Leaked memo shows the Obama Admin knew of Healthcare.gov glitches before Oct. 1 rollout

The Associated Press obtained an internal government document that shows Obama Administration officials were in fact concerned about potential issues with the Healthcare.gov website dating back to September 27 – three days ahead of the rollout.

“I'm going to give you a government document that has just been released by the Associated Press on universal healthcare that is staggering and shows you how little they care about you and how incompetent the government is,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “[This is also] why John McCain was pressuring so hard, why the White House was pushing so hard… to destroy Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.”

The memo suggests members of the Administration were concerned the lack of testing could pose “a high security risk” for both the President and the website.

According to the Associated Press:

The September 27th memo to Medicare chief Marilyn Tavenner said the website contractor was not able to test all the security controls in one complete version of the system.

The memo recommended setting up a security team to address the risks, conduct daily tests and a full security test within two to three months of going live.

“Okay. So first of all, there is your scapegoat,” Glenn said. “The reason why this is a leaked letter from the government is because Marilyn Tavenner, the Medicare chief, is going to be the one that is thrown under the bus.”

When you consider the memo was dated September 27, three days before the rollout of Obamacare and three days before the official start of the government shutdown, the rhetoric that was used by the media and by the left during the shutdown takes on a new meaning.

“This memo… was dated September 27th… You could not have a memo like this coming out [then] because Ted Cruz immediately could have said, ‘The administration themselves are saying that it is a danger to the people's security’ and that would have changed the whole ball game,” Glenn explained. “So you had to have the John McCains, and the Lindsey Grahams, and the John Boehners of the world torpedo them, end it, shut it down, stop it. They had to do it quickly because this was coming out.”

“So the White House knew before Ted Cruz was even standing up and saying, ‘Just give it a year.’ The people internally were saying, ‘That's a good idea. That's a good idea. That's a really good idea. We could use two to three months,’” he continued. “[But] you couldn't let that go on. You had to discredit Ted Cruz and Mike Lee… [because] it was never the intention to actually do things right. It's been about collapsing the system, and the system has to collapse around the world at the same time. This is their way of doing it.”

Despite that rather pessimistic evaluation of the situation, Glenn ended his analysis on a more optimistic note.

“But don't worry. They think they're building a system that will collapse into their hands. I believe God is building a system that will collapse it into free man's hands,” Glenn concluded. “You are not the same person that you were five years ago and neither is the country – good and bad. Does it collapse into their system or your system of freedom?”

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."
