Glenn Beck: Obama ego on display...again



To see the comment, go to the 8:25 mark of the video

GLENN: New poll numbers out. President Obama's hit 44%. His approval rating. I don't know if he knows this. This isn't golf. The lowest score loses. Congress is at 18% and here is a, just a quick peek why. Here is President Obama talking about healthcare, and does any of this feel genuine? And I have to show this on television tonight if we can because you have to see the video. He is dead serious. You'll hear the crowd laugh, but he is absolutely dead serious when he says this. You have to see the video. Can we put this in the newsletter today? We'll ship this out in the newsletter so you can see it at GlennBeck.com. Sign up for the free e mail newsletter and we'll ship it right to your desk today. But here he is, President Obama.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I got a letter. I got a note... today from one of my staff. They forwarded it to me from a woman in St. Louis who had been part of our campaign, very active, who had passed away from breast cancer. She didn't have insurance. She couldn't afford it. So she had put off having the kind of exams that she needed and she had fought a tough battle for four years. All through the campaign she was fighting it, but finally she succumbed to it. And she insisted she's going to be buried in an Obama T shirt.

GLENN: Dead serious.

PAT: Completely.

GLENN: I mean, I can't, I can't even describe. Pat said to me, you have to see this video. And I just listened to it. Then he said I said, oh, my gosh. And he said, he's dead serious. And I said, wow. He said, you have to see the video. Turned the screen around, and I watched the video. It watches much differently than it sounds.

PAT: It's pretty uncomfortable because

GLENN: Very uncomfortable.

PAT: He didn't mean for people to laugh.

GLENN: He has that stoic you know that face that he makes when he kind of lifts his chin up like, "I am God," that kind of look? He has that kind of look to him when he's saying this, you know, staring right at the TelePrompTer. So he's either completely disconnected, which is a very big possibility, completely disconnected from what is happening in the room with him and he's just so lost in the TelePrompTer, or he thinks that it's dead serious that she wants to be buried in an Obama T shirt. He thinks that's a good thing that he should be saying. I think that's creepy.

I would like to also just ask real quick, how does he get a letter or a card from a woman who's dead?

PAT: Just yesterday, right?

GLENN: Just yesterday. "I just got a card, I just got a letter, or a card or smoke signal from a woman who just died."

PAT: Well, one of his staff got it and then sent it to him. Maybe because she died, he thought, oh, this is a good story, send it on to him. He's got a speech tonight; he can talk about this.

GLENN: May I I just got a letter.

PAT: You have a letter?

GLENN: Or a card.

PAT: Smoke signal?

GLENN: It's a piece of paper. Dear Glenn.

PAT: Who forwarded this?

GLENN: A staff member of mine.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: This is from somebody who's never worked on the show.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: But big supporter.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: For a long time.

PAT: Do you give them health insurance or not?

GLENN: No, I don't give them health insurance.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Well, they are not working on the show. They just listen.

PAT: They work for the show?

GLENN: No, not at all. I mean, if you were working for the show, on the show, around the show, and you were working hard and you were a big supporter and I was somebody that had some clout.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I would probably get you health insurance instead of rather just, instead of just having you die. You know what I mean?

PAT: Would you?

GLENN: But it would be cool if they were buried in a Glenn Beck T shirt.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Wouldn't it be neat? That would be neat.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: No, I thought it would be cool if he was, you know, she was buried in a T shirt.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: No, she would dear Glenn, I live in a small community in Southeastern Kentucky. We've seen the firsthand results of these devastating policies. In our community friends are missing.

I don't know what happened. I didn't you know the problem with writing a note or a smoke signal is you don't know what happened to the you can't ask the question like, they're missing; should we go out and look for them?

Families are suffering. Neighbors have been lost. And for what? Glenn, I beg of you to demand answers for the voiceless Americans out there. When will this stop? Why has it gone on this long? Where do we find relief? In our small town alone, 1,457 people have attempted suicide simply because they are sick and tired of hearing Barack Obama read letters or talk about letters that he reads every night. People in our small town can't take it anymore. Please, please no more personal stories hand selected by one of his aides to give at talking points or photo ops. Mr. President, please, for America's sake, tear up those envelopes. Sincerely, Gertrude. She writes counsel here in a shaky hand, she wants to know if we have any kind of Glenn Beck Snuggies or socks that she could be buried in.

