Glenn Beck: Obama, In His Own Words


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

It is our exclusive hour with the president of the United States, Barack Obama.

Obviously, it's not really exclusive — since the President sat down with ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and even David Letterman and Univision. Did I see the Cartoon Network on the list, too? No? OK.

And, it's not really even a "sit-down" either, since — yes — he sat down with all of them but not us; not FOX News.

Does the president consider FOX News some sort of enemy? I mean, when he's even offered to sit down with Iran's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Syria's Bashar Assad and Kim Jong-Il of North Korea.

It makes you wonder.

So tonight I decided to ask the president some questions and use the answers he's already provided. So here's President Barack Obama in an interview you won't see anywhere else — so, in that sense, it is exclusive. No one else is putting any of this together.

You know, I keep hearing people say that Barack Obama ran as a centrist, but is now governing far further to the left than anyone anticipated. I maintain that but it just isn't true. I contend that Barack Obama told us what he intended to do — every step of the way. Too many of us just didn't listen. We only heard what we wanted to hear.

Are you listening now? Because I'm about to give you another chance to hear him — to really hear him in his own words.

OK, let's get right to the health care debate. Much has been said about single-payer health care. The president wants it. The president doesn't want it. Which is it?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter because, frankly, we historically have had, a employer-based system in this country — with private insurers — and for us to transition to a system like that, I believe would be too disruptive.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

OK, wait a minute — because a few years ago, President Obama said this to the ACL-CIO:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I happen to be a proponent of the single payer health care plan — a single payer health care plan — universal health care — that's what I'd like to see.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That sounds pretty clear to me — I'm quoting: "I happen to be a proponent of the single-payer health care plan — a single-payer health care plan — universal health care."

It's very difficult to reconcile, if you listen. It makes it even harder when you hear what others — in and around the White House, congressmen, key advisers and special interests — have said:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

REP. BARNEY FRANK, D-MASS: I think if we get a good public option it could lead to single payer and that's the best way to reach single payer.

REP. JAN SCHAKOWSKY, D-ILL.: And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who then argued against the public health insurance option saying it wouldn't let private insurance compete, that a public option would put the private insurance out of business.

(APPLAUSE)

My single payer friends, he was right. The man was right.

JACOB HACKER, TIDES: Someone once said to me this is a Trojan horse for a single payer. And I said, well it's not Trojan horse, right? It's just right there! I'm telling you: We're going to get there — over time, slowly — but we'll move away from reliance on employment-based health care insurance as we should, but we'll do it in a way that we're not going to frighten people into thinking that they're going to lose their private insurance.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

So does he want single-payer, universal health care, or just another option for all Americans? The answer to that is obviously fuzzy at best.

By the way, there is a growing suspicion that President Obama and the congressional Democrat majority might be considering the so-called "nuclear option" to pass a health care bill. That's where the majority in the Senate cuts off any further debate or filibustering by a majority vote, rather than the 60 votes normally needed to end a filibuster.

You may remember that the Republican majority threatened something like this in 2005 when the Democrats repeatedly refused to give judicial nominees an up or down vote. The reaction from Democrats was apoplectic. They threatened to shut down all business in the Senate if the nuclear option was used. The "Gang of 14" intervened with a compromise and neither threat happened. Let's hope that the Democrats remember how outraged they were then and don't use this move against the American people, a majority of whom oppose this bill.

We've been talking on this show for a long time about the people that Barack Obama has surrounded himself with. Why? Because during the debates, when challenged by John McCain on the radical associations he had, Obama told America:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I'm interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden, or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO. Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Well, we've done that. And I, for one, don't like what I've seen. There was Van Jones, who was so radical, he was forced out. There are many others who still advise the president who shouldn't be anywhere near the president — from Carol Browner to Cass Sunstein, Mark Lloyd, John Holdren and Ezekiel Emanuel.

We have shown you their words and will continue to do that, but tonight, we're focusing on Barack Obama, himself. Why would he associate himself with any radicals, let alone all of these folks:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

MARK LLOYD, FCC DIVERSITY CHIEF: In Venezuela, with Chavez, really an incredible revolution — a Democratic revolution — to begin to put in place saying that we're going to have impact on the people of Venezuela...

