Glenn Beck: Obama losing Hispanic vote



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. More...

GLENN: All righty then. So this new Gallup poll, Obama down to 41% approval, 52% of the American people now disapprove. Stu, have you seen the latest Hispanic numbers? Because what the press isn't concentrating on is his Hispanic numbers have fallen through the floor. Now, that's significant. Because that was his strategy in Arizona, Hispanics.

STU: Yeah. I mean, they have been pandering to Hispanic voters forever and this is their big stance this year is to say that, you know, apparently that Hispanic voters don't care about the law being enforced. It doesn't seem to be working out very well for him.

GLENN: It's ridiculous. It's absolutely ridiculous.

STU: Yeah, he's down Obama's down among Hispanics in approval rating, this is from

GLENN: January?

STU: I think his peak was in March of here it is, March, actually looks like May of 2009 where he has now fallen 28 points.

GLENN: 28 points.

STU: Since then. And basically if you look at his approval rating among whites and blacks, it's pretty much flat in 2010. The entire fall of 2010 has come from Hispanic voters. It's fallen from about, about 16 points since the beginning of the year, which is I mean, that's a dramatic fall

GLENN: Dramatic.

STU: From one group when the others are stable.

GLENN: So whites are stable?

STU: Yeah, whites are stable, have been about the low 40s, dropped to 38 from 40.

GLENN: And what are African Americans?

STU: They are chimed in about 88% approval.

GLENN: 88%.

STU: Which is exactly what their approval rating was of Barack Obama the day he was inaugurated.

GLENN: Not one mind has been changed?

STU: Well, no

GLENN: For or against?

STU: No, he actually, about 6% more approved of him about midway through his first year and those 6% have fallen back off. So he went from 88 to 94 back down to 88.

GLENN: Wow.

STU: Does well, does well there. But

GLENN: That's amazing.

STU: I mean, you know, to see an 82 to 54% drop among Hispanic voters is a dramatic decline.

GLENN: Here is a here's a stat in this latest poll. Is this Gallup, the new one? It's a new Gallup poll where he's down to 41%. 24% of Americans believe he is a Muslim. You know what? Here's the problem with this. I find that a disturbing poll because I don't think I think that is the easy answer for people who are like, well, it doesn't make sense. Nothing makes sense. And I think the easy thing is to say, I think he's a Muslim. I don't I really don't. I think he is a Christian that Christians don't recognize. And because no one in the mainstream media understands Christianity at all and because you have so many powerful forces like at the Washington Post that has their big religion section and it is run or it is sat on by people like Jim Wallis, you have such a distortion of our religion in the mainstream media, from social justice activists, that nobody is explaining why Barack Obama doesn't feel right. And we've tried to do that. We've tried to show you that social justice, as understood by Barack Obama and people like Barack Obama, that understand his form of Christianity, is it is socialism. It's Marxism. That is its root. Social justice is Marxism at its root.

STU: Liberation theology brand of it.

GLENN: Right.

STU: And that makes sense, since most Americans' exposure to Barack Obama's church is Jeremiah Wright.

GLENN: Right.

STU: He was the pastor.

GLENN: Now, you have to understand, Barack Obama was not a Christian until Jeremiah Wright. He has said on several occasions that he understood Jesus through Jeremiah Wright. So it's not like he was raised, you know, a Catholic or Episcopalian or anything else. He was raised, if I'm not mistaken, Muslim for a while.

PAT: I don't think he had much of any religion at all.

GLENN: Yeah. I think he was there was some Muslim

PAT: He went to a Muslim school when he was real young in Indonesia when he was there.

GLENN: Yeah. I think he's most likely, knowing his parents and his influence, it was more likely that he was surrounded with a bigger influence of atheism than anything else. But, you know, let's just say he was neutral on everything. When he did get Jesus, he got it from Jeremiah Wright. This is liberation theology which teaches that Jesus was the victim and the man; the Romans were the oppressor. The system, the government was the oppressor. So the story of Jesus takes on a whole different light because if you are a if you are a Jesus freak, you know that Jesus wasn't a victim. Jesus was the savior. Jesus was the Messiah. Jesus was the conqueror, not a victim. And so it's that root of understanding that now brings him to collective salvation, which is I'm sorry, but I believe it was the pope on collective salvation that said that's not divine; that's demonic. Think of that. Just please understand what the pope has said. When the government tries to do what only God can do through collective salvation, through justice, a godly justice, save us all or none of us will be saved, it becomes demonic. Now, I know what demonic means and I'm pretty sure that the pope doesn't just throw that word out there in casual conversation. "You know what? I've got to tell you something. Have you seen, have you seen American Idol? Man, that last act, she was demonic!" I don't think he means it in the real demonic sort of way.

This is what Americans are missing because no one will tell them that.

