Glenn Beck - Obama to Reid: 'I have a gift, Harry'




Obama National Anthem

GLENN: And here comes the arrogance. Have you ever heard anyone say anything like this? This is Harry Reid. Harry Reid writes Stu, this speech was the GOP speech, right? Or not the GOP but the Democratic speech, the original, the Harry Reid thing.

STU: I think it's from his book, I believe, his forthcoming book. Dan, you might know the history better than me.

DAN: No, no, it's I don't know if it's that exact speech, Glenn, but it's right about that time and then Harry Reid wrote about it in his book.

GLENN: I'm pretty sure it's about the DNC speech that Barack Obama gave and everybody had a chill running down their leg and everything else. Remember this is, what, 2004? So Harry Reid says, he writes in his book, "That speech was phenomenal, Barack, I told him, and I will never forget his response. Without the barest hint of braggadocio or conceit and what I would describe as deep humility, he said quietly, I have a gift, Harry." Excuse me? I have a gift, Harry? Without a hint of conceit? With deep humility? I'm going to try to say this. Stu, just tell me, "Glenn, that was a fantastic show you did." Pretend, pretend.

STU: Glenn, wow, what a fantastic show you did today.

GLENN: I well, I have a gift, Stu. It doesn't work.

STU: A hint there.

GLENN: Yeah, doesn't work.

STU: Big, deep humility.

GLENN: Deep humility. Go ahead.

STU: Hey, Glenn, what a great show you had today.

GLENN: I have a gift. I don't know how to say it! Okay, try this one. Go ahead. Do it again.

STU: Hey, Glenn, what a great show you had today.

GLENN: I got a gift, you know no, I'm kidding, I'm kidding, I don't have a whew. Really? You thought that was a good show?

STU: Well, yes, there you go.

GLENN: That one would have worked.

STU: There's one.

GLENN: I can't make you try it. You try it with deep humility. Dan, get ready. You try it. Deep humility. Hey, Stu, that was some of the best producing I've ever seen.

STU: You know, Glenn, I have a gift.

GLENN: See, you can't say those words with deep humility.

DAN: I can do it.

GLENN: This is some of the best this is one of the best technically produced shows I've ever heard.

DAN: Thank you, Glenn. It is a gift.

GLENN: No, no. No, no, you can't no, it is a gift, no, that doesn't work. It's got to be I have a gift.

STU: Still didn't work, but go ahead.

GLENN: My gosh

STU: I have a gift, Dan.

GLENN: The tones that are sent for this show are just amazing.

DAN: I have a gift. I do, for

GLENN: You can't say that!

DAN: I have a gift. No, I'm only kidding. I'm terrible.

STU: That's the only way you can do it.

GLENN: You can't say I have a gift, and without a hint of conceit? Can you imagine if anyone else on the planet would say that? Do you know what they are putting up in Union Square today for his 100 day anniversary?

STU: No.

GLENN: A giant poster of him with a crown the laurel around his head. Caesar! Caesar.

STU: It's not in a

GLENN: It's not a joke, no.

STU: Not in a commentary sort of way?

GLENN: Not a joke.

STU: This guy's acting like

GLENN: It's Union Square.

STU: I've been to Union Square.

GLENN: Yeah. Hello.

STU: It would be a joke if they'd understand, that's for sure. But I was wondering if maybe the artist

GLENN: No, uh uh.

STU: Okay, a stupid one.

GLENN: No. This is NYU.

STU: You know, normally I wouldn't guess at things like that, but I have a gift.

GLENN: That was a little closer, you know. That was pretty good. I've got to get you hang on. Where's the laurel for Stu I can put on his head? You know what? I'd like to see if anybody can try to say I have a you can call up and say whatever you want today but you have to first start when I say, hi, you're on the Glenn Beck program and you say, "Glenn, I have to tell you, I'm so glad I could call, but it's I have a gift." And see if anybody can do it without conceit. I don't think you can.

STU: Oh, I have one, I think I have it.

GLENN: Okay. Stu, you know what, let me tell you something. You are amazing. That was an amazing job you did.

STU: Right. Oh, hey, Harry, I have a gift for your wife.

GLENN: No, no, it's no, there's no no, there's no ellipse, there's no dot dot dot. I have a gift, Harry, dot dot dot for you and your wife. It doesn't uh uh.

STU: Thought I had something there, but no.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
