Glenn Beck: Obama is lying to you



Glenn Beck's Common Sense

GLENN: And did anybody notice what did anybody notice Cut 5, please what Barack Obama said yesterday. This to me is the president, the president and the people on TV, I am telling you they are either stupid or they are lying to you.

Now, I've met enough people in TV to know that many of them are stupid. But many of them have closed their eyes intentionally because they don't want to think about what the ramifications are. Again I have asked every single person, everybody I know, who I respect, tell me how we stop if you give me the exit strategy. Where is the exit strategy for not printing our own money? Where is the, where is the exit strategy for these bailouts? When is enough enough? Yesterday here's Cut 5. Question asking Barack Obama about, first of all, how wrong he was on the economy.

VOICE: When you are selling the economic stimulus package, you talk, your advisors and economists talked about keeping employment below 8%. Yet last week you acknowledge that unemployment is likely to reach double digit being 10%. Do you think you need a second stimulus package?

GLENN: Can we stop here? Stop here.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: This is exactly how government and the media works: Mr. President, you've proven you didn't understand the economic situation we were in. Then once you said you did, your response didn't work. So why the delay in doubling down and trying the exact same thing again? Remember this is stimulus Part 3. Bush had it; it didn't work. Here's Obama's response on whether we need yet another stimulus package.

OBAMA: Well, not yet because that is

GLENN: Stop, stop.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN: Not yet. America, this is coming. Another stimulus. I told you this yesterday. Another stimulus is coming, and this is not going to be the kind of fancy stimulus like we had that isn't really a stimulus. I told you the last time we needed to stop this stimulus because it wasn't a stimulus package. It was a game changer. It was to empower the federal government with even more authority and power. It was a power grab. That's what it was. You've seen it in state after state. You had to take this money. That's what that was. So this is technically, this question is technically accurate. Are we going to have a second stimulus package? Because the first stimulus package was stimulus. The money went into the hands of, well, not taxpayers but people everybody claimed paid taxes. It went into their hands and they spend it. That's not what the second stimulus was. That's what this one, that's what this one coming will be, and we must reject it as well. We don't have the money. We're going to be borrowing the money and then we're going to be it's a bribe. That's what the next one is, a bribe. Because you know and I know it's not working. But they think we'll just take it. They think we'll just take the money. Reject the money. I have talked to people, enough people, enough friends, enough people who are rich and poor that all say, "I don't want the money; I want my country. I want some common sense." After two in a row, afte= r two in a row have failed to do anything but make unemployment worse, make our debt that much more unmanageable, he goes on.

OBAMA: Not yet because I think it's important to see how the economy evolves and how effective the first stimulus is. I think it's fair to say that keep in mind the stimulus package was the first thing we did, and we did it a couple of weeks after inauguration. At that point nobody understood what the depths of this recession were going to look like. If you recall, it was only significantly later that we suddenly get a report that the economy tanked and so it's not surprising then that we missed the park in terms of our estimates of where unemployment would go.

GLENN: This is so unbelievably outrageous. Stu, I want you to take the audio, please, of Barack Obama, of this quote, and I want television to edit the quotes of him making the case of the stimulus package, of the dates on it, where he said if we don't pass it, America may never survive.

STU: Yes, right. Because he himself was saying this stuff.

GLENN: America will not survive if we don't pass the stimulus package. This guy is lying again and no one is calling him on it. He lies to the camera! I mean, it's one thing, it's one thing to lie when you don't think you're going to get caught. This guy is lying to the camera, and he's so arrogant, he still doesn't think he's going to get caught.

So let's just, let's just look at this here. First of all, nobody knew the depths? Nobody knew the depths. Really? Nobody knew. Well, except for every Republican well, no, I'm sorry. There were three Republicans. Now there's only two because Arlen Specter became a Democrat. So there were three Republicans that didn't know, but every other Republican. Now, you can dismiss them because you can say that, oh, they were just playing politics. Maybe, Barack Obama, you should come on this program. Maybe you should have at least responded to our multiple requests for an interview during the campaign and after you've been elected. Maybe then I could have told you in person what this was going to do, what this economy was facing. Maybe you could have listened to credible people like Nouriel Roubini. Maybe you could listen to him, you know, the 100 most important influential people in Time magazine, that Nouriel Roubini, the one that every economist was bashing a year and a half ago saying he's insane? Have you read him lately? Secondly, disregard the fact that he himself said that if w e don't pass it, America may not survive. Disregard that. When he says we did it a couple of weeks after inauguration, when no one understood the situation, is he admitting that the stimulus was a wrong move? He's saying he did something to address a situation that cost you and me $700 billion, that didn't exist as he understood it. So now it's not working. Or is he saying he basically lucked out, he gave the patient aspirin and it just happened to cure the cancer he missed? Which is it? Is there anyone that is going to ask this question? Is there anyone that would like to stop playing politics and start listening to reason and common sense.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
