Glenn Beck: Health Care Battle Part of Larger War





Watch

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

Throughout the course of American history there have been, periodically, events so dramatic, so huge that they were completely life altering; they changed the way people went about their day:

When the Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor

When the Framers signed the Constitution

The Civil War

Pearl Harbor

September 11, 2001

All of these events didn't just happen to the immediate people involved. They grabbed each and every citizen at his core and forced people to reevaluate who they were and what they believed, before moving forward again.

Pearl Harbor was a hugely important day, but that wasn't the end of the story. America had a choice to make. And as everyone knows, the decisions that followed over the next few years after that deadly December 7 attack radically changed America's course.

That is what's coming.

If you think I'm talking about the health care bill, you couldn't be more wrong. The health care bill is merely a battle (and a huge battle; it may be Normandy) but it's part of a bigger war. And the war is the fundamental transformation or restoration of this country. That's the end game.

While everyone will focus on the political games surrounding the health care bill — the "Slaughter rule"; the secrecy; the arm twisting; the bribes; the lies — and they should address those things, there is something much bigger — much bigger than Obama or Bush or Clinton. We've been off track for decades and it's finally catching up with us.

How have we allowed our system to make this type of bill a possibility? Americans need to ask that question and find the answers, because even if this health care bill is stopped there will eventually be another massive corrupt bill and another and another

We have to fix the entire system. It's broken.

I read a report today that the Greece bailout deal is falling apart. Their markets tanked on the news. I read another report that said if Spain goes into default, the whole world goes into default. There was a report that barely got any news: Moody's saying that America may lose its Triple-A rating. But there was a small line at the end of the article that got even less attention — I even missed this one the first time through. This is incredible. Have you heard anyone out there focusing on this? Moody's said for America to stay a Triple-A rated country, it would require "fiscal adjustments of a magnitude that, in some cases, will test social cohesion."

Let me translate: "fiscal adjustments" — you are going to less, not more; "social cohesion" — Greece! They believe society may experience some sort of breakdown. But the fiscal adjustments must be made.

During TARP discussions, Congressman Brad Sherman said members were told if they didn't pass TARP, there would be martial law. Congressman Paul E. Kanjorski was told that without the Fed intervention of an electronic bank run, world economic collapse would have happened within 24 hours. I'd like to know: What are they being told about health care today?

Whether health care is stopped or not, world finance as we know it is going to reset. And the president knows it.

This bill is the centerpiece of progressive structure. Remember, this isn't just health care. It's a grab of all education dollars as well. This is a long-term strategy: Someone has to be standing when that evil capitalism finally fails us.

This is exactly what happened in the Soviet Union. The leaders there saw the writing on the wall. If you want the full story, read Stephen F. Cohen's "Soviet Fates and Lost Alternatives." If you don't have time, google this: the Belavezha Accords.

They knew tough times and collapse were ahead, so they prepared for it by creating a structure. But in the Soviet Union, the opposite happened: They took a step toward freedom. While we are heading the other way: Dependency on big government. Because, as I mentioned, they will tell you that the free market failed us: People don't have jobs. They will say: Come, we'll make it all better.

This is a turning point for America. We are standing at a crossroads. We have to decide who we want to be when we come out on the other side.

I'm going to tell you a story. You tell me if it's unreasonable to draw these conclusions:

The 121 Walgreen stores in Washington state won't take any new Medicaid patients, saying that filling their prescriptions is a "money-losing proposition." If they say that, what does the government do to Walgreens? If other chains do the same thing, then the government has a choice: Do they let them continue to turn away Medicaid patients or do they force them, through regulation, to accept Medicaid patients?

Well, we already know the answer to that one because we've seen it: They'll force them. And since it's a losing money proposition, the government will soon be faced with another choice: Do we let them fail or do we bail them out and nationalize the industry?

Well, we already know the answer to that one because we've already seen it: They will nationalize it. It's a cascade effect and it will happen in every industry that's deemed "too big to fail."

Take a look at the tree of liberty. Here is the side that everyone is paying attention to now:

Spending

Special interests

Corruption

Bribery

But the other side is what we need to focus more on; these are the things that got us here:

Lies

Arrogance

Greed

Ego

All of those things lead to the breakdown of personal integrity, which leads to the breakdown of the family. And it allows corruption into our lives. It's what gives us Bernie Madoff.

Again, it's important to focus on the political side of the tree; it's important. Bret Baier did an amazing job doing just that last night, as he grilled the president and held his feet to the fire. But we'll be endlessly fighting the health care battle and the cap-and-trade battle and the green jobs battle and the tax battle until we fix the system.

How do you do it? Listen to this quote on George Washington from William H. Wilbur, author of "The Making of George Washington":

"Greatness of moral character, forthright honesty, quiet modesty, thoughtful consideration for others, thoroughness, kindness, and generosity. During the American Revolution, and for more than 50 years thereafter, young Americans were inspired to attain these qualities by the vivid recollections of men who had served with George Washington."

Each and every day you must remind yourself of three words: faith, hope and charity. They are seeds on the liberty tree. And these three things have been perverted over several decades.

We must plant them again.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
