Glenn Beck: Universal Health buried in stimulus?

GLENN: Barack Obama, oh, I feel so much better now knowing that only government can solve this, that only government is capable of shocking the system enough. And I have news for you. I think he's right on that. I think a shock to the system that is coming, really only government can do. There's things in this stimulus package that gravely concern me that we are going to be talking about today. It took about two weeks, and I mean, we have a room called the brain room. 25 people work 24 hours a day, seven days a week just trying to answer questions. That's all they do, just, I e-mail them at any time I have a question. I e-mailed them two weeks ago: I want you to find, what are the hidden things in this stimulus bill. And we've been bringing them to you. It wasn't until yesterday, it wasn't until yesterday that we found the hidden National Coordinator of Health Information Technology. This is in the stimulus bill. Only government can do this. They're going to monitor the treatments, make sure your doctor is doing what the federal government deems appropriate and cost-effective. The goal is to reduce the cost and guide your doctor's decisions. These provisions in the stimulus bill are critical what we can do about healthcare crises. They are right out of the Daschle book. Learn, have the doctors learn to operate less like solo practitioners. So it's going to be a team. It's the collective doctor that you're going to be seeing. And don't worry about -- sure, the insurance companies are already -- do you want your healthcare determined by the insurance companies? The answer is no, never. I don't want to. Every liberal, everybody always says I don't want the healthcare insurance companies making the decision on what happens. Well, you don't have that. You now will have the Obama team. You'll now have governmental doctors and overseers making sure that this is cost- appropriate.

I said to Stu right before I went on, I said you know what's so frightening to me is all of the things that I have been talking about before we even thought Obama was going to be the guy. This is not, this is not about Barack Obama. This is about our country. This isn't about the Democrats, it's not about the Republicans. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of listening to both of them.

I said last night on the TV show, I had some Freshman congressman on and there's another one that wrote during the show and said, oh, if you're going to talk to freshmen, I've got a few things to say. Great, I'm going to have you on tonight. I said last night I am so -- every time I have a politician on my television program or on the radio program, my gut just tells me that you're exactly like me. I find myself not even listening to them. One of the keys of being a good interviewer is actually listening to what people are saying. Every time I get a politician on, halfway through I realize I'm not even listening. I'm not listening. So I've said on the television show, I don't want any more politicians on. I'll have them if I have to have them and this is the new policy, I said last night I'm going to have just the Freshman team on because I'm not going to pull from the barrel anymore. I'm going to start pulling them from the tree. And if the tree is rotted as well, well, I ain't going near that tree. This -- you know, I can't, I can't take it. The things that we have talked about on this program for two years, and I warned you that the Republicans were taking us to this destination. And I said the other side's going to take us there in a jet plane. Well, I didn't know that it was a -- I didn't know that it was a scramjet. They are taking us to a place that you will not want to live in, rapidly. I'm not a guy who's ever said I'm going to move to Canada, but you may have to move to Canada to be able to escape this oppressive government if we don't stand up and wake up soon.

Look, you know, Obama can say, "Well, I was elected on universal healthcare." Where's the debate? You're debating a stimulus package. What you're putting in here is a trap. If this stimulus bill passes with all of the things in it with universal healthcare, healthcare in America as you know it will be over. And I don't mean all of the bad parts. I mean the good parts. It will be over because now you're going to have a governmental overseer deeming what is the appropriate treatment and cost. This is what they do over in England. They're now going back to a private health system because it's an abomination. What frightens me is I can start to see all of the threads that I've told you about. You know, if you've been a long-term listener of mine, you know that I have been saying for a while, I'm sorry, but things come to me and there are these loose threads and they bother me. Will I see the loose threads that have bothered me for a very long time, not about Obama but about our government and they are all starting to now be woven into the fabric. I'm starting to see where they all lead and it ain't some place pretty, gang. And you could say that I'm an alarmist, you can say all the things that people had said about me on the economy. That's fine, whatever. You've never met a guy that wants to be wrong more than me. I'm not saying that these things are coming to pass. I am saying they will come to pass unless we wake up, notice we wake our neighbors up and our friends up. And we don't do it -- you know, I had somebody stop me today and say, "Do you know that Barack Obama is having the military swear an oath to him and not the Constitution?" I said, where did you get that fact? "I just heard it." Don't ever repeat that again. Don't ever repeat that again. "Well, but I -- but that's what I've heard." I don't care what you heard. You could hear a lot of things. "Did you hear that there is a Russian army currently in the craters of the moon with laser guns and they're going to vaporize a ll of America. I heard that." I came back here to verify that that rumor is nothing but a rumor. You're right, it's nothing but a rumor, said by stupid people. Those things must not be said. If it's not true, we must not -- why are we focusing on all the wrong things? How did the Washington Post actually stand there and ask the president of the United States, "What did you think of A-Rod?" Who the hell cares about A-Rod! Who cares about A-Rod? I mean, it's an interesting thing that you can do in your own spare time; is this what the president has to comment on? A-Rod? Why was that ever in front of congress?

