Glenn Beck: Olbermann advising Obama?

GLENN: Could we please play the audio from Keith Olbermann from earlier this week from his interview with Barack Obama. I want you to listen to this carefully. I played this yesterday right after Barack Obama spoke at that school about the lipstick on the pig. I want you to listen to what Keith Olbermann said on Monday to Barack Obama. Here it is.

OLBERMANN: At your convention, maybe the most compelling speech in Denver was that one strongly voiced word, "Enough." A lot of people who have felt angry about what's been done to this country in the last seven or eight years have that same sense of urgency and simplicity to it. Have you thought of using on the campaign trail and in your speaking engagements more exclamation points? Have you thought of getting angrier?

GLENN: Okay. Have you thought about getting angrier and saying things like "Enough!" Have you done that, have you thought about that. Well, I don't know if he had before but he certainly has after the Keith Olbermann interview because here's Barack Obama yesterday on the lipstick of the pig thing.

OBAMA: Because then we go another year or another four years or another eight years without addressing the issues that matter to you. Enough!

GLENN: Okay, he's angry. Enough! We go another four or eight years without addressing the issues that matter to you. Enough! He's taking advice now from Keith Olbermann. Barack Obama, may I give you a piece of advice. Do not become angry. Do not start screaming "Enough." Do not follow Keith Olbermann. Keith Olbermann, Keith Olbermann is a ticking time bomb. Keith Olbermann I believe is a very unstable individual and a ticking time bomb. You want to lose the election? Become angry. This guy is doing everything that I cannot believe that he's actually doing. He's taking from my playbook exactly what he would have to do to lose this election. He's doing it all.

I said right? ?you know what, I think it was after Iowa that I said, you're looking at the next President of the United States... unless, unless he starts exposing himself as someone? ?he's got a very high bar that he's got to hurdle every single time. He cannot be perceived as the average politician. He cannot start flip flopping on the issues. He's vague enough to where he doesn't have to flip flop on the issues. He's flip flopped on almost every issue now. The flip flop list? ?we'll give it to you tomorrow or Monday? ?is enormous. He's flip flopped on almost everything. If the media were looking for it or pointing it out, it would kill him. Just that would be enough. He's flip flopped on almost everything.

Then he said, "I'm tired of the politics of division. Enough! He said, we're a new kind of campaign. We're different.

Well, he's proving that he's not. He's doing the same kinds of things. He's playing these same kinds of commercials. He said that he wasn't going to involve himself in the 527s. He's now going after the 527s. Go ahead, put your money into John McCain because he's losing. He's violating every principle that he stood for. He stood for hope and change, and his people? ?because the media never did it. And Hillary Clinton never did it. Nobody ever defined him as somebody who's not an agent of change. He's never changed anything. In the Illinois Senate, in the United States Senate. You cannot. You cannot effect change and have any enemies. He has not changed? ?it goes to this. Just let me use religious terms because I know that Barack Obama speaks in religious terms and I know Steve Cohen who? ?do you have the audio of Steve Cohen? I don't want to just higgledy piggledy say that Democrats used religious teams but play Steve Cohen.

COHEN: But if you want change, you want the Democratic party, Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor.

GLENN: Okay, that's congressman Steve Cohen yesterday in the well of the House of Representatives. So you know you can understand it really disturbs him. When you take the moat out of your own eye, then you can, you know, worry about everything else. Barack Obama wants to take the sliver out of somebody else's eye and I'm talking politically speaking on the parties. Take the moat, that's what? ?that's the change America wants. America doesn't want the two parties blaming each other. We think they're both corrupt. That's why Sarah Palin is doing so well, because she took the moat out of her own party's eye before she turned the cannons on the other party. Turn the cannons on yourself and you'll have credibility. But now the message of hope and change, a positive message. If he starts saying "Enough," if he gets angry, he will lose the election. And there are going to be? ?because, look, the reason why he's gone this far, he would never have gone this far, being as liberal as he is, if he didn't somehow or another embody this hope thing, you know, to embody this feeling of, "Yeah, we can be better." That's all he's got going for him. If he loses that, he's done. And it's amazing that he has made it this far because of his policies. Usually people who have his policies are angry, frustrated socialists. They are people like Michael Moore who nobody wants to have Michael Moore in the office. There are people like Keith Olbermann. Keith Olbermann is a bitter, angry man, who's a ticking time bomb. Barack Obama, do not listen to the ticking time bombs. Do not listen to that. You want to win? You've got to stay positive. You've got to be the man of hope and change. I can't believe I'm giving you this advice. The good news is you think I'm a hate monger racist. So why would you ever listen to me.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck blasted the Democrats — and anyone else on the left — who have been so eager to open our southern U.S. border for the past several months, but also willing to turn a blind eye to the Cuban people in need of help today.

"While we are welcoming people from any country, all over the world, without any kind of information, and setting them into our country, putting them on American planes paid for by American taxpayers," Glenn began. "And our Coast Guard Cutters are turning these [Cuban] people away. Shame on you! Shame on you!"

Glenn said that he's "sick and tired" of hearing about "brave" leftist activists like Colin Kaepernick, who protest the America flag while wearing Che Guevara and Fidel Castro t-shirts. Meanwhile, the Cuban people are risking their lives by taking to the sea to escape their oppressive regime and come to America.

"Anybody who glorifies Che doesn't know their ass from their elbow. You can't call them a human rights activist. You're protesting the American flag, because you so deeply believe in the right to be free? And yet, you wear a Che T-shirt?" Glenn said.

Glenn went on to argue that, even though the left has "bastardized" the meaning of our country, he still believes America is the best nation on Earth. In fact, he'd give up his citizenship "in a heartbeat" if another country could prove to be better, more noble, and more free. But no other nation exists like ours, he said, which is why it's so imperative we fight for freedom here, in Cuba, and around the world.

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."
