Flashback: Obamacare communications director tells you ‘the truth’ about keeping your plan

Do you remember all the way back in 2009 when the Obama Administration swore up and down that if you wanted to keep your health insurance plan, you would be able to do so under Obamacare? We now know that certainly is not the truth. But here is Linda Douglass, the former communications director for the White Houses Health Reform Office, addressing the “disinformation” being spread about the effects Obamacare would have on private insurance in August 2009:

Okay, whatever you say, Linda.

When you consider how poorly the Obamacare rollout has gone thus far, one cannot help but theorize that the “glitches” are part of a grander plan to ultimately arrive at the single payer system President Obama and others in his Administration have been on record saying they desire. On radio this morning, Glenn expanded upon that theory using the President's own words.

“When we said this before, it was all theory: Look, they are going to create a system that will collapse and it will force people out of the insurance companies because it will force them to raise their rates because it's telling them exactly what you have to have to be compliant. And so you will pay too much. You won't be able to afford it. And it will force you into a single-payer system,” Glenn said. “That's what we have. And we have the president on tape saying it. And everybody said, ‘You're a conspiracy theorist.’ No, that's what the President said.”

Glenn proceeded to play a compilation of some of the President’s remarks on the issue:

“There it is: ‘But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately.’ So we have to take steps and so here it is: We've taken the step through Obamacare,” Glenn explained. “You can keep it, you can have it, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your insurance, just pass this bill, just pass this bill, just pass this bill. Well, what's in the bill? ‘Just pass the bill.’ And then when you have the bill, ‘We've got to change the bill, but we're going to change it through HHS. We're not even going back through Congress because we're not going there again. We'll just change it through HHS.’ That's not been done before. Understand that's new. That makes the President a dictator. When he can change the law without going to Congress that makes him an authoritarian leader. Not been done before. But they do it anyway and nobody seems to care.”

So if Obamacare is the first step toward a single payer system, what comes next?

“You get this website, you have to be in it, you start getting your cancellation notices, and what's he going to do… The next person that's going to take the fall is these evil insurance companies,” Glenn continued. “‘They’re just jacking up the rates.’ Well, the reason why they're jacking up the rates is because they have to comply… They also have to have other things like have to have everybody in. You can have preexisting conditions. Well, how am I going to do that and stay open? I can't. It will collapse the system… He will next go after these evil insurance companies that have raised rates. He's collapsing the system. That's what's happening.”

“They've designed this to do exactly what is happening,” Glenn said. “Stop with the incompetence of the most educated man in the history of the world. Stop thinking he's incompetent. Stop it. He's not. It's all part of the plan. When he admits he's totally incompetent, I'll believe it.”

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."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
