Glenn Beck: President Obama Is Still a Community Organizer

Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5pm & 2am ET on FOX News Channel

Where's the media on President Obama's firing of AmeriCorps Inspector General, Gerald Walpin?

It has not been once mentioned on the evening news programs, in The New York Times, in The Washington Post (though its Federal Eye blog did cover the story.)

It got two short mentions in The L.A. Times and Boston Globe. And one small mention in each of the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Chicago Tribune, Orlando Sentinel, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Grand Rapid Press.

That's it.

Here's the one thing no one seems to understand: President Obama is still a community organizer, it's just on a much bigger scale with much higher stakes.

While the media have looked to compare him to presidents like FDR and Lincoln, the best comparison might be to left-wing community activist Saul Alinsky, often called the "Father of Community Organizers." If you know what Saul Alinsky was about, everything that Obama does will make more sense.

Alinsky started in Chicago stockyards in the 1930s and his "Rules for Radicals" became the handbook for community organizing — arguing in it that a socialist revolution didn't come through violence, but by slowly eroding principles of the republic at the polls.

Although Obama was just 11 years old when Alinsky died in 1972, he was inspired by Alinsky's disciples who taught him community organizing at age 23, right after he graduated from Columbia University.

During his time in Chicago, Obama built up and guided a small network of grassroots groups that "agitated" for things like better playgrounds and safer communities and Obama said in those neighborhoods that he "received the best education I ever had."

Young Obama passed on that education, training community organizers on Alinsky's "power tactics," which he seems to still operate under today.

For example, Alinsky's power tactic step 11: "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it."

Doesn't that sound an awful lot like the way Obama handled the AIG executive bonuses? The banking executives? Rush Limbaugh? And the list goes on and on.

Obama perfected the tactics that so-called community organizers like ACORN use every day. It's the tactic of misdirection.

The community organizer mentality — the ACORN mentality — is to distract you from their main goal, so even though some people are looking at their voter registration fraud, we should follow the money, too.

While politicians talk about 46 million people without health care, what's their real agenda? And what's the effect on the 255 million with health care?

As we showed you Monday, the left knows the public insurance option will put employer-based, private insurance out of business and the government can bide its time, taking losses, until that finally happens.

So, while these community organizers appear to be agitating for one seemingly noble goal or another, their underlying mission is, as Alinsky said, "how the have-nots can take power from the haves."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."
