Glenn Beck: Couric healthcare poem



Katie Couric healthcare rhyme

GLENN: The CBS Evening News.

PAT: CBS Evening News, here's how she wrapped up.

GLENN: Katie Couric healthcare poem.

COURIC: Just weeks before Christmas and what do you know, Senate Democrats are once again praying for snow. They want 60 votes to start the debate but they're back to square one and they just have to wait, wait for Blue Dogs like Nelson and Lincoln who say a public option would mean the economy sinking. Wait for Joe Lieberman who says it won't pass and hope Mary Landrieu can change her mind fast. The Republican votes right now total zero, but a trigger could make one woman a hero. The moderates from the land way up north could save Harry Reid's Christmas with a deal she brought forth, urging government plans for when private ones fail. To think, both sides happy? Can both sides prevail? At this point no compromise arrives within sight. That means after Thanksgiving, it's on with the fight. Enjoy your turkey and know we'll be here to help make this tough topic just a little more clear.

PAT: Clear.

COURIC: And that's a page from my notebook. I'm Katie Couric, CBS news.

GLENN: Views, CBS views?

STU: Yeah, I thought that was coming next.

PAT: Just like Red Rover, Red Rover, Katie Couric's career is over.

GLENN: What, how is that journalism? How is that journalism?

STU: I mean, she's just trying to be cutesy there.

GLENN: Stop with the cutesy. I'm going to vomit all over my shoes.

STU: That's not a good decision.

PAT: That's decision.

STU: There are many decisions to make with a newscast. That's one of the horrible ones.

GLENN: They have to wait, oh, yeah, they have to wait. Even though the Republicans have zero votes, they have to wait   

PAT: For somebody to be a hero.

GLENN: For somebody to be a hero.

PAT: Now, that was on the same day, I believe, that the Rasmussen poll showed 38% support for this disaster.

GLENN: It's down farther he than that. And you know what? I just   where do I have this?

PAT: Fox News has it 56 35. Rasmussen has it 56 38, against. So   

STU: Yeah, that's   especially when you start talking about specifics.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

STU: I mean, you start talking about any cost increase, that number goes even more in the tank.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Try this on for size. Look who supports and does not oppose the plan. Over 65, 32% support. 50 to 64, 41% support. 30 to 49, 28% support. Under 30, 25% support.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's Gallup.

PAT: That's why they are trying to jam this thing through right now.

GLENN: It is falling.

PAT: They know there's no support for it.

GLENN: The highest number of supporters is 50 64. Everyone else is   over 65 is 32%. Under 49, 28%. And under 30, 25%. That is the core of the Obama supporters. Under 30.

PAT: They don't want to pay for other people's healthcare their whole lives.

GLENN: They know.

PAT: They don't want to.

STU: They are the ones making the choice not to get it in general because they don't want to.

PAT: It's not important to them.

GLENN: This is going to, this is going to be   this is an albatross. This   you know, I was going to do a monologue tonight on television but we decided to change at the last minute because there's something else that's unbelievable that has just happened, but we'll get to it. It is the exit strategy. This guy's   these numbers, Hillary Clinton, Clinton Care or Hillary Care was at 36% approval. This is Gallup. They don't have one, what, 50 64 is 41% approval rating. Everybody else, 32%, 28%, and 25%.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So this is how badly this is doing. Compare that to Hillary Care. Hillary Care was a joke. She couldn't even   they didn't want you to call it Obama care because they didn't want it to appear like Hillary Care. Obama care is more toxic. How do you pass this? Then start collecting the money and then not give any of the benefits until 2014?

PAT: For four years.

STU: Because you are trying to hide obviously this   

GLENN: But how do you   my question is your poll numbers are this low.

PAT: People are going to be so angry.

GLENN: You are going to be taking the money from them, not giving them any benefits. You are spending another stimulus package without creating any more jobs. This lie cannot continue this long. You gave the   you gave rebates, tax refunds. Come April everybody is going to understand that millions of people, that we're giving those low income tax refunds where they sent you a check, they're going to demand tax dollars back. They told you to go out and spend it. Well, many people did. Now you have to pay taxes on that refund.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Just a matter, I mean, if we had a competent media that covered this and was critical, and occasionally we see scattered showers of it. But if that happened all the time, there would be no way he would have a 40   he would be celebrating a 45% approval rating.

PAT: He has the cover of the press and yet he's still down to 48% approval rating.

GLENN: Listen   

PAT: If the press was against him the way it was against Bush, it would be in the 30s.

GLENN: Anybody that understands politics knows when you get down to, what is it, 44 or 42% approval rating, you don't go back up without a major event. You don't recover from that. You don't get your healthcare stuff, you don't get anything passed. You are a lame duck under 42%. And you don't go back generally speaking, you don't go back up. So when you approach 42%, that's then the advisors say triangulate. And you know the reality that we tried to preach every day. If you're a strategist and you say, Mr. President, do you want to have any kind of power twelve months from now. You've got to triangulate a little bit. You've got to be able to retain some of your power. Your political people are saying that right now, but apparently that's not a message that he's either hearing or he cares. So he's either, he's either just going to flame out here or he's got a different strategy. He doesn't have to worry about the politics because there's he's going to play the emergency in a different way. What is the end game? Because I'm trying to understand it in the traditional sense. It doesn't work. You triangulate at this point. You cut. You stop doing the same thing you're doing. They're not. So what is the end game scenario? Are you so arrogant   which is a possibility   so arrogant and so blind to the American people that you just think you can get away with this forever; or, do you not care because you are fundamentally transforming the power structure of America. You're going to have to decide, but it's not your typical, "Oh, we're going down in the polls; we'll triangulate to win."

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
