Valerie Jarrett - Tea Party Extreme

Obama's 'BFF' Likes Idea of Simple Booklets to Educate 'Typical' Tea Partiers

GLENN: We have some new audio now from Scott Baker at Breitbart.TV who, this is amazing stuff. This is amazing stuff. Valerie Jarrett now, the best friend of Barack and Michelle Obama, she is, she's up in, I think is it, is it Harvard? She's up at Harvard, I think, and she was asked a question about the tea party. And I haven't heard this yet but apparently it's a little hard to understand. So here it is.

PAT: Yeah, it's a little convoluted because the guy's asking her a question and we join it with him asking a question of the tea partiers, all right?

GLENN: So basically what she's getting ready to say, here is, tea parties aren't so bright.

VOICE: Whereas a typical person including those in the tea party, exactly, could understand the basics of it because I feel that many of them simply don't. Do you think that is an analogy?

PAT: You need a simple, like a simple pamphlet to

GLENN: You need a little book because tea party people are too stupid to understand. So you need a little book.

PAT: Like with pictures and stuff?


PAT: Something really easy?

JARRETT: I think it's an excellent analogy. I think probably hope and change were so catchy because it was really very simple and it was something everyone understood the definition. That's why death panels were so catchy. Everybody didn't know what it meant but they knew it was really bad. And so I think part of our challenge is to find a very simple way of communicating. And it's hard to even understand what people are talking about. When I first got there they kept talking about cloture and reconciliation. And people don't know what that's talking about. They know what a preexisting condition is when they've been dropped from their insurance company.

PAT: And then she's go the some thoughts on tea parties.

JARRETT: Even if they are in favor of, let's say, a different form of healthcare, insurance to perform, fine. But what's happening is it's an anti government. I mean, that's the tea party. They really are trying to rebel against government at all. I think that that's

PAT: What? No, they're not.

JARRETT: Again it's an extreme.

PAT: No, they're not.

JARRETT: It's a lot easier to scare people and to get them angry when they are scared and they are already uncertain and I think that's what the tea party is trying to capture. There's nobody more self critical than President Obama.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Don't play this one yet. Okay. Let's just digest what she just said. Tea party people are stupid and so we should have a little booklet just to explain things. That's why hope and change work so well. Well, but wait, it didn't work on the tea partygoers. Do you have to be do you have to talk down to them even below the hope and change? Because the tea partygoers were saying that doesn't mean anything. What does that mean? Give us specifics!

STU: Maybe because four letters is too long of a word for tea party members.

GLENN: Maybe that's what it is. Okay. So that's why she says hope and change work so well, but we need a little booklet because tea partygoers are stupid. Not only are they stupid, they are all anti government. I have to tell you something. I've never met so many people that are pro government as defined by our Constitution. I don't, I don't know a single tea partygoer that hates government as defined by our Constitution. We just don't think it's been defined, you know, been run like our Constitution says for over a hundred years. So yes, we're anti big government, but we're not anarchists. Now granted Stu is working Pat and Stu and everybody's working on a few words with me.

PAT: We've got to get a little picture book.


PAT: This is granite, this is granted.

GLENN: Shut up! Granted.

STU: Nice.

GLENN: Granted, that's the second time I've corrected it without any help.

PAT: Today, that's right.

GLENN: Make me so paranoid. Between Saturday Night Live and the chalkboard.

PAT: And us.

GLENN: And us, I got off the stage. What was the first thing I said to you, Pat?

PAT: Did I spell anything wrong?

GLENN: When I got off the stage at CPAC, did I spell anything wrong, get anything wrong? Because I knew I was dead if I did. And what did Pat say? "Yeah, but only one word." Okay. So anyway, what was I saying? Okay. So the tea partygoers are stupid. You need a little booklet. But then they also hate government. Now, her main content here is that you don't need to point things out to Barack Obama. He doesn't need people to correct him and yell at him and tell him what he's doing wrong. Listen to this.

JARRETT: The burden of being so bright is that he sees his error immediately. The president's staff and the president have been very actively involved in working with both the House and the Senate to try to get healthcare reform delivered. But ultimately the party, the people that deliver and vote on a bill are congress. If the president could do it unilaterally, he would have done it a long time ago, I can assure you of that.

PAT: Oh, I believe that.

GLENN: I believe that.

PAT: Oh, she got that one right!

GLENN: Go back to the beginning of that clip. Because she says there's no one more self critical than President Obama. The burden of being so bright is that he sees his errors immediately.

PAT: Immediately!

GLENN: The burden of being so bright.

PAT: I have example after example

GLENN: After example.

PAT: of that being the case, too. Remember when he

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Up with left to go. Alaska and Hawaii I was not allowed to go to.

PAT: Wait a minute. He didn't seem immediate.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma. They end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs if they just gave, you gave them treatment early and they got some treatment and a breathalyzer or inhalator, not a breathalyzer.

PAT: An inhalating breathalyzer. I mean, there you go. He is so bright, he catches those things.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

PAT: He is on it.

GLENN: I know. Now, let me go back to the one that he hasn't caught and this is where he is this is where he's so bright, his problem is he thinks he's so bright that he thinks he can get away with anything. He has said in the past, when he said in the past about ACORN is he just, he doesn't involve himself with them at all, he doesn't know anything about them. He did one court case with the justice department with ACORN. That's it.

Watch this videotape on television tonight. That's it. That's all he's done. That's all he's done.

PAT: Yeah, I have that if you want the

GLENN: Oh, you have it? Play it, play it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: My relationship to ACORN is pretty straightforward. When, it's probably 13 years ago when I was still practicing law, I represented ACORN, and my partner in that representation was the U.S. justice department.

GLENN: Good.

PAT: Now, he's so bright.

GLENN: Yeah. Now wait a minute, wait a minute. Play it again.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Can you hear the cameras? Because they are asking him, this is on the campaign trail: What is your relationship with ACORN? It's very straightforward.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: My relationship to ACORN is pretty straightforward. When it's probably 13 years ago when I was still practicing law, I represented ACORN, and my partner in

GLENN: Okay, stop. So he was practicing law when he did a case for ACORN. That was his relationship. When he was still practicing law. This is when he was running for congress I'm sorry, for president. He was in the Senate. Now, here's newly found video, the president talking to ACORN behind closed doors.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And you know you've got a friend in me, and I definitely welcome ACORN's input. You don't have to ask me about that. I'm going to call you even if you didn't ask me.

When I ran Project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, you know, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it. Once I was elected, there wasn't a campaign that ACORN worked on down in Springfield that I wasn't right there with you. Since I've been in the United States Senate, I've been always a partner with ACORN as well. I've been fighting with ACORN, alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career.

GLENN: There you go. By the way, did you catch at the beginning? You don't have to call me; I will call you. I thought his relationship was pretty straightforward. I thought it was just that one case 13 years ago.

PAT: Long time ago. Barely knows who they are.

GLENN: This is why when Valerie Jarrett says, "He's just so smart, that's the thing."

JARRETT: Nobody more self critical than President Obama. Part of the burden of being so bright is that he sees his error immediately.

GLENN: Part of the burden of being so bright is that he sees the error of his ways immediately. Part of the burden.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's the problem. These guys think they're so bright, they think they can get away with anything, and they think that you need a little booklet to put it together! No. No, I don't think we do.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
