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.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
