Glenn Beck: Brett Baier grills Obama on healthcare




Video: Obama's Interview with FNC's Bret Baier

GLENN: Last night Bret Baier said, if this is so important, I mean, why do you have to bribe people and arm twist? The answer, I think, spoke volumes.

BAIER: You know, we asked our viewers to e-mail in suggested questions. More than 18,000 people took time to e-mail us questions and these are regular people from all over the country. Lee Johnson from Spring Valley, California: If the bill is so good for all of us, why all the intimidation, arm twisting, seedy deals, and parliamentary trickery necessary to pass a bill when you have an overwhelming majority in both houses and the presidency? Sandy Moody in Chesterfield, Missouri: If the healthcare bill is so wonderful, why do you have to bribe Congress to pass it?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Bret, I get 30,000 letters or e-mails a day.

BAIER: I know you do.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I could read the exact same --

BAIER: But these are real people. It's not just Washington punditry.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Listen. I've got exactly the same e-mails that I could show you that talk about why haven't we done something to make sure that I, a small business person, am getting as good of a deal as members of Congress are getting and don't have my insurance rates jacked up 40%. Why is it --

GLENN: Stop it. Stop it. Do you notice what he's done here? He didn't say, what bribery?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He didn't say what arm twisting? This is Saul Alinsky. Now, when it comes to process, I don't care about process, this process I do because it speaks volumes about us and volumes about what's happening in Washington. When we say, oh, well, the process doesn't matter, yes, it does! You can judge a tree by its fruit and the fruit is bribery and corruption, so you know if it's a good tree or a bad tree.

Now, with this being said, I implore you to reach out to your friends and make sure your message is not about politics. I said to you before that our country, really the world as we know it, okay, the economy, global economy as we know it is sinking. It is the Titanic and it is going to go down. I hope I'm wrong, but the bailout looks like it has failed in Greece. That was the story from Bloomberg this morning. There's another story out today that Spain is in real trouble and the headline was: As Goes Spain, So Goes the World. . I don't know if it's going to be Spain or Greece or California or what it's going to be, but at some point the dominoes are going to fall and we are all tied together to stop nuclear war. That's why this -- that's why this is so bad, because people who are far smarter than you and me, without us knowing about it, tied the global economies together because that's the only way to stop a world war. They did it in the 1940's and 50's and 60's and they announced it in Tragedy and Hope, which is a book from, I think, 1962. Carroll Quigley, the guy, he was a scholar at Harvard and George Washington university. He's the guy responsible for getting Bill Clinton in as a Rhodes Scholar. He's been -- he was an advisor for almost every President known to man and he said, I was part of it that tied it together. And the tragedy was war. The hope was we're not going to have a global war anymore. Why? Because we've tied all of our economies together so people know if there is a global war, it will sink the entire world, the entire global economy will collapse. So, it doesn't matter where it starts. It doesn't matter who caused it. What matters is what then? It doesn't matter about healthcare. I mean, it does because I believe, as I have told you before, healthcare -- this isn't about the healthcare issue. It never has been. It is about control and power. It is about a machine that they will turn on. It is a cage.

There is a story today in the paper about moody's. It's been floating around -- it was on the front page of the New York Times yesterday or the day before. Even I didn't catch this one line. One of my researchers said, Glenn, how come you haven't mentioned this? And I said read it to me again. What? Moody's is the ratings service. Now, remember, you've got to take moody's with a grain of salt because it's a quasi Government organization, but moody's is the one that rates credit. So, in other words, the banking credit, country wide's credit, everybody. The ratings service to say who's got good credit, who doesn't. The same kind of service that got us into this mess in the first place because they said, Oh, yeah, these CEO's, they're good. So, they're not. Do you remember when the crash first started to happen and they were, like, why were these things rated so highly? Well, because people were in bed with each other. The banks were in bed with the rating service. So, when they would come out and evaluate the value of your house, the bank put pressure on them, keep that up, keep it high, et cetera, et cetera. Well, that's what's happened with moody's now. The pressure is on to keep the American credit rating high because we can't have our credit downgraded. Why? How does this affect you? Because if they downgrade our credit, it works just like your credit card. If you have bad credit, your interest rates go up. If the we have bad credit, our interest rates on our debt will go so high, it will consume everything. You won't be able to have healthcare. You won't be able to have roads. You won't be able to have strong defense because we have to pay the interest rate. What happened when everybody's rate on an adjustable mortgage went up? People lost their house. That's what is in -- on our horizon for our country now, but here's the line that was in that article and I've been warning against these two things for how many years? One, we will lose our credit rating if we don't turn around; Two, there is trouble on the horizon. Moody's, in the same article, we -- the United States has made too many critical moves in the last year. They're making things worse. The situation is worse, not just because of the moves but because the worst is not behind us. It's still ahead of us, and there is a real substantial risk of the United States losing its credit rating. First fact. The second one I saw today. Because the world is so unstable, what is ahead may loosen the bonds of society.

Now, what the heck does that even mean? It will loosen the bonds of societal cohesion. What that means is civil unrest. You are seeing it already in Europe. Jerry Brown yesterday said, Now it's the union's turn to fight, so we don't have to. There is going to be societal unrest, maybe, hopefully, God help us, not in America, because if there is societal unrest at this point, we are not prepared as a people. We are going to head for a French revolution, not an American revolution. That one ended in the guillotines. That one ended horribly, because the people had a misunderstanding of what they were fighting for and God did not play the role. It was a misinterpreted God. We are not ready, do not -- there is a story today out of Alaska from a group that says, Hey, I know, you know, we've got a long way to go, but arms are still on the table. An armed assault or an armed revolution is still on the table. It must be taken off the table. It must be taken off the table or things will end like the French revolution, which ended in Napoleon.

So, what I'm coming to you today with is you're not -- I don't think -- I'm not and I just told my staff today, I don't care about ratings. I don't care about money. I've got to keep the show on the air so we all are employed, but I have been saying for a long time there are many things that I believe that I shall never say but I shall never say the things that I do not believe. I am telling you today something that I have not said before but I have believed.

Time runs short. Now is the time that you shore yourself up and you stand for peace. Faith, hope, and charity. You must be the guardian of your own freedom. You must be the guardian of your own family. You must -- if you have been standing on the sidelines in any way, shape, or form, if you've been listening every day and saying, Okay, well, I -- you must get off of the sidelines and you must stand peacefully, even if it is just in your own home. You must begin to think the unthinkable. You must think out of the box. You must, you must look -- prepare for the worst and hope for the best. If you are listening to the sound of my voice today, you are listening for a reason. You are here for a reason, and there's an article today in the paper about this is -- what's about to happen to us is equivalent to Pearl Harbor. It is, but it's not the event of healthcare that Pearl Harbor -- it wasn't just December 7th. It is the years after that changed the world. Be prepared to be a peacemaker.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
