Glenn Beck: No One Took Obama at His Word




Watch Glenn Beckweekdays 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?

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
