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.

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
