Glenn Beck: Obama's speech


GLENN:  Now, last night he started to -- he's brilliant.  He started to give the speech that he needed to be giving the whole time.  He was giving the speech of, you know, little Sally Muckenfutch without a face, except listen to the way this guy -- he won't wear a flag lapel pin but listen to the way this man wrapped himself in the flag last night.  Listen to this.

SENATOR OBAMA:  I know the promise of America because I've lived it.  Michelle has lived it.  You have lived it.  It is the line of opportunity that led my father across an ocean.

GLENN:  Okay, stop for a second.  We know it's interesting.  He said, I have lived it; Michelle has lived it.  Remember yesterday Michelle was talking about -- and I want to make sure I get this exactly right here -- the veil of impossibility that is hanging over all of our heads, end quote.  That's the way Michelle Obama expressed it the night before last in a speech in North Carolina.  There, is that your view of America?  Here's somebody who says, "I've lived it; my wife has lived it."  His wife?  I'm sorry.  Fear creates this veil of impossibility that is hanging over our heads.  She also talked about how she struggled anyhow she shouldn't have been at Princeton and she shouldn't have been at Harvard but she did it.  But it wasn't done in a way where she was making the point, you can do it, too.  She was giving the point, they keep moving the bar on us.  You work, you keep doing it but then they move the bar.  I know, as an alcoholic that was always my problem.  And so you can never reach the bar.  So Barack, I don't buy it.  I don't -- I mean, it's very, very good.  And the general person in America will buy this but boy, oh, boy, you've got to wake people up because this guy is good.  All right, more from his speech.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's the founding ideals that the flag draped over my father's coffin stand for.

GLENN:  Stop.  First of all, I can't take the guy's accent.  I can't take his accent.  I mean, I don't think I could take George Bush's accent, but I can't take four years or eight years of, "My father's -- with the flag draped coffin, was on my father's."  I can't take it.  I can't take it.  I don't even know what it is.  Is it southern?  Have you noticed that when he goes up north, it kind of sounds northeastern and then when he goes down south, it's more southern?  He's like Madonna.  You know how Madonna comes back and she's like, "I'm just..." you're from New York!  Has anybody else noticed that?

STU:  I have noticed that I mean, it was a big criticism of Hillary that she was changing her accent to the southern drawl.

GLENN:  Oh, I hate these people.  Stop with the accent.

STU:  Politicians in general, they are all irritating.  Has anyone ever changed a vote because of the way a voice sounds?

GLENN:  Somebody's accent, we're like, oh, he sounds like me.

STU:  Right.  Like, we killed Hillary Clinton for her terrible speaking voice in that shrieking sort of --

GLENN:  You know, maybe we need to add that to our stage show.  Maybe I should do part of it.  When I'm in the South, I'll do part of it like, hey, Jethro, I'm just like you.

STU:  This is my impression of what I think southern people sounds like.

GLENN:  Yeah.  Well, I was just eating some grits last night and I was thinking, shoot, I wish I had a beer.  Now let's talk energy policy.

STU:  But that was the criticism of Hillary Clinton that she was doing that, and I don't see how that -- like her voice is terrible, it irritates me to no end but I wouldn't not vote for her because of it.  I would not vote for her because of her crappy policies.

GLENN:  Or not.  The flag-draped coffin over his -- oh, I can't -- all right.  So anyway, he won't wear a flag lapel pin but he will talk about the flag draped coffin of his father.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  It's the simple truth I learned all those years ago when I worked in the shadow of all those shuttered steel mills on the south side of Chicago.

GLENN:  Stop.  Dan, do me a favor.  Look in the music.  Get the music blog open.  Can you just look under Billy Joel.  Can you find Allen for me, please.  And then I think we should just run Allentown instead of the rest of the speech because you know he's going to start talking about, oh, jeez.  And then there's poor little Sally Muckenfutch.  Go ahead, hit Allentown, please.

(Music playing).

GLENN:  Ladies and gentlemen, the next President of the United States, Mr. Barack Obama!

SENATOR OBAMA:  But in this country justice can be won against the greatest odds.  Hope can find its way back from the darkest of corners.  And when we are told that we cannot bring about the change that we seek, we answer with one voice.  Yes, we can.  So North Carolina and America, don't ever forget that this election is not about me or any candidate.  Don't ever forget that this campaign is about you.

GLENN:  Oh.

SENATOR OBAMA:  It's about your hopes.  It's about your dreams.  It's about your struggles.  It's about your aspirations.  It's about securing your portion of the American dream.  Don't ever forget that we have a choice in this country, that we can choose not to be divided, that we can choose not to be afraid, that we can still choose this moment to finally come together and solve the problems we've talked about all those other years and all those other elections.  This time can be different than all the rest.  This time we can face down those who say our road is too long, that our climb is too steep, that we can no longer keep the change that we seek.  This is our time to answer the call that so many generations of Americans have answered before by insisting that by hard work and by sacrifice, the American dream will endure.  Thank you.  Thank you, North Carolina.

GLENN:  He's fantastic.

SENATOR OBAMA:  May God bless you and the United States of America.  Thank you.

GLENN:  All we need is a little sacrifice.  All we need is a little sacrifice and we can get out of Allentown.  They're taking the coal from the ground -- not anymore.  The unions, yeah, they got a stranglehold on us.  Yeah.  Unions didn't leave.  They are out killing another business now.  That's what they're doing.

STU:  Isn't this a remix on the typical Democratic speech?  That's what Obama does well is he's not just bitching about Allentown.  He's saying that there's positive -- he's, of course, explaining it with no detail and how they're going to be here but at least he's saying it is possible.

GLENN:  Of course.  He's really good at using all of the Ronald Reaganisms, but he doesn't believe in any of them.

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:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