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.

I want to talk to you about something that probably didn't make a lot of sense a long time ago. In fact, I can't tell you how many program directors and how many stations threatened to cancel. Or how many calls I got from the average listener saying; What the hell are you even talking about when I talked about, the leadership of Martin Luther King.

I have done everything I can — as much as I possibly can — to teach you about Martin Luther King and nonviolent protests. And I don't think there's anybody in the media who has talked about nonviolence longer and more in-depth on commercial airwaves than me. Preachers, certainly. But commercial airwaves — I don't think anybody has.

Now I think many are beginning to understand why I tried to lay that foundation. I have told you since September 11th that I have this feeling you are going to be the group of people that will, in the end, save the republic.

I've always believed that. I don't know how it's saved. It might just be preserved in our hearts, I don't know. But I believe it now.

I never wanted us to get to this point — everything I've done is to prevent us from getting here. But everybody is so politically tied to their side that no one will let their shields down and actually listen to one another.

And we're at that desperate point now.

You are equipped to save the republic because you at least hopefully have a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And you have at least a basic understanding of American history. More importantly, what makes this audience so phenomenal is that it is the most generous and service-minded audience of any show in America and perhaps the world.

That's part of what continues to be so frustrating about the Capitol invasion last week. Because you're being maligned.

You.

I know who you are. This is the most peaceful, generous, loving, God-fearing, authentic and patriotic audience in America. And you are frustrated and you are tired of being hit in the face and being called bigot and everything else no matter what you do.

I've been called an anti-Semite just in the last 24 hours by everybody, unjustly.

I get it.

You are now being tainted by the actions of complete imbeciles who do not represent you and me. It's not fair. But that's the hand that we're being dealt and God is in charge and He is not surprised.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights.

We know the left's current tactics fail in the long run. Silencing. Canceling. Taking away rights. These are the hallmarks of regime, after regime, after Marxist regime on the ash heaps of history. Now China is still there because they've taken the so-called free market and took the capitalist system and they combined it with their Marxist utopia.

I don't know what's going to happen to the people over there. Especially seeing that our high-tech has joined them to weed out the dissidents. But it's not inevitable that we join them.

And it is going to require us to take a stand. Just not in the way that most people — especially if they're angry — think is most effective. Look at the ratings of BLM. 78 percent of Americans, at the beginning of the summer, thought that they were swell.

That number is in the low 20s now. Why? Because violence doesn't work.

I don't know if you saw the fellowship of the ring, but if you did, do you remember when Frodo said: "I don't want to do this!"

He's lamenting having to face down the evil and he's just one guy. I'll never forget it because it was right after 9/11, that the movie came out. I'll never forget Gandalf's reply. He said: "So do we all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what we're going to do with the time that is given us."

We can't decide what others are going to do. We can't control the dangerous Orwellian darkness that seems to be descending on America. All we can control is our response and strive to lead by example. If you know anyone in your sphere of influence who might be planning to attend one of these armed rallies in the coming days, beg them not to go. Do everything you can to stop them.

That's not a way to take a stand and it will not protect anything you hold dear and it will endanger the republic. It is what the other side wants.

So how do we take a stand?

The first thing I need you to do today is to help lower the temperature. It has been so hard for me not to respond to people on Twitter who have called me every name under the sun because I quoted the leading Holocaust historian last night on Tucker Carlson.

But see, that wasn't an attack on me, that was an attack on Tucker. If you can scare the guests from coming on to Tucker, you destroy Tucker. That's what they're doing.

Do not vent your anger on social media. At this point, it is probably just going to get your account shut down.

I want you to write this down and I want you to keep this in front of you.

Blessed are the peacemakers. For they will be called the children of God.

That means something today, much more than it did six months ago.

Blessed be the peacemakers.

Be a peacemaker.

And this is the hard part, you can't disconnect. Because things are moving too rapidly. You must stay plugged in.

But I want you to reach out to someone in kindness on social media. Encourage someone. Do not engage with the darkness. Be the light in the corner of your world.

You need to be a leader for what is to come.

And I know I'm asking you almost the impossible. I know you're angry and frustrated and it is gut-wrenching to feel that you're powerless to stop your nation from what you believe is sliding into the abyss.

You are not powerless. You are not voiceless.

