Glenn Beck: Who Is Advising Obama on Health Care?




Watch Glenn Beck weekdays 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.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
