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."

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