PAT: Maybe a koozie or something?

GLENN: Yeah. Do we have koozies? Maybe we could put the entire coffin into a koozie.

PAT: A Glenn Beck koozie would be really cool.

GLENN: That would be really cool.

PAT: Really cool.

GLENN: It would show her support even after death.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Stu, why aren't you laughing?

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Oh, man. And he only has an approval rating of 44%.

PAT: Hard to believe.

GLENN: Okay. This is I've said before now for, what, over a year, when this guy hits 42%, trouble. Look out; this guy's trouble. Not that he's not already trouble. I mean, I think, well, at least for some of his workers who are being buried in his T shirts. This guy wait a minute, hang on. I just thought of something. Should we get, should we get that who's the woman that was hanging out with Arnold the pig? Should we get her on the phone to find out? Because maybe Obama is slaying these people. Have you noticed how many people he has personally come into contact with that are now dead and can't speak for themselves? Have you noticed that?

PAT: Yes, either through letters, smoke signals, actual meetings, what have you.

GLENN: Right. They're just dead. Do you think that it's possible that these are the people that that crazy man on television was talking about when he said he was going to be slaying Americans?

STU: You think that's the new case? Is that what you're

GLENN: No, I just wondered.

STU: You are just wondering out loud.

GLENN: I'm just wondering if that's who she was talking about. He does seem to have an awful lot of letters from people who are dying.

PAT: Well, he's reading letters every night, though, you have to remember. A few of those are going to be dying.

GLENN: Is this a possibility this is like, I didn't even I'm just try to think like Columbo. They always return to the scene of the crime and then they try to help you solve it.

STU: Hmmm.

GLENN: See what I mean?

STU: See, I'm thinking it might it could potentially be true, although I think Pat's idea that he does read a lot of letters, maybe he's also getting a lot that are just like, hey, we visited the Grand Canyon last week, it was beautiful, here's pictures of the kids. But he doesn't read those on TV. He only reads the ones that involve people dying and suffering. Possible.

GLENN: You know, can we you know, I'm going to take a break. When we come back, could we write a letter to the president? Let's see if he'll ever use it. Let's see if we can write a letter to the president ourselves, one that we can get him to read. I know the last time I heard him read a letter it was at the state of the union and he said it was from, what, a kid that didn't understand Wall Street?

PAT: Yeah. He was concerned about his credit default swaps, I think.

Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to talk about how he thinks President Donald Trump will fair in the 2020 election given the current struggling economy due to the coronavirus crisis.

O'Reilly said he believes President Trump will win in November if the coronavirus pandemic is under control by this summer, but if schools and businesses are still closed by September, it may be trouble for Trump -- even with former vice president Joe Biden's seemingly declining health.

"What I've said from the very beginning of this whole ordeal, is that if Donald Trump can get the pandemic under control this summer, he wins. If by September, it's not under control, the kids cannot go back to school in many places, people are not opening up businesses again, he loses," O'Reilly said.

However, the Democrats have a major problem because Joe Biden ... is tottering. His mental acute is not what it used to be and everyone around him knows that. That's why Andrew Cuomo is warming up in the bullpen," he added. "But Trump knows that his whole future in politics depends on getting this pandemic to subside."

Glenn gives the latest coronavirus numbers, updating YOU on everything needed to know as Americans and officials monitor China's new COVID-19 virus:

Daily Stats as of 5:30 AM CT (from John's Hopkins)

