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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
