Glenn Beck: Obama wants THIS guy?

Obama's Most Perilous Legal Pick

GLENN: How about this story? Not to overwhelm anybody but again, we're at the phase now where you're not going to solve these problems overnight. These problems are going to be solved in time and only solved when you stand up. Judges should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal norms. Sharia law could apply to disputes in U.S. courts. The United States constitutes an axis of disobedience along with North Korea and Saddam Hussein. These are the views of a man who is on track to become one of the U.S. Government's top attorneys. Harold Koh is his name. He was the dean of Yale Law School. What a surprise. President Obama has nominated Koh to the State Department's legal advisor. Imagine the state department under Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have this guy as their lead attorney. He would forge wide range of international agreements on trade issues to arms control. He would also represent our country legally in places like the United Nations. He is a fan of transnational legal process, arguing that distinctions between the U.S. and international laws should vanish.

How does this work in real life? California, Proposition 8. People decided, went to the courts. Courts say fine; people say fine, we want it, we want it this way. He believes that the courts and the people have no right to say that because of international law. In Canada and the European human rights commission and the United Nations, they all say gay marriage should be legal. And because the United Nations says that, it doesn't matter what the people of California want. He even believes that judges should use this logic to strike down the death penalty.

The primacy of international legal norms apply to treaties that we reject. So in other words, the Kyoto protocol, we would if this guy gets his way, we have to honor it anyway because international law is above ours.

By the way, Stu, are the flowers blooming in your flower bed yet?

STU: They're beautiful.

GLENN: They're beautiful. The grass is starting to come up. It's just so fantastic. Spring is almost here. The British are coming!

He also claimed in 2007 in an appropriate case, he didn't see any reason why Sharia law would not be applied to govern a case in the United States. Sharia law over our Constitution. He has said that the war on terror is obsessive. We are obsessing over the war on terror. He says that we are an axis of disobedience. He says that George Bush has an advocacy of unfettered presidential power that is compared only to President Richard Nixon's. By the way, that was the first George Bush, not the last Bush. He also praised the Nicaraguan Sandinistas to use in 1980 the use of the International Court of Justice to get congress to stop funding the contras. He is a self described activist. Self described. He said, I would rather have former Supreme Court justice Harry Blackmun who used the wrong reasoning in Roe versus Wade to get the right results and then let other people figure out why it's right.

The state job also is a launching pad. If he gets the Department of State job, it is believed that he is going to be the nominee for the Supreme Court. This man along with I mean, look at what Obama look who Obama has placed. When it comes to any kind of anything on the environment, anything on the economy, anything with State Department and international law, they are all socialist, Marxist internationalists or a combination of all of them. This is a radical agenda. This is the, "Look at this hand, look at this hand, look at this hand" while the other hand is putting these people in. All you have to do is sign a few treaties. You cannot get out of those treaties. Once we sign our rights over to international law, the Constitution is officially dead. When you say things like, "We are not going to put the Constitution behind international law," you say that in the international court, if you say that on the floor of the United Nations, you are a freak show.

Let me tell you something. When you can't win with the people, you bump it up to the courts. When you can't win with the courts, you bump it up to the international level. Everything that is happening is happening at the international level. The things that really truly matter happen on the international level. We've got to make sure we're paying attention to the right game here. And again there's so much going on that it's hard to pay attention, but we've got to do it instead of focusing sometimes in the heat of a battle on the crocuses that have come up. They are gorgeous.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
