Glenn Beck: Obama Excuses Wearing Thin

GLENN: From high above Times Square, Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. My name is Glenn Beck. Have you heard the news, my friend? President Obama has inherited an economic mess from the Bush administration. This is from an article entitled Obama Excuses Wearing Thin from the Chicago Sun Times. You say you've hardly heard this news? But it's been the message sounded over and over by the White House. Top Obama advisor David Axelrod said on one of the many Sunday news shows, quote, he walked in the door, we had the worst economy since the Great Depression. In San Francisco this is what Barack Obama was saying.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm busy and Nancy's busy with our mop cleaning up somebody else's mess.

GLENN: That's right. In San Francisco.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don't want somebody sitting back saying you are not holding the mop the right way.

GLENN: He talked about being busy with our mop. White House heavy hitter Rahm Emanuel used the "worst economy since the Great Depression" line on the public TV news shows on Sunday. The Chicago Sun Times says that you'd think it was October 2008, the final month in the Obama presidential candidacy, rather than October 2009, nine months into the Obama presidency. Yet, the Obama White House is in full fledged campaign mode because it needs to mask the shortcomings of the Obama presidency. Take, for example, says the Chicago Sun Times, all the talk of inheriting the worst economy since the 1930s crisis.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: My administration inherited a deficit of over $1 trillion but because we also inherited the most profound economic emergency since the Great Depression...

GLENN: Okay. Got it? The most profound economic crisis since the Great Depression. That came into response to the news that the federal deficit hit $1.4 trillion.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We are going through the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.

GLENN: Got it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We've lost now 3.6 million jobs, but what's perhaps even more disturbing is that almost half of that job loss has taken place over the last three months.

GLENN: Yet just a few months ago the Obama camp was signing the stimulus package and they were singing a different tune. Because it was under criticism for the $787 billion stimulus package that had bulldozed through congress on the grounds that massive spending was needed to keep the unemployment rate from breaching 8%. When joblessness hit 9.5% in June, vice president Joe Biden said?

BIDEN: The truth is we and everyone else misfigured the economy. The figures we worked off in January were the consensus figures of most of the blue chip indexes out there.

GLENN: So they inherited the worst economy and the worst economic situation since the Great Depression. And the economy turned out to be worse than they thought. Which is it? Can anyone answer that question? It can't be both. The Chicago suns times says unless your brain is completely addled by the Obama charisma. Obama is still popular but polls show that the public is losing faith in his policies. We'll give you those polls from CNN here in a few minutes. Another indicator was Saturday Night Live, a skit lampooning Obama for the major accomplishments of his administration, Jack and Squat.

VOICE: Looking at this list I'm seeing two big accomplishments: Jack and Squat.

GLENN: Now, if the honeymoon is ending with the American voter, it isn't for the obsequious elements of the mainstream media. CNN prostrated itself fact checking the Jack and Squat skit from Saturday Night Live.

VOICE: The best improvements from the war in Afghanistan, is it better? No, I think it's actually worse.

VOICE: But is there any truth to this?

VOICE: They got some things wrong. For example

VOICE: Bill Adair, editor of PolitiFact.com, a nonpartisan fact checking website that rates statements of officials says SNL missed some of the marks on some of its claims. For instance, Afghanistan.

VOICE: I think SNL tended to kind of gloss over what is a fair amount of progress by this administration about sending two additional brigades to Afghanistan. We rated that a promise kept.

GLENN: That is unbelievable.

PAT: This just in. MSNBC has just fact checked last night's SpongeBob SquarePants episode.

GLENN: I mean, when have you ever seen that done?

STU: Crabby patties are not that expensive, and they need to make sure that the people know it.

PAT: Nor do they taste that good frankly.

STU: They are okay.

PAT: Sometimes they are stale.

GLENN: Chicago Sun Times continues: But that's harmless compared to the virulent campaign against Obama critics carried out by the denizens of MSNBC. It's Obama acolytes seek to demonize opponents of Obama's policies by focusing on most marginal corners of rightwing politics like, for example, the Birthers who deny that Obama is a natural born citizen. The larger scheme is to imply that Obama critics are racists.

