Glenn Beck: Obama is Overwhelming the System




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

While the media fawns at another "barrier" being broken, more important stories are being missed. And yes, the media stinks on ice, but this time it's not necessarily all their fault.

Here's the one thing: The president is pulling a page from the community organizing playbook and he's overwhelming the system.

President Obama is simultaneously dumping so many huge agenda items on the system, even if the media wanted to cover each of the big stories they wouldn't be able to devote enough time to do it. So instead, we get stuck watching yet another pathetic confirmation hearing.

Sure, Sotomayor is a big story, but the prevailing wisdom was she'd pass with little issue. So why waste time covering agonizing "speeches-poorly-disguised-as-questions" that serve only to give more TV face time for slimy politicians?

It's misdirection and it's achieved by overwhelming the system with too much for the media to handle at once.

So, while America watches Sonia Sotomayor get compliments on her Latin-ness from Democrats and predictable complaints from Republicans, we miss Obama is talking about things like:

A second stimulus package, even though he said the first stimulus is "working as intended." Geez, if 9.5 percent unemployment and a tumbling economy is "working as intended," what would happen if the stimulus didn't work? And why would we even need a second one if the first is working? I guess we'll never know.

But hey, a wise Latina is in the Supreme Court! Yay, another barrier is broken!

We'll also stay in the dark on how world powers are moving away from the dollar. Check out this picture of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev holding up what he says is a "future world currency" under the "unity in diversity" motto?

Nothing on the collapsing dollar, but I get to learn all the trials and tribulations of Sonia Sotomayor's life.

Why waste time following stories like Al Gore saying the U.S. climate bill (cap-and-trade) will help "bring about global governance"? Why mention that Obama's pick to head the environment division at the Department of Justice is from G.E.? Sure she defended G.E. in pollution lawsuits and G.E. is trying to get stimulus money for their "eco-magination" clean energy products, but there is no way that government and business are melding together.

Get off the crazy train! There's a wise Latina in the Supreme Court!

Oh, and I almost forgot, just ignore President Obama's meeting, Monday, with union leaders pushing his health care agenda and the Democrats, who just happen to be rolling out their health care reform package.

What are the odds all of this happens today? It's so weird.

There is simply not enough time in the day to fully cover everything our community organizer in chief is pushing through; even Congress doesn't have time to read the bills before them.

Obama is overwhelming the system and on top of that he's rushing things through. He gives everything some sort of emergency label:

"Act now to avoid total economic collapse!"

"Four million armpit-less kids are without health care. The time is now to change!"

It's a calculated tactic, straight out of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and it seems to be working.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
