Glenn Beck: Is massive Health Care plan reparations?


Glenn Beck's Common Sense


Available in book stores nationwide...

GLENN: First of all, let's just say this. This is a sensitive topic. Things in this monologue are going to be taken out of context and, you know, I'm going to be deemed a racist, and I don't care anymore. Say whatever you want. Let the chips fall. I know the truth. My family knows the truth. My friends know the truth. Whatever. There are strong feelings on both sides about reparations. I know you won't be surprised to hear that I'm opposed to reparations. To me ‑‑ hold on, rightwing zealot alert here ‑‑ there are eternal principles at stake. Or if you prefer, you can call them universal principles because that's in vogue now. First it's universal college, universal healthcare, universal government. If I just say it's a universal principle, maybe Obama can get behind it. But one of my fundamental beliefs in my faith is that I am not accountable for anybody else's sins. I'm only accountable for what I do. One of the things that drives me is I'm not accountable on whether you see the truth, don't see the truth, save yourself, don't save yourself. I am accountable for what I do. And if I see something and I don't warn you, then I am accountable for everybody that I didn't warn. However, if I warn them, that's your deal, man. You don't have to follow. You don't have to pay attention. You can reject it because you know what? Maybe I'm wrong. But if I believe it, I need to say it.

I'm not accountable for anybody else's sins. Not my ancestors, not my family's, not even Adam's. I am only accountable for what I do and that is something that I believe to my very core. But why is Barack Obama supposedly opposed to reparations? He doesn't share my faith. In fact, he attended a Black Liberation Theology church for 20 years. Black Liberation Theology teaches it is the white man that has kept you down. It is the white man that you must take money from, you must take power from to make up for the past. So that doesn't fit. Did he suddenly come down with that case of 24‑hour logic and reason that's not coming around Washington? No. He and everybody else has been immunized. So there's no chance of that. Did he realize suddenly that if he weren't to pay out reparations ‑‑ or if he were to pay out reparations to millions of African‑Americans that that would throw the door wide open to the Native Americans as well? And they wouldn't just want money. They want their land back. And the rest of us would all be on boats headed back to the mother land. The problem is I don't know what the mother land is anymore. Every country on Earth has been populated by people who are not indigenous to it. Every country on Earth has been bought, appropriated, conquered, stolen. I mean, I guess we could find the original bush or the original cave, you know, in Africa or Babylon where we first crawled out of and called it home, try to jam six billion people into it. The environmentalists would love it because it would be great for the rest of the planet, but they would be talking about how the cave life there for six billion would be unsustainable and bad for the bats.

So I'm guessing that's not why Obama claims he opposes reparations. Neither is he concerned about repairing other wrongs done to other groups of people. For instance, I think the Jews could make a pretty strong case against Germany for the whole World War II thing, you know. Not to mention Egypt, 400 years of bondage. But wasn't Barack Obama over there just now in Egypt blaming Egypt's problems on the Jews? What about reparations for slavery of the Egyptians enslaving the Jews? And on top of that, they've had to deal with Barbra Streisand. Can't we leave these people alone? Then there's the ethnic Albanians, the Kurds, the Tootsies, the Hutus, the nonmajority population of Darfur, the Cambodians. Nearly every other ethnicity that has ever arrived on the shores of this country has been at first beaten down. How about the Irish? Does Ted Kennedy's family need reparations? How about the Asians that built the railroads in slave‑like conditions? Do they need reparations? How about faith? How about the Jews? How about the Mormons? Does Mitt Romney, does he need reparations? He seemed to do pretty well for himself even though his faith, the people in his faith in the 1850s, same time as slavery, killed, tarred, feathered, dragged from their homes, beaten. Their homes their places of worship burned to the ground, chased by mobs in every place they settled starting in New York all the way across the country. The U.S. Army was sent in to attack them after they arrived in a city they called home. They decided not to when they got there. In Missouri the governor of the state issued an extermination order against them in 1838. An extermination order. It is the only one in the history of the country where it was legal to kill a group of people, and it wasn't rescinded until 1976. Did they receive reparations? No. All they got was Donnie and Marie and Harry Reid. These people can't even drink their way into drunken stupors to forget their troubles. They moved on. But none of that enters into Barack Obama's thinking. He doesn't even consider the 360,000 union troops killed in the Civil War as debt paid. And don't even think about asking him about affirmative action. That wasn't any kind of reparation. Neither was Black Entertainment Television, Black History month, United Negro College Fund, the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, RainbowPUSH Coalition, 100 Black Men of America. None of these things could exist for whites. And Obama couldn't care less. It's not about doing the right thing and uniting.

Could it be that Obama realizes the incomprehensible nightmare that reparations would present to the country, things like who would pay, how much? Do all whites pay? Even if they can prove their ancestors weren't slave owners, weren't even here at the time? Would Hispanics and Asians pay? If so, how? How much? Maybe just the rich white would pay, say another 9 or 10% surcharge. What the heck. They can afford it. They don't even work for their money. They've been handed everything. These people don't work. They wake up in the morning. They tell their servants, "James, go out and pluck me some cash from my magic fairy money tree in the yard. I say $2 or $3 million should be enough for today. And then get out of my sight, you nauseate me. You have the sniffles? Oh, we should exterminate you."

