Glenn Beck: Obama's spiritual mess


This poorly done artist rendering shows Glenn's reaction to elevators with TV's in them...

GLENN: Dan, do you have any elevator music? Because I think I believe it could -- I believe it could soothe the savage beast in me today.

(Music playing).

GLENN: See, now imagine yourself in the supermarket, you know, and you're looking for Cocoa Puffs. Your kid's screaming, spread eagle there on the center of the supermarket floor (crying). And you're just listening (humming). You know what I mean? Somebody could say, "Hey, Bill." "Yeah?" "Is that your kid spread eagle in the floor on the last aisle?" "Yeah." (Humming) "Did you last everything in the stock market last week, Bill?" "Yeah." "Hey, do you know where the Cocoa Puffs are?" "Yeah. Two aisles past the screaming kid." I can live in this world! I can't live in the world where Barack Obama can say we're cherry-picking where we're just taking a man out of context for his comment. I can't live in a world where Barack Obama says he goes to church every Sunday and didn't know what his pastor said the weekend after 9/11. Do you remember what your pastor said the weekend after 9/11? Do you remember what your minister said? I remember what my bishop said after the weekend after 9/11. I can tell you everything about that room the weekend after 9/11. What, did Barack Obama not go to -- was he the only guy that didn't go to church the weekend after 9/11? Apparently not because he didn't find out what his pastor said right after 9/11.

Dan, do you happen to have that?

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York in the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards! America's chickens are coming home to roost.

GLENN: Okay. A little Ray Conniff, please, as I explain. Thank you, Dan.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: See, when you're on the elevator, you don't get upset. You just, you speak in hushed tones, you know? Stop, stop the music for a second. Go back to the clip. Let's say you're on the elevator and you got the little TV screen there in the wall of the elevator and this comes on the news.

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye.

GLENN: About this time is when you say, ahhhhh! I can't take it anymore!

Stop. Now give me the Ray Conniff. Now put on top of it what's his face.

Elevator music is the key to life. Think about this time when the Ray Conniff singers are singing behind him and you look at your friend and say, "This guy's a dope." And you move on with your life! Now, let me ask you this: How is it that Barack Obama didn't find out about those comments for six years? He said he didn't even know he made these comments about 9/11, didn't know. For six years! He goes to this church for 20 years. He calls this reverend one of his spiritual advisors. By the way, just to throw on top of it, Barack Obama I hear is also a politician. So you'd think people would be saying, "Hey, by the way, Barack, did you hear what he said about 9/11?" Barack Obama claims he didn't even know about what the Reverend Wright said before 9/11. Well, let me ask you this question: If your minister said that the weekend after 9/11, do you think the people in your congregation would be talking about it?

More elevator music, please. Do you think people in your congregation would be calling each other up, especially those that weren't there, and said good heavens, you should have heard what he said! Do you think anybody would be talking about it? If Barack Obama really didn't know for six years what this guy said, then you know what? This guy didn't say anything out of the ordinary. They expected him to say that. This would have come as a complete shock to me if I would have heard that the weekend after 9/11.

Stu, it would have been -- I would have said something. If nobody said anything, if the people weren't, you know, all afire walking out of there going, oh, my gosh, then you know what? It's business as usual at Barack Obama's church. If nobody thought, wow, I should tell Barack Obama I didn't see him in the pew today; somebody should tell him because this isn't going to be good for his political career, then they every single one, every single member, every single friend of Barack Obama that attends this church with him think that he would agree with it or thinks that he wouldn't be shocked by it because I got news for you. If that speech were happening in my church after 9/11, I know I'd have friends who would say to me, "Glenn, whew, you should have heard what the bishop said." If I had a friend who was just in the business who happened to be in the church, somebody who was looking out for me in my business and the bishop said something like that, they would have call me and said, "Oh, my gosh, Glenn, you wouldn't believe what he said. And by the way, you better look it up because this is going to be everywhere. You've got to distance yourself from him immediately and stop calling him your main spiritual advisor." But it didn't happen because this is business as usual.

