Obama finally admits: Yes, we did raise taxes

During an interview with former President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative on Tuesday, President Obama finally admitted something that any taxpaying American has know for a very long time: The Obama Administration has raised taxes.

“Today I came in and I was kind of in a mood. And I'm in a mood today because I can't take the lies. And little, little things that all kind of add up,” Glenn said. “The president called anybody who said they have raised taxes, and I can't take how many monologues we heard from other show hosts saying that anybody who says he's raising taxes is a liar and the President was on the campaign trail saying, ‘They're lying about taxes and we have lowered taxes, et cetera, et cetera.’ Yesterday, the President came out and said, ‘Okay, well, yes. We did raise some.’”

PRESIDENT OBAMA: First of all, I think it’s really important to point out here that the total cost of the Affordable Care Act to provide health insurance for every American out there at an affordable rate is costing about the same amount over the course of 10 years as the cost of the prescription drug bill that President Bush passed — except that wasn’t paid for. We felt obliged to actually pay for it and not just add to the deficit.

We did raise taxes on some things. We, for example, said that for high-end income individuals, you can pay a slightly higher Medicare rate — Medicare tax. So we bumped that up a little bit.

So what now? For all of those who have been sounding the alarm for years and have been trying to disprove the inaccuracies and falsities propagated by the media and this Administration, what happens now. Glenn, speaking from personal experience, described how his reputation was maligned because he spoke out about what has now proven to be true.

“How do I get my reputation back? How do I get my life back? I told the truth, I stood through the storm, I tried to explain it, I used their own words, I showed it to you in paper, in their own writings, in their own words and they destroyed me. They destroyed my reputation. I helped them, of course. You know, by allowing them to get me all wound up and go crazy because of the lies, I helped them. I got it. I got it,” Glenn conceded. “But then they come out and admit it, and where do I go? Where do I go to get my reputation back? More importantly, on some of these things that are so important, where do the people go who are going to be facing these death panels? Where do they go? When there are shortages and we have a government bureaucracy making all of these decisions and you're now stuck in the trap, where do they go? They go nowhere. It's too late.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
