Obama: White CEO's hate inner city kids?

GLENN: I'm still reeling over this BP thing. Boy, there's something wrong. The President now says that this is comparable to 9/11. Is it, now? This is comparable to 9/11? I've heard a lot of people talk about this and they're saying, well, I'm very it's really what are you offended by? All the President is saying is soon you're going to do the things that are the equivalent of taking off your shoes and your belt at the airport, the Overton Window, if you will, has been moved, and he's warning you that massive regulation is coming. And it's an awful lot like 9/11, it is. Do you remember, right after 9/11, everybody was told, don't, don't you dare say, oh, Muslims are alike. Don't you dare say that, and the President immediately went to a mosque and took his shoes off. Do you remember? That's what George Bush did. That's what all of us had to do. This President can just say that all CEOs of oil companies are alike. They're all evil and he's not going to go to their office and take his shoes off. He doesn't want to even find out any information. We were told to investigate. We were told talk to Muslims and we were all, like I remember watching TV going, I'd like to see one come on television and clearly denounce. Took a while. We found them. And it is true, not all Muslims are terrorists, not all terrorists are Muslims. It's true. But for some reason our Government and the media insisted that we know that, that you don't dare put them all in the same category. Have you heard anybody in the media or the President and the administration, anybody in Congress coming out and saying, Hey, stop vandalizing gas stations that say BP? Not all gas station owners, not all gas station attendants, not all gas station people, you know, blew the oil in the gulf? They weren't there?

PAT: In fact, none of them did.

GLENN: Well, can you say that?

PAT: Uh huh, yeah, I can.

GLENN: Well,

PAT: Not one. No gas station owner dumped oil into the gulf, none, not one.

GLENN: I haven't verified that fact yet. I'm going to stay neutral on that fact.

PAT: All right.

GLENN: Just because I want to make sure that I'm not classifying anybody into a category.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Without the facts.

PAT: Well,

GLENN: Now, I know those facts we don't have to actually do that anymore. We apparently don't have to look for facts before we stereotype people.

PAT: We can easily jump to conclusions. It's fine.

GLENN: I have enough facts.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: To be able to jump to conclusions 4

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: So and I'm trying to figure out now, we spoke on Friday. I want to play the audio. Something massive has changed in President Obama's head. Something massive has happened. I don't know what, but something big has happened. It only took two days. Now, a cynical man, not me, a cynical man, would say that he said that he didn't need to meet with this guy and two days later he said he did. Maybe it's because he wasn't on prompt err and that's a bad thing and he said something that made George Soros say, Knock it off, bad boy. Maybe he saw how that was going to play in the press and so now he's going to have a beer summit. Of course, someone even more cynical might say he's not going to meet with him and ask him any questions. The President already has made up his mind because he's the messiah and so all he's going to do is call him on the carpet, so it's going to the BP executive's going to be a whipping boy, but that's very cynical.

I think, instead, some new piece of information has come to the President, because this is what he said last week.

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

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 action.

GLENN: Okay. So, he doesn't need to speak because he's a typical may I ask the President this question, a question that really somebody in the press should ask, Mr. President, just could you outline, because I've missed it on your resume. Could you outline your vast oil company executive experience? Could you just outline that, because I know well, all the oil rigs that are, you know, right there in Lake Michigan, I'm sure growing up in Chicago, you have a ton of experience with oil executives. I don't even know if oil executives even live in the greater Chicago area, which I could have given him the benefit of the doubt if it was known to have suburbs filled and populated with oil executives, I know the President would have had a lot of experience. Of course, I don't know if the average American would have counted him standing in the front lawn with a bunch of ACORN workers shouting at those oil executives from their front yard as experience of really talking to them, but a community organizer might do that. What is it exactly in your vast experience in oil or is it that these are all oil executives? I'm sorry. We're stereotyping here. I'm just trying to get my arms around what we can stereotype with no information and what we can't stereotype with information. I'm just trying to help me out, if you will, Mr. President.

