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: I don't know about you, but I was very excited to hear about details on Barack Obama's climate bill. This is ‑‑ I mean, this is a big plan to give you, the hard working middle class American a tax credit. Not a refund. A tax credit. Fantastic. It's a flawless plan really. Mandate a limit to the claim for global warming, then tax those polluters who go over the limit. It's great. Crime and punishment really. And you benefit. Permits are going to be distributed to companies that meet increasingly lower pollution targets. Those other companies, you know, especially those smaller ones without any kind of lobbyists, they are going to pay. Obama had called for auctioning off 100% of those pollution permits which he said would have raised $650 billion over the next decade. That's all free. I mean, think of the huge tax cuts coming your way. Middle class, man, you are going to be rolling in the money. That's $65 billion right into your pocket. That's $2,200 for every person in the United States, free! Well, anything that sounds, you know, too good to be true is too good to be true. When are we ever going to learn that? First of all, it's not free. The tax credit is specifically designed to help pay for the massive increases in energy costs to consumers since the energy companies have already said they are going to pass the cost of cap and trade on to customers. So there goes a lot of your money. Oh, that's why they called it a tax credit.

Secondly, House Democrats announced on Friday that they are not going to auction off 100% of the pollution permits. No, they're going to auction off a slightly lower number, just a little bit lower than 100%. They are going to auction off 15% of them. Uh‑huh. Didn't they say when they decided they were going to ‑‑ when the progressives brought us the income tax, they said, don't worry, it's not going to be very much ‑‑ it's only going to be 1%. 1%. They claimed there would be riots in the streets if income tax ever went over 5%. It will never happen, uh‑huh, uh‑huh. Well, they are only going to do 15% of these. So you'll get 15% of the money originally, you know, designed for you. It was right here. It's, you get it. Skyrocketing cost of your monthly energy bill which will go up directly because of something the government did, they are going to give you back about $300 a year, $25 a month. Where's the rest of the money, 85% of it going? Quote: The rest of the money will be given away to a variety of industries and states. Wait a minute, this sounds like that California story we had a minute ago. To ease the cost and help pay for improvements in energy efficiency and investments in clean energy technology. Let me translate: A variety of industries? Oh, I doubt anything was shady going on here. No way GE gets any of this money. Helping states ease costs? In other words, you get to pay for California's failed liberal policies through cap and trade so they can keep doing, you know, the same failed liberal policies. And finally, the "Help pay for investments in clean energy technology," hey, it costs a lot now, but think of all the savings you'll get later. Just like the ones you got from that climate bill!

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