Would Great Britain pay since this was their colony at the time slavery was instituted? How about the Dutch for their involvement? For that matter, what about the ancestors of black African slave traders who sold their own people in Africa in the first place? Then there's this question: Who would receive the money? All blacks? Or just those directly descended from slaves? Would Barack Obama, whose white mother was from Kansas and black father from Kenya? I know the story. I've only heard it more than I have heard about John McCain's war stories! Wait a minute. His father was not a descendant of slaves and his mother was white. So maybe Michelle Obama would be the only one that should be able to get the cash. Since Obama is half white and half black, would he pay and receive?

See, these are the tricky questions. But then again, they have nothing to do with Obama's objection to reparations. Obama is against direct reparations for one reason. He doesn't ever want the victim card to be lost. In 2004 he wrote, "I fear that reparations would be an excuse for some to say we've paid our debt and then avoid the much harder work." What is the harder work? What is the harder work? You don't want the debt paid because you don't ever want the leverage gone. The debt can never be paid. Instead he has a better idea. Universal healthcare and that's just the beginning. That's only one piece. Universal healthcare.

Let me ask you this: The green movement, how come his green jobs czar is a black nationalist? A communist black nationalist. A black nationalist again is the same kind of thinking of Jeremiah Wright. What does that have to do with green jobs? How was he a black nationalist militant, become communist, anarchist and then find the eco movement and then say this is the job for me? Because the green jobs czar isn't concerned about the planet. He's concerned about reparations. He's concerned about leveling the playing field. Universal healthcare is the next step. It's a much less obvious route to reparations. And if you think that I am making this up or this is just some conspiracy theory, this is what I was reminded of yesterday when I was walking down the hall and I looked at Stu and I said, didn't we do a monologue on that? Didn't he say something during the election that we did a monologue on and I said, look at this? This is what we found. Quote from Barack Obama: If we have a program, for example... he had rejected universal healthcare because ‑‑ I'm sorry. He had rejected reparations because reparations didn't go far enough. But if we have a program, for example, of universal healthcare that will disproportionately affect people of color because they are disproportionately uninsured, if we've got an agenda that says every child in America should get, should be able to go to college regardless of income, that will disproportionately affect people of color because it is oftentimes our children who can't afford to go to college.

Barack Obama is setting up universal healthcare, universal college, green jobs as stealth reparations. That way the victim status is maintained. And he also brings back back‑door reparations.

This would be crazy if he hadn't stated it himself. And if you couldn't pick up an organizational chart of the Democratic health plan and find next to the national coordinator for health the Office of Civil Rights and Office of Minority Health. I don't know if minorities are sicker than the rest or need different ‑‑ do they have different medicines for minorities? This wouldn't make sense. If in the health bill it didn't state that colleges that had a reputation and had an aggressive minority acceptance level in medical school that they would have better access to money, more access to money and a better partner. But don't worry. African‑Americans will get the reparations and if you are Jewish or you are Mormon, we'll play Barbra Streisand or Donny and Marie for you this morning and that should put a little salve on the old wounds.

Glenn Beck: One TERRIFYING thing is clear no matter who caused the Nord Stream pipeline leaks

Evidence strongly suggests that the Nord Stream pipeline leaks were the result of sabotage, and U.S. and European officials have been working to discover who could be behind the explosions that damaged the natural gas pipelines running from Russia to Germany under the Baltic Sea.

Was it Russia? Ukraine? Germany? But no matter who carried this out, it has put the entire world in grave danger, because if this is indeed an attack, it means that non-military key infrastructure outside Ukraine is now on the "target menu," warned Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It is so important for you to understand, this is now a non-military key infrastructure that has been destroyed," Glenn explained. "If Russia thinks we did it, they've already said, 'Nukes are now on the table.' That gives us a green light to use nukes," he added.

"This is non-military key infrastructure outside of the borders of Ukraine. To date, as far as we know, combat targets were either in Ukraine, or were military targets hit inside of Russia by Ukrainian Air Force or special forces. But the target menu now includes key civilian infrastructure: electricity, water utilities, energy production. That makes Russia more dangerous than ever. And that would be true no matter who carried out the attack," Glenn stated.

Now, the Russians are saying the Unted States did it, and the U.S. is saying it was Russia. But no matter who carried out the attack, "We are facing a Cuban Missile Crisis," said Glenn.

"This could end up being the biggest story of our lifetime and ... if it isn't played calmly by every side, this could be World War III," he continued. "Russia has already said that this gives them the right to use nuclear weapons as soon as they find out for sure who did it. That would be catastrophic, absolutely catastrophic."

The White House can try to spin inflation all day long (and it's trying very hard). But you feel the effects of President Joe Biden’s disastrous leadership every time you go to the grocery store or fill up your car. The American economy is on the brink of disaster after less than two years of a Democrat-controlled Congress and White House. And they’ve got plenty more destruction in the works.

The bottom line is they WANT you to get used to a lower living standard. So, what do you do? How do you prepare? What will food and fuel cost in the months ahead? What would the next Great Depression look like? How are you going to feel the effects of ESG and the Left’s war on oil?

On Wednesday night's "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck brings in a panel of economic experts to answer those questions. He’s joined by Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” and Jim Iuorio, a small business owner, stockbroker, and managing director of TJM Institutional Services. While both forecast the worst-case scenario for average Americans, they also offer a glimmer of hope to get us out of this mess.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.
