Newsweek: Obama = God

GLENN: I was in my office this morning and I was talking to the TV people about, I want to start looking at all of these czars. Who are these people? And somebody said in the meeting, Glenn, weren't you boring us to death with Philip Dru: Administrator? I said, yeah, you mean that novel that Woodrow Wilson and he said, yeah. I mean, I just remember sitting in meetings and you going on and on and on about that book and dying, clawing each other's eyes out just to get out of the room with you. Isn't this exactly what was in it? And it dawned on me, yes! I have to go back and look it up but there was this one chapter in it where this is Woodrow Wilson, the progressive movement. The idea is that the president is really just an administrator and he appoints other administrators. He appoints somebody to oversee all of the court system. He invoices somebody to oversee the car industry. He appoints somebody over food. He appoints somebody over, you know, hat making, everything. Well, that's what Barack Obama is doing. And they can rewrite the laws. In the book, in the novel they can rewrite the laws because they know better and they're not involved. They can just see what's fair and what's right for the entire country. Do we happen to have Dan, do we have the audio for the editor of Newsweek talking about Barack Obama? Do we have that audio? Could we play that, please? This is from, I don't know, Let's Play Hardball with Chris Matthews, and this is the editor of Newsweek. Listen to this.

VOICE: Well, we were the good guys in 1984. Hasn't felt that way in recent years. We're seen too often as a bad guys. And he is a very different job from Reagan was all about America, and he talked about it. Obama is, we are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something. I mean, in a way Obama's standing above the country, above the world. He's sort of God.

MATTHEWS: Yeah.

VOICE: He's going to bring all different sides together.

GLENN: Did you hear that? And Chris Matthews, "Yeah, yeah." He's above the world. He's above America. He's above the world. Obama is almost God. Could you play that again? That is the editor of Newsweek magazine. Tell me that we're not headed towards a fascist state. As Newt Gingrich said last night at this Republican fundraiser: I am not a citizen of the world! Now, you can get all flowery if you want, but I'm not a citizen of the world. I'm a citizen of the United States of America, and I'm proud of that. That doesn't mean that I denigrate other countries. That doesn't mean I hate other countries or anything else. I'm proud of what we have here. There is a difference in America! America has made a difference! Our system has made a difference. I'm not a citizen of the world. Obama is above America? Excuse me? Should we all bow down and genuflect? Should we all start praying to him? Above America? Well, I think somebody has forgotten who's the master and who the servant is. This editor of Newsweek, what's his name? Do we know?

DAN: Looks like Evan Thomas.

GLENN: This guy, I mean, this is a progressive dream. This is the way you want to know why we don't care about the Constitution anymore? Because they're above it! That's old news. You want to know why they want empathy? Because empathy can go above the law. It is 180 degrees in the other direction from our founding. We are a respecter of laws, not of men.

You know the latest poll number's coming out of Iran. The latest poll numbers in Iran, we were at I think 34% popularity but since Obama has come in the last few months, we're now at 29% popularity. Now, that could be for a myriad of factors. I don't know. But just the surface look at that, my gut tells me we have been more popular in Iran than any other place in the Middle East. Ask yourself this question why. I contend it's because we're not popular in Egypt because the government of Egypt pulls people off the street and tortures them, kills them. They just disappear. There's no rule of law there. That's a rule of men. Same with Saudi Arabia. And what do we do? We go in and we kiss their feet. I'm sorry. We bow to them. I don't know if we've actually ever kissed their feet. We hold their hands in the rose garden and this president bows to them. Well, I would hate us, too. What do you stand for, America? You are in with them? We've never been in bed with Iran. I contend that our poll numbers are going down in Iran because, again, we're just doing what's convenient for us. We don't stand for anything. So the people who have been taking it on the chin for us, the people who have been saying, "Yeah, no America, thank God there's America." Now they are saying, hey, you know what, maybe we can sit down. They stoned people to death for being gay. We sit down at the table with them? Do we stand for anything? Do we stand for anything? Do we stand for laws? We haven't for a long time. My problem with George W. Bush, the reason why I said you can impeach George Bush, if you would look into the border, but nobody wants to do that because both sides are in bed with big business. We don't follow the rule of the law on our own border. We don't follow rule of law with the IRS. Yet you are. You have to. You have to. If you are a big enough business, you don't have to. If you are too important to, you know, you can figure out this whole financial matter. Well, you don't have to. Don't worry about it. If you are well connected, "Well, that's not us. It never has been us." And yet that's what we're turning into. This case in front of the Supreme Court is critically important because it is pushback on there is a rule of law in this country, and one of the things you need to watch is if there isn't a rule of law. Watch the money rush away from America. It's the one thing we've always had going for us.

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
