Will the NFL promote Obamacare?

Last week, Glenn shared a Politico story that reported the NBA had been approached by the Obama administration to help promote and raise awareness for the Affordable Care Act. This week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is looking for more support, this time from the NFL.

From the beginning, Glenn has said that the NBA would agree to promote Obamacare under the guise of raising public awareness. In reality, Glenn believes the NBA is less interested in public health and more interested in the federal dollars and special favors the league and team owners would most likely enjoy in exchange for their support.

“And it's bad enough with the NBA. Now it gets even worse because this is getting into almost sacred territory. Now you're talking about NFL,” Pat said. “They're also trying this with the NFL. They are in talks apparently, Kathleen Sebelius, our HHS secretary, is in talks with the NFL to help promote new insurance options under the universal healthcare system.”

It is well documented that when it comes to sports, Glenn is uninterested at best. But Pat and Stu are both big sports fans and, more importantly, huge NFL fans.

“That is a real problem,” Pat said. “I mean, that creates quite a dilemma because I'm pretty much in love with the NFL. Far more than the NBA.”

“And this is why they will do it,” Glenn said. “Because if you're so dead set against [the ads], are you going to stop watching the NFL?”

Remarkably, Pat said he would stop watching the NFL if they chose to promote Obamacare. “I will,” he said. “I love it, but I can live without it. I didn't think I could live without playing video games, but I’ve been fine since giving it up.”

Sebelius and the HHS know that the captive audience an NBA or NFL game provides would be far larger than any other marketing campaign could reach. Furthermore, the demographic watching a basketball or football game (largely 18 to 35-year-olds) perfectly aligns with the very demographic the government needs to opt-in to the Obamacare exchanges in order for the system to work.

“This is the quote from TIME Magazine,” Stu said. “’The exchanges need 2.7 million 18 to 35 year olds sign up. If too few choose to enroll, the exchanges will fail and so will the law.’ That's why they are going after the NBA and the NFL. They are getting young people that don't need this insurance, by the way. The vast majority of them will be wasting money on it.”

“I wonder how many people will really take a strong stand,” Pat said. “If the NFL gets in bed with this administration and starts promoting something they vehemently disagree with, will you still watch the NFL every Sunday, Monday, Thursday?”

While Pat was steadfast in his decision to boycott the NFL should it choose to get involved in promoting Obamacare, Stu wasn’t so sure.

“I will continue to watch,” Stu said. “I can't stand this law and I will be infuriated if they promote it. However, I will say that [the NFL does] a lot of things I don't like, including all sorts of crazy green propaganda that drives me crazy.”

“Right. And you just keep taking it,” Glenn questioned.

“Well, you know, I mean, you go to movies where the actors are out there promoting this crap all the time,” Stu concluded. “You deal with businesses all the time that disagree with you politically.”

With cops under fire, businesses destroyed, and innocent civilians beaten and killed, where is the justice that well-meaning protesters were seeking for George Floyd?

On Wednesday night's special, Glenn Beck goes one on one with Blexit founder and "Blackout" author Candace Owens about what's really driving the riots, white privilege in America, and why it sickens her that Floyd has become a martyr for Black America.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan told Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday that a network of radical extremist terrorist organizations, which includes Antifa, are coordinating and escalating many of the violent riots in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Lara, who has done extensive reporting on Antifa, said it's "extraordinary" that so many Americans in the media and politics are defending the "very violent terrorist organization."

"[The media is] pretending that they care about journalism. They don't. They care about silencing, intimidating, destroying, annihilating, and getting us all to self-sensor so we don't cover any of the subjects they don't want us talking about," she said.

"For those of us who've followed [Antifa] for a while, and know what they're doing and what their agenda is, what has always been troubling is the way so many people in the media and in the political establishment have given them cover to operate," Laura added. "These are extremists. And you see a lot of parallels between extremists on the left and the right ... they pretty much operate the same way, exactly. And there's no difference between what Antifa is doing and the 'Brown Shirts' of Nazi Germany. Or the 'Black Shirts' of Mussolini."

She read the 10 points of action listed by an extremist group called the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement", which culminates with "Liberation begins where America dies."

Glenn recalled a prediction he made approximately 15 years ago, that "socialist, communists, radicals, anarchists, [and] Islamists would all work together ... they would all see the opportunity and work toward the same goal. And that's destruction of capitalism, and destruction of the Western world."

"A few years ago, I probably would not have agreed with you on that," Laura responded. "But I now see that you're absolutely correct."

The Trump-deranged media is calling the president a "coward" because he was moved to an underground bunker as riots erupted outside the White House over the weekend.

Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to set the record straight. He told Glenn that under Title 18, US Code 3056, the Secret Service has the authority to protect the president however they deem necessary, with or without his consent.

Dan explained that the severity of the White House riots, which resulted in at least 50 Secret Service agents being injured, would very likely have warranted overriding the president's preference on whether or not to take shelter.

"Shame on the media ... for painting this as some kind of situation where Trump ran like a coward," Dan said. "Which is totally false and made-up. [...] They're morons. These are imbeciles with double digit IQs who are only in this to aggravate an already-bad situation. And it's a shame, because they're really incentivizing this kind of stuff to happen."

He also made it clear that the so-called protests over the death of George Floyd were actually "very strategic" riots organized by "Antifa terrorists."

"It was not even a protest. It should have been, and could have been ... but that's not what it was. It was an insurrection. It was a riot," Dan stated.

"I can tell you, from sources of mine that were there, [who are] more than credible and unimpeachable, that the attack at the White House -- and that's what it was over a period of days -- was very organized. It was done using very strategic tactics," he added. "I want to be crystal clear, this was organized by Antifa terrorists. It's not a joke. It's not hyperbole. These were people that were committed to an insurrection that was thankfully put down."

The media has been trying to discredit BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer after he recorded a disturbing video of a man being brutally beaten and stoned almost to death by rioters Saturday evening in Dallas.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to set the record straight.

"The very dishonest far-left media is working tirelessly at the moment to completely, not only discredit myself, but they always say, 'Elijah Schaffer who works for Glenn Beck's BlazeTV.' As if that's an insult. So I'm going to clear the air right now," he told Glenn.

"There was a group of about, I would say 150 rioters. They were not protesters. They were breaking windows. They broke into a bank. They broke into a bar. They were looting alcohol and partying on the streets while breaking glass. These were not people who were grieving over black lives," he added. "The police had lost control of the city."

Elijah went on to describe the violent scene, detailing the events leading up to the brutal beating of a man who was apparently trying to defend a local bar. Elijah posted a video of the incident on Twitter Saturday night.

*Warning: graphic content*

"Rioters with rocks and bricks and bats and weapons, 150 or more, were accosting him as he stood in front of the bar," Elijah said. "Then they started stoning him, Glenn! Medieval! Throwing rocks and bricks.... We're in America. This is 2020. We do not stone people in the United States of America!"
