Glenn Beck: Obama vs. Capitalism

GLENN: I want to get right to talk about the president who has now summoned, who has now summoned the BP President and CEO. I'm sorry. Wasn't it just yesterday or the day before when we were talking about what the president had said about the president of BP who he has not yet spoken to, he said this.

REPORTER: Have you spoken directly to Tony Hayward, the CEO of BP?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I have not spoken to him directly and here's the reason. Because my experience is when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he's going to say all the right things to me. I'm not interested in words. I'm interested in actions.

GLENN: Okay. Let me ask you this. What is that guy like, the BP CEO? What is that? I'm trying to figure that one out. Can you imagine — I said this to Bill O'Reilly last night. Can you imagine if I would say, if we were — if I had some sort of a, you know, rif with Al Sharpton? "Have you spoken to Al Sharpton directly one on one?" And I said, "Let me tell you, my experience tells me speaking to people like Al Sharpton does no good; he's going to say what he's going to say." What do you mean people like Al Sharpton?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: What do you mean people like Al Sharpton? What do you mean people like the CEO of BP? Is it English? Is that what it is? Because we know he has a problem with the English. We know he has a problem with the English. Didn't his wife write a dissertation when she was in college, some sort of a — it may have been her final —

PAT: Her thesis at Princeton.

GLENN: It may have been. I think it was how racist the English were. So we know he has a problem only — just not based on that. Based on the fact that he gave and boxed up and sent back a gift from England, the bust of Churchill. Now, I don't know. I've never heard of anything like that.

PAT: It's a weird move because they gave it to us and they said, no, no, we gave that to you; keep it.

GLENN: No, it was for 9/11.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They gave it to us as a — it's like boxing up the Resolute desk and saying, yeah, you know, this desk is kind of old and, you know, we don't really have a place for it here. It was a gift from the people of England. Have you — may I ask the president, have you ever received a gift from a relative that you — you know, like a little Hummel figure that you are like, oh, this is... oh, man.

STU: It's like in a Christmas story when the aunt comes over, you wear the pink bunny suit.

GLENN: You wear it. That's what you do. And you say thank you. If you want to insult them, you don't wear the pink bunny suit.

PAT: I'm not wearing the pink bunny —

STU: No, you are wearing the pink bunny suit when they come over.

PAT: I'm not wearing it.

STU: Because that's what mom says to do.

PAT: I'm telling Mom no.

GLENN: Barack Obama, is that you? Okay. So maybe it's just that he doesn't like the English and he has a problem with the English. Let me tell you something. When you just talk about people, you know, like,


'the English, well, they are going to say whatever they want." Okay, so that means all Englishmen are liars and they don't care about anything. Or is it that he — do we know what color this guy is? Is he white?

STU: He is white.

GLENN: So is it that you talk to people like that, all these white people and they will say whatever? Is that what it is? Is it capitalist? This is the one I think it is.

PAT: Me, too.

GLENN: You talk to these capitalists and they will say whatever they want. They will say whatever they think I need to hear. I'm interested in action because I'm a revolutionary... oops, did I say that? Oop, maybe I said too much.

STU: I don't remember that quote from Obama, but —

GLENN: No, you will. You will hear it.

Okay. So which is it?

STU: Could it be rich people? Maybe it's rich people.

GLENN: It could be rich people.

STU: Maybe it's CEOs.

GLENN: Well, CEO is a capitalist really.

STU: Yes, but a certain type of capitalist.

PAT: Head of a major corporation, uh huh.

STU: Could be that.

GLENN: Yeah, could be.

STU: Could be he has curly hair.

PAT: People who remind him of his grandmother.

GLENN: Could be — pardon me?

PAT: It might be people who remind him of, you know, typical —

GLENN: Oh, typical white people.

PAT: You know?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: All right.

STU: You know what they are going to say.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: If she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into —

STU: Of course, it's been bred in.

GLENN: Bred into her. She's a typical white person.

PAT: It's bred into you. You can't help it.

GLENN: No, I know.

PAT: That's why he shouldn't bother with calling the CEO of BP because there's a reaction to a president that's been bred into him and he knows.

GLENN: What a very good point, Pat, very good point. Using his own words to describe his grandmother.

PAT: Well —

GLENN: That when you see a typical person like the president of BP, he has a reaction.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, to those people that has been bred into him. Okay. All right. Now, that actually kind of works.

PAT: It does.

GLENN: If you understand who his parents were and who his grandparents were because they are not really the typical white people. His mother, his mother wasn't. His mother was a revolutionary. His father wasn't. A revolutionary. His grandparents, they went to the Communist Little Red Church just outside of Seattle. They had communist friends. So it's almost like Marxism has been bred into him. Like what — play the audio again because I want to make sure I use just his — the way he speaks.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person who — you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into —

GLENN: Let me get this right because I want to craft this exactly right.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: So Barack Obama, he's just the typical Marxist that, when he sees a CEO of like an oil company that he doesn't know.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: He just has a reaction because it's been bred into him.

PAT: Mmm hmmm. Hmmm.

GLENN: I'm comfortable with that.

STU: I'm sure the media would be comfortable with you saying that.

GLENN: Sure. Of course they would. And they would say that I could write that in a book.

Well, let me just, let me start where we, you know — finish where we started and that is this. It's good that the president of the United States who has been looking for whose ass to kick, quoting the president —

STU: Quote/unquote.

GLENN: Has a boot on his throat.

STU: Boot on his throat, yeah.

GLENN: Whose ass to kick and has not wanted to meet with the president of BP or the CEO because he knows people like that will only tell him what he wants to hear and he's not interested in that. He's only interested in action, it's good to see now that he has summoned that CEO and president to the White House. Not invited them, not said, hey, can we get together, not had a beer conference. No, no, no. Summoned them. Almost the way Napoleon used to, or a... chancellor.

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