I'm waiting for the red phone at FOX to ring right now. It's not over here. I'm so used to just waiting for the phone to ring. What is it about that? Now, is it oil, because you don't have any oil experience. Did you work at a gas station, because maybe you could come out and say, Hey, all gas station owners are alike in your experience, if you've worked at a gas station, or is it the fact that he's a white executive? Maybe your problem is that he's a white CEO that maybe lives out in the suburbs and doesn't want to pay taxes, you know, for any inner city children. That's such an outrageous right now Huffington Post right now, as they're writing this down, I can't believe Glenn Beck said that. You're right. I shouldn't have said that. Let me just let the President make that accusation.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I really want to emphasize the word responsibility. I think whether you are a white executive living out in the suburbs who doesn't want to pay taxes to inner city children

GLENN: Oh, okay. All right. So, maybe that's the problem. Maybe the problem the President has with the BP executive, that he last week didn't want to meet with because he had all the information he needed, he wasn't interested in words, but this week he's going to meet with him and I'm trying to figure out what changed. Did he find out that not all white executives that live out in the suburbs don't want to pay their taxes to go to inner city children, which I believe is code language, isn't it? Is that code language, Mr. President? I thought we weren't supposed to use code language. A white executive that doesn't want their tax dollars to go to inner city children. Sounds like code language. It sounds like racism. It sounds like stereotyping. It sounds like profiling which I didn't think we were supposed to do. Isn't that your problem in Arizona? Your problem with the Arizona law is you're profiling, they can stop you just for looking Hispanic. That's what you claim, Mr. President, are you profiling this executive, just because he looks like a CEO, because he looks like a white CEO, because he looks like an oil company CEO? I'm not sure what you're profiling, but there seems to be a little profiling going on here. Were you actually born in Arizona and not Hawaii? I'm suddenly interested in the birth certificate because maybe your birth certificate says you were born in Arizona. I've never questioned your birth certificate. Now I'm kind of curious. Maybe you were born one of those evil Arizonian profilers. It's weird, because he doesn't need information. He didn't need the information from Arizona, he didn't meet with them until he got into trouble. He said he wasn't going to he had no room on his schedule for the governor of Arizona. He didn't need to. He already knew. Even though nobody read the law, he already knew! Until he had a change of heart for some reason. Something happened. Now, a cynical man might say it's the same story, the press picked that up and George Soros called and said, I am your puppet master. You shall meet. Oh, okay. He didn't have any of the information when he had the beer summit. He said, I don't have I don't know very few facts, but the police acted stupidly. He didn't have any information and then he had the beer summit. Now, a cynical man might say because people started talking about that and it wasn't going well for his poll numbers, but I know and you know he had a change of heart, there was something else that he discovered and wanted to meet with them. It's weird because right out of the chute he doesn't mind meeting with Ahmadinejad. Nope. No problem. Hum. That's weird, because I've got a lot of information on Ahmadinejad that I would say, I don't know if he's going to tell you the truth. You know, it's kind of like that Kim Jong Il thing. I don't know if evil dictators tell you the truth. No, no. You're wrong. I'm wrong. He's perfectly fine to meet with, without any kind of conditions and he'll shoot straight with us, but because of our lack of really deep oil executive experience, like the President apparently has, he knows that the one you can't trust are those evil CEOs of oil companies. I don't know what his experience told him, but I sure wish somebody would do their job and ask him those questions. Don't you? Wouldn't that be an interesting answer? I would sure like to hear it, just because I'd like more information and I know there's a lot of information out there that's bad for you. Maybe he could give some of that information to the Huffington Post and we could read it there, because that's good information and there's a difference between information. There's good information and bad information and then there's good profiling and bad profiling. We're learning that now. Isn't that great? That equal justice thing, what a crock that is. Glad we're past that.

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.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
