If Obamacare Is Diet Mr. Pibb, What Soda Is Obamacare Lite?

Repealing Obamacare has been a rallying cry for Republicans since 2009, but the GOP's replacement bill --- Obamacare Lite --- is just a watered-down version of its predecessor. Thursday on radio, Glenn and his co-hosts did a comparative analysis of Obamacare, the new bill and various brands of soda.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Hello, America. Welcome to the program. I would like you to call in right now and just answer this one question: How do you want the Republicans to vote today on health care? Repeal it or reject it? Which one?

STU: Well, is that the choice? Repeal, what?

PAT: It's vote for the bill or don't vote for it. Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah, take the Trumpcare.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And vote for what's -- what you have. Or, you know, negotiate until the last minute, but still take this. Or reject it.

PAT: And if Obamacare was Coke, this is Coke Zero. Right? It's just -- it's Obamacare without caffeine. That's all it is.

STU: Well, Coke Zero has no calories. It's a delicious product.

JEFFY: I love Coke Zero.

STU: So I would not -- the free market is Coke Zero.

PAT: All right. It's tab --

STU: No, Tab is delicious.

PAT: Tab is not delicious.

STU: I have some at my house. They still make it, by the way.

JEFFY: What number should I call, Glenn?

GLENN: 888-727-BECK, Jeffy.

STU: There's actually a weird -- there's a Coke -- there's a product called Coke Life. Have you ever had it?

GLENN: Yes. Yes. It's Stevia.

PAT: What does it do? It gives you life?

STU: Well, sort of. It has -- instead of 0 calories -- a can of Coke is 150 calories. A can of Coke Zero is 0 calories. A can of Coke Life I think is 70 or 90 categories. Maybe 60. Something like that. It's an in between. And you think to yourself, well, why would I --

PAT: What?

STU: Why not have the real one or have the one where you're saying, okay, maybe I'll sacrifice a little taste or whatever and have 0 calories. Why would you go with the one that has 60 or 70 calories?

PAT: And this is what we're saying about this stupid bill.

STU: We got that. There's a great soda reference here.

GLENN: I don't know if we've really found it. Because we're starting with Coke.

This is like starting with MrPibb. You got to start with MrPibb.

PAT: Yeah, you have to start with something bad.

GLENN: You have to start with Diet MrPibb.

STU: Pibb Zero, is that what you're talking about?

GLENN: Yeah. You got to start with Diet MrPibb.

PAT: You actually have to start with a glass urine.

GLENN: And then work up to, what? Urine from the most healthy person you can find.

(laughter)

It's still urine, gang.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

JEFFY: It's healthy, though.

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
