Too Fit to Be President?

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Here's the headline today: Moscow to seize grain control. On the exports of grain, Russia has planned now to form a state grain trading company to control up to half of the country's cereal exports. This is intensifying fears that Moscow wants to use food exports as a diplomatic weapon in the same way that Gazprom has manipulated the natural gas sales over in Europe. The diplomats now say this is a giant step backward into the Soviet era. What does this have to do with Barack Obama and him being the savior of the universe? This story about taking a giant step backward into the Soviet era is one page.

In The Wall Street Journal, too fit to be President. Speaking to donors in San Diego fundraiser last month, Barack Obama reassured the crowds that he wouldn't give in to Republican tactics and throw his candidacy off track: Listen, I'm skinny but I'm tough. But in a nation in which 66% of the voting age population is overweight and 32% is obese. Could senator Obama's skinniness be a liability? That is four pages long.

(Music).

GLENN: Yeah, there's nothing better, huh? The Soviet empire's rebuilding, but is Barack Obama too skinny? Is he too fit to be President? I can't take it. He's new. He just needs to put on some meat on his bones, says Diana Koenig, 42, a housewife from Corpus Christi. A Clinton supporter said, "I won't vote for any beanpole guy." The last overweight President was elected in 1908. William Howard Taft, 335 pounds. You have to go back to Abraham Lincoln to find somebody in the same kind of shape as Barack Obama. What a surprise we have to go back to Abraham Lincoln to find somebody that appears the way Barack Obama does. All the way through it talks about how his -- how he's so in shape, it might be a liability for him. Quotes his doctor as saying, "He doesn't have an ounce of excess fat on his body. He's just that great."

Then he goes on to say in the article that he loves fried chicken, he's a junk food lover, "I'll eat the wings." Yet he doesn't have any -- he doesn't have any problem keeping the weight off. So the Wall Street Journal wonders if he struggled with weight loss, wouldn't it make him seem more human? Wouldn't it make him seem more human? I don't know. The last two paragraphs of this story: Senator Obama is not without vices. According to Dr. Scheiner's medical report he has quit smoking on several occasions and is currently using Nicorette come with success, although some voters say that that even adds to Senator Obama's somewhat superhuman Persona. I mean, quote: Really, who quits smoking and doesn't gain any weight? I can't take it. I can't take it. Is he too fit to be President of the United States.

You know what? Joe, our researcher, is on vacation for a week but here's what I -- this is the number one project I'm having him work on when he comes back. Stu, what do you think of this? Try this theory out for size.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: I would like to take the Barack Obama stories about him being too fit, him being superhuman and I would like to compare them with the stories from the Soviet Union about Putin. Tune what made me think of this? Do you know what made me think of this? Yesterday on the front page of GlennBeck.com we had the superhuman Barack Obama on the beach with his shirt off. When was the last time you saw the President of the United States with his shirt off? Can you name any other President?

STU: God, no, I can't, but I do remember the Putin thing.

GLENN: Exactly right.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Putin posing with his shirt off, looking all manly, carrying guns and everything else and how the women swooned over Putin. All of that stuff is orchestrated in the former and soon-to-be again Soviet Union.

STU: Yeah, remember we even had that song in Russia that was a huge hit that was, like, praising him?

GLENN: Dan, do we have that song? Listen to this song, America. Tell me that this doesn't sound like every song, like Ludacris, made here about Barack Obama. This is about Putin.

(Music playing)

GLENN: This song is, I want to sing like Putin. She's singing....

(Music playing).

GLENN: You know, all of the men over there, they're drunk, they're slovenly, they don't know how to treat a woman. But Putin does, and I want -- here it is. I want a man like Putin. At the same time this is coming out, they've got pictures of him where he's posing with his shirt off. You tell me the difference. I want to go back and I want to compare the stories that are done on Barack Obama here with the stories that have been done on Putin over in Russia. Then I want to take those two stories and I want to compare them with the stories that were written about Mussolini because Mussolini, you've got to remember, was absolutely loved in America. I don't have to go over to Italy to find those. I can find those love letters to Mussolini here, from here in the New York Times and Time magazine. The press absolutely loved Mussolini. We are creating our own dictator. We are creating our fearless leader.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
