President Obama Is Remaking America




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

Let's cut the president some slack on his broken campaign promises.

Yes, he's not allowing five days public comment before signing bills; there are new taxes on people making under $250,000 a year; lobbyists still rule Washington D.C.; the planet is not yet healed.

But let's not nitpick, because there is one promise the president is keeping:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA, 1/20/2009: Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and begin again the work of remaking America.

OBAMA, 4/13/2009: Seize the chance to remake the face of this nation.

OBAMA, 2/17/2009: We are remaking the American landscape.

OBAMA, 1/24/2009: Remaking America.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

Here is the one thing: The president really is remaking America; he's just making it a whole lot crappier — kind of a hybrid between France and Venezuela.

He's taking GM and turning it into Fiat. He's taking the beacon of freedom and turning it into an apologetic, "what-can-you-do-for-me" wannabe European, spread the wealth, socialist wonderland.

Exhibit A: The president's national health care plan.

Nancy Pelosi is proposing to pay for the $1.5 trillion plan by — wait for it — taxing the rich. Anyone making over a $1 million a year will be paying for our government-run health care. Because damn those millionaires, what have they ever done for society besides hoard money?

Like Donald Trump: He'll do anything to get his name on another tower — like hire hundreds and hundreds of construction workers for months at a time. He's so selfish.

John Huntsman is another one of those evil rich guys. He's probably sitting in one of his dozen mansions right now. If he's not there, try him at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, which he created with his own money.

The surcharges and taxes on the rich will only cover about $544 billion of the estimated $1.5 trillion the health care plan will cost America. That pretty much still leaves a "1" before the "point."

Why does Pelosi really want to soak the rich? Here's what she said:

"So it's a millionaires tax… when someone hears '2' (hundred thousand), they think 'Oh, I could be there.' So I want to remove all doubt… You think 'My God, that's not me."

It's not about actual common sense or fixing anything; it's about them convincing you to give the shaft to someone else for the power and control of socialism.

Let's go back to that "1" before the "point": There's still about $1 trillion (about two-thirds of the entire bill) the administration needs to come up with in order to pay for this thing. President Obama says it will come from "savings."

Government and savings? Yeah, right.

One big problem with this little "savings" scheme is that while the feds are "saving," the states get a raw deal. They stand to pick up the tab for any increase in Medicaid eligibility levels, benefits or payments to doctors.

Guess who can't print money to bail themselves out? The states.

Governors are beginning to stand up — both Republicans and Democrats — against this bill. Governor Phil Bredesen, a Tennessee Democrat, said he feared Congress was about to pass "the mother of all unfunded mandates.''

Massachusetts already made the government health care mistake; why do we want to repeat it? The original budget for Romney's "Commonwealth Care" was $472 million. How did that work out for the people of Massachusetts? They ended up spending $628 million — $156 million over budget, only 33 percent over the estimates.

Oops — our bad on that one!

But it should work out well on a national scale; it's only 200 times the size. So, let's take Nancy Pelosi's "soak the rich" idea: If Massachusetts took every dime of Ted Kennedy's estimated $47.62 million net worth, the state would still be screwed.

Which, incidentally, is what America will be if this ridiculous health care bill is passed.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.
