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?

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
