Glenn Beck: Legislating the Redistribution of Wealth





Watch

Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

What's in the House and Senate health care bills that is not in the Constitution? The redistribution of wealth.

Barack Obama told us he was a believer in that concept during the campaign:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BARACK OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success, I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance at success too. And I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That didn't faze most Americans. They're looking for something much bigger, I guess.

According to CBO Director Douglas Elmendorf: "I concluded the talk by emphasizing that fiscal policy is on an unsustainable path to an extent that cannot be solved by minor tinkering."

None of these people advising the president or writing these bills in Congress, are advocating small changes. We're talking about massive, sweeping changes.

Americans showed up by the hundreds of thousands at the various tea parties to demand that Congress stop their out of control spending and debt. But look at these bills — 2,000 pages? They are fundamentally transforming America in these pages. They are not interested in minor tinkering — these are massive changes to our way of life.

The Senate plans to pass this mess before Christmas. The time is now to stand up or the decision will be made for you.

I know you don't want to believe any of this – neither do I. But we've shown you who the president has surrounded himself with. These are not free-market system lovers who just want to increase America's prosperity.

We showed America the admiration that White House Communications Director Anita Dunn has for China's brutal communist dictator — Chairman Mao – one of the two people she said she turned to most:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANITA DUNN, INTERIM WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR: Mao Tse Tung and Mother Teresa, not often coupled with each other, but the two people that I turn to the most.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The response from other media outlets? Nothing. In fact, they just keep reporting her continued attacks on Fox News – which she renewed over the weekend, even as she heads out the door.

Then there's manufacturing "czar" Ron Bloom:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

RON BLOOM, MANUFACTURING "CZAR": We know that the free market is nonsense.

We kind of agree with Mao, that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We've told you that Internet "czar" Susan Crawford was a member of an international socialist group and of course is a huge advocate of the so-called "Net neutrality" movement – a movement spearheaded by the Marxist "Free Press" organization.

There's the lovely and talented FCC diversity "czar" Mark Lloyd – not a fan of free speech, but a huge fan of the socialist/Marxist revolution in Venezuela:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MARK LLOYD, FCC DIVERSITY "CZAR": In Venezuela, with Chavez, really an incredible revolution — a Democratic revolution.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

We can't forget science and technology "czar" John Holdren, who also spoke of wealth redistribution:

(BEGIN AUIDO CLIP)

JOHN HOLDREN, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY "CZAR": The rate of growth of material consumption is going to have to come down, and there's going to have to be a degree of redistribution of how much we consume, in terms of energy and material resources, in order to leave room for people who are poor to become more prosperous.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

So, it's not just redistributing the wealth of America's wealthiest to America's poorest. Holdren is suggesting global redistribution of America's wealth. We take the wealth of our nation and send it to Third World countries.

Now you're not just talking about confiscating a few bucks from Bill Gates and Warren Buffet to give to some lazy slob that refuses to get off the couch and get a job. Now you're talking about spreading America's wealth to nations that don't have any wealth at all — and that affects all of us.

And science "czar" John Holdren isn't the only one talking about it. Andy Stern, head of SEIU and the top guest at Obama's White House, is a huge fan of spreading America's wealth and reciting communist slogans. Here's what Stern, who practically lives at the White House, believes:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS)

ANDY STERN, SEIU PRESIDENT: Our workers can have a chance to share in prosperity.

So the question is, how is everyone going to share in the wealth?

Workers of the world unite, it's not just a slogan anymore, it's the way we're gonna have to do our work.

I got in trouble for saying this with Glenn Beck but, I said workers of the world unite is not just a slogan anymore it's a way we're gonna have to do our work.

(END VIDEO CLIPS)

Andy Stern, who has visited Obama at the White House 22 times that we know of, presumably to advise the President on important issues — including health care — has repeated over and over his conviction that there must be wealth redistribution.

Not only that, but we have startling new audio from him, that we've been working with Breitbart TV to bring to you next week.

One of the things Andy Stern has said is that he knows there are "undocumented workers" who are members of his union. He knows they have illegal aliens at SEIU, not only from Latin America, but from all over the world.

He knows he's breaking the law.

What do you think is going on here? Stern is already driving down wages to bring us in line with the rest of the world and he's already increasing his membership around the world.

He is working on adding millions of members to his union rolls and he couldn't care less about where they come from, how they got here, what their motives and goals are or how it helps or hurts America.

Workers of the world unite!

Andy Stern is in this for Andy Stern.

Let's look at this logically. What was the problem at GM? Was it the product? No, GM builds great cars. The problem was that their really bad management entered in labor union agreements they couldn't afford. They were paying hundreds of thousands of people who no longer worked for them. It got to the point where it was so expensive to build their cars that they couldn't make it work anymore. They had to outsource their jobs.

And now, they're saying we should globalize? We need to spread our wealth around?

There are 3 billion people on Earth make less than $2.50 a day. So let me ask you a simple question: Which is more likely: That we'll be able to bring the rest of the world up to our standard, going from 75 cents a day to making over $300 a day? Or, is it more likely that the one really expensive country with the very high standard of living, will have to be brought down, to be more in line with everyone else?

You know the answer!

You might be thinking, OK, maybe Andy Stern has some ulterior motives and sure, he has shown up at the White House more than anyone else on Earth – still, that doesn't mean he and President Obama are on the same page, necessarily.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

OBAMA: I've spent my entire adult life working with SEIU. I'm not a newcomer to this.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Hmm. They do seem to be on the same page. And it does seem like Obama is trying to overwhelm the system right now with massive new government takeover programs — look at these bills.

Health care and the stimulus — and cap-and-trade bill is coming soon. On top of all of that, he's also saying that he's getting ready to try to jam amnesty down our throats again — right in line with what Andy Stern is saying.

Why, in the middle of the heated health care reform debate — and the cap-and-trade bill — would you also try for immigration, too? That's nuts!

Or is there a method to their madness? Could they be looking at the 20 million illegal aliens, who would suddenly be made U.S. citizens, as new American taxpayers who could then help foot the bill for all the rest of their plans? It would drive down wages and drive up tax revenues with tens of millions of new tax filers?

Look, Obama is insisting on all of this at once – his entire transformation of America package, all within the first year of his administration. Everything must happen right now or we're doomed. At the same time, he can't even make a decision on what to do for our troops in Afghanistan, even with a request from his general on the ground for more troops, sitting on his desk since August.

What we're talking about is the end of our way of life. They want to control you. That's not some wild conspiracy tale — they already control the banks, the auto industry, most mortgages in this country. They will have to ability to control the temperature inside your home with the passage of the cap-and-trade bill. And now they're trying to take control of one sixth of the U.S. economy — health care. They're talking about taking over the Internet in the name of "neutrality" — who asked them to? Where's the problem there?

They are moving at the speed of light. We need to get up off of our couches and get into their offices. Call your senators; show up in their office — peacefully and politely, but get there!

If we don't stop this now, Obama will succeed in his goal to "fundamentally transform" America.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.
