The Dangerous Marxist Terrorist Obama Released From Prison

While most everyone is talking about President Obama commuting the sentence of traitor Bradley Manning, there's another release that should garner as much attention.

"Yesterday, the president released Oscar Lopez Rivera. Who is he? A Puerto Rican nationalist and one of the leaders of FALN (Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional or Armed Forces of National Liberation)," Glenn said Wednesday on radio.

In 1981, Lopez was convicted and sentenced to 55 years in federal prison for seditious conspiracy, the use of force to commit robbery, interstate transportation of firearms and conspiracy to transport explosives with an intent to destroy government property. In 1988, Rivera was sentenced to an additional 15 years for conspiring to escape from Leavenworth. He was one of the 14 convicted FALN members offered conditional clemency by Bill Clinton in 1999, but rejected the offer.

"Let me tell you how bad this guy is," Glenn said. "In 1980, a robber breaks into an apartment. He's so freaked out by what he finds, he goes to the police and says, Hey, I want to tell you something. I was trying to rob this guy's house. You guys need to know what I found."

What did he find? Oscar Lopez Rivera's apartment, full of high-end explosives and plans of government buildings in Chicago.

"Why is this guy so important to pardon? Who is influencing the president to bring him up on his radar? Why does he even know about this guy? I don't keep track of the Marxist terrorists that are in prison," Glenn said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Okay. I have a few things to say today about Barack Obama and about the release of prisoners.

Everyone is paying attention to who is being called Chelsea Manning. I'm sorry. It's Bradley Manning. You can identify. But that doesn't mean I have to identify. It doesn't mean I have to play into your madness. You want to have the surgery, have the surgery, and I will say you're a woman. But until you have had the surgery -- and even then, I'm giving you a gift. You're still biologically a man.

But I'll go with it. But I'm not going to go over the cliff with the rest of humanity and deny science. Don't call me a science denier. I'm not going to deny science.

So, anyway -- why we're even talking about that is irrelevant, except I think that's why the president released Bradley Manning because he's struggling with his sexuality. Is that why we released him? Why did we release this guy? Seriously.

STU: That was not part of their justification for the move.

GLENN: Okay. Good. I'm glad to hear that. The op-eds I read about it yesterday or last night were all saying they thought that was what played the big role.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: I can't believe that. I don't want to believe that.

PAT: Oh, I absolutely would believe that.

JEFFY: Oh, me too.

PAT: Wouldn't you believe that?

JEFFY: Me too.

GLENN: I don't want to believe it.

PAT: Can you believe that? That makes perfect sense. That makes perfect sense in this mad world of Barack Obama.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: I don't think that's what played.

PAT: It may or may not have, I don't know.

GLENN: The other guy -- we'll get back to Bradley Manning. Because that is offensive.

PAT: Even Democratic senators are speaking out against that. And we'll play some.

GLENN: The other guy he released at the same time, not the general, the Marxist terrorist --

PAT: From Chicago.

GLENN: And nobody is talking about him. And I want to have a -- a conversation with those on the left that now fear Donald Trump, that say you can't compare the two, I want to show you why you're wrong, next.

GLENN: Yesterday, the president released Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Who is he? A Puerto Rican nationalist and one of the leaders of FALN. F-A-L-N. In 1981, Lopez was convicted and sentenced to 55 years in federal prison for seditious conspiracy, the use of force to commit robbery, interstate transportation of firearms, conspiracy to transport explosives with an intent to destroy government property. He was also in '88 sentenced to an additional 15 years for conspiring to escape from Leavenworth. He's one of the 14 convicted FALN members, offered conditional clemency by Bill Clinton in '99, but he rejected the offer. Why?

First, let me tell you how bad of a guy this guy is. In about 1980, in Chicago -- Chicago, huh. Another connection to Chicago. And that circle of friends of Barack Obama that exists. I'm sure he knows about this guy because of his connections to the circle of old Marxists in Chicago. I could be wrong.

But that is something that if the media took serious, we could dismiss. So in 1980, a robber breaks into an apartment. He's so freaked out by what he finds, he goes to the police and says, "Hey, I want to tell you something. I was trying to rob this guy's house. You guys need to know what I found."

Now, that takes something, doesn't it? So what did he find?

He found an apartment full of explosives. High-end explosives. And plans of government buildings in Chicago.

