PAT: Glenn, I'm in the weather center now and we have

VOICE: And now, scattered showers of journalism.

GLENN: Let me go to now our journalistic weatherman Pat Gray who is sensing some sort of

PAT: Scattered showers breaking out.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: A little journalism occurred yesterday during the press conference, the White House press conference with Robert Gibbs.

GLENN: All right, let's see what's on the radar.

Q: During the campaign, President Obama on numerous occasions said words to the effect of, quoting one, “all of this will be done on C SPAN in front of the public.” Do you agree that the President is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

Q: In spite of the fact that he promised to do this on C SPAN?

GIBBS: I would refer you to what we talked about in this room yesterday.

Q: But the President, in this meeting yesterday, pressed for something that’s in direct violation of a promise he made during the campaign.

GIBBS: And I addressed that yesterday.

Q: Well does the President believe it would be more helpful if this process were more transparent, that the American people could see…

GIBBS: How many stories do you think NBC has done on this?

Q: Speaking for myself, hundreds…

GIBBS: Hundreds?

Q: That’s not the issue, the issue is whether he broke an explicit campaign promise.

GIBBS: So the answer is hundreds. Is that correct?

Q: Well that has nothing to do with it. I deal with the information, however much or little of it there is. I’m saying, would people benefit from more information?

GIBBS: Have you lacked information in some of those stories? Do you think you’ve reported stuff that was inaccurate based on the lack of information?

Q: Democrats ran against the very sort of process that is being employed in this health care debate.

GIBBS: We had this discussion yesterday. I answered this yesterday. Is there anything else?

GLENN: Listen to this, man.

GIBBS: And he will do some today. Do you have another comment? Okay.

PAT: Even CBS and NBC are getting fed up. I mean, they actually pressed him. They actually pressed him.

GLENN: This is the time that I warned, and we're not there yet but we're approaching it. We are approaching it. This is the time that I warned that Barack Obama is a man behind the mask. And at some point like Mission Impossible, he is going to pull off the proverbial mask. He's not a guy who has been I mean, you see him. Whenever anybody pushes him just a little bit, he goes crazy. He goes nuts. The press is going to start pushing and pushing and pushing. His poll numbers are down. His programs are starting to fall apart and be exposed. I mean, just look at the papers every day. Look at the front page of Drudge every single day. How many times do you not read the front page of Drudge and just go, oh, my gosh. It's all coming apart. You know, play this. Play this again. I mean, play the audio again. I think we need to add one thing because this is go ahead. Here's Gibbs. As you're hearing this...

VOICE: During the campaign the president on numerous occasions

GLENN: I mean, if we need to add a sound track, it would be this.

VOICE: all of this will be done on C Span in front of the public. Do you agree that the president is breaking an explicit campaign promise?

GIBBS: You know Chip, we covered this yesterday and I would refer you to yesterday’s transcript.

Q: (Inaudible) today?

GIBBS: The answer I would give today is similar to the one…

Q: There was an intervening meeting in which it’s been reported that the President, the President pressed the leaders in Congress to take the fast track approach to skip the conference committee. Did he do that?

GIBBS: The President wants to get a bill to his desk as quickly as possible.

GLENN: Isn't it kind of like, Gibbs is kind of like, "I think there might be some sharks in the water. Is that a fin I saw?" Pretty soon you just expect Gibbs just to go down behind the podium just kind of like... and pop back up. (Laughing). I mean, it is and it's good to see.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: That the press is starting to actually do their job, and it's almost like, you know, they're a little concerned every time that they meet the press. It's not like, hey, it was good to see you last night. Wasn't that movie great? It was so great you guys taking me out to avatar last night. I mean, it's nice so see that there is a little pushback.

PAT: And Gibbs isn't used to it. So when it happens, he really shows his true colors. Like, what? I'm not telling you anything.

STU: When you say true colors, do you mean incompetence?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Because he is not good at the position he holds.

PAT: He's awful.

GLENN: He's not been challenged, either.

STU: Right.

GLENN: None of these people in this administration.

STU: Some of them have, some of them have challenged Gibbs.

GLENN: But not together. They have not ganged, not gang attacked.

PAT: No, it's been mostly Jake Tapper and, you know, Major Garrett.

STU: Scattered showers. Yeah, Major Garrett definitely.

GLENN: The question is, the question is when a press conference becomes hostile or when a press conference becomes like it should be, like it even was under George W. Bush, when they actually start to ask this president and back him up to a wall and not allow him to get away with blatant lies, how does this president react? We've never seen him in that situation before.

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.
