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."

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
