Glenn Beck: Obama's shady friends


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/m89m0pC_bpY&hl=en&fs=1 expand=1]


The commercial Obama has tried to get pulled off the air... But what exactly is the problem with it, does it tell the truth or not?

GLENN: All right. So he is going to address the world tonight as a citizen of the world, and he's not going to talk about things that he doesn't want to talk about. He's not going to talk about William Ayers. I bring William Ayers up today because there's a campaign ad running, paid for by Barack Obama.

(Zeus music playing).

GLENN: In select cities, and here is the ad that Barack Obama is run

(Zeus music playing).

GLENN: That the candidate for the Democratic party is running.

OBAMA: I'm Barack Obama and I approved this message.

VOICE: With all our problems, why is John McCain talking about the Sixties, trying to link Barack Obama to radical Bill Ayers. McCain knows Obama denounced Ayers' crimes, committed when Obama was just 8 years old. Let's talk about standing up for America today. John McCain wants to spend $10 billion a month in Iraq. Tax breaks for corporations that ship jobs overseas, selling out American workers. John McCain, just more of the same.

GLENN: I have not heard Barack Obama denounce William Ayers. Here's the I'm sorry. His crimes.

STU: That's very well worded. That was carefully crafted.

GLENN: Thank you. Here is that almost sounds like, "I don't agree with their tactics... but." Here is the ad that Barack Obama is

(Zeus music playing).

GLENN: That Zeus is trying to get pulled from the air. It is not run by John McCain. It is run by the billionaire in Texas that did the Swift Boat thing. I know Fox is not even running this ad. I'm running this ad because I think you should know what the controversy is about and then I'm going to give you a little history on William Ayers and I'll even bring it up to today because why focus on the 1960s. You're right. Here's the ad that Barack Obama does not

(Zeus music playing).

GLENN: Thank you. does not want you to hear.

VOICE: Beyond the speeches how much do you know about Barack Obama? What does he really believe? Consider this. United 93 never hit the capitol on 9/11 but the capitol was bombed 30 years before by an American terrorist group called Weather Underground, that declared war on the U.S., targeting the capitol, the Pentagon, police stations and more. One of the group's leaders, William Ayers, admits to the bombings, proudly saying later, "We didn't do enough." Some members of the group Ayers founded even went on to kill police. But Barack Obama is friends with Ayers, defending him as "Respectable and mainstream." Obama's political career was launched at Ayers' home and the two served together on a left wing board. Why would Barack Obama be friends with someone who bombed the Capitol and is proud of it? Do you know enough to elect Barack Obama? American Issues Project is responsible for the content of this ad.

GLENN: Stop. Tell me where that's inaccurate, Stu. Friends, maybe? But I'll get to that here in a second. Friends?

STU: Yeah. I mean, I don't think that they're making inaccurate statements. Obviously they're going to complain.

GLENN: They are threatening litigation, they are threatening all kinds of stuff. Go ahead.

STU: Ayers did all that stuff. He did all of it and Barack Obama was not connected by any of that stuff.

GLENN: The Obama ad is right. Those things happened when Barack Obama was 8. So he's not connected to any of the Weather Underground stuff.

STU: Right. You've got to wonder why they say he's a buddy.

GLENN: Why do you announce your campaign at this guy's house. Now, who is he? Let me give you the history of William Ayers. I gave it to you in a thumbnail. You can find it several places. The most concise comes out of 101 Professors, and this is a book about the worst professors in America, okay? William Ayers is a professor at the University of Illinois Chicago. Wait a minute. A connection to University of Illinois and Barack Obama. Isn't this where Barack Obama also has taught some classes and used Solwinski, yet another 1960s radical, another anarchist? Yes. William Ayers, he's the leader of the Weathermen. It was a group of students for a Democratic society. This is in 1969. They went underground to become America's very first terrorist cult. The Weathermen have been described by Ayers as "An American red army." Got it? American communist army. I don't believe we've had other armies in this country. American red army. In 1969 the Weather Underground issued a formal declaration of war on America. And by the way, America is spelled A M E R I KKK A. Sound familiar? Is there anybody else in Barack Obama's life? Is there anybody else in Barack Obama's life that has described U.S. of KKK A? They attempted to incite white student radicals to engage in terrorist activities that would provoke a race war in America, spelled with three Ks. White radicals would shed their white skin privilege to aid third world peoples in plundering the ill gotten wealth of the United States. Ayers summed up the ideology as, quote, and I quote William Ayers: Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents. End quote.

