Glenn Beck: Barack Obama's Foundation

Barack Obama has said that he's an ardent free market supporter:

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Contrary to the claims of some of my critics, I am an ardent believer in the free market —

(END VIDEO CLIP)

He mocks those that call him a socialist. Just last week, in an interview, lovingly — almost reverently — conducted by CBS's Harry Smith, he said that people couldn't back up the "notion" that he's a socialist:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: That's not the vast majority of Americans.

The truth is some of these comments when you actually ask, well this is based on what? This notion that Obama's a socialist, for example, nobody can really give you a good answer.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

I'm sure he's right. No doubt there really is nothing to lead one to believe that Barack Obama might have any socialist or Marxist tendencies. Certainly, the mainstream media hasn't found a shred of evidence.

But I want to look at this in a different way, because the next argument will be: Well OK, so what if he is? Well, this is the man who says he's going to fundamentally transform America. He signs bills into law that no one has read.

Nancy Pelosi says we have to pass it to find out what's in it. And on Wednesday, we'll take a look at the specifics in this bill. They've passed it against our will; now we'll show you what's in it.

We know that our country needs to be restored; much of it is broken. When you have something of real value, you need to be careful about who you're hiring: Are they going to remodel, restore or tear down? What kind of contractor have we hired? Let's look at him and his political structure.

The first thing we have to check is the foundation. So, let's start with his parents. First of all, as President Obama would say, "let me be clear," I want you to know that I'm by no means attacking his family. In fact, I think after five minutes, you will feel like I now do: Really sorry for little Barack Obama — the boy, not the man — because of the tragedy of parents that seemingly placed radical politics over everything, including this cute little boy.

I am not one to talk. I grew up with a dad who worked all the time. I work all the time. A lot of us to this; we work long hours to support our families. But how many of us have been abandoned not by just one parent, but eventually both? So brace yourself as I introduce you to his tragic childhood.

Barack Obama, Sr., was a committed communist. And while he was only in Barack, Jr.'s life only until the age of two, his economic policies have a familiar ring. As a Harvard-educated economist and Nairobi bureaucrat, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., advised the pro-Western Kenyan government to "redistribute" income through higher taxes. He wrote about his distrust of a capitalist system while quoting Marx. When Barack, Jr., was two, his father left for good to seek his Harvard education, hardly ever returning to visit.

Of his mother, Obama said she was "the dominant figure in my formative years.... The values she taught me continue to be my touchstone when it comes to how I go about the world of politics." Stanley Ann Dunham was described by a friend as "a fellow traveler.... We were liberals before we knew what liberals were."

She may have been a practitioner of "critical theory" — Marx to the extreme. She was a supporter of Adlai Stevenson, the former Illinois governor and presidential candidate. During the late 1950s, Stevenson campaigned on an aggressive liberal agenda he dubbed the "New America." Dunham later left Hawaii to travel to Indonesia for a second time, later moving on to Pakistan. She too, left Barack, back in Hawaii with her parents.

Obama has portrayed his mother's parents as conservative Methodist and Baptists from Kansas. There's a problem with that. At some point they changed, because when they lived in Washington State, his mother's parents were members of the East Shore Unitarian Church, a left-leaning congregation in Bellevue, near Seattle.

The Chicago Tribune mentions a description of the Dunhams' chosen church as "The Little Red Church on the Hill." According to the church's own Web site, that name came from the "well-publicized debates and forums on such controversial subjects as the admission of 'Red China' to the United Nations." John Stenhouse, a local communist and former chairman of the Mercer Island School Board, once served as church president, possibly contributing to the "Red" label.

So to recap Barack Obama's childhood and formative years: His dad leaves him; his mom also, left him. His grandparents were called upon to continue to raise him throughout his high school years. I'm sure like most of us, Barack Obama has tender feelings for his grandparents and they may well have been fantastic people. But we're trying to discover who Barack Obama is, by looking into his foundation.

Obama's grandfather recognized that Barack had been abandoned by his mom and dad and Barack, according to his own book, was struggling with his racial identity. So, grandpa happened to know a poet living in Hawaii, who was a strong black male influence, who could mentor his grandson. And what happened? Who was this strong figure — this mentor — during his impressionable teen years? Obama only identified him as "Frank" in his memoir. It took some time, but a New Zealand researcher/blogger finally did uncover and publish that his "mentor" was indeed: Frank Marshall Davis, black poet and communist with an FBI file.

