Republicans Will Be Blamed for Every Obama Mistake — Including Obamacare

Another Glenn Beck prediction come true?

Back in 2008, Glenn said he wasn't sure if Republicans should be in the White House after Barack Obama. Why? Because they --- and conservative principles --- would be blamed for the impact of Obama's failing policies --- from the economy to military conflicts to health care.

POLL: Who’s the Real Winner With the House Passing the AHCA Bill?

With the passage of the health care bill in the House, Republicans now own Obamacare. One thing's for sure. It's not going to work --- and when it collapses, who will get the blame?

Enjoy this complimentary clip.

GLENN: Anyway, this is, I believe, another prediction just coming through a different way. Remember what I said in 2008? And let's see if Natasha can find it. During the -- during 2008, and I know you'll remember this. I've said 1,000 times I'm not sure if you want the Republicans to be in office after Barack Obama. Why? Because it's -- all the chickens are going to come home to roost. The recession will reveal itself, and it could go into a depression. We could have collapsed. We could have all of these wars coming to roost. All of these things and health care. Health care doesn't work. It's going to collapse. And so it will put the Republicans in a place of having to fix it. They will fix it, and it will fail as everyone will say at the end we tried the great conservative fix, and it failed.

PAT: Which obviously is nowhere near conservative.

GLENN: Correct. Full Marxist principles.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: I've been warning against that since 2008. That's what's going to happen. He's fixed it. It's fantastic. It's wonderful. Our premiums are going to come down. When you -- there's two things that are happening:

First, your premiums are not going to come down. Maybe. Maybe. In some miracle. But this is not going to fix health care. This is going to make health care worse. If your health care bill goes down, your deficit goes through the roof. One of the two. We're going to be looking at $30 trillion in deficit and debt, or we're going to be looking at higher premiums. Most likely, we'll be looking at both. You'll notice they pass this before a CBO score. And one of the reasons why they passed it so quickly is exactly the same reason Obama did. They don't want the CBO score because the Congressional Budget Office is going to say your 8 billion-dollar bailout that the government -- this was the freedom caucus fix. Well, the government will have to make a pool of $8 billion. The speculation is that you're looking at a 50 -- that the CBO will come out and say "You need $50 billion, or that will collapse."

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

COMING SATURDAY: The REAL Extremism Is NOT ‘Conservative’ | Benjamin Teitelbaum | Ep 102

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent."

Gov. Kristi Noem DEFENDS against claims she’s ‘CAVING’ to NCAA on Title IX

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week over claims she caved to the NCAA. Rather than signing a bill banning transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for 'style and form' changes, arguing to Carlson the current version 'wouldn't solve the problem.' Noem joins Glenn to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be 'strategic' in the fight to defend Title IX.

Is FL Gov. Ron DeSantis capable of winning over Trump voters in 2024?

As critical race theory spreads across the country, California recently has approved a new 'ethnic studies' curriculum for K-12 students that are chock full of it. But at least one state is standing up against this poison. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sharply condemned this push to "teach kids to hate our country and to hate each other based on race." So, could a 2024 presidential run be in his future? And, if he does run, will he win over Trump voters?
