Glenn Beck: Obama's 'typical white' grandmother



If you're a bitter typical white person clinging to God and your guns...then this is the t-shirt for you. Get yours today.

GLENN: ‑‑ to the ‑‑ what did Sarah Palin call the death panels? You laugh all the way to the death panels. Go ahead. Laugh all you want, America.

Let me give you this from Bloomberg today. President Barack Obama has said his grandmother's hip replacement surgery during the final weeks of her life made him wonder whether expensive procedures for the terminally ill reflect a sustainable model for healthcare. The president's grandmother, the up with ‑‑ what did he call his grandma? Here, I have it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person who if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, there's a reaction that's been bred into ‑‑

PAT: Bred into her, scared.

GLENN: Hatred was bred into his typical white person grandmother.

PAT: It's in the white person DNA.

GLENN: So President Obama said his grandmother's hip replacement surgery during the final weeks of her life made him wonder about the expensive procedures for the terminally ill, if they reflect a sustainable model for healthcare. The president's grandmother had a hip replaced after she was diagnosed with cancer. Obama said in an interview with a New York Times magazine that was published today. Dunham, who lived in Honolulu died at the age of 86 two days before her grandson's election victory. "I don't know how much that hip replacement cost..." wow, he should have figured that out. I mean, isn't he ‑‑ two days before the election he was a millionaire then. He should have just paid for grandma's hip replacement. If he was worried it was a sustainable model, I mean, why didn't he just ‑‑ he's a millionaire. Why didn't he take her out of that evil health insurance thing? You know, for instance, I don't believe Rush has health insurance. I think Rush just pays for it. You know, you're a millionaire. Why not just pay for it, Barack. And especially your grandmother. He said, I would have paid out of pocket for that hip replacement just because she's my grandmother. He didn't. But he would have. Obama said, "You just get some very difficult moral issues when considering whether to give my grandmother or everyone else's aging grandparents or parents a hip replacement when they're terminally ill. That's where I think you've got to get into some very difficult moral issues."

PAT: Like what?

GLENN: The chronically ill and those toward the end of their lives are accounting for potentially 80% of the total healthcare bill out there. Not just the terminally ill. Now he's moved it from his grandmother to the terminally ill, which she was, to the "And those toward the end of their life." Obama promised during a presidential campaign that healthcare overhaul would be top priority. He said that at a Missouri town hall meeting yesterday he hopes congress will pass healthcare legislation. The issue has been divisive. Finding an answer to that will keep costs down while extending coverage to the estimated 46 million Americans without health assurance has eluded past presidents. Ruthless pragmatism. Obama said that his economic advisors aren't constrained by ideology or connections to former treasury secretary Robert Rubin. "What I have been constantly been searching for is a ruthless pragmatism when it comes to economic policy. When it comes to something like investment banking versus commercial banking," blah, blah‑blah, blah‑blah, blah‑blah.

Okay. Ruthless pragmatism. Stu, can you define that?

STU: Well, I mean, it comes back to specifically I think the things like the disability adjusted life expectancy, when you are not living a quality life, if you are a complete ‑‑ in the complete life system.

GLENN: So in other words, if you have a child, if I can remember the words from, I believe it was Holdren, it's one of the czars, that if you have a ‑‑ no, I think it was Ezekiel. I don't have it in front of me. It's one of the czars to where if you have a person who is so disabled and will not be able to be pulled out of the disability that they don't really count as a productive member of society. And therefore shouldn't receive any healthcare money, that would be ruthless and pragmatic.

STU: Both. It would qualify for both.

GLENN: So we know that he questioned whether or not to give his own mother ‑‑ grandmother, a woman he loved so dearly...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: You know, somebody that he just loved so dearly. He wondered if she should have a hip replacement surgery done at the end of her life. I wonder if he's going to love your grandmother as much.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.

GLENN: And make that decision for you because you can't make ‑‑ as he couldn't make it. He couldn't tell grandma not to have that. He loves her. So that's the problem. Maybe we just need a nanny. Maybe we just need some parent who will make that decision for us because we're too close, as he was. He was too close to his grandmother to make that decision. So maybe we should just have some sort of a panel make that decision for us.

