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.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
