GLENN: From Radio City in Midtown Manhattan, third most listened to show in all of America. Don't worry about the don't worry about the tax day thing because that's I mean, the taxes, Barack Obama has made a promise and in fact, it's not a promise. I believe that it is a firm pledge. Do we have the firm pledge?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family.

GLENN: No family.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Making less than $250,000 a year.

GLENN: Got it.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Will see any form of tax increase.

GLENN: Any form.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, not any of your taxes.

GLENN: Not any of your taxes. Again this isn't a promise, start it again. He didn't promise. He said I

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan.

GLENN: He makes a firm pledge, okay, he makes a firm. Remember, you won't see any form of income tax sorry, any form of tax increase I'm quoting him. You will not see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, not any of your taxes will go up. He repeatedly vowed that. Not one single dime. Read my lips. Now in office Obama, who has stopped smoking but admitted that he slips now and then signed a law yesterday raising the tobacco tax 62 cents a pack now to $1.01. Other products saw similar and much steeper increases. Wait a minute. Hang on just a second. I thought he said he's not going to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 a year and yet here we are. Boy, it's amazing how many promises can be broken in a short eight week period. It's weird. I wish, I wish someone spent endless hours on radio and TV trying to tell people that he wasn't being honest about things. Gosh, I wish somebody was doing that. No, no, wait. Hannity was on. I was just being crazy. The largest increase in tobacco taxes took effect despite Obama's promise not to raise taxes of any kind on families earning $250,000 or individuals under $200,000. By the way, this is from the Associated Press. This is one tax that disproportionately affects the poor who are more likely to smoke than the rich. Wait a minute. That's got to be wrong. Every smoker's got to be making over $250,000.

Let's be open minded here. This will never happen. We'll never get these people. Call 888 727 BECK. Can you clear some of the phones, please, Sarah? I just want to talk to anybody and you only have to clear one line because there's only going to be one person, if, if this person even exists. Anybody who makes less than $250,000 and you're a smoker. 888 727 BECK. Then we can, then we can and only then can we confirm that Obama has butchered yet another one of his campaign promises. The extra money now listen to this. The extra money will be used to finance a major expansion of healthcare insurance for children. This is SCHIP. That represents a step toward achieving another promise to make sure all kids are covered.

So in order to not break one promise, he's got to get the money before we've even debated it, he's got to get the money from some place so he doesn't break a promise so he doesn't break another I don't even know how to figure this out. I need a map to understand Barack Obama. Obama said in the campaign that Americans could have both, a broad boost in affordable health insurance for the nation without raising taxes on anyone but the rich. He detailed his detailed campaign plans stated that his proposed improvement in health insurance and health technology is, quote, more than covered, end quote, by raising taxes on the wealthy alone. It was not based on raising the tobacco tax. Could he have been could he have more specifically broken this promise? I don't think he could have. That is, if we can find a smoker making less than $250,000 a year. The number is 888 727 BECK. I'm sure they are not there. I mean, if you're a smoker and you make 30 grand. Yeah, thank you, Stu, 249 grand, you know, whatever. Because remember, this is what was said on the campaign trail.

VOICE: People making less than $250,000 under Barack Obama's plan will see one single penny of their tax raised, whether it's their capital gains tax, income tax, investment tax, any tax.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
