Glenn Beck: Still Confused About Obama?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. ET on FOX News Channel

Here's the one thing: Some people still want to know who President Obama really is. But I think if you don't already know him through his actions, then you probably never will.

Just look at what's happened over the last couple of days.

Last week, The New York Times asked the president if he is a socialist, like those evil conservatives — like me — have been claiming. He originally said no and then rambled on about the budget and energy spending.

But apparently, the president was bothered by his original answer — or at least his staff was — so he later called the reporters back and, with his advisers and teleprompter handy, explained that he didn't think it was serious question.

This time, Obama insisted he wasn't a socialist and suggested that President Bush had started the big government trend.

I swear it's like we're in the third grade again. He started it! Really?

I've got two teenagers, a 5-year-old and a 2-year-old; I don't need another child in the White House. Everybody grow up. Continuing and expanding socialist policies doesn't make you a capitalist.

If you still don't know who our president really is, then take a look at how he treats his adversaries.

He once said Republicans can't just "listen to Rush Limbaugh" and get things done. On Monday, he suggested his administration would talk to the moderate elements of the Taliban — as in the terrorists masquerading as a government. Regardless of whether this is a good idea, we have a president who is now willing to sit down with violent extremists under the guise of "getting things done."

Huh?

The last example is Obama's decision to end a ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. But there are two big problems with this:

First, he's elevating science above morality and ethics. According to Princeton professor Robert George, a leading pro-life voice on stem cell research, the "radicalism in the area of bioethics is on the scale of Obama's attack on the free market economy."

Second, he'll act like it's a reversal of Bush policies, but it's not. It's taking the funding out of the private sector and making taxpayers pay for it.

In this economy, this is what we're spending our money on? Where are his priorities?

Who Barack Obama really is should now be pretty obvious. But maybe that's the wrong question to ask. Maybe what you should be asking is, who are you? What do you believe in? And, most importantly, what kind of America do you want to live in?

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."
