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

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


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.

What is actually in Texas' new GOP-led voting bill? Nearly every Texas House Democrat fled the state to block its passage, calling it racist and oppressive, and President Joe Biden backed them as well.

But Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to set the record straight and call out the lies: All of these claims are "completely false." He also explained his promise to "arrest" the Texas House Democrats when they return to the Lone Star State.

"What is in the bill is completely different than what they're saying, what Kamala Harris is saying, what President Biden is saying. What's in the bill actually increases the number of hours that people have to vote in the state of Texas. In the state of Texas, we have at least 12 days of early voting, and we are adding hours to those days. And on top of that, we are giving people time off from work to be able to vote. Bottom line, we're making it easier to vote in the state of Texas," Gov Abbott explained.

"In comparison, Delaware — the state that President Biden votes in — has exactly zero hours of early voting," he added. "That said, there is one thing that we're doing in the state of Texas, and that is we're making sure we tighten the reins on mail-in ballots that can lead to voter fraud. And it's not me saying that. It's a federal judge, appointed by Barack Obama, in Corpus Christi, Texas, who wrote in a legal opinion that voter fraud occurs, quote, in abundance as it concerns mail-in ballots. We know. Texans know. There is fraud in mail-in ballots in the state of Texas. It must be fixed. That's one thing we're trying to do. That being said, all these claims that we're denying people the right to vote and yada, yada, yada, are completely false."

Abbott went on to discuss the much-debated voter ID laws in Texas and to explain why Democrats insist on calling basic voter ID requirements "racist."

"When Democrats do not have truth on their side, they resort to one single word and that is 'racism' ... Texas implemented voter ID almost a decade ago, and when we went through that fight, what word did they use? Racism," he said. "Guess what? After Texas imposed voter ID requirements in the state of Texas, there have been more people voting and more people of color who went to vote. Voting didn't get harder. It got easier and more abundant in the state of Texas. And so, once again, Democrats have absolutely no legal standing, other than to say, 'racism.'"

Glenn asked Gov. Abbott to explain his pledge to "arrest" the Democratic lawmakers that fled once they return to Texas.

"Let me explain how this works. So, whenever there is a break of quorum, which is what is happening now — meaning there is not a sufficient number of people who are showing up to the Texas House of Representatives for the Texas House to engage in business. Whenever there's a quorum break like that, the House issues what's called a 'call on the House.' And when that happens, the sergeant-at-arms is authorized to work with the Texas Department of Public Safety, to — you can call it arrest, apprehend, whatever you want to call it — any of the members who are not in the Texas House of Representatives and bring them to the Texas House where they will be 'cabined' with no ability to leave the Texas House chamber, without a permission slip from the speaker."

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."
