Glenn Beck: Who Is Advising Obama on Health Care?




Watch Glenn Beckweekdays at 5p & 2a ET on FOX News Channel

I'm really going to have to change my thinking around on this health care bill. Now, all of a sudden, reputable doctors are showing up at town halls and, like, totally showing their support for Obama-care!

That was, like, so awesome.

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, finally speaking with a town haller without that pesky cell phone interrupting. And I loved how Lee was so spontaneous — give Sheila a little love!

What a great, unscripted, pure moment; Lee connecting with regular, working people. That's what town halls are all about. Not this conjured-up, hired activist, GOP, fake angry yelling — what did they call it again? "Astroturf," that's it.

You know, I was so moved by the concern of this physician, I thought: Hey, I'll recommend her to my friends in Texas!

But boy, is she tough to find — very tough to find. It's probably because she is not a doctor. Nope, not listed in the Texas Medical Board. She made it all up. And Sheila gave her a big ole spontaneous hug! What are the odds?

Anyway, since Roxana is not as busy as a doctor (because she's not one), I wonder what she does in her free time?

Grassroots city.

Oh, did I mention she's not just some nutty campaigner, she's a Texas Obama delegate?

Initially she was identified in The Houston Chronicle as a physician — when all of a sudden the "Dr." part of her name disappeared:

First picture: Notice the caption "a physician"?

Second picture: Now it's just "Roxana."

The Chronicle did end up reporting the correction, but could you imagine the national uproar if a conservative lied about something like that? Remember what they did to "Joe the Plumber"? And all he did was ask a question when Barack Obama came strolling, unannounced, into his front yard!

This person actually lies — but the national media is silent. Are they just waiting for the next video of an angry conservative ripping Arlen Specter or is it just that sometimes, the truth doesn't fit the media's script?

Here's the One Thing: While the media doesn't bother looking into fake doctors, real ones are giving the president scary advice.

So, let's talk about one of those real ones: Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel — Rahm Emanuel's brother and health adviser to the president. Robert Gibbs was actually asked about the good doctor and how much pull he has with the president:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you know if the president has ever consulted on health care with Rahm's brother, Ezekiel Emanuel?

ROBERT GIBBS, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: Has he ever?

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Consulted on health care matters.

GIBBS: I think Zeke has talked to — certainly to staff and to others about health care. I've not been in every health care meeting the president has been in.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Here's why that question is important: Because Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel believes that we should calculate the value of a human life and the amount we should spend to keep that life alive.

After Sarah Palin's comments about a "death panel," the left coined a new phrase: "deathers." They are trying to make "deathers" sound like crazy conspiracy nuts who say that the government is going to come to your house and kill you.

But Palin's right: The "deather" part of this bill is already in the U.K.'s National Health System. It's called NICE — though, it's anything but nice. Basically they come up with a number of maximum treatment costs per year to keep you alive.

In a recent interview, "Dr. Zeke" said about 15 years ago he did think rationing was necessary because of cost issues, but has come to change his mind.

Really?

Then why was he talking about it (even in context of an emergency) as recently as January of this year? Maybe reporters should stop not looking into fake doctors and ask old Zeke what his epiphany was.

This is the devaluing of human life — putting a price tag on each individual. The "death panel" isn't a firing squad — Sarah Palin made the point in an inflammatory way. But when you implement a government health system — as they have found out in the U.K. — you are left with no other choice because rationing is inevitable. And they know it.

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.
