Glenn Beck: Another Clinton fib

GLENN: If I hear another politician tell these stories, I'm going to blow my head off.  I can't take it.  I listen to these stories and I'm like, I can always find a bad story.  I can find a bad story.  You want a bad story?  I'll give you a bad story.  Have you heard about the children without hands?  For the love of Pete, stop with the individual stories.  I get it.  But now they got this story from, just from a deputy sheriff that apparently came up and said, you know what, Hillary, I heard a story.  I heard a story.

So what does she do?  She goes on stage and she tells this story.  Listen to this.

HILLARY CLINTON:  But I want to tell you.  You know, I heard a story that has just kind of haunted me.  I was visiting a couple of families, small town on the banks of the Ohio river, talking to the deputy sheriff there and he told me about a young woman who worked at the Pizza Parlor in town.  She worked for minimum wage.  She don't get many tips at the Pizza Parlor.  She was living --

GLENN:  Stop.  How does she know you don't get a lot of tips at the Pizza Parlor?  She may be -- they may know her as, you know, Tip Fanny.  You get so many tips because of her fanny.  You don't know she was -- was that part of the story?  "You don't get a lot of tips at a Pizza Parlor."  Well, especially if I'm waiting on a politician, I hear you clowns never leave tips.  And then you blame it -- oh, it was the secret service.  Are you blaming me?  They didn't do it again?  Well, next time we are leaving Tip Fanny just all kinds of tips.

HILLARY CLINTON:  Pretty modestly.  She got pregnant.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She was having trouble.  She went to the hospital.  Hospital said, well, you don't have insurance.  She said, no, I don't.  They said, well, we can't see you until you give us $100.

GLENN:  Stop, stop.  Has anybody ever gone to the hospital where they've said that to you?  You've got to give us $100?  What kind of hospital?  It's like, you want my watch?  What kind of hospital says -- I mean, "You know, I tell you what, give me 50 bucks.  I got a syringe out in the back."

Stu, have you ever heard that?

STU:  I don't think so, no.

GLENN:  No.  Of course, I have health insurance.  So I don't know.  I can't relate to the little man.

STU:  That's right.

GLENN:  You've got to give me $100.  First of all, --

STU:  That's not going to cover.

GLENN:  It's a private hospital.  If they said that, then it had to be a private hospital.  You cannot reject people at the hospital.

STU:  You can't reject for emergency care.  So if she's just going tore --

GLENN:  She had a -- she's stillborn -- what is it?  Still birth?  She's going to give birth to a stillborn baby.  I could be wrong that it's not in the emergency category but I'm -- maybe it should be.

STU:  I think emergency rooms --

GLENN:  That and children without hands.

STU:  If it's an actual emergency, I don't think any hospital can refuse care.

GLENN:  Right.

STU:  I think that's part of the law.

GLENN:  Okay.  So anyway.  So the $100, got to give me $100 or I can't see you.  Then she goes on.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She says, where am I going to get $100?  They said, well, come back --

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  "But where am I going to get $100?"  Was all of these details in the story the way she heard it?  I mean, this is just -- when you hear how the tale was told to her, did he say that?  Did she have any clue as to the conversation that she's now making up?  But she said, where am I -- excuse me.  If you do it with an English accent, you'll even be better.  "Excuse me, sir."  And she came in and she had soot all over her face.  She was dressed like a little English orphan who had been cleaning chimneys and just walked right out of a Disney movie.  "But where am I going to find $100?  Oh, gosh, by golly, that seems like an awful lot of mean.  Oh, woe is me.  If I only had a bit of chocolate, everything would be okay.  But that's too much to ask for, for somebody who doesn't have health insurance."  I mean, come on!  She goes on.

