Pelosi grilled by… David Gregory?

NBC News isn’t known for its hard-hitting journalism – especially when it comes to criticizing the Obama Administration – but during an interview with on Meet the Press yesterday, David Gregory took Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to task about Democrats’ lack of accountability.

After a playing a clip of Rep. Pelosi circa June 2009 when she, like President Obama, promised the American people they could keep their plans, if they liked their plans, Gregory asked Rep. Pelosi a simple question: Are you accountable for saying something that turned out not to be correct.

Rep. Pelosi’s answer wasn’t quite so direct:

PELOSI: Well, it’s not that it’s not correct, it’s that if you want to keep it and … it’s important for the insurance company to say to people, this is what your plan does: It doesn’t prevent you from being discriminated against on the basis of preexisting conditions, lifetime limits, annual limits, and the rest.

For his part, Gregory once again probed the Congresswoman for a more direct answer:

GREGORY: There's a bottom line to this which I think people understands and the President has acknowledged, which is the government has decided there have to be minimum standards there are minimum requirements in any healthcare plan.

But, once again, Rep. Pelosi dodged the question:

PELOSI: If you had your plan before the enactment of the law in 2010, if you had your plan before, there is nothing in the law that says you have to — but again, we can go back and forth on this.

“Isn't it interesting a man who speaks French as well as David Gregory does [is] just starting to be outraged by this whole thing,” Glenn asked. “Because I believe you were mocking us when we brought this up. This was the plan from the very beginning. We told you this would happen because it would say ‘minimum standards’ and ‘maximum standards.’”

While there is plenty of outrage surrounding the cancelation of insurance policies, Glenn explained that an even bigger whammy is coming down the pike for people whose insurance has not yet been canceled.

“What you haven't heard about – because they haven't kicked in yet – is anybody who is getting a health insurance,” Glenn said. “I mean right now for everybody in Mercury, they get their health insurance. Everybody loves it. Well, we don't know if we're going to be able to afford it for the next year and the year after – definitely not. The fines haven't started in yet! So even if the insurance company doesn't raise our rates, which, fat chance, even if they don't do that, I'll get fined, what is it, like $7,500 per person or something like that because my insurance is too good.”

“That's the Cadillac tax you're talking about,” Stu clarified. “It's significant. I don't remember the exact number… On the Cadillac side of it, you look at someone who has too much. See Glenn, you give healthcare that's too good. Other people don't have healthcare this good, therefore, you should not be able to give it… Another way to soak the rich.”

“So what they do is they say because I have 300 employees that I give the best coverage out there – not that I can afford, but the best out there – because 300 people have that and others don't have that, they want to make sure that I am penalized,” Glenn explained. “And I pay for other people who I don't know, who don't work for me. I have to pay for somebody else's insurance. It is craziness.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
