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.”

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