Now the left is saying that people like me, I'm racist because I'm cherry-picking. Dan, do you have what he calls Condoleezza Rice?

REVEREND WRIGHT: They live below the sea -- no, they live below the level of --

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. Let me explain this. When he says they live below the sea, below the sea level, he's talking about African-Americans that are Republicans. Okay, now play it.

REVEREND WRIGHT: They live below the sea -- no, they live below the level of Clarence, Colin and Condoleezza.

GLENN: They live below the sea level because they have a different philosophy. I'm cherry-picking what this man says? By the way, this is a guy who went over with Louis Farrakhan and met with Gaddafi. No, don't worry about that. What else do we have on -- need more elevator music, Dan.

(Music playing.)

GLENN: What... what is this? Cowboy elevator music?

DAN: "Walk the Line."

GLENN: I mean, right now this is like if John Wayne were a sissy. Johnny Cash is not -- all of a sudden Johnny Cash, you know, he's wearing like a nice lavender suit. What is this? I can't take this one. This one's going to make my head explode. Do you have another piece of -- Ray Conniff. "Oh, you're Ray Conniff, you are the guy who made the -- you made -- you're the one who made all the elevator music?" "Yes, I am." "Yeah. You're going to hell." That was the conversation with St. Peter. This is much better.

All right, go ahead and play -- give me one last clip here of --.

(Audio and music playing.)

GLENN: That guy's a dope. Do you know where the Cocoa Puffs are? You know, and now Bill Clinton, Bill Clinton is being criticized -- I can't believe I'm defending Bill Clinton. Hang on just a second. Lord, have I not done -- take me now, will you? Just take me now. I'm on an upswing. You know, I'm not perfect but I think it's the trajectory that gets me to a happy place. Take me now, Lord, will ya! All right, I'm back. So Bill Clinton now is getting heat for his racist comment.

Dan, I'm going to give the Bill Clinton racist comment and then I'm going to -- no, you know what, I want you to start with the first racist comment from the reverend that we played the first thing and then I want you to play the last cut after -- and I'm going to sandwich in between these two cuts the racist comment that Bill Clinton is making, that he has had to apologize for over and over and over again, okay? So you play the first one. Then I'm going to give the, just -- and I apologize in advance for the racist comment that Bill Clinton made because it's really, it's very harsh and I want you to know I'm just quoting it. I'm not -- I don't believe that what Bill Clinton said is right and I reject it, I repudiate it, I think it's disgusting, I think it's despicable but I'm just going to quote Bill Clinton. It's not coming from me. It's just a quote from Bill Clinton, and I'll put it in between and then you compare and contrast yourself. Go ahead.

REVEREND WRIGHT: We bombed Hiroshima, we bombed Nagasaki and we nuked far more than the thousands of New York and the Pentagon and we never batted an eye. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and black South Africans and now we are indignant because the stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yards. America's chickens are coming home to roost.

GLENN: Yes, Barack Obama had a victory in South Carolina but so did Jesse Jackson. He won the state in 1984 and 1988.

REVEREND WRIGHT: The guns and the drugs, build bigger prisons, passes a three strike law and then walks up to sing God Bless America? No, no, no, not God Bless America. God ban America. That's in the Bible for killing innocent people. God damn America for killing the citizens that's less than human.

GLENN: I can see why Bill Clinton needed to apologize. I mean, be like me -- and I'm not saying this but that would be like me saying, "Yeah, Hillary Clinton won Ohio but so did John Kerry, you know? And I'm not saying that. I don't believe that. It you to be very, very clear that's not me saying. I'm just using that as an example."

Here's the amazing thing. This man can say these things and yet the left will write articles like this: "Reverend Jeremiah Wright, anti-American or a man speaking truth to power?" And I can't even repeat the words, the hate mongering words of Trent Lott at a birthday party. Don't talk to me about cherry-picking. Jeez. The world was a lot better when we weren't drinking bottled water and we had Ray Conniff, you know, to tone down that crazy Johnny Cash music.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
