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

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:

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:

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?

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.
