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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