VOICE: Janine Garofalo, good to see you.

GAROFALO: Thank you, there is nothing more interesting than seeing a bunch of racists become confused and angry at a speech they are not quite certain what to think. It sounds right to them and then it doesn't make sense which, let's be very honest about what this is about. It's not about bashing Democrats. It's not about bashing taxes. They have no idea what the Boston tea party is about. They don't know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism state up.

GLENN: You don't even know what the Boston tea party is really all about. That's the backdrop to the story of Rush Limbaugh, getting booted from a group bidding to buy the St. Louis rams. He was smeared on CNN and MSNBC with false accusations of making two racist comments. He is an abrasive critic of Obama; so he must be racist, or so goes the leftwing story line, writes the Chicago Sun Times. They continue: I wouldn't defend everything Limbaugh has ever said, but lies were used to blacklist him from professional football for his political views. Recently an MSNBC personality accused the U.S. Chamber of Commerce of lobbying for policies that amount to being treasonous to this country.

VOICE: Tom, that's irrelevant. That's irrelevant. If I set up a business where I can speculate

TOM: I'm not exactly sure the point you want to make.

VOICE: Let me finish. If I set up a business where I can speculate with your money, Tom, where I can go to your account and you're every taxpayer in America and the more I speculate with, the more I make, of course I'm going to speculate until the thing blows up. So unless the government and people like you that lobby to the exemptions that allow banks to do that get out of the way, we will never have fair play again in this country and we'll have job creation by virtue of taxpayer theft, which is ultimately destructive, and I would argue treasonous to this country.

GLENN: Did he say job creation through taxpayer funds?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And that's treasonous. Do I have that right? Job creation through taxpayer funds.

PAT: So the stimulus would have

GLENN: Don't think it through.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Remember how writing in the Chicago Sun Times, remember how liberals roared in outrage at any hint of their patriotism being questioned for criticizing the Iraq war. Well, it is the left that doesn't shy from attacking the patriotism of those it dislikes. Recall the repulsive moveon.org General Betrayus ad against Iraqi commander General David Petraeus. Recent opposition to Chicago's Olympic bid was cast as sign of lack of patriotism among Obama critics. An MSNBC blast against the chamber appears to dovetail with what the Politico newspaper reports is a White House and Democratic effort to marginalize the business organization that echoes the administration assault on Fox News. It says Fox isn't a news organization.

VOICE: It's not so much a conflict with Fox News but unlike, I suppose, the way to look at it and the way the president looks at it, we look as it is it's not a news organization so much as it has a perspective. And that's a different take. And more importantly is not have the CNNs and the others in the world basically be led and following Fox.

VOICE: I don't you know, I'm not concerned. Mr. Murdock has a talent for making money, and I understand that their programming is geared toward making money. All the only argument Anita was making is that they are not really a news station, if you watch even it's not just their commentators but a lot of their news programming, it's really not news. It's pushing a point of view and the bigger thing is that other news organizations like yours ought not to treat them that way and we are not going to treat them that way. We're going to appear on their shows, we're going to participate but understanding that they represent a point of view.

GLENN: The White House is trying to dictate who's a news organization. Democrats are out to gut the Chamber of Commerce. Obama media allies damning Americans as racist, unpatriotic and now treasonous. Is this the America Obama promised when he campaigned to end the cynical and divisive politics of the past? That's in the Chicago Sun Times. Would you explain to me the story about the Obama administration now in bed with Media Matters on Fox News? Do you have that, Pat?

PAT: Yeah. Let's see.

STU: You said now embedded? Like as if there was another state of being?

