Glenn Highlights Obama's Lies the Mainstream Media Ignored

The mainstream media demonstrated a habit of ignoring lie after lie uttered by Barack Obama during his presidency. Glenn took a moment during his radio program Monday to highlight a just a few.

"I just want to show the press some of the things that were said by Barack Obama that you were silent on," Glenn said. "And this is what we heard, and we wondered why you didn't stop and say, 'Hey, that wasn't true.'"

Listen to the segment above or read the transcript below.

GLENN: Some great phone calls. 888-727-BECK. We're going to get to them here in just a second.

I just want to show the press some of the things that were said by Barack Obama that you were silent on. And this is what we heard, and we wondered why you didn't stop and say, "Hey, that wasn't true." Here's just a couple of things...

OBAMA: You can keep your plan if you are satisfied with it.

If you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like your plan --

GLENN: Okay. We knew that that wasn't true from the very beginning. We knew that wasn't true.

PAT: We said it over and over and over again.

GLENN: Right. You didn't get there until it was too late. You could have done the homework that we did and said, "Read the bill. There's no way you'll be able to keep your doctor. There's no way." But you didn't. You called us conspiracy theorists, until it was too late.

But once you got there and it was too late, it no longer mattered. It had already passed.

OBAMA: I'm in this race to tell the lobbyists in Washington that their days of setting the agenda are over.


PAT: Uh-huh.

OBAMA: They -- they have not funded my campaign.

PAT: Lie.

OBAMA: They will not work in my White House.


PAT: Okay. They won't work at his -- other than the 64 he hired to work in his White House.

GLENN: Right.

JEFFY: They held his feet to the fire --

PAT: Yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: And the number one person that went to visit him was Richard Trumka, and number two I think was SEIU. Andy Stern.

PAT: Andy Stern. Andy Stern and his people.

GLENN: And where were you on the Trumka saying, "I talk to the White House every single day?" Where were you on that? When we were debating health care, who was pushing it?

SEIU and the AFL-CIO. And they were in touch with the White House every single day. But you didn't report on that. And when you did report on the fact that he was not going to put any of these lobbyists in the White House, it was very small and almost angelic, well, no president can do that, at the very beginning, at least that's the way I remember it.

Now, here's the next one.

OBAMA: As a society, we choose to underinvest in decent schools.

PAT: Do we?

OBAMA: We allow poverty to fester.

GLENN: Not true.

OBAMA: So that entire neighborhoods offer no prospect for gainful employment.

GLENN: Not true.

OBAMA: We refuse to fund drug treatment and mental health programs.


GLENN: Do we?

PAT: And here it comes.


OBAMA: We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.

PAT: I mean, that is absolutely ridiculous. That is ludicrous.

GLENN: Okay. Where were you on that? That is the most outrageous thing you could say, at a time when the country was trying to get our arms around school shootings, the president comes out and says it's easier to get a Glock than a book or a computer.

Now, here's what you're thinking, "Well, he didn't mean that literally. Just listen to the overall message. He didn't mean that literally." Well, wait a minute, isn't that the argument that Trump people are saying? He doesn't mean that literally? It's the overall direction.

Why is it okay for your side to say, "I've been thinking a lot about bombing the White House," and them not being marked as a terrorist. But if somebody on the right would have said, "I'm thinking about blowing up the White House," they would have forever been marked as a terrorist.

And if you don't think that's true, Sarah Palin were targeting these districts. That's the problem, press. It's not that complex. You don't need a focus group. It's not that complex.

And if you -- if there isn't someone -- if there isn't someone with the authority, I warn you, either this president or the next president will start to say we need to license reporters and journalists. We need to shut down those outlets that are telling alternative facts.

Now, those alternative facts are only -- get to be designated by the person in power. Press, you think you have the handle on the truth, but some day, there will be someone in that office who says, "That's not the truth, what I say is the truth, and I will deem what you can report and what you can't."

Now, you will believe this now. But I've been saying the same thing and warning you of this under Barack Obama. Not about Obama. That it will be him or the next guy or the next guy after.

I don't know who it will be. It will be this president, the next one, or the next one after, if we don't fix, A, the civility and plant reason firmly in her seat. Back in a minute.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
