseball game all day long. Well, you would have thought he would have said, "Look, we've got more business that I have to deal with. I wish you well." Get on the phone. "We've got to put together some kind of a bullet-proof syndicate to deal with all of this." There's a real urgency about it, and he's got to convey that, not just to the American people, but to the world. I think it was Mike Hayden who said earlier that he is a leader of the free world, and this is a time to be the leader.

Today on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn took a trip down memory lane to compare the president tone when he's passionate about something, and when he's not.

Anne Bayefsky, a member of the International Law Association Committee on Human Rights, said this the day after the attacks in Belgium.

Belgium attacks put the high commissioner's capacity building reports on state suffering from the scourge of Islamic terrorism into stark relief. Reports indicate that the attacks began with the terrorists, and I quote, shouting something in Arabic. Were they shouting "give me a job," or "my rights have been violated by Belgium law enforcement officers," or "I'm frustrated and losing hope because non-Muslims occupy what belongs to me?"

The high commissioner reports actually suggest such possibilities would make sense. For Palestinians who stab, mutilate, and gun down pregnant women, old men, and little children, are, quote, frustrated men who have, quote, lost hope and therefore understandably believe that the best way to create an apartheid Palestinian state is to kill the Jews who live there.

Now, this line of reasoning, however, is somewhat problematic for effective capacity building. It's not quite fashionable for ISIS or al-Qaeda or the Taliban to call people martyrs who blow body parts off Europeans or Africans from Libya to Yemen.

And yet the majority in this council has no problem with Palestinian leader Abasis HEP calling people martyrs, who blow body parts off Israelis.

Now, one might say this is exactly where the high commissioner can offer moral clarity, given his reports' constant references to equality. Instead, according to the high commissioner, some human rights victims are more equal than others.

In 2015, says his annual report, the only religious group the world over that experienced racial discrimination, xenophobia, and related intolerance worth mentioning are Muslims.

"That speech was given the day after Belgium at the U.N.," Glenn said. "And the room was empty. She is speaking truth."

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