I don't care how long it has been since you said this. That phrase should stay with you as an albatross around your neck for the rest of your life. Now, that again was said in the 1960s. So let's continue to follow the repentant attitude of Mr. Williams Ayers who again said kill all the rich. Listen to this in the context of the message of Barack Obama. I do not believe Barack Obama wants to kill the rich. I do not believe that Barack Obama would ever say or ever want anyone to kill their parents. That is not Barack Obama. However, listen to Barack Obama's rhetoric on socialism. Listen to his rhetoric on class warfare. Listen and put this into context with what Obama says about the working man and the best way for the working men, that there has to be a fundamental change of redistribution of wealth. Some to put into Michelle Obama's words, "Some people are going to have to give up their piece of pie so others can have more." Same words, just let me rephrase. I don't agree with their tactics, but I understand their point of view. "Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and parts. Bring the revolution home. Kill your parents." The Weather Underground managed to bomb the U.S. capitol building, New York City police headquarters, the Pentagon, the National Guard offices in Washington D.C., among many other targets. In 1970, three of the members blew themselves up in a Manhattan townhouse where they were making a bomb they planned to set off at a social dance for young military recruits and their dates at Fort Dix, New Jersey. The FBI was unable to catch Ayers and his other cohorts. They were protected listen carefully. They were protected by the networks of the progressive left. They were protected by the networks of the progressive left, including their expensive lawyers, for five years, until the organizations dissolved through internal conflict.

So for five years the progressive left, with all of their money, protected them using the progressive left's attorneys until the Weather Underground finally broke apart. They surfaced again in 1980. They received no serious jail time for their crimes, being let off on a technicality that they had been improperly surveilled. So they didn't really serve any jail time for blowing up anything because the pigs were doing things they shouldn't have done.

They went back to college where their political comrades now tenured in faculty helped them embark on new careers. Ayers became a professor of early childhood education and a senior university scholar at the University of Illinois Chicago. He has never changed or modified his political views. Professor Ayers has written a series of books about parenting, including to become a teacher, city kids, city teachers. His most recent book, Fugitive Days, is a memoir of his Weathermen exploits. In chaotic text, professor Ayers recounts his life as a 1960s radical, his role as an organizer in the 1969 days of rage riots in Chicago, his tenure as a Weatherman leader, his terrorist campaign across America and in his most recent book, his hatred for America, he says, "What a country. It makes me want to puke." When interviewed shortly after surfacing from the terrorist underground in a kindergarten where he was already teaching, Ayers comment, reflecting on his fortunes, quote: Guilty as hell, free as a bird, America. What a great country. End quote.

In recounting his bombing crusade, he has said, "There's something about a good bomb. Night after night, day after day, each majestic scene I witnessed was so terrible and so unexpected that no city would ever soon stand innocently fixed in my mind. Big buildings and wide streets, cement and steel were no longer permanent. They, too, were fragile and destructible. A torch, a bomb, a strong enough wind. And they, too, would come undone or get knocked down." In unbelievable irony he was interviewed. The New York Times ran a profile of him to mark the publication of the book that I just quoted from. That article ran an September 11th, 2001. While the world was watching the World Trade Centers come down, nobody picked up the paper to read the New York Times that day because already the news was old. But this is what he was quoted as saying in the New York Times on September 11th, 2001. Quote: I don't regret setting bombs. I don't feel we did enough. End quote.

Of the day he bombed the Pentagon, Professor Ayers wrote in his memoir, quote: Everything was absolutely ideal. The sky was blue. The birds were singing and the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them, end quote. When reflecting on whether or not he would use bombs against the U.S. in future, a senior university scholar, Williams Ayers writes, quote: I can't imagine entirely dismissing the possibility.

That is William Ayers. By the way, his book, 1998, A Kind and Just Parent. He argues that we have to overcome our prejudices concerning violent juvenile offenders. In his book that came out in 2001, Zero Tolerance: Resisting the Drive for Punishment in our Schools. Professor Ayers argues against expelling children from classrooms especially if they are black or Latino. In a book that came out in 2004 in teaching towards freedom, moral commitment and ethical action in the classroom, Professor Ayers writes that an unrepented I'm sorry, the unrepentant terrorist writes an evocative lesson about education and humanity must be taught from Pablo Neruda, I don't know who he is, he is apparently a communist bureaucrat, and Malcolm X. In order to explain what students should be for and what students should be against. Malcolm X and a communist is what our children should be taught so they know what they should be for and against. That's William Ayers.

Now, you can dismiss this man and say, well, that's 1960s. No, it's not. He has never said, "I've changed my ways." He never said, "Well, I did stupid stuff while I was young." He still today will not rule out the possibility of making war on the United States and using bombs to blow up buildings. Today he won't do that. And yet Barack Obama launched his campaign at this man's house. Good God almighty in his seat in heaven, how much more evidence do you need before you question the people standing around Barack Obama.

(Zeus music playing).

GLENN: There he is in his I forgot. He was not in his judgment seat. He's getting ready to come out of the floor, you know, at Zeus' pavilion tonight. Why did Barack Obama come out and try everything he can to shut this down? Because there is no evidence that Barack Obama believes in the violence. But let me tell you something. I don't associate with this man. I don't serve on a board with this man. I don't launch anything. Because when I'm around William Ayers and I hear, "Let's have a launch party," it might be surface to air missiles. I don't know. I don't launch anything at this man's house. Whether he's a friend, I don't know. But he certainly seems to be a political ally of some sort.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!
Watch the latest video at <a href="https://www.foxnews.com">foxnews.com</a>

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.
