Glenn Beck: What's Up Obama's Sleeve?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5 p.m. and 2 a.m. ET on FOX News Channel

There's one thing that I'm feeling in my gut that I think a lot of people might be missing: Something is just not right.

Monday we told you about swine flu, which has killed more than 150 people and sickened thousands more in Mexico, the U.S., New Zealand, Spain, France and Israel. And it is scary, I get it — we do all need to prepare for a global pandemic, which experts agree is coming. And two experts on my radio program said this is the real deal.

But if that's the case, then why is the media talking about Arlen Specter?

Something's not right, and maybe it's us. This is happening at the same time as a lot of other — let's call them "odd" — things. We own half of GM, banks are effectively nationalized with stress tests and we're about to set up universal health care.

First, this is how Obama talked about swine flu:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: This is obviously a cause for concern and requires a heightened state of alert. But it's not a cause for alarm.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

This also happened:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: ... to nurture and sustain a culture of scientific innovation.

In addition to John -— sorry —- I just noticed that I jumped the gun here. Go ahead and move it up. I'd already introduced all you guys.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

To be fair, I know the president is busy and can't memorize all his speeches, but does it bother anyone else that historians say he's used the prompter way more than any other president? Does it bother anyone that he wasn't even able to start speaking until the script was in the exact right place? Sarah Palin's prompter acted up during the RNC and she gave her whole speech without it!

Then we had Monday's "secret" photo op of Air Force One flying over Manhattan, which gave lots of people flashbacks to 9/11. Obama's looking to cut spending "line by line" and yet somehow they missed the really expensive buzz past Ground Zero. We did a rough estimate, with the info $7,500 an hour each. Figure, on the low end, three hours to Andrews Air Force Base and back adds up to $247,000. Times are tough, so we used Photoshop, which cost 800 bucks plus a couple hours work out of a good artist.

And what about the 100-day lovefest between the president and the press that we're now in? The nonpartisan Center for Media and Public Affairs found that during his first 50 days in office, the nightly newscasts covered Obama more than Bush and Clinton combined. It was also much more favorable coverage — the group found that on the ABC, CBS and NBC newscasts, 58 percent of the coverage was positive, compared to 44 percent positive under Bill Clinton and 33 percent for Bush during a comparable period.

And it's not just the press that's fawning over Obama. There's this picture of the president wearing a crown of thorns in messianic imagery. The artist has now reportedly canceled his unveiling in New York City's Union Square Wednesday due to "overwhelming public outrage."

Meanwhile, a new CBS poll couldn't find a single African-American who disapproved of what Obama is doing. Not one! That's an odd result considering I had several of those non-existent people call into my radio show just this morning.

As I've told you before, I believe Barack Obama is like David Copperfield. While we're all watching the right hand — with the swine flu response, the teleprompter, and the flyover — the left hand is busy. But busy doing what?

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?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.