PAT: And they have a lot of statements like America's not a Christian nation, at least not just, it's also Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, all that. You got that statement he made on scriptures, you remember that, where he

GLENN: This is you know what? This should speak an awful again, he's going to scriptures here and he's quoting scriptures she's saying, so whose scriptures do we use? What parts of the scriptures do we use? Listen.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Whose Christianity would we teach in the schools? Would it be James Dobson's or Al Sharpton's? Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus which suggests slavery's okay?

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That eating shellfish is an

GLENN: Stop for a second. This is one of the most ridiculous, weakest arguments I've ever heard. I mean, really? Really? That's what we're going to go back to slavery.

PAT: Well, it shows an unbelievably limited understanding of the scriptures and what was going on at the time and where the scriptures come from, whose law they were abiding by at the time, all of those things that you've got a lack of understanding here.

GLENN: It's Christianity how about

PAT: Unreal.

GLENN: this one, the New Testament.

PAT: Yeah, Old Testament versus New Testament?

GLENN: The new covenant.

PAT: You are going by Moses's law as opposed to Jesus' law? I mean

GLENN: That's not Christianity.

PAT: That's not Moses was not a Christian. He was a Jew. So it's kind of tough to

GLENN: And it was also a completely different time.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Milk before meat. I mean, it's it is such a distortion, and it shows contempt

PAT: It does.

GLENN: for the scriptures. It is, again, liberation theology, liberation theology. Why would you bring up the slave thing? Does anybody really think that that's what we're that's what we're really all about? Really? The slave thing? Why would you bring up? Because that's an important part of the Jewish story to Barack Obama's preacher. Slavery. The oppressor versus the oppressed. That's why he highlights that. Because that's his understanding of distorted Christianity, of this Christianity that is, look, were Christians bad at times? Yeah. Were Jews bad at times? Yeah. Were Muslims bad at times? Yeah. Is everybody bad at times? Yes. Have I been? Yes. Have you been? Yes. The idea is do unto others. Do unto others. Just that one principle of Christianity is darn near impossible to master, just the one. I don't know about you but I've got thou shalt not kill, I got it down. I got it mastered. No graven images thing? Unless, unless the Native Americans are right, I got that one down, too. But, whew, do unto others at all times? All the time? Really? That stinks. That's what you teach. And you know what? You don't have a problem with this if you abolish the Department of Education. Because then you allow the school districts to teach it. Then you allow the communities to decide. Just like if you want my football team in the town that I live to practice during Ramadan between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 4:00 a.m., I got a problem with that. But if that's what the football team decides to do in Dearborn, Michigan because the makeup of the community is Muslim, I celebrate that. Now, what would the now, whose football practice times are we going to use? Are we going to use the imams in Dearborn or Glenn Beck's bishop where he lives? How about we use both of them? Depending on what the community says? You can't point that out, can you? No, you can't point that out because that takes power away from the federal government. Which is exactly what needs to happen.

Look. America, you know, I said this on stage in Salt Lake during the American Revival. I don't think so. I don't think so. I'll be wow, will I be shocked. If I cross over to the other side and God and I haven't been made in the image of God because God is an octopus, a giant space octopus. But... strange well, no, stranger things haven't happened, but it could happen. I just don't think so. I just don't think so. I think what we have to do is I don't think that Barack Obama is a Muslim. Stranger things have happened. God could be a giant space octopus, too. What we should do is look at the facts. The fact is he's a Christian and his entire understanding of Christianity comes, in his own words, comes from Jeremiah Wright. That's how he understands Christianity. That's why you're uncomfortable with the decisions that he makes, especially when he tries to frame it in a religious sort of way. Because he doesn't speak your same language. His understanding of Christianity is turning Christianity upside down. Does that make him wrong? Ask the space octopus. I don't know. But I'm pretty sure that it is wrong and a distortion. The pope is pretty clear that it's a distortion. He'll go so far as calling it a demonic distortion. I just say that's why you feel uncomfortable, and it's a question when you're uncomfortable about something, you should ask questions. Not only of the things you're uncomfortable about, but yourself. "Why do I feel that way? What is wrong? What is it that I believe? Where am I on these issues?" The days of and this is really a good thing. I've never had a bad period in my life that I, years and years and years later didn't look back on and say, man, that was a good period in my life because I learned a lot. Don't be afraid of learning a lot. Don't be afraid of being uncomfortable. No pain, no gain. Your muscles, your mental muscles, your spiritual muscles, your muscle muscles, all of it, all of it. Your constitutional muscles are being stretched to the limit. You haven't used some of these muscles for a long time. You are going to feel uncomfortable and you are going to be tired. Don't get off the treadmill. Get back on and speed it up. Stretch yourself. Stretch yourself. Because in the end you're going to be stronger because of it.

Did Google create a SENTIENT artificial intelligence?

Did Google create a sentient artificial intelligence?

A software engineer on Google’s artificial intelligence development team, Blake Lemoine, is convinced that the company's A.I. is now sentient and able to hold conversations at the level of a 7 or 8-year-old child. Google has dismissed Lemoine's claims and suspended him, but as Glenn Beck noted on the radio program, this isn't the first time a company insider has warned of the possible existence, and potential threat, of artificial general intelligence.

