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."

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
