Obama's ACORN lie exposed

GLENN: So Barack Obama has told us time and time again that he has nothing to do with ACORN. In fact, do we have the speech that he gave or when he was asking in the press conference? During the election they asked him, what's your relationship with ACORN? And he said, look, I only did one thing. I was an attorney on a case. Do you remember this?

PAT: Yeah. He said it's very it's very straightforward.

GLENN: Very straightforward.

PAT: "I was an attorney with them on one case clear back when I was, I don't know, like an infant or something. I was barely even born."

GLENN: Do we have the audio?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Look for the audio.

PAT: I'd have to look.

GLENN: So we have the audio of him and we'll play it for you in a second. And then he was on with George Stephanopoulos and he you know, George Stephanopoulos said, you know, what's the deal with ACORN? Are you aware of this? And he said, I don't pay any attention to that stuff. Now we have some video of the president of the United States, verification of one of the most blatant lies I've ever seen where he looks right into the camera and tells you, "I was just, I did some attorney work for them, that's it." This now is apparently video from during the campaign where he was meeting with who we assume were ACORN officials because he's referring to ACORN as "You," and here's how he describes his relationship with ACORN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: 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.

PAT: On that, that sounds a lot like I worked with them on one issue.

GLENN: Doesn't it?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You don't even have to call me. I'll call you. I'll call you. We talked, I think it was last summer I said, warning, ACORN is going to break up and break up into several pieces. Stu, can you give me the names, please, of all of the different pieces that they are breaking up into now? They are broken up now in Massachusetts, they have broken up in California. The next one I understand is supposed to be Texas, but they are breaking up and changing names. This is what progressives always do. They change names. They don't go away.

Here are the names and the states that they are changing in.

STU: New York is now changing to New York Communities For Change.

GLENN: Mmm.

STU: Doesn't that just seem so wonderful?

GLENN: Oh, yes.

PAT: I feel like the change word was the theme of somebody's campaign at some point. Meanwhile the Massachusetts branch of ACORN has been named New England United for Justice.

GLENN: Mmm.

STU: Does that feel good?

PAT: Justice always feels good.

GLENN: Just know in New England United for Justice calls you, it's ACORN. Nothing is changing except the name, and they're dismantling their national membership, their national membership. That's it.

PAT: But that's all?

GLENN: But that's it.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: But that's it. So you got that going for you. And you've got the president of the United States claiming that he knows nothing about it. That's clearly untrue. It's clearly untrue and clearly a blatant lie.

STU: And there's such an interesting part of the media here where you have and the other one was the California one, by the way, Alliance for California's Community Empowerment. All these names are changing. The national organization of a big news story over the past year is dissolving because of, you know, all of the corruption that's been inside of it, and you have at the same time, it's from a congressman, right, who uncovered this video, right? Is it Darrell Issa?

GLENN: Yeah, Darrell Issa.

STU: So you have a congressman that uncovers video of a president lying about that story, yet it's still invisible in the media.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you this: How is it possible that this is invisible? How is it possible that this is invisible? Major organization, center of controversy for years dissolving, going away, same time president is exposed as a liar. This is not a small lie. This isn't trivial. This is, I have nothing to do with them, I don't really even know to, "I'm going to call you guys. I've been involved with you every step of the way. Every bit of your campaigning in Illinois, I'm with you." How is this not a lead story everywhere in America? When you think that the news is giving you the truth, think again. How is it possible if truth is what you're really looking for? How is it possible that Van Jones is now going around to schools and talking to schools? Where is that? I thought everybody was upset that he had to be driven out of politics because he was a 9/11 Truther, which was the least of my worries. The guy is a communist revolutionary. He had to be driven out of schools, but now he can go back into schools. He had to be driven out of the White House but now he can stand shoulder to shoulder with Democratic senators. How's that working? There's no intellectual honesty at all in the media. I wonder what's going to be said now about Nancy Pelosi? We have the statement from Nancy Pelosi. We'll give that to you in a second. And now we have the correction from Nancy Pelosi. Now we have Nancy Pelosi coming out and saying, oh, well, you know what? Okay, they were lying... but now that there are, there's actual evidence, now that the CIA has released evidence that she was briefed, what is she going to say now?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
