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?

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
