GLENN: This week we introduced you to the apparent founder of the healthcare reform strategy. He is a convicted felon. His name is Robert Creamer. You have already met Creamer's wife, a congresswoman from Illinois. You know her, you love her for this super, super classic. Do we have it? Sorry, they are doing even more construction in this room and so everything is down and not working.
PAT: Healthcare reform is great. You want the government to do it because it's better than other opportunities to get healthcare.
GLENN: I don't believe that's the actual recording. Let's try
PAT: I love socialism.
SCHAKOWSKY: argued against the public health insurance option, saying it wouldn't let private insurance compete, that a public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single payer. My single payer friends, he was right.
GLENN: Listen to that.
SCHAKOWSKY: My single payer friends, he was right. The man was right.
GLENN: There it is. Listen to those useful idiots. "Yeah! Let's stop American innovation on healthcare! Yeah!" Wait until I show you some new video that we have tonight. See if I can I haven't heard it only, I've only seen it. I'd like to hear it before we play it because maybe we can play it on the radio today. Sometimes you just have to see things, but wait until you see what else they have on healthcare. So that's Creamer's wife, congresswoman. Now Creamer himself, he swindled nine financial institutions out of at least $2.3 million. In 2006 he was convicted of bank fraud. Remember that's the height of everybody in the financial institution what we're trying to correct right now is fraud in banks, ethics in banks, financial reform. But this is way back in 2006. So he was convicted of bank fraud, sentenced to nearly a year and a half in federal prison and house arrest. This is about half the sentence that anybody else gets. If I just went out and did bank fraud, you would get double that sentence usually. His wife, the congresswoman, Schakowsky said, quote, in my heart I know these mistakes do not define or diminish this good man or the good work that he's done over the last 40 years or that he will do in the future. If stealing $2.3 million doesn't diminish someone, what does? Apparently President Obama didn't feel he was diminished, either, and invited the convicted felon to the first state dinner of his presidency. You know the one where everybody was, "Hey, how did these, how did these reality stars get in here past the secret service." The bigger question is, is our president in trouble? Because somebody's not doing their job. Because now we have a convicted felon with the president. Obama is apparently using the work of this good man, the work that this good man did in prison. He's, by the way, not a repentant man. He stole $2.3 million. Bank fraud. But he's never said that he was sorry for it. In fact, he doesn't refer to his prison time for it in 2006. He doesn't refer to it as prison time. He said it was a sabbatical. As we pointed out on Fox the other night, the administration is using all of the points that this man developed while in prison, all of them. Also this week, ACORN's comprehensive no holds barred internal investigation showed they did nothing wrong by helping the couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute to set up a whorehouse and import 13 illegal aliens to use as sex slaves. I don't know if I wasn't aware that Helen Keller was still alive and available for investigations but apparently she is because I don't understand how Helen Keller would have been able to find and see the evidence that this is, something's wrong.
They brought in Scott Harshbarger who, I mean, he couldn't have been expected to see or hear much evil. He was appointed by an ACORN advisory panel that included Kathleen Kennedy Townsend who used to work with the Baltimore top prosecutor, the one looking into the two journalists who shot the ACORN video rather than ACORN employees. John Podesta, the head of the radical leftwing Center For American Progress. There are other leftist members on this board that are just he went so far as to add that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis had nothing whatsoever to do with the scandal.
Okay. Here's their chief investigator: Bertha Lewis had nothing to do with the scandal since she has absolutely, quoting, nothing to do with ACORN housing. That is fascinating that this independent investigator, hired by ACORN would say that she had nothing to do with ACORN housing because here's Bertha Lewis when the scandal was breaking.
LEWIS: Which is why as the CEO I took swift and immediate action, terminated those employees because regardless as to what we know or edited doctored tapes where you don't see everything where finally people were thrown out in dozens of our offices, it is inexcusable.
GLENN: I mean, do we need more? "That is why as the CEO I fired people." How do you do that? That's like the president of McDonald's walking into CVS pharmacy and saying, "This is out of control; I have to fire you people." Do you think the CVS pharmacists leave? "He doesn't work for the pharmacy. I..."
Also this week as the climate change sky was falling all around them, as we are now finding that this is completely corrupt, the warmist cults, the cult of warmists, their spokesboy Robert Gibbs said this:
GIBBS: I think everybody is clear on science. I think scientists are clear on the science. I think many on Capitol Hill are clear on the science. I think that this notion that there's some debate, minus Lester, on the science is kind of silly.
GLENN: Wow, silly. Since when is any important debate in this country silly? Do you have the Harry Reid quote where he talked about slavery? First let's take Robert Gibbs. It's silly. This debate unfortunately involves trillions of dollars. To be exact, $145 trillion. Our economic future, the way of life on this planet, will be forever altered. But it's silly to debate it? Look at what he's dismissing here. Data that supposedly made the case that the Earth had a fever and immediate action is necessary was deleted, manipulated, falsified. And we're not supposed to pay any attention to that? A convicted felon wrote the playbook for the biggest government takeover in American history and no one in the media is even talking about that?
Healthcare, bought and sold by special interests. It will forever it may mean the difference between life and death. It may mean rationing of healthcare. There's probably no other bigger question to ask on healthcare or that's happening now, well, except for maybe the deficit. But that's related to healthcare. How are you going to pay for it so our children have some freedom at the end. There's no more important debate happening right now in shall with a wash than the healthcare debate because it literally is about life and death. But listen to Harry Reid.
REID: Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans, and come up with is this: Slow down. Stop everything. Let's start over.
GLENN: Stop. Are you kidding me? Slow down, all they can say is slow down. Well, is there any reason for anyone to say slow down in this nation? Have we had a problem with people going too fast in this nation in the last nine months? Can anybody think of anything? In the last 12 months when Bush was still in and they rushed TARP, then rushed the stimulus? Now rush healthcare. Slow down. And they're bullying us. If you say it's $145 trillion and there seems to be something going on, well, you're a Holocaust denier. You're not only a Holocaust denier, you're a Holocaust denier that is holding up some sign with Hitler on it calling Nancy Pelosi Hitler! Well, why would you have a sign that had Hitler on it if you are a Holocaust denier? Why would you do that?
So you're a Holocaust denier that just wants to call everybody Hitler, and you're a conspiracy theorist. Even though we have now memos that show there was a conspiracy, scientists were conspiring to hide and destroy the truth. Oh, I know it's, wow, that's a far cry. It's a conspiracy to say that somebody wants universal healthcare but they had no intention, no intention of doing anything but getting a single payer program, one way or another.
Play the congresswoman's comments again. This is a conversation she had with somebody who said, you know, if you do this bill, what's going to happen? Listen.
SCHAKOWSKY: And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who then argued against the public health insurance option saying it wouldn't let private insurance compete, that a public option will put the private insurance compete out of business. And ladies and gentlemen, he was right. My single payer friends, he was right!
GLENN: He was right! He was right! How is that a conspiracy? It's fact.
