Glenn Beck: Health Care Overhaul By Any Means Necessary





Watch Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

We're supposedly in the final push for this health care bill; they are going to try and jam it through this weekend. So the president is back out on the campaign trail, which is weird because he's already in office and he's got sweeping majorities in the House and Senate.

So that leaves Democrats as the only ones actually stopping this bill. But the president is blaming and trying to shame Republicans and the 73 percent of Americans who say Congress should "start over" on health care.

On Monday, Obama trotted out another supposed victim of the system: Natoma Canfield, a breast cancer survivor.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: You want to know why I'm here Ohio? I'm here because of Natoma.

So when you hear people say "start over," I want you to think about Natoma.

The bottom line is this: The status quo on health care is simply unsustainable.

JAKE TAPPER, ABC NEWS: What would the bill do for Natoma?

OBAMA: Well, what would have happened is Natoma would have been able to be part of this exchange, this marketplace, that gave her a choice of plans just like members of Congress have, but because she'd be part of a million people who are in a pool, her rates would be lower.

That was Jake Tapper asking the question I would have asked and the president's answer made no sense. He just described the insurance industry: There's a pool of people and now the government is going to be another company. How does that lower rates exactly? It doesn't, because they will undercut prices and put insurers out of business.

But that's not the goal — the goal is power and control. And they'll do it using any means possible.

Obama had said Natoma might lose her house because of all the bills. But that's not true. The Cleveland Clinic — who is treating her — has already said that's not going to happen and that she will be eligible for aid. And she's already getting charitable assistance as well.

If there are supposedly so many people dying because of the evil health insurers, why can't the president highlight a story that's not only a true representative of the problem, but actually true?

Remember the man Obama claimed died because his health care insurance dropped him? And the claim was untrue; treatment actually extended his life by three years before dying.

And we showed you Monday the single mother of three, who worked at Jack in the Box and tragically died. Then the unions and George Soros trotted out her son to plea for Obamacare. She is practically the case model for the government assistance we already have and yet somehow this is an example of why we need more government care?

Why is it that government is always the answer: for jobs; for health care; for education; for food?

The president wants you to derive your hope from having faith in the government to be charitable and provide everything to everyone. The truth is that no government program in existence can provide faith, hope and charity.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.
