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.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."
