Media Hypocrisy Alert! Politifact Launches Trump Golf Tracker

Remember that golf tracker on Politifact's website the past eight years? The one that monitored the frequency of President Obama's golf games? No? That's because it didn't exist. Evidently, it only matters when Republican presidents play golf. That's why the political fact-checking website recently added a Trump golf tracker.

"I just can't take the hypocrisy, and the absolute blindness," Glenn said Monday on radio. "We would come so far as a nation if somebody at PolitiFact would say, "You know what, we realized that we mocked George Bush and made it into a big deal and then we didn't do anything about Barack Obama. And that was wrong."

Should any president be playing golf when the country is in trouble? Who knows. But Politifact should report all of the facts on each president's golf habits and let people decide for themselves.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Have you heard the latest on just the golf thing with President Trump?

STU: Well, PolitiFact has launched a golf tracker. A Trump golf tracker to see how many times he's gone golfing.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Now, remember --

PAT: How is the Obama golf tracker on Politico. How long did that one last? A total of zero days.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: This is the thing. Because, remember, the Obama situation, when we were criticizing the golf of Obama was largely because the media was so against the golf of Bush.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Remember the media was all over Bush for how much he golfed.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. Yeah.

STU: And then Obama started golfing.

PAT: He only golfed during the first like nine months and then stopped after 9/11.

GLENN: Stopped. Because of the war.

STU: Stopped after Iraq. I could be wrong.

GLENN: Yeah, because of the war.

PAT: Okay. Maybe it was Iraq.

STU: But it was -- I remember it was because of the war. And he didn't want --

GLENN: Somebody said -- one of the people said, don't you think it's a little inappropriate that you're out here golfing when people are dying?

GLENN: And he said, yeah, I guess it is. And he stopped.

PAT: Yeah, and he believed that.

JEFFY: He stopped.

GLENN: I mean, as you see by his book, his painting now of the soldiers, that guy took sending boys to war seriously. It bothered him.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And so when somebody said, don't you think it -- he was like, yeah, you're right. It is. And he stopped.

STU: And he stopped golfing. So it was kind of a big day in media circles, the day Obama passed Bush in the amount of golf he had played. Because it was such a big deal. If you remember the trailer to Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, it was Bush golfing.

GLENN: Yep.

STU: It was like their central argument about him not caring.

GLENN: Yep. Yep.

PAT: And then they ignored it for eight years.

STU: For eight years, they ignored it. Now PolitiFact has launched a Trump golf tracker to see how many times.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: And, of course, so far, the Trump golf tracker -- because Barack Obama did not play his first round of golf until April 26, 2009.

So he went on to play 333 times in eight years. So far --

GLENN: 333 times. How long does it take the average person to play 333 rounds of golf?

STU: What is it? It's four to six hours. I mean, what's your total --

GLENN: Six hours maybe. I don't know. I don't play golf. Anybody?

STU: Four hours. Four hours is about --

PAT: Well, they got 333 rounds at 1665 hours. So whatever that is.

STU: Okay. 1665 hours of golf. Glenn is playing with his iPad. Well, he actually bought an R2 unit.

GLENN: My sister is -- my sister is --

STU: Blame your sister, right? Because your sister controls the volume of your iPad.

GLENN: No, no. Most people know not to text me while I'm on the show. I'm just saying. Anyway...

STU: Maybe. Well, the point is, right now, Donald Trump on the golf tracker, Trump 14 times, Barack Obama zero. And, of course, I -- if it was zero to zero, there would not be a golf tracker.

GLENN: Right.

STU: This is up here now.

GLENN: Oh, my God. Now it's my wife --

STU: Why can't you -- throw the thing across the room?

PAT: You don't have the volume?

GLENN: I got --

PAT: Okay.

STU: Power off is another option.

GLENN: I have to have it because I use it to check the news when we go into the breaks.

STU: In the breaks, you can turn the power on.

GLENN: That takes too long to boot the damn thing up.

STU: Anyway, 14-nothing. And they will keep this up -- they will keep updating this thing until Donald Trump decides to stop playing golf, and then Barack Obama passes him. And they will be like, there's no point for this golf tracker anymore. Trump is not playing golf. It's not relevant to the American people. And they'll delete that it was ever on the site. It's just so frustrating.

GLENN: I just can't take the hypocrisy. And the absolute blindness. The blindness.

You know, we would -- we would come so far as a nation if they would say -- if somebody at PolitiFact would say, you know what, we realized that we mocked George Bush and made it into a big deal. And then we didn't do anything about Barack Obama. And that was wrong.

You know, when the country is in trouble, should the president be playing golf? I don't know. Blah, blah. But here are the facts on all of the presidents playing golf. You decide.

I wouldn't have a problem with that.

But any time that they say anything about golf, all I think of is, where were you last time? Oh, yeah, that's right. Where were you on the body count last time of all the people who died during missions? Oh, that's right. You didn't care. Now suddenly you do again. Where were you -- you notice this Russian spy thing has completely quieted down. I am telling you, with each passing day, the reason why that's quieting down is because the Obama administration clearly was involved.

You have, what's her name from the National Security Council

STU: Susan Rice.

GLENN: Susan Rice. The minute she was involved, all of a sudden the media stopped talking about it.

JEFFY: Oh. Oh.

GLENN: Uh-oh.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."