  • Total Confirmed Cases Worldwide: 1,030,324 (up from 950,638 Yesterday)
  • Total Confirmed Deaths Worldwide: 54,226 (up from 48,289 Yesterday)
  • Total Confirmed Recovered Worldwide: 219,896 (up from 202,631 Yesterday)
  • 5% of Active Cases are considered serious (requiring hospitalization) Steady from 5% Yesterday, but down from 19% high back in February
  • Note that 12% of US Confirmed Cases require Hospitalization, roughly on par with Italy at 12% requiring hospitalization and lower than Spain, where 18% of patients require hospitalization.
  • US has 245,380 Confirmed Cases and 6,095 Deaths, up from 215,344 cases and 5,112 deaths yesterday
  • The US currently has 228,874 Active Cases of COVID-19, with about 1% of the US Population tested
  • 15% of Americans who have been tested have been diagnosed with COVID-19
White House to Recommend All Americans Wear Face Masks in Public https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2020/04/02/coronavirus-facemasks-policyreversal/
  • The White House is poised to urge Americans to wear cloth masks or face coverings in public to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, in a reversal of earlier advice.
  • President Trump said Thursday at a coronavirus task force briefing that "a recommendation is coming out," but "I don't think it will be mandatory. If people want to wear them, they can."
  • Later, however, a White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to relate internal discussions, said that the guidance being considered is "narrowly targeted to areas with high community transmission" and that the matter remains under discussion.
  • A new Memo from the CDC states: "In light of new data, along with evidence of widespread transmission in communities across the country, CDC recommends the community use of cloth masks as an additional public health measure people can take to prevent the spread of the virus to those around them."
  • The recommendations represent a major change in CDC guidance that healthy people don't need masks or face coverings.
  • The news comes as Laredo, TX joins more than a dozen American cities or Counties that have mandated the use of face masks for all persons in public spaces such as grocery stores or shopping centers. Violaters without a facemask risk up to a $1000 fine. https://www.foxnews.com/us/texas-city-fine-people-who-dont-cover-faces-outside-coronavirus
  • Similar provisions are being considered for the entire State of California, according to Governor Gavin Newsom's office.
Anti-body Tests Getting Accelerated Availability https://news.yahoo.com/antibody-tests-key-ending-covid-19-lockdowns-162305617.html
  • Unlike Vaccine testing and production which could take months or years, SARS-CoV-2 Antibody tests could be available in the US in a few weeks.
  • Such tests could be key in enabling the partial lifting of lockdown and shelter-in-place orders, as authorities could determine who might already have immunity to the virus and could return to work.
  • "If we can determine someone's already had the virus and now has immunity and is no longer contagious to others, that's what we're looking for here," said Anthony Fauci in Thursday's White House COVID-19 Task Force update.
  • However, it should be noted that researchers have yet to determine if anti-body production renders people permanently or only temporarily immune to the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19.
  • While some Virus immunities, such as Chicken Pox, are generally permanent immunities, others, such as SARS-1 and Rhinovirus (the common cold) grant only short-term, multi-month immunity...which is why people can get a cold each year.
  • Most known Coronavirus immunities in humans are not permanent, researchers have noted. Influenza, for example, grants only seasonal immunity and can be caught again only a few months later.
Lord Have Mercy...Hospital Ships Sit Empty https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/02/nyregion/ny-coronavirus-usns-comfort.html
  • The much-touted Navy Hospital Ships in New York and Los Angeles sit 95% empty as of Thursday evening.
  • In New York, The USNS Comfort's 1,000 beds are largely unused, its 1,200-member crew mostly idle. "We're waiting for patients," one nurse was quoted by the New York Times.
  • Only 20 patients had been transferred to the ship, officials said, even as New York hospitals struggled to find space for the thousands infected with the coronavirus.
  • Another Navy hospital ship, the USNS Mercy, docked in Los Angeles, has had a total of 15 patients, officials said.
  • "If I'm blunt about it, it's a joke," said Michael Dowling, the head of Northwell Health, New York's largest hospital system. "Everyone can say, 'Thank you for putting up these wonderful places and opening up these cavernous halls.' But we're in a crisis here, we're in a battlefield."
  • What's the issue? In classic government style: Red Tape.
  • On top of its strict rules preventing people infected with the virus from coming on board, the Navy is also refusing to treat a host of other conditions. Guidelines disseminated to hospitals included a list of 49 medical conditions that would exclude a patient from admittance to the ship.
  • Ambulances cannot take patients directly to the Comfort; they must first deliver patients to a city hospital for a lengthy evaluation — including a test for the virus — and then pick them up again for transport to the ship. With 911 call centers already massively over-capacity, ambulances aren't available to take non-infected persons to each ship.
  • Meanwhile, across New York hospitals are overrun. Patients have died in hallways before they could even be hooked up to one of the few available ventilators in New York. Doctors and nurses, who have had to use the same protective gear, again and again, are getting sick.
  • "So many people are dying that the city is running low on body bags," Dowling said. "The Coroner's office told our administrator to start double-wrapping bodies in sheets for the time being."
In Hopeful Sign, University of Pittsburgh Researchers May Have Found COVID-19 Vaccine https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/scientists-believe-they-found-potential-coronavirus-vaccine/
  • Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine believe that they've found a potential vaccine for the new coronavirus.
  • The researchers announced their findings Thursday and believe the vaccine could be rolled out quickly enough to "significantly impact the spread of disease," according to their study published in EBioMedicine.
  • The vaccine would be delivered on a small, fingertip-sized patch. When tested on mice, the vaccine produced enough antibodies believed to successfully counteract the virus.
