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?”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
