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.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
