It's time to debunk the myth the Obama administration was tough on terror

Was the Obama Administration the toughest President on terrorism? Because that's the line they've wanted us to swallow. You know, forget about supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (the founders of modern-day jihadism) and let's also forget about giving the world's leading state sponsor of terror, Iran, 400 million in cash on a pallet at the Tehran airport. Let's forget about those little hiccups, because - after all - he killed Bin Laden! Here's President Obama back in 2011 on the state of al Qaeda. Watch:



So in other words, their leader was dead and the movement was dying. So if that's true, if you had them on the ropes and this was all but a won battle, why was the Obama Administration giving money to al Qaeda's global finance network?

The story goes back fourteen years. The U.S. Treasury Department had caught a group called the Islamic Relief Agency red-handed in raising funds to support jihadists. They had branches all over the world including the Middle East, Africa, Western Europe and even here in the United States. They were responsible for channeling over 1.2 million dollars to Iraqi insurgents fighting U.S. soldiers in Iraq. They were also found guilty of raising more than 5.0 million dollars for Osama Bin Laden.

The Islamic Relief Agency was designated as a terror financing organization, and you'd think the story would stop after that.

Well… it doesn't. Just ten years after they were designated as terror financiers, the Obama Administration approved a 200,000 grant for them to do work in Africa. An NGO had contracted them to do work in Sudan. When the NGO mentioned that this contracted group might be on the terror list, the Obama administration paused the deal.

Now here's where it gets weirder. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt for a second. It's possible someone within the Obama administration screwed up the application process and just simply didn't check to see if this group was on the terror list. It's incredibly dangerous and incompetent, but at least it's understandable.

That's over one hundred thousand dollars of your tax money that was given to terrorists.

But here's what I can't understand. At this point, everyone involved knows about the Islamic Relief Agency and what they're involved in. They know they're on the terror list. But knowing all that, they still agreed to pay them one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars. That's over one hundred thousand dollars of your tax money that was given to terrorists.

There's one U.S. government agency at the center of all this, and they have a strange knack for being directly in the middle of some of the darkest, and most secret, things our government is involved in. See who I'm talking about tonight on TV.

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
