Glenn Beck: The Barack Obama test


The Audacity of Deceit: Barack Obama's War on American Values

By Brad O'Leary

GLENN: Well, Brad O'Leary has got a book out, The Audacity of Deceit. And he's got an interesting section in here on the Barack Obama test, and he's taken the poll numbers explain how this works, Brad.

O'LEARY: Well, I took first I wrote the book about issues as opposed to his personal proclivities and I took the poll numbers that are out there from Gallup, Harris, Zogby, anyone, on statements he'd made publicly or things he put in his poll or votes he'd taken to see what the American public thought about the issues, and the book is based upon that, Second Amendment, spending, healthcare, taxes, social issues, energy, you name it.

GLENN: I mean, let's look at let's start with energy and taxes. Presently 85% of American energy comes from fossil fuels while 7% comes from alternative energy sources. Do you support or oppose increasing taxes on fossil fuels in an effort to force our nation to increase its reliance on alternative or renewable energy sources and reduce environmental pollution, even if doing so would mean that there would be times or that laws are eventually passed I'm sorry, that the costs are eventually passed on to the consumer. Obama's position is he supports the tax on increase on fossil fuels. 35% of all Americans say they are in his category. 60% oppose a tax increase on fossil fuels.

O'LEARY: Correct. And that's what we did was all of the questions out there, all of his positions, and we also have a website called the BarackObamatest.com and I might say the website in ten days has almost had 200,000 hits.

GLENN: Okay.

O'LEARY: And they tell me it could go close to a million in the next ten days. It's I did this for my kids and my grandkids, wrote the book for them, created the site for them and their friends and created the site as something friendly where a young person could spend five minutes of their time and get an overview of where Obama stood and if they were interested in more, they could buy the book because it's the only book out there written by a Republican on the issues.

GLENN: All right. So let's see here. Should the U.S. begin drilling for oil 50 miles off our shores? All Americans say yes. 68.1%. Obama's position, no, 23.4.

O'LEARY: And as you can see, Glenn, a lot of people know what his position is because he's been clear about it.

GLENN: But I guess what you're trying to show here is and because, what was it, Stu, 5% of people believe that Barack Obama is a conservative?

O'LEARY: Yes.

GLENN: 5 these people, 5%, we need to thin out the herd. 5% think they the guy is the most liberal guy in the Senate.

O'LEARY: Yes, that's true. But people my kids and my grandkids who were thinking of voting for him were voting for him because he was good looking, articulate and he was going to bring about change. They didn't know a single thing about what he stood for. And if you ask the majority of Americans in polls, can you tell us three things that Obama stands for, they can't tell you.

GLENN: Well, hope and change. I can't think of a third one. But okay, so the book is the Audacity of Deceit and it's in bookstores everywhere. And the website is

O'LEARY: The website is BarackObamatest.com and it is on bookstores. On Amazon we just passed Michael Moore.

GLENN: That's a hard one to get around.

O'LEARY: I can go to bed at night knowing I'm ahead of Michael Moore, I'm a happy camper. It's number 4 on Amazon. And everyone says it's a fun read. And I tried to create it for my kids and grandkids so they would read it.

GLENN: Okay. The Audacity of Deceit by Brad O'Leary. Brad, thanks, man. Appreciate it.

O'LEARY: Thank you.

GLENN: You bet. Bye bye.

You know, here's a really interesting one that he has here. How much should someone pay who wins a million dollars in the lottery pay federal income tax? How much in federal income tax should you pay if you win a million dollars? So you're a millionaire, you're rich, got a million dollars. How much? 35% or less, more than 35%, or not sure? Obama's position is more than 35%. All Americans, less than 35%, almost 70% of Americans say that. Now, my question is that's money you never even worked for and you say less than 35%. How about all those people who have been working their brains out for a million dollars?

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