This is a group that is a communist, Marxist, radical group that wants freedom for Puerto Rico to become a communist state. Cuba. And this is one of them.

He's one of the 14 convicted members. He was tied directly to the bombing of one federal building and to the -- the explosives and the plans in that apartment.

He said he's a freedom fighter. He's an avowed communist. He's an avowed -- I would call him terrorist. But he says everything that he has done, he has done and was justified.

He said this is a -- an illegal court. I'm not going to participate in this trial.

He didn't participate. He's admitted it. He has stood on that he was right and that he would do it again. In '99, will you take the deal and say you don't have anything to do with it, you're not going to be involved? No. In '99.

He has been an avowed Marxist, communist terrorist since the 1970s. And Barack Obama decides to pardon him.

Now, what are the details of this? Who is this guy? Why is this guy so important to pardon?

Who is influencing the president to bring him up on his radar? Why does he even know about this guy? I don't keep track of the Marxist terrorists that are in prison.

Who is? They obviously influenced Bill Clinton because Bill Clinton, I don't think, was hanging out with Marxist revolutionaries. Maybe he was. But he didn't have a history of it.

Barack Obama does. And then when he does things like this, it makes people who think that Marx was wrong, always wrong, and every time it's tried, it ends in violence and massive graves, were concerned.

And because everyone on the left dismissed it, mocked, and ridiculed, we started to think, gosh, everybody is. Everybody on the left, everybody who is a Democrat must be a Marxist, because they don't care.

I don't believe that's true. But as you're trying to figure out, why? Why does nobody trust the press? Why was everybody so freaked out about Barack Obama?

And Donald Trump, you know, he's clearly a bad guy. This guy had nothing. He was just a great guy and a hero and an all-American guy.

No. There were many things he said and more things that he did that verified concern that he has serious Marxist tendencies and surrounded by bad people.

I can understand why you fear the next guy. Please, if we're going to make progress, you have to understand why we feared the last guy.

If you can admit that and say, "Ah, I see and your fears are valid," just like I say, "I see and I can -- I can validate your fears. I may not agree with them, but they're valid," then and only then can we make progress. But somebody on the left has got to step forward and say that. But it will take massive, massive cojones because you're not going to be popular with your side.

5 SURPRISING ways space tech is used in your daily life

Is your vacuum cleaner from SPACE?

This week, Glenn is discussing his recent purchase of a Sputnik satellite, which has got many of us thinking about space and space technology. More specifically, we've been wondering how technology initially designed for use outside Earth's atmosphere impacted our lives down here on terra firma. The U.S. spent approximately $30 billion ($110 billion in today's money) between the Soviet launch of Sputnik in 1957 and the Moon Landing in 1969. What do we have to show for it besides some moon rocks?

As it turns out, a LOT of tech originally developed for space missions has made its way into products that most people use every day. From memory foam to cordless vacuums here are 5 pieces of space tech that you use every day:

Cellphone camera

Have you ever seen a photograph of an early camera, the big ones with the tripod and curtain, and wondered how we went from that to the tiny little cameras that fit inside your cellphone? Thank NASA for that brilliant innovation. When you are launching a spaceship or satellite out of the atmosphere, the space onboard comes at a premium. In order to make more room for other equipment, NASA wanted smaller, lighter cameras without compromising image quality, and the innovations made to accomplish this goal paved the way for the cameras in your phone.

Cordless vacuums and power tools

When exploring the moon, NASA wanted astronauts to use a drill to collect samples from the lunar surface. The problem: the moon has a severe lack of electrical outlets to power the drills. NASA tasked Black & Decker with developing a battery-powered motor powerful enough to take chunks out of the moon. The resulting motor was later adapted to power cordless power tools and vacuums in households across America.

Infrared ear thermometer

What do distant stars and planets have in common with your eardrum? Both have their temperature read by the same infrared technology. The thermometers that can be found in medicine cabinets and doctors' offices across the world can trace their origins back to the astronomers at NASA who came up with the idea to measure the temperature of distant objects by the infrared light they emit.

This one may seem obvious, but sometimes you need a massively complicated problem to come up with simple solutions. During the Space Shuttle program, NASA had a big problem: hydroplaning. Hydroplaning is dangerous enough when you are going 70 miles an hour in your car, but when you're talking about a Space Shuttle landing at about 215 miles per hour, it's an entirely different animal. So what was NASA's space-age solution? Cutting grooves in the pavement to quickly divert water off the runway, a practice now common on many highways across the world.

