‘He’s not conservative; he’s honest’: Hollywood & the media speak out against Obamacare

The Obama Administration has long enjoyed a love affair with the media and Hollywood, but the infatuation has slowly waned. Jon Stewart did not hold back in his scathing critique of Obamacare. The mainstream media has begun asking tougher questions (some of the time anyway). And on radio this morning, Glenn offered two more examples of “honesty.”

“Well, the Obamacare [website] fix isn't really fixed,” Glenn said. “But Chuck Todd has an interesting point of view on this.”

During an appearance on Sunday’s Meet the Press, NBC News’ Chuck Todd pointed out why one tiny phrase used in an Obamacare press release undermines the “whole idea of government as a solution.”

“While there is more work to be done, the team is operating with private sector velocity and effectiveness, and will continue their work to improve and enhance the website in the weeks and months ahead,” an administration report released Sunday states.

The use of the term “private sector” is what Todd referred to as an unmistakable “indictment” of the notion government can provide solutions.

TODD: That is an acknowledgement that, “You know what? If this was a government operation for a long time and it failed, now we’re bringing in the private sector folks.” I mean, that is an indictment on the whole idea of government as a solution, frankly when you look at this.

“Thank you, Chuck,” Pat said. “Kind of what we, I don't know, have been saying all along, and conservatives have said loud and long forever. The government can't do it well. That's why we keep telling you [to] stop trying to.”

Glenn also shared a tweet from actor Hugh Laurie – best known for his role as Dr. House on the Fox drama House. In the tweet, Laurie offers a scathing diagnosis of Obamacare:

“Is Hugh Laurie… conservative?” Pat asked.

As Glenn explained, whether or not Laurie is conservative is a moot point. He offered an honest assessment of a failing program, and yet we are so unaccustomed to hearing such candor it is assumed he must be of a different political persuasion.

“No, I highly doubt that. I highly doubt that,” Glenn said of Laurie being conservative. “Look at that. One person takes one shot at a failing system and people say, ‘Is he conservative?’ No! He's just honest.”

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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
