Glenn Beck: Who's Telling the Truth About Health Care?





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

If we're going to restore the country — to "fix" the problems we have — first and foremost we must be grounded in truth. The lies this administration are putting forth are piling up — almost as much as the flies. Here are just a few quick examples:

President Obama "rejected" the notion that the new health care bill was a "tax increase":

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, ABC NEWS: Merriam Webster's Dictionary: Tax — "a charge, usually of money, imposed by authority on persons or property for public purposes."

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: George, the fact that you looked up Merriam's Dictionary, the definition of tax increase, indicates to me that you're stretching a little bit right now.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But your critics say it is a tax increase.

OBAMA: My critics say everything is a tax increase. My critics say that I'm taking over every sector of the economy. You know that. Look, we can have a legitimate debate about whether or not we're going to have an individual mandate or not, but...

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you reject that it's a tax increase?

OBAMA: I absolutely reject that notion.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Now, in an effort to defend the health care bill in federal court, the main argument that the Obama administration is using is the Anti-Injunction Act, which restricts courts from interfering with government's ability to collect taxes: "No suit for the purpose of restraining the assessment or collection of any tax shall be maintained in any court by any person, whether or not such person is the person against whom such tax was assessed."

The president, speaking to religious leaders, called out anyone who was saying this health care bill would federally fund abortions:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

OBAMA: There are some folks out there who are, frankly, bearing false witness.... You've heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true."

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Notice the use of the term "bearing false witness." He's trying to shame them. We showed you last week how Pennsylvania was the first state getting federal funds ($160 million) for the mandated high-risk pool, which covers abortions. New Mexico was the second state, but quickly decided to drop elective abortion from its list of covered procedures. And now Maryland is getting $85 million in federal funds for its federally mandated high-risk insurance pool, which will cover abortions.

We told you this health care bill was first and foremost about redistribution of wealth. We were said to be "obstructers of progress" and getting in the way of reform. But two days after the bill passed, The New York Times headline read: "In Health Bill, Obama Attacks Wealth Inequality."

Then Obama appointed Donald Berwick to head Medicare and Medicaid:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

DONALD BERWICK: Excellent health care is by definition re-distributional.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

President Obama said the "truth" about health care reform was that you'd be able to keep your doctor:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

OBAMA: So here's the truth.... If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

OBAMA: Under the reform we seek, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

OBAMA: If you like your doctor, you can keep seeing your doctor.

OBAMA: Here's a guarantee that I've made.... If you've got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.

OBAMA: No matter how we reform health care, I intend to keep this promise: If you like your doctor, you'll be able to keep your doctor.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

This weekend, under the headline "Insurers Push Plans That Limit Choice of Doctor," a New York Times article notes: "That could come as a surprise to many who remember the repeated assurances from President Obama and other officials that consumers would retain a variety of health-care choices."

We told you that these were coming and we were called crazy. We see how it played out. Now, there's more coming that I believe will change everything. We'll probably be called crazy again. But look at the record and ask yourself: Who's telling the truth?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
