"It's not class warfare" (LOL)

President Barack Obama was on the defensive about his latest attempt to soak the rich and tried to explain that it was simply 'math' not class warfare that he was engaging in. Well gee, Barack, if it's just about math then why don't we take 100% from the wealthy! That'll solve it! Oh wait, it won't - since 100% of the money from the wealthy still would not cover America's debts. Glenn has reaction to Obama's class war in the clip above (COMING SOON).

Read the transcripts below, clip coming soon:

GLENN: Yeah. I'm just saying. What? Okay. So, anyway, let's go on to some less bright news. Of course, we have the President, you know, starting -- starting, I think, race problems, stirring the pot, class problems, stirring the pot.

PAT: No, he's not. No. Both he and --

GLENN: No.

PAT: -- James Sperling, his economic advisor, said it's not about -- it's not about class warfare at all.

VOICE: There has to be shared sacrifice. They are for spending cuts and spending constraints, but as the President called for they don't believe you should put all the burden on the middle class, on seniors, on the most vulnerable and then ask nothing from the most well-off. So, this isn't about class warfare, as they say. It's about what our country's always been about and that's shared sacrifice and --

PAT: It's about shared sacrifice and Barack made that clear yesterday, too.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Either we ask the wealthiest to pay their fair share of taxes --

PAT: Or.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: -- or we're going to have to ask seniors to pay more for Medicare.

PAT: Yeah, uh-huh.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We can't afford to do both. Either we gut education and medical research --

PAT: Gut it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: -- or we have to reform the tax code so that --

PAT: Don't forget police. You've got to get rid of police and fire fighters. Right?

GLENN: Of course you do.

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  -- corporations have to give up tax loopholes that other countries don't get.

GLENN: Do you know who else --

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We can't afford to do both. This is not class warfare. It's math.

PAT: Okay. It's not class warfare. It's math.

GLENN: Okay. Here's what I really think we should do. We should get rid of that charitable deductions thing. Remember that? That's the first ting he tried to do. The first phone call -- the first phone call he made after he was elected was to Mahmoud Abbas from the Palestinian Authority. He didn't call -- he didn't call England. He didn't call Germany. He didn't call China. The first call he made to a world leader was the leader of the Palestinian authority. Okay. Then, if I remember right, one of the first things he wanted to do was get rid of the charitable deductions here in the United States, trying to cut our legs out from under us right away to stop us from being good to each other, do everything he can to encourage us not to be good. He's just taking it on a different way now. He's just -- just trying to tax people to death at the top.

You know, I can't tell you how many hospitals you've been -- have you been to the Herman Flobigowich center for cancer?

PAT: Oh. Is that near the Herpanerfler center for cancer research?

GLENN: Yeah. For cancer research and the -- and the Pete Jobston center for eyes?

PAT: That's Jobston Berkstein.

GLENN: Is it really?

PAT: Yeah. It's Jobston Berkstein.

GLENN: This is all -- you probably know these names. They're all very, very poor people that really didn't do anything, didn't create an empire or anything. They just went out --

PAT: They just went out and built cancer centers.

GLENN: That's all they did. They took all the money they didn't have and built all these hospitals

PAT: And they employee how many people?

GLENN: None. They didn't --

PAT: But it could have been millions.

GLENN: It could have been millions that they employed but --

PAT: They didn't have any money. So, they didn't employ anybody

STU: We should point out that they're virtual cancer centers.

GLENN: They're in they're heads. They're thinking about them.

PAT: They're very close together in their heads.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: All three of those places.

GLENN: And it would be very, very great if these people could make enough money to build them.

PAT: Well, they would cure cancer.

GLENN: They're not going to be able to because people like Barack Obama, George Soros, and the Kennedys have trapped people now or are really trying to build a steel cage so nobody can go and build any of those hospitals, you know. We don't want --

PAT: Well, they're not. You look at a man like John Huntsman. He's not paying his fair share.

GLENN: No, he's not.

PAT: He's only given, what, half or two-thirds of this wealth already away.

GLENN: He's going to die broke.

PAT: Yeah. So --

STU: Some people might bring up the fact, Hey, you're just bringing up one individual rich guy and trying to make a rule based on it. It's not like they would ever do that with Warren Buffet. Oh, wait. That's exactly what they -- that's so weird that I said that and that's exactly what they did.

GLENN: So, let me ask you this, because this goes -- we're not class warfare. No, this is a -- this is a war on America's goodness.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Are you a nation that does good as individuals? America is great because America, as individuals, is good. We are good people. We help each other. That's what's made America great. That and -- that comes directly from the American religion that Ben Franklin talked about. Sir, what is the American religion? There is a God. He's going to judge us. We should serve him and the best way to serve him is to serve your fellow man. That's the American religion. Because we internalize that and I think it was bred into us -- I didn't say that.

PAT: Oh, my.

GLENN: I didn't say that. Oh my --

PAT: You did.

GLENN: -- here because that sounded a little like what the President said about hatred in white people and suspicion in white people and -- it's just bred into us.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street, that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into --

GLENN: Okay.

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  -- our experiences.

GLENN: Uh-huh. Okay. So, maybe I'm wrong. Maybe -- maybe goodness wasn't bred into us as Americans of all color. Maybe, instead, suspicion and -- and ill feelings bred into us for people that we don't know.

Anyway, we are not going to be a great nation if we don't continue to be good. He's cutting the legs underneath us on just about everything, but then there are several stories here that I want to give to you on religion. I don't care what religion you are. I -- quite honestly, if you're an atheist, that's fine, as long as you understand that what makes America great is serving your fellow man, not being forced into it, but doing it because you want to do it, choosing to do it, not just the government tells you to do it or forces you to do it, because you choose to. When we all choose, then America is good and America will be great.