PAT: Here's what moveon.org just sent out. Dear moveon member: All year Fox has worked 24/7 to block President Obama's agenda, repeating lies about death panels, promoting tea party protests and whipping up fake political scandals. Now President Obama is fighting back. The White House

GLENN: Hold on. Hold on just a second. What are the fake political scandals? And if it was so fake, shouldn't Van Jones sue the White House? He was forced to resign I'm sorry. No, he hasn't. He decided to resign. Should he have resigned over a fake political scandal? How about the NEA? Is that fake? This is quite the charge. I'd sure like an answer to that. Shouldn't you sue me if these charges are false? I mean, shouldn't you at least come out and make the charge? I mean, don't you have a right to face your accusers in this country? See, I will clearly, if we got it wrong and we have our researchers, I mean, I can show you all the paperwork that we've done. We have not done it to just higgledy piggledy run and smear somebody. We haven't done that. There's may I show you the board in the other room on the things that I could say but haven't? Because we don't have them verified? I mean, I got a list a mile long. If I were being irresponsible, I'd go with that list.

Elon Musk responded to allegations that he exposed himself to a corporate jet flight attendant by daring his accuser to "describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public."

"I have a challenge to this liar who claims their friend saw me “exposed” – describe just one thing, anything at all (scars, tattoos, …) that isn’t known by the public. She won’t be able to do so, because it never happened," Musk posted on twitter.

A Business Insider report on Thursday, alleged that a flight attendant for SpaceX's private jet fleet was paid $250,000 in 2018 to settle a sexual misconduct claim against the company's founder and CEO. A friend of the flight attendant signed a declaration accusing the tech billionaire of exposing himself to the attendant, who is also a licensed massage therapist, during an in-flight massage.

According to the declaration, the flight attendant told her friend that Musk asked her to come to his private cabin "for a full body massage" during a flight in late 2016. When she arrived, Musk "was completely naked except for a sheet covering the lower half of his body." The friend also told Insider that Musk propositioned the flight attendant, then "touched her thigh and told her he would buy her a horse."

One day before the Insider story was published, Musk predicted an escalation in political attacks against him after revealing on a podcast that he plans to vote Republican in the next election cycle.

Musk called the sexual misconduct allegations "wild accusations [that] are utterly untrue" and challenged his accuser to verify her claims by describing a certain something “not known by the public" about his private parts.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray reacted to the incredible "coincidence" of such allegations cropping up just days after the SpaceX CEO announced his intention to vote Republican in the next election cycle — not to mention joining Glenn's longrunning anti-ESG crusade by calling the corporate score system a "scam."

Anyone paying attention can see that President Biden is in dire straights come 2024, regardless of who his opponent may be. His administration has been workshopping several ideas to try and craft just the right message. One that will cut through all the noise (failures) and put him on a more solid footing should he go head-to-head in a rematch with the former President.

Biden called in the big guns and he wasn't afraid to call in a few favors either. He drew on his stint as VP and called Anita Dunn out of the bullpen and tapped the Center for American Progress Action Fund to try and help pull this one out. After an exhaustive six-month-long study into how President Trump was able to summon the magic of MAGA — they finally feel they have the winning message.

Dunn has gotten sloppy, however, since her days in the Obama administration. We obtained her contemporaneous notes and emails showing how they coined the term "ultra-MAGA," trying to get a little "extra pop" to his rhetoric. The leaked emails also show the evolution of the messaging over that same six-month period.


[The preceding Memo was a parody written by MRA writers Josh Jennings and Jon Boldt – not the Biden administration.]

Almost every week, new incriminating evidence is mined from Hunter’s wild laptop. And the proof is mounting that President Joe Biden is lying about his knowledge of his family’s crooked deal-making. Everyone knows Hunter Biden is a seriously degenerate guy. Anyone who has handled his infamous laptop needs a tetanus shot.

The salacious stuff on the laptop is sad and pathetic for sure, but that stuff is NOT what is most relevant to the United States. Glenn Beck exposes how the laptop is REALLY about Joe Biden, his abuse of power as vice president, and his ongoing denials now as president.

Now that the 2020 election has passed and their man is in office, the mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit Hunter’s laptop is not Russian disinformation after all. No one has done more research into the Biden family corruption than journalist and best-selling author Peter Schweizer. He has researched the depths of Hunter’s laptop and found more than racy photos. “These aren’t HUNTER’S business deals,” Peter says, “they benefit the WHOLE family.” And he has the emails to prove it.

