Glenn Beck: President Obama Is Still Bashing Bush




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

Here's how President Obama summed up Tuesday's massive political earthquake in Massachusetts:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: People are angry and they're frustrated. Not just because of what's happened in the last year or two years, but what's happened over the last eight years.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Believe it or not: It's still Bush's fault. He actually started out his interview with George Stephanopoulos by blaming the voter anger in Massachusetts on George W. Bush. So, help me with that, Barack: The people are mad at Bush for what he did eight years ago, so they voted for a Republican?

Take that, George Bush! We'll help out Obama... by voting for a Republican! That'll show him and that evil Karl Rove, too!

That's like getting mad at oil companies because of high gas prices and switching from Exxon to Shell. I hate these big oil people, so I'm going to switch to Chevron!

Stop insulting our intelligence.

But, he wasn't finished. There was more misdirection and phantom reasoning: Not only are they mad at Bush, but he was just so busy working so hard on the business they elected him to take care of that, well listen:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: We were so busy just getting stuff done and dealing with the immediate crises that were in front of us, that I think we lost some of that sense of, of, you know, speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are...

I think that, you know, what they've ended up seeing is this feeling of remoteness and detachment.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He lost touch, all right — with reality. There were 158 Obama interviews and 411 speeches, comments or statements during his first year. How much "touch" does he think we need from him? If only we could've just seen him without his shirt on. Wait, we did. Maybe just an occasional photo of him or his wife, somewhere would've helped.

Because, gosh, we just didn't see him enough. He was everywhere. The only place he didn't show up was in my bedroom with my wife. At least, I don't think... no, that was John Edwards. At least I think it was — so far, he's denying it.

What Obama either doesn't understand — or he just doesn't care — is that what we actually need is — I don't know — maybe a president who is not a radical revolutionary; a president who is not trying to fundamentally transform our country.

The election of Scott Brown should give him some clue of that. Every poll taken lately, should help clue him in to that.

When health care has the support of just 38 percent of the American people and yet you are still trying to ram it down our throats, that's not what we want, that is a radical agenda.

When the polls show America is a center-right leaning nation — 76 percent of Americans identify themselves as either conservative or moderate — but you continue to seize control of businesses, threaten to control wages of private business executives, tax, spend and redistribute wealth with a daily barrage of Karl Marx-inspired class warfare, well then you haven't just lost direct touch with the American people, you were never in touch, in the first place.

Even Bill Clinton understood the message from the American people in 1995, better than Barack Obama:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON: We heard America shouting. And now all of us — Republicans and Democrats alike — must say: We hear you.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Did you catch that? Bill Clinton said we heard you. This president says, you didn't hear me:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I think we lost some of that sense of, of, you know, speaking directly to the American people about what their core values are...

I think that, you know, what they've ended up seeing is this feeling of remoteness and detachment

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The arrogance of this administration is astounding. To paraphrase scripture: In their arrogance, they built a tower to reach the sky. The arrogance of this generation of progressives, will be their undoing.

Maybe it's just me and you and tens of millions of others just like us, but I don't get it.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.
