Glenn Beck: Obama disconnected?



Living the Truth: Transform Your Life Through the Power of Insight and Honesty


by Keith Ablow

GLENN: Keith is a friend of mine and, you know, just a very good psychiatrist and an all around decent human being and also willing to say the tough things and he doesn't and he's you know, he's not a stupid man. He just doesn't say things that yeah, this will get a lot of he's not that kind of guy. I asked him a couple of weeks ago when I saw the President's response to Fort Hood, when he came out and he gave, you know, a speech about the native Americans for two minutes or three minutes and then it was, like, Oh, yeah, by the way, Fort Hood happened, something was wrong and I asked him to look into it and tell me his thoughts. What was it we were talking about yesterday, Pat, about and I said, get Keith after low on the phone, because there was another, there was yet another disconnect with President Obama. He had another sign that this guy is living in a different world. I don't understand what this is. I don't know what's going on. Keith is with us how. Hi, Keith.

Ablow: Hey, Glenn. How are you?

Glenn: I'm good. Tell me, first of all, is it healthy to for the citizenry to ask these kind of questions of this guy seems disconnected, strangely connected to things that that most Americans don't even understand or they're, like, what? That's a problem? And then strangely disconnected to things like, oh, I don't know, make a decision on the troops in Afghanistan.

Ablow: How could it be anything but healthy, unless we're to think of ourselves as three year olds with a parent we ought not question, up to make sense of the decisions and the thought processes of your leaders so that you can measure your own instincts, thoughts, and intentions against those things, so that you can say, Wait, does this person reflect whether he believe it or not and I think right now there are a lot of decisions that are being made by this administration that seem to be windows on the administration's thoughts and feelings but without a statement of principle that people can either sign on to or reject.

Glenn: Okay. We were talking about the bowing to the Japanese emperor and this is the second time he has bowed to a king. The President does not bow. The first time he did it in Saudi Arabia and they said, oh, well, he wasn't bowing. The Saudi king was seated and so he was just, like I didn't believe that at the time, but fine. Now he's done it and it was a 90 degree bow to the Japanese emperor which since George Washington we have never done. The White House lied about it. Our question was: When the people cried out last time and there was a problem, did he did he did he not just even care about what people said? Did is it possible

Ablow: Correct.

Glenn: that he did it again and he was, oops, I did it again. What does that mean?

Ablow: The actions of the President taken on their face would indicate that he has a particular philosophy that he sees as better than and justified more than particular feelings of patriotism or American ideals that the citizenry might hold dear. I think that his actions, if not his words, would say the country occupies no special place in safeguarding freedom particularly, no more than any other nation ought to and that we ought not think of ourselves as in any way elevated beyond anyone else's principles or deserving of a special seat at any table. So, we bow to foreign leaders, we apologize profusely for having stepped to the plate when we thought it was appropriate to defend the rights of people around the world. There is a tremendous retreat going on here and I think, if you put words to it, it might sound something like, I believe in the inherent goodness of people and that you may need to suffer a whole lot when you give up your seat at the table in terms of leadership and defending principles because who knows what's going to happen, but what flying the flag and defending it, that's no answer.

Glenn: Hold on just a second. Back in just a second. 1 888 727 BECK, 1 888 727 BECK.

(Out at 11:42 a.m.)

Glenn: Holy cow. Welcome back to the welcome back to the program. We have Keith Ablow. Keith?

Ablow: Yes.

Glenn: Keith Ablow is a psychiatrist and friend of mine, just a good guy, level headed guy. Pat and I were talking during the break. Pat, do you have the audio that from Andy Stern?

Pat: Yes.

Glenn: Listen to this audio.

Stern: Because workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore. It's the way we're going to have to do our work. We're trying to use the power of persuasion and if that doesn't work, we're going to use the persuasion of power, because there are governments and there are opportunities to change laws that effect these companies. I'm not naive. We're ready to strike. It started last summer with the so called big box. Unions in every Kmart, every Wal Mart labor wanted it; business didn't. We took names. We watched how they voted. We know where they live. There are opportunities in America to share better, to rebalance the power, and unions and governments are part of the solution.

Glenn: Okay. Stop. Okay. Keith, here's the guy who's been in the White House more than anybody else, 22 times. I think Hillary Clinton has shown up in the log four times. This is the guy who has designed the health care package, something that now has a lower approval rating than Hillary Care did and, yet, they're pushing it forward. They know they're not trying to hide anything. They are

Ablow: No, they're not.

Glenn: They're telling us, workers of the world unite, share the worth, redistribute the health.

Pat: New world order. Those were things that were never spoken 10 years ago. 15 years ago it was all conspiracy stuff. They're saying it out loud in the open.

Glenn: Why are we not hearing these things?

Ablow: Well, I think it's the language we're not used to hearing. We've had the benefit of responsive government. Whatever your party, whether you felt some in some ways marginalized at times or not, in general, there after way to be heard and a sensitivity to the needs and feelings of the population. What we may have here is someone with the galvanized steel clad perspective on sharing and distributing wealth, on moving dramatically towards socialism, on backing away from America as a leader in the world, toward freedom, using every means at its disposal and because that's a heartfelt value doesn't matter what people think. Who really thinks that it's smart to bring terrorists who knocked down buildings on 9 11 to the heart of Manhattan?

