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.

(applauding)

PAT: Uh-huh.

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

PAT: Lie.

OBAMA: They will not work in my White House.

GLENN: Lie.

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.

(applauding)

GLENN: Do we?

PAT: And here it comes.

no.

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.

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.
