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?”

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
