Glenn Beck: Dreams of Barack Obama's Father




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

What were the dreams of your father?

Maybe he wanted you to go to college, because he didn't even graduate from high school. He probably wanted something better for you than he had. Maybe he wanted to start his own business and be his own boss. Maybe he wanted to take your mother to Europe or South America on a dream vacation. Maybe he just wanted to retire with enough money to make his golden years comfortable, enjoy his grandchildren and go fishing?

Even if those weren't the dreams of your father, they're probably dreams that you can at least relate to, as an American. Chances are your father didn't dream of leaving his family and two-year-old toddler behind to continue his education at an Ivy League school, so that he could take that American government-paid education back to his home country, along with a woman he picked up in Boston who would become his third wife, to encourage his nation to drop the newfangled socialism being promoted, in favor of old-style Soviet Marxism.

How many of our fathers had that dream? There's only one that I can think of. Of course, the dreams of Barack Obama's father were a little more complicated than that, but essentially that's what Barack Obama, Sr., did. He fought against the "African socialism" advocated by pro-Western "Third Way" leader Tom Mboya and the president of Kenya, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta and in favor of the communist-allied leader Jaramogi Oginga Odinga.

In a 1965 article titled "Problems Facing Our Socialism" — written just one year after Kenyatta took office — Obama, Sr., mocks the government's economic policy of "African socialism" while focusing on what needs to be done in Kenya: "What is more important is to find means by which we can redistribute our economic gains to the benefit of all and at the same time be able to channel some of these gains to future production. This is the government's obligation."

He goes on: "But we also need to eliminate power structures that have been built though excessive accumulation so that not only a few individuals shall control a vast magnitude of resources as is the case now."

"How can we afford to ignore the pockets of this economy which are underdeveloped without some positive statement about their development. In Kenya, the colonial government only developed the so-called white areas."

Hmm, that doesn't sound Marxist to me at all.

When Barack Obama, Sr., went back to Kenya he became the senior economist within the Kenyan government, until his disagreements with President Kenyatta led to his firing and apparent alcoholism.

Back in Hawaii, according to President Obama's first book, "Dreams From My Father," his mother Stanley Ann Dunham continued to direct young Barack's attention and focus to the character and ideology of his communist, atheist, biological father, rather than toward the man to whom Dunham was re-married, Lolo Soetoro of Indonesia.

Caught between three races and three worlds, Barack Jr., was left with the faint memories and constant stories of the man who left him behind and later the stories of his father's father. Hussein Onyango Obama became a cook for the British colonial troops and converted to Islam.

What were the dreams of Barack Obama's grandfather? Well, Hussein became involved with the independence movement in Kenya and when that was discovered by colonial forces in 1949, he was taken into custody and jailed for six months by the British. According to Obama's grandmother, one of Hussein's wives, the British brutally tortured him while in custody to the point where he suffered permanent physical disabilities.

Putting that piece of the puzzle into place might shed some light on the way Barack Obama deals with the British today.

Remember way back in May when the White House said it would keep a "boot on the throat" of BP? Or when we needed NATO's help in sending more troops to support our war in Afghanistan? Guess who was there to lend a hand? I'll give you a hint, it wasn't Germany and France.

But this shouldn't come as a surprise. The British were reportedly warned when Obama was elected that while Britain will "remain special" to us, they "might have to make room for a few more special countries"

The dreams of Obama's grandfather — an independent Kenya — were realized. The dreams of his father — a Marxist utopia for that now-independent nation — seem closer than ever. The new Kenyan constitution was put to a referendum and passed late last week and the exciting new document contains a preamble, spelling out the "social justice" of the people's right to housing, health care and food. How will a nation as poor as Kenya make good on those rights? It also just happens to sound like the old Soviet Constitution, doesn't it?

Somewhere, Barack Obama, Sr., must be proud.

Now, what was it Barack Obama said about the U.S. Constitution?

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA: Generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties: Says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you. But it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Kenya's constitution seems to be a document of positive liberties; a list of what the government must do for you. Isn't that wonderful?

In section 33 of Kenya's new constitution, under the heading, "Freedom of Expression," it outlines a few other specifics:

(2) The right to freedom of expression does not extend to —


(a) propaganda for war;


(b) incitement to violence;


(c) hate speech; or


(d) advocacy of hatred that —


(i) constitutes ethnic incitement, vilification of others or incitement to cause harm; or


(ii) is based on any ground of discrimination specified or contemplated in Article 27 (4).


(3) In the exercise of the right to freedom of expression, every person shall respect the rights and reputation of others.

I'm sure that "incitement to violence" or "hate speech" or "advocacy" won't be the least bit difficult to define.

So are the dreams of Barack Obama unrelated to his father's? They are certainly not the dreams of my father or dreams of mine. Are they yours? My dreams — and the vast majority of Americans — share the dreams of our forefathers: The dreams responsible for creating the reality of the freest, most prosperous and generous nation to ever exist on Earth.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."
