Glenn Beck: No accomplishments = Nobel for Obam


The Obama National Anthem...

GLENN: President Obama has won a Nobel Peace Prize for his accomplishments. Now, not a lot of people know this, but the nomination period ended, was it two weeks before or two weeks after?

PAT: Two weeks after.

GLENN: Two weeks after.

PAT: He was in office.

GLENN: So they had two weeks in office.

PAT: Those were, if you remember, right?

GLENN: Those were big weeks.

PAT: Huge, huge weeks for him.

GLENN: We're not sure yet. The Nobel Prize comes with $1.4 million, and I'm ‑‑ that's a million dollars more than his salary. We're going to have to check with the pay czar to find out if that's too much money for him to have because, you know, we would hate to have him have too much money and then violate any kind of new rules that, you know, well, he's the president; forget about it, there's no rules for the president anymore. Hang on, more breaking news.

PAT: Glenn, we have to break away for some important news. We go to Steve Burguiere, producer Steve Burguiere who is at Cambridge, Massachusetts right now with this important ‑‑ somebody please wake up the president.

GLENN: I think he's ‑‑ he might be awake. Is he awake by now?

PAT: Important breaking news from Cambridge. Go ahead, Stu.

GLENN: Even when he's asleep, he's awake. Go ahead.

STU: Glenn, are you awake?

GLENN: I am awake. I'm pretty sure when the president is asleep, he's awake. He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake, he knows when you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.

PAT: For goodness sake.

STU: Thank God for that. Glenn, we have exciting news. This is just coming down. I'm here in Cambridge live right now.

GLENN: Yes. Stu can you hear me?

GLENN: Yes, I can hear you.

STU: Okay, good. That's good that you ‑‑ basically what just happened here, and this is quite monumental ‑‑

PAT: Sounds like you have quite a crowd assembled behind you, Stu.

STU: Yes, there's a huge amount of people here. I'm probably being drowned out by the music and it's probably too loud for you to hear the crowd but ‑‑

PAT: Let's hear it for a sec. Turn the ‑‑

STU: The music is too loud. The music ‑‑

GLENN: All right, go ahead.

STU: Right now, Glenn, you have been ‑‑ this is fantastic. You have been awarded the valedictorian here at Cambridge. Congratulations. I mean, what an honor.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute. Let me get my arms around this. What did you just say?

STU: You have been awarded the valedictorian of the Class of 2010.

GLENN: What is her name?

STU: No, I don't think ‑‑

PAT: I think he's saying you are the valedictorian.

GLENN: Oh, I thought you were giving me the valedictorian because that would be ‑‑ I didn't know. I'm sorry. Go ahead. So I am the ‑‑ but I don't go to Harvard.

STU: No, you didn't win that award at all but you still have won, you've won the valedictorian at Cambridge.

GLENN: How did I ‑‑ I don't go to ‑‑

STU: At Cambridge.

PAT: Have they just decided that if he had gone to Harvard, he would have done so well that he would become the valedictorian?

STU: Yeah. And the bottom line is his intent is to be really smart and do very well at Harvard.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, hang on just a second because what about Cambridge? Because Cambridge, you know, I know it's Cambridge, Massachusetts and Harvard but what about Cambridge?

STU: You are saying Cambridge in the U.K.?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You've won there, too, although I wasn't going to brag, but congratulations.

GLENN: Really? Hang on just a second. I am shocked and humbled by this. I mean, what have I done? Get the award here as soon as you can, all right?

STU: Glenn, we have ‑‑

GLENN: Does it come with any prize money?

STU: Yes. You have $3.9 million given to you but, of course, you'll be donating that to your charity of choice.

GLENN: Yes, my children.

STU: Of course. And also, Glenn, remember we did e‑mail your office for comment and they just responded with one word: Wow.

GLENN: All right. Thank you very much. The valedictorian now of Cambridge and Harvard.

PAT: Wow. Has that ever happened before? I don't think that's ‑‑

GLENN: I don't think it has.

PAT: I don't think that's ever happened.

GLENN: Now, I don't mean to boast here but I've won two valedictorians and I'm going to put them proudly, I'm going to put them proudly on my ‑‑ no, I'm sorry. I keep thinking that I get the people, but I don't get ‑‑

PAT: No, you don't get the people.

GLENN: All right. So I don't even know what shape that is or what it looks like or ‑‑ I mean, is there a certificate that comes with that? I don't know. But I don't mean to brag here, but I believe I'm the only one to not attend Harvard or Cambridge and become their valedictorian.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
