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.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
