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.

 

 

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."
