Glenn Beck: The C-SPAN challenge



C-SPAN Lie? Eight Clips of Obama Promising Televised Healthcare Negotiations

GLENN: All right. So Nancy Pelosi said President Obama wants, what? Something on C Span? What? Then when the reporter said, yeah, he said that these healthcare debates I mean, I'm glad that somebody's getting around to this now should all be out in the open and he would put it on C Span. And she said, well, a lot of things were said on the campaign trail. Like that's not insulting. I mean, we lie to people all the time.

STU: It wasn't this one lie. There were several lies, tons of lies. Why are you focusing on this one?

PAT: Say anything to get elected.

GLENN: You're lying!

PAT: Lying right now!

GLENN: Oh, my goodness.

PAT: I'm lying about lying!

GLENN: Oh, man. But I'm not lying about that, I'm not. (Laughing). Okay. So here is, from Breitbart.TV, I love Scott Baker. Scott Baker has gone back and, is it Scott that did this? And he's assembled all of the clips on the campaign trail of Barack Obama saying, "I want to make sure this is open."

PAT: On C Span, televised.

GLENN: I want it on C Span.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Not behind closed doors but bringing all parties together and broadcasting those negotiations on C Span so that the American people can see what the choices are because part of what we have to do is enlist the American people in this process.

GLENN: Yeah. Stop, stop, stop, stop. I love this. We have to enlist them: Shut those town hall meetings down. We have to enlist the American people: Those people are evil, dangerous. They are playing the politics of the past. They didn't enlist your help.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We don't even know what's in the bill! People in congress don't even know what's in the bill.

STU: And I love how the audience collapse there. This is something they are excited about.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: The transparency, this is what they are voting for.

PAT: Because George Bush was so closed. It was a secretive administration. We never knew anything he was doing.

GLENN: How many times did we hear the debate is over? I just want him to sit down and shut up.

PAT: You mean with Bush? Well, not at all but I'm sure he thought.

STU: I'm sure he thought.

GLENN: You can see inside of people's soul.

PAT: Oh, yeah, read between the lines.

GLENN: Okay, so anyway, go ahead.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Plan forward, and I would welcome input and say either my goals, reduce costs, increase quality, coverage for everybody. If you have better ideas, please present them. But these negotiations will be on C Span.

PAT: We have.

GLENN: Wait. These negotiations will

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So the public will be part of the conversation and will see the choices that are being made.

Well, I respect what they tried to do in 1993 in moving health reform forward.

PAT: But.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: But they made one really big mistake and that is they took all their people and all their experts into a room and then they closed the door.

PAT: That's completely different from the closed door meeting they are having now?

GLENN: No, no

PAT: Because it's a different room.

GLENN: I'm sure the door was open when Andy Stern was

PAT: Well, when they let him in, when they closed the door. And it's a different room.

STU: It's down the hall, maybe on another floor.

PAT: I think it's a totally different floor. Yes, the door's closed and we're talking to Andy and a couple of other special interests. But it's a different room.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will work on this process publicly. It will be on C Span, it will be streaming over the Net.

GLENN: Hang on, hang on, hang on, hang on. I didn't know that. It's streaming over the net.

STU: Both.

GLENN: What Net?

STU: C Span Net?

GLENN: Dot net?

PAT: Org?

STU: Dot biz.

GLENN: Us.TV.

PAT: Squiggly line, back slash, back slash.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Televised on C Span.

GLENN: That's four.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So that people can see

GLENN: This is a commercial!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies.

GLENN: Stop. We've got to play the John McCain saying, I don't know what special, you know, deal you're getting. I know that a special deal was made for the drug companies, but I don't know what deal with you because every door is closed to us. I mean, you've got to juxtapose these two.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We're going to do all these negotiations on C Span.

PAT: Five.

STU: Five.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So the American people will be able to watch these negotiations.

Drug and insurance companies will have a seat at the table. They just want be able to buy every single chair. And we will have a public.

STU: Public.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: process for forming this plan. It will be televised on C Span.

STU: That's six.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So that everybody's going to be watching, but it will be transparent and accountable to the American people.

STU: Transparent.

(Audio playing)

GLENN: That's on a plane.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: That's why I said, for example, that I want the negotiations taking place on C Span.

STU: That's seven, seven.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: So I put forward my plan but what I'll say is, look, if you've got better ideas, I'm happy to listen to them. But all this will be done on C Span.

PAT: Number 8.

GLENN: There you go. So I'm looking forward to those negotiations being on C Span dot net dot org.

PAT: Dot us, dot gov.

GLENN: Here's why it's not going to be on C Span or wouldn't be on C Span if they had their way because they learned their lesson, as we pointed out last night with the League of Nations. I mean, I read all about Woodrow Wilson, how long was I boring this audience with Woodrow Wilson stuff? They learned during the League of Nations, Woodrow Wilson said we're going to be open, we're going to be honest, we're going to tell you this is what it is and he made the case and he went from city to city. In fact, he had a stroke in California during a debate about the League of Nations. And he kept going. And he was never seen in public again after that because he was incapacitated. But he served out his term. But they learned their lesson. You cannot have an open, honest debate. You've got to use a crisis, shut down debate and keep it closed. And if you look at the difference between the way the progressives handled the League of Nations, learn their lesson and then use those three things to jam through the United Nations, it's the same pattern that they are using on everything else today.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"
