Glenn Beck: SNL attacks...Obama?

GLENN: Let's move on with this. So here we go.

VOICE: Good luck with Rio. Now, last year I was elected with a mandate to bring this country "Change we could believe in" and as time has passed, it has become clear that this promise is troubling to some people. There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I'm turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. But that's just not the case. Because when you look at my record, it's very clear what I've done so far and that is... nothing. (Laughter). Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it. You don't believe me? You think I'm making it up? Take a look at this checklist.

Now, on my first day in office... (laughter), in my first day in office I said I've closed Guantanamo Bay. Is it closed yet? No. (Laughter). I said we'd be out of Iraq. Are we? Not the last time I checked. (Laughter). I said I'd make improvements in the war in Afghanistan. Is it better? No, I think it's actually worse. (Laughter). How about health care reform? Hell no. (Laughter). I even, I even went personally to try to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. It didn't work out. But in this case there's some good news with the bad. For every person who buys an American car in the next six months, you're going to get... one of these. (Laughter)

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's a T‑shirt.

PAT: It's a 2016, Chicago 2016 T‑shirt.

(Applause).

VOICE: Now, I just don't see why the right is so riled up. I mean, how do you think the left feels? They are the ones that should be mad. Now, I'm sure they thought I would have addressed at least one of the following things by now: Global warming. No. Immigration reform? No. Gays in the military? Nuh‑uh. Limits on executive powers? No. Torture prosecutions? No. So looking at this list I'm seeing two big accomplishments: Jack and squat. (Laughter). And remember, I can do whatever I want. I have a majority in both houses of congress. I could make it mandatory for all gays to marry and require all cars to run on marijuana, but do I? No. (Laughter). But it's not all bad news. I have a few accomplishments. The Cash For Clunkers program really stimulated the economy. Unfortunately it was the economy of Japan. (Laughter). Let's see what else. Also I killed a fly on TV. Remember that? (Laughter). I brought a white police officer and a black professor together for a beer. Who else could do that? (Laughter). You're right. Oprah. No one else. (Laughter). So please stop saying this country is on the road to socialism. If that were actually the case, I'd be making some real changes. Instead it took me four months to pick out a dog. So all of you frothing Glenn Beck supporters, put away those tricorner hats and those PhotoShop pictures of me as the Joker because if I see any more of this hateful rhetoric, I'm going to have to take drastic action... no, not really. (Laughter).

PAT: So that's essentially it.

STU: That's a pretty funny ‑‑ it's a pretty funny bit.

PAT: Mildly amusing.

GLENN: It's groundbreaking. Mildly amusing? It is groundbreaking. I have not seen anyone in the mainstream media take on anyone, no one. This is the first comedic punt.

PAT: Yeah. It's interesting how they took him on, though. They took him on if that he hasn't done enough of his leftist agenda.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: I mean you are not socialist enough.

GLENN: That's how they take him on. You did take over the car companies, yeah.

STU: But that's okay. At least it's something.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: You've got to give him credit for that.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: Like we criticized George Bush generally because he wasn't being conservative enough. That doesn't mean it wasn't criticism.

GLENN: When Barack Obama can't get the Olympics done, I mean, this is a debacle. Valerie Jarrett said, "Our intel said we were really close, we were number two. There was only ‑‑ it was down to two of us." They were last place. They were in last place. Their intelligence was wrong on the Olympic committee. Can you imagine how good our intelligence is on Iran?

PAT: It's a little scary.

GLENN: I mean, it's unbelievable. And by the way, it took 48 minutes before they started blaming it on George Bush.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It took an hour and 42 minutes before they started blaming the loss on me.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's amazing.

PAT: By the way, this isn't about the number of Olympics lost. It's about the number of Olympics saved or created. They are still on track. They are still on track.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: So let's give them a break.

GLENN: Okay, thank you, Pat, I appreciate that.

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
