Obama unleashes more taxes, regulations

Now that President Obama doesn’t have to worry about running for re-election he is free to really enact the things he wants to. Not surprisingly that means more taxes! Glenn went off today on radio about one of those second term taxes - the death tax. You’ll never guess how much government wants when you die.

"When we come back from vacation, we'll be living in a new America. ObamaCare begins by the time we come back and also the new death tax. Now the new death tax that will affect over 520,000 family farms, the new death tax now jumps up to 55%," Glenn said.

"Think of this. A family farm can be worth - with the land and the tractors and everything else - can easily be worth a million dollars," he said.

"If you have a decent size farm, you're not a millionaire, you're not a billionaire that they disparage all the time, you're just a farmer, they'll take 55% of everything you have. You can't pass that along to your family. It is absolutely immoral. What makes the government think that they're entitled to more than half of everything you accrued during your lifetime?" Pat added.

FOX News reported:

Rancher Kevin Kester works dawn to dusk, drives a 12-year-old pick-up truck and earns less than a typical bureaucrat in Washington D.C., yet the federal government considers him rich enough to pay the estate tax -- also known as the "death tax."

And with that tax set to soar at the beginning of 2013 without some kind of intervention from Congress, farmers and ranchers like Kester are waiting anxiously.

...

Two decades ago, Kester paid the IRS $2 million when he inherited a 22,000-acre cattle ranch from his grandfather. Come January, the tax burden on his children will be more than $13 million.

"If you're in a decent tax bracket, you're already taking 50% of my income, between state and local and federal taxes, over 50%.  And all the sales taxes and everything else.  So I've worked my whole life and you have you taken 50% of what I have earned already," Glenn explained. " And they take 50% more."

He continued, "The farms are one thing.  You've also got stuff like ‑‑ you know, you own a few, you know, family pizza restaurants in a town.  Well, you have these expensive ovens, you have all this real estate that you probably own.  That doesn't mean you're making an entire gigantic salary.  That doesn't mean you're so profitable at these restaurants that you're driving around Lamborghinis.  But this equipment is there and you're going to lose half of this stuff because you pass away.  And the other thing is it encourages people to, if you are a rich person, it encourages you to either avoid taxes at all costs and push things outside of the country or push things in weird investments and trusts; or it pushes you to spend it instead of save it.  Like you're encouraging irresponsible behavior.  Like, if I go out and buy a yacht for no reason or I go lease, you know, a ridiculous apartment for the rest of my life that costs ten times what I should rent, I mean, then I'm not punished at all by this tax.  I get to just enjoy those things and if it goes down the drain and everybody's happy? "

Glenn further explained that because of the uncertain economy, he can't invest as much of his personal savings into his business because he needs to be prepared for uncertain economic trouble that might be coming.

"Now because I don't trust the economy, I have only spent half of what I could.  So I've pulled out of the economy and I've been much more cautious because I don't trust what they're going to do.  I don't know what it's going to do for us for ObamaCare and everything else," he said.

"Who do you think you are to take 50% of everything that I have done in my life?  55%, and take it from my children?  How dare you."

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
