Obama Is Transforming Us

I've always wanted to be a Community Organizer, because I love communities and I love being organized!

Here's The One Thing: The community organizer in chief is transforming us, but why isn't anyone noticing?

I had some people at the house over the weekend. We were all looking at this online visual psychology test. (I know, weekends with me are just wicked awesome: Psychology tests and books on progressivism — want to come over?)

But I want to show you something: Look at this and tell me what's changing in this picture. It's from the University of South Dakota Department of Psychology's Web site.

This test was based on a scientific theory called "change blindness"; a theory that I think might help explain what's happening in our country right now.

In visual perception, "change blindness" is the phenomenon that occurs when a person viewing a visual scene apparently fails to detect large changes in the scene, because there are a lot of things going on.

If you got it: Great, you are a smarty-smart pants — quit showing off. For those who didn't, the answer is the massive jet engine that's flashing right before your very eyes. Only about two out of the 10 people at my house got it — once you know what it is, it's so obvious.

This is exactly what's happening in America: The system is being overwhelmed. We're rushing massive programs and policies through at an astounding rate and we're failing to see the engine coming off the plane because Obama's using something called — honest to God — "change blindness."

All the rushing of change, even though he said this in 2004:

BARACK OBAMA: When you rush these budgets that are a foot-high and nobody has any idea what's in them and nobody has read them…

RANDI RHODES, FORMER AIR AMERICA RADIO HOST: Fourteen pounds it was.

OBAMA: Yes, and it gets rushed through without any clear deliberations or debate. Then, these kinds of things happen, and I think this is in some ways what happened to the Patriot Act. I mean, you remember there was no real debate about that. It was so quick after 9/11 that it was introduced that people felt very intimidated by the administration.

But now, in 2009, it's totally cool to jam through a $787 billion stimulus bill, a massive expansion of children's health care, a cap-and-trade energy bill and, oh yeah, a complete overhaul of the entire health care industry in the first six months.

And while the president is filling up America's scene with these huge thousand-page bills, he gets cover from friends like House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers who said, with a straight face:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. JOHN CONYERS, D-MICH.: I love these members, they get up and say, "Read the bill." What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We, rightfully so, become outraged and try to (I know, this is crazy) get our elected officials to read bills before they vote on them.

But, maybe that's what they want us to focus on, because while we are complaining about that, and the millions government spends on bridges for turtles and toilet restorations, none of that is as important as the fundamental changes currently being made to how our country works.

Don't you see? This isn't about just health care; it's about who's behind it.

Look, if a doctor is selling medicine to grandma, wouldn't you like to know if that doctor is Dr. Huxtable or Dr. Kevorkian? Kind of makes a difference, doesn't it? Just ask Michael Jackson.

This isn't about a slight change of paint color; it's about an engine completely disappearing. America's engine is being completely removed right before our eyes.

America once had this crazy concept of elected officials doing things "for the people." Now it seems our elected officials are busy doing things to the people; puppets for powerful global corporations, unions like SEIU and community organizations like ACORN:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I'm not a newcomer to this, I didn't suddenly discover SEIU on the campaign trail.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Your agenda has been my agenda in the United States Senate. Before debating health care I talked to Andy Stern and SEIU members. Before immigration debates took place in Washington, I talked with Eliseio Medina and SEIU members. Before the EFCA I talked to SEIU.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

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)

All I'm asking for is that you ask officials the tough questions. Who's running the show? Is it the "all-knowing Messiah," Barack Obama? Or is it special interest groups, like the SEIU and ACORN pushing their agenda?

Warning: Once you see the picture of what they are doing — just like the jet engine — you won't believe how you missed it. You'll also have sleepless nights wondering how everyone else has "change blindness" and can't see it.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