But the mainstream media still insist President Biden is as pure as his thinning white hair in all of this. As Glenn reveals tonight, he is not. But will anyone in the Biden family see jail time? Americans are fed up with two sets of rules – one for regular citizens and one for the ruling elites.

Intelligent people know that wokerness plagues society and must be ridiculed and eradicated from conversations. But what happens when people lose their jobs for calling out the absurdity of woke ideology? What happens when corporations and media sources weaponize wokeness?

Here are five videos that will help us better understand a few of the many issues that wokeness inflicts on society and how we can stand against it.

Bye bye, Target. You crossed the line!

In this clip, BlazeTV host Allie Stuckey of "Relatable" explains how Target recently announced the sale of chest binders and "packing underwear" for women. She expresses how children can be negatively impacted by the sale of confusing clothing items for people suffering from gender dysphoria and the importance of loving the body God gave us.

Today, Allie notices that Target's stock experienced a 35-year record drop. Apparel was named as one of the two underperforming departments. Was pushback from critics of gender-affirming apparel the cause? It is hard to tell, but Allie encourages her audience to continue speaking out when corporations cross the line by making harmful products available for sale to the public.

Wokeness can get you fired

In this clip, Stu Burguiere covers a story about a man who challenged Black Lives Matter using nothing but data and was fired.

Here's the story: "I had been at Thomson Reuters for over six years—most recently, leading a team of data scientists applying new machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to our legal, tax and news data. We advised any number of divisions inside the company, including Westlaw, an online legal research service used by most every law firm in the country, and the newsroom, which reaches an audience of one billion every day around the globe. I briefed the Chief Technology Officer regularly. My total annual compensation package exceeded $350,000." Read more

Coca-Cola circumvents Constitution with TERRIFYING mandates on diversity

Glenn Beck loves Coca-Cola. So much so, in fact, that he refuses to drink Pepsi if Coke isn't available. But ... he says the time has come for him to give up his favorite soda. Why? Because Coca-Cola just announced some terrifying new company policies on diversity and equity. It sent out notices to all partnered law firms, demanding a required percentage of diverse attorneys on any legal team working for the corporation. The notice says all legal teams also must report these numbers quarterly and they will lose Coca-Cola's business if they do not comply.

"Equity is not the same thing as equality," Glenn said, adding that equality means we all have an equal chance, while equality means we all have the same outcome.

Glenn explains how mandates like this could affect everybody — even the guy working on the factory line or the truck driver delivering the drinks. Glenn also explains how Coke's new move is nothing less than a circumvention of the Constitution, and he predicts more companies (especially those in support of the Great Reset) will follow with similar policies, too.

Coca-Cola takes a 'pause' on woke initiatives after after pressure from the Right

Glenn followed up on a story about Coca-Cola becoming 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, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appeared to shift directions.

Calvin Klein's gender blender ruins sex and Mothers' Day

Chad Prather reflected back to the Great Depression era of enticing photographic entertainment, otherwise known as the callow and deprived years of his youth, when a Calvin Klein pictorial of old would have represented something exciting, something to, say, think about at the end of the day. Had he run across this present weird concept at that age, he would have either been disgusted on sight … or possibly really disgusted when his dumb a** put two and two together the next day. Anyway, his point is: Has the whole world gone crazy? Do we really need this? At this inclusive embracing point in our recent history, what in the world makes Calvin Klein feel the need to be the standard-bearer for a lifestyle screamed largely into existence by a very vocal minority?

Former Disney artist SPEAKS OUT: ‘It’s time to do something’

A former Disney artist, who wishes to remain anonymous, joins Glenn to describe WHY he recently took action against his former employer: ‘I'm tired of watching my country go down the drain. And it's time to do something.’ Today’s woke Disney is not what Walt once imagined, he says, and his recent video release — "It’s A Woke World After All" — exposes Disney’s large stray from its roots ...
