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.”

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.

Disney-owned Pixar's latest animated film "Lightyear" was expected to blast off last weekend, but ended up falling way short of box office expectations.

Box office analysts expected the "Toy Story" spin-off to gross $70 million and $85 million domestically and $50-60 million in offshore markets, despite having been barred in at least 14 countries over a controversial same-sex kissing scene, but the film's total haul worldwide wound up at $85.6 million.

Earlier this year, the controversial kissing scene was apparently cut from the film, but the Disney corporation made a show of reinstating it in March amid outrage over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis' (R) Parental Rights in Education bill.

Now, why would such a woke movie flop at the box office on its opening weekend?

"Blame the fact that it doesn’t appeal to girls, blame Disney+ for stealing family moviegoers, blame the lack of an ensemble Toy Story cast, heck, blame everything as Disney/Pixar’s Lightyear didn’t do its magic by internal studio or industry standards this weekend with $51M, close to a third below its lowest $70M pre-release projection," said Deadline.com.

"Variety" lamented that the film's lofty "ambitions were thwarted by heightened competition from Universal’s behemoth 'Jurassic World: Dominion' and Paramount’s high-flying 'Top Gun: Maverick,' as well as little intrigue to watch a slightly esoteric origin story about Buzz Lightyear."

AV Club guessed that maybe "longtime fans have simply grown up and moved on and/or gotten tougher to please."

Both Vanity Fair and Movie Web seemed to think the problem was with the movie's "high concept premise" of making a film based on a film that was supposed to have inspired the Buzz Lightyear toy in "Toy Story."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray weren't afraid to call out the obvious reason Disney's latest film fell flat: Parents are just tired of woke politics in their children's movies. It's really not that hard to figure out, Disney.