SEN. SUSAN COLLINS, R-MAINE: In a 2007 speech, you said, and I quote, "We ought to ban hunting...."

CASS SUNSTEIN: The statement you quoted is a provocation, an offhand remark in a speech that was another — on another topic.

COLLINS: Help me with the issue of legal rights for animals.

SUNSTEIN: In terms of my own academic writings, the suggestion, which was meant as a suggestion for contemplation, was that under state law that prevents cruelty to animals, it might that the enforcement by criminal prosecutors could be supplemented by suits by private people protecting animals from violations of existing state law.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

And, let's not forget President Obama's ties and promises to ACORN and SEIU. For the love of Heaven, Jeff Jones of the New York Apollo Alliance — who helped write the stimulus bill — was a co-founder of the terrorist group that bombed the Pentagon?

Doesn't Obama know what these people have said and done in the past? Is it even feasible to have this number of radicals, Marxists, revolutionaries and anti-Capitalists near him? One would have to ask oneself: Is he blind to character? Is he part of the problem or in danger because no one is vetting these people? That's for the American people to decide, but they'll never be given the chance if he only grants interviews to the people that ask him insipid, shallow questions over and over.

President Obama's favorite line when deflecting criticism is, "Bush had 'czars,' why weren't you yelling then?" I was and I have the archives to prove it. But Obama has doubled — at least — the amount of "czars" Bush had and those "czars" didn't have the radical ideology many of these do.

Obama will also say that Bush started us down the path toward socialism — that Bush started the crazy spending, the bailouts. My question to President Obama would be: "I'm sorry, I thought you ran on change. Why are you continuing all of Bush's policies?

Anyone who voted for President Obama should be asking themselves: Did I misunderstand the president because I believed in change or did he misunderstand me?

We should have seen this coming from before his first day in office:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: In five days we are going to fundamentally transform America.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

One reason why you want to have an interview with the president, is you want to get a sense of the man. I don't feel America has really gotten that. People still don't really know who he is — he was JFK, then he was FDR, then he was Abraham Lincoln. While the media was so eagerly putting images of others for us to compare him to, I wondered if it was because they were uncomfortable with who he was.

His dad was a radical, his mom from Kansas. Sweet as I'm sure she was, she went to school in one of the most radical schools in America. His dad left him to go to a radical school in New York. And when he finally moved to Hawaii, he met Frank Marshall Davis — an old-line, '60s radical communist from Chicago. That was his mentor.

Did you have a favorite teacher that was a mentor? What lessons do you still carry around from them today? What part of Frank Marshall Davis does Barack Obama still carry with him? When Obama left Frank, he went to college, but it continued — listen to what he says:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, 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)

I'd like to stop talking about the past, but I keep being dragged back into it.

Obama chose his friends carefully back then, the questions that remain unanswered is, does he choose his advisers carefully?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

VAN JONES: The mainstream white polluters and the mainstream white environmentalists wound up collaborating to put all the poisons in the black community, in the Latino community, in the poor communities. The toxic dumps started moving in one direction — not in my backyard.

JONES: No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth! Give them the wealth!

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

That sounds radical — redistribution of wealth. But listen to our own president talking about the Constitution:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth.... The tragedies of the civil rights movement was — because the civil rights movement became so court focused, I think there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Don't we need to ask some questions?

You need to have some questions answered and maybe that's why the president sat down with others, because they knew they'd ask him things like this:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DAVID GREGORY, NBC NEWS: Hate to break it to you, but it doesn't look so good for your White Sox here. So I want to know who is your pick to win the World Series?

OBAMA: You know, I am — I think, mathematically, the White Sox can still get in the playoffs.

GREGORY: They can, mathematically. You’re an optimist.

OBAMA: So until they are eliminated, I will make no predictions.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Thank goodness we know that. Yet no one cares to see the prism that the president is viewing things through.

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Here's how the conversation went:

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
