Glenn Beck: Obama fears 'on your own' society


RELATED STORIES

GLENN: Obama has warned, "George Bush called this the ownership society but what he really meant was 'You're on your own society.' And John McCain apparently wants to continue this." Yes! Is this a trick question?

Stu, you want to continue a "You're on your own" ownership society?

STU: Is that one of those things where if you were to go into a store and purchase something, you would own it yourself?

GLENN: You would own it yourself. You wouldn't have anybody else -- but what that implies, Stu, what you're saying is you wouldn't be able to go up and give them food stamps.

STU: No, no, of course not. Let me ask you this. Let me ask you this question because I want to make sure I'm understanding this. You are talking about a society in which I would exchange currency for product.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But I would not have any right to reclaim that currency because I needed it?

GLENN: You are exactly right. This is crazy, this is crazy. Let's say you start a business, all right?

STU: Right.

GLENN: And you fail.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Because of whatever, economic conditions, you put it in the wrong place, you suck, your last name is Ebola and you thought, hey, the Ebola Eatery is a good idea. No! You fail.

STU: So you fail and then, of course, the government comes in and they give you the money.

GLENN: No, no. What John McCain wants to happen is you fail, too bad for you.

STU: So you are saying that they will say something to you as they are giving you the money back that you lost.

GLENN: No, they don't give you the money and they done even say anything. It's just, you fail.

STU: Well, wait. How do you have your money with your business?

GLENN: You don't have the money. That's the kind of society that John McCain wants. But not Barack Obama. He's giving a speech now on shared prosperity. By the way, I believe that's code for socialism. Here's a comrade -- what did you say, Stu?

STU: That's not code. That's pretty much, that's the slogan. He's not hiding it, is he?

GLENN: I don't know. Here's Mr. Barack Obama now.

SENATOR OBAMA: Committee on banking supervision, the international accounting standards board and the financial stability forum to address the same problems abroad. The goal should be to ensure that financial institutions --.

(Soviet national anthem playing.)

GLENN: So we need more regulations. Got it, okay.

SENATOR OBAMA: Third, we need to streamline a framework of overlapping and competing regulatory agencies, reshuffling bureaucracies should not be and end of itself.

GLENN: Hold it just a second. Wait a minute. Could you replay that a bit, Dan? What did he say? Go ahead. Play it again.

SENATOR OBAMA: Third, we need to streamline a framework of overlapping and competing regulatory agencies. Reshuffling --

GLENN: Stop, stop. I would like to cancel repeating and overlapping government bureaucracy. What do you say? Competing government agencies? The only time these people believe in capitalism is when it's inside the government itself? But yet it can't fail. "We'll have it compete against each other but we'll never let either one of them fail." This is communism on steroids. We're combining the two. What a nightmare. I can't -- you know what, stop, stop. Stop.

You know, here's the thing. This is where Barack Obama's preacher comes into play and I wouldn't have been able to tell you this had I not done the homework on Black Liberation Theology. First of all, I don't believe that Barack Obama, in his heart of hearts, hates the white man. I do believe that Jeremiah Wright does. That's just my guess. I don't believe that Barack Obama does. I don't believe that he's like, oh, yeah, slavery, we've got to be repaid. His church believes that. He doesn't, I don't think. He will go along with it. I do believe his wife believes it. I do believe his wife has no real affection here. She doesn't see America the same way we do. She sees it much more the way Jeremiah Wright does, but let me tell you something. Wives influence, big time. Just ask Bill and Hillary Clinton. However, I do believe what Barack Obama -- he says, oh, I heard a lot of offensive stuff but, you know, that stuff, you know, I don't agree with that. If I would have heard more of that, I would... what is he hearing in Black Liberation Theology? Black Liberation Theology is shared prosperity. It is Marxism. It is about government. It's barely a religion. It takes religion and puts it on top of government. It shows you how you're supposed to frame a government through religion. It is Marxism with Jesus instead of Karl Marx. And it's a black Jesus that hates you, honky. That's what Black Liberation Theology is.

Now, I'm not saying that Barack Obama says, yeah, Jesus hates you, honky. I am saying that he has taken the part of the Jesus which I don't know what color he thinks Jesus is. It doesn't matter. I hope it doesn't matter to Barack. But he has heard the message of Jesus that shared prosperity is the thing to do. Hope, change, Marxism. This guy is a socialist and all you have to do is listen to his words. And once you've listened to his words after you've read the words of his pastor and spiritual advisor and you've read the words of his spiritual advisor's spiritual advisor and you've done your homework on Black Liberation Theology, you know you don't have to listen for the code. You know it. He's saying it. He just speaks a different language than you do or I do because he's been attending a -- his framework is his church. Shared prosperity. He warns again -- and I just want to quote this. This should chill you to your bone. George Bush called this the ownership society but what he meant is that a "You're on your own" society. Yes, you are on your own! What happened to us? Before World War II, before the Great Depression and the New Deal, people down South were looking at the federal government when they came in under Hoover after a big flood and they said, get the hell out of here! Who are you, the federal government, to come in and try to rescue us? That's who America was! How did we lose that?

I heard a woman in Arkansas actually say we have waited for FEMA, we have waited for the trucks to arrive, we have waited long enough! And I thought to myself, yes! You have! Do it yourself! Get the hell out! I don't ever remember -- I remember, I grew up in Mount Vernon, Washington. Small town. I remember bagging sandbags for the Skagit River. It used to flood all the time. I've been in touch with my hometown recently. They are still redesigning the downtown. They are still trying to make it flood-proof. Still floods. Still need flood insurance. Why? Because the Skagit comes up. I remember sandbagging with my dad when the town was flooded. Had to do everything we could. My dad took his back out. Couldn't work for a week. Not once did I hear my father say, "Where was the government? Where were they? I put my back out." Not once did he say, "I should sue somebody. The city is involved, they should have done this." He didn't. He was part of a "You're on your own" society, and I for one want to be a part of an "On your own" society. I don't think that's a bad thing. Doesn't mean we don't help each other, doesn't mean we don't care for one another. You don't expect anybody to do anything! Your spirit hasn't been crushed. Good heavens, are we not Americans?

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Today, the Supreme Court of the United States overturned its controversial 1973 Roe v. Wadeopinion, concluding that there is no constitutional right to an abortion.

"The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the syllabus of the decision reads.

As expected, the leftist outrage erupted instantaneously, fueled largely by the misinformed idea that overturning Roe v. Wade means abortion will be banned nationwide. But, as stated in the above-mentioned Supreme Court syllabus, the authority has actually been returned to individual states and their duly elected lawmakers.

One such misinformed leftist, Parkland shooting survivor Cameron Kasky, was infuriated that those awful Supreme Court justices "just voted to kill women." So he took to Twitter to urge people to go to the homes of said Supreme Court justices to "let them know how you feel."

"Go to the home of every Supreme Court justice who just voted to kill women. Let them know how you feel," Kasky tweeted.

The backlash was immediate:

Kasky decided to delete his original tweet because he is apparently "sick of republicans talking to [him]." But, unfortunately for Kasky, the internet is indeed forever:

Speaking from the White House, President Joe Biden dutifully helped spread the misinformation about the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and took the opportunity to prompt voters to elect more Democrats in November so that Congress can write abortion protections into law. Did the president just let slip the real reason Congress hasn't made any effort to start writing such laws in the nearly two months since Justice Samuel Alito's draft opinion was "leaked" in early May?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."
