Glenn Beck: Obama embarrassed by Americans



CALLER: Hey, I need your help with something. I'm kind of confused. Isn't Obama the guy who said not too long ago that America went to Europe and they didn't speak the language over there, maybe they could say merci beaucoup but that was it and then when they come over here, they speak English perfectly?

GLENN: Hold on a second. Did he actually say that?

CALLER: Yeah, pretty sure he said that.

GLENN: Did he say that? I've got to have that. When did he say that?

CALLER: I don't know exactly but I know he said it.

GLENN: Better than that, we've got to look that up. Because this guy is the biggest elitist ever. He really hates the Americans that go over and maybe they could say merci beaucoup. I don't even know what that means. Thanks for the flowers.

CALLER: Yeah, I missed, I missed when he was speaking German in Germany. I missed when he was speaking French in France, but I did hear him say in English that the Americans loved French people. I don't --

GLENN: That's fantastic. He did -- I will tell you this. When he did go over to England, he did speak the native tongue, though. So --

CALLER: Well, you know, I'm not really sure about when he went to, oh, the Muslim countries. But I have a feeling he speaks their language, though.

GLENN: See, now wait a minute. I don't even know what that means. Why would you even go there?

CALLER: Well, because I'm just the evil conservative.

GLENN: Well, you know what? You know what? You give conservatives a bad name when you -- no, listen to me, Cliff.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: When you insinuate that Obama is a Muslim and he's not a Muslim, you give conservatives a bad name. You give people a bad name because that is the kind of argument where you lose immediately. You say something like that and nobody worth their salt listens to you anymore about what you have to say about Barack Obama. Don't say those things. There's no reason to say those things. You know what? You say something like that and then I stop looking to see if Obama ever, the elitist, ever did say, "You know what, you go over to other countries, I'm sick of these Americans" because I no longer believe you. I don't think you have any credibility at all.

I mean, Stu, have you ever seen a -- Dan has. Okay, got to give the audio -- got to give the credibility back to our last caller because here's the audio of Barack Obama?

DAN: I just listened to the beginning and it sounds like it. So let's listen.

OBAMA: It's embarrassing -- it's embarrassing when Europeans come over here, they all speak English. They speak French, they speak German. And then we go over to Europe and all we can say is merci beaucoup.

GLENN: Why is that embarrassing? Why is that embarrassing? Could you imagine if New York spoke one language, New Jersey spoke another language, Delaware spoke a third language, Connecticut spoke another language and you're living -- that's what -- I mean, Europe is like New England and the eastern states. You're living on top of each other. And everybody speaks another language. Of course you speak more than one language. You have to to be able to survive. I'm sorry that they're so stupid that they continue to speak 800 different languages when they're living next door to each other. Here's an idea, we streamlined it. One. I mean, why should I feel embarrassed that I don't speak German? I'm sorry. I don't have a lot of opportunity to use German, you know, in the United States of America. Yes?

STU: When French people visit China, they don't speak Chinese. The difference between the languages is ours wins. Everyone wants to speak our language. Our language is winning. Get used to it. People speak English because English is used everywhere. People don't speak French and they don't speak German and they don't speak Chinese as often, at least in Europe.

GLENN: And now. It's picking up, but still over time people have adopted -- it's just like everyone follows -- again, who knows how long it stands, but people go to the dollar, they've gone to English. We've won. We are winning. If that thing continues, it would be nice. We would like to keep it that way. We shouldn't be disappointed in that.

GLENN: I mean, they don't even speak Latin in Latin America. What are you thinking?

STU: That's good cutting-edge commentary, Glenn.

GLENN: Thank you. I worked on that all night. I mean, what is --

STU: Well, you've got to just eliminate is idiotic comment about, when it comes to Muslim countries. It's so -- there are so many legitimate things to criticize Barack Obama on.

GLENN: Have you ever -- I was going to ask you, have you ever seen a candidate with more legitimate spooky stuff on the table than Barack Obama? Legitimately. Oh, shoot, I brought a book in with me that had quotes from William Ayers in it, and the William Ayers quotes -- we'll play this game tomorrow. You tell me, is it Reverend Jeremiah Wright or the guy from the Weather Underground? He actually calls it America KKK. William Ayers does.

STU: See, and that proves that Jeremiah Wright is a better speaker because U.S. of KKKA is much more catchy.

GLENN: Same thing. And you look at them as the same language and Barack Obama says, "I wasn't listening, I wasn't..." but all the people around him are speaking the language of Karl Marx. You want to talk about spooky stuff, talk about that. There's no reason. You want to talk about Barack Obama and Islam, ask this question. I just was talking to a Muslim guy just, I don't know, last Thursday. We were having this great conversation. He's from Egypt. And we were talking back and forth about, you know, the differences, you know, the way people in America perceive Egypt and, you know, the way America is perceived over in Egypt, et cetera, et cetera. And I said, how do you think Barack Obama will be embraced in the Muslim world? And he said, "I think they'll love him. It's great, you know, because he used to be Muslim, you know, with his family and everything else." And I said, "So you don't think that the extremists will look at that and say once he starts making moves that you know he will, you're telling me that they're not going to use that against him and say he's a bigger infidel than the regular infidels because his family left Islam?" He just stopped dead in his tracks and went, "Oh, wow, I never thought of it that way, oh, yea, that's exactly what the extremists will do. You want to talk about that connection? Talk about it in that way. That's a legitimate concern.

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