Pat: How do you get Americans

Ablow: whether people will suffer PTSD symptoms again and be retraumatized? Who's going who's accounting for whether people will avoid the city like the plague and cause an economic catastrophe for the city because no one will travel there during that time? In the name of what, exactly? And the answer, I think, is in the name of an unspoken principle so far, it hasn't been enunciated, but all the behaviors add up. We don't have

Glenn: You watch the show, Keith. Please tell me I'm wrong. I can only add these things up into something that is a consistent picture of a picture that looks nothing like the republic, looks nothing like the Constitution of the United States, looks nothing like the free market system.

Ablow: That is the direction I wish I Glenn, I would tell you that you're wrong because, look, my work is the thing that I care about the most about, is when people have a set of facts and they're misinterpreting them, often I can help them see something more accurately and change their lives or their perspective on the world and believe me, I would do it here if I thought you were wrong. If you add everything up and you say how can it be that the feelings of a whole population about bringing these people to the breast of the major metropolis in our nation is ignored, how can it be that someone can address a gathering after 13 people are murdered on a military base and dozens more injured and say nothing of it for two minutes other than that the native American agenda is being advanced by this President.

Glenn: So, how so, how is it how does the average person that is listening to my voice, the average person listening, gets it, is standing right there going, yep, I know, I know, but I can't get my friends to listen. How do you get the people who's I mean, you just stand there an say you look at these people and say, what the hell is wrong with you? What are you talking about? Listen. How do you get them to listen?

Ablow: And, look, I think you've got to give them fact after the fact after fact. Did we or didn't we elect a President who close to remain in a religious gathering with a pastor who was spewing hate and essentially catering toward the ruffled feathers of particular minority groups what were they angry, did he or didn't he stay there? Did he or didn't he have that two minute gap when he somehow didn't understand how we felt about losing American servicemen? Did he or did he not ignore the feelings of the city of Manhattan and this nation and decide to treat terrorists and people with whom we're at war as common criminals in a city that will be jeopardized potentially by doing so? All of these things need to be presented and then, look, here's another example. You know, they now raise the breast cancer age where you're supposed to get mammograms. You think this is disconnected? Don't do it at 40, do it at 50. You think that socialized medicine that, this health care plant isn't going to start monkeying around with what kind of preventive care is necessary to save money? Of course they are.

Glenn: They're denying now this is anything to do with raging. Bull crap

Ablow: Bologna. Of course it does. Listen, as I talked to three doctors today. Hey, just out of curiosity, guys, are your wives going to start going in still, even though they're 42, 44, 46? Oh, yeah, they're, even if we have to pay for it, they say.

Glenn: And they will.

Pat: Is it too late for the guys, if they're still, like, give them a chance, that doesn't mean is it just I mean, do you just move on? Do you just give up and move on to the next person or is it possible to get through to somebody who doesn't see it?

Glenn: One minute.

Ablow: I think it's absolutely possible to get through to people. You know, I deal with denial all the time. Sometimes people have to come to this office a dozen times instead of twice. They may have to watch your show 20 times, not three times, but eventually, you know what? People have a barometer of the truth inside them. Sometimes it's sensitive. Sometimes it's a little insensitive, but it's there.

Glenn: Thanks, man. We'll talk about. Dr. Keith Ablow.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.

Glenn Beck: This is the ONLY endgame that makes sense for the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home

If you're celebrating this FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, you have no idea how much this changes things. We don't do this in America. At least, we didn't. But the left cannot have Donald Trump be president again. His "America First" platform goes against everything they've been working for. So, what's their endgame here? On the radio program, Glenn Beck said there's really only one endgame that makes sense — and it should scare us all.

"If you are not for the destruction of America, you better pay attention quickly. This is a massive move," Glenn said of the Mar-a-Lago raid.

"And who has credibility on this? ... The right will believe Donald Trump, but nobody on the left, so you're not going to change any minds there. Do you think the right will believe the New York Times? MSNBC? NBC? CBS? Do you think we're going to believe the New York Times — the people who have been carrying water for the Biden crimes? The Clinton crimes? And ... I'm talking about her server and having her own State Department people go into a skiff, which is the top secret room, completely sealed off, going in and getting documents, cutting off 'top secret,' and then emailing them to her on her private server. And nothing? And now you're going to try to convince me [that] this has nothing to do with January 6?" he added.

"Remember the [allegations about] bank servers, [Trump] was pinging a bank? Untrue. Carter Page is a Russian spy? Untrue. Donald Trump is a Russian spy? ... Untrue. Collusion with Russia? Untrue. Ukraine, the perfect phone call? Not true. Not true. Wasn't a perfect phone call. Was not impeachable. The pee tape dossier? None of that was true. Here's why they can't have [Trump] as president of the United States. They can't have him as president of the United States because we are headed towards a completely new, all redesigned, non-capitalist, nonconstitutional Great Reset," Glenn argued. "They cannot have him be president because he is America first."

Glenn warned Americans that our federal government is accumulating massive power, case in point the 87,000 new IRS agents. "Coupled with the [IRS agents] they already have ... that's almost the size of our National Guard. Do you feel comfortable with that? Democrats? You don't think there's a possibility ... that someone ... might come in at some point and weaponize the IRS?"

He also warned that the FBI's raid on Donald Trump’s home has implications that stretch far beyond simple dislike for the former president. So what are they hoping to accomplish?

"What is the endgame? You make him into a martyr by throwing him into jail or killing him ... so you make him stronger? That doesn't make sense. Why would they want that?" Glenn asked. "So, what is their endgame? The only one that makes sense to me, is to stop him at any cost, then lunatics will take to the streets, and then [they] will have [their] evidence that the [right is] more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine. Please, pray for your country."
