Glenn Beck: Obama dishing out spankings


[youtube http://www.youtube.com/v/3Fg1rP4yIhw&hl=en&fs=1&rel=0 expand=1]

Barack Obama campaigned on a promise of unity, bi-partisanship and the whole we'll all be holding hands utopian dream. That clearly hasn't happened so far...

GLENN: From high above Times Square in Midtown Manhattan, this is the third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. Let's start with some audio from Barack Obama.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know the other side, they just kind of sometimes do what they're told. Democrats, y'all are thinking for yourselves.

GLENN: Oh, I can't take this. I can't take this. The Democrats are an opinionated bunch. Okay. Can you please make this work with "I'm for the Chamber of Commerce when they're for me, and I will destroy them had they're not doing exactly what they're told"? How about this: FTC yesterday, they're going after, they're going after the insurance companies now. They have decided to get rid of the, what is it, Stu? Shoot, I have it in my paperwork. The they went after the insurance companies yesterday.

STU: Oh, the antitrust stuff.

GLENN: Antitrust stuff. Why did they do that? Because the insurance companies came out and said, no, no healthcare. So they are being spanked. Fox speaks out? We're spanked. I mean, it's amazing to me. Hang on just a second. You're spanking everyone who disagrees with you.

PAT: Oh, but he wants, he wants the feedback and he enjoys the Democratic process.

STU: He sure does.

PAT: And that discussion and that dialogue is so good. This guy is so good.

GLENN: It's amazing to me how he is he says one thing, he's like, I'm going to shoot you in the head, but what I want to make very clear here is I've never said that we should shoot people in the head. I mean, it's amazing how they can say one thing while actually doing the other.

STU: And maybe I'm not remembering an example of this, but I don't ever remember George W. Bush saying every Democrat was told what to do.

PAT: Never.

GLENN: Never.

STU: And was never thinking. He would have been so

PAT: He would have been crucified in the media for doing that.

STU: Of course. Describing your entire opposition as brainless zombies?

GLENN: May I let me give you something to chew on. This is start here. The best way to win is to unite people, okay? Reach out to people. Unite them, as many as you can. But when you come to a point to where your poll numbers are going down, you then have to divide them. You then have to do you have to energize your own base against the enemy, okay? That's what, you know, the Republicans were doing with, you know, saying all Democrats, look at these Democrats; they're un American, et cetera, et cetera. And I don't even think the Republicans really did that, but their surrogates did. And the same thing goes with the Democrats. The Democrats were out there doing that and their surrogates, okay? All he's doing now is he's energizing his base because I think they are, they're seeing their own collapse. You can see it in the polls. Did you see the Rasmussen poll?

PAT: Yeah. He's down a lot.

GLENN: Yeah, he's really starting to tank here. Now, the tanking for him is, you know, different than, you know, tanking for others. It's the lowest he's ever been. Now, he's always had skyrocketing ratings, but he's what is he, in the 40s yet? Is he at 48%?

STU: Yeah, we talked

PAT: Yeah, 40%. Well, here's the latest from Rasmussen. 27% strongly approve. 27% strongly approve. 40% strongly disapprove. That's a negative 13.

STU: Right. But his overall approval is in the high 40s still, right?

GLENN: When his overall approval goes down to 42, he's impotent.

STU: Well, because I mean, there was a poll the other day that had his overall approval at 45. That's the lowest I've seen it.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: But he is when you hit 42%, it takes an act of God to get you back up over 40 up over, you know, 50%. Once you hit I think the magic number's 41 or something like that. Once you hit that number, you're pretty much impotent. You can't you're never going to be back up to where he was, unless there's an emergency.

PAT: And let's not forget he was at, was it 72?

STU: Oh, yeah. When he started he was in the high 60s.

GLENN: But he had no place to go but down.

STU: We expected that.

PAT: Fall so far, so fast. You would think maybe 60 by now, but 47?

GLENN: This is what I said, when nobody was watching us over on Headline News and I said this president has real trouble in front of him. If this guy is elected this is when Hillary Clinton, they were going back and forth. Look at what this man is promising. He is almost being imaged at the time as a god, and he's going to change the dialogue, he's going to change everything, it's going to be you know, the little Disney animals are going to talk. And he has promised everything. If he starts to break his promises, he's done. He's done.

STU: Right. And that was what I think a lot of people were thinking the reason is. Was it Pew today that came out and said it was the fastest or one of the fastest presidents' drops that they had in their history in the third quarter of their presidency, by the third quarter of their presidency which was from, you know, up in the, you know, 60s down to, I think their Pew was still at 53. I mean, so that's a pretty good poll for him at this point. And they still said it was one of the biggest drops they had ever seen. And, you know, some of that is to be expected as far as, like no one holds, you know, when Bush was at 90% at this point of his presidency because 9/11, no one expects him to be 90% throughout his entire presidency.

