Glenn Beck: Olbermann gushes over Michelle




MSNBC "Anchor" Keith Olbermann gushes over Michelle Obama's speech...

GLENN: Here's the number, 888 727 BECK. Let's Christina, why don't you screen the phone calls. Let's get a bunch of people up and see what people said about Michelle Obama and then I'm going to play some clips for you. I'm going to tell you exactly how I feel about it. We've got some more on this insanity that is the green, the greenest convention ever. Really? The most sustainable convention ever. Why would I want to sustain this convention? Just keep it going? I don't think so. Have you noticed that they are not really talking about that? They made this big deal out of it? I wonder why. Do you think maybe it's because, oh, crap, this will remind people that we're really not for lower gas prices. Do you think they went through all of this and now they just have to do it? Have you noticed that they are not really talking about it? They are just kind of keeping it, "Shhh, that's between us."

STU: Well, I mean, they're going the funny thing about this is it's just a commercial. You know like when cable news, we do this sometimes, we'll be talking about a commercial and we'll play the commercial in its entirety and essentially it amounts to free advertising. They want these commercials to be played and we're playing them to pick them apart. But that's all this is. This is a four day prime time commercial that they just throw out there and everybody picks it up and just airs it and sometimes without questioning and sometimes by blatantly praising what's happening.

GLENN: Did you watch MSNBC last night?

STU: Hold on. I need to get into your head here. Why would you bring up, right when I say blatantly praising, you brought up MSNBC. That was weird.

GLENN: I have no idea. Play Cut 6 for me, will you? This is Michelle Obama from last night. Here's Cut 6. It's the close.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack Obama, President of the United States of America. Thank you. God bless you and God bless America.

GLENN: She's fantastic. She's got a I can't imagine what the reporters might say after something like that. I just can't imagine what they you know what, you say a speech, you know, God bless America and then, you know, what does a reporter do. Couldn't say anything ridiculous. Imagine, this is "Case closed." Stop for a second. Can you imagine, Michelle Obama pitched perfect. Can you imagine somebody going off and just spiraling into, just sickophantic, just nonsense, wonderful, terrific, you know, and just gush about it. I mean, you actually start feeling bad for somebody if they were doing that, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you just feel bad? You'd be like, that guy's not even a journalist.

VOICE: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Ooh, whoops.

VOICE: If that speech was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. Supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect.

GLENN: Pitch perfect!

VOICE: If that was supposed to be about friendliness and accessibility, couldn't have done it better.

GLENN: Couldn't have done it better.

VOICE: Look at these kids. I think that's part of the story. They have not exploited those kids at all but it's nice to see them all together once

GLENN: Stop, stop! You know, they haven't exploited these kids at all. They really, they really get a tight shot on them, will you here? Remember when they were on Access Hollywood and they were doing this thing at Access Hollywood. They were exploited on Access Hollywood and what happens? "We are not going to exploit our kids." Boy, did we learn our lesson. So the last thing we're going to do is go on Access Hollywood because there's like 500,000 viewers a night on Access Hollywood. Let's put them on okay, all right, we'll put them on national television, you know, but just on a night when every single network is covering it. And then I'll give the microphone to the cute little one. That's what I but not exploit. Do not exploit the children. Come on, Chris Matthews. You know, they really haven't exploited these children except for the time they admitted they exploited the children and then, of course, tone.

VOICE: A daughter, 10 and 7 years old. That was the oldest that she described, her husband driving her home from the hospital

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. And the story she told about driving the little one there, that's the story she told about, but they are not exploiting the children at all.

VOICE: The terms of this speech.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: To try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish. What's also been

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Stop. "The purpose of this speech were to erase doubts, you know, these doubts that are just so ridiculous, they're just so I mean, they're so infantile if you have any doubts." It was one speech. How could you possibly have any doubts? Seem like a fool. Who could possibly express any doubts? I could! In fact, I love working next to Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rock. I love it. I'm right across the street from NBC. Hey, Keith Olbermann (yelling)! Jeez. Who could possibly I mean, it just seems ridiculous. This is foolish.

VOICE: Subtly.

GLENN: Subtly.

VOICE: There was a reference to they love this country, meaning the troops. There was another one

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Subtly. Subtly she said, "I love this country." What does that mean? Subtly she said, "I don't want people to think I really do. I just want to be subtle. I just want to work that in." Subtly she said I love this country? Did you hear what she said about the troops? She talked about Dan, you've got to find the clip on the troops. She nope, nope, nope, I'm starting to give myself away. I'm sorry.

STU: Be a journalist, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Lady, just go ahead and finish. Just finish the Keith Olbermann.

VOICE: References to country, but he went back and listened to that speech again and waited for the moment in which she supposedly selling herself and redeeming herself, you wouldn't have noticed it. It was just a speech by there's the video.

GLENN: Just stop, stop. It was just, it was just a speech by a goddess hang on, hang on, here's some

VOICE: And that was and it was not a modeling speech.

GLENN: It wasn't a modeling speech.

VOICE: It was not a salesmanship speech.

GLENN: Not a salesmanship.

VOICE: I know I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic of this. So I'll stop, you start.

GLENN: What? Borderline sickophantic? Your whole career is built on that, Keith Olbermann. Oh! I can't take it. I swear to you.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
