Glenn Beck: Obama's principles not matching policy

GLENN: Our new Supreme Court, our new Supreme Court pick has been named as a progressive, Biden's chief of staff Ron Klain told reporters yesterday, she is clearly a legal progressive. She's someone whose scholarship has won praise from both the progressive side and those on the conservative side... of the progressive movement. She comes from the progressive side of the spectrum. There's no mystery to the fact that she is, as I said, more a progressive than not. Oh, good.

Let me ask you this question: Here's somebody who has known Barack Obama, taught in Chicago, comes from the Chicago clan, comes from the same group of people. Now, we are told that this group of people loved the fact that they are going to close down Guantanamo, that you can't hold people without a trial. In fact, we are told that their principles are so strong on this, that they are so adamant about this that they will close down Guantanamo, move people to a Chicago suburb, to a prison there so we no longer have Guantanamo, and we will try some of these people not in the court of justice from the military. No, no, no. We will try them in New York City because everyone deserves a fair trial. That is their principle. If that is the principle, why would Barack Obama nominate somebody who said way, way, way back, about 90 days ago, when she was the nominee for solicitor general that someone suspected, someone suspected of helping finance Al Qaeda should be subject to battlefield law, which is indefinite detention without trial. Her words, not mine. Even if captured in a place other than a physical battle zone.

Hang on just a second. Your principles of this administration is that we don't hold people indefinitely, that everyone deserves a fair trial, even those caught on the battlefield. And yet our new Supreme Court justice nominee said just as she was being cleared for solicitor general, she said that if you are suspected, suspected of financing Al Qaeda that you could be held indefinitely without trial. Help me out on that one.

I believe we have a Supreme Court nominee, I believe we have a president of the United States, I believe we have a senator in Joe Lieberman, I believe we have a lot of people that are now going on guilty, of American citizens, guilty until proven innocent. This is one of our chief building blocks. Why did I come out and say last week "We must read him his Miranda rights; he's an American citizen"? Why did I say that? Why did Jon Stewart and everybody else on the left, Rachel Maddow, come out and say Glenn Beck seems to be the sane one on this issue, but no one is questioning. Where is the outrage on the other side?

Okay, so they pointed out that I was sane on this, but where are they pointing out what is happening? Let's not make this about Al Qaeda. Let's make this about — because it's really about terror really, isn't it? Al Qaeda's just the chief terror organization. Or is it? Remember this is an administration that doesn't even believe that we're in war. When they came, we're not even at war. We are in the, what is it, the —

PAT: It was the Overseas Contingency Operation.

GLENN: Overseas contingency operation, that's right. Overseas contingency, we're not even at war. They come out and they defend: Let's not jump to conclusions. Fort Hood: Let's not jump to conclusions. So now they are pushing for if you finance, if you are suspected of financing, held indefinitely without trial. A citizen.

Now let's see who they do think they are at war with. Well, we know that as soon as Barack Obama got in, Missouri had a study, a report that came out that said you could be in a possible terrorist organization if you are a — you have a snake flag, if you have a Ron Paul bumper sticker.

PAT: Pro life.

GLENN: If you are pro life. You may be part of a movement of some sort of a terrorist organization.

GLENN: Now, let me ask you this. Let's say you write a check to the tea party and Timothy McVeigh somehow mysteriously comes back from the grave and blows a building up, and on his desk is, "Hey, I want to go to that tea party thing next week." Do you really believe that someone in our government wouldn't try to make the case, do you really believe that the media wouldn't make the case for them that the tea party movement is now a terrorist organization because some whack job out of their mind blew up a building? What if you wrote a check? Could you be taken off the streets? Could you be held indefinitely without trial? Nobody wants to think these things. We have gone from a country where we all said to each other, "Okay, I don't like the PATRIOT Act, but we need something." Okay, all right, but we have Sunsets in it. We've gone from an administration who says they are against the PATRIOT Act; the first thing they are going to do is shut down Guantanamo, reverse the PATRIOT Act, make sure — Barack Obama campaigned: We no longer will just scoop people up off the streets because they're Muslim. We never have! Now, those are their principles. We've seen their principles in action when it comes to terror overseas, part of the contingency operation. We see how seriously they take that. They don't. So why are all of their legal actions going so far beyond the PATRIOT Act which, by the way, they didn't repeal; they took the Sunsets out of. Why? I don't have an answer, but until things make sense, stand guard, America. Stand guard. This is your new Supreme Court justice nominee who said this about 90 days ago. You have an effort in congress to take away the rights of citizens if suspected. If suspected. Excuse me. Innocent until proven guilty. You are on the battlefield? I got all the information I need. You're a citizen in the United States and now we're not talking about holding a gun or anything else. We're talking about writing a check. I don't think so.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