HILLARY CLINTON:  They go, well, come back when you have the $100.  She came back about a week later.  She was having problems.  Same response:  We need $100.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  She went away.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  I know there's -- the other hospital went out of business.  That was the other part.  She couldn't go to the hospital that was here in town because, you know, that one's closed down.  Wonder why.  Wonder why that one's closed down.  Do you think?  Maybe because they can't make a profit because maybe there are no doctors because everybody's suing the doctors all the time, nobody wants to -- do you remember when we were kids?  Yes!  When I had the MG that worked!  Do you remember when we were kids and everybody's mother was like, "You can be a doctor."  Who wants to be a doctor now?  You are sewing on eyelids to kids that don't have eyelids in third world countries and you are doing that happily because you can't help anybody here because everybody here is suing you all the time.  Who wants to be a doctor now?  Gee, I wonder why the hospital went out.  Because they didn't have health insurance?  Or because of the red tape and the litigation!  Maybe it's just -- I don't know.

HILLARY CLINTON:  Next time she came back to the hospital, she came in an ambulance.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And she was in distress.  And the doctors and the nurses worked on her and couldn't save the baby.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And she was so, so sick that they had to airlift her to the next biggest town that had a Medical Center.

GLENN:  Oh, boy.

HILLARY CLINTON:  And everybody worked for about 15 days trying to save her life, but they weren't successful.

GLENN:  Stop.  Hang on just a second.  Boy, that bill's going to be big, huh?  Bet it's more than $100.  Everybody worked on her to save her life.  They worked for 15 days.  They airlifted her for 15 -- for 15 days they worked on her, taking her in a helicopter and everything else.  Boy.  Did they tell anyone that she didn't have the $100?  Because I don't even think they will take you up in a helicopter to sightsee for 15 minutes for $100.  Notice all of the details she has here?  She that is airlifting, the 15 days, everybody working hard, the conversations that she had?  "But I don't have $100."  Where is someone like me going to find $100?

HILLARY CLINTON:  And I'm sitting there listening to this story as this man is telling me and I'm thinking, you know --

GLENN:  This man.

HILLARY CLINTON:  It just hurts me that in our country, as rich and good a country as we are.

GLENN:  Yes.

HILLARY CLINTON:  This young woman and her baby died because she couldn't come up with $100.

GLENN:  Stop just a second.  My gosh, that would be horrible, wouldn't it, Stu?  Wouldn't it be horrible?

STU:  If that had happened, yes.

GLENN:  If that had happened, that would be horrible.  Unfortunately as Hillary told this story time and time again, people were, you know, listening to this story and somebody went, wait a minute, that sounds like the story of my daughter.  That's not true.  She wasn't poor.  She had the $100.  She had health insurance.  What are you talking about?  This is -- you've totally changed this story.  And you're using my dead daughter now as a campaign speech when it's not even true?

So Hillary Clinton this weekend after this came out was, of course, dodging bullets, you know.  I don't mean that -- that's unfortunate.  I don't want to make it sound like she's been dodging bullets.  I meant, you know, not literal bullets.  You know what I mean?  The kind of bullets that Hillary Clinton usually dodges, the, you know, mythical bullets.  I mean -- what did you say, Stu?

STU:  The hospital was a not for profit.

GLENN:  A not -- it was a not for profit?  Well, why wouldn't they take somebody without $100?

STU:  I don't know.

GLENN:  If you are not trying to make a profit, that's the hospital you go to.  I mean, the one you would go to and you're like, "I got $100.  I have a $100 bill.  Could I get some help, please?  And the profit hospital would say, $100 ain't going to cover squat.  Come back when you have a stack of cash.  But the not for profit hospital which, I must be out of my mind, the not for profit hospital, that should be the one that would take her.

STU:  You'd think.  And, of course, they were.  She was under care of the obstetrics practice affiliated with the hospital.

GLENN:  For 15 days?

STU:  She was never refused treatment and she was, in fact, insured.

GLENN:  Wow.  Oops, I could see how Hillary did this.  You know what she did?  She listened to someone who is, you know, at a rope line:  "Hey, I've got to tell you a story that I her."  I mean, you are kidding me, right?  The Clintons, the one that they say, oh, Matt Drudge is just nothing but a rumor mill.  Matt Drudge, oh, he's crazy!  He's completely irresponsible."  She's listening to somebody on a rope line and she's using it in a campaign speech to be able to get healthcare for the United States.  "It was so tragic and so sad that this country has to do that to a poor pregnant woman."  Completely false.  And there's like no effort to even check it out.

