GLENN: By the way, can you imagine a country where the government regularly checks on the waistline of you? If you are over 40, I need to check your waist. Excuse me? If you are deemed too fat by the government, you are required to take diet counseling. If you fail to lose sufficient weight, you could face further "Reeducation" and you'll be subject to stiff fines. Now, this is when I think -- this is what I say is coming if we get government healthcare. Because they have a good case. If we're going to take care of you, you have to take care of yourself. If we're going to go out and put out in the pocket, you've got to take care of yourself. And "Put the fries down for you. Not good for you, fatty-fat-fatso. Get on that treadmill or no healthcare for you." And a lot of Americans will say that's good. A lot of Americans will say, "Oh, that's great." A lot of Americans will also say that will never happen, we'll never get into that situation. We're just going to get free healthcare and it will be exactly the way it is right now. Glenn is always reeducation camps, please. I'm going to go for diet counseling and then they are going to force me to get onto a treadmill. It's actually what's happening now in Japan and the Japanese government argues exactly the argument that I have been saying is coming and that is we're paying for the healthcare costs. The British government has banned television ads for eggs on the grounds that they are promoting an unhealthy lifestyle. Egg sellers, you don't have the right to advertise. You're cigarettes. In New Zealand a Welsh submarine cable specialist was banned from entering the country on grounds that his obesity would impose significant costs on New Zealand's health or special education services. So he was not allowed to immigrate to New Zealand until he lost weight. But his wife couldn't lose the weight and so she couldn't get in. Germany, citizens who failed to cooperate are branded as antisocial for costing the government billions of dollars or Euros in medical expenses. So they found yet another demon: The fat people. By the way, I'm only bringing this up because have you looked at us lately? Have you seen how fat we are? Drudge Report said that most Americans, the obese Americans now outnumber the overweight Americans. You can't be a burden to society. Many American cities are now banning restaurants from selling foods with transfats. Los Angeles has proposed a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in south LA. Other California cities banned smoking in private residence. California has outlawed after school as a part of zero-tolerance ban on selling sugar products at a campus. David Paterson, the governor of New York, has proposed an 18% tax on sugar sodas and juice drinks. Appeared that's not in schools. That's everywhere. 18% tax. And state officials have not ruled out additional taxes on cheeseburgers and other foods deemed unhealthy. By the way, I just had the best cheeseburger. Stu, have you seen the cheeseburger that we've been sending out for lately? It's from, like --

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: Good Burger?

STU: That's the biggest hamburger I've ever seen in my life.

GLENN: It is the best hamburger I've ever had. Is that a chain outside of New York?

STU: I don't know if it's outside of New York, but I'm thinking it might be a chain.

GLENN: Oh, Stu, you're a stupid vegetarian. This is worth getting sick over and wretching.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Oh, so good. Good Burger, can you look it up?

STU: Yeah, it's Good Burger NY. So I would assume it is a New York franchise.

GLENN: Unbelievable. We should send these to listeners. We'll just send you a cheeseburger in the mail. You know, Louie's Lunch is the inventor of the hamburger in New Haven. This is the only thing that I can even put in that category. It's that good.

STU: Really?

GLENN: It's that good.

STU: There are five locations, all of them in New York City. Sorry, rest of the world.

GLENN: Well, capitalism, until they shut you down because of obesity and global warming and, you know, you have to pay for that cow tax, you should have one of these. You should go into the Good Burger business. You should get a franchise because they are fantastic. Or you should just do what I do and just go eat them and just get just fat as a house.

 

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