PAT: Of course not.

STU: But this is a fairly precipitous drop, which is significant to point out.

GLENN: But let me go back to Barack Obama. Let's put Barack Obama back on. Play what he said again.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Democrats are an opinionated bunch. You know the other side, they just kind of sometimes do what they're told. Democrats, y'all are thinking for yourselves. I like that in you.

GLENN: Lockstep

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But it's time for us to make sure that we finish the job here. We are this close.

GLENN: Okay. So here's my new response, anybody Barack Obama says, you know, the Republicans are just stuck in the past. Yep, yep, they are. So are the Democrats. But yep, you got that one right. You got half of that equation right. I mean, why not, if they are going to go after and try to paint the Republicans as the bad guys, let them do it. Because quite honestly any party that thinks that their winning strategy I mean, there's a great story in the Politico today that they're still debating whether or not, you know, these angry voices... I'm not angry. Well, no, I take that back. I am angry. I'm angry that both parties have destroyed our country, that we have put they have put us on the brink of destruction. So yeah, I am angry. I am angry that they have lied to us every step of the way. I am angry that it is so riddled with corruption and yet we are almost powerless to do anything about it because they've set up all the rules, that there is no, there is no rule for them anymore. So yeah, I am angry... but it's not an angry like I hate everybody and I hate the country. I just, I'm angry at the people who have lied to us. I'm just angry at the people who haven't done their job. I've been doing my job. You've been doing your job at home? I think we've been doing our job because we get fired. But you guys rigged the system so much that you can't get fired. You can't get fired. And if we do try to fire you, you do what you're doing in New York or in Pennsylvania. We fire you; Arlen Specter, get the hell out. What happens? The Republicans go and they replace Arlen Specter with another Arlen Specter. In New York what?

STU: What do you mean?

GLENN: When Toomy was coming up and they were like, no, no, hey, wait a minute, hang on just a second.

STU: Right. They've always been hesitant with Toomy. They are with him now, yeah.

GLENN: And you believe that? Look what they're doing in New York.

STU: I'm not saying that they're a principle party. I'm saying they are supporting Toomy in New York.

GLENN: We have a Republican candidate in New York that not only has been endorsed by ACORN but accepted the endorsement.

PAT: Then they try to place it on the likes of us: They're still on the "Conservatives are hurting the party" stuff.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: No!

GLENN: I really don't we were having a conversation about this last night. We don't have to agree on an awful lot at this point. You know, it's not like, "And which church do you go to? Which god do you believe in?" We don't have to go there. If you don't believe in God our founders did. But you know what? Thomas Paine didn't. That's kind of in dispute, but I'm willing to go that Thomas Paine didn't. I'm willing to go. At least he had serious doubt. Well, was he ostracized? No.

STU: No. He believed in a lot of stuff that we would not agree with.

GLENN: Yes. Because he

STU: Still a founder.

GLENN: Because the picture was so huge, you could say, look, okay, so you don't believe in God. That's okay. A good human being, you a decent man? Yeah. Great. Come on over. It was okay. It was okay. We don't have to agree on an awful lot. We have to agree on principles of, does merit matter. Does merit matter. Does what you do matter? Should you succeed and fail based on what you accomplish, or what you can't get accomplished? Should you pay for your own debts? Should you if you've screwed it up, should you take responsibility? If you break the law, should you go to jail? That's one thing that we have to take. Are we a meritocracy anymore? Or do we just give everybody everything? Is it free everything? And nobody pays any price unless that price is exacted because of an opinion. Not because of what you've done but because of an opinion. That is the question that we have to ask. Then we have to say, okay, wait a minute, okay, I got that; no, I don't think it should be opinion based; I think it should be merit based. Great. Should you be accountable? Yes. Great. I mean, really what else at this point we're down to so we're down so far that it should be easy to cobble together a coalition, you know? A coalition of accountability. Hold me accountable for what I do. Hold me accountable for the laws that I live within. Hold me accountable don't talk to me about, oh, well, I inherited, I inherited, I inherited. How long would we accept that from anybody? Would you accept that from any business person, any business person? Well, I inherited a fix the damn problem. Can you imagine, can you imagine your kids coming to you? "Well, mom, I inherited this dirty room." Excuse me? Clean your room.

STU: Yeah, exactly.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Well, my sister was in here and she messed up my whole room. She messed up the room. I get it. You'd say to them, I get it, but I need you to clean your room. You wouldn't go another week. You wouldn't go another day. "Didn't I just tell you the clean the room?" "Mom, I'm in here mopping up and I am..." no, you're not. You're making it more messy. I'm not going to accept you telling me that I'm cleaning my room the wrong way. You need a spanking. That's what you need.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

Image source: (left) Video screenshot/ (Right) Mario Tama/Getty Images

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Photo by Demetrius Freeman/The Washington Post via Getty Images

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
