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.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.

Every decision made by President Joe Biden has ended in "disaster," Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck.

O'Reilly joined the radio program to explain why he thinks there's only one "mechanism" Americans can use stop the Biden administration's mess.

"Give me one thing that [Biden] has done, just one, that's improved this nation. Everything that he has been involved with is a disaster. Everything from the COVID mandates, to the energy policies, to the economic policies, to the inflation, to Afghanistan, to the collapsing southern border, to the social woke business, to the denial of due process. Right across-the-board, there isn't anything this man has done, or stood for, that's improved America," O'Reilly said.

"But there is no mechanism to do anything about it until a year from this November: the midterm elections. That's the only mechanism that we have, under the Constitution. We elected this guy and he's there for four years. You neutralize him next November [2022], with the Republicans taking back the House and Senate, then he's done. [He] can't do anymore damage because you've got him in a hole. And he's not going to be proactive with executive orders. He's just going to stay there in his jammies for two more years. OK? So that's the only mechanism."

O'Reilly also tore into the corporate media for using its power to defend Gen. Mark Milley after news of his China calls broke. Is there any deterrence in American society anymore to keep our leaders and media in check?

"What does this say to the United States of America when you have two of the most powerful information agencies in the world — NBC, Comcast, and AT&T, CNN — actively deceiving you?" O'Reilly said. "They know what they're doing. And yet there is absolutely no way for anyone to hold them accountable other than not watching them, which has, of course, happened. You know they have no audience. But just the corruption level of the information flow to the American people is at an all-time high. We have never had a worse media in the history of this republic."

Twitter is full of fake communists. Privileged teenagers and 20-somethings who tweet about Karl Marx from their iPhone, safe inside their parents' house.

A recent example of this is the "What is your job on the Leftist commune?" meme. It began as a tweet from some anonymous Twitter Marxist, asking "What is your job on the Leftist commune?"

She continued, "I'm gonna be leading discussion on theory some days, making clothes from scraps other days, and making lattes whenever needed."

The tweet got thousands of likes, retweets, and comments. Things like, "Bringing everyone water. Pouring tea and hot cocoa for folx in the reading alcoves. Checking in and doing a pause-to-breath with folx."

By the way, "folks" is spelled with an "x" for some reason.

Other commune occupations included "proofreading pamphlets," singing, archery, cooking, crotchet, "guiding embodiment practices," tarot card reading, "identity politic lawyering." Therapist, librarian, prostitute, and "puppy kindergarten teacher."

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

They're basically parroting Marx, whose communist society sounds like Woodstock or Burning Man.

A magical place where "there are no painters but at most people who engage in painting among other things," which allows "everyone sufficient free time to take part in the general affairs of society — theoretical as well as practical," so that "there are no politicians but at most people who engage in politics among other activities."

Don't you know that communism is all about leisure and good vibes? A playground full of puppies and lattes.

Marx refers to "idle time" as a time for higher activity. He calls it "time for the full development of the individual."

Me Time. A life of spa days.

Generation Z is the first digital generation. The first generation to be born inside the internet. So it's no surprise that they have fallen for this kind of Marxist nonsense. If someone convinces you that Marxism will free you from work, of course you'd want it.

Now they're quitting their jobs in droves. The media is calling it "The Great Resignation," but really it's just a new version of Marx's anti-work movement.

Gen Z are incredibly progressive. And they expect the government to be involved. Decades of Marxist activism have finally convinced a generation that the point of work, the point of life, the point of government, is activism.

Pew Research Center found that seven in ten "members of Gen Z are more likely than older generations to look to government to solve problems, rather than businesses and individuals."

Seven in ten of Gen Z believe that the government should do more to solve problems. A majority of them are not proud of America, a majority of them hold negative views of capitalism.

They believe Marx when he says that Capitalism is only good for producing its own grave-diggers. We know that this is actually a description of communism. Actually, communism is much worse. Because it always results in mass graves.

They haven't realized that that the world that Marx foresaw is long gone. It failed. Repeatedly.

They don't realize that, even on the page, Marxism doesn't work. Because ultimately the greatest flaw of Marxism is that it forces us to choose between productive slavery and unproductive freedom. Either way, with Marxism we can never be free.

"The Great Resignation" is ultimately a crisis of freedom, identity, and exhaustion. It is, as noted in a recent Gallup report, an expression of great discontent. Gen Z feels like they have nothing to lose and nothing to gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain.

But in America, there's always something to lose and gain. They just need to have a little patience.

For the most part, Americans adhere to the libertarian maxim, "As long as you're not hurting anyone…." It's our undeniable belief in the goodness of the people around us. If you've traveled out of the States much, you know this to be true. There's a spirit inherent to America, and it is overwhelmingly good in nature.

Marx's utopia would ruin us. It would make us as lazy as Marx. A man who lived off other people his entire life. A man who had no loyalty to any nation because no nation wanted him. He was stateless. Do you realize how awful a person has to be for them to be stateless?

Maybe Gen Z just needs to see America at its finest.

Marx's utopia would quickly become disgusting. It would leave us feeling empty. Hopefully, they realize this before it's too late. For their own sake. Because, if America ever actually fell to communism, they would be the first ones against the wall.

When the government plans to spend $3.5 trillion that it doesn't have on a loose definition of "infrastructure," it's a good idea to know what's actually in it.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck revealed some of the expenditures Democrats hid in the bill, like a 10-fold increase in fines for employers who don't comply with the government's COVID-19 mandates, "equitable" bankroll for Biden's Build Back Better agenda, and "climate justice" funding.

"Let me tell you what's in our infrastructure bill, the $3.5 trillion bill," Glenn began. "Nancy Pelosi quietly tucked an enforcement mechanism into the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, passed it down to the budget committee, and sent it to the House floor. It's something you should know about, on page 168. I know, why read it? It's 2,465 pages."

Glenn pointed out the huge fees for certain businesses that refuse to comply with the Biden administration's proposed vaccine mandates. The fees could be as much as $700,000.

"Up to $700,000 ... that will kill all companies that are noncompliant. Kill them. That's 80 million of us who work in companies that are going to be fined in that way, if they don't bow the knee to the king," he said.

Glenn and Stu Burguiere went on to discuss more Democrat "wish list" items hidden inside this reconciliation bill, such as establishing "business incubators" who are authorized to disperse tens of billions of dollars to startup businesses in underserved areas, including the formerly incarcerated, and exclusive to businesses less that five years in operation or in "the planning stages."

"These sorts of businesses are the most risky place to put your money. Well, that matters when it's your money. But if it's not your money, who cares how risky it is. It's our [taxpayers] money so they don't care at all," Stu noted.

"Well, there's also $5 billion for climate justice block grants to pay for community organizations for, among other things, facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes," Glenn read. "Wait a minute. 'Facilitating engagement of disadvantaged communities in state and federal processes'? Organizing votes — that's what it sounds like."

"This is essentially all of us funding the fever dream of Barack Obama," Stu said.
