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?

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.
