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.


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 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.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
