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?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
