New York introduces 88 new taxes, fees

GLENN: Yes, it's the most socialist time of the year and things are just going to get fantastic. These clowns don't have any idea. You know, I was talking to my wife this morning and I said these financial experts, all of these government agencies, these governments around the world, the central bank, everybody else so discrediting themselves with anyone who's paying attention that it's amazing to me that they just don't think somebody is going to wheel up some guillotines at some point. I mean, the arrogance of these guys. Now you have the prime minister of Canada saying that a Depression is a possibility in Canada. You know, he's hoping that it's not going to happen but there's a possibility that a Depression is happening. You've got now the Fed cutting rates yet again. Even I know you can't cut rates at this point. You can't do it. You are going to have to print more money and if we don't have a money problem. We have a trust problem on the planet. And now there's a story today. They come out and they cut the rates yesterday. There's a story that came out today that just says, "Hey, the dollar as a safe haven for the rest of the world, those days are over" because now with the rate cut from the Fed, nobody wants to put their money in dollars anymore. Gee, nobody wants to put their money in dollars anymore? Hmmm, what's that going to do? Gee, when people don't want to buy treasuries anymore, hmmm, how are we going to borrow all of the money for all of these bailouts? Gee, who's going to give it to us? Well, New York has an idea where we can get the money. They have got new taxes. $15.4 billion budget gap now. They are trying to close it. Paterson, who is the stereotypical blind leading the blind, he's actually literally blind, he may be the only one with any kind of vision in the government. Paterson has been calling for budget cuts. The people in New York, they're not really interested in budget cuts. Oh, they've cut the budget some, but they're still 1% larger than they were last year. May I just ask if there's any common sense left on this planet? How can you be 1%, spending 1% more than last year when your state has wild out-of-control unemployment with the high end wage earners? But they won't listen to him about cutting it even more. Instead they are going to raise taxes. They are going to raise a host of taxes now including an iPod tax that taxes the sales of downloads on music and other digitally delivered entertainment services. There's some extreme measures here. That's what Paterson says. There are no broad-based income tax increases, but they do have some smaller taxes on movie tickets, taxi rides, soda, beer, wine, cigars. Massages are also going to be taxed. It also extends sales tax to cable and satellite TV services and removes the tax exemption from clothes costing $110,000.

Now, here's the interesting part. The Democrats are saying that they are nickel and diming working class families and the speaker of the assembly in New York says that they need to go and they need to go after the wealthy. What wealthy are left in New York City? I mean, the wealthy in New York City were the ones that were working in the hedge funds which, by the way, we told you yesterday are collapsing. Wall Street, that's collapsed. Here's what the Democrats say: We will be fighting this tooth and nail. We think it's irresponsible to make this level of cuts and no ask for the wealthiest New Yorkers to help ease the pain. This level of cut? You're still paying 1% more! You're still expanding your budget. Paterson didn't rule out income tax increases but said spending cuts are a priority. You think so? He defended the fee in sales tax increases. He said they would be less harmful to the state's economy. He said if you -- listen to this. This is a Democrat speaking: If you start taxing at times when revenues are receding, you'll drive job creators out of the state.

So gang, here's the good news, I guess. New York is raising taxes and there's more taxes to come. A lot of businesses are located right in New York City. Texas, Florida, any other state that doesn't have a state income tax, oh, make room; the moving trucks will be coming from up north.

It's really, it's truly amazing to me. I did an interview yesterday with Newsweek magazine and they're doing a story on how, you know, Fox is going to be dead and nobody's going to watch Fox because the world has changed and Obama is now the king of the universe and, you know, obviously capitalism has been discredited and conservatives are all dead and withering away and blah, blah blah, blah blah. And so I did this interview with them and I said, you know what, I'm a common sense person, I'm not a Republican, I'm not the leader of the opposition for Barack Obama. For the love of Pete, the guy's got to succeed. I just hope that he does it with some common sense. I'm not going to sell out my values, I said, but how can you call me a Republican when I've been bashing Bush for how long. I'm sick of both of these parties. What people don't understand is we've got to get out of these little cartoon characters that everybody has created, and I've been part of it. I mean, you know, I'm not going to give up bashing Michael Moore because that guy's just a full-fledged socialist nut job, but I will tell you this: I think it's important that we don't call people socialists or communists unless they are. Sean Penn is a communist. Sean Penn is for full-fledged fascism. He hugs, practically licks the face of Chavez, points out how good he is for the people overall. That guy's a communist. And I know that doesn't mean anything to anybody but, you know, I kind of, I'm just kind of against the whole fascism thing. Call me crazy. I know, I'm old time. That's kind of the way I roll, you know. I don't like dictators. It's just the way I am. What a hate monger. "What have you got against dictators now, Beck?"

But most people in America, they just don't even understand it anymore, and I believe that's by design. I mean, that's what we've been teaching in schools. We've been teaching that communism is okay, socialism is okay. Socialism isn't a stepping stone. That's just another great step in a Great Society. No, it's slavery. That's what it is. It's slavery.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
