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

GLENN: This is great. How many times did you hear this during the campaign: How could Obama be a socialist if he's cutting taxes for 95% of all Americans? How could that possibly be? Well, it's very easy to be a socialist and take from one small group of wealthy people and give it to everybody else to buy their favor. I mean, that's actually a standard feature. That car comes loaded with that. I'd like, "Ooh, is that the new Buick Socialist?" "Yes, it is." "Does it have redistribution of wealth?" Oh, sure, it's standard on that.

How many points did the campaign promise, "I'm going to cut taxes for 95% of Americans." How many people bought that, how many people? Well, enough to win the election, right? He argued this on two fronts. One, it's not a real tax cut. The tax cut he's offering has an income cap that keeps falling and falling. And even if you get it, it's going to be overwhelmed by thousands of dollars in increased energy costs away from his global warming taxes. Number two, what in Barack's history makes you believe that he's actually going to cut taxes for anyone? What evidence is there that he actually cares about cutting taxes? Everything in his record points to the fact that he really enjoys doing the opposite. Well, here we are, two full months into his presidency. He has now spent more than even most critics including me could have possibly imagined. We have the largest deficits in our history by far locked in for the next 10 years and now this from ABC News: On a conference call with reporters, budget director Peter Orszag indicated that while 98% of the budget markups in the House and Senate are on par with the administration's budget blueprint, some campaign trail promises may get left on the cutting room floor like... wait for it, wait for it. Let me give you a second just to guess. 98% of the things that he wanted and he promised are in the budget. That means of every 50 things he wants, he's only not able to get one. What's that one thing? What's that one thing he really wants, he really, really cares about that he's not going to be able to get? Wait for it. Remember he wants it so very much. Give you a second to think. Time's up. Oh, what is free milk? No, sorry. While 98% of the budget markups quoting from ABC News in the House and Senate are on par with the administration's budget blueprint, some campaign trail promises may get left on the cutting room floor like middle class tax cuts. What? But did he get the free milk? Actually that's not true. To extend the movie analogy, tax cuts won't be on the cutting room floor because they never made it into the cutting room. They were never flamed. They were never in the script. They weren't discussed at any pitch meeting. The only place tax cuts ever appeared was in the trailer. Barack Obama is like a Ben Affleck movie. The trailer looks great but then when you get there, you're like, I don't remember seeing that advertised.

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.

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
