Obama upset he has money he doesn't need

Could Barack Obama be the worst capitalist ever? After all, he doesn’t want small business owners to be able to keep their money – but he’s not coming out and saying that. Instead, he’s trying to paint the rich as the bad guys. Glenn breaks down what Obama is really saying on radio today.

“You know, I do not want, and I will not accept a deal in which I am asked to do nothing. In fact, I'm able to keep hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional income that I don't need, while a parent out there who's struggling to figure out how to send their kid to college suddenly finds that they've got a couple of thousand dollars less in grants or student loans,” Obama said. “That's what the revenue debate's about. It's not because I want to raise revenues for the sake of raising revenues or I've got some grand ambition to create a bigger government.”

“We're not even talking about the real rich,” Glenn explained. “In America we're not talking about the real rich. The real rich, the real wealthy, the Bill Gates of the world. They don't take a salary. They don't do that. That's capital gains. That's, everything is in a trust fund. Everything is protected. They're not taking they're not working a job. You're talking about the people who make $250,000 plus. That's not George Soros.”

“What President Obama is talking about is not taxing the people like Bill Gates or even Rupert Murdoch or anybody like that. That's not who's going to get hit by this. This is the people that are climbing the ladder, somebody who's $250,000.”

“I guarantee you if you've ever worked for a small business, that person may make around $250,000,” Glenn added. “They're making $250,000 a year and they're paying people.”

“So what are they going to do? They will cut the salary or cut the expenses of things like healthcare, benefits, they won't expand. What do you think that does not economy?” Glenn added.

“This guy is either the dumbest capitalist that I've ever met. The guy doesn't understand capitalism. He's just the dumbest econ guy on the in the history of the world, or he's not going for a capitalist system.”

“He's got every Harvard, Princeton, Columbia grad ever to graduate that's still alive, and I think they might have resuscitated a few that have died! He's got consultants from the Center For American Progress and George Soros. They're not dumb. They're not dumb. So what is it that they're doing?”

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:

On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
