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."

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."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