So, nothing to see here, right? Just move along. No wonder the mainstream media hasn't given an ounce of credibility to any claims of socialism. Amazingly, it would seem that Obama didn't have much opportunity to become anything but a radical, based on everyone in his life to this point.

Then Barack Obama went to college. Here's how he described the company he kept in school:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: To avoid being mistaken as such a sellout, I chose my friends carefully: The more politically active black students; the foreign students; the Chicanos; the Marxist professors...

(END AUDIO CLIP)

After college he joined a church born of Marxism; one that taught radical liberation theology and which was led by a Marxist pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Obama didn't just join, he stayed for 20 years. He and Michelle were married by Wright, his children were baptized by him. We've obviously hashed and rehashed all the Jeremiah Wright rantings, so we won't do that again here. But what no one has touched on is his new spiritual adviser, whom we'll get into later.

OK, that's his past. There must be all kinds of evidence that he's changed dramatically since his upbringing, right? After all, we started this segment with him proclaiming that he is an "ardent free market believer," so surely there's plenty of evidence that he fully supports businesses that drive the economy and employ millions of Americans by bringing in large profits?

As an ardent free market president, we'd expect to see him singing the praises of successful capitalists, celebrating titans of industry and generally encouraging the principles that have made America the beacon of opportunity for hundreds of millions of immigrants over the last 200 years.

The discussion of "is he a socialist," is as meaningless as the argument we had 10 years ago: Did he do that with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky? America knew the answer then and we know the answer now. The question we must ask is: Does it matter?

When you build a house, the first thing you do is pour a foundation and we've shown the foundation that was poured.

Legal scholar and famed criminal defense attorney Alan Dershowitz has a message for partisans dividing America: "A plague on both your houses." He voted for Hillary Clinton. He endorsed Joe Biden. He's a man who is basically the Forrest Gump of American judicial history.

Look up a big court case over the past few decades, and you'll probably see him standing in the background. He's represented notorious clients like Mike Tyson, Patty Hearst, Harry Reems, Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, and yes, Donald Trump. It's made him a target for both the left and right.

Alan also describes himself as a "civil libertarian," and that's probably why he and Glenn Beck get along despite their opposing political views. His story is like a history lesson, spanning half a century, and it just might be the key to bridging the political divide.

On this week's podcast, Alan explained that while he's a strong defender of the Constitution, he's never been a big fan of the Second Amendment. In the past he's called it absurd and outdated, and even today, he admits that he wouldn't have ingrained it into our Constitution if he was a framer. However, with the whole Bill of Rights under attack, he's now fully in defense of our right to bear arms. Because if the Second Amendment changes, any amendment could be next.

"I'm now a supporter of the Second Amendment. I don't want to change it. I don't want to change one word of it, because I'm afraid that if I get to change the Second Amendment, other people will get to change the First Amendment, and the Fifth Amendment," Alan said. "So, I am committed to preserving the Bill of Rights, every single word, every comma, and every space between the words."

Investigative reporter David Steinberg joined the radio program Monday, to explain how a new video may provide enough evidence to begin a FBI investigation into alleged illegal practices by Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar's campaign.

In the video, which was produced and released by Project Veritas, residents of Omar's community describe campaign teams that not only conduct illegal ballot harvesting practices but also pay people for their blank absentee ballots.

Steinberg told Glenn that, if these charges prove to be true, the federal government could bypass Omar's friend and protector, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison. Could 2020 be the beginning of the end for Omar's political career?

Mike Fratantuono is the manager of Sunset Restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland. He wrote in the Washington Post's COVID-19 series about the recent, heartbreaking loss of his business, a restaurant that has been in his family for "four generations and counting."

"I know this virus is real, okay? It's real and it's awful. I'm not disputing any of that," Mike wrote. "But our national hysteria is worse. We allowed the virus to take over our economy, our small businesses, our schools, our social lives, our whole quality of life. We surrendered, and now everything is infected."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck reacted to Mike's letter, which he shared in full, adding his hope that those in government are ultimately held responsible for what he called the biggest theft of the Western world.

"This is the biggest theft of, not only money, but of heritage and of hope," Glenn said. "The United States government and many of the states are responsible for this, not you. And hopefully someday soon, we'll return to some semblance of sanity, and those responsible for this theft, this rape of the Western world, will be held responsible."

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.
