Congress’ Pharmacist Implied Some Lawmakers Have Alzheimer’s – Now He’s Backtracking

What happened?

Mike Kim, owner of the pharmacy that delivers prescription medications to members of Congress on Capitol Hill every day, seemed to let some big secrets slip during an interview with Stat News on Wednesday about his job.

Give me the exact quote:

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country.

“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

This doesn’t look so great.

Right. And it’s raising some big questions like “do Americans have the right to know when their lawmakers’ memories are slipping?”

Kim is attempting to take charge of the story with a follow-up quote, saying, “I am not aware of any member that actually has Alzheimer’s and would certainly not disclose any such information if I did know… patient privacy is a very serious matter that I am committed to upholding.”

GLENN: How would you like to have one of those old-fashioned pharmacies? You know, one that would deliver the medicine right to your front door, your office, whenever you need it. It would pretty cool, wouldn't it?

And all you would have to do is become an elected member to Congress. That's it.

For the last 20 years, the oldest pharmacy in Washington, DC, Grubb's Pharmacy, founded in 1867, has been the exclusive provider for the members of Congress. Mike Kim is the owner of Grubb's Pharmacy. He appreciates the uniqueness of what he gets to do. He gets to fill the pill bottles of all of the revered lawmakers. And he's used to knowing all the nitty-gritty details about the medicinal needs of the Schumers and the Pelosis and the McConnells of Congress. No big deal.

He told a reporter this week, at first it's cool.

Now, think, why would this guy say this? Why would he say this to a reporter, knowing that there will be consequences to his business?

At first, it's cool. And then you realize, I'm filling drugs that have some pretty serious health problems attached to them. And these are the people running the country, end quote.

What kind of problems are we talking about? According to Kim, just your run-of-the-mill serious health problems like, quote, diabetes and Alzheimer's.

Alzheimer's? Quote, it makes you kind of sit back and say, wow. They're making the highest laws in the land, and they might not even remember what happened yesterday. End quote.

Kim took some flak for his admission that he fills Alzheimer's medicine prescriptions for some members of Congress. Later, he did do some backtracking, saying that the illness that he listed was meant as a hypothetical. I'm not aware of any member that actually has Alzheimer's. And would certainly not disclose any information if I did know. Except, he just basically did that.

As their employer, we have a right to know about the people who are running our country. Why would Mr. Kim say these things? Why?

It's sad that some may have actual health problems. But we have a right to know if any member of Congress or the Senate doesn't exactly remember what might have happened yesterday.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.

DEADLY Negligence: Exposing the REAL Origins & Coverup of the COVID-19 Pandemic

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.