Memory foam

If you've ever slept on a memory foam mattress, it probably won't come as a shock to find out that the foam was created to cushion falls from orbit. Charles Yotes was an astronautical engineer who is credited with the invention of memory foam. Yotes developed the technology for the foam while working on the recovery system for the Apollo command module. The foam was originally designed to help cushion the astronauts and their equipment during their descent from space. Now, the space foam is used to create some of the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. Far out.

5 most HORRIFIC practices condoned by WPATH

Whatever you know about the "trans movement" is only the tip of the iceberg.

In a recent Glenn TV special, Glenn delved into Michael Schellenberger's "WPATH files," a collection of leaked internal communications from within the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). Glenn's research team got their hands on the WPATH files and compiled the highlights in Glenn's exclusive PDF guide which can be downloaded here. These documents reveal the appalling "standards" created and upheld by WPATH, which appear to be designed to allow radical progressive surgeons to perform bizarre, experimental, and mutilating surgeries on the dime of insurance companies rather than to protect the health and well-being of their patients. These disturbing procedures are justified in the name of "gender-affirming care" and are defended zealously as "life-saving" by the dogmatic surgeons who perform them.

The communications leaked by Schellenberger reveal one horrific procedure after another committed in the name of and defended by radical gender ideology and WPATH fanatics. Here are five of the most horrifying practices condoned by WPATH members:

1.Trans surgeries on minors as young as 14

One particular conversation was initiated by a doctor asking for advice on performing irreversible male-to-female surgery on a 14-year-old boy's genitals. WPATH doctors chimed in encouraging the surgery. One doctor, Dr. McGinn, confessed that he had performed 20 such surgeries on minors over the last 17 years!

2.Amputation of healthy, normal limbs

BIID, or Body Integrity Identity Disorder, is an “extremely rare phenomenon of persons who desire the amputation of one or more healthy limbs or who desire a paralysis.” As you might suspect, some WPATH members are in favor of enabling this destructive behavior. One WPATH commenter suggested that people suffering from BIID received "hostile" treatment from the medical community, many of whom would recommend psychiatric care over amputation. Apparently, telling people not to chop off perfectly healthy limbs is now considered "violence."

3.Trans surgeries on patients with severe mental illnesses

WPATH claims to operate off of a principle known as "informed consent," which requires doctors to inform patients of the risks associated with a procedure. It also requires patients be in a clear state of mind to comprehend those risks. However, this rule is taken very lightly among many WPATH members. When one of the so-called "gender experts" asked about the ethicality of giving hormones to a patient already diagnosed with several major mental illnesses, they were met with a tidal wave of backlash from their "enlightened" colleges.

4.Non-standard procedures, such as “nullification” and other experimental, abominable surgeries

If you have never heard of "nullification" until now, consider yourself lucky. Nullification is the removal of all genitals, intending to create a sort of genderless person, or a eunuch. But that's just the beginning. Some WPATH doctors admitted in these chatlogs that they weren't afraid to get... creative. They seemed willing to create "custom" genitals for these people that combine elements of the two natural options.

5.Experimental, untested, un-researched, use of carcinogenic drugs 

Finasteride is a drug used to treat BPH, a prostate condition, and is known to increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer as well as breast cancer. Why is this relevant? When a WPATH doctor asked if anyone had used Finasteride "to prevent bottom growth," which refers to the healthy development of genitals during puberty. The answer from the community was, "That's a neat idea, someone should give it a go."

If your state isn’t on this list, it begs the question... why?

The 2020 election exposed a wide range of questionable practices, much of which Glenn covered in a recent TV special. A particularly sinister practice is the use of private money to fund the election. This money came from a slew of partisan private sources, including Mark Zuckerberg, entailed a host of caveats and conditions and were targeted at big city election offices— predominantly democratic areas. The intention is clear: this private money was being used to target Democrat voters and to facilitate their election process over their Republican counterparts.

The use of private funds poses a major flaw in the integrity of our election, one which many states recognized and corrected after the 2020 election. This begs the question: why haven't all states banned private funding in elections? Why do they need private funding? Why don't they care about the strings attached?

Below is the list of all 28 states that have banned private funding in elections. If you don't see your state on this list, it's time to call your state's election board and demand reform.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked?
