Video from BigGovernment.com

GLENN: Here is the story. Pat, where do we start on the audio? You've been going on the audio.

PAT: We start with the ACORN helper, the worker searching for tax code to somehow legally label because the man and his girlfriend come in and she's obviously a prostitute, or at least they're posing as a guy and his girlfriend prostitute and they run this business and they're looking for housing.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: With ACORN.

GLENN: She has to live on a boat and turn her tricks on this boat and she would like a house. But they talk about how everybody is discriminating against them because prostitution is illegal.

PAT: They have been everywhere.

GLENN: They have been everywhere.

PAT: And there's too much prejudice.

GLENN: The banks won't take their money. They can't get a loan for a house and so they go to ACORN because they want ACORN's help, your tax dollars, to help them buy a house for prostitution. So here's the beginning. Hidden camera and microphone. Wait until you see the video tonight on television. Here it is.

VOICE: The type of businesses okay. The type of business or service you provide, let me make sure there's a code for it, okay?

VOICE: A code for prostitution?

GLENN: Got it? This is an accountant. This is a woman who, first they walk in and they have this one woman sitting at a table and they say, hey, look, we want a house. And, you know, they explain the whole problem. He says, let me go get our accountant. She says, let me go get our accountant because our accountant, she's a genius. She can make everything okay.

So she walks in and she's, let me see if there's a code for what you do, for your taxes. And he says play it again from the beginning. He says, for prostitution?

VOICE: The type of businesses okay. The type of business or service you provide. Let me make sure there's a code for it, okay?

VOICE: A code for prostitution?

VOICE: Well, yeah. Because we have to I have to have a name and a code number.

VOICE: Well, I don't know that there will be a code number.

VOICE: But I'm going to look in there. I'm going to get my list.

VOICE: Okay.

PAT: Yeah, there's no code for prostitution obviously.

GLENN: But she's going to get a list and see if she can find what does fit. Gang, we are seeing the beginning of the end. Now, let me warn you on something. The arrows are going to come fast and furious. The attempt to destroy me and people like me is going to be of biblical proportions, but I have told you before, prepare to see great and mighty miracles. You stand fast. You stand fast. You must learn this information because you must prepare to be the only voice speaking out.

She goes and she says, I need to get my book. I need to go get the tax book, the tax code so we can find what is happening.

PAT: Given who wrote the tax book, I'm surprised there's not a code for prostitution frankly. I mean, why don't they have a why don't they have a code.

GLENN: I don't know.

PAT: That's just

GLENN: They are just trying to help people out here, Pat. Let's not get distracted.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: Now, does she come back with a tax book?

PAT: She comes back and the girl she's still searching and the girl asks about what kind of loans they give and so she gets a little advice from the worker.

VOICE: I know you guys offer housing and loans and stuff, but would you would they be in safe neighborhoods or would there I mean

VOICE: First of all, you've been looking for your own house. What's your you are buyer ready.

VOICE: Yeah.

VOICE: The good thing is you'll get your house where you want to live at.

VOICE: Okay.

VOICE: And I'll tell you do not ever, ever, where ever you live and be proud of it.

GLENN: Stop for

VOICE: You are 19 years old. Be proud of it.

GLENN: Be proud of prostitution. No matter what you do, be proud of it. She is a prostitution with a big shower curtain ring earrings and everything else. You just be proud of it. You go buy your house where you want to buy your house. Okay?

PAT: Nothing wrong with a bordello in any neighborhood.

GLENN: In any neighborhood. Who wouldn't be proud to have a bordello right next to you, okay? She's just a hard working 19 year old girl, selling herself for sex. All right. Go ahead.

PAT: Okay. So then so it goes on a little bit but then there's I think this is the guy asking about, can't we name it something else? They're trying to figure out they are still trying to work on the code and they are trying to figure out where to go with it. And is there any way around paying the taxes.

VOICE: Okay. Let's see what we got here. Combination food, service and drink... (mumbling). Correction agencies, credit bureaus.

GLENN: They are just looking for

VOICE: We'll probably have to name it something else.

PAT: Other than prostitution.

VOICE: In order for you to file a return for the business

VOICE: What's a return?

VOICE: A tax return. In order for you to file a tax return, you have to

VOICE: So I'm returning the taxes to the government?

VOICE: No. You are going to have to pay taxes on the money you make.

PAT: See, the girl's a prostitute since she was 13.

GLENN: She doesn't file taxes yet.

PAT: She's not real hip to it.

VOICE: Is there any way around that, though?

VOICE: Yeah. Don't file. I mean

GLENN: Stop. So you know, I have an attorney and Judge Andrew Napolitano who has gone over this tape with me last night and we are compiling the charges and how long these people should go to prison for. But I want you to know, what did you just hear? Is there any way around paying taxes? ACORN receiving your tax dollars says, sure; don't file. As if, that's fine, that's an option. You got that option. I mean, why not? Be proud of it. You are already a prostitute. Why not evade income tax as well.


 

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

Like most people, biologist and science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now?

Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the left practically worshipped Dr. Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology.

If you watched Glenn Beck's special last week, "Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World's Most Dangerous Lie," you learned some very disturbing things about what our government officials — like Dr. Fauci — were doing around the beginning of the pandemic. On the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast," Glenn sat down with Ridley to review what he and "Viral" co-author Alina Chan found while researching — including a "fascinating little wrinkle" from the Wuhan Institute of Virology called "7896."
