Glenn Beck: Socialism - Climate Bill

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!

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
