Obama's Hypocrisy Toward Native Americans: Blocks Dakota Access Pipeline; Grabs Land in San Juan County

San Juan County, one of the poorest counties in Utah, is about to lose two million acres to the federal government. In an unprecedented land grab, Obama plans to take land from Native Americans to create a national monument --- all for their benefit, of course. While the president appears to honor sacred land at the Dakota Access Pipeline, San Juan Valley is a different story.

Commissioner Rebecca M. Benally --- Democrat, Native American and the first woman to be elected in San Juan County --- recently held a press conference to explain why her people vehemently oppose a Bears Ears National Monument.

"My constituents do not want a national monument in San Juan County. It's just another federal overreach with empty promises. As a Native American, we understand what broken treaties mean and broken promises. We've lived it for the last 200 years. So, what makes you think, President Obama, that you think you're doing the right thing?" Commissioner Benally said. "Your legacy, I hope we can soon forget. You're not doing it for the local people."

She continued with passion and purpose, noting how environmental groups romanticize their so-called noble efforts.

"This is a place of reverence, spirituality, where they gather medicinal plants, wood to heat their home and cook, hunt. You're taking that away. There is no such thing like a special proclamation that can be done by the president. This is a congressional authority that has to happen. You've been lied to by environmental groups. Environmental groups, I'm here to tell you, stop romanticizing and stop pretending that you are doing this for Native American people. I've seen it time and time again. It is wrong, and I'm tired of you using my people, talking for them. It is wrong that you do this," Commissioner Benally said.

SIGN: Petition to Stop Bears Ears National Monument in Utah

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT), a vocal opponent of Obama's land grab in Utah, praised Commissioner Benally's impassioned plea.

"I can find no better example of the irony and hypocrisy of an administration bent on railing against neocolonialism and purporting to defend the poor and disenfranchised," Sen. Lee said.

Commissioner Benally, a member of the Navajo Tribe, offered a few words about trust between Native Americans and the federal government.

"I want to tell you about trust. There is no trust. We as Native Americans do not trust the federal government," the Commissioner said.

The people of Utah need these lands. They love these lands, and use them to survive and honor their heritage. Sign the petition to stop Bears Ear National Monument in Utah.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
