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.

Several months ago, at the Miss Universe competition, two women took a selfie, then posted it on Instagram. The caption read, "Peace and love." As a result of that selfie, both women faced death threats, and one of the women, along with her entire family, had to flee her home country. The occasion was the 2017 Miss Universe competition, and the women were Miss Iraq and Miss Israel. Miss Iraq is no longer welcome in her own country. The government threatened to strip her of her crown. Of course, she was also badgered for wearing a bikini during the competition.

In an interview, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, said:

When I posted the picture I didn't think for a second there would be blowback. I woke up to calls from my family and the Miss Iraq Organization going insane. The death threats I got online were so scary. The director of the Miss Iraq Organization called me and said they're getting heat from the ministry. He said I have to take the picture down or they will strip me of my title.

Yesterday, Miss Iraq, Sarah Idan, posted another selfie with Miss Israel, during a visit to Jerusalem.

In an interview, she said that:

I don't think Iraq and Israel are enemies; I think maybe the governments are enemies with each other. There's a lot of Iraqi people that don't have a problem with Israelis.

This is, of course, quite an understatement: Iraq, home to roughly 15,000 Palestinians, refuses to acknowledge Israel as a legitimate country, as it is technically at war with Israel. The adages says that a picture is worth a thousand words. What are we to do when many of those words are hateful or deadly? And how can we find the goodness in such bad situations?

No political bias. That's the catchphrase you're likely to see blasted all over the news today. The Office of the Inspector General found no evidence that political bias played any role, either with former director Comey or other FBI agents, during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. So is it "all good now"... "carry on"... "nothing to see here"? Hardly. Here are a few of the highlights from the 568 page report.

The report makes it clear that there's no evidence that political bias influenced this investigation, but why did they take five hundred and sixty eight pages to make that point? Well, after reading it, I kind of think they want us to understand how difficult it is to prove political bias. I think the Inspector General wants us to read this report in its entirety, and read between the lines. Here are a few of the highlights.

RELATED: Day of reckoning? Inspector General's report is here.

First and foremost, this report straight eviscerated James Comey. You know one of the most controversial decisions of President Trump's tenure - so far - has been his decision to fire the former FBI director. Let's imagine for a second that Trump never did that and Comey was sitting at his desk at the Hoover Building yesterday. I can almost guarantee you that after the release of this report yesterday, Comey would have been fired by this morning anyway. Here are just a few quotes describing his behavior:

"Extraordinary and insubordinate"... not "reasonable"... "engaged in ad hoc decision making"... "serious error in judgement"

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time.

It goes on and on. This report just destroys Comey's behavior. There's no way he could have remained FBI Director.

The report goes on to analyze the behavior of several FBI agents that were involved in the Clinton investigation. Strzok and Page were but two of five employees that showed questionable behavior, either through text messages or instant messaging. If you read the texts and transcripts, they're pretty damning. In Strzok's case, his bias could have caused a delay in analyzing the contents of Anthony Weiner's laptop. I say again, it could have, but as the OIG alludes… political bias is hard to prove. Another agent that had been caught saying questionable things on an instant messaging service, was actually one of the agents that conducted Hillary Clinton's interview. In that interview, the OIG seems to acknowledge that the FBI had caught Hillary in a lie, and still they let her go. But… political bias is hard to prove.

See the theme here?

So the Hillary train keeps on rolling. She'll escape a courtroom for the fourteen thousandth time. But, as is the common theme for the entire Clinton family, it is those around them that suffer the most. The FBI has been tarnished. People have lost their jobs. Agents have been humiliated. All this for an arrogant and corrupt politician.

Attention earthlings: a "climate emergency" exists. It's official now, because the Berkeley City Council declared it. So, it must be true.

Frankly, you must be living under a rock if you didn't already know that a state of climate emergency exists. And if you don't do something about it, like now, you could be living under a rock very soon. Because according to the foremost authority on climate doom — the Berkeley City Council — this emergency is as dire as World War II.

Council Member Cheryl Davila warns that global warming is driving us toward, "…the sixth mass extinction of species, which could devastate much of life on earth for the next 10 million years."

The city council resolution says:

During World War II, the Bay Area came together across race, age, class, gender and other differences in an extraordinary regional mobilization, building and repairing Liberty ships, converting car assembly plants into tank manufacturing facilities…

The Berkeley City Council says the only way to avert World War II-level disaster is if Americans mobilize in the same way now to confront climate change as we did in 1942 to confront Nazism. Because climate change and Nazism are definitely the same.

It gets worse. The resolution calls our current climate emergency "the greatest crisis in history."

Seriously, their resolution sounds straight out of the Galactic Empire handbook — "mobilizing workers" to build and install "renewable energy infrastructure."

Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years.

Berkeley committed itself to becoming a "carbon sink" by 2030. For the uninitiated, that means they want the city's greenhouse gas emissions to be in the negative. Technically, that means Berkeley will have to completely transform into an Amish community in 12 years. Except they won't be able to use any farm animals, because you know, too much methane.

Becoming a carbon sink is not their only strategy. Their resolution also mentions that earth has too many people screwing up the atmosphere, so we must "humanely stabilize population." Interesting — there were some World War II-era figures also interested in "stabilizing" population. They just forgot the "humane" part.
