GLENN: Okay, I would like to know where all the Dr. Mengele's are that are ‑‑

PAT: Boy, there's a lot of them.

GLENN: ‑‑ ripping kids' tonsils out and amputating feet.

PAT: How many people have had their feet cut off because the doctor just wanted to make $30,000, $40,000, $50,000 extra bucks. I wonder. I'd like to see the stats on that.

GLENN: I would love to see the stats on this. You know, President Obama I think came out yesterday, and it's interesting to me that ‑‑ there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. So let's skip that and let's just go to ‑‑

PAT: Good. Wow, was that a first?

GLENN: Yes, I believe it was.

PAT: I believe we just heard a first on the program.

GLENN: Was that a first?

STU: You mean he actually edited himself on the program?

PAT: He actually self‑edited there.

STU: Wow, congratulations.

GLENN: You know what? Let me say this, though. No, no, no, no. On the self‑editing thing, I ask that you please even watch the show or listen to the show and take some notes. Really I'm turning this information over to you. That's why I have the watchdogs. I need you to do your brainwork on it. I need you to spread the message. I need you to be an evangelist for the message. I've asked you before, pray for more time. I don't know why I feel that way, but I do. Pray for more time, please. And take these things down and pass them on. You know, they have a community organized group that has been years in the making. We don't have years. We maybe have, you know, a few weeks, month, I don't know how long. But we've got to organize and we have to be out there. Please pass on the information that you hear on the show. Ponder it in your heart. Pray on it. See if you believe it's true. If it is, please pass it on to other people.

Okay. So I don't know where he's coming up with these doctors, but here's the audio from Pat's audio vault on, I just, I think this is amazing on why we need to have a different system that is not capitalist in nature.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: All I'm saying is let's take the example of something like diabetes, one of a disease that's skyrocketing partly because of obesity.

GLENN: Stop. Stop there for a second. So what is ‑‑ if it's skyrocketing partly because of obesity, what should the government do if we want to control obesity? What does the government do?

STU: Take away all sugar and fat. Ban them.

GLENN: They are going to have to control what you eat.

PAT: Yep, yep.

GLENN: Or you are going to have to be ‑‑ I'm sorry, but you are a fat, fat fatty, and they do this in Japan already. They measure your waist. If you don't ‑‑ if you are too fat, you don't get the healthcare. You've got to get yourself under control.

STU: Exactly. Just like the guy who in England who drank too much, so they didn't give him the liver he needed.

GLENN: Exactly right. But he was 21.

PAT: But to the question, what should the government do? Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing.

PAT: Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing. Okay. So now that you've just seen a seed planted: Because of obesity, diabetes is skyrocketing. Understand that that comes, if they are now in charge of who gets care and who doesn't get care, they are now in charge of that; well, they are going to have to, they have to cut costs. So we better regulate the food that's out there. We better regulate what you eat. And if you're in shape ‑‑ if you don't exercise, well, then you are not going to get healthcare. Don't think it's not coming. All right. So here's the rest of it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Partly because it's not treated as effectively as it could be. Right now if we paid a family ‑‑ if a family care physician works with his or her patient to help them lose weight, modify diet, monitors whether they are taking their medications in a timely fashion, they might get reimbursed a pittance. But if that same doctor ‑‑

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Have you ever heard the phrase that you see the things inside of you, you know? And I know this to be true. I see things in people sometimes and I recognize them. I can recognize arrogance because I have been an out‑of‑control egomaniac for much of my life. Hopefully I have shed most of that. But I can recognize it in somebody that their ego is going to destroy them because I have been destroyed by my ego.

Have you noticed, have you noticed how many times these people are equating people who are healthcare providers with people who will do evil things for money? These are people that are supposed to heal and instead because of their evil greed, because money turns people into monsters, they are willing to do this:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Ends up getting their foot amputated, that's $30,000, $40,000, $50,000. Immediately the surgeon is reimbursed.

PAT: So instead of doing preventative care, which isn't going to ‑‑ you know, and by the way, again not the same doctor. Not the same doctor who's doing the preventative medicine from the surgeon who after the guy who's doing the preventative medicine has done everything he can and then your foot is still, goes gangrenous or whatever it is, then he turns you over to the surgeon who then cuts off your ‑‑ amputates your foot. Not the same guy even. I mean, does he not have that simple understanding?

GLENN: It doesn't make any sense.

PAT: Doesn't make any sense.

GLENN: Doesn't make any sense whatsoever. And if we have a problem with the doctors doing that, then the government should go after those doctors that are doing that.

PAT: And it's not the first time he said it. Remember the tonsil thing.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions ‑‑

GLENN: A lot of times.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‑‑ based on the fee payment schedule that's out there. So if they look, you come and you've got a bad sore throat or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, "You know what, I make a lot more money if I take this kid's tonsils out."

GLENN: Stop. That is just, have you finally lost it?

PAT: Can't take it.

GLENN: Can't take it.

PAT: Can't take it.

GLENN: I can't.

PAT: I feel that way every day about 1,000 times.

GLENN: You know what, play it again and I'll show you where I said I can't take it. Play it again for me.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Doctors a lot of times are forced to make decisions based on demand fee payment schedule.

GLENN: Stop. There it is. The fee payment schedule that's out there. A lot of times doctors, you know, have to do certain things because of the fee payment schedule that's out there.

Stu, do you know who makes the fee payment schedule?

STU: Evil corporations?

GLENN: No, uh‑uh. Hey, Pat, who makes the fee payment schedule?

PAT: The government.

GLENN: What? The government?

STU: Not profiteers?

PAT: Medicare and Medicaid set the fee payment schedule.

STU: No, no, he specifically said they're just out there.

GLENN: They're just out there. The government through Medicare and Medicaid set the fee payment schedule!

PAT: Yep.

GLENN: And then off of that, the insurance companies inflate the number for the capitalist system! The insurance companies are like, well, they will only pay this; we'll do, what is it, like double? We'll do double what Medicare and Medicaid are going to do.

STU: Right. So essentially they charge higher prices to non‑ Medicare participants to make up for the money that they are losing.

GLENN: Exactly right. Exactly right. So if there's a problem with doctors having to do things because they can't afford it, they have this evil desire for money, well, they'll cut people's feet off... I mean, good God almighty, what is this president saying?

PAT: Just for money. Why ‑‑ again we ask this question with the tonsil thing. Why aren't doctors hacked off about this? Why do we have to be hacked off on behalf of all doctors?

GLENN: You know what?

PAT: What is that?

GLENN: You know who's not getting a lot of coverage? Nurses. Nurses are uniting against this stuff. And, you know, I can't take the lies anymore that this is just ‑‑ has anyone in the media asked, "Hey, do you have a deal with the prescription drug companies?" The answer is yes! Do you have a deal with the healthcare industry? The answer is yes! Now, how can you be demonizing these people and yet getting into bed with them?

You know that Robert Reich, a guy who, everything this man says is a nightmare. He is so in bed with this administration and yet he has pulled himself out of universal healthcare, he says, because the Obama administration has made deals with the prescription drug companies that we won't use your buying power against you and hurt you. And so the prescription drug companies went in.

STU: This is after saying over and over again he was going to do all negotiations on C‑Span.

GLENN: When is anyone going to wake up for the love of God. Our country is being destroyed. It has been taken over by liars, thieves, and radicals! When will someone in the mainstream media hold this man's feet to the fire? Pray for more time.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
