Glenn Beck: Obama is lying to you

Glenn Beck's Common Sense

Now available in book stores nationwide...

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.


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.


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.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
