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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