Here's a couple of stories where we are absolutely under attack. I've never seen anything like this. Many times wrongful death is at the root cause of a lawsuit but what happens if the -- if the case is a wrongful birth case? In West Palm Beach, Florida, what a surprise, a couple sues a doctor and an ultrasound technician for negligence. The two claim that they would have aborted their son who was born with no arms and only one leg if they had known about his disabilities beforehand. The parents claimed that they would have never brought Brian into the world, had they known about his horrific disabilities.

PAT: When he finds out about this when he's 15 years old, he's going to feel pretty good about it.

GLENN: I think he's going to feel great.

PAT: That his parents sued for $9 million because he was allowed to be born.

GLENN: We would have killed you, son.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: We would have killed you because your life has no value, no meaning. You're -- it's a horrific situation that you're -- you would be better off dead! Says Mom and Dad. Oh.

PAT: They actually won four and a half million dollars in that lawsuit, four and a half million is what they were award.

GLENN: How can America be great when they have this going on and the judge and the jury don't say you've got to be kidding me. What kind of mother -- maybe we should -- maybe we should consider taking your son away from you, you monsters.

Now, devaluing life, let me go to this story. It's been out for awhile. Canadian mother who strangles her baby citing Canada's abortion laws, a rules court rules that an Alberta woman who strangled letter son with her underwear after secretly giving birth in 2005 will face no guaranteed jail time. The sentence was pretty astounding. She got 16 days in jail but she's not going to -- she's not going to serve. Naturally, quote, quote, naturally Canadians are grieved by the infant's death, especially at the hands of the infant's mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mom. The judge also rejected arguments that the single father and the grandparent also could face the same stresses of the mind as the mother who kills her own baby. The defense lawyer said it was unjust and almost mean to put her in jail for 16 days. You're right. It is almost mean to put her in jail for 16 days. It wouldn't be mean to put her in jail for a year or two years, five years, life. She strangled her child to death! Almost mean. She -- she strangled her son and then threw him over a fence and --

PAT: 16 days is -- was going to come from that, was going to come from the act of throwing the dead baby over the fence.

GLENN: Yeah. Not for killing

PAT: Not for killing.

GLENN: Just for throwing the baby over the fence. Yeah. Okay. So, we have a wrong -- $4.5 million awarded to a couple in Florida for wrongful birth, wrongful birth. This is taking the creator out of all of it. Wrongful birth. Sometimes he just makes mistakes. Life isn't worth -- do you know what this is? Look it up. Baby knauer. That's what that is. We're headed down this road.

Donald Trump announced his second run for the White House this week. And while Glenn Beck said he thinks Trump "did everything he needed to do" in his announcement speech — he was disciplined, didn't pick fights, and stayed focused on what's ahead — he still has some advice for the former president.

Watch the video clip from "The Glenn Beck Program" above to find out what Glenn believes Trump absolutely must do in order to reach as many voters as possible before the 2024 election. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Glenn Beck has warned that one day, you'll wake up and not recognize your country anymore. Are you there yet?

Governments at every level have been weaponized against Americans. The FBI shows up in full tactical gear at the homes of pro-lifers, terrifying young children and grandmas for the "crime" of peacefully protesting abortion. The ATF surprises legal gun owners on their doorsteps, demanding to see their firearms. State governments are trying to sneak in laws that allow the sexual mutilation of children — without the parents’ consent.

When we become confused as to what the government can and cannot do, we become numb to tyranny and take it on the chin, as we did with the COVID-19 mandates. And when the state comes knocking, we don’t know how to deal with it because we haven’t lived in that kind of country since 1791. Glenn warns we’re on the same road as every empire that ended in collapse.

On tonight's special presentation, Glenn features the stories of every-day Americans who have experienced government tyranny firsthand:
  • A gun shop owner who encountered a bone-chilling inspection by the ATF.
  • A father fighting for the right to see his twins after objecting to his 3-year-old son going through gender transition.
  • A woman who had almost $1M seized from her bank accounts even though she and her husband were never charged with a crime.
  • A couple who had their home raided by the FBI over a case of mistaken identity.
  • An FBI agent who turned whistleblower after he became fed up with the abuses he saw over Jan. 6 raids.

But tyrants can only exist when the people they are trying to subjugate forget that there are fundamental rights granted not by the state but by a higher power. And we have the blueprint to stop tyranny dead in its tracks. The founders armed us with the tools — we just need to know how to wield them. So how do peaceful Americans stand up to tyranny that comes in the disguise of “law”? Glenn and a panel of legal experts, including Sen. Mike Lee, arm you with the answers so you'll know what to do when the government comes knocking on YOUR door next.

CRYPTO CRASH: The REAL story behind Sam Bankman-Fried's FTX scandal

The fall of FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried has sent shock waves through the cryptocurrency world. But is this just another failed Ponzi scheme, or is there more to this story? On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn got a “Bitcoin for Dummies” guide from Marty Bent, who explained what actually happened with FTX, where he believes the markets will go from here, and whether this is connected at all to Bankman-Fried's massive donations to the Democrat Party.

Marty has devoted his career to safeguarding financial freedom from the tyranny of the government and elites — a major focus of his newsletter “Marty’s Bent” and podcasts, including “Tales from the Crypt.” He’s critical of the globalist vision for our financial future, which he sees as the result of a “progressive” movement to get rid of God.

On the podcast, Marty warned that the FTX scandal could make a convenient excuse for centralizing Bitcoin and ushering in more state control, mass surveillance, ESG, and social credit scores. In fact, he said, the Federal Reserve’s push for a digital dollar has already begun.
