Shocker: Is Oprah Winfrey a Tea Partier?

Liberals love paying taxes, right? April 15th is the best day of the year, a holiday where you get to hand over your hard earned money to the government so they can use it on all those roadside projects that slow down your morning commutes. So why doesn’t Oprah love writing that IRS check every year? Glenn had some thoughts.

During an interview with Piers Morgan, Oprah said that she signs every check over $100,000. Piers asked, “Does it hurt you?  Do you feel pain, physical pain?”

Oprah responded, “The most pain I feel is ‑‑ and my accountants will tell you this.  Every time I write a check to the IRS, it's a ceremony.  They come in ‑‑ for years they came in with wine.  Now they come in with tequila.”

Glenn was a little shocked. After all, this was the same Oprah who campaigned hard for Barack Obama, a proponent of social justice and spreading the wealth around. Glenn said, “If you really believed that social justice was achieved through the IRS, you wouldn't come in with wine or tequila.  You would come in with champagne.  Congratulations.  Do you know how much social justice you have just provided?  Congratulations.  You would view it as a celebration.  It would not be painful.”

Like Oprah, Glenn hates giving money to the IRS. “It's hard to write those IRS checks,” he said.

“If you're part of the 50% that pays income tax in this country, what is the sign that pisses you off every time? “ Glenn asked. “Here are your tax dollars at work,” he said, referring to the roadside construction signs.

What check does Glenn not have an issue signing? His tithing check. Glenn explained, “You know, I have to tell you, I pay 10% of my income to my church and it's tithing, and I remember the first time Tania and I ‑‑ this is before we were members of our church.  We're reading about tithing and we're like, 10%?  That's crazy.  We prayed on it and we really did our, you know, our research and our homework and read and prayed and read and prayed and read and prayed and we're like, okay, you know what?  It's all of God's money; let's give a minimum of 10% and let's just see how it works.  That check was the hardest check to write of my life.”

Ultimately, however, it was his most rewarding check and continues to be the best one he writes every year. He said, “Last year I paid over 10% on just that [tithing] check.  And I was happy.  Tania and I looked at each other and went, it's not enough.  And we were happy about it.  Why?  Because it's something we choose to do.  It's something that we believe in.  We can follow the money.  We choose to do it.  If we choose not to do it, we don't do it.  And we've also seen the direct correlation of blessings.”

Glenn was surprised that Oprah would be such a fan of champions of social justice. He said, “Here's a woman who's given $300 million to charity and loves to do it and she's intelligent.  She knows that that's an investment in people.”

“I don't understand it.  Oprah, if you were paying less in taxes, would you pay more to charity?  Would you give more?  I know I would.  I'd give a whole lot more to charity.  Reduce my taxes.”

“Why are they forcing us to only go through the government?  It's not right.  And somebody like Oprah who does give.  I don't expect Joe Biden to give it.  I mean, he's like, hey, I gave a guy at a shoe shine store a tip of a dime the other day.  Told him not to spend it all in one place.  But Oprah gets it.”

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."
