Media Gasps at State Department Lies: 'Never Said No Boots on the Ground'

A State Department spokesperson blatantly lied to a reporter questioning an announcement about putting boots on the ground in Syria.

Then again, what's new?

Glenn played a clip of the exchange as well as ample audio evidence of this administration's repeated declarations there would absolutely be "no boots on the ground" in Iraq, Afghanistan or Syria.

"They don't care anymore," Glenn said. "And you know why they don't care anymore? It's not the media's fault. It's our fault."

Glenn continued.

"Is anybody going to say anything? Is anybody going to do anything? If you don't rise up and say, 'Enough with the lies' --- but what are we doing? We're about to elect a lie artist," Glenn said. "The northeast is about to elect a guy who is the Picasso of lies."

GLENN: Now, you can take our word for it, or you can take this as evidence.

OBAMA: I do not foresee a scenario in which boots on the ground in Syria, American boots on the ground in Syria, would not only be good for America, but also would be good for Syria.

VOICE: With respect to boots on the ground, profoundly, no, there will be no boots on the ground. The president has said that again and again. And there is nothing in this authorization that should contemplate it. And we reiterate no boots on the ground.

OBAMA: What we're not talking about is an open-ended intervention. This would not be another Iraq or Afghanistan. There would be no American boots on the ground. Any action we take would be limited, both in time and scope.

VOICE: To be clear, as we've said repeatedly, our strategy does not involve US troops on the ground in either Iraq or Syria. And no US troops will be in Syria as part of the train and equip program.

OBAMA: I will not put American groups on the ground in Syria.

GLENN: Back to yesterday.

VOICE: For months and months and months, that the mantra from the president and everyone else in the administration has been no boots on the ground. And now --

VOICE: No. That is not true. That's just not true, man.

VOICE: What? It is.

GLENN: I mean, that is crazy.

PAT: How do you make that claim? How?

GLENN: That is crazy. Oh, man, we have got -- we as a nation have got to get a handle on the lies.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: When they -- they don't care anymore. And you know why they don't care anymore? It's not the media's fault. It's our fault. It's our fault.

For a year now -- longer than that. Longer than that. Probably for the last four years, we have had an internal argument in -- on this show, "Glenn, somebody has to correct the record." And I've been saying, "Nobody cares anymore. I can't do it anymore because nobody cares anymore." And Pat and Stu and Jeffy have been saying every day, "Glenn, somebody has to correct the record. If nobody corrects the record, then it just stands. I stand by, nobody cares." There it is. Is anybody going to say anything? Is anybody going to do anything? If you don't rise up and say, "Enough with the lies" -- but what are we doing? We're about to elect a lie artist. We're about -- as the people who are supposed to have principles, we're about to -- tonight, the northeast is about to elect a guy who is the Picasso of lies.

Now -- oh, yeah. I was going to say he -- that's an insult on Picasso because Picasso was really good. But his lies were like Picasso. Yep, that's a face. No, it's not. The nose is where the ear is supposed to be. And everyone can see it. No, no. That's beautiful. It looks just like a face. The Picasso of lies.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
