Obama’s epic fiscal cliff flip flop

The fiscal cliff is rapidly approaching, and no one can seem to agree on a possible solution. The White House is calling the Republican plan "magic beans and fairy dust", but there plan isn't any better.

While speaking to the press, Jay Carney said: " It's a couple sentences -- it's not a plan to say that we're going to magically increase revenues through loophole closures and deduction caps with not a single element of specificity. So we don't know who pays, we don't know what we're talking about in terms of actual legislation to increase revenues. It's magic beans and fairy dust."

Oddly enough, In 2011 President Obama said, "What we said was give us $1.2 trillion in additional revenues, which could be accomplished without hiking taxes -- tax rates -- but could simply be accomplished by eliminating loopholes, eliminating some deductions and engaging in a tax reform process that could have lowered rates generally while broadening the base."

In other words: magic beans and fairy dust.

Many Republicans are now saying they need to negotiate in order to avoid the fiscal cliff. While Glenn and Stu don't agree with compromising the values of conservatism, they have thought about suggesting letting the President get everything he wants so when it all comes crashing down he has no one to blame with himself. But as they pointed out, he'll just ask for more until he has someone else to blame.

"They'll just make up new stuff until you say you oppose it and they'll blame it on that. It's always moving the goal posts. The point for the President has nothing with the fiscal cliff, nothing to do with raising revenue, and it has little with raising taxes on the rich. What it has to do he wants to vilify the other side and he comes in as the hero," Stu said. "I don't think he has any intent whatsoever to make any deal."

Glenn pointed out that if the Bush tax cuts expire and people are unhappy, he'll get to negotiate new tax cuts will become the Obama tax cuts.

"It's all Republican's fault, and then he'll have the biggest tax cut in American history," Stu predicted.

"Really, the ones you should be pissed at are the Republicans. Where are the Republicans. Where are they? You didn't know this was coming. This is your plan? This is your plan? With the greatest minds available on planet earth, you can go out and hire any firm and anybody this is your plan," Glenn said.

Glenn said that with no one offering any solutions in Washington, it becomes clearer every day that people have to take care of there own families and communities. They need to be prepared for tough economic times ahead, and they need to be prepared to take care of their own needs because the federal government will be out of control.

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.
