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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
