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!"

VOICE: Just in case you are not getting enough socialism from Washington, try Glenn's new audio book, the March to Socialism. Available now in bookstores everywhere. Free copies not available as part of the stimulus package.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
