The Obama Agenda Part 3 - Steven Moore

The Looters Are Coming


Stephen Moore

 How many body blows can an already wobbly economy take from Washington’s new and old gang of politicians before it completely topples over into a comatose state? That’s the question that looms as Barack Obama moves forward with his first one hundred day agenda to stimulate, borrow, spend, devalue and bailout the ailing U.S. economy and seemingly every bankrupt industry.  I fear that the left is feeling politically invincible these days now that they control every lever of power in Washington.  They are like the forces of the Dark Side after they have defeated the Jedi Knights in The Empire Strikes Back.

Get ready for the Big Green, Big Labor and Big Trial Lawyer agenda to rain down in a steady stream of job killing initiatives that expand their political power and share of the shrinking pie at the expense of the rest of us.  These are the people who Ayn Rand described in her classic novel, Atlas Shrugged as “the looters and their laws.”  These people calling the shots now don’t create wealth, they mean to take it from me and Glenn Beck, and you, and you…  The more successful and wealthy you are the bigger bullseye you have on your chest.

So here is the rundown of what I call the onslaught from the left.  Caution those of feeble heart should not read on.

  • $850 billion destimulus package  -- I refuse to call this a stimulus.  The idea here is that if the government spends and borrows and prints nearly $1 trillion we all get jobs and get rich.  It’s the Bolivia economic model.  Probability of passage 80%


     

  • Forced union rules  --  Get rid of secret  ballots for elections to unionize factories and plants.  So much for democracy.  This is the payback for the $400 million the union bosses spent to elect Democrats.  Probability of passage  50%


     

  • Hillary Health Care – Obama wants a new version of government run health care.  And why not? Socialized health care has worked so well in Canada and the U.K.  Just don’t get sick. – Probability of passage 50%


     

  • Cap and trade energy tax – This is the mother of all tax hikes, $1.2 trillion over the next decade.  The greenies and their patron saint Al Gore are drooling for this new tax because it will cripple American industry and our manufacturing capacity.  Good bye jobs but this is the price we pay for our environmental crimes of the last half-century.  Probability of passage 50%


     

  • Soak the rich  -- Mr. Obama wants to raise the income tax, the capital gains tax, the dividend tax, and the payroll tax.  That’s all.  But only the rich – that is people who create jobs, take risks, start businesses, work hard, etc.  – will pay.  So half of all income taxes will be paid by 1% of Americans.  Yes, that’s fair.  Probability of passage 50%.


     

  • Don’t drill, don’t drill, don’t drill.  Barack Obama is likely to seek a law reinstating bans on offshore drilling for oil and gas in the outer continental shelf, Alaska, and in the oil shale rich states out west.  Wow, that’s a great way to create jobs!  And a great way to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.  NOT!  Probability of passage 75%


     

  • Fairness doctrine -- To make sure all of this liberal big government agenda isn't derailed by the likes of Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, the Democrats want to pass the "Fairness doctrine," to make sure that they get equal time on the radio and TV. Have these people ever heard of NPR and Katie Couric?  Probability of passage 50%

Yikes!  That’s a big dosage of economic cyanide the left wants America to swallow.   If this whole agenda goes through, in 2009 the federal budget will run the budget deficit to $2.2 trillion --  in a single year.  That's more borrowing in twelve months than the federal government did in 200 years!

So what will you and I and Glenn and all the others of us who still believe in freedom and the principles of limited government that our Founding Fathers set our for this nation do? Will we strap on our armor and get set for fighting the political fight of a lifetime to preserve free market capitalism, or will we put on diapers and cower under the covers with the rest of the bed wetters and hope these real life goblins go away? I say we fight the arsenal of economic lunacy of the looters on the left even though we are outnumbered and outgunned.    All that is at stake is the future of the American idea.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."
