Mean What You Say

I'm going to give President Obama the same advice that I gave President Bush, and if he ignores it like Bush did, he can say goodbye to those great approval ratings, too.

Here's the one thing: America needs politicians to say what they mean and mean what they say.

Take Obama's speech Tuesday night. There are at least three times when Obama said one thing, but he and his progressive friends are doing something else.

Here's what he said:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Everyone in this chamber — Democrats and Republicans — will have to sacrifice some worthy priorities for which there are no dollars. And that includes me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

OK, great. Obama says he's going to cut back and, if that's truly the case, you can count me in. But in the same speech he proposed additional spending for a cure for cancer in our lifetime, national health care reform, overhauling Social Security and a tax-free universal savings account for everyone.

I think I also heard college for everyone? And though he's vague on exactly how much he's going to put into all of these proposals, estimates run well into the trillions.

Next is the president's populist rant against to evil, greedy CEOs:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: This time, CEOs won't be able to use taxpayer money to pad their paychecks or buy fancy drapes or disappear on a private jet. Those days are over.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Really? Well, if they're over for CEOS, are they also over for politicians? Sen. Dianne Feinstein flies cross-country on her husband's private jet at $20,000 each way. Even Obama is flying way better than first class. Thanks to George Bush, he's getting a fleet of two dozen new helicopters at a total taxpayer cost of $11.2 billion.

Again, it's nothing short of hypocritical. But Obama's not done yet. Ask yourself, what's wrong with this next statement?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I'm proud that we passed a recovery plan free of earmarks.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Wait... what?

Are you using a foreign language dictionary to define the word "earmarks," because that could be the only possible way you think that statement is true.

The spending bill has $2 billion batteries, $800 million for carbon capture projects and more than $3 million for new uniforms for the Transportation Security Administration.

Obama is just playing word games; it's like Bill Clinton trying to redefine the word "is" all over again.

If it looks like an earmark and smells like an earmark, it's an earmark! It's like sex, we all know what it is.

These people are shameless. While we're making difficult choices, it's like they're at a party — they should have showed up in party hats. Speaker Pelosi just announced the yearly spending bill and there are $3.8 billion going to special projects — aka "pork," aka "earmarks," no matter what your definition of "is" is — including $200,000 for a "tattoo removal violence prevention outreach program."

Yesterday, I told you that the real shortage we have in this country isn't in dollars, it's in values and principles; like honesty and integrity before there's no more trust left in the bank. Tuesday night, I think you saw exactly what I meant by that.

In the end, anything that happens is our fault, including me. We need to learn the difference between hearing a speech and really listening.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
