The NBA is now promoting... Obamacare?

If you were already annoyed when LeBron colluded with other superstars in the NBA to form a championship caliber team, the latest news coming out of the NBA will drive you batty. According to Politico, the White House is actively looking to secure a partnership with the NBA in order to promote… Obamacare.

“If you needed a reason to dislike LeBron James, here's reason number 4,612 to not like LeBron James, and this one is way beyond LeBron James,” Glenn joked on radio this morning.

Politico reported:

The Obama administration has reached out to the NBA about a potential marketing partnership to promote the health law, POLITICO has learned.

The news, revealed recently by Massachusetts officials who have been in contact with the administration, offers a glimpse at how President Barack Obama’s team plans to push the new coverage options to a public that largely has been clueless about the new health insurance options.

The NBA declined to comment. A spokesman said, “We have nothing to announce at this time.”

“I say they have to decline. You have to decline,” Pat said. “You can't alienate more than half your fan base.”

Glenn, however, wasn’t quite so sure.

“Okay. We have the word ‘clueless’ in that story, and we also have the word ‘healthcare’, keyword, ’law’,” Glenn said. “Here's what's going to happen. They're going to make the case: Look, it is the law. It's the law. It's the law of the land. The debate is over. It's already the law of the land, and… it doesn't matter if you're for or against it. We're educating. We're educating people on how to access it because they need to have the information because it's the law.”

Although people may disagree with Obamacare as a law, at the end of the day, it is the law of the land. This allows the NBA to look at the partnership as a public awareness campaign, instead of something political.

“This isn't debating about whether we should start it or anything else,” Glenn continued. “We're saying the law has changed and you don't know how to access healthcare. And you're helping people. I mean, the NBA, we care so deeply about people, we have to help people all the time and so we have to help people. And there are a lot of people who don't even have healthcare now, and others who can no longer afford their healthcare… Here's the thing: We're helping people.”

“I mean, that's how they will justify it in their minds,” Pat agreed. But “you're going to piss off a lot of people.”

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
