Glenn: No ifs, ands, or buts - Obama lied to the American people

On Sunday, the New York Times editorial board defended President Obama’s rhetoric surrounding the American people’s ability to keep their health insurance policies under Obamacare. According to the Times, the President simply “misspoke,” but Glenn is not letting him off the hook quite so easily.

“I want to first go to decoding what this President has said. Here's the conspiracy,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “The conspiracy is the President knew 100 million people are going to lose their health insurance. They have it in their own documentation, all their own studies, but they keep it quiet.”

Not only did the Administration keep that little tidbit under wraps, they actually allowed President Obama to go out in front of the American people and make this promise:

That’s a pretty declarative pledge: If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. But yesterday, during a speech in front of about 200 supporters, the President finally began to walk back those infamous words – adding a very important caveat to the promise.

“There's an ‘if’… He's about to explain that he had an ‘if’ in there,” Glenn said. “Here's the president yesterday.”

“We pointed out [from the beginning], if there is one change to your plan, you lose it… We told you that. We told you over and over again. That's what was in the bill from the very beginning,” Glenn explained. “The reason why [the President] started that is because we were making traction… That's when he said, ‘Look, there are people running around telling you all kind of lies. I'm telling you now, if you have one, you will keep it.’ The man lied to you. He lied to the American people. There are no ifs, ands, or buts.”

“As much as I'm not a fan of this guy, I was actually embarrassed watching him try to walk that back yesterday,” Stu added. “It was a shame for the country, watching our President try to say, ‘You want your insurance you can keep it, if these 14 conditions I never told you about are true.’”

This whole situation circles back to the fact that the Administration had no choice but to lie about the effects of Obamacare on private insurance because the bill would not have passed otherwise. With something like 80% of Americans having reported they were happy with their health insurance before Obamacare, the President needed to tell people those plans they were happy with wouldn’t be impacted… except he knew they would be.

“It would not have passed. 80% of Americans were happy with their healthcare. You are going to lose your health care. We have been telling you that from the very beginning,” Glenn said. “And they are still telling you there are not going to be death panels or doctor shortages… When the doctor shortages come, then the death panels that will come as well. Death panels only come when there's a shortage of things. That's the last line. If you don't want to believe it, then go see and read about what they are doing in the Netherlands. In the Netherlands right now, they have just passed legislation that will allow them to kill children – but compassionately kill them because they have no quality of life. The biggest conspiracy that is out right now is the cover up of the truth.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
