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."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
