Barack Obama on The Troop Surge in Iraq

GLENN: Give me the surge comments where he said, you know, look, there's other things that have gone on. You know, we have to talk about how the surge and, you know, other things besides the surge.

STU: Okay, here you go.

GLENN: Here it is.

VOICE: How do you escape the logic? You said we succeeded with the surge beyond our wildest dreams? How do you escape the logic that means John McCain was right about the surge?

OBAMA: It's interesting to me why people are so focused on what's happened the last year and a half and not on the previous five.

VOICE: Do you think you made the right decision about the surge

GLENN: Stop for a second. Stop for a second. I just want to point out everybody is focused on what's currently going on instead of the past five. What difference does the past five make? This guy you know, I hate to bring it into Christian terms again but this is where I'm headed towards the end of the hour. This guy doesn't understand that the fundamental concept of redemption. This guy doesn't understand that it doesn't matter where you have been. It matters where you are. Where are you today. Have you learned from the mistakes of the past? Have you looked and said, jeez, my judgment was off here; I can correct it. I mean, that is like saying in World War II, how many mistakes did we make in World War II? Do you know how close we came to losing World War II over and over and over again? We made colossal errors. You change your tactics to win. Again his judgment, his judgment stops, is frozen in time, unless it's politically expedient for him to change it. But then he continues to tie it back to the past. How is this important? Continue to listen.

OBAMA: Here's why. My whole premise has always been that it was a distraction for us to go into Iraq.

GLENN: Got it.

OBAMA: Once we were there, we had to make the best of a bad situation.

GLENN: Bingo.

OBAMA: And what I have said is that at the time that we made the decision to go in with the surge that it did not address the underlying problem, which is the willingness of the Iraqis to overcome their political differences and reconcile and to provide

VOICE: 15 out of 18 political benchmarks have been met.

GLENN: Stop, stop. That's important. 15 out of the 18 political benchmarks have been met. The other side of the argument was these people won't do it because they don't trust America of being tough. They've got to make look, you got somebody living down the street who's got a gun to your head, says you help them out, I will shoot you in the head because you know they're leaving. As soon as they leave, I shut you and your family. You shut your mouth. As soon as we got serious, that's when the Iraqi people had enough confidence in us that they would fight next to us. Before then, they didn't trust us, nor should they have. That's why 15 out of the 19 now have been met politically speaking. Obama just ignores it. All right. Play the rest of it.

OBAMA: To overcome their political differences and reconcile and

VOICE: 15 out of 18 political benchmarks have been met.

OBAMA: And to provide the kind of strategy that would allow us to move forward. That wasn't part of the package in the surge. So if the question is has the surge done much better than we expected in combination with these other factors in reducing malice, the answer is yes, and I've said this repeatedly.

GLENN: Okay. Here's the thing. He wants, he wants to take credit for getting out. Do you have the second clip of Barack Obama where he talks about, you know, we can get out now, why didn't we get out before? Go ahead, play this.

VOICE: Phrases we've heard from Governor Palin and others at the convention, Republican convention was that in Iraq victory is in sight. Do you believe that?

OBAMA: You know, they have yet to define "Victory." Or it's a very slippery definition. My view is, number one

GLENN: We shouldn't have been there.

OBAMA: It was a poorly conceived mission. So to talk about victory

GLENN: Stop, stop. So to talk about victory, there is no such thing as victory with him. There is no such thing. You will never be victorious in Iraq, ever. Even if we win, they stabilize, we leave, we should leave with our tail between our legs because there is no such thing as victory because it was ill conceived from the beginning. Next.

OBAMA: I think well, look. I think that we I think George Bush, with the help of John McCain and Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney made a big strategic blunder. There are enormous costs to that blunder. It's the equivalent of them driving the car off the ditch. I think it's possible for us to get the car back on the road, but

VOICE: That's not going to be better.

OBAMA: Well, that doesn't signify that we are better off than had we not gone. And so I do think that there has been enormous reductions in violence because of the extraordinary service of our troops, and there is no doubt that the improvements in terms of violence has to do with the surge and the Sunni awakening, the Shia militia standing down.

GLENN: He goes on to talk about how that these things that are happening now, the things that are happening now that we can actually get out, he suggested a long time ago. But his judgment is the judgment of a doctor that says, oh, you got cancer? You know what, get out of the hospital and just take your vitamins. And John McCain, being the other doctor, then says, okay, okay, you can take your vitamins and you'll leave the hospital, but you have to have chemotherapy first. Barack Obama is the doctor who said, "I said the whole time you should get out of the hospital and take your vitamins." Yes! But the patient is alive and able to walk out of the hospital because he had the chemotherapy first! All that Barack Obama wants to talk about is the cancer and then walking out of the hospital and having your vitamins, "This is what I said the whole time." He's completely dismissing the whole chemotherapy part. This is not a doctor whose judgment I would trust. But this is only one piece of his judgment. We'll put the whole buzz he will together here in just a second.

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...

Rolling Stone magazine on Sunday published an article that argued in no uncertain terms that the suspect who grotesquely took the lives of ten people in Buffalo, New York, last weekend was a "mainstream Republican."

Like so many in the corporate media, the article's author Talia Lavin — who in 2018 resigned from the New Yorker after falsely accusing a combat-wounded veteran and ICE agent of having a Nazi tattoo — has painted the Buffalo killer as a right-wing, white supremacist, Tucker Carlson-worshipping conservative who is "gripped by a racist delusion."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck revealed what the killer actually wrote in his alleged "manifesto," which proves he was far from a freedom-loving constitutionalist, and explained why blatantly ignoring his words will only make the problem worse.

"The corporate media has, from the very get-go, tried to associate [the killer] with the Republicans, to say that he's a conservative, to say that he got all of his training from Tucker Carlson," Glenn began. "But you know it's weird, in the 180-page document authored by the shooter, he doesn't mention Tucker Carlson — not even once. Not at all. There is one mention of Fox News, and it's an infographic showing the top Fox News host, such as Maria Bartiromo and Greg Gutfeld, as being Jewish. He also says Rupert Murdoch is a Christian Zionist who may have Jewish ancestry though it's never been publicly admitted," he continued.

"Oh, another thing. Ben Shapiro is mentioned multiple times, including as an example as the 'rat of the Jewish people.' So gosh, that doesn't sound conservative to me, doesn't sound Republican, doesn't sound like he's learned anything from anybody that is on the right. Moreover, he has described himself as an ethno-nationalist and eco-fascist national socialist. He loathes libertarianism and conservatism in particular."

Watch the video clip below to hear more of the criminal's own words, which prove he was no right-winger and certainly NOT a "mainstream Republican."
