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:

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?

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
