Why the change of heart? President Obama referred to Obamacare as ‘Obamacare’ just 2 times since Oct. 1 launch

Remember just days before the October 1 rollout of the Obamacare exchanges when President Obama said one day everyone will want to take credit for Obamacare. During a speech in Maryland on September 26, the President boldly declared:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Once it’s working really well, I guarantee you, they will not call it Obamacare. Here is a prediction for you. A few years from now, when people are using this to get coverage, everybody is feeling good about the choices they’ve got, there are going to be a whole bunch of folks that will say, yeah, yeah, I always thought this provision was excellent. I voted for that thing. You watch. It will not be called Obamacare.

In President Obama’s mind, Obamacare was going to be such an overwhelming success, anyone and everyone would want to take credit for the law and, therefore, would stop referring to it as Obamcare. Well, we know the law – so far – is nowhere near the overwhelming success he promised, but, curiously, the President has stopped referring to the Affordable Care Act as Obamacare pretty much cold turkey. Why the change of heart?

“So Stu said recently, you know, ‘I'm hearing the President say the Affordable Care Act an awful lot where it [used to be] Obamacare over and over and over again.’ And I said, ‘Really? Can you do a real quick chart for me and see what he was saying before the launch and what he's saying now,’” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “And I always say this because he claimed that it was going to be so great that nobody like me would ever call it Obamacare. We would start calling it the Affordable Care Act because it would be so great, we wouldn't want him to get credit. So has he taken his own advice when it turned out that it was exactly what we said it would be: A nightmare.”

To be fair, prior to the October 1 rollout of healthcare.gov, President Obama would oscillate between calling the law Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act. Since October 1, however, his rhetoric has taken a dramatic turn.

“Let's take the past few months,” Stu said. “In July in his speeches, he said the Affordable Care Act 16 times and Obamacare 15 times. So right about even. Again in August, about even. He used the Affordable Care Act 10 times and Obamacare 7 times. Okay? Now we're up to the ramp-up period – September – it's about to launch, the buildup is coming. You might think maybe he has a thought that there's going to be some problems. In September he went 44 times Affordable Care Act, 15 times Obamacare.”

It is what has happened since October 1, however, that is particularly telling.

“So the first two months were about a one-to-one ratio. Then he goes to a three-to-one ratio a little before September. A little odd, a little increase there, however, it's October where it actually launches where he goes to a 50-to-2 – two Obamacare mentions… A 25-to-1 ratio Affordable Care Act to Obamacare.”

Below is a graph that shows the ratio of President's usage of 'Affordable Care Act' versus 'Obamacare':

"He knew in September it was going to be bad,” Glenn concluded. “So here's the thing. He knew it was going to be bad. This verifies that his aides did tell him in advance. He knew in advance. Otherwise why the sudden change, Mr. President?”

The Biden administration wants to fundamentally change our economy and they've made some truly game-changing moves in recent days, but you won't hear anyone in the mainstream media talking about it. If you want to know what the government doesn't want you to notice, pay attention to what the White House releases on Friday afternoons.

Last Friday afternoon — when fewer people would notice — the administration announced a new "comprehensive, government-wide strategy" to overhaul our nation's economy and protect us all from the "financial risks of climate change."

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck reviewed Biden's new climate finance report and explained why he believes the administration's plans to fundamentally change the economy is "the most dangerous movement in the world right now."

Glenn started out by playing a video clip of White House press secretary Jen Psaki telling reporters, "The President wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that" during a press briefing last week.

"That's interesting because what she just said is the exact language, almost a quote, from the people over at the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum," Glenn said of Psaki's statement.

"This is the most dangerous movement in the world right now. It is a direct shot, by a railgun, at liberty. And when I started talking about this, about a year and a half ago, the system went into overdrive to call it a conspiracy. ... This is how they shut people down. They isolate and alienate you by calling the opposition conspiracy theorists. Everything is a conspiracy. Well, there are some conspiracies out there. But you need to know the difference between conspiracy theory and conspiracy fact."

On the morning of Aug. 15, Asma was a free woman in Kabul. She wore Western clothes. Traveled safely alone. Attended college in a neighboring country with the money her parents had saved. By that evening, her entire world had changed.

For the first time in her life, Asma was confronted with the reality of the Taliban. The horror stories she heard growing up were no longer the nightmare of her parents' generation. They were hers, too. Faced with the impossible decision to stay with her family and risk imminent torture or death, she chose to live, and take on the Taliban face-to-face.

Asma's bravery also led to the rescue of over 150 Afghan college women. She tells Glenn she was willing to die before she let the Taliban take her or the other women. But she didn't do it alone. Her sister Azada, helplessly watching the horror unfold from the U.S., quickly turned to her father's contact list. What follows is a miracle evacuation story that ends with a sisters' reunion and hope for a new future. These brave Afghan sisters have a message for those in their home country still trapped, for the leaders of this country, and for the men and women in uniform (and their families) who may believe the American sacrifices for Afghanistan were in vain.

Finally, a note about the other heroes in the rescue story. The movement of the seven buses of college women into the Kabul airport was a chain with about 8-10 links. Had any one of those links not been present or broken, the young women would not have made it into the airport for evacuation, and three young women taken by the Taliban would not have been recovered.

Glenn and his team would like to give a special thanks to Francisco from Arcis International, Wade and Jim from Commercial Task Force, Blaine from E3 Ranch Foundation, Michael and his crew from Kam Air, No One Left Behind, Samaritan's Purse, and Charmaine, Chris, Geno, John, Lori, Rob, Rudy & the Ground Team from The Nazarene Fund.

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.
