Glenn Beck: Obama's new strategy

GLENN: White House advisors promise a quicker, more aggressive response to GOP attacks on the president and his policies. Well, looks like I better start wearing a vest. They noted that the White House advisors have pushed back hard against Republican accusations that the FBI mishandled interrogation of the man accused of trying to bomb an airliner on Christmas Day as Biden did on Sunday. Oh, good. So they are going to unleash Biden. I'm sorry. I'm trying to act afraid of Joe Biden. (Clearing throat). That terrifies me. I don't know, but I I don't know about you, but he's such a, he's such a credible attack dog. He really, he's frightening.

PAT: It's the hair plugs, I think.

GLENN: Is that what it is?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Hair plugs for men?

PAT: They're scary.

GLENN: Yeah. Let's see. What is the the third change is a return to the backdrops for Obama and aides considered so effective during the presidential bid.

You've got to be kidding me! You've got to be kidding me! Their third plan is a backdrop. The image of Obama standing in the diplomatic room surrounded by men in dark suits will be replaced with a more relaxed president in crowds. Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Can we go find the radio or television show where I was hammered by who? The New York Times for saying I'm tired of these politicians using people as a backdrop? Do you remember that show? And I got hammered. How dare he says you should... (mumbling). This is their third step! Scenes of a more relaxed president, the crowd around him. That's their third communications strategy. And finally aides said it was recognized inside "The West Wing" that Obama had strayed from his most successful message of the campaign: That he was going to be an agent of change. Yes. Sounds like a winning strategy. Hmmm, I'm this close to turning now on healthcare. I'm this close to thinking wait a minute, hang on, he's got a backdrop of people behind him. He says he's an outsider. He's for change. If they could just club anyone who dislikes him over the head with a baseball bat, I'd be in! There is a fundamental misunderstanding of what this country is. There is a fundamental understanding. This guy's been knocking on doors for ACORN too long. I don't know who he thinks the American people are but we're not this.

I had dinner last night with one of the richest men in the world who shall remain nameless. It was one of the most depressing dinners I've ever had. I wish I could, I wish I could share it with you. Come on, who wants to get onto the misery boat? Come on, everybody! It was one of the most depressing dinners I've ever had. This isn't a guy that this is not a political guy and I don't I think, I didn't ask him but I think he wouldn't have been voting for anybody that I voted for in the last 20 years. He's just beginning to really wake up. He doesn't really even watch the show. He barely knew who I was. I spent I, like, got there at 7:00. When I looked at my watch, it was 10:30 and we were still sitting around the table and having a discussion. He said to me, it's over, I mean, it's just over. He said, I don't care. This is a Rockefeller, if you will, the Rockefeller of our day. I said my kids are going to be taken care of. I got my money. They are taxing the rich. They are not taxing me. He said, you know, the businesses that I've created, they're going to suffer, the people are going to suffer. He said, but I don't see an out here. Nobody will tell the hard truth. Nobody will say to the American people what's coming and what has to happen. And what has to happen is tax cuts and spending cuts. Even Reagan, as he pointed out, didn't do that. They don't talk to you about that. They won't talk to you about spending cuts. He said we have massive issues. He thinks maybe we have a year. My deep throat says same thing. My gut tells me same thing. We must, must, must prepare ourselves and immerse ourselves in things that are real. I asked him, I said, so, you know, how do you preserve any kind of wealth? He said, I don't know. I've been trying to figure that one out. I said, well, what does the average person do? I don't know. I'm trying to figure that one out. I said, well, my suggestion has been that people should, like June in 1935. He looked at me across the table and said, I think you're right. Education and putting yourself in a position to where you are not dependent on anyone. The world's about to change, gang, world's about to change and it could go one of two ways. We have to unite and be a positive force.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?