Now, here's what I really love about this story.  This is my favorite part.  So what you're saying is that Hillary Clinton was basing her policies and making the case for her policies on bogus information, on emotion, on fearmongering, that she was trying to push her policy through on information that couldn't be verified or -- I'm sorry -- wasn't even verified.  I mean, it's not even like she had every intelligence agency on planet Earth verifying the same information.  I'm sorry.  I want to be accurate.  Except for Syria.  I mean, Syria, you throw Syria in there and you're like, oh, well, Syria's is not true.  Oh, well, I didn't know that.  Why weren't we listening to Syria?  You know?  And Sean Penn.  We had Sean Penn and Syria trying to correct this information?  Oh, crap.  I didn't realize that.  (Sighing).  All right.

But Hillary Clinton can come out against that and make this huge -- but she can make a case for her policy by listening to somebody in the rope line.  That's the same.  That's the same.  I haven't checked with Syria yet.  Maybe we got this story from Syria.  It could have been Syria that came out and said --

STU:  Syria is standing by the story, that she didn't have insurance.

GLENN:  That she didn't have insurance?  Oh, okay.  Well, I don't know who to believe.  They were right the last time.

 

 

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."

COVID-19 Now Killing Victims Who Don't Have COVID-19 https://nypost.com/2020/04/02/coronavirus-nyc-emts-stop-taking-cardiac-arrest-patients-to-hospitals/
  • EMTs in New York have been given a directive not to transport heart-attack victims to hospitals if they cannot be revived at the scene.
  • Prior cardiac arrest victims would have been transported to hospitals for further life-saving procedures, but with hospitals being overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients, heart attack victims are solely in the hands of local EMTs. If EMTs cannot restore a pulse at the scene, victims are to be left there to die.
  • "Artificial ventilation and/or compressions must not be delayed," the memo states, adding that chest "compressions must begin as soon as it is determined the patient does not have a pulse."
  • But the guidelines change if the patient cannot be revived before arriving at a hospital.
  • "In the event a resuscitation is terminated, and the body is in public view, the body can be left in the custody of the NYPD."
China Lied, People Died Trending on Social Media https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-01/china-concealed-extent-of-virus-outbreak-u-s-intelligence-says
  • US Intelligence Services has concluded what the Internet has known since January: The Chinese Communist Party lied about total infected and total deaths due to Coronavirus.
  • Citing a report provided to the White House last week, officials confirmed that US Intelligence concludes 'gross' underreporting of total cases and total deaths, especially from Hubei Province.
  • Many have speculated that numbers coming out of China, Iran, North Korea, Russia and other totalitarian countries have been dramatically underreported, by as much as a factor of 10 according to official British Intelligence reports.
  • The early misrepresentation of data by the CCP may have lead some Western Politicians and epidemiologists to underestimate the seriousness of COVID-19 and delayed response in Italy, Spain, the UK and the US.
  • Though why anybody would have believed anything the Chinese Communist Party had to say remains an open question...
Italy's Death Toll Far Higher Than Reported https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/italys-coronavirus-death-toll-is-far-higher-than-reported/ar-BB122vvc
  • In the town of Coccaglio, an hour's drive east of here, the local nursing home lost over a third of its residents in March. None of the 24 people who died there were tested for the new coronavirus. Nor were the 38 people who died in another nursing home in the nearby town of Lodi.
  • These aren't isolated incidents. Italy's official death toll from the virus stands at 13,155, the most of any country in the world. But that number tells only part of the story because many people who die from the virus don't make it to the hospital and are never tested, therefore they aren't included in official numbers.
  • "They were all sick, they all had flu-like symptoms and difficulty breathing," stated a nurse from one of the nursing homes. "We had no ambulance to get them to Milan."
  • In the areas worst hit by the pandemic, Italy is undercounting thousands of deaths caused by the virus, a Wall Street Journal analysis shows, indicating that the pandemic's human toll may end up being much greater, and infections far more widespread, than official data indicate.
  • As stretched and sometimes overwhelmed hospitals fight to save their patients, many other people die unseen and uncounted, including elderly people in out-of-the-way locations.
