Glenn Beck: Obama sues Arizona

GLENN: You know what? This was amazing. Listen to this. This is Senator Jon Kyl from Arizona. He's talking about a meeting that he had with President Obama about the border. Listen to this.

KYL: I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us. I kicked the rest of the people out. I asked them if they would leave. Sorry. (Laughter). And here's what the president said. The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you‑all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform. In other words, they are pulling it ‑‑

PAT: There it is.

KYL: They don't want to secure the border unless and until it is combined with comprehensive immigration reform.

PAT: People were truly stunned. I don't think that surprised me at all.

GLENN: I don't think I've ever heard a real gasp like that before. That's like a movie gasp.

PAT: Tthe people swallowed their tongues I think at that meeting.

STU: I was listening for the gasp. I didn't know what —

GLENN: Hang on just a second. You know what that is? That's the scene from Frosty the Snowman. Do you remember when he comes alive and all the kids are like, ah, Frosty?

STU: I'm looking up Frosty the Snowman on Amazon.

PAT: Check Frosty and see where we are on Amazon right now.

GLENN: It's not the time of the year. I'm not recommending anything

STU: No, no, you did. You already did it.

PAT: You already did it.

STU: Can't get out of it now.

PAT: Too late. The Beck Bump or the Stu Stampede.

STU: Stampede, I love it.

GLENN: I wholly endorse your buying of...

PAT: All right. So where is Frosty right now? Frosty the Snowman.

STU: I'm looking it up.

GLENN: No, I don't really care where Frosty the Snowman — it was a quick reference.

STU: It didn't seem like it. It is number 4,870.

PAT: Okay. If that doesn't move, the Beck Bump is over and Media Matters runs that as their lead story: Beck Bump ends; Frosty doesn't move.

GLENN: They will write a whole story about how I just believe that Frosty, because he's white, is the story of America.

PAT: Uh‑huh, uh‑huh.

GLENN: All right. —

PAT: Anyway, the Jon Kyl thing, is anybody surprised?

GLENN: I'm not.

PAT: I'm not shocked at all he said that.

STU: What is it again? What exactly happened? Because I was listening for the gasp and I wasn't actually paying attention to what he was saying.

GLENN: Play it again.

KYL: I met with the president in the Oval Office, just the two of us. I kicked the rest of the people out.

GLENN: Okay, he's met with the president.

KYL: I asked them if they would leave.

GLENN: Just the two of them.

KYL: Here's what the president said. The problem is, he said, if we secure the border, then you all won't have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.

PAT: Okay. Did you get that? So they are not going to secure the border because then you may not vote for comprehensive immigration reform because the border's already secure. Well, wait a minute. Close the border and then we'll worry about dealing with all the rest of the madness and that's what America has always wanted. But you know what? I mean, they gasp. George Bush was doing the exact same thing. This is exactly the Bush policy, too, the Bush doctrine on this. It's the same thing.

GLENN: Excuse me? Excuse me?

PAT: Bush, Clinton, H. W., probably back to Reagan.

GLENN: Keep going?

PAT: All right. Let's try Carter, let's go to Ford and Nixon.

GLENN: You can go all the way back. You can also go across.

PAT: LBJ.

GLENN: You can go to John McCain. How about Senator Kyl? Where has he been — where has he stood on this?

PAT: Yeah, I —

GLENN: You don't know, do you?

PAT: I mean, he's been strong —

GLENN: Frosty the Snowman would know.

PAT: He's been strong at times but he's — I remember having some problems four years ago with Kyl but I don't remember what they are now. He may have supported the comprehensive immigration reform. We should look into that.

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
