New executive order on gun control could require your doctor to turn you in

During the healthcare debates in 2009, one of the main criticisms of the bill on booths sides of the aisle was over privacy concerns. With a national database of health records, what would keep the government from digging around in your personal life? Despite the government's reassurance that "the government is not going to do that," the more power the federal government obtains, the less true that seems to be.

Glenn has spoken out against electronic medical records since this debate started, but unless your wealthy enough to pay cash there's no avoiding them. That's how health insurance claims are filed. And now, one of the new executive orders on gun control, may make his case.

"There's a fix in the new healthcare law now coming through one of the executive orders," Glenn said. "One of the new executive orders on gun control is, 'the government needs to know if you have a gun. And the government wants you to know that if you have a gun, and there is anyone with any kind of psychiatric issue going on, you must get rid of the gun. You must turn it in."

"Now let's think about this," he continued. "First of all, how do we describe that? That means anybody with any kind of post-traumatic stress syndrome has to get rid of the gun. Anybody who was in the military who has any kid of paperwork like that, you have to get rid of your gun. Let's say there was a woman who was being stalked or she was raped. Are you telling me she didn't go to a psychiatrist and wasn't treated for that? Of course she was. If she has a gun, she has to turn it in now. If you move in an aunt who has Alzheimer's, you have to get rid of the gun. If you have a teenager that is depressed, and you treat them with a psychiatrist, you have to get ride of your guns. And if you don't, it is going to be a felony."

To be clear, these are necessarily the final parameters of any legislation or executive orders that will be passed. This was the word coming out on one, possibly two, of the executive orders being considered as of this morning.

Glenn went on to explain what the ramifications of a law this broad could be. If a kid or a teenager had a rough time in high school and went to the doctor because they were depressed, that family could instantly lose their right to own a firearm.

"Everybody in life goes through depression. This is the most overmedicated society in the history of the world," Glenn noted. "How many people are on Prozac? How many people are on those drugs?"

When do you get those guns back? Do you get them back? More importantly, what about the Hippocratic Oath? The law the legally protected you, the patient, and your privacy.

There is no right to privacy under the Hippocratic Oath under an executive order that requires physicians to report patients with mental health issues.

"How many people will stop telling their doctors things that are important?" Glenn asked.

Anyone who has ever had private health insurance under an individual plan will understand the implications of this. Essentially this would allow the government to do is label any and all mental health issues, from any point in your life, a "pre-existing condition" for gun ownership. If you've ever tried to change health insurance after a serious illness or injury on an individual health plan, you know how impossible it is. Even if it's an illness that could never return, you can become virtually uninsurable because you are grouped into a 'high risk' column.

"How many people will have real psychiatric issues and not report them? And when it comes to depression, if you don't catch it early, you'll keep sliding into the abyss, and that's when it becomes dangerous," Glenn said.

Most individuals suffering from mental illness already have a hard time talking about issues like depression. Now, they have to deal with the fear of punishing everyone under their roof and a doctor being "required" to turn them in.

This executive order would group anyone with a history of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, PTDS, etc, into the "mentally ill" column. So if you or anyone in your house is in that group, your 2nd Amendment rights have become extremely limited at best.

The biggest problem with these kind of laws is that everything is viewed by the collective. An individual look isn't taken at each patient, much less each illness. And, as Glenn points out, can be a slippery slope that leads to dehumanizing these individuals all together.

"The ramifications of what we are doing and what we're talking about…and no one will actually talk about the moral issues behind all of this. We're talking about these things that are life changing, culture changing, things that are profound in their repercussions," Glenn told listeners.

Euthanasia is occurring more and more frequently in industrialized countries around the world — the value of life seems to be on the decline in the eyes of European countries. Glenn gave the example of a set of 41-year-old twins in Belgium that were Euthanized recently. They weren't terminally ill, they weren't in chronic pain, they were just deaf and had glaucoma.

"They didn't want to be deaf and blind, so the state killed them. State-assisted suicide," Glenn said.

"They [Belgium] euthanized 1033 people in 2011," Pat noted. "They're euthanizing a lot of people."

It's a trend that's on the rise, Glenn explained, because the excuses are on the rise.

"They didn't want to live like that. They didn't want to be that way. It's costing too much.  We're going to lose our guns.  We're going to lose our rights. We're going to lose this, we're going to lose that," Glenn listed off. "It will happen. But remember, the President will tell you these are common sense things."

'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."
