WELCOME

I’d like to kick off the first issue of the new year by offering this heartfelt sentiment to President Barack Obama: Thank you.

OK, wait, that didn’t feel big enough. Let me take another shot at it:

President Obama…THANK YOU!!!

Yeah, that was better.

Just in case you’re wondering, no, I haven’t lost what little sanity I had left and Fusion hasn’t been taken over by liberal New York City vegan Greenpeace hemp weavers. I just think it’s important to thank President Obama because I truly believe he’s helped get this country back on track. NOT through his unchecked power grab and socialist agenda, but by inspiring Americans like you to stand up, remember the ideals that your parents and grandparents taught you and steer this country back on course.

Throughout your life, a huge part of figuring out what you do want is first recognizing what you don’t want. Sometimes we get lucky and realize that what we want is exactly what’s in front of us. For example, Ronal Reagan galvanized the country through strong defense, economic growth and a renewed pride in celebrating the freedom and opportunity that is the birthright of every American. Those were a glorious eight years, and we knew a good thing when we saw it. With President Obama, though, not so much.

See, even when times are tough in this country, they’re still way better than anyplace else on Earth. (I’ll take a bad day in America over the best day Afghanistan ever had.) It can be easy to take our blessings for granted, but then a guy like President Obama comes along and tries to change things so drastically and fundamentally, we get shaken out of our complacency and back to reality.

The president can make all the flowery, impassioned speeches he wants, but you’ve shown that when Obama says, "Yes We Can," you understand that what he’s referring to is his administration’s attempt to turn the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave into a European welfare state and YOU said, "NO YOU CAN’T!"

The tea parties are just the beginning. Our eyes have been opened, and there is a grand American restoration taking place. America is returning to Her founding principles, and it’s because you’ve not only taken notice, you’ve taken action. There’s an enormous contingent of citizens just like you who aim to reshape and retake this country, and it’s growing bigger every day. Hell hath no fury like an American scorned, and we’re on the move to right the wrongs that our own leaders have been trying to shove down our throats. The future looks a whole lot brighter with eyes wide open. It’s people like you who are leading the charge toward the next and greatest chapter in the history of our United States.

Thank you President Obama. We could have done it without you, but you sure made it a whole lot easier.

 

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
