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.

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.
