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?”

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.
