Glenn Beck: March to Socialism - mileage tax

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's march to socialism.

GLENN: Yes, it's time for our march to socialism. Imagine being taxed for every mile that you drive. Sucks, doesn't it? That's not stopping several states from considering it now. Dateline Oregon, a task force is looking at having GPS devices installed in every new vehicle across the state to do just that, tax the miles that you drive. The rationale is that, well, people are driving less now and the traditional way to pay for transportation projects is drying up around the nation. So in other words, when the government implements these taxes, they never, ever factor in downticks for the income. The only solution, of course, is to create more taxes to make up for the shortfall. Isn't that fantastic? They could just make up for the shortfall by, you know, coming up with a new tax, kind of like you know the SCHIPS thing? Yeah, remember that's being paid for by 23 million new additional smokers. I thought we were trying to get people to stop smoking. And when they do, what are you going to do about it? "Don't worry, we'll just come up with a new tax." Here's a crazy idea. How about we just cut back on some of the things we're buying and can't afford? What do you say? Even a crazier idea when it comes to transportation projects, why don't we just, why don't we just all agree that it shouldn't take 80 million years to add a lane on a bridge? I'm just -- I know, that's crazy that I could suggest government would be able to finish a project under budget and maybe under time. I know that will never happen.

The other rationale is that even when people are driving more, they need this new mile tax because -- you ready for this? This is going to make blood shoot out of your eyes -- the wonderful new high-mileage vehicles are not producing enough tax revenue. So in other words, the thing that was going to pay for your vehicle -- you know you buy one of these hybrids, "At least it's a good idea because I buy less gas," no, no. Pete Rahn, the head of the Department of Transportation had an idea of pay for every mile you drive idea. He said we'll end up paying for what we drive, where we drive and when we drive. Wow, thanks, Pete, for not even attempting to think of another alternative. Rahn envisions a tax where, quote, if you drive a Hummer or whatever, a vehicle that might be from 30 years from today at 7:30 in the morning on I-70, you are going to pay a higher rate. If you are going to drive a Civic on the side streets at 10:30 in the morning, you'll pay a lower rate or vice versa. The vehicle doesn't matter. Wow. Sounds like the mileage tax is a dream come true. Only one obstacle now stands in the way of his dream. Quote: The hugest impediments to implementing this type of system are the privacy issues. Americans don't like the idea that someone or in the reality there would be some machine would know when you drove or where you drove. "Yeah, yeah, that's one of the problems that I have with it. You are not making me feel any better with the some machine qualifier." But the other thing we don't like is another government solution being more taxes! The good news is the concept now is gaining federal support.

Last year -- and I didn't even know this organization existed. You want to know how to cut taxes? Get rid of the National Surface Transportation Police. What is the National Surface Transportation Police? Or, the Revenue Study Commission. It was established by congress and it reported that a mileage tax should be strongly considered. There's already a study underway looking at implementing the mileage tax. The original reason for doing this was the loss of revenue due to less driving, or those pesky high mileage vehicles that the government is trying to make us drive and make GM build. So after one of the most severe gas price spikes in decades, a shock to the people's system, the state net loss on tax revenues had to be huge, right? Had to be enormous. The states are just panicking, yeah. In Missouri the revenue from the 17 cent gasoline tax and diesel tax is expected to be $498 million, down from $520 million. That's a 4% drop in revenue, and they want some machine now due to a 4% drop in revenue. They are going to do it no matter what we say. We're on a march to socialism, ask the loss of tax revenue is just their way to implement and change us into more taxes, a way for us to stop driving those SUVs all over the place. But since they're so desperate for cash, they've got to do something because that's what the American people -- you've got to do something. You've got to do it right now, and the government will say, "You're right. It's an emergency. We've got to act now." So while they are waiting for that government study to finish up on the mileage tax, some of the states are just going to jack up the gasoline tax another 2 cents per gallon.

VOICE: That was even more overwhelming evidence that we are destined to be a bunch of socialist pigs very, very soon on the Glenn Beck program.

We did our homework over the weekend; we did the research so we can tell you what is likely coming from Senate Democrats regarding President Trump's Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Based on our research and the anonymous people who have already come forward to talk about Coney Barrett's youth, these are the main shocking things you can expect Senate Democrats to seize on during the confirmation process…

A man has come forward under the banner of "#MenToo," to say that in second grade, Amy Coney Barrett and her best friend at the time, cornered him at a birthday party at Chuck-E-Cheese and "injected him with a full dose of cooties." Which, if true, would obviously be disqualifying for serving on the highest court in the land.

Then there's a woman who says when she was nine-years-old, she lived on the same street as Amy Coney Barrett. She alleges that Coney-Barrett borrowed her VHS tape of Herbie Goes Bananas and did not return it for at least six months. And then when she did finally get the tape back, the woman says Coney Barrett did not even bother to rewind it. The FBI has interviewed at least two witnesses so far who say the tape was indeed not rewound and that it was very upsetting to the owner of the tape. Again, if true, this is troubling – clearly not the kind of integrity you want to see in a Supreme Court justice.

Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it.

The same neighbor also dropped a bombshell allegation about the drinking problem of Amy Coney Barrett and her closest friends. Apparently, in their elementary school days, they liked to drink milk – and lots of it. The neighbor says she "frequently" witnessed Coney-Barrett and her friends chugging entire cartons of milk – often Whole Milk, sometimes Chocolate Milk, occasionally both at the same time through a funnel.

Unfortunately, shooting-up cooties, injurious rewinding, and potential calcium-abuse are not even the worst of it.

A third person has now come forward, another man, and this is just reprehensible, it's hard to even fathom. But he alleges that in fourth grade, when they were around ten-years-old, Amy Coney Barrett and a group of "four or five of her friends" gang-GRAPED him on the playground during recess. He alleges the group of friends snuck uneaten grapes out of the cafeteria and gang-GRAPED him repeatedly in broad daylight. In other words, and I hate to have to spell this out because it's kind of graphic, but the group led by ten-year-old Amy Coney Barrett pelted this poor defenseless boy with whole grapes. He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

He recalls them "laughing the whole time" as they were gang-GRAPING him.

Obviously, even if just one of these allegations is half-true, no Senator with a conscience could possibly vote to confirm Coney Barrett. When there is a clear pattern of destructive childhood behavior, it always continues into adulthood. Because people do not change. Ever.

Fortunately, for the sake of the Republic, Democrats plan to subpoena Coney Barrett's childhood diary, to see what, if any, insights it may provide into her calcium habits, as well as her abuse of illicit cooties and the gang-GRAPING incident.

We will keep you posted on the latest, but for now, it looks like Democrats will find plenty in the reckless pre-teen life of Amy Coney Barrett to cast doubt on her nomination. And if not, they can always fall back on her deranged preference for letting babies be born.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.