Glenn shared the details of Lemoine's "very disturbing story" and broke down the pros (curing cancer and other deadly diseases) and cons (the complete inhalation of the human race) of the remarkable scientific advancements in artificial intelligence.

"Because of high tech, we're going to see miracles in our lives," Glenn said. "The tricky part is to not see horror shows in our lifetimes."

Here's why oil companies REALLY aren't producing more gas

Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images

The Biden administration has been accusing oil producers of refusing to expand operations to help offset skyrocketing gas prices. On Wednesday, President Joe Biden even wrote a letter to seven major U.S. oil refiners, essentially saying that the administration is prepared to use emergency orders to force companies into compliance if their "greed" just doesn't stop.

"Your companies need to work with my Administration to bring forward concrete, near-term solutions that address the crisis,” Biden wrote. The letter went on to accuse refineries of capitalizing on the war between Russia and Ukraine, gleaning record-high profits while Americans suffer record-high pain at the pump.

But no matter how he tries to convince you otherwise, President Joe Biden isn't trying to bring down gas prices. In fact, he's doing just the opposite, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Thursday.

"Why aren't the oil companies putting more oil out? Well, they're a couple of reasons. And none of those have to do with Joe Biden. None of them, even though it was Joe Biden that said, when he was running [for president] that he was going to put oil out of business."

Glenn first played a clip of then-candidate Biden saying, "No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period."

The next clip had White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre shifting the blame for high gas prices from Russia's war with Ukraine to U.S. oil refineries.

"We want you to act. It's time to act," Jean-Pierre said, addressing U.S. oil companies. "We have done our part, with the strategic oil reserve. We are calling on them to do the right thing, to be patriots here. And to not use the war as an excuse or as a reason to not put -- to not put out a production, to not do the capacity that is needed there."

A third clip showed Biden’s climate envoy John Kerry saying in no uncertain terms that the U.S. “absolutely" does not need to drill for more oil and gas, during a talk with the USC Center for Public Diplomacy

The Biden administration has made it clear that insanely high gas prices are all part of the plan to eliminate fossil fuels. But the problem doesn't stop there. The ESG war against oil industries is being waged across the world.

Glenn read an op-ed from Vivek Ramaswamy that explains how BlackRock is manipulating corporations like Exxon to decrease oil production, while Americans continue to suffer majorly at the pump.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has been telling those naughty Americans who are struggling to afford fuel for their older, gas-guzzling vehicles to just go get a brand-new electric vehicle like the Ford Mustang Mach-E (listed at a market average of $47,553 in Consumer Reports.)

Here he is, all "charged up, ready to go" and, oh, so "excited to go pick up a friend" (Energy Secretary Jennifer M. Granholm) and share the "momentous" news about a new" national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers."

And who could forget the transportation secretary's helpful advice to people who can't afford record-high gas prices in March?

"Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people, as well," said Buttigieg. "Last month we announced a $5 billion investment to build out a nationwide electric vehicle charging network, so the people from rural to suburban to urban communities can all benefit from the gas savings of driving an EV."

But now that Ford is recalling 48,924 Mustang Mach-E electric vehicles because of a defect in the vehicle’s "battery contactor," will Buttigieg have to go back to riding his bike — back and forth from his security detail's giant SUV that follows along behind him, which was definitely not ever a publicity stunt?

According to Consumer Reports, Ford is recalling the Mach-E because the vehicle’s battery contactor may overheat, causing the vehicle to lose power while driving. A Ford spokesperson said the company plans to send an over-the-air software update for current Mach-E owners in July.

Unlike out-of-touch Buttigieg, Washington Examiner national political reporter Salena Zito understands the current sentiments of the average American. She joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about sky-high gas prices, spreading crime, the never-ending border crisis, and all the other reasons Americans are fed up with the current administration.

While Democrats try to get us to focus on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, most of us are struggling to afford the insane gas prices, which recently passed $5 on average across the country.

"There isn't a time that I don't pull up to a gas station where you don't hear someone cuss at the gas pump," Zito told Glenn. And that news, she predicted, could be "monstrous" for Democrats in the upcoming midterms.

In his episode “Famine & Blackouts: How Biden-Made Disasters Will Cripple America,” Glenn Beck exposed the new global-based rule changes that gave the World Health Organization expedited authority over our nation. He traced the changes to the SEC and revealed Bank of America’s fawning praise for climate-related market changes.

So, Glenn decided to dig further, and what he uncovered shocked him. Financial records, dark money groups, and groups tied to the U.N. and the World Economic Forum are all pushing for a total reorganization of our financial system. You never voted for globalist leadership outside our borders, but IT IS HAPPENING.

Glenn reveals the foreign actors who are REALLY running our country right now and the domestic TRAITORS who are helping to fund the implementation on Main Street, USA. There will be catastrophic consequences for this betrayal of America First ideas. If you think food, gas, and labor shortages are bad now, just wait until all of this goes through.
