Glenn Beck: Obama drops his seal



TheBlaze: Yikes! Presidential Seal Falls From Podium During Obama Speech

GLENN: Now, the Obama/Hillary ticket is on the table?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Do you really believe that?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah, I do.

STU: Why, though? I mean, you know, Biden is certainly an embarrassment, but he has been nothing but invisible. He hasn't caused them any more problems than they're causing themselves. Why is he the problem?

GLENN: No, he's not the problem.

PAT: I mean, the theory would be she adds strength to the ticket and maybe pushes him back over the top because people that don't like him will like they are and they'll think that she can keep him in check and she's

GLENN: She's more moderate. She's the same I mean, read the book by David Horowitz, Shadow Government. Holy cow. Hillary Clinton and George Soros, cut from the same cloth, you know, who's on the other end of the Blackberry? Well, you know it's Soros' people, but it might be it might be Hillary Clinton. I mean, let's not let's not separate her and put her into the, you know, sane and moderate camp. She was there she's the one who was what, media matters or moveon.org.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: She was the one that helped start that with Soros'.

STU: According to her, only.

GLENN: Yeah, I know I have that crazy, unreliable source

STU: Her

GLENN: Hillary Clinton.

PAT: She's also, let's not forget, not a liberal but an early 20th century American progressive.


8.28.10: The Documentary


This is our first full-length documentary and it’s going to blow you away. It’s an exclusive inside look at the making of the 8-28 Rally. When we say exclusive, we mean it. From the time Glenn arrived in Washington DC to the time he took the stage our cameras were rolling. You will not believe what went on behind the scenes. Learn more...

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That's a little scary.

GLENN: Yeah, if you know who they are. Do you have the presidential seal falling off the speech?

PAT: Yeah, it fell right off the podium.

GLENN: Play this audio and I found one thing disturbing. This is really not mentioning because, well okay. I haven't ever seen the presidential seal fall off, but I've never seen a fly land on the President's face, especially about four times in one year. So

STU: It definitely seems like the bees may have been behind the sign pushing it off. I'm just saying.

GLENN: Did you see the pictures from the rally, the 10 2 10 rally? Did you guys see this? There was a picture and it was done by the government. It was under a tree, right by the reflecting pool. Did you say see it, Sarah?

SARAH: The barricade, yeah.

GLENN: You've got to see it. It's on The Blaze. They put a barricade up and what did it say? Bee hive area or something? Stay away?

STU: (Laughter.)

GLENN: I mean, the bees know.

PAT: They do.

GLENN: But here is the presidential seal falling off during the speech.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It feels like science and engineering and math. We cannot sustain oops. Was that my

GLENN: Yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Oh, goodness. That's all right. All of you know who I am.

GLENN: Good recovery.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Good recovery.

PAT: That was nice.

GLENN: Very nice.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But I'm sure some of you back there that's really nervous right now. Don't you think?

PAT: What I like is Olberman's challenge at the end. They're sweating bullets back there, aren't they?

OLBERMAN: $2 to the first conservative who says that's some sort of sign from God.

PAT: I'll take that two bucks. That's a sign from God.

GLENN: (Laughter.) Wait. Does he have to pay for just the first, because if not, we can just line up.

STU: He did say the first conservative.

PAT: He did say that.

GLENN: So, are you the first?

PAT: I don't know, but if I am, I want my 2 bucks. That's a sign from God.

GLENN: No. I think the flies landing on his face

PAT: That was a sign from God, too, but we didn't get the first one. Only we got that first one. So, he sent this one, too. Look. I'm going to knock the presidential seal right off the podium. Do you still not get it? What do I have to do?

GLENN: What more do you need?

PAT: Does fire and brimstone have to hit the White House and burn it to the ground while fire fighters watch? What do I have to do?

GLENN: Here's the thing. I think it's true, though, somebody backstage was freaking out.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: I think somebody backstage was freaking

PAT: Can you imagine if you're responsible for putting the presidential seal in place and it falls?

GLENN: Can you imagine? He finishes his speech and he comes back and says, Who attached the seal? Come to me now. That was just a sign from God? Oh, okay.

PAT: Okay. That's worth, like, 20 bucks. I want to see a check from Olberman for, like, 20 bucks for that.

GLENN: Get out! Get out, priest!

PAT: The Olberman references never get old. They really don't. They really don't.

GLENN: That intern was just thrown out of the upper story window from the White House. (Indicating) and then there was a lightning strike and some sort of big spear that somehow or the other was on ton of a church steeple came down and went through him. 2 bucks for the first person that says that the priest being thrown out of the window of the White House and a spear being knocked out of a church steeple by lightning and going through the priest was a sign from God! (Laughter.) 10 bucks to Keith Olberman when he says that wasn't a sign from God. It's the omen, man.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
