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.”

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