I believe it too, with everything in me. I wish I was wrong. I hope that I am. I pray that I am. But know this: You are not powerless. You are not voiceless. You may be the only voice that anyone hears. Voices like mine will go away. I am trying to think of what I need to share with you before, God forbid, that ever happens. Because I cannot live with myself if I talked about something stupid politically and I find my voice silenced and then saying, I wish I would have said this or I wish I would have told them that.

You wield more power than you know. Not because of your voice or being able to call your congressman. You're more powerful than you know because you understand the real problem in America. The real problem in America is not political.

It is spiritual.

If you're like me when you get angry, you think that you are going to take on this challenge on your own — you are not being humble. You think you'll fix it. Everything that is happening to us is because we are an arrogant, out of control people.

We must humble ourselves. Please, you have the skill and the strength to endure the fiery darts that are going to come your way or already are. But this is a problem with our hearts.

You cannot reach someone's head without capturing their heart and no one is going to capture anyone's heart through violence.

Start in your own home and then reach out and if you're able, serve your neighbor. If you can, serve your local community. You must be a beacon of light in a very dark place. I'm going to ask you to do something you're really not going to like. And that's how I know things are from God. When I hear something or I think something and I'm like — oh crap, I don't want to do that — and you just know it it's right. You just know it's what God wants. And you're hoping that maybe you didn't hear it.

And it's so horrible. Because it's the last thing you want to do. But God is unlike many of our churches and preachers, He doesn't tell us what we want to hear. He doesn't have to pay for the church or get collection. Or be judged by how many people go.

Rise above the fray, with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

He'll say the same thing and he'll lose whole flocks. And they'll eventually start to go — oh wait, where is the Shepherd again?

But I have to tell you now some things that I want you to do. And they're not new. But I need you to hear me. I am asking you if you want to stand for the republic, I need you first to pray.

Pray like you've never prayed before. Pray for humility. Pray for guidance. Pray for peace. Pray for those people who you think you hate. Because you don't. Because hatred does not come from any good place.

Then I want you go out and serve someone in any way possible. On inauguration day especially, get your family and your children involved. Volunteer somewhere, take someone a meal. Do something to lift the spirits of hospital workers or your local police department.

Help a stranger mow a lawn, fix someone's car, pick up trash on the side of the highway. Do what you can do. But the most important thing is to do it with a sincere heart. And if someone asks you, why are you doing this? Just say, because I love my country.

Rise above the fray with service and love, with malice toward none and charity toward all.

A pre-Inauguration Day plea: You wield MUCH more power than you know youtu.be


Early Monday morning, Amazon Web Services removed social networking platform Parler from its cloud servers. This comes just after Apple and Google removed the Parler app from their app stores over the weekend.

"You can't find them on the internet anymore. They're gone," Glenn Beck said on his radio program Monday.

"This is something I warned you of four years ago ... because a profound technological change is coming," he continued. "I told you, at the time, high tech will need the government, and the government will need high tech. And they will work together to preserve their power and their position. This is what's happening, today."

Glenn said he believes the "far left" has been talking about breaking up companies like Parler for years, and that the Capitol riots provided the opportunity they needed.

"This is not the end of this. This is where the Left is starting," he warned. "Those who persist in standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, those people will be targeted for deletion. You will be hounded, boycotted, fired, ostracized, and de-platformed. And the louder and the more significant and effective your voice is, the bigger the target is on your back.

"But, let me say this: I will never stop standing for freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom to assemble, freedom to keep and bear arms, and all of the rest of the Bill of Rights. That is the American thing to do."

Glenn Beck: This is the REAL Raphael Warnock and our new 'national religion'

Multiple news outlets have called one of Georgia's Senate runoff elections for the Rev. Raphael Warnock, the Democrat who defeated Republican incumbent Sen. Kelly Loeffler.

So, on the radio show Wednesday, Glenn Beck looked into what this "radical preacher" has been saying in the past — and what he'll likely bring to the U.S. Senate in the future.

"Warnock is in one of the most influential and powerful stages of the country. And I use the word 'stage' intentionally," Glenn said. "It's the pulpit. He's the guy who says, if you voted for Donald Trump, well, you're a sinner."

Glenn introduced a video clip in which Warnock asserts:

If it is true that a man who has dominated the news and poisoned the discussion for months needs to repent, then it is doubly true that a nation that can produce such a man and make his vitriol go viral, needs to repent. I know, no matter what happens next month, more than a third of the nation that would go along with this, has reason to be afraid. America needs to repent for its worship of whiteness!

"So, (according to Warnock) you should be afraid," Glenn said. "Oh, and whiteness is evil. And, somehow or another, America has been worshiping whiteness ... see, critical race theory is now our new national religion."
