Glenn Beck: Another tax promise up in smoke

America's March to Socialism: Why we're one step closer to giant missile parades

is now available as an audio book...

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents more truth behind America's March to Socialism.

GLENN: Well, unlike his vice president, President Obama's very, very, very good at choosing his words carefully so as to always leave himself an out. Well, he didn't do that when he said this in Dover, New Hampshire on September 12th. Quote: I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax, not any of your taxes. He might be in sort of safe waters at least so far if he, you know, had only said federal income tax, but he didn't. And he's ready to use the liberal term to implement even more taxes that will disproportionately affect the poor. He's already done it by jacking up the cigarette tax, ironically to pay for healthcare overhauls. Now the Senate finance committee is looking at more taxes on soda, liquor stores, company payrolls and health savings accounts. Soder, I know, it's like I'm up in New Hampshire. You know, I know he's super, super smart and everything and so I apologize for asking such a dumb question, but I mean, us here in intellectual inferiority land would just like to know who's affected more by the higher taxes on cigarettes, soda, liquor, transfats? Ben Affleck or Ben Jacobson Jensenberg Steinbergjensen that's making minimum wage? You know what I mean? My thought‑challenged friends and I racked our feeble little brains for more minutes than I could count, which is only three. We still couldn't figure it out. Then we gave up and we went, you know, back to chewing on our fingers and, you know, that's probably best that we leave the heavy thinking to you and your uniquely qualified friends from Harvard. You know, you'll just tell us how to live our lives or better yet just regulate things so we don't even have to think about it. I'm just glad that you figured out that a soda tax will disproportionately affect the rich because I couldn't figure that one out. In fact, I'm looking at the paper. This is yesterday's paper here in New York. New or raise taxes? This is what's happened just in New York. Deposit on bottled water, $20. This is yearly. This is the average person. Deposit on bottled water, $20. Increased beauty shop fees, $25. Higher taxes on beer and wine, $200. Increased subway fare, $125. Increased bridge and tunnel tolls, $250. Cigarette tax hike, $548. Increased utility assessment, $48. Hike in New York City water bill, $70. Rental car tax boost, $15. Plastic grocery store bag fee, $10. Plus, existing cell phone, ATM, cable, traffic ticket and other fees increase, $200. A total of $1,511 for the average New Yorker for state and local taxes alone. Now, you add on what they're doing on income tax and then you add on what Barack Obama is doing in a new soder tax and what do you got? I mean, I can't wait to see the look on Ben Affleck's face, you know, when his financial life is just brutally crushed when he says, "I'm going for the Mello Yello, man!"

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."
