- 45% Of Doctors Would Consider Quitting If Congress Passes Health Care Overhaul

GLENN: From high above Times Square, third most listened to show in all of America. Hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. I don't even know where to begin. We've got one of the top two things, Pat, we were just talking about here. We have

PAT: The healthcare, I thought the healthcare, the Investors Daily

GLENN: Investors Business Daily.

PAT: The Investors Business Daily poll was amazing.

GLENN: Stunning. If you don't know what this is, this is a new poll that has come out that said if this healthcare bill passes, what was it?

PAT: 45%.

GLENN: 45% of doctors will just say, see you. Now, a lot of people are just going to say, oh, that's ridiculous; they are just saying that. Have you talked to your doctor about what the government is planning on doing? And in particular you should talk to specialists. Specialists are the ones. Your GP may stay, but your specialist, especially the really good ones, the ones that have, you know, they're at the top of the field, gone. They won't put up with it.

PAT: There's no reason to continue to practice when you've gone to school for 20, literally 24 years in the cases of the specialist and then, you know, you come out expecting to make a good living, and they are. But you're not going to work for minimum doctor wage.

GLENN: No, no, no.

PAT: After doing all that.

GLENN: And what they are doing with the schools and everything else.

PAT: All of it.

GLENN: I mean, I talked to a surgeon the other day and this is one of the top five surgeons in the world. This guy, there's this is the guy when, you know, they have, you know, a four headed baby born with only one arm, this is the guy that flies in and does the surgery.

STU: You don't want a head to arm ratio like that.

GLENN: No, you don't.

PAT: This is the guy Brad Pitt was born that way. This guy fixed him.

STU: Really?

GLENN: He's that good. He's that good.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Can you imagine if you have something in your eye and you only have one arm and you

STU: That's terrible.

GLENN: You know what I mean? You've got eight eyes, you're like, ahhhh!

STU: And then this guy comes in and he makes you look like Brad Pitt.

GLENN: Right, exactly right. That's how good he is. He was sitting in my office and he said, Glenn, there's only about five of us that do what I can do, and he said, I don't

STU: (Inaudible).

PAT: It came off. You were there.

GLENN: He's a very humble man, very humble man. He just knows what he does and he knows how rare it is. People come I mean, he showed me a stack of letters that, you know, people write him from all over the world: Please, please continue.

PAT: And he makes a lot of money. But what he also said was I donate about a million dollars worth of stuff every year.

GLENN: Every year.

PAT: Of my services.

GLENN: He said, I do stuff. People will write me and, you know, they will be from you know, whether it's Kentucky, New York, England, wherever. And he said, they can't afford it. They just can't afford it. And he said, I do a million dollars worth of my services every single year. I do operations for free. And we were talking about it and he said, people like me will be gone. He said, now, some of us may stay because we care about people, but you will not be able to replace me because the system won't be there. People are not going to go to school for 24 years. And then he how many years did he have to apprentice for what he was I mean, for years!

PAT: Yeah, long time.

GLENN: Years he was working under the tutelage. And he's like, you know, I do it because I love what I do, I do it because I care. But I also am a very wealthy man. There is you know, there are tradeoffs.

STU: Profit motive.

GLENN: I know. How many times have we said I mean, I just gave a speech the other day and I said, I meet millionaires and billionaires every day. But most of them don't know that they are. Most millionaires have no idea they could be a millionaire. Most billionaires don't realize they could be a billionaire. And the thing that they don't realize is they always have something in you know, it was like, well, you know, I I want a... whatever. And they have some weird quirk that just pushes them off to the side that they won't, that they won't get passed. Now, most of them then become bitter, against me, this won't happen, whatever. That's the system. You are making a choice. You can adjust and you can make the adjustments in your life to be able to do that, or not. The adjustments in my life really come from time. Are you willing to do the things and spend the time that is required? If you are, great. If you're not, fine. Most of these doctors will not give up their life without also the benefits. I mean, we all work hard, and I know you do, too. If somebody says, hey, you're going to work for as hard as you're working right now, but you don't get to have that one vacation because you're not going to make enough money, you are not going to be able to have that one vacation or that one thing that you save up for all year or that you really like. You know what mine is right now? A big bowl of ice cream. That's why I'm the fattest man in the world. I work my brains out every day. I give up a lot. I do a lot. I'm tired all the time. My wife says, you are going to pop. And I'm like, I might. But this is the one moment of my day I love. I want a bowl of ice cream.

STU: It's depressing and it's sad, but you're right. It's so true, though.

GLENN: We all want whatever it is. Some people, it's I want to be rich and live on an island some place. Mine's a bowl of ice cream. I'm not giving it up!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: And if the government says you've got to stop eating so much ice cream, then I ain't doing the rest of it because life ain't worth it without a big bowl of ice cream at the end of the day.

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: This half hour brought to you by Coldstone Creamery.

When Bevan Cooney — the former "junior" business partner to Hunter Biden and Devon Archer — went to jail in 2019, investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer thought he'd never gain access to the damning emails Cooney had promised. That all changed three weeks ago when Schweizer was given complete access to Cooney's gmail account.

Schweizer joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to describe just some of the business deals revealed within these emails — like Hunter working with an alleged Russian criminal and with Chinese communists to secure their assets, or to secure one-on-one time with his dad, then-Vice President Joe Biden. And all of this new information is completely separate from the emails allegedly discovered on Hunter Biden's laptop recently reported by the New York Post.

"So, I want to make this clear. This [Cooney's emails] has nothing to do with what's on the laptop … It didn't come from [Rudy] Giuliani. It didn't come from anybody else, right?" Glenn asked Schweizer.

"That's absolutely correct," Schweizer confirmed.

He briefly explained how Cooney, a former Los Angeles nightclub owner, is currently serving a prison sentence for his involvement in a fraudulent business bond scheme with Biden and Archer. From prison, Cooney gave Schweizer written permission to access his Gmail account.

"This is really important," he noted. "We're not looking at printouts. Not looking at PDFs. We're actually in his Gmail accounts themselves, sifting through these emails. And there's a shocking amount of information about deals involving China, involving Russia, involving all sorts of things they were trying to pull off."

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

Watch the video below to hear Glenn's message for all the Trump-haters who have forgotten Trump's accomplishments, or you can read Glenn's list HERE:

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.