  • The scientists say they were able to act fast because they had already done research on the similar coronaviruses SARS and MERS.
  • The Trump Administration ordered the FDA to fast-track the next phase of Animal trials for the experimental vaccine.
  • Officials did warn that even if successful, human trials and ultimate production could still be as many as 12-18 months away.
  • "It's early, but this is a very positive result," the lead scientist said in an interview. "We're well on our way."
Vermont, Maryland Make Buying Seeds to Grow Food Illegal https://www.eagletimes.com/covid_19/large-retailers-stop-in-person-sales-of-nonessential-items-in-vermont/article_c1d0e43c-7432-11ea-8ca9-a30ed891d9fd.htmlimage.png Canada's Farmers Warn of Food Supply Impact Due to Non-Essential Designation https://ipolitics.ca/2020/04/02/the-sprout-canadian-farmers-worry-for-food-supply/, https://business.financialpost.com/commodities/agriculture/agriculture-sector-scrambling-to-offset-consequences-of-covid-19-crisis
  • Canada's government issues a list of industries and jobs it deemed essential, including food delivery, shipping & logistics, medical care, energy production & delivery.
  • One industry that was glaringly absent: agricultural production.
  • Like the US, Canada's agricultural industry relies on migrant and seasonal workers to plant and harvest foods, especially key fruits and vegetables that must be picked by hand.
  • Industry representatives have begun to petition the government to include Ag production an essential service so travel restrictions can be relaxed to allow workers to travel into Canada and use of public transportation systems to get to where planting activities must occur soon to allow for Fall food harvests.
  • Canada's Federation of Independent Grocers also extended a warning to the Government that it projects food costs in Canada could rise by as much as 90% in the coming months due to COVID-19 related disruptions. https://nationvalleynews.com/2020/04/01/grocers-group-warns-rising-food-costs-come/
Industry Expert Warns Illness Among Agricultural Workers Could Threaten US Food Supplies https://www.msn.com/en-us/finance/markets/an-outbreak-among-farm-workers-would-be-catastrophic/ar-BB1257dl
  • Much of the US food supply chain is staffed by low-wage workers, many of them undocumented immigrants with limited ties to health services.
  • The Pew Research Center has estimated that about one-quarter of U.S. farmworkers are undocumented.
  • A 2019 U.S. Department of Labor survey estimated that the share of field workers who are undocumented is closer to half of all farmworkers.
  • The food processing industry also has high numbers of undocumented workers, as do many of the nation's smaller grocers and fast-food restaurants.
  • Immigrant farming communities are often close-knit, with laborers living and working in close proximity, with workers sharing hotel rooms and even make-shift Tents with cots, to save on costs.
  • As the California-based Western Growers Association states, "Social distancing is difficult or perhaps impossible in certain settings such as harvesting, transport (of workers) and housing."
  • One California grower told National Public Radio that if the coronavirus penetrates the agricultural community, "it will spread like wildfire."
  • The news comes as Mexico only recently restricted movements and travel, issuing shelter-in-place orders for 90% of the country.
  • The Trump Administration recently eased restrictions on H-2a Ag Worker visas, but industry experts warned many workers planned to stay in Mexico or other Central American countries due to travel restrictions now in effect in those countries. https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2020-03-27/state-department-eases-requirements-for-h2a-visa
  • The Western Growers Association currently estimates a 30% reduction in labor force this year, which may be further impacted if COVID-19 spreads among workers who live and work in tight close quarters.
LA Mayor: "Snitches Get Rewards" https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/03/31/coronavirus-los-angeles-eric-garcetti-snitches-get-rewards/
  • Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced new guidelines for construction sites that continue to operate during the coronavirus pandemic while encouraging the community to report businesses that violate the Safer at Home order.
  • Garcetti said that since the stay at home order was put in place, the city has been told about construction sites that have not been following the guidelines set out in that order.
  • "You know the old expression about snitches, well in this case snitches get rewards," Garcetti said. "We want to thank you for turning folks in and making sure we are all safe."
  • As of Tuesday afternoon, Garcetti said "business ambassadors" from the city had visited 540 businesses that had not complied with the Safer at Home order. Of those, 144 were visited by officers with the Los Angeles Police Department to ensure compliance with the order.
  • So far, Four businesses have been referred to the city attorney's office for misdemeanor filings.
  • The story comes as business owners across the US have been cited and even arrested for violating House Arrest orders, many turned in by way of anonymous calls to police departments. https://apnews.com/343ed4a8e95dfc8f8dda87b9e450ca57
In Germany, Hundreds of Citations Handed Out Based on Anonymous Reports and Emails to Police Departments https://news.trust.org/item/20200402160625-8y12u
  • (Headline Bloomberg News) Germans snitch on neighbors flouting virus rules, in an echo of the Stasi past
  • Law-abiding Germans are zealously helping police crackdown on people flouting new social distancing rules aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus by reporting on strangers, neighbors and friends.
  • In a country where denunciation was commonplace under the Communists in East Germany and Hitler's Nazis, police forces across the country are getting tip-offs on anything from "corona parties" to people driving to weekend cottages.
  • Rules introduced in March forcing restaurants, pubs and sports facilities to shut and banning gatherings of people have given police plenty of work. With the number of corona cases and deaths climbing fast, there is no sign of easing enforcement.
  • Since March 14, police in the German capital have ordered 830 pubs, shisha bars and other establishments to shut and recorded 898 crimes.
  • "We are getting tip-offs from the public about open restaurants or large gatherings of people in parks," said a spokeswoman, adding officers were, as always, ready to deal with information from the public.
  • Forces around Germany are in a similar situation. Munich police took up to 150 calls every day last week from citizens reporting alleged breaches of corona rules, according to Spiegel Online.

