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.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

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."
