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?

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