STU: And all of this sound so horrific I think to American audiences because it's so against our culture. But this, it's our culture that's the different one. All around Europe and everywhere else, that's how they make these decisions.

PAT: More pragmatic.

GLENN: Yes, but more ruthless. More ruthless I think we've found over the years. Here's the ‑‑

STU: But that's the reason. The reason we spend more on healthcare is ‑‑

GLENN: Is because we care.

STU: ‑‑ because we care.

GLENN: We care about the elderly.

STU: We spend money two weeks before they die. They don't. They get off. They don't ‑‑

GLENN: We value life in this country and when you start devaluing life, then you're in trouble. You let people make their own decisions. You know there's a lot of ways that you could let the private industry come up with insurance.

Look, why don't you have a 20‑year plan. Rand Paul was on the program and he said have a 20‑year insurance plan. So you buy into insurance, you get it for 20 years. So that way if you get sick or something, they can't take you off. Everybody is the same. They just get a 20‑year plan. Now, as you get older, it's just like life insurance. As you get older, you are going to have to pay more. I mean, it's crazy what we're doing here. It is crazy.

A Russian submarine equipped with a “doomsday weapon” — a nuclear bomb that Russia claims can create a "radioactive tsunami" — has apparently vanished from its base in the White Sea, according to reports.

NATO has reportedly warned that the "Belgorod," a massive nuclear submarine, has "gone missing" from a Russian base in the Arctic Circle, and officials are concerned that Russia could be gearing up to test its advanced weapon system known as "Poseidon" or the "weapon of the Apocalypse."

Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy's newest aircraft carrier, the USS Gerald R. Ford, has suddenly been declared combat-ready after years of setbacks, technology issues, and delays.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed just how powerful Russia's "missing" submarine really is and broke down how these "coincidental" current events mirror those that led up to World War II.

"It's really not a good thing ... but the world has gone through things like this before," Glenn said. "In the end, after it's all over, good things can happen. You just gotta get to the other side."

Did the FBI just get away with the BIGGEST armed robbery in US history?

In 2021, an armed group broke into a U.S. Private Vaults store in Beverly Hills and stole $86 million worth of valuables — the largest armed robbery in U.S. history. That "armed group" was the FBI. Now, it appears that the FBI and U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles "misled" the judge who signed the warrant for the seizure and still haven't returned the stolen goods to the 700 customers affected, according to newly disclosed court filings.

The details of the government’s alleged deception have come to light in a class-action lawsuit by U.S. Private Vaults customers who say the raid violated their rights, the Los Angeles Times reported. The FBI and U.S. attorney’s office denied misleading the judge, and a spokesperson claimed the warrants were lawfully executed.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed some of the shocking story's details and discussed why incidents like this may become more common.

"None of the customers have been charged with any crimes. Not a single customer, out of the 700, not a single customer has been charged with a crime, but they can't get their stuff back," Glenn noted. "And this is going to happen more and more."

"It's incomprehensible that this stuff goes on in the United States of America," Stu said. "If you were to tell me this happened, you know, in Russia, I'd expect it. The fact that the United States government is claiming and just taking stuff from citizens all around the country with no crime, many times without even being charged, let alone ... conviction."

"Listen to this," Glenn continued. "The lawsuit also claims that some of the box holders who came forward to reclaim their seized property were then subjected to another investigation. If you went to the FBI and said, 'I want my stuff back,' the FBI examined their bank accounts, their DMV records, their tax return, and any criminal history checks."

However, box holders who decided to forfeit their property were also suspected of trying to "avoid becoming an FBI target," Glenn noted.

"So, you're guilty if you walk away and you're guilty if you ask," Stu added.

"This is America, gang," Glenn said. "It doesn't seem like it because it's not a constitutional America. But this is the America we now live in, and it is important that you wake up and stand up. ... God's people have got to start standing up, or we'll lose freedom. The world's freedom will be on our heads."

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.
