Glenn Beck: Obama 'most radical president ever'



Dr. Richard L. Rubinstein, Yale fellow, "Distinguished Professor of the Year", and Harvard Phd.

GLENN: We want to take you back to the Yale professor. This is the — what do they call it, the distinguished professor of the year

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Cub Scout of the month, or I don't know what he was, but a distinguished professor at Yale. He was delivering a lecture and then pulled off to the side and asked, hey, can we have a conversation about that one again?

PAT: He said some interesting things about Obama. Would you mind expanding on that a little bit?

GLENN: Now, I'm sure this man is going to be discredited by the end of the day.

PAT: He is clearly senile.

GLENN: He is so old. How old does he look? He looks like 60.

PAT: I don't know. He's probably 173, 174, early 170s.

GLENN: Yeah, he is a very young looking 174. Distinguished professor at Yale. Here's what he said about Barack Obama.

RUBENSTEIN: Is really a revolutionary. That doesn't mean he's looking to stir up violent trouble but I believe he is trying to transform both the American political system and economic system and America's relationship to the world. I also believe that he has decided that America must make its peace with Iran. I believe that he is a man who is highly intelligent, knows what he's doing and in spite of the fact that he has attracted liberal Jewish supporters, some with great wealth. His intention is to correct the historical mistake of the creation of the state of Israel.

GLENN: That's kind of a big deal.

RUBENSTEIN: Given Obama's background, the fact that his family was, on his father's side was Muslim, that his sister is a Muslim, that his half brother is a Muslim, there is no doubt that he heard a great deal about Islam and Israel from them before he took office and though he was not candid about it at first, he has by his decisions and his symbolic actions made it clear where his sympathies are.

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. That's an awful lot to digest here. From a distinguished professor at Yale who will soon be discredited as a crackpot, he has made his intentions clear, which I think are clear! I think any human, any thinking human being can see, agree or disagree, can see where this man stands. They know. He does not stand with Israel. He does not stand with our traditional allies. He is on a different side. Now, that side could be right, could be wrong. That's for you to decide. But it's not the traditional, "Hey, this is our traditional enemy and this is our traditional friend. It's not. The guy can't find any reason to sit down and meet with the president of BP, the CEO of BP. They have nothing to talk about. Quote: Guys like that are just going to tell you what you want to hear. But he'll meet with Ahmadinejad with no conditions. I mean, how's it working out, really, seriously, how's it working out with North Korea? North Korea torpedoes a ship and sinks it. We do nothing. We do nothing. Israel tries to stop a ship from approaching a secure area. Egypt says don't approach. Egypt says you can land at one of our ports, but you are not to go into the Gaza Strip. Land at one of our ports and we will search you. No. So it's not just Israel. It's Egypt as well. That's not reported. And what happens? For the first time the United States comes against Israel. I'm not claiming that Israel is right on everything, although I do believe they are the, they are the victims in this situation, although I'm not one looking for victims. I mean, Israel's a big — you know, they are big boy and big girl. They can take care of themselves. But let's at least stand on the side of our friends, the ones we have more in common with. But now here's somebody in an academic level that is saying he's making himself clear. But he goes even further. Listen.

RUBENSTEIN: — doubt that he would not be unhappy to see the destruction of the State of Israel, as long as he can say that my hands have not shed this blood, which is a phrase from the Bible.

GLENN: Absolutely.

RUBENSTEIN: In addition to that, he has a hostility towards Western Europe, especially to England as characterized by the symbolic action of returning the bust of Winston Churchill to the English, one of his first acts.

PAT: Wow.

RUBENSTEIN: And he has made some interesting symbolic moves with, for example, bowing to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia since King Abdullah is the keeper of the two holiest shrines of Islam, Mecca and Medina, one wonders why he did this.

GLENN: Well, but you have to also bow to Pam Iorio, the mayor of Tampa.

PAT: Yeah, that's just weird.

GLENN: He's got a bowing issue. He just has a bowing issue. He has an issue with flies that land on his face and he has a bowing issue. I don't know, I don't know what either one of them mean.

PAT: It's interesting — you know, he talks about the relationship with England which I think has really been compromised by this president. And he uses the same example that you've brought up many times and that's, we packed up the bust of Churchill that was given to us after 9/11 and sent it right back to them even though they said, no, that was a gift.

GLENN: Is there any — I mean, let's be honest here. Stu, open up the control room mics. Let's brainstorm here for a second. Tell me an honest reason why you would do that to a friend.

