Baltimore Ravens accept $130,000 to promote Obamacare

Back in June, it was reported that the NFL and NBA had been approached by the Obama Administration to help promote and raise awareness for Obamacare. When it comes to sports, Glenn is, admittedly, useless, but Pat and Stu were both frustrated by the thought of Obamacare ads interrupting their Sunday football games. Pat went so far as to say he would stop watching the NFL.

This morning on radio, Glenn broached the topic once again because it now looks like at least one NFL team has received payment for its promotion of the President’s healthcare law.

“So I want to know if Pat's going to boycott the NFL,” Glenn said, “because, if I'm not mistaken, he said [he would] if the NFL starts taking money for Obamacare.”

TheBlaze reports:

The state of Maryland is paying the Baltimore Ravens, defending Super Bowl champions, $130,000 to promote President Barack Obama’s signature health care program, according to documents unearthed by a watchdog group.

The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch this week through a open records request, reveal the NFL franchise is being paid by the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange to promote the controversial program riddled with online glitches.

“In consideration for the Products and Services provided hereunder, Sponsor shall pay to the Ravens a total of One Hundred Thirty Thousand dollars ($130,000)(the “Fee”) in cash…” the document says.

“The NFL said, ‘No, we're not interested [in promoting Obamacare],’” Pat explained. “It was the Baltimore Ravens. Yes, so I'm not going to watch the Baltimore Ravens now.”

Stu, however, questioned Pat’s willpower.

“Big Monday night football game – Packers, Ravens – you're not watching,” Stu asked skeptically.

“I’m only watching the Packer portion of the game,” Pat quipped.

While Pat questioned why the Ravens were so desperate for $130,000 they were willing to potentially alienate portions of their fan base, Glenn explained that we live in a world that no longer fears backlash for supporting liberal causes – we only fear backlash of being seen as a conservative.

“There's a lot of people that believe we believe in Hollywood. But they will not say it because it will destroy their career… They know the gates of hell open up against you. But nobody's afraid of the right,” Glenn said. “Either they are not afraid or they have more courage than we do. Which is it? For those of us who haven't put it all on the line, which is it? Is it that they are not afraid of the right, which is what I think it is? Or do they have more courage than we do? Can you imagine the Dallas Cowboys doing an ad against Obamacare? It would never happen. Never happen.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
