Glenn Beck: Obama's Campaign Comedy

GLENN: This is just a theory of mine. I believe Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld. Have you seen Jerry Seinfeld together with Barack Obama? I haven't seen him. And here's my may I approach the bench, your Honor? I would like to introduce Barack Obama audio as Exhibit A. Here it is, my case, Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld and this whole campaign thing has been to launch some comedy movie or I don't know what it is, but I think he's Jerry Seinfeld. Here it is.

OBAMA: The other day I was in a town hall meeting and I laid out my plans for investing $15 billion a year, energy efficient cars and a new electricity grid and all this. Somebody said, well, what can I do? What can individuals do? So I told them something simple. I said, you know what, you can inflate your tires to the proper levels.

GLENN: No, hang on. I'm just kidding. I didn't mean that, inflate your actually I just said to him, "Hey, you got $15 billion? (Laughing)." No, no, no, no, don't worry about that because I don't need the money, no, no, I was serious about the inflating the tires thing to the proper levels.

OBAMA: And that if everybody in America inflated their tires to the proper level, we would actually probably save more oil

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Hang on. We would probably actually save more. We would probably I mean, are you beginning to hear the Seinfeld here just a little bit? We would probably actually begin to save more. Maybe it's just me.

OBAMA: And all the oil that we get from John McCain drilling right below his feet there, wherever it is that he was going to wherever he was going to drill.

GLENN: (Laughing). That's great. Wherever he's going to drill. I mean, what's the deal with John McCain? What's with all this drilling thing John McCain is talking about? I mean, does he think there's oil just beneath the surface of the Earth or something? That's crazy. Just hanging around down at the bottom of the Earth, does he think there's some sort of a substance under the ground that can be refined into fuel and power our cars and trucks? This guy's crazy. I mean, what's next? The same substance can be made into tires or plastic? I mean, where is this guy getting this stuff?

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Here it is.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it.

GLENN: Stop. You've got to play that again! This is a comedy routine.

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Yeah.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it. They're going around. They are sending, like, little tire gauges.

GLENN: I just don't get this whole game of politics. They're taking something I said and trying to make a point with it? They're taking my positions and telling people about my positions? What's up with that?

OBAMA: Making fun of this idea as if this is Barack Obama's energy plan.

GLENN: They're acting like this whole tire gauge is my energy plan. Where do these guys get this stuff? What are you drinking tonight? Do we have any Republicans here tonight? You, sir, you in the front row there, you're a little overweight. Not like me with my basketball skills and my nice tight abs. No wonder you vote for the party with the elephant on front. Am I right? Guys, back me up. No, I'm just kidding, I'm just funning you, sir. No, seriously, forget the tax cuts. We need calorie cuts for the wealthiest 1%. Isn't that right, fatty fat fatso? Guys, back me up on this.

OBAMA: Now, two points. One, they know they're lying about what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun

GLENN: Stop. They're making fun. All you need is a good laugh track behind this thing. First of all, wouldn't they either be lying or making fun, or do we just get to choose like multiple choice, we can just choose the one that works for us? Do you remember those books where you used to read and it would say, like, if you want this to happen, you know, those adventure books where you would read and you would say, hmmm, I'm going to choose this adventure and you go to Page 56? I think that's what this is. It's like choose your own adventure. They're either lying or they're making fun, and the one that's making fun is much more fun.

Now listen to what he says they're making fun of.

OBAMA: About what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun of a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4%.

GLENN: It's like these guys are being ignorant. Listen to this. I mean, every expert says it would absolutely reduce their oil consumption by 3 to 4%. By the way, don't do the math on that one because it's not even close if you actually look into it. But I figure if I say things like "Every expert" and "Absolutely" and these guys are crazy, I don't know what you're talking about, you are probably going to buy it. Speaking of buying, what's the deal on the grocery store these days? I mean, you got all these choices, paper or plastic, plastic or paper. I mean, it's crazy! What's the deal with choices? You know, it's just too much. Oh. I guess I'm not pro choice anymore (laughing). I know, I'm only joshing you, huh?

Is there any more of this thing?

OBAMA: It's like these guys take pride in being ignorant, you know?

GLENN: You know?

OBAMA: They think it's funny that they're making fun of something that's actually true.

GLENN: That's actually true.

OBAMA: They need to do their homework because this is serious business.

GLENN: Sure is.

OBAMA: Instead of running ads about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, they should go talk to some energy experts and actually make a difference.

GLENN: Can you believe these Republicans? They're running ads with Paris Hilton in them. Of course, I compared myself to Paris Hilton months before and that was okay, but hey, what's the deal with these Republicans? I mean, what's going on? Why are all these choices?

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."