For weeks now, our political leaders and the media have been repeating the World Health Organization's claim that non-medical-grade face masks don't work when it comes to preventing the spread of COVID-19. So, why are infectious disease experts now reconsidering their guidelines?

According to the New York Times, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, said the guidance on wearing non-medical masks is "being critically re-reviewed, to see if there's potential additional value for individuals that are infected or individuals that may be asymptomatically infected."

In actuality, they didn't trust the American people to do the right thing and prioritize healthcare workers to receive masks first, opined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday. But they do work, and "if we're going to open the country up, we are going to all have to wear face masks," he said.

William "Bill" Kelly is 95-year-old World War II veteran from Oregon. He lived through the Great Depression.
He served in the South Pacific during World War II. And now he has just fought the coronavirus -- and won.

Bill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to share his experience and a hopeful message about why the younger generations can overcome this crisis.

"I want to tell the people, it wasn't pleasant, but on the other hand, you know, if you do what you're supposed to do, and you have some loved ones around you, and do a lot of praying, why, you'll come through okay. We [American's] have been through a lot. We've been through Pearl Harbor. We've been through the Great Depression, and who knows what else. We're tough. We'll get through it. Hang in there," Bill said.

"You know, it's just -- it's in our American blood," he added. "We're that type of people. We take care of each other, and we are not going to break down. We're going to make it through, every time. Every time."

"There are people that don't think we are those people anymore. That it was the greatest generation -- your generation -- that did it, but now we're not the same people. Do you agree with that? Glenn asked.

"No," asserted Bill. "And the reason I say that is because I remember when I was a young kid, you know, and people, the older people, said 'all those young kids are soft' ... but when we were attacked at Pearl Harbor -- sneak attack, you know -- it's surprising how those so-called goofy kids turned into mighty fine fighting people. And they're very loyal. I have lots of faith in them ... no, I don't have any problems with this new generation. They'll take care of us. We're Americans."