PAT: Clashes with the decor.

GLENN: Okay.

PAT: Clashes with the decor.

GLENN: No, you move it into another room.

PAT: Did you see what he replaced it with? He replaced it with a, I think a magazine cover of him

GLENN: No, seriously.

PAT: On the New Yorker. No, he did.

GLENN: No, he did not.

PAT: Yes, he did.

GLENN: No, he did not.

PAT: Yeah, according to, I think it was on the Fox website that he replaced where that used to be or in the general vicinity.

GLENN: What?

PAT: He replaced it with a magazine cover that featured, some Obama facts or something like that.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Yeah, you didn't see that one, huh?

STU: Probably matched the blues and Reds.

GLENN: Let me tell you something. Let me tell you something. The positions of things in the White House, in the Oval Office are historic. Can somebody please find out what the picture is, if you are sitting at the president's desk, it would be to your left, not sharp left but right to the left of the door. Somebody find out what president is hanging there, if there even is a president hanging there. Can somebody get a picture of the current Oval Office configuration and what's hanging on the walls? Everything holds special meaning. For instance, that picture at that place is the traditional spot where the president hangs a portrait of the person that most inspires him. The president that most inspires him. I'll bet you it's Abraham Lincoln.

PAT: For this president, for Obama?

GLENN: For this president. Because Abraham Lincoln was transformative. It should be Woodrow Wilson or FDR.

PAT: Should.

GLENN: But I'll bet you for political purposes it is Abraham Lincoln. It was Abraham Lincoln under Bush.

PAT: Be interesting if it was Saul Alinsky, big old painting of Saul Alinksy.

GLENN: It has to be a president.

PAT: That would be great oh.

GLENN: It has to be a president.

PAT: It does have to be a president.

GLENN: Do you have the shot from the president? You know the couches and the chairs?

STU: Right.

GLENN: Sitting in front of the president's desk, right? If I was sitting in the president's chair.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: It would be to the, just to the left of the door.

STU: Left of the door, okay. On the left — on the right? Both of them are just out of the view here.

PAT: Too bad.

STU: I'm going to see if I can find it.

GLENN: But you just, you don't take a bust out. You know, you don't — I mean, I don't know if —

PAT: I seriously can't think of a reason you would do that to a friendly nation unless, you know, they attacked us. Then you might send the bust back.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: You send it back then.

GLENN: You just move it to another room. You move it to another position.

PAT: Yeah, if you didn't like it, you keep it around somewhere. You don't insult them.

GLENN: You give it to the national art gallery.

PAT: Smithsonian, yeah.

GLENN: It was a gift from the people. You don't do that. I mean, have you ever received a gift from somebody? We have — oh, I hate these things. You know those Lladró things?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You like those, don't you?

PAT: Well, my wife does.

GLENN: I hate those.

PAT: I'm kind of neutral on them. I don't really care.

GLENN: Neutral? They should all be destroyed. I hate them. I hate them.

PAT: That's an extremist position on Lladró.

GLENN: I know it is, yeah. Soccer and Lladrós.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So these figurines, we have one of them we got when we were married, and I hate this damn — I hate it. But we keep it because the person —

PAT: Did we give it to you?

GLENN: I just realized —

PAT: Did I give it to you?

GLENN: No, you didn't. I just realized I'm revealing too much because they may be listening. Okay, it's just out in the open. I hate it. We keep it and when you come over, we put it out. It goes back into a box in our China cabinet and it's taking up space and we hate it!

PAT: But you don't send it back.

GLENN: We don't send it back. And if I wasn't so stupid and such a big mouth, you wouldn't know it! We keep it because we love you. We keep it because we love you. And we want you to know that we love you. Now, I personally think it shows how much we love you because we hate the damn gift. But we keep it and we bring it out when you come over. You require extra work for us! Because we love you. Now, you don't — I wouldn't ever say, "Come here, take this back." No, we gave it to you as a gift. "Yeah, we don't need it anymore."

PAT: "We don't want it, we don't like you."

GLENN: What is that? It is Abe Lincoln?

PAT: Good call on that.

GLENN: Who do you think

PAT: Abe. It's got to be. You are right, transformative.

GLENN: Woodrow Wilson. You know what? If I were ever president of the United States, that's who I'd put up there, Woodrow Wilson, just to remind me, I hate that guy!

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
