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?

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."