  • In addition, the health-care crisis can lead to a surge of deaths from other causes that would normally be treatable.
  • "There are many more dead from the virus than are officially declared... People died and they were never tested because time and resources are limited," Eugenio Fossati, deputy mayor of Coccaglio, says of deaths caused by the virus.
More Numbers Hard to Trust as Bodies Left On The Streets in Ecuador https://www.scmp.com/news/world/americas/article/3078077/coronavirus-bodies-are-being-left-streets-ecuador
  • Coronavirus: bodies are being left on the streets in Ecuador.
  • 'They fall in front of hospitals or in back street alleys, or in small villages…no one wants to recover them,' says the mayor of Ecuador's largest city.
  • The army is placing unclaimed bodies in refrigerated cargo containers at the port while authorities pursue plans for a new cemetery.
  • The corpses have been overwhelming Guayaquil, a port city of 2.8 million at the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in Ecuador.
  • Over the last few days, several were wrapped in plastic and left on the streets. Others have lain unclaimed in hospitals and clinics that have been overwhelmed by infections. The city morgue is full.
  • The majority of the dead are believed to be victims of the virus, but nobody can say for sure how many. There has been little testing.
  • The country has confirmed 2,700 infections and 93 deaths - 60 of them in Guayaquil and its immediate surroundings. But municipal officials there said they have recovered at least 400 bodies in the last 3 days.
  • Mayor Cynthia Viteri, who announced that she has also tested positive for the virus, said the national government should be responsible for collecting the corpses.
  • "They're leaving them in the villages, they are stacked in front of hospitals," she said in a Twitter video message to residents late last week.
  • Many local villages in Ecuador are simply burying the dead in unmarked graves, which will make official counting of COVID-19 victims impossible in the weeks ahead.
50% of Viral Spread Comes from People With No Symptoms https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/01/health/us-coronavirus-updates-wednesday/index.html
  • Researchers in Iceland have confirmed earlier reports from Hong Kong that a significant amount of viral spread is caused by carriers who have no symptoms.
  • In the US, Doctors at the CDC have confirmed asymptomatic spread, but estimate a number of about 25%.
  • If true, then the case for all persons to wear masks, even those who don't have symptoms, becomes much stronger.
  • To prevent further spread, the top infectious disease expert in the US says health officials are reconsidering guidance on face masks.
  • Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would "lean towards" recommending that the general public wear face masks "if we do not have the problem of taking away masks from the health care workers who need them. The public can stay home to avoid infection, but health care workers cannot," he said.
  • "We're not there yet, but I think we're close to coming to some determination," Fauci said.
Ship vs Train... Ship Wins https://abc7.com/usns-mercy-coronavirus-train-crash-derailment/6069395/
  • A Locomotive Engineer in Los Angeles has been charged with 1 Count of "Train Wrecking", a Class A Felony under Federal Law, after purposely derailing his freight train while attempting to sink the US Hospital ship Mercy.
  • Eduardo Moreno, 44, intended to hit the ship, saying he thought it was "suspicious" and did not believe "the ship is what they say it's for.'"
  • Moreno admitted to crashing the train intentionally but said he did not plan it out in advance. It is believed that he acted alone.
  • He allegedly made statements to a CHP officer that included "You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to. People don't know what's going on here. Now they will."
  • Officials say video from inside the train's cab shows Moreno holding a lighted flare during the incident.
Biggest Issue With COVID-19 in Malaysia: Nagging Wives https://www.npr.org/2020/04/01/825051317/dont-nag-your-husband-during-lock-down-malaysias-government-advises-women
  • Malaysia has the largest number of COVID-19 cases in Southeast Asia with more than 2,900 and counting.
  • This week, Malaysia's government also had a serious public relations issue after an ill-conceived plan went online.
  • Malaysia's Ministry for Women, Family and Community Development issued a series of online posters on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #WomenPreventCOVID19. It advised the nation's women to help with the country's partial lockdown by not nagging their husbands.
  • The ministry also advised women to refrain from being "sarcastic" if they asked for help with household chores.
  • Additionally, the Ministry urged women working from home to dress up and wear makeup.
  • After some negative response on social media, the public service messages have been removed from the Ministry's Facebook page.

MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell was lambasted by the left and mainstream media after he announced at a White House press briefing on Monday that his company will start making tens of thousands of masks to fight against the spread of coronavirus. Lindell also thanked God for President Donald Trump and encouraged Americans to turn back to God in this time of crisis.

Read the details here.

Whether it was his support for President Trump or strong religious beliefs, no one has lit up the media quite like Mike Lindell. He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Monday to talk about the president, the 'horrible, crazy media' and how he's not afraid to keep speaking out about his faith.

"I think people are going to quit being brainwashed by this horrible, crazy media -- they know who they are -- and the public is going to see the amazing job that our president is doing," Lindell said. "I've done interview after interview today. I'm taking all the bad ones on -- I think I'm going on 'The View' tomorrow I love it. I want to go right into the hurricane. Finally, I get to speak out for Jesus like I want to."

News broke that German Finance Minister Thomas Schaefer reportedly committed suicide on Saturday due to the stress from the economic climate during the coronavirus crisis. Unfortunately, this headline may become more common place. Concerns are far beyond those of just hand washing, finding toilet paper and the latest White House briefings. There may be a secondary crisis growing — mental health and suicide.

Messages fill my inbox daily from parents worried about their teens showing signs of risk of suicidal ideation. Spouses concerned about the toil recent layoffs will have on their partners. Elderly family members are also vulnerable.

Last week, news a father of three dying by suicide made me want to scream to the world – "LISTEN!" We are losing too many of our human family. And I am afraid with COVID-19 on the scene, we are going to lose more than ever.

During the past six years — following the suicide of my 40-year-old sister — my mission has been to bring awareness and help prevent suicide. Everyone is exposed to suicide. You either struggle with depression/anxiety, you love someone that struggles, or like me, you have already lost someone to suicide. That is literally everyone on the planet. Bigger numbers than even the virus.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

Little known fact. Springtime is a peak season for suicides. Even compared to the holidays.

So, pile on the constant stream of news, stats about COVID-19 deaths and a lock down on social distancing, even the most emotionally skilled individual may be drowning in vulnerability and at risk.

What can be done?

Social distancing, not isolation

Even though we are standing 6ft apart in the grocery stores, and no longer going to church together, humans need connection to survive.

Free communication apps like Marco Polo are a great way to not hide behind a text. Whether it is on video chat or old fashion letter writing, making connection a priority is crucial for our survival.

Emotional check-in

The new normal seems to be changing by the hour. It is hard to keep up, recalibrating with all the change. Just like the importance of taking temperature to check for virus symptoms, we need to monitor our emotional temp. Try the one word check-in, at dinner time, simply by asking, "How am I feeling today?" It can be a great barometer.

Naming our feelings keep them tamed.

It's Ok to not be Ok

It is crucial to our survival to frame this crisis with a mental health back drop. Suicide, depression and anxiety concerns should be at the top of the STAY HOME and STAY SAFE list. If you find yourself feeling helpless or having thoughts of self-harm, please reach out for additional support. Therapists are using online formats to serve their clients. Call your doctor or one of the many 1-800 numbers.

No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family.

If you are reading this and struggling. Please remember, we will never be better without you. No one is an extra, disposable member of our human family. We will make it thru this COVID-19 crisis stronger and closer than before. No longer will we take hugging our neighbor for granted.

And maybe, just maybe we will someday find the vaccine that stops suicide virus from spreading.
