Glenn Beck: No One Took Obama at His Word




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

At the end of the sixth month, President Obama looked over all he had created and said that it was very good. So he declared the seventh month a month of rest.

"The messiah" is going on vacation.

Here's The One Thing: Obama must be tired — he's spent the last six months transforming our country; just like he told us he would do. No one paid attention to him.

If you give me the next few minutes and look with a new perspective, you'll see how he revealed the game plan to transform America and marketed it as "change." Boy, was America eager for change:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he's going to help me.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

How is that woman feeling now? As she continues to write her own checks for her own mortgage and fill up her own gas tank, I wonder if she's disappointed in Barack Obama?

More people are becoming disappointed; his latest poll shows the number of Americans who "strongly disapprove" of his performance is eight points higher than those who "strongly approve." Too many Americans believed he was a moderate during the campaign and now, all of a sudden, he's governing from the left.

Hello? Barack Obama couldn't have been any clearer about who he was and what he planned to do. He even told us that "community organizations" would help shape his agenda:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Before I even get inaugurated, during the transition we're going to be calling all of you in to help us shape the agenda. We're going to be having meetings all across the country with community organizations, so that you have input into the agenda for the next presidency of the United States of America.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He mentioned that he wanted to build an AmeriCorps-type volunteer organization that would be just as strong and well-funded as the U.S. military:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Being a community organizer is the new "it" gig: Work for the government for 10 years and your loan will be paid, but only if the loan is federalized. If that sounds a little imperial to you, don't worry, at least your kids will still have a choice… or will they?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. RAHM EMANUEL, D-ILL.: Citizenship is not an entitlement program. It comes with responsibilities.... Everybody -- somewhere between the ages 18 and 25 -- will serve three months of basic training and understanding in a kind of civil defense. That universal sense of service -- somewhere between the ages of 18 and 25 -- will give Americans, once again, a sense of what they are to be American and their contribution to a country and a common experience.

And you look at World War II -- that was a draft, this is not a draft, this is universal service. It was not an accident that we started our big march towards civil rights and expanding post-World War II, because the country came through an experience together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

It's not a draft, it's universal service. It's not compulsory, it's required. It's not socialism, it's social justice.

Does the book "1984" come to mind?

Obama's taxation policies haven't exactly been timid either, but at least he warned us:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance at success, too.... I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Obama, a Marxist? No. No, that was just a good rule of thumb — sort of a "social justice" safety tip. It's not like he learned that ideology very early on from his mentor — Frank Marshall Davis, an avowed communist — and from his favorite professors in college — of whom he spoke in his book, "Dreams of My Father":

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students, the foreign students, the Chicanos, the Marxist professors and structural feminists and punk rock performance poets.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

"Oh please, Glenn. You can't hold him to that. He was in his early 20s at the time."

OK, can we hold him to something he said on an Illinois public radio station in 2001 when he was an Illinois state legislator?

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers and the Constitution, at least as it's been interpreted. And the Warren court interpreted it in the same way that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties, says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you. But it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf. And that hasn't shifted, and one of the, I think the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change, and in some ways we still suffer from that."

(END AUDIO CLIP)

A document of mostly "negative liberties"? Wow, what a powerful endorsement of the most perfect political document in the history of the world. Thank you, Barack! Unfortunately, it also didn't bring about that "redistributive change" that we — and when I say "we," I mean Karl Marx, wanted so badly.

And we'll need to do lots of redistributing to the poor if Obama gets his way on energy policy:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket, even, you know, regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I'm capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money; they will pass that money on to consumers.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

But thankfully those high prices will help break of us of our evil capitalist habits:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees at all times whether we're living in a desert or we're living in the tundra and then just expect that every other country's going to say, 'OK.'

(END VIDEO CLIP)

My studio is set to 65 degrees right now. And guess what? I don't care if it hurts the feelings of some Frenchy Frenchman.

Boo-hoo! Cry me a river.

I'll go on living my life how I want to live it. If that includes 18 hours of TV and Doritos, that's my choice. Or, is it?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack Obama will require you to work... Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We were promised that over and over again. We were promised a "fundamental transformation of America":

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He said it as plain as it can possibly be said and almost no one took him at his word. The question is, do you now?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
