Glenn Beck: Canada's wonderful healthcare system

GLENN: The Premier of Canada is coming to the United States to have surgery. Is it heart surgery?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yeah, heart surgery. And I suppose that's just because Canada has such great heart surgeons and heart hospitals.

PAT: He doesn't want to take any of them away from the regular.

GLENN: Well, you don't want to think about that because there's plenty of doctors and hospitals and medicine to go around for everybody.

PAT: Yeah, I didn't mean to say that they were rationing care up there.

GLENN: No.

PAT: Or that there would be any kind of lengthy wait because we all know with socialized medicine that's not true.

STU: It's like a challenge because it's so easy to survive heart surgery in Canada.

PAT: Good point.

STU: You might as well go for the

GLENN: He's like, look, I want to help the Americans get better at their lame skills.

PAT: So he's giving some crappy surgeon who's probably just removed somebody's feet to get a bigger feel fee. He just wants to give them some practice.

STU: Yeah. I like that.

GLENN: We pray for the Canadian Premier and his heart surgery that he doesn't have his tonsils removed as well for extra fees down here.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Probably will. That's probably going to happen.

GLENN: Should we warn him? Should we warn him?

PAT: We should. We probably should.

GLENN: I think we should. We should put some tags on his feet: Don't remove these.

STU: Yeah, if you write on marker, if you have permanent marker and you write on your feet, please do not remove.

PAT: I mean, can they read, though? Can American doctors read?

STU: Yeah, that's a good point.

PAT: Maybe a nurse or something.

GLENN: Why is he coming here? I mean, if you are going to go for superior medicine, why don't you just go right directly to Cuba?

PAT: Because they're one, I think they are one place ahead of us. So they are not as bad as we are. So he probably figured we needed the extra practice, not Cubans.

GLENN: All right. Well, that's big of the Canadian Premier.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: And I hope the president points this out in his speech.

PAT: He is taking his life into his hands by coming here.

GLENN: You know, so many of these leaders of these countries come here and do the same thing just to help us get better at medicine.

PAT: I bet their people weep at their sacrifice, do you think? Like when Italy's leader came here for surgery. I'll bet Italians wept. As a people they probably broke down and wept openly.

STU: I think that's probably true actually, yeah.

GLENN: Like little girls just crying in the streets.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: He's so beautiful.

PAT: Remember when Fidel went to Spain.

STU: Again just to help? Just to help out?

PAT: Just to help an inferior medical system.

GLENN: When you leave one country and say I can get better medical care in Spain, you know.

PAT: You know.

GLENN: You've got some good medical care happening in your country.

PAT: Well, that's what we learned from Michael Moore when he did that Sicko. And it was just, I think a lot of people learned from that and obviously Danny Williams, the Canadian Premier, is one of those people who learned, U.S. needs some help, needs some help.

STU: What's interesting is Moore took a boat over to Cuba and what's interesting is that the boat floated. All the way there.

GLENN: So our best to the Canadian Premier who is do we know what hospital he's in?

PAT: No, it doesn't say. It doesn't say. Maybe they are keeping that quiet.

GLENN: Yeah. Well, you wouldn't know which hospital was the worst.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what I mean, which one has the doctors most likely to cut off the Premier's feet or take out his tonsils just for the extra cash.

PAT: Remove an ear. Who knows. I mean, these guys don't know an ear from a heart. They don't know what the deal is.

GLENN: It is really, truly amazing how the media is I mean, if you were just objective at all, at all, you have the Premier of Canada coming from this utopian medical society of Canada here to have heart surgery because it's not routine because it is difficult. Then on the same day you have the president of the United States saying, "Hey, by the way, you know, I tried to be very clear that you should be able to keep your own doctor, but some of the things slipped into this bill under the cover of darkness. May have gotten in there that won't guarantee that you can keep your own doctor." My gosh!

PAT: Jeez.

GLENN: Where is the press?

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
